Awesome Food, Live MusicMy cousin and I met at LaGuardia and looked for a place to eat. LaGloria had good reviews so we decided to give it a try. If you go after 7 - get reservations! The restaurant is fairly small as are the tables. We sat near the bar - which is also near the band. The band is authentic Caribbean music and is a very nice touch. With the small restaurant and the live music the restaurant does get fairly loud. We were able to carry on a conversation, but it may have been easier in the rear of the restaurant.
We had the Nachos - they were outstanding, and a big portion. Then we both ordered the pork meal - it was also outstanding. Without any drinks, the total was $50 and we were stuffed.
I'll definitely return!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food and DessertThe food was really great. We had the plaintain & Yuca chips with Guacamole for an appetizer which was delicious. Both of us went for the roast pork which came with really crispy pork skins that were incredible. The sweet plaintains that came with it were so sweet yet had a nice crispness to the edges just the way I like it. The chef came out to greet us which was very impressive and the staff was very friendly. Dessert was sinfully good! I had the pan de puddin and it had this carmel sauce on it... ohhhh wow. Our only complaint was the drinks could have been better. Great food & dessert... ok drinks. I definately reccommend this restaurant.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife is a critic and iMy wife is a critic and i consider her to be the best chef in the world but to my surprise she not only gave high praise to the chef, she also complimented Ingrid's attention. Afterwards, my wife and I danced the night away in your lounge next door. She is already talking about an immediate return with friends.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband & I tried thisMy husband & I tried this restaurant for the first time this past Saturday night, & we were not disappointed! We got there early, it was quiet. By the time we left it was really jumping, the band was great! We started off sharing a few appetizers. We ordered the Ropa Vieja & the Ceviche, both were excellent. We shared the Paella, it was enough for the both of us. The chef came out & introduced himself, it was very nice. Looking forward to the nice weather so we can enjoy some outside dining.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
