Not willing to assign a table
Not willing to assign a table for 4 when there were availabe tables that remained empty.
Bottle wine list is very expensive for the level of restaurant

The place is really nice,
The place is really nice, the food is out of this world. We shared tapas and 1 paella with 2 jars of Sangria with 2 friends. It was fantastic.
The crab croquetes were simply delicious and melted in your mouth.

One Word: MMMMMMMMMM
Wonderfully spacious and warm atmosphere.Extensive wine list, creative cocktails and variety of in-house Sangrias. Food was beautifully presented, followed with the most wonderful aromas,tastes and textures! Difficult to decide favorites - Spanish omelet w/Potato & Onion; Scallops in Apple Cider Cava Sauce; Blue Crab Croquettes; Steamed Mussels w/Chorizo; Seared Hawaian Yellow Fin Tuna; Mac 'n cheese, jamon serrano, wild mushrooms, garlic, truffle oil - many more delectable choices we have sampled, ALL indescribably good!

The decor is lovely, the music
The decor is lovely, the music is a bit loud. The food was the big surprise and delight.
The fish and vegatbles are super fresh and so well prepared. The sauces make the meal. They are light but add that touch of unexpected Latino flavor.
I would definitely recommend and go back.

As soon as we arrived we felt welcome. Wait staff helpful and attentive. Food was great and so was Sangria. We had been at this site before under different restaurants and this was definitely superior. Hope it lasts as long as the Boxing Cat which was there for a long time. Will go there freguently.

We should know better than to go out on Saturday night. The noise level made our dining experience less than perfect...everything else was quite wonderful.

Nice romantic dinner
My husband and I had a nice romantic dinner at Bistro Latino in May 2013. Our only complaint is that it took a very long time for us to get our drinks and the waiters were not very nice.

A Wonderful Suprise
My husband, friends and I were pleasantly surprised to discover this excellent Spanish restaurant. We found it to be the best of the Spanish restaurants in Fairfield County.

mother's day brunch
I had a lovely Mother's Day Brunch here with my parents and my daughter. The menu was terrific - had something for everybody - and all was delicious. They had a kids menu on the Brunch menu, which was much appreciated.
I have eaten here before, and came back for the lovely food, good atmosphere, generous table sizes and distance between tables, and gracious service.
Couldn't have been happier.

Great local spot
I found this restaurant on Open Table. Was meeting a friend and looked for a place in the middle where we could meet. The service was fabulous - they couldn't be more attentive. The blood orange sangria was amazing - get the pitcher because one glass is just not enough. Thoroughly enjoyed our tapas - the flatbread was delicious as was the salmon tartare in the potato waffle crisps. Skirt steak entree was equally delicious. All very reasonable priced. I will definitely be going back.

Bistro Latino is one of our family favorite restaurants. The food is always wonderful; the service is exceptional; the wine list is excellent. Definitely a gem!

Top Notch Tapas
We love the idea of a dinner consisting of tapas. Bistro Latino has an extensive selection of such items; all that we have sampled so far have been excellent. It is fun to come to this restaurant with another couple or two and share selections. It makes for a satisfying evening, a culinary and a social treat. Service is attentive but not intrusive.

I've dined at Bistro Latino twice and enjoyed both experiences. The food was wonderful and the servers were very attentive. Very nice wine selection. The Tapas choices were interesting and delicious. Highly recommended!

very loud, but delicious food,
very loud, but delicious food, and impeccable service...they did charge us for a birthday desert which i think is just super tacky. if i tell a hostess at the restaurant its someones birthday, and to bring out a little something, there should be no cost, especially at a nice restaurant where were going to drop around 200 bucks on food and wine for 3 people.

The food was great. The Tapas
The food was great. The Tapas was fabulous. Wonderful flavors. Service was very attentive. Interesting to be able to share dishes. I especially liked the spinach dish. The overall mix of our selections was very good.

Great food, attentive service
We were in Old Greenwich for just one night on business. Saw the great reviews and the restaurant was very convenient. Everything from start to finish was great. We had tapas to start and our server recommended the seafood paella as our entree, which is a special price on Sundays. There were lots of shrimp, scallops, lobster and mussels, and sausage, too much for two people to eat. Wines by the bottle were 1/2 price too. Mojitos, were delicious and authentic. Prices are reasonable and this is a convenient stop, exit 5 off of I95.

good food, great service
This was our third time dining here.
We like the food and the fact that on Sundays, wine is half price.
We ordered a few tapas, a flat bread and mixed grill which was that nights special.
We liked everything except the duck and meatballs were a bit too sweet for our taste.
The sommelier was very friendly and gave us very interesting information.
We will definitely go back to try the paella!

The food was delicious, the service was attentive but not overbearing and the atmosphere was great -- didn't feel too crowded or too empty. (Although I imagine a few rowdy groups could drive the noise level up to being unpleasant.) The tapas menu was a lot of fun. 2 of us shared 5 dishes and it was more than enough food. Our waiter was extremely helpful with recommendations and his choices, particularly the duck confit quesadilla, were very good!
I found out they also have a menu for the kids with all the favorites (chicken nuggets, mac & cheese, pasta), so we will definitely be back for a family dinner.

Very laid back and happy
Every time we come here, we not only enjoy the food and the sangria, but we enjoy how very relaxed an experience it always is. We were very pleased with our dinner, and the wonderful flavors that the food naturally had, except for the fact that everything was under seasoned on this visit... Please use salt, pepper, and other spices and herbs to make the food sing-- if you don't put salt and pepper in the table, that tells the diner that we know how to season our food well, and you won't need anything else to turn up the volume on the taste-- all three people in our party felt the same way.

BISTRO LATINO REVIEW
Nice restaurant, pretty decor, great food and sangria, attentive staff. What else could you ask for? Would definately reccomend this restaurant!!

We recently dined at Bistro
We recently dined at Bistro Latino and had a wonderful time. We were celebrating a birthday, I had made reservations and indicated it was a birthday celebration. They sat us (party of 3 couples) at a round table. Very comfortable. The place is decorated beautifully. Romantic or intimate setting with low light (not too low) just right comfortable atmosphere. The food was fantastic! My husband and I ordered the Paella Palomino for two. Plenty of seafood and rice in this dish. We enjoyed every bit of it. The appetizers were delicious as well, we had Calamares Fritos & Salchichon. The entire evening was perfect, with very attentive waiters. We will definitely visit this restaurant again and tell everyone about how very good it was.

Wonderful lunch and brunch. Tried a variety of tapas and entrees and all were exceptional! This place is definitely worth a visit. I look forward to trying for dinner.

4 of us had dinner there this past Sunday. Absolutely fabulous from start to finish.
The white sangria is the best I've ever had.
All of the tapas we tried were fresh, tasty and delicious.
I highly recommend a visit!

Romantic Getaway Dinner
My fiance and I wanted to leave the city for a little getaway. We stayed at the Hyatt Regency nearby but were not in the mood for hotel food. I used my phone to search restaurants in the area and Bistro Latino was highly rated. It was close to the hotel but many reviewers claimed it was VERY busy and popular....nervous about dining without a reservation I clicked on an OpenTable link and had one in minutes! *happy dance* The food was moderately priced and DELICIOUS...though the menu was limited...as a biracial Black and Dominican couple we anticipated particular dishes and were slightly disappointed with the limited selection! The service was pretty good and we will definitely return.
