I went here with some coworkers
I went here with some coworkers for lunch. They had a buffet lunch. Not a big selection - just about 5 dishes and some sides and salad. But everything was really good. No desserts, but for the price we paid, we were very happy with what we got. I would definitely go back here again.

Great Food, Service Not so Much
I love the food at Ladino but this is my second visit where the service was bordering on being rude. The Passover Menu is in place so the typical lunch menu was not available. It was a lunch for two so we split an appetizer and entree'. The reaction to splitting the serving(s) was as if I was suspect to even being allowed to eat there.
Glad we did split - the serving was huge. Service throughout the meal was usually prompted by us asking for the waiter. When he came to the table he approached us like "now what"? I apologized to my first time guest for recommending the restaurant and will think twice before returning.

One of the best Kosher restaurants I've ever been to. I'm not kosher but my husband is, so I've been to many kosher & non-kosher restaurants. This is one of the only kosher restaurants that just seems like a really nice, regular restaurant. The service was impeccable, and the food was very good even though it was during Passover. The ambiance of the place is very nice, though I took one star off for that because it was sooooo crowded that people waiting were packed in not only by the door but down the aisles too. Maybe that's because it was one of the only kosher restaurants open for Passover; I'll give it another chance because of that, but if that is normal for them we'll probably go there less because that takes away from the experience.

Passover Brunch? Nice job.
Brunch during Passover is a tough ticket. Not many choices out there. The food was excellent, fresh and flavorful. Service eas attentive and not at all rushed. I look forward to returning for a regular lunch or dinner

Only a kosher place would
Only a kosher place would consider guacamole a Spanish tapas, but besides that, the ceviche was great, albeit more of a Peruvian starter than a traditional Spanish Tapas, the Sangria was authentic and delicious. Didn't get to try the Patatas Bravas, the ultimate of Tapas dishes because it was listed as a side as opposed to a Tapas and we were too full to order from the sides after we had such a plentiful array of fish and meat Tapas dishes.

A really great restaurant even if you're not Kosher. Excellent service!

Excellent food, intrusive music.
Kosher tapas? Who-da thunk it? Excellent meal overall!
We started with the quinoa salad-exceptional. The weakest dish was the tortilla de patatas-a wedge of a bland quiche-like preparation. The chicken wings (alas de pollo) were no better or worse than fried wings with hot sauce that I've had elsewhere. (No bleu cheese with it, of course!) It was a generous serving, which was good. The sauteéd mushrooms (champiñones salteados) were EXCELLENT, and short ribs (costilla de res con chipotle) were even better than that. Don't miss them. And that was enough for three enthusiastic, hungry diners.
The only downside was the live music. It was so loud that it was intrusive, spoiling dinner conversation.

We ordered at 7:30pm on a Sunday night and they had run out of both Chilean Sea bass dishes. They came over to tell me after discovering each one which was about 15 minutes or more after we ordered. So I ordered the Halibut which was good and food still came on time. Otherwise, excellent food, nice servers, great Chardonnay and decent singing of Happy Birthday to our teenager with amazing chocolate cake! I will be going back for next celebration or even before!

Great value for kosher lunch
So nice to have something different as far as kosher options. This restaurant only serves an all you can eat buffet at lunchtime for $15 pp. There was beef stew (my fav), tilapia filets, grilled chicken with cilantro, breaded chicken, mini burger patties (salty for me), platter of grilled veggies (Japanese eggplant, green and yellow squash, asparagus, and peppers) and white rice to spoon that delicious stew sauce over and of course a Latin must...sweet plantains. There was also green salad and a platter of fresh fruit (pineapple, apples, Asian pears, grapes, honeydew, canteloupe, and watermelon. I enjoyed it!

Pricey but worth it
We recently went to Ladino for a n early dinner. Food was great. We ordered several tapas and a main course for two--to be shared by all. Food arrived fairly quickly. The service was good.

I went with trepidation
Lunch was a buffet only. While the choices were limited, everything was so fresh and delicious. I had a piece of the best, freshest fish I have had out in a very long time. I highly recommend this hidden Graeme for a well priced, delicious meal. I can't wait to try it for dinner.

very good food and liquor
Steaks are very good. They appear to be prime, i.e. soft and cooked as asked. Sides of yuca - mashed & fried, are ok, nothing spectacular. Salads are very good and could be a complete dinner if accompanied with a tapas or soup. Liquor is very good - kosher mojitos, margaritas, beer. The room is not good for conversation- very noisy (sheva brachas, birthdays, graduation parties,...). Will definitely return for the steaks!

Food was very good. Service
Food was very good. Service was very professional... when they stopped by the table; staff seemed to get overwhelmed at peak time but that may be because it was a national holiday weekend. But they let us linger and talk long after we finished meal. Kudos.
I want to go back and try more things on the menu.

Excellent all-you-eat buffet.
My wife and I had heard about this kosher buffet in midtown. I turned out to be an excellent lunch for under $15. We also treated ourselves to very generous moderately priced drinks . We also appreciated the very friendly service there.

Excellent kosher fare, tapas style
We had an excellent meal at Ladino Grill. The halibut was particularly good, as were the gorditas and the sauteed wild mushrooms. The steak fajita was the table winner (it has a different name, but it was grilled steak and vegetables, with tortillas).
Our table was in the corner, and got a bit forgotten by the staff. It took forever to order, and forever to get the check. But the staff was professional and pleasant-- just a bit overwhelmed with many tables at the same time. it was packed on a Wednesday night, so make sure to make a reservation. Whether you keep kosher or not, the food is worth eating. Although I don't keep kosher myself, I was entertaining family from Israel, and they were thrilled with their meal.

The food was great and the service was good but a little pricey considering the portion sizes.

A pleasant surprise. Typical NYC restaurant with table close together but food was great and lots of activity. I'll definitely go back.

Was looking for a place to eat near Columbus Circle during the nine days and this was the perfect choice. The all you can eat buffet had three different fish dishes - nothing fancy, but perfectly cooked and piping hot - the side dished were also basic food - mashed potatoes, rice, squash - also plainly cooked but excellent and terrific french fries - which is very hard to do on a buffet. For $15 you couldn't beat it. I will definitely have to try a dinner there some day.

Great option for Kosher diners.
Great option for Kosher diners. Food was excellent, and apparently there are new chefs on board so the menu will be changing. It was extremely crowded and noisy and service was very slow and inattentive. Food, however, was excellent and worth it.

This was my second visit to this restaurant. First time going was fall of 2012 which was pretty good. Being from NJ and trying nearly every Latin Kosher restaurant in New York. I can say it lived up to all of my expectations. The food was excellent the service was excellent our waiter Donna was attentive, knowledgeable and fun. She went out of her way to do some special things for us and truly made the dinner extra special. The appetizers were pretty excellent for being kosher tapas. The chips and salsa were fantastic. My guest loved his steak. My skirt steak tasted great. it’s awesome. Thank you Donna.

Fresh ingredients, well prepared imaginative food. Always enjoy eating here! Ordering the small dishes allows you to sample many more delicious foods.

Tapas were great, even with the pared down menu! Pitchers of Sangria a must!

go for the steak
We ordered a few appetizers (OK - nothing great) to share followed by different steaks and 1 chicken dish. The chicken was mediocre and 1 of the steak meals was half fat. The other steaks, though, were fantastic. I would go back, but would not order a dessert which was crazy expensive and nothing special.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love the ambiance of this place - a beautiful setting for a Kosher romantic dinner. The service was always ready to take our orders, serve us, and refill our water. We enjoyed the steak and mock crab salad. I definitely would return to try more dishes. However, the portions were on the smaller side and quite pricey.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I didn't particularly notice much tapas at Tapas but the food was very good, the waitresses were beautiful and nice and the atmosphere was pleasant. My friends thought likewise, one from Portugal and the other from Argentina.

Good kosher food, bravo!
Excellent themed kosher spot on UWS. Highly recommend. Would return. Service a teensy slow if crowded.

Ladino Tapas Bar & Grill is a very unique and delicious addition to the kosher restaurants in Manhattan. The food and service was outstanding. The wait staff was very knowledgeable about the food and helpful to first time diners. There is a nice wine list and even though we did not order cocktails, the list looked very interesting. We were very impressed with everything about the restaurant and will definitely be back.
