This was my first time at
This was my first time at Macondo. I reserved a table for a breakfast brunch. The staff was very accommodating when the reservation needed to be changed last minute. The staff was attentive and provided excellent service. I ordered the steak which was cooked exactly the way I wanted it. The mimosas were also a a pleasant surprise. I will definitely be returning again.

Great extensive Latino menu
Great extensive Latino menu and so far everything we've had has been equally good. Staff has been very attentive and friendly, and we've been as a couple and with large groups. Pork belly may be best I've ever had.

Worth it just for the bottomless mimosas. Went on a Sunday at prime brunch time, and they didn't try to rush us or skimp on the bottomless part by not filling up our drinks -- instead, they were very attentive and always kept the glasses full. Worth every penny.

Macondo offers delicious Latin
Macondo offers delicious Latin food in a vibrant atmosphere. The wine was very good and they also have very inventive Latin-themed cocktails. Would definitely like to return to this unique restaurant/bar.

I've been to dinner at Macando several times now. Service is very good, as is the food (always consistent). Yuca fries and mojito are great, hangar steak excellent. Lively amosphere is a little loud but not distracting. Great to enjoy with friends.

We enjoyed the food and presentation. Guacamole was excellent!!! Sangria very good. We were almost happy when it got a little busier- our waitress was a little OCD and maybe "over-attentive" but I will say we missed the service at our next two dining spots. Very loud and difficult to have conversation at the table.

Great food, not expensive, good atmosphere, very friendly service and we were given a happy hour discount at the end of our meal for the next visit...Great marketing!!

Above average brunch food!
Typically food at endless brunch places is average. Macondo is the exception. Delicious food, great selection and beautiful presentation.

Good brunch, gets noisy after noon
We had brunch here, arriving just as they opened at 11. The decor is pretty, service very friendly, and the food tasty and unique (and rich - eggs benedict on an arepa instead of an english muffin!). By noon, the music had been pumped up and the larger, chattering groups had arrived. So it's all about what you're looking for - a nice place for a quiet early brunch, or a lively place a bit later in the day.

The fried calamari was outstanding, the grilled squids delicious, good ceviche and outstanding drinks.

CHEF MÁXIMO TEJADA
One of my favorite spots and go to restaurants.
The food is fresh, the presentation is phenomenal and the atmosphere is vibrant
Great place for groups because each dish has enough to share and at the end of the night everything is pretty affordable -I feel like we ordered one of everything on the menu and We did not break the bank…
Do not hesitate to try a Chef Maximo Tejada restaurant because you will not be disappointed!!!

Great and fun tapas
Very good food, fun ambience, good drinks and attentive service. I loved the empanadas and the chicken avocado arepa. The chicken croquetas were also very good. I would recommend this place for fun group dining.

Amazing Birthday Dinner!
I went to Macondo with some friends for my 21st birthday. They were super accommodating of our relatively large party - our table was ready and waiting for us as soon as we got there - and extremely friendly. The drinks are delicious and the food is great! My only complaint is that the portions are quite small, so I wish I had ordered a second dish.

Best Bottomless Mimosa
They usually have three flavors or fresh squeezed juices. the servers are super attentive. there's plenty of yummy food to soak it all up. i would not bring a vegan here. a bit loud, perhaps not the best place for date night unless you don't feel like talking.

Amazing brunch experience!
We decided to celebrate my friend's birthday at Macondo. You really can't say no to bottomless brunch! The mimosas were tasty and the food was amazing. The portions were pretty big as well. The service was great and the waiters made sure to refill our glasses. I would definitely recommend it to my friends!

Came here for a birthday brunch, enticed by their all-you-can-drink mimosa special for $13 for 2 hours. Difficult to find a reasonably priced AYCD brunch special that also takes reservations, and and accommodate large groups, so this was great. Service was fine on the food but a bit slow on the drinks, which is par for the course. They even brought out desserts with a candle for my friend's birthday. Overall a very positive experience.

Excellent Brunch Destination
I have been coming here for brunch for several years. The food and atmosphere are great. Perfect for one on one dining and groups. Make a reservation to get seated quickly because it is a very popular spot. Everyone who works there are extremely friendly. They are very attentive. The water glasses are always full, not to mention the unlimited memosas. This will always be my go to place for brunch.

Great Find - Great Dining
Macondo certainly was a pleasant surprise and a great find especially for post-movie dining – it neighbors the Sunshine Cinema and is conveniently across the street from the F train. We loved the ambience, décor and above all, the cuisine. Each dish was more sumptuous than the next and the Sangria was delicious. We sampled the regular menu fare as well as the specials, and we eyed the dishes and drinks that our ‘neighbors’ ordered which looked delectable. The most outstanding feature of our dining experience, however, was our waiter – Antonio was extremely familiar with the menu and had a way of describing the options that made each one enticing. He is charming, entertaining, and congenial – his service was the best.. We will return.
