Latin American
More festive than a piñata stuffed with a mariachi band and twice as stylish, Calle Ocho’s lively crowd is amped up on Mojitos, Caipirinhas, Sangria and Spanish wine or beer and shows no sign of slowing down. Those not willing or able to holler over the salsa music retire to the two small lounge areas to commiserate. The bar area is a prelude to their Nuevo Latino cuisine in the dining room that will knock your taste buds for a loop. If you’re in need of a quick jump-start, Calle Ocho will get your motor running.

I don't recommend the fried calamari Dominican style- tasteless and seemed reheaded doughy; the lobster salad was ok.

Really super extremely loud. Very hard to have a conversation here. Sangrias were ok, until I got up, then WHAM, they hit me. Wait staff were pretty attentive and it was nice and different to get seated without a complete party. Turn the music down and I’ll be back to try the sangrias we missed!!

They should have a non-Sangria (cheaper) option for brunch. As someone who doesn't drink alcohol, I did not get $35 worth of value (which is actually $44.40 per person after tax and tip). Service was also not very good, probably because they are very crowded (I went for Saturday brunch), in which case they need more staff working. Food was good, but again, not worth the cost by itself.

Very nice decor! Makes you feel like you’re in Cuba. I had the salmon and it was like an explosion of flavors. Sangria selection is nice and flavorful too. For $35 you get a nice sized entre and unlimited sangria.

Seafood was amazing. Drinks were very good. Bread was delicious. My steak was over cooked, and skirt steak needed more flavor.

I have always thought Calle Ocho was a great restaurant. I was a little disappointed this time. I had the same dish I always have, the beef, shrimp and chicken taco appetizer and it just wasn't as good as I remembered. Don't know why, but maybe it's time to try something else on the menu. I still will go back as often as I can, but the charm is just not there. Sorry guys, I know you try.

Disappointed. Food was good, but pricey. Service was fine. Be careful of what they say. Feels like a car salesman. Lots of offers out there, so check, Groupon, yelp. But watch out because they will try not to honor it.

Restaurant is located in hotel. Loud and over crowded. Waiter did not communicate well. He did not introduce himself. Wasn’t sure if he was runner, bus boy or server. Wait for ladies room was at least 15 minutes. Food was very good. Sangria was below average. Not worth the $35 price fix.

I have never had such wonderful service. Despite being incredibly slammed, our waiter Gio was at our table checking on us every couple of minutes. We were NEVER without a full glass of sangria. This is exactly how you want to do boozy brunch.

Pleasantly surprised because we’d been to Calle Ocho in its previous location on Columbus Ave and weren’t too impressed. Here, the atmosphere is warm and quiet; the drinks delicious, the service caring and efficient. The calamari was superb and all theee of the main dishes we ordered were very, very good - fresh, tasty and worth re-ordering. We declined dessert because we were full but the experience was excellent. We’ll definitely go back!

Food is great as always and a very good price. Sangria is always tasty and strong. Need a bathroom attendant. One was out of order and two single stall bathrooms for the entire place was not okay. The line took 15 mins minimum. Other than that a great time as always.

have been coming here for years and have always enjoyed the imaginative cuisine, the beautiful presentations, the music and the cocktails. and when something has gone wrong, this place really cares about making it right in contrast to most spots. and the manager, Luis Piedra, is a gem and Calle Ocho is lucky to have him at the helm.

My husband and I visited Calle Ocho for the first time as a birthday dinner treat. The neighborhood was nice, the hotel lobby was grand and the restaurant décor & music were very nice. The ribs were great and the sea bass was excellent. My only corrective comment would be my waiter. We were seated quite a while before we saw him and then didn't even know he was our waiter. We're used to a more attentive greeting .

Group of 10 for my birthday. Waited at the bar while my party arrived, which was really nice. Great drinks. Nice vibe, even just for after-work cocktails. Hostess seated us before the full party had arrived which was great (and rare nowadays). Busy Saturday night so had to wait a bit sometimes to get server’s attention (2 other big parties in our section, so totally understand). Otherwise, drinks, food, EVERYTHING was great! Had an amazing time!!

For my main course, I had the steak with yuca frita, wasn’t a fan of the yuca frita. The steak and salad was absolutely delicious.

If you are into sangria. I would recommend the tropical sangria.
