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.

It was good to see a restaurant seat a party when then all of the members weren’t there. They clearly stated it was a 2 hour time limit, which was fine with us. The only issue was that the food did take a very long time to come out - we had only about 35-40 minutes to eat when considering the time limit. Sangria was good, and I will definitely come back for sure!

We stayed in the hotel and had dinner here. Food was very good..Lots of it, so order accordingly. Place is a little dark and very loud. Staff was super nice!! Pauley at the bar was great. Really, really good Mojitos. He was very attentive! Would recommend if you also like Sangria as it is free here with brunch!

I love this place so much. Food and drinks were great as always. But as someone who also works in hospitality, I noticed that the servers were stretched too thin. They either need assistant servers to help them or to not have so many tables to cover.

Food and drinks were good as always. The service was pretty slow, but they had one waiter serving like 6 tables that each had 6-10 people. He definitely needed help.

Great ambience! We did not have to wait long for our meal. Good service. It was nice to see servers doing their job in a professional manner and not dilly-dally, or talking loudly over the food like some places do.

The food is excellent as usual, and the portions are big. Be prepared to bring home a doggie bag! However, my friends and I made the mistake of going on a Friday night, and even though we had a 5:30pm reservation, the noise level was already high. By the time our entrees arrived, we could barely have a conversation. People seemed to be having a good time shouting at each other, but if you want to catch up with your friends, Friday night is not the night to go.

WAY too expensive for the quality of food. That alone. I don't mind paying for an expensive breakfast, lunch, or dinner, but AT LEAST the quality of the food MUST BE exceptional or really good at best. Also- mistake made when I asked one of the busboys for ginger ale for my wife and he brought sparkling water. Margaritas I had were weak and tiny until the 5th one was brought randomly and without any notice from our server, in a tall glass. How do you mess up guacamole at a mexican restaurant? And the plaintain chips weren't great. Overall, very underwhelming. Won't be going back there. May sound like a harsh review, but I'm just being honest.

I'd highly recommend this place to any friends or family looking for a great weekend brunch spot on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. The food portions range from adequate to generous and the different sangria options provide an option for all. On top of this my party was sat down prior to our reservation time and we had a very attentive server even though the restaurant was full to capacity. The server also answered all of our questions about the food and drink items in a courteous manner.

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful meal before going over to see Jerry Seinfeld at the Beacon Theatre. We started at the bar, and I really enjoyed my Sangria Blanca. When we were seated, we shared the grilled octopus appetizer along with the complimentary cheese bread with a white spread. Delicious!! For dinner, I had the paella (the best I have had at a restaurant) and my husband had grilled steak with yucca fries. All of the food was served promptly and was hot (temperature wise). Our service was efficient but never rushed. Drink orders were filled promptly as were our water glasses. The restaurant is spacious, and the restrooms were spotless. We look forward to a return trip!
