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.

Delicious food, drinks and superior service. Staff could not have been nicer or more attentive.

Really good restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was really outstanding. Our only complaint was that even compared to the typical noisy New York restaurant this was outstandingly noisy. So it’s not good for quiet conversation. But we’ll be back.

Very attentive staff. The food was excellent! Drinks had wayyyy too much ice. Made a 6p reservation, and glad I did. Started to pick up around 7:30. With kids in tow, it was the perfect time. All in all, we'd come back!

Wonderful Latin American food (Peruvian, Spanish, Mexican, etc.), excellent, attentive service, nice wine list, lovely ambiance. Good value. We had a late after-theatre dinner. First time dining there, we’ll definitely be back. A great uptown spot.

The food and service were great. Our table was ready right on time. We did not feel rushed to leave.
One member of our party said the Paiella was the best he ever had.

Fabulous. Our waiter was great and the food amazing. The guacamole was perfect. Camerones with avocado mash in an onion was unique and so tasty. And the seafood paella was great. I'd definitely try the churros with the bitter sweet chocolate sauce.

The Sunday brunch is well worth the $35. One entree and unlimited but reasonable amounts of sangria. The skirt steak didn’t quite have the flavor I was looking for but I would definitely go back and try something else on the menu.

I've been a fan of Calle Ocho for years, but this was my first time at the new location and it did not disappoint. We ordered several items from the appetizer and everything was good. The sangrias were on point and delicious. Hope to go back soon for the Happy Hour.

We loved our meal at Calle Ocho, and are grateful they were able to make some food especially for one in our party who cannot eat salt. Thank you!

Delicious food - - exquisite latin fusion recipes. Great chef, friendly and accommodating staff. Cocktails are good. It is a fun experience, but the music is a bit loud and you might feel pressure to free up your table watching people coming in with the hopes of getting a table. Reservations highly recommended!
