The outdoor patio in the back is great. The service was excellent and the food and drinks were delicious.
Me and a friend who drove in from New Jersey had brunch this past weekend. The food was delicious. The complimentary sangria was the icing on the cake. Would definitely go back.
I have been a fan of Calle Ocho since it was on Columbus Avenue at 81st street. So excited it has moved uptown! I have been to this location several times - the food is delicious and the staff are outstanding. I must highlight Lilly who has been my waitress on my last couple of visits - she is amazing! My menu favorites are the arepas, camarones and calamari appetizers. For entrees the ropa vieja and salmon are can’t miss.
Food and service were great. We especially appreciated all their covid protocols.
Great food, even better service and ambience. Drinks made as requested. Followed social distancing guidelines from the getgo. Just all around great place in all aspects.
It was a great evening, from the moment we got sat, till the moment we left .... our server was great on point ... can’t think of anything in specific .. but in overall it was GREAT!
Even in their new location, Calle Ocho remains the best brunch value in NYC.
Great spot on the UWS. Was surprised at the prices of the menu but it was pretty good value. Would highly recommend both the Punta Cana sangria and the salmon/mashed potatoes entree. Try to request a seat on the back patio if available - great ambiance and much quieter than the street-side tables.
High end Mexican food. Not the traditional food like tacos and burritos. All excellently prepared and delicious. Add on top the menu of Sangrias you have a winning combination! Not to mention the garden seating in the back...
Everything was great. The outdoor area in the back is beautiful! The food was AMAZING, and to top it off complimentary sangria. Staff was friendly , proper safety precautions for Covid were followed, I felt very safe. I have no complaints. My experience was perfect!
The service never disappoints. The food, ambiance and drinks are great! Our server, Lily was exceptional. Would definitely recommend.
The sever was great! Great value for the food!
Everything was great except there were some people on line to the bathroom and leaving the restaurant without masks.
Had a great time, the food was delicious, and I enjoyed all of the sangrias.
As always, very good experience, even sitting on the street! A friend who had not been to this new location was also pleased. Food is good, and there are ample portions, and drinks and service are excellent.
Everything was great. The only thing I would change is adding more food options.
I always enjoy Calle Ocho. The new location is nice too. Good to see them uptown.
Awesome service and food had a great time would go again
Great food, great service and a great backyard for outdoor seating
I have been going to Calle Ocho since it first opened on Columbus Ave. I have never been disappointed in their decor, food and service. This third and new location is wonderful....a huge garden for distance eating.
Fantastic food, great place and an amazing environment!
Food and drinks was delicious
Waiter rushed us to order and gave us the wrong drinks multiple times.
GREAT PLACE, GREAT FOOD, GREAT DRINKS AND AN EVEN BETTER SERVICE.
The back yard garden was a delightful surprise. Nicely decorated with greens to camouflage the buildings. A nice change from street seating in this time of Covid. Food has always been authentic and fresh. Add some live music and it would be even more special!
Beautiful garden dining! Wonderful service. Highly recommend!
Never disappointed in the food!
The food is delicious!
Food and drinks were delicious! For appetizer we had the camarones, an that Puerto Rican rum glaze on the shrimp was amazing. For entrees we had Pollo a la Brasa , Costillas, and Cubano Classico with the chicken option. These are very big plates you could definitely share entrees with someone else and still be full, But over all the food was just delicious!
Lots of outdoor space with options of sitting in their front patio or back garden. Tuesday offers a sangria special, which includes a 3-course meal and unlimited sangria. 10 different sangrias to choose from. Staff was super friendly and made me feel welcomed. Food was extremely tasty and can't wait to go back again.
Food was fantastic, the different sangrias were epic. They packed a punch but were very delicious as well. Can’t wait to come back.
Love the atmosphere of the new uptown location. The garden is the perfect spot to dine with social distancing. The food and drinks are delicious. Excellent service. Looking forward to a return visit.
Super friendly service staff, good value, and delicious food
This was our first time here! We had heard about this place through a tiktok so I decided to bring my friends and boyfriend here. We had made a reservation at 2:45pm on a Saturday. It was extremely busy and we did have to wait a few extra minutes to be sat, even with our reservation. It wasn’t a big deal because we were not in a rush, but just a heads up. The server was slammed and you could definitely tell by his energy. They made sure we had plenty of water while we waited. Once the orders where in everything went much smoother. The food was amazing! The drinks were delicious! Everything was very affordable and we loved sitting in the back courtyard/garden. We will be back again! Hopefully it’s not as busy, but what can you? It wouldn’t be busy if it was a bad place to go. Thank you!
Love Calle Ocho! Always a good time!!
amazing place food always great.
Great time celebrating 2 birthdays and an anniversary! And our sever was amazing! And food, reason #1 I keep coming back!
Food was delicious! Esthetically the restaurant and outdoor patio area was beautiful.
I'm still savoring this place days later -- it is a magical escape! Make sure to sit in the garden -- you will be transported out of the city and out of the pandemic. The prices are a little steep for the neighborhood but the quantities are huge -- easily 2-3 servings per dish. The service was prompt and jovial. Excellent cocktail selection. Overall, a treasure. Easily one of my favorite dining experiences in 6+ years in Manhattan.
Amazing sangria and food!
Food was amazing. Sangria even better!
