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.

Beautiful place to eat some Cuban food.. Loved the idea of complimentary coctails while you wait for food and also during eating your meal.. Simply justified..
Definitely will visit again and I also suggest to try this place out..

Just okay. Our food came less than five minutes after we ordered. It was not hot and obviously not cooked to order. I expected more from a place like this. Not supposed to be a fast food joint. We won’t go back.

A bit overrated, barely any alcohol in the sangrias and chaotic atmosphere

The overall experience was great. The only concern I had was that they rush you from ordering your drinks all the way to dessert. I understand that it’s bottomless and that other people have reservations. They just could be a little discreet about moving along. I saw the hostess walk around a few times and it could’ve been that he was just attentive but I felt like I was being monitored on how fast I was eating.

I go here every year for Valentine's Day for the past 8 years. I got to go to the other Calle Ocho before it was moved to the hotel and I was never disappointed. Keep doing exactly what you doing. Bring back the flan and pollo peruano please. Thanks.

Mediocre, especially the food. All orders were close to tasteless and without the proper seasonings you might expect from Cuban food.

Great place, however we were disappointed with Sangria and cocktails as were the patrons next to us. Specifically, it was sweet red wine with fruit, that not Sangria, and cocktails had less than 1/3 giver if that. We relayed this to the Manager on call Wed., 7/14, and he took my cocktail, went to the bar, made the cocktail himself and brought it over to me. Yes, he's obviously a very good bar tender because I truly enjoyed it. Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is a Manager.

Great paella, and cocktails. Wife thought the steak sauce a little over powering, but paired with very good lobster empenada. Slightly slow on drink service, but very friendly and attentive staff.
