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.

Calle Ocho was surprisingly tasty. Although I was a bit nervous, since it wasn't super crowded as most NYC establishments are on a Saturday night, but the margaritas were great, the service was good and the food was tasty. We split an entree which was still plenty of food. It would've been wasteful not to split! I would go back!

Calle Ocho never disappoints me. The staff is beyond comforting and the food is plentiful and filling. I love the ambiance for a casual group setting. The Sangria is the best. There is a flavor for all palates . Their formula has been working for me for over the years. Keep up the fantastic work.

This place has only 3 bathroom for a LARGE restaurant. The bathrooms are just not enough for the capacity of the place and the big crowd they get every weekend. The line to use a bathroom took me 25 mins. It has a nice ambiance but the service in general is poor.
Not good value for money.

Excellent in every way! Located across 81st Street from the American Museum of Natural History (which is why I chose it to for post-museum dining on a very cold Sunday evening). Calle Ocho is a lovely restaurant which offers a variety of Latino dishes. I began with a perfect Mojito and a lobster/mango/scallion ceviche, proceeded to devour a very flavorful mariscada, and ended with a splurge-worthy tres leches (filled with pineapple and coconut). My fiancee proclaimed his grilled jumbo shrimp over coconut rice (a special that evening) delicious. I was also impressed with our waiter (unfortunately, I do not have his name) who made excellent recommendations and was extremely knowledgeable regarding the composition of each dish. Another good point: heat level of spices was perfectly adjusted to our tastes! Worth the slightly high prices from drink to dessert.

Good for a bite after the museum, but as pretty as the presentation is, the food underdelivered. Could use some more salt.
