Was good , I liked a lot
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.
This is I think my Fave brunch Spot in the city. The food is amazing and the sangria is to die for!
Eclectic, energetic atmosphere with great food and service
We were disappointed. The food wasn’t great for the prices...
Service was great, food was delicious, staff was super accommodating, location great, great dining experience.
Was there last Sat. for Brunch. The drinks were ok. My meal of shrimp & grits was tasty but on the soupy side. My friends Skirt steak with rice was described as the rice being good but the steak was over done and didn't taste right. And No, I doubt that I will be returning to the restaurant.
We came here to celebrate a birthday. The food was not good. The sangria was not good either neither were the desserts. I had to ask twice for the candle on the dessert to sing a happy birthday but they kept forgetting. Overall, the place oversells itself when it isn’t that good.
What a wonderful surprise. We had not been to Calle Ocho for many years and had never been to the "new" location. We chose it for New Year's Eve because it had open dining and was near where we had gone for a concert. We come form Hudson County where we have many 'latino" restaurants which is why we haven't been to Calle Ocho in a while. But the Food is fabulous--having expanded from traditional Cuban to include many Central and South American items. The portions were more than generous. And, on a hard evening like New Year's Eve the service was impeccable. I would definitely go back. One of my favorites was the Bizcocho dessert-- I believe Peruvian, unusual (to us) but Delicioso! Our appetizers of calamari, arepas con ropa vieja and pulpo were fabulous too. And the lechon!!!! Just a great meal in a wonderful place.
