The ambience, food, cocktails and service were all good. We would definitely go back here again. No live music for our early dinner but the little stage set-up promises a fun night of tunes if you're there at the right time.

I understand that when its Friday night in Wilaiiamsburg, things tend to get a little hectic. However that is no excuse for a managements lack of concern about a customers dining experience. I made a 9pm reservation for 9 people. There was no one to greet us at the door and our table wasn't ready until 9:30. We ordered 3 types of empanadas, 2 with meat and one veggie. There were three vegetarians in the group. The server who brought out the empanadas misidentified the empanadas even after we explained that there were vegetarians in the group. It took close to an hour from the time we got our appetizers to the time we got our entrees. A vegetarian ordered a veggie sandwich, and after eating most of it she discovered a piece of pork in her sandwich. My friend ordered the ropa vieja and it was mostly sauce and veggies. The appetizers and drinks were good. I'm sure most of the food would have been good had it been served hot or hadn't have been too salty. If you want a scene then its the perfect place go. If not go elsewhere especially if there are vegetarians and vegans in the group. Which is a she because this restaurant was chosen for its veggie friendly fare.

Live music and large groups makes for a VERY noisy environment! I would have liked a little notice about the echoing sound problem in this space. Cute but not sound proof AT ALL!
Also, the chairs are REALLY uncomfortable -- wooden benches and folding chairs -- definitely doesn't encourage you to stay for a long time! I might go back just for the food and sit at the bar. That might work.

My husband and I came here three other times when we lived in Brooklyn and when we first found this place we loved it the service has always been a little slow but they were always busy. We had the black bean hummus, ropa, pollo entrée, and empanadas (chicken and beef) all three were fantastic.

After we moved to Manhattan we decided to take our friends out around where they live and choose this place again possibly 5 months later. Our experience was completely different. Our server took no exaggeration 15 minutes to come and even ask us for our order. My husband and I ordered the same thing again. The hummus came out watery and tasteless. The empanadas were good, but when the entrees finally came out they didn't even bring mine so we waited another 15 minutes to have mine prepared. Simple mistakes that could happen but, overall the service was not there the quality was not there anymore so we will not be enticed to come back again.
