We have been coming to El Criollo for many years and the foo and service is always great. My wife, kids and I very much like coming over.
Great homemade Cuban specialties cooked with love and care.
El Criollo had fantastic Cuban food! The shrimp in garlic was amazing as was the Ropa Vieja.
Good selection of food. Very tasty.
Seems everytime i come here there is a different server. This time it was a guy. Very handsome and made a very good sangria for me. Carlitos, who works in the kitchen, was very friendly and sat down and talked with us a bit.
This place was good, but there wasn't anything that we would go back for. The best thing we had was the yuca in garlic.
Service was fantastic. The Ox tail was very tasty.
To start off, the restaurant was too hot. The air conditioning was either broken or set too high. There were no diners in the restaurant when we arrived and only one server. We ordered drinks and they had little to no ice. The appetitizers were good. The entrees were hit or miss. My fish looked and tasted like it was from Costco. The pork dishes were dry. Sides were good. To top it off, the server added 18% to the bill for our party of 7. It was not an 18% tip meal. Overall: Average at best. Probably will not return.
I enjoyed a delicious lunch that compared favorably to the many great meals I had in Cuba last year.
This was the first time eating at El Criollo and I would highly recommend this to everyone. The menu is extensive with traditional Cuban flavors featured. Our server recommend a few of her favorites and we were very impressed. She also made one tasty mojito!
