Very friendly service, they went above and beyond to accommodate us as one of us is in a wheelchair. Staff is very friendly, smiling all the time. Restaurant interior design gives you a feeling of being away in another country, food is great! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anybody who wants to taste some different flavors.
We had a wonderful Sunday brunch! Great service and food! It was perfect for our large group!! Thank you!
We chose Favela because it was very close to the Skirball Theater (NYU) where we had tickets. Our friends were late but the staff was accommodating in serving them on time to make the performance.
My soup was good with just enough spice to make it interesting and the pulled pork sandwich was filled with fine flavors and ample enough for a light supper. My wife liked her salmon that was perfectly cooked and well seasoned.
We would definitely return there next time we are in the neighborhood.
Went for a Sunday brunch with a group of 5. Service was A1 and the menu prices were not overpriced. We are going back again next week!
We were here as a large group for my boyfriend's birthday and the food was superb. The staff were also courteous and accommodating. I highly recommend the restaurant.
Food was excellent. Fresh, hot, exactly right. Actually, best seafood paella I've had. Worth a trip back just for that. We shared ceviche.....fresh and perfect. Service was over the top, excellent wait staff, and the drinks were delicious. A new favorite!
It was my birthday dinner and literally called 4 hours before the dinner to reserve for 11 people. They totally saved my last minute butt!
The outside looks cute and it's cozy inside-the space is small. Their drinks are strong. I had gotten the Favela Cubana mojito but it was too strong for me(didn't taste good) so I got the passion fruit mojito instead. The GUAC IS AMAZING! We got 3 rounds because it was so good. Overall their food is really yummy. My favs are the gaucho steak, salamao, and the pan seared shrimp dish(forgot the name). They also have this housemade hot sauce that is ACTUALLY spicy! Our waitress was super energetic and accommodating for such a large party like mine. So I definitely recommend!
Just a nice place to have a meal. Been there for diner for two, dinner with friends and a large birthday party. Always great service and attentive staff. Food is always good and the portions are generous. Will certainly return again...and again.
Food, service and ambiance were great. Noise level was ridiculous - could not hear the person next to me.
This is my recent find on a quiet street behind. NYU. The mojitos are to die for! Their guacamole is some of the best I ever had as are the mussels! My friends swear by their chicken soup and roast chicken. Cheese bread is not chewy enough and mixed seafood fry is a bit flavorless but doesn't matter as most other dishes are so delicious. Service is friendly and warm.
