First and last time at this place. The music was too loud. Couldn't have a conversation. Great place for Spanish food and music.

We had to leave due to the noise. This place used to have a calm and nice atmosphere... but they brought a DJ and made it impossible to have a conversation. Also, part of the food was definitely not as good as it used to be.

Love the venue, the food is delicious, the ambiance is laid back with a splash of class. The manager was very accommodating to our groups needs even though we had a group member not feeling up to par. The only concern was our server was not attention everyone or friendly.

He came to my table asking what we wanted to eat. He hasn't gotten out drink orders so I asked if I could order my drink first. I ordered a water for the time being and he took my order down only and walked away from our table.

Most of our table went to the bar for their drinks after that.

Other than the service we enjoyed our time and we thank you for having us at Guarapos! :)

We went to Guarapo for a Friday night date and it did not disappoint. The DJ was AMAZING! His ability to mix Latin and Hip-hop music was the best part of the evening. The hookah was good and priced well. The food was okay. The drinks were okay. But, overall the lounge upstairs was great. The crowd was energetic. Everyone was there to have fun. No drama. Great night!

The woman who helped me out was more than helpful. She was so sweet and super nice. I was there for my boyfriends surprise party and were originally expecting 10 people but it turned into 20. They were very accommodating and it was not too pricey. Great place!

Guarapo has great food, I came back after tree months with my girlfriend to celebrate her birthday, first I notice the tables are too close to each other, there is barely any privacy it seem to be like was more a hookah place than anything else.
On the notes for my reservation I ask if there was anything Guarapo can do for my girlfriend birthday and nothing was done, I assume that maybe there was nothing special.
I was hopping for a nice romantic dinner, did not get one.

The service is poor. We paid $700for two tables and got charged $140 gratuity. There was no disclaimer on the website about the gratuity charge for getting a table. That and we only received two bottles of Absolute...never again.

Quite s bit loud, but the hookah was great and the server was fantastic as well. I'd love to come back here again sometime but would just come for an early evening hookah Sosh.

Brought a small group (7 people) from work for some drinks and dinner at Guarapos . During the hour-and-a-half that we stayed we were only able to get a few drinks and a couple of appetizers because the service wasn't good. The place was pretty empty and they lost our order twice. By the time our empanadas arrived everyone was very hungry and our faith in being able to get through the main course disappeared. Paid the bill and ended up going somewhere else for dinner.

I went here for my birthday as it had been over 2 years since I had gone for someone else's Birthday dinner. I forgot how great the food was and my husband who is a picky eater really enjoyed it. We will definitely be coming back to eat and dance it up after 10pm. Shout out to DJRuben for playing the hits and making my B-day so special.

Went on V-day. The restaurant was empty which was very concerning especially on v-day. The drinks were terrible, my girlfriend said it reminded her of mixing brunettes and crystal light back in her college dorm. They forgot my starter, even then it was boring and uninteresting. My steak was overcooked even though I mentioned twice I wanted it medium rare. The vegetables were clearly from a freezer bag (you know the pristine broccoli, carrots, cauliflower). The champagne was also very cheap. I couldn't' even get half way through the glass.

Please save your self the trouble and go somewhere else. Don't waste you money here when anything is much much better.
