Fantastic restaurant, great food and service! We went at 5:30 and the place was almost empty, but by 7pm the place was packed. Our waiter even remembered a surprise complimentary birthday dessert for my husband and that was the icing on the cake to a great evening!

Absolutely love this hidden gem! The complimentary plantains with chimichurri are a perfect start to the meal. Very authentic & extensive menu. I highly recommend the marinated skirt steak—it’s amazing! Do not pass this place up!

We thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered (skirt steak, squash stew, grilled octopus, green beans, and bread pudding. Everything was bursting with flavor.
Our server, Edwardo, was excellent - very patient and helpful. He stopped by our table to show us food he was serving to other tables, because he knew we were curious. You can feel the attention paid to every detail, including the presentation. Kudos to the chef and servers!
We can't wait to go back and try more dishes, and we'll take more people with us to share this gem!

Great service and such creative food ~ all three of us had different dishes ~ all good, but I'll admit it's the plantain chips and sauce that are my favorite. They have made significant improvements on the noise.

Let me start by saying this was my fourth trip to this restaurant. We were sat at a table right near the bar, so close that when people got up from the bar our stuff was knocked over. We ordered our appetizer and main course at the same time since the restaurant was busy. After waiting for 45 minutes, the waiter came back to the table and said, "What did you order for the appetizer?" Another 10 minutes went by and we finally got our appetizer. After waiting another 30 minutes our main course arrived and was cold. I'm assuming it was already made and sat out for a long time. We paid for our wine and appetizer and left. No manager came to apologize or any acknowledgment was made afterward. Good thing I still had leftovers to eat from the night before. While service was spotty on our last 3 trips, this was a real mess up. I think what bothers me the most is that the server knew he messed up but really did nothing to try to rectify the situation.

We went to celebrate our anniversary at Longitud315 and the unforgettable experience began from the moment we walked in the door. The hostess was very friendly and prepared for our arrival. We were greeted by our friendly and professional waiter with in seconds of sitting down to our table. He was very well versed in the menu offerings and helped us decide our choices for the evening.

The service from start to finish was 5 stars all the way!

Our food arrived in a timely manner between each course and was amazing. Every item was prepared to perfection and exploded with flavor in every bite. Chef Tony and his staff paid attention to every detail from service to presentation.

I would highly recommend Longitud315 to anyone in search of an unforgettable dinning experience. We will be back soon.

Every dish was prepared excellently. The empanadas each had its' own distinct flavor and texture, which was an explosion of flavor. The Churrascos was incredibly savory. A first class meal at a moderate price.

Great food. No other way to describe it. It was noisier there than during our previous visits, and the little 2 place table in the main traffic lane did make our visit less than perfect. It was our first Saturday there. Perhaps that explains the noise. Still looking forward to another visit there, just not on a Saturday.

I've dined at Longitud315 several times and I've always enjoyed the food. This time, we opted for small plates and sharing of the Churrascos. The meats on the Churrascos plate were overdone and consequently dry. We didn't see our waiter very frequently, but he did check up on us after the food was delivered. I decided not to complain as we were satisfied with all the other dishes....the arepas were fantastic, the assorted empanadas were very tasty, and I was very happy with the lamb chops, too. The drawback to Longitud315 is the small room and the level of noise. It was really loud in the room! Usually it's because of the lively crowd, but this time the vestibule entry door kept slamming shut...or getting stuck. Previously, there was a temporary vestibule in place, but that has been replaced with a more permanent structure. I don't think it's quite finished yet, so maybe when it's done the loud slams will be gone. I will return to the restaurant as the food is the star here, but I won't go here for a relaxed dinner conversation.

Thank you for your review and for joining us. Since we are such a small restaurant it can get a little noisy on the weekends. We are in the middle of remodeling and planning on getting more acoustical panels and a new door. We apologize for the inconvenience. We appreciate your business and hopefully next time it wont be as loud.

Excelente food and service! I went with my wife last Saturday, hostess was very attentive, server very helpful with our questions and his suggestions. Food had a great presentation and great flavor. Busboys and servers kept checking our table. Bartender Sunny, made delicious drinks and was checking tables. Chef Tony Castillo is doing an outstanding job. We can’t wait to go back.

The appetizers we tried, empanada assortment and drunken mushrooms were terrific. The ceviche and Berenja a la Braza were very tasty. Churrascos were ok. And the moqueca de Peixe, while tasty, was a bit on the salty side. The flat bread that came with the seafood soup was very good. Oh, the dip that comes with the plantains is absolutely delicious. Atmosphere pleasing, but the tables were a bit too close to each other. Definitely will go back. Besitos for dessert were very good.

As usual, the food was amazing. The service however was terrible. Our “waiter” kept disappearing for 25 minutes at a time. Later we learned that he was handling bartender duties as well. After 1.5 hours, we found ourselves pressed for time and had to rush through our meal, and ask another server for our check.

Juan was great! Steak my wife had was outstanding (wood fired), my empanadas were ok (dough too thick to taste ingredients, too bad they looked very good). Actually everything we had was outstanding except the empanadas. Soup was terrific, snack plantains with salsa OUTSTANDING! We will definitely be back.

The food was well prepared and full of flavor. Everything we had was delicious. I highly recommend the mussels, green beans and empanada assortment. Although you may be full at the end of your dinner do not pass on the Besitos de Dulce de Leche, trust me you won’t regret it. The service was also outstanding. Our waitress was knowledgeable and attentive.

Instead of bread they give each table a bowl of crispy plantains which were delicious. Three of us shared three appetizers. The shrimp and mushroom appetizers were excellent. The baby eggplant appetizer was pretty good too but wasn’t as appealing to look at.

Love this place. The flavors are amazing and the plantains with garlic sauce that are complimentary are delicious. I guess my only complaint is that it was so noisy that you couldn't even hear your friends from across the table. Very flavorful food and great service.
