The food was fantastic- we got wings ( not something I ever order- but these were flavored up and very crispy, with chimmichuri sauce, and there calamari- spicy and the best I’ve ever had.
I had spicy fish, my son the beef, and grilled shrimp. It was yum. We cleaned up the plates!! The chocolate cake & the Peruvian dessert was just perfect! Will go again and take friends. This place is a gem.

I was looking forward to this restaurant based on the great reviews but it was just ok. Prices were high, especially for drinks.

Absolutely loved the food, including the plaintain chips and salsa verde! I had not eaten that prior to this visit. I only wish we had this restaurant in Cincinnati! The servings sizes were filling, but not too much. I will definitely eat here again (probably more than once) on my next trip to St. Louis.

The service was slow, mostly because we were seated next to a table apparently more important than ours since our waitress spent her time there and the chef visited constantly from the kitchen without a nod to anyone else.
I ordered a mushroom dish which was a green bean dish with some mushrooms. Disappointing. Our waitress was nice enough but nonplussed. Just slow to bring the check.

The hostess was not very friendly. After we were seated, the complimentary plantain chips and dip were brought immediately, but it was another 10+ minutes before we saw our server and another 15 minutes after that until we received our drinks. Then another 10 minutes before our dinner came even though we place our orders when we ordered our drinks. My shrimp supposedly came with steak fries. There were about five regular fries used a garnish, so that was very misleading. However, the food was very good. Very slow service on a night when they were not all that busy.

Our server, Tyler, was personable, accurate, and attentive throughout. The bartender prepared the martini as requested, and the food - from Chicken Anticucho to the Saltado Angostinos and Scallop Special - was all a taste delight. My wife appreciated the simple but effective table decorations for her birthday, and the Torta Chocolate was the perfect finish for the chocoholic that she is. Our thanks to the chef and the entire staff.

My wife and I were in town for a challenging conference. We needed to get away from the vitriol and hateful actions and words some were experiencing in our time in St. Louis. Kira and the rest of the staff made it easy to be away for all of that for an hour. The food was excellent; it hit the spot.

We have dined at Mangos 4 different times now. This time the quality of the food was ok. It wasn’t great, but wasn’t bad just ok. For spending 85 bucks I guess I just expected more. The previous 3 visits were fantastic. The atmosphere was awesome. Our waitress was awesome and our drinks were pretty good. Overall not bad but nit great.

Food is good, and sufficiently different from other places around that I think it's still worth a visit. But the hostess and servers were aloof to the point of rudeness. The process of ordering and receiving drinks and food took ages. The bread pudding was a huge miss.

We very much loved the small dishes and the incredible menu! We were five persons and we enjoyed lots of tastes of this wonderfully unique cuisine. The wait staff was very patient with us and the selections beyond our expectations. Everything was fresh and yummy. They have a lovely Portuguese red wine that I can fully recommend, it was a basic European table wine, but it fit so perfectly. We were beyond thankful.

The grilled chicken breast with mango salsa was bland and uninspired. The beef tenderloin dish was cooked well (nice tender beef) but it also fell flat on the creativity and taste.

We had a very good experience for a special birthday. The food was beautifully presented and delicious.
The descriptions of the food were fully explained by our waitress. The mango sorbet was excellent and the birthday girl enjoyed her piece of chocolate cake, excellent, thick pieces of flan. It was well worth the trip downtown.
The only problem with the ambience was being seated next to the back door which was opened and closed rather often.
We knew this was an upscale restaurant, but we were still surprised not to see beans and rice as a side.
Overall, this was a winner for a special dinner.
