About

Are you in the mood for Mexican food tonight? How about some Argentinean too? And maybe a little Chilean while we’re at it? Well, now you can get it all at one restaurant – Oficina Latina, a popular Latin American restaurant in New York City's Nolita.

Oficina Latina calls itself a pan-American bistro, and features cuisines from a number of South and Central American countries, including Mexico, Argentina, Ecuador, Chile, Costa Rica and Panama. Best of all, the restaurant organizes its menu by country, so you can pick your dish by destination.

Want a taste of Peru? Try the Ceviche de Calamari y Vieras. Craving Venezuelan? Order the Arepas Mixtas. Cuban food on the brain? Get the Cubano, of course! Oficina Latina has all of these cuisines – and more – and prepares them all well.

The restaurant offers a daily fresh cocktail selection as well, featuring an interesting wine list from the major Latin American regions, and a few beers from Central and South America.

Do not go for their food. Great margaritas but the dinner menu was limited, portions were small, prices were expensive and to boot not very good.

It was a very disappointing experience compared to when I went 6 months ago.

Better bar scene.

Wonderful staff, very accommodating, and made a Birthday very fun. Great vibe, not too crowded, and the party of 11 had an excellent time.

A great restaurant, good food, wonderful staff. Start with happy hour at the bar and move to a table outside for dinner. I was there on a Friday night and there was no rushing us thru our meal. I've gotta go back here soon.

Got there, told the front man we have reservation for two. He didn't acknowledge what I said and was about to put us at the bar and tell us to wait. Told him again we have reservations. Then he checks twice, tells us we have a table. Sit down, no water or ask us anything. I had to get up, walk over to the bar and ask the bartender to help serve us. Took another 20 mins for the waiter to address if we want anything. Again I had to walk over to the bar, ask the bartender for order ready. Got our drinks. Didn't give us napkins for our Appetizers, was cold. Just waited for food. Asked for sauce on the side & didn't get it. Overall horrible service, was expecting to have good service since a good friend recommended it. Would I go again? Probably not. Only for drinks. The bar was faster than the sinning sitting area. Also, people smoking right where we all were eating. And was very rude they should have at least smoked somewhere else around the corner. Other customer beside us told them to smoke somewhere else and I told the lady sitting in front of me to smoke it elsewhere politely.

So so so bad.... guac wasn't even mashed, just large chunks of unseasoned avocado and SO small, very spicy shrimp Arejas but the menu did not indicate spice, "sweet" plantains were the basic fried ones with no flavor. Prices are higher the OpenTable menu.

Cinco de Mayo- enough said! Place was rock'n and we were lucky to snag a table in the front entrance so we could see the city pass us by. Service was quick on this very busy night. Food was great - anything you order will be fine and then wash it down with a spicy margarita. You will not be disappointed.

The motorcycle adorned interior really plucks a nerve. Sitting out on the street on a warm spring day was pretty perfect. Our server was the perfect level of involved. The food was wonderful, highly recommend the beef steak over all the things it's over.

Only criticality is a lot of their digestifs were not available though looking so interesting, and the speakers to our table seemed to make talking take a little more effort--could have been the street noise too though, we were on the sidewalk.

The menu has a lot of great small plates that are flavorful and great for sharing to get through a few different dishes. The drinks were pretty good - maybe a little on the sweet side but still strong and tasty. It's loud, casual, and delicious.
