Service was neglectful, food was meh and Mothers Day brunch menu was very limited. Drinks do not disappoint but will not be one of my goto special occasion places.

My wife had huevos rancheros, also top-notch, with very nice fruit dish. My son had steak and eggs, with a side of pancakes which he enjoyed. I tasted the pancakes and they were among the best I have tasted - light, fluffy. The presentation was great and the service was on-target.

Checked in with host and let this person know that we had a reservation. Was walked over to a section with two sets of booths. There was one booth that was cleaned and had place settings ready to go, and instead we were told to wait for someone to bus the booth next to it and that was where we would be seated. We were unsure why this happened because there were people sitting behind this un-bussed booth therefore they weren’t spacing us out for Covid precautions. We later found out the server was the same for both booths therefore it wasn’t because were in a different section. We waited several minutes for our server to arrive, and when she arrived she was very friendly. We gave her our order all at once: two coffees, guacamole appetizer, and two entrees: Cuban sandwich and steak and eggs (cooked medium rare). Coffee was delicious, and it would have been helpful to have stirrers or a spoon to mix in the cream and sugar that was provided to us. Our appetizer and entrees arrived at the same time. When I cut into the majority of the strips of steak from my steak and eggs, I had let our server know it was cooked well done and requested if I could get a recook. She was very apologetic and stated she would put the order in. It was at least another 15 minutes for our server to let us know that my food was still on its way and that a manager would bring it to our table. The manager arrives and apologizes for the mistake. The steak was cooked medium, and by that time, I had accepted that I would be fine with that temp and just keep this entree. The onions and green sauce drizzle was delicious. The guacamole had a good flavor and was accompanied by a variety of three different types of chips, a nice feature. The Cuban with adobo fries was also nice. To their credit, the staff tried to turn around our experience at the end, but I am hesitant to return soon if there aren’t overall changes.

I had bloody Mary with bacon & shrimp stick, he had rum cocktail. We split a cheese fundito with assorted chips. Then I had corn cake, bacon with 2 eggs (they came out hard- not over easy).We really enjoyed dining alfresco.

Drinks were a little weak. Food in general was fine ; not very flavorful. All Kind of one note, but the shrimp ceviche was the low point—light on shrimp and very heavy on fillers, like hearts of palm and what tasted like pickled veggies instead of spicy citrus flavors. Chicken Rio tacos were tasty but the black beans in the side were slightly under cooked.

I’ve dined with coworkers, friends, and family - one common theme is fairly poor/disinterested and at times rude staff and waiters/waitresses. Tonight we went in for an early dinner with our boys and immediately were met by staff that seemed to not have any idea what was going on. They were all looking at each other like they didn’t know how to look up a reservation, or where they would put us (there was barely anyone there). We were sat in the middle of the room at a table when there were empty booths everywhere in the restaurant. When we asked to sit in a booth the hostess just stared at us, mumbled something and walked away. We ordered drinks and it took about 15 minutes to get anything other than water. Our drinks, and our kids drinks didn’t come at all and we had to ask for them. Our guacamole and chips came out and the guacamole had no flavor to it (the tables also do not have salt or pepper) and our waitress never came by to check on us. We ended up using limes from our drinks. Our dinners arrived (my wife’s, and my dinners were not hot) and the chicken and cheese quesadilla our one son ordered came with no chicken, so we sent it back. 15 minutes later our waitress came by and we told her - she said oh ok. Another 15 minutes went by and it came back out, and again with no chicken. I was able to flag down one of the managers who apologized and went over to our son and was very nice he said he would go back and make it himself (he didn’t because I saw him a few minutes later). It took another 15 minutes for it to finally come. Our son was happy, but by this point the rest of us had finished our food. Thankfully there were no meltdowns, because it could have turned into a bad situation. They took the two $8 kids meals off of our check, but our waitress was terrible and the hostess staff were pretty rude and didn’t seem like they had a clue what they were doing.

Waiter told us they’d only had an hour of sleep upon first meeting which was a tad odd, but they were good. No acknowledgement of our anniversary despite listing it in the reservation details, but we were able to enjoy happy hour inside which was appreciated

We sat at one of the low tables. Our waitress was the best I've had for a very long time. She was friendly, professional, and very attentive to our needs. Though this wss my first visit to this restaurant she made me feel like a customer that vists on the regular! The menu was quite extensive and everything sounded delicious. We started with drinks. We had mojitos flavored with pom ginger and pomegranate. They were soo good and refreshing!! For a starter we had pineapple salsa served with Paladar's housemade plantain, malanga, and tortilla chips. I truly reccomend this salsa! Our main course was even more delicious than anything I've talked about earlier. I won't go into the details to keep this review at a reasonable size but I can say please come by and enjoy the ambiance, the great service, and the delicious food. You will not be disappointed!! Did I mention that our waitress was the best ever.....she surely was!! Enjoy!

We both ordered the Chimichurri steak which really surpassed our expectations. There were two issues however. Today I noticed that I received a notice the reservation had been canceled by the restaurant in my email yesterday about two hours before the reservation, no indication as too why. I don't believe this was the case as the restaurant seated us and I did get a text message around the time of the reservation asking us to confirm. However had I seen that message it would have led to serious panic. Second the restaurant had CNN on in the high top seating area near the bar. Given all the disgusting scandals involving multiple CNN staff and CNN's current attacks on free speech, I cannot believe it is appropriate to have on in what otherwise would be a fairly classy restaurant.

So definitely reserve. Our server greeted us and was helpful and friendly. The guacamole with garlic added was very tasty as were the plantains and other chips that accompanied it. My husband's red sangria was good. Not too sweet. His fish tacos were very tasty and crispy. The hot plantains, a side order, were nice and hot. My blue cheese steak salad had a good assortment of greens and veggies. Unfortunately the steak was tough. Chimichurri steak is usually tender but the menu said hanger steak so we were afraid to order it. Overall good experience. Oh yes, the manager visited the tables. Nice touch. I should have told him or our server about my tough steak. They probably would have "fixed" it. Overall a good experience.

I ordered it with Chipotle honey and goat cheese and that’s not what we got. What we got was too spicy and when I brought to the attention of the server she did nothing to remedy.
