    Food is excellent, service was very informative as to what each plate consisted of - a nice touch! Also, water glass was never empty - always a good sign of attention to service.

    The food was awful and very expensive for what you get. We ordered 6 or 7 items (so we tried a lot), all of which were poor. The hummus and the calamari were so spicy (we're not bad with spice) to the point where they were unenjoyable. We had the slaw, which was so bland, tasted like water. We ordered the street corn, which was the best thing we ordered but even that doesn't hold a candle to what you can get at La Carnita. We also had the ceviche and the empanadas. The ceviche was just ok and the empanada tasted like a Big Mac from McDonalds...almost exactly (which is not what you want from an empanada). Portion sizes were small and very expensive. I understand prices across the city have increased, to be expected, but the quality has plummeted. What happened? If the prices were lower I'd feel better about the quality of food that we received, but when you price things higher then the expectation is that the quality will match. If you're thinking of going for food, don't. Only go for drinks and the atmosphere.

    Overall great time and I would go back. I think the only short coming was the beef tenderloin dish wasn't worth the price- the beef was slightly chewy . The rice dish and the apps we had were amazing

    Great atmosphere, food was solid and the service was good (not great). Rooftop is beautiful, covered and good seating for small groups. The music during dinner (6:30-8) was really loud though, hard to speak to others at the table.

    excellent customer service from host, server and bar tender. Food was amazing. I have not been there to eat after covid. Ceviche, Duck confit rice was great. Brought two guests from NZ, they were impressed. Music was nice, not too loud on a sunday. Overall experience was great. always looking for more variety on cocktails and beer options though :-)

    Food and ambience was nice, but service was terrible. Food was not prepared the way it was asked to. Server took a long time to take our order and left the menus on the table overcrowding the table. Didn’t seem to care about the mistakes that were made. Rooftop was allowed to be booked even though they closed it for brunch

    Food was great, although a little spicier than I had expected. Service was friendly from the start, but we had to wait for approx. 15 minutes for them to bring the bill. I will come back and try the other brunch options.

    Food and service were excellent. We booked for the rooftop and were coincidentally there for their Fiesta Hour. Street corn is amazing! Chicken drumsticks looked great. Only regret is not asking for an outside table overlooking King when we booked. Table options for us when we arrived were not ideal but enjoyed nonetheless.

    The food was delicious. I could eat the ceviche all day! However, the patio is a bit of a disappointment. it was worn, and we were shoved in a narrow corner (there was an old umbrellas stand in the way of my chair and I had to sit perched on the edge) and my guests were facing a glass with a view of the stairwell about 4 ft from them. The menu is quite limited and in my view very overpriced. The food was very good, don't get me wrong, but it was expensive. We shared a few appetizers and the catch of the day, priced at $65 for the one fish dish, no sides. After a $22 cocktail and a bottle of wine (which was $75, so fairly reasonable). They did have a live DJ spinning some good music inside, so we could hear it at a moderate level on the patio. The service was very good. Overall, it was a nice night out, but I don't think I will be back.

    The food and ambience 10/10. However, our waitress wasn’t friendly nor attentive. Going to a brunch place you’d expect to start your day with someone who is prepared for their morning shift not someone who seems to be asleep.

    Food was very mediocre, and not traditionally latin. The “grande” empanada was more of a wonton, and the ceviche was more of a poke bowl. The CGS chips were just vegetable chips I could buy at the grocery store. Good service, nice atmosphere. Food certainly not worth the price. I would not go back.
