La camarera que me tocó muy odiosa, nos dejaba esperando mucho tiempo para atendernos y el restaurante prácticamente vacío. Muy mal servicio la verdad. La comida y el ambiente en general está bien

amazing food, great environment, however we were seated 40 minutes after our reservation time. The manager gave us a round of drinks on the house but i think reservations should be prioritized a bit more. Still would come back again though!

The drinks were very good, the service was excellent and the ambiance was very good. The food was nice but should have been served hotter and needed salt according to my taste. The server was excellent. She made sure that we had an excellent dining experience

I would never go back here for anything, except for maybe the drinks. Main course is like an appetizer portion. The tostones were dry. The pernil was good. The waitress was inattentive. I also didnt like sitting on a hard wooden bench with my legs dangling off. I will try blend on the water next time not thos location, no ty.

The food is alright, better than average but nothing special. I recommend the Calamari Blend, it was really good. The entrees were served in big portions which is great. It was so much food that we took a to go box for home. The staff were friendly. The only thing I noticed was that my waitress wasn't taking the job seriously. She was very laid back and at the end added her own tip percentage to my bill and did not mention that at all, I wouldn't have know if I didn't see a slight cutoff of the tip percent on the payment terminal device. It would had been okay if it was a 10-18% tip but she added 20%. That's crazy and just rude, I had only planned on giving a 10 dollar tip, she added 20 dollars to the already high bill. I also noticed she didn't offer a paper bill option, I'm not sure if the restaurant is cashless payment only or if they rush/force electronic payment so you wouldn't notice the bill. I didn't have time to really think or ask questions while I was paying because everything felt so rushed and couldn't really see anything besides the signature line on the Payment terminal device. It was only after I left that I realized I saw an option to choose the tipping amount and that I also didn't get a receipt. I also asked if there is a birthday celebration special and the waitress said no. That was confusing because on their reviews page, people have posted cakes with sparklers and when making a reservation, they ask if you are celebrating a special occasion, Why ask if you not offering anything to help celebrate the occasion? Overall, the experience was okay, the servers and cleanup crew were very nice and great. It was the waitress and my salty entrée that brought the experience down to three stars.
