We came to this restaurant to celebrate my mother’s birthday and it was a very good experience. Joey was very nice and accommodating of our party. The food was good, the service was a bit slow at first but then Joey made everything work well for us. The view to the East River is exceptional.

Made reservations and waiting in the cold for 45 mins. Then was rushed to order and eat. The plate was taken from the table when I wasn’t done eating. Staff were pleasant even though.

Food was great however be aware of rude, distasteful Covid late dinning service. The last reservation is at 9:30 pm, which is enough time to order and enjoy your meal. But they sit you 15 to 20 minutes after your reservation time take time taking your dinner order and bring the food out 30 minutes before you have to leave but the worse part is they open all the doors and you have to eat in the freezing cold or put your jacket on and finish your meal. Either stop seating earlier or seat and serve in a timely manner.

Wonderful setting I love this restaurant especially that it was by the water. The food was amazing as well as the service. Went for my significant others birthday dinner and everything was up to par. Will definitely be recommending this spot as well as going during the day to enjoy the view this location has to offer. 5 stars.

Everything was awesome! The food and drinks were delish, and my family felt very safe dining out during Covid times. Everyone had a mask on and kept their distance, they sat us on a corner where there wasn’t too many people around us which was good

Only thing is our reservation was at 8pm, didn’t get seated until 830. So that was kinda eh, but once we were seated it was all good!

My date and i had reservations for 7:30 although they had a 15 mins late grace period. They still made some accommodations for us to be seated by 8pm although we arrived late.

Server never came to the table, even when we got up to find staff to ask for a server after 20 minutes. Busser said the server would come soon. Didn’t happen. Asked for the manager. A staff member pointed out who the manager was as he walked by and told me I could speak with him if I wanted yet the manager just kept walking, at which the staff member just shrugged their shoulders. Can’t say worst dining experience since I didn’t actually dine - can say shockingly poor hospitality however.

It is a very nice place, great view and good location, it is Latino music but not reggaetón (happy about this) so you can enjoy Latin music and nice conversation at the same time. The food it is ok, casual food and the prices are according to that. They have AMAZING happy hour, I just tried wine but also they have great prices for cocktails. The service was nice but some times they were in the table too many times asking if you are ok or if you are done with the food when we still had food at the table. Place was not full so sometimes is nice if you let people to enjoy slowly and to talk.

Amazing scenery. I was happy to catch the last day of indoor dining. A great place for any special occasion. Presentation and temperature of the food was perfect. The time in which it took to the receive the food was about 15 mins or less. I had the steak it was fresh and well flavored.

The restaurant has a door guy who was very polite and friendly, the hostess sat us fast. Tables are spread apart which I like ( I hate sitting too close to people in general before COVID). Our waitress was amazing I forget her name but she was so nice and suggested great thinks. Consistently checked on us. Towards the end I dropped a knife on the table and picked it up and immediately a manager came over with a new fork and knife set which was amazing. Another manager stopped by to check on us as well. This was a great dinning experience.
The food was superb. I ordered Arroz con Mariscos with a side of plantain. I ordered a glass of champagne. For dessert I ordered the chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream and I loved how it came with the graham crackers.I finished everything.

Our host was amazing. We had about a 10 minutes wait (we arrived early) he apologized and got us a free round of shots. Very nice! Also I wish I got his name he was a joy. I went to let him know it was my friends birthday he said "okay got you" and that was that! They came out before the bill with a dessert and a sparkler candle and it was perfect!! Thank you very much! It was a great experience!

Soooo horrible, never in my life i received customer service with the hostess and the manager from me dealing with. How is it that i was not allowed to take a photo where people were not even 12 feet next to tables. The manager told us that it’s against the law to take photos. i gladly ordered my one drink and appetizer and took my money somewhere else. I wanted to celebrate my birthday here because i hear nothing but great things about it. But i know not to come any more.
