Nice place, pretty view in long Island City, drinks are well done and the food was tasteful. Our server Sayuri was very attentive and made our experience better. I’ll definitely come back to try other options on the menu. Don’t leave without trying the lobster and crab tequeños. Arroz Con Mariscos, Crispy Arepas, Pina Colada Tres Leches… everything was delicious

Service was horrible, food was very salty, and seating felt like I was in detention, facing a corner. End of the night I had to apologize to my girlfriend about the experience.

Nice restaurant, but the fans were so strong it ruined the food experience. making the food cold too quickly. I think being seated inside would've made for a better experience.

The churrasca steak and pernil were very nice, even better when we asked for some hot pepper sauce. The seasoning is a bit understated for us. Atmosphere is excellent, with good music, and a view of Manhattan.

We were told there was a strict dress code for the indoor dining. Except when we walked in, there were many tables with t-shirts and ladies with crop tops and short shorts. While they chartered to many large party patrons that did not follow the dress cold established. I’m disappointed in their service. I wish them well, but i will not return.

Waitress only put one of our two entrées in; no apology or recognition of mistake nor did we receive a manager visit. The busier service more helpful than the waitress. Overall though food was fantastic. Will definitely return.

When we first arrive were able to get a table outside we finally sat down the table that we had was broke and it took a while for someone to come over and fix it the next table was very wobbly we just put up with it. The weather was nice but could've came over a few more times to ask if he needed a refill no drinks. My food order was messed up but I did fix it everyone ate while I waited for my food. The food was really good and made up for the small mistakes.

I loved the atmosphere, food and service. If I could/would make a suggestion, it would be to update the "dress code" on the site. It states to "dress to impress", however, during my visit I saw a few people "underdressed". It would be GREAT if this place stayed open later as well, but that's just wishful thinking. I loved it nonetheless.

Went here for a birthday dinner. The food and drinks were really good. I had the churassco steak and their Midsummer Nights dream and the Blue Hawaiian. However dinner was very rushed. It was a little over an hour I’d say from our first drink to the cake being brought out. There was no time to really take in the atmosphere of the restaurant or for much conversation. Also, the birthday girl lost a pair of her sunglasses in the restaurant even after we came looking for them minutes after dining there. They were thrown out. Overall a good experience but definitely not the best.

I'm Carlos Mena,
I usually visit the restaurant with family and friends because I like the ambient, food, attention and prices. In the las 20 days I visited the restaurant twice with a lot friends, like yesterday I had a group of 9 people.

I Had some issue with the waiter and busboy, the first one took us out the menus from us before finishing our choice and took them to him without our authorization even though we told him that we were still choosing, the second one in three opportunities tried to clear the dishes from the table before we wering finishing our dinner. I went to the counter asking for the manager to manifest my disagreement, however the manager was very unpolite, rude and very bad tempered, I wanted to manifest my disagreement and his attitude didn't let me manifest my frustration.

There is the first time that I felt this bad behavior in the restaurant but I should be improve. I understand that the restaurant was in their full capacity and the things could be crazy but the manager is there to handle these situations and he should have the experience, ability and criteria to avoid the problems became more big.

Regards
Carlos Mena.

My wife and I had reservations to celebrate our anniversary. In the notes we asked to be seated by the window to have a view. And the hostess did exactly what was asked. Our server Maria was so polite and attentive. The food and drinks were absolutely amazing. We would definitely go back.

The food was very tasty but the dining area is a bit small . It might be time for them to expand the dining area for more seating . I wish they would bring back their delicious Empanadas on the menu .

This was the first time I had been here and so had my friend who lives within walking distance. The food and drinks were so delicious and affordable. The portions were filling. They also accommodated us with a baby, without any issues. The aesthetics were on point. We will visit again soon, There are a few other items on the menu we want to try.
