Service should be more attentive and NOT rushed as to order everything at once like it happened to us.
Long wait to get the main course, people before us were being served first.
The noise level was TOO High, it should be toned down.

This is probably the 5th time we have been here within a year. I can say that the last two times the service has taken a turn for the worst. The second to last visit we let certain things slide but we have realized with this last visit that customer satisfaction seems to be ignored. The food doesn't taste as well anymore and the portions are definitely getting smaller. The servers are not attentive (or at least the one we had), she didn't really check on us to see if we needed anything else, didn't care when my husband wasn't too satisfied with what he ordered. She just asked " is everything ok" but didn't wait for an answer, she walked away! In addition, I think we left her a pretty good tip 20% of the bill. I usually don't go by the percentages, I feel it's whatever the server deserves but I guess we were a little too giving that night. Well, no thank you from her plus we had to wait 15 minutes to get our receipt back. I had to tell another server to tell her to give us our receipt. She finally reappeared. Overall, the food doesn't taste as good as it used to as when we first started dining here and the service has gone down hill. Too bad, we used to like this restaurant but we won't be coming back anymore.

Great atmosphere, good food, good prices.
Get a reservation for around sunset and it makes the experience an amazing one, but even after to see the NYC skyline is great.

We went for our 3rd year anniversary. I ordered the salmon which was good, but my husband ordered the pernil which looked undercooked and he only got about 4 beans on his plate which was very disappointing for him.

Service was very slow. Restaurant unable to smoothly transition from Brunch to Dinner. At the end of the meal, waiter presented the wrong check which we paid. We then had to return to the restaurant to correct the problem.

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday, the atmosphere is gorgeous. The food was great I had steak & i am picky about my steak. The drinks are a little sugary ( i had margaritas ) The menus light up like an iPad also. I had them bring out a chocolate lava cake with ice-cream for his birthday & it was off the HOOK. Came out with sparklers, over the top just the way I like it. Prices super affordable! I'd come back.

One of the ladies at the front desk was very rude when I asked how long it would take to receive my reserved table. Other than that this was a very welcoming and memorable experience. All of the staff, aside from her of course, was fun, enthusiastic and welcoming.

It’s hard to say if I would recommend to a friend or not, but I guess I would for a couple of reasons. The only reasons I would recommend are for the water view and the restaurant inside is very chic.
Besides that the wait time is incredibly long even with a reservation. We had reservations at 8:15. We got seated at 8:45 and finally had our food on the table by like 9:30.
The food didn’t make up for the all the waiting. I order a steak medium rare but it was well done. By that time I was starving and didn’t want to wait for another steak. Also the portions are extremely small.
The drinks were okay but nothing to rave about.

First The valet was setting for 1/2 an hour texting in my car. Second, the food was not Latin like at all. What happened to the spices? Third they put (SUGAR) yes” brown sugar “on the Birthday cake together with Chocolate! You have a dental branch attached to your restaurant? Last but not least- it’s raining and the valet doesn’t even have an umbrella to accompany the guests to their car!!!!
Hints- Valet training- spice the food up!- STOP with the SUGAR!!!- Get BIG umbrellas for the valets. ....and we’ll be back.

Was really hoping for a better experience but the service was horrible. Made reservations, got a seat right away when we got there, then we had to wait 20 mins for someone to take our order. The waitress had an attitude for whatever reason and then never comes back to check on us.
Appetizers was amazing. Dinner was mediocre.

My overall experience was ok but could have been better. My boyfriend and I were celebrating a birthday and we were seated next to a group of girls that were also celebrating a birthday. The entire time the girls were screaming and recording themselves with the flash light on. As you can imagine how annoying and frustrating it could be when you're having an intimate dinner, I had the flashlight pointed in my direction the whole time and I could barely talk without having to scream because they were loud and obnoxious. We were just to close to eachother. The food was okay but lacked a bit flavor. The drinks were a hit though.

I enjoyed it very much, other than receiving a drink with a long black womans hair sticking out of it. I expected the manager to approach my table and apologize, however this did not happen. Overall I did enjoy the restaurant and would go again.

We went for our 6th month wedding anniversary. We were seated right away which normally doesn’t happen here because it’s so crowded. The waitress greeted us with complementary champagne for our anniversary which I thought was so sweet . Service was very accommodating and the food was amazing as always . I always go to this place because of the ambiance and the service and will continue going .

The chicken dishes didn't taste very good. I was surprised to see that if a restaurant can't deliver a well cooked chicken dish, what can you really expect from that place? The ambiance and views were nice but it was way too dark. I understand that most upscale restaurants have somewhat of dark lighting but this was way too dark. The service was very good but since the chef can't even cook a basic chicken dish, I definitely won't be back. It wasn't worth the money and effort to get to this place.

Also, I didn't get any points for this reservation. Why was that? I don't like this kind of service where you make a reservation much ahead of time and you get no points.

Where do I start ?! Ugh. Went there to celebrate my wife’s birthday and was completed disappointed. Every time the waitress came she looked like she was running a marathon and I couldn’t even ask for things because she kept on running off. Then the portions were really small and the drinks were not good. We are honestly not going back. I also spoke to the manager and all he said was that we are short staff. Didn’t show an empathy or care. Def won’t go back.

Great restaurant. Went home and told my whole family about it. The food was so amazing, classy and well priced. The atmosphere was beautiful and the view outside was definitely picture worthy. The service and staff was very prompt, classy and organized. The cakes and candle they brought out for my birthday was both tasty and beautiful! Would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to feel fancy for a day with an inexpensive experience.

I always like this place and like to bring friends here. Most of the time and especial this time the hosts are too uptight! I make reservation for 5. Four of us got there first, we asked nicely that if they can sit us and we start to order but they insisted that we cannot get our table until the 5th one arrive. I would understand if the restaurant was busy but at that time there were many empty tables. I had to ask again and again finally they sat us. that really ruined my mood. At that time more big groups come and of course we have to wait longer for our food and drinks I would recommend this restaurant but also I wish the hosts did not work like robots and used more common sense
