    We got to this restaurant and it was closed for business. I spent $45 on a cab to get there. How could I have been able to make a reservation on Open Table at a restaurant that is closed for business? I am not happy and have lost confidence in this App

    Food was amazing and very fairly priced. Cozy spot in the midst of a busy NYC street. Highly recommend. Parking garage around the corner.

    Went to Buena Vista to celebrate a friend's birthday, and the service exceeded my expectations. From the time we walked in, we felt welcomed and accepted by everyone working there. The food was amazing, and despite the small size of the tables, our table was constantly cleaned for the next course. I would 110% recommend this place and will be coming back. Amazing!!

    The marketing, reviews and beautiful pictures of this place exceed reality. Food was decent but the poor ambience was overwhelmingly bad. Not a good area with heavy, persistent pot smell wafting through. Super narrow and small. Duped. We couldn’t leave fast enough.

    Fantastic. The best meal I've had in NYC. Service was terrific. Food and presentation wonderful. Try the Ossobuco--so much wonderful flavor. The Guava Basil Margarita was delicious and gorgeous to look at.

    Das Essen war sehr gut und lecker. Die Bedienung sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Es handelt sich um ein kleines und ruhiges Restaurant, was man nur empfehlen kann.
