Love this place. The perfect neighborhood spot. The shrimp appetizer is great and so is the seared ahi tuna. Also had the charrasco steak and it was excellent.

Outstanding meal! The food was phenomenal. I had the Chilean seabass, and my son had the skirt steak with chimichurri. Both delicious!

This is a nicely decorated with exposed brick wall small restaurant near the Port Authority. Although the place is small it was easy to have a quiet conversation without people over hearing it. We had the fish and the chicken breast stuffed with shrimp and for an appetizer we had the octopus Which was perfectly cooked.All of the dishes were delicious and their presentation and plating of the dishes was quite elegant.They have a nice selection of cocktails. Only downside was when I returned a wine that was too warm or tasted off, the waiter almost seem bothered by my request and he was just a bit too casual with the service. Other than that I would certainly recommend this place if you are in the area of Port Authority and need a nice place to wait for a bus or to chill out.

Food and drinks were unique and very tasty. Service was great. Only wish there were vegetarian options on the menu and that the front space had more heat or that the doors were kept closed more often because it was very cold.

Absolutely! Food is fabulous and you wouldn't believe the presentation. Such a little place with such amazing food, kudos to the chef. A must try their octopus. I have never had it so soft.

We have been here several times prior to heading to a show. The food is always good and the service is attentive without being overbearing.
