Our waitress had a very cleavage bearing crop top. Aside from the fact that Servers or bussers had both knocked over and broke glasses of water from our table, the waitress was rude when my sister in law asked for the MUSHROOM QUESADILLA SHE ORIGINALLY ORDERED. Our waitress later admitted to the boyfriend OF MY SIL, she forgot to put it in the system. I doubt we will come back for anything but a beverage.

The overall experience was good. It was very busy the evening of our dinner. The server was excellent and energetic.

I would ask the hostess which type of table you will be seated before you leave the hostess stand. We were placed at a community table next to the kitchen. We walked by several open private tables on our way to the table.

I prefer to eat in a more private environment and would ask in the future. I did mention it to our server but she laughed and asked for our drink order.

I would go back again as I have been several times in the past. The food is always delicious and creative.

The food was really good. However, they were not equipped to handle a Valentine’s Day crowd. The food came out of order and not timed correctly. They added tables so it was like a cafeteria. They should have just done business as usual.

Delicious food! Great sushi and a varied cuisine in a hip, trendy spot. I took a gathering of colleagues here for dinner on a Monday night, and it wasn't too busy considering the night... food was pricey, but since a business meal, quite worth it. Happy drinks are $5 -$7 though, so if it were my own tab, I'd come for happy hour!

Our server was excellent. Kept checking on us at just the right amount. The food was really very good. Ended up sharing a large item that had just the right amount of flavor and spice. Really only downside was having really small tortillas so you couldn't put much in them.

Saturday night and packed beyond belief. So loud we could not hear each other speak across the table from one another. Our booth was supposedly designed to seat 6 (3 on each side) but it was so tight you had to keep your elbows tucked in tight to your ribs while eating. Terribly uncomfortable. The booth was in the basement - concrete floors, walls and ceiling. Felt like we were in a Guantanamo underground prison with soft lighting. Waiter was nice. food was decent, but atmosphere? Who thinks this is an enjoyable experience beyond throngs of high schoolers out for dinner before a dance. Saw about 4 or 5 of those groups and they were literally yelling at one another over the din of restaurant. Awfulllll!

They were able to get tables for me together after a mix up with open table. The server was nice but it took about 35 min to fetch a drink. And the food wasn’t that great.

The seating wasn’t ideal for 6 in a booth even with reservations. The food was good but different than we anticipated. We appreciated getting to dry different entrees.

We went to Chinos for my birthday. They made a special menu with my name, our waitress was amazing and put me first and made sure everything was perfect and was overly attentive even with numerous other parties. Every drink/food items I got came out with sparklers and I loved it! Chinos really knocked it out of the park on making it a great bday

Had fun. We had the $35 appetizer combo. While good we felt it was very light on the meat & seafood and too heavy on fruit and vegetables. Tacos were tasty. We’ll be back.

Not sure why the wait staff has to wear vulgar T-shirts. We didn't find them especially amusing or clever -- it just detracted from our family dinner.

I had the Banana Boat Chicken which was okay, but not great. I also had the Chinopolitan which was delicious (and bubbly). My main complaint is about the manager. I ordered a Chupacabra drink which tasted terrible, so I returned it to the bartender, but I was still billed for it, so the tender called in the manager. I told him "I returned this without drinking it" and he flat-out said I was lying.

Don't support establishments where they think insulting the customer is acceptable.

My husband and I were first time diners at Chino Latino. We loved the vibe of the place, great lighting and music. Lots of tables with groups having fun parties. The food was excellent from small plate, to large plate to dessert. The drinks were good. All in all a great experience. We will go back.

Food was creative and tasty. 2 large Portions were shared between 3 people and still had plenty of left overs to take home. I would definitely recommend the restaurant and would go back soon to try other items on the menu.

The food as always was excellent. Our server was friendly and attentive. The only negative of our visit was that we made reservations for 7:30. We arrived at 7:25, we still had to wait another 30 minutes to be seated. We were not seated until 8pm.

Although the service was abnormally poor compared to my past experiences at Chino Latino, we did have a great meal regardless. I had decided to reserve my friend's birthday dinner here because Chino Latino does an excellent job with birthdays (the birthday message on the menu, the sparkler in the drink, etc.)
