Food great as always. Slightly louder then normal. Probably because of all the larger groups. The server was really friendly, but rarely came to the table to check on us.

The food was actually pretty disgusting to be honest. And the frozen drink I ordered was more like a half frozen frothy slop. Very disappointing. Don’t plan on coming back.

The food was great. Service was a little lack luster. We were only a two top in a section that seemed like the server was managing many large parties. So we were forgotten about after the food was delivered. We sat with empty drinks and were never offered another round of beverages or dessert.

We had the best waiter! Loved the restaurant! & we had 6 people! Food was delivered quickly on a busy Sat night. The noise level was high but we were able to enjoy our dinner with our daughter with Autism. We will definitely be coming back!!

I was freezing by the window...service was super slow...our orders were messed up a few times...however, I could tell they were busy and the waiters were trying their best. The food was also delicious . So that helped...

Great date night or large group night! It was just the two of us, but we noticed they can handle bigger groups with ease. We ordered the Big Kahuna platter and shared it. It was plenty for two and so tasty! We just moved to SLP and will be counting this place as one of our favorites going forward. Great service, wonderful ambiance and yummy food!

Server admittingly forgot to put in our main entree order until we reminded him 1 hour later .. then he said our guest's margarita and birthday shot would be comp'd. We got the bill and nothing was comp'd but we were just aggrivated and ready to get out at that point.

Food and service were excellent. It was very noisy, even on a Sunday night with many empty tables , that made conversation a little challenging.

I chose Chino because I know for sure the food will be excellent! I wanted to treat my team to a nice meal and Chino’s is the first place I thought of because all the food taste great every time. With my reservation I had more people than originally planned and they very kindly and quickly set us up on a bigger table. Overall we had a great time!

Always great here but the noise level is so terribly loud That you truly can’t converse with more than one person at your table

Service was good and the food was good! My drink had a bug in it and I hadn’t realized it until it was half gone but they still replaced it! Which I thought was awesome! It’s not like I brought the bug in my pocket or something right?

Restaurant needs to update the menu posted online. We went to get paella (which was listed on their menu online) only to find out they removed it a few months ago. Then we ordered some dish which we had instructed to leave out the jalapenos, but they neglected to do so. The waitress simply apologized. Good grief. Won't be returning here again.

first time at this restaurant and It was ok. The place is very dim, could not read my menu very easily. I did like the sushi and the drinks although I thought it was over priced. I would say this is a one and done for me.

This was a must go to when in town for work. Well things change and I haven't been there for 8 years. Personal travel brought me back and I brought some locals with me.

For me it was just a great as I always remembered. I was so grateful for the hostess and staff accommodating our seating choice. It was a Sunday so not every area was available for dining. Love the food and the Chinopolitan is just to much fun to pass up for me.

For my guests. They will make the drive often, they said. And will bring more people with them.

Go hungry and thirsty. You are welcome!

It was a fun experience and loved going. Wasn't sure how to order so ended up with too much. Next time I would order less small appetizers. Didn't feel like you get much for the price you pay. Overall a great experience though. Would definitely go again.

We wanted a special night prior to our daughter going back to college, I had requested a comfy booth away from a noisy area. There were several booths all open along the wall we were at but the hostess seated a family with 4 small, screaming children-directly next to us. Horrible ambiance. Really hard for us to talk and maintain a conversation.

I absolutely love Chino Latino, and it was the perfect spot for my cousin's bachelorette party. We had a group of 10 and our waitress was PHENOMENAL, even with all the noise happening throughout the restaurant. No mistakes with our food and drinks, everthing tasted wonderful, and the service was kind and courteous. One of my favorite spots!

Service was a bit slow. Visits from wait staff were too long in between drinks and courses. Wait staff over-recommended amount of food. But other than that, our first trip was great!

I have been to Chino Latino several times and the service is always good, but on Saturday is was excellent! Rosie was extremely friendly and attentive, even with the restaurant being very busy!! The food and drinks are always very good and if you aren't sure what to get the waitstaff is very helpful. If you are looking for a fun place to get together with friends I highly recommend it - and see if you can get Rosie!!

The restaurant was way to noisy because of large groups poundings shots while the staff cheered them on. One large table was obnoxiously loud and screaming over everyone. The acoustics are horrible. I couldn’t hear a word that anybody at my table was saying unless we shouted. We eventually gave up talking and agreed to never return.
