Chino Latino Ratings and Reviews
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.)
Food was average. Would like to try the sushi options they had available. Was expecting the food to blow my mind with what they were charging but that was definitely not the case. The only thing that was exceptional was our server. She was very friendly, informative, and professional.
I first went to Chino Latino in 2002 while working in Minneapolis. It has long been this road warrior's all time favorite road restaurant, and I make sure to eat there every time I am in town. Food is great; the recipes are so very different than the normal restaurant fare. Little loud for table conversation, but a fun and lively spot.
It was my birthday and the waiter was absolutely incredible! They had a really awesome surprise for, that I'll leave it up to everyone else to figure out if they go for a special occasion :). The waiter was really fun and made sure my friends and I were having a fantastic time. Definitely, recommend.
The food is fine -- not exceptional. Huge menu, but a smaller, more focused one with fewer options but more standout dishes would be better. What really makes this place irritating is the crowd it attracts -- lots of college kids and huge groups of loud 20-somethings drinking overpriced cocktails out of pineapples (literally). This place is trying so hard to be hip and NYC-esque. It's a cavernous space, very hard to have an intimate meal -- they seem to want a loud, chaotic atmosphere, like you're having dinner at a nightclub. The prices are also pretty outrageous even for the neighborhood. $17-20 for a single sushi roll? Seriously?
Also, a sign by the host stand says, literally, "My couch may pull out, but I don't" -- which is really obnoxious and offensive. Everything about this place is in poor taste and they seem weirdly proud of it.
Chino Latino is a fantastic restaurant for a get together with friends and family. The food is served family style, which is great because you can sample all types of food. The food also has amazing authentic flavor! Service was very quick and food came right away. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
Came here with a group of friends for a birthday dinner. All of us were new to the experience and not one left unpleased. Portion sizes are fairly big and we all loved our food. Our server was great at helping us make decisions and she had great recommendations. Did not have to wait long for service or food. Overall a great dining experience!
