The food was really good. I didn’t like the fact that we had to wait for more of my guess to come in order to be seated. Other than that I a good place to eat and hang out.

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.)

The setting is wonderful and full of energy. Our Happy Hour drinks offered a nice variety and tasty appetizers to share. We liked the Korean BBQ chicken, the tacos and queso/chips. The entire place was entertaining along with the people.

Birthday dinner for a friend.
Valet sign was out front and drove around 3 different times and called the restaurant for someone to come out and no one ever did. Other than that, food was good, service was a little slow but all around okay.

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.

Chino offers both small plates and main courses to share. We opted for the small plates and sushi rolls. I recommend the empanadas, pork belly steam buns and Fire Roll.

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.

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!
