Not to many attention from the waitress, even when we complained about the below :
We ordered various plates to share at the beginning being told plates will come one after the other, they all came at the same time = no more room on the table, rushed to eat, some dishes were cold by that time.
Food is delicious though.
The ambiance is very original (eclectic decor, like the menu), including the waiter/tress outfit, which bring a very eclectic crowd.

This was our sixth visit to Cuchi Cuchi. The food has always been good. This time it was even better. Just great. Our server, Max, was very personable. The NOISE LEVEL, however, was nearly unbearable

We loved everything about Cuchi Cuchi – the decor, the waitresses outfits, the waitresses, and, of course, the food.

However, the noise level was excruciatingly loud - painful. Granted, there was a fairly large and very noisy party seated next to us, but it was so difficult to hear we had to literally shout at each other. The hostess offered to seat us in the front part of the restaurant, but she said that soon a party of 10 would be seated there and the noise would be just as bad. We decided to stay where we were as the alternative didn’t seem to solve the problem.

It really spoiled what would have been an otherwise perfect evening of dining out. I don’t know what could have been done in a situation like that – I do not have the experience - but one would hope the restaurant does.

I’m a foodie that rarely returns to any restaurant simply because there are so many i want to try. This is an exception. Every component of this experience was exceptional. We had two veggies, two meats and a fish and all were off the charts amazing. I’m definitely going back.

This place is pretty mind blowing. Wife and I went as an invitation with a co-worker who chose the restaurant. His wife’s favorite... it was EXCELLENT!! we took turns ordering share items back and forth for a couple hours... at one point the other couple ordered octopus which we would NEVER have tried otherwise. It was my second favorite dish of the evening! Overall the food, atmosphere and service were on a higher level. FANTASTIC experience!!

We were celebrating a friends engagement. We had been in a few times before and loved it. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was perfect for the celebration. However, our service left something to be desired. Our waitress kept disappearing for long periods of time, forgetting rounds of drinks, and we likely would have spent a lot more money had she been more attentive.

I've been to this restaurant several times, and the highlights for me are the cocktails. On our visit Saturday, I had 3 bad ones. First was a muddled fruit drink that was sugary with no fruit (I've had this before and it's normally one of my favorites because it is fresh and not overly sweet which was not the case this time); next another drink with a missing ingredient that they didn't inform me of ahead of time - it didn't taste right, so I asked for something else and they made a big deal about taking it off the bill which was uncomfortable and changed the mood for our group; final drink order took forever to come and also didn't taste good so I didn't finish it. I have NEVER sent a drink back, and I'm normally not picky about cocktails - this was just an unusually bad experience. Hoping it was just a lapse at the bar and they'll be back because they're usually great. Otherwise the food was fantastic as always, and the ambiance is amazing. I'll probably give it another chance at some point, but this experience put me off for a while.

They seated us in the back by the kitchen door, which I would expect for a walk-in but not with a reservation. The drinks took forever, they arrived after our food did. The waiter was very nice and apologetic. The food was fine.

This was a friends' get-together to cheer up my guest. I explained that to our server, Stela, and she made this a perfect way to help my friend get out of the dumps. While Cuchi Cuchi is always a good choice, Stela made this my best visit ever. Thank you, Stela!!!

Great food, fun decor, a bit pricey, but overall a great place and a fun time. It was a Saturday night in August and the restaurant was busy and it appeared that the air conditioner was struggling to keep up. Other than that, everything was great.

Cuchi Cuchi is such a fun place to go with friends! The food is excellent. There are so many choices, and each is better than the next. Seafood, chicken beef, even vegies are a party for your mouth! The custom made cocktails are pretty fun as well. If you want something a little different, a little festive, with great food and a lively atmosphere, this is the place!

How can you not have a good time at Cuchi Cuchi? The atmosphere is so warm, cozy, sensual and inviting. The waitstaff always looks so cute with their fun outfits and bubbly personalities. You really feel like you’ve come to a big party. The food is eclectic and delicious. Both my pal and I can’t eat gluten and we can always count on this place to give us a gluten-free menu. We had the scallop ceviche, beet salad and potatoes dauphinois. Everything was delicious. We enjoyed a bottle of Fleurs de Prairie, which complemented the rich and creamy potatoes, the earthy beets and the sweet and citrusy ceviche.
All in all a lovely meal, as usual!

It was a celebration of my son’s 36th birthday. The cocktail menu is extensive and the bartender was happy to make recommendations. Each of the three of us had something different in mind and the bartender nailed the selections for each of us.

The wait staff was beyond expectations. Friendly, knowledgeable, courteous and right there when you needed them. Every dish came out of the kitchen just as the chefs finished preparing them. If it was supposed to be hot, it was steaming. If it was supposed to be chilled, it was cold. Excellent service.

The restaurant is decorated in a funky eclectic style and when we commented on it and the waiters shirt, we were told that the management asks the waiters to follow in that tradition in their dress. It’s such a cool place!

The food was delicious, and it too is from all over the globe. All our choices were big hits, from the ceviche to the garlic shrimp, Moroccan chicken, chimichurra chicken and skirt steak. And the grilled bread was excellent too.

We would go back in a heartbeat!

Highly recommended!

We had 4 dishes. 2 were outstanding (the 2 hot dishes) & 2 were ok (cold dishes from the top list. The server was very nice, but somehow had decided to have one of the cold dishes as the ‘main course), so it came out last, after the duck crepes & grilled eggplant. Also too long a wait for the drinks.

The restaurant was good for a unique place to check out, but ambiance didn't meet expectations for a special night out celebrating our anniversary. We were looking for something a little more romantic and festive, and it was just OK. The ambiance was so so, and the food was good but not great. Think it was likely because we had an early reservation, therefore might not have felt as lively as it may later in the evening. The concept is fun though! Think we just had too high of expectations for the venue.

Our server brought water to our table and one set of drinks and then disappeared for over 20 minutes. Finally the hostess appeared and asked us if our order has been taken and we told her it had not and she apologized and took our order. It was another 15 minutes before our server appeared and he didn’t even bother to explain his absence or check on us.

Drinks came so slow (15-20 minutes between each order) that we started ordering them before we were done with current drinks

Lastly, to add insult to injury, it was my birthday and they sang happy birthday and butchered my name.
