Amazing restaurant, most definitely coming back, the food was amazing, the service was amazing, no complaints at alll
Great place with nice service and great food
First time here, looking to eat close to Emelin for a show later. Great find. The indoor decor is very nice, the food was wonderful- tasty, unique, not your standard Mexican. Only issue was a little bit of language difficulty with our server, but we worked through it!
The best of the best! Always a good time! If my first review didn’t say it, I’ll say it again…EVERYTHING FROM FOOD TO STAFF IS OUTSTANDING. When you can joke around with the waiter and owner, nothing beats that! This place is worth every penny. See y’all soon
Great food service drinks
The service was amazing. The servers were very attentive. Keep up the good work guys.
We returned to try some other dishes on the menu we were interested in the last time. We bought guests with us and everyone was pleased with their dishes, the fajitas, mofungo, fried snapper, and basa. The quac app and fried hot honey brussel sprouts were very tasty.
The cocktails were also very nice. Service was very attentive and helpful. Everything was very consistent. We enjoyed our experience.
Warm, friendly and welcoming. Good food; good value
Jonathan was totally awesomesauce, food and drinks was amazing
Amazing food and great service! Will be going back ☺️
Food was delicious, service was excellent
The food was very good and plenty. The waiters were friendly and attentive. The restaurant was clean, a pleasant atmosphere.
My husband and I ate here for the first time. We ordered guacamole to start and the waiter said they didnt have any. I thought he was joking. It's a mexican restaurant. We then decided to try the brussel sprouts which were actually very good. For our main course we ordered the paella. The waiter said it would be more than enough for two people. It was an expensive entree so we figured we would try. It was barely enough for us, but even worse, the seafood was not fresh at all. It seemed like it was thawed and was watery and awful. They threw some cold pimentos on top and it really only made the dish worse. If we ever decide to go back, I'll still to the fajitas. The neighboring table ordered them and they looked pretty good.
Delicious short rib tacos and attentive service! First time there and not the last.
My wife took a neighbor and shared several appetizers which they loved …. Not to mention their delicious Margaritas & wine 🍷 .
They will be back soon 😱😱
Another reasonably priced delicious meal. Service was very good and the drinks divine !
You owe it to yourself to visit DonJito. You won’t be disappointed.
We enjoyed our dinner during restaurant week. The paella was delicious and full of chorizo and shellfish. The Tres Leche cake was soooo good. The art work makes for a cool vibe during an outstanding meal. This was our first visit, but it wont be our last.
Our server Manny is the best. Ambience, Food, Service is IMPECCABLE!
Food was just okay. Paella was bland and had very little seafood or chorizo,. The skirt steak was tough and the side dish it came with was cold. Asked to have it hot, they way it was supposed to be, but the second time it was served lukewarm. We gave up. They were out of one dessert, so we tried tres leches cheesecake. It was overly sweet. Waiter was accommodating and staff was pleasant.
Went there for the first time during restaurant week.
The service and the food was excellent. Portions were adequate. Nice ambiance.
Even during restaurant week the options were delicious. We ordered from both the restaurant week and regular menu, and loved all of our food. The drinks are strong and delicious, and the service is friendly and efficient. We did wait a little longer than I would’ve liked only because the restaurant was super busy because of restaurant week. On a typical night though, this place runs like clockwork and the manager is phenomenal. He goes out of his way to make sure every diner is happy and has what they need. Great ambience, a lot of fun, and not overcrowded. They even have a beautiful outdoor patio with heaters.
Manager Jonathan was great. Very attentive, and friendly.
The ambiance was energetic. May have to wait a bit for service due to this pandemic but when taken care of, Marta, our hostess, was exceptional
Yes, it was a busy night but waiting 1 hour for appetizer is unacceptable. They also ran out of dessert at 8pm. Food was okay but nothing to write home about. Definitely not going back.
A good variety of selection for restaurant week menu. Apps, entrees and dessert indicative of their regular menu, so a plus to know what their food is really like and not created just for restaurant week. The dishes are all very flavorful and nice size portions. The drinks list are creative blends of ingredients and well balanced, example, the variety of margarita drinks. The staff is very quick and attentive.
The ambiance can get very noisy when the restaurant is very full.
We went in restaurant week I must day the food was delicious and the service was excellent. I want to go back to try the red snapper.
ALWAYA a delicious experience at DonJito. You owe it to yourself and your family / friends to try it out.
You will NOT be disappointed.
Service was friendly and not rushed. Food was excellent. Fun vibe!
I've been wanting to try this place for a while and finally went during Restaurant Week. Food was delicious however the drinks were not - they were too strong and we were unable to finish them. Would come back but perhaps next time order a beer with dinner.
My wife and I have eaten here and have always enjoyed our meals. The ambiance under the Pergola is terrific. Makes you feel like you are at a vacation resort.
Nicely decorated. Staff aimed to please. We would def return.
Everything was absolutely delicious! Exceptional/outstanding service!
We had the paella, empanadas, stuffed plantain and drink was mango madness - I’m still drooling thinking about everything. Definitely recommend and will definitely be coming back!
Always a great experience!! Jonathan is an amazing manager and really makes you and your party feel like VIP. All servers are efficient and super nice. The food, drinks and atmosphere is exceptional.
Our go to spot for neighborhood dinner. Always great food and service! Will be back!
ALWAYA a pleasant dining experience. Food quality, value and taste are always pleasantly consistent. The prices are reasonable and dining under the Pagoda in the back is lovely.
Food was excellent, outdoor dining was great! Thankfully it was a beautiful night because it took a very long time to receive our food. In defense of the restaurant, they had a very large party so I do not think this is representative of the service in general. Would definitely go back!
Waitress Marta was a joy. Food tasted very good. Took a bit longer than expected given it was quite empty. Calamari was perfect crispy and tender at the same time. The pork chop and the risotto were both a tad over cooked even though the flavor was perfect. The pernil which was a special was a bit on the salty side. The Flan similarly was just a bit on the form side. Overall very good but has room left for improvement. The outdoor area in the back is very pleasant.
The food was good but the service was horrible. We waited 20 mins before anyone came over to ask us for drinks and then it took another 20 mins for the drinks to come. We waited over a 30 to have someone come take our order.
They are very under staffed but this was ridiculous.
Won’t be going back anytime soon
Very reliable, love the menu variety and the ambience, especially on the back patio
Food was quite good. Pleasant outdoor dining setup. The service was spotty because the restaurant was busy.
