Great food and very friendly staff
Our go-to place when we visit the City. The food is delicious and the service is quick yet personable.
Favorites include the arepas (yellow corn) and the arroz con gambas. The Ropa vieja was also tender and flavorful.
Highly recommend if you’re headed to or from the Zoo or the Met. Great place for a cozy meal of Colombian food.
My husband and I have spent years trying to find the perfect place for Sunday brunch on the UES. We came across Dulce Vida about 2-months a go and we haven’t missed a Sunday brunch here since! Normally, when I find a restaurant I LOVE, I intentionally don’t write a review because I want to keep it special. However, I’m breaking my rule this time because Dulce Vida is so wonderful that I want them to be here forever. The food, the service, the ambiance — it’s everything you could hope for in a local staple. The brunch (and lunch!) is perfect. I hope whoever reads this will love this place as much as we do and be frequent visitors, so we can all keep Dulce Vida as an UES local to love and cherish for the many years to come!
It was my wife’s birthday dinner. She was turning 31. She takes great pride in her Colombian roots and loves a nice quiet dinner with a relaxing atmosphere. Everything about this place was exactly what we was looking for. The food was great. The service was fast and she loved her Sangria. It almost brought tears to her eyes. Highly recommended to those looking for a low-key, up scale Colombian spot to dine in on a date or other special occasions.
Food was incredible. Love how they’ve redone the restaurant space. Will come back!
Dulce Vida is our weekend brunch go to! The food is amazing!
Nice place. Dark meat chicken was over cooked and dry. CoD was very good. May come back to try some of the more traditional Colombian dishes
Excelente, teníamos antojo de bandeja paisa, arepa y jugo de mango en leche, cumplió con nuestras expectativas! Muy rico todo!
Great Service and overall environment at the restaurant. A little expensive for the dishes.
Lovely and cozy UES restaurant serving Columbian style dishes with extensive Gluten Free option. Be certain to make reservations to ensure a table. Courteous and attentive wait staff.
Cozy restaurant. Food was delicious and great service. The Sangria was good, not sweet, which I liked but I thought $45 for a pitcher was a bit overpriced. Great menu selection. I would definitely go back!
The food is decent, the people who own it are very nice.
Food and service was great. It’s a very small place but the three double glass doors open d made it feel very quaint. A bit pricey on the drinks.
This place is extremely small. I was celebrating my birthday and wanted a better ambiance. The food was decent. I wouldn’t go back again.
Tiny, quiet hidden gem of a spot! Delicious Latin American dishes with a Colombian flair, a nice wine list, by the glass or bottle and an interesting cocktail and beer menu. We had the ceviche, sweet plantains, and a couple of specials and enjoyed all. On a nice evening, they have the doors open to the sidewalk, cafe style.
Food wad delicious! Came here for date-night on a Monday. It was very quiet and the waiters were very attentive. We ordered the ceviche, arepas, a red bean casserole with beef, and the cornish hen. All of the food was very good. I would definitely go back!
Dulce Vida was AMAZING! From the excellent service to the tasty food, everything was phenomenal. Prices are great and so are the food portions. The place is a little small but the experience is fantastic.
We shared tostones, the empanadas, arepa ceviche appetizers they were all excellent!!!!! The dishes are nicely presented and the condiments on the table including the guacamole were tasty and diverse, The service was also wonderful.
Our neighbors were complimenting the soups, in particular, the ajiaco.
The place has a new feel and a fresh look. The atmosphere is nice.
A wonderful little bistro with delicious food, great atmosphere, and impeccable service.
My third time there. I'll keep coming back.
Dulce Vida has a great staff and amazing food. The Churrasco is a solid choice for either lunch or dinner. The steak is always prepared exactly as I request and the chimichurri sauce completes the dish. We also like to ask for ahi, their spicy sauce, and add a bit of that to any of their dishes -- it makes the food taste even better. The Tostones Cubiertos is delicious and if you're not very hungry, the portion is large enough to have as one meal instead of an appetizer to share. Also, their sangria is potent enough without sacrificing taste. This Latin restaurant is definitely a must-visit if you're in the neighborhood (and even if you're not)!
The owner was hospitable and attentive to the guest. The staff was friendly. The food was amazing.
Great food, great service, chic space!
a fantastic and quiet spot, great for a date. loved the food, especially the ceviche and ajiaco.
The food was fresh and delicious. Very attentive staff. Hopefully location will be able to expand one day.
Delicious food and everyone who works there is so nice! We will be back again soon.
Cute, homey, small place. Nice staff and good, reasonably priced food.
I can’t wait to go back!!
very nice atmosphere and great service. went for the Valentine's prefixe and looking forward to coming back for the full menu
All was good. Seems like a neighborhood place. However, be aware that they automatically add in 20% service charge (we were a party of 4). We didn’t realize this, and added another 20%. Since we are out of state, we wrote them a letter about this oversight and left several message, but have yet to hear back from them.
Terrific cozy neighborhood restaurant. Service professional, pleasant. All food flavorful, well-prepared in generous portions. Will be back.
We had a nice evening. Good food and good service.
The restaurant is warm and cozy and authentic and nice. Food could have been served hotter but overall it was lovely and yummy
I love Ropa Vieja and this is why I took my family here. The only mild criticism is the temperature in the restaurant - because it is so cold out (obvi not their fault) when one whole wall is made of glass panels that open, it gets freezing in the half the restaurant. Bring an extra sweater if you go (you should go) in the winter!
Came with a Colombian friend who was visiting. He was very excited to see many of the items on the menu. Great food, will definitely be back!
The food is always great
Drinks and food were great!
Really good food sangria was exceptional ( no sweet). Very small venue . Close to the Met
This place is really great. They have a small number of colombian dishes, but all delicious and authentic. The service is low key buy pleasant. It makes me wish I lived in the east side, but for me it is worth going to the other side.
