    The service as well as the quality of the food was great. The only issue was that there were several items that were not available. We were allowed to choose where to sit which was very nice. Overall , as always everything was very good

    Great food but I wouldn’t come back here. Service is terrible in the kitchen. Expect to be sitting for well over 2 hrs waiting for food. Ridiculous. I call for the manager and the manager turns me over to the head chef who then blames the wait staff. So we have employees and managers pointing fingers at each other. Unprofessional and immature. Never again.

    I have been to this restaurant before many times and the food and service is always amazing. The hostess greeted us nicely, they already had our table prepared. Our server was very nice and would always check on us to see if we needed anything. The food had really great taste I absolutely enjoy dining here.

    Had made a reservation for 4 people for my daughter's birthday. Unfortunately one of the guests got sick the day of the event. When we got there with only 3 persons, we were put thru the ringer and told we we had to pay for the 4th person regardless. Have never experienced anything similar anywhere. This already put us in a bad mood, decided to stay but could not enjoy the meal to the extent that my daughter said "Forget the birthday" Mind you that we had celebrated her birthday a year ago and had a good experience. Will never be back. Too bad they don't take pride in their establishment. Mrs. Ritz

    Many of the dishes were too salty. Chicken soup and the rice with bacon and beans were way too salty to enjoy. They seem to be short staffed because they never filled up our drinks and it was hard to get service. Don’t think we will be coming here again.

    Loved this place. I can see why some people said the wait was slow.. They cook excellent food to order! We went on Easter Sunday and it was packed. Our waitress while she spoke very little English was efficient, and my other party speaks Spanish. I have th Chillo, which is a while fried snapper, and the pork chop Kan- Kan, AKA chulito. My wife had shrimp mofongo. It was very, very good, and I can't wait to go back.
