    Food is great but service is always subpar. We were seated and didn’t see our server again for 30 minutes. There’s a certain level of professionalism always absent when dining here, but it’s not too upsetting as it’s the expectation based on the way folks recount their experience here. They should also notify patrons that they included gratuity as a service charge. Not once has the server told me that was the case in my dining experiences here.

    Service was poor. The person waiting on us didn’t have a uniform on, so we were confused at first. Waitstaff took long to come around and take orders, wasn’t sure of the menu when asked questions. Food & drinks were ok,some food came out cold & the tostones were old. I came here when the restaurant first opened and has a wonderful experience, this time around was the total opposite, quality of food and service has gone done down tremendously since then.Would not go back.
