Hostess was not welcoming. Our waitress was great. Food & drinks very good. Paint night going on & could hear the person in charge speaking on microphone. Very distracting.

Empandas for $1 were not honored at first by waitress. She explained that I have to buy 1 drink for each $1 empanada. I told her that I was buying 1 Sangria pitcher for $40.00. She then said that was considered 1 drink.

Frustrated I then complained to the Maitra Di and he said I can have as many empanadas as I want.

Point is there was unnecessary drama over the empanadas in front of my family and other nearby customers.

Took a teen for her birthday. Worst service we ever had there. Server didn’t listen and didn’t get our appetizers correct. Walked by, commented that all seems fine with our drinks and the glasses were completely empty. We only drank limeade and made the mistake of asking for a refill and she stated, in a sarcastic tone, “ you mean another round?”, to make sure we knew we would be charged. We never questioned prices. Took plates away before our appetizer (missing one) came out. Spoke to manager who said he’d never had a complaint before and did nothing to make it better. The teen has allergies and when we were asked if we wanted dessert we said no because of those allergies so the server gave the teen the dessert nenu anyway. Server was extremely quick to get paid but could care less about anything but flirting around the restaurant. Manager was unprofessional in his demeanor and appearance. Never again.

Table was dirty when I was seated. The service was slow and inattentive.

After the appetizers, there were no clean plates brought to the table. Had to eat the main course with old chicken bones still on my plate.

The DJ was way too loud, and the food came slowly and was nothing special.

I wouldn’t go back.

DON'T GO ON SUNDAY EVENING IF YOU WANT QUIET CONVERSATION.
Usually love coming to this place BUT this time I was somewhat disappointed. There was live music which might make some guests happy BUT the sound volume was painful to the ear in the main dining area. I requested a seat away from the music so I could hear my wife but even in the last row of the side room it was too load to hear. Food as always was excellent.

Always a great dining experience. The Cuban band was playing- they were great. Difficult to hold conversation in the main dining room when band is playing however they have seating in another dining area if you prefer. The food is always delicious.

Fourth time here and second time with mediocre service. Yes it was a busy night and live music was great , but service was way below par. Appetizers came before pitcher of sangria. Unfortunately , the task of flagging down the wait staff detracted from the entire dinner. Food was ok. Don’t book the tables if you can’t handle the crowd.

Service was a little slow for a Sunday night. Very polite servers though. Apologetic about the slow service. Desserts and coffee served too far apart from each other. Some entrees weren’t as hot as they should have been. I spoke to a manager about having a candle inserted into one of our desserts for a birthday celebration just after we placed our dessert order with our server. He assured me he would take care of it ....it never happened. Not sure where the breakdown was. A little disappointing.

We had to wait 30 minutes to get our drinks and appetizers. An hour for our food. Only got forks - no knives and I had to request a knife so I can cut my chicken. Were sat by band and close to door, couldn't talk to my party much because of the noise and crowd that surrounded our table.

Made reservations at 8pm on Saturday night and finally got a table at 9pm. They need to organize their reservation scheduling. Food is good. Drinks are good. I wish they would dim the lights to make the ambience better. The tables are so cluttered.

The live band is a nice touch to the restaurant. This restaurant would be better if it wasn’t so crowded (like a cafeteria). Or I wouldn’t go on a Saturday night.

I made a reservation for 6 people at 5:00 pm; and table wasn't ready, we were seated after 45 minutes, thanks to a manager that got us a table, if you make a reservation for a specific time you expect to be seated not later than 15 minutes; ambiance noisy not good to have a dinner conversation, drinks and appetizers were good, but not the main entry which was extremely salty, service was good. Two stars overall.

I love live music... but it was way too high that we were not able to have a conversation. The server was very nice but, got very annoyed because we were hesitant on what to order and she did not volunteer any suggestions.. She had taken very long to take our orders than another big wait for our appetizers than for food. I love the ambiance, the wardrobe of the staff and the seating. Parking is very hard since it’s in the mall. Overall, I can say I ate there, but won’t be going back.
