Guess it was a slow day and we were they’re last table because it was quiet. My boyfriend (birthday boy) liked his steak so that was goodness. I got the mushrooms and they were ok but under seasoned and our tostones tasted refried. Cocktails were ok but was hoping for better giving the name of the restaurant. It was not bad just hoped for more, when I made the reservations I wasn’t aware the kitchens closed at 10pm thought it was 11pm since it stated they closed at 12 but it was New Years Day so I should have asked. The place was beautifully set except the bathroom didn’t have hand soap, just hand sanitizer (no bueno). Birthday boy had a good time so it was a somewhat success.

Overall experience was good. The place is beautiful and ambience amazing. The host staff is outstanding. So is the bus staff. Our waiter unfortunately was not the best. But he may have been new. We had a party of 7 so should probably have had a better waiter assigned to our larger party. But we will be back. It’s a great place for social dining. And the food was great. The decor and setting of the restaurant is outstanding. Very comfortable and beautiful.

We had a birthday dinner celebration for my fiancé and everything was amazing. The drinks were great. The food was creative and tasted delicious. The service was top notch! We received complimentary glasses of champagne which were the perfect touch. Will definitely be returning with friends!

My friend and I visited late night (9:30or so) and enjoyed the casual outdoor setting. Drinks were beautiful and yummy. Friend and I shared our small bite dishes. Waitress Anamaria was super sweet and friendly.

First time here, with 3 friends. Loved the ambiance, but were kept waiting 45 minutes past our 7:30 reservation time. When we arrived were told 15-20 minutes, and then that people at “our” table had paid, but no effort seems to have been made to turn over the table after that, or to offer us hospitality. No comped drink or offer to order food at the bar even. When we were seated, it was hard to get server attention to order, then we got drinks but water was poured 20 mins later, and we never got the guac we ordered as a quick starter, but we were billed for it. And we were overcharged for the wine by $5 and had to prove the error from the menu. At that late point we were offered comp dessert, which we declined due to the now late hour.

We enjoyed most of the food, especially the octopus and ceviche and churrasco, although we wanted the main size and got the mini. Cauliflower and broccoli were not very flavorful, however.

Would go back for drinks, maybe not dinner.

The place was very nice to look at and most of the food was good (had to send one dish back), but the service was atrocious, literally the worst service I’ve had in twenty years

Well-prepared small plates, including many vegetarian options, in an airy space with friendly servers and great cocktails.

We had the ceviche, market salad and branzino, all flavorful and delicious. I had the vodka/white cacao cocktail which manages to have the warm tones of the cacao without being too sweet.. yum. The only slight drawback was the service. They were super friendly and tried hard, but didn't seem that knowledgeable about the menu (food and drink), served our main dish before we were done with the small plates and also dropped some cutlery along the way. Once these kinks are worked out, I think this will be a great restaurant.

HOWM Cocina is a gem restaurant in Chelsea area of NYC. It's a Latin Fusion restaurant. The ambiance, service and food/drinks were all excellent.

Think they need to work the kinks out. It is a nice space, both indoor and outdoor settings. The food was quite good, and we tried a lot as there were six of us and we went for the “neighbor share” which included 8 small plates and five large. Ceviche and octopus were very good as were the beets and guacamole. From the large plates, the steak and chicken were very good. Unfortunately service was very slow. I know it is still Covid time and all restaurants are trying to work out the balance. Unfortunately one of our main dishes was not served to us and the bill was presented to us without being served dessert which was included in our “neighbor share”. When we brought this to their attention, they apologized and said the kitchen was closed. There was also a big mix up with our bill. They were accommodating and apologetic about it but it took a lot of explaining at the end of the experience. As I said at the start, the food is definitely worth a visit. They just need to work out the kinks

Food was reallllly good — standout for me was the beet salad. The guacamole was delicious too. My colleagues liked their chicken with guava glaze and the churrasco. Churros for dessert - yum! Sat in the pretty little back courtyard.

Phenomenal food, and the vibe was cozy yet buzzy which was great for our Thursday night dinner. Staff is attentive and knowledgeable about the food and cocktail menus, which was great with some of the unique options, and the pacing of dishes was on point for shareables. Chicken a la Brasa and the octopus are must tries! Definitely a great spot for those who like to try a bit of everything on the menu — tons of bright flavors to explore!
