Terrible food and awful service. Never again.

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.

The food was extremely good. The churrasco, guacamole and ceviche were highlights.

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!
