    Love music too loud for any conversation, starting at 6:30. It ruined an otherwise excellent evening. Maybe have some nights when you start the music at 7:30 or 8?

    Love La Fabrica Central! We live 3 blocks away and have been coming here since they opened. Sunday around 5:30 and they had a live band that was awesome. Food and service always top notch. We got Bunuelos di Bacalao, Chicharrones de Cerdo, Aquacate Salad and Tostones with Lomo Saltado. 💯💯💯

    As is always the case, the food, drinks, and service were AMAZING! Our friends had never been and were very impressed how well were treated by all the staff there. Thanks to Luis, Eli, Beverly, Alex and everyone else for another great meal.

    Very pricey for what it is. Loud. Great service. But >$300 for a couple rounds of tapas for four is insane.

    Very well prepared, delicious food from Latin American cuisines. We were there for a pre-theatre dinner Friday evening; later in the evening it turns into a club, which looked like fun as we were coming out of the theater next door.
