Usually I don’t like to frequent fine Spanish dining. It’s not the same as home made. BUT this place nailed it. From the ceviche to the tres leches cake. My Puerto Rican self was in heaven! Will be back to sit inside and enjoy the indoor ambiance and maybe a little dancing.

Very cool place - not really Tapas but good nonetheless. A little concerened as the told us the mask policy but they did not enforce it especially with one guest in particular who walked through the dining room several time no mask

Was looking forward to a fabulous date night but unfortunately everything was horrible. Was seated at a small table facing the constant open and closing kitchen doors. Was offered glass of water by manager as no waiter arrived. We put in our drink order only to wait too long for the wrong order. The coconut in the mijitos and margaritas was bit over powering. Appetizers were just OK. The dinner wasn’t any better. Had to change my dinner order 3 times as dishes were no longer available. Had to most horrible garlic taste in my mouth.

La Fabrica is such a vibe. The music is great. Unfortunately, the service was the worst thing I’ve ever experienced. Our waiter came to our table a total of two times. Our drinks took at least 10 minutes. The food came out before our drinks. It’s a shame because the place is awesome. I really want to come back but the service was so bad, not sure if I will consider it.

Eating outside in the Fabrica courtyard was a treat on this warmer October day.
And the outdoor heaters we a bonus, keeping us toasty.

The food is the star and the Puerto Rican inspired dishes like Cerviche and Fisherman's Rice were delicious. The fried Plantains are a must. Yummy dipped into any of the sauces.

overall it was pretty good - we sat outside in their very cute lounge area, nice plants/lights. wish there was some music on the patio but there was some inside that we could kinda. the drinks legit took 20 minutes. the food came out faster than the drinks? however the drinks were well made, the food was good. our servers were very nice. we only went for apps so can't speak on the entrees. i think this would be fun to go to during the summer and just to chill at.

First time dining here and I thought the food was very good. However, our reservation was at 8:30pm and they did not take our order until 9pm, after we had flagged someone down. It was a group of three of us, and the waitress said we only had an hour and a half to dine. My only critique would have to be with the ceviche. There was too much lime juice and red onions and not enough fish. The shrimp with rice was delicious. Very flavorful.

Very disappointed in the food. With apps, main course & desserts. For it being Caribbean with a Puerto Rican chef, I must say that the food had NO taste whatsoever. Our waitress however was attentive and understanding to our disappointment. The desserts were on the house but we didn’t even finish them. smh. Again, the service was good, our drinks were ok and the ambiance was good but i wouldn’t recommend this restaurant.

The Terrace is a delight. They turned down the music so that it didn’t interfere with conversation. The wait staff was absolutely the best and the food was delicious. I’ll be back.

Awesome! But we sat in the patio near the sidewalk and there were more than a few people (some homeless, which is not the issue) right in front of the tables who were smoking and were loitering and loud. It wasn’t so bad nor worth it in this tough time to complain to the staff to move us but the wait staff could plainly see (and smell) all of this. Next time we’ll ask to sit towards the back of the patio but this is feedback for management. Delicious food so we hope to be back.

We had a great experience on their outdoor patio. The mojito was amazing- I opted to have blackberry flavored. And I have to say, their flan was the best damn flan I’ve ever had.
Even in COVID-19 times, I felt very safe eating outside. I can’t wait to go back.
