Amazing service every time! I have been coming here for close to 4 years for brunches, birthdays and more. Their brunch deal ($15 for 1.5 hours of mimosas) cannot be beat. Food is outstanding as well - we especially loved the cuban sandwich, the empanadas, arepas, and deli fries.
Over all I like this place. I am rating the service neutral because they called to confirm the reservation the day before at 11.30pm!! Additionally, they first tried to seat us at the end of a high table that already had 4 people sitting there because apparently the hald empty restaurant was booked. However, we were able to sit at the bar on the outside, so it was not to loud with the music and people on the inside. The bar service was a bit slow but ok, nothing extraordinary . What is super is their brunch special food is yummi and mimosas are unlimited for $15. The bad thing is it's only 1.5 hour and they are very strickt about it, wgich sucks, it used to be 2 hours, but they stop serving on the dot, they even mentionen that when confirming the reservation. Management should reconsider this, it comes off as ridgid. But I like the place, lovster grill cheese was delish!
Good happy hour
Had the fish bowls (poke bowl) which was incredible. Great fish, great ambiance, great prices.
Obsessed with this spot will forever be a go too! Make sure to try the Bloody Mary
Great drinks for brunch, friendly atmosphere, wait staff friendly and fun.
The Staff at Macando East are super accommodating and extremely nice. We had an excellent time!
Brunch was delicious and the overall atmosphere is fun and lively. However, servers were impatient, and rushed guests through the brunch. Additionally, there was no indication of a "$12 minimum" for food orders (which was only conditional to those ordering bottomless brunch).
Moreover, our server gave us lipstick stained drinking glasses, and did not apologise when we - politely -requested for a cleaner glass. She was rude and hasty with the food service, and approached us 3-4 times to leave the table for the next party, (who had not arrived until much later). I would not anticipate "prepping the next party's table" would take a considerable amount of time, as the table only seated a party of 4 and simply needed to be wiped down.
All in all, tasty brunch options, bright and aesthetically pleasing decor and fun vibe, but service could be better and pricing conditions for brunch could be more explicitly stated on the menu or explained to guests via phone when making the booking ahead of time.
My friend and I went to Macando East around 4PM on a Saturday. They allowed us to sit and have drinks and small tapas. According to their website and business hours, they begin serving dinner at 5 PM. Once 5 o'clock came around, we asked our waitress for a menu and she told us they were not serving dinner at the moment. Eventually, she allowed us to see and order from the menu at 5:40PM. Like what?! I've never experienced such a chaotic mess in the city.
Brussels sprouts - phenomenal.
Our server was very pleasant and when you do bottomless mimosas, they come and refill your glass quite often, so you're sure to get your money's worth. There was miscommunication between our server and a woman who took our order... I don't get why people take orders for tables that aren't theirs but that was the only weird thing. Other than that, delicious, and lovely!
Great food and delicious mojitos. Monday - Friday is the best time to go because they have happy hour from 5:pm-7:pm.
Overall everything was pretty great especially the food!!
Service was terrible. Everybody got their food except one and the waitress didn't even come by often to ask how things were and my friend got his food when everybody was finished with theirs. I can't believe they still demanded gratuity and already included in the check. I will be leaving review on yelp as well. They need some customer service training.
The staff was very nice and it's a nice place to stop for a drink. But I wouldn't come back for food. We ordered the cheeseburger for my nephew which looked like a greasy burger, pork belly tacos and ropa viejo empanadas. The tacos were pretty bland. I liked the freshness of the cucumbers but the pork was rubbery and tasteless. The empanadas were super greasy and the meat was stringy with little flavor. Overall the place is good for a drink with guac and chips but that's as far as i would go.
Good food. Their take on steak & eggs was unorthodox (clue: it comes in a bowl) but delicious. The atmosphere was nice, servers were friendly. We did the $15 unlimited mimosas with brunch. The drinks are not strong but they keep you topped up. They said it's 90min but last call is 15min before the end. That sounds like 75min to me but to be honest I don't think they enforced and we probably went over the time. Would do it again!
absolutely love the food and drinks here. Want a really good dish. Go to Macondos
We wanted to order the whole menu! Our server was helpful with quantities to order, and recommendations for our group. Enjoyed tacos: pork was yummy and tuna in lettuce leaf was a nice twist. Empanadas were also good, patatas bravas were crunchy and just enough spicy. They were out of brussel sprouts, which we wanted to try. Gnocchi surprisingly good!
Sangria was not worth the price for a carafe (mostly ice) - would go with a bottle of wine or cava next time. And we will be back to try the rest of the menu!
Came to Macondo on Saturday for brunch. It wasn't my first time since the food is always good. I usually order the bottomless mimosas for 1.5 hours, but on Saturday I was informed that I'd have to make my last drink order 15 minutes before the end time. In that case, don't advertise bottomless mimosas for 1.5 hours when it's really an hour and change. I just didn't care for that at all.
