About Macondo West

Macondo is young, fresh and hip. Named after the fictional village in Gabriel García Márquez “One Hundred Years of Solitude”, our Tapería Latina is a magical oasis bursting with West Village energy. You may find "Macondo locals" enjoying a "porron", a fun way of drinking wine poured out of a traditional glass wine pitcher with a spout, raised high above the mouth.
Macondo West pays homage to Latino Street Food, signature Latino Tapas, created with the free spirit of being influenced by flavors and traditions from all over the Spanish-speaking world and yet still respecting its traditional base. Executive Chef Pep takes you on a Culinary Journey into streets of Latin America and stops to pay homage to the crudo scene that defines most of Latin America. A raw bar featuring our Chef Mauro brings you Ceviches with tropical flavors of Lulo, Passionfruit and Grilled Pineapple with Thai Chilies.
Private Dining: Duende, our Cellar Room.

The food is very good and reasonably priced! One minor issue is that they had the AC on full blast, so it was pretty cold. Luckily, we were able to move to the back of the restaurant which was a bit warmer. Overall, we had a good experience here.

We got the unlimited mimosa brunch for 1.5 hours. 3 types of mimosas, which they encourage you to try. Huevos rancheros were our meal of choice and delicious.

Food and service was not good this time or the previous time I was there. Seem's like they are more interested in their guests on the other side of the space in their sister restaurant, Barraca.

Service was even worse. They seemed to be overstaffed yet no one was paying attention to us except to hover to refill the thimble size water glass when I could have just as well have done it myself since the bottle was on the table.

The real kicker was that they were missing simple menu items (arepas and french toast), and when we replaced it with another simple menu item (jamon croquetas & pancakes), they brought out granola instead of pancakes and the croquetas came out pre-frozen, pre-fried reheated and burnt and then re-heated again to room temp.

The food here is so delicious and creatively done so well. Drinks are also tasty. Only thing our waiter looked a little disheveled but was super nice. Could have had our drinks moving to the table a little faster but this doesn't deter me from returning.

Nearly the worst experience ive ever had. Showed up 5 min early for first reservation of the day so they weren't open yet, they wouldn't sit us and we awkwardly stood right outside the (open) front watching them chat among themselves until it was open...

The only other table which was filled during our whole meal was seated nearly 3 inches away from us, so close that we kept bumping into each other in a virtually empty restaurant. But that wasn't a problem for long when the chef refused to prepare one of the party's orders without a sauce so they got up an left.

They than made a mistake on my order (which was quite clear and unambiguous) and when i requested the correct one come out they told me id have to wait 30 minutes. Not eating eggs, the balance of the menu, i was left to sit without a meal.

A side of bacon took three requests after the initial order due to the kitchen being backed up because the sister restaurant which head nearly 15 people in it (our restaurant we were the only party) so i guess that was understandable ....

its a shame because another dining experience there was quite enjoyable.

Our server was attentive. Grateful that they placed us in the back where we had a dining area all to ourselves, away from the noisy birthday brunchers near the front of the restaurant. The ceviche and poké were delicious, and the sangria was just what our group needed.

Do not order the special of the day ever!

The whole night started good and ended up one of our worst dining experiences.

The waiters were slow and kept pouring the water everywhere on the table and we had to ask to get napkins because it was so wet.

We bypassed that because we were having a good time.

We ordered one of their specials, a 2.5 lbs of ribeye and we were it'd be enough for all. Worth $100.

Well guess what? It had 3 tiny potatoes and the ribeye was 8-10 oz maximum with a bone that was almost as long as my arm. We were doubtfounted !!

The chef insisted that that was a 2.5 lbs ribeye. We left hungry and went for pizza.

These people think you are dumb and that you haven't eaten a ribeye before. Insulting.

We are huge fans of the Macondo West happy hour menu, and eat there often However, we were very disappointed that their happy hour ended at 5, instead of the usual 7PM on 5/5, which was not evident on the Open Table page when we reserved our group for 6PM. Alas, we could not afford the oysters we were so looking forward to that day. It would have been appreciated if the restaurant and/or Open Table had let us know of the change.

Among the worst experience at any NYC restaurant (I've been here for 10+ years)

We were the only table that evening, and there were three servers, completely disorganized.
- Drinks unacceptable, tasting like dirty water. Very slow
- Service is among the worst I've ever seen: forgetting orders, need to be reminded several times. Forgetting to clean the table/ change plates, fill glasses with water, dirty dishes, etc
- Food was variable, some orders were OK, others below par: half of my guests did not eat at all
- Ambiance is overall OK, however music selection is quite poor, and freezing A/C was blasting over our table (despite not needed: it was a pretty chilly evening)

Very surprised how such a restaurant could be still around in NYC

Good location with an interesting menu if Latin food. I had the eggs and chorizo with some areas that were really well prepared. The service is a little off, seems we had 3 people coming by and none took ownership of the table. Most notably the place was extremely loud. I don't think a brunch spot has to be that loud. I was literally yelling at the person in front of me. Overall good food but bad ambience.

If you're a large party doing the bottomless brunch, you have to be diligent with your server. They're stringent about the 90 minute time limit, but are slow to refill your glasses.
Other than that, the food is great and we had a great time.

We were seated next to the door on a very cold Saturday night. It was difficult to really enjoy our meal because we were all sitting in jackets, shivering as patrons walked in and out of the restaurant. We asked to move tables, but there weren't any available for 4, only 5 plus, which was frustrating so see open tables in the corner. Since they were unable to move us, they sent us a free carafe of sangria which we greatly appreciated.

Be prepared to wait. Wait for your table. Your drinks at the bar. Your appetizer ordered at the bar (which will show up mid-meal and cold at your table). Then you'll wait some more for your first round of small plates: your second round: oh, and your third. They'll forget an order altogether and then offer one random (clearly mistakenly made) cocktail to your table of six as an apology.

If you want a scene and poor service, this is your joint. Steer clear otherwise. Most disappointing part - the food was actually pretty good. If only the front of house could get their act together.

I was not happy that we had to move from where we were seated...if they had been more organized I would not have gotten comfortable and then been moved to another spot that was much noiser. But the service was attentive and the food was very good. Delicious burger and a yummy flan and churro dessert for two off the brunch menu. Plus you cannot beat the bottomless mimosa deal for 15 bucks. They were gracious enough to give us an extra 15 minutes ( almost 2 hours as opposed to 1.5 hours for the bottomless mimosas). I would return...and try the french toast next time! The guy sitting at a neighboring table had it and it looked DELICIOUS!!!

I had been here many times for brunch, and decided to throw a surprise party here. Not only did they accommodate my party of 14 in the private dining area downstairs, but they made sure the element of a "surprise" party was met with fidelity. The food was delicious, abundant, and flavorful. I'd HIGHLY recommend this place for any type of brunch - parties, casual, formal, and even an intimate brunch date. I absolutely LOVE this place and will certainly be back for many times to come!
