Ate outside. Food was inventive and very tasty. Would recommend that outside tables have tablecloths to create a more upscale impression to match the food.

To start off, the hostess seemed to have an attitude, when we asked her why our reservation table wasn’t ready. I get that restaurants get busy but as a customer you expect to have your reserved table ready by the time you arrive. When we finally got sat down, we waited 15 minutes to be acknowledge by any of the staff, yet they were circling around other tables. We had another gentleman bring us water and he immediately said “I’m not your waiter”, we asked him to find our waiter but no one came for another 10 minutes. Oscar finally approached our table and started taking our order, we started off with appetizers and drinks but lacked the knowledge of simple drinks such as vodka soda , and a gin martini he looked at us and said I don’t think we have those on the menu, and then said I’ve never heard of those drinks. We understood they were not part of the drink menu but these are classic drinks. He then gave his pad to my friend and asked her to look for the drinks we wanted to order. To make it easier on Oscar we went with 3 vodka sodas. When we get our drinks they were vodka tonics… at this point I didn’t want to have our drinks returned so I stayed with that. 30 minutes later we get our appetizers the Goyza was delicious but the edamame was over cooked very poor quality. No one at this point has come back and offered us water or any other drink. When Oscar came back we ordered drinks again and I asked for water. He brought the drinks this time they were vodka sodas but he forgot to refill our waters. I had to ask him again. I will say that our food was good but despite everything else we weren’t impressed. We hate to be those people but we asked for the manager. Ended up speaking to the Captain who was very kind and attentive but knowing now that he was the captain he also didn’t acknowledge us in the beginning as he was waiting on the table next to us. Overall I was highly disappointed with the service.

We love the unique menu and the great service! We often go for Saturday brunch but wish they had a Sunday brunch as well. They have a decent wine list. I would suggest they change the music which was like pulsating disco and turn it down.

After a shaky start getting seated, despite a reservation, things improved when Victor volunteered to be our server. Ceviche needed more fish, but otherwise food was very good. Victor did a very good job of serving us and the beer was ice cold.

The food is good as quality but the keep using the same sauce for everything. Surprising that for the variety and creativity they only got one sauce for every dish. Big are of opportunity
Second Dining are is ugly, not much needed to make it cozzier like the main dining area

What a disgrace with this restaurant

We showed up on time and they didn’t seat us because apparently they stated the platform didn’t work

There were plenty of open tables and still stated that they were fully booked.

Good morning RubenL, We apologize if you did not have a pleasant experience with us. We strive to always provide our customers with stellar experience. I tried looking up your reservation but we seem to not have one under your name, perhaps it may be under another name?

Good appetizers. Need better selection on white wines. Kraki Maki roll was delicious. Waiter recommended dragon roll... wasn’t good. Too plain...

In general a good experience.

Food is greatly cooked with good service. However celebrating wife’s bday we got very small table even though reservation was made with awareness of her bday. No diet coke available which was hard for me(might not matter to non diet coke drinkers). Good place for freshly cooked food however not recommended for special event.

Very welcoming customer service. Nice and peaceful environment to relax and have conversations. Good music and amazing food. My husband is very picky and I was finally able to convince him to try this place out and he gave it a definite 10. He is Puerto Rican and definitely enjoyed the tostones. We will be frequent visitors.
