    Mita's is a unique topas experience in a great way. Service is excellent and the variety of meal types are something you will not find in many restaurants. Chef Salazar puts a nice Latin twist on the dishes. Give it a try.

    Not always a fan of small plates dining, but Mita does it the best. Well paced by the server, who was always on point with his recommendations. Some might feel the space to be too large, but I love that conversation is easy. Food well prepared and the 6 or 7 plates we had were very good.

    IMHO most of the food we ordered was a bit over salted on the top. In the future I will simply ask for the salt to be omitted. Other than my many neurotic personal preferences it was outstanding.

    I went for restaurant week and the three course options were perfectly paired. The food is very fresh and unique and the wine selection impressive. I can't wait to go back to try their other menu options. I recommend the rum cake for dessert.

    Great restaurant week dinner -- salmon ceviche, shrimp with garlic and peppers and a delicious rum cake with grilled peaches dessert. Only problem was that they were so busy servers were stretched -- I had to wait a long time to pay my check. But overall it is a great local place to eat -- I go here often and always enjoy it.

    Ordered Ceviche del dia and the amount of fish provided was not worth it at all. For $19 about 7 fish chunks in liquid. Ordered pan su tomato y Boquenos for $14 and each piece of grilled bread had the smallest sliver of fish. Not worth it. My 4th time here and was pretty disappointed in lack of server attention and food portion for those 2 dishes. Last 2 dishes took an hour to receive as well

    Mita’s had been on my list of places I wanted to try for quite sometime and our experience did not disappoint. The atmosphere was beautiful and the noise level allowed for easy conversation during the meal. We were dinning before a Broadway show and the restaurant kept that in mind and ensured we were out in time for the show. Every dish we had was superb and the flavors perfectly balanced. From the cocktails to the Tapas to the desert everything was perfect. Our waiter was also wonderful! Mita’s provided what might just be the best meal I have ever had.

    Once again, Mita’s and the Salazar restaurant group continue to knock it out of the park. I cannot express how special last night was. From the food to the service, everything and everyone was beyond hospitable. Sending all the love and respect. Thank you, again and again. We couldn’t have possibly asked for a better experience.
