Service and food were fabulous. Only complaint was that they did not have enough French press to serve coffee.

The Consulate was amazing! The food was exquisite, the menu options diverse enough to satisfy a wide variety of tastes. I was glad the noise level was pretty low so we were able to actually have a conversation without yelling. And our server was knowledgeable about the menu items and very attentive. Great experience overall. Definitely will be back.

This was my first time dining at The Consulate.....it was wonderful! The cocktails I ordered were crafty while being well balanced and delicious.....just what I was looking for and recommended by my server! My server knew her chefs menu well and her suggestions again matched with what I was in the mood for when it came to a seafood selection! There is variety in the menu and the portions are great for sharing whether it is your first date or out with your best gals....order everyone’s favorite and enjoy sharing your meal together!

We both had the NY strip. It was a very thin steak that had more grizzle than I would expect. I’ve eaten there multiple times and the rotating menu is good for a constant change. I wouldn’t order the steak again and don’t recommend it.

The Consulate
Responded on March 7, 2020

Thank you for the feedback Mike. Please always feel free to mention such an issue to your server. We can and will gladly swap out for another steak. I am forwarding this note to our beef purveyor so we can improve our cuts. Again, thanks for the feedback! It helps us reach perfection!

The food was good, not great. Seemed to be missing flavor. Service and drinks were great as was dessert.

The Consulate
Responded on March 5, 2020

What dish did you order? Typically all of our items are very bold in flavor profiles. It is possible the item got missed with an ingredient. Please, always feel free to speak to your server with a concern. We have had a guest alert us in the past, when an item seemed incorrect ...and they were right! We will gladly make any adjustments and it helps us improve.

We had no idea what Greenland food would be like. No one we knew had ever been to Greenland! The cod fish cakes were wonderful! The smoked salmon crostinis were so flavorful! The blue crab salad was not to be believed it was so good! The Monedas de Oro Trio of mini arepitas was lovely! We love the Consulate and have been there for many countries!

Came with a group of colleagues in town for a conference. The atmosphere is relaxed, yet inviting. We went family-style to try a variety of dishes prior to entrees and everyone raved about the selections. Highly impressed with the menu options for both resident and visa items. Service was prompt. Overall, great price-point for a nice meal. The experience certainly adds value and you'll feel as if you left the country without leaving the city.
