Went here for mofongo which was good. Service was also good but it felt crowded and the music was very loud. Was hard to have conversations.

When we first arrived 10 min early doors were closed the place opened up at 1 15pm when the emailed stated don't be late and the young lady that opened the door didn't even greet us she opened the door and walked back in we wasn't sure if we should follow. Besides that the server was really nice. Don't think I'll be returning here for Brunch.

My family and I were absolutely unhappy with the manner in which we were attended. The server was rude and lacked personality. We order a round of Caipirinhas one of the “specialty cocktails” we complaint that the drinks were bland and also didn’t have any alcohol. She took all of them from the table with an attitude. Brought us new ones those were even worse the bartender made them with a lot of vodka and tonic water we decided we weren’t going to say anything some of party ordered beers instead others opted for refreshments instead. She never asked how were the drinks clearly ignored our table the entire time. The food was okay but it took a very long time and one person was missing her order for a while. Very disappointed!

Great service from the waitress and hostess. The venue inside was beautifully set up for Valentine’s Day. The food was a little cold when it came over to us but the taste was amazing. Thank you for a great night!

First i want to say they are very accommodating , my server was very good and also the manger comped my daughter her birthday meal cause the wait was a while for the food to come out . But in my opinion the food wasn’t the best . This is my second time here and it was about a 3 year difference . The rice was bland and dry . The empanadas were not good . The steak was dry But maybe it was a off day . Would try again just because of the ambiance and service .

Wonderful restaurant. I loved the ambiance, decor, service, valet. The food was delicious and the menu excellent. Our waiter, Jose, was excellent! I wish I had known the portions were very large and would not have ordered as much food. However, I ate the leftovers the next day and it was just as delicious. I had a great experience and will definitely return.
