This is a small place maybe 9 tables, make a reservation. Food was delicious and service was great. Ceviche appetizer was fresh, very good. Seafood Paella and stuffed avocado with chicken were also really good.

Javier was excellent. We tried items we had never had before and reviews on individual items were mixed. Entrance is from the side street, so it was a little iffy at first, but once we were seated things were all good. We are not Spanish speakers, and Javier took the time to explain the menu items and answer our questions.

A wonderful experience.
Do not be discouraged by the outside appearance. From the street, this restaurant doesn’t look very appealing but I’m so glad we went. They were very careful with Covid precautions. Everyone had to wait outside until they showed their vaccine cards. Tables were spaced appropriately. Service was attentive, food and drinks were prompt and absolutely delicious. Highly recommend.

My wife and I, had our first date here 12yrs ago. I decided to surprise her to recall that day and made dinner reservations. She was very surprise when we arrived, we sat on the same table and to make things better, our favorite bartender was still working here after all this time. The food was served promptly and perfect. Our server Alejandro, he was on point and keep our table clean, with new silverware and plates with each meal, making this an special evening. Thank you, Waiters, for being the same way after all this time. Make reservations

Everything was delicious, from the Fried Puerto Rican cheese to the Churrasco and garlic shrimp. Caesar salads were easily shareable by 2-3 people. Wonderful service throughout the meal. Positive experience all around.

What a great dinner! Our server, Juan, was very efficient and friendly. The good was delicious! My husband is vegan and Juan has a special vegan sauce for his veggie mofongo. The plantains were yummy!
We will dine here again. We ate early (5pm) and did not wait long for our food at all.

Friendly service. Coconut shrimp tapas were perfect. The avocado salad is big- be warned. Steak mofongo with garlic sauce was tasty but very filling.
Oh yeah- Mojitos are excellent.
Very relaxed atmosphere- no pretension at all.

Best waiter ever! We stumbled upon Waiters on our first night in town for a family vacation and we’re immediately impressed with the safety precautions, service, and quality of our meal. Even with other options available, we opted to eat here again later in the week and Waiters knocked it out of the park again. Will recommend to my colleagues who travel to the area for business as well if they want a good meal in a casual setting.

We set outside so luckily could carry a conversation no problem. The service is very slow. I ordered crab stuffed avocado. Crab was too salty. Coke was flat, they don’t have it in the can or a bottle. My friend had mofongo with steak and that was ok. Overall not impressed with this place and will not be going back
