    Very low key spot with good food & great music. I love the outdoor garden vibe the restaurant has. I would dine here again. The servers were very attentive.

    the food was good, everything is a little expensive but good. It was very very loud though. You have to scream the whole time you are talking and you don’t get enough water to be able to have more than a 5 min conversation. You leave with your throat hurting from talking so loudly!

    The food was fantastic and so was the waitstaff. The only thing that wasn’t fantastic was the bathroom situation. There is one bathroom with a partition in it to separate two toilets. Only go in alone or with a close friend. Do not go in with stranger thinking there are two stalls. But overall cute spot with great food! Oxtail, salmon, steak, fried shrimp all amazing!!!!

    Amazing food and vibes, every time I go! This time though the waiter swore he couldn’t bring us bottomless mimosas until he took our food order, then he forgot the tostones but the free shots are always great lol. Can’t wait to go back.

    Food is delicious. My favorite is the grilled chicken breast with yellow rice. Drinks are also good. The beer garden was spacious, clean and has a beautiful setup for taking pictures.

    The food was delicious. The wait staff weren’t very attentive but they were friendly. It took extremely long for our entrees to come out and the restaurant didn’t have many patrons at the time.

    Greetings, The only reason I gave a three star as an “overall review” because I asked during the reservation process for you guys to sing happy birthday to my mom but you guys did not even acknowledge that. But the rest of the expirience was wonderful. Thank you.

    The food, vibe, and staff was all amazing. It was a bit hot inside but then again: it’s currently a heatwave in NYC so one cannot be surprised that inside was also hot 😭. But this is my second time going here and it has become one of my favourite places to go to in Harlem.

    The place was different. I liked the decor. Especially the painting. The staff, friendly but service was slow. The music waaay too loud! The chairs were not at all comfortable. The a/c not cool enough. Lastly, the food was good, but not great! Would recommend to others to try at least once, but don't think I will be returning.

    Good vibes, I enjoyed the drinks and food. The service wasn't the best, the waiter came around every 30 mins- 45 mins. We got the wrong bill, but I am sympathetic and the waiter seemed busy, perhaps they are understaffed.

    I had better expectations of the place. The hostess was rude. The Food wasn’t as good as other reviews mentioned. They said there was a 90 grace period per reservation but the food took for ever to be served. Then for the mimosa we got charged for every adult in the table but 2 of them didn’t even drink.

    The food here is absolutely delicious, perhaps the best in the city but they really need to invest in viable air conditioning. It’s a covered, enclosed outdoor area which is effectively a green house at all times. It’s insufferably hot

    Food was delicious but very pricey. You can get more food and same quality at a mom and pop Spanish restaurant. No liquor license so there goes any drinks. They’re pre made drinks are super sweet and very small drink menu. Looks better in pictures, but definitely not a return to eat kinda place. Was pretty slow when we went and the waitress missed us constantly when it came time to ask for another beer.
