Latin American
Ronero" or a "Maestro Ronero" by definition, is someone who has mastered the art of distilling rum. The menu is meant to take guests on a journey through South America - highlighting flavors from Colombia, Brazil, Peru and Argentina. The space pulls inspiration from the Art Deco era mixed with rustic Colonial to emulate the perfect Latin American backdrop. Refined yet casual, we encourage patrons to stay late as an evening at Ronero never ends right after dinner...

    Wonderful food. Good music. Service was poor. Staff didn’t know much about the menu or bar drinks. Forgot the appetizer and one person in our group got their meal after everyone was nearly finished. They didn’t rush it though so it tasted good.

    My husband and I were invited to a party at Esco Bar which is on the 2nd floor right above Ronero so we decided to make a reservation for dinner. By far one of the best meals we have had in a long time. The drinks, appetizers, main course, and dessert were all delicious! Although there were quite a few people dining the table felt private and romantic. The staff was super friendly and attentive. We had a waitress and at least 3 other members of the wait staff stopped by our table to make sure we had water, drinks and to ask if our food was as ordered. Luis, the manager was awesome and stopped by the table to check on us on several occasions. After dinner, we went upstairs to Esco Bar, the music was great and the bartender was awesome. Prices for meal and drinks are totally reasonable for the quality, ambiance, and attention from the staff. Ronero and Esco Bar are a must for a night of dinner, drinks, and dancing.

    Food was okay. Service was terrible! They need to up their game. I think I paid a lot more for what I got...Service wasn't good at all. Disappointing. The bar may be a good idea. Definitely do not do dinner for a special occasion here.

    The service was extremely slow. We waited 10 minutes for anyone to greet our table. Once we were greeted, we ordered a coffee and a glass of cava which took another 10 minutes. There were only 2 other tables in the restaurant throughout our brunch and it was still that slow. Our waitress rarely checked in on the us. The busboy was more helpful and attentive than her. He got us more coffee, condiments, etc.

    Nice ambiance. Sat at a high table. Hard to move the seats, but that's pretty minor. We ate the empanadas, ceviche, pulpo, patatas, and the lechon with a couple glasses of red wine. The pulpo was the only thing I wasn't sure about. I am a pulpo fan but my preference is to eat it to highlight the pulpo and not hide it with too many sauces. For desert we had the ice cream sandwich. It was literally ice cream in between chocolate covered bread slices. Maybe I wasn't expecting something so literal. Regardless, I would come back for the empanadas and the patatas.

    The food was very good (Poutine was delicious, chicken and waffles was very good and the pimento cheese with it was amazing, monkey bread was just OK). We went for brunch and there was a live guitar player that added to the ambience. They had $15 bottomless mimosas and the server was very attentive with refreshing our classes. Actually, service was fantastic all the way around. I definitely would go back and try dinner as well as the room lounge on the second floor on the weekends.

    Bleh- Spend your money elsewhere The Good: The cocktails were excellent. We had the Hotel Nacional and the Dorado Florido- great. The Bad: Nearly everything else involved with service. Whoever is hiring/training the service staff is really damaging this new restaurant. My wife and I came on a Friday night for date night. At the door, the Maître D' was flat and made us feel not welcomed. Our table was tucked away in the back by our choice, but we didn't get a ton of attention. Our waitress was pleasant, but was covering tables at the very front and very back of the restaurant. She asked us about our drinks which we liked, but failed to check in on the quality of the food. The Lechon was just fried chunks of fat- it was not edible, and I ate the beans only. My wife had the bass which was decent. The goat, cheese and bread was very good and the pulpo was decent as well. Not horrible, but not worth a 138$ meal. We ordered desert, because I ate very little of my entrée. They brought out something that was incorrectly made and then tried to say it was the right thing. It was an ice cream sandwich with no ice cream? One of the food delivery guys just dropped it at the table without a word of explanation- nor spoons. Then they fixed the mistake with a newly made desert that had- you guessed it- ice cream. Finally, the most pleasant busser, a youngish girl, came to fill our waters for the first time at the end of our meal and spilled water on us and the table. We laughed since it was an exclamation point on a terrible experience, and felt bad for the girl, who should maybe be the greeter, but not wielding a pitcher. We were peeved to pay what we did for the meal.

    The food was tasty, but the service was not good. They kept trying to take our unfinished plates of food.. and forgot to put in the order for my entree. And then once they realized they hadn’t put it order in.. it still took over half an hour to get avocado toast. Coffee was delicious, cocktails were tasty, I’d give it one more try

    We sat for 10 minutes before someone even realized our waitress hadn’t been to our table, and then another 5 before she actually came over to take our drink order. She was not very friendly throughout our whole experience. We were not impressed by the food or drinks and actually decided to leave after our drinks and one appetizer due to the poor service and mediocre food/drinks.

    Service was downright terrible. Inattentative wait staff, food came out at all different times, we didn’t have silverware for the 10 min after our entrees came out, drink orders took 20 min or more and the waitress had no interest in refilling our drinks. Food is good, but we won’t be back and don’t recommend. I would be surprised if this place survives on Randolph for much longer.

    Ordered and enjoyed the 2 specials. Shared by the group and was plentiful with a few of the flavorful openers. The deserts were too good to pass up and topped off a great meal. The French Pressed coffee was superb. A little loud but all good as a lot of people enjoying is always a welcome thing. Going back!
