The outdoor set up was very comfortable and the overall experience was one of the best we've had dining out since things opened back up for dining outdoors. The food was well priced, generously portioned and the service on point.

Will definitely be back soon!

A truly wonderful experience. My mom and I came here for dinner after a long day of apartment touring. We got a table outside that faced the street, which was perfect on a summer’s night. The octopus was divine, so tender. The muscles were a generous portion, and made to perfection. The side of smashed fingerling potatoes with rosemary is a must. The service was impeccable.

Host was very not accommodating at all for an 8:30 reservation— server was also quite rude when bringing incorrect order yet blaming us.

I’ve eaten here before and remembered the food being delicious - but the zucchini chips were soggy and the meatballs were frankly disgusting. Service was great and vibe is great so maybe something was just off in the kitchen.

I’d say it’s perfect for a dinner for two, even though small groups can fit there as well! Whether it’s a date, catching up with an old friend or bringing a parent out for some quality time - it’s the perfect spot! The music was perfect to hold up a conversation comfortably, it was not too loud or too low. The atmosphere is amazing, the food delicious and got an interesting touch! Have been there three times already for different occasions, and will continue to return!

We had a lovely brunch at Rintintin. Our waiter was so courteous, and really took care of us from the moment we walked in the door. He really went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable throughout our meal. The food was quite good as well. We had the house salad with labne and the fried breakfast potatoes were divine.

Food and atmosphere were great. I ordered the lamb burger on pita and it was amazing. Enough on the menu to provide options for those with dietary limitations. Only qualm was that when we asked for a little more time to look over the menu we were not checked in on again until we flagged down waiter, and it took a bit for the food to show up. Other than that i would definitely go there again.

We arrived to celebrate two birthdays. The restaurant was stiflingly hot. There was an open window but no breeze. We were seated nowhere near a ceiling fan in a back corner. Probably the hottest table in the place. When we asked about the air conditioning, we were told it would have had to be turned on in the morning and that it would take too ling to cool down the space. It was so hot we were unable to enjoy our food, and left without ordering dessert. Later that evening we walked back past the restaurant. The windows were closed, and the air conditioning was turned on. What is up with that? I would not return to this restaurant even though the food was tasty. U cant believe they didn’t think to turn on the air on a 90 degree day.

Love this place. Local atmosphere and good for conversation. A bit off the buzzy scene so it's chill. Usually they play Cuban jazz which is also great for those of us who don't want to listen to top 40 beats

Hands down the worst dining experience in NYC. Service is abominable!! Food was okay. Never got our entrees we left after waiting 90 minutes and hardly anyone was eating; it wasn’t like the kitchen was busy. Not one person said I’m sorry!

Went for my brother's birthday. When we first got there all the CC machines were down and my husband had to walk 4 blocks and back to go to an ATM. By the time we were done, they were back up and running, so that was a waste of him leaving and missing our meal.

Food and drinks were consistently delivered separately, never at one time. So someone was always waiting on a drink or a dish. Potato gnocchi was chewy and overcooked. When we told the waitress at the end, she was annoyed we didn't tell her earlier...which we felt was an unnecessary comment. Zucchini pancakes, a staple, were delicious. Lamb was cooked well. It was good, but I'm not running back there anytime soon.
