We went early; 5:30 on a Friday because we had theatre tickets so the restaurant was empty. Strange atmosphere with mannequins, but the service was very good...obviously. The food was delicious. The beef empanadas were the table favorites. The Bolivian chicken stew was wonderfully moist with savory spices. The homemade guac was as good as my homemade. The sangria had... More

For some Latin flavor, this is the place to visit. It's in a really nice place within the more nightlife area of DC. The place is nicely decorated. We came in around 9...free salsa lessons in the lower level. Mango Mojito is good and the SoCo with cranberry was strong. Been here a few minutes... Nice vibe.

We're fans of this place. The pork dishes can't be beat and the nachos are the best in the city. It's a little rundown but definitely has a Cuba-embargo vibe to it. Service is a little meh - they rush you a bit and aren't all that friendly. But overall it's a great break from the DC usual, and awesome... More

Cafe Citron serves pretty good drinks, they have happy hour specials and on Mondays they haveall you can drink cocktails for an hour for $9 (there is a specific menu from this offer, no high end spirits). The food is not too bad, I have been there for lunch several times. At night and weekends the restaurant turns into a... More

In a city that is spoilt for music venues (including Latin bars), Citron is way up there. Located just off Dupont Circle, it is a restaurant during the day and early evening and then turns into a Latin club on weekends. The atmosphere is absolutely great, with a very mixed crowd in every respect, but all are there to have... More

I love this place. It has a unique style and personality, the bar area is quite lively. The restaurant is very good. I ordered Venezuelan empanadas and platanos. Now being from the Dominican Republic, I tend to be a snob when it comes to plantains. Not only was I not disappointed, these were in fact, the best plantains I have... More

Me and my friends always come here. Either for the Spanish music or the food. The Venezuelan dishes are amazing, especially the Empanadas. Also, the whole atmosphere and the night life is pretty cool. What kind of sucks is the small space. There's barely space to dance because it gets too crowded way too quickly. But overall, its a must... More
