Purchased a Groupon and went here for dinner. Great food, very authentic flavors! A bit on the pricey side, but it is near Dupont Circle so that is expected...ceviche was my least favorite of what we ordered, but the skirt steak and the garlic fries were amazing! Keep in mind that it turns into a dance club at 10pm so... More

On Saturday nights you can enjoy a good reasonably priced meal then have a free Latin dance class and then dance the night away to Latin music downstairs. Great fun friendly accommodating service in pleasant surroundings

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
