Best Latin Food in Town

The food is AWESOME. The atmosphere is great. The staff is friendly, and the customers are happy. What more do you want? (Oh, and the presentation is phenomenal.) When the weather is warm I love to come down here and feel like I'm on vacation. Sangria! Patricia is a wonderful bartender.

I was brought here by a Columbian friend who proud of the food here. I have never been to Latin America so can't vouch for how authentic, but the food is very good.

The food has so many twist and changes to the REAL Latin flavor that it's almost just like any other American food place, nothing really authentic. The empanadas didn't seem fresh and the Arepa....mmmm lots to wish for. Way overpriced; parking!!!huge issue.

Finally, one evening returning home from a movie I had some how worn her down. Very comfortable setting with great wait staff. Menu is quite varied but certainly not food normally served at... More

My husband and I were with another couple. We heard about the margaritas and I had been there for lunch and dinner with women. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is lively and noisy. Service was good. The valet parking lot was overflowing causing problems on the street adjoining the restaurant. The food was wonderful. We had steaks, salmon and... More

This is my go to place when I miss good food. The staff always bring their A-game and make me proud to be Latino. I Generally get the flank steaks, and am impressed by their consistent excellence.

We've eaten a Brasitas for years.The food has snap and energy, and it's authentic. The Atomosphere is fun and exciting. This is a terrific place to take friends to eat well and have some fun.

Food and service were great. Not the best area of town so I thought it wouldn't be great, but it was!!! A must try if you haven't been there.
