This was my second time to Chino Latino and they did a good job. Our server was very knowledgable and friendly. Ordered some small plates and shared with husband. The food was tasty and enjoyable. I wouldn't say it was "out of this world". Prices are fair for what you receive. It has a dark atmosphere (making it hard to... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant and I'd highly recommend it. We were in town from New England and had never been there before and we went as a fairly large group (24 of us). The accommodated us on one big table. The service was great. The atmosphere was a little chaotic for my taste but others really liked it. Interesting... More

It was all good, no dislikes other than you have to put up with some noise, it's not a quiet place to eat.

Went with some girls from school and had a great time. Appetizers are not too expensive but the food was a bit much. If you're easily offended I would stay away but really its not too bad. Definitely a dark, loud atmosphere that can be really fun or really bothersome depending on your mood!

In town for a weekend of fun with friends, this place came highly recommended. Was packed at 6pm on a Saturday night. Absolutely suggest a reservation if you actually want a seat. Funky is the best word here. Dark and challenging to read the menu if you are over 30. The noise level from the open floor plan made it... More

The food in this restaurant was excellent and our server was very attentive. The atmosphere is much like a night club and it's extremely loud. We were by a large group that was pretty loud but tolerable and we were glad when they left. Unfortunately, a second large group was seated there and they were so loud that they were... More

Chino Latino has an array of fantastic dishes from around the equator. Every dish I have tried was excellent. The atmosphere is loud and fun, so this is not the restaurant for someone looking to have a quiet, peaceful meal. Go as a group and enjoy your meal family-style.And, don't forget to make a reservation!

We went to Chino Latino for a girls night out. I wish I could remember the name of our waitress. She was just fantastic. I'd consider the restaurant itself average but our server made our experience. There seemed to be a lot going on; with a sushi bar, happy hour, full menu vs apps only etc. The hostess was impatient... More

Although the food is pretty good, the restaurant is dark, loud and overpriced. Perhaps it is meant for a very young crowd that likes to move around in the dark and spend a lot.
