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.

The food here is good and is served family style, meaning you order only a couple dishes with large portions and everybody shares. The atmosphere was very trendy and the dishes weren't too expensive, although the drinks are. Fun time overall.

My boyfriend and I go to Chino Latino for happy hour(s) at least once a week. We love that happy hour goes until 7:00 (hard to find). We usually like to sit in the bar at one of the tables. It can get very interesting at times to say the least. We LOVE the mojitos and they are only $5.00.... More

We stopped in here for lunch and a break from the heat. The climate inside was cool and comfortable, but the food was hot, hot, hot. Even the selections that sounded mild were too spicey for my taste. Great cocktails.

I went with my boyfriend and we had never been there before and best date so far! The menu is meant for sharing and the portion sizes are great! The atmosphere was chic, the service was good, and overall you will have an excellent time there. I recommend the Coco Loco and the Jerk Chicken! It was a fabulous experience.

I go to Chino's few times a year. When it opened years ago, this was the place to be in MSP. Many "hip" restaurants has opened since. However, this place still attracts many birthday and bachelor/bachelorette party. This place has good selection of food. For the quality and portion size I would say it is fairly priced. If you are... More
