Apps are awesome. Very good variety. Four apps. were all well shared by a table of four. Skirt steak was perfect and flavorful. Drinks were well poured. Got the Margarita wrong, asked for no salt, listen to the customers needs. Flavored bread with a well seasoned butter/garlic spread. Bread pudding flavored with chocolate and coffee was great. No pressure, a... More

I haven't been here in about 5 years and I was just as thrilled and impressed as I was the first time. The food is truly amazing. Its exciting and new and fresh. Its different than anyplace you will go. We ate at the bar, letting the bartender make suggestions for our meals and he was dead on with his... More

We came out of our way to visit this restaurant as were staying in midtown. We read about this place online and were rather excited to eat there. Cuisine is Southern American which is something we don't get in Scotland, Mexican food is common here but not Bolivian or Venezuelan so were keen to try it. This place is a... More

Prices are too high for such small portions. Most of the menu is essentially tapas! Taste is good but staff was not friendly and slow. It took us 15 min only to order and the restaurant was empty. After two courses each we were all still hungry. Not worth it. There are better places in Hoboken!

If you're hungry, don't go here. You wait an eternity for your food, even appetizers. The menu looks very tempting, and the food is delicious when it arrives. You begin to resent having to pay for this high-priced fare by the end of the night.

Felt right at home (Miami) in this very authentic South American restaurant. The food was better than most we have at home actually, considering Miami is the Capitol of South American! The service was friendly and efficient. Definitely worth a trip out of NYC!!

Located near the hospital. Also owns a high end confectionery spot- Ultramarinos (sic) and Zafra's. Zafra's is a very good tapas spot and this one is much more eclectic.

The food here is very good... favorite apps are the 'sparks', empanadas, and the pizza with ham...favorite entrees by far are the skirt steak and the braised short ribs....Delicious but sometimes the brick oven can smoke up the place... your clothes and jacket will smell when you leave here...

Unique, inventive cuisine that takes a scholarly (and very delicious) approach to Latin American cooking. Service is low-key and friendly and the mojitos are the best I've ever had -- truly handcrafted cocktails. Main portions are large so sampling the smaller portions of the menu and maybe splitting a main course might be the way to go (and that leaves... More

Great Spanish food, tons of menu items to choose from, and a relaxed ambiance. Appetizers are a must.
