Appetizers trumped the main course

I recommend the family style appetizer. The main course was bland to my taste buds. Overall it was a nice evening other than when you felt a bit rushed through dinner by the wait staff.

Every time I go it's a pleasure. I always order the pork roast as they give you a huge portion. I can never eat it all. I also get the mojito. They are very tasty. All you need it one to feel it lol. The service is always great. It is a bit jam packed on weekends so I suggest... More

If you want a decent meal and a party like atmosphere this is the place to go. If you want a more quiet atmosphere try an early dinner

I have been a loyal customer of the original Don Coqui for several years, but I was terrible disappointed yesterday. I understand that a venue has to change from time to time, and Don Coqui has tried to change its essence for a while, first when they open the Queens location, which was nothing more than a wore house. I... More

It was very busy, and the 2nd floor hostess said it would be at least an hour for a table. She said we could order take out at the bar, so we did. After an hour, I decided to walk out. The bartender, who barely speaks English, asked us to stay so she could have it taken care of. A... More

On the plus side, they were able to accommodate our reservation request on short notice for a large group of 12 on a busy Saturday night. The place is a huge warehouse and so it feels spacious -- the tables aren't packed together. Our waiter and the kitchen did a good job -- we got our drinks and food at... More

Wonderful menu too many delicious items to choose from. When we finally decided my husband ended up with the ox tail our daughter had the red snapper and I enjoyed the fish paella. This way we all got to sample. Too bad we are from out of state or we would come here often. We were just leaving when karaoke... More

Don Coqui is a fun place to meet friends and unwind after work. It's also a great place to celebrate. I particularly like to sit at the bar, especially during Happy Hour, and enjoy an appetizer or a full meal. The bartenders are great. The food is very good and plentiful. You won't be disappointed.
