Food ok, music too loud

Have been twice once in New Ro and once in White Plains, loved the skirt steak, balance of the food was ok to good but both times left with a headache. Music is so loud that you have to almost shout to speak to the others and very difficult to hear them. Drinks are pretty but over priced and... read more

my guests (10+) and I had dinner there on a Friday night at 8PM. Although the music was good, it was a little too loud for the older (2) guests that were with me. The rest of us thought it was fine. We ordered from the party menu. Everyone loved their dish. Paella, Mofongo, peril, red snapper, and all the... More

So Don Coqui has great food; Empanadas are great, you'll want to try a few, skirt steak (with or without shrimp) is fantastic, but a bit pricey for that cut of meat. Seafood soup and Paella are both excellent, and the Mofongo is also fantastic. Overall, food is great. However, the times that I've been here, the music has been... More

I absolutely love this place. As a foodie as, a grown adults, as a music lover. This place has everything. We stumbled across this restaurant during a trip to New York for a baby shower, and what a great find. The food at this place is bananas. Huge portions, cooked perfectly and reasonably priced. As a foodie , food is... More

I am Puertorican, the food in this place is an offense to Puertorican food. The food tastes like Central American food and I have nothing against their food. But if you claim to serve Puertorican food then don't ofend us who know what it is. Once you walk in even the smell is from other country. The mojito tasted like... More

I went on a Saturday evening about 9:30. I called before to make a reservation but was told reservations were not needed for a party of 2. The wait was about 10-15min. before we had a table. The place is dimly lit with tables all around. Not much space to move around. There was a DJ playing all the latest... More

This Don Coqui went from classy and fun to trashy. Waiting to long to be seated (mind you it was literally empty). When the waiter was gonna sit my party of four there was some type of substance on the table (looked like water) when I asked he simply looked up and said it must've dropped from the ceiling. To...

This restaurant not only serves great Spanish cuisine but also fine seafood and steaks. The steaks and lobster were superb . Very active bar scene.

Great Puerto Rican food, especially the Pernil, the meat was so tender it fell off the bone. I will definitely come again.
