Went to Rabbit Moon on Saturday night. Recently opened in site of prior Latin restaurant. Nice looking restaurant on the inside. Modern looking. We were the third group sitting when we got there. Wait staff very friendly. The menu is very limited. About 10 or so appetizers and half a dozen different ramen soups. My wife ordered Japanese version of... More

Cienga is one of the best Latin Cuisine's in the area. The food is delicious with a menu with a little something for everyone. A little on the pricey side but you get what you pay for, a totally satisfying dining experience. Host and staff were all pleasant.

Grabbed dinner here with friends and still like the food here. The seafood and empanada sampler has a wide range of flavors. The steak and salad that I ordered and the salmon was delicious. When it is busy, service can be very, very slow since they don't have the wait staff. Normally, I would put that at 3 stars, but... More

A warm late May night dinner here with a friend was enjoyable. We ordered the guacamole and the presentation was so pretty with red beet chips and it was fresh and tasty. The Colombian corn cakes which we had next were good too . Then we had the Entrana skirt steak that was cooked correctly medium rare and was very... More

Excellent drinks and bar service. Dinner was, however, disappointing. The chicken and beef appetizers lacked flavor. The skirt steak entree was ok, but not exciting. The lemon sorbet was too lemony for my taste, but the chocolate sticks were excellent. The bananna chips - warm! - served with drinks were excellent as were the rolls.

My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful evening here. The atmosphere was comfortable and upbeat. The good was excellent. We especially enjoyed the tuna ceviche, quinoa salad (best salad ever, my hubby says), and the steak. Service was a little slow, but very accommodating. We will be back!

Celebrated a family birthday here and on a Thursday evening we were the only table until about 7:00 when 2 other tables came in. The food is just okay and the menu is extremely limited. Skip the desserts.

This had been one of our favorite places to eat. Beautifully elegant decor, helpful and attentive servers, interesting food. This last time, both of our favorite dishes were no longer an option because the new chef had added soy sauce to the recipe (in pernil-pork- and steak chimichurri?) and the grilled octopus was no longer on the menu. Disaster for... More

Creative menu, vibrant place, nice service: this are three ingredients for success and Cienega masters all three. We like to go there with family and friends. My favorite is definitively the ceviche which I never miss to order. A tad pricey but quality does not come cheap.

Went here for dinner on a Tuesday night thinking there was a prix fixe meal, which they don't have anymore. Ordered the Ceviche and empanada sampler, along with the Palmito salad. All were deliciously prepared. My family liked the orange-ginger dressing on the salad.. The samplers were a good way to experience a variety and I enjoyed them all for... More
