Cuban Sandwich to go back for!

Have only been here for brunch but enjoyed quite a few different dishes. The steak & eggs is delicious. The french toast is pretty big & ideal to share. But my favorite is their cuban sanwiches. It has just the right amount of pork, ham, cheese, garlic & pickle! We opted for the unlimited drinks... read more

I have been to this place 2 times already and the one thing that least impresses me is the seating arrangements. You are penalized for 1. not having a reservation and 2. not having a big enough party to be seating in a normal area. We were 3 people and arrived around 1 pm for brunch. There were so many...

We wanted to got to "Katz" however found the waiting line outside too long to wait in the cold. Macondo was just up the street and packed with patrons. We took a change and got a table, great atmosphere, excellent food and drinks and the service very good and quick!

I came here with a date for Sunday brunch and enjoyed it. The decor is easy on the eyes and the music playlist is awesome! The service was fast and friendly. I had the carne con yuca, which was basically skirt steak with fried egg and yuca fries. They also have an unlimited mimosa option as well for two hours... More

Amazing food and drinks! Great for groups. LOUD!!! I felt myself shouting over to my buddies less than three feet away from me! The music is great - a Latina mix and it feels like you're in a club. So, anyone with a hangover from the night prior ... beware! They have unlimited Bellini's for brunch during an hour or... More

Really good brunch: best huevos rancheros I've ever eaten. Staff are helpful and friendly, albeit slightly disorganized. Would eat here again.

You cannot complain about brunch on a Saturday with endless Mimosas! The waiter was definitely helpful with his suggestions and i can truly say that i had the best burger in my entire life! Instead of fries you get YUCA! It was perfect, my favorite mimosa was the blackberry flavor. For people who are not shy to try new things,... More

We ate here after seeing Queen at Madison Sq Gdns. It was next door to our hotel on EHouston. Staff were friendly. Drinks were good and food was freshly cooked. Tapas plates were a good size. We had 3between us and it was enough though for us. Great Latino/ Cuban vibe and quite a young crowd.
