Hello, Very tasty food, good drinks, very crowded. Staff was inattentive, my wife asked for water and never got it after we paid our bill, it was like we didnt exist. Still the food was great, very tasty. Shame the staff takes away from what it could be a great dining experience.

We just happened upon this place while on Avenue A desperately looking for cheap drinks and a bite to eat! We were lucky enough to be there on the day they have half priced appetizers, and boy were they delicious. We looked around at other people's plates and they also looked great. I only wish we could have gone back... More

Small and a little crowded but definitely worth it. Staff was very attentive and friendly. We had the Huevos Rancheros and the Lobster Cakes Benedict. The Lobster Cakes were covered in a pineapple-chilpolte sauce that when you took the first bite you thought "manna from heaven". My daughter and I shared and we both loved each other's dishes. This will... More

We used to live in this neighborhood and used to have brunch here almost every weekend. They have a great brunch deal which included coffee, cocktail and entree. My girlfriend was a huge fan of their Eggs Benedict which is made on a corn cake instead of an English muffin. I was a big fan of their steak and eggs.... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant. They didn't take reservations, but we got there at 9:00pm and were seated right away. It was busy but not overly crowded with a fun atmosphere, and a good selection of foods from several Latin American countries. We liked the chicken taquitos!

Like most NYC restaurants, this place doesn't have enough room for all the people who want to eat there. The tables are cramped together, although the atmosphere wasn't ruined by it like some places. We came with a fairly large group for the space, and were easily accomdated. The staff were attentive and friendly, and even assisted in bringing out... More

Very good food, nice atmosphere, good cocktails. My friend and I spend a very nice evening there. Nothing to complain, in contrary, to go back!

We had numerous small plates or tapas to share between the five of us. We particularly liked the albondigas and the Cubano sliders. The drinks were great as was the wine selection. And the price was reasonable. The service was excellent. The only drawback is the noise level on a busy Saturday night is too much.
