“the place to be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

i just love this place!! The atmosphere is just awesome. I went there on Tuesday and had great fun. They had this salsa meringue night with a awesome band. I tried their pesto chicken and it was delicious. The service is good and the people there were nice.

“It's a mall-side restaurant with more character than most mall-side restaurants.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

Came here for a quick lunch and had the croquettes. When on a dutch island, eat like a dutchman.

This is adjacent to a mall, so the ambiance is mall-like, but this restaurant adds a carnival-like feel to it's patio and interior. There was a band setting up for a show later in the day/evening, so the Grand Cafe has more to offer than just the food.

Ours was a light lunch, but the food was indeed good.

“Be prepared to wait”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Went for dinner on a Monday night. Had reservations for 6:00 p.m. Promptly seated on the outdoor patio. 15 minutes later, drinks were finally ordered & brought. Oops - forgot to actually include alcohol in the mixed drink. Had to flag a waiter to fix the problem.

Had to flag another waiter and finally ordered meals. @ 7:05 p.m. finally got 3 salads to finally start eating (oh that's right - Monday nights are "salad" nights)

Food was o.k. Nothing to write home about. Maybe if the service was "acceptable" then the evening would have been more satisfactory.

Bring your own patience, since it's not on the menu!

“good party on wednesdays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Latin music. It's a good place to go with a date. Best on wednesdays because any club opens before Thursdays.

“Mixing drinks, but "forgetting" the Rum.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

The bar lady was cheating by "forgetting" the Rum.
When spoken to she acted that she did not care and walker away.
So: NEVER AGAIN TO THE HEEREN!!!!!!!!!!!
