I usually don't like to write a bad review, and always look for a something positive to say, but this was one experience that left a bad taste in my mouth, literally, My husband had a Pina Colada - no rum -- which was tasteless and mostly ice. He said he could get a better slurpy at 7-11. I had the mofongo with chicken, The mofongo was not in a bowl shape but a pyramid, and was gritty, dry and was saved in taste only by the broth served with it on the side. The chicken was like fried pieces of dark meat grizzle, and I have had better at KFC. My husband had shrimp in a chardonnay sauce which was mostly like lemon butter with wine to hide a strange fishy taste. We thought dessert would be better..a brownie with ice cream on top how could you ruin that? The brownie was burnt with a nasty taste and the ice cream was icy like it had been left open in the freezer too long. We ate most of it only because we hate to waste food, but I left most of mine on the plate. We also had mozzarella sticks which tasted like they pretty much came frozen from a box served with a side of jarred tomato sauce, and that was the best part of the meal.
The ambiance was awful as well. Red chairs that were just weird and some red paint on the walls and a gated type fence that made me feel like I was in a prison or something. Some of the tables had folding chairs as you would use with a card table. The artwork was nice though. There was an odd fishy smell as you walked in and garbage in the corner. A perfect spot for one of those TV shows where they come in and fix the place up. I don't even want to know what the kitchen looked like.
We just wanted to get out of there and fast, but when the check came and my husband told the waiter we had the card all ready, he just ignored him and walked away. For the price and the hype, I was very disappointed, but we paid for our meal and left politely.
