First of all, let me start by saying that I did not dine here but took a salsa class on a Friday night via salsamia.com. They have groups for beginner, intermediate, and expert. It costs about $30 per person for a class, Expect to pay about $10 per alcoholic beverage. While the atmosphere is very festive and the instructors are high-energy, this is not an ideal place to learn to dance salsa in my opinion. Because of the noise and there is a lot of it, it's difficult to hear the instructors and there is NO one-on-one instruction. I noted to my friend that I would not dine here if the goal was to have any conversation at the table, as it's very loud. Again, the food may be great and I love Cuban food, but ambience to me is as important as food quality. Now for those of you who like loud and are accustomed to loud places, crowds, and a party type of atmosphere, then you will probably enjoy yourselves and can disregard my review entirely. But if your goal is to learn salsa and you are a beginner to intermediate, or you would like a restaurant where you do not have to shout to be heard or strain to hear, I would recommend a different venue.
