“Awful.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

Tried this place out tonight. The food would have been hard pressed to have been any worse. The fried plantains were dry and bland. The Cuban pork sandwich was dry and bland. My girlfriend got a tuna sandwich and said it tasted like canned tuna and was as dry as you'd expect a drained can of tuna to be.

To boot, the outdoor seating area had a distinct smell of sewage from somewhere in the street or something. Not really their fault, but it was present nonetheless.

The service was so so. The atmosphere would have been great if it weren't for that sewage smell wafting in.

“Great new spot for good food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

Stopped in for a quick bite before heading to the theatre. Didn't have much time, no problem. Excellent atmosphere, great menu and surprised to find a full bar. I love the Bongo bar stools, we'll go back for Fri/Sat "Nightclub".
