First impression was that of a loud restaurant, but the food took it to another level. I have been back several Times for the Morongo and fried pig chunks. You get used to the music volume.

Awesome service, nice ambiance and their Mofongo is to die for!!!!!! I've tried different dishes and all of them are unique in style and flavor. They take care of you from the moment you walk in and make feel as part of the place.

I visit this restaurant frequently. I love their friendly faces. They're quick to take your order. The live pianist does an amazing job. When it is someone's birthday celebration the entire restaurant starts dancing and singing to their own personalized birthday theme song. I love love the ambience. Very nice!!!

Thank Irene C
