What a horrible experience. Took my elderly parents for an early dinner. We ordered steak and fish. Both dishes tasted freezer burn. Food came out cold. Seemed like leftovers from lunch. Charged me dinner prices. Spend your $50 elsewhere. Dont waste your money here. They...More

Nice, festive atmosphere... I ate at this restaurant twice in one week; once alone and once with my wife. On my first visit, I ordered the skirt steak, which was a little chewy, but full of flavor. On the second trip, my wife ordered the...More

I was drawn in because of the ambiance (love hanging lights!) and will come back because of the food, drink and servers. Mini empanadas were amazing, margarita was amazing, bandeja pais was plentiful and delicious... the kids chicken nuggets and fries were also a big...More

This is a fairly new addition to North Bergen and I wasn't sure how it would compete against the chain of Colombian places already established in this area. The restaurant is very spacious and is very nicely decorated in my opinion. Food is delicious and...More

Back in the area from down south visiting my daughter, we had seen the grand opening of the place a couple of months ago and tried it this weekend. The exterior is nicely done, complimentary valet parking (a rarity in this neck of the woods)...More
