“Happy in Hialeah”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2009

We are former regulars of the old Molina's across the street from this new one-Friday night, we dined at the new Molina's for the first time-The new place is large, clean, modern with cozy, comfortable booths-very clubby, done in dark greens and browns, new chic lighting, and a lovely long bar area. We had as our server, Orlando-he was gracious, classy, unobstrusive, yet always ready for us if we looked up-We ordered the masas de puerco, Chicken steak, caldo gallego, conch fritters, sangria and a glass of red wine, plus flan and crema catalana for dessert-the 15 dollar large pitcher of sangria needed more wine-it was too sugary and light-the chicken steak was slightly overcooked-other than that, no complaints-prices were the same more or less a dollar or two as at the old place-pork(masa de puerco) was juicy and perfect, moros(rice) superb and fresh, desserts, sublime-creamy and thick! -conch fritters were flavorful but could have used some cilantro as a garnish. We tried a glass of Chilean merlot-it was superb, but at $7.00 a glass in working-class Hialeah? The wine list had the usual outrageous triple mark-ups, typical of ALL American restaurants-When will someone put a decent bottle of $12.00 South American wine on their menu? Especially in HIALEAH! No family(and this IS a family place) should have to be deprived of an affordable bottle of wine to accompany their meal on a weekend night. Our opinion of the new Hialeah Molina's-great food/ambiance/service/lower your wine prices!

“Great Cuban Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2008

We went on Good Friday to eat fried fish and found this place to be excellent. The fish was a whole red snapper that was fried to a perfection. My husband's cod fish was done in a tomato and olive oil light sauce that he found to be incredible.

The ambience is spanish modern. The service was great. The place is new and clean. The whole experince was very good.

Good eatings
