“Great Food, Convenient Location, Excellent Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

My husband and I stopped on a recent Friday evening. The restaurant was not busy, we were greeted and seated quickly. We had the onion soup, paella and hangar steak. The paella was excellent and the steak was seasoned and cooked perfectly! The only drawback was that I really wanted dessert and all they had to offer was flan (which I am not a fan of) and chocolate chip cheesecake. I was hoping for the tres leches cake! The service was friendly and efficient. Can't wait to go back.

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

Visited for dinner last night after reading many great reviews on trip advisor. The four of us split two Tapas (Beef Empanadas and Wild Mushrooms). Both Tapas were very good. For dinner we tried the Mofongo (shrimp) and Paella. Both were very good with an ample amount of shrimp which was cooked just right - moist and not overcooked. The Paella had a good amount of Chorizo to add the right amount of spice and a few mussels. The Mofongo had a nice tomato based sauce with lots of shrimp over a bed of plantans. Overall the food was very good but not exceptional. We also had a reasonably priced bottle of wine (Pinot) and split a couple desserts - chocolate cake and red velvet cheesecake. Again both desserts were very good. Service was prompt and attentive and the atmosphere was great. I would recommend trying this place if in the area (or going to a show at nearby Turning Stone) but I probably wouldn't go out of my way. Definitely a nice and different option outside the casino dinning options.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I and some friends go here every once in a while and love it! The tapas are delish and I crave the Pork shoulder (pernil) all the time.... It's to die for! We are definitely going again!

“Tapas and More!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

Great cuisine from Argentina, Spain,the Caribbean, and some fusion dishes. The tapas are wonderful, and the wine list is great. Tostones, asparagus wrapped in Serrano ham and baked in a philo type dough (yummy - and with a spicy mustard), MOFONGO! The national dish of Puerto Rico, and done really well! Chorizo stuffed mushrooms with spinach and goat cheese - and the list goes on. For those who think anything "latin" means tacos and hot peppers, change your mind!
This place is GREAT!

“A great place to eat off the Thruway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Heading to Vermont, we found ourselves staying overnite on a Tuesday in Verona-Oneida. Trip Advisor told us to eat at Zabroso, but the parking lot was just about empty, which usually sends us elsewhere. We almost drove away, but it was late, so we took a chance. Good fortune for us! Great rating from the Trip Advisor community.

This place gave us great drinks, an adventurous menu, and excellent Latin food. Top-notch service. Not sure what the casino offers, but no way it could be better than Zabroso.
