“Pleasure dining at Albert's Mofongo House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2011

Upon entering, I was greeted with a very happy smile by the Maitre d', which gave me a positive first impression. Then my waitress came over speaking Spanish----I loved it! I needed the practice. I had a scrumptious seafood platter with rice, and for desert, something else that was very Dominican; dulce de naranja (a sweetened orange). The music in the background consisted of jazz, bachata, merengue, and salsa; right up my alley. Upon leaving, the waitress thanked me profusely for coming. My bill was $38, but my tip was well over 20%. She deserved it!
