    Unlimited Sangria @ brunch. Server is aloud to cut you off so it usually caps at 3-4. Don't be fooled tho, these puppies are 20oz of deliciousness and they have a wide variety of whites and reds!

    The food completely changed after almost 3 years. 1st & 2nd times the food was great. Now the only thing good is the bread which you can buy at a Colombian bakery. Also flank is not skirt steak. 😟😔

    Love their grilled octopus tapas. The paella is good for two people to share if you are not too hungry. The bill comes down to around 30-50 per person

    The best brunch in the city!! Really tasty Cuban eats for cheap and free sangria during your meal - and not just red and white! I recommend the Cuban Sandwich and the Fresas sangria. Cheers!

    Book your brunch reservation at least a month in advance. Sangria keeps coming in as long as you're not sloppy and have food on your plate. Visit the nearby dog park after to satisfy your buzz.

    Come here for your next boozy brunch. The vaca frita will not disappoint and the portion is huge! Wash it down with 3-4 glasses of the blanca sangria. Trust me, you'll leave boozy!

    One of the only places in NY where you get bottomless sangria complimentary with your meal. Try the tropical and samba. Also do order the skirt steak with egg. It is delicious!

    Great fresh Mexican food and bottomless sangria! It is strong. They will make you finish one glass before you have the next. The price cannot be beat. Sangria is included in the meal!

    Come for weekend brunch. Delicious food and all you can drink sangria (8 different flavors!) for about $25 each. Make a reservation in advance, this place is very popular!

    Best bottomless brunch deal in town -- make a reservation ages in advance if you want a spot! Delicious food at a great value with amazing service - the trifecta!! A gem.

    Amazing weekend brunch - $15 for an entree and all you can drink sangria. Definitely get there early (they open at noon and get packed quickly)

    Had a great experience here. You do have to make a reservation about a month in advance, but the table was ready and the waiter brought out different bread/bakery samples which was nice.

    One of the best meals I have had in a long time. Everyone is right about the bread - but don't worry it arrives automatically. Try the date appetiser - blew our minds!

    The food was great and the price is right for the amount of food you get. Try their Paella...it's amazing and delicious!

    Came here with a very large group for a birthday party and was not disappointed. Excellent service, excellent food and overall great time. Will definitely be coming back.

    Go for brunch and enjoy complimentary sangria during your meal. Try the Currito Sucio or the Frita Cubana. If you stay too long (or drink too much), they will ask you to leave.

    Try the Vaca Frita Al Caballo - Cuban style skirt steak, Latin pork fried rice, fried egg and avocado. So good.

    It's not truly Cuban food. Really more pan Latin if that's a thing, but it's still amazing. I'd recommend the Harlem Sangria. All of the entries I've tried are terrific as well.

    IF you get here right as they open with a small party they will usually seat you without a brunch reservation on weekends. You can also sit in the lounge without a reservation.

    I miss the larger space, but the intimate atmosphere makes up for it. They bring you your sangria now. No more waiting in line/ silently raging because someone is pouring their sangria wrong.

    Very very good brunch. All you can drink sangria bar comes free with your entree. The Latin Benedict was amazing. Make a reservation, they fill up fast!

    Deal: Latin fusion entrées are roughly $15 and includes unlimited sangria. The drink special lasts until you finish your food. Bonus: It’s located right by Central Park.

    Share appetizers and a pitcher of sangria $42. Ceviche micro and lobster poached then crispy calamari and side of rice and beans. Skip the grilled octopus.

    The Huachinango ceviche, with snapper, mango and cilantro, is light and delicate; conversely, for an appetizer, the Arepa is dense and a meal in itself. Full review link: Read more

    The Dulce appetizer, and Vaca Frita are hands down two of the best dishes on the menu. Eat them Now!!! While tour waiting chew on some sugar cane, from one of there awesome Mojitos!

    Favorite Upper West Side Drunch Spot. Cheap & the sangria keeps flowing throughout the duration of your meal. The food and portions aren't the greatest but cocktails make up for it.

    Had an amazing 25th bday celebration at calle ocho. Amazingly good food and great service. Plus who doesn't love 12 types of sangria?

    The mini bread basket is amazing! And the food was relatively decent/inexpensive ~$18 for an entree and an unlimited variety sangria!

    Atmosphere is ultra swaggy. AYCD sangria is def live!! I recommend the Spanish Harlem. Price was pretty cheap to 35 bucks for a party of two. Can't beat that!

    The best food I've ever had at a place with unlimited drinks. Go early and eat your food slowly for the most sangria for your buck

    Good bread, brunch and sangria! If you don't have a reservation, try sitting at the bar!

    The rolls are delicious and different than any other place. The self serve sangria bar is great, but be prepared to buy a meal if you want it. Cool atmosphere too!

    Pollo Ranchero was delicious. 2nd time here and both have been great. The sangria does not disappoint. Worth the early reservation.

    Try to get a seat by yourself if you can-ridiculously noisy...but...the bread and the unlimited sangria make it worth it to sit Any damn where

    Latin Benedict was delicious. Portions are a little pricey for their size but more than made up for by the very large complimentary sangrias.

    brunch is fun with the complementary sangrias but I think we agreed the food is only sorta tasty and not that impressive

    Come early (before noon) if you don't have reservations. Gallitos (tacos) is a good option for 2 ppl to share an entree

    Get a free glass of sangria when you check in on either yelp or foursquare!

    All the hype around brunch - yea, that's all true. If you can manage to squeeze onto the long wait list, it's definitely worth a trip to the upper west side

    All you can drink sangria is included as part of your brunch. And the brunch options are slammin'. Get a side of maduros and a side of black beans! Heavenly.

    Ordered the "burrito sucio" aka dirty burrito. The portion size was good but it was flavorless and tasted like a pita wrap with just eggs and beans. All of the sangrias were awesome. They were strong!
