    Carnivores should come here and when they do, they should either get Ropa Vieja for a traditional dish or Gaucho steak if they feel more carnivorous. The maduros and yucca fries here were outstanding.

    ropa vieja is a dream come true. don't be afraid to abandon your lady manners and dump that rice onto your plate, mix it all up, and eat til your plate's spotless. because that's what i did.

    All you can drink brunch - they only serve you a new drink when you are finished with the other one. Food was actually good, I devoured my beef and rice. Not crowded on a Sunday, perf for boozy brunch

    Got the veggie sandwich, loved the gooey goat cheese. The salad besides it was plain and uninteresting though. But + the ambiance and juice options, will come again!

    All of the shareable items are fantastic. Plus, Tuesday & Thursday nights are dancing nights. Phenomenal dancing. Plus, the barstools are drums!

    Possibly the best salsa party left in the city these days - Tuesday nights. Watermelon Caipirinhas are dangerously delicious & fresh! But hurry, it's seasonal.

    Great drinks- try the frozen mojito and the spicy tequila and blackberry margarita. Yummy snacks too!

    Nice outdoor setting but wasn't a huge fan of the Cuban sandwich. Too much pork and not much flavor. Good guacamole

    Chef is either incompetent, vindictive, or both: ordered a steak medium rare, it came medium well. I sent it back, it returned raw. I gave up.

    Absolutely horrible service. We were overcharged. Orders also came out incorrect. When we brought it to the waiter's attention HE SNATCHED the receipt out of my friend's hand and ripped it up.
