    Nice spot for brunch with a large menu and a good unlimited drink deal! Music is a little loud. Try the sweet plantain omelette with chorizo and ham on the side. Bloody Mary is good too!
  • Chad L.
    The service is despicable. Someone threw up next to our table, the manager offered to take the meals off our hill and 5 minutes later claimed she had no idea what happened
  • Angie J.
    Quaint, intimate and delicious! I like the skirt steak and the mimosa. The sangria was also great.

    DRINKS - Bottomless brunch had a good selection, mimosa, margheritta, bloody mary and etc, but glasses are not clean, just refilled, the glasses that you drink and the bottles

    AMBIANCE - Super tinny, super packed, LOUD, very lound, music was terrible (very loud EDM - isnt this a cuban restaurant?) and tables are all shared between random people

    (Cont)SERVICE - After eating after only 1.5 hours (which was the limit of the bottomless) brunch we got "invited to leave" because they ha md another party coming.

    SERVICE - I understand it was brunch, busy saturday, but still we waited 45 minutes when the hostess said would be 5, and did not even came back to check on us.

    FOOD - Terrible. Looks like a TV Diner, has no real taste, had hair in 2 of the 4 plates we ordered, poached egg is not even poached, steak not cooked.

    The bottomless brunch is AMAZING! It's worth every dollar. Plus they have a champagne mojito... how much better can you get?!

    food tastes great, but the portions are pretty small. not enough seating for large groups, but a nice spot for 2-3 people.

    Food was delicious. Place is tiny though and of course gets incredibly noisy and crowded for brunch

    They refused to accept an expired groupon until after 6pm. I called groupon; they said there is no restriction. I offered to let the restaurant speak to Groupon, but they just got nasty. How terrible.

    The wait is long the space is limited the service is shit. They are more concerned with turning a table then giving you good service or decent food. Never going back.

    If you want to be four people squished into a booth for two and then told "times up!!" after one and a half hours and basically to get out, then definitely come here.

    Waiter was lovely. Manager informed us that we could only split the bill between 2 credit cards! No sign posted about this rule, and our party wasn't alerted beforehand. A bit rude.

    Biggest issue here was they sat 8 of us into 1 small table. We couldn't fit and the waiters kept hitting us when they walked by. Also the music is all over the place and super loud.

    Ropa Vieja was good. Palomia was a flank steak, 1" thick (incorrect) and was not cooked in onions and garlic. It's some sort of Latin, but its not cuban. That said the food was good, just not cuban

    Cuban gold. Go for brunch where $23 gets you an entree and unlimited cocktails. Their recently added Lobster Benedict will have you speaking spanish in no time. Shame the music is on an ipod loop.

    Don't sit outside for brunch around 1pm. The lady upstairs waters her plants and sprays dirt all over your food/clothes! Cortadito is willing to replace all your food/drinks though!
