    Try the Chef's Steak -it hits the table with an expertly charred crust, the interior marbled & juicy. Served with a smoky salsa verde and caramelized onion-spiked mashed sweet potatoes. Read more

    Those who prefer their beef ground can opt for the pao de quiejo burger, served in a toasty bun and topped with a zesty onion and cilantro pesto like the one you'd be dipping your steak into. Read more

    CV is dishing out awesomely meaty goodness, like a buttermilk-soaked fried chicken rubbed in chiles and served with chipotle honey, and a coffee-rubbed pork shoulder. Read more

    This is a typical gentrification restaurant. fancy stuff like duck tacos are special on paper but not in ur mouth. If you must come here, get the esquite salad (great mint flavor!), steaks are great.

    Latin American influenced but think of it as your go-to neighborhood steak joint. Get the eggplants to start, then the steak (rare for hanger, medium rare for skirt) and share the Mac n cheese.

    great backyard for when the weather is nice, and a glass enclosed patio for the feeling of outdoor dining when the weather isn't so nice

    Great outdoor seating, highly recommend the grilled arepas, langostine and shaved brussels sprouts cesar salad for appetizer – you can’t go wrong with the  wood fire grilled chef’s steak

    incredible combinations from Mexican, Colombian and Brazilian cuisines. the Pão de Queijo Burger is wild! Owners are super welcoming and sweet, watch their kickstarter project on YouTube!

    Was here for brunch. Quinua cake with poached eggs were great. They serve coffee from La Colombe and next time I'm having the chipotle infused vodka made Bloody Mary.

    The Scotch eggs are tiny masterpieces — hardboiled eggs wrapped in sausage and topped with blistered kernels of grilled Mexican-style corn. Read more

    Everythig was delicious. Steak, Brussels sprouts ceaser salad, ceviche, horchata. Place is really beautiful. However, service was sub par. Still well worth a trip!

    Get the grilled chicken or the steak. Perfectly cooked. Try the Chili Wili cocktail if you want a good cocktail with an interesting spicy kick to it

    Everything. The steak: amazing. The drinks: on point. The vibe: unbeatable. If the weather is nice ask to sit on the patio - it's the best in the neighborhood.

    Cozy vibe, esp. on a cold night in the back room. Steaks are affordable and tasty. Get an order of roasted mushrooms to go with yours.

    Hanger steak was delicious with the side of mac and cheese. Atmosphere in the evening is very relaxed.

    Stylishly cozy, the greenhouse is lovely on a summer evening. Excellent food - we loved the grilled baby aubergine and Brooklyn mess dessert.

    Octopus and duck confit tacos were pretty good, the hanger steak was excellent, and the chicken was solid. Wine by the glass was great as well

    Definitely treat yourself to the roast chicken & duck confit tacos. Finish it off with a side of the green beans - they were surprising!

    Sit in the back. The horchata rum is amaze. Helen, usually behind the bar, is super sweet!

    Wanted to love it. Menu reads like food porn, but each dish missing something. Pork, fried chicken, etc should all blow your mind, but all a bit too bland & no sides. Tough competition in this hood.

    Lots of amazing steak on the menu, but if red meat isn't your thing, try a few different appetizers and you'll be happy.

    Amazing courtyard in the back. The burger is very unique with a bun made from yuca & cheese. Surprisingly great!

    Steak is outrageously good. Awesome cocktails, great space, great staff and music. Lamb sliders are overrated.

    If a place puts mexican scotch eggs on the menu you have an obligation to order them. And they don't disappoint here.

    Skip the $64 Lomo steak. Nothing special. Dessert was by far the best thing we had: get the chocolate mousse and tres leche cake & eat them together. Won't come back.

    Food is not good at all, really lazy & uneventful. Servers walk up and say "are you ready?". Wine/beer list is bad. With all of the other Clinton Hill options, why go here? Out of business in a year.
