    One of the best surprises. Delicious chunks of swordfish with chips appetizer that you can get with guacamole for $17, and huaraches filet mignon was delicious and great portion!
  • Amanda D.
    Great service, friendly staff and absolutely delicious meals set to satisfy any craving. Just a short walk away from Midtowns greatest assets. This place has a wonderful ambience!

    For a limited time, Pompano's popsicles accompanied by a shot sound like the ultimate summertime dream. Pick from a Frozen Margarita or the Mezcal. The perfect way to cool down and TURN UP. Read more

    Pampano does an excellent Guacamole with warm chips, and although brunch entrees are across the board, it's well worth the stop for the laid back ambiance.

    Glad my friend introduced me to this find for midtown lunch. Inexpensive and fish tacos are delish. Skip the chicken.

    For starters, I recommend the amazing swordfish. As an entrée, the Bacalao Negro is just absolutely, incredibly, unforgettably FANTASTIC. The kind of dish that you will remember years from now.

    Hottest habanero salsa on the planet. Also the crunchiest chips. Unless you have a soundproof helmet, eating them in the office is gonna turn some (less-fortunate) heads.
