Socially distanced, hand sanitizer on every table. Servers wearing masks. The greeting at the door also wearing masks and protective screens throughout without being intrusive. The 1/2 price beef empanadas and Caribbean wings were so good. Thank you Lina my server for everything. I'll be back sooner than later!

Cuban sandwich was great.
The margherita was eh.
The mojito was nice. Minty.

The waitstaff was stretched a little thin, but the service was good given the situation and our waiter was funny and helpful.

Overall a great experience

The food was quick and tasted ok but with a few too many order screw ups and frozen guacamole, I’m left to think the reviews are outdated.

Restaurant was dirty, it took 10 minutes just for the waitress to come over. Food was bland, the basic rice wasn’t cooked evenly. I couldn’t wait to leave.

Celebrated my daughter’s 18th birthday here and a bit apprehensive because of COVID. The check in was seamless, theirs was no wait time to be seated(on a Friday night). Our food came quickly and was delicious!
We had empanadas, tostones, maduros for appetizers that we ordered doubles of. Entrees included a
shrimp, pork, steak and chicken and everyone enjoyed their meals. Would definitely recommend!

We tried ordering dessert twice and never received it. Server would forget to get our drinks and we would have to wave him down every single time to get another round of beverages. I went to the bathroom and caught our server sitting by the bar area.
