Foursquare Tips

  • The garlic sauce that comes with many dishes is extremely addictive. -Tania Peterson, Top Chef Just Desserts
  • Definitely get the bacon wrapped dates and come early so you don't have to wait for a long time
  • Some favorites from our review: fried sweet plantains ($4.25) and the pepito de carne ($7), French bread stuffed with sauted onions, grilled flank steak, red peppers, tomatoes, and sweet red sauce.
  • Great Latin food at affordable prices.
  • Whatever the dish is with the steak, chicken and sausage -- get it.
  • This casual Venezuelan restaurant serves old-family recipes that blend dishes indigenous to the Andes & Caribbean. Dont leave without trying the torta fluida, a Venezuelan molten dark chocolate cake.
  • I have yet to try a dish I don't like, everything is amazing. I'm a vegetarian and both my meat eating friends and I always leave with happily full bellies.
  • Every week is restaurant week! Appetizer, glass of wine/or beer and main entree for $30, every day! Delicious, flavorful authentic Venezuelan/Nuevo Latino cuisine, nothing compares!
  • Order the salmon special.I've been a dozen times & it's always been on there -I've never been disappointed. It's an amazing blend of flavors.The guava flatbread & the corn appetizer special are great
  • They don't update their schedules online. Walked a mile to get there and it was close. Online schedules don't coincide with reality. Beware!!!
  • Amazing arepas, along with delicious casual Venezuelan food of all kinds. Get the sangria and try to sit on the patio.
  • Their portions are slightly small but everything we tasted was delicious! I'd revisit in a heartbeat.
  • Sangria, ribs with guava bbq sauce, plantains and the guacamole were great. Combine appetizers with a main dish with guac
  • Arepas are delicious. Try the jardinera, awesome. Overall great dinner!
  • 2015 Best South American Restaurant: " baby-back ribs w/ guava BBQ sauce, juicy adobo-criollo chicken w/ malanga gnocchi, & gut-busting plates of shredded beef, rice, beans, & plantains "
  • Grab a seat outside with your La Jardinera arepa, and soak in the view.
  • OMG Arepas? Yes please
  • The tostones are like crack
  • Fantastic Venezuelan food near home.
  • Get the pabelln criollo! The tajadas are great too
