  • Best Tortilla Soup I've ever had
  • Try the puerto rican paella. As chef Mario says a mixture of pr and Spain in one dish. Pistachio ice cream also delicious.
  • The standout is the strawberry mojito incorporating 10 Cane rum, muddled strawberries, mint leaves, house-made simple syrup, fresh-squeezed limes, and a splash of soda and sugar.
  • The Chorizo Truffle Mac & Cheese was to die for! Also, the Lechon Asada was incredibly tender and tasty. Don't for get dessert, Ancho Chili Chocolate Flan melt in your mouth with a silky flavors.
  • Jalapeo and Cilantro margarita with an order of guacamole to start. Then tortilla soup. Finally anything from the sea.
  • Pilsen: Shared plates of lollipop lamb chops with pesto and escargot in strawberry garlic butter make it the perfect dinner spot. Served on the patio? Its next level.
  • The standout of the signature cocktail list is the strawberry mojito. As cool and refreshing as it is intoxicating, this fruit-infused sipper has summer written all over it.
  • The three course dinner here features choice of soup or salad, chicken milanesa entree, ancho-chili chocolate cake. Terlato wine pairings are also available.
  • Food and drinks are amazing..but the service killed the entire experience!! Awful service!.

  • Delish! I will return, the Margarita's were devine!
  • Great food.
  • Can we just talk about the appetizers?? Brie pear quesadilla, enchiladas con mole, shrimp and chicken skewers with pia and tomato? WIN. not to mention the plethora of drinks are EXPERTLY mixed :)
  • Chocolate Flan
  • Food was horrible. Way too much ask. Service slow but tentative. I actually feel bad I think they try hard just need to tighten up and provide better service
