Went late on a Friday night, thus no wait! Mojitos were perfection....nice and strong! And for the most part, the food was excellent. I had the pernil which was on the Specials menu..very tender, limey, not too dry. My boyfriend had the skirt steak with chimichurri sauce...the portion size was much smaller than we usually have and was slightly charred...but the white rice, black beans and side salad were typical Dominican sides done really well. We also enjoyed the bean dip with fried plantain chips, which was complimentary. Easy on the wallet is right and the service was lovely- from the hostess to the waitress and the busboy!

- A great cachaca would be a plus for the drinks - such as Caipirinha. Leblon cachaca: www.liveloveleblon - (live) Music could be a great addition if space is made available. - Good food (i.e. plantains) Lacam

8:30 on a Saturday, friendly staff, food was fantastic good portions and good prices. Place with filled with a lively crowd 3-4 deep at the bar. Will go back, but suggest more booze in the Passion Colada.
