Our party of 4 showed up on the early side on a Saturday night in March 2015. We had no reservation, but were met warmly. The host requested that we come back in a half hour, as they were cleaning up from brunch. They took our name. When we came back, a table was waiting. We had a wonderful time. Interesting Latino fusion menu and drinks and wine choices. (The wines appeared to be carefully thought-out, and the Malbec offering, which I ordered, was quite good.) Great, attentive service. Cool decor. The shaker from the bar area was going non-stop, adding to the festiveness of the place. We all took cards on the way out, planning to come back in the future. The manager or perhaps owner or perhaps both made a point of thanking us for our business on the way out.

Hard to Pin this Place Down

Really enjoyed the service and front of the house. Everyone was especially kind. The food was definitely good but some dishes more than others. Recommend the ceviche and ribeye. Not sure though if the quality of the food warrants the prices. Also, the space is a little cramped and it seems as though its not sure what type of place it wants to be. The decor and food are modern, but don't seem to fit the Alphabet City location.

I made a reservation for saturday night at 730 and they confirmed it. I then got a call back later in the day telling me that my reservation was no longer available. The manager who called me sounded like a broken record and was non-sensical in explaining why my reservation was no longer available. Very disappointed.

DONÃ‚Â’T GO! The hostess Laticia was disorganized and extremely rude to us. The food was mediocre at best and pricey. They donÃ‚Â’t take reservations and the restaurant is small and cramped. I wouldnÃ‚Â’t recommend anyone waste their time because you can certainly get better latin food in a city like New York. Once againÃ‚Â…DONÃ‚Â’T GO!
Food and Service Amazing

I had a bunch of yummy appetizers and drinks and loved every single one. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The place is a bit small for large crowds but great for a date. Decor very elegant and romantic.
