We went for a family birthday dinner of my sister and it was great. The food was well made and beautifully presented for very reasonable prices. The restaurant staff was very friendly and accomadating. A great place to go if you can quality latin food in plush surroundings.

i have been to 809 more then 7 times each time I go its a different experience. I really enjoy the food however the taste and menu are always changing. I alway eat the mojo verde shrimp and sometimes I get (6) small shrimp, another time i got (4) big shrimp. Some days the sauce is light green others dark. I recommend this resturant. However I remmond the resturant stay consistent.

Pros: -Sangria was excellent -Tres Leches cake was also good Cons: -Lunch menu was very limited (didn't have the combo-sampler appetizer or the dish where you bbq your own meat on a fire..). -Only provided a menu in spanish -Only a small fraction of the items on the menu were actually available to be ordered. -Aroz con Pollo (Rice and Chicken) had the driest/hardest chicken you've ever had..just couldn't eat it. If you're going to go there, stick to the Sangria or try going at night when perhaps the menu is a bit more comprehensive.

My boyfriend and I went on a dinner date and it was great! We ordered 2 sirloins with 2 sides and an avocado sald, and OMG was that steak good. Not only was the food great, but it was beautifully served as well. Very nice food presentation. This is definitely somewhere I'd recommend. Very impressive. Especially for the inwood area. Great service.

I have eaten at 809 several times and I have only good things to say about it. The food is great and artfully plated, and the service is excellent as well. It may be just a little overpriced... but it is worth it. Moreover if you go on a weekend night, you can go up to the club after dinner at no extra charge and dance (if you're not too stuffed). The atmosphere is laid-back and beautifully decorated, too- I recommend 809 to anyone and everyone.

I usually go out to eat down in Soho or the meatpacking district and have been to many different restaurants. I was a little weary to try something uptown since my last experience wasn't so great. We were sat in the upstairs area (Vip section). All the sheer curtains gave the area a very nice airy and sexy feel. The waitress was very nice and patient with all our orders. I had the ceviche of the day (shrimp and octopus) which was one of the best I have ever had along with the churrasco. The food was very good, the service was attentive, and the pricing was reasonable especially for drinks. I thought this place would be a good for birthday dinners because afterwards the place turns into a club/lounge with a good mix of music. I was pleasantly surprised and would definitely recommend over many others in the area.
