A Casa Fox

A delicious Nicaraguan twist on traditional tapas. The restaurant itself is lovely and the owner friendly and knowledgeable. Be sure to try the grilled squid and the assorted empanadas.

This place could be as good as all the other reviews make out. The food was nice when it arrived, unfortunately that was 1:45 after we sat down. There was one waiter, one person in the kitchen and one person helping with drinks. Could have been for any reason, all I know is that if you are going here you should count the staff before you sit down. 2 waiter and 2 chefs should be your minimum, otherwise go and find another spot to eat. The other downside was the obscenely small portions for what are not cheap prices on the tapas. I think their pricing model is to take a dollar off what it would cost as a app and half the portion. We felt really let down and can only blame the management as the staff who were there were trying their hardest.

A Casa Fox is by far the best Resturant I have ever been to! The food is absolutely magnificent, the service is very good, as soom as my wife and I walked in the chef/owner greeted us and made sure my wife and I were comfortable (we sat on a cushioned bench in front of a toasty fire.) The food is exeptionally good (make sure to try the shrimp or rissoto balls!) The menu is a bit pricey but you have to pay for good food! My wife and I will be coming back alot in the future.

My husband and I were walking around for about 30 minutes looking for a place to eat and low and behold A Casa Fox appeared to us like a Food God :] We looked at the menu from the window and we thought "what the heck, lets see what they are all about." We walked in and we were greeted by the chef/owner with her pleasant smile and warm personality. We talked for minute to get a feel of the place, it was warm, cozy and very inviting. Made me feel like I was in someone's home. I had the Flank Steak Salad with Avocado and Heart of Palm, which I must say, IT WAS DELICIOUS! My husband had a imported beer and the plantain chips with the 3 different salsas. Oh and the empanadas (baked not fried) were sooo good. I'm definitely going back and I'm considering using them for catering my next party. Keep up the good work A Casa Fox!! I would recommend this place to anyone. Oh and the price, I hear alot of complaints about the price and the timing of the food, You have to pay a pretty penny for EXCELLENT food, and ALL the food is made fresh which means it takes a minute or two longer then usual.If you want great, beautiful food with a soul and passion, come to a casa fox

Stumbled upon this happy place and it was packed with what seemed liked regulars (you could see the staff and the Chef/owner greeting everyone with warmth). The food is clean, elegant + scrumptious; i guess an oddity for the LES based on the previous reviews about portions and price......people, we have to pay for good food! If you want lots of food have one of the Clay Pot dinners, if you want to graze, have lots of different tapas (I loved the fried manchego and the garlic shrimp). I will definitely come back and recommend this place HIGHLY!

Food was great, service was good with a cosy ambience, but the place is expensive - Sangria pitchers for $24, small salad portions for $10, and Small Plates (were literally that) at $16 which is what you could end up paying for a real Entree at several good restaurants. That said, if you are in a mood to spend, a nice way to spend the evening.

Either come full or rich because you get VERY little food for VERY much money. I'm talking $2 for each shrimp or bit of beef skewer or croquette. Literally, $2 per bite. It's not in my budget so I wont be back. But it's too bad because the food and sangria, are excellent.
