The mofongo is not the best as someone posted; the sauce is way too salty ant it can taste better. The phone staff is horrible. They all have a bad attitude and need to get with the program. Do not go or order from this place, they do not represent Dominican culture or demeanor.

I have been here a few times for take out. Each time I go, the portions get smaller and smaller and the waitress gets more of an attitude each time. I just went for the final time! The food is decent but expect to get ripped off on portions and employees with no personality. The atmosphere is non-existent and it feels small and stuffy. I suggest you try another restaurant on Amsterdam unless you are set on Dominican.

Great place for take-out. As others have noted, it's not that great a venue for eating in. The mofongo and pernil are outstanding.

I had 2 beef empanadas at this place. There was next to zero meat in either of them. Also, the atmosphere was hardly enticing. The take-out looked much better.

Their roasted chicken is the best on the UWS but if you want to eat the same day as your order delivery, go pick it up. Both times I waited over 1.5 hours.

My friends all told me Dominican food is amazing and I must say, it really is. I was walking back from a friend's house and stumbled upon this small restaurant. I thought I might as well try the famous Dominican cuisine and was pleased with everything I tried (which was a lot). The owner Tony was friendly and accommodating. The restaurant was very clean and the decor could have been better but it did have an authentic feel. The waitresses weren't too great and I hear delivery is slow, but the food was completely worth it. The servings were extremely generous and the pricing was more than fair. Best food I've had in a long time!

We had a problem with a previous order, over 1 year ago. We gave them time to get their act together and still have the same problems. We ordered lunch at 12:15pm, to be delivered to our offices in time for a 1:00pm lunch "half hour". By 1:40pm, we were still waiting for someone to correct the order. We ordered maduros- the first time, they were missing from our delivered order. We order and pay for L:ARGE beans - we should've specified color- they shouldv'e asked- we got black instead of red. We called to ask them to correct it - 20 minutes later, we get as a replacement- a small cup of red beans. We call again. One of the 2 ladies taking orders, tells us she sent the replacement without looking at the orginal order! 20 minutes later the correct size beans arrive. Of course, its now too late to eat our rice and beans and we had to make due with a bowl of rice for lunch for the day, which we had eaten as we waited...
