    still not good

    tried this the day after Brazil lost chances for the World Cup and it was very quiet. OTOH, the food was pretty bad. Tasteless empanadas, dry, overcooked chicken, watery beans, etc. etc. Great location with outdoor tables bordering trees and ivy--maybe someday they'll hire somebody who can cook!

    I don't recommend!

    It's just another tacky venue. Is it a restaurant or a club? Loud music and bad service. The food is okay.

    The first time I went to FC I had a wonderful time. I like the food and love the drinks. The next two times were different. The restaurant was just about empty yet the waiter came and gave us our bill unrequested (we were planning to have dessert) and seemed to hover on the next two occasions. We sent the bill back and continued dining. The waiter next removed an unfinished drink while I went to the bathroom, brought the wrong check. All this in an almost empty restaurant. If you do go, stay at the bar, not the tables

    Nice Place

    Service was Quick and excellent. Food was good. Cute place would go again. The only problem I had was given warm tap water.

    Great Food & Atmosphere!

    I was very pleased when I took a friend to this place for his birthday. Not only is the food fantastic but the atmosphere really makes you appreciate the work they've put into the place. I've never been but they do salsa dancing on certain nights of the week in their patio. What a place! Can't wait to go back.

    Amazing Cuban

    We order delivery from here a few times a month. Both the Cuban and steak sandwiches are amazing. The Cuban (my favorite) is so juicy it makes a bit of a mess but it is so worth it. Love the samba too. I've never eaten at the restaurant but it looks cute when I walk by.

    Big Disappointment

    I hate to be the contrarian, but our experience was entirely different from others here. A friend and I like Cuban food and didn't want to spend much, so this seemed like a good bet. It was a weeknight and there were fewer than 10 patrons in the place, and it had a nice outdoor patio. I ordered the Ropa Vieja after the waitress reeled off a list of specials and talked us into some appetizers (beef empanadas) that weren't very beefy. They got my friend's order wrong and brought him the Vieja dish too, but he said never mind. This dish was served with a scoop of rice and small cup of beans, nothing special, but the Vieja tasted not only unimpressive but strange to both of us. We were more interested in conversation than feasting, so tried to make the best of it, but the overzealous staff kept interrupting, asking how everything was, could they get us some more this, that, etc. By the time we got the bill with its "extras," we realized we could have eaten elsewhere and had a much better meal for the same price or much more cheaply. Won't be going back soon.
