Get the "pollo a la brasa" the absolute best chicken you've ever had! I've gone here dozens of times and have always ordered the same thing. Why? Because you don't need to order anything else. I prefer the fried rice on the side, but the sweet fried plantains are so good I get them as an extra side. And if you are planning on drinking, their red wine sangria is the best I've ever had. Top notch all around!

I am from Peru and I can tell you that if you are looking for ceviche mixto, this is not the place to order. I order over the phone and requested ceviche mixto which cost $11. When my food arrived I was very shock to see a small (6") plastic container filled with half onion 2 pieces of lime and 10 pieces of mix seafood. Should I have expectation on the rest of the menu? Just my opinion... good luck with your order.

The food at any of the Flor De Mayo is a step up from the chinese food store fronts popping up all over UWS. Great take out, not great portions, but cooked with experience. I love the chicken with vegetables and white sauce. The curry chicken is pretty good also. I usually stay away from cross ethnic restaurants which tend to be the less of both worlds. I would recommend this place.

And there's a reason for it. The food is great, the people who work here make you feel at home, and the prices are more than reasonable. The NY Times rated this the #1 rotissarie chicken in NYC, and it's justified. Unbelievable taste. The soltado, the pepper steak, the jumbo shrimp with vegetables, the lobster with black bean sauce--I can go on. The lunches are the best bargain in the city, hands down. For about $6.95, you can have a delicious chicken soup (gratis) and a choice of great dishes. I have my table, they know what I want, and its great.

Its a great place to have casual diner. Friendly and prompt service. Food is delicious every time for a good price. I have visited many times and never had a bad experience.

I went here with a group of friends on a Friday night a few weeks ago, and it was pretty packed, so there was a little bit of a wait. But it was delicious!!! I got the lomo saltado, as did 3 of my other friends and it was heaps of food, for a great price. There is no doubt that two of us could have split the one dish, but it was so tasty! One of my friends got the baked chicken which she gobbled down like no other. It's a ton of good food for very good price! I'll def make the trek back here :)

I have had mixed experience with delivery from Flor De Mayo before but thought I'd give them another shot. After 40min without receiving my delivery order I gave a call and was told my order was on it's way. 20min later, I still didn't have my food. When I called back, all I got was an earful of excuses. I understand restaurants get busy, however, not giving any warning that your food will take over an hour to be delivered is unacceptable and without even an apology. If you want to actually eat, I suggest ordering from a different place.
