The food is hearty and rich in exotic flavors at this Upper Westside hangout. The waiters are laidback and can be very entertaining. They specialize in Peruvian dishes with a Chinese slant so be ready for some exotic flavors. I order the shreeded beef combo all the time and have never been disappointed. If you want a quiet table then I recommend the tables near the front windows. A great place to take your date.

Everything in that restaurant is great and the food is delicious.

I have been going to this place for many years but since it moved to Amsterdam it appears to have improved. I'm not a veggie person but I like their many excellent choices. Yuca steamed with tons of garlic will keep vampires away for a lifetime. The Avocado salad is refreshing and the sweet plantains stick to your ribs. When I do have the chicken it is usually with some salsa verde which is not on the menu but you have to ask for it. The food is not as hot as implied but it is spiced excellently. I am wild about the diplomate pudding with the samll pieces of fruit. And although I know it comes out of a can I can not resist the guava shells with cheese. The kitchen is able to handle lots of guests at once as I observed on Father's Day. And their bar tender looked like he was liquor dispensing locomotive. The staff is pleasant and helpful but somethimes things get lost in tranlation. But, all in all it is worth the trip up to Amsterdam from the West Village (where I have a Cuban/Chinese place 3 blocks away).

We were only in NYC for the day, visiting cousins who had sublet an apartment for a month long visit. They had found the neighborhood restaurant Flor de Mayo and couldn't wait to take us there for dinner. Having had lunch just a few blocks away at Isabellas, they warned us that this was entirely different. I'll say! The food was better, the service friendlier, and the value!!! Best chicken we've had anywhere, and at a better price than supermarket prepared take-home. We've never had our orders come out of the kitchen as quickly as they did here, perfectly prepared. Even the mixed drinks were good. We will try to get back as soon as we can.

We've been going to Flor de Mayo since we began dating 17 years ago. The food is to die for as is the service. Their signature drink, "The Nutcracker", will have you very happy after the first one!! The food is awesome. Their tostones are always perfect - never greasy. Oh their pork chops are out of this world. The owner, Felipe, is a great host, as are all the waiters. A fun place to bring the family, your friends and co-workers.

I'm a regular at Flor De Mayo at 101st Street & Broadway. I met star actor Roy Schider(From the famous movie "Jaws") and a million other movies he made. Also other Directors and Producers in the restarurant. The food is wonderful and fast service and the Chicken is to die for. I love it. I am having a "Sex and the City" finalle party and ordering out from FLor De Mayo tonight.
