    The best chicken, plantains and sangria

    I wandered into Flor de Mayo 6 years ago and have probably eaten there well over 200 times. There are three things to go there for: The rotisserie chicken, the fried sweet plantains and the sangria. There are other things I really like there (arroz verde, tallarines verdes, papas a la arequipena, lomo saltado, calimare with devil sauce - many good things), but the chicken stands out. It is so moist, tender and perfectly seasoned with a spicy jalapeno type dipping sauce on the side. The plantains are straight from heaven. Perfectly caramelized on the outside and soft and sweet on the inside. The sangria is a mixture of wine and triple sec, I think. It's full of fruit, really delicious and a pitcher can put 3 people under the table. True, the atmosphere is utilitarian and the service, while being very good is a bit hasty. But, while service is quick, I have never felt rushed out the door, even if that's where the line is extending.

    A Customer for some 30 years

    Since Flor De Mayo's inception on B'way and 82nd St., some decades ago, to their expansion on the UWS, I have been a very satisfied customer. They have always come thru', whether party- catering to a crowd or delivering for one. My personal favorite part of the menu is the Spanish food section; Camarones Asados, with its beautiful bbq-like sauce, Shredded Beef likewise, Chickenliver w. Green Pepper, always perfectly cooked and sesasoned. Well , you'll sure to have your very own favorites that never disappoints. For my $$; the convenience, their fast and friendly service (inhouse or delivery), great taste of the food and their longevite, I award 5 out 5 stars! ***** A.Heller--A Very Satisfied and Grateful Customer

    OK, but unmemorable

    Food is good but very basic and exceptionally unexciting. Definitely Americanized (read: dumbed down and UNspicy and unflavorful -- that is, boring). Worth a stop if you're in the neighborhood, perhaps. But definitely not worth the trip uptown. Don't misunderstand. There's absolutely nothing bad here. There's also nothing particularly great.

    Gotta get some

    I order from this place once a week, at minimum, and from occasion will visit the venue as well. The peruvian and latin dishes that I have tried were great. The place delivers quickly and comes hot. Nothing really to complain about except for the tight seating at the restaurant (depending on where you are seated.)

    Good Food If You Don't Mind the Rush

    The food was good and substantial, but the servers rushed us to order and rush us to finish up. It would have been a really good experience if the service allowed us to enjoy the food. The waiter came by ever two seconds (literally hovering around the tabel) waiting to take our order, and after he dropped the check, he (and the other waiters) were jumping to pick it up. When I told him that we'd give it to when we were ready, he actually told me that there were other people waiting to sit. It really made us all uncomfortable. But if you like good value and eating quickly, good pick.

    Sangria

    The Peruvian food is uniformly excellent. Try the shrimp soup when it is on special. Most of all however, try the simply amazing sangria, especially on a hot summer day.

    What better chinese/Latin food in NYC?

    I've been going to the Flor de Mayo at 83rd Street for about 3 years. My college friend recommended this fabulous place and I've been hooked to it ever since. My family from out of state has come to visit me and it's a MUST for me to take anyone that comes to eat there. My family loves this place as well as our friends. Price is Perfect, Food is Exquisite, and atmosphere is cozy.
