This restaurant has been one of my favorite restaurant for years and still is. The food is beyond delicious and the prices are beyond reasonable. I love the decoration and atmosphere and style of the restaurant. I can admit that the place is very loud, your shouting to talk and the service is poor. For a place that serves great food at great prices, they need to hire more waiters that care about their consumers and waiters that speak english but overall this restaurant is worth it!

Pros: The typical Dominican food on their daily menu is always great. They serve a lot of food at reasonable prices e.g. half a chicken w/2 sides for $5, which I have shared w/3 ppl. Their mofongos are great too but I'm personally not a major fan. I'm sure their Mexican food is good but I've yet to try. Cons: They need to update their daily lunch menu time if they're not willing to serve platters like, garlic chicken breast during that period and day. Staff needs to be flexible and meet customers' needs without over charging; expect substitutes on any dish. Music is too loud.

I can't complain about the taste of the food, I love anything and everything I order from Mofongo house, the Chicharon de pollo w madro, the Mofongo w vegetable I mean everything is delicious! The price is reasonable. The service is not the best and they need more skills on Customer Service.

I've been here a few times and I finally had a mofongo that I liked compared to prior occasions when the food was disappointing! I had the mofongo with carne guisada, and it was amazing! As far as the service here, that apparently will never change. They sat us in a very tight spot upstairs were we had to constantly move because we were in the way of the waiters, our server was rude, and seemed annoyed the whole night. After dinner we went to the bar area, and it was super crowded. Definitely don't plan on going again anytime soon...might just do take out!

Ay....I had been wanting to go to La Casa del Mofongo ever since I was probably in the sixth grade when I would see the advertisement/commercials on television. Well I finally went in August and let me tell you, it really wasn't that serious. I am a huge fan of mofongo de camarones (shrimp) so that's what I ordered. First of all, I was not liking the prices on the menu. Pretty much everything was overpriced/expensive, so I definitely wasn't going to get two plates of shrimp mofongo ($21.95 each) for me and boyfriend. So we shared instead one order of shrimp mofongo and one plate of chicken soup ($7.95). The soup was a big portion and delicious! Some of the vegetables were a little hard though (probably undercooked) but for the most part, the taste was awesome. As for the mofongo, I did not like it. There was too much garlic. I mean, I love garlic, but there was too much. It overpowered the taste of the shrimp and the sauce. I brushed my teeth that night, woke up the next morning, and STILL had the taste in my mouth. I honestly think that the reason why they're so overpriced with their mofongo (when it's not even good) is because of the name of the restaurant. I mean, it's the Mofongo House, so obviously they're going to have their mofongos pricey. I have eaten delicious shrimp mofongo back in Puerto Rico for no more than $14 and here, at this Dominican restaurant, it's more expensive and not to my taste. Plus, the service was bad, but that's usually typical to the Dominican restaurants I have gone too, so that wasn't surprising for me at all. My waitress never cleaned the table, took the finished plates back, or even refilled our glasses of water until we left! So our table was stacked with dirty plates during our entire dinner! Trust me, this place is really not that serious. The place is nice, but if you decide to go, make sure you go early! We went at 8 o'clock and made it right before people started to flood into the restaurant! I saw people standing for a little while before they were seated. Overall, try another mofongo spot before coming over here. Now I can say that I've finally been there. I'll probably go back one day (if somebody else pays) just so I can try something else (something non-mofongo) but I'm not going anytime soon.
