It was my first time at La Taza de Oro last night and I will definitely be back. The food was delicious and authentic. The mofongo was very good and so were the pasteleles and sancocho that we had. I am looking to try more items off the menu. If you love listening to salsa as you eat authentic P.R. food this place is for you !

I have been going here for over 10 years. I do not notice any decline in quality or shrinkage of portion size. It is what it always has been. Cafe con Leche and breakfast is reasonable and good. Pollo al Horno and Chuletas are very good with great sauce. Red Beans and yellow rice are also great as is the avocado salad. Soups can be a bit weird and the bread with margarine is not so great. The chicken with macaroni is very good and the service is fast and fun,

I was just there last week with a business associate after not having returned for a few years. I had remembered the food being exceptionally good and the portions quite generous. That is now a thing of the past. The meal I ordered was greasy and the portions way smaller than before. The restaurant looks like it has not seen any type of refursbishment in 30 years. This said, the eatery has a strong following and enjoys a prime location. The success of any restaurant rests on the consistency of quality, service and customer satisfaction, this is basic "Restaurant 101" education guys! There are very few good Puerto Rican places to eat in New York and your place can still make it. Please give the place a makeover, even a simple, inexpensive one, a coat of paint, a new "menu" sign, anything! BUT, please, improve the food and don't be stingy with the portions, if need be, raise the prices a bit, but do not sacrifice your reputation!

Say what you want, Taza de Oro still makes the best roast chicken! It's like grandma used to make (and mine was German!), down to the delicious gravy and crispy skin. Add to that the perfect black beans and white rice, all for about $9, and you're in heaven. Often, after having ordered chicken at some fancy place when I'm fine-dining on an expense account, I think of Taza's chicken and my mouth waters.

It's overpriced...the legendary large portions are a hoax. if you have a decent appetite (i'm 150lbs), you'll need to add an appetizer and desert. the flan is some of the best i've ever tasted. the main dishes are tasty, but you can do better on value for this type of cousine. the service is great if you sit at the counter. the atmosphere is very casual...

Every time I order here I?m very pleased, the portions are enough where you will not be left hungry, the food is great and it?s very hard to get that authentic taste down. This place is HIGHLY recommended in my books.
