The food is pretty good, considering it's not one of your mom and pop restaurants where you go to get food that taste closest to your grandmothers. The service is another story from being given the run around on how long you may have to wait and not getting a wait time to the manager having a poor attitude, a server telling you watch your back instead of excuse me and lastly when asked how was your experience and you saying not good and getting a response of "I know you do." All I can is good luck with the service.

The pernil (roast pork shoulder) is the size of a football and crispy/delicious. I love this place!

I love this place because of it's location. There is no restaurant like this in midtown. Food is great, I had a little problem with the service but they are getting better. This was my third time there and I keep loving it!!! Try the octopus salad, empanadas, mofongo and the fish was delicious!! everything great!!! Two thumbs up!!!

Finally, great food from the islands (Puerto Rico, Republica Dominicana & Cuba). Although most of the food is considered "traditional Puerto Rican", the other islands make some variation of the same food. Try the Lobster Asopao......best this side of San Juan! In fact......all the food is great. Service needs a little improvement, but the delicious food makes up for it. To Annon : This is not food from Central America. Nor was the fomer Jimmy's a lounge. Long bar and, different, great food, yes!

Great food, fun atmosphere, it's not too expensive. Great experience over all. The skirt steak with the rice is amazing!! and its only 12 bucks...

Finally a Central American restaurant in midtown. No more heading all the way to Spanish Harlem for some quality Puerto Rican food, this place truly delivers familiar dishes like Mufongo, and whole legs of pork slowly cooked. The dishes aren't large but very filling and the service is efficient and friendly. The newly renovated spaces (it used to be a lounge and it shows) looks great, and may even be a good place to grab a drink and an appetizer at the bar. In my book, a solid and respectable B+!
