Arrived with a party of 10, sat down and got a strange family style menu. When we asked for the regular menu, they told us parties of 10 or more can not order from the regular menu. Talked to manager who then scolded us because they had a hard time confirming the reservation with us that day. That apparently is when they tell you that you will be ordering from a different menu. Anyway, we got the regular menu, ordered our food and then the mistakes began. Drink orders messed up, food not getting to the table at the same time. One person eating, one person finished, etc. Small orders, not enough food for the price. Brisket tacos very fatty. carne asado tacos flat no seasoning, lechon tacos salty and overseasoned. Not what it used to be! Next time I will go to cascabel.

Food was great but portions too small for being so expensive! I think they need to increase meal sizes.

I don't know why this owner plays games with the tables. Even though the restaurant is empty, he always puts you in the worst possible table. It's a shame because the food is actually decent here so I am willing to pay the high prices. If he cheers up a bit and they use the air conditioner, I do not mind spending my hard earned money here! Cheer up man.

In the winter, it's way too hot in the back room. I am not sure why they overheat the place, but anyone in the business knows that people eat and drink more when it's on the cooler side. With that aside, the food quality is good, but we always leave hungry. The portions are so small here, it's ridiculous. They get smaller and smaller. The quality of the chicken was good, but I do have to say the beef and brisket had way too much fat on them. I would recommend coming here only if you do not mind spending a lot of money to sweat and leave hungry. Buena Suerte!

Walked in to eat at bar. Two seats available. I was told they were being held. Waited. Waited. No one came in. Finally given the seat to where all the seats around finished and paid. Not sure who they were holding seats for. Was also moved from ceviche bar once so a couple could be accommodated. Can't stand the manager here he pleaded with me to move. Not a good spot to go alone. Cascabel more welcoming

Took a chance on the positive reviews here. I had Carne Asade for $27 that had meat that tasted like what you get from Gristede's if you know what I mean. I can understand if it was $18 or something like that but not at that price. That being said, the chips, salsa and Margarita was terrific.

This place is my new favorite on the upper east side. The ceviches are really delicious and I love the vegetarian paella. They took the eggplant off the menu, which made me cry, but I guess I'll just have to try something new. Atmosphere is lovely, service was very accommodating and friendly, and it's not outrageously expensive. Many thumbs up!!
