Picked this place up on an earlier walk past. Glad we booked for s Friday night. Vibrant. Great cocktails. First Cuban food and everything was great. I had guac with lobster then churassco steak. Service was friendly but patchy. The manager will want to tighten this up and concentrate on getting drinks and food out rather than free water.

All said. We will definitely be back if in NYC.

Very good drinks at a reasonable price during happy hour, attentive staff and good food. We were advised that the paella was enough for two - true if you order an appetizer which we did so it worked out well. Fresh seafood in the paella.
Will go again. It 's somewhat difficult to hold a conversation as the dining area is small and music is loud, but well worth it especially before a show.

This was our first meal out during our vacation, and it was great! The arroz con pollo was delicious and the serving size was perfect. The steak with the chimichurri was also very good. The restaurant has a fun vibe, and the service was friendly and quick.
