nothing like eating mofongo at a great location. One thing i can say i was not impressed and the service was average. I would eat there again but the service would deter me from returning.

Do not even bother to enter. After waiting one and half hour, we had to deal with a condescending server who did nothing. We left without food or refund. Again no "manager " to authorize a refund. Yes, this actually happened.

Honestly, we loved this restaurant! We visited Puerto Rico last year and have been craving Mofongo ever since! Our server was amazing and got us detailed directions on how to recreate it at home! We would definitely return here... Lovely community!

I met up with a friend here a few weeks back and tasted the Cream of Plantain soup and added this place to my "To Do" list. Since my wife was busy studying and the reviews I read were mixed I thought I would venture out by myself tonight to see which reviews were more accurate. When I arrived, the... More

They have yet to impress me. The service at lunchtime is super slow. I understand it's spanish food, but when the waitress speaks no English it makes it difficult asking for stuff. Like a napkin or extra dressing. Simple things. More than one occasion they have run out of bread. Not sure how you can eat a sandwich with no... More

Don't guide yourself by the bad reviews. The quality and taste of the food is great and made fresh to order, hence perhaps the slight delay on the order. But is one of the best Puertorican cuisine restaurants in the area. Good ambiance and very clean. Take my word for it.

Food is disgusting. Rice looks dirty. Mofongo has no taste. The side salad is just lettuce with nothing else. The salad was basically a grab from prepackaged spring mix salad - no dressing, no extra, no tomato, no onions, nothing, not even salt or pepper to dress the thing up.The chicken was over cooked with no flavor. The beans were... More
