I think what most people need to know with regards to this restaurant is that overall its a good place. I say good because there are a number of things that bring down what could be a wonderful place. The portion sizes are tiny. People have been writing about that for a long time now and the restaurant has still not done anything about it. For the portion sizes the restaurant may seem expensive, but the food itself is absolutely wonderful. Their drinks are wonderful, especially their Mojitos. It's understandable that because they are specialty cocktails they take a long time to make, but it is really disappointing when the reason you don't get your drink quickly is because the bartender has to go and remove glasses from a dining room table to pour your drink into because they've run out (this happens even when the restaurant is relatively empty). I've dined there a number of times, and the waiters and waitresses that take care of us are a charm, there really are no complains about the service. One thing you'll notice if you become a regular is the change in atmosphere when the restaurant owners visit their restaurant (which is usual since they live in StuyTown). Instead of improving it seems everyone tenses up, and you can feel the vibe in every aspect of the restaurant, which makes wonderful nights like the Saturdays when there is a live DJ feel like a business dinner. Speaking of special nights, they have a great array of choices. Monday is all you can eat tacos, Tuesday burritos, Wednesday fajitas, and Saturdays there is a DJ. Even with these events you still should be able to get a table fairly quickly, as long as the host or hostess isn't MIA. If you are looking to have an overall better experience I recommend you either sit outside where it is quieter or at the bar, where the bartenders are sure to entertain you when you spark up a conversation. Give the restaurant a try, it is completely worth it.
Pros: The bar and specialty cocktails; The outdoor seating
Cons: Parking; portion sizes
