Calle Ocho

More festive than a piñata stuffed with a mariachi band and twice as stylish, Calle Ocho’s lively crowd is amped up on Mojitos, Caipirinhas, Sangria and Spanish wine or beer and shows no sign of slowing down. Those not willing or able to holler over the salsa music retire to the two small lounge areas to commiserate. The bar area is a prelude to their Nuevo Latino cuisine in the dining room that will knock your taste buds for a loop. If you’re in need of a quick jump-start, Calle Ocho will get your motor running.

"Outstanding restaurant! The management here is excellent - they went above and beyond generously compensating us for having to wait 20 mins for our table. It was such a nice surprise and they really earned our respect with how it was handled. The food was surprisingly fantastic and we're a group of serious 'foodies', so pleasantly surprised were we! We are all planning to return to our "new favorite neighborhood place". We LOVED this dinner and the entire evening spent there. Many thanks to the entire staff."

"I went here for my boyfriend's birthday. It was his first time, but my second. Calle Ocho exceeded both of our expectations. The food was great, my boyfriend & I split a lot of it. The portions were huge! We ordered the appetizer sampler & 2 main courses along with some drinks. Towards the end of the night, I had put in a request (through OpenTable) to bring out dessert that had either a candle or "Happy Birthday" written on top, they opted for a "Happy Birthday". He was so surprised & embarrassed (he hates surprises hehe). Love this place! We will be returning!!!!"

"We went to celebrate a birthday but literally made a brief mention to our waiter who surprised us at the end of our meal with a slice of cake and a candle. He didn't charge us and we really appreciated the gesture. Great food. Great service. Highly recommend Calle Ocho."

"Calle Ocho reflects the best of Cuba and Cuban cuisine...friendly staff, great sangria and rum drinks, excellent cuban specialties, and a warm, homey ambience. If you are looking for an authentic Cuban experience right here in New York, head to Calle Ocho!"

"This place was a spot back in the day, but alas, it is now just a tourist and old people's attraction playing the greatest hits from a standard Latin menu. Food isn't bad, but it's not good either. It's entirely uninspired, which hits you in the face just looking at the menu. I wanted to like this place, because it's lively, well appointed, and the service is very warm. But it was just so disappointing in food and cocktails that we left after appetizers."

"Best Latin food we ever had! The staff was so nice to us. Food was fantastic and we loved it all. We lost our cell phone and they turned place over to help us find it. Such a nice staff. Loved it!!"

"Came here during restaurant week , and was happy with our experience. The place is very cute and the staff was very friendly. The food was good, from the appetizer to dessert. We didn't feel rushed and felt very welcomed, would definitely recommend to anybody."

"Honestly, our party of 5 was disappointed with the main courses. The appetizers were great. Drinks good, but by the time the main course arrived at least 1/2 hr later than expected we were all disappointed. Most of us remember back in the days when you were on Col. Ave and food was much better. i had the swordfish which was tough and overdone. My friend had the salmon which he said was just ok. someone else had the steak which he described as tough w. only 2 shrimp on top. We were all sorry we choose Calle O because we all remembered it so fondly. i live 1/2 block away and i wish i wanted to go back but i'm not sure i will. too bad!!"

"My fiancé had the paella. He loved it. I ordered from the restaurant week menu. Decent choices. My appetizer(poder andino, I believe was the name) was big, flavors okay. Main course, risotto wasn't creamy enough and under al dente. The steak was delicious. As for dessert, the cake tasted a bit stale. Ice cream was good, but I doubt they make it in house. Sangria was okay."

"I called to check if they were going to be open because of the snowstorm and they told me "Absolutely! The sangria will be flowing!" Great start to the day. When we arrived, they brought us our bread and asked for our sangria drinks almost immediately, and were great about coming by to get our sangria drinks when we were close to being done. Even after we were done eating, the server still came by and offered us one last drink before the restaurant closed early due to the snowstorm. The food was amazing as always, and the servers were so friendly! Best place for boozy brunch everrrrrrrrrrr"

"Went for Restaurant Week. They took a while to seat us but after that the service was impeccable. The food was delicious and the portions were a good size. We were so full by dessert we couldn't finish it! Drinks were big, too. Would definitely return (though might wait until next restaurant week since the prices otherwise are pretty steep)."
