"Service was good. The evening ambience was very romantic with bolwros and tangos sang live by the very talented Diana Mosquera. The only down side was we waited more than an hour for our food. But when it was there it was amazing! I super recommend the bandeja paisa!"

"This is a BYOB with Colombian cuisine. We went on an arctic, Chiberia evening. It was quiet, but busy. Lovely Empanadas and Arepas and fried Yucca for appetizer. The Chicken soup was huge ( you could share it) and the Parrilladas were delicious. We brought a nice bottle of red wine and it was a perfect paring to the lovely meal. I loved my Flan de Cafe for my Birthday treat."

"We went on a Friday night at 8:00. The place was empty, this should have been our first clue. The service was not good, we waited for a while before we were served any water and before they opened the wine. After taking our order, and bringing the food, they never checked back. Since there were only one or two other tables, they could not have been too busy.
The food was mediocre. The meat was too thin, too much beans used as a filler, sausage overcooked.
After dinner, we were visiting and they turned up the lights and made it clear that they wanted us to leave.
I wouldn't go back."
