Chino Latino Ratings and Reviews

Our group of four all had a great time and loved our food. Our friends had never been to Chino Latino and left discussing when they could come back. I find the menu difficult to order from because everything on it is so unique, but then I find once I get my food that you really cannot go wrong. Everything is delicious, and I like that it's so different from other restaurants. We will for sure be back again!

This is our go to place in M'polis. Usually we go in a group of 6 or more because then you can try and share more of the menu.
This time my wife and I went for our anniversary. It was the first time just the two of us went. It was definitely a different feel ... but we found out that Chino Latino is just as.good for a romantic couple's dinner as it is four larger groups.

Marvelous experience! I went here for my 29th Birthday with a party of about 14 people, and we all had a great time. To my surprise, I sat down at the reserved table for my Birthday and the menus all read "Happy Birthday Alyssa!" (Nice touch). Also, the drinks I ordered all came with a sparkler for my Birthday (Another nice touch). The server was excellent; she was on top of everything, and she went above and beyond with my group, offering to take photos and wrapping up a menu for me to take home as a souvenir. I'd highly recommend Chino Latino!

Overall great experience. We were smart enough to make a reservation (there was a huge line as we left) they seated us next to a window so we had great people watching. Everybody around us seemed to be really enjoying themselves. Don't remember the waitresses name but she was awesome. Food was good, drinks were great. Amazing atmosphere and decor. Surprisingly it didn't cost as much as we expected. the girl and I already plan on going back. One of our new favorite date spots. Just make sure to make a reservation!!

There is a seating section on the upper level that is secluded from the nice lighting, conversation, excitement. The tables look like they are pulled from an old diner. You sit next to a curtain that hides high chairs and other hardware overflow. The lights above you are standard white incandescents. It feels gross/secluded/unwanted. If we come back I will refuse to sit in this section but really they should fence it off completely.

It was by far the best experience I've ever had going to a restaurant they treated us with such respect they made sure that we had a good time enjoying ourselves I will highly recommend this place to anybody I will definitely go back there again.

Love the food here - the banana boat chicken is great! The drinks are fun, though pricey. It's pretty loud, so if you want to talk, try to sit downstairs. If you're with anyone hard of hearing, go someplace else. Each large plate is 2.5 - 3 meals for people with pretty big appetites. We got two large plates and one drink and total was $70. A little more than we'd thought, but fine because we had tons of leftovers (our plan). Overall, I like this place for a night out or date night.

Great selection of unique dishes that left us wanting to try almost everything. Ended up sampling 3 different tacos and ordered the 'make your own tacos' dish (can't remember the name...something like macajajete). Everything was delicious 😋 and we will definitely be back)!

Although it was a Thursday and the restaurant wasn't busy, they seated us right by the front door next to two very large groups. Some chairs in our table were basically in the walk way where others were checking in to the restaurant. I felt like because we had children (ages 9-14) that they seated us at a less than ideal location. The server was not friendly nor helpful and acted like I was making up celebrating 3 birthdays. After we put in our dessert order, we waited so long that we finally ended up having to flag the server down. She said, "Oh, didn't my manager tell you there was a mistake with your order." No, the manager didn't tell us, and we should not have had to have been the one to ask.

Some of the servers seem like they'd rather be doing something else. If you can get past that, the food is excellent, had a classic margarita that was very good, the environment is fun (dark and urban and celebratory), the seating is good and there's enough space between tables for private conversations. I would return.

Super loud experience for a teen birthday party. Must go with adventurous eaters and the more the merrier. Food was disappointing. Server was helpful but kitchen was not. Food came in a strange order and everyone didn't have food they wanted to eat at the same time.

Very cool, modern atmosphere and decor. Parts of the restaurant were a little noisy, but downstairs was quieter and good for conversation. The food was very good, but portions were smaller than what we thought they would be. A fun place to go for a birthday or special occasion!

Chino Latino has been one of our favorites. We love going for special events such as birthdays and anniversaries. Tuesday was our anniversary so we were looking to celebrate at a favorite place. We have a few favorites on the menu and while some (like the pineapple and curry shrimp and Jasmine rice) are still on the menu it seemed the menu had changed significantly since our last visit. We get that change is necessary in the industry but unfortunately many of the new items lacked appeal. We tried the Hollywood roll sushi. It was pretty tasteless. We did order the pineapple and curried shrimp and it was just ok. In the past the aroma and seasonings were spot on. This time the shrimp tasted old and the rice seemed to be missing much of its typical wonderful flavor. We tried to temper our experience with past visits. Hey everyone has an off night. But it wasn't that busy our service was just fair. When making reservations and when we were seated we mentioned our anniversary and there was no fanfare as there has been in the past. So with mediocre food, only fair service and prices that are still pretty high for the end product we were disappointed.

This is my second time dining here. My brother came in from out of town and we had such a great time! The service was spectacular. Unfortunately I do not remember my servers name but he was very knowledgeable of the food and drinks. Can't wait to come back!

The food at Chino Latino never fails to impress. Our service was good. Every time I go there, I rave about it the next day to my friends and co-workers. It also has a great ambiance and sets a tone for fun get togethers and special occasions. Keep up the good work!

Always make a reservation, no matter the size of your party! It's a very loud atmosphere, and not too cozy. The food is always outstanding though! Service is okay, took a while to get our check, but they are friendly and welcoming.

There were 6 of us with a 6 o'clock reservation. They put us in a booth and we requested the round table next to us that was also set for 6. They said it was reserved...??? We asked them to please reconsider as we did not fit into the booth well, but they insisted it was reserved for someone else. That round table remained open during our entire meal. We were not happy at all.

Chino Latino is a boisterous affair. Very loud crowd even for a Thursday night. Service was haphazard - took a long time to be seated on arrival. Food came out too quick to enjoy the drinks. Food was pretty good but menu needs more veggie options. However what we had was good.

I had a really fun girls night! I did make reservations though and we ended up sitting in a side room right by the waitress station. Sorta ruined the ambiance of the restaurant but the food and service was great. Would definitely go again

The tables are really too small to eat comfortably. My SO and I went and were sat at a table for 2 (cozy) however when the food arrived (we ordered sushi, empanadas and a large platter to share) there was literally no room to eat. When we asked if we could use the table next to us as no one was sitting there, we were told by the waiter that he "wasn't sure" and he literally never came back. I'm all for cozy with my man, but this was ridiculous. I had a gift certificate for dinner and I wasn't exactly impressed with the taste of the food either. Doubt I'll go back.
