Chino Latino Ratings and Reviews

This was a very pleasant surprise. We were five hours from home and just looking for a good meal. We are so glad we found this place! It was very hard to find, we circled the block three times until we found it, but well worth the time. Better signage would help. I was a little taken back by all the younger patrons when we walked in. I felt we were the oldest people in the place, and I think we were. From the time we entered, we could have not been happier with the people at the door, the bartenders, to our waitress. All took the time to explain how everything worked and to make sure we understood all the menu or cocktail selections. A great group of very respectful workers. Next time we roll into town, you can bet we will be coming back!

Service was great! Our waitress was very good, patient and knowledgeable about the menu. The empanadas de Janeiro were very tasty, I didn't really care for the carnitas tacos, they were dried. I liked the fried plantains!!! The drinks were displayed in fancy glasses and were original. I didn't like that fact that it was too loud and tables were too close to each other.

We initially got there we were seated right away got our water and then it was 25 minutes before anyone came back to see if we wanted something else to drink and order food so we then ordered ate our food and then waited 25 minutes for the bill to come after we said we wanted the bill I appreciate people aren't in a hurry but we had something to do so waiting close to an hour to be seated and for our bill was a little ridiculous

Painfully hip place, you're paying a lot to be surfing the super-trendy scene.
Rather loud, but given the context it was fine.
Food was TERRIFIC.
If you're desperately trying to hook up with someone, this would be a great start to the evening. If you're over 36 &/or married &/or not trying to pretend you're younger than you are...maybe not the best choice.

Food was dynamite, service not so much for the price. We had to ask for water a few times to get it and our table was not cleared the way you'd expect it to be. Either additional training or staff is needed...not sure but we were bummed with the service. Server was super nice but not super amazing at serving.

The restaurant was very loud. Our table was even louder because we were seated next to the restroom, which has the loud noise the Dyson hand dryers and no doors.
There are also very few vegetarian options offered.
No deserts offered or

I came to this restaurant in search of a hot date night and got what I was looking for. The food was divine and the portions were large so we got leftovers for later. Our waitress was very informative and attentive . The one downside was our table felt a little like we were crammed into the corner and it was drafty next to the windows. Overall, a very pleasant evening that I would very soon do again.

We went on a date. The food was not cooked well. Everything very Americanized when it was supposed to be known for their concoction of Asian and Latino food. The atmosphere was very loud and partesque when it's decor is very romantic and intimate. Over priced for actual quality of food. Would not recommend.

Good food variety, modern trendy atmosphere. Noise level was a tricky question in the review as it is noisy, they play music and there is a lot of activity, but all in a good way with energy. Don't expect a nice quite and peaceful atmosphere.

Always a fun atmosphere. However, it was awfully warm so that took away from a level of comfort. But the food was amazing and the service was great. Ideal outing for a group of friends. We shared some appetizers and a few large plates with each other. A perfect way to enjoy a variety of items.

Good service!!! Fast paced with orders, drinks and seating. 4 star only because it was very dark we couldnt reallt see the menu items or what we were eating. Food taste great and love that it is family size portions for sharing!! Drinks are bomb! Waitress is fast and efficient.

The food was great! We were there celebrating my friend's birthday and they had forgotten her meal while we all got ours. Nothing had come out at the same time either. We made reservations, but it took almost 45 minutes for our waiter to ask for our drinks and just as long to get our food order.

This was my second visit within a couple months. The wait staff on both occasions was efficient and friendly. The energy is amazing and just an overall great time and place to catch up with friends over a shared meal.

Great advice from our server on what to order; thoroughly enjoyed the seafood paella, shortrib dish and decadent chocolate cake dessert...Got a little expensive due to a few fancy cocktails, and it's very loud, but it was a great evening.

It was insanely loud. We had a very loud drunk party behind us. But that is what you sign up for when you go to Chino's. Also, the food wasn't that spicy, even though it had a firecracker by it (we got the Thai coconut shrimp).

It was an overall great experience. They customized our menus to say "Happy Birthday, Victoria!" which made it a more personalized experience. Our server was great about getting our food to us as quickly as possible. The food was delicious and portions were just right. Would definitely recommend it.

Although it was a bit pricey, it was a unique experience. Our server was a little overwhelmed but it was within reason and he was nice about it. (we were comped a dessert)
There was no designated area for waiting for a table and it was quite crowded near the host stand.

It was a great experience! The menu is great with a variety of foods! It is nice to share! The service was very good, as well! We were a little disappointed in the beginning, as we were seated right across from a service door to the "dish washing" room or something. It was very busy and no other tables were available. However, the table in back of us became available and we were able to move! This was much better! Thanks for making that change! I would recommend Chino Latino for any occasion! It is a very energetic-festive restaurant!

Was so impressed, went there for my girlfriends birthday just being the two of us and the origanl seating that was given to us wasn't in a prefired location. I asked if it was possible to to get a different spot thinking that being a Friday night wouldn't be possible but to my surprise it was!! Great service with great people, will be back!!

Everything was really good, the food was great and the restaurant decor was beautiful. The only thing that wasn't that great was the service. When my date and I were finished eating we waited 30 minutes until being brought the bill.
