Cafe Citron: what do users think?


Ed: Good vibe and good food. Definitely a place I will visit again, staff is friendly and music is great. After 9:30 pm the vibes gets better. Recommended

Amanda Blake: Clubby atmosphere with GREAT Latin music, amazing food, killer happy hour deals, and excellent service! The Latin hot dogs and beef arepa are both fantastic and a steal (2 hot dogs for $8 in THIS town??), plus happy hour is every night from 6 to 8. We were there pretty early for just dinner, but it would be an epic dance spot later in the night. 10/10 can't wait to go back!

sol sol: the food is good and the place very fun.

Gerald Mansfield: Had a wonderful time here last night celebrating a bachelorette party with a couple of our girlfriends, we had no idea that he shows existed at this location. Now that we have attended the show at this location for the bachelorette party last night and had their food, we will definitely be back. What a hidden gem

Jaime D: Good drinks and good music. Vibe was great but food was disgusting. You'll come here to hang out with drinks and do a little dancing with friends/ppl but you won't come here for the food.

Jose Martinez: This may be the best nightclub for the Hispanic community! However, they did make numerous discriminatory decisions against Deaf/HH partygoers. I went there many times, but the bartender was very busy and stressed. Too bad! We are using our phone to communicate what kind of drinks we want. That's extremely easy to read to allow them understand, rather than screaming at their ears for their damn drinks. All of a sudden, the woman quickly waved/flipped our phone. She mentioned, "I cannot communicate with you because you cannot hear." Oh, this is 2022! There are many devices and apps to communicate with each other. Let's preparty first, then enter that bar without asking them for a drink. They are extremely rude.

Michael John: This establishment is extremely racist and did not let my friend in because he is asian. DO NOT go here and support this racist bar. Find somewhere else.

Veronica: This is for the club. The music is great. Apparently though, they will restrict water unless you continue to buy alcohol. I do believe this is ilegal no? Very disappointed that this establishment would withhold water from people who need it. To quote the bartender: " I can't keep feeding you water all night".

Keisha Shepherd: Offers free salsa and bachata lessons. Great vibe.

kevin menjivar: Boris was amazing!! Come here for the day party, starting at 6 pm. This guy is amazing. Great service

Bossa Bistro & Lounge: what do users think?


Comely Weirdo: very dark and dirty place, waited for my food for very long, but they made a cocktail for me as a compensation. glasses and plates not clen. food is very good. improve smell and cleanliness

Sam Pence: Came in for the jazz, decided to get drinks and dinner too. We chose entrees but were told that of the 7 entrees on the menu, only 1 (??) was being served that night. We decided to go with that one. 30 minutes later our waitress comes out to tell us that THAT entree is no longer being served either. Seriously? We then got tapas since by then we were super hungry. One was advertised as a "croquette" but was a simple meatball, the others were doused in salt. No chance I'll be back, but the jazz was nice.

S S: A small space with limited seating. But this club is known for the featured bands, so dancing Salsa and Bachata is what you’re going to get! There is an upstairs which opens around 12 midnight and had a pretty good female DJ which I thought was excellent! She played reggeton and a mix of other music. There is an extension to the back where there is a decent sitting area for a less than noisy experience. Let’s talk about the crowd: a mix of young and mature, mostly young hipsters. I came across several rude patrons, who apparently the phrase excuse me is unknown. The bouncer in front is nice and the bartenders were ok. There was only one who seemed to know what she was doing. $10 cover charge for a subpar experience. The crowd is the reason for -2 stars. I’ve been to better Latin clubs.

Anita Hinnerichs: A great place for authentic Brasilian cuisine, excellent live music and dancing to Latin music salsa, bachatta, merengue, samba and more. Saturday nights are my favorite, but every night has something different and full experience to tantalize all your senses.

Garner Marshall: Great spot to go to. Live music and entertainment. Friendly staff. Parking is crazy but if you're willing to drive around for a few you'll definitely find parking, there is always someone leaving. The food was pretty good, it was suggested to me by the server. I enjoyed this spot.

Disha Vyas: Great ambiance; excellent music. Must visit if you are looking for a fun night weekday or weekend while in DC. We plan to go again.

Alice Ramos: The most fun in town! Connect with your latin roots through the best music and joyful people.

amir naimi: This place has awesome live music on Saturday by the amazingly talented Jorge and his band . Small not crazy busy environment and very enjoyable .If you’re in dc it’s a must see

Carol F: Great music, delicious food, nice patrons. The only thing I don't like is the incense smell.

Rahma Hejja: Cozy place, arts all around you, great atmosphere, had delicious food (shrimp + Salad) for $24 , it was Saturday, they had live music, two bands, once finished around 8:30pm the other started around 10:40pm, Ok I am not bachata or salsa dancer, went there with no partner, but I found a space to dance and have fun with my self, as usual 😍 Ok I don’t drink so I can’t tell you about drinks there, also don’t expect a huge menu of food, what you saw in pictures here you will see around you with people if you go there.

abraham avelar: Food and drinks are good , Spanish spot , can be expensive

Angie Whitehurst: This is a neighborhood restaurant on Georgia Avenue, suitable for family and friend mesls, lunch or dinner. The menu is excellent and the plate presentations are beautiful. Big screen TV's are strategically placed in all directions, should you be a sports afficiando. In the evening the second floor becomes place latinx music. There is a bar and restrooms. The basement sports billards, food and music. The service is warm and friendly. It is not yet total ADA disability friendly to wheelchairs. The new ownership indicates possibly to make those improvements in the future. Until then, carryout is still very good.

Clemente G (El abuelo): They advertise that they open untill 3am.But they were closed when we arrived. Open signs were on and even lights inside, but doors were locked and nobody around.

Kevin Estrada: One of the Best latin American restaurants i have EVER been too! Loved the food and the service was great!

Anejo Bar & Grill: what do users think?


Ben Multak: Happy Hour —> 5/5 stars Till 9pm and has great value during this period. Bucks of beer for $20 and lots of other plates and shareable dishes for $5/6. Their cocktails are also strong but tasty. Party always seems to be just starting as we head out as they bring in live music. Regular Dining —> 4/5 Food is decently priced given what you get. Only reason I’ve rated it this low is because of the stiff competition down the street. Flavors are still really good and salsas all super tasty. Never had a bad bite.

TheRealChulaa: If I could give ZERO stars I would … the waitress must have served me someone else chips that they did not eat because I had a piece of GUM in mine ! Absolutely disgusting!!!!! And unacceptable . I am so disgusted with this place they do not care for their customers!!

Kelly Silva: They automatically ask for 18% gratuity for sloppy service, even though we were a table of 4. The food was tasteless, definitely not recommended as a family spot, more of a bar.

Karla Velazquez: The service was okay just that if go over $100 they add the service fee which I understand because some people don't leave tip but I feel like they should at least let you know. My tab came out $200 and just of service fee was $33 but the waitress wouldn't come and check on us.

Charles Butler: Unskilled bartenders who couldn't make two simple drinks. I'm a bartender as well so I know how it should be. #1. I asked for a rum, triple sec & pineapple juice. Instead of pouring the rum first, then triple sec & then pineapple juice....she pours the pineapple juice first, then the triple sec & then the rum. That's backwards. You don't have alcohol floating on top of someones drink unless they ask for it or your making a drink that requires it like a zombie with 151 rum on top. #2 The frozen margaritas she made were too salty & overpriced.

Jonathan Lee: I loved this place! Yesterday was my first time going back out since the pandemic started, not only that they have HAPPY HOUR UNTIL 9 the food tastes so good and they have a very friendly environment waitress there are so nice and funny. My waitress made me feel so comfortable, she suggested me a few of their best dishes and drinks and she did not disappointed me. Looking forward to go back real soon!

Moises Rosales (Troy Bass Rio): One of the worst places I've been to in a while. Food was very tasteless and the service was horrible even though it was a slow night. Can't believe they even charge 18% gratuity for a table of 4.

Daniel Wilhite: The food was really sub-par, service was questionable, and they blast their music at all hours of the night every day of the week, keeping their neighbors up, even after daily noise complaint warnings.

lovelylady lovelylady: Bad server. Poor attitude. Hidden cost if you use your credit card. They do not disclose this upfront. They automatically add their own gratuity in the check. 2nd time going. Thought I would give it another try. Nope!! Both times were bad experiences. Do not go. Food was not tasty at all.

Sophia: Sloppy & small portions

Odalis Restaurant: what do users think?


Pat Hi: Amazing fresh Delicious food, traveled 45 minutes for this amazing food. Highly recommended!

Lizmarie Carter: Waited 30 min for food that came cold. Three tacos no less. Nasty, cold and slow service. Don’t ever waste your money here

Leggy Bokay: Great service and delicious food! I got grilled shrimp that came with rice, salad (so good omg), some kind of salsa-esque thing (too spicy for me, but my husband loved it), and soup with beans. It was all so good. I wish my hotel had a refrigerator so I could take home the leftovers because the portion sizes were huge! Everyone who worked at the restaurant was kind and friendly. They even gave us some awesome noodles on the house! I definitely recommend going here

Bryanna G.: The food was AMAZING! The margaritas and Blue Motorcycle drinks are good as well. The owner was sweet and she was very accomadating to our group. The next time we go to Silver Spring we'll make sure to visit Odalis!

Daryl Tomlin: I love this place very much. theres a very nice air. The food is great. the service is efficient and the waiters are professional. The pay is reasonable. very much recommend.

Chrycka H: When my coworkers brought me to Odalis, the hole-in-the-wall vibe definitely caught my attention. We went really late, like 1:00 AM on a Friday night and the lady at the bar is amazing! I love listening to her Spanish and she is super nice. The apple martini special hits the spot. I've only had the 1/4 chicken meal with salad and yucca and it was succulent. The chicken is seasoned nicely, the sauces provided are fantastic, and the food came out fresh and hot. If you're looking for cheap, good eats late at night, come to Odalis 😊

Dimitri Ivanoff: More like bar restaurant rather restaurant. Food compliments drinks. Service isn't bad, full bar, live music over weekends. Parking is behind the building in the new apartment complex. Overall it's a good place to spend Thursday or Friday evening.

Vero Duran: I had so much fun last night ,the food was amazing .thanks for the service i'm coming back there again

glowomar: The food was not it and they don’t even wear masks in that place knowing theres a pandemic going on food was 1/10.

Mrs Destiny: The food is good, but lately every time I call they answer in Spanish and I let them know I would like to place an order and they say they're closed. Every time!!! It was different occasions after 11am.

Haydee's Restaurant: what do users think?


Scott Hughes: Haydee’s is a true hidden gem. Go for dinner and get the papusa platter, get a house, peach, or strawberry margarita and enjoy the amazing karaoke. Special place

Tommy Molina: Food tasted awful, really disappointed. Hard to say but may be the worst Mexican food I have ever had in my life. Couldn't even finish my burrito. No plans to ever return.
Response: Hope you find the burrito of your dreams ❤️

Aurora Diaz: I LOVE HAYDEES. 🌈🌺🦋✨ Always come and check out the vibe when I’m in town for business. There’s always a myriad of things going on from dance parties to drag shows to karaoke. Food serves late, drinks are abundant and the space is lively. It’s not for the snobby Airbnb tourists, if you don’t like a local restaurant of a place you’re visiting, bashing them on the internet is obnoxiously irritating. I would be rude to snobby tourists too. Get a grip. Lol.

Ma. M: Even though the food is not good at all, the atmosphere is great! It’s such a fun place.

Zachary Hubbell: I’ve been a longtime Haydee’s fan and my recent visit was consistent with my memory - good stuff. Service was friendly and our nachos were good.

Naheed Mann: Great friebdly customer service. Cozy environment and good food. And spanish Karaoke all night long!

Celeste Favor: I ordered to go from this spot because my first order fell through Best buffalo wings I’ve had in years and loved the fresh cut fries! The portions were ample for the price. This was my first time ordering from here, but I will order again. I see other offerings I want to try. 🤤

Cheryl Tolbert: I L💞VE HAYDEE (SHE IS AN AMAZING WOMEN, PERSON, FRIEND, CHIEF, & BUSINESS WOMEN) I L💞VE HER, HER FAMILY, HER EMPLOYEES!!! BUT MOST OF !!!!!! HER FOOD& DRINKS😋😋😋 YOU NEED TO GO THERE (NOW) TO EAT !! DRINK!! & BE MERRY!!👍🏾🙏🏾

Igor at skvltd.media: Superb Mexican family restaurant! Food is delicious and drinks are nice and hard!

Matthew Jaffke: The service was great in that they kept checking on us. Even though we were the only 2 people there. I really appreciated it 😌

The Royal: what do users think?


Jennifer Trent: Absolutely beautiful covered patio, with heaters if needed, and fantastic service. Easy to order and pay through their QR code, and the food was the best we’ve had in a long time. The steak, gnocchi, and rockfish were all absolutely excellent!

Meia Harris: The highlight of The Royal is certainly the ambiance. I loved the plants and decor- even the dinnerware was nice. There is no table service- rather you place your order online. It was simple enough, and the food came out relatively fast. The guava pastry was yummy. I would suggest ordering this to share as this might be too sweet for some to eat by themselves (I at least found it too sweet to eat the whole thing). I tried the Autumn Spice Latte. I really appreciate the barista's beautiful latte art! The latte was quite sweet as well but not overly so. I would also like to mention that the latte came in what appeared to be a standard 8 oz mug and was over $7. This seems way overpriced for a drink that's 2/3 milk. For my main I had the Eggs and Potatoes. This is one of the few options on the brunch menu for my fellow vegetarians. When it came to my table I was tantalized by the appearance of the plate, but disappointment ensued. I found the whole plate to be under seasoned. I could not taste or see any salt or pepper on the eggs. The potatoes were crispy but were also lacking flavor in the salt and pepper department. There were a couple slices of toast on the plate but it was nothing special. Even though I absolutely adore the interior of this space, a restaurant's main determining factor on whether I return is the food. And based on that, the likelihood of returning for a second visit is quite low. I really wanted to love the food and give this place a higher rating but alas..

Kayla N: I ordered the seared fish and the gnocchi, which were both AMAZING. The flavors, ingredients, every bite I had was so delicious. However, the only downside was the gnocchi was oversalted in my opinion. The decor, plants and design were a nice touch to the overall vibe of this restaurant. 2 notes to keep in mind as of writing this review: 1) There is no table service - you place your order online and the food will be delivered to you. 2) You will need proof of vaccination and ID to dine in.

Tina N: We got the lox tartine, sausage egg & cheese sandwich, and egg & chorizo arepa. Good flavors all around. Will have to try their pastries next time!

Lauren G: This was my first time at The Royal. It was a nice experience. The staff was really nice, the food was delicious, and it looks like they are working hard to keep everyone safe during these covid times. The only challenge we experienced was when they tried to make it easy for people to split the bill electronically. We couldn’t really figure it out, but it all worked out. We all just paid for our own meals on our own phones. I had the Lox Tartine and we shared the Guava Pastry. Both were really good!

Aracely Hernandez: Absolutely best, authentic Colombian cuisine I’ve had in a very long time!! The customer service reflects the incredibly tasty menu - perfect combination for an amazing dining experience. It was my first visit - and a very memorable one. I’ll be coming a lot more to try the entire menu. I highly recommend Royal! I’m just so impressed and thankful to the staff who were amazingly attentive!

David Robinson: The only challenge we experienced was when they tried to make it easy for people to split the bill electronically. We couldn’t really figure it out, but it all worked out. We all just paid for our own meals on our own phones.

Fernanda Lanzagorta: Great food and great portions. I loved the casual ambiance and the kindness of the people working there. For a Michelin star restaurant the portions are perfect. I’ll definitely come back to try more of their food.

Michael Cork: Incredible ambiance and the food is delicious. Brussels sprouts are 🔥🔥🔥. Keeli makes the best cocktails in town

Hamdi Maher: Their egg arepa was a great breakfast dish! The sauce it came with was also great, perfect amount of spice.

Habana Village: what do users think?


Adam Farrell: We were just walking by, and were immediately enticed by the fun salsa/latin beat, savory aroma and fantastic vibes pouring out of this establishment. When we saw their happy hour selections, we were sold (5-7pm!). Outstanding Piña-Coladas, Mohitos, and Margaritas confirmed our anticipation, delicious and only six bucks. $3 draught beers, more fantastic music and THE BEST fried yucca were also enjoyed. This place is so fun, affordable and the kitchen is one of the most professional in the area. Mario was the most welcoming of bar tenders, as he happily explained the menu, their story and some of the dance classes that are offered (prior to covid). We felt safe being served outside and will be back FOR SURE. Especially for some dance lessons! P.S. for the authentic cuban experience, finish your meal with a shot of aguardiente! Delicious!

Madison Dull: This was a wonderful experience. the food, service, and music was incredible. The food was authentic. The service was perfect they were around the perfect amount. Mario, the server, was very attentive and made wonderful drink and food recemendations. It would be a shame not to dine at this restaurant.

Kezia M: Went here for my friends birthday! They were timely in getting us seated after being a bit late for our reservation. The staff were very nice and sincere. Absolutely loved the food! Took a little bit to come out but it was well worth the wait. Some of the best plantains I’ve ever had! Their rice and beans... chefs kiss. Will definitely return whenever I make my way to DC again!

Ernesto's Coffee Adventures: I love Salsa clubs and I have been to many all over the country but I have to say this one is the worst experience ever!! I went there on a Friday come to find out they charge you $20.00 and I didn't get to dance salsa music. I asked the lady on the third floor if I could see around the rope to see how many people were there and she denied me.. There was only two couples the whole night dancing. The people that work there are also not the nicest. It is pricey but it would be worth it it fulfilled the salsa vibe experience. For a salsa vibe I recommend Café Citron. I have been to many Salsa clubs and this one is the worst.

Jon A: I booked a party of 7 and was well accommodated. The food was very delicious, and the music authentic. Not like chain restaurant food. The hot and spicy wings was an appetizer everyone at the table couldn't get enough of, and every single person enjoyed their meal. Ontop of that the Flan they brought for the birthday Man was among the best Flan I have had.

Tina B.: Great cheap happy hour. Get a mojito! The tostones weren't very flavorful, but the chicken croquettes were delish.

Bryanna Dankers: My boyfriend and i went here a few times and have always had the best service - the food was very good (especially the ceviche) and the mojito’s! The server was very welcoming and a pleasure to speak to! Will always come here if we want Cuban cuisine! :)

MONICA MORLEY: Love the place, the owners are there greeting you and making sure you're having a good time. Music is terrific. Salsa lessons and ladies night are the best

Jocelyn Ponce-Lopez: It was our first time. We loved it. It was a late dinner yesterday Saturday at 10:30 pm. They welcomed us and the manager served us during dinner. We had the guacamole, empanadas and the Cuban sandwich. The sandwich was a real Cuban, like my mother’s. The music was perfect and we had a great time. The place was spotless, everybody wearing masks. I highly recommend this place.

Elizabeth T: This place was a great choice to go to! We ordered the nachos and they were fantastic!! It’s such a nice place to go and enjoy dinner and a drink. I felt right at home and they were very attentive. They sanitize their glasses and I was very happy to see that during this time! Everything was delicious. Make this a place to go and visit soon!

Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar - Washington, D.C.: what do users think?


Diana Hjelmeir: Husband and I love coming here for lunch/brunch on Sundays! If you like high end shopping, there is a shopping center right by this place. The interior is really well done, you feel like you're walked into a Universal Resort or theme park Cuban/Hispanic restaurant! I love seeing the interior whenever we eat here. We've always walked here, so I can't comment about the parking. I also didn't use the bathroom, so I also can't comment. Our waitress Paola was very patient with our children and loved interacting with them, thank you! Our orders were put in quickly and everything was delicious.
Response: WOW, Diana! Thank you for sharing this wonderful review! Here at Cuba Libre Washington DC, we strive to provide our guests with efficient service and mouthwatering dishes. Your praise lets us know we're succeeding! We're so glad you appreciated not only our inviting atmosphere and and courteous staff, but our delicious meals as well. We look forward to hosting you again soon for another memorable experience. Muchas gracias! -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Da-Wang Wu: One of my favorite restaurants in DC. The interior design is pretty cool, and the ambience is great. My favorite is the seafood soup, very flavorful with lots of seafood inside. During dinner time (after 4pm), they serve toasted bread with mango butter, super refreshing flavor! Chicken croquette, fried yuca and empanadas are all very good. Guacamole is beautiful decorated but not the best one I’ve ever had. Paella doesn’t feel right, pretty wet. Churro as an ending dessert to be meal is a great option. Reservation might be needed during peak hours.
Response: Thank you for the great review, Da-Wang Wu! We're thrilled that you enjoyed your dining experience at Cuba Libre! We appreciate your praise for our decor and delicious dishes. The soup and empanadas were fantastic choices! Come back soon! Muchas gracias! -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

M: Good food.Service took a while but it's ok. Pandemic times calls for extra patience. Once we got a server, we ordered food, it came without a long wait. It was a nice end of day meal after a museum marathon on a Sunday.
Response: We appreciate your feedback, Madelaine. We are thriled that you enjoyed our great feedback, but we are disappointed to hear that our service failed to meet your expectations. We appreciate your understanding regarding the pandemic, and our service.

Vikram Seshadri: Loved the music and the ambiance was very lively. Amazing vegetarian and Vegan options. Must try the Mojitos, Yuca fries and the Plantain chips.Had to call ahead and reserve a table and the restaurant was super busy on a weekday but was definitely worth it.
Response: We appreciate this detailed review, Vikram! We are delighted that you had a great time at Cuba Libre Washington DC and loved our music, vibrant ambiance, wide menu variety, and delicious meals. We are always seeking feedback, so we cannot thank you enough for letting us know how we are doing! Come see us again soon for another amazing experience! -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Abby Fasehun: Loved the ambiance, felt like I was on the street of Havana. The Empanadas Was really good, forgot to take a photo of it, but overall, food was great. Customer service was top notch. Oh and the music!!! Got me moving the whole time. I’ll be back.
Response: We appreciate this glowing feedback, Bisola! Our team here at Cuba Libre Washington DC is delighted to hear that you loved our authentic Cuban ambiance, delicious food, amazing music, and phenomenal made-from-scratch dishes. This praise means the absolute world to us, and we hope to see you again soon for another excellent time! -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Melinda Nguyen: Fantastic place for music, dancing, and drinks. The decor was beautiful and inviting. The space was open and the dance floor was fenced in which was a cool way to separate the space. It's busy and crowded on a Saturday night, but still had space to move around. Drinks were on point. The only downside was the lack of places to hang coats or bags. Coming during the winter, a lot of people struggled to put their things in a safe spot. Dancing with all the stuff is no fun. They should consider a coat check or something, especially in the winter. All in all, great music.. mix of Latin and pop throughout the night. I would definitely go back in the spring or summer.
Response: Thanks for the great review, Melinda! Cuba Libre is happy to hear about your experience! We're glad you enjoyed our ambiance, decor, and delicious drinks! We will make sure to discuss your comments regarding the lack of a coatroom with our staff moving forward. We're excited to welcome you back soon! -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Kevin Russell: This is a long review, but please read to the end. Food is really good and the decor is great. On Friday and Saturday nights, not sure the time (I think around 10) the place basically turns into a salsa dance club. Really cool. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars from me this time was because our service was awful this trip. This is a follow up to that visit. The GM contacted me regarding the service. He took the time to address what happened and has generously offered to invite us back and make it right. This is the type of service restaurants should try to achieve. He takes pride in the customer experience and was very sincere. So I'm changing to 5 stars. I look forward to our next visit. As I said previously, the food is good, actually, great, and just a great place to have fun with your friends. I highly recommend this place. For a great app, try the empanadas. Really tasty. Oh, and I did forget to mention before, I'd suggest reservations on Friday and Saturday as a lot are there to enjoy the food and then dance the night away with some unique drinks they have! I'm confident our next visit will be amazing and I can't wait!!! I'll add photos of the dance floor and the food we choose this time around. We just had our evening here again after the service that was subpar before. This time, there was nothing subpar about our experience. We had a great table, our waiter was very attentive, fun, and made great suggestions for our friend that hadn't been there before. We had chicken and beef empanadas, and pineapple guacamole for apps. Was very good. Our dinner was very good. My friend and I had the plato gaucho mixed grill. My other friend had a neat and rice dish that I forgot to ask the name of. He's a chef at the White House, and he thought everything was excellent! The manager was aware of our previous experience and brought us desserts, and after dinner drinks that was a very nice touch, and we're also very good. The music was really good. The place really filled up with people to dance the night away on the dance floor that starts at 11 until 3 am. Everyone was having a great time. There was a pretty good sized line of people waiting outside to get in to enjoy the dancing. Really a perfect night out. Please go and support this restaurant. I highly doubt you will regret it. And if something isn't right, they will ensure to make it right. A big thank you to the GM, Matthew Fox, the manager Jessica, and our waiter!!!
Response: We sincerely apologize for the service challenges that you encountered, Kevin. We kindly ask that you contact us at info@cubalibrerestaurant.com for further discussion so that we can learn more. -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Austin Graff: A friend of mine's favorite restaurant in the world is Cuba Libre in D.C.'s Chinatown. He loves the drinks, food, atmosphere and music. Having not visited in over a decade, we made a reservation for a Sunday dinner. Here's our experience: 1) Food: The menu is Cuban and has variety with appetizers, mains, desserts and a kid's menu. My Cuban sandwich and shrimp dish were flavorful and my five-year-old daughter even loved the food! 2) Drinks: They have a rum bar and three options for sangria that come by the glass or pitchers. My friend and I split the red sangria. It was strong, but not as sweet as other sangrias. 3) Atmosphere: They try to transport you to Cuba. The restaurant is spacious and even has outdoor seating during the winter. Salsa dancing happens at Ciba Libre too! 4) Service: It was easy to make an online reservation. However, when we dined in the service was average. Our server wasn't very attentive and not very friendly, which is fine since we all have off-days. But our food took a long time to come out. 5) Price: It's pricey, even for D.C. If the food was the best you've had, it would be better, but with good, but not phenomenal food, the prices felt off. This spot isn't a bad option, but I don't join my friend in titling it the best in the world.
Response: Thank you for your detailed feedback and kind words, Austin. We sincerely apologize for the time you waited and service you experienced. Please reach out to us directly at info@cubalibrerestaurant.com so we may further discuss. Thank you. -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Michelle Edgar: We spent years in “little Cuba” in Hialeah FL, so we are pretty well versed in cuban food. This was stellar! Drinks were strong but flavorful. My husband and I got the mixed grill to share and it did not disappoint! If we come back to the dc area this will be our first stop!
Response: Muchas Gracias, Michelle! We are thrilled that our great food and delicious drinks exceeded your expectations. We look forward to hosting you again in the future for another great experience! -Matthew Fox General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Greg Amiker: Beautiful layout (ambience feels like you're in a Cuban garden). The staff and managers were friendly and helpful. The seating is both indoors and outside. After 11pm on Weekends they turn part of the restaurant into a "Hot Cuban Club" with a nice setup of Mambo music, disco lights and DJ. Be aware that you're in downtown DC so expect pricey food and drinks, but the Mojito and other Cuban food is great!
Response: We appreciate your great review, Greg! Our team is so grateful that you took the time to let us know about your recent visit to Cuba Libre Washington DC! Your praise for our ambiance, attentive team, drinks, and made-from-scratch dishes is greatly valued! We hope to see you again soon for another outstanding experience. -Jessica Lopez General Manager, Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Washington, DC

Tropicalia Lounge: what do users think?


TruMari Cooper: Tropicalia is a good time!!! The venue is extremely cozy and the sound throughout is lovely. The bathroom was clean and bar spacious! The venue is downstairs as well. When we went it wasn't insanely packed so there was no issues with it being hot. All in all it was a nice experience.

Melissa Sky: Great location, vibes, cocktails and music (Live and djays). Diversity is the spice of life and Tropicalia takes you outside the "bubble". Mix up the music! Irie!

Ty Black: This is the only place I like to dance at. They got rid of 80s night it seems, but that's fine cause the music is still better than other places. People tend to be nice and not creepy. But it is small so it gets really crowded and drinks sometimes get spilled.

Aurore Lrdlc: The place in itself and staff are nice (the only reasons why I could come back). However over the three bands playing on stage, only one was listenable. The other two were (sorry)... atrocious (in addition to the sound which was a way too loud). The public was only made up of families and members of the other bands... I do not know how the bands selection is made and maybe I did not come on the right day, but for a Saturday night I was strongly disappointed by the stage (and I'm not the only one). I lost $12 cover and my ears came out in blood. Will not come again unless I checked the bands before coming.

Bin “habesh times” Fi: It’s an okay club seen. Bouncer asked me for money as a bribe because my friend forgot her Id. The music is a C+ not very good or bad. Drinks are fair priced considering the area and the time.

Karoll William Visual Arts:  Learn to pronounce I just got mistreated by the person at the door. I visited this bar as part of the artists that performed that night, at a time when I went out to smoke a cigarette on the sidewalk in front, he tells me with an attitude that I had to go to the corner. I replied that I was on the street, that it is a public place and told me that then my night was "over" and that he would not let me in again. Of course I went to another friendlier place. I attach the picture of the stupid.

Alex Lima: This venue tend to have very good bands. But, they cut the shows off too early to give the stage to the house DJ that is nothing more than average. The venue does nit sell food and the drinks are somewhat overpriced.

scott g: Fun place. Went for a charity event and had a band playing. Great atmosphere

Edward Eilers: Open later and good atmosphere, decent drinks. Well lit areas plus spaces to sit and also less light in some areas. Overall as a small club it is good for the area, another way to unwind.

frank swyca: Topicalia Lounge is a really cool night spot. Eclectic live music and decent DJ later at night keeps the vibe popping. I took a friend from out town there and they loved it! My favorite spot in that 14th St. club area. Worth checking out if you have not.

Toro Toro: what do users think?


Gina S: Stopped in for Happy Hour and was impressed with the quality, freshness, taste and presentation of the menu items ordered. Don't expect larger portions, but expect a good experience. Annnnnd, the mojitos were amazing.

Wisteria McNeil: Really great music. However, they said it was Colombian night, but I heard more bad bunny than I did Joe Arroyo. Not much cumbia either. Still great music and a fun time. Drinks are expensive, but it's downtown DC

Dondré: Solid brunch spot. They do offer a bottomless brunch special. The food was really good. Our waiter was nice, this place gets packed for brunch, they do have lots of seating though. It's well decorated and gives off very chill vibes.

Pascal Johnstone: We went to Toro Toro after our plans for dinner at another restaurant fell through, and we could not have been more impressed! Our starter, the guacamole served with tuna tartare, was unexpectedly satisfying and proved a good prelude to the main meal consisting of salmon and the signature burger. Both were excellent, and the burger in particular was reasonably priced for a sizeable portion. The salmon was also delicious. After our meal, the manager offered us free dessert as well as coupons for two free drinks and an appetiser at our next visit. We will definitely be back the next time we visit DC!

Zerena Volcy: Service was a little slow at first but we came at a busy time however the food (unlimited brunch service) was very good. I would recommend it to my friends. The host Pandu provided excellent service to guest and ourselves he was taking responsibilities that were not in his host job description. He is great every restaurant needs his energy and attitude.

The Social Diplomat: Toro Toro is a good spot for Latin Night on a Friday night. The crowd is balanced, the drinks are good, the DJ's are on point. Get here early, because the dance floor get's packed. For guys not used to dancing Latin music, take a class or you will suffer rejection by not knowing how to dance. Go to Bachata Brunch at Public Bar live for 3 weeks of Sunday lessons to build up confidence. The girl to guy ratio is decent except from Dec.-Feb, the crowd slows down. For my reviews follow on IG: _The.Social.Diplomat

Chela Williams: I visited this establishment for winter restaurant week in 2016. When we arrived business was kind of slow. Our waiter was nice and accommodating. Very informative with explaining the dishes to me and my mother. I'm used to tapa style restaurants.....She isn't. The food was different but very good! She usually doesn't be venture out so if she likes it you know it was good. She even brought it up about two weeks ago asking about the name. I believe I was full when I left. It's expensive but the food it worth it.

Hilda Kroll: A good place for a reasonably priced lunch. The first time I ate here there was a fabulous buffet. The last time, the special was unlimited tapas. Now the $20 lunch special includes one antojito and one salad or sandwich. I chose the braised short rib arepa and the Cubano sandwich. Located a couple of blocks from the National Museum for Women in the Arts and close to Metro Center, it's worth a visit.

Ap Queen: 4-11-19 My Best Friend and I Met up for Lunch and checked out Toro Toro. We ordered the Appetizers of both Empanadas De choclo & De Lomo Saltado, and the Tempura Mahi Mahi Tacos. As The Main Dishes we ordered the Pan Seared Grilled Atlantic Salmon with Arroz Chaufa (Fried rice with steak, chicken, chorizo) and Chili-Lime & Cotija French Fries. Everything was so Pretty displayed while being sat carefully on the table definitely ate with our eyes and amazed even from far away you noticed the colors. The Flavors were all in a flavor haven of their own no seasoning at all was needed. Not too salty or under salted, listen honeyyyy!!! restaurants can definitely take cue from Toro Toro with having the just right amount of seasonings it was so balanced to perfection. The Salmon was so tender my best friend even questioned what she was doing wrong when she makes salmon at home because it was so moist but still crisp and flakey. While everything was great !! Those Mahi Mahi Tacos with the Chipotle-Paprika Aoli was to Die for you listening Foodie ppl. The fish was meaty, the crisp from the tempura was still crisp even after sitting for a little bit. The Chipotle-Paprika Aoli was EVERYTHING!!! just enough kick =) such a excellent choice. If I was dying and I had to choose a last meal just give me a huge plate of those!! And a cherry coke extra cherries and I'd die Happy as hell lol. My Waitress was awesome she made me a sprite mixed with lemonade then we joked about adding Vodka tho since she seen my card beforehand. She kept my glass refilled, constantly checking the table to make sure we were Good. Lastly for dessert we had the La Bomba experience SoOo cool to watch!! Churros with chocolate soOo super soft and tres le ches everything split up. It was my Best friends first time at Toro Toro and she really enjoyed it and the Food Options fit her no meat palette so I was glad she was able to experience The Toro Toro way!! Lol ... We even set a plan to get together 2 times a month so we definitely will be back!!! Especially Meeee for those Mahi Mahi Tacos!! on the way out I told the manager don't ever get rid of those tacos no matter what. So THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THE BEST EXPERIENCE.
Response: Dear Ap, Thank you for your social media review and such a positive rating. In future, if I can be of any assistance please feel free to reach out.

Janay W: Cute place! Shout out to our server Edgar and bartender bae Matt at the bar! It was super busy as we went for Saturday brunch but the service and food was great! The drinks were amazing!! Bathrooms were cute and clean. The only meh experience was a very tall employee who dismissed me when I asked him to take a picture... Despite that Edgar was super attentive and supportive as was Matt and the other wait staff. Will visit again for sure!

Joselyn Restaurant Bar & Lounge: what do users think?


Marbin Gonzalez: Wouldn't return .😞😞 We just stepped in with a craving in our sweet tooth. Purchased the tiramisu and chocolate cake we had seen on the menu on the way in . When the "cook" wearing a t shirt put the cake in the Togo in the microwave I was suspicious . My wife said she likes warm choc cake. At the car we find out its frozen. Never again .

Adriana Gault: Amazing amazing AMAZING!!!! Please come and taste this food! It’s SOOO DELICIOUS 😋. The Staff is so Friendly I fell in love!! Lol

Blake Wilson: I really wanted to like this place but didn't and here's why. I did a call in order and went to pick it up 20 minutes like I was told but it wasn't ready. So I had to wait an additional 7 minutes inside the restaurant and that was fine because I won't in a rush but when I got home the food was just not worth the wait. My guess was that they were worried I wouldn't actually pick the order up which I can empathize with. And my guess is that they fried the taquitos while I was there. The taquitos were amazing. I really enjoyed them but my sides were gross actually. The beans were bland but the plantains tasted rancid. Not just one or two but the bulk of them. They had a sour, smokey flavor that cancelled out the goodness of the taquitos. Normally I would give a spot like this another shot or ever pass on reviewing at all but I am trying to be more critical of capitalism and speak up when stuff like this happens.

Brianna King: The food very very good! Also the margaritas tasted very authentic. Best calamari I've had.

Alyx: My friends and I came after visiting Hook Hall for a late dinner. Wow it was so good. It was all super fresh and the service was great. I had the steak tacos, and my friends had the carne guisada and desayuno tipico. It was all so delicious. We came on a Saturday night and they had that discoteca in full blast in the back bar. I thought it was a very fun and authentic feeling. I'd definitely come back or order take out.

Jenelle Bush: This place has some of the tastiest food in the city! I am so glad Fish in the Hood was closed on Black Friday because I was forced to try something else, and my goodness am I happy I tried Joselyn's! I bought the cheese pupusa, fried calamari, mixed fajitas, fried plantain, and my son had the chicken quesadilla. We were looking at each other and smiling because the food was THAT GOOD! This is our new spot!

Jennifer Mancia: One of the worst pupusas I have ever tasted in my life. They were dry and had nothing inside of them. I can’t even call them pupusas because it was more of just a plain tortilla.

Lexy Love: FIRST AND LAST time my friends and I will go here. At first glance, we were seated at a sticky table with a foul odor in the air. Then, we saw mice in the restaurant. We’ll pass...

Zhurdii K: I've never had a bad experience. I go on my lunch break several times per week. Everything is delicious, and the presentation is stunning. I think I'll head over there now.

Supo Akinleye: Food always sizzling, love this place

Centeno's Restaurant: what do users think?


Precaria Arte Oscuro Mexicano: Totally recommended latinamerican food. The servers don't speak English though. I had to help my friends with the orders. I liked so much the taste that I returned the next day for the same dish... The "parrillada mixta", or as it's commonly called "cielo, mar y tierra". Practically beef, chicken and shrimp fajitas that are extremely well seasoned. The individual tacos and gorditas are really good too and they have La Anita green habanero sauce which is a plus. I want to return.

Mike Jobbins: Total surprise, with an extensive Salvadoran menu and full bar & good breakfast. Thought it was a pizza place from the sign but it's a pleasant casual sit down restaurant and bar

Appleone Fisher: The prices are way too expensive and the food is very average.. I don’t think it is worth the prices. However me and my husband have eaten here twice and the quality of the food is poor.. I don’t recommend

Dabqueen1620: Great food and great service! Tilapia was amazing, cooked and seasoned to perfection, also large portions!

Dorian Coley: J was surprised by this place a friend invited me here for a beer. He ordered bbq wings and fries and they were good. I ordered buffalo wings and although the sauce was not the standard buffalo I enjoyed the wings they were good. We drank some beers and had a good time. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. I plan on going back to try some of the other food I hear the steak is great.

Y Dzi: Food is delicious! Simple as that.

Melbin Medina: Very good food. Nice environment. Staff is on point. Recommend.

Rafael Serrano: Great authentic food, good service and prices. If you want a neighborhood restaurant with real Latin food, look no further. You will not be dissapointed.

Reggie Esteban Salsa: Centeno's is my go to place for salmon. It is tender and the sauce is really good. The place is clean and they also have a DJ that comes in on the weekend evenings.

Chaturbhuj bhojwani: I was there first time it was good experience.Food was ok. Service was fine.

La Cosecha: what do users think?


Millie Kwan: This is a great space for Latinx businesses such as home goods boutiques, wine/wine bar and gourmet grocery, food stands and restaurants. There is an upstairs lounge as well as outdoor seating. Even the indoor space is a large open space and it is not crowded like Union Market making it easier to navigate during the pandemic. Would have liked to try more than one of the food stands, but well go back again. Beautiful space and do highly recommend.

Hector Mejia: Is impressive the change in this area " florida ave ' everything is clean soooo " la cosecha " is a restaurant in the new Florida ave dc i was there is beautiful place for sharing time with family you can find Japanese,Mexican.,peruvian And more class of food really impressed with this place !! Also you can buy things for your home too I recommend 100%!!

Tania Abraham: What an amazing experience, space and open market/food court. La Cosecha is the perfect space for doing some window shopping, actual shopping, grab a drink, and/or grab a meal. I was genuinely spoiled for choice with all the great options… So I sampled a bit of everything from the various restaurants! Nothing was a disappointment & I ended it with a Cafe Con Leche Paleta from Jarabe Gourmet Pops!!!

Nate B: This is a nice place. There are several good places to get food or drinks. It is very clean and people are friendly. I would definitely recommend this place.

John Huegel: La Cosecha is an urban destination and attracts a lot of young adults as well as some older folks like me. A dozen or so proprietors sell trendy food and drink and a few other things. My wife and I were attracted by the Argentine Tango group that holds an introduction to Tango lesson and a Practica on the loft level for experienced dancers on the fourth Sunday of each month. A great place to dance on a Sunday afternoon. We travelled there from Delaware just for that.

Daisy Gutierrez: The new drinks inspired by Selena songs are amazing!

KIMBERLY THOMAS: Always a great time and great food! Definitely recommend. The food and drinks are perfect. The service is even better. Ask for Maria! She’ll take good care of you!

Laura Garnett: This is my favorite market in the whole of DC. You can find the best Latin American food, wine, and artisan shops. I purchased this new ear cuff here, made by indigenous women in Colombia. We need more of these personal, diverse, and authentic cultural venues, especially in the "click-and-buy" world we live in.

K A: I found this hidden gem in D.C and I couldn’t help but check it out and I didn’t regret it. It’s filled with so much culture and art along side nice restaurants, a wine shop, a coffee shop(Unido) to mention a few. I particularly loved checking Nova Bossa out. Such a beautiful shop with quality items. First time here and I would definitely revisit to try out some great delicacies. I highly recommend this contemporary market to all art and food lovers and also it’s a must visit to all locals and tourists. Good Service✅ Courteous Staff✅ Lovely Ambiance ✅ Parking Garage ✅ ♿️Wheelchair Accessible Entrance✅ ♿️Wheelchair Accessible Restroom✅ 🚻Restroom

Paul Wright: Went back and discovered Destino, a Mexican restaurant. It's AMAZING!!! Service is fantastic, food was en point and atmosphere was both elegant and charming. Love this location!

Chupacabra Latin Kitchen & Taqueria: what do users think?


Jmelle Harris: This place is under new management! Unfortunately, I had a generally unpleasant experience! I stopped past with about 6 months lapse between last visit and now. To start, the cashier seemed generally bored. She displayed irritation as I placed my order - I chucked it up to it being 4:40 PM and it not being the coolest day. The fish on the fish tacos is no longer baked but instead fried; an unhealthy alternative to what used to be a healthy quick choice. When I mentioned the difference, the chef/manager argues with me saying the fish couldn't have been grilled since the last owners didn't have a grill. I expressed that it may have been baked but certainly not fried. (He scoffs) The prices are noticably different with an additional $4 give or take added to each menu item compared to before. I'll pass 🤷🏽‍♀️ *Edit after meal and after review of previous response*: Your response is an testament to the services rendered. The community can decide. I changed my order because of the unexpected change in pricing. The interaction was definitely strained. :) As for the fried food that I accepted out of hunger, frustration, lack of additional energy to put into this, then(and generally still wanting to give my PREVIOUSLY favorite H ST taco place a chance), I enjoyed the tacos. They were quite delicious although not the healthier options that used to be presented under previous management. I am hopeful that you are able to consistently greet and entertain customers of future patronage as we undergo this obvious change in our neighborhood. It's only natural to mention the changes. Let's face it, even the tone in this response doesn't reflect the previous owners'. I'll continue to pass 🤷🏽‍♀️
Response: Jmelle, I'm sorry to see this review, but this review is completely inaccurate and unfair. You were greated nicely, given a menu to read, and then ordered. You then changed your mind 2 times on what you wanted and the bartender adjusted the order. You were the one that got irrated when I brought out your fish Tacos, and asked if you wanted salsa. I explained that they are fried and come with Chipotle Aoili, and some people like salsa as well. You then proceeded to tell me how things have changed and that "Normally you don't accept fried food, but you'll make an exception this time", and then left. I never scoffed at that comment but I did explain that the fish has always been friend becuase there is no over or grille to cook them on. You're comment was rude and demeaning to myself and my staff. The only person that scoffed or was irrated was you. My staff giving great customer service is important, but being a good customer is just as important. I'm sorry you didn't pay attention to the menu when you ordered. I would have been happy to make you something else but the manner in which you left didnt allow me or the bartneder to offer any help. Enjoy the fish tacos

Amanda Juncaj: Best birria tacos we’ve ever had! Great music playing and patio atmosphere was very chill. Service was excellent even though they were clearly short-staffed with only two people. Will definitely be back soon

Alexis Smith: This place used to be good but I guess they’re under new management/owners and it’s awful! The owner guy is extremely rude with a condescending attitude. I walked in and instead of the owner saying “hey sorry I can’t take your order right now, our internet is down” he points to the door and says leave. You can’t talk to your customers any type of way especially when they’re paying YOUR BILLS. The lady who I think is the manager has a wanna-be bully style of talking to her employees and customers. I’ve been here twice since they reopened and both times have been horrible. Some of the prices have doubled since reopening but went down in flavor. This place used to be a gem but now it’s a mediocre excuse for a restaurant. Might as well order Taco Bell with the way the food and service is here now.

thank you: So disappointed with this restaurant today I've been going to them for yrs !!! And the staff today was rude the older guy with the grey curls to be exact. He had a attitude each time I asked about items on the menu or something for our table. And I loved going to them because of there different spicy sauces and today the guy act as if he didn't know what I was talking about. Also I see they added cheese in my bowl which they usually don't put. You would think they would ask and see if you would like it inside not everyone eats dairy. And our drinks were weakkkk.

Jim Platner: Chupacabra has consistently great burritos and tacos, as well as excellent hot sauces. We frequently get their food for takeout and enjoy it thoroughly. While they were closed for a while recently we have seen they have opened back up!

Tiana E: We have been riding past this place for some time now saying that we would try it and we finally did. We were pleasantly greeted by Amber the bartender and our server and they don’t have indoor seating but glad the weather was perfect for the patio! She was energetic and enthusiastic about helping us the entire time and it was plus that her vibe was great and she was an Eagles fan! We ordered a frozen margarita (don’t waste your time on it) two margaritas (good) and the taco special 4 tacos and 2 beers for $20 we wanted the birria tacos but they were out. We settled for the barbacoa with some of the consume on the side - it was just MEHHH!!! The tacos were sitting in broth, which made them soggy, and kind of falling apart. They were packed with a good amount of meat - which was a plus and the consume wasn’t that flavorful but wasn’t horrible either. OVERALL: 4/5 Food: 7/10 Drinks: 8/10 Service: 10/10

Marisa Iannelli: In town for the weekend and came across this great spot for dinner! Food was delicious and was a great VIBE. Super friendly and hospitable staff. You can't leave without a margarita made by Jessica!

Alyssa Louise McCall: I cannot say enough about this place!! The food, the drinks, and the customer service are amazing! Thank you for showing our friend so much love for his birthday!

Joe Ryan: Nice outside area, great food. Everything so fresh and very tasty. If you like hot sauces, they got you.

Vinny C.: Anyone can do tacos, but not like this! If you want flavorful food served up by a friendly staff the Chupacabra delivers. While there I overheard a co-owner talking with patrons about the menu and what they liked. Come to find out they've been in business for 8 years with customers driving in from outside the Beltway. So have a seat, enjoy the sounds of the city, and make some memories over some great food!

El Rinconcito Cafe: what do users think?


Food Enthusiast: Great food, reasonable prices, and large portions! The restaurant is small but cozy and very clean. The staff are very kind and welcoming. I will definitely come back and try their other dishes. One of the best Salvadorian food restaurants I have been to in DC!

Asif Rehmani: Food is very tasty. I had the beef chimichanga and I thought it was pretty good. Also the pricing is very reasonable. The platter for chimichanga was $11. This place is in the heart of downtown DC so it's hard to get a better deal than that. I was there at the time that they were going to close and most of the clientele that time are people at the bar. I noticed many people coming and going with their takeout orders and those sitting at the bar. All 100% Mexican it seemed. Good friendly crowd. However don't expect to hold a conversation with anyone unless you speak Spanish yourself 🙂

Elizabeth Tate: This place has the best horchata and the best enchiladas I have ever had. Every bite of this meal has bursts of flavor! The refried beans were 💯, and the salad on the side with the sour cream and guacamole wasn’t just that, it had a bit of salad dressing on it too! Ever been part of the clean plate club? This place will make you a part of it so fast you will want to come back for more 🤩

Michael “Newmie” Newman: #Update 5/24/2022 — pupusas de queso para llevar! Que Rica Comida! Y no tan caro! 🤠 The best pupusas in the NW DC quadrant! This eponymously named “Little Corner” restaurant sits just enough patrons, including a few bar stools, to make a simple weekend lunch feel like a Fiesta con Familia! With a flair for Comida Latina, especially from El Salvador 🇸🇻, there is plenty of La Vida Feliz to meet everyone’s particular “el disfrute” wish. Pupusas, tacos al carbon, fajitas, nachos… the standard fare expected and well-glamored… and thusly prepared finely by a hidden kitchen that certainly possesses the culinary culture deeply ingrained. Mi Contessa had two chicken enchiladas (“rojas”) which she found to be quite delicious and served warm, not too hot. With the small salad (“pico de gallo”) and an illuminating beans & rice combo on the platter, her hope for a blessed Mother’s Day meal was realized. The can of ginger ale was a surprisingly pricey addition to an otherwise very, very good bargain lunch celebration at this hidden hacienda. For me, my enchiladas were filled with frijoles (currently necessity requires eating less meats, though proteins are crucially important). The tortillas themselves were the best part, quite refined and baked evenly. Nicely evened “queso” melted on top, with a bit less smattering of the salsa than i was hoping for. Still, quite flavorful, even with a slight disappointment over the refried beans wrapped up. (Not so sure, but perhaps not homemade but from a can.) Overall the meal was quite what one will want when seeking a simple meal alone or small group desiring traditional Central American cuisine. However, the happy vibe of this hard to find place must not be underestimated, and the two mesera gentlemen really enjoy doing the serving to please — a service not found easily as well during our Covidmess times. *** ⚽️ on the televisions also! … Barca o Real Madrid??? You decide, Caballero!*** 🤠✌️✌🏽

Shaughnessy Miller: I hadn't had pupusas in years and was craving them on my visit to DC. This hole-in-the-wall did not disappoint. I ordered the 2 pupusas, 1 tamal de elote combinación and the yuka frita. The food came out quickly and was super rica! Everyone was very friendly, and the music also added buen ambiente. Definitely stop in!

Logan Gore: Yum! Yum! Yum! It’s hard to find good and authentic pupusas that aren’t too greasy but this place has them! Sooooo good! I ordered two chicken and two pork pupusas. They are huge! I didn’t need four haha! And a side of fried plantains! Small hole in the wall very much worth visiting!!

Cory Laws: My kind of place. My wife finds us interesting eateries. It was late and we needed lunch. This was highly rated, within 2 blocks of our hotel, and we didn't even need to cross a street. It was almost empty when we arrived, but there was a steady flow of take out customers. Then eat-ins. I didn't think the nachos would be sufficient, but boy was I wrong. Well done, generous, fresh, and a Negra Modelo for each of us. The Salvadoran seafood soup delivered to the next table was both great looking and smelling. The customer took his time to enjoy it all. I'd love a return visit to try a "real" dinner, not just a huge appetizer.

Elliott McClelland: Highly recommended! This neighborhood find was a great surprise. Authentic Salvadoran food with friendly staff. The pupusas were great, and I loved the chicharrones. If you are in town near the convention center, give this place a try!

Gaelle Claude: Nobody does Salvadoran food like they do at El Riconcito Cafe. I first found out about this place from my boyfriend and his coworker who had been there once before. They raved about how great the food was but I honestly underestimated how good it was until I tried it. It’s a nice, small cozy restaurant with the authentic vibes. I have been there a couple of time by now but the first time I ordered chicken enchiladas which came with a side of rice and beans, guacamole and sour cream — 9/10. They have great portions for fairly low prices. I also tried their horchata with a shot of Hennessy; it was pretty good. The next time I went I got a chicken chimichanga which was also a hit. Their customer service is on point. This place is a must try! Overall the experience is 10/10

Melissa Davis: This place is phenomenal !!! the food is very delicious, the coffee and the natural juices tasted very good, the owner and the waitresses are very friendly and we found the place to be cozy and very clean.

EL TEJANO BAR & GRILL RESTAURANT: what do users think?


Angelis Sandoval: I went Saturday night & the DJ sucked he didn’t know how to mix the music correctly. The girls(bartenders / waitress) flirt their way with men & let them touch them and dance with them to get their tips. Very trashy. We had a hookah and since we were women obviously she just placed the coal on our hookah and walked away. ( don’t remember her name). She didn’t remove the old one or start it up for us. One of the girls that worked there was super wasted and she kept going behind the bar and dancing inappropriately with some man. Luckily her co workers saw she was wasted and pulled her aside. Wouldn’t come here again. Drinks were okay.I’m not sure how the food is since I didn’t have it. Terrible atmosphere.

E.J. Alexander (Lex): Nice little surprise. Word of mouth got me here. Stop by one afternoon to grab a bite before my flight. The place had a familiar vibe, restaurant by day, social lounge/bar by night. I would love to come at night to see the vibe. Back to the food, I ordered to Tacos and the dish in the photos, I can't remember the name but its pictured on their menu. Everything was great, fresh hot food. That shrimp dish was awesome, must try! Had a very authentic taste to it. The only thing that knocked down the 5th star was the communication. Waitress spoke very little English, normally its not a problem but we got charge for an extra side do to the miscommunication. Either way I will return.... maybe for happy hour! Oh and they had great drink prices!

Rod Pena: Great good looking girls. Very good customer service. They all are my favorites , however I recommend Alejandra 😍. Managers are fabulous, especially Iris 😘. Food also is very good, my favorite is the Steak and black clams cocktail. Have in mind that this is not a family place. And has a really good happy hour Monday to Friday 4 to 8 pm.

Isabelle B: I order a quarter dark chicken with 2 sides dishes and a margarita $10 a glass with no alcohol my plate came early but the chicken was not hot and my drink was no tasty I didn't really enjoy my food and on the top of that the music was so loud

Robertson Bassy: My friend ordered a shrimp quesadilla, and was given a chicken one. Normally don’t do this but the service should have been right the first time. Because she hasn’t eaten meat of any kind for a couple years. If you do plan on ordering from this place. CHECK YOUR ORDER BEFORE YOU LEAVE.

Alistair Nielsen: I simply loved their dishes. I always get good customer service there. The place is always clean and the workers are always super nice. Will come back again.

Kayla Hall: Was going to go here for bar and grill but when walked inside it was so loud, we decided to go somewhere else..

Joanna Lewton: I was disappointed the order was wrong (they sent a Perrier water instead of a diet coke) but because I ordered it from Uber Eats I didn't feel there was anything I could do. Restaurants- please check orders before you bag them!

Luis Buenrostro: 👍

Deonte Ambrosius: Certainly a spot worth stopping over, the food is good and fresh, the costs are affordable and it is always clean in here. Keep up the good work.

Las Placitas: what do users think?


C F: What a wonderful find! I was walking back from a hike and found this place. Super nice service and delicious food! I ordered chicken nachos and queso. Both excellent and I would order again. Also came with chips and salsa. The chips are those yummy thick chips and the salsa fresh. Got my food togo but they have a cute indoor/outdoor space with frozen margaritas and $1 can cokes. Prices very reasonable. Will be back!!

AK ALLY ARIE: It a quaint little hole in the wall with fantastic food quality service and very reasonable prices. From the outside you’d ride right pass it but as the old saying says “never judge a book by its cover. My family and I will definitely be returning soon.

Jeffery Moore: This place is a gem. The food, service, and drinks are reliably good and so is the price. The only complaint I have is their salsa varies in how good it is. It's never awful, but it's just not great sometimes. Don't let that spoil the rest of the meal -- it's otherwise great! Also they are dog friendly!

Victoria A: I wish I could give this place negative stars! The rice was unseasoned. The black beans not picture were also bland. Everything was pretty much lacking flavor. I am very disappointed with their food. Would not recommend. Save your money and eat somewhere else!

Nicole Thomas: Sorry.... 😞 The food was SO *DELICIOUS* I FOR GOT TO TAKE A PICK...!!!!😂😂😋😋😋Sat outside & enjoyed the atmosphere...!!! I had the chimichanga chicken and beef mixed!!!!

Kenny Blaaq: Accidentally, rolled up on this place riding my bike home. I loved that I was seated immediately. Service was fast and friendly. My margarita was excellent. I ordered a seafood burrito. I would order again and ask for less cheese. I will be back! Instagram @KenKooltho

Njeri Jarvis: Not a fan yet. I only got take out of nachos and chips and salsa so I don't think I can give a full review but the experience I had did not make me want to return. The other patrons seemed pleasant a d it was a beautiful day so that helped but, the staff seemed like it was a chore to take your order and provide service. No smiles, no pleasantries. Nothing, the feel was just Blah! Maybe I caught them on the wrong day??? The tortillas were good! The salsa is okay but was not spicy. The cheese on the nachos was not good. The prices were EXELLENT!!! I will try once again.

Lucy Romano: The most disgusting soup they could cook.on the menu it says Chicken tortilla soup, it is actually water with cauliflower heads, carrot and zucchini pieces and a whole tortilla on top.I do not recommend it to those who really know how to eat Mexican food.

Eric S: My mid- week afternoon visit was a blast! My tacos were tasty and freshly made... the portions were plentiful. You MUST have a margarita!

Meredith: The staff treats you like family and the food is delicious. The Las Placitas sampler, fajitas, enchiladas and nachos are some of our favorites. But the meal is not complete without a pitcher of margaritas or sangria!

Kimberly Jensen: My husband and I went to Ferman Bar & Grill last night and the food was fantastic! I really enjoyed the steak fajitas, which came with fresh corn tortillas. My husband and I will definitely go back soon.

Heather Potter: Rigo Ferman is an AMAZING chef so when I found out he was opening his own restaurant I had to go! I have already been here 4 times but the food is so good that I always forget to take pictures! Today I ordered chicken tacos and my friend ordered a chicken quesadilla. Excellent food and service as always!

Katherine Castro: Food is amazing and treat you like family. Really comfortable eating here and mostly since the food is so good 😫😫
