    Spanish-inspired menu with super fresh ingredients. Very reasonably priced (and tasty!) lunch menu with large portion sizes. Can't go wrong with a burrito or burger.

    Every time I come here I always get a burger. They have a lot of variety here and they are all great. The best fries in the world are here also. And be sure to try the homemade guac!

    Got manhattan burger, hollywood fried have chimichurri seasoning and parm, yum. Cubano seems like it's better as an app for 4 ppl then entree for 1

    Roast chicken with glaze and 2 sauces was great - juicy, tender, generous and served on a waffle with choice of side. Steamed swiss chard was better than it sounds. Good value for $17 most entrees.

    The food is a mash-up of Latin and American flavors, with dishes like Colombian cheese bread with red pepper cream, Peruvian salmon ceviche, Brazilian-style roast chicken, & seafood paella. Read more

    New.Chef Alex Garcia (The Melting Pot on The Food Network). Menu -> Casual, Latin-American fusion. Think burgers and tacos, along with tableside presentations for guacamole and whole roast chickens Read more

    Don't assume that this place will be bad just because it is in the spot where restaurants go to die - it was delish! Get the guacamole! Will definitely be going back to try more dinner options.

    Enjoyed the spicy guac, surf and turf with ribs and salmon, and burger was very good! Met the owner and he's a great guy. Will be back to support this new neighborhood spot

    The Cuban Classic for two is out of this world delicious, could probably feed 3-4 people (the leftovers are perfect for breakfast the next day...)

    Amazing brunch - the breakfast burrito was delish! And so was the market salad. Great Bloody Mary's also

    The fried plantains and pickled onion are not on the weekend brunch menu but order from kitchen with your Cuban sandwich.

    Burgers are some of the best in the neighborhood, and the fries are simply addictive. Decent happy hour deals in bar area too.

    One of best guacamole! The fish tacos were pretty good. The other 2 people I went w got Tuna melt which they agreed was not good but who goes to a Cuban restaurant to get tuna melts?

    Stay away from the breakfast burrito. Barely any bacon or guacamole and imitation cheese? . But the Huevos Rancheros is a winner. Waitress was really nice and gave us a free side of bacon. 8 of 10

    Great neighborhood place to people watch and eat a solid meal. The AG Classic Burger is possibly the best burger in the city and not overpriced.

    Definitely get the fancy guacamole. And the burgers. Then ask for the dessert menu- most creative display ever!

    The chopped salad is an excellent lighter option amidst the burgers and tacos. It's really fresh and delicious!

    So simple to get the free deserts. A good and pleasant point to take a break and stay warm in the winter.

    The service is slow and waiters don't know the menu. Considering it's an eclectic/fusion menu, you may need some guidance. In the end the food is OK, but generally unexciting

    Staff was nice but the service was atrociously slow. Bloody mary was great. They ran out of most menu items, so we re-ordered, then got all the dishes we ordered originally as well. Good lord.

    People just come here for the ambience. Neither strawberry fields nor cilantro daiquiri tasted like their name sake ingredients. Fries came out cold. Even IHOP can provide hot fries… Just saying

    Honestly, these are the best burgers in New York but no one ever comes to UWS. SO GOOD

    Surf and turf choices sounded good, were a bit lacking. "Jumbo Shrimp $11" for two medium shrimp. Hangar steak was tasty meat but under-seasoned. NY strip was a small chunk and bland. Just "OK."

    Paella was good but unlike a real Spanish paella. Ropa vieja is a Cuban dish but again an ok version. flan or was it bread pudding? Good service but clearing and mgmt of dishes was not

    This place is so-so. It's a great atmosphere but the food is lacking quality. My red snapper mini tacos were cold and the tortilla dough was chewy. The seafood in the paella was good but not great.

    Hot mess. Our waiter took our order 10 min after some people seated after us, and every table nearby had some sort of issue. Waited WAY too long for food, and it's mediocre. Will not be back.

    Service is definitely hit or miss. Sitting in the the sidewalk extension area is like no mans land. Sit "inside" if possible for better service.
