Went there expecting this great experience and was disappointed the food wasn't that great for the price I could cook better than whoever was cooking that night and the prices outrageous for some tasteless Spanish food

Went on 5/23 for my birthday. Well I must say that I was impressed. I drive by this place everyday 2 x a day and never bothered to stop in, glad my first choice was closed on a Monday because I was in a food coma after this place. They serve you warm, toasty bread with a olive oil spread-... More

We always wanted to try it. It was great, nice mojitos, appetizers great. My husband got the oxtail and it was nicely done. I got the roast work and was good too. I like the bread with olive they give.

I have been dining at Mojito ever since I read a very positive review in our local newspaper about 5 years ago. I have recommended it to friends who have also enjoyed the food and atmosphere. The garlic bread with the olive spread is to "die for". The prices are fair, the portions are large and the food is consistently... More

This place is truly a rare gem in one of the roughest locations...but definitely worth trying out. As a tough critic of specialty drinks, I tried their Mojito with no more of an expectation but that of standard...but I was pleasantly surprised. It was so refreshing!!! And the food....you just have to try it yourself....Excellent!

I'm giving this review a three solely based on the passion fruit mojito. Deeeeelicious! My husband and I bought a voucher from restaurant.com and redeemed it last Thursday for our weekly date night. We were immediately seated by the waiter who failed to introduce himself and our drink orders were taken shortly after. We were the only patron there at... More

My first time here with a friend who has dinner here several times. Set in a very lovely space, although not handicapped accessible that I could tell - you have to walk up 2 flights of stairs to the main dining area. However, had a very enjoyable meal. Had carrot soup with shrimp appetizer, the Lechon (roast pig) w/side of... More

Food was great! Even though there were only two waiters taking all orders and drinks they were fast and so nice. I highly recommend it!

First, there was a baby shower going on the day we visited so they set up a few card tables and uncomfortable chairs right next to the bar for patrons. The food was mediocre. The food is better in my neighborhood Spanish restaurant. That was the good part. The waiter, although he wasn't rude, was nowhere to be found. I... More
