If you are driving and planning on street parking leave your house a little earlier because parking is pretty tight. For your convenience, and for nominal fee, there's a parking garage down the block. Now what to order: shrimp mofongo is lip smacking good.

Food was very bland & tasteless. Worse mofongo I've tasted in NYC & not even close to DR. The sangria was ok 👌🏻 & service was good. Bathroom 🚽 is disgusting & restaurant is a little run down. Was actually surprised because I've heard good things about this place. Totally disappointed. Music 🎶 was good though.

Wife took me here as a surprise. My wife is Dominican and was first time I was exposed to Monfongo even my wife said it was nothing special. The drinks were a bigger hit than the food.

The portions was good enough for the prices which I pretty much felt comfortable with! The service was excellent, starting with the host and servers! The place was packed and people coming in and out!... More

Prices were higher than I expected, but they give you a lot of food for your money. Plan to take leftovers home. the taste of the food was great.
