We arrived shortly after 6:00 PM to put our name in for the 6:30 PM seating. We were second in line and within a few minutes, there were 40 people behind us. We started with the pork belly and crispy fish appetizers. Both were amazing in the flavor and presentation. One of our daughters ordered the chicken and really enjoyed... More

I went with a group of seven. We were lucky and walked right in and sat at the bar. We ordered 5 appetizers - all of which were amazing. We each had different entrees - all of which were amazing as well. They change their menu depending on what is fresh and available. The service was awesome. The bartender went... More

The food was amazing!! We tried 5 different appetizers and they were all unique and delicious! The main courses were large and like nothing I've tried before! Gourmet, Latin style food! Awesome! Drinks were good!! Try the Muskam bull! It's a ginger flavored drink with Tito's vodka and lemon!!! dessert was an amaretto flan to share! A definite be back!

Used to be a special restaurant. Have not been back in 2 years and it seems to me that the restaurant is relying on the chef's past reputation. Had the empanada appetizer. Partner had the chorizo app basically a lonely sausage sitting on a small plate. Both were unimpressive. He had the beef stew for dinner and I had the... More

We have been going for at least 4 years once or twice a month. It is a great hang out if you can get a place in the bar. Food is great, highest quality and fresh ingredients. Everything is good but try the snapper or yellowtail.

We waited 1 hour on Thursday night at 9PM to get into Jose Enrique. Skeptical and curious at first, I was assured that our wait was not wasted. Excellent food, must have. Also, great nightlife scene right outside.

Just relax and grab a drink and wait the hour plus it will take to get a table because it is worth it. Authentic fresh delicious PR food. Sooooo good. Fresh fish. Churrrasco empanadas appetizer and the crabs over plantains. Wow. Don't miss. Very casual but good service.
