Saturday night in the city, the place is packed, must be good, right? Wrong! The restaurant is U shape, so you have two entrances with small tables lined up along the walls, very uncomfortable. Music was blaring, so you can't carry on a conversation. The staff is new because they could not even answer basic questions about the menu. Speaking... More

DId not have anything else, but the empanadas were great! Pork, Cuban and Hawaii .... Pineapple Mango and Avocado sauces were also great. A tasty treat for under $14.

A must get combo are the mojitos and empanadas! Reasonably priced and a casual environment good for catching up with friends or going on a quick date. Service is always very friendly and honestly, best empanadas I have eaten anywhere. Great variety too!

Came across this place by accident - I was craving an Empanada and the sign "Lime Jungle Empanadas" was invitation enough. Small place - good service. Being a Vegetarian, I found many items on their menu that could satisfy my Hunger. The Hell's Kitchen Jalapenos was excellent as was the Veggie Taco. The Sangria was OK as was the Greek... More

from the street it looked pretty clean and we were looking to get a quick drink. Well we ended up ordering empinadas and OMG they were the best I've ever had, not to mention that the margaritas were also among the best I have ever had. the gentleman that served us was friendly. Great experience, we will be back.

This quaint ninth Avenue restaurant satisfies any Mexican hunger. The margaritas are excellent and appetizers are second to none. They serve large portions prepare to take leftovers

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
