$1,300 in the garbage me and my family would have more fun burning it. I’m only giving this place 1 star because The appetizers were 2 small “family” platters of food for 18.. I will post pictures at the bottom of the comment The desserts were 6 pieces of tiny flans and 3 ice cream size scooped bread puddings combined for 18 people to share. They were totally on organized My aunt got there an hour before the dinner started and they still gave us crappy seating where we was s...itting on top of each other and could barely move our elbows. My sister told them it was a party of 18 and they only gave us seating for a party of 15 and had to squeeze three more chairs at 2 tables. The music was so loud that you couldn't have a decent conversation over dinner.. We had to constantly look for our server to get help.. then they had the nerve inclue there tip for $187. They make you pay for a prefix meal at $56 a person and they don't even include soda or tea with it.. very disgusted if you want home cooked food go to Boston Market...

We went there last year and good and service were much better. This time they moved the location, we entered into a dark club like entrance, reggeton way too loud for really early bird dinner, 4pm. The new place seem nice, however the lights were dimmed and when you looked the place is unfinished. The food was just ok, the family sized appetizer platter was small for the prize. They waiter never cleaned up the appetizer plates. The paella did not taste fresh. The bill was outrageous! Not going back. My local Colombianb Restaurant makes way better paella. The pasión fruit mojito was on point.

Ordered and paid for top shelf rum because I get violently sick with well and house rum. I asked repeatedly to make sure it was top shelf and they assured me it was. An hour after consuming my beverage I began experiencing horrible stomach pains, needless to say the next day was my wedding and I ended up throwing up more than 12x and instead of going to my wedding dinner ended up in the hospital completely dehydrated in a wedding dress and hundreds of dollars worth of hair and makeup!
Needless to say I will NOT be returning and bartenders need to understand the importance of being honest with their liquor especially If you’re paying 12-18 a drink!
Thanks!
A very sad bride

It's a decent and classy place to dine but, service is not that perfect cause they don't care people's safety and comfort. I noticed that it takes a while for them to clean up a vomit or wet floor that almost 7 people slipped and fell on the floor after I have told them about it . It took like 15 minutes before they came to mop the floor. Also, the waiter was not helpful to what I requested for my meal. The meal is decent but, it's not as it was before. The meal I had, grilled salmon was dry >>>fish was not tender and juicy.
That's the reason why I'm giving just a 3 , could have given them 2 ( the table that they have put us was cold, draft was coming into the window) , but the place was again , as I said, decent and classy with a good music ...

Went for my birthday, waiter was rushing us....wanted to stay after dinner but they were charging $270 for a bottle of Aguardiente!! Ridiculous, also asked if tips were included on the bill and per waiter the owners don't pay them any of the tips included on the check, waiter was looking for more tips!!! The Paellas we ordered were full of rice, 3 shrimps, 8 calamar and half tail of lobster....we knew is a price fix but come on put a little more seafood....

I’m only giving this place 1 star because our server was decent and the food was just okay. The appetizers were 2 small “family” platters of food for 18 people, the entrees were decent portions for the meat, although the sides were small, my mashed potatoes was the equivalent to one ice cream scoop, and 3 pieces of seasoned veggies 2 pieces of broccoli and 1 carrot smh. The desserts were 9 pieces of tiny flans and ice cream size scooped bread puddings combined for 18 people t...o share. The manager did eventually give the table 2 more dessert trays after realizing 18 people can not share 9 tiny pieces of dessert. Prior to selecting this as our venue to celebrate at we were in contact with Brittany regarding our reservation for my mothers 60th birthday dinner for 18 people for 2 weeks. She assured us that as long as we were celebrating a birthday, the birthday person of the party would get to eat free. Fast forward we get our bill after ordering drinks and food for a grand total of $1,225.26. We noticed the birthday person was still charged. We spoke with the manager Josh who now tells us we have to be celebrating the persons birthday 7 days before or 7 days after. My mothers birthday was January 13th and we made reservations for February 3rd because we had people flying out from Myrtle beach and Atlanta. The 7 days before and after policy was never disclosed to us when we called to book, when we spoke with Brittany on several different occasions, nor was it anywhere in my email confirmation. Josh the manager told me to speak to the receptionist Brittany (seriously! He directed me to the receptionist) since we spoke to her to plan the event and he remained completely unhelpful as a manager. When Brittany came she was very rude and her tone was arrogant and condescending. Brittany was clapping her hands in our faces and bopping her head back and forth with attitude REPEATEDLY saying “oh well, 14 Days is 14 days and 14 days is enough time, YOU should have asked me and I would have told you” After that the manager disappeared and Brittany just walked off. I can’t describe to you how disgusted, unhelpful, and understanding they we were. The lack of professionalism and attitudes the receptionist and the Manager exuded after we were spending nearly $1,300 at this establishment between food and drinks on Saturday night was mind blowing. Yes we paid the the money for my mothers birthday dinner, but It was really the principle of the situation and their lack of consideration on the information that was never disclosed to us, all we received was an “oh well too bad too sad” attitude. Needless to say after years of frequenting this establishment we will not be returning to this location that’s for sure. Make sure you get the fine print because they don’t take fault for misleading you or not providing useful information.

Made a reservation for 7:00 was seated within 10 minutes waiter was great food came fast the amount of food was hugeeeeeee!!!! After dinner the waiter gave us a VIP table in the club and complementary shots for my 12 guests spent 380 on a bottle of henny 👀 but I got shout outs all night and my guests had a lot of fun happy 34th to me!!! Thank you don coqui!!!!

I actually had a nice time.. First time there. I celebrated my boyfriend's bday with a party of six. Didn't have a reservation, but we got a table quickly. The food was delicious, not salty at all but well seasoned. The drinks were not strong enough, a little too sweet. The dj was on point loved the music. My boyfriend enjoyed himself, so I was satisfied. The waiter was great. & thank goodness for the $10 valet parking... Will definitely be returning..

Spent a lot of money on New Years here at this establishment and was extremely upset with the service and how late they were seating us for dinner. I reached out to them
Almost a week ago with regards to this was told i would receive a response and it has been 5 days with no response. After spending over $1200 on dinner and bottle service i will never come to this establishment again.

As a costumer for first time in this place i wanted to have a seat at their lounge and one of the security just approached me & my husband and said we cannot have a seat WTH??? Last time i’m visiting this creepy place...as the security guard said it is a dirty place; yes it is a dirty place to go ���
