Latin American
More festive than a piñata stuffed with a mariachi band and twice as stylish, Calle Ocho’s lively crowd is amped up on Mojitos, Caipirinhas, Sangria and Spanish wine or beer and shows no sign of slowing down. Those not willing or able to holler over the salsa music retire to the two small lounge areas to commiserate. The bar area is a prelude to their Nuevo Latino cuisine in the dining room that will knock your taste buds for a loop. If you’re in need of a quick jump-start, Calle Ocho will get your motor running.

Everything was great. The only thing I would change is adding more food options.

I have been going to Calle Ocho since it first opened on Columbus Ave. I have never been disappointed in their decor, food and service. This third and new location is wonderful....a huge garden for distance eating.

The back yard garden was a delightful surprise. Nicely decorated with greens to camouflage the buildings. A nice change from street seating in this time of Covid. Food has always been authentic and fresh. Add some live music and it would be even more special!

Food and drinks were delicious! For appetizer we had the camarones, an that Puerto Rican rum glaze on the shrimp was amazing. For entrees we had Pollo a la Brasa , Costillas, and Cubano Classico with the chicken option. These are very big plates you could definitely share entrees with someone else and still be full, But over all the food was just delicious!

Lots of outdoor space with options of sitting in their front patio or back garden. Tuesday offers a sangria special, which includes a 3-course meal and unlimited sangria. 10 different sangrias to choose from. Staff was super friendly and made me feel welcomed. Food was extremely tasty and can't wait to go back again.

This was our first time here! We had heard about this place through a tiktok so I decided to bring my friends and boyfriend here. We had made a reservation at 2:45pm on a Saturday. It was extremely busy and we did have to wait a few extra minutes to be sat, even with our reservation. It wasn’t a big deal because we were not in a rush, but just a heads up. The server was slammed and you could definitely tell by his energy. They made sure we had plenty of water while we waited. Once the orders where in everything went much smoother. The food was amazing! The drinks were delicious! Everything was very affordable and we loved sitting in the back courtyard/garden. We will be back again! Hopefully it’s not as busy, but what can you? It wouldn’t be busy if it was a bad place to go. Thank you!

I'm still savoring this place days later -- it is a magical escape! Make sure to sit in the garden -- you will be transported out of the city and out of the pandemic. The prices are a little steep for the neighborhood but the quantities are huge -- easily 2-3 servings per dish. The service was prompt and jovial. Excellent cocktail selection. Overall, a treasure. Easily one of my favorite dining experiences in 6+ years in Manhattan.

I had the special pre fixe dinner which is available on Wednesdays and thursdays. My fiancé had the fired calamari which had a Asian sweet and sour flavor to it. I have the steps which came with shredded beef on top (ropa vieja) we had unlimited sangrias which were very good and definitely not watered down. I had the Cubans Classico and she had the pollo a la Brasa. The for desert she had the churros which had a delicious sauce that tasted like dark chocolate and a caramel sauce on the side and I had the flan with toasted thin coconut pieces on top and whipped cream with cinnamon on the side. It was the best Flan I ever had!!! I proposed to my fiancé at the other location when it was in a hotel lobby. The garden outdoor seating was very nice.

This place never disappoints. I’m glad they moved to this location so that they have the garden seating. Food was delicious, service was on point, their sangrias strong as ever (but sooooo goood). The only issue (and this is not the restaurant’s fault), with outdoor seating, you will have the New York “pets” coming out. Like I said totally unavoidable but if you are squirmish, make sure you dine when the sun’s still out.
