    We had a great table and great service. Unfortunately the food was a bit of a miss. The ceviche and the pulpo were subpar. The paella and the pulled pork were really good.

    This was the first time trying Qué Rico Tapas Bar and are we sure glad we did. The place is absolutely gorgeous. The drinks were delicious and the food was spectacular. Having just been to Miami last month, and having eaten some of the best food of my life in Little Havana, Qué Rico Tapas Bar was very reminiscent of my experience there. When I checked out the menu online before making the decision to go, I saw they had Tostones on the menu and that's what sold me I would highly recommend this restaurant. The service was 10/10 as well.

    Not sure why they call this a Tapas Bar; it is so much more! It features all kinds of South American cuisine. We just had the ceviche, empanadas and octopus with potato as we weren’t super-hungry. Everything was incredibly fresh and flavourful and the margaritas were delicious. Will definitely be back. The room is delightful and the staff super friendly and attentive. Can’t say enough. It was my first time and my friend’s 3rd. I can see why she likes it so much! Great job!

    We had the Ceviche Mixto, Eggplant Rolls, and the Tacos. All excellent! Though, they did get cold quickly because they were served all at once. A minor issue, nonetheless the overall experience was wonderful! For dessert we had the flan de coco. Very good! Thank you to Froi for his great service. Will definitely come back to try the rest of the dishes.

    We just stumble upon this place and were pleasantly surprised. Had a reservation for 5:30 on a Saturday and were greeted right away when we got there. Waiter was very attentive and recommended the house Que Riko Jalisco (there version of a margarity) and it was great, I ordered a second one. For apps we had the Croquetas and the Ceviche Mixto, I liked the Ceviche while my family liked the Croquetas. For dinner we shared the Pescado Frito and Ropa Vieja and both were delicious. I would definitely recommend this place. A neighborhood gem

    This was my second time here and it was exceptionally better then the first. We were a party of 8. Our server Froy was fantastic. He was so patient while we all discussed what we wanted to order from the vast menu. He told us the portion sizes for each tapas so we knew how much to order for sharing. He was friendly, positive and gave me the vibe he loves his job. The ceviche mixto, croquetas, manduro con rico queso all tasted amazing. Froy recommended the tres leches for dessert and it did not disappoint. Thank you for a lovely evening.

    The staff rushed us to leave. It was 10:30 pm on a Saturday. I understand it was just us in the restaurant, we were going to order desserts when they told us the kitchen was closed ( with no warning) and brought us the bill. Been there a few times always had a great experience. But this time was not it at all. Did not feel welcomed, lack of communication, service close to none existant.

    I live across the street and have always been curious about this restaurant. As a Latina I am familiar with the dishes ordered. I ordered a ceviche, pupusas and churros de dulce de leche. Upon entrance we were greater and seated, while the server brought over a complimentary alcoholic beverage with chips and guac (still warm tortilla chips). Neither of us drink so we opted out of what appeared to be a tequila and lime shot. The ceviche was good but not anything special. The amount and presentation for the price was valid. The pupusas we’re almost a hit. The pupusas themselves were miniature in comparison to what the actual size is supposed to be. I ordered the cheese and beans (mixto) and added chicharrón. That is where I was highly disappointed. So, not only are my pupusas the size for a doll to eat but now the $4 of pork belly is dry, chewy and I was unable to chew through it or even swallow. That ruined the entire experience. The tomato sauce tasted like pizza sauce and not authentic to the Salvadorean gastronomy. The coleslaw was edible but for some reason spicy which I have an intolerance to, and I was unable to eat. Then came dessert; the churros were still warm which I appreciated but they were unevenly cooked. Some parts felt like eating a soft pancake. The place is small and there was only one other table but the music was so loud I couldn’t hear my partner acrosss from me. Overall the experience was not what I was hoping for when bringing my Caucasian partner to a multicultural restaurant. The service was phenomenal; the waiter, the hostess.. everything from the decor to the ambience and the music was great, but I wouldn’t go here to eat again.

    Absolutely poor food quality, felt like we were served yesterday's food. Food was also cold and not hot at all, only ate 3/4 of it left the rest. Washrooms are gender neutral so prepared to share with all peoples when going into the restroom. Place is very LGBTQ friendly and it shows with all the pictures on the wall. Servers took long with our food and service. Overall 1 star, will not be returning.
