A crowded restaurant is normally a good sign, but in this case it was nothing more than part of an elaborate facade. The food was well seasoned, and the presentation was above average, but the quality of the meal was questionable. A number of our mussels were fanned out on the plate unopened, a clear sign that they should not be eaten. Now, a one or two isn't really cause for alarm, but when half of the mussels are inedible it brings up a question of quality. There was also the small issue that our shrimp was burnt, not pan-seared. Oh, and the atmosphere. The twinkly lights and modern decor did nothing compliment that fact that you had to yell over the crowd to be heard by the person sitting next to you. If you're going to try to have the atmosphere of a sophisticated restaurant, you should carry on that ideal with spacing and volume. Honestly, the best part of our evening was our very attentive server, who, with the help of additional staff, managed to successfully care for our rather large party. Overall, I would have to say that we paid a bit too much for a standard meal, but at least we were with good company.

I went to this restaurant three times already and the food was always very good. The atmosphere is pleasant at least the times I went. Service was good. I recommend it for a date or with family!!

Service was good, our waitresses Olga was friendly and helpful. The problem was with the food, way too salty and cold. I have Lechón Montuno, I couldn’t eat it. It came with greasy sweet plantains, dry and tasteless rice & black beans, plain piece of boiled corn dough. The yucca save the dish, well there is no way to mess up a boiling yucca. My friend had the Bandeja Tipica, and aught, nothing is worse than cool grassy eggs. To end the nightmare we ordered coffee; my café con leche was cool, and my friends get their coffee 20 minutes later. I won’t be back for dinner, drinks and appetizers are okay. The mojitos, the empanadas and the ceviche are pretty decent.

I am Cuban, between Cuba, Paraguay, Madrid, and Haiti, I have 30 years experience in fine and not-so-fine Latin, Spainish, and Carribean cuisine! This place hits the nail on the head! Delicious, fresh, tasty, and authentic! The ambiance is mice, service is perfect, and the food is to die for!

I am a complete foodie and had never had paella, a friend of of mine insisted Mixto had the best, he is probably right! Very authentic, no chips and salsa, instead you get warm, buttered, toasted, and moist pieces of bread...delicious! Next, the expansive mojito list was impressive, with at least twelve varieties, with at least the coconut, tropical, guava, and classic (everyone we had tried), being fresh and perfect! After that we had a shrimp and pepper-filled plantain appitizer, which was very robust, it's authentic so no cream-based sauces. Then the paella, perfect, hands down one of the best meals I have ever had, if all paella tastes like this one, then I have a new diet! It was not soupy, fluffy rice, saffron, a little garlic, and loads of fresh seafood; including mussels, clams, fish, shrimp, lobster, smoked chicken, and the best scallops I have ever had. You owe it to yourself to dine here! Nice, relaxed, wooden interior also!

Let' see--the night we went, there was a family outing at the bar with young kids on a Friday night!! ). We couldn't have a decent conversation, and I have already forgotten what it is we ate.

No, really. With queso, carne, and all that good stuff--I've never been disappointed with this appetizer. In fact, I will probably be dreaming about it tonight. The sandwiches are monstrous, especially for the $8-10 price range, and their chicken with cheese and sweet tomales is perfect. Drinks are great during happy hour as well. I've been here a few times and I've always enjoyed it. Service has never been an issue, and the staff always seem to be on hand for whatever you need. Definitely try out Mixto!
