this place is a great date spot, been here a couple of times, nice music, nice waiters, overall good.
the cons: sometimes this place closes down suddenly then reopens, must be a tax or Rent issue with them.

I've been to Largo a couple of times since moving to the neighborhood. At night, it's just fine -- good service, good food, nice bartenders. However, I went there for brunch last month and had a totally different experience.

My friend and I got there at 10:30, not realizing they didn?t open until 11? so we came back promptly at 11 and were the first ones seated. However, several folks came in after us, and no one took our order until 11:15? and then we didn?t get our food until 11:45!!! This was especially ridiculous considering we just ordered eggs. Their reason was that there was a large group who?d all come in together for a special event in the back room? well, if they knew that was happening, they should?ve had more staff in there that day ? or had them come in earlier so they wouldn?t be slammed right at 11 AM! So ridiculous. I don?t know if I want to try them for brunch again.

Pros: Food is good, location is great

Cons: Terrible brunch service; drinks on weekends are as pricey as downtown

I had brunch here one sunday and the food was great. It was my first time here and it impressed me. I had the steak and eggs dish with homefries. Mmm! The steak was marinaded and tender. The prices weren't bad. I'd definitely go again

This amazing gem on Harlem's westside is slated to reopen first week of April. Don't miss out on its return.

Cafe Largo is one of the best, if not THE best restaurant for an enjoyable and reasonably priced evening in the city. The food and ambiance are welcome respites to the students in the area colleges, the yuppies and executives from the City as well as families just looking for a break from the rat-race! Fabulous!!!!

Pros: a step off the subway, very reasonable

Cons: tough parking

.

Not only is the food terrific, but you feel at home. On any given day you'll find the owner, Mark, his wife, his mother or any number of family members to welcome you into this incredible space. The food alone is worth the trip, but the atmosphere is priceless.

I have enjoyed every dish I have eaten here, but my favorite is the chicken alla vodka! It is quite delicious, and worth every penny. I have never eaten at the restaurant, but the delivery is fast, and the food is always piping hot! For a nice meal at home, try this place!

Largo provides stylized versions of Spanish dishes that will definitely please. Lentil soup was hearty and full flavored, arroz con pollo was full of flavor and well seasoned, skirt steak was melt in your mouth delicious, and I especially recommend the flan, a South American version that is thicker and creamier than the usual fair. Family members help run the place and they provide a friendly and very accommodating atmosphere. This is a welcome stop in the uptown area and we3ll worth the trip.

Cafe Largo offers a great menu with a Dominican twist. I've been there a few times and have never been disappointed - everything is really good and well-presented. The service is quick and friendly and the atmosphere is warm, comfortable and inviting. I will absolutely return and recommend others try it.

I must admit that I don't usually travel above 115th, I'm a student at Columbia and tend to stay in the neighorhood or go downtown. I met friends here for dinner and the food was wonderful, from appetizer to dessert (the flan is a must) and the service very friendly. I'll be going back soon.

I just had my birthday dinner here with 14 of my friends. The food was great, the service was friendly and the drinks were out of this world!!! I wanna go back next year.

Cafe Largo creates an oasis where one can feel right at home AND get better food than Mom could cook! Upon entry you are taken away from the cement jungle of the surrounding streets and absorbed into an atmosphere of simplicity, charm and warmth. The staff (or one of the owners - Marc and Stacey) welcome you at the door and find a table that suits you... Whether you're on a first date or with your family of 6 kids, you will be seated at a table where you can all feel comfortable. But let's not forget why we're there in the first place: the food. The calamari appetizer was out-of-this-world... The food is so good that you end up foresaking your diet and eating the entire large portion!!! Also DELICIOUS: the Sirloin with Steak and Mushrooms, the Chicken and Rice and their special "Pollo Largo".

I've lived in the neighborhood surrounding Cafe Largo for about six months; tonight I had dinner for the first time at this gift. It had never occurred to me that it was possible to have an amazing meal, with incredible ambiance and friendly service in this neighborhood. Who knew...my boyfriend and I have two words...LOVED IT!

Whether a dish is served traditionally or not, I do believe you are to oblige to the wishes of the customer. I know because I used to be a waitress several years ago. I was not offered a new dish, nor any solution to my problem. That's the only reason I felt compelled to write a review and, now also, a response to your misleading response. I think my high rating of your food and ambience indicates my fairness, but it's extremely important that your waitstaff be properly trained to avoid negative feelings being associated with your otherwise nice establishment. Word of mouth is the best advertisement you can ever score.

The worst dining experience at this potential-filled restaurant. Good service stopped for my friend and I after being seated immediately in a virtually empty restaurant. It took 10 minutes for our table to be approached, 10 minutes for our drinks, and worst of all 40 inutes to be served our entrees. all this waiting was not enough. According to the manager and the waitress, the chef refused to remove the tails off the shrimp because the cheese had been melted already and it proved to be too daunting of a task. At least we got comped a $5 flan, which in all fairness was very good. The waitstaff and management should all sit down for a course in Customer Service 101.

I have frequented Cafe Largo on many occassions in an attempt to give the restaurant one more chance to improve it's service. However, every time I visit Cafe Largo I have to constantly remind the waiter for my drinks, call upon the busperson from their daydreaming to bring water and finally find someone to pick up my finished plates that have been sitting on my table for at least 10 minutes. The waiters/waitresses don't even inquire "Is everything satisfactory?" 90% of the time. Please note that I think the food is great but please do your patrons a favor and conduct service training seminars.

I live right on 137th street, and you could say that I'm like a regular at Cafe Largo. There are two wonderful reasons . First is definatly the food, it is just (how can I put it),unbeliveably delicious and not to mention divine, they really make you feel at home. The second reason is once you go in there you feel like you have traveled to a differant place, the atmosphere and the people there are so inviting. They are a breath of fresh air when you need a small getaway.
