HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!

I live a few blocks away from here and started ordering from them this week. Friday night, I stayed in and ordered the ropa vieja w/ yuca fongo. It was actually pretty good, although there could have been a bit

This place is great! The food is delicious and reasonable. I usually order food to take out but every now and then I stop by for lunch or dinner. I have yet to be disappointed. My only concern is when you place and order for delivery make certain you have exact change. The delivery personnel does not usually have change for $20. Otherwise you're off to a great time, great food and great fun. Enjoy!

I just wanted to eat some fine caribbean style food with efficient prices and Tropical Sensation was it! The decor was very cool including the nice art on the wall and the amazing mural on the ceiling. I am big on good customer service and I was treated kind from when I entered to when I left. The food presentation is really creative and tasty MMM and the $5 mojitos are not that bad either! lol I can't wait to go back... Great place to go on a date or even if you just want appetizers and drinks... $9 Grey Goose drinks!!! This was my first message, but I had to share my experience.

I recommend the restaurant play some cool island videos on the TV rather than just random TV stations, but hey they've only been in business for 5 months :) Also, I recommend you brush up on your spanish to pronounce the name of the dishes, but they explain each in english

Best Spanish quisine on the upper west side. Staff is caring and understanding, they have your best interest at heart and are there to make sure that your meal is one to enjoy and remember. I highly recommend this site and hope that they could establish a chain of "Tropical Sensations" throughout the U.S. Please, by all means do come in and have a meal with the staff at this location and you too will see what I am talking about...

Okay for me to go out of my way and review a restaurant really means a lot but Tropical Sensation deserves it.
The food is extremely delicious and the price is incredible. No matter what your budget, you know you will get great food.
At first I was intimidated by the place because of its interior. The tables were all made with granite and the ceilings are all full painted to make you feel like you are in a tropical paradise. The place looked amazing. A lot better than the prior restaurant that was located there.
Eating here really made me feel good, and full. The servers were all kind-hearted and attentive.
EXTREMELY RECOMMENDED

Let me just say that if you are in for a night of good food and great ambiance then you must go to Tropical Sensation. I highly recommend the churrascote or chicken a la parilla which are both cooked over open fire and they both come with your choice of sides (rice and beans is a must). Also, you can order anything you don't see on the menu, and they will make it!! Perfect if you want to take out a date and have a good meal and not spend a fortune. Testing out drinks are also a must, especially the freshly made sangria! I personally like the flavored mojitos or their french martini's. Great location as well if you are near Columbia University or the northwest entrance to Central Park. Parking could be rough if you are getting there by car. # 1 train is nearby.

Pros: Attentive and happy servers, and good strong drinks.

Cons: Parking depending on what time you go there.

If you are looking for an amazing meal- I've found it.
Tropical Sensation may sound like the title of a drugstore novel or a stripclub, and the restaurant's colorful bright sign out front may look cheesy and cheap---- do not be fooled. This place serves the most delicious, authentic, high end for low cost caribbean food you are likely to find anywhere.
The staff is so professional and genuinely kind and warm. They know how to make you feel welcome. From the moment you walk in, the ambience envelopes you into it's fold, and you know you are about to enjoy a truly satisfying and special meal. You deserve it-- you were able to look past the faade and venture into this tropical culinary delight.
