I'm a big fan of Cuban food and drinks, so I was really looking forward to trying this place. I ordered one of the specials, even though they were priced slightly higher than the items on the regular menu. I thought it was rather bland, and even the accompanying rice and beans lacked flavor. The food was just "okay." Waitstaff was great though!

The restaurant is small and pleasant place. The service is quite fast and nice. Their cafe is excellent and you can also enjoy delicious meals. Sometimes it gets crowded.

It's a hole in the wall due to the size of the place, but the food is DELICIOUS!!!! Moderately priced and the drinks can be both decorative and intoxicating at the same time. A definite do if you are in the area.

The food here is very good. I always get this one dish of veggies and spanish rice. The prices are very reasonable, especially considering how tasty the food is. I also recommend the platanos. I am sure they are laden with fat, but it is well worth it!

Like the other reviewer said, the place is small, but I never felt uncomfortable and I have never had to wait for a table.

Two words: Coconut Mojitos

I was turned on to this place by a friend while working as a waiter down the street at a big corner restaurant (Nice Matin) which is way overpriced and way overrated.

This place is so much more and such a find for the Upper West Side.

Incredible Atmosphere and Cheap. I love this place!

Pros: Great Food, Cheap, Big portions, Cute Ambience

Cons: Service is not too great

My friend had talked up this restaurant to me so much that when she suggested it on Saturday night I jumped at the chance to go. The food and the ambiance did not disappoint - from the sandwiches the kids had, to the entrees we ordered, everything was great. Except for the service! We were served by two very rude waitresses who slammed every glass and dish they brought onto the table, and then got so caught up by hanging out at the bar that I eventually had to hunt them down to pay my bill. We came after peak time, so it's not like they were tied up with many tables. The owner wasn't there, as I am told he usually is, so maybe it was a "when the cat's away" type of situation.

Pros: Food, Price, Ambiance

Cons: deplorable waitstaff

We had dinner last Saturday night for a friend's birthday and the food was good for the price. The best part was the free tequila shot for the whole resturant. Not sure if they do this every Saturday night for they patrons, but it was definitely a plus.

Pros: Tequila, Food, Price

This resturant serves some great Spanish food. The thing that turns me off though is that the resturant is very small. I prefer to take food to go from this resturant.

This place is tiny i will have to say, but good things come in small sizes right?

My friend was raving about it and i said let me see whats so good about it. Well lets start with the place, very cozy, romantic, nicely decorated. I mean just adorable! The staff was very helpful and cordial. I was really enchanted.

I had i believe shrimp in mango sauce and it was just delicious.

This place is great for a date or have dinner with a few friends but not good for large groups. As a matter of fact, i am going again tomorrow to have good spanish food.

I love the food at Cafe Con Leche, but both waitresses last Saturday had the worst attitudes and were so rude I will think twice about going back again. They need to teach their staff how to treat customers and they'll get a lot more happy customers because the food is nice.

Ok, so the service can be a little spotty, but despite this Cafe Con Leche has good food, and decent prices. We go for the brunch quite often and are never disappointed. If anything simply go for the actual Cafe Con Leche it's delicious!

Don't know how so many could have had bad experiences here. I go all the time. I order out for delivery a lot too. It doesn't have the best service but its pretty good. The food is great. Try the Pollo Enchiladas. It's delicious. Or the Shrimp/Avacado salad. Oh yeah, and the coffee ain't bad either!

Had the worst meal of my life here. Really! No kidding! I ordered a pork chop that was as dry as the Sahara Desert and as salty as the Dead Sea! It was so bad I was convinced it was a mistake. I asked my waiter if this was how it was supposed to look/taste. Sad to say, it was.

This was a disappointing experience for me. Everything, from plantains to rice had cilantro in it. It gave me a headache. It's like they had to cover up the lack of flavor. Also, the seafood was frozen, along with the peas. Chorizo was a poor quality. Overall it was gross. Stick to the cuban sandwiches if you want something edible.

Upper West Siders love this charming, sunny Latin American cafe for its generous portions of authentic Cuban and Dominican fare as well as its reasonable prices. The varied menu includes empanadas and rice with Spanish sausage as well as a…
