My husband and I celebrated our birthdays there with family & friends. We received outstanding service and the food was excellent. The atmosphere was great and the music had us dancing all night long! Thank you 3 Vinos for making our birthdays memorable! Steven and Jen Denis

Food was good but some food was cold even though it was not a busy night, the drinks were pretty good.and after 10 the restaurant turns into a club and they have great music, and seems like a pretty mixed crowd.

We have been here several times and they never disappoint. Service is great, they keep the mimosas flowing. They seem to always have a good salsa band playing.

Very loud! Food was okay. I guess for the price we paid, we should've expected it to be great. Also very messy. Will not be back for brunch!

I had reservations for Sunday brunch at 11:45 for 4. They didn't seat us until 12:15...We stood there waiting for our table to be ready for over 30 minutes. There were plenty of vacant seat available for us. We just stood over the table waiting. This was my second time going to brunch. Not sure if I will return.

It should have been clear that on Sunday only buffet dinner would be available. The food was not up to par, even when it was only $8 per person. The drinks were very pricey in comparison. Good place to dance only, have dinner somewhere else.

Bouncer in the front was disrespectful, rude and he DISCRIMINATES, so please dont waste your time. Jan, 25 2019 we made reservations to celebrate my husbands bday, we had dinner & later that night the rest of our party would arrive - So here it goes. Bouncer refused to allow his friends in due to "dress code". They were dressed according to the requirements online but when they got to the door they had a different dress code list which didn't match the one online.
Seems shady to me. Bouncer stated they must wear a "Collared shirt" clearly it doesn't say it on their website. When my husband asked to speak with management, bouncer said, I'm the one who makes the rules managment is not here. (Lie). His friends decided to leave. Later that night we spoke with management. This man tells my husband he rather not deal with customers who work in law enforcement. Yes my husband is an officer. Much more was said but I will not go into detail since I wasn't there to hear everything. But WOW. Who says that?!?! discrimination at its finest. They treat people like crap. The security is on a straight power trip. After talking with managment he then offers to buy us drinks for all the trouble. Seriously!! No thank you, we dont want your free drinks. We just ask to be treated fairly. That simple. You guys are so unprofessional we have NEVER encountered this kind of treatment. Eventually 3Vinos will go downhill if this continues.

We will never come back, and will be sure to share our experience with many others

We’ve been to 3 Vinos in the evening but wasn’t aware they had a Brunch. We tried it and were Satisfied. Definitely going back. Our Waiter Lester was on top of his Service and didn’t let our Mimosa Carafe stay empty. Our glasses were always filled to he rim. The Live Music was nice. We even got up and danced. Two Thumbs Up for this location!

The Arroz Con Pollo was pretty much fried rice. Not enough chicken not a meal. It was listed as a dinner item. Or bar maid was rude to me. Then she found out that I was paying the bill and she changed her attitude. I should have given my tip to our waiter and not her. Our waitier was great.

First of all not being able to contact the restaurant to make a reservation is ridiculous, I made the reservation online and when I went back in to change the time, the online tool stated that the 8pm reservation had been taken. When we arrived at 3Vinos there was no one there in the restaurant side and by the time 8pm rolled around I thought the place would be packed but again no one showed up. There were a total of 3 couples including my boyfriend and I by 10pm one couple whom ended up leaving because they sat there for 15-20minutes and didn't get any service. If people were to call in to check availability you would probably have more dinner guests. Aside from that the food was mediocre. It wasn't anything to brag about. The chicken and black bean soup lacked flavor and my boyfriends steak was edible. The papa rellenas were ok, the potato is very gooey, not like the traditional papa rellenas made by my family. The sangria for two was very dramatic in that huge glass however it lacked the little pieces of fruit you'd expect to find in sangria, we got a whopping 3 slices of orange in the glass and like 10 lime and lemon wedges that decorated the glass. We were really disappointed.

The only reason I was there was for the Salsa dancing. It was my first time eating there as a group. The music for dancing was great. The food prices were on the high side for the quality of food but the food was ok. I had better Cuban food elsewhere.

Always looking for a good dance and hangout for couples. This place was great with a great atmosphere for couples, groups, and singles alike. The crowd was a great age mixture and ethnicity mixture and the well rounded mix of music was outstanding. It hit all genres with up beat hot spot music. The live band early in the evening was also great for the mix. We came in late for dinner but the staff really helped in getting us served before the kitchen closed. The place was very good with ambiance for socializing and boy did it get packed! Now we understand why the tables were cleared and moved out of the way for mostly standing and dancing room. And hey this place is air conditioned, how many places i have gone and it's a wonder why they can't afford A/C. This will definitely be our new place to go!
PS. guys get the dress code before you go.

We came here to celebrate my co-workers birthday. We had reserved a table for 10. When we got there the whole staff was very rude. Especially the security guards. We did not feel welcome at all. The food was okay and the drinks we're very expensive. To top it all off we were then rudely removed from our table, wiithout any notice. I do not recommend this place at all. Very disappointing.

I ordered the churrasco meal.The steak did not have much taste.I assume it was seasoned at the moment instead of 24-48 hours ahead.The black beans were delicious,but the rice was a little mushy and a very small scoop compared to the black beans.The food was just ok.

I was very disappointed with the service. We went for mother’s day and it was our 1st time there. Not a great 1st impression at all! It took us to ask 3 servers for water and more mimosas. Thank goodness the food was good but the service was awful! Under staffed

It was okay. The staff was very nice but everything else was lacking.
We went for Mother's Day brunch and as much as you could see they were trying, there were several factors that made it not enjoyable.
First, they set us for a table for three on what must be a card table with a table cloth over it. That meant anyone on the side (me) had their knees squished against a bar of the table the entire meal and I was also then blocking off the aisle (no one could get between me and the chair behind me to pass.
The buffet had quality tasting food but for a special occasion brunch, there was an extremely limited number of choices of food items.
The band was playing which is kind of fun but it was incredibly loud.
The staff however was generous and kind. I just think a larger buffet and LESS tables would have made this a much more enjoyable experience. Especially considering the price. It wasn't bad but I would never rave about it and I wouldn't return, at least not for the buffet. I would probably enjoy it as a Friday night bar night with dinner. I'm guessing in the evenings it would be a really fun place.

The place was OK. WE expected more Latin live music after hours. Not a full time DJ which in part was OK.
Food was Mediocre. Had to remind them about our deserts. Felt rushed to eat our food because everything had to be picked up by a certain time for the "CLUB". And charged for drink we never received. Staff was rude. IT was obviously cold outside and we were seated close to patio door which they blatantly kept leaving open until i had to close it like 10 times before they got the hint. Not very bright or courteous employees. Will not be back or recommend this place.

Date with My Wife.
Try something New.

The Place could use a little Better Cleaning but was not Bad at all.

Wife had the Salmon that was Very good
I had the Flank Steak that was Slightly over cooked. Was not asked how I would like my Steak cooked so I’m guessing they over cook all. Even though, it was quite good.

After Dinner we sat at the Bar for Drinks and live Band.
Waited over 20 without a Bartender asking if we would like a Drink. Had to call one over to order a Margarita.
Bartenders seemed very busy Chatting with each other. 🤨
They had a Band playing Salsa this Evening that Started off Mellow and Relaxing. “Wish I had a Drink “
Then they started playing and were Very good. Had a few People Dancing 🕺 we didn’t stay for the Club after. I’m sure it is good Dancing with this Band.
