Latin American
More festive than a piñata stuffed with a mariachi band and twice as stylish, Calle Ocho’s lively crowd is amped up on Mojitos, Caipirinhas, Sangria and Spanish wine or beer and shows no sign of slowing down. Those not willing or able to holler over the salsa music retire to the two small lounge areas to commiserate. The bar area is a prelude to their Nuevo Latino cuisine in the dining room that will knock your taste buds for a loop. If you’re in need of a quick jump-start, Calle Ocho will get your motor running.

Really good restaurant. The food was delicious and the service was really outstanding. Our only complaint was that even compared to the typical noisy New York restaurant this was outstandingly noisy. So it’s not good for quiet conversation. But we’ll be back.

Very attentive staff. The food was excellent! Drinks had wayyyy too much ice. Made a 6p reservation, and glad I did. Started to pick up around 7:30. With kids in tow, it was the perfect time. All in all, we'd come back!

Wonderful Latin American food (Peruvian, Spanish, Mexican, etc.), excellent, attentive service, nice wine list, lovely ambiance. Good value. We had a late after-theatre dinner. First time dining there, we’ll definitely be back. A great uptown spot.

The food and service were great. Our table was ready right on time. We did not feel rushed to leave.
One member of our party said the Paiella was the best he ever had.

Fabulous. Our waiter was great and the food amazing. The guacamole was perfect. Camerones with avocado mash in an onion was unique and so tasty. And the seafood paella was great. I'd definitely try the churros with the bitter sweet chocolate sauce.

The Sunday brunch is well worth the $35. One entree and unlimited but reasonable amounts of sangria. The skirt steak didn’t quite have the flavor I was looking for but I would definitely go back and try something else on the menu.

I've been a fan of Calle Ocho for years, but this was my first time at the new location and it did not disappoint. We ordered several items from the appetizer and everything was good. The sangrias were on point and delicious. Hope to go back soon for the Happy Hour.

We loved our meal at Calle Ocho, and are grateful they were able to make some food especially for one in our party who cannot eat salt. Thank you!

Delicious food - - exquisite latin fusion recipes. Great chef, friendly and accommodating staff. Cocktails are good. It is a fun experience, but the music is a bit loud and you might feel pressure to free up your table watching people coming in with the hopes of getting a table. Reservations highly recommended!

Long time fans, first time in the new location. Packed on a winter Monday night was a pleasant surprise. The space is smaller so would probably recommend making reservations any time of day. Menu had only minor changes and kept the great quality as before. Deserts are still the only weak link.

The food was amazing! Very much recommend the octopus, tacos for two and calamari. The calamari was a little saucy, but still great.

We used to frequent their other upper west side location and are excited they've relocated and are open again!

I'm on the fence. My overall impression is that the noise level is SO loud that I couldn't enjoy my company or food. I never get why such a noise level is an attraction when one cannot hear across the table.
The service was good and so was the food. I had the salmon with brussel sprouts, which was tasty and my brother had the ropa vieja which was also good.
Brunch menu was very pricy too for what you got. I got the feeling I was paying for everyone else's "free sangria."
I liked the decor of the room -- very warm and nice.

Calle Ocho is an awesome Latino Nuevo restaurant. The new location is smaller but the food and customer service are spot on. There are a few changes to the menu such as new appetizers and entrees. The popular sangrias are now available on tap. The brunch price has increased by $5 but I am happy to pay. It was a long wait for the re-opening. When the weather is warmer, the restaurant will be able to accommodate more people in the garden. Food and service remains 5 stars. Welcome back, Calle Ocho!
