It was great to be back there. Always a fun place to eat and drink.
Food took long, too expensive n the food was not all that. I really could’ve taken my appetite somewhere else for half the money n tastier food-Sorry
Excellent food on restaurant week menu good choices. Garden setting is great. Friendly service.
We frequented Calle Ocho at its previous location and the food was outstanding. Though the ambience and the service was spectacular, the food at this new location left us a bit put-off. The food was bland and simply not tasty. Unfortunately, we were rather disappointed. We will go back for the drinks and a couple of appetizers, but not dinner.
Had a wonderful time celebrating my husband’s birthday!!
Back garden setting is lovely!!
The back patio is fabulous. It’s almost like being on vacation.
Food and service were excellent. The spiciness of the guacamole and the ribs was perfect. The noise level was elevated, which was the only drawback to the experience
Too loud (inside) but the Pisco Sours were great! Service was good; my only complaint was that the server tried to take my drink before I was completely finished...at the prices we pay for cocktails here, it's a big pet peeve of mine when waiters take the glass before you've completely finished. It seems pretty obvious to leave it, or at least ask.
Amazing food and service. The staff was friendly and attentive.
I haven’t been to Calle Ocho since the pandemic began. I am happy that they have moved closer to my home and the ambiance is just as beautiful as it was in the previous two locals. The food is just as tasty and the sangria is still great.
We had a party of three for my cousin’s birthday.
Paella was not good. Mussels were dry. Lobster was of poor quality. Others got pork and beef and was not enjoyable.
Been there several times for dinner or drinks. Always enjoy myself. Food is good also drinks.
Terrific food in abundant portions (we especially enjoyed the classico, both with ropa viejo and the chicken escabeche), a pleasantly spacious (although loud) dining room, warm and attentive service. A really great addition to the neighborhood.
The service was by far the best I’ve had in the city. Everyone was so nice and the food was amazing.
The food was delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant! Will definitely be back!
Calle Ocho's move to uptown is a success. A great summer hang
Much to my dismay, the food was not up to par to its former venue on Columbus Ave. My dish could have been from any Latino restaurant in the city. My husband’s “Cuban fried rice” was just rice with few spices. The chicken was flat as a pancake. Out of the four of us, the fish special was the best. But my friend said that she could have made it better.
Food was amazing. Slightly pricey but it is Jersey city
I miss the last location of Calle Ocho. This location isn't the same. That said, the food is very good, but the restaurant lacks the same atmosphere.
Calle Ocho always exceeded my expectations. The ambience was perfect, and the food exceptional. I will be back.
Great food, great service.
This was our first time back since the pandemic. The outdoor seating in the back garden was great as were the cocktails 🍹 The food was very bland though & the menu was pretty limited. No hot sauce or condiments on the table. As it’s close by, we may try it again at some point in the future - maybe it was a really off-night.
Always a great and pleasant dining experience at Calle Ocho!
Amazing experience and food. Will definitely be coming back!!
Calle Ocho moved from the hotel on 72nd st to 105th St. I don't necessarily like this location (both the area and the layout of the restaurant) but the service is the same great quality. The quality of the sangrias have gone way down since I used to go to the other location. It tastes like really cheap wine. If you're going for the brunch, I wouldn't recommend it but overall would recommend the food.
This is the perfect place for any setting it’s not too noisy, i felt comfortable enough to sit inside, the backyard is heated , the food as always was Amazing! The sangria is always a hit!
It was great. Drinks and food are amazing! Thanks
Calle ocho has always been a go-to spot for my husband and me!
Lovely sangria brunch, delicious food, tremendous and friendly service. The back garden is quite perfect, especially in the current climate.
I ate outside in the garden which has heat lamps. It was wonderful, even in cold weather. The food was delicious too!
Outstanding cuisine. Inventive and creative and well-executed. Very attentive service. Generous portions could be shared around the table. Warm outdoor heating lamps. Thoroughly appreciated our dinner.
Lovely backyard. Good food, nice sangria variety. Excellent service! I highly recommend this place.
Horrible experience. Would not return.
Our server Alberto made the entire brunch an absolute joy. He suggested the best drinks and food, and was so much fun. Can’t wait to go again!
Everything was lovely, there was a bit of a wait each time my party wanted sangria refills, but that’s honestly it.
Great vibes, food & service!!!
The restaurant's staff as well as the food, despite the pandemic, are very much on point. Thank you for a great night out.
I have been here several times and it has become a new favorite. Calle Ocho has delicious food and incredible service (special shout out to Lily - our amazing waitress). We ordered the arepas (addicted), guacamole (a must), calamari (yummy) two shrimp dishes (oh my goodness) and the ribs for an entree (my friend licked his fingers all night). Everything was excellent! We saved room for the churros and it was the perfect end to our meal. I highly recommend this restaurant!
