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.

"I made my reservation several (at least 5) weeks in advance for my birthday on January 17th. I figured if i did it in advance i could have a nice Sangria Brunch with a bunch of my friends to start the birthday celebrations. As i was making my reservation (i started at 6 people at 1PM) the closest availability it gave me was 2 people at 2.30. i tried a few more times to change the amount of people to no avail. I even called to try and change it...no dice. So imagine my disappointment when i arrived with my ONE friend at 2.30 to find the TWO tables next to us completely empty for the next 2 hours.
The food was great, the Sangria was even better, they brought out a complimentary desert with a candle...and that was fabulous. BUT...I still would have liked to have had the rest of my friends there with us...especially since there was apparently PLENTY of room.
I'll be back again for sure...maybe I'll make my reservation now for April. :-("
