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've loved Calle Ocho since before they moved their location to the Excelsior Hotel. While I miss the vaulted ceilings of the old location, I still love the food. In particular, I love their Arepa appetizer with Ropa Vieja on top. I can and would eat this for every meal for the rest of my life. In general, the wait staff is pretty good. Our experience on this visit was not up to their usual standard."
