The best resturant – I bestfriend took me to this resturant and we had the blast. The Bartender there was the best. She was very nice. I just cannot remember her name..I will be there again...
Good Spot in the Cut of BK – I saw this eatery on a cooking TV show hosted by G.Garvin about 2 years ago. I was excited by one of the dishes he featured in the show. A rice dish with LARGE Shrimp & black beens and the mojitos looked refreshing. Recently a friend that lives in Brooklyn located and we went this weekend, and I would like to say WE cleaned our plates!!! I have not been out to dinner to a place where I ENJOYED the ENTIRE meal!! Even the bread was tasty, and the dipping sauce was deliciously spicy. The only small drawback was the dessert, it needed to be served thawed,not frozen. I will go back again!! Also the drinks were good but could have been a little stronger, I only had one but I think if I had another I would have been good. Mojitos is a nice date spot as well as a casual spot to grab a good, filling, bite to eat!!! To ALL: Go U will LOVE it!!!!
BEST Cuban spot out there! – From the moment you walk in the door you're hit with the amazing aroma coming from the kitchen leaving you anxious to look through the menu and quickly place your order. I loved the decor of the restaurant. Everything from the paintings by the artist named Velez to the exposed bricks, down the the lighting against light blue walls. I truly can not say enough about how delicious the food was. The portions are large and the tasty. You have to make sure to ask for the Mojito Sauce. It goes with everything from bread to rice to fish. You can even buy a jar of it at the restaurant! Can't wait to go there again!! Its officially one of my favorite spots. Looking forward to a Manhattan location in the future.
Terrible Service High Prices HOW DO THEY STAY IN BUSINESS!!! – Every time I call I am on hold forever or they just don't pick up. When you do finally get some slacker on the line they act like they could care less about your patronage and often get the orders wrong. It's a shame because the chef's are doing a great job in the kitchen but the staff and management could use a huge face lift. Would not recommend this place it seems like a lot of work for a meal and it's expensive as all get out!!!
No Place for Betty & Veronica from Fort Greene – First the good news. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and the drinks were good. But...No place for Betty & Veronica :( My mom lives in Fort Green Brooklyn where I grew up. This past weekend while I was driving around with mom we came across Mojitos on Washington Ave. We were so excited to see a Cuban food restaurant in the neighborhood. Being Puerto Rican we can certainly identify with Cuban food and we certainly know good spanish food when we eat it. When I came home I looked up the reviews on the internet and they were not favorable, but I still wanted to give the restaurant the benefit of the doubt until I tried for myself. Well my sister Veronica just came in from Virginia Beach to visit with my mom and they telephoned me to let me know they tried the restaurant and the food was terrible - (they did say the margarita & mojito drinks they had were good). Unfortunately I hadn't told them about the unfavorable reviews in time to prevent them from going. Latinos are used to large portions being served on our plates - The portions were small...we say only big enough to fill a cavity (that's not a good thing). In my excitement on coming across this restaurant I also telephoned my sister Wilma in New Jersey to tell her about Mojitos. I have to save her. I had really wished their restaurant would satisfy us since we do need a good spanish food restaurant in downtown Brooklyn - However mediocre is not ok, it has to be a GOOD spanish restaurant.
Too Bad Soo Sad
Cuban Restaurant in Brooklyn – My boyfriend and I live in Ft. Greene and he is Cuban so we were excited about a Cuban restaurant. The food is awesome, the ropa vieja is ridiculously good. The thing is, every time we order, something goes wrong. The first time, we got the wrong food, then called and they sent the right food right away. OK. Fine. The next time, I paid by credit card over the phone and he told me 20 minutes. Well, 40 minutes later I call to check on my delivery and he told me it's ready, we have been waiting for you to pick it up. Why would I pay by phone for pick up? Like I said, the food is really good, but I hope they get the service part together.
Great customer service-friendly and warm – I've been to Mojito's Restaurant on many ocassions. The first time was with one of my best girlfriends.The waiter attending us brought the pan (bread) and dipping sauces right away. The bread was warm, and the sauces were
at turns sweet or spicy. My girlfriend and I shared the coconut shrimp which was sweet and crunchy on
the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. We had drinks too! A mojito for her and a tequila sunrise for me-delicious and refreshing.
The third time I went(and this is the standout), I took my boyfriend for his birthday. It was about 5:30 on a Friday, and there was a quiet buzz there-not quite busy but not exactly crazy-it was the before dinner crowd. We were seated right away, and again, our friendly waiter brought out that delicioso bread and the dipping sauces. We wanted to try
something new so our waiter suggested the coconut mojitos-when they came oh my gosh they were soooo good!
My boyfriend had the salmon bathed with coconut sauce and I had the tilapia-we were both looking at each other
in amazement at how both fish dishes were so tasty, moist and fragrant. Both of these dishes were prepared by a visiting chef-and when we complimented the chef to our waiter-the waiter brought her out to meet us!
I love this place,the decor has antiques and collectibles on the walls, and the chairs and tables are wooden with a
well worn patina. The bar area is cozy and invites people to socialize.
The waitstaff is gracious-the attention is timely and the food is delicious! The chef was excellent and I wish to
goodness I could remember her name!
This will not be the last time I visit-I love this place and recommend it highly!
Very nice makeover! – I went to Mojito a few times over the last couple of months. They changed the decour a little bit(I love the open windows), and they also introduced a new menu. The menu is shorter(not so many choices anymore, and my favorite red beans are gone), but the quality of food is amazing. Tilapia was replaced by Cod, which is sooo much better, and the Ropa Vieja is made of short rib now adding flavor and texture to this classic. They took Jumbo Shrimp off their main dish menu, but just ask the server, and you can still get it as dinner(it's in the appt now). Every time I went they had interesting and very tasty specials, the chicken stew, and the red snapper to die for...One thing, and I guess it depends on the bartender, sometimes the wait for drinks was 2 long(got appetizers before), and when they came out they were nothing as they used to be. I want mint and limes in my mojito, not just pure rum, and when it comes to martinis, well, if you're a bartender in NYC you should know how to make them. I usually go on the weekend, and I've never had a bad experience with the service. There is always someone at the door greeting people, and their waiters know the food, and are very attentive, but not intrusive. Overall great place to have a birthday party or a romantic dinner, but I wish they brought the candles back; I like the dim lights, but reading the menu can be difficult. Four stars this time, going strong on five with a few adjustments.
coconut sauce 2 write home about. – talapia & shrimp n coconut sauce is a meal i sink my teeth in when i frequent ly show at this cozy little joint.i never had a bad experience there.the people r great,and the customer service is fantastic top shelf place.
A little taste of home – I have been at Mojito several times since I've moved into the building. Food has always been fresh and tastefull.
They had a little change on staff and service quality had dropped a little, but i have been there yesterday and it seens that they are working on that. we had this brazilian as our waiter, very eficcient, very polite and carefull. The drinks were also very good. Mojitos are superb, you will have to watch yourself because before you know you are on the third round.
Food have changed too. They have been trying different seasonings and ways to prepared and they finnaly got it right. meats are juice and full of flavor.
would go again anytime.
