This is rather embarassing.. – This is rather an embarassing story but I feel it has to be told since the restaurant hasn't returned my attorney's calls since the incident occured. I had ordered the Penne Pasta, that my brother Abraham had raved about, and about halfway through the main course, I began having violent pains in my stomach, along with dizziness, and a cold sweat that suddenly struck. I was feeling overclempt, so I scurried to the restroom to relieve myself and as I reached the stall, I slipped and fell on the wet floor. There was no wet floor sign present. Upon impact face first, my glasses shattered and I had defecated HBW all over myself. I was embarassed but what could I do? So I made my way out into the restaurant to speak w/ the manager about the situation and based on appearance was told to leave immediately. This embarassment ranged down to the cooks snickering at my dress pants covered in wet fecal matter. The manager even laughed at me and motioned for one of the waiters to "come check this out". I was mortified. I would expect the manager to return my lawyer's calls to resolve this matter that has resulted in a chipped tooth, broken glasses, a dry cleaning bill, and severe mental anguish. The only respectable fellow was the DJ himself, who offered his jacket to tie around my waist so I could actually catch a cab back home to Bensonhurst. This is an atrocity.
great friday night dj and music schene – The DJ on friday night is exceptional. He doesnt always play my requests but what DJ does in this city - am i rite. Food is good but nothing over the top. iiwii. I did it for the lulz.
Good Music, Average Food, Portly Patrons – When I used to wait tables, I loved fat people. Co-workers would come up to me like, "Hey I bet you want that table of hot chicks over there" and I'd be like "no, I'd rather have the fat people, cause all those skinny bitches gonna eat is one order of chicken fingers between 8 people". I no longer wait tables, and now instead of seeing fat people as money, I see them for what they are -- fat. That being said, there are way too many rotund people at the Taino. Shiiiit, they ought to change it to Tai-bo and get dem hippos some cardio. I was also disapointed to find pubic shavings in my undergarments. My neither regions were unfairly frisked by your regulars. The food was mediocre. I knew I should have checked the bathroom beforehand, because when I got in there, fecal matter started talking to me in a language that only you can prevent forest fires. The DJ was also fat, but he played good music. I will go back to this feeding trough only fully equipped with those bigass plexiglass shields the swat team uses, and a whistle that f**ks up dog ears.
Absolutely AWESOME secret Drink Menu!!! – Okay most people dont know this about this place but it has a 'secret' wink wink drink menu and the best thing is that the 'secret' drinks are only $4.00!! Me and my friends tried them all (we think) here's the ones we know!
The Natalie Gomes - I dunno whats in this one but after 2 my girlfriend was so tossed she was talking like Kermit the Frog!
The Kronte - Pretty good drink. So messed up me and our buddies forgot our credit score!
The Samurai - My friend said he was so wasted that he thought he was seeing aliens!
The Atomic - The bartender said it'd make you wanna have kids with any girl in the house!
The Chilkin - I ordered this one and even an episode of CNN was exciting
The Dissindex - Made me walk like a chick
The Ban Hammer - I heard they stopped slanging this one cuz too many people were gettin tossed out the building after this one.
Ask the bartenders for any of these BY NAME or they wont make them for you. The $4 drink menu goes on all night every night from what i hear. Drink up Friends! Thank me later cuties!!!
hey mr dj – those birthday bitches had nice ta tas... i liked the toylet ... the dj seemed awfully tubby, but still , he was adorable and played fun musics... the birthday girls were like "play some jLo" im not gonna lie ... i kinda wanted to hear it too... iiwii .
Common sense would tell me that the golden era of hip hop is when?
thats the personal demon i have been fighting, you see that is until i came to Latin night, this changed my view. I was thrown off on why a Hairy Italian would be on the wheels of steel at a "Latin Night" but then again wicked is white and is real hip hop.
I was upset by how they treated this DJ, you see this DJ is like C from a Bronx Tale learning his life lessons and passing the tests of life.
As i sat creepy in the corner staring at people sweating and itching myself, i had noticed this obese woman requesting the dj to do the "Jumping Bean Dance" while he was trying to cut some fine grooves on the 1s and 2s
let me ask you this, in his job description does it say "You will be bothered by a obese obnoxious birthday girl on nights when your sick as hell, but you come in anyways to get teh job done so people are happy." Does this apply to the DJs job description, As part of the Latin Dance Groove of New York, i am starting a boycott against this establishment for the simple fact you fired this DJ who came in sick to do his job when he was obviously being bothered by a request that was totally ridiculous.
Im going to watch American Me now
I am a burrito expert – I used to love this place. there was always fat skanks for me to try and penetrate, and latin night was my SHIIT. but then i went in there yesterday, and i found out that the dj that spins on latin night wasn't there anymore, so i just took a dump in their stank restroom and went home.
Dear Valued Patrons,
We at Taino Soleil are so sorry that you are exposed to having to read these hateful and offensive words in the following reviews. If you will note, the last true review was written by a top guest on her birthday, in which she made known the the DJ we employed that night was inexcusably rude to her. Because our customer's happiness is our #1 priority, we immediately took action and let go of the DJ who failed to show proper respect. As you can see for yourself, he went on a review vengeance spree and has blasted our Citysearch boards with inane nonsense in hopes of sabatoging our business. While we are disgusted at the gross language he uses, we are also confident that you readers are savvy enough to smell a bogus review when you read one.
Thank you all so much for your time, and we hope to see you here at Taino Soleil!
I <3 Everyone – :)
A man who cannot roll blunts!
All of these things and more can be found in this restaurant! This restaurant is the pinnacle of human achievement!
oh joy :D
jesus christ btt, happy?
teh dj wuz da illest – i dont kno what that fagg0t bdaygirl30 was talking about, i was there that nite and the dj was teh best part of the restaurant. i actually got sick after teh appetizer, which was made by smelly mexican bnrs. to top it off u got this fat hoebag complaining about the music wanting to hear jlo, hey biatch if i see u in the streets im going to r@pe and murder u, u fat piece of sh!t
pretty good pretty good – pretty good food pretty good food. Nice atmosphere (no slug). Good service. Though i do agree with the past reviewer that some of the female patrons can be a little on the Beelman-ish side but hey nobody's perfect. All in all this place will not make you go ughh. The Hipster count may be high but RichDogg and others are there to see to it that the pageantry will not run amuckery here. Also dont forget to take a sippa of some yummy margaritas!! And the what me and my friends like to call the 'Jon' special is only missing a little spice and soy sauce rice. Anyways me and my Voltron Force headed to this spot and it will definately be a sticky in our minds. Lots of ways to interact whichever Quest you're on in life. But i just feel our server Adam was not as attentive as he could have been and his lisp was really funny!!! All in all this place was Bionic and i felt like Ray Liotta in Goodfellas when i was sitting at my table. Anyways it Poly a good time to mention that a Retired Man (key) like myself can enjoy himself here and enjoy the ambience set by the Thorny trees you see on your way to the parking lot. Also my date Becky really enjoyed herself too!! And her friend Lynn was ecstatic about the manager who called himself T-Godd. Nat may enjoy herself there too but she has issues that need addressing first! LOLZ! Anyways the only thing this place is missing is a Street Fighter4 game with a brown joystick!!! Love this place! (y/h)
