My friend took me to this neighborhood eatery for breakfast. At first I was intimidated by the menu listings as they were not in English- my only fluent language, but every item has a clear English description. Even if that hadn't been the case our waitress was so friendly and helpful, I'm sure I would have received any assistance necessary... More

Visited recently on an unusually warm November evening. We had to wait for seating, but the evening was pleasant. Once inside, we found a small, cozy, lively setting. Cheerful music and a good crowd. The food was delicious. We started with empenadas and had a pork dish as the main. It was delightful. We imagined that on a cold winter... More

Came here for lunch after visiting the Chile Pepper Festival in Brooklyn Botanical Garden where I sampled and loved their yellow hot sauce. It was a bit of a walk but found this place amid a number of auto shops. Had the roasted pork with boiled yuca and more of that great hot sauce. Boy, did I enjoy my meal.... More

This is by far my favorite restaurant in Brooklyn. My family is Puerto Rican so I grew up on amazing hispanic food and always have trouble finding anything as good when dining out, but this place is great! I recommend the pork dishes, mofongo, and churrasco but you really can't go wrong with anything. Only con is that it's cash... More

We visited on a date night. The restaurant was crowded but we had called ahead and were told our table would be ready in 15minutes. When we arrived we were seated shortly after. It's a very informal vibe. The seating were small tables, miss matched chairs was part of the ambiance. My chair was extremely uncomfortable I had to switch... More

I arrived in NYC mid afternoon from the Dominican Republic and was please to stumble into Puerto Viejo. Beautifully decorated, great energy and ambiance. I was greeted by the Owner Señor Eduardo and his two sons Eduardo and Franklin. They graciously explained the wines and offered me one of the best sangria I have ever had! Since I'm always hungry,...

There's a dish there involving ground beef, plantains, and cheese. It's a simple idea, but the flavors were unique since I'm an American. Great restaurant.

The lack of seating is more than made up by the quality of the food. The authentic Domincan food passes muster by my Dominican son-in-law. Great value for the money!

Searched TA for a trendy spot in Brooklyn and read the reviews for Puerto Viejo. Intrigued, we decided to go for lunch. Nothing special about the decor and the location of the restaurant, but the service and the food deefinitely made up for that. Quick service from the only waitress during the height of lunch time, but you couldn't tell.... More
