My husband and I had dinner at El Mojito last week. We were pleasantly surprised. The decor is lovely, nice place to eat. The food was very good. I had the roast pork and it was great as were the plantains. My husband had the garlic shrimp which he loved. He did feel that the black beans and white rice was a little disappointing, he felt they may have been in the pot a while. But, the vegtables were done to a T, very enjoyable. And, the Mojitos were delicious! The restaurant is very new, and service was a little slow, but not enough to be a real problem. There was only one man working the front and one in the kitchen. I did notice a "help wanted" sign in the window, so that will hopefully improve. Our waiter was very nice and helpful with the menu. We will definitely go back. this is one place that definitely warrents another look!

I love the people there and the drinks are very good and the food is good too. They do make some good sweet treats and I love how I can hang out with my friends there and have a good time.

I have been waiting for this restaurant to open and they finally did a few Saturdays ago. I have to say though, I was somewhat disappointed!

My son picked a booth out that wasn't yet prepared, so our waiter asked us to move to a different table that was already set, so we did. There was a table of four women who were VERY LOUD and dropping "F" bombs like they were going out of style. My wife and daughter arrived and we asked to move away from these woman. The restaurant is very small so even though our table was "far" from the four women, we could still hear their conversation and swearing!

The food arrived and was good! I had the fried plantains, Cuban style pork, and Congris (rice and black beans). The pork was served in kind of a clump instead of being pulled apart, is how I have had pork served at other Cuban restaurants around town. The pork was covered with onions and peppers which was a nice compliment. My wife had a Talapia covered in an asparagus sauce and a side of black beans. She felt that her food was very salty. Our daughter had the Cuban sandwich which I tried a couple of bites, and it was very tasty.

There were several people walking around including an older couple, who we believed to be the owners of the restaurant. Not one time did they walk by to say "hello" or "how is your food?", NOTHING!!!

When we finished dinner, my son and I left first and as we were walking out, the four amigas were still going at it cursing up a storm and being loud. My wife said as they were preparing to leave, a gentleman from behind the bar approached the table to have a word with them. As my wife and daughter were leaving, she said no one "thanked" them for coming in or dining with them.

The food was good, but the service left alot to be desired. Based on that, may be a while (if at all) before I return.
