We went to El Barrio to experience some Latin American fun; maybe some music, language, food,etc.
The hostess who took my reservation did not speak Spanish; I had to spell my last name for her (it's Spanish).
When we got there, they were playing blues music and it went on and on with this harmonica...brutal. Where is the Spanish music?
Our server was also Canadian, and did not speak Spanish.
The first appies were a little odd; the quesadillas had cinnamon in them and were hardly bearable. The patatas needed a lot salt for flavour as well.
The chicken enchiladas were ok, but not exceptional. The other meal which should have had chicken inside was filled with beans and we had to order an extra side of chicken to make up for it.
Not a lot of people in besides us, and the service was not reflecting that.
All in all, not a very latin american experience; I was very disappointed.
Food was ok, ambiance was less than desireable.
