January 27, 2024 at 10 PM The facade is marvelous. Before even entering the Hotel we became entranced by the walkway. Upon entering the first wonder we see is the beautiful escalators. Who would've thought that escalators would be such an amazing sight to see in 2024. The host, Sebastián, happily escorted us to our seats, but before that Dimitry and my partner began their own charade. I have no idea what they spoke about since it was in Russian. They giggled so much that I thought they knew each other from somewhere else. The beginning was already such a delight and we hadn't even sat down yet. I can't tell who our main waiter was because we received so much positive attention from the staff. Even the chef asked how our night was and that really made us feel super special. I believe our main waiter was Marcello. His suggestions were spot on. The Ceviche bowl is a must have always. The Pisco sour drinks were also delicious. The setting is surreal. Literally feels like we were submerged into a luxurious restaurant in a jungle. It's almost 4 am. I'm too sleepy to write more. The experience was AMAZING. Definitely a must go to.

Ricardo was nothing short but AMAZING. He was extremely attentive, friendly, and he knew the menu to a T. I’m a super picky eater so he recommended the Chica 2023 Passionfruit cocktail and the oven roasted chicken. Everything was amazing. I would recommend this place a million times over.

Popular Restaurante had an exceptional inviting ambiance and friendly vibes. Stepping inside, I was immediately greeted with a smile, by Luis one of the Bartenders, who to start made my group a delicious Old Fashioned and i had the Chicha Morada. The decor is beautiful, everywhere I looked, there were plants beaming with light! The staff was very attentive, genuinely warm and welcoming. Our captain Marcelo was excellent, he was quick to offer recommendations and ensure we were satisfied. We started with the "East Coast Oyster", "Ceviche Clasico" and the "Bibb Lettuce". The fresh oysters are a delight, the ceviche was by far my favorite, so full of its traditional Peruvian flavors. The Bibb Lettuce was so refreshing, and delicious. All dishes were the perfect starter to kick off our meals. Next up, the steak. Cooked to perfection, it was juicy, and flavorful, it came with fries which were definitely a table favorite, they were thin and crunchy. For dessert we enjoyed the Turron de Doña Pepa... I want to go back just to have this again. I definitely recommend visiting, either with a group or a romantic date, you will not be disappointed!

A surprisingly 5-star meal at the base of a NYC hot spot hotel destination. Fantastic server, best recommendations, high quality ingredients and flavors. And in ab environment that felt textured, vibey, intimate. Cannot wait to be back!

Always one of my top spots to stay when in NYC. The atmosphere, service and food are consistent and top notch. The central location makes it easy to explore different areas and there is great shopping and night options steps away. Shout out to Marcelo for his amazing service!
