We went for happy hour, the tapas were great as were the mojitos and beer from Darwin's brewery. We will return for the happy hour and to try the restaurant. The bar and restaurant are nicely decorated, dark, and the service was excellent.

Took a large group of people here for Cocktails, followed by Dinner in the upstairs balcony... I have been here before and had spotty service, long waits for my check, so I was a little anxious. But I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy a lovely...More

Went to this excellent Peruvian restaurant last night, the food is excellent. They have lovely sushi and sashimi, combined with starters to share such as the spring rolls and lobster taco! The main courses were all very tasty, especially the pork chop and the duck....More

We've been to Darwin's several times now - both for happy hour and during regular dining hours. We've always had excellent food, drink, and service. We especially like the oven roasted pork taco but really, you can't go wrong. Their desserts are fantastic as well....More

We had a 7pm reservation. The hostess experience was good. She showed us to our table promptly, however the waitress was a bit more casual than we expected, greeting us more like we were at Chili's, and not appropriate for the price point and ambiance...More

We have eaten here on several occasions and always enjoyed it but tonight Darwin's moved to my "favorite" spot. I think I drove my S.O. insane because I could not stop talking about how delicious my skirt steak was. The perfect balance of flavor made...More

Love Darwin's! Only problem we had was understanding our waitress. She didn't speak English very well and we like fresh ground pepper with our salad. She came over after we had started eating them after someone didn't come around to ask! Ding!!
