We ate at this restaurant last night and it was a spur of the moment decision. Saw the sign forLatin cuisine and thought why not try something different. Dont be put off by the white table cloths, this place is so welcoming. My husband had a tuna over mango and it was melt in your mouth make you say yummmmm good. I had ropa velliio(sp?) served with a sweet plantain on top. It was a great value and are server was very knowledgable about the menu. The Chef came out to talk with us and his passion about what he does is evident. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. We will be going back soon.

Went in a Thursday and seated immediatley without reservations. Place was filled with diners and bar patrons. Seated amd a tray of crostini was immediatley served while water was poured and drink orders taken. Ordered off the Prix Fixe menu. Delish. Tried the Calamari and filet apps. So tasty and very plentiful for an app. Also, a chick pea puree was offered complimentary from chef and was less flavorful needed somthin somethin. But hey, was complimentary and you could add salt. Dinners came, Tilapia and rolled chicken breast and a non prix fixe of a shellfish soup. The tilapia was perfect served light and delish. The sausage stuffef chix breast was tasty but needed some more of the gorgonzola sauce it was served on. But made beautifully. The Shellfish was superb! Broth was spot on! Dessert was Tres leches and Coconut flan .... Outstanding and made there¡¡¡
Michael the mgr came by to say hello and let us know Salsa was evryother Friday after 9! We will be back very soon¡

Very nice meal last night at this newer restaurant in New Haven. Very extensive menu for everyone's tastes. Grilled octopus was outstanding. So tender and well seasoned. The mambo grill for 2 is a terrific way to share a meal with steak, short ribs, sausage and chicken. Add a lobster for $7 per person. Drinks are good and service was great. A nice change for the New Haven area.

What a welcome addition to the New Haven restaurant scene! Lovely decor and atmosphere, excellent menu and service and best of all...the food is delicious! Our first visit was such a hit, we returned here for a second time during Restaurant Week. The mixed grill for two is an amazing dish as is the salmon and the filet. Pork empanadas are terrific! (I'd skip the ceviche). Also, the desserts are real treats!! Both visits, our dinners were finished off with a complimentary dessert wine. Nice touch. Mambo is on my list of great places to eat in New Haven
