I come here sometimes after work. Monday night is happy hour all day. $6 mojitos. Try the fried calamari with honey sauce, delicious. I usually like to sit at the bar. Its a good size bar and there's couches for lounging. They have four different sangrias very tasty. I highly recommend its a cute bar to grab a drink, food is also very good.

Calle Ocho has an unlimited-sangria brunch with 8 kinds of sangria included with no extra charge -- our table tried 4 kinds, all delicious, and the glasses are very ample. The waiter was attentive and kept pouring and pouring. The most surprising thing was the food is great. Their version of Eggs Benedict was amazing -- the ropa vieja was also excellent. NOTE: reservations are MONTHS ahead . However, if you arrive at 11:30 (it opens at Noon) you can likely get a table in the lounge or at the bar -- the lounge was super-comfortable for 5 people, the bar wd be best for just two.

We had been to Calle Ocho at its previous location around the block, so we were not put off by the somewhat darker colorful decor or the loud music we encountered. It's part of the fun dining experience: don't expect a quiet romantic meal. That said, the service was very attentive and pleasant. A group of 4 shared a pitcher of sangria, and we had appetizers of shrimp and grilled octopus. The shrimp was a winner, the octopus cold and almost rubbery. Entrees included the pork loin, sea bass, and pork ribs: all were nicely presented, very tasty and of ample size. No desserts or coffee, and the bill came to almost $200, without a tip, so it's not inexpensive, but a good place for a group of sangria drinking friends on the Upper West Side.

Range of Sangria is good, food VG but too dark and music too loud for a family get together with elderly guests.
