Exceptional place to have some food when in a hurry. Their service is efficient, rates are fair, good ambience. Will come visit again

Valeria Munoz

Great service and food. I barely like sea food but i love it here. Everything tastes amazing. Well recommended, I’ll deff be back.

Rodrigo Alencar

Drag brunch is fun. Kinda disorganized and over crowded.

Melissa Ruiz

The place is cozy and beautiful, but the quality of food is disappointing, I know a lot about sea food and it is disappointing to be honest, the oysters couldn’t even eat them, salmon was over cooked in parts and others raw, and was …

Peter Friesen

Fantastic food and great service. The Branzino was prepared to a T, and the sides are delicious.The mascarpone flan was a perfect finish. Great service as well

Zandrea Penn

Pretty good. The food was mediocre, nothing to write home about. The drinks are what impressed me. It's a cute little place, but nothing spectacular.

Ricky Webster

Food and cocktails were expertly crafted. Our bartender was super talented and we had great conversation! Will be back next time I'm in Hell's Kitchen .

Joseph Urbinati

The octopus is so good.... Churros too though

Mark Forman

Hugh surprise as to how good this restaurant was. One of the best in Hells Kitchen. Latino food at it's best.

sara robert

Interesting menu. Wait staff professional. Food and atmosphere was great. Had to flag our waitress for the check. Otherwise highly recommend

Curtis Williams

Great food..authentic feel

Marcello -

Cozy place with a nice atmosphere. Good spot for a date. The food was good but a bit expensive for what you get. The mini lobster tacos were not worth the price. The pulpo was good but I left still a bit hungry.

Thomas Lopez

I had the ribeye which was very gristly. The sangria was superb and strong and the wait staff was excellent. The owner was also very friendly. The guacamole was good as well.

Tania Gonzalez

We had a wonderful dinner and the best service ever. Hector, our waiter made sure we had everything we needed and took notes of any special request we had. He also made great recommendations food and drink wise. The food was delicious and the ambiance is perfect. I will definitely come back!

Roxanne Cowperthwaite

Went here for a bachelorette party. Our waiter was super rude. Food and drag show were okay.

Judith Pierre-Dazle

Great food. We came for the fish ribs but they weren't in season. But everything is always great here!

Jon Epstein

La Pulperia has only been open for a few months and may be the best kept secret on Restaurant Row. Eating there makes you feel like you've entered into a friend's house where the atmosphere is warm, inviting, lively and yet still …

Javier Alvarez

Fun spot for brunches with friends. The food was really good — most plates have flavors that are reminiscing of my Latin American childhood. The restaurant space and bar are aesthetically appealing.

Susie Flude

The food was tasty but we found there was little choice and very expensive.

Richard Pinales

Too pricey for what it is

Rob Elkins

Liliana dalla Piana

Wonderful, tasty Pan Latin food with very good service!

Samuel Ortega

The service here is some of the best I've had anywhere in the United States! The atmosphere is cozy and authentic. The food is some of the most amazing food I've had in my life, really unique and truly delicious!! And the bartenders here really know their drinks!

Donna M. Castaneda

1st time and loved it our bartender is the best! Thank You Alex

Brad Ursillo

Ceviche and grilled octopus are amazing. Tender, perfectly seasoned. Very friendly and attentive service. Fantastic selection of mezcales and tequilas. Grab one of the outdoor tables, if possible.

Mace de la Fuente

This place is amazing! They host a drag brunch, it's really fun entertaining, and delicious. Food is really good, very nice portions. All the right flavors. Drinks are also nice. The staff is friendly, fast and helpful.

Adam Daniels

Wonderful service! Both restaurant specials fish ribs and stew were exceptional! The restaurant itself is very small but classy and located in heart of Hell's Kitchen! They are very conscious of of theatre times and work very hard to help …

Carlos Morrison

This place is worth giving a shot. They serve large portions for affordable rates. Consistently clean and with awesome vibes. Will come back again.

C. Fears

Alex makes drinks from scratch like a pro. He can also modify drinks per request. He makes an awesome El Chilango drink! Great place to hang with friends.

jill Crosson

First time visit before seeing a broadway play. Live in Pa so googled place to eat. Will definitely be back. Both food and drinks were spectacular. We had the rib eye and salmon... I thought the salmon was best I've ever eaten. Drinks handmade and fresh. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and will def be back!!!

Zhao-Jun Huang

Great for Happy hour with friends! Read all the reviews on Yelp and photos. The most convenient is reserved via Yelp directly. Had a dinner with a good friend on a weekday around 7PM. Cold and hot dishes were well presented. Both the clerk and price are friendly~ Will definitely go back one day.

Pablo Díaz

Cozy place, good dishes, price ok

Rodrigo Olaya

Manny the bartender created us a special drink of his own, it was stunning ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Evelyn Cardona

Food & Service was Amazing..❤

Bret Ingerman

Looking for a pre-theater meal with great food? La Pulperia fills both needs. Located just at the edge of the theater district, they take reservations starting at 5:00. That gives you plenty of time for dinner and a leisurely walk to your theater. And the food is fantastic. Billed as “rustic Latin food,” they offer a variety of small and large plates featuring incredibly fresh and house-made items. We started with the house-made red sangria which was tasty and packed a bit of a punch. We then sampled a variety of small plate appetizers starting with the guacamole, which had a great blend of smooth and chunky avocado. The empanadas were next, and while the beef ones were good (although a bit cold in the center), the corn empanadas were outstanding. While kernels if corn were creamy corn sauce (which the waitress said contained cheese). They were absolutely perfect. Next up we’re our mains, which we are family style: crab meat black ravioli, grilled octopus special, and the pacu fish ribs. The ravioli was good but not outstanding, except for the sauce which tasted a lot like the sauce in the corn Empanada. The grilled octopus special was served “Las tablas” style: 3 large pieces of octopus were served with 5 small side dishes (cazuelitas) of which the celery root gratin was the star. The octopus was grilled perfectly and served simply with peppers and onions, allowing the octopus flavor to shine through. The pacu ribs were the most interesting dish. Cut from the ribs of a large fish, the ribs look like babybacks. Each rib had a few large bones surrounded by moist fish, all covered in a tangy barbecue sauce that complimented the firm fish. Ive never had seafood prepared like this, and it. La Pulperia was a perfect start to an evening on Broadway.

Nate Funkhouser

Sunday brunch show was great! Food was good, but not amazing.

Kenneth Ho

You gotta get the fish.. Legit stuff


Horribly disappointed, out of fish ribs, so I got the hanger steak which was oily, sides where also oily/greasy. Guacamole was cold like it had been sitting in a fridge and not mixed well. Wife got the mixa dish which was in a heavy sauce and spicy which was not explained or described on the menu. Ambiance was dark and loud, not intimate at all. Drinks and oysters were good. Will not go again.

Connor Roberts

Horrible place. Best part about my dining experience was leaving.

Jennifer Steele

Incredible food and amazing service!!! I'd visit NYC again, just to eat here. Delicious empanadas and 5 star service, truly an amazing find!!!

Zena Keilany

Delicious drinks - there’s the pulperia special that I highly recommend. The beef empanadas are unbelievable. Enjoy !!

Joseph Raczynski

Fine Latin cuisine with a modern twist. The intimate location gives you a warm feeling. They have a decent menu of items for happy hour. Always feel free to reach out to me on Twitter @joerazz

Alice Yang

I cannot recommend more of the grilled Branzino! It was carefully de-boned, juicy and fresh, served with a variety of sides (my favorite is Mac and Cheese). It was an off-menu recommendation by a waiter called Hector, who’s super funny and attentive. Their Cocktails are great too!

Ian M

Food was hit or miss. The octopus was great but the guac had under ripe avocados. Atmosphere is a little dated. Service was good. Prices are a little too high for the quality of food delivered. Good to try but I probably won't be back.

Janet Gillespie

Good eats

Tere GB

A lovely spot to enjoy a drink and a small plate. A food festival brought me here and I had to try their drinks. The atmosphere was casual. I enjoyed the ambience. I'd recommend it to anyone in the area. It's a place where you can comfortably enjoy a nice cool alcoholic drink after work and not have to worry about drinking alone. Everyone at the bar seemed friendly. It's nice enough to meet a drink and casual enough for a first date. One of the better bars I've been to in this area.

Maria Sierra

Excelente service, food and drinks.

linda rodriguez

What a great experience. The food is authentic, atmosphere is cozy.

Ainura Kenzhigulova

Last Wednesday my friends and I went to the beautiful restaurant La Pulperia in Hell’s Kitchen. It is a Mexican restaurant with latin influences and, as I noticed later, delicious food. For the appetizer I ordered "Tauitos de Langosta”. The combination of fish and pineapple was incredibly good! For the main dish I ordered The "Verlasso Salmon”. It was very well cooked. It comes with 5 variety of side dishes. My favorite one was Grilled Broccoli Rabe. I would definitely recommend you to try! My dinner was complete with “The Smoky Room” Cocktail. Combination of Tequila, passion fruit pure and fresh pomegranate juice made this drink unique. I am usually not fan of tequila, but this cocktail definitely changed my mind. If you want to eat a good food with good service, I would highly recommend you to visit restaurant La Pulperia in Hell’s Kitchen.

Jan Erik Horgen

Fast, friendly service, excellent quality food (fresh, delicious), absolutely decent house wine, recommended!

Emelin Henriquez

The employees were extremely friendly. The food was amazing.

Daniela Piacenza

Awesome food! Great place!

Leticia Lebron

The food was pricey Nd cold not tasty at all

Anthony Muljadi

Very nice staff. I suggest the steak.

Andrea Diaz

Food was good, service was slow but it was because of the bar. Also wanted that the drag show to be more show and less monologue. Very expensive for my taste for a brunch in HK. Small place, always crowded, They still make it work.

Anthony Ortiz

Excellent happy hour. Everything was awesome from the food to cocktails to the service. Have to go to this hells kitchen location.

Niko Kirby

The food is regularly well prepared and flavorful, employees hands over great customer service. I loved how clean it is and atmosphere. Will come back again.

hzaklicki .

To say that I was disappointed in the service here is an understatement. Me and two other women came here because the sign advertised Happy Hour deals, and were seated at a table. We were then told that Happy Hour was only reserved to the …

alberto dalle carbonare

Music, people, good food, good cocktails....what else?

Sebastian Sangervasi

Fish ribs are a delight. The bartenders will give you a great cocktail experience.

Vanessa Estorque

The place is small but they 2 other sires much bigger. Great staff; good food;l and awesome cocktails.

David Tello

Went to the drag brunch for Pride! The food was great and the drag queens were amazing!! Thank you!

Stephenie St. Rose

Only went for happy hour drinks but they were good.

Branko Horvat

Fantastic cuisine, friendly staff. Seafood was plentiful and the signature BBQ fish ribs dish tasted fantastic.

Aaron Rochman

Great food. Small servings.

Adam Scher

Just back from dinner. Amazing service and food. Bartender made us feel like we were part of his family. Leaving town tomorrow or I'd be back in a heartbeat.


I will ALWAYS continue to go to La Pulperia. They know me very well and they take GREAT care of my needs. Love the service and LOVE my Ritzy.

Amy Meverden

I went to this restaurant with a friend because the menu purported to have vegan friendly options, which were guacamole (ask for them to hold the cheese) and a kale salad with beets and carrots. I asked the server if he could add black beans to the salad (other entrees had black beans in them) and he said no, but offered to add corn (fyi, corn is a vegetable that is not filling and does not have protein). So, I ate a meager salad that had zero protein, which was disappointing given the entree price. Vegans beware—no filling entree options and zero flexibility to accommodate! My friend enjoyed her meat entree, so I’m sure the food is great otherwise.

sarahi olaya

LOVED THIS PLACE ....!!!! Took my friend here and he loved it ... great restaurant. Manny, our bartender impressed us with a drink of his own, service was excellent definitely coming back and I highly recommend this place :).

Marcus Lemonuse

love this place

Nick Blewden

Great south american cuisine washed down with excellent cocktails in a rustic but homely atmosphere. Great staff, wish we could have stayed longer. Will be back for happy hour (4-7)

Jamie Flude

The menu seemed smaller than expected. However the food I had was good.

Mozafar Wanly

Favorite Date night spot! Always a good time and amazing service!

Sean Ramsaywak

Great food, service ambiance. It can be pricey, so be prepared if you go all out.

Rachel J Rowland

Happy hour specials are only available at the bar, which was disappointing because we were there in a group to sit down for an early dinner. The portions were small for the price, but everything we had was delicious and the server was incredibly attentive. I'd recommend the ceviche and empanadas.

Jane L

This place is excellent! Great service from the moment we entered to when we left. We had the guacamole to start, it was delicious and I loved that it still had generous chunks of avocado. For the main course, I had their signature “fish ribs” which was incredibly tender and flavorful. My mom had the sangria-braised short ribs and it was a tad dry but equally tasty. Our server was professional and we even got free sparkling wine at the end of our meal! The ambiance was perfect, I’d come here again for a romantic dinner. I highly recommend this place.

Madeline Rodriguez

Great location, ambiance and service.

Luigi Iannone

Gorgeous food. I tried their trio of raw seafood and then the octopus as main. Both were good to die for!

Dom C.

Great food, and service. Brandon(brunch host) is great and drag queens are fun. Steak sandwich is great!

Marygrace Ashdown

La Pulperia was by far one of the best places to try in Hell's Kitchen! We sat outside and enjoyed the rare weather (67° in February!). The bartender seated us and brought us the menus. We started with white wine and ordered lots of small plates. They have two Happy Hours (5-7 and 9-11) with amazing deals. The ceviche was unique and had an incredible presentation. The guacamole was one of best. The truffle fries were so tasty and even included a fried egg! The queso fundido was tasty. The best part were the empanadas (we tried beef, chicken & cheese, and ranchera). Also we loved the oysters! They even offered us ice cream at the end of the meal - dulce de leche and the most unique and delicious flavor I've ever tried - lucuma. Overall the service is just incredible. The wait staff are attentive, friendly and knowledgeable. I'd highly recommend this place - lots of amazing options and great service

Gigi T

We come here for the grilled Branzino and Mac & cheese. The service is 10/10 with the most friendliest staff. Can not wait to come back

Jose Ocasio

Great food,service and price! It’s always a pleasure to dine here...the Hosts and the staff are very friendly and treat you like family!

Frederick Wright

Very impressed with this cozy spot in the Theater District along Restaurant Row. Service was spotless and efficient, and the food was outstanding - particularly the octopus special, which was grilled but impossibly tender. The seared scallop special, served over risotto was also a standout but on the night of my visit, it was simply too warm outside to have a good appetite, so I regretfully left half my portion unfinished. Impressive white sangria, not syrupy or sweet at all, but packed with sharp bright citrus flavors and stone fruit notes. Do not miss out on the salmon crudo - it is a true blockbuster, and the empanadas are an unusual style, with a lighter than air flaky crust rather than the usual armor plating.

Rich H

Came here for Drag-Brunch, and was not dispappointed! Food was great, show was awesome! Staff is very friendly and attentive even during the show. Order the steak and eggs. Steak was cooked well, eggs was perfect and fluffy. Definitely will be back for more!

Patricia Lenihan

It was romantic. Music was fitting for atmosphere. Staff was wonderful food was excellent

Stefani Fontana

Food was good, the drag show was pretty good, it’s a small restaurant so the girls dance in the isles which makes it great for interactions... I guess I tend to prefer a performance style drag show with a stage, so depends on what you’re looking for

Hope Goldstein

The food is so good. It's a great place for date night or drinks

Style N Craft Leathers Inc.

This Brazilian restaurant is a gem in Hell's Kitchen. A very old time diner like feel but the service is great and friendly. The cocktails are very good and so is the food. Octopus salad is very good. Had also ordered a mixed seafood dish which was excellent. The dessert, Flan was a let down though.

Corey Johnson

Great food all the time. Love $1 oysters

moe patel

Great Drag Brunch

David Arnedo

Hilarious giant glasses for cocktails but hit and miss food at a very high price. Friendly staff, terrible music. More of a place for drinks than food!


The service here is some of the best I've had anywhere in the United States! The atmosphere is cozy and authentic. The food is some of the most amazing food I've had in my life, really unique and truly delicious!! And the bartenders here really know their drinks! The general manager is awesome!!! I strongly recommend this place!!! Great times!!! :)

Andrea Castillo

Tasty well thought out dishes!

James Anderson

Delicious seafood with a central american flair

Alex Lucas

Only reason to come is for drag brunch! You have to see Shuga Cain or Ritzy Bitz! They are by far the best queens there!

Food Critique

$1 oyster, nice cocktails, cosy little place full of characters and delicious food, what more can one ask?

Derycs Miranda

Food and service was excellent

Abby Cooper

Instantly one of my favorite restaurants, and I love that I can get Seated rewards here! Service here was very nice and the people are extremely friendly. The food was delicious. I really enjoyed the flank steak dish. In terms of the atmosphere, it was intimate and cozy. Will definitely be back again.

Gricell LaSalle

Amazing Show, food, drinks! Can't wait to return!!!

Monique Richard

New York has some amazing things to offer, and enough restaurants to try something new every day, and yet I always make sure to make time to visit the lovely folks at La Pulperia every visit! Victor knows hospitality like no one I've ever known and all the staff that I've met over the years are super warm and welcoming! This place has the best cocktails I've ever had, and their Salmon bruleé is what dreams are made of! So glad I found this little corner where I can feel at home while I'm away. Time to stop reading this review and go! now! :D

Irma Clement

Great drinks and service

Jim Finn

Awesome Latin American restaurant with very friendly staff and really tasty menu heavy on seafood.


Visited here yesterday before a show. The place is really cute inside and has a nice layout. The manager welcomed us and spoke with us and made us feel comfortable and the service was great as well. Every person working in that restaurant was kind and attentive. The cocktails were great and the food was delicious and plated nicely. I would definitely come back here and I advise anyone looking for a good option in the area to visit La Pulperia. Suggested dishes: Lobster Taquitos Pulpo Sangria Braised Short Rib Coquito Passion Cocktail

Amazing place, the food is so authentic; the way they mix the flavors is really unique. And the service and attention is superb. I highly recommend
