Success! Thanks for posting your review of Mambo Grill. You’ve done the world some good today.

Do not waste your money.

Worst! I have never had worse food. Waitress told me that the vegetarian paella was her favorite dish. The menu said it was authentic and flavored with saffron. More like rice-a-roni with red and green peppers (and maybe grilled pear???) for $16. Not worth it. I didn't even send it back because I couldn't think of any alternative to order.

Great private event!

We held an event in Mambo's downstairs private room, and it was wonderful. They were so helpful with everything from menu selection to parking tips, and the food was fantastic. They really worked with us and were flexible and helpful. It was a great experience from start to finish.

Great Food

Great food and the right prices, people are polite and ready to take care of the little details, prices are not bad based on the quality of food served, I have taken friends and so far they're happy.

This place Rocks!!!!!!!

My wife and I visited Chicago this past weekend. I lived there years ago and she used to visit me. Anyhow in my travels around chicago when I lived there I stumbled upon this little restaurant that specialized in central american cuisine. Mambo Grill was a fantastic establishment 12 years ago and All I have to say Now is WOW!!! My wife and I were blown away. we showed up around 7pm or so with no reservation and... view more

Great, noisy date place!

I am confused! We go to Mambo Grill every visit to Chicago. Love the mojitos (and we've had them in many places) and the food is great. We have been to Mambo on Friday's when they have been so packed, the wait was over an hour. It can get somewhat noisy on a busy night, but we liked the buzz so we could have private conversation. I believe the previous reviewer may have visited on an off night. Give this place a try-... view more

Probably worst restaurant in Chicago

If I could give it less than 1 star I would. My girlfriends and I all went here for my best friend's birthday party. All I can say is wow! Can a restaurant really be this bad on so many levels? \r \r I guess we should have know something was wrong when we went in on a Friday night and it was a ghost town. We should have just turned around and walked out the door at that warning sign.\r \r Food was miserable ... view more

Beyond Expectations

My husband and I made reservations for a Saturday night. We were seated promptly when we arrived. The food looked, smelled and tasted great! The service was quick and polite. We didn't feel rushed and enjoyed the atmosphere which was energetic, but still comfortable. I have never written a review for any of the restaurants that we find online, but the Mambo Grill was an exceptional meal at a reasonable price.

Great food. Go on an ""off night"" to enjoy best service.

The food is here great. The atmosphere is very relaxing and cordial here. Everything is clean. I highly recommend going on an ""off night"" because you tend to get much better service. That's the only drawback here is that the service sometimes falls below standard levels when they get busy. For example, we came in with a party of 10 on a Friday night with reservations and the first round of drinks came just fin... view more

Highly Recommend Mambo Grill!

My experience at Mambo Grill was great from the beginning. I called on Thursday night to make a last minute reservation for Friday night. The woman said she would squeeze us in at 7:00. When we arrived at 7:00 our name wasn't in the book, but the woman remembered me and sat us right away. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Our drinks (Mojito and sangria) were great. The food was DELICIOUS. I had the chile re... view more
