what a find!

We went exploring Larchmont Blvd. this weekend and Prado was a great find! This restaurant is a hidden treasure. I am sure people aren't reviewing it because they don't want to give the secret away. Sorry but I have to. This place is fantastic! The service, food, and ambiance are all top notch! I would go back in a heartbeat. My husband and I went with another couple and all four of us loved our food. Thank you Prado!

Excellent Carribean cuisine

This place is to die for.... Each time I go I sit outside because it is prime for people watching. I highly recommend the empanadas as an appetizer, so good you'll wonder how they disappeared off your plate so quickly. Also the Salmon is a great entree as well as the Grilled Lim Chicken. The prices are reasonable for the area which is right on Larchmont Blvd and don't forget to get a drink or two..... you will not be disappointed!!!!!!

Pleasant atmosphere, good food, great portions

Took friends from San Francisco there early on a Saturday night. Not too crowded, no issue for not having reservations. Very, very personable Maitre d' and wait staff. Lots of local regulars in place (as one should always expect on Larchmont). We had Jamaican tamales, crabcakes, and the empanada appetizer. All was wonderful. The beans and rice as the side dish were excellent. The Korean spirit used in most of their cocktails was different, but worked well in the mojito I had. Decent beer and wine selection.

Pleasantly Surprised

We stopped by Prado's one day after walking up and down Larchmont trying to decide on dinner. It turned out wonderful. Everything we ordered was delicious, and the service was top notch. I'll definitely be visiting more often.

Looks more expensive than it is

I always walked by, thinking it'd be too much, but one day I stopped to actually read the menu and it was quite affordable. I have been coming back regularly since. The food is great, with lots of options for vegetarians, and it's never crowded, even on a weekend night when every other place is packed. It's romantic and the people who work there are super friendly.

Always a good choice

It's low-key, friendly, never crowded. The menu is varied and inventive - the salads are terrific. I go there for everything - to celebrate, chill out, and it's always a satisfying experience.

Great Food, Great Location, Great Service!!!

Highly Recommended

I generally have a different experience every time I go here. The most recent time was great, however. The caesar salad with louisiana shrimp was fabulous, and the red raspberry velvet cake for dessert was also excellent. The ambience is really romantic-- lots of candles. Highly recommended.

Poor Value

Not recommended. They increased the price by 50% recently and the deco is so so. So is the food. Won't go back again. Not worthwhile.

This is a great getaway for lunch. We all enjoyed our food. It was flavorful and different. The presentation was thoughtful and the portions just right. When you are looking for something a little different, I would recommend Prado.
