Great food, service and the price is just right. The sopa con camarones was fantastic. Thier organic wines are complex and good ;) Cap the dinner with expresso to end the great food experience. This place is highly recommended.

La Conguita had been a favorite of mine for some time, since they originally opened. However, with the last visit I noticed that the quality of the food went downhill. I had the Pernil that comes with yellow rice, fried plantains and beans. To my dismay, I found that the roast pork was not very tender all throughout. I had to sort through the plate to find the good pieces that were to my liking. Also, the yellow rice was filled with more beans and I wasn't even made aware of this from the person that took my order. The fried plantains were actually hard and most likely due to the fact they were left out a long time from the fryer. Service here is generally slow, as they're not looking to boot you out while you are still eating. If you are trying to get out of here quickly, the slowness in service will be even more apparent.

I really like the food here, and they offer an interesting level of variety in terms of latin and European foods. However, my latest visit left me a bit unsatisfied. The waiter couldn't accept that we'd both be drinking waters and with enough passive pressure, got me to order a beer (weak i know). We ordered the 3 course specials, and the appetizers arrived within a decent amount of time. However, 30 minutes after we've finished the appetizers and had the plates taken away, they still hadn't served our entrees. We finally had had enough and I stood up and asked the guy to give us the rest of our meal to go, along with the bill. After another 15-20 minutes, we received the bill. I then asked for one of the meals to be split off so that I could pay 2 separate bills (anyone who submits expenses would understand) and was told that they could not because "they would have to explain why they voided a check". The check hadn't been paid for and I would paying the new checks immediately, so why is this an issue? I just got frustrated and said fine and paid the bill, still including a tip (I can;t help it). However, I won't be going back here. The food is pretty good though, but probably overpriced.

Good food at a decent price. Service can be a little slow as others have mentioned but if you are in the mood for a relaxing meal in a laid back atmosphere, this is the place.

Please this place is a joke they advertise free delivery but when i call several different times during the week I'm being told that they don't deliver, mind you I live about 8 blocks from them. Then stop advertising that you deliver or make up your mind if you do or don't... Plus the food isn't all the great, in the last few years the quality has really gone down and the service isnt the same as before, your better going some where else like Hard Grove, or The Azucar...Anything is better then this....

My boss took us for lunch here, it was snowing and cold outside, when we walked in they had about 5 fans on blast, in the middle of a snowstorm! Then our food came,i ordered the beef stew lunch special, our food was cold, we sent it back to be reheated, and they brought it back lukewarm.. the beef was dry and overcooked... like what restaurant serves cold food? That was my first and last visit .

La Conguita is a downtown JC staple. The food is good and inexpensive (try the jalapeño mussels) , the service is friendly but very slow. Don't go if you are in a hurry, but you should go and enjoy some of the most affordable good food in JC when you're not in a hurry.

Service was very good, unlike many of the older reviews. The food was excellent for the price too. I'll be back!
