    I am a world traveler and a Colombian citizen. I have been in many restaurants around the world. El Governador is by far, the best restaurant I've ever been. Period. Everything, from the amazing venue, structure, decor, ambiance, food, service, etc was out of this world. I will definitely return with more friends and family, to this superb place. My respect and appreciation to the staff and chef for allowing to have a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner with our friends! ????????????⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Just a mediocre restaurant. Everything too heavy. Large portions don't make up for quality. Wait staff was very kind and attentive. Large parties made it noisy and impossible to talk.

    They didn’t uphold my reservation. They called me 1 hour before to tell me that they had a problem with other reservation which led us to not have a place to dine
