Diner Reviews
  • "We needed a place that could seat 6 for pre-theatre and appeal to the non-foodies and 13-year olds in our grouop. This restaurant fit the bill. I'm a mole snob, and the taste of this one dish is how I judge a Mexican restaurant. I'd give this one an average. Their nachos were poor value, not enough chips on the plate, especially for sharing with more than a couple of additional people. Everyone came out full, though, and we made it to the theatre on time. We were done eating way too early for the theatre, but they kindly didn't rush us out...then again there didn't seem to be anyone waiting for tables."

  • "Awesome Mexican food. Loved the spicy guacamole. Age range of group 21 to 79 and everyone raved about their selection."

  • "We had a party of 7 with plans to head to a show after dinner. Our table was waiting on us, service was friendly and prompt and the food was excellent. NYC prices of course, but for the theater district it was well worth it. They had $5 happy hour drink specials. The guacamole was $12 but was a really big portion. 3 nice sized mole chicken enchiladas were $17. Mid size space, nicely, not overly theme decorated. Good lively music playing, not overly loud and we could converse from one end of table to the other. We had some kids with us (4, 11, 12) and they were well taken care of too, in a friendly family way, that made you feel welcome and not like you were imposing on the staff. It will be our go to Mex place pre show again!"

  • "Met a number of friends here for dinner and happy hour on a Saturday night! The food was good and the prices were reasonable. Even better was the Happy Hour option! House margaritas for $5 is not bad at all. :) We stayed for a while and were not rushed out at all -- that was a nice surprise as my friends and I caught up on life here.... Definitely would recommend!"

  • "I was very pleased with my experience at Diego's. I had a group of 10 people to celebrate my birthday. We arrived in plenty of time to take part in the $5 Happy Hour specials (margaritas, sangria, etc.) and following had dinner. Some of our party arrived over a half hour early and we were still seated immediately. They kept bottomless chips & salsa coming with our appetizers until the full group arrived. Everyone was satisfied with their food and drinks. We averaged $20-$40 a person depending on how many drinks were consumed. The only downside was the service was a bit slow - but for the reasonable price, we never felt rushed, and delicious food it really wasn't a big deal."

  • "My sister and I went to Diego's before going to see a show on Broadway. It was much better than we had anticipated and we left full and satisfied. The guacamole was delicious - the small side is the perfect amount for 2 rather than the appetizer size. I got the chicken chimichanga and she got a burrito and we were both pleased. Great and fast restaurant for a pre-show meal."

  • "Looking for dinner before a play and found Diego's on Opentables rated 4 stars and $$. Went with wife and 2 older kids (mid 20's). Never had better chips and salsa . They should bottle up the salsa and sell it, and I've tried lot's of salsa's before. Sat at bar before dinner. Bartender was really friendly and not overbearing. jalapeno marguerite was excellent. Dinner was top notch. Tasty but did not have the heaviness you normally get with Mexican good. Everyone enjoyed their meals. It was not a high end extraordinarily polished/high end, so gave it 4 stars overall. That's ok. This place is a must try."

  • "Not the nicest looking place, but price was very fair and food portions were great. Spicy guac was excellent. Great for vegetarian options and beans/rice are vegetarian. Standard mexican but just great quality."

  • "Great food at reasonable prices. Drinks are not watered down at all. Very stiff. Had the chicken tacos and they were very good. Easy walk from our hotel. Highly recommended. Our table was ready as soon as we walked in."

  • "the food was delicious but the drink service was slow on account of there only being one person mixing drinks for the whole, crowded restaurant."

  • "This is an outstanding restaurant. I've been there a few times and have ordered from them occasionally. Everything is great. Only criticism I have is that the specialty tequila drinks, while delicious, come with a lot of ice. For each frozen margarita a friend drank, I had two specialty drinks. Other than that, it's great!"

  • "We had a Saturday night reservation for 4 people, ran 30 minutes late on our table. Gave a us a wrong estimate of a wait time as well. Placed us near the back/kitchen which we thought would be a quiet spot but was quite the opposite. Didn't make up for our table being late. The food was good but nothing spectacular. You can definitely find better food and better service for the price. Oh yeah and to top off everything their frozen marg machine was out..."

  • "I've gone to this restaurant a number of times over the years (it used to be called Ta Cocina). The food is decent, and what you would expect from a basic Mexican restaurant. The drinks are small and/or watery. But the service is terrible. Every time I go (which is every year or two), I promise to myself that I won't go back. Once, they "lost" my credit card between the machine and our table--seriously. Tonight, we waited for 10 minutes before even getting water, much less the chance to order a cocktail. Think I'll do a better job of remembering not to go back."

  • "I celebrated my birthday here and it was awesome and intimate. The food was good spicier then what I expected. Most people took a doggy bag home which means portion was good or they werent that hungry. I was disappointed with the fried ice cream that I ordered..It just wasn't as together as i would have liked. HOWEVER i did get to taste the tres leche cake and it was amazing!!! The tres leche cake by nature is very sweet but this one was sweet enough to satisfy the sweet tooth and not give you a tooth ache!! I wish i would have ordered that instead of the fried ice cream"
