    I've been to Dos Cominos many times and have never had an experience as poor as this. After being seated, the waiter took 20 minutes to take our order even though we sat waiting with menus facing down. The restaurant was not busy as there were many empty tables. When we finally were able to flag down our waiter to take our order, we waited for a decent amount of time before the food arrived. Once we finished, we waited and waited for our waiter to check on us and he never came, our plates were never cleared and out water remained empty. We finally flagged down a bus boy to take away our plates and find our waiter to bring us the bill after waiting and waiting. Very poor service and a waste of time.

    We went to this restaurant with my husband. The service was very good and the food either. The only thing was that I asked for a table outside in my booking and they told us we had to wait 30 minutes if we wanted that preference. So you can´t book a table putside :(

    Great outdoor dining. Nothing terribly special though but maybe I am spoiled living in California, the Guac specialist. Still it was excellent and so were the margaritas, just a little pricey. Good salmon maincourse too.

    We have been dining at Dos Caminos well over 5 yrs. Each time we return for at least ONE of our favorite appetizers/entrees it is either NO longer offered or been altered. We often have a difficult time finding anything on the menu. Once great MADE to order guacamole (stated on menu) is no longer, MADE FRESH to ORDER. Always wet, it may be made DAILY, and set for refrigeration but NOT make fresh because I ordered it. No great chicken choices ONLY Beef or Pork (we Do not eat). Even the cheese fundidio (constancy Different and runny) is NOW made with PORK. The Mexican Cornbread is no longer good. Our food experience here is no longer great. Pricky Pear Margarita one of the best drinks.

    When I said my res was changed from 2 to 1 was seated at a table in rear of room..across from waiter station. Felt forgotten by waiter at times esp when my first course of gazpacho was served by runner and I had no spoon! Took some time to get anyone's attention then waiter said "no problem" well I should hope so! But gazpacho was delicious..and tuna tacos were tasty as well. Chocolat tort with corn gelato was okay not fab as dessert should be....

    I was very excited to try out this restaurant because I love Mexican food. My fiancé and I went for restaurant week. Unfortunately the food ( w the exception of the fruit salad, Mac and cheese and fries) was nothing short of AWFUL. Very very disappointing. He ordered the shrimp gazpacho and the tuna tacos which he described as bland. And I ordered the fruit salad and the chicken enchiladas.

    We spent at least 15 minutes attempting to get a waiter's attention. Any waiter. Nothing. We asked bus boys to send a waiter. Nothing. Our initial waiter who served water disappeared, never to be seen again. We waited and waited watching serving staff standing by the bar having a chat. There was a table of 8 and a table of 2, in addition to our table of 3. So, the place was not busy. Despite food being delicious, I would be hard put to go there again.

    The ceviche we ordered was great. However, two of us ordered the same main-course dish and both of us left more than 3/4 of it untouched. it was simply bad. I would expect a waiter who sees that (and he saw it), to say something or ask something, at the very list. I think these dishes should have been taken out of our bill. They weren't. Otherwise the weightier was nice.

    Guacamole was incredible. Authentic and fresh. Tacos were really good...spicy, but good. Tacquitos and quesadillas were amazing too. I've been to this location twice....Park Ave a half dozen times...this one is very much more relaxed and casual. Its a favorite and I make sure I go every time I am in NYC.

    Food was great. Service was the worst I have experienced at any of the Dos Caminos locations. Dirty dished left on our table for half an hour; taking plates away before people were finished eating; went there for a birthday and they brought out dessert with a candle with guests not at the table (had gone to use the restroom) and served ice cold coffee. Add to that a noise level that made causal conversation impossible.

    Nothing bad to say. Wait staff was friendly, attentive and gave good recommendations. Food is VERY overpriced -- it was good but not great. Portion sizes are nice. Ambiance is okay -- it's rowdy but it's a big restaurant so that's to be expected. Margaritas are expensive but surprisingly strong. We had 5 people for a birthday party and had a $300 bill. So not the most expensive in NYC, but also not the cheapest.

    Going to Dos Caminos is one of those things that you just have to prepare yourself for. The food, that part you don't have to worry about. It is always amazing and they typically have specials that are great. The service is always just pretty terrible. Waiters are completely inattentive. I've been going to DC for years now and this is true every trip: Get seated, waiter comes within 5m to get drink order. Order drinks from the bar, waiter comes with them 10-15m later (too long). Get specials, ask questions, waiter leaves so we can make decisions. Comes back to get order 10m later (too long). Order, food comes 15-20m later, that's fine, but then the waiter never comes back to see if you need anything, drinks, problem with food. nothing.

    Our server was very good - after asking about my tequila preferences, he recommended George Clooney's casamigos. It was fantastic! His other suggestions were very helpful as well & we really appreciated the complementary anejo flight - interesting for tequila lovers & non lovers alike. Overall the ambiance was boisterous but not obnoxious. Low lighting. Lots of bachelorette & girls nights seemed to be going on. Seems like a spot better suited for a group than a date night.

    This location is busy at night, so if you don't want all the hubbub, try another location, like the one in midtown. If you are committed to eat at this location and want a less hectic area, ask for a table upstairs.The food is great and portions generous. The staff is attentive and friendly.

    Unfortunately my experience as Dos Caminos was disappointing. Service was incredibly slow, the food was unimpressive & poorly executed. We weren't approached for over 10 minutes. We flagged down a hostess to find our server; she was the woman with her back to the room leaning against the bar. The Carne Asada tacos were prepared as: (1) had 4-5 small strips of meat, and a giant glob of guac. (2) had a medium amount of meat, and normal guac. (3) had a pile of meat, and no guac. ?? The meal was largely flavorless. My take-away is that this venue has only survived based on its location. There's a world of flavor and ingredients out there. Quit trying to scrape by with the bare minimum.

    Made reservations for 11 and had no problems at all. Staff was all upbeat, music was high energy and the atmosphere was fun, fun, fun. It was clear that staff was very busy, given the Gay Pride activities going on outside - but despite that, the mood was good. Food was a bit warm (not hot), but our entire party understood that the kitchen was also on over-drive. Great drinks. Server was busy, yet always there for us... Thanks!
