    We had a group of 7, our entire meal was lovely - food was delicious, drinks were great, and we were all having a great time. But right after our plates were cleared, the manager (?) came up and told us he needed the table. I understand if we had been sitting there for multiple hours (we hadn't), but the plates were literally just cleared, and we hadn't even paid yet. We had made a reservation for our table before coming, so I think they should be expecting a group like ours to be at the table for a little while. And if you're going to tell us you need the table, maybe give us a heads up so we can at least get our bill settled first before kicking us out. Not a great way to end an otherwise fun evening. Not sure if I'll be back here anytime soon.

The quality of tacos can even not be a fast food... We heart Dos casinos from a friend but he went there 3 years ago, so, some things has been changed I guess in 3 years...

    The alcohol was well-priced, but the food was entirely disappointing. The portions were small and the tortillas used for the quesadillas were dry and flavorless. The worst part of all of this was that the food was over-priced and service was just mediocre. It seems like a fun happy hour spot, where you're paying less for bad food.

    From the moment we walked in, we know that this was going to be a great place to take the kids. Everybody was extremely nice and more than accommodating to them (5 and 2). Both kids received a toy and a kids menu with great options. The food was fantastic, the service was outstanding, and the ambiance was great. We will definitely eat here again when we're back in NYC.

    I took some family here after a day of exploring NYC and it was the perfect place to settle down, relax, and enjoy delicious food. The menu is a bit pricey and the restaurant was VERY dark, but that is nothing compared to the DELICIOUS food, yummy cocktails and friendly staff. Best meal of their trip.

    My friends and I are foodies, so we love a place that has a great starter menu along with an variety of sides to choose. All was well with the food and drinks, however the server completely insulted my friend and I (a party of two) by writing on the check - "Gratuity is NOT INCLUDED!" What!?!? Duh, we knew that! To top it off, he circled what he thought was an appropriate tip range. Did he assume that we were not going to tip him because we were women or black and Asian? Not sure. I would say don't assume, and judge a book by its cover. I traditionally type a minimum of 20% for decent service, if you do a great job I will go up to 30-50% of my bill. As I mentioned I'm a foodie, your service can make the experience all the better.

    Went to dinner with my boyfriend on Halloween. The restaurant has a lively, decorative atmosphere that would likely be great for groups. The chips and salsa were great and the portion was large! However, the food portions were relatively small for the price. I was not blown away by the roast pork and I was still hungry afterwards. Also, DO NOT GET THE SIDE OF MUSHROOMS! They were not your typical portobello, button, or white but rather some gross, nasty chewy looking thing. Service was prompt and attentive. Overall, the chips and salsa was the best part. GO GATORS!

    i was a bit disappointed in the limited menu selections. While everything was very tasty, i was looking for more authentic Mexican style food.The offerings were very limited. There were 4 of us & we each ordered a full entree.With our entrees they gave 1 very small bowl of rice & beans to share.Enough for each person to have 1 spoonful.Most Mexican restaurants I've been to usually include refried beans & rice with each entree. In general the prices were higher than most quality Mexican restaurants. Both the Sangria and Guacamole were very good but overly expensive. The service was outstanding as the waiters were very attentive and responsive. Summary-good (not great) food in a nice casual environment.

    The guacamole is why we went back. Really good and lots of warm chips to scoop it up. Delicious, but hardly a bargain. Other dishes were just OK, with the exception of tacos asada. Didn't come as described on menu (no carmelized onions, no guac), and so hot the dish was not edible - even for those in our group who love their food super spicy. Should have some with a warning.

    Met some girlfriends for girls night out and wanted a restaurant near Grand Central. It was a very fun environment and the chips and guacamole were excellent. Sangria was just OK - I've had better. Service was excellent. Fish tacos had amazing flavor but were served cold. Regardless, I still loved it and would highly recommend it.

    My friend was visiting from out of town and we had a party to go to after dinner, so I found Dos Caminos. It was perfect for a group and lots of fun. It was packed, with lots of energy. The drinks were good and strong and the food was really good! Will definitely go there again with a group on a Saturday night.

    We ate an early dinner at 5:00, having a 7:00 theatre event. At that time restaurant was empty, but by the time we left, very full with locals. Started with traditional guacamole - excellent! We each had a house margarita - pretty good, a little tart. My wife had the cochinitas - excellent and I had the chicken enchiladas (each with a different sauce topping) - excellent. Service was very good, waiter and staff very attentive, but not too much. When in NY again, will for sure eat here again.

    Ordered a bottle of wine, after 10 minutes the staff coulden´t find the wine so we took Another wine. The starter arrived and still no wine! The staff coulden´t find that wine eaither so ordered some beer instead. We dide´t get the beer Before arrival of our entres, the staff excuised several times and we did´nt have to pay for the beers. One thing i can´t accept is that they didn´t hold the starter Before we get our beers. Don´t visit this resturant, can´t belive that this resturant was fulld booked.

    It seems like most people want to sit outside. I wasn't in the mood since I recently just hurt my leg. The steps down to the bathroom were daunting for me, they did tell me there was an elevator if I went outside and around. Seemed like too much work. I thought for a mexican place the margaritas were just ok. I wasn't impressed. We got the guac, which was good. I had the shrimp quesadilla, which was awesome. My friend had the veggie taco ,also good. I feel the the inside needs a redo. I like the vibe at the soho location.

    Dos Caminos is an attractive, comfortable restaurant with well-spaced seating that's good for conversation. We ate inside early on a Sunday evening when everyone was outside on the large streetside patio--full when we left--so it was probably quieter than usual; may be noisier when the weather chills out. Service friendly and attentive; the waiter made helpful recommendations. Fresh, delicious salads; terrific plantain empanadas; flavorful spicy barbequed goat; decent soft beef tacos. Dishes are well-spiced, but you can probably ask for milder. Only two complaints: didn't see hard tacos, which we prefer, and food arrived lukewarm; hot would be more enjoyable. Bottom line: great to have a civilized Mexican restaurant in the neighborhood.

    I have been to Dos Caminos many, many times and it is usually good. It is never a ground breaking restaurant but is usually consistent, however, last Saturday evening, my husband and I went there and were very disappointed. My frozen Margherita was not very good, the guacamole was fair, at best and my salad was tasteless. Nothing seemed very fresh to me, especially the grilled chicken in my salad. I do not think I will going back anytime soon, if their quality is going down, which seems to be the case.
