    Loved the vegetable tacos and the guacamole is always superb. We had a great time when the DJ started playing music and the restaurant started filling up- the energy is high and fun there. Would recommend as a fun Friday night spot to let go of tensions from the work week!

    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.

    Not your run of the mill Mexican restaurant . This location is not as hectic Houston's ..very friendly ,accommodating staff. Our server, Chas,was great..kept our food and drinks flowing.....the food is just plain delicious..one of our favorites are the guacamole selections...the tortillas( just like mama use to make..we asked for more!)....everything is well prepared and savory. Can't wait to go back..an awesome stop over if you're in the Radio City vicinity ...a nice easy breezy walk over( burn some calories along the way)

    I had a great lunch, the cob salad, I enjoyed it thoroughly. It also came with yellow rice and black beans. That was an unexpected pleasure. For $15 that was great. The staff is polite and friendly. The restaurant is quite large, which is absolutely great for after work gatherings.

    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.

    I'm not talking about the ambience - that's still wonderful. The food on the other hand - tastes very commercialized. It's no longer "home cooked" tasting. Feels like everything gets the same grill flavor sprinkle on it and the amount of salt on the dishes is outlandish. I'm coming back after 6 months to this place - and usually frequent this one location. After this past dining experience, I will not be returning - it's just my palate and NOT the restaurant anymore.

    Unfortunately, our experience was not very enjoyable at this time around. Service was shockingly slow. We had finished our appetizers before being served the first set of drinks. Furthermore, the quality of service was very very poor. Lastly one of our party's members was extremely ill all night after having the steak entree. This was unfortunate because I have been to this location in the past and it was slightly better on food and service.

    I have to disagree with the other reviews claiming poor service. We were seated right away for our reservation and were given a table outside. Our waiter came over right away to take our drinks order. He came back quickly for the rest of our order and was attentive throughout the meal. He accommodated all of the changes we wanted to make to the dishes as well. The brunch is a good deal as you get a drink like a mimosa or margarita or juice and coffee or tea. I didn't love the rancheros but there were plenty of other items on the menu that looked good. My friends really liked the breakfast quesadillas. The guacamole was really good. I would definitely go back to this location.

    The last 2 times we ate there were nothing special. Food mediocre at best though the chips and salsas were delicious. Recently one person ordered a pineapple juice, which was served in a highball glass half full (about 3 shots worth). I complained to the server, who replied that that's how it's served in the restaurant. When I repeated that it was a meager portion for a glass of juice, she again said that's how the restaurant serves it and walked off. This was after another disinterested server spilled juice from an octopus dish on my father. Not going back.

    This is my 3rd visit to Dos Caminos 3rd Ave. Each time I have gone the food has been good but the service is just bad. I sat at the bar during Happy Hour and was basically ignored by the bartender. Even felt like they were bothered that I was there. I know your busy but in 2 hours you could not get me a glass of water??? And I have to literally stalk you to order food and drink??? I though that it was just an off night the first time this happened. But after the third its enough for me to say I will not be returning. Food is decent but there are pleanty of other places with the same cuisine but with better service.
