A word from La Condesa
Here's more proof that New York City does just splendidly in the Mexican food department, thank you very much. It's all about knowing where to look, and right now, that means looking at the corner of Broadway and 144th. La Condesa pays homage to one of Mexico City's most stylish, artistic neighborhoods by nailing its cuisine, then adding a gallery to the dining room for good measure. On the menu, you'll find key Mexico City classics that fuse together traditional flavors from all over Mexico; on the walls, the owners host exhibitions for emerging Latin American artists. Taken together, these two elements create a destination for phenomenal food and interesting art, and it's only going to get better. Executive Chef Jorge Galicia also happens to be an award-winning mixologist; as soon as La Condesa gets its liquor license, you can count on the cocktails being second to none.Continued

La Condesa reviews from OpenTable diners
- Solid Mexican near City CollegedeliusfanVIPDined on 7/23/2013This was a very good find, indeed; the dishes were not overly complex, but the tastes were really quite lovely. I enjoyed my enchiladas with a "frutti di mare" twist, and my dining companion's skirt steak and shrimp combo had an excellent sauce; I would probably return just to order that dish if nothing else! Fresh guacamole still had chunks of avocado, proving it was, indeed, freshly made just moments ago. The salsa that accompanied (dare I say it was epazote?) had a nice smoky flavor. And the meringue dessert we finished with just blew away any dessert I've had at a Mexican restaurant (except, of course, the tres leches cake at Atlanta's Zocalo, but who's counting!); it was light, airy, and dressed simply with strawberries. Heavenly.Special Features:
- Very nice, small restaurant.TomLDined on 6/19/2013Very nice, small restaurant. Food was quite good and the wait staff was very friendlySpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- A little more flavor to the foodOutalotDined on 5/26/2013Four of us for brunch. 2 breakfast burritos, 1 huevos rancheros, and 1 poached eggs dish cuban style. The burritos were HUGE though the ingredients were a bit bland and not very well blended together. The other dishes were pretty good and well portioned. Not crowded -- a reservation for Sunday brunch was definitely unnecessary. My only complaint on the service was having to ask them to turn down the top 40's hits twice because they were blasting the music so loudly we couldn't hear each other speak. Not the best brunch ambiance, but this place has great potential and excellent coffee. Will definitely be trying them again, as this neighborhood lacks decent brunch, and hopefully they'll only get better!Special Features:
- Skip La Condesa!!cmwarwinDined on 5/5/2013This was a horrible experience! We wanted to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with some Latino friends. La Condesa sounded good. IT WASN'T! First, the noise level was through the roof. The music was too loud. Worse, it was cheesy American pop. You'd think on Cinco de Mayo you'd hear some Mexican music. We waited a very long time for a server, then waited at least 20 minutes for the drinks to arrive. The margaritas & guacamole were the ONLY good thing we had there. We ordered a second round of drinks. THEY NEVER CAME! Our mains were overpriced & not good: the shrimp tiny and tasteless; the lamb was tasty, but mostly bones & fat, very little meat. During the meal NO ONE CAME TO REFILL WATER, CLEAR DISHES, or check on our needs. Very disappointing.
- Not even sure...OpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 5/4/2013I wanted to love this place, but the staff was so inexperienced, they had no clue how to properly serve food for a quality experience. Example? Our fresh guacamole appetizer arrived 15 minutes later...while the same server stopped and started making drinks several times before finishing them 20 minutes later. And still...no water or offer to serve other non-alcoholic beverages. Delicious, plentiful bowl of guacamole...about 10 chips in a tiny cone. Guacamole is meant to be shared! TWO minutes later....still before water was served, ( I asked three times for water) they brought out my salad, drowned in spicy dressing--even though server said it wasn't spicy. I asked for the salad to be my entree. Still no water and no space to tell the rest.
- I arrived with low expectations!OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 3/23/2013I arrived with low expectations! I am from Santa Fe, New Mexico, and I have been to the La Condesa section of Mexico City many times. I arrived at New York's La Condesa with a party of 8 and we ordered many different things from the menu. All of it was excellent: great ingredients cooked to perfection in great sauces. The staff was very friendly and attentive. This restaurant indeed "pays homage to one of Mexico City's most stylish, artistic neighborhoods by nailing its cuisine." I don't get to New York very often, but sure want to return to its La Condesa.Special Features:
- Unforgettable BirthdayOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 3/20/2013La Condesa ended my birthday on such a great note. Not only did I experience amazing costumer service, the food and drinks were superb! I will definately come back and recommend this place to all of my friends. The staff truly expressed that they cared about our satisfaction to every detail in the restaurant.Special Features:
- There was a piece of metalOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 3/8/2013There was a piece of metal in my food and the manager/owner was too busy to come and say sorry. I had to get up and find him. He made a number of excuses, but the bottom line is the only thing that should have been said was sorry. I will NEVER go back here again.

- Give your review a titleSherryDined on 11/7/2012Upon my visit they were still fine tuning their business, so I'd have to go back to try it again to give an accurate rating. They also didn't have a liquor license, which I didn't know, or we'd have brought our own bottle.
- BYOB!AchilleVIPDined on 10/5/2012Fairly new restaurant, great service, and very affordable food. Best of all its BYOB (they havent received there liquour license yet).Special Features:
