Met a friend there. We had
margaritas, quac, and sliders. All were very good. Service was quick and friendly. Will go back"

There was no hostess at the
hostess booth, and we finally had to track her down, tell her we had a reservation, and watch as she disappeared and didn't come back for 10 minutes. Then she took us upstairs, and realized that no one had cleaned our table. So then she had us awkwardly wait in the upstairs hallway, forgot about us, came back and said "Oops, no one has cleaned it yet," etc. Then we were seated, 25 minutes later...and I had to approach a waiter after 10 more min because no one had so much as said "Hi, I'm your waiter" or "here is some water." The waiter seemed upset that he had to wait our table, and was rude the whole time. In sum: Pretty good food, but WAY overpriced for quality, and I've had better service at a Panera Bread."

Food was ok, never been to a
Mexican restaurant that didn't serve cheese with their fajitas- had to order it as an extra side. Service was very slow. When we arrived place was pretty empty, server took a while to come over, as restaurant filled our, Our waiter was harder and harder to find. No plans to return any time soon"

While my friend and I had a great
time catching up, we were surprised to be ushered out at 9:30pm. We know it's FiDi, but 9:30pm still seems a little early to close for the dinner crowd."

Really good food and drinks! Love
the ambience and it really is a standout among the other restaurants in the area. The service was pretty bad, however our waitress informed us that another waitress had quit earlier that day leaving her short-staffed, so what can you do."

My son and I had a very nice
dinner here once we got noticed by the hostess and waitresses. It was a busy night and once we got into tasty appetizers and entrees with good Mexican beer all was forgiven. On this weekend night the ambiance was loud and energetic-may be hard to have a conversation. We didn't dine outdoors (in the street!) where there were tables set up for several adjacent restaurants, but it looked like fun."

Although the food was very good,
it was unbelievably noisy in there. Others said the Sangria was great. It wasn't. They had to remake ours and said that others had complained, as well. This is the kind of place that's fun when you're 20. . . dark, loud, crowded, decent food, strong drinks."

The food is good, a little on the
pricier side. The service was pretty good, but our waitress wasn't all that attentive. Be prepared for it to be loud and dark."

I came here with my family on
Father's Day hoping to enjoy the nice weather in the outdoor dining area. Unfortunately, it basically consisted of a series of wobbly benches under a tent. The tables were cramped, small and diners shared a table with other parties. The benches had no backs and were very uncomfortable and wobbly. We constantly felt like we were going to fall backwards. For the price of the food here, I would have expected a better experience."

Great food for vegetarians. I also
recommend trying their blue margarita - delicious and strong!"

I love this place! Its right right
around the corner from work, and I often take my team out there. The food is delicious! Guacamole is very fresh and super quick. If you are into hot and spicy stuff, try the medium guacamole first (can run a bit spicy! and you can always ask for peppers on the side). Chicken chimi and queso are super yum too. Vegetarian quesidilla is very light and a perfect portion! I have a favorite table and till date they've made every attempt they seat me there. During evenings, it can get very busy and you definitely feel the energy. Its got the perfect mexican charm! I would highly recommend it."

The restaurant is VERY noisy.
Often, I had to ask my lunch companion what they were saying since the noise level is high. It is also very dark, as a result you will have a hard time reading the menu and reading your check. The food is good but overpriced."

Living in central NJ where there
is a large Mexican community you would think there would be a decent Mexican restaurant . . . not! Ha So worth the trip to NYC for this restaurant."

The food is beyond good! Flavor
like I've never tasted. The margaritas are the best and they don't shy away with the tequila . My group loved it and we plan to return every year."

Great as always,my go to place
especially living so close by. From ambiance to good just like good"
Dined on 4/4/2013
Consistently good and a fun place
to catch up with friends. If you order the fajitas, be aware that (1) there is enough in one order for two people and (2) the tables are too small to accommodate all the plates that come with that order. BUT . . . it was GREAT and I'd order it again. Quesadillas are fantastic too! Can't go wrong here."
