Mexicana in New York
I have lived in Mexico for a number of years and this so far is the closest I have come to authentic Mexican cuisine with a little tex-mex thrown in.
I haven't had the margaritas yet, but that will be next on any future visits.

Great Spot for a date
I went here primarily because my date told me she loved fish tacos. I being a vegetarian had a great 'Fire Roasted Vegetable Platter', and my date loved the fish tacos. Overall, it has a great vibe, the service is incredible, and I couldn't have enjoyed it more.

Fresh and Flavorful!
On a Friday night, the service was excellent. The guacamole made tableside is a nice touch. We loved the fish tacos, lobster quesadilla, carnitas, and fajitas. The ambiance is warm and inviting. The restaurant is louder in the front but much less loud in the back.

This was my second visit to this restaurant. I enjoyed it as much as I did the first time.
My guest really enjoyed herself. She said she never had ribs as good as offered at Sinigual's.
Another great comment....we were not rushed, and I always appreciate that.
I look forward to visiting again in the future.

Great option near Gct
My group of friends was looking for a place nearby grand central terminal. One suggested sinigual, having been there before, so we went with it. The place is nicely decorated and the service was fantastic. Food came out quickly and they were extremely accommodating for me, a vegetarian. They gave me an option for veggie enchiladas- not even on the menu- without hesitation. And they tasted great! Good drinks too. A little pricey for what it was, but is to be expected in that neighborhood.

Great Mexican food and drinks
We had a large party of eight and the wait staff did a great job with our table. The jalapeno margarita was fantastic.

Upscale and refreshing Mexican
All the seafood was quite good. Interesting menu. Nice flavorful dishes. Service was quite good. Only complaint was maybe the portions could have been a bit bigger.

Singular is a great place to unwind after work. Good food and drinks. Staff is attentive and provide great service.

Good Lunch spot
Loved the ambience and the layout of this spot. The food was good and the price was not as much as I expected. I will definitely take my team here again later in the year.

Great for a group
Met a few girlfriends for a bday dinner. Food was very very good, and waiter very nice (second round of margaritas we had to prompt for a lime alice, but good after that). A great deal of fun and good times--we will be back.

Nothing short of outstanding!
Been here several times, and each time I walk away thoroughly satisfied. Again, brought clients from out of town to dinner here, and they could not get enough of the table side Guac or the Steak Nachos.
The main dishes are no slouches either - the Chicken Taco Salad is enough to feed a small country.
Service is on point - almost a little too efficient.
And for a Tues night, the place was hoping - not a table to be had.

Great Margarita's, great food
Very good Margarita's, delicious food and excellent service. Our waiters recommendations were excellent!

Great Location and Great food
When in NYC and Times Square this is a really nice place to hit....food was great and service is awesome...the Blackberry Margarita was great!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food wonderful but
Service was awful! There were six of us in the group for lunch. We did not get our water until we were in the middle of our meal. We asked NUMEROUS times and asked a number of servers and eventually we did get our water. Maybe the waiters and the servers were just busy that day but they can look and act cheerful instead of looking really mad.

A solid place
I only came here for a catch up with an old friend. Food was solid -- although admittedly my steak was a little too chewy. Otherwise, wait staff and the hostess were very friendly and amiable. They were also thoughtful about not making us feel rushed. We were seated in an area away from the bar so we could hear each other. I had a pleasant experience overall. It is nice to find places in NYC that aren't too crowded on a Friday night who have better trained staff.
I'd have to rate this place better than most big chain Mexican restaurants north and south of it. Sin igual to those places!

Beautiful restaurant - lovely
Beautiful restaurant - lovely decor. The meal was FANTASTIC. Fresh, tasty and more than enough to eat. Our server was very polite and helpful when we asked questions. We made a 1:00 lunch date and they were prompt -- took us straight to our table -- no waiting.

Sinigual has become a tradition
My collegues and I come here at least twice a year for an after-trade show dinner. They have a list of unique Margaritas - I just had the Grilled Pineapple Margarita. But it's the Guacamole they make at tableside that keeps us coming back.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, a little noisy, but very helpful for those of us toting along a one year old. Gets a large dinner crowd, reservations help.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just Go Already!
Great food, really top notch if you wanna eat mexican in NY. The service was great and i would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone wether your a big group, romantic evening or if you wanna go out with a friend. Just go already! You won't be disappointed.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wanted to take my coworker somewhere really nice for lunch on her birthday and found Sinigual on OpenTable. The service was awesome and the food was so fresh and delicious! Loved the decor and energetic environment! Absolutely loved it and will be back soon!!!
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pineapple Margarita is a must (very spicy!) Food is delicious and portions generous.

Special Night Out
Sinigual was recommended by a co-worker and we tried it out for our 34th Anniversary and were happy we went. It was a bit noisy for me but it's a lovely restaurant and we liked were we were seated. The mango mojitos were great as were the appetizer and entree --no room for dessert! The service was very good too. We will recommend Sinigual to our family and friends.
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good Place in group
We experienced a good diner nevertheless we get the entree while we were still eating the appetizer, the service was a bad quality always in hurry and pushing us

Great Midtown Lunch
If you are looking for a lunch spot that is not stuffy or formal, this might be your spot. A little expensive so go for a business lunch.

Nice upscale Mexican food in Murray
Excellent Guacamole was the highlight of the food. I had the fish tacos which were ok. We also ordered the scallop ceviche which was a special, so I'm not sure they'll have it regularly, but regardless, it wasn't good and reminded me dinner specials are usually something the chef threw together to push product they're trying to get rid of.

Happy hour not in dining area
We loved our dining experience here. My only disappointment was that they did not honor the happy hour drink prices despite that we were there during the happy hours and we requested to be at their dining area because we had dinner after. We had restaurants before where you can order the happy hour drinks even if you opt for the dining area because after the happy hour follows the dinner. I wish that management change their policy about thisl
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
a little disappointed
it would be nice to see the waiter more attended to our needs. We had to call him 4 times just to get water and bring us lemons (which he never did) and in the middle of our eating, they turned off or lower the light drastically. Wait until its empty or dim them slowly.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful Dining Experience
Sinigual never fails to impress me. I went with my friend Arne who was visiting from Norway and celebrating his birthday. He loved the food, potent margaritas, ambiance, lovely decor and most of all the service from our waiter Artemio. He is the best!!!

Elevated Mexican Restaurant
Been to this place for lunch , 1st time for dinner. Food is good. The Flan was amazing! Sangria wS very weak, even after the. 2nd try. They make a basil raspberry Lemonaide that is also amazing. Makes guacamole table side. To order. Great spot. Very energetic. Nice Atmosphere.

Accommodating to vegans
I am a vegan and had a great meal at Sinigual. When I told the waiter I was vegan, he immediately pointed to several items on the menu that could easily be veganized. I had a choice of at least 3 or 4 different dishes. I settled on vegetable enchiladas which came with 2 sides: black beans and rice. It was a delicious meal.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great recommendations from wait staff on food. Food fresh and nice modern twists to Mexican.
Nice grilled pineapple margaritas.
Would go back again if we are ever back in NYC.

We had a lovely dinner for our last evening in New York. The food was delicious, especially the guacamole made fresh at the table! I'd definitely go back the next time I'm in the city n

Luck WAS a Lady this night!
We took a chance...having never eaten here or heard for Sinigual before - through Open Table app found a restaurant close to Grand Central where a friend of ours was arriving and leaving back out of.
The food was phenomenal...the drinks were great...and our server was a real doll.
Recommend you try this place out!!

One of the best Mexican restaurants
One of the best Mexican restaurants. The shrimp entree is incredible.

Great service & food
The wait staff was terrific. Margaritas were awesome! Loved the guacamole made tableside. Our entriess were also very tasty. All in all, the experience was good and we will return.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved the food, loved the atmosphere, loved the service! I love to come here in a group and for a quiet conversation.
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
My brother and I enjoyed our dinner immensely. We share our birthdates and try to get together every year to toast one another. We had a brother who's not with us any more but also shared my birthday. Busy day, huh? The restaurant provided us with a treat for dessert - the fabulous Mexican flan - my first choice every time I come to Sinigual. My next most favorite dish and never disappoints me is the Roasted Pepper Tomato Soup - perfection, scrumptious and something I talk about to friends. Over the years that I've been dining at Sinigual I've had the opportunity to rave and recommend it to others who have in turn told me how much they enjoyed their meals. I'm so glad Sinigual is in the hood.

great mexican food
I enjoy mexican food and found this restaurant on the east side of town. great guacamole and the quesadilla's really good
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was maybe my seventh
This was maybe my seventh or eighth time at Sinigual. It is closely located to my job and when we have lunch or dinner get togethers, we usually go here. Beautiful atmosphere, nice latin music, sangria is delicious as well as the Guacamole.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I decided to go to Sinigual (again) because I wanted to be sure I got some good Mexican food. That about says it all. The margaritas are good too.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I'll be back
It's always tough to find good Mexican in NY. And, it's always tough to find good food from other than a steakhouse in midtown. So, I was delighted to experience really good Mexican food sitting in the shadow of Grand Central station. Seems the Happy Hour is very poplular but the tables were just as busy as the bar. We were seated in the back, which was perfect, quieter, talkable. First thing you cannot ignore are the tortillas. They are made right there, the old-fashioned way, and they are delicious, unlike anything you will get anywhere else in the city, even in the boroughs. I was surprised to be asked how I like my steak when I ordered the fajitas, and even more surprised to get it that way. Everything was delicious, well paced.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The dishes we selected had amazing flavor. Fresh Guac was a huge plus!!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM

Fine Mexican dining
Hard to fine upscale Mexican food but you will find it here at Sinigual. Had the steak nachos and the guacamole to begin with and the both were delicious and not your Taco Bell kind. Ordered the carne asade y chimichurri which had a little kick to it but made the way I wanted. Dessert was the fried ice cream which just as yummy. Wasn't crazy over the chocolate creme brûlée. Drinks were of course margaritas and had shots of tequila as well. They are the size of a double! Definitely coming back. The service was just okay, they forgot to bring one soda and take one order but we worked everything out anyway.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were a party of eight and were accommodated very comfortably. We had the guacamole appetizer, which was excellent. The scallops were flavorful, as were the shrimp and chicken fajitas, and the ribs. Everyone raved about their entree. The sangria is an excellent choice as are the margaritas. Save room for desert. Try the flan which is crazy creamy and delicious. The service was attentive and professional. Thank you Lazaro for tending to all out needs. We would definitely return.

Great restaurant and location
My 4 friends and I have trouble finding a conveniently located restaurant with a table for 5 with good food and reasonable prices. This fits the bill. This is the 2nd time we've eaten here, and it was a bit loud this time, but not bad. The food is good. A soda, entree and a shared apetizer came to $35, including tax and tip. The waitstaff is efficient and friendly.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Convenient location...great drinks for the price. Guacamole is also good
12/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
One of the better upscale Mexican places in Manhattan. 3-4 blocks from Grand Central with a very relaxed ambiance. Totally appropriate for work/business lunches.
