    I really liked this place. I went on Valentine's Day and when I first saw it, it looked like a chain restaurant but the decoration, menu and service made the difference. It is big and cozy at the same time. The food is great! I felt it was a bit pricey but, hey! It's New York City. It was worth it.

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. We all enjoyed our food, especially the BBQ shrimp appetizer. We all agreed we'd be happy to return. However, it was difficult to find with the "official" address of 150 E. 42nd when in fact stating E 41st St and 3rd Ave would have been better. We all got lost trying to find the place.

    Went for lunch with friends because we all work nearby. Seems to be aspiring to be a fine-dining spot, but service was spotty. Menu slightly misleading as well. I ordered a skirt steak torta and got a sandwich on Italian hero bread smeared with some tiny bits of vegetables and about 2 ounces of meat. They cleared some of our dishes while others were still eating. Asked for water and got a glass of seltzer. Good guacamole, prepared tableside, but overall, a bit disappointing.

    Dined on 1/31/2009
    While the food was probably just as good as at Dos Caminos, the decor was a bit "fake pot plant", and ambience was definitely that of a chain restaurant brought over from the Mid West. Eg: waiter left a little card on the table with his name on it which was not cool. I was half expecting a free soup and salad to turn up. In summary: Not sophisticated enough for Manhattan, and had just a little touch of TGI-Fridays to it.

    I really like this restaurant - have been for lunch and dinner. A little pricey but not too much so - the portions are appropriately sized and the food is delicious. It is very pretty. The only thing I didn't like is that there is very loud music - playing all the time and I felt it took away from the dining experience. Highly recommend.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009

    So, I've been here several times now. My advice . . . skip the traditional fare and go with the specials. They tend to be a bit more pricey, but are really worth it. Standard mexican fare is just average, truthfully, as is the Guacamole (pricey). However, I had an absolutely delightful Tuna dish that was perfectly cooked (rare) with some excellent spices - delicious.

    Maybe it's the times or perhaps the timing on Saturday night (early - 7pm) in mid-town on a long weekend, but Sinigual was deserted. The food was really overall very good, but we all went crazy without any normal chips and salsa - whatever they provided as chips and salsa was shockingly weak. Who's ever heard of going to a Mexican restaurant that didn't serve salsa and chips? The gucamole was excellent, but again, what was provided as chips was extremely disappointing. If they could fix their salsa and chips shortcoming, everything else was very good.

    I liked it but it is really too noisy during the early evening to carry on a basic conversation. It gets a big bar crowd that was spilling on to our dining space. They should lower the music and perhaps the place can calm down a bit. the food is good and portions generous. the prices reasonable.
