Vega Mexican Cuisine -
Best Restaurants in Hartsdale
Vega feels like many Mexican
restaurants that bill themselves as "authentic." Our meals were enjoyable but nothing stood out as special or memorable. Burritos, enchiladas and the fajitas were all tasty, and I had a pulled-pork entree that was tender but a little greasy for my liking. The table-side guacamole had nice flavor too. All in, we spent only about $60 per couple. Considering that we had cocktails but no separate appetizers (other than one shared $5 guacamole), and no dessert (they had no decaf coffee of any sort), the price was about right. Service was friendly and attentive. Oh ... and did I mention they had no decaf coffee?"

The food was awesome. Everything
tasted great, everything came out hot, and the margaritas were amazing. The guacamole could use some salt and better but it was pretty good. The service was just ok. To be fair, it was Cinco de Mayo, so the restaurant was crowded, but I have been to Vega on a non-holiday and the service is still just ok. They're not very good at seating based on reservation or when you arrived and the waitstaff sometimes forgets about you. The food does make up for it and it gives you the opportunity to eat and not be rushed."

Glad I made the resv.,VERY busy
for Cinco De Mayo. I love a Mexican rest that can really make a margaritta;I've had some terrible ones. The food here is very good. HOWEVER,I did not appreciate waiting 10min.to be seated next to the kitchen/busing area! It was extremely noisy anyway & this area was worse. The matra'd sat us with one menu(all he had),really?! "

The food at Vega is always great.
It is not your standard Tex-Max place - the food is fresher and not covered in cheese and salsa. The fish tacos and the steak dishes are my favorites. "

Very slow Service, I'm still
waiting for my second drink"

I loved that the food was fresh
and tasted clean! They use local ingredients when then can. By far best Mexican food in Westchester!"

The food was okay. It was
presented very well but did not stand out as restaurant-quality."

The fourth time is a charm. The
first time I dined at Vega, I was very disappointed in the food. NOW: Wonderful experience with excellent food (taste, quality and especially presentation)- This will is now "My Mexican Restaurant"."

had heard good things abuot the
restaurant from friends and neighbors but had never been there - the margaritas were generous and good and correctly priced - all the food was delicious - the corn chips tasted like they had just come out of the oven - the salsa tasted home-made and my friend's son usually doesn't like it - he wanted more rice to sop up his chipotle sauce = the huevos rancheros were delicious - my only criticism would be that the black beans were tasteless as were the refried beans"

One of my favorite neighborhood
restaurants. Good food and drinks, very pleasant service."

Went for a date night with my
husband on a Friday night. Was seated immediately. Had the guacamole for an appetizer, was made table side. It was okay, nothing that stood out. Then we had their signature cocktails, El Diablo which was delicious! I had the chorizo quesadilla which was outstanding, and my husband had the chicken ranchero which was mouth watering. Overall good entrees and cocktails. Skip the guac and try something different."

We have been to Vega at least 10
times and brought many different people with us. Everyone always told us what a great choice. Food was fabulous each time, atmosphere and drinks were great."
Dined on 9/27/2013
Wonderful yumminess and great
service! From the fresh made guacamole and salsa to the dessert, it is a wonderful venue. My godchildren also enjoyed their items from the kids' menu. It is a wonderful place for foodies young and old!"

My husband and I moved to
Westchester from Texas about 3 years ago. We have been on the hunt for good Mexican food and especially a good margarita, which have been harder to find than we had imagined. We have found both at Vega. We have tried several menu items by now and been pleased with everything, esp. the fajitas, carnitas, chile relleno and fish tacos. The margaritas are excellent."

i always enjoy the food, drinks
and friendly ambience at Vega. Prices are fair and servings are generous."
Dined on 7/5/2013
Food kind of spotty. First time I
ate, the food was prepared well. Second time the entrée was badly overcooked and dried out. Deep fried avocado was delicious. Rice pudding very ordinary. Wine list way overpriced, e.g. $9 a glass for a bottle which sells in the store for $10."
Dined on 7/5/2013
We had a lovely, relaxed, and
delicious experience. The restaurant is spotless, calm, and very attractive. The service was exceptional and not overbearing. The food was fresh and well presented. The margaritas were exceptional. Will definitely return."

Made reservations for Mother's Day
brunch. Nowhere in Open Table, nor on the restaurant's website, did it note that the Brunch menu is not available on "Special Occasions" which we only found out when we tried to order something off of the brunch menu. Ruined the whole experience. I've eaten here before and the food is good, but I was so disappointed with the surprise and the lack of an adequate explanation that I am seriously questioning whether or not to return. Very poorly run."
Dined on 5/12/2013
Food was really good and
restaurant was understandably crowded for Cinco de Mayo. Service was excellent and waiters were all in good moods. Would go back"
Dined on 5/5/2013
My first time at this lively spot.
Food is very good & they know how to make a great margaritta! I had a tamarine marg on the rocks-very tasty & they arn't cheap with the tequila! nachos were good. Fish tacos were tiny but very filling & good! the only disapointment was the flan,not good! Very lively bar area,although a bit noisy. I would return here."
Dined on 5/4/2013
Very strange blinking colored
lights in the bar area were a big distraction during the meal and made it hard to see and less relaxing and enjoyable. This has not been a problem on past visits. Turn them off or lose them. Food was great as usual; kitchen was backed up and had a big rush when we got there but they recovered and made it through OK, though a bit slower than usual."
Dined on 4/28/2013
Atmosphere is good but the food is
only so-so Mexican. Run of the mill and pretty boring."
Dined on 4/27/2013
The food was delicious and service
was top of the line. It wasnt crowded though so I expected the food arrive faster. We had to ask for the check due to us be on lunch hour."
Dined on 4/26/2013
Went for lunch and it was very
quiet, as few people were there. Had guacamole which was suppose to be med. spicy, but it had no spice. Last time there it was better. Quesadillas were great. My friend had chicken and I had corn and mushroom. Both wonderful, but a little too large for lunch."
Dined on 4/26/2013
I've eaten at Vega before and had
a lovely meal and good service. Friday's pork special was dry and tasteless; service was slow and surly. It will be a long time before I go back."

The lure of 1000 points got us to
Vega Mexican cuisine. We were seated right away and the waiter was very friendly and warm. We put in our drink and app orders and it took a really long time for food to come out (~20-25 minutes). The cumulative waitstaff wasn't particularly attentive: I dropped a fork and asked twice for another one, and never got it - I ended up sharing one with my wife (which was kinda fun) to have the appetizers. We had to flag down waiters to refill water through the meal too. Everyone was very polite and friendly. Our entrees were nothing inspiring - flavors were quite flat and bland, I had creamy chicken and wife had Chimichuri steak."

Careful what you order and ask
prices. I had a groupon and wanted to exchange my 2 glasses of wine for a bottle and pay the difference. I was told that the glasses of wine were $5 each. We decided to have the glasses and when I ordered another glass, I was charged. $9. I was told that with groupon they credit only $5 but when you buy, it cost $9. For $9 I could have ordered a better glass of wine instead of the house wine they give groupon customers."

Very loud on a Saturday night.
Hard to hear someone sitting across the table."

A modern type mexican restaurant
with good food, good drinks and great service."

Just a little dark for me at
night. Lovely decor otherwise. Good food and friendly services."
Dined on 4/2/2013
Went there with a group of
friends, everyone enjoyed their meals, drinks were STRONG but very good :)"
Dined on 3/18/2013
It was my first time here and I
was delightfully surprised. Probably the best Mexican restaurant in all of Westchester! Fresh fesh food! Many of the Mexican cuisine restuarants in the area are found lacking and the food seems microwaved."
Dined on 3/16/2013
I live about a ten minute walk
from the Hartsdale "downtown" area, where most restaurants don't seem to last very long. Vega has managed to stick around for a few years now which is great! Expect upscale mexican food and good drinks. The decor is trendy and fun, and the service is good too. I wouldn't say it's outstanding, but definitely worth going--especially if you are within walking distance! Get the mango cocktail."
Dined on 3/15/2013
This was the second time that I
have been here. I went for a Sunday brunch and had the steak and egg. The flavors were good but my plate was soupy. This place needs a little TLC. some of the walls are chipped and the back rest to some of the table are missing."
Dined on 3/10/2013
Recommend the fish tacos, and the
table side prepared guacamole. Also, great Margaritas. The place was packed, so reserve early."
Dined on 3/2/2013
Service was lousy and it took
almost 15 minutes to get water, restaurant was empty but we were sat in the crowded bar area even when there were lots of open tables in the dining room. Drinks were so-so, but they were definitely not worth Manhattan prices."
Dined on 3/1/2013
Great food good service. Very good
portion sizes. The restaurant prides itself on high quality food and it shows."
Dined on 2/22/2013
Overall good food and service but
felt drinks were a little pricey."
