    The pictures on the website are very misleading, it portrays it as a quaint rooftop. This couldn’t be further from the truth. It is a tourist trap, you can’t hear what others in your party are saying, and the whole open “rooftop” is covered by umbrellas, so it doesn’t feel like a rooftop at all. If you’re not looking for a cheesy dinner, don’t choose this place.

    Great place. Music was a little too loud for my taste but i could take it for the time i was there. The waiters and atmosphere had great energy. It was my sons birthday and he was happy. We did the pinata dessert and it was a hit. Drinks and food were good. I definitely want to come back. The only thing i was a lil disturbed by was theres a woman checking bags before you come in. Ive never been to a restaurant that has to do this. While i didn't care to open my bag it made me weary of the type of place i was entering. Then i saw a group in front of me who was caught with a liquor bottle in a bag trying to go in. So then it made sense why they do this. But still i dont like seeing a bag check. Otherwise everything was great. I definitely want to go back for my birthday. Also love my skull cups we got to take home.

    The place is nice, we were supposed to have the view experience but they gave us a table where we were facing a wall. We were so disappointed for the food quality and quantity, we ordered a fish taco, ceviche and a plate, and none of these is tasty, I paid 200$ ( CAD ) I waisted my money, I’m staying only 2 days in NYC I wish i chose another nice restaurant for this budget, stuff were rude trying to take the plates even we mentioned we’re not done yet, terrible experience as a first time in NYC. I will share this experience in Google.

    All of the portions are rather small for the price. The food was mediocre. I did not enjoy the food and the service was slow. The waiter did not check in on our table often, was rude, and it was difficult to get someone’s attention for the check. There are plenty of other Mexican restaurants that will give you far better service and portions for the same price.

    The food is really OK as well as the location and the decoration. The staff is friendly and quick, most of the time too quick like in a fast food restaurant. But the noise, sorry the music, is really too loud. Choose between being a dance club or a good restaurant but don't try to be both at the same time

    Music can be too loud sometimes bc I’m screaming across my table. Now I just ask to sit outside and everything is perfect. The vibe is always right the food and drinks are always right. This has definitely become a go to spot for me. I love how the manager is always walking around making sure things are perfect and looking for ways to improve. A+

    We had to ask for a check 4 times After they took our order, they never came back to get our next drink order, even though we asked several times I probably would’ve at least 4-5 drinks, but only ended up having 2. Otherwise, food was great! Fish taco was amazing.
