Noise level was painful. The music was so loud, we could only speak to the person sitting right next to us; no group conversation was possible. A group of 4 or 5 came as we were leaving and they decided to leave, too, because of the sound level.
So with that, and the food being only mediocre, I would never go here again.
Not the view i expected but nice ambient
Weird vibe.. not what photos show. Can’t order food on the rooftop inside is weird. Drinks were not good
Great venue and foood but way too loud for a Sunday afternoon
Not great service. The waiter placed my fork on my plate and tried to take it away without even asking if I was done! I still had 2 out of 4 enchiladas left! When I told him to stop and to please hand me a clean fork, he didn’t even apologize! So rude!!
I made a reservation for Cantina Rooftop assuming that we could get seated outdoors on the rooftop but instead was told when we got there that the rooftop was reserved for a private party and a curtain covered the entire thing. The waiter also brought us menus that were different from the menus on the website for the rooftop. However, he and the chef were accommodating to prepare meals on the rooftop menu. The ambiance is nice and they okay good music but it is loud and hard to talk to people/be heard. The guacamole was super good and the enchiladas were different but not bad. The service was kind of slow but the servers were polite and sweet.

Reserved a table at the rooftop in advance and asked for view. We came and were seated in the floor below as the rooftop was closed for a private party. That floor had no windows. Atmosphere was friendly. A bit too noisy but the music was good. The food was so so. Limited menu. The qusadia was flat and dry , hamburger tasted good but the fries were too salty. Fish was way too salty. Service was friendly. Overall disappointing.
Made reservations with understanding we'd be on the roof. When we arrived there was a large event with a super loud DJ. Then we were taken downstairs to an indoor dining room. The food and service were excellent but the glassware was all plastic, making it seem a bit cheap, despite paying $25-35 per plate. Definitely call first to make sure you can get a rooftop table. Very disappointing. However, the free tequila shots at the end were a nice touch.
I had an amazing experience! The waitress Catalina was one of the best servers I've ever had. The outside rooftop view is beautiful and the retractable roof is AMAZING! We were outside and it started pouring so they closed the roof and we sat outside with the same beautiful view while it rained. Felt like something out of a movie. Will definitely be back time and time again
I enjoyed my stay and I had great service
took my wife here she had an amazing time the place is beautiful great music great food
It was great but I expected better service than what we received also I noted that there was a birthday but no one came with the birthday celebrations
I've eaten some amazing food in various spots throughout the city and this did not disappoint!! The food was utterly amazing and the atmosphere was beautiful! The DJ on the rooftop was pretty awesome also! Such a fun atmosphere for a variety of events! We will definitely be back on our next visit!!!
We absolutely loved Cantina Rooftop. The food was great. The service from Michael was amazing. He was super attentive and caring. The atmosphere was loud but fun. The rooftop is an amazing view.
Loved this place for the views and the yummy food and margaritas! Perfect anniversary dinner spot.
I enjoyed my self my the young women at were the hostess were beyond rude.
The music was extremely loud which made conversations impossible. We go out to restaurants to catch up with friends and family and talk. But this restaurant made it impossible. Food was okay but I am a vegetarian which led to very few (3 to be precise) options. So, not recommended for vegetarians or vegans.
Overall a good experience, good music and good food. Prices were a little high but had a great time here. Our server was very kind will come back
Terrible service and automatic 20% gratuity add to bill and not told about it. It’s too bad the service was terrible because it’s a great location and great vibe.
Our waiter was very very slow. Asked him for hot sauce and waited for so long we had to ask a different waiter. It was also VERY loud. There was hardly anyone there but the dj was blasting music way too loud for 6pm on a Friday.
Aside from the DJ being a bit too loud, I had a blast. The food was really fresh and really good.
My friends and I were looking for a fun rooftop brunch spot and definitely found it at Cantina. The ambiance was great - mixed age crowd, friendly servers, Latin music playing the entire time - overall awesome vibes. Our group shared the french toast and chipotle guacamole- both were delicious. My main dish of Huevos Rancheros was good, but wish the tortilla was crispier (became soggy with the tomato sauce). Overall I give this place an 8/10.
Food, atmosphere was great for my husband's birthday brunch, the waitress couldn't understand us most of the time though, making ordering difficult. Birthday candles and hat were hilarious!
The tacos, the drinks everything was amanzing. Love this place will definitely come back.
Excellent service. Great view. Greater vibes from staff and other guests. The DJ could lower the sound a bit. There were plenty of times I had to yell to my friends across the table and the waiter because it was so loud.
Drinks were awesome. View was great. Music was too loud too early. Food was only ok. Great crowd. Good service.
Great food, good service and nice views of midtown buildings.
The music was extra loud though for 6:30pm on Thursday night. Fun DJ and dance floor though.
Hostess was horrible but overall the place was good!
Music way too loud. No one can hear each other talk. Music was good DJ was good and entertaining,fun but overall music was so loud that it was not something I would do again.
This is my second visit this summer and look forward to going back. The food was amazing and the service great! We stuck around a bit after dinner to enjoy the music. A very fun night!
A very genuine Mexican place in Manhattan. Great atmosphere and food. You must try the frozen margarita.
It was unremarkable. The rooftop doesn’t have the best views and it was surprisingly difficult to get an iced coffee. I eventually just asked of a glass of ice and for a cup of coffee and did it myself. The food was good, but not overly memorable once we left. The patrons in the restaurant were awesome! I would say if you want a covered rooftop for a large party it’s a better choice than for 2 people who want a view.
Awesome tacos but SUPER LOUD. Like I can’t hear myself talking to someone. The view and the food made up for it.
Fun, charming and very friendly. Solid Mexican fare served with a smile in an open air setting. Great place for drinks or a casual meal with friends. A definitive go to place.
Some friends and I visited for brunch on a weekend. At noon, the restaurant was SO loud that we were incapable of hearing ourselves think, much less each other. We left after 10 minutes.
If you like an insane amount of noise and having it completely necessary to scream to hear one another, this is just the spot. The food was basically perfect, but an intense scene for brunch in my opinion. I’m sure others will love it though.
The food here was great, there was a DJ playing music which made it a lot of fun. The only reason I won't give 5 stars is because the waiter told us that the tequila shots would be cheap and then charged us $58 for only 4 shots.
Loved our waitress, great atmosphere and the food was absolutely amazing. My two friends and I were visiting from Toronto and came to Cantina. Upon arrival they asked for IDs, we are 20 - underage in the US but legal in Canada. She said its fine but let our server know so we couldn't order any drinks. Right before we left the restaurant, our server brought us tequila shots, compliments of the gentlemen a few tables down. We were confused because the server was aware we were underage, but assumed it was okay because she brought it. Two of us took the shots quickly, and the other went to get a lime. As she was about to take her shot, a bouncer or security came and yelled at her. We didn't want to get our amazing waitress in trouble so we told him that the men brought it over. I understand us being underage and drinking is breaking a law, and the restaurant could get in trouble, but we did not need to be yelled at publicly. Other than the scene he caused, we had a great time and I would absolutely recommend to a LEGAL friend.
We went in for drinks and apps on a Saturday around 3. It took us 20 minutes to get our first drinks. There was only wrestling on every channel. After that the wrong food was brought to the table.
