I first became familiar with Mexican food while living in Los Angeles over 40 years ago eating at Lucy's El Adobe (a favorite of Linda Ronstadt and her friend, then Governor Jerry Brown) and from a truck near my school. After returning to New York, I specifically sought out the few Mexican eateries that were around then such as the Cactus Cafe and Carumbas (remember the 'Ridiculous'?). Eventually, I discovered Canyon Road. What a treasure!

I have been going there for a couple of decades, and I can say that I have never been disappointed in the food, the drinks, the service, the price or the customers, whether at the tables or the bar area. Today was no exception.

From the host to the waiter and busboys, the staff were all smiles, attentive and accommodating from the moment of our arrival to the second we left. No special requests were frowned upon.

The drinks were mixed perfectly with just the right amount of salt (and cheap; it was happy hour even though it was Sunday).

Finally, from the slightly warmed chips/pureed salsa (the best anywhere, period) all the way through the appetizers (the guacamole was incredible), the entrees (the duck burrito is always so delicious it's hard for me to order any other dish) and the dessert (the flan was the perfect way to end the meal) made of this one of the best dining experiences in recent memory.
It's probable that this review might not sufficiently describe an incredibly enjoyable experience which was definitely enhanced by the overall atmosphere created by Canyon Road. At no time did we feel that we should feel privleged to have been allowed to eat there (this week, another restaurant told us that they may not be able to hold our reservation when we called to say we would be 5 to 10 minutes late), or that we were there long enough and therefore we should slowly get out.

Every thing about Canyon Road is consistent and top shelf. Forget about the rating cap of five, this restaurant is clearly a 5 plus.

Great classic Southwestern fare that has not changed in quality in over 20 years. Love to go back to a place that is guaranteed to be consistently good. Service is very good.

Took a friend here for her birthday and we both loved it. Our favorite UES Mexican restaurant went out of business and this was our frist time at Canyon Road. The home made guacamole was a knockout and the chips were also exceptional (fresh, thin, not greasy or too salty, and lots of crunch). I loved the chicken fajitas, I'm not sure exactly how they spiced the chicken but it was extremely tasty as were the veggies. My friend had the roasted chicken quesadilla which she said was delicious.

Neither of us are really drinkers but we both had margaritas which packed plenty of punch for us. I highly recommend the pomegranate margarita on the rocks. If you prefer frozen, the mango marg was fantastic.

The wait staff was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. They put a candle in my friend's flan and sang Happy Birthday to her which was very sweet. They also did not charge me for her dessert as she was the birthday girl!

While the prices were slightly higher than our former favorite Mexican place, they were not outrageous. Overall, it was a great experience and we will certainly be back to Canyon Road.

We requested and were accommodated with a quiet table in the corner,

It was unusually quiet and not crowded (probably because of holiday parties & not near the 5th avenue touristy attractions

I love Canyon Road! It's such a warm & cozy place & the service is excellent. The food is consistently delicious & the margaritas are strong & the best I've ever had! The owner Ruperto & his staff are very friendly & always accomodating.

We often dine at Canyon Road. The service is typically good and the food consistently good and plentiful, special requests are never a problem. Love their guacamole and their chips are warm and delish! Refills on the chips is never a problem.
My one complaint from this past dining; I brought a group of six in and everyone enjoyed but you would think that the one cup of hot water w/lemon wouldn't be a charge ($3.25) when spending close to $300. It's just the principle so I will bring it up the next time we are there...
