We were there for my daughters 21st Birthday. There were 11 of us. Service was very good. Food was terrific. Really enjoyed it.
Over all we had a very pleasant experience however we all felt that in some aspects, it was lacking. We all assumed that salsa would come with the pre-appetizer chips however this was not the case. We all felt considering other mexican/latin restaurants that it is customary to provide dipping sauces or a plain salsa. I inquired about queso blanco for the chips but the waiter informed me that there was none however when the appetizer nachos came to the table, they were covered with queso blanco. Other items that fell short were the plantains, no one at the table cared for them. The tortilla soup was "strange" in that we expected something else, instead it was more of a puree poured onto pile of ingredients in the bowl. I felt that the chef may not have been feeling good that evening as food lacked the gusto we felt it had when we had our first dinner at this establishment.
delicious food and service. High quality
Guacamole was delicious! Tamales great! Drinks good! Service terrific!
The guacamole was OUT OF THIS WORLD. Great service and fun atmosphere.
It was okay. Appetizers were wonderful. Food was average on the dry and bland side. Drinks were fine.
Food was fair. Dinner for 4 with a bowl of Guacamole was $115. In my opinion too pricey for soft tacos and guacamole. I won't be back,
Food & service was great
Best restaurant on Long Island! I never miss a chance to visit CaraCara when i’m In the area! This evening the ceviche was superb as was the paella. Best service you can find anywhere.
THE BEST TABLESIDE GUACAMOLE ON THE PLANET! Everything they do at CaraCara is awesome but especially the guacamole. Also, the serving staff is absolutely top notch.
The food was okay but there were so many flies. We were constantly swatting the flies away and could not enjoy our meals.
The service was amazing! We all enjoyed our meals. However the place is currently having an issue with fruit flies.We spent most of the night swatting them away. The manger sent desert over even though we said we did not want it. We dine there often via Opentable reservations, at the bar and walk in. We were disappointed in the pumpkin beer as well. We left very disappointed in this evenings experience.
Great food and service!
We had a large group for Saturday brunch. The food was good and service was great.
The food was amazing, although the rice and beans was not a favorite. I wish the music was louder so you can not hear the other customers conversations. service was amazing.
Very good service, all our entries and drinks were very good. It was little noisy, but got quieter later. They didn’t rush us to leave after we were done, one thing I appreciate the most.
It was great food was great as well as the drinks!
Solid food and service as always.
Twice the service help picked napkins directly off the floor and placed them on folks and plates.
They do not clean the table. Bean, rice chips and mics food for messy Mexican food dishes dope on to the table while we eat. The waitress and bus boy egnored it even with we ask to clean the table. (They removed our water glass which we were still using). When desert was brought to the table it was placed directly into the beans and chips. The plate was not even level do to the food it was on. When we move it the food was truly unpleasant. If the was a standard inexpensive Mexican restaurant we would have cleaned it ourselves, but this is reportly an "upscale" Mexican restaurant and the lake of training and professionalism makes our return unlikely.
As always great service. Great food. Great atmosphere. Our waiter James was wonderful. The side table guacamole delicious!! The iron skillet carnitas!!! My new favorite! Thanks for the recommendation James!
The food and service were abysmal
We brought out of town quests with us... they were most impressed with the ambiance, the menu uniqueness, the quality of the food! Another win win for CaraCara.
We brought our niece from Greece ! What a great time
Food was fabulous, she even forgot her sweater Peter brought the sweater all the way to garden city !
What a great guy what a great restaurant 😊
We have been to Caracara Grill twice and loved it both times. It has fast become our go to for upscale Mexican. Highly recommend.
First time there, definitely will be back again. Nothing fancy but a solid neighborhood restaurant that delivers on what counts, good food and service.
The service was great. The drinks and food were great
Cara Cara is never a disappointment. The staff is friendly, attentive and aims to please! The food is always delicious and the portions are good sized. One of our favorites!
Great fun evening! We all loved our meal and drinks! Service was great too! We’ll be back soon!
Wonderful restaurant. Definitely get the guacamole made at the table. Very tasty
Consistently good food. Loved our dinner.
It was great to see Tony and Peter, the proprietors of Caracara, again. This restaurant continues to be a great place for excellent food and service. The flavors of the food are fabulous. Their frozen margaritas are the best!
Caracara is definitely a place to go if you are in the mood for a great meal.
If you like Besitos in Huntington or Roslyn, you will really like it here. The manager is from there and he has taken the best of their menu items and tastes with him. Get their Natural Margaritas. They are not too sweet and delicious...with salt, of course. Their Tamales are excellent. I wasn't as taken with their enchiladas. The sauce was very tomato-ey and bland. They have the best table-side fresh-made guacamole, period (and I have had that at Rosa Mexicano. It is better here.) Unlimited rice & beans with your orders. Chips and salsa, too. The noise level is fairly loud, but this is not a romantic dining experience, it's a vibrant Mexican restaurant...what you expect. Overall, a good fun night out with friends or with your partner.
Really enjoyed this place! Homemade guacamole made tableside was really nice! All our dishes were very good! Will return!
The service was attentive and the atmosphere relaxing. I especially liked the sizzling tacos because the cheese melted on to the skillet. Maragaritas were tasty but small for the money. I would definitely try this restaurant again!
Love everything about Caracara! The food, the service and the location.
What a wonderful experience at Caracara. The service was awesome and the food amazing. This was our first time and we will be back. Red Sangria was delicious. I don't have anything negative to say!
Frequently visit this awesome establishment, however, tried the tortilla soup for the first time and it was super! The carne asada was perfect as always and the service was impeccable. Can’t ask for anything more.
Not what we exprvted
The best restaurant on Long Island comes through as usual. After several weeks away from the area due to other travel I couldn’t wait to visit CaraCara. As always the shrimp ceviche was spectacular and my favorite Pollo Relleno was perfect. The service at CaraCara is always spot on and this was no exception. I anxiously look forward to my next visit.
Excellent as usual.
