We were seated promptly for our reservation. We were able to sit outside which was nice and quieter than inside. The service was good. The food was good. Overall a solid dining experience. We will be back again
Food was excellent and the service was five star! Highly recommend!
The food was good in general. Great guacamole and the Citrus shrimp were plentiful and tasty. The fish tacos were over battered, fried and came out cold. The biggest issue was that the drinks are absolutely watered down. When I complained to the manager, he brought over another watered down shot. Two shots and no effect of alcohol. This kind of dishonesty is a bad mark on what could be a decent place. Too bad.
My go to Mexican restaurant
I love the iron skillet tacos
Server on point. Knew his job, and did it well. Food was delicious and fresh, as it is every time we dine there.
Was disappointed with our experience this past weekend. We ordered the tableside guacamole which was tastless and the preparer dropped the avacado and also didnt scoop out all of the flesh. The main course was super salty and had more sauce on the plate than food for the actual entree. we were also there to celebrate a special birthday which was not acknowledge. For an expensive meal for two, I would have expected a better experience and better food. We will not be returning.
Well, apparently there was a "miscommunication" with our order in the kitchen.
Understand, I didn't complain or ask for compensation but still..
The manager/owner came over apologized profusely , bought us a round of drinks and desert.
That is how it should be done...look things happen, it wasn't really even that long a wait.
The fact that they apologized and comp us some items, without me even asking was the right thing to do.
Food was great, server was pleasant and helpful.
I'll be back!
Great food but the lighting is very low, this has always been an issue
As always great food and service. Love the sangria and apps. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.
Great food, great drinks, friendly service
Found this restaurant to be an excellent fit for a night out, food was excellent atmosphere was energetic lots of conversations going on. Definitely plan on going back
Restaurant was so loud you couldn’t hear yourself think. The food was mediocre.
Caracara - great dinner with friends
Celebrating Cinco de Mayo! Our first time here. We all loved the food and service. We highly recommend this Mexican restaurant and will return!! Ole. Ole.
Excellent Food. Great Service. Beautiful Dining Area. Love the Table Side Guacamole. Owners know what they are doing. Can't Wait to try out their new location in Northport when it opens. It will be closer to my house.
I have been going to Cara Cara for at least ten years and it is one of very few restaurants where the food is just as good, if not better, now than it was 10 years ago. Tableside guac is delicious, and don't miss those braised short ribs. Cara Cara is always packed and you will have to wait, but it is worth it.Truly one of the best restaurants on Long Island. If you go once, you'll go again, I promise.
The food here is great, its consistent and no matter what me and my wife order its always delicious.
My complaint is the noise level. There is no music playing, but its still the loudest restaurant I've ever been to. If your planning on going for a date, this is not the place. Me and my wife sat in the middle section (tables) and we couldn't hear each other at all, we consistently had to say "What?, huh?". I don't understand why its so loud.
Celebrating our anniversary and cinco de mayo, great food, great drinks, great service
When I try to describe CaraCara I run out of superlatives. Suffice it to say that this is the best restaurant on Long Island. I have never had anything less than Superb and the serving staff is the best I have encountered anywhere.
Cannot do any better. I visit this restaurant every time I am on Long Island on business. No matter when I visit or what I order the result is absolute perfection. This particular dinner started with outstanding tableside guacamole followed by my favorite entree pollo relleno. As always, service was awesome. Can’t wait to visit again.
Service: Very Friendly waiter
Food: Went with my family of 5. Everyone had something different and enjoyed it. Guacamole made at table side, very good. Mole very good. Something similar to a sweet potato mash - (Bonitio?) excellent, skirt steak very good. Nice kick to the jalepeno margarita.
Went to experience their restaurant week menu and we were't disappointed. Great meal, Great flavor. We were thoroughly satisfied.
Service was good, food was delicious. My only complaint was I was too full to finish it all!
Came in for brunch. There was a party going on there - which was fine and not distracting but the service was really slow because of it. They said the kitchen was backed up. However at least two tables that sat considerably later than us got their food before us. I ordered margaritas on the rocks and specified no particular tequila. I was charged $12 a margarita even though the menu said $9. Food was not that good. I love this place for dinner but it was not great for brunch. Won’t be back for brunch.
We love Cara Cara for dinner time. We decided to give it a try for brunch. We were very happy. I think instead of giving taco chips and salsa for the table at brunch. Maybe put mini churros on the table for brunch. But over all food was delicious.
The food was amazing as usual! Everytime we go we try a new dish. Always great service . Waiter was very helpful in helping decide and also a big plus that he warned us of any allergies in a certain dish !!! Always a good time when we go here.
Lively upscale place with authentic food. Don’t leave without trying the carnitas.
Guacamole was very good but everythibg else was just “okay”. I expected a better flavor especially with costs being a bit on the pricey side. Did not taste truly authentic.
Awesome drinks and food! Definitely going back soon!
The food we ordered was excellent as always and the service was excellent. The place is not cheap but worth the special occasion dinner once in a blue moon.
Went out on a date with my girlfriend this is a great place , definitely not a place for a first date cuz it’s loud but other wise the food is great and the service is great to , and on the plus side they make you fresh quac right in front of you and you get fresh chips also which are amazing.
Great food - we got the seafood ceviche special, guacamole, fish tacos, shrimp tacos, sweet plantains.. rice & beans were interesting (they both could have used more spices/flavor) & then flan for dessert - the only things I would change is more sauce for the plantains (bc it was so good) & to keep the flan traditional (it was peach flavored-not bad, but not great) also jalepeno margarita and the Mexican Hefeweizen drinks were great, we’d definitely go again for some authentic Mexican, next time want to try the tamales :)
Service was great and attentive as well (think his name was chris)
Absolutely delicious food! Fantastic service and beautiful ambiance!
The food is consistently great here! The waiters/waitresses here are very attentive and always make great recommendations if asked. The peach sangria is amazing definitely worth checking out if you are in the area.
Girls night out was a great success! Food and atmosphere was great. The one man band unfortunately put us to sleep.
Took my best friend here for her Birthday. The staff was knowledgeable with excellent recommendations. The food was amazing had fresh guacamole made tableside over all amazing definitely recommend.
It doesn’t get any better than CaraCara. This trip was superb shrimp ceviche and wonderful enchiladas suizas. As always the service was perfect.
Best restaurant on Long Island. Best table side guacamole on the planet. Also, just upgraded their already sensational chips and they are even better.
Great food, great service. Will return.
Always an enjoyable evening. Food is very good and staff most professional and informative.
