Upon walking in the front door there was an odor of some type of cleaning product. The hostess stand is past the bar, so it is awkward to find if you have never been there before.
Servers were young and inexperienced and not too friendly.
Food was fair-ordered the nachos as an appetizer-extremely salty. Would definitely not return.
A few of us decided to eat before seeing a movie. The guacamole made at the table was outstanding, as usual. We all had some form of soft tacos- fish, chicken, pork. Great. Plus it was Happy Hour so a pitcher of sangria was half price. Wonderful place!
Expensive for portions ..food was not hot...quac was good
Fantastic! As always! Superb ceviche and excellent carne tampequena. Perfect service and the best chips on the planet!!! Can’t wait until my next visit.
Food was bland... got the fish tacos. Waiter was great.
Never less than spectacular! My favorite restaurant on Long Island! Sensational ceviche! Great chicken fajitas! Perfect service. The BEST!
If you love Mexican food, you will love the food here. Service was also excellent. The guacamole was superb. Made at your table
Service, food was outstanding got a table at the time I needed was seated quick everything A+++
Great food and service. We’ll be back!
Great authentic food and drinks!
This place USED to be good but they raised their prices tremendously. The food is good but not worth the amount of money they’re now charging. We sat for a good 15 minutes before anyone even took our drink order. It seemed like the wait staff was very unorganized. I don’t think I’ll be dining here again.
Tableside Gauc delicious. Service very attentive. Chicken tacos good. Great place to meet up with friends
Local restaurant that does top notch Mexican. Tasty speciality drinks. Guacamole made to order at the table. Wait staff is friendly and fast.
I had the branzino special which was superb. My guests enjoyed their selections as well. We all enjoyed the peach sangria which was particularly refreshing on a hot August evening. The food was so good and filling that there was no room for dessert!
Spent my birthday celebration with my family and enjoyed the kind service, food, and overall atmosphere. It was a weeknight so quieter than our previous weekend visit when we were served at a table in the bar area. Mine and everyone's food was delicious including the table-side guacamole prepared by our server. Water refill did require the attention of our server even though our glasses were visibly empty. Pleasantly surprised with a sombrero on my head and birthday song when our churros with a candle came to the table.
Last, I've supported the strawless movement for many years and I'm usually clear to the server that I don't want a straw in the glass. However, looking around the restaurant before ordering my beverage it appeared straws were intended more with children's cups so I did not make the request for our drinks to be strawless. Unfortunately our sangria glasses arrived with straws in. I will continue to be clear with my request for a strawless in the future.
Both the food and the service were great at Caracara. I recommend the tableside guacamole, it was delicious!
Caracara is my favorite Mexican restaurant. I dine here often and bring lots of friends. My favorite dishes are the iron skillet tacos and the camarones tropicale.
This is the best restaurant on Long Island. I am a frequent diner at CaraCara and they NEVER disappoint. This particular evening the town was packed because of a street fair. As one would expect CaraCara was extremely busy as well. Despite that everything was superb and the service was perfect. Can’t wait for my next visit.
Always excellent! My favorite restaurant on Long Island. The best serving staff anywhere. Every time I am in the area I make sure I visit as many times as possible.
The food is amazing. If you're looking for Mexican flared food with an upscale vibe (but reasonable prices) this is the place to go!
Nice ambiance, friendly wait service and all around good food. The table side guacamole prep is pretty neat.
This restaurant is consistently good, great service and good food. We always return when we feel the need to eat Mexican food, it is the best!
Food was very bland and lacked flavor. Tableside guacamole was the only good thing about oue night. Very disappointing and will never go back !
Love caracara. The food, drinks, and atmosphere is amazing.
Dead on a Monday night. Food was good but not spectacular. Good, but not great.
Everything was AMAZING as always!
Overall service was bad. Steak was over cooked. Not impressed.
Overall a great restaurant. Love the guacamole appetizer!!!
Delicious every time
Amazing as always!
CaraCara never disappoints me. It is the best restaurant on Long Island. I never fail to visit when I am in the area on business. This visit was highlighted by absolutely sensational tableside guacamole. As always, the service was perfect. My only complaint about CaraCara is that it isn’t closer to my home so I could dine there more often.
Caracara is my favorite place to go for any special occasion. I’m never disappointed by the food or the service. The Peach Sangria is also my favorite drink to have.
Best restaurant on Long Island! Best most creative menu! Most attentive staff. Love every visit there.
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.
