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.
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.
Large group, so it was a tight table. Waited a bit for the reservation - but happily grabbed drinks at the bar. Food was decent. One meal was inedible, but was returned and replaced at no charge. Very happy and will be back.
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.
