If just okay was a restaurant this would be it, nothing was out of this world, service was horrible but they were busy. I asked them to sing happy birthday for my mom they came out said happy birthday and thats it like if you guys don't do sing then let me know it was so insanely awkward. The food was so expensive and no worth it at all the food was so bland and im not picky, the reviews were great so I was excited but it was 100% not worth it, never coming back
Best restaurant on Long Island. Had fantastic tortilla soup followed by perfectly prepared pollo relleno. As always the service was the best anywhere.
Awesome as always. Carne asada was spectacular. Service was perfect and adjustments made for COVID were superb.
Always delicious , never disappoints . Food is amazing .
Short-ribs were perfect! Service was fast! Will definitely go back.
Food very good as usual and service was real good. One negative was noticed a good amount of bugs on wall and some around table. Prob fruit flies due to avacados for guacamole, which is delicious. It was a little upsetting but will give a pass due to all that’s gone on in the world
Favorite Mexican spot, always delicious and service is always on point!!
We've been here many times before, and will return many times again. Never a bad dining experience at Caracara. And the Mango Frozen Margarita is a dream come true! I order the Tacos de Pescada (Fish Tacos) whenever I go there. AND the tableside Guacamole is amazing. Not the place to dine at if you're on a budget. Frozen Margs are $14 each (but worth every penny).
Food and drinks were 100% service was 110%. Amazing evening
Pricing was super fair, food was good service was great. Recommend this place for a date or even if you want to take your family. It fits for all.
This was my second time dining here and we thoroughly enjoyed it! My sister and I are very picky...we’re big “foodies” so for us to both agree that this restaurant is great says a lot! The food is delicious the service was great I really have no complaints the drinks were also really good! I love the mexican music to set the ambience as well! I recommend the margaritas and shrimp tamale appetizer! YUM
Awesome!!! Will def be back! We were a party of six and the waitress was amazing!! Peach sangria even better!!
Went for my wife’s birthday the food and service were both excellent
Best restaurant on Long Island! Awesome tortilla soup! Superb paella! Perfect service! It doesn’t get any better than CaraCara.
This place is the best! That’s why I booked a table 3 nights in a row. Tonight the carne asada was spectacular. As always the service was perfect.
Outstanding experience! Rob our server was friendly and knowledgeable.
Food was amazing! Will be heading there again and again.
Best table side guacamole on the planet! Superb pollo relleno. Perfect service! Can’t do any better.
Best empanadas hands-down still thinking about them!
Can’t wait till next time!
Very specific food choices but it was very good
Came here labor day pretty empty for slow inattentive service . Food was pretty bad . salsa was in a tiny butter size round cup. Ordered shrimp tacos .. huge disappointment .. tiny frozen little shrimp zero flavor loaded with disgusting lump of mayo like sauce. Taco shells were tiny .. Zero flavor to the dish .. plus shrimp were cold .. I cld not even finish my meal it was so bad. ordered the Cadillac margarita It was horrible tasted lk pure gasoline no margarita taste ..My husbands shprt ribs only ok .. def not worth the price ... Decor is drab and depressing will not be back
The food is outstanding! We will be back. Thanks for the great service.
Good casual Mexican food. Fresh chips and guacamole were very good.
The food was alright. Not the best Mexican food ever but not the worst. Waiter was super polite.
Delicious, attentive waiter (James), I can’t wait to go back ... by far our favorite restaurant on Main St
Searched for Mexican Fine Dining and found CaraCara on the list. Food was good, but this is not Fine dining. I compare everything to Besito in Roslyn, and compared to that this restaurant is average. Small, nice decor but I didn't consider it fine dining.
Ordered my usual, shrimp - tropical. They must changed recipe cause it didnt taste like it use to. The sauce tasted like the pork and bean out if the can. Very disappointed. Normally they get 5 stars from me not this time.
I love this place!!! Excellent food and great service. Reasonable prices for such quality food. The waitstaff is so accommodating. Can’t wait to go back!!
all great...last night out for a while..great to spend it there
Both food and service were terrific.
Always excellent. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable, the cocktails are AMAZING and the food is spectacular.
Great time. Great food. Great drinks. Great waiter (Rob). Will be going back soon.
Food was excellent, service was good but the server forgot our coffees. When we reminded her she only brought one. Not a big deal, she didn’t charge for them. It does get very loud once it gets crowded. Best to go early if you want a quiet atmosphere.
The waiter was the best part of our experience. He was very courteous and accommodated.
When you want good Mexican food, you can't go wrong at Caracara. Food is always fresh, staff is very friendly, its a HAPPY place. Very lively. Would definitely recommend going to Caracara.
The menu was not your typical Mexican restaurant fare (no sizzling fajitas!), but the choices were excellent and the service was just as good. All the food was nicely prepared and very fresh. The décor was also very pleasing. I highly recommend!
The food is just average, and in order to hold a conversation with the people that are with you; you must scream as the acoustics are awful. It is good for going to the bar only.
My friend and I had a great dining experience. The food was delicious and the service was great!
My dish of shrimp was very good. My husband had planca chicken. Their version of fajitas. It was okay, lacked seasoning and lump of cheese was on bottom
It was noisy and loud and the table next to us was extra loud noone used their inside voice so it was difficult to enjoy a night out. The guacamole was lumpy and not spicy. Everything else was okay.
Excellent food served in a pretty setting. Waitstaff was terrific, so friendly and accommodating. Can’t wait to go back.
