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.
Great food just a little pricey
Always great service and delicious food here. Costs are reasonable as well. One of my favorites!
Food very bland. The $22 guacamole was horrible. No flavor. Sangria was lacking wine. This is definitely off my list
Tables are close together. Can accommodate gluten free
As always, the drinks were on point and the food was delicious.
first time here and will absolutely be back. the food is incredibly good. fresh guacamole is some of the best I ever had. the steaks were awesome, seafood was great. service and drinks
were all excellent
top notch spanish/mexican food - a cut way above the rest - you have to try it.
Nice place to grab drinks. The food could be better.
The restaurant was delicious and we were seated right away. We were given recommendations by our waiter and told all of the specials. We were given time to relax and eat and were not rushed.
The food and our waiter Jimmy was outstanding! I would always ask for him to be our waiter again. Very knowledgeable of all the menu items and patient with us.
food a bit bland but beautifully presented, Great service and atmosphere.
not for a foodie,,but it is a lively scene and the service was great
Great service. Love ittttt.
Consistently good food and service
Exellent food, great selection. More dessert options needed
The food was amazing as always
Great food and service!!!!
I’ve been to CaraCara several times and this my least favorite experience.
The food was just so so.
Service was okay...nothing special
Very disappointed with my meal....the guacamole was very salty..
Very nice restaurant for great Mexican food. Would return!
Food was ok, tasty! The egg brunch was not the best I’ve had nor the best thing on the menu. I prefer the apps like chicken rollitos or mole. The guac was overpriced at $22 but good and fun served table side. The fried ice cream was the worst I’ve ever had to be honest. Drinks and service were very good. Sangria was delicious !! Atmosphere is very nice and cozy! Overall bill was fairly priced for a Sunday brunch date.
Only problem was it was extremely overcrowded. There were extra tables added everywhere and there was literally no room to move because of that. The servers were having a difficult time getting to the tables they were attending, and were frequently getting bumped and spilling things. But under the circumstances, the staff was handling it like pros, they had their smiles and were doing everything to make it right.
third time at this restaurant. my wife and i had the empanadas and ceviche as appetizers. both were excellent. we both ordered the carne asada for entree. was also delicious. have enjoyed this restaurant. only downside is its very small. when you are 2 people you get a small table and privacy is diminished as the table for 2 next to us is basically right next to you almost as if you're together. won't stop me from going back.
If you're looking for good Mexican food that isn't buried under a ton of sauce and refried beans and looking for something more authentic, then you got to try Caracara. The food is just so good as are the margaritas.
Try the guacamole, flautas and the short ribs.
My overall experience was a four. I would have given it a five. However, the seating arrangement is very tight. If your wearing a heavy winter coat you have to fold it under you and sit on it. When the servers are making the guacamole at the table or others they occasionally run up along your chair with the cart. Great food just need to reorganize the seating
Thanks for having great food. It is always consistent. Service was below average this time? This had never happened before, but the food and ambiance made up for it.? Will be back soon.
