I'm in love with Crema. It's the best restaurant to have brunch in NYC. The guacamole is the most delicious guacamole I've tried in the city. The chilaquiles are delicious. However, the waitress wasn't polite at all on our last visit. But overall the food was amazing and the staff was nice as always, except for this waitress. Too bad they're gonna close.

Refined and flavorful expression of Mexican food. The French influence creates some unique aspects.

Came for brunch on a Saturday afternoon. It was surprisingly not too crowded. I had the unlimited mimosas that, unfortunately, was limited to only one hour but the server was good about refills. I had the torrejas which is french toast with bacon and eggs - delicious.

Great restaurant! The chilaquiles at brunch are the best I've had. Sad to know that Crema is closing, though.

On a weekend trip to NYC, my husband and I ate dinner here on Friday night. They have margaritas made with fresh muddled fruit. I tried the blackberry and watermelon. Both were delicious! I would have liked to try more flavors, but they are kind of strong! We had guacamole and salsas. The guacamole was smooth with a nice citrus flavor. You get two salsas, one mild, one very spicy. It is not the normal salsa everyone else serves. It was delicious! I ordered the scallops for dinner. Very delicious with corn cakes and really good sauces. My husband ordered steak tacos and was very pleased. The meat had a nice flavor and was cooked to his liking. As usual as Mexican restaurants, we ate too many chips, so no room for dessert. We would highly recommend this restaurant! The service was terrific and food delicious.

I've been coming to Crema for years, and for years it has never disappointed! The staff is super pleasant, knowledgeable, and a joy to be around. Oh, and get the French toast during brunch - it's life changing.

We stumbled across Crema when we were at the Affordable Art Show and were pleasantly surprised by the food. I love Mexican, but avoid it because it can be heavy with lots of cheese, etc. Well, if you feel the same way, Crema can solve that problem. Crema has light, inventive Mexican dishes. My husband and I had the scallops which were delicious! Also, he started with mini steak tacos- also yummy! I would definitely go back!

We made a reservation for brunch at 11:30 right when they opened but they didn't get that busy. I had the stuffed poblano which was really good. The food was ready pretty quickly and the presentation was gourmet.

The bottomless mimosas were the star of the game, my glass was empty once in an hour and a half so our waiter did a great job living up to the bottomless part of the deal.
