This is one of our go to’s. Squeezed a table of 5 into a table of 4 despite having a reservation. Drinks took an inordinate amount of time with a beer glass served with a 1.5 inch head. Food was cold, server was somewhat curt. Side came out well after meal and was ice cold. We love dos caminos but this was a sad bad experience. Will give it another try sometime

My husband and I frequent Dos Caminos fairly regularly. The wait and host staff know us and appreciate our generosity. When we stopped by for another Sunday brunch, there appeared to be plenty of outdoor seating available even though it was a beautiful day. We had noted on our reservation that we’d like a table outside.

When we checked in, we asked if our table was ready for us outside. The hostess informed us that if we wanted a good table that we had to join their club. In other words, even though we are loyal customers, we would have to pay a club fee to earn their loyalty. I had mentioned that we come all the time. She acknowledged recognizing us but if we weren’t part of the club we’ll have to wait.

We ended up eating inside. Ironically the first thing out of our server’s mouth was a solicitation to join their club. The pitch went on for 10 minutes before we could even order.

We enjoy the food and the staff. Too bad Dos Caminos has no appreciation for their loyal patrons unless they agree to join their stupid club.

Dos Caminos needs to focus on the food and the patrons and spare their diners the sales pitch.

I did not have a great experience. Our waiter was very nice but too busy to really take good care of us. The cocktails were good. The food was very salty. The worst part was the cleaniness. The bathroom was dirty and smelled. There was an old dirty broom with a duskpan sitting in the corner.

Great indoors OR outside in good weather! Outstanding service /mgt, creative yet familiar cuisine and very tasty bar choices! Perfect for a celebration or a date night. Try the jalapeño margarita for an icy, spicy spark! Wowie for dessert options too..😍

Not your typical Mexican menu. They have a nice variety of options, including multiple guacamole recipes. The service is good and the portions are generous. Noise level is a bit too high for conversation. It’s mainly the music playing. Could be a little lower to allow for conversation without raising your voice. Overall, though, a spot I’d recommend.

Fun venue for Sunday brunch w/larger group. Highly recommend their guacamole, Costillas con Maiz (braised pork ribs w/to-die-for corn pudding), Oaxacan Shrimp Quesadilla, & Mexican Key Lime Tart. Bottomless drink option w/selection of Bloody Mary’s, regular and their delicious signature Prickly Pear Margaritas (both frozen) and Mimosas? We’ll be back!

We always dined at the Times Sq. location. The Meatpacking location is just as good and much quieter. It's great to now there is consistent quality and great dishes between the two locations. A definite stop at the end of the High Line.

Food was great and found the serving sizes to be pretty large! Prices were also affordable considering the location. Overall experience was great however the AC was not working the day I went and it was very humid and uncomfortable inside, which made for only 3 stars.. would deff return though!

The server was confused, did not explain the menu accurately, and therefore got our order wrong. Jittery guy.

Overall Dos Caminos is excellent, the location in Meatpacking Area is fabulous. The food is phenomenal and are the drinks. I have ate at all the locations in NYC and have to say all are terrific. Go and check out this trendy restaurant.

We’ve eaten at this location many times before and it was always a great experience. This time, not so much. We sat outside.

The tap water was warm - really warm. Not one drop of condensation formed on our glasses. Everyone else around us seemed to have ice in their water. I thought it was simply an oversight until our water glasses were refilled - with warm water again

My prickly pear mule tastes like cranberry vodka backwash- it was horrible.

We waited over 25 minutes after receiving our guacamole/chips for the entrees to arrive. My husbands sizzling steak was great. My chicken tacos were cold....

Then we had to wait another agonizing 30 minutes to get our check. Service was extremely poor. Seemed like our waiter could only do one task at a time.

Hoping it was just an single poor experience. Would go back, but if the service is bad again, I’m done.

We went there on a Saturday.. the place looked nice I mean of course it's in the meatpacking and there was a lot of people out door sitting area looked packed. The food sucked we didn't enjoy anything that we ordered also overpriced but the drinks were okay! Don't plan on going back! You could have much better food at a simple Mexican restaurant in the neighborhood! Waste of money!

Great outdoor patio in the Meatpacking.
Unfortunately server was very nice but not particularly attentive. Lovely night so great to hang outdoors but if I was in a rush it would have been problematic.

We were a large group. Service was a bit spotty however the staff was very pleasant, helpful, and patient, which made up for it. Would suggest this location for large personal group destination outings. If you’d like to sit and enjoy each other’s company, this is the place. The Park Ave location is better for professional and/or quick outings. The Pros we were not rushed. The Cons they were not rushed either, things came out rather slow. The food portions are a bit small for the pricing. The portions have reduced in size over the years. For example the large guac is essentially the same amount a small guac would be at a family Mexican restaurant. However, it’s offered in a large shallow (ridiculously heavy) bowl. The guac is great in quality however it’s not a great sharing experience. The only food complaint was from one guest regarding the fish tacos. I tried a bit. They were terrible. Everyone else greatly enjoyed their food selections. The selections ranged from Sizzling fajitas, free range chicken, quesadillas, empanadas to skirt steak. The sangria pitchers were watered down. Way too much ice, which heavily altered the taste. Sad because it’s cheap quality wine to begin with, seems unnecessary to skimp in that area. More Pros than cons, therefore likely to return.

I always love going here for brunch and the service and food was great, but the air conditioning was NOT working on pretty much the hottest day of the year! It was almost unbearable.. everyone, even some employees , were fanning themselves with menus.. The usually delicious margaritas were even wilted. We should have been told before, not fair to the guests OR the employees...We got an apology after ( since I’m a member of the restaurant club), but seriously???

My wife and I came here for brunch on a Saturday afternoon. I made reservations via OpenTable. We were seated right away in their upstairs dining room. I started with the beer and margaritas. I really enjoyed it!

We got guac and chips and salsa to start for the table and the guac was super fresh and delicious!

Service was a bit slow but they were very busy that day. Our waiter was great about it. Overall, we had a great time here and love the food! I would definitely go back!

I went last night for dinner with my friend to celebrate my 28th birthday . I sat at a table outside since the weather was beautiful. My server was so nice & he made my experience special. Unfortunately he didn't completely win my friend over, but I understand it was busy. I waited for my friend at the table for 1 hr & 30min. I was surprised the hosts sat me as an incomplete party but they were nice. They need better communication from the servers but it happens in every restaurant.
The tacos were amazing and the chips & salsa trio was great.
At the end, the server put candles on our dessert. It was a nice surprise everyone sang happy birthday to me. Overall I had a good time. I will be dining again soon.
