I always enjoy Dos Caminos for the options and ambiance. The food was overall good this time except that the quesadilla my niece ordered was very greasy on the bottom. It left her hands a mess and she didn't even finish it.

We waited almost an hour for food that came out cold and unappetizing anyway. Not to mention we received our check 40 minutes before the food.

The food was okay, and the service took forever. It took the waitress 20 minutes to come back with our drink order. And I actually had to get up and ask for the check from the hostess because the waitress was no where to be found.

I never understand why they don't get better reviews. I always have a great time and the food is inventive and delicious. The make the best margaritas hands down. Fresh ingredients. The staff is always pleasant, the music is not too loud. The decor is lovely as well. It is pricey for Mexican food but it is worth it.

Food was not worth the price. The vegetarian tacos were too spicy to eat. I chocked on the amount of citrus on the naked chicken tacos. A subpar meal on a special occasion.

After dining at this locations on several occasions I thought it would be a great idea to have dinner her with my sister whose birthday it was and who travelled from out of town. Her good friend joined us. Our reservation was confirmed for 4:00. Additionally I confirmed with the host that I wanted a dessert and candle and an accepella version of happy birthday sang by the waiters. Our waiter Zack was horrible. He was extremely slow and kept forgetting the silverware. When we ordered drinks it was at least 15 minutes before we received them. At one instance he said “I can’t help it...I’m waiting on 7 tables.” After we finished the meal I spoke with the hostess and requested the desert and birthday song. I cancelled this request after waiting approximately 25 minutes. We spoke with the manager who was a 24 year old young lady without a CLUE as to satisfy a complaint from customers. She was really laughable. We left the restaurant and went to Hillstone. My sister’s birthday celebration was FANTASTIC at this point. I will NEVER dine at this location again.

My sister was visiting from out of town and I wanted to find a nice place to have dinner. I came across Dos Caminos after hearing really good reviews about it. I’m glad I did because everything was perfect! We went on a Monday so there wasn’t a long wait, the vibe was very relaxing, the food and drink was amazing and the staff was very friendly. It can be a little pricey but it’s worth the quality. I’ll definitely be visiting again soon.

Good food, service was good but would have liked a bit more attention from server. We were seated outdoors on a hot day and he never came back to see if we wanted drink refills after we received our food.

I will not be returning to Dis Caminos, as this was one of the worst dining experiences I’ve had in a very long time. The food was extremely salty and the meat quality seemed to have declined since I last dined at the restaurant a few months ago. The service was subpar. Our waitress barely returned to our table and the bus boy ignored our request for a knife. The manager did take care of us but the overall experience was terrible.

My friend and I found Camino on Open Table in our neighborhood in Midtown East during a recent vacation. The place was packed and lively. Food was excellent. GREAT Guacamole and Salsas. Waiter did a great job in a very crowded room. I would go here to Propose Marriage, but pretty much anything else (except perhaps Grandma's birthday) is fair game.

When we arrived, my friend took a hard fall down the steps leading to the dining room downstairs. No one in our party had been drinking at all that day. She lost balance on the steps due to one of the steps being slippery. You could tell that the traction on the steps wasn't the best and very worn down. The two hosts at the stand very clearly saw the incident and awkwardly stood behind the stand not acknowledging us immediately when we walked up. They did not ask if my friend was fine, nor did they apologize for the fall. Instead they made us wait to check in while they spoke among one another. One of the hosts took a flashlight and "inspected" the stairs while we were standing there waiting for the other host to gather our menus. It was an extremely uncomfortable experience and very disappointing. Not to mention my friend could have been seriously hurt. It also took a significant amount of time for our waiter to take our drink order after we sat down. There were several open tables so it wasn't completely busy. I've been to multiple Dos Caminos locations around the city and this one by far is the most disappointing. Just watch your step on the stairs.

We tried all the ceviche offerings and loved them all. The margaritas are creative and the bartender is generous with the alcohol content, but the price seems really high ($15-18 per glass). We don't live in NYC so maybe this is the going rate now.

Food was very good. Great guacamole as an appetizer. Nice light vegetables also as a starter. Main meal was good -- a salad with fish. Service was accommodating.
The restaurant was loud and we were surrounded by two babies on a weekday lunch. We were intent on business. They were pretty excited to see each other and would not stop screaming.
It worked in the end.

Very good tasting guacamole, however over priced for what they call a "large" order. The fish tacos and salads were rather bland - nothing to write home about. The house special steak dish was decent. Decent size portions (other than the guac for the price). Would go back only for drinks and guac at the bar.

We had a large group and a couple of unexpected extras. As usual, they were very accommodating, finding us a bigger table despite being quite full and without complaint.
They did seem to be a bit understaffed, resulting in a very long wait for drinks, but otherwise all was great.

Service was poor throughout dinner. The waiter was most attentive when he was trying to get us to buy into some club card and save $3. Also, by 7:45pm, the frozen margarita machine was not working right. The margaritas were pure liquid and they thought that was acceptable to serve. I never heard a waiter sing Happy Birthday in a whisper in under 5 seconds.

We had great hopes for Dos Caminos having seen a Michael Colemeco segment a while back. But noise level was way too much to allow conversation. The usual annoying nonsensical heavy base beat repetitive "music". Maybe that increases bar sales: drink more to help the headache.

Service was bad. Took 30 minutes to get a drink. Food was disappointing. Skit steak tacos somehow involved some sugar.
