The server was attentive and helpful. The downstairs dining space was moderately loud. The food was below average. The guacamole was tasteless. It lacked salt and other seasoning. The empanadas were flavorful but drowned in some sort of spicy mayo. I’ve had better from a box and microwaved. My chili relleno could have been eggplant parmigiana. It sat in 1/2 inch of marinara sauce and was covered in melted cheese. The best part of the meal was my Pacifico beer. It is a sad day when Dos Caminos has become a glorified Taco Bell.

Do not go here on a Friday expecting good food or service you will get better quality "Mexican" from Taco Bell. There are better choices in the city, save yourself the hassle.

For New York, the prices are about typical - on the high side but not exorbitant. Guacamole is fresh and tasty and main courses are interesting. Very large spacious restaurant which is a nice rarity in midtown.

Has really gone downhill...terrible services. It took 30 minutes to get our first drink order and they never came back to take another drink order the entire 2 hours we were there. Absolutely horrible experience. And the bathroom was flooded.

Didn’t have sparking water. Didn’t have grenadine to make a Shirley temple. Didn’t have one of the entrees. Service was mediocre. Entire wait staff seemed more interested in the manager or some other employee who was dining by himself at the table next to us and playing a Nintendo switch. Food was mediocre at best. Big drop in what it used to be - Feels like it could’ve been a Mexican place in a mall (and it was New Year’s Eve!)

Went into NYC to see the tree at Rockefeller Center and was looking for a place to eat out with the kids. Times Square was packed so I remembered Dos Caminos on 3rd Ave. Used to go frequently when I worked in NYC. It didn't disappoint. Best guacamole around. My kids said it was the best they ever had. Our meals were also very good. Good portions and reasonable prices for midtown Manhattan. The atmosphere was also good and the wait staff was terrific. I highly recommend this place.

We ordered steak fajitas and I ordered medium rare, only 1 piece cake that way, and my friend ordered well done and she had a mixture of rare and well done. They didn’t offer to redo, wouldn’t go back.

Food was just Ok. Fajita was too oily and the smoky flavor was too strong. Mixed up with our orders so some got their dishes while other had to wait. Overall nice but in my opinion too pricy for common dishes.

We had a wonderful experience at Dos Caminos today. We made 2 reservations of 7 online for our party of 14 and the host was so nice to accommodate our party at the same table once we arrived! The service was great. The guacamole and red sangria were delicious!!

The restaurant has been around for a long time, and in Manhattan that is saying something... but the Mexican food was overpriced and rather uninspired. I’ve heard mixed reviews about the place, some people love it, but I’ll pass on returning. There are so many other great places in midtown to try.

So this is a difficult review. We were here for brunch as we had been to other locations for brunch in the past. We all upgraded to the bottomless brunch drinks we figured with a 2 hour limit we would be fine. Our drinks took FOREVER to get to us so we ended up asking if we could order two at a time. I'm not saying we were lushes that ordered 6 drinks but I was long done with my first mimosa and it was nearly an hour to get my next one. Food was great, guacamole is delicious and our server was very sweet and apologetic. My suggestion is that they don't offer the bottomless. For $18 upgrade and the long time it takes to get them, it's just not worth it.

The chopped salad is one of my favorites and I've had it several times. I love a thoroughly dressed salad, but this was far beyond that, to the extent that it was drenched and practically soggy.
The guacamole was some of the best I've had in a while though.
