Delicious food. It was also fun food. Who doesn’t like guacamole and chips. Don’t miss their pear tartlet. So yummy.

They ran out of a dish by the time I got to brunch (2:30pm). I was so disappointed! But the 2 hour bottomless drinks made up for it!!!!

My old school friends decided to get-together before the holiday rush and a a place that was "centrally" located so I chose El Paso. It did not disappoint. Its right off the 6 train so perfect for all of us. The red sangria there is terrible but everything else was delicious. The ambiance was very pretty and the music playing in the background was light enough so that the table across from us couldn't hear our conversation but not too loud where we couldn't hear ourselves.

With great company and good food and drinks....how could we go wrong. Overall, we had a great time.

Perfect mixed drinks. We've enjoyed
margaritas these are right out of
a pair if wise bar hands. Our son
joined and we had chicken mole,
seafood cocktail, a handful of good
drinks, chips and red dip.

The menu on line is not the same as in the restaurant. They added 20% tip (and we paid) but the service was poor and slow. The restaurant was half empty.

My colleagues and I went for lunch after a session at the Museum of the city of New York. I had made a reservation but there was plenty of room - cocktails and guacamole were offered and arrived promptly, service was quick, cocktails and liquor selection was good, food satisfied everyone.

I ordered press juice with ginger, carrot and Kale without the Apple. Juice has no ginger taste but has a sour taste.

This place was really good. We don't eat up here a lot so we were flying blind, but the tacos were awesome and the Vuelve a la vida was flavor-packed without being too salty. The oysters were pretty good, but I was just happy to see them on the menu, and they weren't overpriced. The wine was so-so. I'd come back.

One of the best Mexican restaurants we've dined at in NYC. Worth the effort to get there if you don't life in East Harlem or on the east side. The food is delicious. Great cocktails (and selection). Decor with artifacts and design from Mexico and not the cheesy beverage company sponsored decor. Great outdoor patio if you are there for warm weather. Can be noisy sitting next to groups.

neighborhood a bit edgy.. but that can be anywhere in any city. the food is worth the displacement.. especially the guacamole.

Great little restaurant. Service was friendly, prompt. Great food selection-not typical of what you see in many NYC based Mexican restaurants. Very good value. Good range of cocktail choices and decent array of draught beer selections.
