Margaritas were great. Food was fresh and good. A tad pricey, but considering everything along with the atmosphere, worth it.
Being from TX I was disappointed in this place. I trusted Google review of it being a 4.5 and it definitely was nowhere near that.
Excellent food, so deliciously tasty!!!
A little pet peeve of mine, the restroom was what can I say . . .
Mediocre overpriced food. Service was the only thing that was decent. Frozen Margarita’s not very good and they overcharged my group of five. Bill was $480 which was crazy to begin with with happy hour included. They charged us 3x over the bill on each credit card. Which was insane. Over 30 years of experience they claim and you don’t know how to spit a bill? Never will go back.
Good food. Lots of vegetarians options! The waitress could be friendlier.
We were a large group that each had 1 drink, we shared quacamole and chips and each got one main course and it was $58 per person with tip. With entrees averaging ~$20 (most of us had combinations), that means 1 drink and shared app was ~$30 per person extra? Pricy. That said, the meal and drinks were good.
What a lovely surprise! We were looking for a reasonable place to eat near Ars Nova and were so happy to discover this delicious gem. The service and food were superb! The cheese chili rellenos were awesome.
Great section of flavored Margaritas; the guacamole & salsa and chips were fresh and delicious. the
Beef flautas were had great flavor. The the enchilada and the chimichanga were generous portion size and the tres leches is a must try. The service was excellent. The staff was attentive as well as the owner. Would definitely be back. Thank you!
Delicious food and wonderful service! I’ll be back and will recommend to others. We had a party of 8 and had a terrific experience!
Very friendly and pleasant place.. great food.. will be back soon.
We booked a table for 3 atn7:30 pm using Opentable on a Friday night and waited 49 min before leaving. Host told us that last weekend another group had to wait 1 hour. Host was not good at managing expectations or providing legitimate reservation times. Did not have chance to try the food.
The staff was extremely outgoing. Our party of 7 fully enjoyed the dining experience as both the food and the service was great. When we return to NYC we will definitely go back!
This is one of my favorite places. The food is excellent and the owners and staff are very friendly. A nice place to have a margarita and a meal.
We randomly found this spot online and loved the food and service! The owner was friendly and made us grilled jalapeños on request! The drinks were great and strong! Overall a great place to eat!!
The food was amazing!!! Great prices too. Staff was very friendly and attentive.
Tight quarters but good food. Staff was friendly and accommodating.
They were understaffed and our bill was close to $300 with guac as an appetizer and 4 entrees. My friend’s taco salad with steak was $30 dollars. It came out and had a garnish of field greens with a small portion of steak. I’ve had side salads that are bigger. We had to get her another meal at our next stop.
Guacamole was quite average or below average for a mexican restaurant. Inwould rate food as slightly above average
Awesome food and great staff. I will definitely be back!!
Wow! I read the great reviews and that's how I selected the restaurant but I really did not think it could be as outstanding as it was. When we first walked in, I admit that I was disappointed by the basic decor but the service and the food was better than any Mexican food that I have ever had before. Not kidding-it was fantastic! My friends agreed and we will return. A special note about the host: He was so welcoming and delightful.
We absolutely love this restaurant. This was our third time there! Everything is extremely fresh and savory!
The food was great. The variety of margarita’s was mind-blowing. And everything tasted wonderful. The owner was also very charming. I had a great night out with my friends!
Amazing food, amazing service! We highly recommend it! For food, we had the tacos al carbon, chicken chipotle soup, and beef tacos, and it was all amazing! For drinks, we went with margaritas (of course), and we were blown away! We are from Oklahoma and visit Texas a lot, and the margaritas were some of the best (if not the best) we’ve had! Highly recommend.
Service was great and food was excellent. Definitely will go back.
We were seeking Mexican within reasonable proximity to Lincoln Center, and Mamasita seemed appealing. So we reserved a table, but the restaurant didn't have our name on the list. Still, the owners -- a tiny, helpful, rolly polly couple -- promised to get us in & out in time for our show that evening. They gave us the tightest spot for 2 in the joint, and my wife had literally no room to move, but somehow we managed. She had a quesadilla that she enjoyed, and I tried a spinach burrito / cheese enchilada combo. Topped with a spicy red chile sauce, it was quite good, as was the Mexican rice, although the beans -- a cross between refried and whole -- were flat tasting. The kitchen came through in plenty of time for us to make our Lincoln Center show, and we survived the ridiculously tight seating arrangement. But the food was just average to slightly above average, although moderately priced, certainly not worthy of luring us back any time soon, let alone being memorable.
really good food!!! Also the service was excellent!! The owner was on site making sure everything was good. Very impressed.
Great food, service and the owner and his family made dinner a special birthday for my daughter. A great respite from Times Square and could accommodate our big group with an extensive menu.
Excellent food! Very loud because it’s a small restaurant. Didn’t love their regular, on the rocks margarita.
The restaurant is small. The seating is uncomfortable. Food is okay. Prices are not too bad. Service not good at all. Very rushed. Very rude. Might go back for lunch but would not recommend for dinner. Very, very loud.
great margaritas and food
My girlfriend and I booked this restaurant and arrived 15 minutes earlier than our reservation. We were forced to wait in the doorway for around 15 minutes as there was a lot of people already waiting to be seated. We were then ignored by the staff as they constantly pushed past us until we managed to attract their attention and made clear we had a reservation for 7. It was now around 7.10. The staff member asked us to find our names on a list which we were not on. She then asked us to prove we had a reservation. After proving we had in fact booked the restaurant as we had stated she said she would find us a table within 5 minutes. Around 20 minutes later and no sign of being seated, we left. While we were stood there we heard of another group of 12 people who, like us, were not recorded on a list and therefore were unable to be seated.
I would not recommend this place to friends. I have been in New York for a year now and easily the worst dining experience I have had.
First time there, and I can’t wait to go back! I had the vegetable cimichanga and absolutely loved it!!!
Very friendly staff!
Friendly owner and his daughters. Mole sauce was great. Solid margaritas. Chicken Flauta was dry and tough.
But overall a nice place for a quick meal
Wonderful food and atmosphere. Will definitely return.
Great place for great food on the way to Mean Girls at August Wilson Theater. Tasty margaritas, too!
Great food and service! Would recommend to all my friends!
Love the food and drinks. Owner and staff were amazing hosts.
SOOOOO OVERPRICED. AWFUL. Really not worth the price.
Terrific vegetarian selection!
