About Noche Mexicana

Welcome to Noche Mexicana Restaurant. Our food is from Guerrero, a Southwestern state of Mexico. We are from a town known as Tlapa de Comomfort Guerrero, also known as the heart of the mountain in Guerrero. Our recipes have been passed on from our grandparents to our parents and our parents to us. We try our best to keep our recipes as original as possible, so we can give you a taste of the culinary flavor from the heart of the Guerrero Mountains. On our menu you will find from traditional snacks such as tacos, tostadas, sopes, etc; to the more authentic regional dishes, such as pipian de pollo [pumpkin seed sauce with chicken], chileajo de puerco [guahillo chili sauce with pork chops], or the traditional mole poblano with chicken . We have shrimp Mexican style [shrimp with sautéed onions, tomatoes and fresh jalapenos], camarones a la diabla [sautéed shrimp with chipotle sauce]. We have homemade flan; horchata and jamaica drinks. YOU ARE INVITED TO TASTE A PIECE OF MEXICO.

Good food & sangria at very reasonable prices. Friendly staff that didn’t rush us through. Quiet enough for conversation. Would return.

Good Mexican food. When mentioning Open Table reservation, the staff never seems to know what Open Table is. The service is good otherwise. Generous portions. The Noche platter is enough for 2 people. Great black beans & rice. Again, if you want to earn your Open Table points, Noche Mexicana's waitresses have no clue on how to check in a reservation & you will be notified by Open Table that you were a "no show".

The neighborhood Mexican restaurant once again failed to have any idea what Open Table is. I mentioned my reservation & showed the waitress my phone with the information. She claimed to not know anything about Open Table. This happens every time I've been there. She was the only one working so service was slow. If this wasn't such a close choice, I'd doubt I'd make an effort to go back. Food is ok
Since I wrote this review, I was notified by open table I was a 'no show'. I emailed a photo copy of my receipt & after 2 correspondences, I received my points. I am done with Noche Mexicana!

Authentic. Tasty. Substantial portions. Good prices. The piped in ethnic music was contemporary -- not the old fashioned traditional sound that is common at Mexican restaurants. Not a pretty room, but come for the good food and good value.

The service was terrible, it took them literally an hour to deliver the meals....We were two people and there were only two other tables seated. Then others showed up and we were the last ones served. Even the guests next to us where shocked and we laughed about how ridiculous it was. Food was bland and nothing special. All the photos looked great but the reality was bleak.

They were able to accommodate a last minute reservation for a large group. Service was slow even though the restaurant was not busy. Food was great; drinks were strong. Cost was average at about 30 per person.

The food here was disgusting. I had steak and my friend had chicken. We had the most difficult time cutting our meats because they were so hard and rubbery. The waiter was also not good at all. We sat there for almost 30minutes before she even came back to ask us if we wanted our check. The restaurant wasn't even busy so I don't understand why we had such bad service.

Basic and serviceable, but nothing special. Pleasant service and affordable, but there is nothing to go out of the way for here. Just a neighborhood joint that probably is best left for take out.

We were very happy with our food. We found it authentic and fresh. The service lacked urgency and the ambiance was less than stellar. If you are looking for good Mexican food without the frills, this would be a good choice.

We arrived for our dinner and ordered classic margaritas. They arrived along with the habitual chips and salsa.
The chips didn't taste fresh, may have come from a bag; the salsa wasn't anything special; the drink forced us out the door!
We looked at the food served to the table next to us and weren't impressed. Nothing special, not worth putting any money down towards.
We were looking forward to this "authentic Mexican" family-run experience and had to go somewhere else to find it.

Maybe there is too much on the menu for this smallish restaurant. Good cold Mexican beer and decent sangria. We ordered the mixed platter, which included a good variety of treats. The mole rojo pork chops were very thin and tough, I'd rather have one good pork chop than two thin over cooked chops.

The service was pleasant and accommodating and the unfortunate store-bought chips were accompanied by a wonderful tomatillo salsa. But it was downhill from there. Chicken in the enchiladas was dry and the chile relleno was disgraceful. The cheese filling was nowhere near melted--ice cold as a matter of fact. The tortillas were of the supermarket variety. Perhaps they were having an off night but the excellent reviews led me to expect much better.

Some of my family members are from Mexico and they feel that the food at Noche Mexicana is authentic Mexican cuisine. The
price is very reasonable and the portions are generous. A great neighborhood place for the upperwest side.

The food was actually pretty good Mexican. But, the service was slow and disorganized; this wasn't the waitress fault though as there was only one for the entire restaurant. One waitress, dinner rush, 20 tables...

Kitchen would benefit from learning to use spices. Food was good (though my burrito came on a cold side), but lacking spices crosses this place from my list of "dinner with friends" and moves to list of "quick lunch alone".

It is a pleasant, small, building's corner place with lots of light and forthcoming waitresses. Chef is skillful in Mexican food, though it lacks a spice(s) punch one could expect, thus making it fit for general public it addresses. Def great for hearty lunch/brunch alone or as quick meal, but not so much for a long, food enjoying dinner with foodie friends.

The service was ploddingly slow and we had to remind our server several times about our beverages. The chiles rellenos, which were touted as the best in town were, in my opinion, among the worst I've ever eaten. The peppers were not roasted and peeled but hard and rubbery, the cheese was like a mass of gluten, and the sauce was thin and uninspired. It did not settle my month-long craving for chiles rellenos and I will not go back there nor will I recommend the place to others.
