1492 New World Latin Cuisine - Midtown
Such good food!!! I had seafood enchiladas, my husband had a pulled pork dish, and my friend had an open face tamale. All three entrees were superb! We also shared a side of their coconut rice, which was perfection, and the house queso dish was also delicious! I would go back to this place just for the chips and salsa. It was honestly the best Mexican/Latin food we have eaten in a long time - fresh, delicious, and not your boring every day restaurant Mexican food. The only thing I would have changed was the noise level. It was so loud in the restaurant that it was difficult to have conversations with your table. Maybe that just means I am getting old . . .
Food was ok, not great. Waiter was very attentive. Restaurant is always super loud and if you have a party of two,your table is always by a door or the kitchen.
It was great food, wonderful server Ela. Had her help with our choices. Perfect! Seafood enchiladas and pulled pork.
I took my girlfriend for Valentine's day and we were pretty disappointed. The service was pretty bad. I had to wave down the waiter everytime we needed anything because he didn't really check on us. We had a couple drinks and they were all really weak and not very good. The food was alright, my girlfriend's duck enchiladas were good but my seafood enchiladas where pretty bland and not very good. I don't think we will be back.
Food was great except the carne aseda was under cooked. Service was excellent.
Love the food. It's just very loud and difficult to have a conversation at your own table.
Our first visit prior to a show downtown. The waiter provided a knowledgeable rundown of menu choices. Not only did we have interesting choices, but the food was extra tasty. Thank you.
Great place to eat!!! We will be back!!! Thanks!!!
The food, as always, was fantastic. The service usually is top-notch. Unfortunately, this time around I can't say the same. Very inattentive waitress.
Lunch service at 1492 is great! I go often for business lunches. Dinner service is poor. Last night, it took a long time to get water, setups and our order taken. Our beers never came even though we asked our waiter a couple of times. I finally went to the bar and ordered them myself after our food was delivered. My husband’s order was wrong. Being seated next to the swinging doors of the kitchen was very distracting, as it appeared that perhaps the staff was having difficulty and talking loudly to each other. No apologies and we were charged for the beers.
I love this restaurant, great food and drinks!
Always consistently good on all fronts. Wish they still made the Perfect Margarita in the shakers and poured straight into a martini glass .
The menu has changed since my last visit and not for the better. I took a suggestion from the waitress and had the pork shoulder. Bad choice! The other meal at the table was enchiladas and they were very greasy.
Love 1492. Always great experience. Took some 1st timers w/ us and they enjoyed it as well.
I have been to 1492 many times and sadly this was the first bad experience I’ve ever had. All of our food was cold, the rice was over cooked and mushy. We had the queso was cold too. I asked our waiter to heat it up and he did but not much. I’m hoping this message gets to management and they will solve these issues because I really like 1492.
The food was fabulous. We went for lunch with friends and we all enjoyed the food. Best salsa anywhere.
This has been our special occasion restaurant for birthdays several times over the last few years. Tonight I was highly disappointed. We made a reservation for 7:00 and were not seated until 7:30. We were then seated at a table only partially set with plates and silverware. Our first two bowls of tortilla chips were half filled with crumbs. It took an extra long time to receive our food, which took a while for the server to bring out with three separate trips. My tacos were not even hot and the corn tortillas were hard like they had been sitting out. Chicken fajitas came out just as strips on a regular plate (not on a skillet)-maybe this is how they serve them now???
Four of us had dinner reservations. Three orders came out okay and one (chicken enchiladas) were cold in the interior and had to be sent back. Gave the appearance they were frozen and reheated. Problem was corrected in reasonable time. I did not pay the bill so I have no idea if there was any compensation for the cold food. No real apology that I could discern from staff.
Best shrimp tacos I've ever had - hands down! The steak tacos were incredible. Rare, tender steak, and it was so inexpensive.
My wife, son and I all ended up with stomach aches after our dinner. The food settled like bricks and caused nausea later on. And while we had made a reservation, we still had to wait about 30 mins before seating. Our server had to be reminded several times to bring us items we had asked for, including our drinks.
Our server completely forgot about us. We didn't get chips refilled until our meal was almost over, and he forgot our drinks multiple times
Always a treat to go to 1492. Our go to for Latin food. Service is always very attentive without being overbearing, and the food is always prepared abd presented in a way that makes us confident in ordering anything. This trip my wife had a trio of street tacos, and I had the duck enchiladas. All were excellent! And the way they infuse a touch a tropical fruit into everything sets their food apart. Go and enjoy!
The food was great but I’ll never go back. It was so loud in there I literally was yelling across the table at my fiancé and nobody seemed to care. Not to mention that a table of 22 that we’re waiting on their table literally surrounded us while we tried to enjoy NYE and our engagement. I was terribly disappointed.
The food was good, but there are other restaurants in the metro with similar food for a few bucks less. The menu isn't descriptive enough and doesn't include the little extras like a dish coming with guacamole or plantains. The main reason I deducted a star is because the restaurant is too crowded with seating and the wait was far too long. Thirty plus minutes to wait for lunch is not appropriate. I think the kitchen has a hard time keeping up with the front of the house.
It was wonderful!!! Food, atmosphere everything 5 stars for sure!!!
The food was really disappointing. I had not eaten here in a few years. A friend wanted to go so we did. All three of us thought the food was very so-so. I will not likely return. Our server was good and she rectified the kitchen mistake.
First time diners. We had traditional Tex-Mex (enchilada and quesadilla) as well as Cuban carne asada. All really good. Great service and a pleasant atmosphere in Midtown OKC. We’ll be back.
The portion sizes remain gigantic, but someone needs to sit and examine the menu. The main dishes are all very sweet, especially since everything is served over the coconut rice.
This was my first and only time to dine at 1492 New World Latin. The service was disappointing as we had an uninvolved server. My order came out wrong and had to be taken back, when my order made it back to me the fish smelled foul and unappetizing.
It was so dark that I had to use the flashlight on my phone to read the menu.
For what I thought this establishment was supposed to be, my family left disappointed and wishing we had just gone across the street to Waffle Champion instead.
The menu has changed & our favorite seafood in a large seafood glass is no longer the same. It is full of other seafood & not nearly as good. We were disappointed after many past visits of the excellent dish.
Food exceptional, service wonderful. But it was loud. Could barely visit.
Outstanding doesn't even begin to describe my first experience at 1492. From the service to the drinks to main courses and even dessert it was all fanatic. Can't wait to go back
Had a great time visiting with our kids on fall break from college especially after the group of obscene talking business men left. Not the restaurant’s fault but made those around uncomfortable and very dispectful. However highly recommend this restaurant and have been many times and will continue to return.
Celebrated my birthday there, because I wanted their Seafood Enchiladas, they were incredible as always.
Service waas outstanding & was able to obtain the shrimp, etc in sauce served in the big cocktail glass that we love.
Excellent first time experience.
We normally love this restaurant but this time not so much. Our waiter wasn’t filling drinks, not bringing correct drinks. Our steak fajitas were yummy as normal but our friends chicken fajitas were cold. My friend ordered no rice and veggies instead and she got rice. We never got the guacamole/sour cream/pico plate for our fajitas. Then there was a screaming baby behind us (I know it isn’t the restaurants fault). Then our bill charged us for an extra beer, one couple also got charged for an extra beer or two, and the other couple got charged for a sprite, no one at our table even had a sprite. After all this they double charged two of our credit cards
Our waitress, Ella, took excellent care of us, as always! Food and drinks were great too!
Always great when we come here. We will definitely be back!
