Quality seems to have diminished now that Cheesecake Factory has taken ownership. Disappointing, as was one of our local favorites.

The food was lackluster and had very little taste. The service was awesome and our server could not have been more attentive. Super cute place, just a bummer about the food being so blah.

Went for lunch with two friends. Food definitely different from same time last year. The salads we ordered had all of the ingredients chopped into minuscule pieces— couldn’t even find the tomato, pineapple and avocado inside the greens. Protein on top skimpy. May return for tacos, but not a place for good salads.

Our waitress was very inattentive and it took forever to get anything we asked for. Food was mediocre . We usually go to the one by Lincoln plaza and will continue that as we have had two bad experiences here now

A Sunday evening not very busy at all. Serviced was pleasant but service was slow. Food was hot when delivered. Food seemed to be overly spiced and detracted from the flavor of the food. Rice was good

The food was great and the service started out great. However, once we received our food, we were ignored. I had to stop our waiter to get us chips, but he forgot. So we stopped a waitress walking by and she brought us chips so we could finish our appetizer. We sipped our sodas moderately and never was asked for a refill until we once again stopped the waiter. We had to flag down the waiter once again so we could finally get our bill. The most annoying part was that our waiter was serving tables right next to us, and we had a corner seat, so he had to walk by us many times to tend to his other tables. We felt ignored, like we didn’t exists, which was unfortunate because we were celebrating a wedding anniversary (which I stated in my reservation through open table). I understand that this isn’t a ritzy steakhouse, but my wife and I rarely get the chance to escape from our 3 young kids, so it would have been nice to have better service and a mention of “congratulations” or something. We love Blanco’s Tacos and have been there many times. The atmosphere is fantastic and the food is great. I still gave the establishment 4 stars because the lack of attention from our waiter isn’t the norm from this location, so I hope this was an outlier and that the restaurant service isn’t getting worse.

I think they were under staffed for NYE. Took awhile to get drinks and the tacos were cold, but good.

A bit too high especially their classic margarita @ 9 bux.

Blanco is a fairly regular stop for us, maybe once a month. They have pretty good traditional style enchiladas. The service can be hit or miss but has steadily improved over time. It’s got a “fun” atmosphere and is a little loud for a more intimate experience but not so loud that you cannot have a conversation. It is better than a lot of the other Mexican places in town and is not overpriced for the category of sit down restaurant it is in.

LOVED the food (and had a great drink too!) The ONLY problem we had was the noise level inside is way too high. Luckily, we were able to sit outside and it was just fine. Highly recommend!

It's always fun to choose amongst the tacos, since all are great. And we've never been disappointed by the service at any of the "Fox" restaurants. Hope neither the food nor the service changes with the recent change in ownership!

Carne asada was overcooked and the changes they made some changes to how they serve the flight drinks that I didn't care for. Also, not sure if they changed the menu or have a separate happy hour menu but I didn't have the food options that I previously liked.

The patio was a perfect place to sit with a baby and a pup. One of our guests was on a special diet and Jason made excellent suggestions to accommodate. Service was efficient! Food was hot and delicious. Overall a great dining experience!

We come to this location twice monthly, and it’s always been excellent. However, now that it’s no longer owned by Fox, and is owned by a chain, it’s no good. Took 70 min from being seated to get our meals, I blame that on operations not the server. The server made no real mention of it, like it was normal, expected, not a big deal. That’s bothersome on the service front. Additionally it took 20 min to get an ice tea from time ordered. Asked two employees to turn misters on patio (it’s 96 degrees out), both stated they would check with manager. Never followed up. This was a favorite for years, but sadly no longer since big corporate chain has taken over.

We were seated right away (with reservation), our waitress was very kind and prompt, and the food was delicious (as always). We sat outside on the patio and it was perfect.
