Cafe Frida - Columbus Ave
Our knowledge and passion for the tequila culture has been awarded by the Tequila Regulatory Council of Mexico since 2006, making us one of the few restaurants in the world of having such honor.
Come and enjoy the warmth of Mexico!
The food was delicious. The drinks were perfect. We “closed the place down” and the staff was very gracious about us being there late. They served a beautiful flan for my husband’s birthday and brought a sombrero for him to wear while he blew out his candle. It was lovely!
The aesthetic is a wonderful homage to Frida Kahlo. Highly recommend! We love this place!
Food was good . It was a lively and fun restaurant.
Great meal last night with family and friends at Cafe Frida, Guac and Caso were terrific, as was the tacos. Extenisve tequila selection, and we enjoyed the Mezcal Flight offering. Cream Cake with Bananas was very good too for desert.
They were doing the floors when we came in so a bit stinky with cleaner. Drinks were watered down.
Great food choices-great for brunch
Great location & tasty food! Great guac & queso condition.
Lovely Mexican restaurant with inspired offerings. It’s a neighborhood mainstay with good service and a lively ambience.
Always a win. Excellent Mexican food and drinks. Fun place!
Margaritas were small and very expensive at 15.00 each! Service was good, extremely noisy. Food was average. Won’t recommend this place or go back. Other Mexican restaurants have better food and less expensive drinks.
Overall a great experience, food is delicious. I ordered epazote mushroom quesadillas and the others in my party all ordered chicken mole and we were all happy with our meals. I just didn’t like that happy hour drinks would be served only at the bar, at 6pm on a Tuesday...I skipped the drinks then.
Love the steak!
Good food. Yummy drinks
A regular neighborhood spot, with great food, service and value. Can get a bit noisy when there’s a full house. Two his/her restrooms that at spotless. One of my favs!
Terrific experience all around! Delicious fajitas and wonderful service!
Great guacamole and huevos rancheros! Cute vibe and reasonable prices
Not enough effort was made to authenticate its cuisine..i had a corn pancake for brunch..It was horrible..it looked like they opened a can of cream of corn and mixed. It with pancake batter...horribld
The food is always good. We've eaten here a number of times and have always had a wonderful time. The service is attentive but not intrusive. The tables by the windows offer a great opportunity for people watching.
It was great for brunch. Lot of choices on the menu--eggs and mexican items. Everything was quite tasty. Fun place.
The best. Love it.
Cafe Frida is awesome! Great food and drinks. Superb service!
If you oin the UWS and craving mexican this is the place. Its usually crowded so either make a reservation or be prepared to sit at the bar and have great cocktails or flights and expand your knowledge of tequila and mezcal. You can't go wrong with the guacamole . We had tacos. Both the carne asada and the pork were very well prepared. Will definitely return.
I have been coming here for years. Food is always delicious & the service is amazing.
Great for casual Friday evening. Food is always terrific and the ceviche is so fresh and tasty!
My favorite UWS Mexican Restaurant.
This is the real thing in Mexican cuisine.
Every single thing you order is delicious and their cocktails are prepared perfectly. My choice:
Their “Mojito Cocktails”... of course prepared with rum.
Terrible quesadillas. Fajitas had too much sauce. Guacamole was good. Nice people. Bad Mexican food. Not sure what happened. I’ve eaten there before and it was much better.
The restaurant could not see my reservation upon arrival.
Across the street from the American Museum of Natural History.
Ambience, good service, strong drinks. Food is uninteresting, varied from a too spicy Aztec soup to very bland pork tacos and chicken mole. Adding pick di gallo made the tacos horribly hot. Every couple of years we eat here and we always swear never to come back. Guess we are slow learners.
Delicious Mexican On Upper West Side. We had a great meal. I was not expecting such good food. Guacamole and tacos were great. Everything was fresh and flavorful!
Hands down our favorite neighborhood Mexican restaurant - great great delicious food always! (Tampiquena, guacamole and carne asada tacos). Service is THE BEST - we love Alex :). Never ever disappointing!
Try the Ceviche! Always a favorite of mine and comes with a lot of other great selections.
Okay place with expensive prices for small quantities and decent quality.
Fish taco sauce could b better service so so he forgot appetizer
Best authentic Mexican Restaurant in the City.
Service is outstanding
Food is ok
The food here was just OK, which is disappointing given the prices, which are steep for non-gourmet Mexican fare. The fajitas were particularly pricey and were disappointing with chicken that tasted steamed instead of grilled. Even the margaritas were less than delicious. Overall, this place is not terrible but also not great, and certainly not worth the price.
Great food delicious cocktails and good service! Outstanding guacamole, cheese w chorizo and pork special all outstanding
Some of the best Mexican food I've had. Hands down.
