We had a pretty good time, service was a bit slow but they were busy so that’s fine. Just odd that they marked us as a no show on open table. We were there, we checked in, we spent money, I have the credit card bill...not sure why we were marked no show.

The quality of food was very poor ,especially for the price. The chicken wings came out cold and squishy 🤮. My fajita were tasteless. And the drinks full of sugar!! I would never go back

The original margarita was really good. We ordered the taco tower, which was good but the meat could’ve been seasoned a little better. Overall, good enough to eat. Taco tower can be shared with 4+ people depending on how much you eat.

One of the best Mexican restaurants in NYC. The service is amazing, the food & drinks are great & the prices are affordable. This was my second time visiting & it was just as great of an experience as the first. Definitely recommend.

Caliente cab is a wonderful place to eat and have a good time. I reserved a table to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. I arrived a bit early and we were seated. When I reserved the table online I asked that the staff accompanied us to sing happy birthday to my daughter. Other's were getting the staff sing happy birthday but my request was never honored. Other than that I had a good time there.

The food was great and it has a lovely and colorful atmosphere. It could be more spacious in accomodating/seating guests. The food portions require extra table space so that's something they should keep in mind.

Our waitress wasn’t very friendly, the drinks overpriced, the vegetables not seasoned and overall the only positive part was the outdoor seating!

I thought the food was very good and the drinks however the price of the small drinks were on the high side you get a better deal with large drinks

My favorite thing were the piña coladas! So yummy and refreshing... the nachos were divine as well. Our entrees weren’t the best but would definitely go back for drinks and nachos.

Enjoyed the Chimichanga but it was extremely difficult to carry on a conversation. The restaurant was packed and the noose level was off the charts. It was a Friday night so perhaps that’s why.

I’ve been going to this restaurant for years and haven’t been there in a minute so when I got there I was pretty glad because It was also my daughter birthday and took her for her first time I’ve been telling the food is amazing but this day the food was bland so we was disappointed maybe they changed chefs I really don’t know but they lost there touch

This is great food. Simple but extensive menu with all the Mexican favorites you want. Homemade salsas were delicious (as was the guacamole).

The service was good and fast. We enjoyed everything we ordered and would definitely return when in the village area. If you’re looking for good quality Mexican food in a fun environment, check out Caliente Cab!

The food was great, like deliciously fabulous (great job, guys!) That said, we made a reservation and my friend and I were seated next to each other on the same side which makes for awkward conversation. Our server left a lot to be desired - after getting our order he did not check on us again to refill drinks, ask how our meal was, or even bring us the check (we waited 20 minutes after having plates cleared). I am recommending, because I am sure a restaurant that has been around so long doesn't get its reputation on such inattentive service. Just be aware.

I was hoping for so much more. I Follow their page on Instagram everything looks so great. Guacamole taste good, the street corn was OK. The first coconut Mojito I ordered was fantastic. The second coconut Mojito I ordered was overpowering so not great at all I couldn’t even finish it. Our main dish was just tacos, we waited an hour For 2 tacos each. Which was super small not filling at all. So after we ordered the cheese nachos Because we were still hungry and they were OK not great.

Went for brunch on Sunday! What a great deal! 2 drinks and an entree all under $20! Where can you get that in NYC?! Always a great time and the drinks are great! I go all the time with my girlfriends for a guaranteed fun night! Highly recommend but make a reservation if it’s a weekend evening dinner.

Had brunch and ordered the sizzling steak ranchero. The dish was well prepared and the steak was cooked exactly how I ordered which was medium rare. The steak was very tender and juicy, the eggs were perfectly done over easy and the sizzling plate was sizzling. I was not disappointed and the food was delicious. My waiter asked if I wanted chips and salsa which is a small additional cost recommended the mango frozen margarita and they were so good I had 2 of them. Service was impeccable and I couldn't ask for more.
