Casa Enrique met my expectations, and then some. One of the best Mexican meals I've ever had in NYC, and I've had my fair share.

The best Spanish restaurant I’ve been to so far, and I’ve been to a few. Don’t want to spoil the experience by telling too much but I’ll say this please just go! You will not be disappointed.

Food is very expensive for what they offer. I went with Hispanic friends used to eat guacamole and tacos and they were disappointed. Tacos were good but $15.00 is too much just for two tacos. Guacamole was not spectacular for $ 15.00 also. Entrees had a more reasonable price. Ambiance was very good, though.

Casa Enrique doesn't disappoint. We were a table of five and each of us thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Perhaps the best chicken with mole sauce and best guacamole in town. Two of our guests were from Spain and one of them commented that this feels like a restaurant from home. The staff, especially at the door, were delightful, warm and welcoming. Great food, great vibe... enjoy.

Professional Mexican cooking with competent staff in a somewhat crowded space. Mole was rich and chocolatey with serious level of chile. Pork rips Chiapaneco were a delight. Perhaps the best Mexican in a town known for serving bland crowd pleasing Mexican fare.

It was my boyfriend’s birthday surprise dinner. Mexican food is his favourite so I researched and saw that Casa Enrique was the only Mexican restaurant with a Michelin star in New York so I assumed it would be a fantastic meal. I was wrong. We had a very underwhelming experience. The service was good. The big problem was the food. It was VERY disappointing. I’ve dined at quite a few Michelin Star restaurants and have always left feeling satisfied and impressed. I don’t understand why this restaurant has a Michelin star at all. Overpriced for what you get. Nothing special or particularly creative. The food was not bursting with flavor. The octopus special was rubbery and the short ribs special had a nice flavor (not amazing) but was definitely not as tender as it should have been. I’ve had better short ribs at the Mexican counter-serve eatery at the end of my street. There just was nothing particularly special about anything we ate or drank there. The flan dessert was the best thing and we could get a flan just as good at many a Mexican New York restaurant. Maybe we should’ve ordered items from the regular menu and not the specials. I don’t know but we won’t be returning to find out.

We live in the area and have eaten at Casa Enrique many times. The food is always excellent, the service is welcoming and friendly - even if the restaurant wasn't nearby I think we'd be regulars!

Food was very good, but the service was average. It seemed as if they were still sleeping. When asked for a recommendation the server listed off over half the menu. It is still well worth a visit.

Increibe comida y servicio. Empezamos con Guacamole medio spicy. Los tacos no tienen desperdicio y el pollo con mole espectacular. Amplia seleccion de cervezas y tequilas mexicanos . Unica observacion para que uno se sintiera en mexico en cuerpo y alma seria subir un poco la musica en la terraza ya q estaba muy bajita y no se oia. Por supuesto musica mexicana ! Volvere sin duda.

While the food was superb we felt extremely hurried throughout the meal. We were never allowed to finish a course before having a plate swept away midbite and another course plopped down in front of us. We were in and out of there in 45 minutes.

Our first Michelin Star restaurant. Receptionist to the servers were very friendly and engaging. This was the authentic welcome that will put all guests at ease and feel good about what they are about to experience. A clean place. The servers were out and about, ready to assist the customers. Drinks and main dishes were elaborately suggested. Didn't feel as he was reading off memory. The dishes well presented and the taste was a treat for my taste buds.
Casa Enrique, a business and food created by heart and passion! A big Thank You to the chef and all the employees.
