Always such a treat to go to Casa Enrique. Service is amazing, food is consistent and well...the enchiladas verde speak for themselves (AMAZING!). As Texans we are always looking for great Mexican in NYC and it’s easier said than done. Casa Enrique has become a quick favorite.

FOOD - We got the pineapple pork and fish avocado tacos which were tasty, but not mind-blowing. The carrots were very sour, and the poof of avocado droplet on the side was very messy to eat with. I guess they were trying to "elevate" the look and work with its plating, but I'm not sure it worked. Then we got the Menudo soup, that was a little too rich (very salty) for us. Again, I feel like they're trying too hard to "elevate" comfort food.

SERVICE - The waitress we not was friendly or welcoming at all. When asked to reiterate their cocktail specials, she seemed very impatient. It definitely made the experience quite unpleasant.

AMBIANCE - It's cute and cozy.

Maybe we just ordered the wrong food because we left wondering how is this a Michelin one star place?

A fun place to go with friends. loud and energetic but excellent cocktails and food. service was good. Food was excellent but not really outstanding, although it depends on what you order. the mole was excellent but pork ribs not that great.

Everything was good only issue was service particularly from the bar was a bit slow and our server only told us about appertizer specials but not entrees which we learned about from the table next to us who ordered. Overall though I did like the restaurant and I would go back.

Casa Enrique is a great restaurant: the food is excellent, the staff is friendly and helpful without being overbearing, and prices are reasonable.
The only observation I could make is about the noise. We had a table nearby where people were a little loud, and the acoustics of the room didn't seem to help.
Special mention to the cocktails, refreshing and original.

Noise level was very high but the food was wonderful. So you can either scream, or just silently contemplate the universe (or order takeaway and eat it at the Hunters Point waterfront). But it’s really all about the food, which was outstanding.

Food was very good. Service started out great and then degraded as tables filled. At least 15 minutes for drink order. Entrees brought out in middle of appetizer. If service was better I’d give it 5 stars.

We were rushed out by waiters several times, and didn't even stay for 45 minutes. I ordered a ceviche which was 21 dollars and smaller than my fist. It wasn't listed as an appetizer, and was priced as an entree. No one said anything, and it's a shame because it seemed like portions were generally generous.

Delicious traditional Mexican cuisine. The Posole soup was delicious and reminded me of home. The restaurant is a bit pricey, but well worth it as the cuisine is spot on.
Our service was attentive and made some good recommendations.

Service was not reflective of a Michelin star. Upon taking our seat, waitress approached table to asked if we wanted Guacamole to begin our meal. No name, water offering, greeting. Then he took an extensive time to return to the table when I told him to please provide us with water and that upon looking at the menu we will let him know our choices. I ordered the mole enchilada, the sauce was delicious but the food was lukewarm at best. Renzo, name of the waiter ( that I only found out from the bill) never came back to the table to inquiry if everything was well or if we were enjoying our food. The flan was tasty. Other items that were order, Guacamole, Beets salad, Green enchiladas and tacos al pastor were ok but no better than your local Mexican/Taqueria establishment. I usually don’t write a negative review and I go out to eat two to three times a week but I really felt compelled to share my experience with the open table community.

I’ve been here before and this restaurant is consistently excellent; while the restaurant was a bit loud, the service was excellent as were the salsa verde enchiladas de pollo and the crab tostadas.

Quality of the food was good. Meat nice and tender. Ordered quacamole hot but was actually very mild. Overall good quality food but nothing was outstanding or surprising and don’t get it where this star comes from.
Why will we not come back? So many people packed in a small space with low ceiling makes it unbearably noisy (we were also not lucky with neighbors 20cm away who were above average noisy). Almost impossible to have a conversation.
