The food was amazing but overpriced.

The server was very good but there were too many tables for her to service.

A lot busboys cleaning up and bringing out food.

The server was overwhelmed by having too many tables to serve so we had to wait a lot for her to come around.

The food has amazing flavor! The table really enjoyed the lamb and carne asada mains, ceviche and guacamole. The aguachile margarita also outstanding if you enjoy spicy flavors.

I wanted to experience the food and am posting because I would have appreciated a heads up regarding the amount of screaming infants that were there for Sunday brunch. There were adorable, older, quieter children as well, but our table between 2 families with screaming babies ruined the atmosphere. The food looked amazing, albeit spicy, and I may try to go again if I am back in the area during school hours.

The food and service are both amazing. The staff are attentive and invisible at the same time. The craft cocktails are delicious. They hit the perfect balance and work so well with the very flavorful food. Really fun place!

The margaritas kicked off the evening nicely. Always worth the money when a place does not use cheap tequila. The guacamole was extremely fresh and we love the sauces that came with it so we could spice it to our liking. When our entrees arrived we knew we were in for a treat and we were not disappointed. The Carne Asada was some of the best meat we've ever had. It was cooked perfectly and the seasoning was mouthwatering. We also had the De Pollo En Salsa Verde which had a nice kick to it and looked exactly like the pictures on yelp, which is not often the case. We were too stuffed to order dessert, but already decided we will be back again to try more of the menu.

Food was fresh and outstanding. I work in the industry and I must say the service was on point and truly made the overall dining experience. Leo was an excellent and attentive server along with the incredible support staff. Busser/food runner was a ninja! He was fast, polite, and aware, yet not invasive. Staff seemed generally happy to be working there which is half the experience. Thank you for a wonderful meal! I’ll definitely recommend and return for a third time in the near future.

Hip and purposefully funky. Great tequila shot menu and a great house margarita! Terrific guacamole and yum soft tacos. We loved it

Food was amazing and very good value for money. Though, the service was annoyingly quick, which made us eating super fast and gave us the feeling that we need to go fast because they wanted to stuff as many reservations as possible.

Food was amazing! Felt like we were transported back to Mexico City. Price was higher than expected and does not reflect prices on their website. Will definitely be for the chicken mole

Came here for brunch on a Sunday and could not have had a better experience. Excellent eggs and mole, horchata, cocktails, and pork sandwich. Service was prompt and friendly without rushing us. Will definitely be back.

It was my anniversary dinner and they sat us next to the bathroom. We asked for 3 items

Chips and guac
Crab tostados
Tacos

All to come out separately (once we finished one item they bring the next) and they brought them all out together before our drinks even came.

For a Michelin star restaurant I was extremely disappointed in the lack of attention to detail. How does it take 25 minutes to make 2 margaritas especially at 5:30 PM when the restaurant wasn’t crowded.

Waste of money and not the way I would envision spending my anniversary

Casa Enrique is amazing. Love everything about it. The food is insanely delicious. Hot sauce is hot. Green sauce not hot but flavorful. Beet, jicama, carrot and mint salad yummy. I can’t wait to go back.

The service at casa Enrique was nothing less than quality. My friend and I sat at the bar for brunch and the bartender Chanda was very engaging and knowledgeable about mezcal and the drinks on the menu. We were having such a nice experience we stayed a lot longer than expected. It’s one of my favorite go to places in the neighborhood.

This place is amazing. We've been there half a dozen times and our main problem now is trying new items while still getting all of the things we know we love. My absolute fave are the meatballs - the sauce they come in is heavenly. As I write this I am dreaming of my next return.

This is the real deal: great Mexican food in NYC. Unfortunately most diners were ordering only guacamole and tacos. Try the sopes, try the mole, try the enchiladas - all excellent.
