Great cocktails, food was great. There is also a great little secret speakeasy and club underneath the restaurant which was amazing!

Amazing food , great ambience and friendly staff ! I will definitely go back again. I tried La Ceiba cocktail with the Tasajo Tacos and it was delicious.

This place used to be among the best for go-to foodie brunch. Unfortunately, we have noticed a steady decline over the last year which came to a head on our most recent visit-- unnecessarily antagonistic, rude waiter (right from walking in the door through the whole meal), unacceptably slow service with a completely empty restaurant except for our table, and lukewarm, uninspired food and old coffee. We will not be back and have reached out to our friends to whom we have made the mistake of recommending this restaurant.

Solid brunch menu. Reliably good service and thoughtfully crafted drinks. Our go-to spot for family/friends visiting NYC

Our waiter could not have been more rude. Not to mention, we heard the other waitstaff speaking and laughing about our group for the entire evening. The only competent person there was, whom I assume to be the GM, but he left 30 minutes into our meal....shame, considering the decor has some real charm

Food was okay. Atmosphere was good. Service was good. I thought the drinks would be the best part, but they were subpar.

2 meals didn't come out with the rest because the server didn't put them in. They arrived after everyone else was finished, and there was no effort to make up for it. The server didn't understand why we told her we weren't paying for those meals. Most of the food was mediocre at best, besides the fish tacos which were terrible. Guac and drinks were good but not good enough that I'd ever go back.

The food here is really good, as are the drinks. Service is spotty. I think they are understaffed in general and have noticed this pattern over the last few times I've eaten here. On Saturday night it was the worst service I've experienced there. It seemed there were maybe two wait people (maybe just one?) for the whole place and bus boys backing them up. Bus boys were fine, wait staff not so much. For the price point, which is on the high side - and that it's standard Mexican food - the service needs to improve for me to go back. When I say it's standard fare, I mean it's good but not fancy food. For instance a tlayuda - a wheat tortilla with vegetables and black beans is $28 - that's quite expensive for a pizza of the same size. Granted, it is a big portion to be shared with a few people, but it seems on the high end for a place where you have to work to get the one server's attention (and even on a slow night that same server is not very attentive).

Great food, drinks, and service! Only bad thing was the upstairs bathroom could have been cleaner... the floor was soaking wet, it was like a dive bar bathroom which did not match the cleanliness of the rest of the restaurant.

As always, the staff was informal yet extremely professional and welcoming, from the hostess to the busboys to the bartender. Everyone! The food was authentically Mexican but not heavy and gloppy as some "American" Mexican restaurants tend to be. Drink glasses rimmed with wonderful mix of unusual spices and salts. Portions neither too large nor too small. Staff seem to encourage friends to linger and deepen their friendships. On the Lower E Side to have a POPULAR restaurant that is not a NOISE bar is rarity and a treasure. And there is art work by great contemporary artists. (That could rotate a little more often.)

Good place to grab some food and margaritas in lower east side. I had the burrito and thought it was quite good.

Food was delicious but pricey. Especially for Mexican which is usually quite moderate pricing. Service was wonderful and ambiance quite nice. Overall, a delightful evening with great food.
