Chela Modern Mexican
This is still pound for pound the best Mexican in the city!
always good- limited menu bc of virus occupancy issues
Service was really great, as soon as I stepped in I was greeted.
The waiters kept checking in making sure our glasses were full and we were alright.
Food was great - I thought it wasn’t going to fill me up but it did.
Always treat. From the food to the service. Waiters and managers are cool under pressure and go above and beyond to provide the best experience. Emily is a fave and always remembers us.
And as a diehard Mexican food purist, I was dubious about the steak nachos. I was very wrong. They blew my mind.
Delicious start to finish, from the complimentary chips and salsa to the drinks (try the coffee negroni) to the food (I love the seafood enchiladas). A must-try!
We had a party of 9 including a baby for a bday celebration. From the hostess, to the bus boy, everyone made sure we had a memorable celebration. They accommodated the baby, had bday candles which I forgot to bring, and turned down the music a little when we asked. Oh yeah...and even though we ordered different dishes, everyone raved about the food! Highly recommend Chela!
Great place. Delicious food and drinks are phenomenal. Wait staff is very friendly and responsive. Highly recommend this place! Only down side, is it can get loud. But what do you expect, if it's a really good restaurant it can get busy. Will be back there soon!
Food was good as usual. However wait service left a bit to be desired. Yes, it was busy but i noticed other tables being bussed without asking, drinks were forgotten. Not good service tonight
Great food and atmosphere. Service was exceptional
Great food, very tasteful and my steak tacos were cooked just right. Great drinks too!
I love coming here. The food and the drinks are next level delicious.
Food excellent but restaurant is tight in front. Back room more roomy.
Very good. Excellent food
Seafood enchiladas were amazing. Margaritas were great!
Drinks were very good. Inky had the fries as a appetizer. Our meals were great
Wonderful food and service. Fun vibe. Friendly staff.
Man. This place rocks. The food is exquisite. The decor and staff are top notch! Make sure you Uber here because the drinks are supurb. You will not want to stop enjoying yourself. Absolutely coming back here again soon.
I definitely have to go back and try other items in this menu.
Great food and ambiance! The queso fundido is excellent and so is the sangria!
Everything was wonderful at Chela, particularly the food. The huevos fundidos was addictive. And the complimentary chips and salsa were so good I asked for a second serving. The restaurant itself is on the smaller side but lovely nonetheless and the service was attentive without being overbearing. My only issue was the noise level went up as the brunch service wound down and the restaurant prepped for dinner. The music became a little louder than I would have liked but overall I had a wonderful dining experience and plan on returning very soon.
The Greatest Of All Time - Micheladas! And Mushroom - Queso!!!
I’ve been to chela with a group of friends and for a date night and both times have been great!
Amazing food and service. Highly recommended for a date or a group of friends.
Not only was the food absolutely amazing, but the staff were very friendly and the service was great. We were seated within 3 minutes of arriving (on a busy Saturday night), the waitress came to ask if we needed anything within 1 minute, and our food and drinks were brought out in a timely fashion. Towards the end of our dinner, as we were just talking and finishing our drinks, a woman (I’m assuming she was the manager) approached our table and asked if we enjoyed our dining experience—so thoughtful! As we left, every waiter, bartender, chef, and the hostess that was in earshot said a friendly goodnight and thank you for coming! I’ve never experienced that level of hospitality! I would ABSOLUTELY return to try some of the many amazing dishes on the menu!
Always great. One of my favorite places. Never disappointed and leaving there filling fulfilled and knowing that we had a great time and great bang for our buck. Can’t go wrong at Chela
The service was fantastic. The food was good, but a little too expensive. The music was way too loud. We came for dinner and ended up almost losing our voices trying to have a conversation. I don't understand why restaurants think they are nightclubs.
Best guacamole in Park Slope!
The rosemary brown sugar margarita is delicious. The food is really really good.
Had an excellent family birthday brunch
Food was delicious and unique. Highly recommend!
A little noisy, but the food makes up for it. Great for groups.
Our server was amazing and very accomodating to our needs. Exceptional service!! Will definitely come back.
My birthday dinner! such a fun ambiance!
Food was amazing. Good mojitos.
Great Mexican food. Wonderful calamari, not greasy or battered. Suisas were yum.
The food was very good. Fresh and delicious. The fish tacos were incredible!
The staff were all very nice but not as attentive as I'd like. I had to personally go and get their attention for everything. Other than that it was a wonderful experience. I would definitely recommend.
New Year’s Eve diner! Complimentary hat, horns, noise makers and Tequila shots! Frat food, great and friendly service! So happy we chose to celebrate New Years here!
Chela is a a deep and rewarding culinary experience. The flavors of every dish we had were complex and delicious; the textures expertly syncopated. The shrimp flautas appetizer contained soft, briny, perfectly cooked shrimp encased in a crispy, crunchy shell and topped with avocado and mild yet piquant white sauce. The chicken mole is a divine, rich treat. Our daughter’s fish tacos came with crunchy slaw and fries. The portions are ample and we could have shared more. Also-great drinks and huge selection of tequila. It’s a festive place, and a little too noisy. The staff is super friendly.
Absolutely amazing as always!!!
I love this place! The fundido with chorizo is amazing paired with their white sangria! You get fresh chips and salsa while you wait for your food and drinks and the service is always great. If you’re looking for a low key place with good food and drinks, Chela is def the place to go.
