Guadalupe Inn Ratings and Reviews
Don't let the gritty industrial environs dissuade you from stopping here. It's unprepossessing from the street, perhaps, but once you enter it's so gracious, almost opulent. Lots of space, very gracious, upbeat service, and the food is really excellent and original. Try the squash blossom starter! One of the best Mexican restaurants in NYC, in my opinion.
The place itself is beautiful, very well designed,
Food at the time we ate are soso and was very late.
Expensive but not worth the price.
I’m saying this based on the day we had dinner
Perhaps a diffrent was on that shift at the time.
It’s a bit loud by the lounge so if you want to converse with friends get a table near the front/entry.
I’ll be back another time. Perhaps it would a better experience.
My friends and I went out for a meal last night at Guadalupe Inn and the restaurant was vile! To start we were given the check before asking for it, although we intended on having a few more drinks while enjoying the music. After paying the check and leaving a fat tip, we were rudely told (not asked) to leave immediately because they had another party waiting for the table.
We told the staff that this situation was absurd as we had nothing to do with the restaurant’s lack of planning. Instead of feeling apologetic, the manager told us “sorry, this is Friday in NYC, you’re supposed to eat and be finished in 2 hours.”
If the restaurant feels so passionately about this unwritten two hour dining “limit”, the least they could do is give the guests a heads up when the reservation is made. Or write it on the page that they have a limit so people can decide whether or not they are comfortable with it.
To make matters even worse, we were charged $10 per person on the check as a cover for the band, and couldn’t even enjoy them playing because we were told to leave midway through the first set.
The food and drinks were fine, but the service really soured the experience. I would not recommend eating there unless you intend on eating very fast, and paying for a performance that you can’t watch!
I was visiting my daughter, Brookyn's newest resident. We did a quick search for a place to eat a late Sunday lunch, and found the Guadelupe Inn - what a pleasant surprise. By happenstance, we arrived just as their Bossa Nova band started to play at 2p on Sundays - love The Girl from Ipanema! Such fun - we will definitely be returning!
We thank Guadalupe Inn for such a great partnership with the Celebrate Mexico Now Festival. It was the best showcase of an intimate setting to enjoy good food,music and mezcal!. Let's do it again soon! Gracias y felicidades por tan hermoso lugar deliciosa comida, música y mezcal
This is my 2nd visit to Guadalupe Inn. The attraction being their dining space with a beautiful stage and live performances from live bands to burlesque.
This last visit I was disappointed with the service.
Our table wasn't ready at our reservation time which was fine but it took a long time to get drinks at the bar and once we were seated we were waiting a long time for each step like someone to initially come over and greet us and take our order.
Perhaps they were under staffed that night.
I wouldn't let this deter you from experiencing the tasty cocktails and delicious dishes...and entertainment! It's still worth it!
Service was outstanding, food was delicious and the Cuban band was great!!
We had gorditas de chicharron y carnitas, guacamole, jicama & cactus leaf salad and trompito al pastor. Entrees are shareable, at least 2 -3 people for sure.
Food was tasty and delicious!
Will be back!
Took my (somewhat socially conservative) mother here for her birthday, along with 3 others, to dine, drink and experience Champagne Riots risque cabaret show. It was raucous fun and my mother had a blast watching the raucous show, because of the inclusive vibes created by the staff, performers and hilarious MC. The restaurant is set up to accommodate groups and there were a few other decent sized groups (6-10) in the main dining room. Service is good, and attentive. The hostess was a pure delight. The share plates and tacos are all flavorful, with a decent amount of spice. Highly recommend the Trompito al Pastor for a larger dish.
Food was good, music was a nice touch, drinks were okay. Service was seriously off. Initially there appeared to be only two women working-okay I get it. However midway through our meal our server stopped coming around. I thought things would be better when I saw that a third woman joined the staff but she seemed to only see the other tables. I had to flag down our server several times to ask for water or drinks and being that we paid for the two hour boozy brunch it was really annoying. It was especially upsetting to sit there watching the workers tend to tables around us yet no one stopped by unless we flagged them down and even then they didn't always hear me call out or see me gesturing and then they'd forget to bring what we asked for. Oh our server did come by to smile and offer us coffee/dessert right before we paid the check. Since My friends and I dislike being treated as though we are invisible we will not be returning.
Food here is excellent. In my opinion this is the best Mexican restaurant in northern Brooklyn (williamsburg, Bushwick & Greenpoint). Restaurant consists of two rooms: front room has a bar with 5-6 sit down tables. The back room is a performance venue where there are many tables and they serve you food. I have only been to the back room once, and they had a comedy show. Comedy show was pretty awesome.
My Momi is in from Florida and my sister and I took her to this quaint, place with really great food. I went for the act "MarSala" Band which I had seen in the East Village in the Fall -wonderful (but didn't expect all the talking in the background during the performance). In either case Great time, would recommend, would definiately go there again!! Thanks Desiree -(my daughter's name is DesiRae" (I know...NOT the normal spelling) : } the Tuna Sear Beat Salad was HEAVENLY Indeed - for a wonderful experience ..Oh ....and the Lovely "Pedro" at the bar!!
The best thing about Guadalupe Inn was the vibrant and celebratory atmosphere. The staff did a wonderful job at listening to my needs and trying to deliver. They were very attentive, friendly, and checked in often. The music was just wonderful and put everyone in a great mood. If you'd like to talk to friends, make sure to sit in the front room. If you'd like to party while eating, the back room is great. The cocktails were very creative. I had a grapefruit margarita and my friend had a wonderful drink accompanied by fried crickets. It was all delicious. The only thing I wasn't crazy about were the entrees. While the appetizers were fresh, nuanced, and delicate, the main entree, Trompito al Pastor which was recommended, was extremely dry and not flavorful, even though it came with three types of sauces. The sauces should accompany a dish, not make it edible because it's dry. Our table had one taco each and didn't finish it. The Pescado Envuelto was a bit better and beautifully presented but could have been fresher. It was really the Tostadas del Tuna (shareable plate) that was the winner. It was delectable, rich with flavor, fresh, and cooked just right. The positives of this place far outweigh anything else. This is a lovely, festive restaurant to go with friends, a great addition to the neighborhood, a place alive with music that takes customer service seriously. I would recommend, for certain.
Great service. The staff was attentive and accommodating. The food was very good but I would've appreciated a little more spice. The octopus and shrimp aguachile was superb and the carne asada tacos were among my favs. And yes they carry Herradura Tequila...sipping on a reposado neat is always a plus.
Get there early to enjoy seating in the back room for the performance. Unfortunately we got there late last night and to sit in the front room so we got to enjoy the melodys but missed sitting front and center as we have in the past.
Overall a great experience and we would definitely return.
