On Christmas Eve, my partner and I enjoyed the tasty enchiladas verdes and the carne asad tacos in the ambient light of this pretty restaurant. They even gave me horchata when I asked for it, even though it wasn't on the menu! The tres leches of chocolate was also sooooo good!

This was a very nice, upscale Mexican-inspired restaurant. I would call it more bourgeois or boojie than authentic though. I'd recommend it if you are out in Bushwick, otherwise I may stick with other upscale Mexican places closer by.

It's hard to tell if I would recommend this place to a friend. I came here around 3 pm with my family to celebrate my grandmother's birthday however I assume that most people come here for the live entertainment which starts around 5-6pm. So my review is simply based on service and food. The food was good. I'm Spanish and I grew up on a variety of spanish foods, so maybe I'm being too judgemental but I didn't find the food exceptional. In a matter of fact, I found the breakfast better than the rest of the food.

Service was "ok". The waitress seemed bothered to be there.

Out of towners in Bushwhich looking for a place to eat, drink and be merry. Loved the food and ambiance. Was concerned that the live music would be too loud, but was pleasanty surprised we could still converse and hear each other. Great spot.

The food was very pricey and not very good. The Octopus( $20) was chewy and the flavors of the mole were not well matched. Carne Asada($27) also chewy and the crema con rayas was bland. The enchiladas were on par with take out Mexican. The place is well designed and interesting. Very disappointed in the food.. it’s too bad. Will not go back or recommend.

This was my 2nd time there, love the place but the service this time around was very poor. We felt forgotten about, I think the server went home early bc the original server was not the same person at the end.

My husband and I stumbled upon Guadalupe in when looking for a place in the area to grab brunch and couldn't be happier we found it. While it was quite (we were the first table seated the moment they opened) it still had a vibrant energy. Service, Food, Drinks, Decor, all of it was amazing.
I wish we lived, closer, I would go much more often. I'm telling all my friends in that neighborhood though!

My grandma is Mexican and I grew up on the border between Texas and Mexico, so I'm pretty jaded when it comes to eating Mexican food in a restaurant. 9.9 times out of 10, what I cook at home is better. Guadalupe Inn is that .1 % that reminds me that there is Mexican cuisine that I just can't make at home. I have literally not had a meal that good since the summer I spent in Mexico City, and it might have been the best mole I've had in my life... don't tell my grandma ;)

I think it’s a bit over the top to charge cover when you’re already having dinner... cocktails are inventive and tasty. Food was good - expensive tacos basically. Quality ingredients. Good flavors. The pastor was definitely the star of the show and had we known it was so grande we wouldn’t have ordered anything else. Music was enjoyable and not overpowering if sitting in bar area.

My boyfriend and his family enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Guadalupe Inn that offers live enterainment on certain dates and hours. We order the platter that brings the taco stand of alpastor to our table. We enjoyed this delicious meat with handmade tortillas in which we had to order so more because it was not enough for our alpastor taco stand. The waiter were not the best in attending us but the food runner was such a wonderful gentlemen. He assisted us much more and brought tortillas, sauces and more condiments without an issue. To pair our alpastor tacos we had micheladas, margartias and beer which were all amazing. After our delicious meal and drinks we just had to get dessert, we ordered one of each and shared these tasty pastries. So if you are looking for good food,environment and drinks Guadalupe Inn is the place to go!

It's a cabaret restaurant circa 1950 Cuba. Fantastic for dining, conversation, listening to music and even a spin in the aisle if you really love the song. Everyone is extremely friendly, the food is amazing, the mezcal and tequila selection is stunning. Just grab a group or a friend date and go.

Our first visit to this restaurant was for a World Cup brunch. The place was packed so you would expect service and food quality to maybe suffer a little but this was not the case. The service was fantastic and my meal was one of the best I’ve had in recent months. We will definitely return.
