Kahlo is just the best...we are so sad they won’t be able to be open for this month as we go there about once a month, but day one that they are open again, we’re there! In the meantime...they’re doing takeout and delivery and when we ordered everything was amazing, packed so well, and speedy. Ps...AMAZING COCKTAILS!!!

Kahlo was absolutely wonderful. From the moment we walked to the moment we walked out, the host (Marta) was so kind and welcoming. She stopped by our table multiple times and even gave us a quick little story behind the mezcals we were tasting. Our server was excellent as well. He was very knowledgeable and recommended many delicious drinks and food options. 10/10. Would definitely go back!

My go to place since the virus started and they were serving outside. The food and staff are amazing and safe. Tough times and we like to support restaurants that are taking it seriously. This was our first time INSIDE and it was great. Safe. Clean. Temp checks. The food and especially the cocktails are simply amazing. This is the best marg I have had hands down. It isn't a "cheap Mexican" place. This is high end and you pay for it. But worth the stop in .

Kahlo is nailing it! If they have the salmon special, get it. It was delicious. I hope it becomes a regular item on the menu. We've always loved this place since they opened, and have never been disappointed. Staff is super, food is delicious, drinks are exceptional, and so happy that inside dining is allowed again because their dining room is gorgeous, even though they also made lemonade out of lemons and now have a beautiful setup in front of the restaurant that makes you feel like you're on a terrace in Spain. Enjoy!

We loved Kahlo! The food is really exquisite, the service is excellent, and this was our first indoor eating experience since last March. So it was particularly wonderful! Bu-- this is a gem of a restaurant-- so much care has been taken by everyone there to make it special, and this is absolutely one of those places you want to support to keep going during this tough time. Really recommend it! And, we can't wait to return!

The staff was so wonderful and accommodating. Raphael, our server, was excellent.

My only critique is we ordered a few courses and everything came out at once. We were sitting outside, so by the time we ate our way to our entree they were cold!

The food is delicious!!

Kahlo is amazing! We were supposed to get married on Sunday, and so they made a special set up and menu in honor of our postponed celebration. But even if it isn't a special day, they go out of their way to make every guest feel special and so welcome. Amazing food and drinks, a great attitude about adjusting to our new normal, making the exterior as beautiful as they can to match the gorgeous interior of their dining room. Kahlo is a second home to us.

Outdoor dining in West Chelsea! Kahlo basically took their restaurant furniture outside and it actually works! Such a chic set up. We enjoyed our margaritas and tacos alfresco. We will be back.
