We had a party of 7 and it was the perfect spot for our friends reunion. Cocktails are delicious, the food is so yummy and they made it easy to share. The vibe is cool but intimate and music was great. We love this West Chelsea local spot and completely recommend it. Oh and staff are all so friendly and helpful!

Favorite dishes: Tuna Tostada, Prawns, Tacos and the Steak!

This is the second time in two weeks we've had to wait for over 15 minutes to be greeted by a server after sitting down. Then waited over 10 minutes for our drinks. First time we thought it was just an accident, second time it was undeniable.
This place is incredible for food, ambiance & location but for the past few months the service quality has declined dramatically.

Kahlo has become one of my favorites. The space is very well done, the food is great, the margaritas are yummy, and the staff is attentive and are happy to help with recommendations. The hostess always greets customers very warmly and welcoming. I love Kahlo!

Kahlo offers three variations on guacamole. In an ideal world, we might've ordered all three, but we selected the KAHLO & RIVERA version. Hands down, it was the absolutely BEST guacamole I've ever had--with home-made tortilla chips to die for. We tried 3 different cocktails from their extensive list--all were delicious, if small.

The room is elegantly decorated, lush, and welcoming. The noise level was a bit loud once the place filled up.

Delighted to have spent a lovely evening there!

This restaurant is such a hidden gem, and the food amazing. Beware though - the last few times I’ve been there, they have the air conditioning at a ridiculously cold setting - so dress warm and expect your food to be cold in about 3 minutes.

Great service and ambiance. We were a group of six that arrived within 10 minutes of each other and we were seated upon arrival so no one had to wait at the door. We had all the appetizers, which were great. Our entrees mixed, the steak and tacos were delicious. I had the branzino fish which I thought was just okay.
We were celebrating my husband’s and a friend’s birthday and our waiter brought dessert with free shots and two sparkler candles for the birthday men. We all agreed that we would definitely go back to Kahlo

Wonderful attention to service and aesthetics. The staff is friendly and attentive; the room pays homage to its namesake Frida Kahlo and is beautiful.
The food was a mix of delicious and lacking.
The appetizers, Aguachile, Kahlo and Rivera Guacamole and El Charro guacamole were delicious. The mains were disappointing, but desserts were good. Extremely disappointing was the fact that we could not get a cup of coffee to go with those deserts! Our waiter brought out a shot of silver tequila for each of us to make up for that omission!
I thought the Price tag came in way too high for the quality of the food.

Amazing food and service, in a truly exquisite setting! We shared the lobster in coconut appetizer, which was phenomenal, and the entrees were the barbacoa tacos and the chicken entree. Both fantastic! The margaritas were super delicious, though might be a touch heavy on the salted rim. Would perhaps suggest a different type of salt also as this was pretty finely granulated. A more flake or rock style, perhaps even smoked, would be divine! I look forward to visiting Kahlo again!

Ordered "La Catrina", "Lobster Coctel", "Tuna Tostadas", and "Shrimp al Pastor" for three people at brunch time. The portions were shockingly small for each dish (Tuna Tostadas: three cracker-sized bites for $19?). The dishes themselves tasted fine (not a big fan of the Lobster Coctel though), but you'd expect more for $100 total including tip -- all three of us came out hungry, and I say that as a person whose portions are on the small side. I also had the sense the restaurant was understaffed. There was a single server for the hall, and the food wait time was also substantial.

I've been in NYC for a while and have been to many restaurants at this price point. I've never written a single restaurant review, but man this place was really not it. I strongly suggest other restaurants for this price.

Very nice modern Mexican cuisine. Enjoyed the empanadas and the arrachera steak the most. The mezcal flight was a great experience as well. Only negative critique is that the lobster coctel did not feel worth the price.
