    I was there for brunch. it is a beautiful spot! we got there earlier than our reservation and the hostesses greeted us so welcomingly and give us the table with not prob … the Bonito cocktail was so amazing (I had 3!), my girlfriend had the Frida and she loved it!, the guacamole with pumpkin and goat cheese was quite good!!! we share some apps and the best was the tuna tostadas and the esquites (you can add black truffles!!!), our server was very friendly an on point! Would love to come back for dinner soon, prices definitely reflect the quality and the upscale experience, worth it!

    It is a wonderful place to dine. It is lively inside and calm outside. The food is excellent as is the service. A special shout out to Diana, our hostess, who was very friendly and made us feel most welcome and to our server, Tania who was appropriately attentive.

    We enjoyed our dinners overall for the most part. The noise level in the space was overwhelming ... very difficult to hear the friends I was with at the table. I ordered the sea bass and it was one of the best I've had. The accompanying sides with it (pureed sweet potatoes and spring vegetables) were also quite good. My friend ordered the mole chicken and he said it was flat and bland. My partner ordered the Pibil and thought it was great! However, we ordered one of the Guacamole for the table, and the portion was MUCH too small for the $18 charge for it. Disappointing and troubling. Also - in general, though prices are up these days in most places, your prices are somewhat excessive in general. And they often veer from what is on your website. I realize the website includes a caveat, but you should update the menu/prices on your website each week since things change so frequently. Not sure if I would recommend this to a friend. Likely yes... but with reservations.

    The drinks were over priced. The food was very subpar I was charged 9 for a bottle of beer and 72 dollars for 3 margaritas in addition to the food I ordered this def wasn’t worth it. The fish tacos were way too oily. My steak wasn’t coo Jed to the requested temperature and the side was like mush. Def not going to visit this establishment again.

    It was the end of a long work day. We had the option to eat at the hotel restaurant or head to Kahlo, where we’ve enjoyed the food and drinks in the past. This visit was even better, because we got to meet Chris with the pearl earring. He made our night so memorable! He was kind, caring, fun, knowledgeable, attentive and generous with his time. He had several tables plus was attending the bar, but never skipped a beat. We’ll come back because of him and his incredible energy and spirit! He’s a huge asset to Kahlo and hope you celebrate him. So glad we chose to join you at Kahlo tonight! We will definitely recommend to all our colleagues and friends that work and live nearby.

    Finally had a chance to try this spot in my neighborhood. The atmosphere is beautiful. I really enjoyed the decor. Even the hostess was dressed to compliment the theme, which was pretty adorable. We started with the pumpkin/goat cheese guac, which was the star of the night. Perfectly seasoned and served with equally impressive house made chips. The aguachile appetizer was also amazing: tart, fresh, and flavorful! Side note: Whomever outfitted Kahlo with plates and glassware did an excellent job. Even down to the shot glasses, not a single plate, bowl, or cocktail glass went without comment. Our waiter recommended the mezcal/ginger cocktail, which I really loved. I can’t remember the name of it. Served in an elegant coupe glass with a candied ginger garnish, it was third from the top on their cocktail menu. I’m not even a mezcal gal, but it was sweet and smoky and I happily ordered another. A bit of a lag with the delivery of our entrees, which I can only assume were left too long in the window, as both our shrimp tacos and the sea bass were overcooked and cold. My bf and I were starving, so we powered through as much as we could. I eventually spoke with a gracious manager (Francesco?) who kindly refunded us for the tacos. I didn’t mention the sea bass because it came with this delicious sweet purée that made it palatable. Honestly I would drink that purée. Chalking it up to an honest oversight. The staff was very kind and apologetic about the state of our entree (thank you for the cocktail!) and I feel that there was enough good - again, apps and drink were 10/10 - to give Kahlo another go. Happy to have this colorful gem of an eatery in HY!

    Wonderful food and incredible service! Honestly we had a little bit of a rough start to the night , one friend was late and that clearly bothered our waitress. Her service was less then kind and as it was my friends birthday I couldn’t let the situation continue. So I polite went up to the manager and explained the situation and he immediately took action. Christoper become our server for the rest of our meal and the manager continued to check on our table. It was truly an incredible experience and as a fellow person in the industry I greatly appreciated how our night turned out. Thank you!

    I love this spot, well priced considering the quality of ingredientes they served (and seeing how everything is up) “Bonito” cocktail it is must try! tequila based with lemon grass and jalapeño, if you love wine they serve Mexican Wines that will wow you we order a bottle of Cab that it was very unique, the guac with goat cheese was very good! my partner had the lobster tacos and he still talking about it, I had the steak and it was one of the best I had, the purée of avocado and tarragon really pared, I wish I remember name of the server, couldn’t be more attentive and caring same the hostess, we were a bit late and she was very gracious and accommodating, (beautifully dressed to match the location) and the ambience!!! It felt like a hot spot in Hudson Yards. Can’t wait to be back!!! good job to everyone there.

    Kahlo for the second year in a row was incredible. Our annual trip to Hudson Yards was concluded with a great dinner at Kahlo. The mango guacamole was fantastic. Good wine selection. Our arrecherà steak was absolutely unbelievable. Great marinade, cooked to perfection. Absolutely will return next time we are in the area. Topped it all off with a Tres Leche cake which was excellent. Great experience and our wait staff was great as well. Friendly, kind and very responsive. Try this place out!

    Stick to the cocktail list keeping in mind everything is mezcal/tequila based. Not a lot of variety of cocktails outside of that although they are a full bar. Wine list was terrible and they didn’t have a lot of wines or spirits in stock. Food was okay but nothing mind blowing. Decor inside was really pretty. Staff and service was great. Food was subpar. Would not come back or recommend to a friend as a dinner spot.

    I was excited to go to this restaurant because it had a good experience before. This time I took my fiancé. The waiter forgot a drink so I had to order it again. The food took a very long time and my order was not complete. I ordered the steak and eggs and never got the eggs. I’m not sure I’ll go back.

    STELLAR! Over the top experience for fathers day! First things first. I was hesitant before coming because father's days/mother's day r always hectic, but boy was our experience the smoothest. Our waiter Christopher was the sweetest and phenomenal, we were hoping "just to have dinner" and ended up having a beautiful experience, he welcomed us with the story of Kahlo (which should be on the website). The restaurant founders started the restaurant based on La Casa de Coyoacan, Which was Frida's and Diegos house. And he also told us his grandparents story from Guadalajara, we absolutely love the warmth of the mexican people, so much heart. The restaurant vibes reminded us of CAVITA, one of my fa v mexican restaurant in London. Beautiful (the dining room is gorgeous). Make sure you make your reservation early so you can walk after and enjoy the sunset @ the highline The portions are small so make sure you get some appetizers before, and go for the fuego chang drink. They dont have flan but the wedding cake is very good. When you leave they all wave goodbye to you and there's a mini Frida museum on your way out. Gracias Kahlo
