Food was incredible, service was great, drinks were tasty! They made my mom’s birthday celebration very special and even brought over a round of tequila shots on the house. The margaritas were quite expensive though.

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.

I’ve been coming to kahlo often and the tuna tostadas are to die for! The kahlo & Rivera guac is unreal! And the two main dishes which is our go to is the Mole de Pollo campestre and Arrachera steak. Our experience is always a pleasure and the servers are very professional. We do miss we believe was a manager/owner was a lady that was a familiar face to kahlo and has been there for quite a while she just set the mood in kahlo with full professionalism and desire to strive in the industry. She doesn’t seem to be there anymore.

We had a wonderful meal, great cocktails to celebrate my husband’s birthday. For starters had the aguachile and molotes. The aguachile was one of the best we’ve had anywhere - tuna was so fresh and chiles and lime was well-balanced. Cochinita pibil tacos were terrific but would have liked a little bit more pickled onion, branzino main had a delish and complex sauce which we scooped up with a side of fresh tortillas. Tres leches cake for dessert was creamy but not too sweet. Can’t wait to go back !

Quite expensive, even for the neighborhood. Portions were very small. Food was tasty and drinks were good (although nothing so special as to warrant $19 price tag). Service was pleasant.

Everything from the live music and decor to the food and service was amazing. Our server Acri was amazing. He made us so comfortable on our first visit there. We first had the Kahlo & Rivera Guacamole, the Lobster Coctel. We then ordered Shrimp,Cochinita Pibil Tacos and Mole de Pollo. Everything was flavorful, well presented and filling.

I loved it and will be back.

To my suprise, a half of the waiters and waitresses didn’t wear masks.
Service was OK, and the food is OK Which is a little smaller portions.
We ordered 3 bottles of beer, and first 2 came as full glasses with the bottle with some leftover in the bottles.
The last one was just a full grass and no bottle, however, and it was not a draft beer!
Where was the rest of the beer?

LOVED this place and will definitely be back. The food was incredible as well as the service and ambiance. I’ve been telling everyone about it and can’t wait to go back!!! Omg.

We got the guacamole with the mango in it, empanada trio, shrimp tacos, veggie rice and spicy margaritas. The place wasn’t packed, but I was ok with that because #Delta.

They have a neon sign in the back by the beautiful restrooms. This place is just so well done.

...did I mention I can’t wait to go back?

I have never experienced Kahlo's exact approach to Mexican fare. The heightening of all of the flavors that already exist in the cuisine is nothing short of magical. Not one thing on the table was not hand-made. The tortillas, guacamole, and all other usual items found in a Mexican restaurant are just pushed to a new level. The décor is chic and comfortable all at once, which is no small feat either. I would say that this place is not to be missed if you're in Chelsea or anywhere on the lower West side of Manhattan. You will not be let down. Also, great cocktails, and even some mocktails.

Very much enjoyed our experience. Food was delicious. Very light, yet very tasty. My partner ordered the steak and I ordered the chicken with mole sauce. Loved the mole sauce. We also enjoyed the ambiance and intimacy of the restaurant. Looking forward to returning soon.

The food was DELICIOUS!!!! Look forward to coming back again. The person who took our order seemed very rushed and impatient. The person who delivered the four was VERY informed and helpful. The music was SO loud we could barely hear each other talk. The decor was great too.

We found this place through restaurant week. Lovely place and great food. Just wish the wait staff was a bit more attentive towards us. We requested a few things that were never given to us and it almost felt like they were paying more attention to the tables around us. Maybe it’s because they feel restaurant week goers are giving the business less money?

I called the restaurant 4 times to confirm they had the Restaurant Week menu available. They ignored my calls so I decided to walk down the street where the hostess reassured me that the Restaurant Week menu would indeed be available. That proved to be a lie and the server was unapologetic whatsoever.

Tuesday night birthday celebration and was delighted to find that Kahlo had live music for dinner. Most of the patrons were there for happy hour, so paired with the music made for a very festive event.

The food and drinks were terrific and we appreciated all the staff attentiveness.
