What you need to know about us is creating a good dining experience is personal to us. There are lots of good restaurant choices in New York.
It is a mecca for all types of food. We separate Margarita’s Cafe from the rest of the pack because of our attention to detail.
From the opening of our first restaurant, we worked to create an atmosphere that takes you away from the mundane.
We have spared no expense in acquiring one of a kind decor to surround our customers as they dine.
Every choice of silverware, item on the menu or drinks we create are designed to give our customers the illusion of dining while on vacation.
The only thing missing is the warm summer breezes & ocean waves.

    Over all just ok . Food and menu description needs some work. Service was very good … Henry is very personable and attentive server BBQ wings for appetizer taste old maybe made few days ago and now warmed up and served. Skin was saggy and chewy I hope they were not microwaved. Fried stuffed jalapeños were great too bad it was a small order. Fajita that I ordered unfortunately didn’t come in the sizzling hot platter . I did come on sizzling hot plater on the table behind me which shows you how inconsistent places is . the kids meal needs a better description chicken with garlic butter and rice basically look like risotto with pieces of chicken tomato sauce and some vegetables and presentation was horrendous unfortunately look like a cheap staff meal. We also ordered corn tortilla that never arrived but was left on the bill . I noticed afterwards but we are already on our way home Place in the end is not very cheap still spend over 220 bucks ( with out a tip ) for basically two main courses kids meal 4 appetizers and 4 tequilas But for more positive note desserts were phenomenal flan and tres leches cake A Plus . I will give it one more try someday. Also would be a good idea for you guys to have Owner or Manager walk around once in a while and check on all the customers just to make sure they happy .

    Food was good, tables too close, the music/band was way too loud for a small space. It was annoying, you couldn’t converse with your party. Not sure I would go back on a weekend where there is live music.

    We frequented this restaurant for years after they opened. The food until 2/3 years ago was fairly good. But now, sorry to say it was terrible. The Margaritas were awful too. What’s happened????? Too bad!!!!! People are nice. Service was good.

    We recently discovered Margueritas and have been here a couple of times now in the last few weeks. The service is excellent, everyone is really friendly even if they aren’t your server. They give good portions, if you order guacamole they make it fresh at your table. It’s delicious. Everyone was happy with there good. Mostly got fajitas. The steak quesadilla was really good too. My husband got the jambalaya & really enjoyed it. Prices aren’t bad either. We are becoming regulars here.

    Been meaning to try this place since they opened. Great food, sizzling hot and nicely portioned, wonderful servers. A 5:30 reservation yielded us about 45 minutes of attention by staff. 6:15, the dinner rush seemed to create a backlog; waited for a while for our dessert order to be taken, and again for checkout. 3 appys, 3 dinners, and one refreshing adult beverage ran us $166 including the tip. Current events preclude making Margarita's our go-to Mexi-Spanish-Latin place, but we'd love to return for a business function, special occasion, or to host out-of-town family and friends. Overall, we're rating Margarita's as a North Shore gem!

    There are a lot of staff. I guess they have servers and waitresses etc. but once we sat down we had to wait about 15 minutes for anybody to get us a drink. Water came right away chips came right away. But it was a little odd we had to wait for a drink.

    My husband and I both love Margarita's cafe. And we love one step ahead the band.. Last night was the 1st time I can remember our food not being up to par. We got a combination plate that had ribs chicken, steak, shrimp and chorizo and everything was overdone. We should have probably told them and had them take it back . That's on us.But one experience out of many fabulous experiences. Drinks were great and music. What a vibe the band brings. I don't usually dance in restaurants with no dance floor but there were many of us up dancing. In summary great place generally great food great drinks great service.

    I have been to Margaritas café many many times. I love the food and I love the Service. The only disappointment last night was I asked to sit in one of the side booths and they told me those were for four people and we were a party of 2. I don’t usually like to sit in the middle of a restaurant. After we sat two other parties came in that were parties of 2 and they were seated in those booths. Many of those booths were available throughout the time we were there and when we left.

    We were on time for our reservations, but our two friends ran a little late. The manager was sweet as can be and regained alot of respect because our dinner did not come out till 1.5 later after we had ordered not to mention the app & soup came out late too. We did share our app because me and the other party of our gather are push 35+ weeks pregnant. Drinks were amazing (as our hunnys said) and food amazing once received. Been here once prior - & enjoyed it too but this time I was left with a question if we will return. I love the food and so does my baby & hubby! Hope that the staff stays up to par on training with the kitchen.

    We have been to this restaurant before and enjoyed it very much. However, this visit was disappointing. We waited for a very long time to get our meal, another long wait to get a check and we finally got up and paid our bill at the desk. Also, the music was noisy and way too "energetic" for a quiet Sunday evening meal. The special dinner my husband ordered was $45!! and was not very good but I enjoyed my tilapia very much. I will not give up on this venue but I am not sure I will ever get my husband to visit there again.

    We arrived and our (2) people were missing. No sooner we sat down we felt pushed to order an appetizer. So we did. Then before we even finished our appetizer we were pushed to order our entree which came with seconds of finishing our appetizer our entree was delivered. Very very rushed. Food was ok. The best thing about it was the band who were very authentic, and the decorations. Otherwise, spent over $300.00 for so so food and very rushed.

    Fantastic! Margaritas were definitely the best I’ve ever had. Also had a Mexican alcohol infused coffee drink that was incredibly good. I got a seafood entree and my partner got a steak entree. Both excellent. The live music was fantastic. Most tables, including us, we jiving to the music in our streets. And don’t forget dessert! The ice cream was incredibly good as well. It was loud with the music but definitely worth it.
