We were celebrating getting Covid-19 vaccinations! And this was the first time getting back to NYC after 13 months. Love Tacuba and Toloache. Food is not like typical Mexican restaurant food.

Service was very slow...we had to flag down the waitress to remind her after 15 mins we were still waiting to order our drinks and to bring us water. Food was just ok. Their side of street corn was not great...Tacuba in Astoria is definitely better. Don’t think we’ll be dining here again.

The hostess, Rebecca was a delight. Her recommendations turned out to be delicious. Guacamole and drinks were great, making this a go to for after work. The Carne Asada entree was exceptional. Entire stuff was very friendly and great service. Can’t wait to go back.

Our favorite place for a warm socially distanced outdoor meal. Okay so we are regulars, but with good reason, everything is great! We are now seeing other "regulars" and talking with them, making new friends, just like our "old life" Thanks Tacuba.:)

As we venture back to eating in restaurants as the pandemic wanes, one of the first we chose to return to was Tacuba. The food from this Mexican eatery was excellent, good portion size for the entrees, and delicious mixed drinks. They have a variety of tacos, though not the full menu at the moment, and had a special menu for Valentine's Day. They offer outdoor seating, though we chose indoors where the tables were spaced out with partitions between them. The staff were attentive and friendly, without being on top of you. We were glad to support this restaurant and will continue to return.

Tacuba is great. The food is delicious, the margs are amazing and strong and such a good deal for the pitcher! Such a cute date spot as well. They have very safe covid protocols and it's nice you can sit inside or outside. Love this place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our covid-safe private cabana and the fact they asked you to keep your masks on while ordering, etc. It actually got so some in the cabana that we all took off our coats. Food and drink was good too, and they sent us off with a round of tequila shots to keep us warm on the trip home.

I made reservations on a Tuesday night and I couldn't have been more pleased. It's winter and freezing and I was concerned we may just be sitting outside under a heat lamp but this restaruant has built outdoor private rooms with heating for their patrons. It was such a nice intimate experience. The food was delicious, we started with the guacomole and I ordered the pescado tacos which could have used a pinch of salt to bring out the flavors but it was tasty. I also ordered a mango frozen margarita which was amazing! I would definitely recommend this place!
