Whoever’s in the kitchen knows what they’re doing! The Al Pastor nachos we’re are off the charts tasty. Three entrées and a tortilla soup received raves by the group. The pitchers of brunch cocktails are a great value and delicious. I highly recommend it!

Great spot but too crowded on the rooftop garden. Packed up there with people not too worried about Covid. Made me uncomfortable. Tables in the front of the restaurant and on the street lookEd like they were properly distanced. I would definitely go again but just would not go to the rooftop garden during Covid. Owner was very nice as were the servers.

Theresa, Thank You for your review. We appreciate you giving us feedback, and will work to make sure all of our guest feel comfortable moving forward. As we do take covid safety seriously, we will reevaluate the seating, and make sure we are monitoring the rooftop more frequently. Our guests should first and foremost not be "packed", not following the guidelines. Do let us know the next time you'd like to make a reservation, we will send something special to the table! Gracias, Tito

I would have given this five stars, except that the way the food was served was not my idea of a restaurant meal.. We were served our sizzling fajitas in brown boxes with plastic forks. Drinks were in plastic cups with straws. I understand the issue with dining now in New York City, but I’ve been to other restaurants where they gave you plates and real forks.

Tito Murphy's
Responded on October 2, 2020

Dear Marianne, Thank You for your four star review, We appreciate your feedback. While we know those fajitas are so much more fun on a sizzling plate, the state and CDC still recommend disposable plate, drinkware and utensils. We follow the guidelines closely, even if it costs us a bit more. We will continue to monitor changes as we start our indoor dining program. Keep an eye on our COVID preparedness checklist found on Opentable for future changes! Gracias, Tito

46th street closes down in the evenings so the outdoor dining experience was great, but a couple things could be improved:
No Menu or QR code to prompt - needed to walk and attempt to take a picture of the menu at the front
Drinks - extremely sweet and sugary - especially the Paloma and house margarita
Also comparatively, they are slightly overpriced to other Mexican spots in the area

I went there with a group of about 6 people. The food is overpriced and not that tasty. The margaritas really didn’t have alcohol in them and we’re way too sweet. They tasted like syrup. One of the margaritas tasted like straight water and after we brought that up to the waiter, he didn’t even have the decency to remove it from the bill. We ordered shots and they came out to $14. The decent thing would have been to shave a couple dollars off the cost of the shots considering the margaritas were basically virgin. Huge waste of money.

Hola Waste, Sorry you felt the food is overpriced and not tasty. We'd love to know what you had, so we can address any food concerns for all future guests. We'd like to invite you back for a complimentary experience. While our premium margaritas feature a much higher priced tequila, the $14 price should be modest for the quality of the tequila, fresh squeezed lime juice, and organic blue agave syrup. We'd love to make you a round of our al gusto margaritas on your next visit. Gracias, Tito

I live in the neighborhood but seldom dine at any of the restaurants on W 46---not exactly well-known for great food. I decided to try this place because it seemed like a pleasant outdoor ambiance. The service was very nice, but the food...OMG. Margaritas had no flavor except ice. The guacamole that tasted like salt was the main ingredient. Inedible. The chips were not as good as Fritos. The burritos that seemed to be stuffed with dog food. The fact that we're in the middle of a restaurant crisis is no excuse to serve garbage. On the contrary, restaurateurs should be striving to make us want to return and to spread the word. My words: AVOID AVOID AVOID.

I was looking for a place to eat on Restaurant Row, and am so glad that I found Tito Murphy's on Open Table. They have a great selection of tables for outdoor dining. I had the house salad with the chipotle dressing to start. It was generous in size and just delicious. I then had the shrimp burrito - which was excellent. Hearty and satisfying, without being too heavy. I then had the churros for dessert. They came with a caramel sauce and were wonderful. The service was great and the prices were most reasonable. Also the only Mexican restaurant on the street. A real find.

Made a reservation here for Friday night and it was great. Street was blocked off from cars so everyone can properly enjoy the food/restaurant outside dining experience. They sat us at a table upstairs outside overlooking the street where other people sat. There was live music the night at the restaurant across the street the night we went which definitely made the vibe amazing. Service was ok. We were there for a while mainly ordering drinks. Menus are taped to a wall due to covid which was fine - they were right near our table. Food came in to go boxes which was a little odd and we didn’t get any plates but I guess it’s a safety precaution again because of covid. Overall drinks were good and ambiance was even better. Perfect small table for a two person date. I Will be returning!
