Great food, service and ambience. The outdoor seating was adorable and the inside looked beautiful. A great spot on Restaurant Row! We went pre-theater and were out in plenty of time to spare. We will be back!

Chips were stale and not good. Service could have been better had the waiter checked on us but he didn’t.

Responded a day ago

Hola Preeti, Our chips are made several times daily, we wish you would have told us you didn't like them. We have so few three star reviews, it's concerning to see one on a busy Friday when we sold so many chips and so many others loved their experience! We don't see your name in the reservation log to address with your server, do let us know which name the reservation was made under. We always appreciate feedback, and would like to review with the server who neglected you so. Gracias, Tito

Drag Brunch
Drinks margarinas sangrias are so flat feels like a water juice
Food more like an appetizer over a platter of chips and all that for $60 with 20%gratitude included

Tito Murphy's
Responded 6 days ago

Margaritas and Sangria are never carbonated . Chilaquiles are chips tossed in Salsa Rojo, with Steak and Egg, served in a bowl. $60 pays for two hours of drinking, entree, and entertainers. It's an incredible value at $60, tips are for services provided. We apologize you didn't appreciate any of it. Over one hundred guests weekly love our sold out drag brunch experience, have found it an amazing value, and exactly why we added it to Opentable. Gracias, Tito Gracias, Tito

Place is nice , food was not good at all. Stale smell from salsa and guac .

Responded on July 10, 2021

Dear Anonymous, We're disappointed to hear you didn't enjoy your guacamole. On such a busy Friday night, we have to make it several times, as it's made for the dinner hours. Was there something else you didn't enjoy, as the only thing we saw in your review was that you believed the guacamole and salsa was "stale." We strive for the freshest produce and meats for our guests, and take your feedback rather serious. With very few three star reviews, we'd certainly like to know! Gracias, Tito

The starters are good but not the main course. Service was fast. In door area is very nice but it was untidy.
Cocktail wasn’t made well either, the day before I was there with another group and it was perfect. So I guess it depends on the bartender.

My friend and I went to New York on a girls trip over the weekend. After a day full of walking, we wanted to have a nice dinner to take in the city. This was a perfect choice! The restaurant is located on restaurant row which is full of life. It is 2 floors with an outdoor patio in the back of the second floor. While it was a little hard to hear each other at times, the restaurant was full of energy making it a wonderful time. I got the fajita shrimp salad and my friend got the chicken fajitas. We both really enjoyed our meals. The waitress was nice, but busy with all the tables on the patio. I’d recommend sitting outside since the music inside was a little loud and it was also a little dark.

My fiancé and and i were able to get a 10:15 reservation .
We called to confirm kitchen hours and were told once we arrived we would have to order right away for food but drinks could continue. When we arrived we were first told that we could not order food . I had to remind them of the conversation. We ordered before we officially were seated . Everything was rushed . Food taste rush ... . Why allow us to make a reservation at 10:15 if this was the case

Responded on June 21, 2021

Hola Anonymous! Sorry for the confusion, it doesn't merit a 1 star review. The hours are clearly explained on Opentable, and we would have been more than glad to give you a much better experience had you arrived on time. Unfortunately, as we explained over the phone, the restaurant closes at 10:30pm. You showed up 15 minutes late, at closing time. As opposed to marking your reservation as a "no-show" and not seating you, the team went above and beyond to stay later and serve you. Tito

Restaurant experience was fine. We were seated outside vs. reservation request of inside, but based on volume level of music inside we decided maybe staying outside would be better. Service was fine, but at one point, server indicated another would take our table over, but then he came back - and we had 2 servers, making it a bit confusing as to who was really assigned to our table. No complaints on food, though my husband felt his drink was a bit watered down.

Hola daehad! Glad to hear you enjoyed your Titos' experience. It sounds like the servers showed great hospitality with you! Many guests love our famous hospitality and we're sorry you were confused. The server finishing always makes sure our guests know when someone takes over an area. And they still follow up to make sure you're taken care of before they leave for the day. Sundays are definitely one of our busy days, as noted by the "energetic" designation on Opentable. Gracias, Tito

Stopped by for a late night dinner. Had the Birria tacos which were awesome, the watermelon margarita, some really great authentic flautas, and flan for dessert. Service was awesome, the servers are really friendly and they take good care of you! The patio on the street is decorated really nice for being out on the street, it has these big palm trees and curtains. It's covered from the rain and they had the heat on for a chilly night, but they also have fans in there in case it gets hot.

It was a nice experience they could use more seasoning in their food both guacamole and quesadilla were quite bland. Instead of curtains for outdoor dining they should build doors to keep the area better heated. Last but not least the drinks were far too sweet and you couldn’t actually taste the alcohol. The staff thou was amazing and very friendly. Place is okay but I wouldn’t return.

Dear Anonymous, We're disappointed to see you didn't love your Tito's experience. We don't often hear that someone thought the food was bland, but we'll circle back with our chefs. The curtains outdoors are CDC and NYC Dept. of Health compliant, we used them all winter, and worked rather well for all our other guests in the months of December and January. Doors are cause for a fine, and still not approved. Did you happen to order a sweet drink? Gracias, Tito

Enjoyed our time there but thought the food was middle of the road. Chicken itself was delicious. Desserts were disappointing - we had flan and tres leches cake but neither was authentic. I didn't enjoy the guac either, although my husband liked it. I would recommend if you're meeting up with a few friends to start a fun night, have some margaritas and chips - sort of like a Mexican food version of a pub. Fun place for that. But if you're going out specifically to have a nice dinner, or as the main activity for a date, I wouldn't recommend it.

Hola Penelope! We're disappointed you didn't enjoy your dinner, but the few items you did order weren't our specialty! While we serve nachos, the more authentic antojitos, like flautas, are really yummy. We're glad you enjoyed the chicken tinga tacos, they're very simple. Try a Budin next time, the layers of crispy tortillas blend with the Poblano Creme salsa and cheese in a truly exciting dish. We will review our desserts, they are some of the most enjoyed. Gracias, Tito
