Server spent too much time talking to the bartender to worry about what we needed. Also when I told him our glass was dirty, he went up to the bar, wiped it off and brought it back - when there were many clean glasses at tables around us. We will not be back

Dinner was amazing, from their friendly host outside the restaurant, to the different areas you can sit, to the great servers, and tasty food! We had a 6pm reservation, and the hosts were outside greeting people and checking their vaccinations before seating them. They have a really pretty front section that's covered and heated, but it was full, so we accepted the inside table. Dinner was salmon and lamb, both dishes were very nicely spiced and flavorful. The tequila selection is second to none. And we enjoyed a piece of tres leches cake that was prepared in a nice but simple fashion. Really enjoyed our visit, and will return!!

Gave an honest review and received no apology just a very RUDE email response from the restaurant calling me unable to follow directions. This place is overpriced and my meal was a true disappointment. Luckily they are located in a tourist area so they don’t have to rely much on repeat business. Save your money and frustration and go somewhere, ANYWHERE else. Street food is FAR BETTER!!!! RUDE MANAGEMENT!!!!!

Hola With so few two star reviews, it's disappointing to see one where so many others loved their experience. The chicken fajita is a best seller. Our queso is made with four cheeses and cream, there is no powder, our menu made from scratch. Many people come to enjoy our drinks, it appears you need a double? Our ladies rooms easy to see. We're sorry you didn't comprehend directions. We appreciate you wasting your money, but please do not blame others for your frustrations. Gracias, Tito

We had 8 pm tickets to a Broadway show—with 7 year old twins and a 13 year old boy. There are not a ton of options in the area for a meal that is not either a chain that we could have at home, or an over-the-top fine dining experience that would be lost on our kids. This was a great fit for our family. The food was not to die for deliciousness, but it was good, served hot, with a smile. The ambiance was cool and we left happy and on time for our show!

We attended the Saturday drag brunch and it exceeded all our expectations. The food was excellent - I had the huevos rancheros and my companion had the sope Benedict. The drag performances by Sky Walker and Jax were incredibly energetic and fun, and unlike some drag shows, they were very warm and generous rather than insulting. I was taking my friend for his birthday and he said it was his best birthday ever!

Tito Murphy’s was an amazing find in Chelsea! Nestled among a row of other restaurants, it’s hard to spot from the street. Inside it’s extremely warm with friendly and welcoming staff, a great music selection, and delicious food. It was the perfect blend of authentic cuisine with an upscale city twist. My son is a harsh critic and he said their quesadillas are the best!

The taste of the food was really poor. My chicken tacos had bones in them and a bad flavor. The taco salad was also not good. I would classify this as a restaurant trying to do Tex mex and not doing it well. Nothing near authentic.

Hola Chris, While so many other guests loved their Tito's experience last night, we're disappointed to hear you didn't. Chicken is pulled fresh daily to make Chicken Tinga, we wish you would have let us know there was a bone, we would have gladly corrected the issue for you. We unfortunately do not try to do Tex Mex, we're sorry for any confusion, we do offer a plain chicken tinga, and a "taco salad" for those who aren't as advernterous to try authentic Mexican Cuisine.

The service was excellent in every way. Unfortunately, the food was not hot when served. In a shellfish dish, one of the mussels was unopened, an unsafe condition, and this should have been noticed and removed by someone before the dish was served. While the hosts outside the restaurant were careful about checking vaccine cards and ID's before we were permitted to enter, we were disturbed to see that several servers inside the restaurant were not wearing masks, or wearing them improperly (eg, around their necks!). We are fortunate in NYC to be able to eat indoors once again because of vaccine and mask mandates, but not if restaurant employees do not adhere to these requirements. The restaurant is well located and they did get us out in time for our curtain without making us feel rushed - in every way, the service could not have been better.

Our server spilled an entire glass of wine on my daughter. It went all over her lap and down her purse. Someone just threw a bunch of napkins on our table and walked away. We were not given a rag to clean up and no one made sure she was able to clean up. She left with wet pants, stained purse and smelling like alcohol. We were not comped a drink or even given an apology. It was unacceptable that a manager did not make sure she was able to clean it up. I did tell the hostess at the door as we were leaving what happened.
Despite that, the food and margaritas were good.

It seemed that one of the ladies you were with, along with another younger woman were embarrassed, so I didn't want to press the issue, but I asked if I could bring anything, or help, the issue appeared resolved.

When our outdoor reservation was unable to be fulfilled outside, the owner jumped in to accommodate our party since my daughter is too young to be vaccinated.
