This was our first time trying this place- as we walked in there was a man puking outside..then as we were eating our appetizer 3 women couldn’t stand up and one began puking behind us! Horrible atmosphere- food was great but we were so turned off by the puking that we would never go back

Be careful when paying your bill. It felt like my waiter was looking over my shoulder at the tip I was going to put into the card machine. Also, 25% was the option all the way to the left (i.e. where the lower number usually is) so I hit that by accident b/c I felt so uncomfortable and kinda freaked. I would have only given 18% for service that was fine, but not great.

The food was good and beautifully presented but could have been hotter (in temperature, not spice). But we were there on a Friday night and the noise level was off the charts. If you're looking for a place to have a conversation over dinner, this isn't it.

Taco Tuesday is a great way to enjoy their tacos for a great price in a usually expensive part of town in NYC. Great drinks, food, and service from host and server. Can't ask for more!

Vida Verde was a fun, energetic environment - even on a Monday night. Margarita Monday was lots of fun and the 'ritas were wonderful. The menu was small, but everything we ordered was wonderful. I highly recommend Vida Verde!

Great food, noisy atmosphere. We enjoyed the food and our waiter was very accommodating. However, when we asked the seating hostess to sit us at one of the other empty tables, she said they were reserved ( obviously, so was ours). We told her we had to leave by 7, so we would be gone within the hour, but she said they were taken. When we left at 7, they were still empty. Noisy, crowded, because it was happy hour, but food was really good, from the guacamole, to the tacos, to the churros for dessert.

The food is decent and the brunch special is worth it at $45 per person. Our service could have been better. The waiter took longer than expected between drinks. Then at the end we were rushed out when a larger party was there before us and still sitting when we left.

Food, drinks, ambiance were great. Service was subpar.
Hostess had an extremely unpleasant demeanor.
Expected us to leave the table in 90 mins after we specifically told her we weren’t gonna do the bottomless brunch. Server was doing the exact same thing while we still had food on the table. Busser was also trying to clean plates while we were still eating
Good thing one of the manager saved the day. (I forgot her name)
But still.. experience was ruined.

Really fun place, cool atmosphere. It is a bit pricey, but the food and drinks are great. Only compliant was the pitcher of sangria was super small, not worth the price. It ends up costing almost the same as a regular cocktail so I think it's better to just order that. But delicious tacos and guac!

I came in for a birthday dinner with a group of 9 friends - we were seated at an awkward high top table by the entrance, would propose the staff to seat a large party like that in a more intimate space next time. Additionally, ordering drinks took much longer than it should have. Otherwise, the food and drinks were good but service could be more attentive.
