    Nice place. It's pretty small so there wasn't much seating. We had to wait 30 minutes for a table and when several were available, it seems like they forgot about us. We waited and had drinks at the bar so it is what it is. Once we finally got a table, we enjoyed the food and the service was lovely.

    So my first impression of the place is that it is not very special and I've been to other cantina's that seemed more fancy or upscale. Once we got inside, we were greeted by a host (I presume). Who led us to the bar, although we reserved a table for two inside. When, I asked him about the table that was right in front of us and empty he stated that was reserved for someone else. Well, we ended up sitting at the bar. The bartender gives us the regular menu and not the one meant for restaurant week. We look at it confused and then when he came back, I explained that I saw a different menu for restaurant week so he brings that one. He made sure to get a paper and a pen to take down our order. We ordered the same items but different deserts. We got complimentary nachos, in addition to the ones we ordered. That was nice but those nachos weren't as good as the ones we ordered as the actual appetizer. The entrée we ordered was the red snapper, which looked appetizing. Though, it wasn't seasoned well and the sauce (chimichurri, I think) on the side with the two pieces of avocado was not enough for the piece of fish. I felt like the corn, avocado and sauce were just there as a decoration but were missing something to tie them in together as a dish. When it came time for deserts, we got an extra tres leches cake although. We thought we had a choice to get either the mangonada or tres leches. The bartender stated that we get the cake anyway but looking at the menu it clearly says "OR" I don't have a problem with the extra desert per say, but I am pretty sure they ended up charging for an extra desert. Besides that, the mangonada was delicious. I don't like tres leches so I didn't try it but my date said it was okay. Overall, the food is okay, and the atmosphere is chill. In my opinion, the menu items are over priced so I wouldn't order food here on a regular day but I might come back to try the drinks everyone around us was having.

    Visited this restaurant on a Saturday night, right before a Nets game. Service was prompt and the service people were very accommodating, despite it being so busy. The food was great, appetizers were generous, but actual entree could've been a bit better. Overall, great experience and I would visit again!

    Felt a bit rush when I was there, they wanted us to order our drinks and food immediately, I do understand it’s Saturday night. However, it was our first time there. For the most part, the food was great. The al pastor nachos were my top favorite, the birria de res and steak tacos were tasteful. The cactus pear drink was great, the Santa sangre was too spicy for me, but if you like spicy that’s your go to drink. Overall, everything was good, our waiter Sam was such an attentive and sweet individual. I will be returning.

    Small, basically bar-type space. However, the food was terrific! Great nachos to share as a starter. Then, excellent, delicious tacos. We had dinner right before the Nets game (the Barclay's Center is just across the street). Great choice for a pre-game meal or drinks.

    Simply put, it was a great place based on food and service. Our 8 year old was with us and is a picky eater. Waiter was attentive to his request and the kids food was delivered as ordered. Shrimp BLT Taco’s were amazing.

    I think I had the best fried chicken sandwich I’ve ever had here! Of course on the menu it’s described as a Milanese. Everything we ordered here was great. The beef bone marrow tacos were delicious, finished with a tres leches cake. The interior ambience isn’t anything out of the ordinary but didn’t expect it to be. Would love to come back here.

    Tiny's Cantina is the best addition to this area - you cannot miss out on the chicken sandwich or the bone marrow tacos. The pollo quesadilla is also AMAZING. Highly recommend for those random weekends and weeknights where you are looking for a fun change of pace.

    The food was fantastic and the service was great. Only disappointing factor was there were no deals for Cinco de Mayo.
