    Pork shank was not tender in most places but cleverly hidden by mole. Service was impeccable, but the guacamole was underwhelming. Honestly believe there is better value and food very, very close by.

    First place in Manhattan that we actually felt like we were in Mexico! The flavors are so good, I couldn’t believe they are pulling this off in Manhattan.

    Drinks and appetizers were awesome! The tacos were not as good as we expected. Noise level was high, we had to be really loud to hear each other. Service was great though and quick!

    It is a bit too noisy...Not a place to have an extended conversation. Our waiter this particular evening did not really seem to care about us. He seemed to have decided that if there were a pause in the ordering, for instance of drinks, then everyone had spoken, even if the next person was just thinking a bit longer. The waiter would immediately leave the table, rather than asking the person not ordering if that person would like something as well. And so the evening proceeded, with this brusque treatment continuing.

    decent experience overall, but no WOW factor. Drinks were ok. Food was ok. Fresh ingredients was the best observation I got. Deserts list is underwhelming.

    The food is authentic and very well prepared. It's nice to have such good food in a casual atmosphere with attentive service and reasonable prices. And Casa Carmen is located in my neighborhood. I walked there and I walked back. I will definitely come back with more family and friends.

    We absolutely loved everything about Casa Carmen. The restaurant itself is so inviting, the interior is amazing, the service was exceptional. So friendly and on top of things. We felt very welcomed. And now I am turning to the best part. The food. Holy moly, everything was fantastic. Every single bite was an explosion of flavor. My absolute favorite was the Esquites, but everything from the guacamole, drinks, tacos and dessert was mind-blowing. We already have made another reservation and we can’t wait to try more deliciousness.

    AMAZING experience. We went for a birthday with a group of 6. The staff was very accommodating, especially with allowing us to bring our own cake and not charging a fee. They were warm and welcoming all around. The place itself is STUNNING, i would move in if it wasn't a restaurant lol. All around great vibe. Our waiter was fabulous and the service was incredibly attentive. Now to the food.....OUTSTANDING! Every flavor was perfectly balanced, classic but inventive. As we shared our plates we watched each other's facial expressions change with each bite, knowing exactly what gastronomic pleasure they were experiencing because when something is that good, you want to share.

    Cute spot and has potential- prices are crazy for the food and quality they provide. It’s just not worth it at the end of the meal and you walk away wondering why you spent $120 pp. good design and aesthetic but misses the mark.

    Overall an average experience. Bill came to about $100 per person (with drinks) which is not a surprise anymore in NYC but along the way…. 1. service was ok: the hostess was impatient with the order, whenever we’d confirm the entrees with the other, she would keep asking ‘anything else’ repeatedly. One of the servers tried to take the glasses while we still had drinks in them, multiple times. He also would keep all the bottles behind my head on the counter, and clank the bottles each time he refilled and placed another one there, startling me multiple times. 2. One of the entrees had a hair in it, when we mentioned it the manager came over and instead of saying that the dish was a comp, he offered a desert, making sure to mention ‘one’ desert and not for the whole table. When you’re in a high end restaurant, prepared to shell out $100 pp, this type of treatment seems quite petty and cheap. They ended up giving us the same dish again. One of the glasses was cracked and one of our party cut her lip on it. Not much of an apology was given. 3. Food was average overall, Chipotle Shrimp was underwhelming, the sauce was too sweet and the smokiness of chipotle was missing. The Mole dish was better but nothing spectacular. The Tacos were also ok. Needless to say, we tried, we ate, we saw…we’re not coming back.

    Really good restaurant. Food is excellent but quite expensive for portion sizes and drinks. Chips and guac was delish except you get 4 large chips in total and they charge you for more. Well worth it just warning in advance

    Perfection start to finish. If you need a Mexican food fix- go try the steak and chicken mole. Unbelievable. We had a lot and filled the table with sides and entrees. So worth it. Cocktails & Mocktails were also remarkable. The unsalted spicy margarita stole the show. The bartender can make anything, but try their signature drinks. Most definitely our favorite neighborhood (heaven on earth) resto.
