Food and service was great ! Came after leaving Statue of Liberty on our way to World Trade Center. Highly recommend the chips and salsa and the Tortilla soup
.. was amazing and the enchiladas were great !
Excellent all around. Will be back often!
Hadn't been in years but thought I'd try it for an end-of-year work lunch for my team. Our server was nice but not very attentive. This was a mystery as the restaurant was empty. The guac was bland - lacking salt, spice, or any seasoning for that matter. Bad guac is a cardinal sin for a Mexican restaurant in NYC (especially for one as expensive as SouthWest) so a very disappointing way to start off the meal. In hindsight, I should have asked for my money back on that dish.
Fortunately the entrees were better. I had the pulled chicken tacos which were really delicious. My colleague had a shrimp fajita which he said was terrific and my other colleague had a salad which looked basic.
Aside from the guac, the food was good but at $75, the overall meal was an awful value, especially for lunch where you expect to eat for $15 person. I wouldn't go back on my own dime.
The food was excellent, and served piping hot! The staff was very good, but did bring the sweet potato fries with the appetizer after explicitly asking when it should be brought and being told to bring with the entrée. An entrée listed as being accompanied by rice came instead with faro, which has gluten. Changes like that should be disclosed. However, the positives outweighed negatives...octopus appetizer was delicious.
Always delicious and fresh when dining here. Lunch Options are perfect portion.
Our server was so nice and took all our orders! I went with a party of 4 for a co-works lunch. The food came out quickly and it was super delicious!
After seeing the Statue of Liberty, we booked a restaurant that was within walking distance of Battery Park. We had a salmon ceasar salad and the Thanksgiving dinner. Both were good, not amazing. The staff are friendly and the atmosphere is cozy. Overall, it was a nice experience.
Super noisy and food was mediocre at best. Looked like the bar was hopping and lots of large parties. If you don't care so much about food and you plan on being the noisiest people in the place -- this restaurant could be for you.
We went for brunch and found the menu much better than the standard brunch menu, although it included usual brunch options. Service was very attentive without being too much, the drinks were excellent and the food very tasty. Brunch for three, including alcohol, tax and tip was close to $100 so not a cheap meal but the food was well above the ordinary.
Nice drinks although it contained some undissolved suger. Extremely dry chicken served with Ceasar sallad. No dressing. Santa fee quesidillas rather tasteless.
Only one of our dishes was tasty: the octopus. The guacamole and chips were probably the most disappointing: the chips were horribly bland and stale, and the "guacamole" was like a big piece of avocado with no seasoning. The same for the quinoa salad.
Nice setting both inside and out in a beautiful neighborhood in Battery Park City with a friendly, attentive staff serving well prepared southwestern food at a reasonable price. I go there whenever I'm near that area.
We ran one hour late. I called and the hostess was very accommodating. Sat us right away. Servers were very good. Food was very good. Easy place to enjoy dinner with friends
Simply the best margaritas in BPC. The improvement of the food menu made the new dishes delectable as heaven.
i came here to drink during my lunch at work. sometimes you just need the liquid drug to get you through the day of having to do things you'd rather not do but still get paid for. but thats not why i came here. i came here to drink during my lunch at work with an ex-colleague and catch up.
we sat at the bar. so service was understandably quite good. we had a small plate to share and one drink apiece. working in some of the companies around that location doesn't mean you can afford to eat around that location.
but in other instances i've been there, the mussels are good to share. tacos are good but i feel are overpriced as i can usually eat about 6 of them and only get 2. i think i need to diet.
Loved it! Planned a goodbye lunch for a co-worker here and the food is just phenomenal! The service was awesome and accommodating when we asked to all me seat at one table they moved stuff around so it would work for us :) I hope to come back
Southwest always does a great job. Excellent drinks and decent food, reasonably priced and friendly service!
The pull pork quesadilla was really good and the grilled baja style fish was good. They have strawberry daiquiri!My wife loved the cotton candy for dessert. Outdoor seating in the front of the restaurant.
Great, fast and patient service. Our waiter Russell was top notch.
Great food. Great location. Great value. Slow service.
Excellent Mexican food, fast service in a great Battery Park location. Well worth many repeat visits.
Pat, the MOD on several of our visits kept things moving smoothly and checked in on us several times. She does an excellent job of managing. Each visit we found the waitstaff to be excellent, friendly, accommodating, and very helpful.
We had four separate occasions and they were profoundly tasty. The little cast iron potato pots keep the mashed potatoes perfectly hot throughout the entire meal. Excellent adult beverage choices. We have had dozens of swirls over the years.
Food was great as always. The service was also great.
Great open air spot, good food, service just ehh.
Would recommend for friends out, you can be a little loud and still enjoy.
Liked everything I ate. Shared small plate, Agua Chile de Camarón, with my son...very tasty. Fish tacos were exactly what I was hoping for and hit the spot. My son had Salmon for the second time in his life and said it was definitely better than first time around...he finished whole serving...I tried a bite and agree it had nice flavors. Wait staff worked seamlessly. Overall it was a very nice dining experience.
My son took me here for brunch on mother's Day. It was delicious! would come back.
Had the short rib tacos. The plate had 3 of the smallest tacos known to man. The meat was extremely fatty. $17 for almost no food.
The pulled pork quesadilla was very good, as were both the guacamole starters.
Food was not very good in my humble opinion. We ordered guacamole with chips, fish tacos, steak tacos , chicken tacos and quesadilla....food came out so fast it may me wonder if food was just ready before hand. Tacos had a funny taste and quesadillas were also not great. Our waitress was not very pleasant and she got one of entrees wrong.
This is a great restaurant where the locals seem to go. Not overly crowded or loud so the meal was enjoyable. They did not rush you out which is unusual for a New York restaurant on a Saturday night. If you find yourself in Battery Park or near the 9/11 memorial, take a short walk to experience this place.
Good location, very convenient for the financial district. Good food with big portions. Service level very high. To try for sure.
The food was great and so was the service. Our group was always checked on by never felt like it was too much or too little
We love the the fire place and the tranquil environment. T
The food and service were impeccable. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for lunch, dinner or drinks.
very accommodating for a large group; good attentive service
We work right across the street in the World Financial Building. We come here all the time for our team lunch for special occasions (birthdays and holidays) and we always love it. The staff is friendly and knowledgable. The food is delicous and its always good for our group of 6 people.
The chips and salsa were Delilah, but the salad and "Mexican street corn" was bland. Service was slow.
Thank you Leon for great service!
Very Friendly staff! Food was great! Has a heated outdoor dining area. Wonderful location, right down from it is the water!
