The food was pretty good, but the drinks were not. I was expecting great drinks and tried almost everything off the menu in hopes to find at least one but no luck.
We loved the shrimp tacos and guacamole. The ceviche wasn’t great. The cost of food was very good but drinks are pricey. We had a great time. Our server was fantastic!
The food is subpar and overpriced. A cool restaurant but there are others in the area that have better food and similar vibes
Super fun place for 22nd birthday! Can’t think of a negative thing to say!
Came here for dinner with a friend during our visit to New York. The vibe was a little quiet when we first walked in but throughout the meal more and more groups started coming in. We ordered a few things to share and really enjoyed the fish taco and the corn. Great place for dinner before a night out!
Thank you for the great review. Look forward to seeing you next time you are in the city!
Great food but not enough for the price. It was too pricey for the amount of food. $12 for ONLY 2 TACOS? SMH 🤦🏾♂️
The food was delicious and the ambiance was fantastic
Food was amazing! Loved the decor. Would definitely recommend!
small tapas not very filling for the price
Had a delicious meal! Loved the atmosphere and the food. Would definitely go back.
Thank you for celebrating with us. Look forward to having you back in soon for 2020.
Street corn was excellent as was the playlist
Super fun ambiance. Perfect place to go to celebrate an event or with a large group. Not cheap but definitely not over the top for what you get. You are paying for a great atmosphere. Food was pretty good too! definitely will be back.
Great trendy Mexican setting
Came here for my sister’s birthday. We had so much fun! Loved the drinks and the DJ. The entree’s are very very small but tasty.
Decent food, great atmosphere. Convenient to pop downstairs to the bar afterwards
Thanks Dee! Look forward to seeing you out again soon.
The gentlemen greeting guest this evening was extremely rude. It was like we were bothering him. I believe he was the manager on the floor that evening.
I was disappointed from the beginning.
Prix Fixe is not at all valuable. They bring tiny skewers. Disappointed and its not unlimited.
Salad was not good. Guac was stale. We loved the skewers but were upset with the size and had to order extra for which we paid 20 bucks and got the same small ones. The corn Tacos are what I would recommend 100%.
TERRIBLE SERVICE. they pushed us out the door an hour after we sat as a party of 7 with a reservation
Great for large groups- ask for the picnic tables!
It was a fun (at times very loud) atmosphere. Food was good, service very good. We took our time and never felt rushed. Only complaint was that it was extremely hot...not sure if the a/c wasn’t working, but it got uncomfortable especially when the restaurant was filled. I would definitely go back again.
I’ve been a few times and noticed the guacamole wasn’t as good as usual, I wish they had spicier hot sauces and the ceviche wasn’t as good as other times. Fish tacos were great as was the duck empanadas
This was my second trip there in a month and it was great. The happy hour is awesome and the drinks are great
Thanks Janny for the great review! Looking forward to having you in again soon!
Great ambience and music. Food was ok. Good duck wings.
They sat us in the basement when other tables were open upstairs. We requested to sit upstairs and they still stick us in the basement.
Sorry to hear you were unhappy with the location of your table for dinner service. Depending on the size of the group and the reservations for the evening we sometimes have to make adjustments during the course of service. We certainly make our best efforts to accommodate everyones preferences as much as possible. I certainly hope you will give us another opportunity to win you back. Feel free to contact me directly for your next reservation. Gabriel Solano General Manager @tijuanapicnicnyc
An excellent place off the beaten path. We did not have entrees but tacos are to die for. Surprisingly amazing mushroom tacos. The rest of the selections are awesome as well. Will be back.
TP was fun- tacos were excellent, especially the pork belly!
Terrible service, mediocre food, very trashy clientele. Been in NYC for 10 years and this was one of the worst dining experiences.
great food, go on Taco Tuesdays. and great ambiance - had a fun DJ playing 2000s hiphop
Thank you Jay!!! Looking forward to see you here again any day of the week. Always a great night at Tijuana Picnic.
Tacos are the best here!
Also love the DJ for dinner hours
We were celebrating my friends 30th birthday and enjoyed a great setting with incredibly tasty cocktails, and food. All in all a great night until we ended our evening with a drink downstairs and the bartender threatened my friend as she received the check to not serve her if she didn’t leave him a tip. Very uncalled for and aggressive behaviour which ruined an otherwise lovely evening.
Went for mothers day table of 5. Was great service, great selection of food (brunch is all day on Sunday but they close at 6 just FYI), had pitcher of some strawberry margarita that had complex ingredients and tasted great. Just like their food, was authentic Mexican flavors and put together thoughtfully everything was delicious and great filling proportions! Adorable cool unique decor and music, great vibe, great people! Great seating as well roomy booths and tables. Highly recommend going for any occasion.
Could not find our reservation and gave us a hard time before seating us
Our server was really nice and attentive. He checked on us throughout the meal without being annoying. Appreciate that he warned my friend that the hot sauce is really hot.
I liked the music choice: some Michael Jackson, some 80s euro pop. Loud enough to hear but not too loud that you're screaming at your friend to have a conversation.
This is the only Mexican restaurant that I would recommend. I don't typically like Mexican food but I do like their take on it.
Thank you kindly for the fantastic review! Look forward to having you join us again soon!
Food and margaritas were amazing. It was my friend's birthday and they did a great job with the birthday surprise. And the bar scene after was so cool!
We shared the taco platter and street corn- and they did not disappoint! Loved the mushroom tacos!
The food was great and so was the ambiance. It definitely got very noisy towards the end and the waitress was horrible because the tip was already included so she was very unhelpful. Besides her everything else was great.
