I would consider Xicohtencatl gourmet mexican. The menu was a little higher than a typical establishment but it was worth it. Good service too! Rated it a 4 cuz of the prices.

I've eaten here almost every visit to the Berkshires. We sit outside on the porch, they have an extensive selection of margaritas--the chips and salsa are great. The service is fast. I highly recommend for great Mexican food.

We have eaten here several times, and each time enjoyed it immensely. Last night on our way to the Mahaiwe, we stopped around 5:30, just a little before the dinner rush hour. We were able to sit on the front porch and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The meal was excellent and the service quick and friendly. The pace picked up... More

I've eaten food all over Mexico, and I have to say this was one of the blandest "Mexican" meals I've had. The mole was two dimensional, probably the worst I've had, but what really got me was the super small portions and $14 guacamole. Really?? And when we asked for sour cream on the side, they gave us about a... More

We ate at Xicohtencatl on fourth of July weekend. So you know it was busy, but we had no trouble getting a reservation (for six) at a reasonable time and we were seated promptly and didn't have to wait terribly long for our food. Everyone at the table enjoyed the dishes they ordered. Lots of beer choices and the mixed... More

We've eaten here twice. Good strong drinks. Their black bean soup is amazing and has inspired me to make my own (not nearly as good as theirs). The portions and prices were good. Next time in the area, we'll go back!

We had an excellent dinner here! The service was fabulous as our water glasses were never empty! We all started with margaritas and enjoyed the chips with the fresh salsa. Our dinners came out in an appropriate amount of time as we had just finished with the chips and salsa. We all enjoyed our entrees and felt that the servings... More

My husband and I went here for dinner one night a few weeks ago. The weather was great, so we sat on the porch. We found the service that evening to be spotty and slow, and the descriptions on the menu were not quite accurate. My husband's burrito "with avocado" came with a slice or two of it on top.... More

My friend and I both ordered embuletos and we were both very happy! Three tortillas stuffed with shredded chicken and onions, topped with mole poblano and goat cheese. The mole poblano was a sauce made from chocolate, chiles and almonds. Just an amazing taste. Deserts were fried ice cream and Pastel Tres Lechos, which is a delicious cake made with... More

Dinner started with Margarita's. We had the house one and they seemed to have very little alcohol or taste. The guacamole was tasty but the meat fajitas had very little meat and only came with two wraps anyway. I guess two wraps were adequate to cover the small portion so I should n't complain. The price of $20 at a... More
