I've been to Suenos twice now, once in March for my birthday and then again a couple weeks ago. It's small but cozy and nicely decorated. The prices might be a little higher than getting a taco at a hole-in the-wall place but the food really is excellent and worth the higher price. I especially love the chilaquiles app and... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Sueños for the most part. We first shared a nice, crisp green salad, then had the quesadilla special (with salmon and a nice, fruity salsa on top) which was the highlight of our dinner. It was very flavorful and original. Our other entrée was the enchiladas platter with ranchera sauce, which was surprisingly unremarkable: the... More

In a bit of a secret location and unassuming in appearance you will find a unique foodie haven. Just outstanding men with unique and layered flavors, perfect preparations, and absolutely surprising and delicious choices. This is not your run of the mill taco and enchilada spot Our favorites; chicken chilequilles, lobster sopas, hanger steak, and amazing mole Run to Chelseas... More

I very much enjoyed the creative Mexican menu and the friendliness of the staff. The hostess Emily is a true asset to the restaurant. The wait staff were very knowledgeable and did a good job. It was a nice taste to have a fajita-making station in the corner of the place too. The food was different and creative. I will... More

You might walk right by this place, but you would be missing NYC's hidden gem & the delicious dishes prepared by Chef Sue. I've been to the restaurant several times over the last few years and every time my guests have a festive time, enjoy the cheerful atmosphere with an inside garden, the friendliest staff and the nice variety of...

I have always enjoyed my dinner at Suenos. Last night I celebrated my birthday there but was a little disappointed. Since I usually have had great food there, I will still recommend it. I was looking forward to enjoying the Prix Fixe that ends at 7 PM (630 reservation) . When we were placing our orders we were told the... More

Even though it's just off 8th Ave, it seems like a hidden gem. I've been there a handfull of times, and have had a good experience each time. The food is exceptional and, to me anyway, original. The ambience and the atmosphere is perfect for a date or just a special dinner with a friend or two. The wating staff... More

I can't talk about the food, since I won't be going here after having a bad (poor) communication experience with the staff after trying to book a reservation for a relatively large party. Initially I was told I could book for a week night and would be accomodated. After calling back to confirm a few days later, I was informed... More

We use to frequent this place and always thought the food and service was good. However with so many new restaurants always opening in Chelsea, Suenos fell off our radar. This past weekend we decided to try again but did not have reservations but they asked if we would like to wait 30 mins for a table or eat at... More

An acquaintance of mine who is a very well traveled lady and her boyfriend, who is an incredibly successful attorney both raved on about how much they loved the food here, and I mistakenly assumed that because she is so well traveled and he is successful I just figured that with that combination they would both have a taste for...
