This was our first meal in NYC, this visit & it was excellent! The dishes were presented beautifully & tasted incredible! A fantastic start to our holiday, which set a high standard for others to follow. We have eaten at many restaurants around the world & this one is definitely up there. Next visit to NYC, we'll be back!

Enjoyed the looks of the interior. Very new place 8 months ?? We started with a great appetizer ( Calamarri ??). I had a simple salad that was full of flavor. Everyone (5) even the teenagers wanted to go back to this place. We were in nicer established restaurants that did not have this flavor. Try it and then you... More

Close to Times Square, excellent service and food. We started with the Ancho Crusted Tune Tostados and guacamole - delicious! We had the Chilean Sea Bass (scrumptious!), grilled sirloin and grilled salmon for entrees, everything was great. Also wonderful margaritas! It's a cozy, relaxing place and we were never rushed with the service. A definite recommendation!

The service was excellent. We never felt rushed, like we experienced in other NY restaurants. The food was flavorful. We enjoyed the atmosphere n it was teen friendly, brought my 17 year old son. He loved the food n the cornbread. Staff was very friendly. A friend recomended this place n it was perfect. No reservation n seated immediatly. Great

If you want good food and service visit Hell's Kitchen. The staff were really accomodating and the choice of food suited all. Nibbles of pita toast, which are gratis, are brought to your table as you choose your meal from the menu. I had the calamari to start. For the main course my wife had a salmon dish and I... More

I have eaten here every time I have been to NYC. There is a reason for that. The margaritas set you up with some great salsa and chips for a wonderful meal in a restaurant that isn't too big, while still having a great vibe. One year had a steak with a plantain reduction sauce that I will never forget!... More

Went with bunch of colleagues and it was good fun. Their crepa and salmon are to die for. They make their drinks totally Mexican style and so strong! Only be careful of the glasses, it looked like they weren't washed! Overall good food good place

Took a few colleagues who were in town for business here. Great ambiance. The menu offers a lot of interesting choices. I ordered the salmon which was cooked the perfect temperature but didn't have a whole lot of flavor and was drowning in cream sauce. My colleagues enjoyed their meals but consensus was it wasn't anything spectacular to write home... More

We visited New York for New Year and as such this meal out was a treat - a chance to dress nicely instead of wrapped up like a yeti. The menu had a good range of items and the food was really lovely. The resturant itself has a great atmosphere and style and is a row of tables opposite a... More

Original place and very bright due to all the window walls. Great and tasty food in good quantity. Very polite service. The desserts are good to share. They had an amazing raspberry sorbet and an unbelievably good crême brulé. I would love to come back. Totally worth it.
