This family-run restaurant serves the best Mexican dishes I have ever had. The chef excelled in balancing the various herbs and spices, and has chosen the best ingredients. I cannot comment on their wine list, because I enjoyed a delicious margarita from a variety of margaritas which include fruity ones.

We were graciously greeted by the staff and sat at a cozy table by the window. Guacamole was fresh and had vibrant flavors. I ordered a... More

While Kips Bay is not a great neighborhood for food, Mexico Lindo takes it up a bit. My teenagers like it alot. The house hot sauce is very Hot. Service was ok--but we were rushing and they got us out when we needed.

This small neighborhood Mexican restaurant is on 2nd Ave near 25th St. The service was pleasant, the ambiance good and the food was tasty and creatively served. A bit pricey for folks on a budget.

Food was good. Nice ambiance. Friendly staff. But for the price we were expecting better food. Not as good as other smaller Mexican places we have in the neighborhood.

If you like great Mexican food and dynamite margueritas, this is your kind of place. We enjoyed some perfect margueritas at the bar as we waited briefly for our table. They were so good, we ordered a pitcher of them with our meal. We started with appetizers of ceviche and the quesadilla de harina and they were delicious. Our entrees... More

To be fair, my mother lives across the street so this is often our go to restaurant when we are looking to dine out. This was the first time we went for brunch, however, and I was impressed by the generous portions and the fact that the lunch specials were modestly priced. The total came out to under for $40...
