2 man mariachi on Wed - great food & drinks Happy BDay!

Birthday dinner was fab! Chris, our waiter, was extremely nice and hooked me up for my birthday. The food was SO Good! Nachos appetizer will feed 2-4 people. The pork loin dinner was Delicious and the tuna dinner selection was perfect! Plenty of food is served and the drinks (margaritas) are tasty... read more

rip off,They advertised brunch for a12.95 with a complimentary glass of champagne or mimosa. There were about 10 items to choose from. I ordered the steak and eggs from the advertised menu. I also ordered a coffee. I had to ask for my complimentary mimosa half way through breakfast, when they brought it they took my coffee cup away and... More

The food is quite good. The nachos are nice with some chips with the mix in around. Fresh, made at the table, guac. It too a really long time to get an order of fajitas and 2 burritos. 15-20 min. Kids were too tired to eat by then.

I can't think of worse service or less caring management. My first mistake was going into a place at 7 pm on a Saturday night and not needing a reservation. If that didn't tip me off, the annoyed waitress should have. Did she really expect me to order a drink for a 14 year old? Food was fair. This is... More

Worst nightclub I've ever been to: Rude staff, no cloak room, expensive. I definitely will not go back.

We selected this restaurant because it is located near to one of the broadway theaters (we saw An Act of God). The restaurant was busy but not crowded. My daughter and I were seated immediately, at the back of the restaurant close to the kitchen. Not the best location, but it was okay. It became quickly apparent either the restaurant... More

Our last night in NYC and we decided on Mexican. We were seated very fast. Our drinks were very good but on the small side. We had the guacamole made fresh table side and it was outstanding. They had a lot of attention to detail to make it so good! Our meals came out quickly and they were delicious! Overall... More

Liked the service and the bar was fun while waiting for a table. Good food nothing spectacular but for Mexican food that is just fine with me. Nice touch when Mariachi duet serenaded my fiance and me with the romantic song

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
