I've only had lunches there. The food is authentic, satisfying, and reasonably priced. There is more than the usual tacos and enchiladas from which to choose. There is a full bar and imported beers. The decor is pleasant.

I love Mexican food and like to try new places. I ordered guacamole for the table along with salsa and chips. Salsa seemed to be from a jar. Family ordered quesadillas, they were ok. Not the place if you are looking for authentic Mexican

Great restaurant for the family to go and relax. The staff is friendly and the food is ok. We enjoy the atmosphere more than the food.

Went there on Saturday evening and the food (tacos al pastor)and service were excellent, went back on Sunday to enjoy their food again and try another dish and waited over 10 minutes once I was seated( no one came to get my drink order), I tried flagging down the waitress and just got waived off, so I left.

We recently moved to Fishkill and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and were sort of overwhelmed by the excellent, friendly service. We will be back.

The food was wonderfully authentic Mexican food. My husband is Mexican and I know my Mexican food. This place is good! The rest of the diners were very satisfied with their food as well.

We went back to Cilantro based on our first visit. We were disappointed. The service was welcoming, but we had to wait too long to order and we were on a time schedule. We both ordered the same, soft tacos. They were skimpy portions and came cold to the table. They were not anything to write home about. The chicken... More

We're really sorry to read about your most recent experience with us, Fang. It's always stressful when you're in a time crunch and things aren't moving as quickly as you need them to. We can assure you that our tacos are usually flavorful and generous in size, so it sounds like you may have caught us on an off night.... More

We had planned to go to Maya, another Mexican restaurant in Fishkill. But they claimed a 25 minute wait for a table (which I thought was optimistic), so we went to another Mexican restaurant, Cilantro, which we found on Trip Advisor. We were very happy with our choice. The staff was welcoming. The complementary salsa and chips was great. I... More

Well the other spot's loss was totally our gain -- thanks so much for giving us a try! It's great to read you and your date enjoyed the chips and salsa, as well as the enchiladas and chicken special. We appreciate your feedback on the rice, and we'll make sure this doesn't happen again moving forward. Hope to see you... More
