¡Dios Mio! Probably the worst mole poblano I have ever had... The folks here who said nice things have never had a good version of it... Watery, no spice, no chocolate, just a mess.... 😪😪😪 And the hot sauce was like vinegar - probably (industrialized)...Tabasco. No green hot sauce available, no complimentary chips, and asked if I wanted jalapeño to spice it up - for $2.50 extra. Never again...More

Another fabulous restaurant starts trying to rip off regular customers. Automatically adding gratuity to the bill and then suggesting additional tips so you end up tipping twice ($60 on a $130 bill) used to be a regular not any more. I understand because of the...pandemic restaurants have been closed and suffered but ripping off customers who have tried to support you by dining outside multiple times in freezing conditions and snow to provide custom and support is not the way to go. Absolutely disgustedMore

Very mediocre quality food,service with an attitude and margaritas, highly recommended by the server, with artificial flavorings and steep prices.” Arriba Arriba is suggested by a friend as a "Great Mexican restaurant" so I came all the way from Harlem with a friend visiting from...ATL to try and definitely not coming back, just not worth the trip and the money. Dinner for two with two "mango shmango margaritas" $161 Wasn't able to impress a friend either😉More

Average. We have such a great choice of Mexican restaurants here in nyc and this falls behind. Fine for a night out as it has a good atmosphere but a lot of the dishes lack flavour or authenticity. Much better options available in the city...- for the price I would avoidMore

I had the pleasure of having lunch here on a recent trip to NYC. We got guacamole for the table and I got the taco salad. We also sampled several types of their variety of margueritas! Everything was delicious and affordable (especially by NYC standards)....I will definitely not hesitate to eat here again.More

We went here twice during our stay, the first being "oh my god, this is the best Mexican food ever" and the second ... "What were we thinking?" The food is good, the service excellent and if our first visit is an example, really good...value, the second... not so much.More

We went to visit this place with a couple of friends. Attention was good but food was low in quality. As a family we love mexican food but the three of us agreed that it was far from what we expected.

We were in the city to see the tree at Rockefeller Center and shopping. Arriba Arriba was close and perfect to start our day. Highly recommend this and glad we got reservations because the place filled up quickly. Only recommendation is that they start serving...coffee!More

Enjoyed another great meal here during a recent visit to NYC. The chips and salsa (best I've every had) are worth the trip to this restaurant. Great atmosphere and vibe. The fajitas entree is enough for two. Awesome tacos too. This is my go-to Mexican...restaurant in NYC.More
