This restaurant has some of the best Mexican food we have every had. The Magaritas are great, chips crispy and not too salty, and we love their selection of Salsa's from mild to spicy. (We like the really spicy). One of the few restaurants that does tamales well, and allt he ingredients are fresh. This is not a very big... More

While it isn't an amazing location, the owners/operators have excelled at making the space feel comfortable and upscale. I ordered a delicious sangria and vegetarian enchiladas. The food had kick to it! If you're a fan of Mexican food, I'd definitely check this place out. The overall experience was excellent.

Ate here for lunch and the food was ssssoooooo good. Ordered the chimichanga and it was just amazing, cooked and served perfectly. My girlfriends also ordered the tacos and burrito and they were also very pleased with their selection. When visting NY, I would def return.

After a bus tour guide recommended ninth avenue for restaurants in terms of value, we came upon TA Cocina. The menu lured us in as did the bustling and colourful atmosphere. Our waitress was super-friendly, constantly smiling, very attentive. My husband had the mixed fajitas and I had steak tacos. We didn't have the BOGO Margaritas, but I did have... More

Have eaten here for more than 4 years & I haven't counted but easily at least a 100 times. I have encountered a few naysayers who question the authenticity of the taste of salsa & guacamole served here, but I couldn't care less. I love Mexican food & to me this restaurant defines it. My typical order 90% of the... More

This place has BOGO margaritas so one night we decided to go. The margaritas were excellent. We had the chips and salsa with them which was average. The wait staff was very attentive and the atmosphere was very hip and comfortable. I would go here again and get real food next time.

We enjoyed a delicious variety of authentic meat and seafood dishes - all made with fresh ingredients and cooked to order. The staff were attentive and extremely polite, happy to respond to any questions - the subtle atmosphere and margarita's also provided a nice accompaniment to the meal. This is a wonderful place, located very near - but far better... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
