Went here with business partners. Great drinks, margaritas I mean, caipirinha is not my choice. Anyway the place has an amazing vibe. Is decorated quite cool. Food was amazing. Don’t forget to get fresh guacamole made at side table. I would go here again.

Great spot for dinner or getting drinks and appetizers. They have 29 flavors of margaritas and countless other drinks. Table side guacamole is a must get!

The food was great! I didn't find out until the next day that I had left my purse. No Biggie! They had it at the hostess desk for me the next day! Wonderful, kind staff!!!

We stopped for drinks and apps at the bar. Bartender friendly and provided suggestions but drinks and apps are small for the price. Holidays lights were pretty. Good for a one time visit.

We dined there after the musical ended just before 11:00pm. They have a danced floor upstairs and it seemed very popular. The service was good, but slow. The food was good enough, but very pricy. Because it was late, there were not many restaurants open.

I am sadden by the recent visit to Iguana in NY. The services was disgusting. We waited for 45 mins to get our order taken and then another half hour for soda refills….we then found out they could only do cash. The ATM “doesn't” belong...to them and is 17% of the money taken….after spending $165 on food, they told us the don’t own the club and it an additional $20. Don’t do it…go elsewhere.More

We had great service and the food was wonderful. They will make you homemade guacamole at your table. Beer selection isn't great, but the cocktail selection is.

We stayed at the Ameritania Hotel right next door to Iguana. We had a few hours to kill before our driver picked us up to take us back to the airport and we saw the happy hour sign outside the restaurant and decided to give...it a try! We all had flavored margaritas and they were all delicious. The bartender gave us some chips and salsa which was a nice bonus. The only downside, which apparently is just a NY thing, the will not give a bill to individuals. You have to give them multiple forms of payment for it to be split up evenly.More

Much better Mexican elsewhere in Times Square. We went for a pre theatre dinner. Service was exceptional, food very over priced. Too many onions and peppers and very skimpy on the steak and chicken in my fajitas. Sangria was tasty but overpriced.

For dancing, was awful. Cost $15 entrance a person, and they made us pay to check our coats even though the place was completely empty. rude bouncer and rude bartender. Bartender took selfies for ten minutes before asking us what we wanted to drink. The...drink list has no drink prices, and when we did order, the bill was way super high. (9$ Coronas, $14 mixed drink) Downstairs emptyyyy until 1:30am. Gross, run-down. We tried to give it a shot since we paid a ton to get in- but no. Save your money and don’t go.More

We decided last minute to try this place out. We found the staff and atmosphere to be very comforting. The table side guacamole was delicious. Our table had everything from fish, steak to a burrito. All were excellent.

It was near the end of a long day of rehearsals and meetings. My wife wanted to see some more but I was beat. We stopped in just to appease her. The people were fabulous! The manager, the staff, the patrons; everyone seemed to be...there for a good time. That’s what we ended up having and that’s what I needed. The food was quality. The music on the two dance floors was exceptionally good. It is a great, comfortable place to dance and enjoy Latin or rhythm and blues music. The cover charge for the dance floors was $15. It was a bargain.More

Terrible... You pay to breathe... We just stepped by to check this place out. We had to pay the entrance, we were obligated to leave the coach and pay for it, even though we didn’t want to. The waitress was rude and the place was...totally empty.More

Considered myself to ba a mixed drink pro, almost a mixologist. But a recent visit to the upstairs dance floor, changed my mind about where I stand. The bartenders' skills blew mine out of the water. Can't remember his funny name but the guy is...a master. Couldn't stop observing and tasting his artful libations. Check him out. You won't regret it.More

Great atmosphere! Well served with a great staff. A place that differs from the others around in New york. Can really recommend the place. Negative thing is that even as a guest of the restaurant you need to pay entrance to their salsa club which...in my opinion should be free for all restaurant guests.More

The Nighthawks play big band music. Technically it is jazz, but historical jazz.
