Good guacamole and margaritas. We had the enchiladas with the mole sauce. Noisy with good energy. Overall, experience and food was enjoyable.

Went to Mole during a drinking holiday and was seated very quickly. Drink specials were good and extremely reasonable ($5-$7 margaritas) but the pours were a little weak. Meals were priced as you'd expect for the city ($15 tacos - $24 on the higher end sizzling dishes). We had the fresh made large spicy guacamole as a group and it lasted a fair while between the 5 of us, but you might need two if you want something to munch on during the entree. The meal was topped off by a buddy downing a large Jalapeño ... this wasn't the friendly variety. I don't recommend the peppers to the faint of heart, this restaurant's philosophy doesn't pull punches. These suckers were HOT.

Every meal I have eaten at Mole has been fantastic. Their table side guacamole is exceptional as are all their entrees. It is a lot of food so be prepared to take some home or be stuffed. (good stuffed, though! )
Service is always good, too

Since we stayed in Williamsburg, we checked out the Mole @ Kent Ave, just off the East River. Friendly staff. Late night. Wonderful food. You might even think you are in Mexico, if you close your eyes. Since I am a "mole"-addict, I have to compare this dish with my previous Mexican tastings. And I must say, the Mole at Mole is excellent! Spicey enough, chocolaty enough.... the chicken soft and tender. Of course I am just speaking of the Brooklyn kitchen since, unfortunately I did not have the chance to compare this with one of the other NYC locations. If you are a Mexican foodie, take a trip to Mole!

We didn't think that this restaurant was anything special, pretty much an average Mexican. The food was good on the whole though. However, their burritos are huge - too big in our opinion - it was like something from Man vs Food! In contrast, my main course seemed quite limited in comparison. The atmosphere was good though, and it certainly seemed to be a popular restaurant.
