“Good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Tried this Mexican restaurant because a friend said it was the best Mexican food he has had in the city. Yes its very good but my all time favorite is Rosa Mexicano in the east side.

“Delicious Food and”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2013

Attentive service too. Everything was great except very noisy. It is a really lively and fun atmosphere -hard to hear tho if you are going in order to have a Talk, happy or not.But nice banquettes for 4 or so _ a good place to go w friends or co-workers to enjoy yourselves. Paola our waitress was terrific and the men assisting w water, drinks the same. Very alert and cohesive team.

Nice atmosphere, nice people, great food!

The salmon excellent, the tuna good. The flan wonderful!

Nice to have a good upscale restaurant in the neighborhood!

“Great brunch, unbeatable price/location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The all-you-can eat brunch is an incredible deal for unlimited food and drinks. The staff is great (although the music is a bit loud) and the location in the upper east side is convenient. I would highly recommend the fish tacos!

“Used to be best Mexican in NYC...not anymore”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Long time fan, but under newish management it has steadily fallen from grace. Not bad, fine in fact. But, it used to be truly great and it is merely acceptable, and pricey for the current quality level. Sadly, will not return unless someone else is paying.
