“Great food!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

This was an excellent restaurant. Great food and an awesome mango margarita. I would highly recommend making reservations. The oven brick quesadilla is a great choice.

“Fantastic Mexican- easily the best I've had in New York City”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

This restaurant serves authentic Mexican cuisine with its own twist. The single portions of guacamole must contain 1-2 whole avocados and the tortillas are the best I have ever had.
Mains are not your usual tacos and quesadillas but that is only a positive- highly recommended.

“Contemporary Mexican”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

This restaurant serves contemporary food with a Mexican flavor. You will not find the usual Mexican entrées on their menu, but the food was very good. The ceviche's were very small portions so go for the tasting of five. Nicely presented and tasty. The grilled shrimps were a bit tough, but the pork chops were very good. A bottle of fine Mexican red wine completed the meal. The waiter was very friendly and helpful.

“One of the Best- Mexican”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

Poped in for a late lunch and was very impressed. We ordered the Mango Frozen Margarita with real lttle chuncks of mango. YUM. We enjoyed the Chicken quesadilla cooked in the Wood Burning Brick open oven. The atmosphere was very hip and trendy, not quite your typical mexican restaurant. We will eat here again when we return to New York!

“Wonderful mexican with a twist”
Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

Worth a visit if you love Mexican food. Everything worth it and reminding you what good food tastes like. Do try the spicy guacamole and the beef tacos. Also the margaritas are excellent though quite strong, so go slowly with them depending on next morning meeting!
