“You Must Go Here!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

This restuarant is divine. The Frutas Guacamole is one of the best guacamoles I have ever eaten. As a matter of fact, we ate all of the first bowl and ordered a second that went just as fast as the first. The drinks are unique and flavorful. We ordered appetizer portion quesadillas and tacos after all of the guac and they were wonderful. This restuarant is definately on my list to try again the next NYC trip. One warning is to go early or make a reservation because it was packed - I guess everyone heard about the great food!

“Absolutely fabulous lunch near Met”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

My husband and I used the TripAdvisor "near me now" app to find this gem of a restaurant near the Met in NYC. We needed a break from the paintings and this was the perfect lunch spot. We had amazing guacamole/chips to start, 2 incredible margaritas (with cucumber/jalapeno and blueberry/hibiscus), and 2 great entrees: steak/eggs with mole enchilada and I had a mushroom/truffle quesadilla. Everything was VERY yummy. Highly recommend for lunch and I imagine dinner would be great too.

“Gormet Mexican Food??? You Bet!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

Make a reservation it's that good!!! Two levels but great intimacy. The food is amazing, Perfect servings, well presented and truly delicious! The prices are moderate but cheap when quality and taste are added in. Really pleasant and efficient service and though crowded, no one seems to get in anyone's way! Really fun as well as satisfying and delicious. Was here for lunch and dinner and never disappointed.
