Great Mexican restaurant and reasonable prices. Not on the menu but great mojitos. Shared a quesadilla with chicken and it was delicious.

We went here after visiting the National Museum of Natural History. We’re a party of 6 and had a party of 8 entering the place at almost the same moment. They managed thus admirably: each table was served quick, friendly and with good food! The place is run by mexican’s, so food is excellent!

So after my disappointing visit the day before to a pretend Mexican restaurant, we land at Cafe Frida. Let me get to the point. Fabulous food, outstanding real margaritas, terrific reliable service. This will be a return visit for me. Some of our food was something so simple but so favorable. Loved this place. The atmosphere made it all the better that we kept eating and drinking. And, they were able to accommodate us without reservations! Much appreciated!! Although I might stay in lower Manhattan, I will make the trek to this locale. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

We didn't have any food here, we just came for drinks. The margaritas were amazing! We sampled a couple and they were all equally good. Super cute little place with great ambiance across from th museum of natural history. Highly recommend.
