This was a repeat visit after some good, and mediocre experiences here in the past. This time, it was positive. We had not booked and there was a 15 min or so wait for a table, so we grabbed a drink at the bar. Dinner was very good, not overly authentic true Mexican, but tasty and fresh. A word of... More

Service was poor from the beginning ordered chips and salsa which didn't appear. Waiting 40 minutes in which time a table of 4 that came in after us had received their mains. We spoke... More

My buddy and I came here, honestly, not because we wanted to, but because it was the only place that had the least amount of time to wait. (You wait a long time to eat in NYC, lol) So we each just started off with some beer at the bar before our table was ready. Only Mexican beer peeps, no... More

Cozy and warm restaurant / bar with great food. The guacamole is excellent, with fresh homemade tortilla chips. The enchiladas pollo mole was very good and authentic. Great selection of tequila and beer. At Christmas it is all done up with hundreds of lights making it very festive! The tables and chairs are sturdy wood and comfortable. Loved that this... More

We stopped for lunch. We ordered margaritas and chips and salsa and got three varieties of salsas. Then we closed out our bar tab and had lunch. Although you pay for the chips, they refill the chips. I had the corn tacos. I thought that was going to be too much for me to eat, but they were cute little... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
