I came here for happy hour and food with a friend. I was a little early so I sat at the bar and the bartender was so nice about helping me choose a drink and not pressuring me to do so! My friend and I later got a table and again the service was great. The tables are a little... More

Due to being caught short the decision was made to dive into the next restaurant we came across purely for the restroom 😊. After essential business was completed in the restrooms at the end of a subterranean labyrinth we decided to stay and get some food. We were not disappointed we only had 2 appetizers but had to be virtually... More

HORRIBLE customer service. The waiter charged us extra and when we spoke to a manager about the extra chargers, he immediately said "Well if you don't want to pay then we'll call the police" He didn't introduce himself, ask about the situation or anything before immediately threatening us. He acted insane and started sticking up his middle finger. There's many... More

I can't wait to visit again!! I love the energizing atmosphere! The drinks were really well made and the food was great. You could tell they used fresh ingredients and put love into their dish. It wasn't sloppy and just thrown onto a plate. Everyone that worked there was super friendly and even the other visitors were nice and happy.... More

Had a great meal the other day at this place, right around the corner from the Angelika Film Center. Food selection was not all what you usually find in standard mexican restaurants, and the presentation was real nice. Wait staff was efficient and responsive. I'd make this a five-star, except I thought the music was a bit loud for a... More

We got here later in the evening and they were no longer serving food. However, the bar is open until 4am and the music is superb. They play salsa merengue bachata and it's a great vibe environment. They also have hookahs and it just adds to the great vibe experience.

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
