We stopped in Mole Mexican Bar & Grill right as they opened for lunch. I ordered a chile poblano. I think it was left over from the night before. It was somewhat chewy and not thoroughly heated. The taste was very good, however, I think you should try the restaurant when it was busier. My daughter ordered nachos with ground... More

We had lunch on a beautiful day. The restaurant was busy but the service was good. The food was tasty. At our table people had enchiladas, salads with grilled shrimp, a burrito and pork tacos. It was traditional Mexican food. Everything was good but the best was the freshly made guacamole. Excellent!

I have been to many Mexican Restaurants in New York and Mole by far is one of my favorites. Great Margaritas, great food, great Mole.

Service is Ok, and we really enjoyed the guacamole. The food was decent but didn't WOW us. Options can be limited for Mexican in NY but there are some gems if you look.

We stumbled across this restaurant when we didn't want to wait to get into another place a few blocks away. It is super small, but the food portions are huge and are extremely flavorful. My boyfriend loves the chimichanga. I think this is his favorite Chimi out of every Mexican restaurant he has ever eaten at. I love their burritos... More

I want to rate this higher but the fact that on a Friday at 3 PM there was one server and one bartender shows a lack of foresight or someone phoned in sick. But I have to review the day I was there and that day we weren't waited on well but we were waited on . We had just... More

We rarely go for Mexican food.... were spoiled by authentic Mexican food in Mexico. The food at Mole, however, was so wonderful that it deserves a review. After having nachos, we had to order a second plate, they were so good. The enchilada came in a velvet pepper sauce that was a dream, and the very cheap beef tacos were... More

We stumbled across this restaurant after another restaurant was closed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We went during happy hour and had the margaritas (passion fruit) - they were very strong!! The guacamole was so nice and made right in front of our eyes. Nachos were soo nice!! I would head back there again.
