    avoid brunch

    went for sunday brunch with friends won't return. everything that should be easy wasn't. we had to plead for water and refils. the busboy kept focused on clearing our tableremoving plates when we weren't finished, taking away even our spoon so we had to stir milk into our coffee using the only knife left on the table. unlike many other places that have complementary drinks or muffins or even chips and salsa for brunch, everything was priced for standard dinner fare, despite being a brunch menu. parts of our order was wrong and in the end we were just happy to get out of there. with so many wonderful places to brunch on the upper west it makes no sense to waste your time here.

    good, solid B to B+

    Took me by surprise because it's real Mexican, not American-Mexicanwhich means you should not go here unless you know what you're looking at on the menu. Overall a good experiences, but lots of tourists stopping in after hitting up the museum nearby. I'd go again if I had a craving for real Mexican.

    Great find on upper west side

    Being an avid fan of Mexican food I have to say dined here last night and will definately be going back. Guac to start was excellent and chix fajitas outstanding. Servers were extremely attentive and helpful. Overall a great experience.

    great homemade mexican food

    Walked into this restaurant before catching a show at the Imax based on reviews. All of us loved the homestyle mexican food. (very different from taqueria style mexican but a refreshing change) The sauces for the mole chicken and the papduzules were great. the picante salsa was one of the very best and the service was top notch for us that day. Highly recommend this place for someone in the area. Pretty cool ambience too.

    two words Al carbon.....

    My girlfriend and i happened to run in to this place, and might i add, are we so thankful that we did. PROS The zucchini rice is great, especially when accompanied by the black beans. But back to the Tacos Al Carbon. They come 3 tacos with a trio of salsas and vegetables, with a side of white rice with corn. The staff is warm, attentive, and very friendly. A bit pricey so make sure to bring some cash. CONS do have to admit though, that the seating is a little close to other tables which might infringe on those of you who want a more private setting. EVEN BIGGER CON They don't take Amex.

    not impressed

    Went to Cafe Frida last night with a friend. The tables were very cramped and closely spaced, the staff was decently friendly but very hurried, and the waiter/bartender did not seem at ALL interested in serving us (and certainly not promptly). The food was average to better than average - from what I could tell, it was a mix of Mexican and other Hispanic foods. The alcohol was (surprise, surprise) extremely expensive. I doubt I'll go back.

    favorite local dinner spot

    My boyfriend and I adore this place. We usually end up coming back because we know the staff, the food is great (queso fundido is my favorite) and the drinks are delicious. It is pricey and we always end up with a bill over $100. Try the drink specials! the Mexican Mojito is fantastic...
