I'm a fan of the original outpost on Park Avenue and have always loved their Gauc! Maybe if you midtown suits get out of the ten block radius of work you would know that this is a great restaurant, but I wouldn't expect you to know much beyond Taco Bell. I do still think the Park Avenue location has better service and slightly better food. Yes the prices are a bit high and for the area I would probably go to Mama Mexico first, but this restaurant has always been a favorite.

I came here with a bunch of colleagues during lunch. It's a nice, little bit fancy place. Prices are high (normal for the type of atmosphere). If you want more and tastier food, one is probably better off going to TacoBell. Prices were pretty high in my opinion after seeing what I got and tasting it.

Stopped by here on a Friday night w/o reservations. so we got stuck next to the bar and were required to yelll across the table all night. Portions were very small for the price but food was good. Spicy guacamole was actually spicy. Drink prices typical for NYC. Service was right on - didn't have to wait too long and didn't get rushed out.

A friend of mine and I stopped in for dinner after work, and it turned out to be a pleasant, if flawed experience. The food itself was delicious, and the bartenders know how to pour a drink. The main flaw is that one may have to wait some time to receive the well-poured drink and the made-on-the-spot guacamole. The only other item I found irksome is the "how you *guys* doin'" greeting given to my friend and I, even though we are very obviously women. Guess it's a generational thing, but it does emphasize that this is a place for a casual social dinner, definitely not for business meals.

Hosted a dinner for 4 here on Jan 5 07 -- ambiance is lovely, waitstaff was friendly, obliging and helpful. We had guacamole for 4, one mild dish, one hot -- substantial servings, and generous with the chips. Appetizers and entrees were presented well, and everyone enjoyed their meal (variety ranging from seafood to beef to vegetarian). Two guests had wine. One guest ordered a Cockburn port wine for desert, the rest of us had coffee and sorbet, waiter comped us ice cream -- and the house sends a delightful, petite chocolate drink for "afters." We had a lovely time and will return. I'm not sure why this restaurant is getting dubious reviews? Then again we're not "foodies" -- we like a pleasant place, good food, nice staff, quiet enough to talk to each other, a roomy table. The bill was normal for Midtown East -- and I would say Dos Caminos compares favorably to the competition in the area, Mama Mexico and Pompanos. I'd choose Dos Caminos again.

The Guacamole was decent. The setting is cozy and pleasant. The food was mediocre. The service lousy. I thought it would be a good place to have dinner before the long commute home.........I was wrong.

I went to Dos Caminos for the first time a few weeks ago, and will never be going back. I ordered the chicken tacos, which were tiny and bland. I could have made them with seasoning packets from the grocery store. Whats more is they charge you $5 for white rice and beans. The waittress was unpleasant. While this restaurant might be fun for drinks, save your money and eat elsewhere.
