This place has a lot going for it... atmosphere, location, tequila (the good stuff), but in the end it's all about the food for me. Consistently delicious. Don't skip the guac.

The food is good, but I come for the cucumber and cilantro margaritas (Margarita de Pepino). Now that summer is here, I plan on visiting more often to cool off with one (who am I kidding, several) of these refreshing beverages.

If you live in Brooklyn Heights (like me) or Dumbo, you have been dreaming of a good mexican restaurant opening in the hood. Gran Electrica finally has done it for us. I've been many times, and I love the food. Its a great place to have a couple of plates of tacos at the bar, or you can dive into some more serious dishes. I love all the ceviches, the chile relleno, the chicken liver, and the shredded lamb shank. The tacos come 2 per order on handmade tortillas (not the double layer thing). The beef tongue, beef brisket, and pork tacos are a deal at $7 per order, and the fish is crispy and fresh, but a little more expensive. The salsas are all great and range in spiciness. Margaritas are fresh and delicious, and they have a nice selection of beer and tequila for shooting or sipping. I went for brunch a few times with the family, and am thrilled to finally have a place to eat some proper mexican style huevos. Service has been usually quick and friendly, and they make an effort when the place is full. The outdoor area in summer time is a treat -probably the best in Brooklyn. Very happy to have Gran Electrica in the neighborhood for a quick bite, brunch, or dinner/drinks with friends.

Fresh and delicious food. Really nice and really authentic. great cocktail list, so many fresh juice margaritas to choose from . Beet juice was my favorite. Cool staff and cool atmosphere. Overall A+

The food and the atmosphere are what drags me in but the service has turned me off now. Maybe for good. The wait staff all seem to be training every time I go. I haven't been read specials twice but the table beside me has been. The order of the food has been wrong twice. My husband and I each ate solo due to lack of timing. The server never followed up with us to see how things are going, how food is, clear any empty glasses or plates. I have had to track someone down to pay the bill. It's really too bad, hopefully management takes care of this.

I live in DUMBO, I've wanted to check this place out but didn't make it in until last night. Why did it take me so long!? - this place is lovely. Fun quirky atmosphere (check out their cool DUMBO wallpaper), good drinks (we all had margaritas, both the regular margarita and the spicy citrus margarita were great), and gawd was the food good. Fish tacos yum, an awesomely sloppy torta sandwich, and pork ribs made for a great dinner and new resolve to get to the gym in the morning. Churros for dessert - good not amazing, but I woke up craving them this morning so they obviously had something going on. A few cons: server was a little annoyingly over-eager, the wait for a table was long (they don't take reservations). Next time I'll show up early for a margarita at the bar while I wait.

Loved Gran Electrica. What a cool spot- had a great atmosphere and the food was definitely worth the trip from Manhattan. So hard to find a restaurant that serves such delicious food that is also fresh and vibrant. Highly recommended.
