    Cozy- I always feel @ home@ ease

    my 50" Birthday dinner was excellent. everyone place order together & was well rec'd display with a smile & with good humor, nice background music. The food was so good (Salmon, red snapper, shrimp, the fajita chicken with light chocolate) wow. We left our plates clean. great flan & drinks.

    Prices listed are grossly understated.

    First I'd like I say that I love this restaurant and the food and service is really very good. With that, I called in a Tacos Al Carbon order listed on this site as $12.95, but was told my order with tax would be $23.00. I asked why and was informed that the actual price is $18.95. A $6.00 difference is shocking! Fortunately, they tell you the price as your order to avoid confusion, but $23 for tacos! I probably won't be coming back. I'll miss this place...

    Is the food authentic? I don't know but its good!

    So I got take out in between on my study breaks. I called up and spoke to a guy who was very friendly and let me know without asking that my food would be twenty minutes because of what I ordered. I arrived there and everything was ready to go. I arrived 20 minutes on the dot. I got the chicharon with two orders of Maduros. for the 18.35 I spent I got my order and chips and salsa which came with a side order of rice and beans and a soda. when I arrived the guy remembered my name and was extremely friendly. he went to the back to look for salt packets for me. I don't know if this is authentic mexican food but the food itself was delicious. my maduros were nice and soft and my chicken was great. I would recommend this place!!

    Poor Customer Service!

    Went to this restaurant with a party of four. We ordered about $100 worth of food and drinks. After we placed our order my daughter asked for another cup of salsa for her fajitas. This is the small cup they put on the table with the chips. We were told that we would be charged an additional $3.50 for the small cup of salsa. Seriously? We asked for the manager, mainly because we couldn't believe it. Obviously it wasn't the $3.50 but the fact they would actually do that and be so inflexible in light of such a large order. But yes they would, absolutely no exceptions. My feeling is that in NYC where there is a Mexican restaurant on just about every block , unless the food is exceptional (which this certainly wasn't) why would you go to one that clearly does not care about making customers happy. Additionally I would pick one next time that has an A rating from the Health deaprtment rather than this one that has a B which indicates some sanitary issue, along with their poor customer service.

    Forgot to Place my Order

    Called for a pick up. They told me 20 minutes. When I arrived my order had never been put in. Adorable.

    Mayday! Mayday!

    Mexico Lindo has gone down in flames. This place was originally built on a foundation of high quality Mexican fare with an hint of fine dining. A solid reputation rightly earned during the course of roughly 3 decades. However the new management seems sadly to have lost focus on the food. Living less than one block away ordering is a fast option. Started with Guacamole and Snapper Ceviche. 10$ Red Snapper Tropical Ceviche was a good portion, perfectly seasoned and tender. Thats where the good news ends. 10$ Guac tasted worse than store-bought with odd bitterness and zero herbal seasoning or lime/lemon juice... Shameful. 17$ Shrimp Enchiladas in Tomatillo-Jalapeno salsa tasted strictly of unseasoned shrimp and corn tortilla. No bold tart Tomatillo, or fruity spiced Jalapeno flavors at all. No cheese anywhere, no sour cream or onion or cilantro garnish. 24$ Whole fried Snapper with Garlic sauce. They fried an unseasoned fish crisp then covered it in sauce so the crust gets soggy!? So, swimming in a great sauce? No, just a kiddy pool of warm OIL with a subtle hint of garlic somewhere in the last row... 17$ Shrimp Crepes were decent but flavors were unbalanced an lacked depth, like a dangerously shoddy chicken Korma sauce. Faint drizzle of crema to garnish... Forgettable. 7$ Dessert of flan was proper; rich caramel cream. The Ceviche was nothing short of care and beauty. Or was it luck? The 3 entrees were house and ranged from mediocre to insulting. When what I long considered a solid Mexican standby cannot execute a stellar Guac (and charges a premium) there's a problem adentro. All "Specials" were served with onlyrice... So beans are out of style or something? How special... Nobody seems to be checking quality control here or maybe they just don't care anymore. There probably are other hidden gems throughout the menu like the Ceviche but a GREAT menu is CONSISTENT, not a culinary game of Russian Roulette where hope and careful selection dominates over effort and attention to detail.
