They are real stingy on the portion sizes. I ordered lamb chops and got 1 for the dinner portion. This just does not work, especially given the competition in NYC.

This is the best all around Mexican for me right now. The prices are reasonable and the food is so good you can literlly try anything on the menu and be happy. The place is a little small, and the bill can add up with drinks (they are good though) but there just isn't a mexican that I will go back to again and again besides Ofrenda.

We recently tried Ofrenda with our friends and everyone definitely enjoyed it. The guac was solid, though you will need two orders for four people. The guys had the steak and it was excellent, and that's not even mentioning the extremely reasonable price tag. The ladies had the scallops, and they were both very pleased with them as well. The service was a bit spotty, as I had to flag down the waitress twice, and they brought out our entrees noticeably too quickly. That said, they didn't rush us out, and everyone was very friendly, so no big deal. One comment I will make is they need an extra entranceway, you know, the standard NYC double-door because it was pretty chilly outside, and thus inside.

Food was good, Margaritas were nice and strong, staff was friendly, but the music was so loud the entire time, that me and my two friends were shouting at each other. I noticed two other tables having the same struggle to hear each other, and after while, like us, stop talking ... and just look around at the customers and the staff who were dancing ... it completely ruined the experience for us, who cut our visit short because of it ... we simply couldn't enjoy our stay ... Management has to make up their mind whether they want to run a Disco, or a Restaurant, you can't have both ... background music is OK, music that does not allow your customer to hear each other is not.

Incredible, authentic Mexican food and drink offered at very reasonable prices. Try the quesadillas and the jalapeno margarita. Service was fantastic! This is one of NYC's best-kept secrets which I fear isn't going to remain secret for much longer. Really a must-go!

Sophisticated, upscale cuisine featuring unique offerings not seen on the menus of most Mexican restaurants. I had the scallops, which were delicious, and my friend had the enchiladas de huitlacoche, which he loved. Margaritas were perfectly executed. Service cannot be overstated in my opinion, and the waitstaff (special shout-out to Orlando!) was friendly, knowledgeable, and highly professional. The ambiance was rustic, warm and inviting. Of special note is their gorgeous bar. I will definitely be returning and will recommend this place to others.

This used to be one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants. Not any more. The food is not at the level it used to be and the crowds are right out of fraternity row. There was a table of extremely loud women who continuously yelled and screamed. We couldn't hear ourselves think and even commiserated with the table next to us. The host did nothing but encourage these women. This is not proper etiquette for a host who obviously didn't care about anyone else's experience at the restaurant. The next table left quickly, as we did, only to have a better dinner at a restaurant nearby. Never again...
