    Everything about the short rib enchilada is so tasty! I loved the roasted ranchero sauce. Also the ambience is nice. The main restaurant is "hidden"'upstairs while downstairs is a bar.

    This place is amazing. Go here. Wait for the roof. Get the Frozen Margs. Get the guac and the shrimp fajitas. The bartender is awesome: be nice and get hooked up with a sweet tequila flight. 😊☀️🍹

    The food is delicious and the VIEW is spectacular. Cocktails are not that great; go for basic cocktails, nothing fancy.

    View is really sick from roof. Food is prob best mexi in area, similar in quality to calexico. A bit spicier in general. Service was mediocre. Also, bartender guy downstairs is a dick. He sucks

    The bar usually doesn't have a wait. Your back is to the view but still fun.

    Praise the roof! This rooftop restaurant is awesome - the entrance is at the end of the bar if you accidentally get lost in there.

    I had the canaries asada and it was really good. Very light and not overwhelming. Loved the mango salad and pesto cashew sauce. Portion size is little but that's fine with me :)

    One of the best views in the city. If there's a wait for a table on the roof ask if you can go up to the bar.

    Chicken Enchiladas were perfectly flavored. Big enough portion to be shared. blood orange marg downstairs was better than the drinks upstairs. View on middle floor just as good as top floor.

    Ask for the home made hot sauce. Comes in a Corona bottle and has a nice kick to it.

    Pro-tip: Blood orange margarita is delicious! Served in a pint glass and only available downstairs. Get it yourself and bring it to the dinner table!

    Rooftop is great, and love the ambiance, but food is nothing to write home about. It's ok - but I've had better tacos. I'd go back for drinks and the view, but not if I'm hungry & looking for food.
  • Marianna S.
    Amazing margaritas. Ask to be seated on the top floor, the view is beautiful!

    FEED T-REX! Very few Data East pinball machines in the city. Jurassic Park also features Wayne Knight on the playfield (how can you not love that)! And a classic Bally Star Trek.

    Great jukebox and a beautiful view of lower Manhattan from a rarely seen angle. Perfect on summer nights when the windows are open -- like being in a small town tucked up against the glittering city.

    The view doesn't come close to making up for the mediocre, overpriced food and sub par service. Check out Calexico down the road for some good Mexican.

    Children need encouragement. So if a kid gets an answer right, tell him it was a lucky guess. That way, he develops a good, lucky feeling.

    This place is not good. The food is nothing special and the service was delivered like the staff all smoked a bowl before starting their shifts. The view is nice but there are other spots.

    The views that really make it special. Whether you're eating in the main dining room, or upstairs on the deck (covered and heated in the winter), you get a gorgeous eyeful of Southern Manhattan.
