I had the taco salad. Very good!! The corn on the cob also looks fantastic! My friend and I shared their famous cake. Very sweet but tasty!

We were hungry for some different food and remembered how good Mole was when we visited several years ago. It still is. We had a perfect Sunday lunch, including superb guacamole and a totally satisfying margarita - it was Sunday after all! Good variety of well-prepared Mexican dishes. So many "Mexican" restaurants in the US specialize in large blobs of... More

We enjoyed lunch here after an absence of several years. The guacamole served in a huge black urn with radish slices and plenty of chips is as wonderful as ever. And we also happily tucked into the Mexican quesadillas which were small folded corn tortillas filled with cheese and a choice of shredded chicken or spicy shredded pork, etc. Paired... More

This is the best mole I've had outside of the dish's birthplace of Pueblo, Mexico. The setting, service, location, and food are great. It's a bit pricey for Mexican, this 4/5.

It is hard to enjoy dinner when the tables are so close and you can't have a converaation. Having said that, the fajaitas were delicious and so was the guacamole. The beer prices are way too high even compared to other NYC restaurants. I would return only if it was a beautiful evening so I could avoid the crowds inside.

We went here around 5:00 on a Saturday, and there were many open tables. The waitress wouldn't seat us because one person from our party was running late, even though all of the tables were sitting open. Finally we got her to do it - it was just a little weird. Great happy hour deals, good margaritas, food was good.

The food is so gorgeous here that it's easy to over eat. The place is lively so don't expect a quiet dinner for two. The food is everything you'd expect from Mexican food; hot, spicy, full of gutsy flavour. The staff are attentive and friendly. We had a great meal.

Enjoyed the margarita but didn't enjoy the mole or the veggie tacos. They were jut too salty to eat. We left without finishing our food.

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
