Another last minute decision on where to eat that ended up okay overall. They did mess up on our order and then charged us for it (which we caught too late) but the food was good overall. Excellent guac and fairly cheap margaritas that hit the spot!

Went for cinco de mayo. Drinks were on point. Food was great. However, the waitress wouldn't accommodate my song request. Space is also very limited.

This the best Mexican restaurant I've been to in the US. If only they served menudo. Second best guacamole in North America -- my gringa wife's is the best, which I'm planning to sell and retire. Very authentic Mexican fare with friendly staff. Pace is slow, but just right. Try the chilaquiles off the menu. Good margaritas, but not great.... More

Decided to try a Mexican place not called Hells Kitchen and was a bit disappointed. We ordered the top shelf margarita and it wasn't very good. Service was good but tables are right next to each other... which did offer some comic relief but also made for awkward surroundings if you wanted to have a serious conversation. Food was decent.

Came here on a whim last night and was pleasantly surprised. We were seated right away despite not having any reservations.The place is loud and has a lively crowd. Servers and owner were extremely nice. The frozen margaritas are amazing and the guacamole was honestly the best I've ever had. The three cheese quesadilla is also worth trying. Very reasonable...

Top shelf margarita with Patron Silver was delicious. We're from San Diego, CA where good Mexican food is everywhere. Patron is a small space but big on flavor. The chili relleno was excellent: fresh chili, not too much cheese, nicely presented. The veggie tacos were delicious too. Also enjoyed talking to our waitress, Gresa from Kosovo. She's very nice and... More

Having had steak or burger for the first few days of my latest trip to NY we decided to go for something different. The staff at Patron were very friendly and helpful and the food was good, not amazing but good and we definitely left feeling satisfied and full. The frozen margaritas are excellent. We had more than one and... More

Stopped for a drink on an unseasonably warm January day (60 degrees!). They could not make me a Paloma so I settled for a margarita. Most places I've been to during this trip don't have a big tequila selection- this place is unique - choices! But to make a good Margarita you need to have a good recipe.... Good bar... More

We stumbled on Patron during a trip to NYC during the heat wave of 2012-lured in by $5:00 margaritas-we have made it a focal point of every subsequent trip- great food, great drink and some of the best and friendliest servers I have ever come across.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
