Ate here for an early dinner in the 'cafe' section and really liked it... Flavours are full and strong, yet delicately balanced (we had the corn, quesadillas, and two different taco's). Everything tasted really fresh and was well cooked. Reasonable value too. The cafe area...More

In a nutshell, nice food, too dark, overpriced, great selection of tequila... but please don't practically come running after your customers when they haven't 'quite tipped' 20%. I appreciate its customary over there but NOT mandatory.

I visited in a recent trip to New York. I ordered my meal to go, and even though there was some delay, it was completely worth it. The staff was really nice, even though it was incredibly crowded. I went to the one in 2nd...More

It's been a while but La Esquina is still going strong. Once you go down the stairs you are enveloped in a sexy atmosphere where good libations and fare will make you look like a rock star with you date or group.

Make a reservation and prepare yourself for an experience of a lifetime. A must-do when in NYC. Do yourself a favour and order a margarita pitcher, the tortilla soup, and start with the chips, queso (TO DIE FOR), quac, and pico do gallo. Can't wait...More

We stopped in for drinks and a snack. The grilled corn was the best I have had. Margaritas were great too.

Fernando is the best waiter. He attended to our every need, the QUESO is amazing and the margaritas are phenomenal!

This place hires dodgy staff, and they DOUBLE charged both myself and another friend in our party. Neither of us signed off on these charges but they have proceeded to take over $170 from me despite my bill and receipt only being $70. For this...More

SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of
Houston) is now one of the premiere shopping
destinations in the world. Housing everything from the
most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you
won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated
shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with
big-name stores and people during the day, while
Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to

Hi there. You double charged both me and another one of my guests, without authorisation. This is illegal and unless you contact me for a refund I will report you to the police. Very dodgy.
