My wife and I love margaritas. We are sort of connoisseur. This place makes amazing margaritas top 10 that I've had in the city. The bartenders clearly pay attention to their craft.

Being from Texas I have a high standard for my Mexican food and these guys did a pretty good job. I had the Chile relleno which was cheese and cooked very well. I also enjoyed the plantains as well. The carnitas was a bit oily...More

Good, fresh ingredients in tapas-sized dishes, so prepare to order more than you might expect. This is a great modern Mexican, with great Margaritas - quite noisy when full as everyone is quite packed-in but well worth a visit.

Concierge at the Hampton Inn in Dumbo recommended this restaurant to us. We walked over, takes about 15 minutes, and it’s certainly worth it. They have a really neat patio in the back for outdoor seating. We sat inside with a table in front of...More

Noisy, trendy, crowded, yet the staff remains very friendly and smiling. Delicious South American food, with tasty -hot - new flavors. Try the seafood dishes, they’re out of this world. Reasonable prices for Dumbo: probably around 30$/head all included.

This place is very small. So small i figured there must be additional seating somewhere. The decor is crisp. Not your typical Mexican restaurant design. Think upscale. The food was not cheap but it was tasty. Guacamole was creamy and flavorful. Caritas and fish tacos...More
