                                                      Really nice ambience. It was not packed on a Saturday afternoon. The food was delicious, though expensive and small in portion size. Staff was very friendly.

                                                      Originally they had us for an outdoor table setup by the garbage cans. They said we can move indoors but it was so uncomfortable loud we couldn’t hear each other. Food was ok, which makes it very pricey for just ok food.

                                                      This was a pleasant surprise! We went before a concert at MSG, so the location was perfect. We had some delicious, interesting drinks. The apps were the tuna tostadas, which were incredible, and the Diablo prawns, which had a lovely sauce on them. We tried the mango guacamole which was refreshing. Finally, two of us had tacos, and one had sea bass. All were perfectly portioned and very fresh seafood. Most important, the flavors were interesting, mildly spicy, and beautifully paired. For dessert the Tres Leche cake—a perfect tipper to an amazing and different meal. We went early and the service was terrific.

                                                      Yummy food. Great cocktails. We loved the elote. The tuna tostada, the veggie tacos and the polenta bites. Our server was nice. Then a bit slow/inattentive.

Service spotty even when only ten tables occupied: orders not taken, water glasses not filled. Hostess had trouble going off script: "Could you please show me to the table? [restaurant empty]. "Would you like to sit at the bar?" "I seem to have mislaid my coat check [later found].""What is the number?"

                                                      The service is super slow and drinks come around after a while so your glass stays empty for a bit. Everyone on the staff is friendly and helpful. I love the decor and vibe with their playlist.

                                                      The food was delicious, service friendly, and décor beautiful. Prices were a bit absurd for what was given. The only items really worth the price seemed to be the steak and the empanadas as they had large portions. The tacos were extremely small leaving me wanting more, the guac for $20 was a children's portion, and a margarita cost about half the price of a decent bottle of tequila. The food was delicious, full of both familiar and new flavors, the drinks were decent but not memorable. Overall I would be skeptical to come back solely based on the price points.

Our server (who’s name i don’t recall - sorry) was incredibly helpful in guiding us when we needed help and had the perfect balance of friendly but professional! The manager, Francisco, made our evening super special with a special Mezcal toast in the end! Truly an unforgettable night! Try the Molotes, Seabass, and Arrachera (steak)!! And Mr. Xoloti cocktail is spectacular!!

                                                      The waiter was extremely nice and helpful. My boyfriend and I both got the skirt steak and we highly recommend it. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and plays fun music. Perfect spot for a date night or girls night out. However, when we finished dinner, my boyfriend and I called an uber due to the rain. We noticed he did not have a mask on him. He asked the female hostesses for a disposable mask if possible. They said no, they did not have any. I was frustrated after just spending money at this establishment, so I asked the male host or manager and he quickly got me one.

                                                      Unfortunately I was rather underwhelmed by this experience. Server forgot an item we ordered, barely visited our table, and then gave our entrees to our confused neighbors that we didn’t notice until they took the food back. Wouldn’t be too big of a deal if the food wasn’t so expensive. Oh well!

                                                      Food is amazing here. It is more than a Mexican restaurant. It has strong influences from Spain which works very well for the superb cuisine. They don't bring it up and it seldom is on any menu they hand me, but they have the best tres leches cake this side of the Atlantic. The staff need training because they don't measure up to the quality of the food. They are sorely understaffed and an investment is management which measure up to the kitchen staff will save this restaurant in our flailing economy.

                                                      We sat at the bar with the best bartenders ever.

                                                      The quality control of the Guacamole’s avocados was bad! Otherwise the food was very good yet the “premium tequila” for the Signature Margaritas was the lowest quality tequila in the market; not acceptable if the have premium in their menu

                                                      Kahlo is an amazing gem right near the Hudson Yards! This quaint restaurant is gorgeous and the drinks and food are phenomenal. Love a Mexican spot that has an eclectic choice of mezcals and tequilas. Can’t wait to go back!

                                                      My mojito at the elegant bar was terrific. The two types of made-to-order guacamole were the best I’ve ever had (one with mango relish, the other with pan fried cheese). My pollo (chicken) with mole sauce was memorably tender and tasty. The server and host were very friendly and attentive. To celebrate my friend’s birthday, they brought out a candle-adorned scrumptiously light cake con tres laches along with shots of tequila from salt-encrusted glasses, which topped off a perfect meal and experience.

                                                      Amazing little place with a great ambience. We only had appetizers, and they were ok. The lobster coctel though was amazing. We tried every cocktail on the menu, and they were all refreshing. All in all, a good place for a evening on the town.
