    If cooking is an artform, then, Frida Kahlo would be proud of this aptly named Mexican gem of a restaurant located under the imposing monoliths which make up the jagged skyline of Hudson Yards. Art was everywhere. From the beautiful smile of our welcoming hostess to our wonderful waiter “Chris with the Pearl Earring." His deft guidance through an enticing list of recommendations while never overstepping a respect for our final opinions was particularly professional and refreshing to experience. Highlights included the delicious guacamole and chips (crispy and salty … very hard to find!) and “ARRACHERA” STEAK. Truly, the meat had been marinated so thoroughly its flavors melted in your mouth. Service was swift and well-paced. Dessert of flan with dried fruits was stunningly original and a very tasty finish to our meal. The perfect mix of smooth and rich in every bite. We were totally sated. And yet the final act of generosity included a fine dessert wine, so golden in color, van Gogh himself would have been star struck! Excellent meal, beautifully appointed room with Christmas decorations … a fine way to kick off the season, have a pre-theater “Shed” dinner … or visit as a late-night destination! Bravo!

    A perfect evening. I was hosting relatives from out of town. They were blown away by their experience,and i was proud to have taken them there. The hospitality was genuine and warm while the service was impeccable. Robin our server was a class act. The culinary work was an utter delight on all the courses, and my guests raved about the delicate flavors that i had to come and celebrate my anniversary. It was so lovely to leave a restaurant feeling well nourished instead of just stuffed. We will be back!

    Great place, nice vibe and wonderful service. Food was good-guacamole variety interesting and tasty. Margarita Delicious. We had sea bass and pork loin both delicious. Will return - a bit of an out of the way location but great option before heading to the shed.

    Went for brunch for our anniversary before going to Sleep No More two blocks away. My hubby is vegan and loved the plant based tacos. The Kahlo & Rivera guac was one of the best we ever had. My seafood tostada was delish with a solid amount of lobster. The decor was lovely and service very good (little slow to take our order but we weren’t in a rush). They surprised us with bubbly for our anniversary 🥂 which was lovely!

    It is a fun lovely new restaurant, in the general Chelsea area and close walking distance from several galleries. Service was excellent, the food was good, lighting and general ambiance warm and inviting and on a Saturday night the atmosphere was very energized.

    Beautiful Frieda-inspired space with elevated Mexican cuisine. ( Think fish, and many seasoning-forward dishes. Nary a rice and beans platter anywhere.) Inventive mock tails, friendly and knowledgeable service (thank you, Chris!) We will definitely be back.

    We had a fantastic experience at Kahlo for a mid-week date night. The Instagram-worthy styling of the space is absolutely gorgeous, and they took a lot of care with little details that highlight the restaurant’s namesake, Frida Kahlo. The dishware matches the decor, with a mix of more natural stoneware and cut glass bowls and cups, and heavy-bottomed scotch glasses. Service was friendly and prompt, and each course was timed just right. Cocktail recommendations were on point, and I’d go back for drinks and apps with friends in a heartbeat. The Mr. Xoloti cocktail with chilis and mezcal was perfectly spicy (if you like spicy flavors!) without being overwhelming, and I really enjoyed the Frida cocktail as well - refreshing, light, and very drinkable. The food, though, was the real standout. Favorites included the flavor-packed Aguachile, Tuna Tostadas topped with caviar, and the “Arrachera” Steak. We will definitely return for dinner, and I’m looking forward to a girls night out here, too - the perfect backdrop for cute pics with the bonus of very tasty eats and excellent service! I imagine it will quickly become a spot to see and be seen.

    We had a 5pm dinner before Straight Line Crazy at The Shed, perhaps accounting for the very reasonable noise level. For this type of cuisine, it really was excellent - fresh and tasty, with delicious margaritas and excellent service.

    It was my husband’s birthday and we just saw a play at The Shed…. This turned out to be a great restaurant—bright, cool Mexican and Frida Kahlo-themed decor with Dio de Los Muertos gear still up, in the same neighborhood…Drinks and food were superb! —guacamole and chips were fresh and good as was the corn salad—I had the Bronzini fish which was brilliantly prepared—everyone loved the food—other fish and chicken dishes..! They brought out a festively decorated chocolate cake for my hubby… The server was lovely, on point and knew the menu. Staff could not have been nicer! Nancy NYC

    went here based on a local recommendation- This place is a fortune- Food is very expensive and average. Drinks are about $20- Our bill came and is was $130- for two people and we split 1 appetizer and one entree and each had a drink- I wouldn't mind if I thought the food was great but it was just okay

    Placed a reservation to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday after visiting Kahlo a few weeks earlier. At my first visit, I was very pleased with the attentive server which added to the atmosphere and overall experience. Unfortunately this time we were left unattended numerous times, having to ask or wave the server ourselves for orders and the get the check. The food was good but other then that this experience was very disappointing. I don't think I would revisit Kahlo again.
