    Always great! We've been many times and love bringing friends here. You can't go wrong on the cocktail menu and the moles are such decadent experiences every time.

    Love this place! They are very consistent in service and the quality of the food. They utilize reserved signs for people who took the time to book, and always have great recommendations. This is my 4th time here and it was as great as the first, definitely recommend!

    Food was great service though not so much. The waitress took my plate from the table without asking if I had finish yet just grab the plate and go and I haven't finish eating yet. And I believed the food no matter what how good was it it was over-priced. Not going back there anytime soon.

    Great meal. Great service. They even turned the music down for us because we had members in our party who use hearing aids and blocking out the ambient noise was difficult for them. Perfect all around.

    We went with a group of vegetarians. There are many tasty options on the menu. The one carnivore said his pork tacos were some of the best he has had. Portion sizes are large. Drinks were very good and came in a variety of fun glassware; their happy hour looks great too. The wait staff was extremely attentive. We came on Monday night and it was more than half full the whole time. Will definitely be coming back.

    The food and margaritas were absolutely delicious. The only thing we weren't crazy about was the dessert. It was supposed to be churro pudding but tasted more like raisin cake.

    Food was outstanding. There wasn’t a dish that stood out over the others. The ceviche wasn’t too citrusy. The mole Oaxaca was sweet. Book a reservation before the NY Times raves about this one. One of my favorites in NYC. Each plate was made with love. The cocktails are also great.

    The food is delicious! My only critique is that a female back waiter was condescending towards us when removing my plate to make room for my main dish and giving us to-go containers. I also work in food service, so I know how frustrating customers can be; we didn't say anything to her, but she gave off a weird vibe and tone.

    The most delicious mole dishes ,and shrimp tacos.Gorgeous presentation and flavors. We fought over The beef short ribs with mole -memorable. The watermelon margarita , jalapeño cucumber margarita and mezcal flights were perfect for a late May early dinner-we ate in their pretty outdoor enclosure.

    The bartender was really backed up, so our drinks didn't come until I was almost done with my dinner. The food was excellent. They also gave us 2 of the biggest shots of tequila at the end on the house.

    A neighborhood favorite! Such a treat having excellent Oaxacan food in Astoria. You can't go wrong with their enchiladas or beef short rib. Their chips and salsa are ridiculously fresh and taste. The grilled octopus appetizer gives the greek restaurants a run for the money. I will say, skip the tacos. Get tacos other places, you're here for the mole and entrees!

    First off, before sitting down, the lady that showed us the table told us we can only dine from 5-630. Who says that?! No need to rush clientele like that. We were seated in a corner on top of a speaker and the music was LOUD. Couldn’t have a convo the entire night with my date. The food was great and our waitress Cindy amazing and attentive.

    As always, delicious food and margaritas. The noise level was higher than I remembered, but we were happy to see that the restaurant was so busy. I had the short rib which was outstanding. Everyone else had tacos - all got raves.
