    We have no idea how this place has the rating it does. The "boneless" branzuni was a full bone in fish, the molcajete was terrible- completely burnt and overcooked meat that had no seasoning or flavor, the second round of drinks were terrible, seemed like the salt in the rim was bad. Service was below average but not as bad as the food.

    Tacuba is one of my favorite, most-visited restaurants. In my opinion, they've got the best margarita in New York! The food is always good, and our server Lidice went above and beyond to give us a great experience. I'm a frequent customer and highly recommend!

    Good was delicious. Couldn’t stop talking about my shrimp and grits stew. Only thing I didn’t like was the noise level. Not a quite dinner but a rowdy bar Scene. Music was very loud and then patrons screaming add to the noise.

    Having been a couple of times during lunch I expected great things when I brought my friends in for dinner. We ordered three types of tacos. The first was tasteless, the second was ok and the third kept me up all night because it was so greasy. Additionally, unbeknownst to us, the area we were seated in was being used for a party so we were rushed and told “we need this table” when I wanted to order more food. This could have been prevented by asking us if we minded leaving by 8p or asking if we wanted to wait for a table that would be available for a longer time. Can’t say I will be back.

    The food was good, but we did have a friend get immediately sick after we left. The only thing he ate that we didn’t were the enchiladas, so not sure of it was a food issue or a stomach sensitivity issue. Regardless, it’s worth noting. Also, we were sat in a corner under what felt like greenhouse lights and we were so hot. It was stifling. Almost made it hard to eat. Overall, I would go back and sit at the bar for a quick bite but not sure of it’s the best place for a relaxing meal.

    For the area it's a neat space but the food, at least what we ordered, is best left as an after thought. The tacos, specifically the pollo, had little trace of meat and was soggy with a disproportionate amount of tomato. We chalked this dinner up as an L, and won't be back.

    Service was good, there was an error on a dessert, but a quick word and it was removed from the bill. Very quick for food, but waited to bring dessert when we asked. A bit loud, and a bit hot - but that's NY in summer! Tacos were good, but not very plentiful.
