My group was really looking forward to dining here, but unfortunately so many things were wrong. We went to try crickets, but they were out that night. The waitress failed to inform us of this until we were already sitting down and someone tried to order them. Great service can make up for a lot of things, sadly this wasn't the case. The place was probably only 1/3 full on a Tuesday night, and we had to constantly get the waitress' attention, wait for the check, change, ask multiple times for water. The food came in a timely manner, but everything else was just terribly inattentive. Second, the food. Good mexican in NYC is hard to find, but this is probably still one of my dislikes. One of the ceviches had olives in it, which I really dislike, but I also think the flavor doesn't go well. It just gives it a deli salad taste. The other one was overly sweet. And there's hardly any seafood in it at all, probably two little shrimp chopped up for $8. The carnitas were mushy. Edible, but mushy nonetheless.

Authentic Mexican food using fresh ingredients. The guac was DELICIOUS along with the rest of the food. would recommend trying the crickets for those who want to try something new.

I was surprised to find an authentic Mexican restaurant in the middle of Soho, despite the fact that The Corner is around the corner on Lafayette & Kenmare. This joint offers delicious dishes from the Mayan land, and some delicacies like crickets in the menu. The spicy chiplotle hot chocolate is a highlight. The bad part is that everything comes is tiny (not small but tiny) serving portions, that do not compensate for the high prices. A tiny taco goes for $6. Really? I ended up paying $50-something for 6 tapas. Not nice. I liked the music and in general the atmosphere and the decoration. A good marketing trick to succeed in NYC.

The guacamole here is really yummy. The chips were a little hard for my liking. I had a tostada which was good. Service here was really good. I loved their mango prosecco drink.

Ordered the lunch special to go, which was 100% worth it. I cannot handle spicy foods, but the menu was so good that I ate it anyway, red pepper flakes and all. The Hidalgo soft taco was very flavorful. The Campeche was my favorite ceviche and the Sonora, the only pita dish on the menu, is my overall favorite! Keep in mind, service is pretty slow unless you tell them to expedite your order.

Came here for lunch at noon during the weekend, the place must have just opened since there was nobody but us in the restaurant. EVERYTHING that we ordered was awesome. We got three tapas each, I got the Colima (raw tuna on a tostada), Zacateca (sirolin and cheese on tostada) and the Papa con Chorizo quesadilla. They use fresh ingredients and hand make their tortillas, you can really taste the freshness. Service was a bit slow considering we were the only ones there but our waiter was nice and made sure that we were taken care of. I'd definitely go back. They even have a takeout counter up front.
