Excellent Mexico City cuisine. The employees are enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I highly recommend the mole verde.

Extremely expensive and they can't even split a check. Do not come here with a large party, you will be disappointed and angry.

Authentic Mexican food and happy hour drinks yes please! I can't begin to describe how flavorful the food was and how nice the staff are! Im not a mushroom fan but the Quesadillas De Huitlacoche - you can hardly taste the mushrooms and they give you 3 I ate one of my friends. I had the Esquites and at first corn, mayo and cheese seems a little iffy but it was delicious!

Move over taco truck..... This is the most authentic Mexican food. If you want a real taste of Mexico, this is it.

Do I have to give one star? I went to enjoy a birthday dinner with my mother and family. I mentioned to the manager on our way in that it was her birthday, and after spending well over $400 on the meal for 4 of us, we had a simple request for a modification on a dish. (It was not an unreasonable or odd request-could have easily been accommodated.) We were told by the manager that there was no way that they could do this and took it to a whole new level of rude with his continued comments, eye-rolls and disrespect. I could go into the details, but long story short- WE WILL NEVER RETURN. Oh, and nothing for her birthday either. Service is just as important as the food. Ryan- you are not capable of providing good service- you suck!

Christina, We don't have a Ryan or a male manager at Cuchara. We do lots of modifications to dishes and we bring a cake to the birthday person (plus we sing!) You got our name wrong... :)

While the service forgot about our table after we were sat, the food and our second server made up for it. Had the house margaritas, pollo tinga tacos, and spicy shrimp. ExcelWhile the service forgot about our table after we were sat, the food and our second server made up for it. Had the house margaritas, pollo tinga tacos, and spicy shrimp. Excellent flavors all around. The portions of the shrimp dish and it's accompaniments were quite small, but very tasty. Chicken tacos were a knockout and very filling too. Our waiter was great and made up for the delay by providing the table with a round of tequila shots, excellent choice that was very smooth. I'll likely stick with the delicious appetizers (more than one) and the cocktails on my next visit.
