Lapin and I came here for dinner one night when our other dinner plans didn't pan out. We were able to make last minute reservation and didn't wait long to be seated. There weren't many people there when we went and most of the people were at the bar. Which was nice because Lapin and I got a lounge area to ourselves. Our waitress was a nice in the beginning and slowly became a horrible experience to deal with. At first she came in to check in with us after we place our order (don't come here if you are short on time because they took almost 30 minutes for us to get someone to take our order) after that, she was no where to be found -- getting the check was a 45 minute ordeal. We ordered Chicken Tinga Quesadilla($14), which was okay. It had a bit of weird taste and was a bit soggy by the time it got to us. Lapin got the Tuna on Crack ($16) which he enjoyed. We shared an order of Guacamole ($10) which was okay, our favorite so far has been at Rocco's Tacos. And we got one order of Chicken Tacos ($9) and one pulled Pork Tacos ($9), which were enjoyable but were soggy and the tortillas broke apart very easily. I feel though, for $9 for two tacos was a bit on the high end especially since it didn't come with anything else. I also ordered the Jumbo Lump Crabcakes ($14), which were okay. Lapin ordered a Mexican beer off the Happy Hour special. I can't recall the name but he wasn't very fond of it. The waitress came around and asked if he wanted another order of the beer before the Happy Hour special was over, he thought since it was only $4, "Why not". Well, it turns out, that "Why Not" cost us a lot more than just $4. The waitress didn't put in the order until much later after the Happy Hour was over but she didn't mention when she bought the beer over. When we got the check, we saw we were charged full priced for both beers because she said we missed the Happy Hour special. If that was the case, why didn't you tell us that there was a special and shouldn't you as our waitress who wants a good tip come over and check with us if we still want the beer at a different price point that previously agreed on? When we mentioned it, she said there was nothing she could do and that it wasn't her fault (and this is why you only got a 16% tip -- which in IMO we were being generous). Lapin enjoyed his food and I agree some dishes were better than others. But NYC has tons of other restaurants with better service than here so we will be in no rush to return.

I recently came here with a friend and used a groupon deal for brunch and was pleasantly pleased. I honestly expected the worst based on the previous reviews but the service was actually great and they did not treat us differently because we had a GROUPON! LOL We were seated by the window in a cozy corner and were allowed to take our time ordering. For drinks I had a mojito and the Teqa Iced tea while my friend had a mango margarita. I loved both of my drinks and was disappointed that I could not tolerate another. For our meal i had the steak with eggs while my friend had their burger and we both thought the food was delicious! This was a great spot for brunch but if driving -parking is not the greatest and the area is very busy. Id definitely return to Teqa in the future-yum!

One of my best friends and I usually grab lunch together at this spot. We typically order the hibiscus cocktails, cactus tacos, and guacamole. All of those offerings are good, nothing more nothing less. The service is usually fine and the atmosphere is especially nice during the day time when light shines through all the big open windows. I would return for another meal, but probably not very often.

I went to Teqa during Cinco De Mayo and boy, was it a party. The music was great, the people were trendy and the food and drinks were awesome. I had both the Tommy’s Margarita and the Pomegranate Margarita and they were strong and very very good. And they’re tequila selection is to die for. I had the Lobster Guacamole, Tuna On Crack tasted like it was laced with crack it was so good (lol), and the jumbo crab cakes that were good. The thing that stole the show was the atmosphere, it was fun and the DJ (yes, a live DJ) had me dancing in my seat. I’m definitely going back to Teqa next Cinco De Mayo.

Absolutely HORRIBLE!!! I live in Murray Hill and this place is awful. Poor service and very rude uninterested and slow workers who look like it pains them to be there. It's always empty inside and I'm guessing this is the reason why. It's not an inviting place to go to whatsoever. The food portions are so tiny and plain boring. The menu does not have much on it and they are always out of the things that are on the menu. There are so many better options around. I would not recommend!

One of the cooler spots in Murray Hill, this Mexican joint serves up awesome short rib tacos and cocktails in a fun atmosphere. The tequila list is extensive, so do a tequila flight to sample a few.
