I've been here twice now. The first time it was very crowded and I was waited on by a manager while sitting at the bar. I can sum up that experience in that drinks took forever to receive. Food was pretty good and prices rather high for what you get. Tonight I decided to try again (with a friend) and this time it was early, 5:30, so it was not busy yet. The waitress (I believe her name was Emily) had the personality of a wet rag. I even caught her roll her eyes after asking us if we wanted dessert. This place has great potential but I think they need new management to put some spark in their staff. There are a lot of people working at less expensive places that do a better, friendlier job that would probably appreciate the opportunity to work there.

Snappy waiters and spicy margaritas make this a much-discussed yet often crowded Midtown joint. Prices are steep, however, but that should be expected when there's a rooftop involved. Particularly on pleasant Friday evenings there is a long wait to take the elevator up if you don't arrive early. I'd skip the guacamole: The portion is far too small for its $9 price tag.

A fun, discreet Mexican fusion spot near Grand Central with lots of great food and drink at a reasonable price. Grab a tasty margaritas lined with chili salt to go with your chips and freshly made lime-infused guacamole, or perhaps an exuberant Horchata delivered in a Parrot cup that delivers a creamy yet subtle texture. Of course the experimental tacos are hard to resist also, with variants like Moroccan Lamb on Naan or Korean Beef with kimchi being the stand-out winners. However don't expect substitutions since everything on the menu is prepared as is stated on the menu. Also, the crowd can tend to be filled with an overwhelming amount obnoxious tourists flooding in from the hotel next door, but it's not enough to deter from the delicious food. Bottom line: All in all, a solid Mexican joint with divergent flavors that stands out compared to the monotony of other similarly themed restaurants in the city (looking at you Dos Caminos).

While overpriced, Salvation Taco is very tasty in an atraditional kind of way and has a relaxed vibe. I had one of the tortas, an asian pork number, that was simply delicious and some exceptional guacamole. If there's one other negative other than the price, it is the bizarrely long trek to the bathrooms, so give yourself some time to find it.

Service was great, the food was incredibly tasty. Great vibe in there too, really liked the layout of the restaurant. I did think it was pretty pricey compared to other places I'd dined on my trip.

Attached to a hotel (to which you will have to visit of you need to use the WC), I found solid food but the portions weren't matching the price. I was expecting a little more guacamole and chips for the $9 charge, but instead got a itty-bitty cup of guacamole...and no tomatoes?! Nevertheless it was tasty and the flavor was definitely there. The tortas on the other hand are pretty good and a better sized portion considering how the guac was positioned. But if you have any special requests for your dish, leave it at the door... Because they don't do that. What a shame. I the end, I could go either way with this taco joint. My suggestion, if you go, just stick with the tacos that they are known for ;)
