The vibe was good... we had a reservation for 3pm on a Sunday & the guy at the door at the street level maybe thought he was being funny because he told is the brunch menu was over & they were serving dinner. So we all bought an individual drink at the bar ($14 cocktails) while we waited for our table to be ready only to find out the $29 unlimited cocktails for 90 mins was still being served. Obviously we were annoyed at having spent $14 on that first cocktail.
One friend also had a hair in her food & another had the doughnut balls which was still raw in middle. Not bad, but not a great experience. Wouldn’t revisit.

The DJ was insanely loud. Not the music he was playing, it was the yelling into the microphone every 45 seconds or so. It gave everyone a headache. The music he played was okay though.

This is not rooftop dining. This is a club on a roof that happens to serve food

I would definetly go again. Nothing stood out to seperate it from other resturants. I would love to try the big taco on a taco tuesday but I'm not sold that this is the one and only mexican place for me yet.

Down to earth,
Chill and fun atmosphere!
Food and drinks are delish!
Frozen margarita and guac to start,
We picked three sides, they made it a good deal one side for $7 or three sides for $15.
Avocado toast and the avocado and burrara cheese salad were great! They give you good portions.
Also there is all you can drink mimosa, white or red sangria during 90 minutes for $25
Crowd is mixed younger and middle age people. Excellent for bigger groups.

Food is good. Have the tacos. Service is good too however they lost our credit card for a minute. Noise level super loud it’s hard to talk to the person across the table. They have more sunny spots than shaded areas to eat so they give you cool hats to wear which is useful. The restaurant is a sun worshipers heaven. Non sun lovers stay away. It’s was just a okay experience however I’ll never go back.

Service was great, smiles, very attentive.
The food was amazing. The only thing I wish they had bottle service, not to crazy about the margaritas, I personally found them too sweet, besides that my gusto and I had an amazing time

Cantina's atmosphere was exciting and lively, the food was amazing, and the view was gorgeous! I brought my boyfriend to brunch for his birthday and he loved it. Try the Mac and cheese carbonara:)

We had the chicken nachos and I wish the chips were larger because it became very messy. Also the drinks were very weak, like watered down. I even asked for my Margarita to get more alcohol and I said I would pay. The waiter said ok and when he returned with our drinks he stated he it’s strong now, but when I drank from it and it was the same very very weak. We did like the atmosphere.

Cesar403 was attending us with great care and made sure my mother’s special day went absolutely smooth! He was very well mannered and kind ! Definitely very informative about the menu and any questions we had. The music was awesome! The place was exactly what I expected! It brought my mom fond memories about her home back in Mexico...down from the glass bottles Coca Cola to the scraped old style chairs still maintaining its beautiful colors! Thank you so much to your team at cantina! Thanks for our family picture. Credits to Cesar !!!

Restaurant was advertised as open so we walked there from herald square to get there to find out that they were closed. No sign posted on the door and called multiple times to try to get someone to answer. Someone finally answered and said management decided to close early and all reservations were called and informed. There was a large group of people outside waiting for the same answer as we were.
Turn off opentable if you aren’t open

We made a reservation for four at 8 pm. During the day we were called and informed that closing would be at 10 pm. For us no problem. We went by subway and walked about 15 minutes to get there. When we arrived at 8 pm Cantina was closed??!!
Because they called me in the afternoon to inform me about their closing i called them back on my cell Phone and they said that they were closed.
So i asked them why didn't you call me about that, it would have saved us the walk!
Another couple of two was also there for an 8 pm reservation and they also didn't get a call and walked away to another place!
I don't recommend this place!

Wish I could legit give this place 0 stars. Absolutely DISGUSTING. Walked into a crowded foyer with the stickiest floor known to mankind. So sticky that I thought the floor was going to pull the soles off my shoes. Was then “greeted” by the nastiest hostess of my life. She finally showed us to our table where we waited about 10 mins to be greeted by our server. We sat and stared at the obstructed view of construction next door. What a pathetic joke of a NYC “rooftop”. We proceeded to each order a drink($17 margaritas) that were poured in disgusting and foggy PLASTIC short glasses. The kind you would find at a table in a club. Just pathetic. We then asked for the check and left because we were so grossed out. You couldn’t pay me enough to return. Don’t go.

It was a great atmosphere and the staff were so nice. This rooftop restaurant is perfect for get togethers or birthday celebrations. Also I really enjoyed the performance of the singer and the violinist.

The ambience and setting was honestly better than the food. I've had much better Mexican food elsewhere. I enjoyed the vibes. The service was OK but everyone was super nice. There's live music that was amazing. I would come back for a birthday or special event.
