Best Mexican food in the NYC area hands-down (coming form a native Mexican ... who loves food...)
Too bad our waitress had a bad day and offered not-that-great service....

Amazing shrimp cocktail & molé, but everything is surely worthwhile. The cocktails were quite flavorful, and dessert is not to be missed. Horchata was delightful. Will return when my wallet allows!

My boyfriend and I came here last minute on a Monday night. It was such a perfect little date. The server was very sweet and explained all the specials to us. My pineapple mojito was not too sweet - it was perfect. The food came up promptly and was absolutely delicious. I’m a vegetarian so I got the Blanco Enchiladas and they were amazing. My boyfriend is Mexican and said this is the closest he’s ever come to tasting food like his mom’s authentic! The server recommended the Cheese Ice Cream for dessert and it was AMAZING. My boyfriend doesn’t have a sweet tooth and even he wanted more!

Wonderful experience all around. Craving those enchiladas again!

Excellent food and service. Cocktail hit the spot as did the food. The noise level is tough to deal with, however. But great place. Can't wait to go again.

Excellent meal at Casa Enrique. The guacamole is a must try. My wife really enjoyed her tacos (although they don’t offer flour tortillas) and my Branzino (not on menu, was chef special) was prepared immaculately. Easily one of the best tasting fish entrees I’ve ever had!

Always such a treat to go to Casa Enrique. Service is amazing, food is consistent and well...the enchiladas verde speak for themselves (AMAZING!). As Texans we are always looking for great Mexican in NYC and it’s easier said than done. Casa Enrique has become a quick favorite.

FOOD - We got the pineapple pork and fish avocado tacos which were tasty, but not mind-blowing. The carrots were very sour, and the poof of avocado droplet on the side was very messy to eat with. I guess they were trying to "elevate" the look and work with its plating, but I'm not sure it worked. Then we got the Menudo soup, that was a little too rich (very salty) for us. Again, I feel like they're trying too hard to "elevate" comfort food.

SERVICE - The waitress we not was friendly or welcoming at all. When asked to reiterate their cocktail specials, she seemed very impatient. It definitely made the experience quite unpleasant.

AMBIANCE - It's cute and cozy.

Maybe we just ordered the wrong food because we left wondering how is this a Michelin one star place?

Everything was good only issue was service particularly from the bar was a bit slow and our server only told us about appertizer specials but not entrees which we learned about from the table next to us who ordered. Overall though I did like the restaurant and I would go back.

Casa Enrique is a great restaurant: the food is excellent, the staff is friendly and helpful without being overbearing, and prices are reasonable.
The only observation I could make is about the noise. We had a table nearby where people were a little loud, and the acoustics of the room didn't seem to help.
Special mention to the cocktails, refreshing and original.

Noise level was very high but the food was wonderful. So you can either scream, or just silently contemplate the universe (or order takeaway and eat it at the Hunters Point waterfront). But it’s really all about the food, which was outstanding.

Food was very good. Service started out great and then degraded as tables filled. At least 15 minutes for drink order. Entrees brought out in middle of appetizer. If service was better I’d give it 5 stars.

We were rushed out by waiters several times, and didn't even stay for 45 minutes. I ordered a ceviche which was 21 dollars and smaller than my fist. It wasn't listed as an appetizer, and was priced as an entree. No one said anything, and it's a shame because it seemed like portions were generally generous.
