The service is incredible. Waiters and servers are timely with their check-ins with your table. If you are looking for a quiet place to dine then seek elsewhere. We loved the ambience. Great music and great food. The fig dessert was yummy! Will definitely visit again

Love this restaurant! The classic margaritas are fantastic as well as various other drinks on the menu. We still had to wait even with a reservation due to the Friday night crowd, but the experience was well worth it. The broad menu makes it a great option when dining with a small group.

I made reservations for dinner on New Year’s Eve for 8 pm. I had been here once before for my birthday and had a great time so I figured it would be fun for New Year’s Eve (and one of the few restaurants that didn’t have a pre fix menu only). We were seated right away and ordered a few drinks and guacamole to start. We also ordered the queso fundido for the table and split the enchiladas suizas. Everything was delicious!! Service was great- everyone was very attentive. We had a round of tequila shots at the end and our waiter suggested a tequila we hadn’t heard of before but absolutely loved it!
The following day I was running errands in the neighborhood with my sister and we were in the mood for a snack and a refresco so we figured we would stop by again! Glad we did because they had a great happy hour until 7 pm! We each had a glass of wine for $8 and split the nachos ($11). Great place and fun atmosphere! Will definitely be back again.

If you want something more intimate, ask for a table in the back. It’s much quieter but still has a great vibe. Up front is also cool though just a much higher noise level so depends on what you’re looking for...

Understaffed for a Saturday brunch, food was fine but limited brunch menu and pricey drinks for this establishment.

Happy hour ends at 6pm which isnt feasible for any working New Yorker to make it to, and it was pretty overpriced for Mexican food in nyc without said happy hour specials. Probably wouldn’t consider again unless it was a special occasion because the food and drinks were good just not for that price point when you can get decent enchiladas and margaritas on just about every corner.

First the service was outstanding. Sasha our server was friendly, attentive and her recommendations were perfect. The guava margarita was delicious. The food was fresh and very good. Try the chocolate cake with ice cream. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was because the portions were small and the price was expensive. However, a must try. And ask for Sasha.

Outdoor seating at this spot is fantastic! So much quieter than the rest of the City. This mexican restaurant has the BEST NACHOS IN MANHATTAN. No joke. I have had them all. These are the best.

Always tasty choices: from mezcal fluent bar to creative menu. Seating choices too- we enjoyed lower tables, yet have had bigger birthday party group upstairs. While the bar atmosphere is sometimes just right!

I love the brunch at this spot. Fish tacos, Avocado toast with 2 perfectly cooked poached eggs....yumm! Portion sizes are great and 8 dollar cocktails pack a punch. I only wish they had a few more tequila free options for brunch cocktails.

Great dinner at La Contenta Oeste. As usual, the Nachos were delicious. Our Entre of shrimp enchiladas was so tasty and the portion was large. The only thing that would have made the evening better was the ability to hear my dinner-mate as the noise level got louder as the evening progressed.

Long period between the waiter checking in with us for more drinks. Bus boy kept spilling huge amounts of water on the table when he refilled our water glasses with no apology or clean up.

Bathrooms were the sort you would find attached to a changing room at a beach, they were obviously not checked often.

Food amazing! Drinks great!

The guacamole wasn’t the best value. $14 for a cereal bowl of guacamole with a dozen tortilla chips. Had to ask for more to finish the guacamole.

We’ll return, but it would be nice if the staff spent less time refilling water glasses and more time asking if we wanted more alcoholic beverages.
