What Insiders Are Saying
Casa Enrique is home to the best Mexican food in New York City, and we bet you've never heard of it. Time to get acquainted with Long Island City.
This as an amazing experience for us, we loved the food, the service and the Horchata fresh water! We definitely recommend this place!
Casa Enrique deserves its Michelin stars. Everything is fantastic. I wish it were a little quieter, and I also wish that I didn't have to make special occasion reservations 4 weeks in advance. I have never had a meal there that was less than extraordinary.
Real flavors with a touch of je ne sais pas quoi that leaves your mind wondering what was that final wonderful flavor.
NO CLUE why this place has a Michelin star. Food is not remarkable anad portions are muy pequeno and expensive PLUS, they had one poor waitress handling all of the tables in one room which is just outrageous. Place was packed and I don't know how they think that one busboy and one waitress can give anyone the attention required. Chairs were some of the most uncomfortable we've ever sat in. Don't see a return trip in my future. :-(
Attentive service coupled with delicious food! The mole is excellent! Always has interesting drink specials.
Amazing food. Prefer dinner over brunch, but that's just because the carne asada is to die for. Will be back for sure!
Amazing food and good service + really good cocktail!
Restaurant is worth the Michelin grade it gets year after year. Its a combination of simple but extremely well executed dishes and cocktails. The service was excellent as well, our waiter was very knowledgeable as well. I will be definitely be coming back for sure.
Delicious & creative dishes! Well done.
Over priced Mexican food; the “cravings” and cow tongue taco were delicious but the three entrees we tried we’re underwhelming.
The food is very good and authentic Mexican and the
Watermelon margarita it was super.
The mole is to die for.
Awesome all around
FANTASTIC food and service -- but pretty loud -- like a bar -- could not hear our friends or server. Love it -- would go back. I felt like I was finally back in MEX.
Dia de las madres
Everything that arrived at the table was sublime. The dishes may have been familiar to a fan of Mexican food, but the ingredients and preparation took old friends to an utterly different level.
Food was fabulous, service wonderful and staff extremely accommodating for our special birthday celebration.
Another incredible dinner. Food is always 5 stars and we always have a wonderful time. 10/10
Excellent service, absolutely superb food, wonderful ambiance! We love Casa Enrique!
I come here at least once a month. The sopecitos with chorizo are an amazing appetizer and the mole enchiladas are to die for. If you're looking for something non-alcoholic, the Tamarind beverage is amazing. Overall this is the place to be at in Long Island City and the number 1 Mexican restaurant in all 5 boroughs!
Casa Enrique was on my radar for some time but never made it out. After our most recent trip to Playa del Carmen where we only ate at local places and away from tourist traps, we were craving authentic Mexican food and we are so happy we went! Everything looked so good on the menu and after our first dish, we knew we would be back 4 more times to try it all. Everything was great! It is a bit loud which we didn't notice until the end but just a warning if you want a quieter dining experience.
The food was excellent, but the service was definitely lacking. It did not feel like Michelin star restaurant. We felt very rushed by the servers and they kept taking our clean napkins away. The drink orders took too long to arrive.
Great service and ALWAYS outstanding food, the team is focused on making everybody enjoy the experience
Little things make a difference and expectations of a Michelin star dining experience especially. Our appetizer came before our cocktails that were ordered simultaneously. Same thing happened with our dessert and last round of drinks. The food was tasty tho.
Incredible tacos!! Absolutely loved it. Decor should be better but amazing food.
Casa Enrique was an exceptional experience! Their food was cooked well and accordingly, tasted great and arrived promptly. I especially appreciated the service that Leo provided for us as he made great recommendations and made sure our dinner was enjoyable. Overall, Casa Enrique was phenomenal. I have already recommended it to my friends. I will definitely go again.
Fantastic food, service, ambiance. Tight space but very attractive. Wonderful cocktails as well.
The food was over salted and surprise to a local like myself. The quality seems to have gone down. It was just my toddler aged daughter and myself. It took far too long to get even our guacamole - and there was almost no one in the restaurant for a 5 pm dinner reservation so that was not the reason - so long that our dinners came our minutes after the guacamole. My enchiladas were far too salty and my daughters brisket tacos - typically a big hit - were very dry and not as flavorful as on any other occasions. Disappointing dinner, especially considering how impossible it’s gotten for local neighbors to grab a bite here.
Food was excellent except for the Carne Asada tacos - bland, unexciting; a sliced of pickled carrot and a slice of carrot was the extent of it. Our waitress could have been friendlier, her attitude was the only negative in an otherwise lovely brunch.
A must try. Great food. The mole was amazing. Services was solid all the way through. The only area I feel could be improved was their deserts. We tried three different dishes, and while all were good, they weren't as mind blowing as their mole was.
This is one of the Best Mexican/Restaurants in the City. The Food was Delicious: Shrimp Cocktail & Pull Pork Tacos & Flan to finish, all accompanied w/Fabulous Red Sangria! The Service was also Excellent. Worth the Reservation!
This is my decond
Everything was delicious! The staff was super attentive and clearly cared that every patron had the best experience possible.
Excellent food. Nothing to complain, need to visit again to try more of the menu.
Hands down. Best Mexican restaruant nyc. Will go there for brunch whenever I can.
I lived in San Diego for 5+ years so I have fairly high standards when it comes to tacos and Mexican food. I'd say this is probably the best taco I've had in New York. I've tried a lot of taco spots here and it usually starts with mediocre salsa and ends with disappointment. Casa Enrique is just the opposite. Can't say it's the best taco I've ever had (Pujol in CMDX, Tacos El Gordo in TJ) but it's phenomenal for New York.
The food was very good. Okay but their prices are ridiculously high for a tiny portion. You definitely can't go hungry to this place. The drinks were amazing. I am a food blogger. The waiter seem to be rushing us out. She brung thr dessert menu before we finish out food. Then came to pick up the bill 5 secs after she left it, when she saw we wasnt ready she stood there and then decided to leave and come back. Overall their customer service was excellent starting with the host in the front, the guy that gave us water he was amazing, very friendly. Overall I will not returned just because of the high price for tiny portions.
Food is always stellar. Service is fair. Noise level is a bit too high for a lunch or dinner. The reflection of sound is crazy, and the ceiling is low. So it is hard to talk or hear with even a small amount of fellow diners.
But I still love this place!
