The server was very friendly. Food came quickly. Love the coconut pancakes!
It took 45 minutes for our food to come, and while dining with 3 children, their meals came out last. From the time the first dishes were delivered, to the final dish was 10 minutes (not exaggerating). Additionally, one of the children complained that the chicken didnt taste good - upon further inspection, his was not cooked (pink/raw in the middle) and the meat smelled rancid.
We always knew the service was slow and moderate at best, but never had such issues with the actual food. Will not be going back.
Good food, the coconut pancakes were fantastic! My margarita on the rocks was awful - very sweet but tasted like fake sugar. I didn’t drink it but ordered a frozen margarita (much better). The server didn’t even ask if something was wrong with my drink. We also asked for our check and had to wait about 20 minutes and ask again. Overall the food was good, some drinks good, service just ok.
Bustling and delicious menu!
Fabulous evening during the latest NYC heatwave. They were so accommodating and attentive. Food and service were top notch. Drinks were excellent and setting is lovely. FISH TACOS were superb!
Great music, good food, nice ambiance and location.
Food was great but I had reservations for 5pm and me and my family weren’t seated until 20 minutes later so that was the downside of it me and my family were just waiting by the bar which wasn’t a good experience . Once seated we ate and enjoyed our selves .
My waiter was the kindest and most exceptional to my family.. ty!!!
Fantastic place!! Amazing food, amazing margaritas and service is great! Brunch or dinner this place is a wonderful!
The tacos were outstanding!!! The soft shell and crunchy shell combination is to die for.
Really nice, casual spot for tex mex style food. Love coming here. Close to the water. Outside seating can get very windy. always a lot of kids/strollers so be prepared for the occasional kid having a meltdown.
It was great. Food was excellent and the atmosphere was awesome.
Someone recommended this restaurant and it turn out to be fantastic!
Although the location was great the drinks were terrible. We went for bottomless drinks and the food was good but the drinks gave us headaches immediately. Not sure what was in the margaritas but it didnt have that lime taste and the headaches hit quickly. Had migraines all night long after this.
Bellinis and mimosas were also warm.
Found a long hair in my food. Waitress didn’t seem phased by it (guess it’s a normal occurrence?) And they didn’t offer to replace the dish, or attempt to make it right.
And, we STILL got billed for that plate that I didn’t end up touching!!!!
I am from Texas and love Tex-Mex as well as authentic Mexican food. This restaurant provides neither. I've had straight from the head barbacoa con seso, and never have I ever tasted even a touch of sweetness. The barbacoa in the enchiladas tasted candy sweet as did my wife's corn and chicken salad. The fact we left a third of a pitcher of margaritas on the table should be very telling.
Food was great ! The music was a little loud and hear anything the waiter is saying or hear you with.
Nice place and staff is very attentive. Food is good and taste fresh. Will definitely go back.
so, if you're going to do pulsed vouchers its great. What you need to do then is actually abide by the terms of the deal. All inclusive except tax and tip...yet they brought us a bill for 85$?
Wont be back.
A little smaller inside than I expected especially the tables and they didnt put out chips and salsa on the tables as most Mexican Restaurants I've been to. The food was decent and fairly priced. The staff was nice.
I was really excited to try skinny’s for brunch as i had been here before randomly on a Saturday afternoon and the food was amazing however i was quite disappointed. Maybe they were new to brunch I’m not sure but my friend and I arrived and stood at the front for several minutes before we were seated. The restaurant was so hot with no air or fans running. Then once we were seated again no one acknowledged us and we again sat for at least 20 min before anyone even came and said anything. We had a Pulsd deal and got bottomless and we literally got 1 drink every 30 min as the service was poor. On top of that the food was mediocre. I absolutely would not return as there are so many more amazing places in LIC for brunch
Great little spot. Great food and drinks. Great service. What else could you want.
Came here for Valentine’s Day. It was so intimate yet lively. Staff was extremely kind. I love the fact that it wasn’t packed and tables were sufficiently far apart from one another. Their tacos are so delish. Always a pleasure everytime I go.
Great find. They took really great care of us. Very kind and attentive staff. Food was delicious, very well-created and hearty. Thank you. ❤️
Excellent service and delicious food. Good atmosphere and variety of music.
Very outstanding and exceptional service.. food is amazing and the ambience very cozy
