Forgot appetizer and main course came out less than 5 minutes after ordering
Service was slow and the server was rude. He would actively ignore us and passed 2-3x when we were actively looking for him before he would cater to our ask. The food was decent but for the price, you could definitely get higher quality elsewhere. Parts of the steak and eggs entree were burned (hash brown and steak). The rancheros were drench so much that it wasn’t clear where the eggs were and the sauce was so spicy (not indicated in the menu and I like spicy) that it was difficult to eat.
Tough to get a refill of tortilla chips and drinks. He upgraded the size of the guacamole without consulting us and we did not know until the bill. Average per person sans bottomless was about $35-40 (one drink not strong, one free shot from check on) splitting the guacamole and having an entree (including coffee/tea/OJ as well). Bottomless brunchers paid about $60.
The brunch entree comes with one alcoholic and one non alcoholic drink. Bottomless is an extra $18 and margs are about $13-17. You should only get bottomless if you will get more than three, drink fast, and give yourself time to nail the waiter down (they purposefully stall so you have a drink for 40-50min and the max is 2hrs).
Ambience and decor is nice. Okay for a brunch but not worthwhile to return.
The food and cocktails were enjoyable! A bit quieter than the midtown location which worked better for date night.
I put in my reservation that I would like a quiet, semi-private table since the gathering was of people who hadn't seen each other in five years. They put as at a nice table in the back, which was in a significantly quieter area. The waitress was incredibly nice and the food was good. And they let us sit there and catch up for 3 hours after we finished eating! Which really made our reunion extra special.
We usually come to the city once a year and this is one of our favorite restaurants. We recently went here and were very disappointed. They can’t even afford to have adequate air conditioning now. The manager said they weren’t expecting so many people all at once so the air will eventually catch up. In addition, guacamole now $27 for two avocados in it. My food was mediocre at best. It seems like the place only caters to 18-23 years olds now. There are plenty of other places to go for Mexican that are better food, better price and adult atmosphere.
Bachelorette dinner, had a fun attentive waiter!
Noisy, music was very loud. Guacamole was excellent, food was good. However couldn't hold a proper conversation due to noisy and music.
The food was amazing as usual. Tortilla soup never disappoints and the taquitos de pollo with sweet potato were amazing. We got 2 free shots of the prickly pear margarita from a deal we saw on the Dos Caminos Yelp page and they were sweet but very good. Chicken chopped salad was huge and delicious.
Great food. A bit loud but nice ambiance.
A fun, lively setting -- unusual to find a restaurant so vast, so clean and efficient in Manhattan; a bit corporate but has personality. Be warned, the music is rather loud and insistent -- this isn't a relaxing place by any means. What we got for brunch was good food, well prepared, if not particularly creative or mind-blowing. The guacamole is excellent but for $27 you'd expect it to be prepared tableside (it was not). The brunch deal with drink included is pretty good but the options are limited. Servers were all very friendly and went out of their way to assist my senior mom on Mother's Day, which was appreciated.
Food was excellent. Service was outstanding.
Love the chips.
In part due to its upscale neighborhood location and large seating capacity, we weren't expecting that much from Dos Caminos -- and we were wrong. From the hostess greeting through the waiter's attentive questioning and the kitchen's flexibility, we enjoyed everything. The guacamole was solid, and the mole was extremely good. The margaritas are good, in the fairway of not too strong and not too weak. The only thing we didn't love was the membership card sales pitch at the end: the waiter did it as smoothly as possible, but in an era where we have ads everywhere for everything it would have been nice to not be "pitched" after dinner. That said, we'll definitely go back. Put it on your list.
The second we were seated, the waiter came over and asked us if we would like some guacamole for the table. I said, well I think we would like to order drinks first. After we told him what we wanted, he suggested to my husband again, that we order guacamole. He agreed. When we got the bill, we saw that the guacamole and chips was $28. WHAT!!!?? That’s just absurd.
Great food, drinks and service! Looking forward to going back soon.
Food was great and tasty, service was excellent and the place looks very nice :-)
Went there for Cinco de mayo with a group of 5. Made reservations weeks in advance. It was not at all as busy as I expected. Our waiter was not very friendly, messed up two orders after we told told two times to please not put any sour scream on our entrees. Also, the table given to us for 5 was entirely too small. I didn't even have space to make my fajitas. Very hard to eat given the small table size. I came close to knocking my drink over a few times. Overall the dinner was fine despite the bad service from our waiter and the small table.
Made a reservation for 12:15 for a business lunch. The restaurant had another two tables occupied. We ordered our food within 10/15 minutes upon arriving and for some reason it took 1 hour for our food to come out. People who arrived after us received their food before we did. It’s usually not the norm for dos caminos but when you are having lunch and need to get back to work it can be annoying. I will say the manager offered us free margaritas after work...that was nice.
great food and service as always! highly recommend
Get the Guac! Loved that they custom made our guac (no onions), and it was delicious!
Squash taco, shrimp taco were faves. Churros are a must. Jalapeño watermelon margarita was delish.
Terrible service, food and drinks took a long time to arrive. I have been going to Dos Caminos for years and find the service is continuing to deteriorate. I won't be going back.
Server was not attentive. Walked by our table four times before he finally asked if we’d enjoy more wine. By that point the meal was over and we were over it. Waters sat empty as well. Missed opportunities for selling more drinks, missed opportunity fon an upsell to a large guacamole, and missed opportunity to increase check average by suggesting dessert. Food was amazing! This was our second visit, so at this point it’s a hit a miss type establishment. First time amazing food and excellent service. Second time, amazing food, disappointing service.
It was great!
Great place. Food is amazing. Decor is super pretty and suiting. One of the favorite places. Highly recommend.
The Mexican food was outstanding, but the wait staff was slow, overwhelmed and largely inattentive. Took forever to get our water refilled, and the check paid.
The vibe was amazing and so was the food
Food was excellent. Initial greeting from hostess was not very friendly. Server was polite, but appeared a little over run. Good atmosphere.
Met friends after work for a mini college reunion. It was a fun place to reconnect and catch up. Enjoyed the food, as always.
I went with my daughter and both of us agreed that was really good.
On the whole, the food was good, as always. However, while the "moderately spicy" standard guacamole is never spicy at all ()why bother referring to it as "moderate"?), this time it had no taste whatsoever.
It took forever to order, get the check & pay for the check. Food was average.
I am a frequent diner at Dos Caminos and always enjoy the variety of authentic Mexican food. It's a wonderful place for food and drink. Highly recommended
Slight hair in food. ! Ruined meal
Comfortable and friendly. Good food, great service. Good drinks. Would highly recommend for a casual night out.
Amazing food, warm atmosphere and good service. We always have a brilliant time here and visit whenever we are in NYC.
The churro pancakes are delicious!
Sat at the bar and the bartender was absolutely lovely but the food has gone way downhill. Guac was ok, not great. Fish tacos were literally not seasoned at all and tasteless. Chopped salad was inedible. Last time I went had a similar food experience and never wrote anything - they need to have a look at their kitchen.
I've been here several times for brunch. Not sure if it was because we showed up toward the end of brunch that the wait staff seemed disorganized and was downright rude.
