Success! Thanks for posting your review of Mama Mexico. You’ve done the world some good today.

sneaky guacamole

We asked for a specific table and were taken to a totally different one in the back corner. Not to mention there was barely enough room to even walk down the narrow isle so don't expect the mariachi band to come play for you. Right away we were asked if we would like some guacamole, not knowing it would cost a waping 11$ for a small ""rock"" filled hole. Our waiter spoke barely any English, did not understand any ... view more

Seated 90 minutes late - horrible service and attitude

In this economy, you would think restaurants would do anything they could to attract customers. Unfortunately it seems Mama Mexico doesn't really care. We were seated 90 minutes late (had an 8pm reservation, seated at 9:30). The manager couldn't care less that they overbooked tables. We were promised two pitchers of margaritas for our trouble, but of course they showed up on our bill anyway and were not removed. ... view more

Terrible service and they tried to scam us on the bill

The food here is good and the place in my neighborhood, so I've been a few times. It's never been great service, but this last time was really over the top. First of all, it took us 35 minutes to get a menu and drink orders in after we were seated. Then, after several mistakes (the appetizer never came so we had to cancel it, they brought me the wrong drink twice, etc), we finally had our meal.\r \r When the bil... view more

Laughable service

After sitting at our table for 30 mins. waiting for someone to at least take our drink order, it was only after I asked the hostess for a waiter (this was after we had asked one of the other waiters to get our waiter) did we see our waiter. When our drinks arrived one was wrong, it took an other 30 mins. to get that drink. We were really looking forward to desert but, we were ignored again. No one come during our m... view more

Thanks for nothing

I made a reservation for cinco de mayo a month ago, I called the day before to confirm. It was confirmed. I called again the day of to say our party was going to be smaller. No problem. I got my confirmation e-mail at 5PM that day. When we got there, they didn't have our name on their list, but I showed them the confirmation e-mail, the host told me he'd seat me in a few minutes, nothing. I asked again, they said a f... view more

Overpriced Mexican

As we were seated for lunch our server asked if we'd like some guacamole. Of course! Little did we know that we had just been bamboozled for a $13 condiment. I had the super beef burro and my partner enjoyed the tortillas mexicanas--both of which were delicious. The sopapillas for dessert were OK with a shot of espresso. Total? $60. AND NO DRINKS. At best the cuisine was 4 star (we saw nothing particularly out... view more

Closest to Southern California Mexican food as you are going to get in NYC...

I got to give credit where credit is due. The is good food. It is expensive for mexican food to me, but GOOD. I am from San Diego, and I find it extremely hard to find good mexican food. Tex Mex is not my thing, and I am not suggesting that this is Tex Mex, but this is the closest to a Southern Cali/Baja Mexico mexican resturant you can find in NYC. It's on the high end, so the presentation and all of the foo fo... view more
