This place sucks. The margaritas are horrible and staff is both slow and incompetent. If Taco Bell had a liquor license they would beat them. No exaggeration, our second round was literally a pint glass full of lime juice. I’m not saying that have to be Tom Coughlan from Cocktail or one of the guys from Apotheke, but how hard is it to make a good margarita?

As I walked down Sullivan Street, after a night of endless sightseeing and walking around the streets of NYC, I was in total amazement that there was a restaurant in Greenwich Village with a picture of a traditional ""East LA Vato"" on the front of a restaurant, in a neighborhood that was historically known for being a bohemian sort. Being from Boyle Heights, I had to take a photo of this restaurant! As I peered in just to look at the menu and I was totally taken a back by the restaurant theme, which payed homage to all the ""Chicano neighborhoods"" in L.A., as well as the traditional meals that were made by our Chicana moms. I was very pleased at how attentive the owners made you feel and if you let them know you're from L.A., this place is like a home, away from home, even if you're not into the ""vato/cholo culture decor."" My husband and I had already eaten that evening, but I did get to indulge in the margaritas, which I must say, were the best I've ever had in NYC. I look forward to coming back to this place, next time I'm in the village.

I'm from LA originally although I have been here for 30 years. I definitely got an LA vibe going into the place.
The food was great. The queso fondido (spelling?) and the enchilada's were superb. I'm definitely going back!
BTW, this isn't my first review but I don't usually take the time to write them-but this place deserves the get some praise. Orale!

This is a great place for Angelinos in New York. The owner left L.A. to escape the rift raft and started this restaurant/bar, and brought with him authentic Mexican food. The drinks are solid and the ambiance is unbeatable. I especially enjoy mingling with other Angelinos, either travelers or students.

We've been here before and sat at the bar and was treated really great by the bartender. He served us great drinks. we just recently went back last weekend and was rudely told if we are not eating we could'nt sit at a table near the window, fine but say it nicely. this place is small and there was one seat left at the bar at it was pretty cramped. so we stood no big deal, had another good round of drinks. we finally got a seat and there was a bus boy filling water carafes who practically yawned in our faces, it didnt seem like a real yawn seemed like he was being purposely rude to us for some strange reason. all in all come to this place if you want to eat not just hang at the bar, its too small and you feel like you are practically up the bartenders/busboy/waitress' you know what.

I've been There a few times and I must say: It's Simply DELICIOUS. The food is always fresh and tasty no matter what time and it always leaves you wanting more and more ...maybe because there is So much to choose from! They have EVERYTHING . Great selections .......

Outside of that RUDE female bar tender & the one busboy who seems to watch you instead of get what you need the place is alright. There is a male bartender that more than made up for the bad service of his fellow employees. Atmosphere is perfect and safe. There is no way a Silverlake ex-pat would be safe in place like this out west! Great place for the west coasters who miss home & for the New Yorkers who want a taste of the TRUE Los Angeles, not that hyped up, Hollywood phoniness.

Very good Mexican place. They use all fresh ingredients and I love their San Fernando . My margarita was just okay. The decor was very weird, did not fit the food at all, also kind dirty and customer service is eeehh. Now the food I give 5 stars! Literally the best La Colonia Red Chile I ever had. That's coming straight from a Mexican. I would recommend to everybody.

Can't believe the person b4 me compares these homemade chips and salsa with Costcos!! Just proves some people don't know good food when they have it!! We have been coming to Flo for great homemade dishes since they opened and have never been disappointed!! They have way of making simple dishes very creative and delicious. The margaritas have always been strong and fresh and if you don't want to pay for the ""homies"", you shouldn't order it!! We are originally from California and recognize good CaliMex food when we taste it and Flo has it all!! You won't be disappointed!!

My search for basic, authentic mexican continues cause I didn't find it at this restaurant. Chips and salsa were probably from Costco. Our margarita's tasted like generic lime corn syrup. My friend got the fajitas and they were ok. I got a buritto which had pineapple in it. I am always willing to try something new, I thought the pineapple might be grilled or have spices on it. But they pretty much opened a can of pineapple and dumped it in the burrito. Nice try but not good. Nothing here was willing to come back for. The decor was cool(they have a low rider bike in the corner) and they have a margarita that comes with a Homies Doll that you would get out of the .25 cent machine(creative). There are other places that are better.

New York is great because you can find a ton of great little restaurants, however I will no longer be looking for a new spot to go since I have found Florencia 13. Laurie, one of the wonderful servers, took great care of us and made our visit great!. The food was outstanding...make sure to start with some of their spicy guac and of cource a flaming margarita. If you want a friendly restaurant with great atmoshpere look no further. Enjoy!!!

Have heard about this place from friends who discovered it. All I can say is ""Amazing""! Was very impressed with the food, drinks, almosphere! I had been searching for great ""Cali"" style food for the last 3 years since I""ve moved here and finally, I am home!! Great staff, too!! Will highly recommend Florencia to everyone!

Have to say that based on the other reviews i was looking forward to going to this restaurant. We finally had to go get the waiter and ask him to bring us a glass of water, and then again had to get someone to come over to take our order. I love good food, but unfortunately, we didn't have any here. I wouldn't even call it mediocre. Actually Taco bell would have probably been just as good. We aren't drinkers, perhaps a few margaritas are needed to improve the quality of the food. Overall beyond disappointing on all counts - food and service. totally not recommended.

As a loyal and faithful Florencia 13 customer, I often check citysearch in anticipation of them receiving best Margarita and burrito.. again.
Please note that I've been consistenly going to this POSITIVE and high-energy filled hotspot for over a year. I still go there about 3 times a week, and truly feel like I'm part of La Familia.
Although I have never written a review before, after viewing the aftorementioned review, I was SHOCKED and appalled at the audacity at the particular customer to dare to try to denote the value of the staff there. I feel debted and compelled to rebuttle. Why? Because on that particular evening...last friday, the 3rd,
I WAS THERE.
I was sitting at the bar, and the restaurant was busy. Um, Friday night... at Florencia...being a 1/4 busy??? Just thinkin about that fabricated image seems ridiculous.
Other dedicated regulars and myself were enjoying the fantastic food and mood set prior. This girl, whom the staff tried politely to accomodate, didn't stop trying to feed her demanding ego from the get go. I saw first hand that Ms. Manager/Wench with the red hair (who isn't a wench at all, and had never been anything but always striving to please the customer). She was professional and courteous as always, but Ms. Young Thang just would not give it up. She was disruptive to myself and the other bar-goers, and I would've let this go, but not when you attempt to belittle such a great staff. Then again, let's not forget that this is NY, and some insecure, mentally unstable people, and their equally pugnacious posse will never be pleased.
And, from what I gather, if it was the equally negative friend who wrote the review, you will (hopefully) grow up one day and discover that you must give respect to receive it. On behalf of the dedicated regulars, please DON'T come back.
Few restaurants exude so much love. For their food, drinks, and mostly their PEOPLE. And we, in return will always be loyal.

I'm sorry, truemargaritalover, but were you sitting at our table when we were rudely addressed with no provocation by two different members of the Florencia 13 staff? Oh, and yes my ""insecure, mentally unstable and equally pugnacious posse who will never be pleased"" always enters a restaurant looking for a good fight - really? We have a bit more going on in our lives than that! I have to wonder if you perhaps work at Florencia with the critique you gave my review!! You really took it a little too personally...isn't this a medium where consumers are able to give their honest opinion? Oh, and if a restaurant posts their information, shouldn't they be prepared for a dose of honesty? If someone like you feels the need to stand up for an establishment and a staff like that, then I hope I NEVER meet you! YES...on a Friday night it was only 1/4 full when we got there! If you had been there when we arrrived (as you may remember it was a rainy night and it really didn't start to fill up until 8:30 - we were there BEFORE that!) you might actually have a leg to stand on! Yes, my friend got incensed but ONLY after we were treated rudely time after time after time! YOU need to up your standards, truemargaritalover! Maybe if you ever ate anywhere other than Florencia you would understand what true customer service really is!

Thankfully my adventurous side brought me here a few years ago. So glad to have a scrumptious spot, where the ambiance reflects the So-Cal feel...try the green chillie sauce(homemade) in addition to your entree and wash it all down with a tasty little caiparinha(you wont regret it). I would recommend this place to anyone looking to slow it down in this fast-paced city...that is until you have one too many flaming margs-oh well do it anyway!

I went to Florecia 13 for dinner last night with 2 friends, and we'll definitely be back. The place is tiny, and since they don't take reservation, I was a bit worried about getting a table on a Friday. But we arrived around 8 and were seated right away. The food/drink was delicious at very reasonable prices (we shared guacamole, had three entrees and two drinks each, and the check was $100), but the best part was the staff. They just couldn't be nicer.
