Stopped for a drink on an unseasonably warm January day (60 degrees!). They could not make me a Paloma so I settled for a margarita. Most places I've been to during this trip don't have a big tequila selection- this place is unique - choices! But to make a good Margarita you need to have a good recipe.... Good bar... More

We stumbled on Patron during a trip to NYC during the heat wave of 2012-lured in by $5:00 margaritas-we have made it a focal point of every subsequent trip- great food, great drink and some of the best and friendliest servers I have ever come across.

This is probably my favorite Mexican restaurant. I love that they ID at the door, I would not recommend this restaurants for families to bring their kids. The space is not too big but I don't mind, especially since its NYC. I had steak quesadillas and it was amazing! It came out fresh, hot and steaming! Now for the patron;... More

Waitress wasn't too happy to see us when we said we were just going to have a drink or two. But we ended up ordering chips and a lot of margaritas and she warmed up to us. Everything was fantastical!

I went with my grown children and we had a pitcher of amazing margarita's with our guacamole and home made chip appetizer. I have been trying to replicate that guac ever since, but no luck so far. It was truly the best guacamole we have ever had. Our drinks and dinner were great also, but that Guacamole!!!!!!

Sort of your basic, not very authentic mexican joint. They've got kinda silly rules about not letting you order a drink and stand by the bar to drink it, like at happy hour when the seats are full. They have a bouncer at the door. Not a very welcoming, customer-friendly presence. Last time I was there he was a jerk... More

Happy hour is Thursday through Saturday from 5 to 8 (and I believe all day Sunday through Wednesday). I came in right before happy hour was over while waiting for my boyfriend. They still seated me and let me order the happy hour drinks, which was awesome. However, the drinks aren't very good. We had the margarita and the Long... More

When Im thinking to have dinner in a Mexican place I always choose Patron! Affordable and very authentic food. The Margo's are the best. Try the coconut!

Although the decor needs serious upgrades the food was top notch! Chips and salsa should have been complimentary....however, the salsa was out of this world...with just the right amount of salt and cilantro (5$)! We ordered the veggie enchiladas and the veggie tacos...veggies were fresh cut with the right amount of crema/queso! Husband order bourbon and coke; she brought rum... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
