Not the best Mexican ever (I may have been spoiled by the guacamole at El Catrin in Toronto) but still pretty good and the tacos were filled with good meat and were super tasty. The visit was made by ourc waitress though... she was great!

The tequila cocktails were strong and tasty. And the spicy guacamole was one of the best I have ever tasted. But beware the cost - each cocktail is $13 and the guacamole for two was $16!

Caliente Cab can get crowded, but it's always good! Great vibe, fun music, delicious Mexican food and great margaritas. Fun at the bar or for indoor or outdoor dining. Outdoor seating is great for people watching.

I am from the South, and clearly TexMex is what I am accustomed to, and that is definitely not what this place has to offer. Having said that, the food is good, not the greatest, but completely fine. The drinks DO pack quite the punch...More

Came here as it was the only open restaurant within my first choice- which unfortunately was closed today for Xmas. We were seated quick. Service was fast and friendly. Food was very good, not spectacular. Don't take it from me. I am easy to please....More

Stumbled across this restaurant by chance whilst out browsing and got attracted by the fact it was full. Buzzing warm atmosphere inside on a cold night so we took the last free table. The food was good, large portions and the fresh guacamole was delicious....More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

Some sidewalk seating some inside. It's not huge I'd say maybe 50-75 tables?
