    Awesome food and yes it's Mexican but it's more than tacos and enchiladas. Don't get chips and guacamole. Free salsa and fresh tortillas are delicious. Duck with green mole was amazing.

    Brilliant tortilla soup, tamarind-sautéed shrimp served with corn cakes, and a fire-roasted chile relleno that will have you raving almost before you put down your fork. Read more

    The Churros desert is one of the best desserts in The City. I was thrilled that they were still hot. And the chilly vanilla ice cream pairs well in this treat.

    Definitely worth a stop. Try the fresh guac with three salsas and ask for it mild unless you really dig spicey food. Small, fun bar and just 2 blocks from Union Square.

    The eggs Benedict was delicious it was on a corn tortilla tasting muffin with chipotle hollandaise, the TiVo was a delicious omelet, it was like a burrito but in eggs not tortilla. Yum!

    The guacamole is a must: who cares about the price. It's freshly made as are the tortillas and the three hot sauces are a great compliment.

    I'm in town for work and this place was recommended to me by a friend. I did take out after a long day and wasn't disappointed. Maybe the best mole I've ever had.

    We booked a table online. The food was great and reasonably priced. Service was excellent too! Some investment in the male restrooms would have made the experience just perfect!

    The cocktails here are tasty & refreshing, made of delicious fresh ingredients. The food good too. I prefer sitting up front or at the bar and enjoying the fun atmosphere.

    Unexpected, surprising and very popular Mexican bistro. Try the Macho Margarita, the table-service Guacamole, the Mole Poblano and Chile Relleno. Make reservations!

    Soft corn tortillas are delicious. The mole poblano was a little off, not really what I was expecting, but the crab enchiladas (the special) was fantastic!

    Food is exceptional. Queso con chorizo, fillet mignon (!!) and the mole chicken were incredible. The service drops the overall value of this place.

    Carnitas was really good. The tortilla and chips. We're good. Tamales were boo! The fillings were non existance in them. Over all cool spot.

    Absolutely amazing Mexican Food. Perfect margaritas with over 150 or so tequilas to choose from, home-made corn tortillas that are the best I've ever had in a restaurant, killer table-side Guac...real

    All 3 times I've been here the service has been slow. Don't come if in a hurry, but the food is great. I'm a fan of their queso fundido and the ensalada de betabeles

    If you ever travel to San Francisco, you have to try the best gourmet Mexican food offered by Colibri. It's a great place to go on a date or enjoy fine dining. Specially their Carnitas plate.

    Great food, made fresh. If you're adventurous, ask for the chef's special hot salsa. If you're vegetarian, try the chile relleno - I dare you not to be amazed.

    Meet Jesus at the bar. Great personality and great guy. Knows his liquors. Try the Mango Creme Brûlée. Possibly the best Creme Brûlée ever. Prices here are very reasonable.

    Portions are pretty small, especially considering the cost ($18+ entrees). Guess that's the Union Square effect. Guac & churros both quite tasty.
