    If La Esquina is as much stage set as restaurant, that’s because it’s owned by Serge Becker, the designer and nightlife entrepreneur behind such hipster loci as Bowery Bar, MK, and Area Read more

    Food is good - the people who work there try to act a little too cool when you ask to get a seat downstairs.

    For tacos, get them from the taco stand, from the cafe go for the tortas, if you want tequila downstairs is where you need to be.

    The bar is nice but el pollo con potatoes left something to be desired and then string beans were burned. The ambiance is great though so I will give this place another chance.

    Skip the downstairs restaurant and eat at the side café instead — much cozier and you don’t need a reservation.

    Any of the tacos are pretty bomb. Carnitas, carne asada... always good choices.

    Tinge de Pollo tacos are best. After that bistec. Dinner downstairs better than drinks downstairs.

    Breakfast tacos but only during the week. Make the effort and get 'em. You won't be disappointed.

    If you're getting take out, 2 pulled pork tacos and a house salad just hit the $15 credit card minimum. And they're simultaneously filling and not-too-guilty-feeling.

    Tacos tasty enough but not life-changing. Service is slow - waited 20 min for two tacos for takeout.

    Moderately priced. Ratings are much higher than what you get. Their meals and drinks are prepared so doesn't take long to get served. Tiny place.

    The food is excellent but the service inside was lackluster at best. Perhaps it was an off night. I'd still come back.
