Food wasn't good, or authentic. It is nice to sit outside on a sunny day and watch people go by though Pros: sidewalk tables, inexpensive Cons: food

Last weekend I was out with my wife and was looking for a place to east. After doing a search on my phone I came across caliente cab. My wife and I were very happy with the food and the service. We will recommend caliente cab to all of our friends. more

Good Place but sort of expensive 8/14/2011

Very good location, with great outdoor seating. A good place to go with friends. The food is ok, typical Mexican, nothing out of this world. The portions are sort of small too. The food comes out real fast also. more

Good Guacamole - but that's seriously it! 8/4/2011

I've been here way too many times than I'd like to admit - I guess when I'm hankering for Mexican food and I'm in the city without a smart-phone, I stupidly give this place the benefit of the doubt. The guacomole is good and they make it in front of you. The rest of the food is really gross and oily. The bathrooms are dirty, and even the inside of the place is kinda nasty. Prime seating is outside, and that's only on a nice day. Don't go here! It's expensive and just gross. REALLY GROSS. If you find yourself at the 6th avenue location, walk east on west 3/west 4 - there are two places that are far better than this place. more

lame Mexican food 7/30/2011

Some of the worst Mexican food in New York City. Lame service. It's not a horrible experience, but have a margarita at the bar before being seated so you're a little tipsy and won't notice that the food is lousy. This is a place for college students or tourists who don't notice how bad the food is. more

What's spanish for Horrible? 7/3/2010

Wow, I hate this place! Food is terrible, staff is rude, and everything about it screams tourist trap. Only go here if you hate life. Cons: ALL more

Great Time! 5/18/2010

Had a great time with a few friends, the new menu is varied and the server was very attentive. I read other reviews and I wonder where these whiners went, it couldn't have been the same place I went to. A very positive experience. Pros: Great food more

Great margueritas 5/10/2010

I had a great time Friday night at Caliente Cab Company. My girlfriends and I had Pros: Great food, drink and atmosphere Cons: Just a little noisy being on the street more

awesome margaritas - great mexican food 12/28/2009

fun mexican restaurant- greenwich village institution. Been going for years and the food is always great and the margaritas are the best in town. High energy- good bar scene. Pros: best frozen drinks in nyc more

AWESOME FOOD , GREAT DRINKS 12/4/2009

HAVE NOT BEEN HERE FOR ABOUT A YEAR AND THE MENU IS DIFFERENT WITH GREAT NEW ITEMS. THE CALIFORNIA SPRING ROLL WAS LIKE A ""MEXICAN SUSHI ROLL"", WHOLE WHEAT TORTILLA WITH SHRIMP, AVOCADO, AND RICE. WE SPLIT THIS (2 OF US) AND ALSO HAD SOME TERRIFIC TAPAS AND CEVICHE. BIG PORTIONS, AND ALL GOOD VALUE. MUST TRY! Pros: SPECIAL TAPAS MENU IS SUPER Cons: A BIT NOISY more

Horrible 9/4/2009

it is the only Mexican restaurant place in the world that charges for chips and salsa and the portions shrink every time I go there....never again! more

Delicious 6/10/2009

The food was great and the margaritas were delicious! Great and fun place for a night out or anytime really. Pros: Food, Margaritas more

good location, ok food, good margaritas 1/12/2009

i must say the location is great for this restaurant, .....the over sized margaritas were , i was there last night and the night was quiet...the upstairs sitting was good for me and my girlfriend...our server was awesome i must say, he made some really good recommendations about the food but me and my girl just wanted the awesome guacamole for 3 with some chips and margaritas......to top off the night we enjoyed a tequila thing that offered 3 shots for $18 bucks.....!!! more

ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING 10/14/2008

Ok I will ADMIT...I didn't check the reviews....because this was TOTALLY spur of the moment. more

avoid at all costs ! 9/8/2008

what can i say that hasnt already been said ..........pay attention to the reviews, i was willing to give this place a chance regardless of the awful reviews....a very big mistake! Pros: location perhaps !!! Cons: management,food, value more

YOU'VE GOT TO BE F*$#!@% KIDDING ME!!! 7/10/2008

What you need to know about me...1.) I used to work here back at the turn of the century, 2.) I've always sort of have liked the food, and 3.) I've been here twice in the last month and a 1/2. Which is why I have to say... Pros: Conveniently Located Cons: EVERYTHING ELSE!!! more

Overpriced, tourist trap 7/6/2008

This place is really expensive and caters to the tourist crowd. If you want good authentic mexican food there are plenty of better places in the city, particularly in Spanish Harlem. Cons: Chain restaurant, expensive, not authentic more

COMPLETELY OVERPRICED FOR AVERAGE FOOD 7/1/2008

Pros: cab inside of restaurant Cons: completely overpriced for average food more

worst experience ever, do not go 6/24/2008

We just went for lunch. the prices are ridiculous and the food is not NEARLY good enough to put up with the terrible service we got. You'd think the staff thought they were at the Beverley Hills Four Seasons and their patrons just a bunch of homeless bums walking into the restaurant. My friend asked for a little salsa with her meal, when it didn't come with the MEXICAN food she ordered, and an extra $2 was added to our bill. Upon splitting the bill on 2 cards, they rounded up, and did not charge the exact cost. The staff yelled at us and when i requested a manager, i was blatantly ignored after being told to ""go away"". Oh yeah, the hostess called my friend trash for asking if the $16 HOUSE margarita made with WELL tequila (and not much tequila, at that) was listed on the bill correctly. Never going back. apparently i'm not the only one with this experience. Pros: after calling my friend trash, the hostess DIDN'T attempt to throw anything at us. Cons: the terrible staff, the ungodly prices more

Worst dining experience in the city ever 6/11/2008

I went to Caliente Cab last night to have dinner with some friends, and we had the worst dining experience ever. First, no one came over to our table for 10 minutes. It took us another 10 minutes to get water, which we had to ask for 2 times, and it was 90 degrees outside! The margaritas were watered down and contained almost no alcohol. Our waitress, when we would ask her for things, would just go stand in a corner and stare out into space. She did this for the entire time we were there, neither being attentive to any of her tables or actually doing any work. Her name was Blair and I have to say she was the most inattentive, lazy, and slowest waitress I?ve ever had. After spending another couple of minutes trying to flag her down, we went to order. She knew nothing about the menu ? we?d order something and she?d flip a menu open, read the description, and then ask ?what kind of meat??, etc. When one of the girls at our table went to order an entree with no mushrooms, she refused, insisting that this was impossible. She snapped at our friend when we questioned this, as its something she's ordered before in the same chain. Eventually, we called the manager over to complain, which we don?t like to do as three of us have worked in restaurants (as servers, bartenders, AND managers) for years. He added more alcohol to our drinks but charged us for this, and made excuses for the waitress because it was indeed possible to order something without mushrooms. Waiting for the check was another fiasco. The food and drink weren?t even good, and everything on the menu was grossly overpriced. I won?t ever eat in one of these restaurants again, and don?t suggest anyone else does either. There?s a million restaurants on 7th Ave South, all much more enjoyable with good service. Caliente Cab should be embarrassed for the service we received, and should have at least had the decency to send over a complimentary round of drinks. Bad service, bad management, bad place!!!! Pros: nothing... seriously Cons: service, Blair as a waitress, value, management, overall experience, etc more

Terrible, do not go! 6/11/2008

I visited this restaurant at the Newark Airport. It all started when I asked for chips and salsa to go with our drinks. I asked again. Still to this day have not gotten chips and salsa (maybe they planned to mail them to me?) Then, took our waiter forever to ""find"" the time to take our order, and we got the nachos. Then it took almost an hour for the food to come. The last straw was when a business traveler seated near us was asked to leave the establishment for only ordering a soda. Now, I could understand if this place had been packed, but it wasn't. There were empty tables everywhere. We confronted the guy who called himself the manager, but were confused when he said if we were unhappy he could ""call the manager""! He explained that it was the restaurant's policy to eject patrons (in an airport?) who simply come there to wait. WTF?!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY ON THIS PLACE. They definitely need to clean house. Oh, and the food and drinks? Overpriced and average. Pros: Can't think of a single one! Cons: Everything! more
