Loud music from the mariachis and a festive atmosphere make this a great place to go for a pitcher of sangria and some Mexican food. The food was alright, but the red sangria real...

This is a great spot for a special occasion with friends and family they have great food and make dip right at your table. But you pay for it. Pros: Good Quality Cons: A bit Expensive for Mexican Food more

STAY AWAY!!!!! 5/13/2010

If I could give it a -5 stars I would. My husband took me a month ago and we had a horrible time. The service was horrible. We sat for 30 min before we even got attended to. Only because we called the manager over. The food was disgusting. The supposed ceviche was a horrible tasting shrimp cocktail. The main dishes were tasteless chicken with soggy rice. A few days later I noticed that in our checking account they had overcharged us. We contacted the restaurant and we basically got the brush off. Overall a horrible experience. NEVER AGAIN!!!? Pros: great guacamole Cons: everything else more

A-mazing!!!!! 3/7/2009

This place totally deserves the five diamond award it won! I always order there when i want mexican food, and trust me, there are two other mexican restaurants nearby i can order from, but they never come to mind. Though i've eaten food from Mama many times, i've eaten inside the place once but it was still pretty good. And the band and table-side quac was amazing! the one downside was that it was crowded. Pros: every thing incredible!! Cons: croweded more

Mexican Food at its Finest 11/13/2008

Two friends and i went to eat here a few weeks ago and I have been meaning to write a review ever since! I was shocked to see a negative review on here, especially because we had such an amazing night! This wasnt my first time here, but it was my friends. We ordered the guacemole, which is fresh-made at the table! Im personally not a guacemole eater, but the boys were scraping the dish trying to get every little bite! One of my friends ordered a shrimp dish, and he went crazy for it!! Unfortunately, I cant remember the name of it. My other friend and I split the surf and turf fajitas for two and we were in fajita heaven!! The meat is amazing and all the veggies taste so fresh! We also loved the seasoning of them! The boys also ordered a couple drinks, which they said were amazing...me, just a diet coke. The bill wasnt cheap, but we thought it was appropriate considering we were eating at a top Mexican restaurant in the city! All three of us already have plans to eat dinner here agin in a few weeks!! Definitely worth the price...this Mexican food is awesome!! Pros: MEXICAN FOOD--gorgeous restaurant!! Cons: none--ill be back more

Overpriced, Terrible Service, Mediocre Food 11/6/2008

I visited Mama Mexico today for lunch with two friends. Service: The reason I will never go back to this restaurant is definitely because of the service. Initially the wait staff was very attentive. It was typically the type of service I would expect with prices like that, but when the bill came it was an entirely different story. My friend and I both ordered a lunch special off the menu but the waitress apparently brought us a nearly identical lunch special that was NOT on the menu that also cost $4 more. When we saw the price on the bill for $20 for our lunch entrees we asked her to clarify. The waitress then proceeded to tell us that we should have informed her that the entree was incorrect before we ate it--albeit we had no idea what the difference between the two entrees was besides the price. Anyway, to make a long story short, our waitress just left us at our table and never took care of our problem so my friend had to get up and talk to someone else who also told us we should have told them before we ate it and that he couldnt alter the price on the bill because the manager was not in. In total we waited for about 20 minutes for them to tell us they couldn't take $8 dollars off a $123.00 dollar check. Their lack of problem solving skills was astonishing. Someone needs to let them know that the customer is always right. Food: I was initially shocked by the food prices for lunch. The food was okay, but nothing spectacular. I ordered a plate of enchiladas, one with filet mignon, one with shrimp and another with chicken. The dish was very generous on sauce but lacking the flavor I look for when I want Mexican food. The guacamole (an astonishing $11 dollars for a small bowl) was also bland. I found myself mixing it with the salsa just for some kick. more

Gorgeous Mexican Restaurant 7/13/2008

fabulous night out! 10/29/2007

Went with an old group of friends - we had a wonderful time! Seating is a little tight and we were practically sitting with our neighbors- but this place is a fun loud atmosphere - be prepared! our waiter made us fresh guacamole at our table which was awesome and the drinks were amazing! we racked up quite a bill so the management kept sending us shots and complimentary drinks. I ordered the red snapper in green sauce-- yum! The food is the most traditional I have had in NYC and this did not let me down! It was fantastic and we had a wonderful time They also had a mariachi band playing and when one of the members of our table started singing along with them everyone in the restaurant applauded! Fun for large groups!! Not fun if you want a quiet romantic dinner Pros: Excellent night out! Cons: not good for quiet romantic dinners! more
