Mexican
Welcome to Noche Mexicana Restaurant. Our food is from Guerrero, a Southwestern state of Mexico. We are from a town known as Tlapa de Comomfort Guerrero, also known as the heart of the mountain in Guerrero. Our recipes have been passed on from our grandparents to our parents and our parents to us. We try our best to keep our recipes as original as possible, so we can give you a taste of the culinary flavor from the heart of the Guerrero Mountains. On our menu you will find from traditional snacks such as tacos, tostadas, sopes, etc; to the more authentic regional dishes, such as pipian de pollo [pumpkin seed sauce with chicken], chileajo de puerco [guahillo chili sauce with pork chops], or the traditional mole poblano with chicken . We have shrimp Mexican style [shrimp with sautéed onions, tomatoes and fresh jalapenos], camarones a la diabla [sautéed shrimp with chipotle sauce]. We have homemade flan; horchata and jamaica drinks. YOU ARE INVITED TO TASTE A PIECE OF MEXICO.

    It looks like it's been a neighborhood restaurant for many years. Good food, casual setting and it's a good place to go whether you want a big meal or just a couple of appetizers. Great guacamole!!

    The food is ok, but for about the 10th time the staff refuses to acknowledge Open Table reservations. I’ve explained the point system to them, showed my iPhone with the open table app reservation and the waitresses act like they have no idea what I’m talking about. I’ve even got a rude email from a manager disputing this. Anyway, if you care about your points or don’t want a “no show” designation on your account, Save your receipt & send a photo copy to Open Table to correct this after you’re marked as a no show a few days later.

    Once again Noche Mexicana had no idea what Open Table is. The waitress claimed to know nothing about it, even after showing my iPhone screen. I am done with this place. Not worth the sullen service, mediocre food & having to write to Open Table to get my points.

    Pretty good Mexican place on UWS. Food, prices & service are good. My complaint is that if you use Open Table & like to accumulate point, Noche Mexicana NEVER acknowledges your reservation. I have showed them the app on my iPhone, mentioned the reservation, & given my name. The staff has no idea how to check in a reservation. If you want to gain your points, wait until your email saying you were a no show, then send a photo copy of your receipt. It's hassle each time.

    Good Mexican food. When mentioning Open Table reservation, the staff never seems to know what Open Table is. The service is good otherwise. Generous portions. The Noche platter is enough for 2 people. Great black beans & rice. Again, if you want to earn your Open Table points, Noche Mexicana's waitresses have no clue on how to check in a reservation & you will be notified by Open Table that you were a "no show".

    The neighborhood Mexican restaurant once again failed to have any idea what Open Table is. I mentioned my reservation & showed the waitress my phone with the information. She claimed to not know anything about Open Table. This happens every time I've been there. She was the only one working so service was slow. If this wasn't such a close choice, I'd doubt I'd make an effort to go back. Food is ok Since I wrote this review, I was notified by open table I was a 'no show'. I emailed a photo copy of my receipt & after 2 correspondences, I received my points. I am done with Noche Mexicana!

    Authentic. Tasty. Substantial portions. Good prices. The piped in ethnic music was contemporary -- not the old fashioned traditional sound that is common at Mexican restaurants. Not a pretty room, but come for the good food and good value.

    The service was terrible, it took them literally an hour to deliver the meals....We were two people and there were only two other tables seated. Then others showed up and we were the last ones served. Even the guests next to us where shocked and we laughed about how ridiculous it was. Food was bland and nothing special. All the photos looked great but the reality was bleak.

    The food here was disgusting. I had steak and my friend had chicken. We had the most difficult time cutting our meats because they were so hard and rubbery. The waiter was also not good at all. We sat there for almost 30minutes before she even came back to ask us if we wanted our check. The restaurant wasn't even busy so I don't understand why we had such bad service.

    We arrived for our dinner and ordered classic margaritas. They arrived along with the habitual chips and salsa. The chips didn't taste fresh, may have come from a bag; the salsa wasn't anything special; the drink forced us out the door! We looked at the food served to the table next to us and weren't impressed. Nothing special, not worth putting any money down towards. We were looking forward to this "authentic Mexican" family-run experience and had to go somewhere else to find it.

    Maybe there is too much on the menu for this smallish restaurant. Good cold Mexican beer and decent sangria. We ordered the mixed platter, which included a good variety of treats. The mole rojo pork chops were very thin and tough, I'd rather have one good pork chop than two thin over cooked chops.
