We loved everything about Casa Enrique, from the friendly greeting at the door to the delicious food. The waitress brought me out a taste of the salsa verde sauce when I was concerned about how spicy it would be. It was the best salsa verde I have ever had. And the mole was perfection. Still thinking about it and cannot wait to go back.

The acoustic panels don't work at all. I could barely hear the server.

Also, we get it, you're super busy. But to ask a table to leave so you can seat the next group is ridiculous. Make fewer bookings in a day.

Very loud. Service is good but there seems to be the impulse to get you in and out to turn the tables. Lots of hovering. Food is good.

Food was delicious. Cocktails were fresh, fruity and herby. We sampled a few items and shared which is the way to go. The only downside is we felt rushed. There were lines of people waiting. And server was polite but checked on us a lot hurrying us along. I would have like to savor food more.

We are regulars and have always enjoyed our dinners. Something was totally off this evening. Got the wrong food, the skirt steak was unchewable, the Chile relleno was soggy and mushy and we were told the daily specials were not ready yet. Was the chef even there? We wii go back but $330 was a high price for very ill prepared food. Also they really have to get real napkins and stop with this paper ones. A 1 star,Michelin experience, not even close this time.

Casa Enrique its Michelin star because it is a unique experience. They made traditional Mexican dishes and elevated their look, presentation, aromas, and the flavors they are going for taste old with a bit of new. The portions are good and the food was delicious. The service was not bad but I would expect a little more from such an establishment. Be that as it may, I thoroughly enjoyed my brunch and will go back to Casa Enrique soon.

Not your everyday Mexican restaurant. A few regional choices which is great: e.g., lengua taco - delicious mole sauce that is complex & rich. The guacamole was delicious, with clean, fresh flavor with balanced heat

Service was attentive & excellent!

Margaritas needed acidity. Main entrees tend to be single-note, w salt being the predominant flavor.

Disappointing overall, esp. b/c we were looking forward to a Michelin start restaurant in the neighborhood

The new room is great, but all the tables were cramped into the corner making it impossible and impractical to get into...even more crowded than the original space! Despite the fact that there was ample space around the banquet table in the center. Spread out more! Also, it was way too loud in the new room—also worse than the old spot, which was already too loud.
