A wonderfully unique, slightly upscale take on Mexican food. Everything was delicious.

Extremely noisy.
There was a party of women that were too noisy.
I wish the staff could have asked them to keep it down. Everyone around us was visibly upset by their level of noise.

Astoria has really gained a winner this time everything was above average except for the noice level, too loud for a normal conversation, there is nothing to absorb sound so guests have to raise voices an octave, hope they can correct this as I would like to bring guests to enjoy this wonderful food👍

Wow - what a meal! I went to the restaurant with my wife and daughter for my birthday, and what a treat! The appetizers were delicious, as we had the chiro cheese and the guacamole. Both were outstanding with a little kick. My enchiladas had an unusual but delicious sauce. My daughter's short ribs fell off the bone. My wife's tacos were perfectly cooked and the fillings were unique and very tasty. What a treat, and we'll be back. It was a little pricey, but it's worth it to pay for quality!

We Had to move our reservation 30 minutes out of the reserve time and without any issue or complaints it was done on the phone.Our server was Cosme. He was great! Super nice, accommodating and knew what he was talking about. We had the ceviche and guac for apps. But that comp salsa they gave is what i kept goin back for. Honestly I liked the appetizer more than my entrée but overall everything was beautiful we had outdoor seating and usually with outdoor seating they forget to check on you but not our server he kept on coming back after every 15 to 20 minutes to ask us if there was anything we needed or anything else he can get for us. Definitely coming back here but a lot yourself at least 30 minutes more to look for parking which has nothing to do with the restaurant or the service just a tip

The food is incredible. Staff is great... very friendly and on-point. My only complaint is how loud the music is. I could barely hear my friend sitting across from me. Don't let that stop you from going though. It's completely worth it.

Any given day, if you ask me what I want for dinner, the answer will be: Mexican. Ruta Oaxaca hit the spot.
A small group (3 including myself) went on a Friday at 6 PM. It was bustling, but not overwhelming. We had a reservation and were seated right away. From beginning to end, the staff was so attentive and kind, explaining all of the specials. The drinks and the food were delectable - we split ceviche and was a perfect portion for sharing. We also ordered (individually) tacos, short rib, enfrijoladas, as well as a side of fried plantains and esquites. The portions are large, so we did have some to take home with us. We also took some home with us to save room for dessert, a delicious and fairly delicate panna cotta with guava. Highly recommend for a night out.

Service was great and staff was friendly. Food is delicious, a bit pricier. Noise level is *loud* (it was Saturday night), but definitely would recommend the restaurant find some sound dampening material. I’m all for an energetic vibe, but it was borderline uncomfortable and I could not hear my dinner partner at all.

It was nice to see the restaurant full, but the volume was excruciating. We ignored it and yelled across the table like everyone else was doing, because the food was worth it. Fresh, delicious, flavorful bites of amazing food. The best Mexican food. Next time, we'll eat outside.

Had the most wonderful meal! The Bunuelos and the Ribs Istmenas were the true standouts as well as the cocktails and the mezcal tiramisu. Can’t wait to go back and try more mole items and have a few more cocktails!

Also our server was an absolute delight and made excellent suggestions. The only slight negative is that our entrées took a bit longer to come out than I expected.

Everything about this restaurant is amazing from the service to the food. Tacos are made with in house made fresh tortillas. Their ribs are out of this world and that house salsa is the best I’ve ever had.
