Perfect spot to celebrate a birthday! Waitstaff was so attentive and food was delicious, nice dim and romantic atmosphere as well :)
Great service and ambiance. We were a group of six that arrived within 10 minutes of each other and we were seated upon arrival so no one had to wait at the door. We had all the appetizers, which were great. Our entrees mixed, the steak and tacos were delicious. I had the branzino fish which I thought was just okay.
We were celebrating my husband’s and a friend’s birthday and our waiter brought dessert with free shots and two sparkler candles for the birthday men. We all agreed that we would definitely go back to Kahlo
Great Food. Excellent Service. Fun Place Will definitely be back
Wonderful attention to service and aesthetics. The staff is friendly and attentive; the room pays homage to its namesake Frida Kahlo and is beautiful.
The food was a mix of delicious and lacking.
The appetizers, Aguachile, Kahlo and Rivera Guacamole and El Charro guacamole were delicious. The mains were disappointing, but desserts were good. Extremely disappointing was the fact that we could not get a cup of coffee to go with those deserts! Our waiter brought out a shot of silver tequila for each of us to make up for that omission!
I thought the Price tag came in way too high for the quality of the food.
It was nice although the servings are very small.
Amazing food and service, in a truly exquisite setting! We shared the lobster in coconut appetizer, which was phenomenal, and the entrees were the barbacoa tacos and the chicken entree. Both fantastic! The margaritas were super delicious, though might be a touch heavy on the salted rim. Would perhaps suggest a different type of salt also as this was pretty finely granulated. A more flake or rock style, perhaps even smoked, would be divine! I look forward to visiting Kahlo again!
The entrees and drinks were great. The ambiance and atmosphere was great. The appetizers were a little bland and room temperature but the entrees we’re great.
Made reservations, app did not specify of vaccine mandate, was forced to eat outdoors while it was cold windy night. First time in NY. Reservations were made months prior
Had an amazing dinner here. Highly recommend on anyone looking for great food and great ambience.
Innovative food, friendly service, classy atmosphere.
Food, service and ambiance were great. A bit noisy, especially near the bar.
The food was incredible and the restaurant is beautiful. Great choice for date night or dinner with friends!
I’ve eaten here multiple times and love the food and the service. Salads are unbelievably fresh, drinks are great and wine is reasonably priced.
Kahlo has turned into our go-to place when meeting folks in the Hudson Yard area. Love the margaritas and tacos.
The food was absolutely delicious and the services, super nice. Thank you
Good food great service and great drinks.
Ordered "La Catrina", "Lobster Coctel", "Tuna Tostadas", and "Shrimp al Pastor" for three people at brunch time. The portions were shockingly small for each dish (Tuna Tostadas: three cracker-sized bites for $19?). The dishes themselves tasted fine (not a big fan of the Lobster Coctel though), but you'd expect more for $100 total including tip -- all three of us came out hungry, and I say that as a person whose portions are on the small side. I also had the sense the restaurant was understaffed. There was a single server for the hall, and the food wait time was also substantial.
I've been in NYC for a while and have been to many restaurants at this price point. I've never written a single restaurant review, but man this place was really not it. I strongly suggest other restaurants for this price.
My New Favorite Place!!! Be back soon…
Went with my family for Mexican Independence they had live mariachi and delicious food & drink specials. Servers were very attentive despite being very busy
Beautiful cocktails, super tasty food, very generous portions, good vibes
Food was incredible, service was great, drinks were tasty! They made my mom’s birthday celebration very special and even brought over a round of tequila shots on the house. The margaritas were quite expensive though.
Great!! Amazing food!!
Very nice modern Mexican cuisine. Enjoyed the empanadas and the arrachera steak the most. The mezcal flight was a great experience as well. Only negative critique is that the lobster coctel did not feel worth the price.
The food was
Wonderful and the service outstanding. A small quaint venue and you feel a bit out of the Hudson Yard crowds. Worth a try!!
I’ve been coming to kahlo often and the tuna tostadas are to die for! The kahlo & Rivera guac is unreal! And the two main dishes which is our go to is the Mole de Pollo campestre and Arrachera steak. Our experience is always a pleasure and the servers are very professional. We do miss we believe was a manager/owner was a lady that was a familiar face to kahlo and has been there for quite a while she just set the mood in kahlo with full professionalism and desire to strive in the industry. She doesn’t seem to be there anymore.
Wonderful wedding anniversary brunch!! The staff made our celebration so special!!
Camila is a treasure!!
Delicious drinks but too pricy ($19 cocktails). Beautiful atmosphere. Good food but tiny portions.
We had a wonderful meal, great cocktails to celebrate my husband’s birthday. For starters had the aguachile and molotes. The aguachile was one of the best we’ve had anywhere - tuna was so fresh and chiles and lime was well-balanced. Cochinita pibil tacos were terrific but would have liked a little bit more pickled onion, branzino main had a delish and complex sauce which we scooped up with a side of fresh tortillas. Tres leches cake for dessert was creamy but not too sweet. Can’t wait to go back !
If you want a little bit of Mexico, come to Kahlo! The ambience was great, the service was awesome and the food was delicious!
A wonderful meal at Kahlo with delicious food and excellent drinks. The service was fast and attentive, highly recommend for a very enjoyable evening!
Quite expensive, even for the neighborhood. Portions were very small. Food was tasty and drinks were good (although nothing so special as to warrant $19 price tag). Service was pleasant.
Everything from the live music and decor to the food and service was amazing. Our server Acri was amazing. He made us so comfortable on our first visit there. We first had the Kahlo & Rivera Guacamole, the Lobster Coctel. We then ordered Shrimp,Cochinita Pibil Tacos and Mole de Pollo. Everything was flavorful, well presented and filling.
I loved it and will be back.
To my suprise, a half of the waiters and waitresses didn’t wear masks.
Service was OK, and the food is OK Which is a little smaller portions.
We ordered 3 bottles of beer, and first 2 came as full glasses with the bottle with some leftover in the bottles.
The last one was just a full grass and no bottle, however, and it was not a draft beer!
Where was the rest of the beer?
This was a birthday celebration for my niece. The restaurant is beautifully decorated. The ambiance is low key candlelight intimate kind of vibe. Food was delicious and the staff is friendly and accommodating.
LOVED this place and will definitely be back. The food was incredible as well as the service and ambiance. I’ve been telling everyone about it and can’t wait to go back!!! Omg.
We got the guacamole with the mango in it, empanada trio, shrimp tacos, veggie rice and spicy margaritas. The place wasn’t packed, but I was ok with that because #Delta.
They have a neon sign in the back by the beautiful restrooms. This place is just so well done.
...did I mention I can’t wait to go back?
Food was excellent, drinks were flowing, and the service was prestige. Try the Los Cabo’s Tacos.. daaaaaamn
Great food and service but at least when we were there it was very Covid friendly. Only one worker wore a mask. No diners at any time wore one.
Love coming here. Great service and wonderful food! We will be back for sure!
I have never experienced Kahlo's exact approach to Mexican fare. The heightening of all of the flavors that already exist in the cuisine is nothing short of magical. Not one thing on the table was not hand-made. The tortillas, guacamole, and all other usual items found in a Mexican restaurant are just pushed to a new level. The décor is chic and comfortable all at once, which is no small feat either. I would say that this place is not to be missed if you're in Chelsea or anywhere on the lower West side of Manhattan. You will not be let down. Also, great cocktails, and even some mocktails.
Excellent in every way! Our second time dining here and we will definitely be back. Put it on your must-dine list!
