The food is good, the waiters attentive and the view of Fifth Ave. is interesting. Always had a good time at this restaurant and the prices are very reasonable.

Attention to detail is key here. Get the Ceasars salad which is made right at your table. The steaks are great and the Madre potatoes are a must! Super wine selection and they are wonderful at recommending without going for your pocket book.

Our group of 4 had a late lunch meal at Madre Tierra. All the meals and drinks were very good as was the service and restaurant atmosphere. The price point was good for the quantity and quality of food. Will visit again.

Went for dinner last night. Will start with the good things, the dining room was lovely and the guac made tableside was good. Now for the rest, the lobster spaghetti and Campesina (SP?) Salad were bland, bland as in no spice and virtually no flavour....More

Unfortunately this was our worst meal in Mexico..... along with being the most expensive. The service is some of the most erratic and bizarre I have ever experienced in a restaurant from having several of our food and drinks choices questioned and the waiter pulling...More
