Good guacamole made fresh, dishes were tasty and moist, and staff and manager were very speedy. Food came very quickly, which is so nice. A good find, and a really good value for money.

We stopped here before a concert at The City Winery and the food and drinks were great. The corn on the cob appetizer was excellent; the best corn we've ever had- with lime, chili, butter and Parmesan cheese. Yum! The steak salad was great as...More

Beware of the on-line reservation system. It's not "live" and apparently is only checked once they start serving dinner. I placed a reservation on-line, made plans with friends coming in from out of town, and then, three hours later, got an e-mail saying that there...More

We stumbled on La Camelia after finding that we couldn't get into the restaurant that we had planned to go to, and I am glad we did. Neither my companion nor I was particularly familiar with this part of NY, so we weren't sure what...More

it's actually real Mexican food. NOt tex mex. No gloppy cheese. Just honest food - in an unpretentious setting. Go for the guacamole right away - chunky, made to order, 3 levels of heat. ask waiters to recommend - they are honest about too much...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
