Wasn't impressed. – We opted for the restaurant week menu. The flavors were good but I thought the grilled hanger skirt steak was rubbery and it tasted weird. We ordered hot apple cider and hot Mexican chocolate. I don't know if I would go back for the a la carte, I wasn't very impressed.
Amazing mexican – My favorite mexican restaurant in the city. The fresh guacamole is made right at the table. It goes great with their fantastic yummy drinks. The outdoors is beautiful and feels very roomy. Service is great and so is the atmosphere.
Our waitress was very sweet and helpful.
Killer Mexican Food, Good Drinks, GUACAMOLE – You have to start with the food & menu when talking at DC Soho. It's the central part of the experience and doesn't disappoint. The guacamole, made fresh to order, is an absolute must and it exceeds expectations.
The rest of the menu has high quality Mexican style food and its worth sharing amongst people at your table.
The marg's are a must and the pitchers are re-filled quickly.
The wait staff is professional & always quick to offer a tip. The hosts have to deal with too many demanding people, but if you have a reservation or if you are polite it's not an issue. I would recommend making a reservation or calling ahead.
Margs and Guac is all they have to offer. – I have come here a few times for drinks and guac but that is all I will be ordering after actually coming here on a date. The server was in his own world, the food came out half cooked and the manager had the nerve to argue about not taking it off the bill.
Don't eat here, just order a few drinks at the bar. That's it!
Used to be a favorite... – Before last weekend, my husband and I found ourselves here a couple of times a month and really loved the place. But our last Dos Caminos meal started off with dirty water glasses and plates (guac & salsa bits) followed by a dirty cocktail glass - salsa mimosa anyone? These things can happen and can generally be easily resolved, but our waitress made the process rather painful. My entree arrived as a 'steak' taco instead of the 'fish' tacos I ordered. Again, our waitress came by to assert that she had HEARD me order the steak tacos (I haven't eaten red meat or poultry for 17 years). At the end of the meal, we were brought coffee full of grounds and 'floating' crumbs and something the manager described as 'curdled heavy whipping cream' to lighten it with. He sent our watress over with fresh coffee and the standard creamer and she delivered it with an astringent 'Let's see how THIS works for you!' Worst of all, we were REALLY apologetic about asking for these things to be corrected and almost embarrassed that things kept going wrong with our meal. The manager seemed dismissive of the whole scenario even after being shocked by the mess our waitress brought us for 'coffee'. Does Dos Caminos really think that their customers are asking for too much by requesting clean tableware, the food that they ordered and food that is edible? These are all things we could have accepted as 'accidents' had they been resolved quickly and curteously. If you feel that the blatantly careless service and disgergard for cleanliness standards would detract from your enjoyment of the fabulous food, avoid this place.
I watched the thug manager harass a neighborhood resident – We had the most horrendous dining experience ever. My girlfriend as I was at the restaurant on Thursday Evening around 11 PM, May 7th. We watched and videotaped on my cell phone the manager of the restaurant and staff, go out and harass a local neighborhood resident who was standing on Houston Street minding his own business, according to the police which the restaurant staff called, who was waiting for his brother to bring his extra set of apartment keys because he had been locked out.
We watched the staff, and I don't know what they were on, but they were peering through this wrought iron outdoor garden fence at him. Real paranoid behavior. The cops came. Obviously from what we could hear of the conversation, this was a 50 year resident of the neighborhood standing outside of his building waiting for a relative to bring his extra keys.
People like this come in and ruin neighborhoods. The food is terrible. This is purely tourist trash. I agree with the previous reviews. You have to be a poor consumer to waste your time here with all of the wonderful options New York City has to offer.
Tourist Trap, Don't Waste Your Money – I had read great reviews. Obviously, they were written by the owner. The food was mundane. The service was less. They are far overpriced. I watched the couple next to me do lines of coke on the table in full view of the staff. I was there with my family. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone. They have a great location if you like a mouth full of soot from the passing trucks. I wish I could get my money back. An awful experience.
Worst Experience Ever – I have NEVER had a worst experience than this. It was my husband's birthday. I called to make the reservation. I explained it was a birthday and I wanted my own cake brought out.I brought the cake the day before. I called to remind the hostess the day of, then faked a bathroom break when we arrived just to make sure everything was a go after we were seated outside. It started to rain and we were moved inside. The inside was dark and stuffy. The food was really bad and EXPENSIVE! The server was distracted
The server brings out a cupcake with a candle. The whole surprise was ruined and the server just ran off.
Now it just GETS REALLY BAD: this female comes over and asks what the problem is, no introduction, just attitude. she says with a snotty voice as that she is the manager, and again what the problem is. I explain calling, bringing the cake, calling again to remind, then confirming after we arrived. I explain how important this was. To this she responds, "So what do you want, the cake?" Then she storms off, brings my cake back in it's box, and the bill (over $200) , throws it on the table, and walks away without a word. No apology, no name, and the server never came back. I honestly think this woman was psychotic. My biggest regret was that we even paid the bill. When we walked out with our damaged cake in a box, everyone seemed to look away.
This whole experience surpasses bad and borders cruel.
Excellent Guac and Margaritas, HORRIBLE everything else – Dos Caminos SoHo is popular mostly because of its trendy SoHo location and the abundance of celebs that frequent the restaurant. Overall the restaurant is just average. First of all, the seats are in EXTREMELY close quarters. You literally feel like you are sharing a table with the strangers next to you! I ordered mild guacamole and it was probably the best guacamole I have ever tasted. The prickly pear margarita was great too! The appetizers were a disaster. The smallest little tacos I have ever seen and they were soggy. The crab empanadas had the consistency of bodily fluids. For my entree I got the Dos Enchiladas. I LOVE enchiladas but what I had was awful! Has the chef ever tasted and enchilada before? My date got the shrimp quesadilla that would have been decent they left off that awful sauce and if the shrimp wasn't so tough. We couldn't listen to each other speak because the music was so loud and we were sitting so close to the people next to us. I couldn't believe how much our bill ended up being with such mediocre food! Save your time and don't waste your hard earned money on this dump. I take that back; order some guac, grab a margarita or two, and then go elsewhere for some real food.
