Nice cozy place – This is a nice cozy place great atmosphere and nice decor. My boyfriend and I went here for restuarants week and we had a great time the menu was pre fixe obviously. We had the lamb sliders which were delicious I reccomend them highly, for the entree I ordered the wrong thing if you are new to organic hint dont order organic chicken that was my mistake, the desert was delicious ice cream, bananas, blue berrys. The waiters were great very nice, patient, friendly. We had a table in the back which was awesome because they had bachata, merengue, and salsa playing. I only wished they had a dance floor. Overall great place I reccomend.
Great Food – Went to Crema the other night. Food was terrific for the most part. The service was also excellent. The waiter new when to help and when to let us enjoy our meal.
For the main meal, I had the Carne Asada which was delicious. We also got the pork taquitos which were out of this world.
We did have salsa and chips when arriving which I was not crazy about, I would have preferred pico de galo instead of the guacamole and two other salsas that accompanied them.
I would definitely go back and the Margaritas were out of this world.
Never go here – My friend and I went here this evening for Cinco de Mayo. We waited 45 minutes for a table (no problem as it's 2 hours everywhere else and we didn't make reservations). Once we sat down we waited and waited. I had to get up and ask a bus boy to clear the table from the people before us. My friend got up and got us menus. Then the bus boy told me to order with the maitre'd. He said that was incorrect and would send someone over. We finally got fed up with waiting we walked over to the bar to order. We waited about 25-30 mins for all of this. My food came out in 10 mins and my friends food came out 30 mins AFTER that. Holy cow. I spoke with the GM/Maitre'd and he was defensive and said we didn't have reservations and they were busy and asked 'well, what do you want me to do about it?'. We were so patient at a restaurant that wasn't nearly as busy as any other Mexican Restaurant and the GM was bordering on yelling at us. Don't go here- ever.
Worth the Trip – Had a an excellent meal with equal service.The expierence started at the bar with ginger martini served by Rescalla.He was a very professional bartender and host.The big eye tuna and the peking duck breast were both great choices,will definitely go back.
Creative and Delicious! – Despite the negative reviews, my experience was quite pleasant! I went for lunch and had tasty sangria and mexican food that was displayed in a unique way. I appreciated the artistic plating. When a dish catches my eye, it makes me want to take out my camera and snap a picture of it. That's what intrigues me and draws me back to a restaurant! Overall, the taste lived up to the looks and I left satisfied!
Dont bother... – Crema Restaurant was a total waste of money. My girlfriend and I went there last night. Our bill with tip was $150, and I have had $2 tacos off the back of a truck that were fresher and tastier then the mexican cuisine at this place. Even the drinks were bland. I hated my margarita and my sangria tasted like fruit juice from a box. The guacamole had no flavor. Our entrees were bland and old, or stale or something, I don't know what was wrong with it exactly but it wasn't freshly made. of and the service was only medium....especially at the bar, before we were sat at our table, we had a drink at the bar and I had to wait and wait before I was asked if I'd like anything.
If this place slashed all their prices in half, then maybe possibly I would consider going back.
Authentic MexiCan't food!!!!! – If you want to be ripped off then you must come to this place. the only nice thing about it is the decor. the food is mediocre, they should call it Tex-Mex not Mexican. anyway, overpriced and authentic Mexi-Can't food.
We have detected the following inappropriate words in the pros: g. a. y. s. !!!!!! LOL O.M.G.
slowwww – The food was very nice and amazingly presented...but the service, not good at all. Our drinks took forever to arrive because the staff was more interested in talking to each other. We probably would have ordered another round but didnt bother. They also where snacking from the chips in the back, yuck
All around amazing experience – Wow! What a simply wonderful experience we had at dinner on Saturday April 18. First, the server, Erica, was the sweetest, nicest server I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She checked on us throughout the duration of the meal and made excellent reccomendations for entrees and dessert. The food was superb! Really top notch and all three of us loved what we ordered. Towards the end of the meal, the chef Jullieta came out and gave us all complimentary spices and a delicious pineapple-infused tequila to sip! It was lovely. I really cannot say enough wonderful things about this experience. Thank you so much for a wonderful birthday dinner! This is one of the best restaurants I have been to in NYC!
Amazing food,service and ambiance – Outstanding food, service, and ambiance. This is a great date place or for a special occasion. The food is very contemporary with a wide variety of intense flavors that are presented to you in a pleasing and unique way.
