our best night out in NY!!! – I'm from NY... was hosting a group of my friends from LA for the weekend and we decided to stop by Los Dados for some mexican food and flavor. After reading some bad reviews online, I was a little nervous, but it turned out to be the best night! our waiter was really funny and courteous, made useful suggestions and the drinks were deliiiiicious. we order the cucumber spicy margaritas, mahi tacos & steak quesadilla. my friends had a FANTASTiC time.. the dj played awesome mix of salsa and hip-hop. will definitely be going back soon. dont let the bad reviews scare you off from this place. other than the slightly slow service, its a very fun night out!!!
Really Los Dados – The bartender was rude, offered everyone at the bar chips n salsa but passed us over on 3 separate occasions. When we requested chips and salsa she still did not bring it. We had to ask her again and guess what…. received only chips. We had to ask her again for the salsa, then wait 10 minutes for it. It would be amusing if it wasn’t so sad.
When seated for dinner I ordered the Pablano Shrimp Risotto, which was served undercooked (undercooked as in it was CRUNCHY). When I asked for it to be cooked a little longer, (zap it in the microwave if that's what it will take) I was told, "This is how we cook it".
I have never heard of a restaurant telling patron who feels their meal is undercooked, “Too bad, this is how we make it,” definitely a first for me.
Overall it was a waste of time, money and chewing. I would have been better off stopping at a hot dog vendor. At least that would have been cooked food.
This place is one of the worst dining experiences I've ever had in New York and I was born and raised here.
Overpriced and Overtrendy – This place has everything going for it except the $20 mediocre entrees, and $14 6 ounce margaritas. The lighting is also so dark one can not read the menu. There are many better picks in this neighborhood, so dont get taken!!!!
I DON'T THINK SO! – All - This place clearly lives off location. There are 1,000,000 better restaurants to try in this great city then LOS DADOS. 1 I made a birthday reservation weeks in advance, my table preference was not honored. They know their 20% is coming for parties of 6 and higher and don't feel the need to live up to that. Food was awful not worth the price. The ambiance isn't all bad - but really do your self a favor and avoid.
Terrible - food was dry, service was worse. – After nearly being stung by bees outside, we headed inside where a bus boy spilled a glass of water on our table and then walked away before cleaning most of it up and leaving the wet used napkin on the table. It took us 20 minutes to flag down our "server" to get another glass. By this point we were truly hoping the food would redeem our experience at Los Dados, but we werent so lucky. The salad lettuce had not been washed and parasites were everywhere on the leaves, the chicken was incredibly dry. Overall the restaurant was a complete disappointment and I'm not sure how it's managed to snag decent reviews so far.
Just OK – Came here on a weekday. The drinks were terrific! We sat outside, nice night, the food took well over an hour. When the food came out, I couldn't even eat it! The tacos were not good at all! The only good side was the manager who was very apologetic and took care of the check! Would I go back? Perhaps simply because the drinks were so good and because the staff was nice.
Just plain bad – The weekend brunch was disappointing from start to finish. Terrible service (we waited a solid 30 minutes for tacos and a quesadilla), uninspiring menu, mediocre food--and all of it wildly overpriced. I don't remember the last time I felt so thoroughly ripped off at a restaurant in New York.
Extremley Disappointed – I have lived in NY for over eleven years and have been to just about every restaurant. I love Mexican and Suenos has been a great experience several times. Los Dabos on the other hand was beyond disappointing. Starting from the time of actually making the reservation and the attitude over the phone. Upon arriving, the "hostess" decided that the restaurants actual time was 15 minutes ahead of what every cell phone read. We had 8:30 reservations and she said that becasue we showed up 20 minutes late (actual time 8:40) that they do not hold the reservations past 15 minutes. Once that was cleared (20 minutes later), they decided to seat us in the middle of the resturant where I couldn't see the menu and hear the person next to me. The food was marginal, the steak was cold, the service was slow, and the overall price was NOT WORTH IT! They really need to get their act together if they want to survive. My advice - stay away...you would think you were in South Jersey with average at best food.
Ok, you must try the Orange Blossom. My girlfriends, and surprisingly the 2 guys i was with, drank them the entire night!
Friday night at Los Dados – I'm new at this, so please excuse me. Tonight, while wandering around in the meatpacking district, my friend and I stumbled upon this restaurant and we decided to give it a try. We had a great time!! The place was dimly lit, but the atmosphere was good. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. He suggested two entrees, so we ordered them. We were pleased. We had the shrimp enchiladas and the chicken quesadilla. They both had a bit of spice and so much flavor! We both had margaritas, but as we were finishing up our meal our waiter suggested that we try these chili palmer (?) shots. We did. We were blown away!!! It was a mix of sweet and spicy!! They were amazing!! You have to try them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Needless to say we order another round of those babies! It was a good experience, it was unexpected and that is why I felt the need to write about it!! I went there expecting neither good or bad, but I had a good time!!!
