Second Rate on Second Avenue – The previous review had it right--if you don't like Mexican food perhaps Cilantro is the place for you. Otherwise, you can do much better. The menu is far too ambitious for the obviously limited capabilities of the kitchen, which would be better served sticking to basics; the very young clientele would probably prefer that anyway. The outdoor seating is nice, especially given the ear-shattering sound level emanating from the fresh out of college crowd drinking inside.

Great margaritas and fajitas – Coming from a person who's not a big fan of Mexican food, I can say that I really like Cilantro. First, happy hour - 1/2 price margaritas - strong and tasty. Then the steak fajitas are absolutely fantastic - juicy and large portion - and 1/2 price on Monday nights (comes to about $7.50). I've had other stuff there too and its all pretty good.

Food stinks, get drinks. – I thought the food was pretty lousy, actually. The sangria is great though. Maybe if you drink enough of it the food gets better!

MARGARITAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Cilantro is a great restaurant. The food is excellent, especially the Ceviche, and the black angus fajitas. You can not leave Cilantro's without trying the Margarita's on the specials menu. I prefer mine on the rocks, no salt. They are in a word SMOOOOOOOOOOOTH!!!!!!!!!

half price fajitas – the fajitas are great, and on mondays you can get them for half price! What a deal! My wife and I always enjoy Cilantro. Staff is always nice. The pork chops and quesadillas are excellent. Margaritas are slightly overrated, so I drink beer. No worries!

2 great locations – I used to live in the 90's and loved the Cilantro on 2nd Ave. Now I live in the 60's and love the Cilantro on 1st Ave. Great chips, great margaritas and great food.

Top notch in all areas – started off with the salsa and the fancy chips, and a very flavorful, very strong margarita.. they are definitely not overrated, and anybody who enjoys margaritas owes it to themselves to try one here.. then my girlfriend and I had the porterhouse steak with bourbon sauce, and lobster mashed potatoes.. yes, it was every bit as good as it sounds.. for dessert, the large brownie is to die for, and is served with whipped cream, strawberries, and chocolate and strawberry sauce.. we had the back room to ourselves, as it was late, and it was beautiful.. the service was superb as everybody from the owner to the bus boy asked us how it was and wished us a great night as we left.. definitely a nust if you are visiting the city.

Great Brunch! – The brunch menu has a good selection, with a nice variety. The food was excellent( especially the habanero wings appetizer) and the ingredients were of exceptional quality.
