This is right by my office and I am a HUGE fan of the drinks post happy hour. The margaritas are strong and very filling- believe me, they get the job done. I highly recommend the skinny margarita for the calorie conscious and the frozen marg if you're feeling it. Today was the first day I actually had food! The spicy chicken quesadilla was filling, the tortilla was crispy and the actual chicken had the right kick of spice that made it blend well with the tequila. Tater tots are fire. Warm and crunch Truffle fries were standard Rice and beans- rice was the winner here. Chips and salsa- chips are the thick crispy kind that have those air bubbles that lets you know these are ~fresh~ from the fryer. Gauc is 10/10
I love a rooftop bar! We decided to try another one of the amazing rooftops this time in Hell's Kitchen area close to our hotel. Cantina is a modern Mexican restaurant and much more lively than Haven. Perfect for Happy Hour! For HH you can get $8 Margaritas, wines or sangria. There is also Taco Tuesday specials and Wednesday they have big ass margaritas and big ass tacos for parties of 8. Not there for HH or a daily special, no worries because the party is still there! We ordered fresh guacamole and a pitcher of margaritas and had so much fun dancing to an amazing DJ. The views of the city were amazing and there are still covered areas so you won't be hot in the sun.
Food is terrible. Service is average. Drinks are ok. We ordered the Mac and cheese, quesadilla, hashbrown Benedict and the shrimp tacos. The Mac and cheese lacked one of the main ingredients...cheese! It was soupy and tasted like plain pasta with water and two piece of bacon. The "quesadilla" was a tostada with bad mixed ingredients and lack of taste. The hashbrowns had unflavored dry pork, a nasty-fatty holandese sauce. The shrimp in the tacos were old and probably frozen and the rice and beans tasted like 2 days old. My gf had the granada margarita had too much syrup to taste the other ingredients. I had the La Guayaba which wasn't bad but too strong for a drink that could give much more flavor with the ingredients it had. Despite all of these, the service could have been good enough to make sure we were ok but not even that happened. The employees seemed like they were there to hang out with their friends-coworkers and not to work. I had left all of my food in the place because it was so disgusting, the server could have asked if I liked the dish or not but decided to ignore it. Overall, this place needs to change it's way of doing business or it will close like other in the city that lack so many things when it comes to the food industry.
