“Love it!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Came here while on holiday 2 years ago and loved it. Came back last month and it was just as good. Nachos, guacamole, chimichangas... All really tasty! The mama margaritas are outstanding... It's a fun place, loud but for me it totally embodies the energy of New York!

Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

This place is loud.This place is expensive.This place sells watered down margaritas. I give up on finding a true Mexican Restaurant in New York City.

“Good food, strong drinks”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

The atmosphere is fun, albeit a little loud. Food is typical Mexican fare but still good. The margaritas are great and what I usually go there for. But prices are high which is why I don't go too often.

“Momma Margarita!”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

This is a really fun place to eat, the food was good and the frozen margaritas a real high point. We turned up without booking and had to wait maybe 10 minutes for a table, but this wasn't a problem as it was good to soak up the atmosphere. We had a great meal here but if I have once criticism it is that it was a little dark. i had to squint pretty hard to read the menu, and would have liked to have been able to see my food a little better too.

“2 words - MAMA Margaritas”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I have never been disappointed at Arriba Arriba! Every single time I go, it is a different fun experience. If I can tell you one thing it would be to 100% indulge in a Mama Margarita….you can stick your entire face in the gigantic glass they give, and they don’t skimp on the alcohol, and it is delicious! Oh, and needless to say the food is ahhhhhhmazing!
