Less than a block from our hotel (the Belvedere), we stopped into Sombrero on our way home one night. Being that it was 8pm on a Saturday night....we expected a wait....but our party of 4 was seated in less than 5 minutes! Our dinners were delicious ...chili rellanos and chicken tacos... plates were empty within minutes, everything was fresh and... More

We enjoyed our food. Chicken fajitas, and enchilada dinner. Was good and large portion. The wait staff is very nice. The guacamole was Amazing and Chunky just like I love. Did not rush us as we were going to a play afterwards. The Salsa was just average. Overall it was good and Yes I will recommend this restaurant.

Went in mid-week for a drink and dinner. There were 6 of us. We were seated over in the corner and it could not possibly have been more cramped! The waitress was ok, not very friendly, but not outwardly rude. We ordered drinks, just beer, should not have taken as long as it did seeing that we were the only... More

Great little Mexican restaurant. The Margarita special for $5 was a draw card. We also had a large shared frozen Margarita one evening. The salsa offered each time to start was very good. The meals were promptly served although large for international visitors. Enjoyed the nachos and burrito.

We ate dinner at Sombrero's restaurant while in New York. Food was okay but not spectacular. Food portions a good size. I found mine a bit bland for Mexican food even though I asked for spicy. I just asked for hot sauce. I found the prices a bit high and tip was automatically added to the total. Not a bad... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
