A really good dream transports you to another world where every discovery is captivating and delightful. So it is with Suenos, which means "dreams" in Spanish.
Suenos reflects Executive Chef/Owner Sue Torres' love of all things Mexican. From the decor, to the selection of tequilas, to the insistence on a true cocinera, or tortilla lady, working on a comal in the main dining room, Torres pays homage to the centuries of tradition that have woven together Mexico's flavors and ingredients. The menu's dishes reflect Torres' understanding of the country's regional diversity as well as her classical culinary training.
Award-winning beverage consultant Steve Olsen, assisted in the creation of a special tequila and mezcal list, featuring many small artisanal producers. The wine selection offers perfect pairings with Torres' dishes, while signature cocktails complete the festive setting.

I thought I was back in Mexico!! – We started with appetizers of corn bread with black bean dip, and guacamole and chips. Yum. Yum. The server suggested the dish the chef made when she was on Iron Chef which was cod, salsa verde, banana mashed (which was tart spicy & sweet). It blew me away!
My date had steak tacos with grilled corn on the cob which he raved about for days. Not only was the food the excellent, the server anticipated my every need but did not hover.
Cannt wait to introduce my out of town friends to Suenos!!
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE CORN! – I eat mexican food at least once a week and I my girfriend and I went her this past week. It was tough to find bc it is a little hidden but it was awesome. First off, the margaritas had fresh ingredients not the puree crap from the box . I had the duck tacos and she had the enchiladas, but the thing that made me write this review was the corn!!!! They grill it with some spices, cheese and i don't know what else, but it was great. I would go back in a heart beat, but I hope you can't find it.
Super Cute! – I had a great time here last Sunday night. I live in the area but never made it to Suenos. I'm glad that I finally had the chance. The food was delicious! The ambiance was quiet and cozy, something hard to find in Chelsea. I did think the food was a little over priced, especially for Mexican. The staff was really friendly, but once the food came to our table they disappeared. Fortunately, the chef prepared great food that didn't need any additional attention. I would recommend Suenos.
I was just reading about Suenos on Behind the Burner. com - it's such a cozy, delicious spot!
LOVE this restaurant! – Great place for happy hour margaritas, a quiet, romantic dinner or a big birthday celebration. The food is consistently excellent, including the seasonal specials, and the staff is friendly and attentive. And I've never had better 2-for-1 margaritas in NYC.
Excellent – Went with a large group, everyone loved their food. Drinks were very good as was the service. Highly recommended for groups or for a party
flavorful food, friendly service & chef – Went with a large group of people. Chef came out to say hello and ask how our food was. Service was excellent. Food was very flavorful. Cozy room with a skylight.
Yummy – My friends have been bugging me to go to Suenos for a while and I finally got there recently. Delicious food that tasted very fresh and cooked perfectly. Drinks were also excellent as was the waitress we had that night. Definitely recommended
Didn't think the food was really impressive - it was not horrible, but nothing special. Ordered the baby spinach and the hanger steak . Both were pretty forgettable.
Didn't really enjoy the ambiance or service either. The service wasn?t so good as I thought.
This place has definitely been on my list of places to go for a while, glad I can finally check it off! Won't be going back - too many better places in town.
Average – Good. That's about it. For the price, perhaps I expected too much. The menu underwhelmed (though the dessert was great). The service was neither friendly, attentive, nor helpful. I can now check it off the list, but I wouldn't recommend it.
