    Service always runs either great or bad at Cantina. Last night was bad. I guess we should have stayed home or went elsewhere so we wouldn't have annoyed our server.... who obviously didn't want to be there.

    We must've had a look on our faces like we'd never seen a restaurant but we were in awe, bc the inside looked nothing like we'd pictured. We thought it was going to be small, dark & "weird". Chips are amazing- very thin. We went to town on the salsa! We got the mushroom enchiladas & chicken with mushrooms & artichokes- portions were perfect, booming with flavor. Rather than beans, our entrees came with sautéed zucchini & rice- the simplicity balanced the robust entree items & made the meal less bulky. We also had the barbacoa tacos & crab enchiladas- tacos were great but the enchiladas were too spicy & the cilantro rice was not the best. THEN!, we had the brownie AND apple pie desserts... brownie was lackluster but apple pie was incredible.

    I am a local bartender...I have never in my life paid over $19 for a coffee cocktail. I was charged $16.85 for Baileys & Frangelico, which normally in coffee you only need a half a shot of each...whatever...the waiter then proceeded to charge me $2.50 for the coffee itself. That would be like charging for a whole separate cola in a rum & coke...are you kidding me??? I already had several meals and cocktails on my tab, so it was not the money, just the fact that I felt nickeled and dimed. I would never do this to a guest at my establishment who is already purchasing the liqour. That's not even proper bar/restaurant/cocktail lounge etiquette!

    The inside of the restaurant was way too noisy to have an enjoyable dining experience without yelling at each other. Outside dining area was much better if you're with friends and you want to talk. I'm sure this environment is perfect for the younger crowds. Not so much for the mature diner.

It was my wife's birthday and I had to work, but they took care of everything and my family had a wonderful time! Food was excellent and service was fantastic.

    From the moment our group of mature birthday girls arrives to celebrate our happy occasion, we are delighted by great caring service, predictably wonderful food (including the amazing at-your-table prepared-to-order guacomole) and marvelous ambience (modern super neat decor and wonderful view of the architecturally amazing Tivoli of Summerlin)! This is definitely a gem for foodies and with incredible pricing as well - we have entrees for 4, beverages, made to order guacamole and a great birthday brownie (carmelized) all for less than $80.! We will continue to celebrate many more occasions there and recommend it to all our friends for a really fun and satisfying restaurant experience.

    Cantina Laredo is always good. I had the enchiladas, my boys like the quesadillas. We "splurged" and had the queso dip with pico and beef in it. Really delicious. I always want to save room for the apple pie dessert - I've had it once and it's delicious! I'm always too full though. Maybe next time I'll order it first?!?!

    Crowded with folks at the bar and maybe a little noisier than usual but so worth the visit. Our server, Diego, new to Cantina Laredo, is a great addition--very nice guy, knows his stuff, and makes a mean guacamole! Chicken fajitas and enchiladas at our table, all pretty much devoured. Have been here often and always impressed with the use of ingredients. Fresh and inventively spiced, absolutely love every bite.

    Been here a few times for happy hour... First time dining in the actual restaurant. Service seemed to better at the bar. Nonetheless, it was nice to have entree options versus just apps or bar food. Guacamole was handmade in front of us and it was good. I had the crab enchiladas which was really tasty.

    I know that's a give-away title for a review but it's true--we've been to Cantina Laredo half a dozen times now and each time has been absolutely great. Food is fun, not your ordinary/typical Mexican fare thanks to a very creative use of spice. Service is always spot on--we already have our "next" reservation made. Love it.

    My 3 neighbours and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Cantina Laredo! Each of us was very satisfied with our selections and with the service. We were especially impressed by our server, Claudia, who immediately turned the music down when we sat at our table - we had already moved to a quieter section and she let us stay put. We appreciated her doing that as we would not have been able to enjoy our conversation with the music being as loud as it was. The food was nicely presented and very tasty! We'll definitely be back.

    Super excited to go for Cinco de Mayo and glad for a reservation. Took extra long to get our drinks so think they waited to deliver our food so it was cold. It would have been exceptional but it had taken so long to get it the first time we didn't want to send it back. Would definitely give it another try.

    This is the second time we have been to this restaurant and it is one of the best dining places I have been. Such different menu choices and the salsa is so wonderful, the service is awesome and so warm and inviting. I loved what I ordered but I was jealous of my mother's enchiladas oh la la!!! Mushroom spinach with cream sauce should be against the law!!! I invited friends from out of town and some that just moved here they loved it and were so impressed. We had the apple pie with cinnamon ice cream and they all were ready to kiss me as I knew just what to finish the perfect meal

    Arrived on a Tuesday evening during spring break and ordered the happy hour $5 margarita. It was terrible. Too sweet, not one taste of tequila. Had to have server bring some lime (none came in it, I'm a bartender and most margaritas have it). Lime did not help! Server was very attentive and busser offered chips/salsa while I waited at high top for my party to arrive. We had dinner in restaurant and I had avocado artichoke burritos that were pretty good but served lukewarm. Server seemed busy and not as attentive as when we were there in December but was friendly. Restaurant wasn't busy but outside dining must've been.

    Fresh and interesting Mexican, not your typical neighborhood rice and beans. Great guacamole, prepared table side and spot on. Entrees were delicious--Enchiladas Veracruz was the star of the table, interesting preparation, stuffed with chicken, and great presentation. Not a heavy meal at all, didn't have that "OMG why did I eat all that" feeling that often follows a Mexican dinner--plenty to eat, just not a heavy/overwhelming meal. Table shared apple pie with cinnamon ice cream and that was amazing. Great margaritas, too. Very crowded bar but not a noisy atmosphere, good balance. A fun night out with great food.

    Would have rated this visit higher if...we had sat inside the restaurant instead of on the patio next to a table with their pet dog in tow. To have brought one's pet dog to dinner would have been okay, too had we not witnessed the dog owner take their dog out to do its business and actually witness the dog poo from where we were seated. That was a gross scene no diner has to ever experience!!!

    Read several reviews before choosing this restaurant which is located in a high-end shopping center in Las Vegas. Many cited poor service. Upon arrival, we were seated immediately and chips and salsa arrived. That's where the promptness stopped. It took a long time for our waiter to arrive, then only after inquiring with one of the bus staff. The reason? Someone thought our section was being covered by another person. We ordered drinks and guacamole. Our drinks arrived promptly and our order taken. The guacamole was quite good. The table was a rather small table and throughout the meal, no one seemed to care about removing plates and glasses no longer in use. It became quite crowded. The food was good, although not outstanding.
