    The waitress was nice. The place was under-staffed. Service was SLOW. Had to raise my hand like a school girl to get someone's attention. The place is nice and quieter than the Mexican one across the street but the food is not as good.

    THIS will be THE place for my wife and I to enjoy higher end Mexican cuisine in a very lovely setting. I am recommending it to my friends and will be taking family their when they come to visit. Whether we are looking for a night out for just the 2 of us or a larger group, Cantina Laredo can accommodate either just fine. We were thoroughly impressed by the meals we had. Will be back soon.

    The decor is inviting. The menu is creative and relatively broad with choices even for those who may not like classic American-Mexican fare. Table side guacamole was excellent and the salsa was both flavorful and quite unique. Even the chips were exceptional - thin, fresh and crispy. Service was excellent. A party of 8 was greeted and served by a team who were spot on with their service. And the greeting and attentiveness felt genuine.

    Since it was a holiday evening, I'm willing to give them a break. The service was very slow and unattentive. Took about 10 minutes to get a 2nd Casa Rita and more chips for the Queso. We've been there numerous times (one of our favorite local places to dine) and this was the exception. The food was very good and the Casa Rita's excellent.

    I made the reservation using open table the night before for 20 ppl for 2 pm they had everything ready for us when we arrived.My party turned out to be more like 25ppl and they did not have a problem with it they just added one more table. Our waitress was great she was very accommodating she allowed us to order of their regular menu. The food was delicious everything was cooked perfect with just the right amount of seasoning. I would definitely recommend .

    We were given a coupon for free quacamole at the Cantina Laredo at our resort in Orlando. We thought we would take a chance and try something new and different. And we found an awesome place. The food was great and authentic to what we have had in Mexico. The service was great, no need to ask for anything as our needs were anticipated.

    Consistently very good food but our waitress was personality less! She was busy but looked like she was just going through the motions. Forgot to deliver our second drink order until close to when dessert arrived. Bad. Valet is weak maybe because his girlfriend was sitting next to him on the curb all night. The hostess asked our "small for her age" 6th grader if she wanted a kids menu. She wasn't happy. If the food weren't so good, I wouldn't go back.

    We had 9 people on a Saturday night with 2 kids. They sat us back in there private room. It was great we put tables together to make it was for all of use to have elbow room. Being placed in the back room was awesome the kids were able to get up and spend individual time will all our friends and not being concerned that we were disturbing anyone else. It was like having a private party without the large price tag.

    I was looking forward to our dinner at CL as we used to visit one many times when we lived in Texas. I was thoroughly disappointed in every way. Food and service were just fair. What really upset me was the price of the daily fish on the menu was not the same on my bill. A significant difference with no good explanation given when I asked. We will not go back

    The location and interior of Catina Laredo would lead you to believe you are about to experience some delicious high-end Mexican cuisine. Unfortunately, the food is just average if not below average. We started with the table-side prepared guacamole which was not only bland but the avocados were very hard and needed another day or two to ripen. We each ordered different tacos which flavor-wise were ok but nothing special at all. The rice was terrible and the beans were mushy. Overall, we were very unimpressed. We've had better Mexican food out of our local food truck for a third of the price.

    I have to say that the restaurant staff was very accommodating. I had to change my reservation x3 after learning that my brother's flight was delayed, and then he got stuck on I-4. Which should come as no surprise to anyone. Food was fantastic, other than ordering a filet to find it butterflied and rather fatty. It was a special though, so I assume that it is not served all the time. If it is, it needs to be trimmed better.

    My boyfriend and I dined here on Valentine's Day and had such high expectations. When we arrived there was only one Valet runner getting cars so the driveway was backed up. Once inside we had to wait another 10 minutes to be seated. None of the tables were set with napkins or silverware. The carpet was lifting up from the floor and there were chips everywhere. The food was subpar for the price. Our server was the only one working our section in the back and desperately needed help. It was impossible for her to be as attentive as she needed to be to everyone. In all - do expect too much from Cantina Laredo. We will not be back

    Food is consistently good. Waiter was a frequent visitor refilling glasses as the food can be spicy. When he made the guacamole he could have asked if we wanted all the additional ingredients, which I overheard a waiter at the table next to us ask the couple if they wanted everything in it. only negative....one of our dinner guests did not receive her meal until 5 minutes after the rest of us received ours so we waited until she received hers (proper etiquette to wait) so our food was a little cool when hers came out. A star goes out to the host as one of our guests could not find the restaurant and not only did he talk to her on the phone to help get her to the restaurant but he went outside the restaurant to meet her..

    We usually don't frequent chain resturaunts but we will visit this one again! Very fresh ingredients. Light flavorable fantastic service. Everyone loved their meals! Skinny Margaritas were wonderful. Light crispy warm chips with just the right amount of salt and nice salsas. Refilled without even asking! Two rellenos offered, one wrapped in steak were winners along with enchiladas Veracruz which were topped with fresh shredded veggies! Thank you to our server Diane and Rick the manager. Dessert. Yes have it. Triple Leche cake and Mexican Apple pie!

    To quote a member of our dining party- "A great meal... You can always judge a Mexican restaurant by whether or not they put shredded lettuce on the food" Catina Laredo is not about shredded lettuce! The food was fresh, the guacamole is a must- made table side- and the adult beverage menu is extensive and intriguing. From a variety of margaritas and sangrias... Our table of eight received impeccable service and our special orders. I would recommend not eating at all during the day so that you have room for several baskets of the thin, crispy chips and your meal.

    We were seated promptly by a friendly greeter. Our server was scrambling. He was friendly but he had 6 tables, you cannot provide attentive service with 6 tables…we counted them. They brought the wrong appetizer and those things happen but when the correct app was delivered by the manager he mad a negative comment about the kitchen trying to be funny, I guess. Poor taste. Their food used to be executed in a much better way. If you have been here before, you know their prices are high for Mexican but we enjoyed the food and service…not this time.
