Diner Reviews
  • "Good food, great service but kinda quiet on the night we went because spring break was in session for the county. The atmosphere was fun even though! Our waitress was so good to bring my daughter a piece of tres Leches cake with a candle in it and sang Happy Birthday to her. Made her feel very special."

  • "My husband and I were able to have a date last week while waiting for our daughter in Buckhead. We just wanted something casual so decided on the Cantina Taqueria. We started with a drink in the bar where the service was prompt and friendly. When we sat down, the restaurant was about half-full, but over the next hour became full and energetic. Our waiter was very personable and made great recommendations, including his boast of the best margarita in Atlanta. Our food was delicious and the margarita was very good. We will certainly go back."

  • "Clean, friendly atmosphere! Excellent selection of dishes! Only glitch, it s difficult to find--located in a large high rise office building! Turned out well worth the effort of finding it!"

  • "We have dined at Cantina twice, and would highly recommend the restaurant. The food is delicious (highly recommend Guacamole and Carnitas), The Agave Margaritas with fresh limes are wonderful. The decor is lovely. The service is very friendly, very helpful and very attentive. Cantina has become our go to Mexican restaurant."

  • "We visited this location and I really did fall in love with the food and the bar. Our server Megan was wonderful she recommended many different food choses as well as drinks. When we return we will ask for her again. The place was not that crowded we had a reservation at 8:30pm and was seated right away and Megan came over and helped us right away. The food and drinks were great."

  • "The food was good, but the wait staff left something to be desired. We ordered an apetizeer and when it did not arrive in a reasonable time, we ask the waitress about it. She said it was coming. A few minutes later the meal came, but no appetizer. She offered to send the manager over, but we said no. Food was plentiful, so appetizer was not needed, just poor service and follow up in my judgement. Great food and atmosphere."

  • "Arrived on time with a reservation, hostess said the table was not ready another 5 minutes. Went back after 10 minutes, hostess said still trying to locate some menus. She asked if our entire party was here, I said yes. Went back to the bar and waited another 10 minutes, no one came to notify us the table was ready. So I went back to ask and she said the table had been ready, and that she did not know that our entire party was here?!?? The appetizer was comped, but it to came out lukewarm. Waitress showed up sporadically after our drinks were empty. Ordered food, most of it came out on together, had a friend without food for another 15 mins. Just overall a hit & miss kind of place, I won't be back."

  • "The server didn't have a clue. I asked for several different vodkas and she kept coming back saying they didn't have that one (after she told me they did have it) - and these were popular brands like Tito's and Stoli. Then for my vodka & soda she brought me a pint of club soda and asked me if I wanted the vodka on the rocks or in a shot glass! Really? For 2nd round I asked for a BOTTLE of Bud light -- she brought me a draft."

  • "I go here strictly for the skirt steak and chipotle mashed potatoes. I LOVE it! I've been many times and have tried a few other things on the menu but I always come back for the skirt steak. Always cooked mid-rare like I like it, tender and juicy, nice sized portion, and the balsamic reduction is the perfect accompaniment with those potatoes! I also loved their chips and salsa, although on the last visit, the salsa recipe seemed to have totally changed and tasted like canned tomatoes without all the smokiness and complex flavors it had previously. Drinks are hit or miss.. the red sangria is not good. But the cocktails have been good or great depending on the day. Service has been consistently good. I'll be back for the skirt steak!"

  • "We made a lunch reservation because we were short on time between appointments. When we arrived, the same size party in front of us didn't have a reservation and the hostess said '15 minutes'. When we got to the hostess, she told us the same 15 minutes even though we had a reservation. We told her that we were very short on time and we didn't have an extra 15 minutes, we would have to go somewhere else. Somehow another hostess said, 'not to worry' and sat us within 3 minutes. Good thing. Food was good, our server was fast and efficient. We got to our appointment without issue. Success."

  • "I will start off by saying that the best part of my experience was how wonderful the hostesses were. It sort of went all down hill from there. My server succeeded but wasn't very "suave" when trying to upsell the margaritas that turned out to be average at most. I ordered some tacos. The trailer park taco was tasty. The "porkie" taco was very fatty and I couldn't even finish it. When I told my server his response was "Yeah well thats how it is supposed to be." Out of all the H2S restaurants this is my least favorite. I will be going to Noche next time to satisfy my taco craving."

  • "Our waiter was not friendly, polite, or attentive at all. There was a group of 6 of us, and maybe because he knew he would automatically get 18%, he didn't care. I will not be returning because of his poor service."
