    What a wonderful Friday evening we had at Quetzalcoatl. The food was great, drinks (Sangria and Margaritas) were delicious, the service and the entertainment were excellent and the atmosphere was wonderful. We had a leisurely dinner, enjoyed beautiful music and a complimentary dessert and did not break the bank. Will definitely be back and will recommend!

    I took my girlfriend here for her birthday. The menu looked good but we weren't sure what to expect. Boy were we impressed!! Excellent staff, very polite! The food was unbelievable and the drinks were great too. I would highly recommend the filet mignon and the tequila chicken pasta. The Guacamole was a little expensive but very delicious as well.

    My husband, father and I dined at Quetzalcoatl last Saturday and loved every moment. All the food was fresh and tasty -- the star was my husband's Chile en Nogada, a traditional Mexican dish of a stuffed poblano pepper with meats, fruits and nuts, covered in a light brandy sauce and fresh pomegranate seeds .... amazing! They had a talented guitarist adding lovely background music that was perfect for the mood and never intrusive. But the best part of the meal by far was the excellent service. The staff was knowledgeable and attentive and our waitress was perfection. My father is not a huge fan of Mexican but he said he can't wait to return .... that goes for all of us!

    First, we are from Texas and we are very picky with respect to Mexican food. Great selection of tequila for an exceptional margarita made with real squeezed limes. Tasty guacamole. I had the special pork enchiladas. My husband had the beef enchiladas. Excellent food and wonderful service. And the entertainer on the guitar was a nice touch for the evening.

    That's awful food and awful service. Our waitress disappeared right after she took our order. One of our diners wasn't brought his food while another one received a portion of his. I ordered a side of rice and beans and they tasted like I was on a cruise ship. If they would only add a few more servers and other staff and change their chef, they may quickly move up the ranks to mediocre. (My apologies for knocking cruise ship food as it isn't this bad).

    This is one of my favorite Mexican restuarants. The restuarant has a great vibe for everyone in every age. I do have to say that becasue of the loud music you cannot have a conversation becasue you will not be able to hear anything.

    The free appetizer and dessert cannot make up for the low-quality food. The shrimp ceviche had apple in it, and was bland. The tequila shrimp were cooked too much and did not have much of a taste to them, either. My Mole Chicken left a lot to be desired. The server also forgot our sodas. He took the order ONLY for the appetizers in the beginning, and then only after could we order the main courses. That has happened to me once before, and in that restaurant, too, the food was bad. I would NEVER go back there. It was one of the WORST Mexican restaurants I have ever been to.

    I took my friend to Quetzalcoat for her Birthday dinner, her 1st time there. I had been there a few times before. She was very impressed with this scenic restaurant, nicely decorated, live guitar player and the delicious food. The staff is very nice and they bring over a complimentary appetizer and complimentary dessert. We ordered the Enchilada Suizas with Shrimp and another with chicken, which were delicious. I definitely recommend this upscale Mexican restaurant...a little more expensive than some Mexican restaurants, but the whole experience is well worth it!

    The food is always delicious and presented with great care -- the salads in other restaurants appear to be an afterthought. Quetz does if as carefully as the main dish, with veggie variety and cut fine, crisp and fresh--so important for healthy eating. The musical performance addition is wonderful--can be seen and heard from the balcony while still maintaining some privacy Guy is a gem, as are the attendants. When I go out, I usually end up at Quetzalcoatl--and I'm never disappointed. Quite the contrary--I always leave with a bigger smile than when I entered!

    My boyfriend and I felt like Mexican food so we stumbled across Quetzalcotl and we were pleasnlty surprised . The guacamole and salsa was amazing as appetizers I could eat that all day . The entrees were alright but nothing out of this world. We did receive a free appetizer and dessert on the house . The only thing we didn't like was that our food came out so fast right on top of each other we didn't even have room to fit all the plates on our table. The servers were friendly and great at answer all out questions. But the meal was just very rushed.

    Went her for a birthday dinner on a Sunday with my husband and children. Wasn't crowed so we were seated right away. The food is very authentic mexican with the exception of it being pretty mild. It was delicious and the portions were a good size with out being too big or small and the staff was extremely attentive. They even gave us a small plate of nachos and flan complimentary. Would definitely go back again. Perfect if you are craving Mexican lunch or dinner.

    We had a 7:15 reservation and when we arrived on time we were told that there were no tables available because they were very busy. There was a list of people who had reservations that were still waiting from 6:30. We asked if we should wait at the bar because we were told that it would be at least 30 minutes. We were then told the bar was too crowded and to leave and come back in half an hour. We left and did not return

    We have been going to Quetzalcoatl for a number of years. It is a great place for families and large groups. The owner and wait staff quickly remember you and welcome you each time you arrive. There is always a comped appetizer or dessert (or both.) The menu has enough variety beyond the usual Mexican choices although they are also excellent. We'll worn the trip.

    First time at Quetzalcoatl. I had the chicken fajita which was good. The complimentary chips and salsa, a small appetizer and a small desert after the meal is a nice touch! The margarita's are very good. If you will be having more than one margarita go with a half or full pitcher, this is a better value. Over was very happy with the service and food I would return.

    I'm not a fan of Mexican food but the staff here makes me want to have Mexican food again. I couldn't believe how attentive the staff was to our group. When we arrived we were seated immediately. I would say about 4 different workers in the restaurant would check up on us to see if we needed anything. The guitar player that came around to sing was very friendly. It felt like the staff was family by the time we left. The menu had a free large selection compared to other Mexican restaurants where I have eaten.

    We love Quetzalcoatl! It is one of our first choices when getting together with friends and family. The service is always great - extremely friendly and fun, and the food is delicious - you can choose from a menu that includes your typical Mexican dishes to more exotic Oaxacan specialties, like dishes made with mole (pronounced mo-lay) sauce. I should also mention their great margaritas and other bar delights! Always a great time!

    Good food. Authentic Mexican. Service was ok. The staff was very polite and friendly, however, we had to wave them over a few times to order drinks that took a while to come. The restaurant did make up for it though with complementary appetizer and dessert. We didn't even complain! Would definitely return and recommend.
