This Santana Row restaurant
This Santana Row restaurant has very good food and service. On a warm day outdoor seating along the Row is most enjoyable, as diners can watch hundreds of shoppers. While a bit pricey, this is definitely a restaurant that I would recommend.

Servers were nice but a bit scattered as there were 3 so they overlapped in asking of we needed things.

Noticing the restaurant being rather empty we asked the waiter what time they were closing. He replied kindly "9PM"....it was already 10 PM!

Fresh, Interesting Mexican Food
Our group of five enjoyed our dinner on a Saturday night. Several of the items we ordered - including the salmon chimichangas - were delicious. Others were a little disappointing. Everyone in our group loves good food and enjoys trying new things. Three of us like our food spicy; two of us prefer it mild, although we can take a bit of spice. So we were disappointed when the tortillas and salsa arrived with three different salsas, and they were all too spicy for two of us. Why not have two hot ones and one mild one?
We had heard that their guacamole -- prepared tableside -- was delicious, but we found it a bit bland and were surprised by how little avocado there was for a $12 order. We weren't "wow'd" by Consuelo, but we would try it again.

Great drinks and fresh tortillas!
I have dined here several times and am always very pleased with the food and service. The tapas style dishes are perfect for sharing over a few margaritas!

I recently had a first date here and was very impressed by the service and attention to little touches like making Guacamole at the table to order! The wait staff showed the right balance of attention so we were never left waiting, yet not interrupted continually! It is not a "fine dining" decor but the food certainly is! The Camarones Reboso (stuffed shrimp wrapped in bacon) was to die for, I was so full and yet wanted to keep eating (yet didn't, first date and all!! Hehe).

great food, lukewarm service
Consuelo provides warm corn tortillas and delicious sauces for diners instead of the traditional chips and salsas. In our party we were 3 people. We asked for more tortillas and these never arrived, even though we asked a second time. We ordered the guacamole hoping we could eat this with our drinks. Twenty minutes later we had to ask for it again. Consuelo makes the guacamole fresh in front of customers. Customers provide input on the ingredients and spicyness. The guacamole was delicious.
The food is very good. The outdoor tables facing the Tequila Bar-another restaurant- are great since customers can enjoy the live music eminating from this establishment.

We love Consuelo!
We introduced some visiting Irish friends to your restaurant a few years back, and they loved it so much they requested a reservation during their current trip. We were not disappointed... Everything was as good as we remembered! See you next time...

Their chicken mole is rich
Their chicken mole is rich and chocolaty; not spicy -- personally, just how I like it. Their ceviche is a bit spicy; very fresh and yummy.
The churros are delightful. The staff are welcoming and there when you need them, even on busy days. My only wish is that they would invest in an espresso machine that was not pre-programmed (when the machine is out of something, the patron is out of luck, including if one asks for a de-caf variety).

Mexican w/flavorful flair
From the table prepared guacamole to the homemade corn tortillas served accompanied with the most flavorful sauces, if you enjoy Mexican, there is no room for error here. Our beverage of choice was the sangria and it was delightful. The prawns wrapped in bacon and the cornbread were extraordinary.

Enjoyed the flavors of the tapas. Salmon tacos were unique. The carnitas were dry and flavorless. Their salas are delicious

Tough pork....rapid service
We have been here several times and enjoyed it each time. For me, this was not the best food experience that I have had there. I had the Cochinita Pibil and I found it (pork) tough and dry. The two of us were out in less than 35 minutes. We were not in a hurry, nor did we feel rushed....or relaxed. How do you complain about the service being too fast? Maybe it was that they were a little over anxious to clear plates.

Great Place for Great Food
I love Consuelo. From the large variety of Margaritas, the salsas, the tapas and desserts you can't go wrong. Highly recommend the made at the table Guacamole, the Queso Fundido with Chorizo and the Camerones con Reboso. Don't forget a Mezcal Margarite, love that smoky flavor.

Not Your Average Mexican Restaurant
The food is excellent. Our group of four had the pork, lamb, chicken mole and prawns along with two side dishes and each dish was very unique and flavorful. The homemade guacamole is also very good. The portions are tapas-style so not very large. I think the guys left hungry so be aware that you will probably want to order more than one dish per person.

Good 1st experience
Had a group dinner here. Server was great. Very attentive, came by many times to check and to refill waters and other drinks. Didn't rush us. We were celebrating a birthday and they have us a complimentary chocolate desert. Guac was good, home made. Loud environment. Overall, good 1st dining experience at this place.

We had the Chimichanga de
We had the Chimichanga de Salmon (18) which was wrapped in delicate bunuelo dough and deep fried. The beauty of it though, was that it was still so light, non-greasy, yet cooked to perfection. The flavors were excellent. We also shared a Pozole verde (12). Deep flavors and plenty solid food to make this a very hardy meal.

Good Mexican fusion
We have eaten here many times. It is really good food. We have enjoyed most of their non-meat dishes
