  • Mexican Food in Contempory setting
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 1/21/2013
    First visit and what a great find. The mahi mahi fish tacos were generously filled with fish. The tortillas were with perfect with melted cheese. There were sides of cilantro rice and beans. A mole enchilada was filled tender chicken and the sauce was flavorful but not overpowering. Desert big enough for two was a chocolate walnut brownie (more like a very heavy cake) served with 2 scoops of ice cream on a sizzling plate. Then a sweet creamy sauce is poured over it and the smell is wonderful.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 1/20/2013
    Queso Laredo, beef tacos, tamale, chicken enchilada- it was all excellent. The Mexican brownie was decadently chocolaty. The cheese chile relleno was the best I've ever had (including when I visited New Mexico). The pomegranate margarita was delicious- not too sweet. I've also had the spinach enchilada and liked it very much. The two salsas offered with chips were great. The only complaint we had was my husband thought his berry mojito and Patron margarita were a little two sweet for our tastes. This is top-notch Mexican food. The courtyard and fountain outside is very nice (although the fountain is a bit loud).

    If you promote yourself as an upscale Mexican restaurant you should, at the very least, make your own margarita mix and tortillas. The margaritas were stale tasting and the tortillas were flabby. The fish in my "Signature Dish" fish taco was almost non-existent. The onions and meat in the fajitas were not caramelized. The mole sauced enchiladas were good; but the portion was quite small. The chips and salsas were very good, the rice and beans were good, and the patio area and fountain looked like a great place to sit. The decor inside was neutral and nice. Our server kept interrupting us to try to clear plates when we weren't ready, rushed us to pay the check when I was still eating, then ignored us when he had other tables.

    The chips and tableside guacamole are to die for. Definitely recommend that as an appetizer! Margaritas are very good as well. They've changed their menu and don't offer as many vegetarian options as in the past (currently there are on 2 listed) but I'm sure you get something customized by the chef if you ask! One of the best Mexican restaurants in the area.

    My wife and I go here a lot. It's close to home, has consistently great Mexican food, and a wait staff that cares about good service. The manager always stops at our table to ask how they are doing. I highly recommend the guacamole app made table side. And the carnitas dinner is fabulous!

    Great Mexican food with friendly & prompt service. It was quiet on the particular Friday evening we visited, which in Dr. Phillips (Restaurant Row) worried us a bit. That worry was soon put to rest as we really enjoyed an execellent meal (wonderful tableside made guacamole) and service that was stellar. Everyone really enjoyed their entree. Will definitely return again when in town.

    Service was excellent; we dined inside as Frankenstorm had recently passed Florida and made for very chilly evenings. I chose our table next to the fireplace. The table side guacamole was very good, the chicken tacos were excellent, and we shared a mulit-platter of a steak enchilada, a chicken enchilada, a tamale, and a chile relleno. Very filling for 2 persons (who eat normal portions), with leftovers. We'll return when in the mood for sit-down service Mexican. The dessert options looked good, but we were too full to order dessert.

    The food at Cantina Loredo was delicious. Make sure to order the made at table side guacamole! Quite possibly the best I've ever tasted! Our server, Isaiah was awesome, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Our meals were fresh and flavorful with just the perfect portions. There is a beautiful outdoor seating area with a fountain and a large bar with a huge wine menu! I will come here each time I travel to Orlando! Don't miss this one!

    We usually dine in the Winter Park area and we looked forward to dining on Restaurant Row. We had a reservation and probably did not need one. Our dinner comp[any arrived late and this really confused the host stand.The bartender recommended a margarita. The drink was tasty but almost too sweet. The margarita I had at the bar was much better than the watered-down margarita served at the dinner table.Once seated, our server was able to make some recommendations. The ceviche had lots of flavor but the seafood was in large cuts; I wondered if the line cooks were to tired to slice or dice. The carne asada pleased the table. The server was friendly. However the service fell short. We needed to ask, repeatedly, for napkins, drink refills.

    I went with a group of 19 people. They put us up in our own room, which was really nice. Service was a little on the slow side, which was OK this time because we wanted time to chat, but don't go there if you're in a hurry. The waiters were all friendly and pleasant. The guacamole was made right in front of us and was very good. The rest of the food was OK, but nothing special. The place itself is ample, classy and beautifully decorated.

    I am a fan of Cantina Laredo in Palm Beach Gardens -- their bar area is actually preferred seating for dinner. The Dellagio location lacks personality & the lighting is very bright -- polar opposite of the dimly lit, ambient vibe you get at the PBG location. Fiesta Fajitas were good - quail & pork the standouts. Margaritas were soso. We had a new server, so it wasn't streamlined but still we got what we ordered. I's say a B+

My wife has a food alergy. The chef actually took the time to come and talk to my wife about the menu and offer some suggestons. That was service. They were very busy. One of the many reasons they will have a guest for life. Thank you cantina. You are a diamond in the industry.
