    Food was just okay, the server was attentive but the place was empty. Arrived for a slightly romantic dinner and was seated in the bar. When we asked if we could be seated near the windows we were told there were seats open in the main dining area, but the hostess continued to hand us menus and left. Not sure why they weren't willing to move us. We finished eating within 30 minutes and went back to our hotel. Will choose someplace different next time.

    We live by McKinney and wanted to find a restaurant downtown to visit the Reunion Tower with our teenagers so I selected this restaurant based on reviews. The service was excellent, the ambience was nice but the food was not that great which was disappointing. I could have eaten at a much better Mexican restaurant back in McKinney/Allen and done better. Luckily this was not the sole reason for making the trip downtown!

    Although, our group showed up late and the place was packed we were still seated immediately with the table preference we had requested. Our waiter was very friendly and efficient, and the food was excellent. The salsa is hands-down my favorite! The noise level is very high, but with our small group of four we were able to get close enough to hear each other with moderately raised voices. Overall, great food and service!

    Had a 6:15 reservation on a Tuesday before going to a show at Majestic. Got in a little early and were seated promptly. But then weren't greeted for TEN minutes! Went to the bar to ask if the Happy Hour menu was only at bar. Was told that normally yes, but since they were about to have a private event in the bar, that it would be honored in the dining room. Server, Raul, finally showed up, and didn't apologize for the wait. We said we would like see the Happy Hour menu. He asked if we wanted to go ahead and order an appetizer, and my husband said we needed to see the menu first. They have an actual happy hour food menu. He came back with just the drink menu, slammed it down and walked away without a word. So, we left and won't be returning.

    Choose for a friend's birthday lunch celebration. Salsa trio so many unique & fresh flavors to enjoy. The concept of the taco trio is awesome since you get try sample different varieties-pork, beef, fish, veggie. You might say that fajitas taste the same at most places-not at Wild Salsa! Shrimp fajitas xtra flavorful. In addition to customary peppers/onions were roasted potato slices on bottom of the hot skillet. Yay. The tortillas must be hand made on location-fresh & not too large so you can have several different bites without overfilling. The tiny sopapillas with tiny squirt bottles of caramel, honey & chocolate-make you want to come back for more!Small popsicles upon departing. Beautiful artistic interior. Excellent service. Top Notch!

    Ate here for a our second wedding anniversary. I had a taco plate. They seemed sort of street style; very good. The drinks were decent. They let us sit on the patio even though they hadn't opened seating there yet (I don't know that they read our request for this when we made the reservation). Our waiter was friendly and attentive with out being annoying. He seemed to just magically appear when we needed him. Our food came out really fast and overall it was a great experience. Will definitely be back.

    ... Have reservations, walk in and introduce our party to the seating hostess, we receive a glare, she grabs menu's and starts walking, we assume we are to follow and after sitting at a table where she left the menus we all looked at each other in shock!!, no hello, no follow me please, no enjoy your meal, nothing but a glare... The waitress and food were fine but to over come her attitude was a big hurdle.

    Went to this place based on some good reviews I found online. I was excited to try a drink, a classic sangria, since this was supposed to be one of the better Mexican restaurants in the area. It was not good at all. Probably one of the worst I've ever had. Ordered the pineapple salsa, which was just alright. Meals were good: I got the mushroom tacos and my husband got the shrimp fajitas. It was a decent experience, but given the many great restaurants in downtown I don't know that I would go back.

    We went for Cinco De Mayo. The food was great, service was horrible. Our reservation was at 7 and the restaurant did not sit us until after 7:30. We even got to the restaurant early, but I understand since it was Cinco de Mayo. I would give the restaurant another shot, but was not over impressed.

    This was my 2nd visit to the Wild Salsa and after the first visit, I had absolutely NO intention on returning due to the service that was given. I thought about it and I really wanted to like this place because I live across the street and would love to have a place to frequent. I decided to take my father there for dinner on his birthday. To my surprise, the good, drinks AND service were fantastic. I will definitely become a repeat customer!

    Looking for a restaurant near the Winspear, the name did it for me...Wild Salsa...it definitely lived up to its name! Hip vibe, great corner location for indoor/outdoor joy (you can even watch the chefs from an outside window loving what they do!), the entire work-staff obviously love their job/enjoy the food, food as delish as server described. Made for a fabulous night in the city, right in the heart of it all!

    Try the tequila flights. They set Wild Salsa apart from the rest. We were a group of four and shared two tequila flights. It was a fun experience for a group setting. We're close co-workers therefore it was also an interesting way to get to know each other and have the conversational topic of the tequila flights to help during lulls in conversation.

    On our daughter's recommendation we went to this restaurant while visiting Dallas. It was a beautiful evening and we sat by the windows that were open to the city. The overall atmosphere was excellent, as was the food and service. I think the prices were reasonable for the amount and quality of food. Don't expect the usual Tex-Mex, this is much more authentic Mexican food. Overall a great night out with family.

    I was completely disappointed with our visit to Wild Salsa Saturday night. We had reservations for 8 at 8pm and were put in the BAR area which would have been fine if we were not celebrating multiple Birthdays with friends. There were plenty of OPEN tables when we arrived and we stuck with a large table in the bar area like it was a happy hour party? I even sent a request via the Open Table Reservation system and NEVER heard back from anyone. The service was beyond SLOW and it was not our waitress's fault. The bartender's had to come help her with drink orders as she slammed. The is a MANAGEMENT issue, not a wait staff issue. We never had anyone from management come by to see if everything was OK or if we needed anything.

    Delicious food that has a little different and special flair but still priced reasonably. Fun cocktail menu with interesting margarita varieties . The La Boracha cucumber and vodka cocktail is amazing. We came here before going to the Majestic and it was easy to park at the Majestic, walk to dinner, and walk back to the theater - only a quarter mile away! Great find!

    I've heard great things about this place from a few close friends. So we decided to give it a try . First we walked in there was no hostess and had to wait for someone to sit us. We ordered a different range of drinks and they were awesome.. Took a while to get there but were worth the wait. The selection of the salsa's were just as amazing.. So we had asked our waiter to bring out more.. However the salsa's didnt get there til our food had arrived so it was a waste. However the food was amazing a little cd but great! Would I go back, yes for sure..but wouldn't want the same server.

    I had visited this restaurant for a quick happy hour cocktail a few months ago. I was impressed with the place and decided to come back for their Saturday Brunch. The place wasn't as busy I was expecting for a 12:30pm brunch. After talking with the server I found that the restaurant gets a "late crowd" and was told it was completely booked from 4 p.m. until closing. The food was excellent. We asked our server to suggest the more authentic Mexican dishes instead of the TexMex offerings. We chose the hosemade Tamale stuffed with carnitas (pork). It was awesome and huge! The size of a large burrito and it was wrapped in a banana leaf so it was also very moist.

  • Terrible Choice
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    I was excited to try a new restaurant downtown, but left very disappointed. The food was very overpriced and came in extremely small portions. You can expect a very small plate compared to the average Mexican restaurant. My chicken fajitas literally came with 5 small slivers of chicken. This was hardly enough to make two small fajita tacos for a price of $17. I should also mention the waiter forgot to even bring the tortillas until I reminded him twice. My friend couldn't order her quesadilla without onion, which tells me they are all pre-made. Pathetic service for a restaurant posing as fine Mexican dining. Overall this restaurant was an extreme disappointment and I hope to find much better options next time in downtown Dallas dining.

    Ladies night out- had a great round table for our party of 6. Drinks excellent- food quite good, our only negative was when it was time for the check our waiter was around but just would not make eye contact for us to ask and he never came to see if we needed anything else. 20 min later we asked the busboy to get the check. Overall great spot. Oh I might add it was a Friday so valet was a bit slow., not ideal for parking, but definitely would go back.
