The atmosphere felt authentic and the food was very good. The price was also very reasonable, especially for the portion size, and they have a very good white queso, which I always enjoy having at Mexican restaurants. I would eat at 1900 again and highly recommend it.

The food’s good. The Salmon Tamarind was perfect - cooked all the way through & with light sauce for flavor. However, dinner started a bit rocky when we ordered the Tableside Guacamole app: We thought it would be made at the table. She started preparing it at the bar & added salt. When she brought it to us, we told her that we can’t eat salt & she seemed peeved. She took it back to the bar area & started preparing another one by adding lime & then bringing it to us. We order Tablesiide Guac partly for the fun of watching it be made & partly to influence the ingredients. Our previous visits have been great. We think (hope) this weird service issue was an anomaly

First time visiting after receiving recommendation from a friend. Would return again now that I know where to park. The parking lot next to restaurant was less than expected but was at least close. Music played in restaurant wasn’t coinciding with the ambience- yet was over looked once seated. Food/drinks were good. A little pricey overall for the menu items.

We arrived early in the evening for pre-concert food and margaritas, and the dining room was about a quarter full. Despite this, it still took about 10 minutes to get a round of drinks after ordering them. The food was pretty good, though I do wish they would return to the way they used to make queso. It is pretty generic now. Service got worse and worse as the restaurant filled up more, though it really looked like they had an adequate number of servers. I dont know if they are really bad at time management or what, but at one point both bartenders were helping on the floor. After flagging down the server and requesting a last round of drinks and our check, making it clear we were trying to catch the next streetcar, we still sat and sat. Got drinks but no checks, even though we had credit cards out and ready to go. Missed the streetcar. To make matters worse, and what aggravated me the most, the drinks were weak. The house Cadillac margs were $3 more for a grand marnier float added, and there was no discernible liquor added (it is red-orange and the drink was just a cloudy yellow). I also ordered a guava margarita and the glass was packed so full of ice the drink was literally five sips. Yes, I counted. Unacceptable.

Went with girlfriends for Margarita Day... no specials for Margarita Day. Took fire for server to come to table. Friday night and only one bartender so service was very slow. Food was good but could tell was not served as soon as was ready because temperature of food wasn’t very hot. Probably won’t be back.

This was my third visit over approx the past two years. Each time I've been under-wowed by everything. The service was mediocre at best, and the food decent (better than last time, but nothing noteworthy). The cocktails literally tasted like they had zero alcohol in them (and I'm not one to prefer an overly strong drink). We only stopped in again as it was close by, but wish we had picked another restaurant along Elizabeth. Very doubtful I'll return.

This was my second and final time at 1900 Mexican Grill. Even though the restaurant was only 1/2 full tThe service was spotty and everyone in our party was disappointed in their food. My mole enchiladas weren't prepared properly, just some chicken thrown in a tortilla and folded in half (not even wrapped correctly) with an absurd amount of sauce dumped on top. Every plate looked like the food had just been tossed together with zero attention. Waters weren't refilled and the second appetizer we ordered never came, despite reminding our server after 15 minutes. Very disappointing, particularly because we had brought friends from out of town. Will not be returning.

We went out for dinner and were surprised to see all the 4 top tables in the restaurant turned into 3 long tables full of children. We didn’t know there was a cheerleading competition in town that weekend. Clearly, they were overbooked and under staffed. Our waitress rushed us through with our ordering and was very inattentive after that. They we’re so busy with the super large parties that we were an after thought. The noise in the restaurant was deafening and we had to try to grab our waitress to get any help, even to pay our bill. I understand restaurants can’t turn down big parties but please have the correct staffing in place. I shouldn’t have to beg a waitress to let us pay our bill.

The food and ambiance were great. The service however, TERRIBLE!! We made a reservation ahead of time, arrived and our table wasn't set yet. Then, the waiter we got was extremely lazy and seemed annoyed to have to take everyone's order. He would take 3 people's order and walk away from the table... We had to keep flagging him down and yelling out for him because he would walk right past us and deliberately ignore us. It was not a busy night, there were only a couple of other tables and all of small groups (couples). We were the only large group and had let them know days in advance when the reservation was made, so the waiter's behavior/attitude was completely unacceptable. Unfortunate, because the food was great!!

The service started out good but as people started arriving it got worse and worse....coffee never came and I finally chased down the server to get the check. Quacgamolue was good but the tacos were pretty bad...watery chicken and not much condiments. Ambience was pleasant and its proximity to Legion Memorial Stadium makes it a good pre-event choice IF you have plenty of time.

Luchador as a logo was all we needed to go in, inside we found a nice restaurant -- very friendly and helpful staff. Our waitress (Orange was her name) made good recommendations and we ate well. We liked it so much that we stopped in for a drink just before closing, since the Matthew Sweet concert was surprisingly brief. If you are in the area, 1900 is worth checking out.

The food was okay and not expensive. We had theatre tickets, I told the server and asked if she could help to ensure we got out quickly. She was slow. Did not come around to ask if everything was okay. And I don't like the idea that an 18% tip is mandatory. Tippping is supposed to be a voluntary gesture, depending on the service. We were rushed to leave, so I did not have time. Had I not been rushed, I would have marked out the 18% tip and left 10% as a way of indicating to the server our table was not happy. We did make it to the theatre on time. BARELY.

Everything was really, really good and we had a great time!!

Only down side was the rest room. Previous Rest Room (RR) patron left an open take out box with some tortilla chips in it on the floor next to the toilet. When staff was notified, RR wasn't cleaned up quickly. I find this embarrassing for the restaurant and gross for the patrons.

Our dinner went from bad to worse as time went on. Our food was bad, we were left with empty glasses--nothing to drink the entire meal.. and then 45 minutes to get out the check. When we finally got the servers attention to ask why we hadn't received it he said it was a tough night.. I've been to 1900 on multiple occasions but will not be returning to this location.

We were looking forward to a nice dinner before a show at the Spectrum Center. Ordered a mixed jalapeño margarita which was good but small at $10. I had the vegetarian burrito which was basically sautéed onions and peppers and some retried beans. Was bland and had really no taste. The wife had the chicken fajitas and had the exact same thing in my burrito with exception of the chicken. My plate had the burrito and a spoonful of what appeared to be coleslaw which I took one taste of and never went back to. No rice or beans, etc... very sad presentation . I left food on the plate which was rare and left hungry. Just was not good. Others at our table had same thoughts on the food. For the price and quality, would certainly go elsewhere for dinner.

I booked this reservation at least two weeks out and brought a party of 12 ladies to 1900 Mexican.... because I was in charge of a large group I called the restaurant probably no less than three or four times just to double check and confirm and said that we needed to be out by 6:30 as we had a play to attend that evening..... we walked in at about 5 till 5 our reservation was at 5 p.m. and they did not even have our table setup..... this place isn't bad for casual dining but don't go there with any expectations at all and you might get what you expect which is nothing...

The entire experience was awful. The waiter was slow (we had to find a manager so we could finally place our order after 30 min) and had to be reminded at least twice of items we asked for. Then he didn't bring them anyway. The food was the worst Mexican we've ever had. Completely flavorless / tasteless and we tried all of the beef / chicken options. Do not waste your time.
