Overall the service and appetizer were good, and we ordered vegetarian enchiladas for the main course. The enchiladas were black in color with horribly bitter taste and were completely burnt out. Besides this, everything was great. I’d advise not to order any vegetarian main course.

The drinks were great but the food was mediocre. I had a party of 8 and no one liked their food enough to go back. The atmosphere was very nice. Its more of a Happy Hour place rather than a sit down dinner for a birthday. Also, I was calling to let them know I was running late however no one answered the phone. When I arrived it was not busy at all so I am not sure why no one answered the phone. Overall, I would go back for Happy Hour and the view.

The Cantina Rooftop staff were great. We arrived early so they suggested the bar area- it was comfortable but noisy inside and out. But we sat down on time and the food was good. They even sat us where a friend coming late could fit. I will go back.

I went for my birthday and although they claimed they don't do anything for birthdays, they ended up putting together something fun that involved sparklers, sombreros, and tequila. I had a great experience with my friends and would definitely go back!

Overall, we had a good time at Cantina. The food was good and so where the pitchers of margaritas! Our sever was pleasant and courteous.

The only thumbs down I'd have is that the reservation was for 4 persons, 3 of us arrived at the same time, but the host made us wait until the 4th person arrived. We could have been sitting in a better table (since the sun was burning!) and we could have been having a drink. The hostess didn't even offer us to sit at the bar (it was awkward just waiting there!).

The rooftop has a nice view in the daytime. And I can imagine its great in the evening too.

We celebrated a birthday and they did a fun sombreros and sparkling candle cake!

El staff es muy atento y el lugar muy acogedor, las vistas estupendas. Fue, para mi gusto, demasiado ruidoso, por suerte pudimos cambiar de mesa y cenar algo más tranquilos.
