Consuelo Mexican Bistro
our waitress was amazing ! The guac was the best we have ever had and the fajitas could feed a small family! Delicious.
Noise level is over the top loud. Not possible to have any kind of conversation without yelling.
We have been here a few times when we are are at Santana Row. The food and service are always good, as well as the drinks. It is a good place for a quick bite to eat before venturing on. The tableside-made guacamole is a real treat!
Good choice for Mexican fare and drinks. Helpful hostess and server. I'll be back again! :^)
I took my parents here to celebrate a birthday and we had the guacamole (delicious) and split the fajitas 3-way with enough to take home for another meal. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and our margarita’s too, however, they are on the small side and quite expensive. I will come back, however, it was too loud and we had trouble hearing each other.
We went with a reservation, 2 adults and 2 kids. They sat us at a middle table that had bench seating (not great with a 2 year old) and then brought us a highchair. We made it work until they slip the tables next to us and pushed a table agains the back of the highchair and they were making room for other tables. It’s was very rude and my son kept turning around trying to grab things off the other table. The food was aweful Mexican food, not just Americanized, it just didn’t taste good (FYI... I am Mexican). We had gone about a year ago but we will not be going back again any time soon.
The food and the service were outstanding. We loved and will go back again.
Nice place, good Mexican food
"That's how it is" was not only the response to a questionable dish but the overall attitude of all staff. Many standing around while I needed service but every time the catch my eye they turn away. Overpriced, lazy staff, and bad attitudes all make for awful experience. I will not go back or recommend. I wish I read the other reviews before going. The food you ask? It was ok. Just ok. Not worth the money.
Has been one of our favorite restaurants over the years. Disappointed in the quality of the food this time. Carnitas were overcooked and tough, rice dry, fajitas a bit overcooked. Restaurant was only half full so no one waiting for table and our server promptly gave us our bill and had written the 'suggested' 20% tip amount on it and circle it for our party of 4. Even if we had considered 20% which I normally due in this expensive valley I thought it was presumptuous and rude.
The drinks are great and the service is excellent! I always get the guacamole. It’s made at the table and delicious! The food is great quality and very tasty.
The service and the food was excellent. I love the decor as well! My favorite is always the table-side guacamole. My carnitas were a tad dry, which was surprising since I've had it before, and it's been superb. Despite that, the combined flavors made it still tasty. My only complaint was that it was very loud. All told, I would highly recommend Consuelo.
Food was great the waitress seemed annoyed with everyone.
Food was tasty! Ambiance was terrible!
Staff kept throwing plates and silverware into the dishwashing area perhaps, but it was extremely loud! Brought it to their attention and kept on doing it. Could not have a peaceful conversation and ambiance..
Great location but obviously overpriced because it sits in Santana Row. Quality was slightly above average. Margarita was too pricey but nicely made.
We had a large family group for a special occasion. Despite calling the restaurant twice, before and after making the Open Table reservation, when we arrived they had lost the reservation. Our server worked hard at correcting the situation. They also hadn't explained that the patio, which we'd requested, was covered by plastic since there was construction going on in the street next to it. The food was good, as in the past, and our server did an excellent job.
It was the most unpleasant and unprofessional experience that I encountered at Consuelo’s. Staff was rude, seating was horrible, and some dishes were cold. I will no longer be a Consuelo’s paTron.
Planned on a bday celebration for 9 ladies!
The restaurant was CLOSED when we got there.
Closed by the health department!
No message, no text! WTF?
Great meal. Service after our plates were dropped was slow. Sat with empty glasses for way too long.
It was our first time there. Overall it was a good experience. The server was attentive and the food was very good.
I had the Enchilada Suiza and my husband ordered the Chili Verde.
The Margarita's were awesome as well. Wish they were a bit larger.....
It was definitely very lively but we enjoyed the energy although it was hard to hear each other at times.
We will plan to go back for Sunday brunch as I heard that is very good as well.
Good food, fun to sit outside in the sun, friendly servers. Nice experience all ro7nd!
Food was nice. But the service was extremely SLOWWWW
We didn’t even get to be seated. They were not taking in ppl
This used to be a favorite for us. We went this time and half way through dinner the power went out. Nothing the restaurant can do. And it didn’t bother us either. When we then left, still in the dark, we forgot a pair of sunglasses. Returned to get them, and they were gone. The way we were treated by personnel was very rude and uncooperative. Big disappointment.
This not your standard Tex-Mex. There are several common favorites that you cannot get here such a menudo on weekends. Our waiter was candid about this and talked about offerings in neighborhood Mexican restaurants. The food is more like central Mexico and menu is more limited to dishes that are very well prepared. The fresh tortillas are great.
The service was very slow especially for a Tuesday night. Food quality and flavor seems to have gone down. Everything was bland and needed salt!
After waiting for 25 minutes to order and having to go to the bar and get my first round of drinks. I would say the food was excellent but the service was way slow
Reunion with friends!
Love everything about this restaurant. Our server was Dora just wonderful. We go there every week, and will keep going.
Three friends birthday
The wait staff and hostess were all friendly and nice. After being seated I went to lean on the table and it was really sticky :( My food was luke warm and my sons' Chili Relleno was burt! Don't think we will go back any time soon :(
Great spot for margarita and food before a nice walk to movie at Santana Row.
Chile verde and sopes were delicious. Margaritas were also very good . Friendly service will come back again.
Great place to go with Family and friends. Good food and Margaritas
I love this place. My wife and come here nearly every week before we head off to the movies.
A great family restaurant. You can always rely on good food, reasonable prices and a friendly environment. I have been there several times with family and friends, to celebrate birthdays or simply catch up with friends over drinks and appetizers. The guacamole is fantastic!
Authentic Mexican food in a beautiful location.. Fast and courteous service. Table side guacamole was terrific!
Fajitas were ok, not great. They don't include guacamole. Chicken was bland, not flavorful like typical fajitas. Recommend the ceviche. Skinny margarita and house margarita not good. Top shelf margarita was good.
We really enjoyed our evening as well as the food.. The service was very good too!
Great food and was not real busy. However, waitress was very nice but not attentive. We had to flag someone down for drinks that did not come, more chips and salsa and water.
