I like Cyclone Anaya regardless of location. CityCentre is a really nice place. If it gets any lower marks, it's the parking.

We held a sweet 16 birthday party for our daughter and six friends on a Sunday evening at 5:30pm. The girls had a good time at Cyclone Anaya's. The food and service was very good. We will go back again.

The only issue was booking a second table for my wife and I. OpenTable doesn't allow booking a second room at the same time, so I had to call the restaurant. The host said they don't book tables on the weekend. I had to pled to book the second table so my wife and I could be seated at the same time as the girls. The host did good and booked a table, so all turned out well.

We were celebrating my daughter’s birthday and the service was atrocious! We were extremely disappointed! It started with receiving the wrong drink and then the drinks all took a long time to come. Then we had our appetizers for quite a while before we had even asked about our dinner order. After the meal was over we sat waiting for 40 minutes before the waiter came out with the bill, without asking if we wanted anything else, or dessert or anything! So I voiced my disappointment to both the waiter (who just made excuses) and to the manager. Then when I stated that we were celebrating a birthday they took another 15 minutes to bring cake and sing happy birthday! When a customer has a complaint they do not want to hear excuses...a simple apology will suffice! I won’t be going back any time soon, as this was my second poor service that we have had there recently! It’s a shame because the food is good!

I am an original customer and the food just tasted different. The beef fajitas were way too salty. The parking at City Center is awful and worse with all the construction which I know will get better.

It was my first time at this restaurant even though I have lived in Houston most of my life. I enjoyed it. I loved that they could make a mango margarita and the food was really good. Our server was just ok. I wish she was more attentive.

unfortunately, I was unimpressed. The waiter did his part, with the tools he was given. I have no complaints about him.
My disappointment was with the food, not sure what exactly to say, except nothing extraordinary for the price. The big disappointment was one of the leading beers sold, was SOLD OUT.

It was just okay. Probably won't visit again.

Cyclone Anaya's is one of my favorite places to dine at, but the waitress we had serving us was horrible. We were seated for atleast 20 minutes before she came to our table, then we she finally came over,it took another 30 minutes for her to bring our drinks.

The environment is fun and lively. Our waiter was not that great. We found a screw in one of our water glasses- & he acted so nonchalant. It would have been nice of him to offer the guest a free drink or dessert. He didn't even refill the glass when/after we brought it to his attention. In fact, he did not check on us often enough to refill our glasses the entire time we were there. The food was good, but feel like our experience was more about the environment/ambiance.

What a waste of time and money. Parking is a pain. Service was excruciatingly slow. Salmon was sickeningly sweet. Key lime pie had absolutely no lime flavor to it at all. There are too many really good Mexican restaurants in Houston for me to ever waste another evening here.

I specifically noted on my reservation that my date would need a Gluten Free Menu, and when we showed up, they did NOT question us, or my date, made us feel completely normal. I noticed that there were two separate menus together waiting away from the others, and the hostess grabbed those and led us to our table. My date sat first and the hostess placed the GF menu in front of her, and I sat as well and got the regular menu, and we thanked the hostess and she left. I could tell that my date felt extremely special for not feeling called out or anything like that but simply being treated as a normal person with nothing wrong with her.. it was a small gesture, but very sweet indeed.

The restaurant sat us away from the crowd and went above and beyond for us that night.. I have to say.. I will never for get this place, or that night..

🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰🥰 Love this place! Thank you so very much!

The food speaks for itself. I don’t need to comment on that.. read the other comments.. it’s 5🌟 in my opinion.

We reserved a table for 16 + 4 high chairs for a large group and the day of the dinner some of our party cancelled so I called the restaurant and informed them we only needed a table for 12 chairs + 3 high chairs. When we arrived, the table was ready but there were only 12 chairs and no room at all to add high chairs. It was a very tight squeeze which made the seating uncomfortable. Also the noise level of the restaurant is very loud so conversations were limited to those closest to you. Food and service were very good though! Not sure if I would go there again for a group larger than 6 because of the noise level. I would also make it very clear that highchairs take up the same space as a chair.
