Was so glad to get a last minute reservation for 6 people! Had a great first experience with drinks and snacks, which is why I chose to return for dinner with friends. Corn tortillas are homemade and delicious but the carnitas tacos were very salty but palatable. The conchinita pibil was delicious and hearty especially for the cold weather. The margarita de la condesa is always a favorite. The manki cocktail was soo spicy it was difficult to enjoy. Service lacked considering the automatic gratuity that was placed and the amount of money we spent.

The food was very flavorful. We enjoyed this experience so much and can't wait to go back. We had the barbacoa, broccoli tamal, squash with goat cheese, and ceviche. Very, very good. We will be back.

Drinks were very acidic (a lot of lime), tostadas were stale (hurt our teeth), and food was extremely salty.

The service was great, drinks were great, the food was okay for the price. The pork was a bit bland and the barbacoa was very very salty. Apps and sides were good.

The dishes were hit or miss.

$30-$45 per plate, but portions are shareable. The beef quesadillas are delicious, our server wasn't very friendly, like she had a rough day.

The service was very good, but the food was not exceptional. The Shrimp Ceviche saved the meal from being completely forgettable. There are definitely better meals to be had in town for the money spent.

Food and drinks were excellent but unfortunately I would not recommend based on the service. We were not forewarned that the kitchen would close at 9 pm and we had a 8 pm reservation. Therefore we were extremely rushed, bussers kept trying to take our food before we were finished and the waiter did not help us with describing dishes and/or portions. We were visiting Austin and not necessarily familiar with all the Mexican dishes so we needed help navigating the menu but our waiter was so rushed and unhelpful. Perhaps it's due to COVID and staffing issues, so I will give them the benefit of the doubt for that reason.

We had the perfect romantic evening for my husbands birthday. The Queso Flameado not only had an amazing cheese pull but tasted stunning. We went with the suggestions of our wonderful waitress and enjoyed every single dish put in front of us.

Can't wait to take my friends or out of towners back with me.

I’ve always enjoyed La Condesa however this time I’ve witnessed a few issues. The taste of the agua fresca wasn’t fresh, all the tortillas were really hard to chew, and the portion sizes were pretty snail with much larger price tag.

We came to Austin excited to experience some amazing food that reflected the vibe of the city. Instead we got overpriced, trying way too hard to be fancy big city Mexican food. We had to ask for and pay extra for tortillas for a pork dish that was meant to be eaten with tortillas. Makes no sense. Lots of staff walking around, yet so inattentive. They were clearly too busy chatting with one another to take care of the few guests that were there.

Hadn’t been to La Condesa in years. We miss the old menu! Portions were small, selection was limited.
Service was the best thing about the evening.
