    I’m all for paying more for well sourced food but this way way overpriced. $18 for a margherita and $14 for 5 ounces of wine? Gives you a little indication. How about some broccoli for $24? The food was very good, though cervice had not much fish and was over salted. Pork tacos were beautiful, Camarones appetizer very nice as well as the grilled corn. Service was spotty. It friendly when we had someone. Many other places in Austin with great food well sourced ingredients without being completely ripped off.

    One of the most exciting meals in a long time - traditional Mexican foods with a modern, flavorful, farm-based twist. Extraordinarily friendly service, an incredible vibe, and a beautiful mural make this a not-to-miss option in Austin.

    An experience and not just a meal. The service was personal but not invasive and they even included a bonus plate to try. Amazing pork and shrimp. Presentation spot on. They deserve the James Beard award.

    1st visit since the pandemic. So disappointed that the homemade salsas were no longer offered and that the tostadas were thick, and chewy blue corn tortillas, not crispy at all. Elote presentation was not up to standard. Guacamole was so salty we couldn’t eat it. The tacos entomamtadas were gummy. We won’t return, lots better food in Austin now.

    Everything about my brunch was perfect except for the fact that the restaurant neglected to contact me prior to my reservation to let me know that they’d have a private event and I needed to be out of the restaurant within the hour. Quite disappointing given all they had to do was call me before my reservation and I would make the decision to keep it or not.

    Good overall. Though the $72 for a fatty carne asada was vastly overpriced and a poor value. Ceviche was good as always. But probably will warn others about the carne asada which was quite good years ago but just a major disappointment this time. The hospitality and service were wonderful.

    Went here to celebrate a bday on a Thursday night. The service was really fast, friendly staff, and the food was so good! We got the carnitas tacos, short rib quesadilla, and crudo (a special) to share. It was all really good! They even put a candle in the tres leches for dessert. We would definitely go back!

    I used to count La Condesa in my favorites but it’s changed so much to be unrecognizable. The menu has shrunk considerably and I found myself searching for something on the menu that appealed to me. $48 for chicken mole is kind of crazy as are $18 margaritas. Service was ok but we had to search for our waiter several times, once for an order that never arrived and then for forks. It is still a nice setting and had a great playlist. I would go back for appetizers before a show but not for a nice dinner out.

    The place is located in a great location and the atmosphere was quiet and inviting. The music selection was nice. I would recommend this place for a special occasion, but not for a regular outing. The food was good but not that great (especially for the price of each individual plate). I think the best thing on the menu that we ordered was the queso flameado and the torta of the month. The sopes were small and I personally would move them under "los snacks." The Huarache of Huitlacoche was good but it was a bit cold by the time that it reached the table.

    The food was outstanding but the plates were very very small for the price, and so were the drinks. The carnitas tacos comes with 3 but they’re the size of my palm. The drinks are small, like 8 oz. Everything tasted amazing but in my opinion slightly overpriced for the portions. Also our waiter took FOREVER to bring us the check, we were sitting there waiting forever and couldn’t even find him or see him for the longest. He never introduced himself and was always super quick to leave the table. I will say the tres leches is something you can’t miss out on.

    Best Mexican food I've ever had - everything was absolutely delicious. We had the queso to start with pulled pork topping. I had the pork shoulder for dinner and it was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. It was all meat! I am literally eating the leftovers for breakfast this morning as I type this. Everything was perfectly seasoned. My coworkers really enjoyed the margaritas. I'm not a fan of tequila, but they had an extensive tequila menu. It will definitely be top of the list when I'm in the area again.
