Take a big group to La Condesa for West Coast vibes and great margaritas.
Nice atmosphere, in Austin's 2nd Street District, a new age Mexican food with a local bent. Small plate style which makes it easy to share. Had 4 small plates for two of us - about right. House margaritas were quite tasty, beer was very cold. A little on the expensive side. Inside decor is very nice.
We had an appetizer that was good. But, we had finished our appetizer and still had not had our order taken for entrees. This was by far the slowest service that I’ve ever experienced at a restaurant. By the way, I’m 56 years old, so I’ve been to a few restaurants. Would not recommend this restaurant, at all!
Small portions, bad service, overall not a good value. Felt nickel and dimed ($4 dlls for a salsa). If I buy 12 dlls tacos dont feel like I should also pay for salsa. Will not come back and will definitely not recommend.
A wonderful experience start to finish. Beautiful space, friendly staff, and delicious food and drinks. We appreciated drink recommendations and the time our waitress took to explain the menu and food options. We loved our small plate selections, guacamole, and the vegana salad. I had noted in my reservation that it was my birthday and they even went out of their way to help me celebrate. This place seemed popular and accommodating for larger groups and but also felt intimate and fun for couples like us. Thank you for the memorable birthday dinner!
I stopped by here based on the reviews and the location. I had the steak from the grill. Very delicious. Was slightly small and probably needed a side or two, but overall, I would still order again given the chance.
Loved that they don’t serve drinks with straws!
The portions are quite small, especially for the price. The service was great. It was next door to Moody Theater, so it was convenient.
Everything was delicious!
Impeccable service, innovative menu options. Try the watermelon elderflower martini for a refreshing unique cocktail!
I dined with a couple friends and we all enjoyed our food and drink. The guacamole sampler was excellent and I loved my fish entree. They even brought us a new complementary summer squash appetizer to try, which was delicious.
Delicious food and fantastic server. We did shared plates as recommended by our server and it was the perfect way to enjoy several different things.
Very small plates and drinks for a very high price. Was a good experience though. Just not sure I’d go back. The food just quite wasn’t good enough to justify the price in my opinion.
I’ve been dying to come here for a while and my first visit didn’t disappoint. We gave our waiter, Jamie, cart blanche on our order and let him choose all of our food and he didn’t disappoint!! Very dish he brought was more delicious than the last. The assistant GM, Javad, also took the time to come by our table and make sure our experience was top notch. Can’t wait to come back!!!
We had fun and it was yummy but we forgot how small the plates are.
Delicious food, excellent service and very nice Mexico City style Mexican restaurant. More of a fine dining experience than what one normally thinks of when considering the typical Mexican or Tex-Mex. this is not the norm but rather the exception due to it exceptional fare.
Great food, service and ambiance!
We had a great time
Food was very good especially the tuna ceviche
Happy hour was really good as well
The food was good but the service was very poor
Loved La Condesa! My husband and I arrived during happy hour, and were pleasantly surprised that all cocktails and many apps were part of the special. More importantly though, the food was delicious.
Dined here with friends after a movie at the Violet Crown. Certainly convenient as very close. Food was interesting and good, but a tad pricey. Our friend enjoyed the view of passers by on 2nd St. Pleasant enough, but we weren't wowed.
Great ambience and fabulous waitress. Food is unique and very good. Small plates but very filling.
Second visit. Excellent menu. Food is incredible. We highly recommend the guacamole tasting and the Hagar steak. An amazing surprise was the roasted sweet potatoe. Wow. Just wow.
Great setting for people watching! The food was fabulous.
We had an amazing dinner at La Condesa to celebrate our 23rd anniversary. The carrot starter with various kinds of carrots was our favorite! So nice the chef also gifted us with a complimentary starter! Amazing restaurant-great service-an Austin favorite for us!
Menu changed and food was only ok. Pork belly dish was not good and I’m a huge PB fan
Great spot for a casual but nice dinner/lunch. We ordered 3 types of ceviche and all were very good. A mix of guacamole options, as well as elote asado and queso fundido.
Deserts were really great as well.
I would recommend it for sure
Everything was great. Was not expecting brunch menu on a Saturday at 1pm
Always enjoy bringing my out of town friends and colleagues to La Condesa! Fun way to introduce folks to Austin! Always great food and service!
Excellent food and terrific, friendly staff. Seating w/o a problem ... wait staff offered very helpful suggestions. When food was delivered, wait staff gave a succinct description of ingredients, preparation, etc. Not inexpensive, but good value for quality food, ingredients, preparation, etc.
Fantastic food and service - and some of the best authentic and fusion Mexican cuisine.
The food is always great! The service is very inconsistent.
Excellent service. Do not skip dessert - it’s incredible!
Pleasant Sunday brunch, queso was great. Entrees were above average. Wait staff attentive.
I have enjoyed eating here for years. It's a nice place with previously great food.
It seems that the restaurant has really deteriorated.
The food was horrible and our waiter was pushy and rude.
This restaurant is not cheap so a terrible meal is not acceptable.
Excellent and unique menu; very helpful wait staff. We sat outside and enjoyed the Austin vibe while we equally enjoyed the food.
The wait staff seemed less than interested and the food was mediocre.
We've been to La Condesa before, but unfortunately this time it was disappointing.
Drinks are good, but a bit pricey. We ordered the guac, which was too 'smoothie processed' for our tastes. Expected a bit more chunky and fresh.
The poke was very good, but my spouse got a 'hot spot' with the habanero and was way too hot for her.
Then had the redfish and the hanger steak. Redfish was good, but also a bit on the too spicy side. Ordered the hanger steak med-rare, but had to sent it back since parts of it were cold-red. As for the steak, it was very disappointing. Hanger steak isn't a filet, but most if it was un-chewable with lots of gristle.
Should note that we're from Austin and very used to hot/spicy food.
Add $16 for parking, and a $150+ check just wasn't worth it. Too many other really good options for that price.
