The service was pretty slow that night. Not sure why it didn't seem to be swamped.
Had some great oysters, the margarita by the liter was good too. The server was on point and took care of us really well.
Come from Housto to eat the cabrito. I brought 3 first time guests. Oysters were nasty. We order platter of cabrito, it came on side plate, no crisp and on same plate as dried out cabrito. First horrific experience. We've been coming happily for years, until now.
Had a great meal
The food and drinks were great and our dessert tasted as good as it looks. A little pricier thank you average Tex mex but that is expected for the downtown area. They validate your parking for one hour as well if you park in their lot directly behind the building.
We arrived 30 minutes prior to our reservation. The staff was very friendly and greeted us enthusiastically. We were escorted to our table immediately. The service was excellent and the food was prepared wonderfully. Thank you.
We told them I was meeting a friend I hadn’t seen in 46 years and they seated us next to the bar and the mariachi band. It took 3 of us asking ( because nobody could hear anything) for them to move us outside. Then we could hear each other and catch up. I had the poblano enchiladas and enjoyed them very much. The frozen margaritas were weak and blah. Waitstaff attentive
Meet up with several of my Army Brothers as a mid point from all over Texas here at this restaurant for dinner and a few beers. Beer was great, food was great, service was a little slow or shall I say a little forgetful at times about our drinks. But overall this place was a great place to met up and handout at for the evening
Quality food and service. Never disappoints.
La Margarita is a good restaurant in the middle of Market Square in San Antonio which has a lot of shopping, authentic Mexican shops and small artisan shops. A good place to spend the afternoon and get something to eat.
Food was good , atmosphere good, a little loud. Loved the on-line reservation!
The lunch menu is very limited and my shrimp was not fully deveined. Very kid-friendly but otherwise mediocre experience. Recommend for dinner, not lunch.
We have frequented La Margarita on Christmas Day over the last 4 years+ and always enjoyed the atmosphere and the food.
This year they changed the menu to a very narrow selection. The oysters in the ceviche were not good. The chicken in the sour cream chicken enchiladas tasted like out of a can.
Will say the cocktails and the chips and salsa were good and the server was nice.
The service was good. The food didn't taste fresh. It wasn't warm. The tortillas and sweet tea were excellent.
Fantastic food, excellent service.
This as our first visit and it was a lot of fun. Food was good but not fantastic. Service was spot on. Everyone was friendly and prompt. I enjoyed the ambience with the Mariachi band and color decor. Overall a very fun place to eat. It’s a bit pricy for Mexican food but it’s to be expected at these locations.
Fun location and setting, but the food was average and the service was absolutely awful.
Had a great dinner accept for the LOUD OBNOXIOUS Christmas Party next to us that evening 😳🙄
Excellent, we come here often, we watched the Dallas Cowboys game while we enjoyed our meal. Our waiter was tops. Food hot and delicious
This restaurant has loads of inside and outside dining, but I highly recommend reservations. We had reservations on a Saturday night, and at 6:45, others were told that the wait was 90 minutes. The location is lively and so is the restaurant. The Don Margarita is outstanding. I had fish tacos and they were the best I've ever eaten. Everyone in our group loved their meal.
The food is good, not great. Service is prompt and attentive.
They will not seat you earlier than your reservation despite having numerous empty tables.
The place is EXTREMELY noisy; forget having a conversation.
This was my first time here. We had a group of 5. Earlier in the day, we ate the their sister restaurant-Mi Tierra. Very similar food, with the addition of Seafood. I actually had the fish platter and it was very good. The Nachas are amazing. They did have mariachis. You either like that or not. Me- Not.
All of our food was very, very good. And the speed in which we were served and the food was presented was spot on. Most Mexican food downtown, especially on the river walk is bad. This place wasnt that far and was simply amazing.
Graduation dinner! The staff, service & food were impeccable! My friends & family all arrived before me “The Graduate” due to delays leaving the parking lot of the Ceremony! Overall great service, environment and food! Outstanding waiter!
Alex (Waiter) was very attentive, set up a birthday song, and piece of cake.
Fantastic food! Loved the live music. We will return
Mediocre food. Weak beer. In attentive and brusque service. Not much else needs to be said.
Typical Mexican fare...nothing special. Food was OK - service was good.
We highly enjoyed our visit to La Margarita and its authentic and delicious food. Muy agradecidos,
Sergio and Shelley Bienstock
Great service from Alejandro, our waiter !!!!!!!!!!!
Food was good service was better just was a little noisy
Great Mexican food in a great locale!
I paid $42 for a plate of fajitas my 5 year old could have made. This is a tourist trap.
Great food and service as usual. We go every time we come into town
The beans were cold and they kind of messed up our order and everyone else was eating and one person had to wait about 10 minutes and we were almost done
Had a great meal, I love oysters so I thought I would try them Mexican style. Broiled and covered in a cheese and sauce. I didn't hate them but the raw oysters were better. The food is authentic Mexican or trex mex if you prefer. The street had great energy so I recommend sitting outside. A little ways from the river walk but a limebike
It was very busy with large parties, but our waiter was still attentive. We were visiting for my hubby's birthday which we indicated on the copen table app, but they didn't acknowledge it. By the end of dinner we were ready to go home and we were full so we didn't mention his birthday.
Touristy spot but fun. Food was as expected. Service was friendly
