La Torre Mexican Grill - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
I truly enjoy Mexican food , but was rather disappointed yesterday. The salsa seemed weak and almost watered down. I've had fish tacos in a lot of restaurants but theirs are simply a grilled filet of fish in a soft tortilla. Slaw and pico de gallo were served on the side. Perhaps this is a regional food style, but I've not seen it before. My wife is a traveled Spanish teacher and voted the best part of her meal "the Pacifico". I voted for the guacamole. Sorry, but won't be back.
I've been going to La Torre for about two decades. Bloomington is known for its international and ethnic restaurants. La Torre is by far my favorite Hispanic place to eat. The owner and his wife are frequently there and are very friendly. I've watched their children and now, grandchildren grow up there. There is a busy and friendly outside patio during good weather. We go there for special occasions. When my wife has her monthly girls card party, I either eat there or take home my favorite dish--Tricolor Enchiladas--for a great meal alone.
I was late to try for a reservation for my son's graduation and everything was booked solid. La Torre was available, so I thought we might as well give it a try. The food was very good - a step or two up from the typical Mexican restaurant fare and the staff was very friendly and attentive. My son said it was shame that in four years in Bloomington he had never been here and hadn't even heard of it. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for Mexican.
My family went to La Torre on Friday of IU's graduation weekend. We had a reservation and were seated right away. The food was good but the service was incredibly slow. They kept apologizing and saying that "everyone came in at once". We had to wait a long time to order, had no refills on our water or chips/salsa, and barely saw our waiter. I understand that a restaurant can fill up quickly, but it was graduation weekend and I only saw one server... they should have been better prepared for a dinner slam on a busy weekend.
I would still go back to this restaurant on a week night. The staff was friendly and food was good.
If you want nasty Mexican food that took 45 minutes to get and 30 minutes to even get our drinks, then go here. Our waiter Stephan was terrible and other tables with other waitresses that got there after us somehow got our food before us. When asked for plates for our appetizers he said do you want to order or do you want your plates? Really? Just don't there!
I ordered the tamale, but ended up getting a taco and two quessadillas. The menu also spoke of guacamole being on the plate and there was none that I could see. It was Cinco de Mayo and perhaps they ran out of food or were too busy. The fresco margarita was one of the best I have had in a long time. My wife was very pleased with her order and the salsa is great.
I was disappoined with our visit. I knew we were in trouble at the start when the salsa was watery and not distinctive in any way. The meal continued along this path with all three dinners expressing similar thoughts: fair but nothing special. For a Mexican restaurant, it was remarkably inauthentic.
