This place is usually our go to for a fancy Mexican restaurant but this time we think they changed management or something went wrong because service was so slow. It took forever for us to get a waitress and get our drinks. The lights flickered and we had to wait for the computers to get back on so we had to wait for like 15 minutes for our check. It was a disaster.
Excellent, great service , excellent service staff
My girlfriend and I decided to make a last minute Valentines Dinner reservation. So we decided on this restaurant.
However, into my queso dip I came across a rusted old piece of Coupling (Bolt) in the dip. The General Manager came by and apologized profusely and told me it came from one of their kitchen appliances.
Anyhow, I wasn't mad just shocked. Nevertheless, the Manager said the food and drinks were all taken care off, which was the least they could do. Even though I did request that it was okay. It happens, and I would be more than happy to pay half. Of course he declined. So instead, we gave the waiter a generous tip.
Although, the food quality was rather good. I still had that unpleasant rust taste in my mouth, for a few hours, that made my overall experience not so good.
Needless to say, after my incident. I'm more than confident that Management will do a thorough quality check on their kitchen equipment to prevent this from happening to anyone else.
Will I go there again?. I don't know. I'm in two minds if I will or will not go again. Stay tuned!
We have eaten here several times, and have always enjoyed it. My husband had salmon, I had red fish, and our son had the paella. We all enjoyed our food. My only complaint is that the margarita was not the best. It was somewhat bland.
When the weather is great, service on the patio is a must! Enjoying the weather, food, and drinks...Las Alamedas takes care of it all!
Nice atmosphere to have lunch with my friends.
All of us have Ceylon rice. We have never seen green rice before. Sorry to say none of us liked it so we left it on our plates. I did ask the waiter now it was made. Prefer white rice or friend rice.
Great place to find a NJ bagel with cream cheese and lox in a Spanish restaurant in Katy, TX!
Will come back to try the bananas foster breakfast item.
Waiter was wonderful and the place is lovely---thought they only had Mexican food--was glad to see some good alternates on the menu.
Always good...never a disappointment ... courteous and attentive service..
Beautiful restaurant with great architecture, ideal for romantic and special occasion/anniversary dining. Wife and I loved the ambiance and the overall mood of the venue which was well complimented by some very delicious food. Highly recommended!
Nice evening for patio dining!
We celebrated our anniversary and the table and the food was excellent and a very special thanks to our host whose name was Flavio for an outstanding job at making us feel comfortable and for excellent conversation and taking care of us in every way possible thus earning a 30% tip.
He is the best waiter That me and my wife have ever had and he deserves a lot of praise for being so polite and doing what every business hopes there employees do...... Thank you and Thank Flavio for a job well done and we intend on spreading the news and returning often.
I made the reservation and we I arrived they said me that the only table available was close to the kitchen door; how if I did the reservation? when they saw that I was disappointment, they offered a good table. The place is nice, the food is good but the services is very poor. We asked for the drinks first but first arrived the food that the drinks... no good experience for us.
Met a girlfriend. Enjoyed our food and cocktails. Good service. Sat in bar area.
The food is great as always. The wait staff, Philip, is an excellent server.
Ambiance is great. Sat at a round table so it was great to see everyone.
Delicious Chicken Sarape. Chicken was thin as paper
Las Alamedas has become one of our favorite restaurants, essentially because they have authentic Mexican dishes, but they also do enough of other things to make it friendly for folks who are not into that, and then they also do everything else mostly right (drinks, service, etc.). The menu changes from time to time, which is a very good thing, except that they no longer offer the Baby Back Ribs: I loved how they were prepared -- better than most "BBQ" restaurants and certainly way better than Outback at its best (whose own quality has gone way down). But other good dishes have taken their place. Between the two of us and various friends we have met there, I've either seen or tasted 80% of all menu items. Only one was not impressive, but the person who ordered it thought it was delightful. So, YMMV, but it's more likely that you'll love this place than hate it. Note that this is NOT a Tex-Mex restaurant; if that's what you're looking for, look elsewhere. They still offer a couple of entrees with (Red) Snapper, and both are absolutely delicious (and as good as at any high end restaurant in Mexico, or New Orleans, LA). I hope they never disappear from the menu, but their fish entrees do come and go. We've tried the special items not on the regular menu on occasion when they sounded good, and were never disappointed. The only problem with this restaurant is my bad habit of ordering the same thing time after time because I know how good it will be. But then there's something to say for consistency.
My wife and I enjoy Fajitas and Margaritas on the patio at Las Alamedas almost year-round (since the patio is covered and somewhat climate controlled). When we are trying to decide where to go for lunch or dinner, usually the conversation ends by one of us saying, "Well, we can always go to Las Alamedas". It's also great for "people watching" while dining on the patio.
I miss the old building, that is hard to replicate, the food was good but I must say that as a person who's lived in Spain, the paella fell short of my expectations.
The empanadas were great and the margaritas were exceptional
Tables crowded in the dining room. Very loud. Slow service. Underwhelming food.
