    This was our first time at Padre. We went to celebrate Valentine’s Day. The atmosphere was pleasant, not to loud, our server went out the way to provide the best service ever. The food was amazing, I ordered something that was discontinued off the menu (shrimp and rice dish)but my server had the cooks make it for me anyway and it was to die for. Would definitely recommend and return. Looking forward to hanging out at the bar upstairs. Thank you

    I was excited about this place and made reservations for my girls birthday. We arrived and were greeted by the manager who said he had decided to shut down the restaurant. Reservation was at 6:30 pm. I told him I have a reservation he said well I cancelled all reservations. We drove 30 minutes to get there I never had a cancellation call text or email. He was pretty rude about it and just walked away. As we were leaving a group of about 20 was showing up and they asked if the restaurant closed I let them know what the manager told me and they were pretty upset and walked away.

    Overall experience was great. Great service. All the staff were extremely friendly. The margaritas were amazing, especially the pepino margarita! The carne asada taco was the only let down as we felt it wasn’t seasoned and did not compare to the carnitas and barbacoa. Highly recommend !

    We were there on taco Tuesday and ordered the margaritas and different tacos at $3/each. The server Paco was very nice and helpful. When I ordered the fried chicken taco he said it was his favorite and it was the best. The margs were delicious and homemade, just too small and too much ice, but for $8 I guess I shouldn’t complain, they were tasty. A new find for us and we’d definitely go back.

    Considering the fact that the place was less than half full the weight staff was horrible. And it wasn’t because we had eight people it was because they were not good service professionals. Our waitress was absent-minded, not outgoing and friendly, and kept forgetting things. They served appetizers that required little plates which came 15 minutes before we got a spoon to serve. One of the plates had a big blob of chili on the bottom of it. It was disgusting. Then, finally, when the check comes, she perks up and act excessively friendly because she’s trying to earn her tip with a Hail Mary. I’m the one that asked for the check, but she started to set it on the table next to somebody else and then I held up my hand and she gave it to me. So I hand the card and the bill. She comes back and forgets to give me a pin to sign it. She leaves, and I’m searching everywhere and can’t find my credit card. She never gave it back so we had to find somebody to go get her to bring my credit card back while we’re all using flashlights under the table looking for it. Seriously was just the worst service.

    I met with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. Service was good. Appetizers were good and main entrées were good as well. I just wish that the staff was more aware of the neighborhood they work in. I asked if they knew where the parking machine to pay was at, and they didn’t know. I feel that if you’re going to work at a place, you need to be familiar with the location and its surroundings, in case people who are out of town ask.

    The parking was the worst I have ever experienced. I almost left if it wasn't for my friends bday dinner being taken there and I haven't seen her in months. the food was basic. prices a little too much. My Peruvian dish I ordered the beef was really rough like it was old meat and a few of my members felt the same way as it was rough to chew on.

    Good food and diverse cocktails in a quiet outdoor setting made this a lovely date night. We had Pulpo and pork belly fries and drank two kinds of margaritas. We'll be back to try some more offerings. Happy hour pricing made it even better.

    Honestly, I don’t know how to feel about this place I might give it another shot but as of now not really looking forward to it . I arrived with my family told the lady I had a reservation and she looked at me confused like I didn’t have a reservation and then she double checked, and said I did we got sat down and handed waters. The waiter never came back to check on us after 20 min of sitting there . The menu kind of sucked. We were there around 2 PM and most of the dishes that looked good were not available until 3 PM everything else that was available, was just tacos, quesadillas, and burritos . . So that was kind of a downfall. We didn’t even order. We ended up getting up and leaving to head somewhere else. Based on the service itself, I wouldn’t recommend the place I can’t really judge the food since we didn’t even get any.

    I scheduled a table for 15 for a birthday maybe a week before the reservation. I tried calling a few times before the day of to confirm and even left messages where no one got back to me. I finally got a hold of someone the day before and they told me everything was okay. I showed up and had to wait awhile to be seated (though the restaurant was empty on a Sunday morning) because they had to wait until more of my party was present. There was a bunch of hurricane and tropical warnings, so people were a bit late. Not necessarily Padre’s problem, but it would have been nice to be sat while no one was there. I understand the reasoning, though. I did give them a birthday cake to hold in the back when I first arrived as well, hoping to get it later. Service was great. They were very helpful and checked on us enough. The main server guy was lovely. When it came time to leave, we all started filtering out and it was realized we still hadn’t gotten the cake. A friend asked for it back and the staff informed us they gave it to another table. Like what? There weren’t any other tables I saw sat, let alone a large party. They gave us $50 back which was nice, but the experience was bizarre. It felt like a weird lie, but whatever. Overall, the experience was fine/good, but the missing cake is unusual.

    Table behind us kept bumping into my seat and my mom’s they were walking around a lot. I went outside on the patio to take a picture with my mom for my birthday and the security told us we couldn’t be out there. Which is fine but he was rude about it, when you have a whole table of drunk people with roller blades on the floor, spilling check mix and bumping into our table. Seems like that had more to worry about then us taking a picture outside. After that I decided I probably won’t be back.

    My reservations read to dine inside and there was a birthday. Even though our reservations read 2:15, we were sat 20 minutes later and it wasn’t busy, nobody waiting but us. Instead of sitting us inside they sat us outside. Towards the end, the waiter said he didn’t know it was my birthday and to let him know next time! We spent over 200 dollars and one of our guest had tacos with BBQ sauce. Very disappointed in everyone’s food. Guac and salsa and drinks were good. Won’t return.

    Despite its enticing exterior, Padre falls short, particularly for special events or sizable groups. I planned an outdoor patio gathering weeks ahead for eight, to celebrate a friend's hard-earned PhD. The menu seemed diverse, fitting various budgets and palates. Regrettably, the service was a letdown. Upon arrival, the hostess clarified, "MORE than half of your party needs to be here." We understood, so we waited at the bar as the rest navigated the tough parking situation. But when half our group was there, she remained unyielding. This policy seems backward - wouldn't seating us lead to more orders and revenue? Perhaps they could consider valet service or parking partnerships? The ridiculous part was when five of us were there, she insisted on six. When we mentioned the others were parking, she casually replied, "They can park at Von's, it's whatever." Really? LAST KICKER-- once our entire party shows up, we are told there is NO OUTDOOR PATIO SEATING even after requesting and confirming this with staff on the phone and on OpenTable. Unacceptable. UNACCEPTABLE. Food-wise, it was a mixed bag. The charred octopus and yucca fries were tasty, and their Al Pastor taco version was decent. However, the cold sides and undercooked tortilla were disappointing. Despite the waiter's friendly disposition, he was often absent, leaving us without drinks for extended periods. With an automatic 20% gratuity, it made us question the motivation for quality service. In a nutshell, I'd recommend skipping Padre. If you're on the fence about this place, consider this review your sign to look elsewhere.

    As stated in previous reviews, front desk service is horrible, slow and nonexistent at times. Our waiter was no where to be found at times. Noise is really bad. Restaurant had loud music and the music from the upstairs bar area was also very loud as well so it all clashed. Management should really pay attention to these reviews. Restaurant has a lot of potential if management only cared to solve issues. As far as food and drinks, drinks were ok. Alcohol was overpoured. Food was just okay. Tacos were very greasy. Overall ok experience but would not go back or recommend to anyone I know.

    Food was good, but not fantastic. Drinks were very good (spicy cucumber (pepino) margarita was yummy). The restaurant is eclectic and vibrant with a lot of interesting spaces. We probably won't be back because of the food...nothing too exciting (we ordered the octopus and the Latin style poutine...fries smothered in brisket and sauce).

    The food was great, the pork belly tacos were my absolute favorite, but the drinks were exquisite. You can make any of their margaritas with mezcal and they did it with talent. My only issue was that the support staff was tunnel-visioned. They would walk straight past trash on the ground, or dirty plates on tables without even noticing. This made the patio area consistently dirty and cluttered. However, this would not stop me from returning.
