We spent over two hours here. Our waitress was Stephanie and she was not only short and almost rude in her responses to us, she barely checked in. After waiting an hour for food, she came to the table and asked what I’d ordered. Then she lied and said the food would be right out. How will the food be right out when you either put my order in wrong or didn’t put it in at all?? We waited another half hour for food just for it to come to the table with one of the entrees cold. If this had been my first experience at Blanco, we would NEVER go back. Extremely disappointing all around but that waitress, at the BARE MINIMUM, needs much more training. She was the worst part of our experience.

The queso dip came out without the beef we ordered, the guacamole had no seasoning, and the service was mediocre. I’ll never eat there again.

Michael was our waiter. I was impressed from the very start because when he greeted us, he asked if any of us had food allergies. I’ve never had a waiter greet us and ask us this question before.

He checked on us in frequently, but not so much that it was over-bearing.

The food quality was excellent and paired nicely with the service. It is obvious that service is a center focus for the management. The restaurant was clean, had a great vibe, and felt like we could sit and hang out all afternoon.

I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are near the Galleria.

It was my wife’s birthday. I selected “birthday” as the reason for booking through Opentable...I guess the restaurant doesn’t see that because there was no happy birthday dessert or complimentary item. We saw other table get a dessert, but didn’t feel the need to have to tell the waiter since we thought it was clear when we made the reservation

This is a great new addition to some of the top Mexican restaurants in Houston. Have been twice and will return for more. The nicely designed interior using lots of stone tends to make it feel a bit noisy.

Food portion vs price could be better especially for “posh” Tex mex. There is better for more authentic, flavorful and better portions for the price.

Hostess was rude and ran into me (no apology) when we mentioned that we wanted an inside booth when she had to turn around from directing us outside. :(
The food was really terrible, queso appetizer, just plain bad, crispy tacos, some weird bitter taste. Overall just awful. The server was lovely, great and attentive though.
Food here needs rehaul.

Brian, our server, made the night! He is prompt and pleasant and upbeat.
Wasn’t impressed with the hostess who offered a less than welcoming “can I help you” and no eye contact, despite the fact we stood patiently with no one else around.
Nice manager escorted us to the patio.
Notable on the food: the elote (street corn) is savory but a little watery. We asked for off the cob. That means someone actually cuts it off the cob at the restaurant (which I could have done, but it was offered). I think canned corn was used because the dish was overly watery. When canned corn is used, you lose the grilled corn taste too. So just ask for a sharp knife and DIY.
The tortilla soup was the opposite, it was more like stew (not enough water). Perhaps the corn chips were too big (versus strips)?
The fish tacos made the mark as my two friends finished those down.
Loved the pineapple jalapeño margi. The froze was tart and actually good (thanks for the sample) but it was too chilly outside to enjoy.
I’ll be back 😀

Service was horrible. Waited 15 mins before anyone greeted us with drinks or chips. First waitress seemed disinterested and rushed. During shift she apparently went home. Ankther waiter took over and the service picked up after that. Will give it ankthwr shot Bc the tacos and drinks were amazing, but service was poor overall
