While the food was good and our server was excellent, I really did not feel safe while dining in the restaurant. The bartender never had her mask up over her nose and mouth and many of the tables were too close for social distancing. Literally a table of six was sat adjacent to our table where I had to move my chair just for them to squeeze in.

I was disappointed in the staffing. It was national Margarita Day and there was only one server who was covering 7-8 tables. He absolutely was busting his butt to keep up, but couldn’t always be on top of things. I hope others tipped him well like we did.

The TV noise was EXTREME!

The food was just OK, but nothing to recommend.

My husband and I went for a night out. We shared a pitcher of margaritas, sounds like a whole lot more than it actually is, but they were good. The food was excellent. I absolutely love their salsas. It wasn’t crowded, and we were told to sit anywhere so we picked the private room at the front. We were the only ones in the rooms. We enjoyed ourselves.

I had all but given up on the idea of dining during the time of Coronavirus, but Cadillac Bar advertised their social distancing policy and offered safe dining spaces for those who made reservations. I took a chance, made a reservation and determined that if I didn't feel comfortable once I arrived, I would order take-out and wait in my car. When my friend and I arrived, we were whisked away to a table in a separate space that had exactly zero other diners. Our servers (one was a trainee) wore their masks properly the entire time, our food came out quickly and was pretty good. The only thing I wasn't a fan of was the queso dip, too thick for my liking, more like melted cheese than an actual dip. Sangria margarita was just right, loved the tamales!

Beef Fajitas we're on point, I would put them above papasitos or even El tiempo or Guadalajara. I was not expecting them to be that good. I recommend ordering their fajitas and a pitcher of margarita.

Over priced food and drinks for what you're getting. Pretty limited menu. It was so cold in the restaurant we all had to keep our coats on (all 6 of us).

This place is just a bar to hangout and drink for Happy Hour. Food is served but bad, very poor service. When I arrived asked to speak to someone concerning my reservation. I was told to sit anywhere, we sat in a booth in the back the waiter had to come out from the bar to wait on us. When our drinks came out, they were horrible, the drinks we asked for were Manhattan and La Paloma they had to substitute ingredients needed to make the drinks. When the drinks were brought to our table, I asked if they would please make note of confirmation with Open table for our reservation, the waiter said fine, but never did call. The food was served cold and tasted horrible, the only thing we enjoyed were the tortilla chips & salsa. I had to call open table with the information from our paid receipt to confirm we did keep our reservation in order to get our 100 points. I will never go back to Cadillac Bar, nor would I ever recommend it family or friends. We had to endure hearing a drunken person singing out loud the entire evening. DO NOT EVER GO TO THIS PLACE FOR DINNER!!

We were trying the HRW dinner offering. Overall our group was satisfied with their choices. Personally, I loved the campechana, but my tampiqueña plate wasn’t warm when it arrived & the sopapillas were disappointing, but I have always loved the Cadillac Bar and will continue to visit as often as possible.

Went for lunch during HRW. The food was delicious. We were given so much food that we needed doggie bags. Will definitely go there again!
