My husband and I waited over 30 minutes just to get our drink order placed and that was pretty much the pattern for the rest of the night, all for overpriced, mediocre food and drinks. Never going back.

We sat for one hour and got 1 drink. The server was rude which she explained away with “well it’s been a hectic day”

No wine, no diet soda. Sold out of food at 6:30. Food tasted good except the potatoes were uncooked. Valet cost $10. Definitely won’t be back.

Food was okay. Staff must have been low, as service lacked. Waiter forgot a couple items of our order.

Great friendly service…. The menu was interesting had a interesting combination on flavors together… so my husband and I explored different items and it was great! He had an empanada as one of his appetizer that he said was incredibly good… not your usual greasy one that you get. My snapper had great flavor and loved the vegetables and apples grilled together. I highly recommend trying this restaurant!

Windows were open and our table was swarmed with flies.

Food was subpar. Tortillas were stale. Favors were dull. Would not recommend to anyone.

My husband and I were excited to attend Calle Onze's National Tequila Day event after seeing it advertised on social media. Glad we're made reservations because the dining room was packed!

Unfortunately, our excitement was short-lived because the waitress was unpleasant and impatient from the start. We tolerated her speaking over us while we asked questions and giving short, terse, answers, but we couldn't overlook her poor service when presenting (or not presenting) the tequila flights for the event.

We've experienced excellent presentations of flights before, so we knew that setting cups in front of us haphazardly while saying that she needed to take care of another table was not acceptable. The bar manager stepped in and worked hard to improve our experience, but the damage had been done.

We won't return or recommend this restaurant any time soon.

We sat outside where we have sat before but this time there were lots of flies everywhere. Not sure what was causing that but it made dining outside a nuisance. Also the music playing was too loud and too much like club music. Not the best choice for dining music. Otherwise the food and service was very good.

Overall it wasn’t a great experience. Our initial table was inside but it was so loud we couldn’t hear ourselves talk or what our first server was telling our table, to enjoy our meal we requested to move outside which they accommodated. The food was okay, nothing blew us away. The happy hour menu was a huge let down, we used to come to Calle Onze frequently because of that, but with the changes it now isn’t worth the price. We had several “snacks” as our sever called them and a few drinks, but left and had a proper meal somewhere else.

First of all the music was so loud you could not have a conversation , Open Table lists energetic as the top level. how about one that states too damn loud...

I went twice at night in the first 6 months of their opening and thought it was pretty good

Sadly there was nothing on the Open Table booking that told me they only had a brunch and bar bites available , I was hoping for a meal... My phone would not scan the QR code and I asked for a menu that they could not provide!! told kitchen close in 30 mins by the waitperson that had no interest in helping us find something to eat and finally gave us a bar bites menu.... worst crap I have ever had, quesadilla's , burnt, dry could not even eat, nacho's just some chips in a bowl with some cheese poured over...

No management or anyone who gave a damn, I used to recommend this place and not sure what the valet scam was as they asked for 10 in the beginning but when they came out he said oh no charge just a tip if you wish......

Service started out well but then it went really bad. Our waiter disappeared once he took our order. Our entrees showed up, and our appetizer hadn’t come out. We had empty drinks for a long time until the waiter finally came back.

Service and food quality had decline big-time since our las visit, pre pandemic. starting with a unexpected charge at the valet parking to the poor waitress service to poor food quality for the price. our group was eating outside, it started to rain and we were getting wet by water drops that filter throughout the roof. we were moved inside because we asked for. Also, cleaning person was mopping floor next to our table unnecessarily, we had to move away so he can finished what he started. thats basic, don’t disturb clients when they are eating, period. we wont come back again and will tell our friends to don’t even bother to go as well.

Overall I would say that the food is not good. Everything we tried to order was not available and the food that did come out fell short. The waiter was amazing and understanding. I don’t think I would come back just for drinks either. They were small and lacking flavor and alcohol. They need to reconstruct a better menu with better presentations. Note that on sundays, only brunch is available with no brisket items.

BAD experience! We've enjoyed this place in the past, but it has definitely gone way down hill. We ordered the grilled oysters and they came out raw and cold with cheese on the top that was clotted. The waitress apologized when she put them on the table and quickly took them back. THIRTY minutes later, she brought the oysters back and they were still cold and looked worse than when she had first served them. She took them back to the kitchen and gave no excuse for the failure. The cocktails were grossly overpriced and the order of guacamole we had while we waited was so small that it was served on a tea saucer. Three cocktails, a beer, and a spoonful of guacamole was $126.00. We will NOT be back.

I was extremely disappointed in the food on this visit. I've been to this restaurant on two separate occasions and I've never been disappointed in my experience. We had Guacamole and Queso to begin with our cocktails. The cocktails we great as well as the guacamole and queso. I had the fish tacos and my husband had the Tlacoyos. We were very disappointed in on entrees as they lacked flavor/seasoning. We live in the Heights and love supporting Restaurants in the area. I do not believe we will be going back.

The waiter was not in a good mode. Our drinks took 30 min and we had to remind him to get them. We tried to get his attention to order and when we did he said they were only offering the happy hr menu. After we ordered not only did they run out of one of the three items we ordered but All food items came out cold. Although it was a beautiful night to be sitting outside it was annoying to get the waiters attention each time along with the bad quality of the food.

They were unclear about their service for Sunday evening. They only had their happy hour menu available. This was not disclosed in the reservation. Even with a simple menu, they were having a problem covering the basics like getting water on the table in a timely manner.
The food is very good. The deep spice they use in their tacos really hits a good note. The patio is great and really allows for good conversation.
We’ve enjoyed this place in the past. This was not one of our better experiences.

Food was ok. Server was nice and knowledgeable but service was super slow. There were too few wait staff. Also another negative was no self parking or complimentary valet. With so many options in Houston they missed the mark. Maybe it was a situational one time thing, below average overall experience.

Epically bad service. Always make me nervous when the waiter doesn’t write down the order but then it just plain hacks me off when they proceed to get the whole thing wrong, which is what happened. Trying to be understanding and patient given reopening growing pains but at least do the easy stuff right.
Ordered some sort of Mexican old fashioned cocktail, meh. Had green chicken enchiladas (not what I ordered), which was ok. Will be back because I know they will get better.

I’ve been here before and had zero complaints. So naturally I decided to take some friends in town for Happy Hour. Not only did it take 45 mins to receive our drinks, it took 1 hour & 45 mins to receive our tacos and never came with our Guacamole. When we finally promoted the Manager she was unapologetic, rude and walked off. We did not want anything free or comped, but maybe an apology and explanation. We honestly really wanted our food.
After this experience, we will never go again.

Pretty quiet night overall but the restaurant is comfortable and friendly. I wouldn’t put my complaint with our service as I thought he was about as attentive as I could expect. I was not very impressed with the margarita, salsa was great, the rice was pretty bland for me, portions were fair but the shrimp was burned in our salad. Otherwise I thought the drinks we had were generally too sweet for me but my date enjoyed them. Thanks and I’d probably try it again in the future.

The food was outstanding. Very unique and creative menu by a talented young chef. Was very impressed by the chef personally going out to each table as entree’s were being served and making sure everything was perfect.

Superb sipping mezcal recommendations. The staff was friendly and service was excellent.

Very lively and fun ambiance with a mix of generations enjoying the restaurant and bar.
