Our waiter was terrible. Left us alone and forgot part of my order. I asked for salmon medium and it came out very well done. Not impressed. This place is normally better.

I took my Mom to Cantina 1511 for Mother’s Day and it was absolutely wonderful! The service was outstanding, as was the food. I was a little concerned about eating inside, but we were the only people in our section. I will definitely be back to Cantina 1511!

Had a reservation, arrived early, was seated near bar. Rare date night for my wife and I. We were there 4-5 mins when greeted and ordered drinks from a young man who worked behind the bar. Drinks came pretty quick. Soon after order was taken... normal. Here’s where it went bad. We never got chips and salsa. After 12-15 mins, my wife finally asked. While waiting on chip, her meal came. Soon thereafter, my fajitas came but there was no fajita plate ( sour cream, quac, lettuce, etc) waited 7-8 mins. We finally had a waiter come by and ask. 10 mins later, got the plate with flour instead of corn tortillas. Asked for corn, 5 mins later got them. Fajitas now cold, meat dry and chewy. Just not good. Told the waiter, he still charged full price. As a fan of the restaurant, super disappointed. Not a great night for us.

Our server was cheerful, but service was slow, and he chose to take our order while one of us was in the bathroom. One of our party had to leave the table in order to find someone to refill our drinks, and dirty dishes (including appetizer plates) were not bussed until after the check was paid. Food was slow in coming out (not just at our table, but seemingly on the entire patio), the table next to ours wasn't greeted promptly and had to flag down a server. I guess the managers were busy fighting fires, because no-one stopped by our table to inquire about our satisfaction.

Poor service but we could understand and accept that aspect of the experience. However, the food was really poor. They don’t seem to take any pride in the flavor and it was room temp at best.

The, Erica our Server, was wonderful in helping us decide on what to order. And though it was a busy Saturday morning, we admired how attentive Erica was. We really enjoyed ourselves!

To be a Mexican restaurant I expected more as far as flavor foe the food. The guacamole was very bland, and the tacos were not the best. This has been the worst Mexican restaurant I’ve ever been food wise. I would not recommend this place to anyone

Overall food was great. Usually love the queso and not sure if recipe has changed but wasn’t as good as it typically is. Best chips!! Salsa was super...but one bowl was very hot and others not so much...apparently they all came from the same batch?!?! O wrap we enjoyed our meal very much.

Great service from our waiter !! The Queso with chorizo is the only thing I would go back for. The ambience is great and I’m sure when it warms up their large outdoor patio will fill up. I just wasn’t impressed with the quality of their food especially the tacos. But definitely will go back further queso with chorizo

I was very disappointed with my soup and street corn I mean it was a Mexican restaurant So I thought ordering the tortilla soup would be good and tortilla soup was disgusting and the corn was very cold, the manger did take it back but I was so disappointed I just didn’t want to eat anything else, never had this happen to me

I have never been so off put by a restaurant before in my life. When asking for chips like a regular mexican restaurant, we were told they were charged as an appetizer? Is that not the most absurd thing you’ve ever heard? I’ve never paid for chips at a Mexican restaurant in my entire life. For this reason alone, I will not be returning. Did we still pay for them? Of course. Because you can’t have a Mexican meal without some damn chips and salsa. It’s just not right. Anyway, our server Dustin was phenomenal and an absolute delight.

You can't do Mexican food much better than Cantina 1511. The food was amazing. Best chips, hot sauce, and guacamole around. The taco's and fajita's were excellent and we appreciated that every Covid safety procedure was strictly followed. Cannot wait to go back.
