Our experience at Cantina 1511 - Stonecrest was average at best. It was a Tuesday eventing and while not busy, the service was slow. I was also disappointed that when it was obvious that we were finished eating (napkins were in the plate), our server visited our table several times and did not clear the plates out of the way until they had to be removed so we could eat dessert. Overall, the restaurant was attractive and clean. The food was good although I thought the Sangria was somewhat bitter tasting. There are other options we would dine at before we return here.

We made reservations for 12 for a Ladies' Night Out, and unfortunately a couple Mamas had to bail last minute, so there ended up being 8 of us. I was worried this would be frowned upon by the restaurant, but our server was great, our seating was private and perfect for conversation, and the food was amazing! Great night out all around thanks to Cantina!

Drinks , chips, and guacamole we’re amazing. I was very disappointed that they could not accommodate my food allergy because they were “busy.” So I was unable to get what I wanted for dinner and what I did get was less than satisfactory.

We were given a private room for a birthday dinner for our daughter- she chose Cantina. The service was excellent and our server was fun and attentive. The food was excellent as always and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Cantina. We’ll be going back soon.

made a reservation for 6:30 for my birthday. My confirmation said 6;30 but the one sent to my friend said 7:00 so she was unknowingly late. They placed me at a TINY table , area so small I had a hard time sitting. Forgot my wine order.NOT HAPPY

It had been several months since our last meal at Cantina and we were excited to go back. However, I feel that the quality of food and drink has gone dramatically downhill since our last visit. The chips are thick and heavy, as opposed to the light, crispy chips from before. For the first time ever, we turned down a second serving and chose not to order guacamole. The margarita was very watered down with no flavor of tequila at all. Our entrees were ok, not great.

I never been to Cantina 1511 but thought I would try as a recommendation from Open Table. I was truly surprised to how helpful the wait staff was and the food was excellent. My friends I truly enjoyed our dining experience. It was my birthday and the staff made the occasion extra special. I will be back!

My first visit and it was fine. Service was good and food was too. Highly disappointed that a side of queso with our chips was $9.95 and we had to wait quite awhile for it. Entrees were only $10-14

We love Cantina 1511 and have eaten there on multiple occasions over the years. This visit was disappointing, service was slow even though they were not overly busy. The food was cold and it seems like changes have been made to the menu. Hoping this was just an off night because another visit like this and it will be our last.

We have been dining at Cantina 1511 several times a month for about two years. Our latest visit was a few night ago and I went with my adult sons and a girlfriend. We all had the best time! We love the food and casual atmosphere, and while food quality is important, we also truly appreciate friendly, professional service. Andrew and Matt are our favorite waiters and are quick with refills of drinks and chips as well as always greeting us with a smile regardless of how busy they are. Cantina has a great menu and all items tried have been enjoyed. The drinks from the bar are always enjoyed, too! We truly appreciate the great service and food and always walk out of there saying how nice our dinner was!!
