    Everyone was so kind. Reserving ahead of time allowed us to enter the facility right away without having to wait. The food was spectacular. So elegantly detailed. I will be back.

    Table was way to small for dishes. This was kind of a small plate menu but no help was given for that Mentioned it was a birthday party and there was no recognition when others got some Disappointing. Cocktails were outstanding.

    We had been there before for drinks! We checked out the menu and we’re excited about what was offered!! I was a bit disappointed in the food, but the drinks, service and attention was fantastic!! I hope you rethink the total nightclub vibe and concentrate on upscale food!!

    Booking for a big party of 8, they accommodated us by sitting us in the vip room! We had the room to ourselves which was great! With it being St Patrick's day the music was extremely loud at the bar. Our waitress did a great job with everything and recommend some great tequila. Food was very good and once we were done eating our waitress found us a table by the dancefloor. The rest of the night went well. Overall had a good experience

    This is a weird place. Luminex Y Sal is a casual Mexican place, so Cantina 31 is supposed to be a more upscale and formal experience. Upscale applies only to the pricing. Some dishes are good, some are really off (like the salmon). Setting is separate in an upstairs room, but really just another casual bar space. I’d not go back.

    The food is horrible. It is over priced for what you are given. I understand it is modern food but that is just too much. Perhaps if the food from Limon y Sal is offered upstairs it would be much better. As far as drinks they are good except the female bartender kept of grabbing her hair and scratching her nose and then going to make the drinks without washing her hands. On top of that the waitress took over an hour after our arrival to even ask if we were ready. Never did she come back to ask how the food was. Do not get the $62 crab plate it is horrible or the 12 hour “Birria and Consomé” you are better off going to a food truck just like what I ended up doing.

    The food, service, and ambiance is absolutely perfect. Very refreshing and classy place. Oysters are the best I have ever had. Pork belly and chevice is a must try! For my entree I had the Lobster elote pasta. Now I know why this entree is a sell out. The freshly made pasta is paired perfectly with lobster and corn in a buttery white sauce.

    Drinks were overly salty as if there was an accident with salt. Glass used for Paloma drink was not the appropriate glass to use. The one tostada is difficult to share for two. Use your small bite tostada or smaller size. Or say it’s an aperitif for one person
