Mexican
We create authentic Mexican food inspired by the cuisine of Mexico City and add a modern twist. Imagine grilled fish, chicken or steak topped with one of a kind signature sauces like chipotle-wine and Portobello mushroom or sautéed artichoke heart and roasted red bell pepper. Pair that with our award-winning margarita, the Casa Rita, made from fresh lime-juice and the finest tequila and you’ve got what we call Modern Mexican.

    The young female hostess that seated us was rather rude and very unreceptive to my request for a different table. I made a reservation for a birthday celebration and when we arrived, she sat us at a table right next to the bar. I asked her if we could be seated at a booth or another table and she said ONLY parties of four or more could use the booths. Okay, I get that but she did not offer any of the other "out of the way" tables or seats that were open. We arrived and left during your slow part of dinner on a Thursday, 4/18 so there was plenty of room to be moved. She did not offer another option when I asked and gave me a dazed look without a response to my request of moving to a table more private. So I said to her, "well, I guess not?" She turned around and walked away. My husband I and immidiately looked at each other and agreed that she was too young to be a hostess and obviously did not like her job. This is ashame because this was our first impression and it was not a good one at all. Your hostess sets the mood for the evening and should be cheerful and accomodating when possible. Our waitress was great, especially after one of the managers reminded her to refill our teas and water. After that reminder, she was extremely attentiove and did a nice job with our service. The food was EXCELLENT! Thank goodness because this would have been a no return visist if it was not a good meal. The sparkler on the dessert was a nice and welcomed surprise for my son. This was a special celebration for our son's birthday and he chose the location based on two excellent reviews from family and a friend. I would recommend your hostess stepping up her game or find another job. Thank you for what ended up as being a great meal taste wise!

    Waited forever for drinks and chips.. waited for order to be taken. Waited for check. Waited for credit card to be picked up. It was awful with no apologies. Seemed as if waiter was stoned. Think we won’t be coming back atleast anytime soon. You pay too much for this Mexican food for poor service and mediocre food

    Was excited to take my wife here after seeing the menu and skirt steak fajitas etc. the fajitas were so tiny compared to our other local faves. It was ridiculous, she had carne tacos and those were abysmally tiny as well. Value for cost, def not here. My portion of fajitas was about 1/2 the size at any other mexican restaurant. Th meat and shrimp were ok, but $60 for 2 people, no way. Its not about the $, but the value was terrible for the cost. Wont eat here again.

    Overhyped and bland with cheap string lights on the windows. The beans were woefully unsalted, and the rice hard as heck. Also, we made reservations for late 8pm.... they close at 9pm? but their phone lines say 10pm? what? would not come back. Rather go to Taco Bell.

    Went during lunch hour, was not crowded, easy to get a reservation. The food was not traditional Mexican food, more comparable to Chili’s type of food. Waiter was slow, had to ask for water refills even when he we set our cups out to the side (making it obvious they were empty). Probably won’t go again. Not a bad lunch, but not good enough to repeat.

    We brought our twin one-year-olds to support our friend who was playing in the bar area and celebrate a friend's birthday. It was nice to feel comfortable having the babies there. The staff were very accommodating, the food was great, and the birthday girl had fun! I live close by and pop in somewhat regularly at different hours and always have a good experience.

    Cantina Laredo was pretty busy the night we dined there. It seemed they were understaffed. The food was good however it would be nice if they had a plain sweet tart margarita on their menu. The one I got tasted like dish soap and I had to exchange it and even the new one was not good.

    The experience was underwhelming. A Mexican restaurant that had ran out of rice and cheese. Go figure. A waiter who was checked out the moment we checked in. The whole experience was unacceptable even if it is your worst day. Not to mention that the food came out cool/cold. The manager had the poorest excuse ever: I haven’t been here that long. And didn’t even offer anything out of courtesy to make up for it. Lesson learned: this is a restaurant that is to be avoided any time soon, unless you’re really desperate and out of options.

    When we arrived with a party of 5, we were told they could not seat us. Like really we were turned away. I then went on open table and made a reservation for 20 minutes later for our party of 5. We were seated in about 25 minutes. Kind of upsetting that a restaurant would literally turn people away, but honestly I am not sure if management knew that was what was happening. In the end the food was delicious and service was great. Hopefully management sees this and corrects this.

    Loved the food. Really amazing drinks. Unfortunately our waitress while polite rushed us through our experience, telling us the bar had closed when clearly it wasn’t and then not offering us dessert. We were there at 8 and rushed out at 9. Really disappointing.

    Took 20 mins for me to get another waiter's attention to ask if we had a waiter. Then took another 10 minutes for the bartender to become our waiter. Took 10 more minutes for our drinks. Guacamole came out with no chips. Had to wait another 10 minutes for chips that came at the same time as our meal. Throughout this whole thing, my husband had to get up 3 times asking if someone would help us. Bartender never came back the entire meal to check on us. It was New Year's Eve and according to their website, there was a fixed meal you could order. Bartender had no idea what I was talking about. Food is fine but nothing spectacular. Service has always been slow. We will not be returning. Too many other Mexican restaurants around.

    We had a reservation for a table of eight and were able to be seated right away when we arrived. That's the best part of our experience. Even though we had an early evening reservation, Cantina Laredo was full and there did not seem to be enough servers. We had to wait over 30 minutes to give our order and had to try to find the wait staff a couple of times to check on drinks. Our food was cold when we finally received it. We live in the area but this was the first visit there for most of us. We will not be back.

    We arrived were seated, hostess was pleasant, server took drink orders, delivered water, 20mins before drinks and chips arrived, placed dinner orders for 6 took another 30mins for food to arrive. Very short staffed, our server was serving 6 tables 3 of which was large groups. She did her best, we were not offered dessert menu. All in all it was okay, but will not return.
