    The food was overall good but the avocado in the guacamole was not ripe enough which resulted in large, hard chunks of avocado in the dip. The queso dip was quite salty. In the future, I will avoid any of the chips & dips appetizers but I really did enjoy my entree and the service was spot on.

    Ordered drinks and they were taking forever so we had to cancel them. I would have liked to try a couple of the margaritas but we had into cancel after waiting over 39 minutes for them🙁

    We’ve been to the downtown location multiple times and have loved it, but this was our first time at the Chesterfield location. What “ruined” our experience was the pace. It took on average 15 minutes to get our drinks (we ordered 2 each), and we waited over 30 minutes for our food. My meal was cold when it got to me. We weren’t in a rush so we didn’t cause a fuss about the slow service, but twice someone came up to us and asked if we had ordered anything because we had been sitting there for so long with nothing at the table (once was after our first order of drinks, and once was while we were waiting for our entrees).

    The prices are ridiculous for what you get. The noise level was absurd. There were families sitting on either side of us. Every member of each party was on their phones/devices. The entire time the man to my left was playing a video game with the constant sound of machine guns. The child was playing a loud game as well. It was not an enjoyable atmosphere.

    I think the food is pretty good, and lots of great flavors! I looove the idea of the 20% service fee so staff is paid a livable wage, BUT the staff didn’t even wait on us. We had to wave people down to get refills and it just didn’t feel like they were even working. Maybe it was just an off night but it was pretty disappointing. We were treated like an inconvenience whenever we’d ask for refills. Great idea, very poor execution.

    If you want to scan a QR and provide personal info just to access a menu and order your food thru a phone, this may be your place. The restaurants blended service model leaves much to be desired. Printed menus are not available and the restaurant is staffed for customers to order on their own. The wait staff will take your order if requested, but the limited staff is stretched to thin because management expects the customer d.i.y. model. Wouldn't mind the mandatory 20% gratuity if the wait staff was actually expected to carry out their traditional roles. On a positive note, the food was well prepared and enjoyable

    We took advantage of the "Halfy Hour" promotion and got 50% off everything - drinks, apps, entrees. Excellent deal! We enjoyed Mexican beers and shared shrimp fajitas plus chips with salsa, queso and guacamole. It was all delish, as usual. We love Casa del Barco!

    Delicious, my second time coming here. Highly recommend the queso with chorizo! All three of our drinks were tasty too. Super cool place too. Only negative it was eerily empty, admittedly we went on a Sunday night, and we also seemed to have a different server come to our table each time which was a bit impersonal.

    Food good. QR code ordering terrible. Why are we expected to pay 20% gratuity when the wait staff don’t do anything but bring plates to table and take plates. You have to use the QR code to order more of anything including drinks. Ridiculous!

    We had a great experience overall, but the server was having an off night. She did maintain a great attitude. The ordering system was glitching, which resulted in extra food being prepared and going to waste. Some of our guests wanted to pay with cash, and not through the system, so there was some confusion there, etc. Nothing major. The food and drinks were great.

    I went here for a girls night out. I only see these friends twice a year and unfortunately, we all forgot that Casa del Barco uses the same QR/barcode system as the Boathouse. It was extremely frustrating. Not only do you need to scan the barcode for the menu, you have to order your drinks, appetizers and meal through the app. AND you have to complete the order for each item. For example, if you just want a drink and appetizer to start the meal, you need to complete the transaction and then do a separate transaction later for your meal. And they add a 20% charge to pay the wait staff. My one friend had an old phone that wouldn't scan the menu and my other friend couldn't figure out how to complete her order. We asked if they had physical menus and were told that they don't. We were so busy dealing with all that, we felt stressed and not able to focus on just being together. I will not be back to this restaurant, the Boathouse or Island Shrimp due to this. The wait staff are basically food runners. They don't do anything....don't take your order or anything that normal wait staff do. It's disappointing that all these restaurants that actually have good food make me never want to go back due to the way they have this set up. Please go back to menus and letting the wait staff do their jobs.

    Using your phone to order is annoying and not a good customer experience and there is no way to call the servers if you need something. Food was average with the exception of the chocolate eclair cinnamon thing which was quite possibly the best desert I have ever had. Also there is a 20 percent service charge added to everything which I guess is supposed to be for tips but then when you go pay it defaults to 10 percent for additional tip So the restaurant wants a 30 percent tip and there are no wait staff in the conventional sense

    Facility was having toilet issues on all levels. Ran out of glassware which put the drink order way behind. No service had to order everything from your phone. Then that add a 20% gratuity. Probably will not return to this restaurant.

    I enjoy going to other locations much more. Our drinks were disgusting; we took one sip each and were done. The food was prepared differently than it is at other restaurants and I felt like we overpaid for what we received. The patio was freezing but we weren't given the chance to sit anywhere else.

    It was another friends birthday and we had a late lunch to catchup and just enjoy each other’s company. The contactless ordering and payment option was very convenient and easy to use. We laughed and made memories while sipping our drinks and enjoying the music. We dined indoors since it was a bit crisp last night.

    My family went for National Margarita Day and they didn't tell you that there was a discount code for half off the drinks. The way to order using the QR code groups the table together instead of just showing individual orders. The food portions were smaller and the shrimp taco is basically on a black nacho chip. 0/10 would not recommend.

    The food is very good, we had a child with us and she was very happy too. This isn't your hole in the wall Mexican and priced higher accordingly. They use the Toast ordering system which is relatively easy to use but outside of that the service is very attentive. Happy Hour Beer prices are very reasonable.

    Didn’t appreciate the automatic 20% service charge. We sat down, we’re told to open the app, order our food and drinks, and anything else we needed…just go to the app. What is the 20% for? They claimed it is so they can pay their servers a fare wage…not sure what servers they were talking about when they only thing we didn’t do as customers was get up and go the kitchen to pick up our food. So not worth it. Seems they are headed to be an overpriced Taco Bell
