    We had a great birthday dinner there last night. Mischa (I think I spelled it right) was a great waitress. She was so attentive and one of the best we have ever had there. The food was great and walking around the canal walk after is a cool experience. Overall we really like this restaurant.

    Walking up to the place looks cool as it’s near the canal and the murals are cool. The inside looks pretty cool as well. However, that about where it ends. I’m not gonna say the food was great it was at best mehhh. The queso was salty. It was saltier than the chips. The chicken tinga was moist but dry at the same time (the taco was moist but when you got to the chicken it was dry and over cooked). The birria tasted bland and so did the consume. The al pastor had a decent amount of meat on it but also tasted bland. I needed habanero hot sauce to give it some flavor. My wife did not like the chicken enchiladas. The enchilada were crunchy and dry and not soft. They weren’t covered in sauce or cheese. Service was ok. The guacamole and salsa were probably the only really good thing about the meal.

    They were out of everything. I ordered a Mimosa - they were out of orange juice. I tried again and ordered a frozen Margarita - they were out of something there. So I finally ordered another drink, which I got after I finished my meal. They also brought out everything staggered with our order. One dish came out very quickly, then two more a while after that, then the last one took forever to come out. Then it took a while to get our check. Don't think we'll be back again.

    The service staff forgot an entree, pretended they didn’t forget to put it in, they served us cold food. We had them remake the food and they were not very happy to go the extra mile to remake the cold food that had clearly been sitting out for a long time. The service was slow and the staff was not super kind. I loved this restaurant and wanted to be able to celebrate my graduation here with family in a fun environment, but they truly put a damper on a big celebration and night.

    Great locale and vibe. Food was spectacularly mediocre at best. I make sheet pan veggie fajitas at home in 20 minutes and they are a million times more flavorful than any of the items we ordered (chix tacos, mushroom tacos, albóndigas). Our server was “ok” but the other staff we encountered were great. Recommending no per question below but if you can iron out the food issues I would consider returning.

    We have been at other Casa Del Barco’s and had decent food. The one at Shockoe Bottom has gone majorly down hill. There was ZERO seasoning in any of our dishes. There was 8 of us. All of us had the same complaint, and not only was the food probably the worst meal I have ever had in Richmond, but the price point for terrible food didn’t help. Now with everything said about the food, the drinks on the other hand were on point and were great. Each one of us had a drink from the bar and all of us thought the drinks were great.

    The best part of this restaurant is the atmosphere if you are outside overlooking the canal walk. Inside is extremely noisy, but spacious (so chances are good you can get a table). The other reason why it is easy to get a table is because the food is average at best. Our waiter was great and we enjoyed him.

    Food was great. Service was adequate. It's the little details like having to ask for a fork and knife after our food arrived.

    The food was very good and portions were generous , but the wait time from ordering until receiving our food was almost 45 minutes. Also, you had to pay for chips and salsa…really?! That being said…the salsa was REALLY good.
