Tables are very close~ squished together too tightly in my opinion. Both tables on either side intruded into our conversation. Weird. Food is great! Service was so so.

It was a rainy Valentine's Night and the place was packed. We had reservations, inside, which was good cuz everyone on the heated patio sat down bundled up and nobody took any layers off. Our server Daniel kept apologizing for the slow service but he was blameless and working very hard. Oddly, at a place that prides itself on excellent margaritas and similar drinks, there was only one bartender and that process was visibly slow. When the food arrived, it was excellent, I mean Great. and they comped our 2nd margarita, so all forgiven. Not that we were feeling slighted, whatever issues were in kitchen and behind bar, the servers were impressive.

Cold food. 4 people not served together. 2 served then at least 10 minutes before the others served. Had to ask for meals to. Be served. Ordered another round of drinks and had to ask for them to be served after about another 10 minutes or so Really a bad experience. And we had been there least 5 times before so a big disappointment Embarrassing as we had brought an out of town guest

I had the spicy seafood stew..It was excellent. Had the finish of it the next day at lunch. My friend had the braised short ribs and said it was very good as well. Cocktails are fabulous. Can’t wait to return.

A hidden gem with authentic Oaxacan food. The food has layers and layers of flavors. They have a ton of different tequilas and have a wonderfully priced tequila tasting menu.

Food was nothing special. Salsa had a smoky one dimensional flavor. My fish tacos had a strong flavor of oil. Good chips and Guacamole. Staff friendly. Busy parking lot. Ambience was Chipotle plus. No draft beer. Plenty of Tequila choices but I did not sample any. Might be worth a happy hour featuring tequila drinks.

Enjoyable Mexican food with original delicious salsa and chips. House margaritas were absent sufficient tequila which is disappointing when you order a margarita even at happy hour.

“Nouveau” Mexican. Interesting menu & some outstanding different cocktails. The restaurant itself is beautiful - very rustic & cozy. The patio is a great place to sit...much quieter than inside. Service has been great every time!

We took a young couple for a wedding celebration that occurred last December. I made a res. They gave us a perfect table and perfect server named SEAN. Sean was awesome and treated us special like the evening dictated. We loved our menu selections. Sean was attentive, funny , while being professional! Thank you Cascabels for a perfect celebration of great food and great service.

If it's warm enough I would suggest sitting outdoors, just because the inside sounded echo-y.

But the service was good, and the food was very good. Not your run-of-the-mill Mexican fare, you actually can get a good mole sauce on your enchilada, and the beans were real. The guacamole was mostly avocado (the right way to make it) and the chips were obviously made there.

We'll be going back.

We have been there twice now. The first time it’s like we were being rushed and had an argument with the waitress over what I had ordered. Second time we had to wait for a reservation and then had to wait a long time for our food. The waitress tried her best and was embarrassed by the wait for the food. As for the food, there are many Mexican restaurants in the area that are much, much better for food and service. We will NOT return and Cannot recommend Cascabel.

Another Open Table failure to check me in when arriving.
This has happened several times to me and it’s getting old.
I arrived and my friend and I decided to dine at the bar, I informed the bartender ( he was management) about my open table reservation and I could tell he wasn’t going to check me in.
Needless to say, that’s exactly what happened and I had to email Open Table about what happened, they took care of the issue.
Just like the Beer Baron, they don’t check you in so they don’t have to pay the Open Table fee. Then they shouldn’t participate in the program!
Shame on these establishments, hopefully Open Table puts them on notice.
