    Great food, service and ambience. Super cute restaurant with amazing drinks. There was a band that came around to all the tables and played while involving the crowd. We had a great time and there was a ton to look at. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. The presentation was very fun.

    I visited this restaurant twice, once in the summer and once in the winter both times the building was freezing which is surprising as the restaurant was packed both times. Food was excellent, service was good and the overall ambiance was engaging.

    Food and server were excellent. What fell short was that we had confirmed a reservation ahead of time and that they would have a high chair available for our two year old (we planned to cancel if they did not have any available, babysitter fell through). When we arrived they wanted to seat us at a table with the swing chairs with our child, which would not work and when we were seated at a regular table, they didn’t have a high chair available despite confirming 2.5 hours prior to our reservation. Everyone was wonderful in accommodating after the fact but it would have been better if there had been some prior planning.

    We set reservations through open table, a spot on the second floor was confirmed, notation was made that is was our anniversary, 34 years. They sat us behind the host counter on the first floor. I’m a big guy and we were cramped into the smallest place in the restaurant, loudest, busiest… It took my wife 20 minutes to find a parking spot and then it was two blocks away. When my wife finally made in she requested a different table, non was available, not even the one they said they had for us on the second floor. The waitress took the menu from my wife’s hands as if to suggest she could show her better what to get...how would that make you feel…? No chips or salsa was offered but you could purchase it for $$.$$ The steak I ordered for $29 was 7” long and cubed at 1.5 thick, I requested “medium rare” they gave me “raw” browned on each side…clearly their chef doesn’t know how to cook. You can hide many errors in spice, I know I am a cook… but you can’t hide undercooked… Our table was so small we had to remove beverages to fit the food. My $142.00 bill was the clincher, we left the correct tip with the plan to never return and to spread the word that this place is an overpriced hoax. We should have just gone down the road to the Cuban place they started out with… the food is better, cheaper and the waitress doesn’t take the menu out of your hand. If I could give zero stars I would… Expensive lesson learned. Will never return.

    I absolutely love the food, service and experience I have with each dining experience at Guacamole! It’s a great place for date night, birthday celebration’s (highly recommend for the ice cream cone) or just a girl’s night. I celebrate my birthday every year here, but love their Day of the Dead celebration too. I can’t give them enough stars!! Love, love, love! ❤️🥳

    Our server was amazing! They knew how to direct the menu for my gluten allergy and took care of those requirements. It was so cool watching the Paloma come out with cotton candy on top then dissolving to make the drink even sweeter. The Taco al Pastor was so tasteful! Loved the pineapple flavors in such a fun atmosphere!

    Got seated 20 minutes after our reservation time to celebrate my husband’s bday. After waiting for a while I asked again if our table would be ready soon only to find out the hostess forget to check our name when we told her we were there. It seemed like the hostesses were more concerned with talking to each other rather than welcoming and helping the guests during the busy hours on a Saturday evening. Also, our table was right next to the reception area so it felt like people were standing next to us watching us eat the whole time. Our server Karla was awesome though she is the only reason why I didn’t give one star, the food great as well.

    As always Guacamole doesn’t disappoint. The service was excellent, Ana was very friendly and sweet, came to our table fast to place our drinks order. They had Mariachi last night, they were amazing! I always try something new, I had one cocktail wit Tamarind, it was delicious, we love the guacamole with chicharrón, the tlayuda was awesome, very big! My husband had enfrijoladas, the short rib insider was so tender and flavorful. Not sure what they put in the beans, but they are so good! Still one of my favorite places to go!
