I don’t think i would return to this restaurant. Both waitresses i dealt with seem arrogant and not trained accordingly. I would say when the server was asked to bring sparkling water since i didn’t want tap water the bottle was taken to the table with no cups to pour it in (odd). Nicole was very dismissive in which i literally had to get up myself and walk to the bar to get napkins. I was then given a mojito with no straw to drink from and the ones provided were not for the tall cocktail drinks. I was very disappointed with the service/staff... i literally asked for my tab once i tried the appetizer —-drinks i didn’t like or couldn’t even drink, the appetizer was good but the service provided effected the enjoyment and the entrees i never took with me which totaled a $170 tab that was a waste of time and money.

Came here on a double date and it was great. The atmosphere was very energetic and the live Cuban band added to the ambiance. The food was good we had the queso fundido, fish, steak and steak tacos there were no complaints from anyone. Our waitress Nicole was friendly and the drinks were mostly good the watermelon and grapefruit margaritas are worth order. My boyfriend had a mojito but it was too tart so he ended up just ordering whisky on the rocks. Overall a fun time.

This place always hits all the marks. They work hard to deliver their customers a consistent, high quality experience. The live music transports you, the food is authentic and full of rich Mexican flavors, and the drinks...well, they are dangerously irresistible. Bravo.

My birthday dinner went without a hitch. They were super accommodating as we bought our own cake , and we were a big party. The music and ambiance were perfect for a group dinner. The food was great. Highly recommended for a group night out or a date night.

It is unfortunate that the overwhelming and rushed service overshadows the entire experience especially the meal. Food was fantastic; but for the value of the food and drinks, I shouldn't feel like I am being watched. We were a party of 4 in the high chairs section, place had empty seats and we were interrupted constantly by the waitress - it became obnoxious since this was all happening while we were eating - to the point that she spilled a beverage. We even had to tell her that we were not done with our plate because she wanted to remove it - more than one time.

We made a reservation through an open table app. It's unfortunate that such lovely looking restaurant can have such a plain food. The mezcal pineapple margarita unfortunately is sweet and doesn't taste like it was made with mezcal. Our waitress Jasmine was sweet enough to offer a margarita off the menu with Mezcal and grapefruit. I asked for it to be served up. The first one was delicious. Unfortunately when I ordered a second one, it was served in a wine glass. (I'm sorry but for $16 I don't want a drink in a wrong glass because you run out of glasses). I sent it back. My fish tacos were drenched in fried batter and oil, quite awful actually. I think those had to be the worst tacos ever. My husband had a $27 skirt steak which was just just okay and sort of chewy. Overall ambience is great, interior is pretty. Unfortunately upon getting the bill we noticed the $10 per person charge for the live singer... Common Guadalupe Inn, I would love to tip the singer, but a forced charge on our bill without knowledge? You can't afford the live show, don't do it ( I was told by the waitress there is a sign as you walk into the place... Well that makes it better... We did see it on our way back...)

Absolutely amazing! Went here to celebrate Valentines Day & our engagement celebration dinner, and every aspect was amazing!! The Guacamole was amazing and most importantly... FRESH!!! The tacos and the carne asada steak plate were both the best Mexican dishes I have ever had!! Book early as reservations go quick sometimes!! Definitely recommend!

Lovely restaurant with great drinks, service and music. A little hard to hear the music sometimes, but a lot of fun. Be advised though that they only allow you 2 hours at the table and there's a $10 surcharge for the music if you are seating by the stage.

We were welcomed and attended by 3 people. The service was great. We had our 18 month old son with us and didn’t bother to ask for a highchair, the staff didn’t seem bothered by that. The food was nicely plated and delicious. The drinks were also delicious. We enjoyed our experience and plan on returning for a date night.

On Christmas Eve, my partner and I enjoyed the tasty enchiladas verdes and the carne asad tacos in the ambient light of this pretty restaurant. They even gave me horchata when I asked for it, even though it wasn't on the menu! The tres leches of chocolate was also sooooo good!

This was a very nice, upscale Mexican-inspired restaurant. I would call it more bourgeois or boojie than authentic though. I'd recommend it if you are out in Bushwick, otherwise I may stick with other upscale Mexican places closer by.

It's hard to tell if I would recommend this place to a friend. I came here around 3 pm with my family to celebrate my grandmother's birthday however I assume that most people come here for the live entertainment which starts around 5-6pm. So my review is simply based on service and food. The food was good. I'm Spanish and I grew up on a variety of spanish foods, so maybe I'm being too judgemental but I didn't find the food exceptional. In a matter of fact, I found the breakfast better than the rest of the food.

Service was "ok". The waitress seemed bothered to be there.

A group of our friends were exploring Bushwick and discovered Guadalupe Inn. We were there on a night when they have live music, but sat out by the bar and skipped paying the cover charge. We all had different dishes, the food was tasty and authentically Mexican with a modern twist. The classic margaritas were best in class. We are looking forward to a return visit!

The food was very pricey and not very good. The Octopus( $20) was chewy and the flavors of the mole were not well matched. Carne Asada($27) also chewy and the crema con rayas was bland. The enchiladas were on par with take out Mexican. The place is well designed and interesting. Very disappointed in the food.. it’s too bad. Will not go back or recommend.
