    Food was mid at best. Service was okay, but the restaurant should’ve provided more than one serve for a large party of 15+ people.

    Honestly I've been here before and they're normally decent but last night they seemed to have completely drop the ball. From waiting 40mins after reservation to waiting almost 2hours for a meal. To getting a salad that was just the head cut into four pieces... This was by far one of my worse experiences at a restaurant.

    Going for valentine’s was the worst. Service was the worst they were not giving the experience they mention. We didn’t see the different cut meats, they took out order and the food came out an hour after. They even forgot one of the appetizers. They left our drinks on empty. Food came out unorganized. I ordered the Kobe beef $600 worth it came out with no sides. By the time the sides came out it was cold. Very terrible experience.

    My reservation was at 8:15pm top seating. I waited 40 minutes to get a table. I talked to the guy at the front multiple times & his response “I got you a table at the bottom but you refused” so what’s the point of making reservations & requesting table seating if I’m going to wait 40 minutes and not get the table I requested for??? It was valentine day I understand but waiting 40+ minutes after making reservations is bad service to me.

    This restaurant has become my favorite place to go to. The food hasn’t disappointed any of my party… and when we came back… the 2nd and 3rd time, the food we reordered didn’t change. I know that sounds weird but we like consistency. Sometimes, restaurants have a good plate I like and so I come back when I crave that plate only for it not to be the same as the last time. La conde on the other hand, has not done this. I know I have left a review for them before but they are that good at being consistent with their food and service… Thank you La Conde

    It’s an ok place, ambiance is nice, We had reservations on a Saturday night & were Seated in the Bar area tho which only had 3 tables side by side with a glass wall between the bar area & main dining area, seemed like it would have been more entertaining to be in the main dining room where most of the action took place. Food & Drinks were good, Our server was just ok. Feels like we didn’t get the experience we had been seeing all over social media.

    This place has great food and especially yummy drinks but it takes itself way too seriously. I made reservations for a Thursday and was warned several times that if I was 10 minutes late they would give away my table. They required a credit card for the reservation and threatened a $40 per person fee if I did not show up. Not a soul was there. This place has the makings of a great experience but needs to focus more on making people feel welcome. Also almost no vegetarian options.

    There was a hair baked inside the cheesecake. Called my waiter and their response was to go home and have tea to feel better. The cheesecake was taken off my bill but it was more like they were doing me a favor. No manager ever came to apologize. Very disappointed, first time there and worst experience ever.

    They didn’t have many of the wines. They were likely understaffed with only one person working the room, who was very attentive but too much to handle for one person. Nice place, very loud music. Unfortunately restaurants at this location don’t last too long.

    It was an empty restaurant that was so loud bc of music you couldn’t hear anyone at your table, had to tell them to turn it down twice. The drinks were the best thing there. The grilled cauliflower was actually just an entire baked head with sauce that tasted like a bad version of in and out’s. The burger that I ordered medium rare was completely grey and slimy, also too salty to eat. The prices were exorbitant, and they don’t tell you but they do a 20% tip on a bill over $200. Which is pretty easy considering the prices. Overall this “mexican” restaurant doesn’t know what it wants to be and needs to focus on the quality of the food over the gimmicks.

    The food and the ambience was great, tasty drinks.  What I didn’t agree with was them charging us for water. They did a cute water presentation but charge $20 for it. (which we weren’t told ahead of time that it would be $20) been to plenty of steak houses and they do not charge you for water or soda refills.  Small cup of soda was $5.  also, they push the airplane shot show on you which is 7 shots for $100.. then they slap a convenience fee of $23 on top of the tip. So they charge us 23 extra dollars for the airplane shot presentation. On top of the $250 tip Kalaveras also does something similar but they don’t charge you an extra fee.

    Awful not with the money and time. Not what us use to be. They force a tip on $200 and up even tho they’re barley attend you. I would give zero stars and didn’t even wanna pay the bill on how bad my experience was for my special someone’s birthday. Just awful

    The experience was cool. It’s very aesthetically pleasing. The staff was welcoming and very friendly upon arrival and while communicating over the phone. The DJ was rocking when we got there then boom midnight came and the jams were over. I recommend keeping the DJ at least until 1 AM, I think I would’ve had a better experience as we were celebrating a birthday. The food was delicious and service was cool. The pricing wasn’t bad. I’ll return for sure and will recommend to others

    The salad arrived and it was full of old wilted lettuce. They replaced it with a Caesar which had stale croutons. I took a few bites of the burger which was horrible/gross and asked the kind server for the bill. I tipped him 20% because he was nice and I felt bad for him to have to serve food that was inedible.

    I went for my birthday ambiance was good. Food took forever and came out all weird. My sides came out before my food took 20 min for my food to come out after getting my sides then had to take my sides back to warm up again waiter apologized. One person got his only and had to eat with out us because our food took so long and his food was cold. I am pregnant and asked for my steak well done I got my food last and my steak was super pink the waiter took it back to reheat brought it back but with out my other stuff of the plate he had to go back a dm get the garlic I also cut my steak to see the inside because I could clearly see the red from outside the he brought back my steak how I cut it but not the piece that I cut. Horrible experience for me. I was so excited before going there.

    I’ll never go back. The service was ok but the loud music kept our table from hearing each other while we talked. The o here was one table off tacky women who were there for a birthday.. mid 50s. Soo loud and obnoxious. One wore a dress and her boobs literally fell out. She tucked them back in but- ugh.

    Great for a birthday, but otherwise, just eh. If you heard about this spot from TikTok or Instagram because of the drinks, I’d recommend skipping the food and just getting a spot at the bar. They are really incredibly designed and the staff is amazing.
