    Had a reservation at 8:45pm, didn’t sit down until 9:30pm. Came for the $20 unlimited tacos and $25 unlimited margaritas.. they were out of most of the taco options and margarita options… ordered the birria empanadas which were disgusting, soggy and had 0 flavor. It was $18 for two which was insane. The margaritas were extremely weak, more margarita mix than liquor. The service was also terrible, our server barely came around to our table and did not seem interested in helping us. The actual decor and vibe of the place is the best part but it doesn’t match the service or taste of the food. Overall, I give it a 2/10 and I will not be returning or recommending.

    I went for an intimate experience, but the tables were too close together. I could hear the conversation next to me. Food & drinks were overpriced for the quality. Server was good, it’s ok to go one time for the experience, but I will not be going back. Te Deseo is much better experience wise & food/drinks.

    It was nice for sure but is it a place I would have to go back to?? The answer is no. If I had visitors and wanted to show them the “Dallas” night life, I would take them there. But not a must go back for me.

    Have been twice in the last week just to give a fair review. The ambiance is nice and welcoming. However, The food lacks flavor and is over priced. The salsa was the best item and it is free.

    They cram you in right next to other customers. The hostess are super rude! We waited for 30 minutes after we sat down before our waiter came to the table. We ordered drinks and they took another 15mins to get them. At that point we finally got a menu. We ordered birria empanadas and enchiladas. The rice was burnt and the empanadas were mid at best. They were out of the one dessert we wanted so the waiter referred the tres leches cake.. DO NOT get it.. It was by far the worst cake I have ever had hands down! It straight up tasted like a cake from the grocery store. The atmosphere and the look of the place is amazing but, the food quality and service was absolutely horrible..

    NOISE LEVEL WAS OFF THE CHARTS. We made reservations for a nice dinner before a Broadway musical. Well, that didn't happen. Our reservation was at 4:30, however, they were still serving from the brunch menu. We were told that once the Chef stopped serving brunch, the kitchen would need an hour to switch to evening service. This is one of the worst experiences I've had in a very long time. I would not recommend this restaurant unless you are looking for a nightclub disguised as a restaurant.

    I was very disappointed in my visit. Party of 4 and it was our first time visiting. From start we were seated at time of our reservation but had to wait a full 45mins before our waiter even came to introduce himself. We had a time frame for bottomless mimosas. We couldn’t even drink because waiter never came back to check on us so I believe we had one mimosa each the whole visit and still was charged fully. Food we ordered was incorrect and then some food wasn’t prepped. Again after ordering he didn’t tell us until 30-45 min later so we didn’t eat.. We ordered shots waiter told us we had to wait cause too many shot orders before us so he wasn’t going to put order in. The whole visit was as just upsetting when we planned on a great Sunday funday. I do believe I seen other waiters and bartender at front plus host had great energy and made few moments with us appealing. Music and environment was great cute little place to visit just not on a busy night and definitely not with a bad waiter.

    Beautiful place ruined by poor service. We were a larger party and felt like we didn't receive proper attention. It took at least 10 min to be attended, 10 if not more just to get water, then finally drink orders were taken, but the drinks didn't come until the food did. We would've all happily tipped extra on top of the already included gratuity, but definitely was not earned. Will not be returning or recommending this place.

    The waiter was terrible, young man was on his phone the whole time hanging around the bar, checked on us a total of 3 times and we were there for almost 2 hours. Food was also not very good, and came out cold. Was a Friday night and not yet busy at the time.

    It was the worst experience ever, the service was very disappointing and the food quality was poorly. My boyfriend ordered steak and lobster and when I tell you when they brought the food out and we saw the lobster I thought it was a piece of cheese. I would like a full refund asap and I will be calling them to complain

    this was the worst experience i have ever had. the waiter ignored our table all night. we were a party of 8. we were treated so unfairly. we all received our food at different times. and when we asked for service to fix our food. the waiter never came back, our food came out cold every time. the manager was so rude.i mean rude.this was the worst birthday dinner ever. i will never return. if you want to be treated like scum this is the best place to go.

    Host sat our party of four in a both made for two, so we had to request to be moved into a more spacious table. The establishment did not have certain beverages. The bar tender and server forgot my drink order after going through a back in forth about them having ginger beer. I ordered the strip steak medium, it came out well. Food wasn’t worth the money. Very unhappy customer and will not return.

    Great place for drinks, but wouldn't recommend the food. I had the Birria Steak, which sounded amazing and highlighted as the best thing on their menu. The presentation once they bring the steak out is amazing! Unfortunately that was the best part. The steak was overcooked and flavorless, which was a surprise given that its soaked in birria sauce. The broccolini was the best part of the meal. My friend ordered the filet, which was a little bit better. She also ordered the mac and cheese from our servers suggestion, and neither of us could eat more than one bite of it. Again, great place for drinks!

    The service was terrible! It took 20 minutes for a server to give us a glass of water after being seated. We kept asking multiple people for service but we didn’t get any until constantly requesting service. Food was not good and overpriced for taste and quality. The shrimp was extremely overcooked and the pork chop is dry. We went for dinner. We will not be returning.

    The margarita drinks were watered down. The chicken enchiladas with sauce was flavorless and beans were disgusting. The best thing on the place was the rice. My two guests were charged $25 erroneously for bottomless mimosas that they didn’t have during happy hour. A waiter brought the wrong food and drinks to our table. It wasn’t even 18 people in establishment so I don’t see how they could get this wrong. I was excited about visiting this place and I was let down. Not a good first impression not to mention it wasn’t a great way to kick off my birthday.

    This is the third time I’ve been here and unfortunately it doesn’t get better. I had to ask THREE TIMES for a server. There was hardly anyone even in the restaurant. I don’t understand how so many servers can walk by and not notice ten people with no water or menus sitting there. No one asked if we were celebrating anything and it was my birthday. Food is mediocre at best.

    Was very excited to try this spot after seeing it on social media and while the atmosphere is cool, the night started off rough when for a party of four, we had to wait for a majority of the party before being sat. It wasn’t quite busy in the dining area, but even when everyone arrived, still had to wait for them to see if the table was ready. The server took a while to greet us, and even then, we didn’t get our drinks until 40 minutes later. But that was only the cocktails. I ordered a regular non alcoholic beverage and it took another 15 minutes after the drinks arrived when the server informed me they were out of lemonade. The food came out warm, not hot. Ordered the birria strip steak, but no steak knife. It tasted a little like butane, which I guess is because of how they lit it on fire. When we asked to a manager, someone who said they were basically a manager came to hear the complaint, but when we explained the above, instead of trying to appear to care, they said it’s the holidays and a Saturday night, so it’s going to take servers longer to get to us. They only had one person working the well, so drinks are going to take 40 minutes. And there’s a rush, so the food isn’t going to come out hot. So they excused everything we said and took off the cheapest appetizer and meal and called it a night. Which is something, but it still didn’t leave us wanting to come back. And then it took another 30-45 minutes before we could get the check or payout. Overall, we were frustrated and just wanted to leave and it ruined what was supposed to be a nice night. We came in knowing it was going to an expensive meal, so we expected at least some type of quality service, but we were let down from the beginning.

    If I could give this place zero stars I would. The food and drinks were not spectacular, the service was horrific, & honestly the place is hyped up on tiktok just because of the aesthetics. There is plenty of cute restaurants in Dallas I’d avoid this place at all costs. I came to La Neta in Dallas with a group of friends for my Birthday. They did try and bring out surprise cake to help with the terrible experience. But it was too late I was ready to go.

    A very disappointing experience. The entire staff all seemed overwhelmed and it was not that busy of a night in my opinion. Once we were seated, it took about 30-45mins before our drinks orders were taken. Food orders were just as slow if not slower. I will not be returning nor recommending this establishment to anyone.

    I made reservations for a party of 10 for my birthday. When we arrived they told me my table was ready but my entire party had to arrive…ok. When my party did arrive the table wasn’t ready we had to wait an additional 15 mins. I then asked if the table was ready the manager states give us a second we’re cleaning it. Finally we get seated, get to the table and whoever cleaned wiped everything off the table into the chairs. We notify the waiter & he apologizes but we still had to clean it ourselves. We sit down and the silverware from the previous party was still on the table with food on it. The appetizers were better than the food, the drinks were nasty. Water taste like faucet water, but they sell “Italian” bottled water for $8. The waiter was nice

    They wanted us to order all three courses in advance, which was okay, we did order a bottle of wine, which we wanted to enjoy, we ordered an appetizer, after getting an appetizer, they brought out our main course literally after 5 mins. We requested them to take it back and bring it after some time which they did. This time, after just a few mins, their supervisor came to the table and said should we bring out the food. It just got uncomfortable at this point, and we asked them to bring out the main course. THE FOOD WAS BRUNT. I did show it to waiter and ask him to smell. We were so disappointed. We just asked them for a to go box, paid the bill, and left the place. Spent more than $150 bucks, waste of money and time.
