From the moment we walked in we were taken care of. The service was exceptional, the food was over the top delish!!! We have already made reservations to return to take others to experience this wonderful place. Be sure to try the Street corn....scrumptious!

The food is great! The cocktails are just okay especially for the price. This is an upscale cantina, but the drinks are small and not very good. The dessert menu needs to be expanded. The noise was way too loud. You could barely hear the person beside you! I am afraid it is a place we will not frequent very often because of the noise!!

Tried to give this place the benefit of the dought first time tab was 239 food had no flavor and burned second time 120 tab tacos were disgustingly greasy and burnt the other day 159 dollars drinks tasted different every time for the fajitas again and just to be disappointed once again not to mention tortillas were cold and hard will rather drive an hour to superrica instead of giving my hard earned money away!

We really want this restaurant to be successful but.... the noise level is ridiculous. It was almost impossible to communicate with our waiter, he is required to wear a mask ( which I understand and support, although many of the staff wore them below their noses, why bother) and it was impossible to hear him. Salsa's and chips were great . We ordered fajitas which were good,but 3 tortilla's? Ask for more and they charge you.

The wait for food and drinks was long. The server did his best. The music this time was intense and did hurt the ambiance after a while. We were happy to retreat outside after dinner.

They have the atmosphere perfect, but the food was bland. We had several different entrees and they all tasted the same. We hope this is corrected quickly

Service was spotty and way too noisy! We literally had to shout to one another. Turn down or better yet, turn off the music! Building already has poor acoustics. Finally found it disappointing I was charged an additional $2 for two extra Fajita soft taco shells. 😟

Would’ve given 5 stars for the food but one of our plates came out cold. Cheese inside enchilada was still shredded cheese... wasn’t even melted. Once it brought to the manager’s attention, she was nice and comp’d that dish. Waitress was slow and disappeared often... but it was a Friday night so I’m sure she was busy.
Great ambiance and decor!

Went for a birthday. Food wasn’t that good. My al pastor tacos had no meat, just charred fat. Salsa was great and our server was so lovely, just felt like the food wasn’t good.

Mas Amor Cantina is a fun, energetic, and delicious new restaurant. We enjoyed tequila flights, a signature beverage, and shared an outstanding combination fajitas.
The flavor of the wood fired chicken, steak, and pork belly were mouth watering. I particularly enjoyed how they were served individually on the sizzling platter - which insured each flavor was unique. Also, the 3 salsas and thin, tasty tortillas were a great start to a wonderful meal. We will return soon!

The food was fresh with a lot of good flavors going on. In a repurposed mill, the space was clean and sleek with Mexican tiles around the bar areas and a cool plant wall separating the bar from the main dining area. Service friendly and attentive.

Great Mexican Food! We just moved here (orig. from So CA) and have been looking for great Mexican food. We found it! Mas Amor Cantina is fabulous! Fun atmosphere, attentive staff, delicious food & great drinks. Your table comes with light & crispy corn chips & a trio of yummy salsa's in 3 levels of heat. We also shared but did not finish the house-made Chips & Queso, Street Corn over Fajita-style Grilled Veggies, Birria Steak Tacos & Pork Tamales both with the most flavorful dipping sauce & the Chicken Quesadilla all delicious. Mas Amor Cantina is a Must Try!! Our server Brooke was fantastic offering suggestions & allowing us to try a sauce before ordering. We only wish they opened a little earlier for a late lunch or Drinks & Tapas. Thank you Brooke & all the Mas Amor crew! We will be back soon.
