    I felt very rushed. The reservation was for 9. We were told the kitchen closes by 9:30 and the bar by 9:45. While the kitchen is one thing, we hadn’t even been asked for a drink order until 9:20 because service was lacking and only 3 tables. If you are going to take reservations until 9 keep the bar open until the table is finished. I definitely will not return as a late dinner

    We didn’t know who our server was. They got our drink order wrong, brought us the wrong appetizer and my order of the Roasted Mushroom Quesadilla was literally plain tortillas. When I received it back, it was thin tortillas with barely any mushrooms or cheese. $13 for little slivers of mushroom! The classic margarita was the only good thing.

    Our group of three booked the outdoor area and had a wonderful experience. While a couple of staff members were newer, they were exceptionally well-guided by the GM, Ricky, who was very attentive, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of Otra Vez. The meal, drinks, and ambiance were all exceptional. This was our first visit and we will certainly be back!

    My friends and I decided to get together to have a mothers night out and we were really looking forward to dining at Otra Vez. We are all first time moms and this was one of the few times we’ve been able to hang out, unwind, and just have a good time. The food was great, the ambiance was nice, but the service however was poor. Our server seemed very unhappy/irritated to wait on us. It was almost as if she couldn’t wait for us to leave. We all got margaritas(which were good), but we were never asked if we’d like a second round, she didn’t check on us after we got our food to see if everything was ok, and when one of the items that we ordered came out a little burned; we brought it to her attention of which she rolled her eyes and said that she’d have the manager come speak with us and take it off our bill… The manager never came to the table. Towards the end of the meal/ night we felt “rushed” to leave the restaurant. Keep in mind it’s 9pm and the restaurant closes at 10. At about 9:30 the lights came on and a few minutes later we heard the bar tender say to another staff member “I meannn I cut the lights on”… as in “Why are they still here.” Needless to say what should have been an enjoyable night with good food and good vibes ended up being a disappointment to say the least. I doubt any of us will be back.

    Otra Vez is good food but very expensive for what you get. The drinks were excellent and the tacos were delicious but they were only 2 per order, they were tiny and they were the most expensive tacos in town. They have a few kinks to work out here byt I have high hopes. Also, I know avocados are expensive right now but $17 for 1/2 cup pf guac was crazy. Send a boy to Costco and pick up their $6 bags of 6 giant avocados next weekend and give peeps a price break! Smetimes you gotta think outside the box!

    Lovely, modern layout with tall ceilings and nice touches of lighting, art. Food was very tasty. Guacamole, Guajillo Salsa, Corn Tostadas, shoestring fries with aioli sauce, Crispy Tempura Shrimp, Celery Root Remoulade, Chorizo Dust were delightful. “Crispy Tempura shrimp could have been crispier. Was really looking forward to a nice ending with the vanilla ice cream, peanut brittle dessert, but brittle was stale.

    My friend and I who love going to otra vez were next to a lovely group of young ladies. The manager was being very inappropriate and loud, sat at their table talking about personal matter, and starting touching their hair… he was so loud my friend said something and he told her “well you can get the f*** out” not to mention he was intoxicated. There are a lot of details of this that I will leave out. I love the food but if the manager is still around I will never be eating there again. Never in my life did I expect a situation like that to happen at a high end restaurant with the manager, so disappointed.

    The male host was rude. My party of 4 was early and he said, "you are early and your table isn't ready so you will have to come back later." The majority of tables were empty so that didn't make sense. We weren't offered to sit at the bar and get a drink or to just sit and wait. We had to leave and come back. We almost didn't come back. The were out of the breakfast burrito on the brunch menu. Zara the waitress was great and the food was good not great. It was just a bad start that left me not wanting and will not be back.

    This restaurant has a lot of potential. The ambiance and margaritas were the best part. The service was slow and I did not feel welcomed. The food was just ok, but over priced for what it was. In a city that has so many great restaurants, this is one I don’t see myself coming back to.

    Came here with a group before a show in Champions Square. Happened to make it for Happy Hour ending at 6 and ordered all food in the happy hour menu and it was enough for 6 people and all delicious - especially the queso. Got margaritas frozen and on the rocks and both were great. Fried shrimp taco was a bit odd but the steak taco was good.

    Guacamole for 17.00 barely fed two people rip off. I could have made that at home. Fish tacos were not cooked all the way through. I had to send them back. So sorry but I was not impressed. However the brunch menu looks great so I will go back and try that Service was amazing. Our waitress was very nice and accommodating.

    Awful service!!!! RUDE Ricky the GM refused to seat my party of 2 in an EMPTY restaurant. Although there were reservations available on Open Table. He claimed there must be a glitch. HOW? 🤦🏽‍♀️ so I never got to experience the food or drinks. We were asked to LEAVE his establishment after questioning why there were plenty of empty tables and we could see availability on Open Table. I hate to make it about race but I do believe it was because we were black. Will not be returning here and will implore all of my friends not to dine here as well. I’ve never experienced anything like this.

    Sunday at 11:30 a.m. I asked for a side of eggs on my grits but they couldn't do it? Why? My husband's eggs on avocado toast was stone cold. The manager said that avocados were cold and that's why the eggs were cold. They redid after a bit of a fuss. Music was glaringly loud for a Sunday morning and the manager eventually turned it down but not without some push back. All in all, expensive small portions, inhospitable management, and cold food. Won't be going back again.

    Came for a solo brunch. Atmosphere was cool. Music was dope- 90s R&B vibes. Had an upscale look with a casual friendly ambience. It’s cost efficient to just get the $35 bottomless mimosas for a hour with 1 entree included. I had the steak and egg tacos(3). Zara is who waited on me and she was awesome.

    Waiter was very rude and was not clear on what we were being charged. He rarely came to our table and we had to ask multiple times for him to bring our drinks. Three out of four of us had the exact same orders (# of drinks, food, etc.) and yet all three of us were charged something different. Was really looking forward to trying this place, but I will not be returning.

    It was extremly hot in the place. Very empty restaurant, made a big deal about not wearing a mask so we put a mask on just to be seated right next to a group of people. Also pretty sure our server Trey was still partying from the night before. We ended up leaving.
