Horrible overall experience on what was supposed to be a very special evening.

Seated immediately at 5pm - but on patio in full sun - had to ask for shaded table (the entire patio was open with only 1 table occupied).
Never was asked what we wanted to drink after we told him we weren’t ordering any of the alcoholic drinks he was pushing.
Chips brought fairly quickly.
We were there 30 minutes before order taken - remember restaurant was empty. We had to find waiter to place order.
By 6 we still did not have any of our order - no refill ever on the chips.
Had told them we were in a hurry to get to a show and we needed to leave by 6.
When I went to tell them at the front we were going to have to leave they didn’t seem to care. When I told hostess I guess i didn’t need a check because I was never provided with anything ordered we found her with 2 more sets of diners with the same complaint.
Will NEVER go back.

Birthday experience was sun par. Been here three times. Decent food and great atmosphere but simply not my favorite. If just going for drinks, great choice.

Really good Mexican food in a new-age style (not Tex-Mex). The quality is great (particularly the brisket tamale and shrimp corn cakes) and the drinks are even better. They have great cocktails that really make this a fun date night or friend night. We also got the fried chimichangas and YUMMMM!

Great restaurant for ambiance. The maragaritas were great! The food was just okay. The service was terrible the server was not very attentive, in the whole 2 hours we were there we seen our sever twice. I had to flag down other servers just to order more margaritas and chips for our queso. It also took a long time for our server to bring out our food! I would only return for happy hour. Not worth the regular pricing! This was our first time visiting and wasn’t impressed. I also requested seating on the second floor patio only to find out it’s closed til 5pm. What’s the point of making reservations if you just seat us anywhere.

Drinks are perfectly strong! The shrimp was bomb. Overavall though the food was subpar, needs more seasoning. I didn’t touch the refried beans, yuck! And the white rice? Bland.

Our table upstairs had an incredible view of downtown. The decor of the restaurant is so cool and fun! The food was incredible. In Dallas there are a lot of Mexican restaurant options and this is by far now one of my favorites. The mango margarita, queso, and enchilada I had were all amazing. I'll be back!

4 people at our table--4 COLD plates of food. Slow service. Incorrect orders. SO disappointed! It was embarrassing to me, as I had invited guests to join us. They comped our food, although I did not ask them to. Still, the evening was pretty much ruined. It started so well! Good chips and salsa, decent margaritas, superb space. It just went downhill quickly after that.

I was really excited to try this new place out and was finally able to do so this past weekend and am extremely disappointed. The food was not good, the chips had a weird after taste that I was not able to get rid off for hours, the drinks were very blend and over priced. The service was good, the waiter was very attentive and the hostess was sweet. The noise level was too much, I felt like I had to scream just so my friend could hear me and she was just across the table from me. The ambient was alright, seemed more of a club scene than a dinning restaurant. Sadly, will not be visiting this place again.

We were supposed to be on the patio but they told us when we arrived that the patio is not a guarantee when making reservations. We were indoors and it was so loud we couldn’t have a conversation between the 6 of us at the table.

Needs improvement!! I really want to love Vidorra, but it just misses the mark.

SERVICE - I’ve been here on two occasions and my service was a 3/10. The servers were perfectly nice, just not attentive whatsoever. Don’t go if you’re looking for a well timed meal or are really hungry.

FOOD - it’s not bad but it’s also not great. The seasoning was just bland. Should rework with a chef that has some passion for flavor. 5/10.

DRINKS - meh. Def not the best marg in town or any other festive Mexican cocktail for that matter. 5/10.

PROS: The decor is darling. Great spot for groups.

Vidorra was good. The menu has a lot of variety and there is something for just about everyone. The service was good without being too intrusive-just the right amount. Me and my guests remarked that while it was enjoyable experience we felt like other places were better including E-Bar on Haskell and Jalisco Norte on Oak Lawn.

We arrived later than our 9pm reservation by 5 minutes and had notified the hosts about it 15 minutes prior, they let us know that it would be no issue. Our party of 2 was not seated until 10 pm. The entire time we received no communication and when we would ask the hosts what was happening they would just assure us they hadn’t forgotten us. Once we were finally seated it was inside and we had requested on the patio. We then had to wait some more for our waitress to even greet us and service through out the night left us continuously searching for our/a server. There seemed to be more than enough staff but service was incredibly slow. Our waitress was incredibly apologetic about the wait but our food had come out so late we barely touched our food. The music is fun and danceable reggaeton and indoor design is beautiful. The food, wait, and communication needs work.
