Terrible service. Had to ask everyone else to get our drinks except our server since he never came to check on us. Food was not satisfying either. Overall very disappointing experience. 13/10 would not recommend.

Service was outstanding. Several managers stopped by to ask about the food and the drinks. Food and drinks were wonderful. Great ambiance on the covered patio.

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.

Ambience was okay but food was subpar. Fish tacos were not hot when arrived and dry. Boyfriend got the carne asada tacos which was 2 strips of steak per taco. Overpriced for what he got.

I've gone for drinks on a Friday night and had a good time. Great ambiance and great crowd. I went back with girlfriends for dinner and had a poor experience. Service was super slow even though there were only a few tables. Once we got our food it was not great. The soups were all way too spicy and I love spicy food. The quality of the entrees was poor. The forgot my friends dish, comped it and then brought it out. Then brought out dessert to make up for it all but we did not want any of it. Mexican food normally comes out fast and is delicious so this was a surprise to our group. We will not be back.

From the hostess to the server, it wasn't the best experience. Had a reservation and didn't seat until thirty minutes after that time. The waitress we had that night clearly was new and having Megan (who's amazing) the other night up on the rooftop, it was a completely different experience. No silverware, sat us at a four person table with five chairs, and just wasn't an on point server. The food and drinks were delicious, just wished the service was better.

The whole experience was super slow starting with being sat 30 minutes after our reservation. Then service was slow and food was mediocre and some was overcooked. The waitress rarely came around. In my opinion the staff was unorganized and lacked any leadership.

The service was slow (although friendly) and the drinks were fine at best. Our server told us the bartender was new and a lot of the drinks had been sent back that night. I’m not surprised to hear that. Maybe the drinks are better with their other bartenders.

Treated a girlfriend for her birthday. Service was spectacular & quick. Food was delectable. Birthday dessert (fried strawberry cream cheese chimichangas) was presented with sparklers and the taste was to die for, so make aure you save room for dessert. 😋

We ended up having to make a reservation for a time-slot that was totally inconvenient for us (wanted 7:30 they said they only had 6:30 and 8:30) and when we got there the place was about 65% empty and remained so for the rest of the evening. Our waiter Garrett was incredibly condescending and we had to repeatedly request items because he clearly could care less about us or our experience at Vidorra and never brought what we requested without a follow-up request or two. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

I had made a reservation online for 9:00pm last friday and was about 10-15min late because the weather was bad. When we got there they had told us our table was given to a big group that had arrived but the the hostess was SO awesome! He had a great attitude as soon as we walked in the door and didn't shame us for being late. He told us what had happened with our table, but was so quick in finding another spot for us. He offered blankets to keep us warm and just had a great attitude (can't say it enough). Service was a little slow but we kept getting chips and salsa so i guess that's ok. Food was good. Background music was great! Great place overall!

I took my boyfriend to Vidorra for his birthday! Our experience was absolutely amazing!!! The food was great, hot, fresh, and authentic taste! The drinks were superb! The best part was the service! Food was brought out timely, we were checked on by our server, hostess and the manager. Also the decor is way cool!! Moss covered walls in the back with really cool couch seating and ropes! This will be our new spot and we coming back this weekend with our friends! They brought my boyfriend a sweet little surprise at the end! Thank you guys!

How fast the food got to the table was the only redeeming part of the service. Totally understand that it’s a new place and they’re still working out the details but hire a staff that doesn’t lose your customer’s card and then claimed to have given it back to them.

Also - terrible parking situation, late seating by about 20 minutes even though we had a reservation and the music was so loud, we all had to shout at each other.

There’s plenty other great Tex mex places in Dallas, save your money.

Came here with a group of friends visiting from LA. We had a great experience. Food was delicious. We ordered a variety of items from the menu from the fish tacos to the fajitas to the enchiladas and all were very good. The avocado salsa was so good we talked about it the next day.

Overall my experience was good. You can tell they are still working out the kinks though. My frozen margarita was completely liquid because the margarita machine wasn’t “warmed up yet” according to my waiter. I wish he would have mentioned this when we ordered them, or given us an opportunity to select a different drink. My entree was really good (fish tacos) but my rice had 3 lemon seeds in it. Great view of the skyline from the roof!

One of the worst dining experiences I’ve had. I walked in and was ignored for 3 minutes while 4 people talked amongst themselves about tables. They didn’t even acknowledge my presence so I couldn’t check in. That took another 5 minutes to get us to our table. We ordered drinks and they came after our appetizers. The waitress couldn’t even identify which drink was which and gave them to the wrong people. Food took forever. They never asked if we wanted refilled or new drinks. We ordered a round of shots that took 30 minutes so we didn’t even want them by the time they came. Then they decided to split up our bill (we didn’t ask for that) and it took a solid 45 minutes. They put all of the appetizers on my bill and added 20% gratuity to each tab. The most they offered us was a $10 card to come back and we all left them on the table. Will NOT be returning. Ever. I’ll be shocked if the place stays open another month. Absolute nightmare.

Vidorra is a gorgeous space. The outdoor patio is beautiful and spacious for dining. The food is not quite there yet and may never be...it’s not bad, just average. I will definitely return though...Vidorra has super fun energy and everyone was extremely nice.
