    Food was sub par and the service was even worse.. queso was made of velveta. Food was just very lack luster. Drinks were equally as forgettable.

    I’ve been to Otra Vez a handful of times. I always enjoy the environment; good music and aesthetically pleasing. The food is always so delicious. I’ve been for brunch, lunch time and dinner. Consistent food taste. The only thing that is consistently not great is service. The last few times I’ve been I’ve had the same server and she is not at all pleasant. From the initial greeting to the closing out, she never seems to want to be there. The first server I had was so nice but she’s never there anymore so she might not work there. The bartenders appear to be nice so maybe I will just sit at the bar next time.

    The place is beautiful and the food is pretty good. Service is not very good not because they do not try but because few of them running around. For this level of restaurant should have a more professional staff. Overall pleasant experience.

    We were seated by a very polite host for a 10am reservation, received water and was then ignored for over 30 minutes while tables around us received service. As a result of this, we left the restaurant.

    Great ambiance and wonderful friendly service from everyone! The food is excellent…. I was a bit disappointed they were out of mushrooms (so non meat options were limited) and I wish there was a less hot salsa option, but the salad, guacamole, chips were perfect. My husband said it was one of the best steaks he has had. We will definitely return.

    Excellent upscale Mexican restaurant right around the corner from the Hyatt Regency. This was my 2nd time here, liked it so much I had to give them another try and they did not disappoint. Some of the food is on the pricier end like $13 bucks from two veggie tacos but everything is fresh and delicious. The drinks are on point as well. Highly recommend this restaurant!

    Our server was great and the restaurant is beautiful. But the food is over priced and not good. Had to send multiple dishes back to the kitchen. I ordered the Gulf fish plate which was supposed to come with plantains according to the menu. It came with fried bananas instead of plantains and no one let me know about the substitution prior to getting my meal. Bananas are not a substitute for plantains. To be fair the fish itself was cooked very well although it wasn’t seasoned. The tacos I ordered as a replacement meal were good but 15 dollars for 2 tacos and no sides is a rip off. I will not be returning.

    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.
