    We are visiting Austin and we saw this restaurant and it looked great! The place is beautiful and the service is very friendly, the food is delicious but very pricey $$$$ and you will get charge for extra tortillas if you order more to finish up the delicious queso asado. They don’t serve guac and chips or salsa as am appetizer and the server will tell explain why and it’s a good explanation! The chef was very kind to prepare for my 3 kids chicken quesadillas (pricey for a kids meal ($16 each and not served with any sides) since they don’t have a kids menu, so definitely not a kid friendly place if your kids are picky eaters. The guac was delicious but it has to be ordered with the food not as an appetizer. The plates are very small so not shareable. And also don’t check the menu on open table since they have a different menu at the restaurant. I told them about but it seem it’s has not been updated. Go directly to the web page so you don’t be surprised by the menu and the prices ;) I would definitely come back, maybe as a date night, friends get together and no kiddos!

    Food overrated for the price. Summer ceviche dish odd combination of a creamy sauce and spicy jalapeño. The “chips” are stale blue corn tortillas and not free. Service was slow. I’m general dishes either over or u set seasoned. Best item was the queso flameodo, but don’t order the quesadilla which has same exact taste profile.

    Not what it used to be. Cocktails are great but the menu was very limited versus pre-pandemic times. Pretty expensive too for the portions but am generally not dinging it too badly on this due to our inflation. Fresh flavors but all in all missing it’s stand out qualities from the past.

    Our experience was a brunch benefit, so energy was high. The atmosphere is fun and pleasant, a colorful environment. The tickets we purchased did not say what was included - for the price, we thought at least one cocktail or appetizer would be included, but no. The drinks were $15+, with a pitcher of drinks @$70+, which was full of ice - not worth the price. There were no other options, nothing offered under $15+. However, the food is tasty; salsas/dips are unique and flavorful. The service was welcoming and informative.

    It's been a few years since I've been here and this time wasn't as satisfying as I remember in the past -- and they don't have chips and salsa on the menu anymore which is very sad for Austin, TX. The service and ambiance was top notch, the food was solid but not mind blowing for the price, same for the drinks. Y'all should bring back chips and salsa and make the mezcal/tequila flights more customized instead of a set menu. That said it's such a beautiful place I'll always be back.

    The food was good. Little weird that their was absolutely no music playing at all for a 7:45 dinner reservation. Not a fan of the ambiance as you could hear everyone’s conversations. The menu was very over priced. Visiting from Chicago and $18 for a Marg and $15 for guacamole was absurd IMO. We got a pitcher thinking it would be more bang for our buck to then get a bill for $85. Wasn’t worth the $250 tab for two IMO, could’ve went to a steakhouse.

    Showed up with a reservation but they didn’t have it in their system. Showed them the reservation but they stated they couldn’t seat us. They said the entire city was having an issue with their management system which might be why they couldn’t see the reservation. Didn’t ask if we could hang for a few moments to see if they could get everything up and running. No real genuine sorry’s. No attempt to make it right. We asked if we could sit in the bar for a drink and wait it out, they declined and stated they wouldn’t be able to seat us period. We tried to hit up multiple nice places just to see if they randomly had a table and none of those restaurants were having any sort of issues. The whole situation was just poorly dealt with and felt very disingenuous. I love La Condesa but I won’t be going back.

    We were trying something new. We had a difficult time trying to find the entrance. Once we did, went and were seated. Atmosphere was nice but a little dark. Got water immediately. The server came over and explained everything on the menu using her camera’s light. She was outstanding! I wish I could remember her name, though. We got drinks-a strawberry margarita for me and a tequila based for my husband. Small drinks, but tasty. Got the queso flameado with chorizo. Not bad, but the chorizo needed more flavor. Entrees came. We looked at each other and laughed at the smallness of the amount of food! Ceviche for my husband-bland. 1 short rib taco for me-ok. Overall, we won’t be going back.

    The service was not good, it took a while for a server to actually come to the table and ask for our drinks — after that another 15-20 min for the drinks to come out. After that, we ordered and the food was super greasy. I am from Mexico and appreciate good Mexican food but for the price of each plate, this is definitely not worth it. I will not be coming back, which sucks because it used to be good and the prices were decent.

    It is not the same. Understand covid got all restaurants a bad turn. Miss the different guacamole tasting. Received burnt very hard blue corn chips. Not good. Your ceviche used to be sooooo good. Miss the cauliflower dish. But the best was the carrot dish, very good. Service was very good. Everyone very nice and knowledgeable of the food. Are you under new management?
