Cantina Laredo - Columbus Ratings and Reviews

We really enjoyed Catina Laredo. It's a nice restaurant, great staff, nice environment, and the food was delicious. I would have rated it a five but the tamales were a bit salty and the Empanadas were different than expected. We loved our server, Muhammad, was great. Very accommodating and friendly.

Used open table reward. Reservations right on and staff very friendly. Service very good. Mexican food didn't stand out above the rest places. Needed more seasoning a bit bland. Wife not high on margarita. Would return, but not high on list. Best part was staff and decor.

I had the seasoned rib-eye steak and it was excellent. Others had the carne asada and other more traditional dishes and they were also very good! It was a Thursday night so fairly quiet. Had a great time and will return.

Came in strictly for the $10 fajitas. This was an unusual experience in that the service was slow and half the food was bland.
The service: was seated quickly and given chips and salsa. It was such a long time from being seated to getting our drink order, that I actually called the restaurant and asked for our wait staff. The staff that did arrive was friendly and personable, like usual.
The food: we got the combination fajitas. The steak was very tasty, as expected, but the chicken was bland. It tasted like there wasn't any seasoning applied to the chicken at all...which was weird since grill marks could be seen on the chicken strips, so it should have at least tasted grilled.
It wasn't just my chicken, but my eating companions as well. An unusual experience from a restaurant that, to me, is synonmous with flavor

Not sure what happened on Saturday night but this was the worst experience we have ever had at Cantina Laredo. We have been frequent diners and will not be back for a long time. Wait time for table was twice what they said when we checked-in. Food took an hour and a half to arrive at the table. And to top it off, our favorite dessert of brownie with cinnamon ice cream was so stale that it crumbled when we used our forks to get a bite. Again not sure what was going on.

We are frequent customers of this restaurant but had the worst experience this evening. The menu has changed since our last visit, and the quality of the food has declined along with the drinks. Our waiter Tyler was busy, and our food took forever to come out and when it did, 3 of our 4 dinners were cold. He didn't clear our plates or ask if we wanted take home boxes. No apology for the delay or the cold food. Really disappointed in our go to place for higher quality Mexican food. We won't be back.

Good Ambience and overall nice place for get together. Wait staff was excellent. Did not like the drinks ( watered down and just not prepared right) and limited not so appealing vegetarian options. Food was of ok quality compared to the price.

Made reservations and got to the restaurant and was seated at the tables near the bar - not a good place to talk because of the noise level. Was greeted by our server and put our drink and appetizer order in. We got our cheese appetizer, no chips and salsa and had to ask where the chips were at. The waiter has to tell someone to bring us chips and the cheese sauce had skimmed over by the time we got our chips (about 10 minutes after we arrived - tables around us that came in after us got chips). I ran out of water and had to ask for water - the waiter did not come over but once after the food arrived. My cousin and I were celebrating our birthdays and planned to sit and talk but they never cleared the table - so we left so we could talk without dishes on our table.

Super delicious Mexican food and amazing margaritas! The top shelf guacamole and queso are the best. I've tried several entree items and am never disappointed. The La Bandera is my favorite margarita. Love this place!

I chose Cantina Laredo for a special birthday meal for my husband. We dined there about 2 months ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. This time we were very disappointed in everything about this restaurant. The food was bland and overcooked, the service was nothing special (the waitress even brought us a bowl of broken tortilla chips) . It seemed nothing like we remember the from the first visit. There is no reason to ever go back there or recommend it to anyone.

Didn't get checked in on open table. Waited forever for waitress to appear. She was very nice but very new. Brought app with no drinks yet. Waited over 15 minutes for water. Ordered a beef hard taco and a steak soft taco but got two ground beef
Told waitress wasn't correct wanted steak and she says the kitchen said it was the same thing??? I said no, I get this all the time. Took about 15 more minutes to bring a steak taco that was nothing like I've gotten in the past. Tiny and had stuff on it not normal. We go here slot and usually very good but this night was off

Cantina Laredo is your upscale alternative to local Mexican dining. The food is more like what you would find in actual nice restaurants in Mexico. The drinks are tasty and creative. The enchiladas are delicious! Try to book a table in Moe's section. He's wonderfully friendly and funny.

We don't get up to Polaris very often but when we do we have dinner here. This visit was terrible. We were seated near the bar another party that arrived after us was walked to the other side. We waited for 25 minutes for a server to arrive. It seemed to never really get better.

Excellent Food, drinks and Service. Very nice atmosphere. Tableside Guac was excellent. Loved it. We were there for my daughter's and my girlfriend's birthday and they made this special dinner very memorable. Thank You!!

We have been to the Cantina Laredo in Chicago & its menu seemed much more upscale. Our food in Columbus was OK but the service really lacked. Our waiter took a long time to come to our table to take a drink order & even complained to us he had too many tables to wait. He seemed very stressed & in a bad mood. He lightened up later. The food was OK but could have been better. Table-side guacamole was excellent. Margarita was like water with flavoring. Not worth the money at all & it was a Petron margarita.

Cantina Laredo had a wonderfully comfortable, yet upscale, ambiance. The Mexican cuisine was superb. Big winners included the Chicken Mole Enchilada's and Chicken Enchilada's with cream sauce. Our guests also very much enjoyed the outstanding guacamole, the chicken taco's and, of course, the warm chocolate cake filled with warm chocolate sauce and topped with delicious vanilla bean ice cream! We also love your on line promotions and what you do for our Veterans on Veterans Day.

First time here. I wanted Mexican, but somewhere different. Food was very good, except queso and guacamole very bland. Margaritas mostly watery and flavorless. Best is the Conco Rita (highly recommend). Service attentive and friendly. Lots of room around tables. Nice decor. I will go back.
