Cantina Laredo - Nashville Ratings and Reviews

First, let me start with the service… Kyle, our server, was great, so this review does not reflect on him. In the five years that I've been going to Cantina Laredo, this by far was the worst meal that I've ever had there, and it was the exact same thing I've ordered at least twice before. My date's meal was also terrible. Like my entre, it had no flavor, limited ingredients, and was just poorly made. The top shelf margaritas that we ordered were also terrible. They were too sweet, and there was no hint of tequila in them. This location has really gone downhill in the last year, and I won't be returning anytime soon.

We have dined at Cantina Laredo many times and had incredible service and food. However, last evening was the exception our waitress Maria was not attentive and in a hurry the entire evening. Our order was incorrect and she blamed us when she got it wrong. I think she may need additional training and thee food was not good.

Unfortunately our experience was very poor. We had a reservation but really didn't need one as it was not crowded at all. No one waited on us for at least 20 mins and our waiter was changed twice after that. We literally did not get a glass of water we asked for till we were getting our checks and the hostess had to bring it. We thought we were on a hidden game show.

We were a party of 8 and made reservations for 6:00 on a Saturday night. The restaurant was not busy at that time however our cocktails took a long time. We ordered the table side guacamole which was fantastic. I ordered the Avocado and Artichoke Enchlidas which were also fantastic except I found a long black hair inside. They did take it off the bill but a manager never came over.
Our server was not attentive and failed ...
Our server was not attentive and failed to get our order correct and then argued that she was right. In the last 3 years, we've eaten at the restaurant many times (maybe 10-12) and have seen a steady decline in service and food quality over the last year +. Will most likely be our last time at Cantina Laredo as we have other choices in the area that we will begin to explore.

We got there 15 minutes early for our 5:30 reservation for 10 people. There were maybe, 4 other tables in the entire restaurant seated, and we still didn't sit down until 5:35. There was zero urgency or hospitality to get our dinner started.

Arrived on time for our reservations; we were quickly seated. Service and attendance were timely and often enough to be helpful, but not to be bothersome. Server was well informed of drinks, favorites and dish preparation. Food was served hot and in timely manner. The food was good, but not outstanding enough for us to drive downtown again. The cuisine is described as fancy or modern Mexican. I'd rather have authentic Mexican in a dive or an upscale dinner than this as it was good, but not memorable.
When I made the reservation via OpenTab ...
When I made the reservation via OpenTable, I specifically requested a leisurely, non-rushed lunch and a male server (so my lunch guest would not be distracted by a woman). We were seated right next to two other tables when the place was empty and given the only female server working. We felt pressured to place our food order quickly and before our entrees arrived I overheard our server tell the next table she was done for the day and they could stay as long as they liked after paying the bill. I stopped her and told her should could transfer our table to another server so we could take our time but she said no and told us we could stay as long as we liked after paying the bill. The entrees came to the table very quick and right after we started eating the server asked if we'd be interested in dessert. She wanted to present the dessert tray immediately before we were even a quarter way through our entrees. She removed my guest's plate before he was even finished and tried to remove mine but I stopped her and said I'd like to finish. She seemed quite annoyed at me by this point so I just asked for the check as she obviously wanted to leave but wanted her tip first. We usually have dessert and drinks after eating, but it was not to be sine we were made to feel so uncomfortable in keeping our server. After paying the bill we went to the bar for drinks and was finally treated like a welcomed guest. Side note: the share plate on top of the stack sitting on the table was crusted with old food, the sugar caddy on the table was equally filthy, and the bowl of complimentary chips was crusted with filth on the outside too. The food was decent but overshadowed by the dismissal of my simple dining requests. I really appreciated the bartender afterwords but his graciousness did not make up for how rude we were treated before leaving the table and sitting at the bar. Far too many great places in Nashville to ever go back, sadly.

Had a business dinner at Cantina Laredo last week and the food was just OK. It took almost 20 minutes after we ordered our drinks to receive them and payed premium price for a margarita that you could taste more mix than tequila. Our server was slow and not friendly. Will not be going back.
