Cantina Laredo - Columbus Ratings and Reviews
The restaurant was practically empty and service was incredibly slow. Had to ask several times for drink refills. We were a party of six and everyone's food came out at different times. There were also two mistakes that had to be sent back. Would not go back.
The waiter couldn't describe the fish dishes, and didn't go check on it. Just shrugged off his lack of knowledge. The server dropped one of our meals near another table and it crashed onto the floor and splattered their purses and legs . We saw it all but no one acknowledged it initially. They just delivered the rest of our meals then the waiter came over nonchalantly to say "yeah they dropped your meal over there". My meal was 15 min behind everyone else at my table since they had to remake mahi tacos.
Disappointed all around and they only comped the $15 fish tacos on a $200 ticket. No class or professionalism demonstrated throughout the night. Huge downgrade in service from the last few years. Won't be back probably.
My wife had been previously for a Christmas party and couldn't stop raving about the steak fajitas. She wanted to go back for her birthday, and I was happy to accommodate her ;) The fajitas were indeed amazing, and the service, atmosphere, and friendliness of the staff were all great as well. Will definitely be back.
Service wasnt all there tonight. Usually good food and service. Think the guy was new. Almost mixed the advocado sticker into the guacamole, then he didnt bring us chips for 10+ mins, had to ask a bus-boy, forgot sour cream twice. My drink was always empty, come on, this is where you make your money.
Friends from out of town often drive down to go here, but there are two good Mexican restaurants near us. This week we had company and decided to drive out to try. Chips were thin and fresh and dips were most unusual (one sweet and one hot (temp.) and spicy.) but looked the same, All of us loved combo plates which were very tasty. One split 1-2 was on the tacos (two of us do not like hard tacos and one loved them). Waiter (Bryce) was extremely personable (we are older and do not expect that kind of communication) and fun. We will go back and ask for him. You can enter from the back door (no steps) right near the parking and not have to meander through the court yards around it.
Overall our experience was OK
We've been to this restaurant many times and our other experiences have been better
It just felt like they were not as cohesive as they normally are
There had been a very large party there before us and things were pretty messed up when we got there and it just seemed like they didn't have time to do adequate cleaning up the area around the tables
We indicated on open table that we would like a certain server and were surprised when our request was not honored. When ordering our server Morgan asked us to point to the items because she did not know the menu. We saw our food go by and then sit outside on the patio for 5 minutes because the food runner did not know table numbers. The food was excellent my boyfriend had the carne asada and i had the carne asada with shrimp. Not even halfway through our meal the server said you guys ready for the check? We had planned on ordering dessert and she never cleared the table and left dirty plates all over when finally another server came and asked if we'd like boxes. Service left much to be desired but the food was exceptional.
We are regulars at this location and usually this is a five star experience. This time was awful. The server was new but it took forever to get our order taken and even longer for our food to come. Order was not eight when we finally got our food. New server was very apologetic however this is not what we have come to expect from an otherwise great place.
Are used to go here all the time, and as usual the food was wonderful. However even though there were very few people in the restaurant service was incredibly slow, and we had a few things we ordered that didn't ever make it out. I'd still go back, but it's probably on probation and my rotation.
They graciously gave us the private dining room! Service was a little slow, but we were there for a long time. Everyone loved their food! Only odd thing was when the chef walked out with a bowl of soup and said to one guest, we don't have what you ordered, so you can have this instead. No asking her.
We were seated before are reservation time and the food was excellent. They got our drinks and gave us chips & salsa quickly but then we had to wait 30 minutes to order our food. Also we had several different people waiting on us so not sure who our actual server was.
It was a family event for a birthday and father's day. We had a semi private room with patio access, perfect. Our waiter, Johnny, was very personable, efficient and attentive , just what you want of a waiter. And by the way, the food and drinks were very good.
I booked this restaurant to celebrate a very special birthday and I was very disappointed. First of all, when I made the reservation I called and asked that since I was bringing a large party if I could be seated in a separate "occasion" room if they had one, they told me that they did have a room for such occasions and that they would book it for me. They did not and we were seated in regular seating in the middle of the restaurant. The service was TERRIBLE and it was not crowded. My husband had to go up to the host at the front of the restaurant to try to get our waiter to serve us because we had sat there for 30 minutes without our waiter/waitress coming over to get our drinks. They really made what was supposed to be a special occasion really stressful because I wanted to have my guests have an enjoyable evening and I was stressed out because it was taking an insane amount of time to get drinks, food, any service, etc. In addition they got one of the orders wrong so we all had to sit and stare at one another while they redid one person's food. I will not be coming here again, which is a shame because the food is generally good.
My wife and I stopped by for dinner at the last minute. We got a reservation immediately so not sure if they aren't busy or we just picked a slow weekend. Food came out pretty fast and the staff was attentive to our needs. The waiter did lack knowledge on the dish when I asked him what it was. I ended up not trying something different and got the Dinner carnitas plate. I would go back another time to try out the drinks but that's about it. Food wasn't something that I would go out of my way to visit and eat again.
Food was great! Service was horrible!!
Took forever for a server to come to our table and then he never checked on us. We ended up taking our bill to the bar to pay because he never came back. And even then it still took entirely too long for the bartender to ring us up. Disappointing because the food is so good, but the service makes me not want to go back.
Service was nonexistent (and that went for every table around us)...our waitress did not listen to what was ordered ( brought wrong beer)....she kept disappearing for long periods of time...our queso was cold before we could get chips. Drinks were not refilled in a timely manner....very disappointing
The service was good, but the server couldn't undo what came out of the kitchen. We had table for 8, and 4 of the meals came out wrong. Overall food quality was poor, manager intervention was poor and the server did his best, but in the end it's our last time at this restaurant.
