Sort of Disappointed

 
 (Kansas City)·Dined on September 19, 2015

We had a reservation and seated right-away. The server seemed very impatient. There was no discussion of what came with the order or the difference in the "street" verse "dinner" taco. After one drink order, our food arrived and then the check. We had to re-open the check to get a second drink. Too much hassle for okay food. Not welcoming at all!!!

Poor service and mediocre food

We went here for Cinco de Mayo and had margaritas and tacos. The place was not busy and it took 15 minutes to get out first margaritas, which tasted like they forgot the tequila. The guacamole was way too garlicy and the tacos were just mediocre. The waitress was the worst waitress I have ever had and was so slow. This restaurant is close to my house, so I may return just because of the convenience, but if the same waitress tries to serve me, I will leave.

Folks - Check this place out! It's unique and not your average Mexican Food restaurant. A great place to meet friends for drinks, in this open air environment. The ambiance is casually super! I absolutely fell in love with the shrimp tacos!

My teenage daughters and I decided to try this restaurant after walking around and had a great experience. The staff was super nice and the food was amazing. I am so glad we decided to try this place.

Shocked!

 
 (Kansas City)·Dined on January 10, 2015

This was a great little find! Wonderful Blood Orange Margarita. I had the Chipotle Garlic Grilled shrimp tacos, with cilantro rice. We also had a spicy Guacamole as an appetizer, and had the Dulche de leche ice cream with sea salt and fresh blackberries... YUM! I was very pleased with the food and drink. The service was a little slow, even with my group being the only patrons in the place. I was shocked that the restaurant was "dead" at 6:30pm on a Friday night. However, around 10pm, the lights changed, the music cranked, and people began to flow! My understanding is that the menu is new, so you should check it out. They have a happy hour from 4-7! GO and try that Blood Orange Margarita! My only "gripe" in in terms of ambiance. The seats in the booths were ripped. I'm hoping they get those fixed or replaced, because the food was fantastic.

Great service, poor food

 
 (Kansas City)·Dined on October 18, 2014

We went for an early dinner so the restaurant was not busy at all. The staff was great and when we asked to be seated at a particular table, they were willing to accommodate us. The food however, was not the greatest. For the price, I had expected a better Mexican burrito than I received. It was similar to a fast food burrito, such as Chipotle or Freebird, but not the kind of quality I would expect at a restaurant with servers. I understand this is more of a late night bar, so if that is the type of food you are wanting, then it does qualify. However, we were only going for the dinner, not the bar atmosphere and that is why we went early. The ambiance of this place was very nice as well.

I was very impressed with Tengo Sed. I was initially concerned because of previous bad reviews on Yelp and Urban Spoon, but the restaurant was reopened in May 2014 and we had a great experience. The service was fantastic- you could tell the staff had been carefully trained to be service oriented. They were EXREMELY accommodating of my hatred of cilantro. The food was very good, especially the rib eye fajitas. I recommend.
