Cantina Laredo - Chicago
Great spot for a group brunch or dinner, ton of space and great lighting, delicious food and not too loud to have a great conversation
The Food was delicious. Not amazing good but nothing wrong thus 4⭐️. The service was great very attentive. The place was loud not very intimate but still a very good dining experience would happily return.
Oh and the cocktails were good too.
Food was absolutely amazing!!! Our server was beyond slow and had no personality. She almost seemed inconvenienced to be serving us. Other than that the food and drinks were so so so good
GREAT FROZEN MARGARITAS and good variety of tequilas for on the rocks! Good homemade chips and salsa. Loved the Tacos al Pastor
Wonderful food and service
Very friendly, great atmosphere and very good food! Loved the guacamole!
We went here for Father's Day brunch. Cantina Laredo has a great brunch and it's also a great value. A complimentary Bloody Mary is included in the adults brunch.
I always stop by for the ultra fresh quac, queso and the Cabo Flips! The steak tacos are fantastic as well.
The food was excellent; best salsa I have had. My waiter, Oscar, was extremely pleasant and attentive. The manager was making sure the entire restaurant was running well. I was greeted warmly at the desk. I would definitely return!
Had the most wonderful experience tonight at Cantina Laredo. The food is stellar! Excellent menu, ambience, and service! Highly recommend!
Great food. Great service. We had a group of 7. We received our drinks and food in a timely manner.
Cantina is always a great time. Full of energy and excellent food. It had been awhile since I had dined here and was disappointed to see the Guacamole was no longer prepared table side. But the guacamole was as tasty as always.
Overall great food and margaritas! Also comparatively cheaper than other Mexican restaurants downtown which was also great!
Great service. Wonderful evening.
The food was excellent.
Food was excellent. The service was excellent and friendly. First time and will definately return. Already raved about it.
Our experience was to say nothing that was expected. From the beginning: seated promptly at our time indicated, was the only good thing of this restaurant. Server not informed of what was offered if any specials. Asked for water and our drink order was taken after 15 minutes of waiting after being seated. Another 10 minutes went by or so and our waiter came to take our appetizer Order and still no water or adult beverages. Appetizers came out and again asked for water and our beverages. Our entrée Order was taken. Our entree’s came to the table however it was not what we ordered. It was taken back to the kitchen and food just started being placed on our table and it was food we did not order. Again no beverages. We asked for the manager and then our drinks show up and then the manager. Must say that gentlemen listened as he was told all that we experienced. Not once did he down play our experience, and made right by what was done, that I will say was very professional of him.
In my profession I’m asked for places to dine in the Chicago downtown area, and without reservation I can say where not to go. Cantina Laredo
Food portions extremely small. Kids meal was very spicy. Value just not there. Will not be returning.
Good Sevice and good food. Server( Carlos) well informed and a great asset to the establishment.
Poor service. Seems that the server had no interest in serving our table. Food never came out for one guest and multiple efforts to bring us someone else’s order. Over charged us and had to wait more time for it to be fixed. We will not be returning.
The guacamole was so good.. omg the dinner was great as well.. we were referred to the restaurant overall very pleasant...
Very nice space. Busy but not too noisy for conversation on a Saturday night. Ceviche of the day could have been better; fish tacos were good but needed more sauce. Service was impeccable.
I made reservation for my son and I for Friday, May 31 at 7 pm and we were sat at a table in the back room, the party room area. We were sitting by ourselves. I requested to be seated in the main seating area to enjoy the whole restaurant ambience, but was denied. Also, my hostess wasn't able to locate my reservation in the system when I arrived. It was all frustrating to me. The food was very good.
I have been there religiously every year during my visit to Chicago. The place is now slowly loosing it’s soul. There are much better places for Mexican food. Noisy, busy, more like an industrial cantine actually
Great wait service. A little loud for dinner. Food was excellent. Highly affordable.
Delicious margaritas and chicken mole enchiladas.
Food was good, but the service was terrible. Our server had a terrible attitude and didn’t seem to care. Didn’t check on us for drink refills, she didn’t check on us after food was dropped off. We had to flag down someone else to tell them one of our entrees was wrong. She seemed put out that she even had to bring us our check. I get it’s a holiday and people don’t want to be at work, but if you are going to act like that, find a different job. I highly doubt we will go back there, too many good restaurants in river north with better service.
The server was terrible. The service was too slow. The food was ok. We ate quac and chips :)
welcoming atmosphere! GREAT food and a fair wait time for service!
Unfortunately we had a horrible service experience. This place was recommended during our visit and the server did not want to be bothered. Did not get refills, did not order additional margaritas because couldn't get our server and by the time she came by we no longer wanted to spend any more time there. The food was good, except they do not have a traditional cheese dip. Our order also came out wrong, but they did fix that right away. Would not give it a second try.
Size of meals were perfect. Great fresh flavour and presentation
Everything was perfect! The food, the service, the ambiance! Thank you.
The service was prompt till we were approaching dessert.
But we were there for my brother’s bday and the server was bringing a treat so I think I was just anxious about timing.
They did so well bringing us chips and salsa (bigger cups for these please) but other than that it was a great family dinner. Always a good meal at CL.
Food was average at best long wait for food and when it arrived it was cold . Extremely slow service from drinks to getting the check . Looked to be short staffed unlikely to return
The food and service were excellent! We will be back!!
Great food & service!
Very modern decor, upscale Mexican. Fast initial drink & food service, then sporadic especially for additional drinks & the check. Fajitas were delicious.
We sat at our table for an hour after we ordered and they never brought out our entrees.
We had a wonderful Mother’s Day brunch here! Service was excellent and our food was top-notch. We will definitely be back.
Great go-to for elevated Mexican. Always enjoy their margaritas and guacamole!!
