It was fair just disappointing that they did not have sugar free syrup.

One of the best bang for your buck brunches in Houston, so many choices, it used to be even bigger but even with it being scaled back there are so many choices. Moderate food but a great deal.

This was my first visit in quite a while. All of the food seemed quite spicy, even the guacamole. The service was very good. It was still a fun time.

I had heard many times about this bar. Finally when we were able to come it felt just right. A neighborhood place that is comfortable, has good food, good drinks and feels like home.
We will return!

We came for Houston Restaurant Weeks but were told the computer wasn’t working so they didn’t have that menu available, which was disappointing.

Saw the restaurant week menu advertised on local news station. Made a reservation and drove across town. They did not offer us the restaurant week menu. When we asked for it, someone else came over and said they were not offering it because of an “IT problem “. Super disappointed. Could have stayed local to our house and eaten same stuff.

Extremely loud. Our poor sever was running all across the restaurant. Took forever to get drinks and had to cancel our second round because it NEVER came. Asked for to go boxes when our food came out. Wasn’t the servers fault, however the bartenders were literally sitting at the bar chatting it up like they had no jobs to do.

Made a 7pm reservation for Saturday night dinner. The restaurant was obviously very busy (understaffed?) with many large parties. Manager was very friendly and sat us immediately. Chips came out quickly. Waited 15 mins for anyone to come up to our table. I asked manager who was our server. She took our drink orders. Waited a total of 45 minutes with no servers coming to our table. The food looked great! Shame we weren't able to try it. Go on a weeknight or get an early dinner and I believe the service will be better.

I used to love the Cadillac but it was different this time. The menu is very limited and the selection is very typical like the cheap dishes offered in the cheaper restaurants. I am so disappointed and I miss the whole ambiance and food selection. Unfortunately I can’t see myself returning as there are so many better restaurants available.

You accepted my reservation for 2:00 and their brunch was over- cold and hard. Terrible experience with our visiting guest.

Polite at entry. New waiter only on job one week. Nice happy hour $5.00 house margaritas until 7 pm. Service was slow. I had to ask for a discount as my beef fahita meat was burned. Gave me $6.50 off.

Waiter ended up being very good but we sat for 15 minutes without water or menus and had to ask the hostess if we had anyone serving our table. Food took over 45 minutes to come to our table after we finally ordered. We enjoyed our meals but wouldn’t go back based on long wait for service and food especially since we were there at 5:30 in the afternoon which is not a busy time

Food was excellent but the service time was unacceptable. It took 30mins to get a margarita and a beer. The food took 45mins and there was not many people eating dinner. Maybe next time I will experience better service.

You guys shouldn’t take reservations on cinco de Mayo if you aren’t going to honor them. Defeats the purpose…. We won’t be returning.

The seating was great. The flour tortillas were hard. The jumbo shrimp were too small and to pay for the jumbo price. One of my guest asked for a large margarita and the waiter says if you get a large you will pay double price for a regular price. I don’t think that was relevant.

While the food was good and our server was excellent, I really did not feel safe while dining in the restaurant. The bartender never had her mask up over her nose and mouth and many of the tables were too close for social distancing. Literally a table of six was sat adjacent to our table where I had to move my chair just for them to squeeze in.

I was disappointed in the staffing. It was national Margarita Day and there was only one server who was covering 7-8 tables. He absolutely was busting his butt to keep up, but couldn’t always be on top of things. I hope others tipped him well like we did.

My husband and I went for a night out. We shared a pitcher of margaritas, sounds like a whole lot more than it actually is, but they were good. The food was excellent. I absolutely love their salsas. It wasn’t crowded, and we were told to sit anywhere so we picked the private room at the front. We were the only ones in the rooms. We enjoyed ourselves.

I had all but given up on the idea of dining during the time of Coronavirus, but Cadillac Bar advertised their social distancing policy and offered safe dining spaces for those who made reservations. I took a chance, made a reservation and determined that if I didn't feel comfortable once I arrived, I would order take-out and wait in my car. When my friend and I arrived, we were whisked away to a table in a separate space that had exactly zero other diners. Our servers (one was a trainee) wore their masks properly the entire time, our food came out quickly and was pretty good. The only thing I wasn't a fan of was the queso dip, too thick for my liking, more like melted cheese than an actual dip. Sangria margarita was just right, loved the tamales!
