Busy because of our Keller Williams Conference going on at the Convention Center but expected. Wait staff was amazing and the food was delicious! Wishing we had eaten here sooner and we would have come back again!

food was fresh and tasty. servers were pleasant and understood we were under a time crunch.
great place to grab lunch near the convention center that actually accepts reservations. Just make sure you let the hostess know and don't wait in the long line for walkins or you will have a longer wait for your reservation.

Feeding a volleyball team before a game. 3 of us each reserved a table of 10. Service was adequate, slow, no drink refills, had to ask for menus. I ordered the kale salad which was fine. I added shrimp which was fine but the few small shrimp on my plate wasn’t worth the extra charge. Server accommodated separate tabs thankfully. My daughter ordered chicken enchiladas with sour cream sauce. The sour cream sauce was just a thick sheet of sour cream covering her food. Most of our party thought their food was way too greasy. Servers added 20% gratuity to our bills.

Restaurant was kept very cold. Waiter was helpful. Ceviche wasn't my favorite, and I'm a huge Ceviche fan. Probably won't come back.

Adequate. Been going to Herreras since it was in the house on Maple. I’ll stick to the Sylvan location in the future. There are better “contemporary” Mexican food places around

Service was poor. Waited 15 minutes before our waitress came. Didn’t see her for long periods of time while we were there, and the restaurant wasn’t even packed. Took forever for drinks to come out and we were there for over an hour before we even got to order food. Tacos were great even though it took over 30 minutes to get them. Queso wasn’t very good. Will not be returning to this restaurant.

It was an awful service. The staff was rude, it took a while for them to ask for our drinks. Then, the bartender came to take our orders at the table, and asked us to ask both drinks and meals at the same time. The guy was very rude.

It took another while for getting our drinks, the margaritas were served in a highball glass, and one person in our group, who order a sparkling wine, got it served in a glass!.

After an hour or so, we asked for our orders, one person after another send us to somebody else, until finally the bartender came to our table and figure out that the order was never placed.

They cooked our order so quickly (their cooking are is behind a transparent glass), that it was like the put the food in a microwave. Finally, they did not charged us for the food, albeit it tasted horrible. We never complained about the food thought, we just wanted to get the check and get out of there

It took another while for us to pay the check, I had to go to the bartender to pay my bill.

It is very odd, and it is very clear that whoever owns the restaurant is not taking care of it. Every restaurant around was packed, this was the only one with availability, it was half full, now we know why!

Terrible experience.

Food and service was great. We went for lunch two days in a two!! Booth seating is better than the chairs. Seat is short so if you are taller than 5’ you will feel like you are sitting on a child’s chair. Other than that it was fabulous!!

Overall it was good. The only disappointment was my opentable reservation was not available when we arrived. They wanted to seat our party of 6 at 2 different tables when we are a party of 6 that wanted to sit together. We ended having to be seated at 2 tables. I use opentable to know if there is availability ahead of time.

It was Valentine’s Day dinner and we arrived on-time to our reservations which didn’t matter because the place was pretty slow upon our arrival. We sat down pretty quickly and got some chips and salsa, but it took us 15-ish minutes after sitting down to get a waiter because someone finally noticed that we hadn’t been helped. Thank God for the wonderful waitress we ended up getting because she turned it around for us or else this would’ve been a terrible experience and also, the free dessert at the end helped.

The green house margarita sucked. Other than that food was great and service amazing. Music was spot on. The only problem is the bar crew, very slow and drinks were disappointing.

If you’re staying at the Dallas Omni, Café Herrera is the best place for a quick meal at the bar (say hi to Nina) or a casual evening meal, decent tequila selection and some excellent Mexican food. A couple of my faves are the queso fundido, enchiladas with an excellent mole sauce, fajitas and the chimichanga.

Food tastes great. The service was friendly and fast. My drink was very good too. The menu had several good choices for my party including a very picky plain food eater, a vegetarian and 2 who love spicy hot. We were all happy.

Ate here tonight while vacationing in Dallas. Good location near the sights. Food was excellent, prices were reasonable. Nice atmosphere. Only very minor complaint was that the service was a little too good- it felt a bit rushed perhaps because it was a Sunday night ( although it was only 7:00).

The food was most excellent! Have to say we were disappointed though that we had to wait over 30 minutes for a reservation that was made months in advance. And with that our party had to be separated and seated at different tables. Wait staff seemed to be a bit overwhelmed and we had to snag a server in order to get our lunch order placed.

We went there for brunch and the food and service for a Tex-Mex restaurant in Dallas, Texas were average - had worse but definitely had better. They ran out of cream for their coffee (a bit odd when they are serving brunch), but the food itself was decent. It's location right next to the Omni though makes it a viable option for a quick meal if you are staying at the Omni or another nearby hotel.

It was delightful. Party of 8 for Fathers Day, excellent service, food was good, served with perfect timing and very pretty. The overall atmosphere was cheerful with great ambiance. Our server was excellent. Not overly attentive as some tend to be, but removed dishes and refilled beverages perfectly. Never felt rushed even though we realized they had closed and we’re still taking great care of us. highly recommend
