Chris our waiter was terrific- when my husband stated he had celiac disease, he knew immediate that is was a gluten allergy and suggested multiple items on the menu.

Great atmosphere, especially the outside tables. The bartender accommodated a special drink request. and the waitress moved us when we were concerned about impending rain on the way. This was a anniversary dinner and our waitress surprised us with a complimentary dessert, a nice touch.

Great ambiance, food and service. Kitchen was closing within 20 mins of arrival but the staff was very accommodating. Ordered the dry herb seasoned wings - delicious; chicken the tinga tacos - good; chipotle chicken burrito- excellent. Great cocktails as well.

The food and service were great, we just felt that there should’ve been more distance between tables for indoor seating. It was a little too close for “Corona-comfort”!!!

Our server, McCartney, was outstanding. The drinks were good, and the crispy brussel sprout appetizer (not especially Mexican) was very good. My wife really enjoyed her Ahi Tuna salad. It was taco Tuesday, so I thought I'd try a few tacos. They were small, but that was fine, as I wanted to be sure and leave room to try a dessert. I ordered one Chicken Tinga (quite good)m, and 2 Carne Asada tacos. This is where my one disappointment with the food came in. The steak in the tacos was cold, not particularly tender, and quite flavorless. Carne asada should have a great deal of flavor if marinated properly, but there was no hint of flavor in this meat whatsoever. The fact that it was cold kind of added insult to injury. The churros were enjoyable. Overall, quite good save for the carne asada tacos. I will try something different next time.

Loved my Chicken Mole Enchilada!
The midnight margarita was delicious and a nice change from the usual.
We sat outside with our dog who was allowed. My husband enjoyed his fajitas.

Visited twice. Second time better than the first (food wise). Service and ambience have been solid both times, though - same with the drinks. Worth considering, though “mixed” reviews at the moment.

All as always was great. My only comment was that when we arrived we would told the table was just inside and it would be 10-15 minutes. After about 20 minutes we asked if we could sit at the available table outside that was for 2 as our reservation was for. After the sever check we were seated at that table. Didn’t understand why we needed to ask for that table when it was available about 10 minutes and matched our reservation. Again, our lunch was great.

We were properly greeted and timely seated. Restaurant did a very good job distancing everyone during this pandemic. Shrimp cerviche was good. Our enchiladas were very good as well. The only thing I would have like to know beforehand was that the enchiladas seemed to be fried which I was not expecting.

Got the taco salad. I asked for steak and got chicken. Love the steak but didn't ask waitress to correct order and didn't love the chicken. So partly my fault for not asking to change to correct meal. Outdoor space is great.

My wife and I were in town for the night and she chose the Cantina. She had Been there before for Margaritas. She was happy with her previous experience there, so we thought we would try it for dinner. The drinks were okay, but the food was a big disappointment. Very little flavor for a Mexican restaurant. I was hoping for a nice Mexican meal with lots of spice. My wife was also very disappointed. In fact we did not bring our left over dinners home with us. We won’t return in the future. I would advise finding a chef who can create More creative dishes with flavor and spice.

The restaurant clearly abides by all of the CDC and NY State guidelines and, at the same time, offers an attractive environment for dining. The service was prompt, efficient and friendly. My wife and I had enchiladas de mole and avocado tacos. We were both pleased with our choices. It was nice to see downtown Saratoga alive again.

Staff could be a little friendlier and less pretentious, and in the midst of COVID maybe don’t reuse the same disgusting rag to wipe down the tables and chairs over and over again? Sort of defeats the purpose. Otherwise, the drinks were good as was the food, but they definitely need more entree options for the no-meat crowd. It is 2020, after all.

Great food, friendly service - fair pricing. We went for lunch as sat outside due to COVID. We did not feel rushed, everything was clean, and the restaurant was following all guidelines. Server was delightful, would definitely recommend.
