    After 45 minutes we had not received our food or even our drink order. We watched the bartender make many flight of margaritas that looked great. We gave up and left!

    We had high hopes for a great experience, knowing Cantena la Redo was a national chain in a nice neighborhood. However, the food was marginal at best and we were seated near the restroom which had an unfortunate incident occur. We had to walk to the other end of the room to wait for our check, the stench was so bad. Not going back.

    Cantina Laredo - ClaytonResponded 2 days agoSaturday night was very unfortunate and i am very sorry you were here when our plumbing issue occurred. In time, if you choose to give us another chance, please just let me know and we will help you have a great time, barring any unforeseen circumstances.

    Ignored my allergy on both appetizers and entree even after reminding on the appetizer and when ordering. No attempt to correct.

I do not know what transpired on your visit but am sorry that the situation was not resolved while you were here.

    The food was very good. I had the lunch fajitas, and the spice level was on point. Did not care for the rice. Portions were large, especially for lunch. The issue was the service — we waited a very long time to place our order and a longer time to get our bill. The waitress was no where to be found.

    Cantina Laredo - ClaytonResponded on December 3, 2022Thank you for the insight. We will keep working to get our service to match the food!

    The service was absolutely AWFUL. Food was mediocre. We had to walk to the bar to pay because we hadn’t seen our server in over 30 minutes & they were not busy at all- maybe 8 tables in the entire restaurant. Then the server had the nerve to run out of the restaurant screaming that we didn’t pay. We will NOT go back.

    The food was delicious! When our server did come to the table she was very friendly and knowledgeable. However we did not see her as often as a customer would deem reasonable. The restaurant was not busy. We were one of 3 tables inside the dining room (patio was full but she was not waiting tables on the patio) and we had to wait a while to even order a second round of drinks. Disappointing as this is a great place, but we were not a priority for our server. When she brought the check over and we were ready to pay, that’s when she was the most attentive.

    Loved dining at Cantina Laredo this weekend! The noise level was perfect, the ambience on point - we requested a seat with a "view" and were able to take in the natural sunlight from the large windows. The food was warm and yummy - the chips perfectly toasted, and our server was pleasant. Thanks for a great time!

    We have been there before. Food use to be good but this time food was not fresh. We ordered Chicken fajitas, chicken was cold and dried up, tortilla were cold as if they took it out of the refrigerator. Over all quality was poor. Waiter was very nice he tried his best to provide us good service.

    My wife and I are from Arizona and as such know what great Mexican/Latin American food is. I had the Puerto Vallarta dish and my wife had beef and chicken fajitas. The quality of the meat was excellent and it was seasoned to perfection. The smoked chipotle salsa was very good and the sides such as beans and rice were delicious. Our waiter, Dania, was utterly outstanding. She was very attentive, professional, and very polite. My wife and I are extremely hard to please when it comes to Mexican food in St. Louis. I can assure you that we will be frequenting Cantina Laredo for the great tasting food and the very excellent service.
