Sorry, to say my birthday experience was ruined by the waitress. She was rude, and for some reason not attentive to our needs. Some of the meals were not prepared well, and it took it a long time to be brought to the table. I still enjoyed the tacos and chips with salsa.

this is the second time that we have been to Huerto where we have had the wrong food served. Last time, I asked for vegetarian and they gave me chicken. They corrected it, brought vegetarian, but it was cold! They had to do it again.

This visit we had a similar experience. I asked for mahi-mahi tacos with black beans and no rice. The tacos came very small, had refried beans and rice. The server, who was very lovely, apologized and brought it the again correctly.

The only redeemable parts of the meal were: chips, guacamole, and the server!

While the service was not the fastest our waitress was very kind and made sure that we received everything we asked for. The food was very good and seemed to be on the authentic side, but seemed a bit pricey for tacos. The drink selection and choice of tequila was very impressive, even for my girlfriend who is a tequila aficionado. We will be back again to try a few more of the selections off the menu

Worst dinning experience. They water down tequila, no clue about how to serve a tequila. Long wait for drinks, long wait for food, food was a poor Tex Mex, should not be called Mexican food, this is far from a Mexican experience. Flavorless beans and packaged rice as only entree’s side. Will never go back.

My Traverse City Cherry Margarita was great! Not too sweet, not too tart. The Guacamole was delicious. Our Enchiladas and Tamales were tasty in a light sauce. Our friends had the Taco Salad which was huge; they said it was good and took their left overs home. We will definitely return.

Live music was too loud and we even had a table that was further away from it. Service was poor and we found out our waitress, who was new, was fired midway through our dinner but the manager offered us worse service that the original waitress (she seemed annoyed). If the food tasted decent it would have made up for it, but it was just ok. Was looking forward to trying this place since we live close by but it was just a very disappponting overall experience.

The restaurant is brand new and an interesting concept. We were very excited to try it out. Immediately after sitting down we were brought chips which was great. Overall the food was pretty good though I did expect a higher quality- they gave a lot, but wasn't my favorite experience.

There was a band playing but it was really loud and our group had a hard time hearing each other even though we were on the other side of the restaurant. Waitress was nice but didn't come to check on us very often. My friend waited 15 minutes after she finished her drink before she could order another. Items were missing or incorrect on our order. It was the first time I'd brought my friends here and I was a bit embarrassed by the experience.

We have been eating here since they opened. Not sure if there is a change in management but the place has changed. The last 4 times we have dined there the service has been slow. Different times of day different crowd levels didn't matter just poor service. One visit the food order was wrong at that point to late to wait for them to correct it. This last visit service was very slow had to wait for refills on water. To many people working there for water glasses to remain empty. Disappointing experience.

With 3 other tables in the entire restaurant occupied, why did it take 20 minutes for our server to come to the table? Kitchen was also incredibly slow getting the food out, I mean its not like they were slammed with orders.

Horrible from beginning to end. Dirty-looking plastic flowers in patio window boxes were the first impression. Staff standing at the hostess station ignored us and were rude and unwelcoming. There were several open tables and we were first seated at one that was right in the flow of traffic to the patio-- it was between two doors and right next to a server station. Service was slow. Server was disinterested in providing any semblance of a nice experience. Food was unappetizing and seemed like it came out of a can or box. Would NEVER return or recommend.
