    I come into town 2-3 times a year and always stop here. The food, drinks, ambiance is always a vibe but the customer service is top notch! I’m not sure how they train or what standards they use but it is noticeable in how well they treat us…. and I’m not an easy customer!

    The food and atmosphere got major upgrades with the move downtown. We had 4 different entrees and were arguing over who picked the best one. You can’t go wrong with any of the choices.

    Our entire dining experience was perfect. Cole did an excellent job of describing every menu item we asked out in great detail. His service and tempo were on point all night. He also provided silent service when needed. The food presentation for every dish was beautiful. Very balanced flavors and textures from the cocktails to the dessert. We left the restaurant very full and very happy.

    A feast for your senses! Every part of our experience was a treat. The atmosphere is very energetic with bright, bold colors and neon signs. The cocktails were delicious and beautiful. Our entrées were no different. The staff were all very friendly, welcoming, and attentive which leads me to believe that the owner/management is respectful and appreciative of them. I can’t wait to visit again!

    This is the best Mexican food we’ve ever had!! I’m sad it’s 8 hours away from my home. The food, ambience, service is outstanding!!! We’ll be back hopefully at least once a year! This is a destination eatery for sure!! The special the night we were there was Bierra tacos. It was phenomenally fantastic!! My spouse had the seafood tacos and that was outstanding as well! Had the guacamole with corn, the best ever. We had queso and the trio of salsas. All fantastic! Can’t say enough about how fantastic everything was!! Amazed still!!!

    The noise from the house sound system was completely overbearing causing anyone wanting to be heard to speak as loud as possible. Could barely hear my wife on what was supposed to be a nice birthday dinner - I read the reviews prior to making the reservation but never imagined it would be THAT loud. Also, although we did not opt for the ‘birthday celebration’ when the entire wait staff delivers a birthday desert singing/clapping (this literally happened three times in the time we were there) we are glad we didn’t. My wife is vegetarian… there were only a few items on the menu that were non-meat and the entree recommended by the server was incredibly bland. They did end up comping her meal in full which should be expected. My meal was very good as well as their margaritas. If they could turn their music down to a reasonable level and offer more options for those who don’t eat meat we might be back. Until then, be warned… this is louder than most bars at their peak hours. Yes, people do want to have a conversation when you go to a decent place to have dinner.

    Food was excellent! Service was less than expected. Had a reservation and had to wait about 15 minutes and then another 10 minutes for a server. Quite pricey for a guacamole, chips and 6 tacos. -$75. I will go back to see if service was a one time thing and will probably split a meal.

    This restaurant is extremely loud. We asked to sit outside so we could hopefully have a conversation over dinner. Very loud techno music was blaring from the speakers a few feet from my ears. The food was good, although it took a long time to arrive, and the service was fine. The decor and ambience was nicely done. I would not return here because of the noise level.

    The food is formulaic. Chicken tinga is the same as at other Ole restaurants. Enchiladas are not tacos with sauce on them. A margarita in an old fashioned glass should not cost $16.50. And Fernando Martinez needs to stop posting inappropriate stuff that denigrates the LGBTQIA community on facebook and then explain it away as a “joke.” I won’t be eating here or at his other establishments again. It’s not worth it.

    It was mine and my boyfriends anniversary - wanted to try a new place. Our server only checked on us when we looked at him, and he only came over 4 times. The music was really loud, couldn’t hear ourselves talk and I think because the music was too loud everyone else was yelling at one another. It wasn’t the experience everyone had told me about so I was disappointed.

    Modern Mexican means over priced mexican without the norms or a typical mexican restaurant. 18 dollars for chips and salsa shouldn’t be a thing.

    My friends and I visited Guacamole Modern Mexican Restaurant for the first time tonight. We were a group of ten women. First of all, the restaurant is beautiful. Our server, Roger, was exceptional. He was able to recommend dishes on the menu, joke around with us, and still be professional by providing excellent service. The food was incredible and the drink menu impressive. There wasn’t anything that we didn’t absolutely love. We will definitely be back.
