Delicious Mexican

Great margaritas! We ordered a guacamole that came with chips and 4 different salsas, which were all delicious. Husband ordered the taco flight, with beef, shrimp and chicken and I ordered the chicken enchiladas, with mole, very good!. If you get the chance try the home made ice creams for... read more

Had a mixed experience at La Condesa. Although my entree of chicken enchiladas was very good, my friend, a vegetarian, wanted to order cheese enchiladas, which I don't believe were on the menu, but the server said could be prepared. That dish was a disappointment - as in the cheese had never melted inside and was cold. Guac was really... More

A sommelier recommended this place and so I popped by for tacos. They were okay but nothing outstanding. However chatting with others at the bar, it seems that this place is known for it's drinks and tequila selection. Unfortunately I was trying to stay sober as I was driving and couldn't partake. Service was friendly and the atmosphere was nice.... More

We were so delighted to find this great place with excellent Mexican flavors. We each ordered taco trio a choice of three out of six tacos. Guacamole, chips and margarita topped it all off!

We loved Market. Our server was nice and friendly. Atmosphere was nice and not too loud. Food tasty. The tortilla chips were great. Enchilada with mole sauce delicious! Little bit pricey. Bit cheaper than Tra Vigne.

My wife and I got the taco flights with margaritas. The margaritas were surprisingly delicious with the right amount of alcohol. The sass platter was anther thing we really enjoyed. All four salsas were very well made. Lastly, the shrimp and lamb tacos were to die for. We will definitely return here again.

We called in on a Saturday, without a reservation, and sat at the bar. We shared three soft tacos, choosing three different fillings (beef, lamb with mint, chicken). Our friend chose a sandwich that arrived with salad and chips. The service was attentive and we were very happy with our lunch.

Live music, great drinks, tasty and varied food choices. Love the separate room in the back as well as shared tables. Bar is great for hanging out. Margaritas are so good, you can't have just one.

We really didn't know what to expect of this restaurant but the food was fresh, different, and incredibly tasty. We ordered the taco flight. The shrimp and salmon were our favorite but the carnitas and lamb were excellent too. The margaritas were also very good and not watered down. We'll be back to try some of the other things on...

I don't typically go to "high-end Mexican" restaurants, but found myself here for lunch with a couple of girlfriends last weekend and it was great! We enjoyed the retro hanging lights as well as the rest of the interior decor and the service was very good. We started off with the guacamole and salsa flight which was both creative and... More
