There were six of us for lunch today and, as always, everything was perfect. The service is always excellent and there is something for everyone. We had a great time and will be back.

I went here yesterday with my boyfriend for dinner, the staff was very friendly and the food was awesome! We both had a bowl of the seafood chowder which had a little bit of a kick to it but was delicious! He had a burrito that was as big as a kitten lol. I had the chicken tacos which come... More

Cantina dleoivers the whole package. Located in a turn of the century building located right on Broadway in downtown Saratoga Springs. Warmly greeted on entering and always seated promptly. Excellent margaritas and a gem of a Mexican fare menu. This is much more than just a burrito and taco joint, this is an extremely versatile menu offering the usual mex... More

I chose Cantina because they said they had live music, bought a new dress for the evening, but we were seated where the draft from the door, which was continually open, made it so cold that I had to wear my coat through dinner. First we waited a good twenty minutes to order drinks. By that time we knew what... More

Love to go to this place late night for a couple of beers before going home . There is a bartender that works here by the name of Chris . He is hands down one of the best bartenders if not the best in Saratoga . He remembered our drinks the second time we came in there . This place... More

If you're looking to just throw back some drinks their margaritas are good for that. But if you're looking for a fantastic margarita, like you're a critic, I wouldn't go here. There food is alright nothing to write home about. Typically Mexican restaurant. There is always a wait here. I would say its one of the cheaper options in Saratoga... More

Too fake...too filling...way too many carbs..too little fish in our fish special....not spicy...but then its upstate....polite service....overpriced for the contents of the dishes....maybe its the rent. I would love a good Mexican restaurant around. Do better.

Pleasant surprise on the East side of the Mississippi. Looking for a place to watch the game while I am on the road. Just what I was missing, but I did not know it at the time. A great selection of Tequila. Friendly patrons and staff. Great acoustic live music. excellent set list. Wished I could have stayed longer.

Have eaten here on several occasions with out of town visitors and have never had a bad meal. Terrific margaritas:). Chips and salsa are fresh and delish. Meals can be little pricey as can the drinks. Service has been either great or subpar. Nice atmosphere. Will go again.

The salsa tastes like chopped tomatoes with lime juice. Very bland though fresh. The kids meals do not come with rice and beans unlike Leon's. The kids liked the burrito and make your own soft tacos. My chili relleno was odd and way below average. It was undercooked and had too little melted cheese plus an odd goat cheese flavor... More
