Vegetarian friendly Mexican, thank you!

Vacillating somewhere between a vegan and a vegetarian, dining options outside of college towns can be somewhat limiting. Happily, Saratoga Springs has many options and this was our pick of the day. I ordered the cornmeal encrusted avocado tacos and was treated to a delightful taste sensation. They... read more

It's obvious by the title that we didn't like the food we ate. It was mediocre at best and a bit nauseating at worst. Normally, I would not berate any place for mediocre food alone. But, the premium price we paid for the 3 Mexican dishes suggested that we'd get something reasonably tasty. The best food we got were the... More

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

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.
