Tasty complex flavors instead of over cheesed food. They included ingredients I had only seen on the cooking shows. I had goat tacos and the meat was very tender. Vegitarian quessadilla with huitlacoche was smoky and sauce as good. Plantains and greens were great sides. Noted vegan options too. Service very quick on a crowded night.

I was in Philadelphia recently for a business trip and my friend was hungry for tacos so we tried this place out. Sometimes you just want a regular ground beef taco and sometimes you just want queso dip with your chips. This is not the place to get either of these things. You can get goat or vegan beef but...

I've been to this restaurant twice and each time I experience something new on the menu. The margaritas are pretty good, as well as their Sunday specials. I would definitely recommend the Black Bean and Tuna tacos!

Hi - had dinner here. All of us had different burritos. While not a fan of burritos, I had one with chicken with jalapenos. Well, lots of rice, of course. The jalapenos seem marinated and not to my taste. We did not know there were cool specials until after the meal. Our server who was really nice did not say... More

I am surprised to see so many reviews that are critical of the service at this place. Maybe they made some changes? but the night I was there the staff was excellent. Our servers were very attentive and knowledgeable about their food and drink menus. The food was also excellent. My G.F. and I stopped in around 10 p.m. for... More

Food-wise this place is excellent. Basically an innovative mexican restuarant with creative preparations. Flavors are very good (though never quite match our expectations). Chips and salsa on the table are very good. Burritos (try the goat) are very good. Flavored Margaritas are very good. Downside: It is LOUD and crowded in the restaurant. They've added outside seating but it to... More

I have been to the Cantina a few times, never again. The servers make you feel like you are doing them a favor being there. I think it is more of a hipster bar than a place for anything else. I did not like seing the large bait stations all around the outer fence. The outside area was packed so... More
