The restaurant was busy, but to be expected on a Saturday racetrack night. Mexican fare, none of the items we had (party of eight) was tasty. Mediocre Mexican food...either bland or tasteless. 4 of our party did not eat the food it was so tasteless. Took 1.5 hrs to be served after ordering. When we asked our wait staff how... More

My husband & I decided to try Cantina for lunch this past weekend. It was very hot and we decided to eat inside. The restaurant wasn't very high on the Yelp app and I am not sure why! You start off with waters and great chips and salsa which I would have been happy with - Really light salsa that... More

Cantina in Saratoga is a great place to kick back, have a margarita, some chips with guac and dine with your dog at your side. In the alley next to the restaurant are 6 or so tables with umbrellas for outdoor dog friendly seating. The food was better than average Mexican and our server was very friendly. The kitchen seems...

Above average Mexican food in a trendy atmosphere in downtown Saratoga Springs. Sit outside on the sidewalk if possible because the noise from the large crowds inside made it difficult to hear my companion even from just across the table. Our waitress was excellent despite being very busy, and the prices are about what you'd expect to pay for quality... More

Great place to stop in for a margarita with friends and casual dinner. Heather is the best and made sure we had everything we needed. They were also able to accommodate a large group of our friends. Thank you!!!

I love a good chimichanga and Cantina on Broadway delivers the MEX menu goods in a tin ceilinged, mahoganied throwback to Saratoga Springs' bustling Gilded Age and Prohibition. A great stop to make with friends incl sidewalk seating.

All three of us had excellent food here and my chicken enchiladas mole were about the best that I have ever had, and I frequently order this dish. Tangy without being overpowering and with just enough of a sweetness. Highly recommended if you like mole negro. The staff was super friendly and nice and the service was great. The margaritas...

Cantina is located on the "strip" and naturally, there is seating outside to people-watch. The menu is quite diverse, so I'm sure most anyone could find something they'd be excited to try. The pomegranate wings and the mango margarita were very good. We saw lots of tables ordering the guacamole appetizer, which we will definitely try next time. For dinner,... More

My husband and I were passing through Saratoga Springs for the night and the Italian restaurant we planned to go to closed early, so we headed over the Cantina because it looked interested and we typically like any kind of "cantina" food. We were pleasantly surprised! I had a house margarita and my husband had a couple beers. I ordered... More

We went in fro drinks and decided to get sandwiches. The martinis were excellent especially the Raspberry martinis. The food was very good and the raspberry melba they brought with the food was delicious!
