Why this place is so popular is beyond me. They do have a couple of unique and tasty offerings, but generally it is overpriced for "try to be creative" concoctions.

This place is great. Great looking: trendy and sophisticated with a lot of Austin flair. The food was great, I had the Chicken Mole, EXCELLENT. The clasico Margarita is pretty amazing as well.

La Condesa has really great, inventive food, relying on interior Mexican rather than Tex-Mex (I prefer interior). The street corn is amazing. Lots of really tasty dishes on the menu and the desserts are really creative. Of the many times I've been here, I've had one kind of blah experience, but the rest have been really good. Nice people watching if you sit outside in nice weather.

I'd go back for the cocktails and atmosphere. The food was good, but in my opinion, not to die for. It is definitely a great place to go with a group of friends for a night out on the town!

The food is excellent. My only complaint is that the portions are on the small side. The atmosphere is very nice. There is a large outdoor patio. The bar area is a bit small but has a couch and some lounge chairs as well as a small outdoor balcony with chairs. La Condesa is definitely worth trying!
