This was a wonderful find! It looks very new- the design is very modern, yet very warm. There are 3 separate fireplaces which really added to the ambiance. There is an out door patio, but the way it was designed it was more like indoors with multiple huge doors on 2 sides that opened to make if feel like it was out doors. They have a travelling guacamole cart - and I would recommend the spicy version - it was fabulous. I had the fish tacos, and was disappointed that they were very bland. But overall the food was good, and just a lovely place to meet people and share food and drinks.

We stopped by here on a whim and were pleasantly surprised by the fresh and tasty food. We tried the guac which was very good. The entrees were so fresh and delicous as well. And the drinks were fantastic!

First - the coolest part of the meal is they made fresh guacamole to order right at your table! It was fantastic! The service was good, the meal was delicious - we would definitely recommend!

We recently visited Cantina Laredo and were instantly impressed with the atmosphere of the restaurant. Very modern and clean. Impressive. However, the flavors were far from impressive. Food seemed to be lacking spices. If the food tasted as good as it looked, this would be a home run.

On a sunday night, just in the middle of town, we wanted to eat some simple mexican food, avoiding the typical heavy dishes you sometimes have.

This place is a so-called modern mexican restaurant. I have to agree with this. The dishes are tasty as they should be, but instead of having one huge taco, you get three smaller ones, allowing you to exchange the different flavors with your neighbors at your tables :-) So that's perfect.

A fun thing is that they have a table on wheels that they bring to you to prepare the guacamole in front of you and this allows you to choose the way you want to have it done.

For the cocktails, thumbs up :-) Not to sweet for one, just the way i like it.

For desserts, a brownie. Delicious. The weird thing though is that they bring it on a skillet and pour butter around it. I'm less of a fan of that, but I guess other people love it ;-)

As for service, nice and friendly waiter.

For the location: perfect location near the magnificent mile.
The place is decorated in a modern and clean way, with plenty of space between tables.
