“BAD BAD BAD....Don't waste your money!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

We bought a Groupon for this restaurant hoping that the cute exterior would equate to good food....Wrong. The food served isn't Mexican cuisine....it's a bad anglo american version.

If you want real Mexican food, just head a couple miles SE to Burrito Station
(across the street from Praire State on Halsted)
The owner is from Aguascalientes, Mexico and the food is Authentic Mexican Cuisine. You will also pay less than Cilantro prices.

I have a great idea: Sell Cilantro to the owner of Burrito Station and watch the the restaurant flourish in profits. Heck, even I would invest in that venture.

“Boring and NO flavor or kick.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2011

The salsa is good. The food was flavorless and lacking spices. Plus the food was served in 3 minutes. Will not return anymore.

“Bland”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2011

My boyfriend and I went to Cilantro last Friday. We decided to check out this restaurant after seeing it on Check Please! The staff was friendly enough. The ambiance was nice, very colorful. The food left a lot to be desired. It was mediocre at best. I get a much tastier meal at Pepe's. I was also disappointed in my watered down strawberry margarita. I will not be returning to Cilantro.
