    Based on my visit yesterday evening, I'd say you're paying a premium for ambience, location, and presentation. I had the Carne Asada, cooked medium. The flavor of the steak was average, half the steak was cooked medium and the other half was well-done. There were enough onions & peppers for one of the four tortillas. The steak arrived on a cast iron griddle that sat atop a rather large wooden box. The corn tortillas and a steak knife were inside of the box. The box didn't add anything to the dining experience and ultimately just got in the way. The drawer was difficult to open due to the moisture trapped inside from the tortillas. I paid twice what I would have paid for the same meal at a casual Mexican restaurant for about the same quality of food. The steak fajitas I've had at Chuy's were better than the Carne Asada I had last night. With that said, the refried black beans and guacamole with blue corn tortilla & plantain chips were excellent. Our waiter, Cole, was excellent. He was well acquainted with the them menu and was able to give helpful suggestions. This might be a great place to go for drinks and an appetizer but I wouldn't go there again for a meal.

    My husband and I went to Guacamole Modern Mexican for date night on a Sunday. Super glad we made reservations, it was not horribly busy when we got there at 4:15pm, but was packed by the time we left at 5:15pm. We ordered both the traditional guacamole and queso, and both were delicious!!! The queso was thick and creamy, not your traditional watered down queso from popular chains. I had the Tacos Al Pastor while my husband had the Burrito Al Carbon. Both were cooked to perfection! We loved the ambiance and look of the restaurant, the wait staff was very professional and friendly! Highly recommend!

    Our first visit to Guacamole Modern Mexican was great. I recommend making a reservation through OpenTable as the restaurant was very busy. We got seated right away upstairs which was quieter than the main floor. Our waiter was quick to take our drink order. He was very helpful explaining the menu and answering our questions. Both my husband and my meals were excellent - I had the Mahi, Mahi tacos which were wonderful and very filling. It's a little pricier for a Mexican restaurant, but well worth it - I would certainly go back a second time - there were lots of wonderful choices on the menu.

    For months, I have noticed long lines outside of Guacamole, and I now see why! The food is modern Mexican (which will mean new ingredients for some diners), creatively presented (like with flowers on top), and delicious! Fun cocktails too (also very creative in their presentation). The restaurant's rooms are beautifully decorated, and the vibe is fun and lively. We are looking forward to going back there again!

    The food choices are amazing. I had the goat cheese salad and beyond great. My friends had the Baha Tacos. Very good. The traditional guacamole was the best. It was loud and made talking across the table difficult at times but the food and drinks made it all right.

    The manager is great. The best. This particular night it was late and the orders were wrong. The waiter did not right anything down. He took the orders and went off of memory. This led to the orders being wrong. 4/5 orders were wrong. However, the manager did not charge 3/5 people. Poor interaction with guests upstairs. I will return because it is a great place and as I said the manager is wonderful.

    Service was extremely slow and my order was messed up. I order a salad and there were ingredients in the salad that were not listed on the menu. The problem was my salad came out 15 mins after everyone else’s Entrees came out. Their food was cold by the time I got my salad and then I had to send my salad back because I’m highly allergic to the ingredients that were on the salad. That added more wait time and by then everyone else was finished. I did not even order the Flan which is my favorite thing on the menu. I am suppose to bring my family there this weekend but I am not sure now. Fingers crossed that this time will be better.

    This was for my husbands birthday. I was a little disappointed they didn’t celebrate him like they did for every other person around us. But it was ok. The food and service were wonderful. Amazing presentation. I do think the value was lacking however. Similar meals at other places are around a third of the cost.
