I love the atmosphere here. It's a great place for a date or dinner with friends. I also love the fried plantains and homemade salsa. Having said that, the food is just average and you can find GREAT Mexican in this city. In addition I ordered take out once. I asked for a burrito with just beans and trimmings on the side. They filled the burrito and overloaded it actually with heaping amounts of shredded fatty cheese and tomatoes. In addition they added fries to the meal (which were delicious but, I did not ask for them). For the best food I suggest Maya, Rosa Mexicano, Mama Mexico, & Mexican Radio.

The food tasted like it was reheated in a microwave and the service was subpar! Our visit to this restaurant was a complete waste of money!

I was touring the city for a week and came looking for the Columbus Avenue Bakery for lunch. Unfortunately, it had moved, but fortunately, a clerk in a nearby store referred me to Cilantro's. What a pleasant surprise! The fish taco I ordered was wonderful. As an out of town visitor, I really enjoyed the sidewalk atmosphere. The service was a little slow and unattentive, but there's something to be said for being left alone to enjoy your meal as you watch the people and traffic go by. I'd return to Cilantro's any time.

This place has gone way down hill in terms of service and quality of food unfortunately. The chips were greasy and stale - the pico de gallo was suspicious looking (before it had always been fresh and delicious). The waiter was surly and unattantive, got my order wrong and didn't even apologize - someone else stepped in to take care of it. Will think twice about going back, and used to dine here very frequently.

$17 margaritas? The margaritas were good, but not worth $17 a piece!

Not expect a fancy restaurant but if you want to feel comfortable and relaxed go there for the specials (always very tasty) and for fantastic margaritas.
I live in the area and I go there often. You have to know what to order and some of the specialties are very very good! A plus is a very welcomming crew and an outstanding bartender who really know how to make you feel home.
