We arrived at the restaurant around 8pm , at first we thought that the food was good because the place was packed but unfortunately the experience was horrible. We couldn't be seated right away so we went to the bar for some drinks . We asked for margaritas and they were nasty , they had way too much alcohol and the taste of an original margarita was lost . Subsequently, we asked for the chips and they ended up charging me for me wow wow. We waited for one hour and finally we went to our table : the menu had nine entrées to choose from and they weren't choices that I couldn't easily recognize by their names so we picked whatever. Our food arrived and my enchiladas did not have any meat whatsoever and the chicken was so small and it wasn't cooked all the way. Overall the place looks ok inside , the food is bad and overprice .

For the people who are slamming these owners and saying it isn't a child friendly place, that is totally wrong! All they expect is for parents to discipline their children while in the eatery, and I don't blame them! There is no reason why a child should be up running through a restaurant destroying their expensive art work or restaurant and acting like a wild animal! It should be sheer embarrassment to the parent if their child is behaving in this manner, because more or less it is sending a statement their parenting skills are lacking!! Tame your kids people, a restaurant or in public isn't the place to allow your children to act in this manner!!!!

Your attitude towards children is deplorable. Yes, children should behave properly. And, yes parents should work towards teaching manners in public places. You, however, have not considered the possibility that children with disabilities may not always be able to control their volume. As for that matter, no child can learn without experience. Maybe you should stay home until you learn more about how to create an atmosphere more suitable to people. And, I will make sure when my very large family decides to eat out it will not be with your restaurants.

Okay Houstonians, not all Mexican food is Tex-Mex. You have to be aware of that, because I have seen people bewildered here when they aren't greeted with a basket of tortilla chips and salsa and no one eating burritos. This is D.F. Mexican cuisine, and surprisingly unique to Houston. The beverage selection is great, if you don't want booze try the tamarind juice. The service is attentive and informative, the portions are reasonable, again this is not Chuy's so you won't see any belt-busting servings for fajitas and queso. The tortilla soup is very unique and the 5 Leches is a 5 star dessert.

Great menu, friendly staff always make us feel at home. I agree with reviewers, it is not a tex-Mex restaurant, there are many in Houston so find one and stop bashing a really quality spot

Excellent and speedy service, delicious food and drinks, great atmosphere! Not a lot of authentic Mexican food in Houston (as compared to the over abundance of Tex-Mex) and this place definitely delivers authentic taste with contemporary decor. Definitely worth a visit!

We love Cuchara! Great atmosphere, fabulous food and drinks! If Tamarindo margaritas are on the menu order them you will not be disappointed. Appetizers- Chicken tinga tostadas, ceviche, mushroom quesdillas and chicarones with salsa. Entrees- Pollo Adriana is the best dish on the menu. The poblano sauce is lick your plate clean!

I applaud your efforts at making a persons dining experience pleasant.while some people dont agree with your methods of setting the tone i agree with your rules.there are some exceptions but if parents set down rules BEFORE entering a restaurant there would not be a need for the owners to do so.if i ever make it to montrose i will defenitely stop by to enjoy some authentic cuisine.hopefully not toooo spicy!

Thanks Jocelyn! Hopefully you will pay a visit soon. We will convert you to spicy sooner than you think! ;)
