"Loved the mole, but all 4 of us had wonderful dishes."
"I felt like the pork and beans weren't cooked long enough."
"Not bad, but I think there is better mexican available for less money."

Supposed to be upscale mexican, but the food and the service when i went (once) were not worth the money. Not bad, but I think there is better mexican available for less money.

Weird experience. Friends recommended Cilantro, so I tried to make reservations. I called during their posted hours, but only got voicemail. I went to their web-based reservation service, but it said their computer was down. Finally, my wife and I drove to the restaurant - again, during their posted hours. There was a hand-written sign on a white board saying "Closed - Thank You". Are they out of business?

Overall, we really liked the dishes we had for Saturday brunch. We had the omelet with mole sauce, the vegetarian enchiladas and the crepas with the plantains for dessert. We especially liked the freshness of the vegetables in the enchiladas (the pyramid of rice on the side was a nice touch). The mole sauce on the omelet was excellent but there was far too much and it overwhelmed the other ingredients (less is more sometimes). We also had the horchata to drink and that was spectacular.

Good service, good food, but way overpriced. You can get simulate fare at other local Mexican restaurants for half the price. Plus, your chips and salsa will be free instead of $3.00. Probably won't return.

The guacamole is terrible, but the carne asada was the best I've ever had. It's pricey - guac, two drinks, and two dinners was $80 (w/ tip)

My Fiance and I decided to try Cilantro for lunch on Saturday afternoon since it's close to our place. The Menu was confusing and the waiter was less than clear on his explanations of the dishes. I gave up on listening to his descriptions and opted for the lunch buffet since they were touting the special sale. The lunch buffet offered rice, cowboy casserole, stuffed peppers, mushroom quesadillas, scrambled eggs, and a two other dishes that were an unrecognizable mess of mushed up food, and "Fresh" fruit. Everything was cold, bland and visually unappealing. This buffet will hurt business as long as it's this horrible. The only other complaint I have is charging $3.00 for a cup of coffee which was also cold.

I am from Mexico City and don't have time to visit my country often..but I always find myself missing the flavors in my grandmothers kitchen. A couple of friends and I visited Cilantro this past weekend and I have to say I will be going back soon! The food was fresh nothing out of a can or pre-made, our waitress was knowledgeable in the menu and the flavors of all the salsa's. My friends and I ordered different plates and shared a bit with each other. I can honestly say that I finally found a restaurant that does authentic Mexican and does not add that American taste good traditional food.
