    Had a bit of a wait late on a Saturday afternoon and then got put in a corner booth with the table and benches in a fixed position with one side of the booth being extremely narrow. I am a pretty small person and it was tight even for me. Liked the chips and salsa even if they weren’t complimentary Iike many Mexican restaurants. I ordered a few different types of tacos and a salad. They were good, but not great. The location of the restaurant on the canal was really cool. They let us know when they seated us that we’d have a 20% service fee added to our tab in lieu of a tip beforehand which I thought was strange for a party of two. Service was maybe average at best though so maybe that was smart on their part. Would maybe go back, but would probably research other options first.

    My family and I kicked off the holidays w/ Tinsel & Tequila and everything was awesome! No one had a complaint about the food, service or drinks! You can’t go wrong with the Empandas and the Avocado caesar salad! It was our 1st time, so the lack of parking was a surprise. Thankfully, the great experience over shadowed ALL of that!

    A must stop if you’re in the area. Our bartender Amari was awesome. He was very knowledgeable about the different Tequilas and his personality was great. He is definitely an asset to the Resturaunt and I will definitely returning because of the experience I had there.

    We sat at the bar, and Xavier was our server. Amazing food, attentive server and a fun atmosphere. We had the empanadas, which were a 5 star in my book. Both the dishes we had were appropriately sized for 1 person; very authentic/traditional Mexican.

    Javier is an expert in tequila. I have been gaining interest in tequila and Javier took the extra step to give me a tasting of a phenomenal tequila and gave a full lesson on what I was drinking. I always appreciate when people that are passionate about their interests and are excited to pass it on, I felt that with Javier. Great experience.

    Stopped by to show a friend the place and we all sat down and Amari was the bar tender, gave us a great tequila lesson, had a couple shots/tasting… he was on point and knows his stuff and his way around the restaurant… ordered food based on his recommendations. We had a really good time for an impromptu stop! He went out of his way to tell us the tab automatically added 20%… as a result he got an addl 20%… will definitely be back to see Amari…

    Great place. Amari made this an experience. We just went in for a look. He told us all about the tequilas and gave us a real educational session. I will bring by brother back for sure. Amari was professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic. I will be back just for the Amari experience! Myself, my significant other and my BFF. We were just walking by, ended up at the bar, 3 tequilas later …. Great experience! Thanks!!!!!

    Tasty food, good and friendly service.
    Right by the canal with a very nice outdoor area.
    The downside to this spot is they automatically charge you 20%gratuity, which is fine.. but they don’t mention that when you are paying and they ask you if you wanna add extra tip.

    So be aware that when you pay you are not over tipping.

    Pretty awesome location. Food and cocktails were a delight after a Sunday morning walk. We had the 3 amigos and fish tacos. Both delicious. Alex our server was very friendly and professional.

    The only problem I had with this establishment was the service fee. They are basically admitting that in order to have professional staff, that is paid a competitive rate, the customer needs to supplement their wage through a service fee. They even have the gall to ask for an additional tip on top of the service fee. I’ve seen this in massive tourist spots like Miami where foreigners don’t know about the “Tip culture” but from my experience it’s a way to get double tips.

    2nd visit to this restaurant and it just doesn’t live up to the rating it has. Way overpriced for the quality and variety of food offered. I could see one appetizer, one entree, one alcoholic drink, and one non-alcoholic drink costing more than $40, but definitely not at this place. The quality of food and drink was lackluster. It’s unfortunate because it’s a great atmosphere and a sweet location.

    I was disappointed in this experience. I waited about a half hour for my food after ordering. The fish tacos were bland, very little flavor, and the server stopped for about a half -second to see “everything OK?” For all of that they impose a mandatory 20 % gratuity! But how else can they get tips for their servers? Not with food or service!

    One star solely for the lovely host/manager who presented birthday cards to the girls we were celebrating. Unfortunately it was all downhill from there. We were one of five tables in the entire restaurant and our server did not come back to take our order for 45 minutes after getting drinks. We ordered through the QR code although he told us he would take care of us, which just ended up making the check out system difficult. Took another 30 minutes just to get two checks and both of them had incorrect orders on them. Food was dry and had no flavor, drinks were just ok. Very upsetting because they have such a great location. Skip this place, go to Maya or Kahlo’s.

    This small but quaint place served great libations. I ordered a blackberry and basil margarita. The beverage was very refreshing and the food was spectacular. I ordered the carne asada fries. People in my party ordered the chicken fajitas and they were flavored to perfection. Must try.

    The food was very lack luster. I got two fish tacos. One had a sauce and the other didn’t. They were sad looking and bland. Service was not good. Our server took our order and refilled my water. Other than that we never saw her and had to pay using the QR code on our table. The fact that 20% gratuity is automatically added is unfortunate because we did not get the kind of service that type of gratuity is for. The busser and food runners were very on top of everything as food and drinks came out quickly.

    Food is good, but our service experience was terrible. Starter never showed up. One of our entrees did not arrive with the other meals. Mistakes happen, but to have to chase down our server and the manager to get the situation sorted is not right. There was an air of nonchalance about the poor service that was sad to see. Not coming back in a hurry.

    We walked in on a Sunday afternoon for drinks and appetizers and practically had the place to ourselves. My family had come into town to surprise me for my birthday. I thought this would be a great place to just sit, talk, and enjoy some drinks and appetizers. And Casa Del Barco did not disappoint. Our food was delicious. We had a variety of appetizers that included street corn, nachos, chicken empanadas, chips and salsa, queso. Yeah, we had a lot! and it was all delicious. My sisters/brothers know their margaritas and they did not complain about the ones they had here so they must have been pretty good. Our wait staff was super friendly and attentive. Wouldn’t hesitate to go back for a minute. Thanks CASA! Sorry I don’t have pics of the food; I guess we were so busy enjoying it.

    When I entered the restaurant on a Wednesday, I saw a total of 8 customers. I then waited 25 minutes to receive my order of shrimp tacos only to find that that they were not even shrimp tacos but beef tacos, then waited another 20 minutes for them to get me the correct order. By the time it came to the table, everyone else had finished eating. Since the service was not at all professional, I was forced to pay a service fee to “allow them to guarantee all staff a professional hourly wage”. Food was very bland, portions were small. I would not recommend anyone eat here, save your money and go to an authentic Mexican restaurant.

    With a group of ten. My nephews food did not come out until we were literally done with our food. Of coarse because of the circumstances I let him eat my food, he was starving due to the lengthy wait. They were so kind as to take his food off, that we boxed up, but did not feel it was necessary to compensate the fact that I did not eat because he ate my lunch! Then on top of that I was unaware that they already charged a 20% gratuity. So $70 for lunch, I didn’t eat and tipped way over what should have been. Never again!

    Worst margarita I’ve ever had at a restaurant! Seriously…it looked like a clear drink with absolutely no flavor. And I upgraded to the “Cadillac” margarita. It was so bad that I plan to contact their management to figure out how making a good Margarita at a Mexican restaurant could go so poorly. Too bad as the atmosphere is quite fun but won’t be going back. Nachos were average and we found it annoying that a 20% tip was automatic when the service fell short.

    I don’t even know where to start.
    First, service was horrible. We were seated without any napkins or utensils even when food arrived, we had to ask for utensils and napkins.
    Ordered beer and drink and nobody asked if we wanted a refill or another beer.
    Food had no taste, no true Mexican seasoning were used. Salsa tasted like a cheap store bought tomato sauce, so watery. Guacamole had no salt/pepper or lime juice added.
    20% gratuity is rip-off and on top of that you are being charged tax on gratuity.
    One of the server’s pants were hanging so low from his butt that underwear was visible, this is something that I do not want to see when eating. Overall I don’t recommend eating there.

    The only issue dampening the dining experience was the imposed 20% service charged which is then taxed. That’s just plain wrong.
    Otherwise, the food was decent. The fish strips in the tacos were crunchy (more crema needed and the tortilla texture was slightly rubbery).
    The decor was cool with bottles affixed to the ceiling and walls.

    Great Experience! Christopher, our server was polite and knowledgeable. Drinks were on point – tasted like fresh/house made margarita mix! Food was some of the best we’ve had in a while. Had the mushroom Empanadas which were super flavorful. The street corn bowl with Al pastor was also great! Our Fav was the Tres Leches cake. Hats off to the chef and the rest of the staff!

    Was not impressed by the food at all…Steak tacos were very fatty, Mexican corn tasted bland…Waitress was just kinda blahh…We asked for 2 different mixed drinks was told they couldn’t make…Had to ask for refills on water after being empty for awhile…Definitely not worth the money…Definitely not happy that the 20% was added when the waitress had no personality & we usually tip atleast 25%.

    We came on 8/9/23 as a work happy hour party to celebrate the departure of our director. The female servers and female bartender acted like they didn’t want us there for some reason, but the one male bartender was very nice. I thought maybe it was just me who thought that and kept it to myself, but today my coworkers said the same thing. It didn’t really make sense why they were acting that way because the place wasn’t super packed at the time. Very rude for no reason.

    My friend and I sat outside, and I really liked the atmosphere in general. The service was very attentive. I ordered the Casa Crunch burrito, aka chicken tinga burrito, which tasted great.

    My friend and I split nachos with portobello mushrooms on top, which we both really liked. We also split a side of Mexican street corn, which was very flavorful.

    Unfortunately, something did not agree with me, as my meal sat in my stomach overnite, making me feel bloated, uncomfortable, and unable to sleep. I think you get the picture.

    Anyway, if I go there again, I will probably not eat. Unlike me, my friend had no stomach problems, but she didn’t get a chicken dish. I’m just sharing my experience.

    The food was good. But the service was a joke.. we were seated by the host and no one ever came to wait on us. We eventually flagged down someone to order. The restaurant wasn’t even half full. They were not busy they just didn’t care to wait on us I guess. We had to then flag down someone to bring the check because the only time the staff came to us was when they brought our food. To charge a default 20% service charge for this type of service is appalling. We will not be back.

    Food decent, very cool atmosphere. Service horrible.

    The hubby and I had to come to Richmond on a little road trip from Virginia Beach. I saw this restaurant when searching for where to eat in Richmond and I thought that it was well situated to do some walking in the canals afterward.
    The restaurant location and atmosphere are pretty cool. As the restaurant is located in an old factory setting. There’s bottles all over and the decor is rustic modern, if that makes sense.
    Upon entering we were greeted and seated right away, the waitress brought us waters and gave us a few minutes to look over the menu.
    Right away I saw that they actually charge you for chips and salsa, which I thought was weird because at any true Mexican restaurant expensive or not, the chips and salsa are usually complimentary, but we ordered them anyway. My husband picked the fish tacos and I got very excited to see carne asada fries on the menu as I am a Cali girl from San Diego.
    Food arrived promptly, and I had to remind the waitress that we had ordered the chips and salsa. My carne asada fries to begin with weren’t “carne asada” as I literally dug around to look for meat, and found two small pieces at the bottom. It was literally just fries with some sour cream and a tiny lump of guacamole. The fries were seasoned so they were good.
    My husbands fish tacos were bland with no seasoning/ taste whatsoever! The fish was suppose to be Mahi-mahi but it tasted and looked like frozen Tilapia. I’ve had fish tacos from the source in Ensenada Mexico multiple times and Tilapia is typically used but these tacos were horrible in all honesty. The tortilla was rubbery and falling apart.
    The worse part was the chips and salsa, the chips were bland and stale and the red salsa was just tomato paste and water! Literally no flavor at all! NOTHING and they charge for it.
    Also 20% gratuity is included already on your check which is taxed by the way!
    I so wanted to like this place but it fell flat! I know that finding good “Mexican” food in Virginia is impossible, but I have found a couple of places that are more authentic when it comes to the taste I know and love from my Mexican heritage, but sadly this wasn’t it!

    I’m usually hesitant to go to any “mexican” restaurant outside of Mexico, New Mexico, Cali, Texas, & a few other states!
    BUTTTTTT……
    LEMME TELL YOU ABOUT THIS ONE! The food & atmosphere, phenomenal 🤌🏼
    We went around 5 or 6pm like right after HH.. :/ & it started getting busier & busier by the minute (this was a Tuesday 😳) we were estimated a wait for a table for 25 minutes. turned into about 1 hour. I think they are short staffed. This place was poppin though. The all you can eat Chips & salsa, delicious (salsa could use a little more cilantro though) I also got the crunchy burrito A MUST 👌🏼🤤. We also got the non alcoholic drink with Ginger beer, lime, & something else. absolutely amazing 😮‍💨 (usually N.A. drinks are 🗑️🥴.) We also got the Churros and let me tell you I search HIGH & LOW for amazing churros & these are just as good as Disneylands (which are my FAVORITE btw) which I always try to find churros that are the same as Disneylands & I can’t ever find them. These are now my 2nd favorite churros! Anyways these churros are just magnificent with chocolate inside with a scoop of ice cream & lots of whipping cream 😋!

    Sarah our server was wonderful. She seemed like she was in the weeds though but she did the best she could!

    Stopped for takeout and wanted drinks while we waited for said takeout. Bartender asked for a card which was normal but closed us right away. We told him we wanted to order food while we were drinking and again he demanded a card and then closed us out again. It just seemed very hi & bye. I wonder who else he asked for a card while we waited at the bar for food and closed us. We would have ordered more drinks while we waited but It probably didn’t matter to him since he slapped that auto service fee and he made his money. Won’t be back.

    This place has potential, but fails to live up to it. Today was our second time dining, and once again fell short for various reasons.

    1. Served a completely empty empanada. When we informed the waiter, he quickly took it back, only to return with a mushroom filled empanada, instead of pork. He never returned to ask if everything was ok. Bizarre.

    2. Service is seriously lacking. Both times we’ve dined all waitstaff appears uninterested, unhelpful, and entitled to the 20% gratuity. I don’t have a problem with tipping well, I have a problem with inattentive staff who don’t care to ask if you need drinks, food, or even your bill. We ended up paying with the QR code. Before we left, I stopped by the hostess’ table to let her know we had paid via the app, even that seemed to annoy her.

    3. Happy hour is at the bar only. How weird. We came at 4:30 pm (happy hour is from 4-6 during the week), and we sat outside on the patio. The whole restaurant was empty. We were told you only get happy hour if you sit at the bar… Just a small detail, but just another disappointment.

    4. Parking at the adjacent lot is expensive, almost $10. Given the poor service and subpar food, that parking fee just isn’t worth it. I suggest that the restaurant considers validating parking fees with a free margarita or beer, or SOMETHING.

    All in all, this place has a great patio, canal location, huge space… But seriously lacking on a lot of important things. I can’t recommend this place and we won’t be returning.

    My husband and I had just gotten to town and we happened upon Casa Del Barco. Our waiter approached and asked for our drink order and if we wanted salsa, quac or queso with our chips. I ordered a sweet Tea my husband ordered a margaritas. The waiter informed us there was a 20 % gratuity added to the check automatically. My sweet tea wasn’t sweet . I asked the waiter if he’d bring sweetness to the table and another waiter had to bring it to me. The waiter was no where to be found throughout the meal to ask us how our food was and other waiters brought our food to the table and assisted with other items needed. Our waiter did show up to bring the check which had no itemized details of our orders and the actual cost. We asked to to split the check and only took my husband’s card. My husband didn’t wish to stir things up but while he was in the rest room I spoke to the manager Javier and after complaining that we got no service that was decent from our server he claimed that he woul immediately return the 20 % gratuity.
    Kennie Bowen is still waiting on that gratuity refund! Never ever eating there again! Apparently most Virginia restaurants include a gratuity and provide poor service!

    Terrible food and not very good drinks. I’ve been here 3 times now and everytime I leave dissatisfied. The margaritas do not taste good, and they taste like they’re made from a Jose Cuervo mix. I got the rice and bean bowl with chicken and it was flavorless. I took it home to add my own salsa and spices, but very disappointing. Also, happy hour only works at the bar, so you can’t get those prices at your table. Plus the 20% automatic gratuity hits extra hard when your food and drinks stink! It’s a nice atmosphere though. But if you want good Mexican in the Richmond area, I recommend Blue Habanero!

    Honestly, worst overall dining experience I have ever had at a restaurant. They were out of half the items we were trying to order, but continued to ring the items in on the electronic system that they use – which is not visible to the customer. One of our drinks took almost 30 minutes to be delivered, which led up to the time we were waiting to leave. We were shocked at the high price of the bill because yes we ordered drinks and food, but there is no way our bill should be close to $200. When we asked about why the price was so high our server just began reading out the items one by one out loud of what we ordered and the price of each item. Then we asked to see the items to which he showed us a tiny screen and rolled through the items quickly giving us no time to actually view a receipt. I asked if we could maybe have a drink taken off or something for the long wait and instead of responding he just ran the card. We asked for a printed receipt which he gave us AFTER running the card. There was 40 dollars worth of drinks that we did not receive and were charged for (because they were out of stock). This equated to closer to 60 dollars due to the 20% gratuity that is added, which is a whole other issue here.

    They were unable to print us a voided receipt, but printed us a receipt with the new price. Which was concerning because they told us to “take their word” it was fixed.

    I do NOT think this service deserves an automatic 20% gratuity. My husband and I are good tippers and we take care of those that take care of us, but I think having automatic 20% gratuity POORLY affects the service given. Doesn’t look like this is the first review that agrees with that statement.

    All in all, I will not be returning.

    DO NOT come here if you have a food allergy! The chef is unwilling and not prepared to handle ANY issue you may have. Have dined here several times over the years and this was the 1st time I have heard this. VERY disappointing! The manager even agreed that the chef should have a plan, but was unwilling to help me! I have an allergy to crustaceans, and was told that the only thing I could order was a chicken bowl with steamed chicken. Everything else comes in contact with shrimp. It is appalling that there is literally one thing on the menu if you have a food allergy. Very disappointed.

    Uh, I did not like this restaurant and am amazed that it seems to do fairly well–perhaps because a fair number of people live in apartment/lofts nearby and there are few other restaurants in the area. First, it’s in a weird downtown location–near the Shockoe flood wall, an interstate highway overhead–that is not easy to find—even with GPS. Second, there is literally no parking. There is a big apartment parking lot nearby–but it is for residents and they are said to be serious about towing. An employee suggested I try “the Pipeline.” I had no idea what she was talking about but managed to find it nearby–6 spaces on the other side of the flood wall for people doing things on the river, apparently–and all taken. Other than that, be prepared to park somewhere on the street or in a parking deck a quarter of a mile away. That the restaurant is on the “canal walk” is supposed to be a selling point. Uh, no. The canal outside the restaurant has no more than a foot of stagnant water–no flow–and there is trash in it. It’s not scenic. The inside space is nice, the margs good. We had a lengthy wait for our food, even tho the place was not very crowded. My wife’s chimichangas were tasty, but my enchiladas were overcooked–I’ve never had enchiladas with hard-crust tortillas–and the beans were tepid–not warm and, hence, not good. We were not given our bill; the waitress came over and told me what I owed, which is not really acceptable given that restaurants often make billing mistakes. She showed me our tab on her device. What’s more, the restaurant tacks a 20% tip on every order–more of today’s tipping nonsense and also, to me, unacceptable. Waiters/waitresses have no incentive to provide good service if they’ve got a 20% tip automatically. I can’t at all recommend this place.

    The waitresses audibly talking smack about the customers did not help the restaurant quality, neither did the horrible food, ordered steak tacos, paid $17, got three little tacos, one string of tiny meat on each. Corazon was audibly saying that my table won’t tip based on how we look.

    Staff are very catty and rude. Especially Corazon. We brought two more people than our reservation and they wouldn’t even fathom to use a single brain cell as to how to make it work. Not till my friend suggested if two people can sit at the bar, we mentioned that we didn’t mind being separated…. I go to the bathroom mid meal and I hear Corazon and other workers talking badly about customers and us in the middle of the restaurant saying things like “I bet they won’t tip”. Food was bad service was terrible. I suggest going to Kahlos if you want good food and service. It’s a small business too unlike this chain that won’t even take the time to teach employs that if they are going to run their mouth don’t do it in the middle of the restaurant where many people from my party can hear…. Calling the manager tomorrow it was that bad

    Food is pretty great, the service could use some work. Our service missed probs of our order, food was brought extremely late and say different times. Very little check back on our progress or desirs. You are better off just using their ordering app at your table, for real. Also they play their music way way too loud over their outdoor speakers. If you are sitting near then you can’t hear anything around you.

    Delicious food with mobile ordering which is great for splitting the checks and deciding on food in different times. An outdoor area which was great for a quick trip with an antsy child and pets as well. There is a bar and indoor seating as well. Great walk and the canal and to the river from here. There is no designated parking and it can be difficult depending on when you are going and how long you are staying.

    Great food, terrible service on my visit, the waitress seemed to ignore our party and took an unacceptably long time to take our order, forgetting some items and making the experience negative. At the end, she took the payment device before I could leave negative feedback (thumbs up or down). I think she knew how she did

  268. Gianni Macklin 2023/06

    Very disappointed with my first experience here…food was overpriced, lukewarm (including the fajitas despite the plate sizzling), bland, and just plain unsatisfactory. The service was just as bad…our server got one of our drinks wrong and when he realized it by the end of the night there was no acknowledgement or apology. I understand now why the service fee is included…no one would be willing to pay the server 20% with service like that.

    The food was decent. It was overpriced however and they are stingy with the meat servings. Also, they should definitely have an outside section for patrons with dogs. Saturday, May 20 was a bit overwhelming with all the dogs present. My allergies required us to be moved inside. Really wanted the full experience on my first visit…

    We visited for the first time after a trip to the nearby theater. The decor is really cool, and the location is very interesting as well! We were very excited to try a couple of the drinks that we had read about on the menu but unfortunately several of them were not available due to missing ingredients. We were hoping to try the blackberry basil margarita and also the sangria, and neither of those were available. We started off with the dip sampler For an appetizer, which was delicious, but the chips were overly salty. We did ask for some with a little less salt, which took a few minutes, but we did receive them, which was very nice. The entrées were all delicious. I do recommend the Carne Asada burrito although it is rather spicy so make sure you do not order it if you can’t handle a little spice. Desserts are yummy too so don’t forget to try the chocolate filled churros. Sara was our waitress, and she was very nice and checked on us often! We would visit again and hopefully all drinks would be available!

    My husband and I tried eating here today. The hostess was very nice but we sat at the table for 20 minutes without any serve staff ever coming to check on us and the QR menu they have wasn’t working so we couldn’t have ordered food that way either. It was disappointing seeing waiters go to the other tables on the patio, which we were sat at, but yet none of them even bothered to come to us. We eventually decided just to leave because we were tired of feeling like we didn’t exist.

    The casa crunch burrito was like a high quality crunch wrap supreme from Taco Bell. Delicious. What I don’t like is the service model. Big push to get you to order/pay through the app and not your server. Which I think results in clashing workflows and delays. Also the automatic 20% gratuity model is unproductive.

    If I could rate them lower, I would. Staff is untrained, uncaring, and rude. They will do anything to avoid your table and try to get you to order online. They know they’re making their automatic 20% no matter how unbearable they make your experience. The only thing worse than the staff is the food and prices. It’s about as close to authentic Mexican food as Taco Bell just with fresher ingredients. In fact I’d sooner recommend Taco Bell than this place, atleast you’ll get polite and fast service at Taco Bell.

    I am shocked that this place has a rating above 4. It was hands down the worst Mexican I’ve had. It took a long time for the food to come and when it arrived it just wasn’t good. I thought my tortillas were from an order of mu shu pork at a cheap Chinese take out. (I would have enjoyed more) the Three Amigos featured salsa that tasted like it was from a can and something that did not resemble ‘authentic queso’. I was not impressed unfortunately.

    Omg! This place is SO GOOD!! The atmosphere is incredible and I just love the location, it’s beautiful. And I swear that burrito was one of the best things I’ve had in my life. Probably my only gripe with this place is the price, it’s kinda expensive so I’d save this restaurant for special occasions. Food was a bit slow although the fact we went while it wasn’t crowded but it wasn’t a big issue. Staff was nice! I’d give this place 6 stars if I could.

    Adding a star to the review because the bar they added in front of the restaurant outside is great on a nice day and has great happy hour prices.

    From 2021:
    It’s fine. I’m not sure why it has been talked up so much, feels and tastes like most American Mexican restaurants I’ve been to, but slightly more pricey.

    This restaurant is highly rated in downtown Richmond. We were looking for a nice place for a Sunday evening Mexican meal. So, we gave it a try. It’s in a nice location, down in the bottom and on the canal walk. It’s located in an old brick converted factory or warehouse building. It’s spacious, airy and with very nice spacing between the tables. It was not at all crowded when we were there, and we were seated immediately. I like the ambiance.

    The menu is much more limited than most such restaurants. There are few vegetarian entries, really none billed as such. Of course, you can order meat entries and simply omit the meat. My wife chose a crispy burrito dish with chicken. I chose the same, but without the chicken. They do not serve the nearly ubiquitous chips and salsa which most Mexican restaurants sit on the table virtually as soon as you are seated. If you want these it’s a $3.50 charge. I consider those a rite of passage. So, we did not opt for those.

    The service speed was a little on the slow side considering they were not at all busy. The meal was simply the burrito sitting cut in half on a small tin pan with a small container of zesty sour cream. There was nothing else with it at all. I’m used to getting refried beans, Spanish rice, etc. to round out the meal. But, there was nothing. I wanted some salsa, to spice it up a bit. But, it was difficult to get the waiter’s attention to get this.

    The food was seasoned well and quite tasty. It was not very spicy to my taste. But, it was good. Though, it was more like an a la carte dish than an entry.

    They add a 20% “gratuity” to the bill total. I don’t like this. I typically tip that much, or more, as I have waited, as has my wife. So, we both feel the help deserves it. But, I feel the forced tip reduces the performance of the waite staff. Our waiter was very friendly. But, he was not at all attentive. Under normal circumstances better waite staff make more money, simple as that. So, I think the establishment’s practice is bound to reduce customer satisfaction.

    I think this restaurant could easily flush out the menu a little, put some sides on the plate, add some vegetarian entries, provide some chips and salsa and drop this forced gratuity and they would be much more appealing to me. They do have some positives I mentioned above. But, overall my experience was mediocre.

    This place looks great and has fun ambiance, but that is where it stops pretty much. The guacamole was good but not worth $8. The service with the 20% tip included is bad to say the least. We had to wait over an hour for our food which was just tacos and burritos, my daughters order was removed entirely so she was the only one without food while everyone got theirs and a side was missing. The steak taco I got itself was by far the worst taco I’ve ever had. It had hard cartilage and was fatty and not worth the $7 for the size.. others in our party said it was the worst Mexican food they’ve had. The two stars are only for the looks of the place which is really cool. If you’re only coming for guac and drinks it’s probably fantastic.

    ABSOLUTELY SPEACHLESS!!!!! DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!!!!!!!

    They automatically include a 20% gratuity on the bill and do not mention anything about it. You pay your bill with the server using their tablet, they swipe your card & turn the screen over to you with the tip screen. We tipped 20% when there was already a 20% tip included that they do not mention to you at all.

    I brought this up to the manager and he said “Oh the server should have told you 20% gratuity is already included. I’m sorry, I will talk to her” and then he turns around and doesn’t do or say anything to the server.

    Absolutely disgraceful. This restaurant take FULL advantage of all of their guests. We will never eat here again after getting conned into tipping 40% on the bill. You people should be ashamed of the way you conduct your business. Disgusting.

    The automatic %20 gratuity to your bill is a pretty serious stretch. I went by myself received below average service and spent over $100 just for me. I spend less that that alone at rappahanock and bookbinders and places similar. The food and tequila selection is great but spending %20 on a dice roll as far as service makes me highly reluctant to return.

    I went with a party of five, I ordered the queso and chips with chorizo and came out salty. After taking the plate away, the waiter took forever to come back and find out what I would like to order instead. When the waiter finally came back and to my order, and everyone and to the table had already finished half of their meal. By the time my order came everyone finished eating and had already asked for boxes. Despite the awful service and having no compensation, they still felt the need to add gratuity to my check so I could didn’t even show my displeasure at the service. I won’t be going back. At least not to the Canal Walk location

    I came today after a relatives lost straight from the burial and was going through a difficult time, until a waiter by the name of badhan sat down with a total stranger, although I still had alot on my mind, he was able to see that and had surprised me with a question on why I seemed so down and in an odd way was something I needed. Overall I just felt like I needed to leave him a good review.

    We had a great time at Casa Del Barco – Canal Walk on Saturday, 1/28/23. Our son and his friend group chose Casa Del Barco for their homecoming dinner spot and since they needed a driver some of us parents had dinner and drinks (not the driver) at the bar while the kids enjoyed their meal in the dining room.

    Zach was our bartender and took great care of us. I highly recommend the ‘Why Not’ if you are looking for a subtly awesome cocktail. Food was terrific as always and service for us at the bar and kids in the dining room was top notch.

    Great job Zach and all the staff at Casa Del Barco – Canal Walk!

    Truly the worst restaurant experience I’ve ever had. Server came out within about 5 mins to bring us waters and get our drink/appetizer order. We ordered margaritas and chips & queso and waited 20-25 minutes just to get those. While we waited for those we placed an order through the toast tab website (which we were instructed to do) for our entrees. After waiting over an hour for our entrees we were finally able to get a different server, since ours wasn’t around, to check on our order. Another employee then came by and asked us if we still wanted the entrees and wasn’t sure what had happened with our food. We asked to just cancel the order though since it had been so long. They voided out the entrees we never received, but the margaritas we ordered were not priced correctly on toast tab (50% off for National Margarita Day). Our server never came back, so we asked about the discrepancy on the bill to a different server since we just wanted to pay the bill and leave. He said he’d get our server to fix the issue. Our original server finally returned and fixed the bill. I asked for a paper receipt since I didn’t trust them to bill me correctly, but she never returned with it, so we just left.
    So in the end we spent close to two hours there and had just one round of drinks and chips & queso. They did apologize for the mixup, but never did anything to make it right. The icing on the cake was that we were charged an automatic 20% gratuity on the bill. Will definitely never return and would never recommend this place to anyone, which is unfortunate because the drinks and appetizer we did eventually get were pretty good.

    Sadly disappointing experience. Went there with a group of coworkers for lunch.

    The service was slow. The server told us we could order directly with him or via the QR code. We ordered appetizers with him but opted to place our entrees using the code. Around the time we were wondering where our entrees were, he came over to take our orders. We explained we had already ordered and he went inside to check on our order.

    The food came out approx 15 minutes LATER and everyone’s food was cold. The sizzling fajitas were anything but. We had a good laugh because the server told us to watch out because they were placing a hot plate in front of us. Seconds later, folks were placing their finger tips on the “hot” metal and realizing how “not sizzling” it was.

    I’ve been here before to dine in and didn’t have an experience this bad. Perhaps this isn’t the best place to go for lunch mid-week.

    Shrimp fajita + two Elotes + one frozen margarita = $50.31

    Everything was EXTREMELY salty. I’ve never tasted beans and veggies that were so salty.
    The elote 🌽 was lacking elote-ness. Like there was only cheese on one side.

    The margarita was 100% great. So all in all, as other people mentioned, this place seems like a great place for drinks. The food is what you should expect from your typical Mexican franchise restaurant.

    If you’re looking for authentic Latin cuisine, I would look into more of the smaller mom and pop style businesses in the area.

    Nice location and staff was friendly. Service was good. Started with the 3 amigo chips appetizer. Guacamole was good. Salsa had a strong ketchup taste. Queso was flavored with something that resulted in a different taste. We had fish taco, fish burrito and chicken adobe tacos. Rice and beens were good. All had some type of crema or aioli sauce which detracted from the taste. Just seemed like the menu puts a different spin on the food. Probably would have been better without the cream sauces.

    We had high hopes (nice atmosphere/view) for this restaurant but they were quickly deflated. When the hostess seated us, the first thing she said was that the restaurant has a mandatory 20% service charge. There is even a paragraph about why they include a service charge on the information placard on the table. We were not provided menus or water and never greeted by a server. We started looking around no one had food and cups were empty. After 10 min of no service we decided to walk to CHICANO’s COCINA where we were welcomed immediately and had chips salsa and margaritas within 5 mins!

    I’ve given this restaurant 2 chances and I won’t be going back. I’ve lived in Texas and California. Just moved here from San Diego and it’s really sad to see that Mexican/Hispanic restaurants here in Virginia think their food tastes authentic…not even close! The 2 Al Pastor Tacos ($12) were terrible, had absolutely no flavor, didn’t taste fresh and the Mexican Rice ($5) tasted like rice out of a box. Going to Taco Bell would’ve been a better option.

    During January 2023 after the recent launch of the brunch menu and service at Casa Del Barco, they were offering 50% off the entire menu for the first hour of service which got us interested enough to come back in. We had been several times for dinner a few years back but it had been a while.

    We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the food we ordered. The items we ordered were thoughtfully composed and well executed. The flavors of each ingredient on the dishes worked well with one another and left us without a single complaint. Everything was well seasoned and presented as well.

    I will say that I was a little skeptical of french toast at a mexican brunch but it was incredibly flavorful and wonderfully airy in texture. For us it made for a great side dish but it could easily satisfy the light eater or hungry child in your party.

    I plan to return to check out the brunch omelette as it was highly recommended by our server! 5/5 dining experience today!

    We stayed in Richmond for one night and decided to order take-out from Casa Del Barca. We ordered the Casa Crunch Burrito and the Casa Rice and Bean Bowl. Both of the entrees were barely edible. The rice tasted like it was scraped from the floor. This experience may be a fluke, but this was not an acceptable product.

  432. Seth Albright 2022/11

    Michelle, our server, was great. The food was great. I am a little disturbed by a trend I am seeing lately of getting rid of hand held menus, especially as at checkout there was a 20% service fee for the QR code service that I guess streamlines the whole thing. While I am a big fan of integrating new tech to the dining experience, my thoughts were always that this would be intended to make a server’s job (extremely difficult to do well, contrary to what many believe) easier and more sustainable as a long term occupation. Instead, I have no idea if the server sees any of the ‘service fee’ (I tipped anyway, but only 15%, which under other circumstances would be considered me insulting the service). I worked in bars and restaurants for over 10 years, and the extra service fee for a convenience which seems to take additional overhead off the ownership and more money in their pockets potentially at the expense of their servers makes me cringe. Maybe I’m wrong. Anyway, Michelle was great.

  433. Zac Moretz 2022/11

    Food was good, not great, but they make you order and pay totally on your phone. No printed menus even upon request, and no one to take your order. So you don’t really have a waiter, just more of an attendant that checks on you occasionally. Yet they still add a 20% service fee automatically. And then you’re staring at your phone and trying to type in your credit card number on your little phone keyboard instead of talking with your dinner companions like you should be. Bottom line, mildly interesting food but totally disinterested staff.

One of the servers informed me that if you finish off a bottle of liquor with your order you can draw on the bottle and hang on the ceiling. This was a great experience for our very antsy 3 year old, he enjoyed playing with the markers. Definitely will come again. Thank you Michelle!

    I’d rate it 10/5 for the empanadas alone. I honestly asked the server if I could go see how they made such a flakey and yet delicate crust. They told me I could ask the manager but I chickened out. Honestly though, the empanadas are divine. I didn’t know they could taste like that. I can’t wait for my next trip to Richmond to try them again (and maybe even learn how they’re made)!

    Was really disappointed by Casa Del Barco during my last visit. They are now using an online ordering system via cell phone. There’s not an easy way to spilt your bill (we were concerned and mentioned this to our server who said they’d split it at the end of the night for us). I went with a friend and instead we were both charged the entire amount of the bill ($90). I called to speak to a manager and resolve this – twice – both times they were “in a meeting and would call me back” and I have yet to receive any contact from them. Also, during our visit, they completely forgot one of our entrees and we were told it would be taken off. Of course it wasn’t, and we both had to pay the entire bill, basically paid $45 extra dollars each. CDB used to be great. But after this experience I just can’t recommend it anymore. It obvious that they don’t care about their customers or correcting their mistakes.

    Alyssa Blake of the Canal walk is an absolute joy. Attentive and funny, just a fantastic bartender overall, love coming here to get drinks and enjoy the downtown atmosphere.

    So my boyfriend and I were gifted gift cards to here and Boathouse. I want to clarify that the staff was AWESOME. The restaurant is nicely decorated. I’m not sure how I feel about the online ordering system, so I’m not letting my rating be influenced by that.

    What was not so awesome was the food. It was incredibly bland. We ordered the carne asada burrito and Baja fish tacos. I honestly don’t know how else to describe the experience other than the fact that we were just eating food. There wasn’t any flavor, and the tacos were soaked from the amount of tomatoes put on them. I actually laughed when I tried my rice and beans because that had more flavor than the main dishes. We were both extremely disappointed with our meals. Again, staff was amazing. Beautiful area and restaurant. But the food we received was subpar. For the amount we paid, it wasn’t worth it.

    My friends and I decided to come dine in and eat at the Casa Del Barco on the Canal wall. We have Michelle as our server. She was fabulous. She was very attentive and made sure everything turned out great and nothing was missing. And like always the food was amazing. We definitely enjoyed ourselves. I will say one downside of it is the paying process. It was a bit of a pain but the manager came up and helped some of us make sure we all of check were straight and paid for

    I loved this place as soon as we walked in and saw the tequila bottles everywhere. What a creative way to reuse old bottles and make people want to drink at the same time. Our server was awesome, our cocktails were strong and delicious, and we haven’t stopped thinking about the crispy barbacoa tacos. We had seven different tacos and they were all good, but the barbacoa blew the rest of them out of the water. Do your taste buds a solid and order them.

    Great atmosphere. Very friendly helpful staff. The food was a step above chain Mexican restaurants but could have been much better. my meal and app arrived at the same time the app (empanadas) was very good and temp hot my entree Chicken Enchiladas were lukewarm the rice and beans were ice cold. No drama when I asked them to heat. It. I would go again but just for drinks apps and atmosphere.

    Absolutely Date Night Spot For Real! With the pandemic, we have not been going out. We took a leap, went early, and had a good time. First, all service staff is fantastic whether you are looking for the restroom or extra napkins. I understand why changes are made, but the ordering on the phone was challenging. When it is your first time at an establishment, personal reassurance makes your choices more straightforward and quicker. The online ordering site does add a 20% fee, but when I know their employees are making a fair wage, I am just fine paying the fee. If you aren’t willing to pay the fee, this kind of experience is not for you. When employees are satisfied, their performance reflects that everyone was doing something that benefited the team. If you follow the parking instructions on the website, it will be smooth sailing. Overall we will be back with a few changes.

  476. Emily Termini 2022/09

    The new menu change is ridiculous. The waiters hardly interact with the customers now you have to do all the digital work and they take a 20% tip regardless of how service really is. The food portions are small the flavor is VERY white washed and weak. (I used to live on the Mexico border and this is NOT good mexican food) this place has a beautiful aesthetic but other than that the whole experience was garbage. Places like this are whats wrong with the food industry. Never giving them my service ever again and In no way will I ever recommend this place to a friend.

  477. Stephanie Wilson 2022/09

    Zach was an excellent server! Very attentive and sweet. Checked on us often and we never had an empty dish on the table for more than a few minutes. 🙂

  478. Megan Ratliff 2022/09

    45 minute wait despite the overwhelming majority of their outside seating being available. Told by host they needed time to let their kitchen “catch up” after asking if we were coming from a postponed concert on Brown’s Island– made it seem like they were turning away people from the concert. Not a huge deal, but not exactly inviting.

    This was my first time going to Casa Del Barco. I have always heard great things but never got around to going until the other day. I am a bar girl so when it comes to a Bar Imma sit by it lol. Our Bartender was Natalie, she was the sweetest. Natalie was soft-spoken but very friendly and attentive to our needs. I love margaritas so, she recommended that I try the Smokey Mezcal Margarita. It was so different from anything I’ve ever tried and I loved it. Our food was delicious as well. Coming back again and I hope to get Natalie again as well. I loved the atmosphere also !! 10/10 highly recommend it.

    We had dinner here on a Thursday night. Without a reservation we were quickly seated on the patio overlooking the canal. They do require you to scan a QR code to see their menu – a trend that we personally do not care for at all. Going over a well done menu is part of the dining experience and this takes that away as everyone is staring at their phones. On the other hand, this does allow you to send orders directly to the kitchen rather than waiting for a waiter to come by so you can order another drink.

    We started with the 3 Amigos appetizer. Salsa, guac and queso with chips. The chips were good and plentiful. The salsa was ok at best, nothing special. The guac lacked flavor – a theme we would see continue throughout the meal. The queso however was excellent. Perfect consistency and very interesting flavors. There was none left in the bowl.

    For dinner I had the Baja Fish Tacos, she had the Carne Asada Burrito. I am a huge fan of fish tacos but these were a big disappointment. The fish was cooked properly but the batter was flavorless. I believe the jalapeno had been left out of the jalapeno crema. The only flavor present was from the cabbage.

    Her steak burrito was similarly disappointing. The steak was tough and overcooked and apparently had only been passed over the marinade. She nibbled on it a bit, but most of it remained on the plate when we left.

    Casa Del Barco is a beautiful, fun place, and a unique location in Richmond. There is however, much better Mexican food to be had in Richmond. I do have to give them kudos for one thing – a 20% service charge is added to every meal to ensure that the staff is not short changed by people not properly tipping. Every employee we came in contact was friendly, professional and efficient.

She made sure I had everything I needed and even listen to me when I was being a little difficult lol . Definitely 10 out of 10

    James was incredibly friendly, intuitive, and treated us like we were the most special patrons ever!

    was a light crowd, nothing too excessive. The chips & guac were brought out to us first, they were hot & the guac seasoned very well. Our bartender, Jasmine, did an amazing job ensuring we were well taken care of, and Joe, the manager was very friendly and accommodating as well. Our food was satisfying and fresh, as expected and the wait wasn’t long at all. Definitely will be a repeat visit! I love it here! <3 SweetPea

    Been coming here for years and have always loved it. Lately, customer service has SIGNIFICANTLY gone down hill – especially since they implemented the baked in 20% tip (been a hit or miss depending on our server – sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad). What really annoys me is they took away the parking validation at the downtown location (it’s still advertised on their website lol) and one host told me I’d get reimbursed for the parking then the next host told me that’s a lie they don’t reimburse anyone. Like what?? Are they telling their employees different things?? Additionally at this same visit, my waiter never checked on me either, I had to constantly wave him down. Just terrible customer service – it’s a shame since the food and drinks are typically good but will be taking my business elsewhere going forward.

    I picked up a to-go order here and had a margarita at the bar. There was a 15% “service fee” (tip) added to my TO-GO order…what? The marg also had an automatic 20% tip added onto it, and ended up being almost $20 for an 8 oz drink. (I usually tip 20% anyways assuming the service is good, but that should be a choice, not a requirement. I could understand 15% for dine in and then the option to add on more if you wanted). The food was good, but definitely way overpriced for what it was.

    Location was good but it feels so distanced from the rest of the action within the city.

    The environment seemed quite chaotic and after sitting at the bar for a bit I would also say a bit disorganized. Yes, they have a very large bar, which would seem a necessity when the table wait is roughly 45 minutes. Just like most other Mexican restaurants, the wine selection here is not worth entertaining, a mixed drink would be the way to go.

    The ambient sound really bounces around in this very large dining room, I would have preferred the outdoor dining area. They have a self-ordering system, although I am not sure how I feel about that, it seems to have some benefits.

    The food was well prepared and had good flavor, I would say it was comparable to most other Mexican restaurants, especially the chips and salsa. At the end of the night, I found the price point on the high end.
    Cheers!

    Tried out the Casa Del Barco on Canal Walk and was amazed! The atmosphere is great, along with the food and service! We were greeted by the nice host and sat immidiately upon arrival. We started with the Queso which is a great size portion and was very delicious! I got the beef barbacoa tacos and my friend got the fish and adobo chicken both were great! My server Amari recommended the blackberry basil margarita which was very tasty! He was an amazing server and helped us enjoy this experience, very personable, quick and charming!

    Service was poor. We take our own order by phone and have to pay 20% service change. Don’t really care about having to pay because I usually tip about this much but them doing this just makes the servers and bartenders care less. Servers bring my girlfriend a togo box but doesn’t know how a interrupt the conversation by saying excuse me or anything just forcefully puts it in front of my girlfriend and smacks her with it to try to get her attention. Corn was good and AL Pastor was alright. But yeah bartender wasn’t even around right to make drinks right away. How can you server food before giving us drinks. But I guess that’s just my take on restaurants are run just 17 years experience in the wrong places. Yes I’ll be back again…

    Beautiful setting on the canal whether you eat on the patio or inside the cavernous old building. Sadly, atmosphere is the only thing good about the restaurant.

    My enchiladas were bone dry and the flavorless orange-died rice was typical of a 1970s Tex Mex dive. The $18 price was steep for mediocre food, even more so with the automatic 20 percent gratuity added with a credit card when completing a required up-front order.

    That automatic gratuity might be acceptable if the service had not been abysmal. Don’t expect to see your server more than once, and expect to go hunting for someone when you need something (e.g to actually have silverware to eat with.)

    This place could be great. Sadly, it isn’t even okay. If you decide to come here, keep it simple and order at the bar.

The drinks in my opinion are a little over priced for the size however they are not using a mix which makes the drinks stronger(my opinion). Food was amazing. I had the steak fajitas and my friend had the barbacoa taco plate. Rice was severely over cooked. Black beans were good and the avocado was fresh. Chips and cheese with chorizo was outstanding. They have a self order style menu. You can place your order and add things without waiting for a server if you’d like so that was nice. There is a 20% service fee automatically added to any bill ( party size does not matter) but this was explained by the host as soon as a we sat down so it wasn’t a surprise. They even have me a birthday card when I was leaving. Only took away one star just due to the overpriced drinks. Definitely will return again.

    This spot was my (now) husbands and mine first date spot back in 2015.

    Recommend avoiding this place. As others have mentioned, you cannot order with a server. You *must* use their QR code on the table just to review their menu and to order (and to later pay the bill–effectively cutting out 50% or more of a server’s job). This of course has the extra effect of difficulty in asking anyone questions about the menu items. But from the way this place is run, it’s pretty obvious the owner isn’t focused on a customer experience.

    The prices are absurd for a meal that is decent (hence 2 stars), but certainly not worth the price. The 20% gratuity added onto every tab is insanity, when the server sees you twice: 1 time to tell you that you can’t order with her (since you have to use the QR code on your phone), and a 2nd time to deliver food. No chips, no salsa, either. Might be a minor thing, but it just adds to the question as to what you’re paying for and why you’re paying that extra 20%. I’m happy to tip servers what they deserve, even 50-100% of the bill for stellar service. But these servers literally do a fraction of what every other RVA server does. Once the meal came, too, we never saw our server again, either.

    There is no scenario where this place can justify the cost of its meal, let alone charge every customer 20% on every ticket when a server does nothing more than bring you the meal since they can’t even bring you a menu or take your order.

    If the owner cares so much about his staff’s wages, he should dip into his own revenue instead. By dumping this off on the customer, all he’s doing is encouraging us to go someplace where the food and service are worth it. This place isn’t it.

    This past weekend my husband and I drove into to the city and stumbled upon Casa Del Barco. It had a great atmosphere, the restaurant was a little busy and we didn’t have to wait too long for a table. My husband and I had questions about the menu because it was our first time there and Natalie was the BEST!!! She was very sweet and had great customer service and was also very knowledgeable about the menu! I ended up getting the slow roasted pork empanadas and my husband got the Carne Asada and it was great! We’ll definitely be back and already told some friends about it!

  550. Christopher Mills 2022/07

    The perfect location for a quick bite of lunch and a drink for anybody exploring the historic river and canal system in downtown Richmond. The staff are always friendly – particularly Alyssa who runs the bar (whenever we’ve been there – typically Sunday lunchtime) – and there’s a wide range of drinks and delicious food. The outside seating area is currently being renovated – but don’t let that put you off. Go on in and grab a beer and a taco – what’s not to like…!

  551. Chris Collins 2022/07

    Our server Avani was attentive, professional, and quick. The ambience of Casa Del Barco is delightful, and a margarita on the porch after strolling the canal is delightful.

    The food can be bland, but finding the few menu items that shine make for a great happy hour (lookin at you chips n queso).

    TL;DR: delicious food, solid drinks, shout-out to our server Joseph, you should check it out.

    My wife and I dropped in here after a short stroll down the canal/river walk area and we had a great experience. Joseph was our server and he was attentive and thoughtful. The entire staff seemed to collaborate well.

    The drinks were delicious — I had a “naked and famous” Cocktail to start while she had a watermelon margarita. Of course I had to try hers as well and it was delicious and refreshing. The naked and famous was also an amazing cocktail with a lot of complexity. For my second cocktail I had the mezcal margarita which felt a little overpriced (the cheapest was $16.50) but it was tasty at least.

    Food — we had the nachos, barbacoa crispy tacos, and a side salad. The nachos were massive and the cheese was fu****g amazing. It was like some kind of homemade chipotle cheese sauce that I could’ve pretty much bathed in. The barbacoa tacos had a massive amount of meat so if you’re a meat lover, those are for you.

    Overall a great experience. I’m not sure why they only have 3.5 stars but We had a good experience overall. I’d recommend to anyone looking for a decent casual dining experience.

    If you’re in Richmond, by the canal, and want a place to eat, Casa Del Barco has refound its quality. They are now again offering their full menu, with many great options, including my favorite Mushroom Taco.

    Casa Del Barco has a great reputation for its Margaritas, having some really fun and incentive flavors.

    They have also introduced a to-go counter outside the restaurant and completely remodeled their patio. The renovations look great!

    They are still struggling to deliver on the combination of wait staff and QR-code based ordering systems. We were only seen by our waitress once at the beginning of our meal and when the food was delivered.

    I’ve given this place 3 chance and each has been more disappointing than the last. The food is underwhelming and overpriced. The chips (and most of the entrees) are loaded with grease and no flavor. The service we had last night was by far the worst I’ve ever had at any restaurant. We had a reservation and still waited an hour and a half for our food to come out. The wait staff almost never came by and they never acknowledged how long we’d been waiting. After all this there was a 20% auto gratuity added to the tab – for what service?!? The drinks were also absurdly sour and overpriced. Would never recommend this place to anyone- they’re only popular because of the location being on the canal.

Keep in mind that this is my very first time coming here only because I wanted to come out and support my sister. If you ever just want to get a drink or food the people you need to have around so if you want to talk to talk are Natalie, Jasmine, CJ, Fiona, Aaron. These individuals are great to talk to and chill with if you just need someone to talk to. In saying all this if the people that I just mentioned read this, thank you.

    Not impressed at all! Over priced entrees, desserts and alcohol beverages.
    The chef/cooks needs to revist culinary school if they even went!
    We were forced to order from our phones which was confusing and stressful! When asked if we could look at a menu our service told us “this isn’t old school”
    Really!!!
    When our drinks arrived they were someone else’s, and not even what we ordered…we had to wait twenty minutes for ours.
    The portions for the Fish Tacos were the size of one fishstick per Taco. Extra small size of salsa, flour tortilla was small, hard, and cold. Our son’s entree was missing his tortillas, no sour cream and the rice was very dry and cold!
    My entree had too much Cumin and th steak inside my burrito was cold.
    Yes, I/we complained!
    Our waitress barley apologized and made excuses!

    This restaurant is a home run. The food is as authentic as it gets in the USA. Soooo good. The manager told us that they send their cooks to Mexico for inspiration and recipes, and you can definitely tell! My partner and I are vegetarian and gluten free, and there were many options for us on the menu. The mushroom tacos are a must, even if you are a meat eater. They were incredible!
    The servers were attentive, kind, and helpful. The food was delivered to us extremely quickly. We were checked on by two managers during our meal to ensure that we were having a positive experience.
    We will definitely be returning to Casa Del Barco, especially once they complete their outdoor dining area as the restaurant is located right on the canal!

    Dinner and atmosphere was great! We ordered more than the average two person party because we came here to EAT EAT. We had the 3 Amigos guacamole, queso w/ unlimited tortilla chips & salsa as the appetizer. Our favorite of the three was hands down the Queso. My husband could not get enough of it. I had the Crispy Barbacoa Tacos served in corn tortillas filled with tender FLAVORFUL braised brisket, jack cheese, pickled red onion, cilantro, beef consommé. Served with a side of Mexican rice and beans. It was more than enough food for me because the chips and dip had already filled me up. My husband was REALLY hungry, he had Carne Asada Burrito: citrus herb marinated beef, Mexican rice, black beans, jack cheese, shredded lettuce, pico de gallo, smothered in queso. IT WAS DELICIOUS obviously I tried ALL his food even though I was full. He also had the Baja Fish Tacos with beer battered mahi, shredded cabbage, pico de gallo, jalapeno crema, cilantro, flour tortilla with Mexican rice and black beans. The fish was crispy and perfectly seasoned. He also had a side of maduros (sweet plantains) they were made to perfection not over or undercooked. We both had the Michelada Tradicional, the house michelada base with clamato and a whole bottle of corona extra served in a mug with your choice of rim seasoning and a tamarind candy stick. It was definitely enough to make your bones warm up. The Tamarind candy was sweet, spicy and a little sour a nice treat before after or during eating. We would definitely come back here if we are ever back in Richmond, VA.

    Atmosphere was great! Music was good! This place was a really good vibes! The decor was very detailed which set the vibes throughout the entire restaurant! The restaurant is on the river walk; going at dusk gives for a great walk with awesome views and street art! Sat at the bar to eat. Drinks are made fresh with no artificial mixtures! The bartender was really helpful with drink ordering(I’m very picky). I got a passion fruit Margarita which was amazing and perfectly made.The food was absolutely delicious! We got the three amigos for an app, mix and match tacos for entrée (the fish taco was perfection) also got the Al Pastor tacos which were amazing the grilled pineapple was everything! We also got the chocolate stuffed churros and tres Leches cake to go both sooo delicious! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

    Yes, I am being petty by giving this place a 1 star rating; but I want to make a point: if a restaurant is going to add an automatic 20% gratuity to every bill – regardless of whether it’s a party of 8 or more or a party of one – they had better earn every penny of that 20%. It is arrogant and assumptive to say, “We know we are going to provide such an exemplary experience that we will decide for you that we are automatically worth an extra 20%.”

    I had to ask for tableware well after our food was brought…

    Ordinarily, no big deal. But that doesn’t really speak to an exemplary experience worthy of the automatic 20%…

    And given that we were there after the lunch rush, I would have expected a bit more than cursory, perfunctory attention. But, no.

    Add to that the ability to go touchless in both ordering and paying is even more of a slap to an seasoned diner that appreciates a complete experience.

    If your business model requires this for your survival, either raise your prices, call this “gratuity” something else, or invest in making sure your people can deliver the whole enchilada.

    One of the best happy hours in RVA! New outdoor patio and bar are fantastic additions; highly recommend grabbing a drink to-go and strolling along the canal. Margs are always great (add the Grand Marnier float; trust me). We love the nachos with carne asada (usually more than enough for 3-4 to split), and tres amigos apps. Both delicious! Great place to bring out-of-towners, go on a date, or spend a warm evening with friends by the water.

    UPDATE: Editing my review because for some reason, Casa decided to take away their happy hour out on the patio – which was literally the GREATEST aspect of Casa Canal Walk. HH is only at the bar now. Honestly, cannot express how sad that makes the many, many RVA natives for whom Friday (or any other day of the week) happy hours outside on the Casa patio spark joy. Please please bring it back! Otherwise – I see people like us frequenting Casa less often. Thanks for considering 🙂

    Paying a service fee for table service was a nasty surprise. The idea of ordering from the table via a QR code was fine, but then being hit with a 20% service charge for using Toasttab was annoying. The food and service were good, the location was great, but not worth a 20% premium

  616. Dominique Maddux-Jackson 2022/05

    The food is good and they have a lot of gf options which is great for me. Guac is average but the question is great! You have to order your food using your phone, which is a little overwhelming. Aside from that it was a good experience, I’d def go back. Be prepared to pay for parking.

    Went here originally and loved the food but after the second time and having a huge disruption of a family dinner due to their technology, I have to change it. I always tip servers but was shocked that they have an automatically applied percent tip and you order mostly on your phone (problematic if you don’t have good wifi or a low battery) and I was with a big group but we had to put our orders in two different group orders on phones. This was so frustrating. Especially since the servers are barely even needed.

    I understand this technology makes work easier for the waiters but it makes it awful for customers. My family and I took maybe half an hour to order because people were drinking and trying to enjoy themselves but we were trying to figure out our orders on two different group orders and couldn’t combine them…the food again is really good but I don’t think I’ll go here again.

    I am a millennial but I actually like to turn my phone off and enjoy dinner with friends and family without being on a screen. Even my gen z cousin who is constantly on her phone hated the forced QR code group order thing. Also what do you do if your phone is dead, wifi doesn’t work, or you don’t have data? This restaurant seriously needs to reconsider how frustrating and idiotic their system is.

    This place used to be a great to bring groups of friends to or a date and have a great night. Their new ordering system through QR code has completely eliminated any level of service or positive dining experience. Drinks took forever and we elected to go elsewhere for food.

    Love the atmosphere, love the food, and loved the service. This was a place I used to highly recommend for friends/family coming from out of town.

    What changed that is this business’s practices regarding tips and service fees.

    I typically tip 20% for average service. When we went to pay, we saw a service charge. We were unable to clarify if this service charge went entirely to my server or if the business just pocketed it. To be safe, we tipped 20% to ensure we didn’t stiff the server.

    I’ve now learned from an employee who shall remain nameless to protect them from reprisal that this service fee DOES NOT go directly to the server.

    I feel deceived to be honest. Had I not effectively tipped twice, my server would not have gotten a tip they deserved for the good service they provided.

    This is 100% the fault of management who implemented this payment/ordering system. I will not be back to any Casa Del Barco or Boat House location because of these deceptive service fees. You are screwing over your staff and they deserve better.

    It was very quiet when we showed up for a late lunch. We ate on the ourside terrace and the food was very good. No printed menus, you access the menu by taking a picture of the QR code on the table with your smartphone. I am all for fair wages, but a mandatory 20% service charge (disclosed on the menu) and then the “suggested tip” amounts on the credit card receipt made me feel uncomfortable since an immediate decision was required in view of the fact that the waiter was at the table with the payment terminal

    Carne asada burrito has tasty beef,spicy sauce,and tasty smothered cream with crumbled fresh cheese.not a fan that they used black beans instead of pinto which is the mexican bean of choice on burritos. Nonstop reggaeton was annoying though and is from the dominican republic not mexico. This place is a Latin place not so much mexican. They had a better rum choice than tequila so ya- not a mexican restaurant but tasty take on latin food. Service is good if you’re a regular, I was somewhat alienated since it was my first time as they serve my food minus the silverware to eat it so I walk to a table to take some.

    Casa – we love y’all… half the time. When things are great, they’re REALLY great, but consistency is currently not your strong suit.

    Most of our orders recently have been very rough around the edges – and it’s usually been with basic things that could be easily corrected if your team could slow down and review the details.

    One example – we ordered some tacos for delivery last night (pictured below). They tasted delish – but the way you’re packaging them for delivery has it so that the contents of the tacos slide over into the other (seen in the picture). Common now, that’s a rookie mistake! Wrap those bad boys up before dropping them in the container!

    Another example from the same meal (also pictured below) – we ordered chips and guacamole to split, but the amount of guacamole we were given for the price was… sparse (putting it nicely). And the avocados were barely mashed up – large chunks of unmashed avocado made it tough to dip and enjoy. Mash those avos up! We’ve had your guacamole in the past and you’ve nailed it both in the quality and quantity department – the trick is nailing it each time!

    We ordered the mushroom empanadas as well – I didn’t take a picture, but the filling was… again – sparse. There was like one piece of mushroom in each empanada! This was the biggest disappoint :[ y’all make some killer empanadas – but again, only half the time.

    The hero of the meal last night were the sweet plantains. We have no issues with those, y’all killed it. Delish.

    I feel like Casa has so much potential to be a GREAT Mexican restaurant – but can never stick the landing on account of problems with inconsistent quality. We believe in y’all – if you could pull it together in the quality assurance department, this would be one of the best spots in town on account of its cool location and great menu.

    This place charges 20% gratuity when you have to order the food yourself and the waiter just brings it to you, service is very low here. Food was over priced and under sized. I ordered the carnae asada fries. It should have been called fries with a little bit of beef and lots of filler. It’s obvious that this place is for profit and that’s it. Would not dine here again.

    It’s not often we have a dining experience that leaves us wishing we’d gone somewhere else. Sadly this was one of those moments. We were greeted about 10 minutes after we sat at bar. Ordered chips and salsa and had to ask 2 times for them.. 20 minutes later. Took 45 minutes for tacos which arrived cold, with no eating utensils. Waited again for those. The bar tender was attending to bar patrons ignored us like the plague while attending to patrons on our left and right like they were old friends. I’ll leave that alone for now and just say for whatever reason she decided in an hour to never once make eye contact. Pathetic display of service. Overall I’d consider this one of the worst experiences we have had and wounding return even if they comped us all items. Need serious changes.

    All orders (at least at the bar) are done with the toast app. So your bill will have the added 20% service fee.

    My favorite thing about going to Casa Del Barco is the bartenders, drinks/food, and staff. It has been abundantly clear that they are a family, and I feel so lucky to feel like a part of a restaurant family every time I walk in! The service, in general, is top-shelf, and the drinks are always beyond my expectations.

    I have gotten to know Alyssa, who is behind the bar, for a better part of a year, and every time I walk in, I know she will have a smile on her face and always makes my day. On the days that Alyssa isn’t working, I feel fortunate to have Amanda helping me out. She is excellent about always asking about my life, and I feel like I know her and Alyssa personally now, just by frequenting the restaurant. They always go above and beyond and do a great job, ensuring that their customers are happy.

    I could write a novel with praise, but you will have to experience it yourself. I cannot recommend Casa Del Barco enough and look forward to seeing what their future holds.

    My wife and I had a wonderful experience going to watch the women’s Euro Cup the other day. The food and the service were fantastic! They had 4 large screens for all your soccer viewing pleasure too! Javier one of the managers there was so kind and was great to chat with about soccer! We are looking forward to seeing more soccer here!!!! If you are looking for a great space to watch some soccer, futbol, calcio, this will be your place to GOAL!!!!!!!!!!!

    i walked in after a long day of single momming and the bartender, Miss Jasmine was super receptive -despite having her own long day (working here as her 2nd job, showing up after her 1st)

    she proceeded to make me the most BANGiNG and extra delicious margarita i’ve had in quite some time (passion fruit flavor, salt AND sugared rim plus tons of frothy goodness = her suggestion and a nice one and done drink)

    anyway, as i waited (briefly) for my takeout, i enjoyed her margarita thoroughly and she even bought it for me ! aw —

    total day maker

    on to the food, i got the tres amigos dipz (their salsa, guac + queso) – OH MY YUM, a party for ur mouth; just saying, this is every chip & dip lover’s DREAM

    i really came for the EMPANADAS though, the true show stoppers.. who ALWAYS deliver – a bunch of flaky, crispy, pastry goodness with that authentic, Latina touch of flavor on the inner bakings (u can get chicken, pork and/OR mushroom, hint: mix & match)

    a worthy investment should ur hunger lead you to treating yourself to a true, South American delight

    I came here to celebrate my one year anniversary with my girlfriend and this place exceeded all expectations. The food was beyond amazing and the service was exceptional. Blake was very kind and made sure we had all we needed and that the food was nothing less than the best and Joe (I believe one of the managers) was also very kind and stoped to check on not only us but the other tables around. They also gave us a happy anniversary card which they went out of their way to do. Best food and customer service around.

    Online ordering only, you have to give them your cell phone number to order, and they still have the nerve to charge mandatory 20% gratuity without full service wait staff. If I’m basically eating in a cafeteria, why the mandatory gratuity? Feels more like eating at Panera Bread or Taco Bell than a real restaurant…

    I won’t be returning to this restaurant. There are much better options in Richmond for the money.

    Update: LOL, I guess they’ve been getting so many bad reviews that they’ve been adding their own five star reviews. To the owners: If you’re going to post multiple fake reviews from different accounts, at least be smart enough not to use the same stock photos in each review.

Flawless experience overall, I will definitely be returning soon!

The food was delicious (mostly Mexican) and the price is reasonable ($55 for 2). I recommend the fried plantains as an appetizer. Last but not least, alcoholic drinks are a little expensive but good options. I recommend this restaurant and I’d go back no doubt!

    Not quality food. Service was bad… getting orders wrong repeatedly, slow, incorrect billing. Don’t like the fact that they automatically charge 20% tip… that’s why customer service is bad… they know they’re getting a tip no matter what. Customer should choose how much they want to tip.

    everytime we come to this place the service is great. Alyssa at the bar is very attentive and aware of her customers and she tries really hard to make sure everyone has a good experience. I appreciate that. Plus, that queso is hard to beat.

  703. Bill Swann 2022/02

    Prior to COVID, Casa Del Barco was one of the best restaurants in town. Great food and in large amounts. During the initial pandemic, we visited a few times just to support them. The food and service definitely suffered as a result but we figured it would recover. We visited a few weeks ago and I was sorely disappointed that the food quality and quantity as well as the service was unchanged. Until I hear that the restaurants has recovered to its pre-pandemic levels, we’ll stay away…which makes me sad as I ALWAYS went to Casa Del Barco on my birthday, which is coming up.

    If you are doing a walk in and there’s a wait save yourself and stay at the bar if you choose to wait there. We had excruciatingly slow service once we were through with our 45 minute wait (originally quoted at 30 mins). The Black lady server (unfortunately didn’t catch her name) was very sweet and attentive and the service was swift and thorough. Once we were sat at the patio it at went down hill. Maria was definitely having an off night and you could tell she was distracted by a table that seemed like it was her friends. She didn’t greet us right away (there was some sort of confusion that would have seemed to be a common since explanation and we witnessed the same interaction with another couple 15 mins later who came from the bar) she pulled up the wrong reservation when she finally came to take out order but had to wait another 5-10 mins. We should have ran but we’re usually patient people. We were forced to order 2 empanadas when they are advised separately as $4 and they literally had ice chips in them (we received a refund) and the order was placed incorrectly forcing us to wait even longer ( we ordered carne asada fajitas and received a burrito) We also received the driest chicken quesadillas that I have ever tasted but at this point I was just ready to go to mention anything else. Overall once we left the bar we should have went out the door. It took almost two hours for this whole ordeal causing us to get stuck in a thunderstorm which is prompting for this review. This first impression was the worst service since the mask mandate was lifted we received. I’m leaving 2 stars for the delicious chicken nachos and the awesome bartender who poured a great margarita.
    Next time we won’t leave the bar if we ever come back.

  712. Amelia Hulth 2022/02

    Was very excited to eat here as we have eaten at the boat house and enjoyed it very much – this meal was the most disappointing we have had in Richmond. We waited 10 minutes to be seated after we were told our table was ready, waited 20 minutes on two beers, waited 55 minutes for one street corn, 65 minutes for tostones (that were missing toppings), and 60 minutes on entrees. The carne asada burrito didn’t have beef in it and the casa bowl was cold, and bland. We had to ask for clean silverware 3 times because the utensils they kept bringing were dirty. The 20% service is a great idea, but the entire experience was disappointing and lacking in customer service. Only good things were the views of the canal walk and dogs on the patio.

    First of all- The food was very good. However-The customer experience was not very enjoyable. Having to order everything from the QR code before anything can be brought to the table is pretty ridiculous. Also if you want to add to your order you have to place a second order with the QR code. Who wants to keep doing that if you want more drinks or any other food? Also the 20% gratuity is fine but the waitress didn’t really do anything except bring the plates to the table since you can’t customize anything through her only order through the QR code. Very aggravating.

  714. Drama World 2022/02

    1. The food is overly salty and lacks flavor. The salsa was gross, and super sweet, the guacamole and cheese dips were too salty to enjoy, and even the drinks were overly strong, in a bad way, like they add extra alcohol to make up for bad quality and flavor. My stomach at the end told me as much and I was forced to sleep it off and wake up hungover at 10pm that night.

    2. They require 20% gratuity and there’s no way of telling who gets the tip. Also no way to avoid this if you’re unhappy with meal / service. So it’s best to consider this the actual price of the food.

    3. I give one star because the wait staff was nice and the place has good atmosphere, but the restaurant should change its menu.

    To summarize, it was like Applebees meats Taco-bell. Ok quality, quick to prepare, but lacking any substance or authenticity.

Despite covering multiple tables, forcing him to bounce around, I never felt like I was being forgotten. Furthermore, in the midst of the chaos, James was still able to maintain a positive attitude from when we walked in to us leaving the restaurant. Someone send me his schedule so I know when to come in again!

    Really wanted this place to be an awesome find. Setting and restaurant are very nice. Service was outstanding. Food looked like it was prepared with care. However…bland. Virtually nothing we ordered had flavor. Chicken fajitas had zero flavor. Beans literally tasted like they opened a can of Goya black beans, heated them up, and spooned them onto my plate. There simply wasn’t any flavor/spice to be found in the food. This was disappointing because there’s so much to like about the restaurant! On a positive note, the watermelon margarita was great, as was my kid’s fries.

    The place looked very nice. I was excited to have a new spot close to my office to go for lunch or happy hours. I ordered to go since it was unexpected last minute decision to grab lunch. After I ordered my food it was was $20 for 3 tacos (that was served with only meat and cheese….where are all the other toppings? Cilantro and onion is minimum expectation) with rice and beans. They didn’t even have refried beans, so I got a double order of rice. The food tasted like it was heated up leftovers, lacked quality and flavor. Extremely disappointed. If the food was actually good I wouldn’t have mind paying a premium for food from a restaurant on the canal. Sat at the bar and had a beer during the wait and even the drinks were like concert venue prices. Ran over $30 for 3 tacos, rice, and a beer with taxes, additional carryout fee, and tip. Next tip for them is going to be on improving the quality of the food if you’re going to charge those prices. There’s more to an experience than just the real estate you occupy.

    Overall, the food is overpriced for the quality compared to other restaurants that serve the same type of cuisine. The best thing I had was dessert, and that was the stuffed churros. Highly recommend getting them.

    Staff was great and provided great service.

    They charge you a 20% service charge on top of your bill. Very unclear as to what this is for as it states it’s for operational cost, but then says it’s to pay the staff a living wage. I think that they should pay then a living wage regardless as it’s the cost of running a business.

    The food was delicious. Joseph was knowledgeable and very attentive. The staff was very welcoming to our dog Maxx as we sat on the patio, bringing him a bowl of water and doggie treats. We highly recommend Casa Del Barco – Canal Walk 😁

    Amari was the best server. He interacted well with us and checked in on us a lot. He made my first experience at this restaurant memorable, and I will definitely be coming back.

    It is SO hard to find great service, but let me tell you.. This was a phenomenal experience. From the warm greeting we received from Rebecca to the EXCELLENT table service provided by Joseph and the support staff, everything was cohesive, efficient, and made us feel right at home.

    The food was also great! We got a watermelon margarita, nachos, barbacoa tacos, avocado ceasar side salad, and the “naked and famous” cocktail. Down to the chipotle seasoned cheese on the nachos to the complexity of the cocktails, everything was delicious.

    We sat indoors and enjoyed the air conditioning, but the outdoor patio along the canal walk also looks fun.

    I’d highly recommend coming here. Ask for Joseph!!

    Came in earlier for some drinks and had avani as our server!!! She is the best!! Super personable, energetic, and was quick with service even when it was busy. great food as well- queso is great.

  747. Kristin N 2022/01

    This was my first time visiting. I ordered the chicken fajitas to-go. The food was really bland. For a split second, I was wondering if I had COVID. But then I tasted the sour cream which had a lot flavor for sour cream. Thankfully, I was at home so I could “doctor the food up” with my own seasoning. But when you pay for a dinner, you shouldn’t have to do that.

    I’ll give this place a chance again in the future. It could have been an off night.

  748. Michael Polson 2022/01

    Best mushroom empanadas in town!!! Sitting at the bar is a must and if you have Alyssa as your bartender then you are well taken care of. Also tried the Mexican hot chocolate and donuts featured item and it was amazing! Shout out to the chef. Also the manager Joe stopped by and said hello and really made the overall experience extra special. Will be coming back for soon for sure! Thanks Alyssa!

  749. Sunethra Ramkumar 2022/01

    I love coming here to eat! There’s usually 0 wait for walk-in and it’s easy to make reservations! The food and drinks are always really good and the last time I came to eat I had the sweetest server named Dania! She helped me pick something out to eat, which was amazing, and came and checked on us every couple minutes! Would definitely recommend coming here!

    The place has a nice aesthetic, but the food isn’t it. The salsa is straight marinara with cilantro & nothing else. The Mexican corn appetizer is the strangest thing.. You get one cob for the whole table. They expect a family, group of friends, or first date to have to bite off the same cob? 😭😂 All the other food is incredibly dry.

    Celebrated our anniversary tonight and Casa del Barco was just as great as it was for our rehearsal dinner seven years ago! Delicious food, great atmosphere, and excellent service from Michelle, who was friendly, helpful, and attentive. The Staff was sensitive to our need to find a quieter table, which was much appreciated. All in all, a great experience.

    So so dining experience. I have yet to order something I’d really want to order again. Last time I ate there I had the kale salad and several of the kale leaves were yellow.

    I was glad they were open on Sunday afternoon.

  761. Alicia Alvarez 2021/12

    Maria and Natalie are the best staff at casa! Natalie was so sweet and helpful and Maria made it the best experience possible as our server. She’s really hot too

  762. Esteban Martinez 2021/12

    Advertises itself as a tequileria but the bartender def had to look up a oaxacan old fashioned. Drinks are way over priced for their spirits an old fashioned with Woodford costs $16 most bars would sell the same drink for $13. I normally don’t have an issue with gratuity however it feels like robbery considering the price point of the items. I wish I could say the service was bad but there was literally no service so I guess that’s why they need the gratuity. All in all, save your money and don’t come here there’s plenty of great places in the city with a way better quality experience for wayyy less money

    All dining in orders must be placed online using a QR code. The process worked fine, but I prefer a server. Margarita was excellent. Staff were all very friendly.

    Outside seating along the cabal was nice. Ordering and payment is all through 3rd party app and charges you 20% service fee then asks for additional tip as well even though server only brings your food. No silverware brought with food and 2 things we asked for were not brought until we asked a second time.

    This location is the best! Great, colorful atmosphere, located on Richmond’s historic river canal, and wonderful service. Alyssa, at the bar, greets us each time as if we are old friends; great conversation, very knowledgeable……and always a smile. Perfect.

  770. Itz Fincky 2021/12

    Went here Friday with my girlfriend for a quick bite. Bar was clean and Misch came right away. She makes a mean house margarita, it was really good, we both had two. Ordered nachos with chorizo, and I was surprised by the portion size, definitely big enough for the both of us. Misch was friendly, and super nice to us. Also explained the whole deal with the bottles and I think that’s totally cool. Will come again next time for more drinks! Hopefully Misch is there, girlfriend and I enjoyed her!

  771. Sean Green 2021/12

    Not good at all. Tea was bitter and cloudy. Tacos el pastor meat was old, mealy, and soaked in oily residue. Service was sub par. Manager comped drinks which made it a bit more tolerable. Will not go back.

    I’m craving the nachos and casa crunch! Love the atmosphere and service. I came in with my kids, and beforehand we were all having a rough day. Thankfully, our server Natalie, was so patient, kept our drinks filled, and delivers quick. Thanks Natalie for the recommendations and service!

  774. Thomas Fitz 2021/12

    I went there to eat with my son and my brother. Food was good. Electronic ordering and paying bill on phone. They added 20% to the bill automatically. Then you’re prompted to add a tip 0, 5, 10, 15% or custom. I paid another 15% tip before my son realized 20% was already added. My $76 check ended up $116. I don’t think that’s ok. Have gone there many times while visiting my son at VCU. Probably last time today!

  775. Imperio Roman 2021/12

    Stopped by Richmond, VA for lunch and decided to eat at Casa del Barco. The staff is very friendly, easy-going, and efficient. Our server James periodically checked in on us and made sure we were comfortable and enjoying our meal. I would classify the cuisine as tex-mex: hearty, well-served, and well-situated.

    Terrible. Save your hard earned money. They have no hard copy menus. You have to pay to eat their nasty chips and salsa. They automatically add 20% gratuity so your server has no incentive to earn his tips. Our server was awful. 20 min after sitting down still no napkins or utensils on the table. Our food comes. 2 min 3 min 5 min. We’re told there are no clean utensils. They had to wash them. Food is now cold. I’ve has Baja fish tacos all over the country. I sent them back to the kitchen and asked them to remove from our tab along with the 20% gratuity. I cannot stress this enough. EAT SOMEWHERE ELSE.

  777. Ev H 2021/12

    Three of us had different meals, rice & bean bowl, mushroom tacos, & diablo shrimp tacos, all were delicious. The carafe of margaritas was also delicious. Avani, our helper was very pleasant and efficient. She offered us top notch customer service.

  778. Haroon Almadani 2021/12

    In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. But, there are times when a critic truly risks something, that is in the discovery and defense of something new. The world is often unkind to new talent. But, when I find exceptional talent, the reviews start to write themselves. Joseph takes serving to the next level. He presents a perfect blend of kindness, helpfulness, and friendliness. Well done.

    I don’t usually write reviews, but today I feel compelled to. I lived in Richmond for over 10 years, and recently moved across the country. Before leaving, I wanted to get my friends together for a night of food and drinks. I wanted to go somewhere I’d never been before, and ended up choosing Casa. Right away my friends and I were taken by the atmosphere, and the night only got better. The wait was relatively short, and we got a nice large table to accommodate all of us. The entire staff seemed great, but our server Alyssa was amazing! I can’t overstate how thorough, quick, and efficient she was, while still being so friendly and inviting! She got our drink orders, which came and were delicious, before coming back to take our food orders. We got nachos as an appetizer, which were good, even for nachos. I ordered the shrimp tacos, and while they were a bit on the smaller side, they were so tasty. Overall the food was great, the staff is great, and the ambience is perfect for a chill night out. There’s a nice looking outdoor seating area next to the canal that we didn’t take advantage of, as well! I’ll definitely be visiting again the next time I’m in town, and hopefully we can get Alyssa again!

    This restaurant is always a fun place to visit. The decor and atmosphere is amazing! The drinks are well made and the food is decent. I enjoyed my dessert, the chocolate-filled churros with ice cream! I didn’t like their new digital service. When I go out with others, I try my best to stay off of my phone. Their new ordering system forces you to use your phone to order food. I recommend this place for drinks but not for the food.

    So the food looked amazing and the presentation was great. The online ordering makes things super easy when it comes to pay and everything. However, the fish lacked a lot of flavor and was pretty bland overall. The rice and beans didn’t taste very good also very bland. That’s the not the worst part. I went with a group of 7 and all of us who all got different things ended up getting sick. Either the food wasn’t prepared well or someone didn’t clean properly. We got fish, beef,pork and all of us ended up getting sick. What a terrible experience this was. We may have unfortunately been one in a million chance but that fact that ALL of us got sick really says something about the chefs or the restaurants. Unfortunately don’t think we’d be coming back to this place.
