very good food - a little pricey for lunch, but the food was of very good quality. Great atmosphere in a fun section of town.Ample parking down the street.
Beware - If you order Snapper they will serve you Tilapia – I've eaten at Vera Cruz more than 25 times. On my last approx. 6 visits I've ordered the Snapper from there menu. Each time I've questioned the food that I received? My last two visits I asked the waiter what the fish was and he told on both visits Tilapia. I asked why he didn't mention that when I ordered Snapper and he said he was told not to. That is just WRONG!
Great Fish Tacos – Very friendly staff and unique decor. I can't get enough of their fish taco's and their salsa is simply amazing!
Wonderful Food & Romantic Ambiance – I first tried Veracruz Cafe after reading their 5 star review in "Gourmet" magazine. The intimate space was rich, romantic and warm but not pretentious. The clientele is a mixture of Kessler/Stevens area locals, residents from all over Dallas and surrounding suburbs, national & international tourists are all finding their way to Veracruz Cafe for a memorable dining experience. The menu is authentic coastal Veracruz style cuisine using ingredients from ancient Aztec and Mayan recipes. Every single ingredient is home made from scratch, no canned or frozen products are ever used there. From the shrimp stuffed Tilapia to the blue corn tortilla enchiladas every dish I've ever eaten there is truly amazing. The service is friendly and efficient and the frozen margaritas were voted Best In Dallas by "D" magazine. Veracruz Cafe also has a second, larger location in Cedar Hill with the same wonderful food and service but the romantic original Veracruz Cafe in trendy Bishop Arts District with it's warm woods and rich velvet draperies is my favorite. Also the prices are still surprisingly moderate for the food quality and service. I hear an expansion of the dining room to a larger seating capacity is soon forthcoming. Veracruz Cafe is an exceptional dining experience by any standard.
Authentic, homemade Mexican not TexMex food prepared with care with very attentive service at a great price. – Four of us ate here on a Sunday night. The restaurant is small but the atmosphere is great and the two servers (owners) were fantastic and extremely attentive and accommodating. We had a very large Cactus salad and while my son and daughter-in-law asked to share one salad, the "1/2 portions" were really full servings! The dressings were refined and delicious. We had enchiladas with queso fresco and asked to have two sauces so we could try the home-made complex mole and pipian sauces that were very well made. We had dark nice Mexican Beers we had not had before served with lime and two great margaritas with sangria, an interesting touch.. We finished with coconut coffee, unusual but very good.
If you want unpretentious, attentive service with great authentic homemade food made with care in a friendly environment at a reasonable price, this is the place.
LOVE IT - Awesome food, great & friendly service – This is my new favorite place. I've already been 3 times in one month. The Adobo Pork is succulent and the blue corn chicken enchiladas are some of the best around. And yes the salsa is wonderful! The service is very attentive and friendly without being too much. Yes, it is a TINY place but that adds to the charm I think. But on that note, the last time I went the gentleman told me they've already leased the space next door and are expanding. Yea!!!
good but smalllllll! – hidden.... it is off the beaten path in the Bishops District.
Service is polite and quick. Good thing since there are only a few tables and they are VERY close together! its almost always crowded no matter what time of day.
I have had the enchiladas-excellent. My friend had carne asada and was disappointed. Margaritas are excellent! I dont think I would wait for a table though unless it was a quick turn. No place to hang out to wait. dont even think of taking kids or large parties (more than 4) there!
Sample authentic dishes from coastal Mexico's Veracruz in the Bishop Arts District. – In Short
Look for the potted palms outside to find this tucked-away spot. Two features will strike patrons: dramatic blood-red walls and the small dining room--it seats 24. The menu includes choices seemingly familiar to Tex-Mex fans, but with unique spices and ingredients, such as the chicken enchiladas topped with pipian sauce, a creamy mixture of ground pumpkin seeds and Mexican herbs. For dessert, the tres leches with mango is served in a generous portion.
