A word from 3 Dog Cantina
A modern Cantina, featuring authentic Mexican cuisine from Central Mexico, served in a stunning surrounding of handcrafted woodwork and wrought iron. All dishes are made fresh and in house, with an emphasis on delicious, yet health conscious cuisine. We combine a variety of fresh vegetables and wholesome proteins with traditional sauces and flavors. Our signature cocktails are made from scratch, with whole juices, agave nectar, and natural sweeteners instead of prepackaged mixes or syrups.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Don't let the bar screen fool you. The food is fantastic. Mahi mahi tacos and the Brussels sprouts are delicious."

  • "I reserved a table a week an advance BC I knew it would be busy. I thought I had chosen a table upstairs overlooking the bar. We arrived early and we were seated at what felt the backroom with the dogs. I asked the hostess and she said there wasn't anything else available. I saw plenty of empty "reserved" tables. I felt mistreated and why were we the only Mexicans back there? I had been wanting to try this place for a while and didn't get to see the bar."

  • "The food was great. Make sure and try the Chicken Taquitos and Quesadilla; Salsa is freshly made and Guacamole was very good."

  • "Great place to eat with friends and family! Spacious, interesting decor, fantastic staff! I would definitely go there again."

  • "The drinks are great but the vegetarian options aren't very good. I ordered the aguachile molcajete and it literally tasted like lime-soaked cauliflower. I would maybe stop in for drinks again, but definitely not for food."

  • "This is a good, reasonably priced spot to go before a show at the Pantages Theatre. Less than a ten minute walk to the theatre. That's what we did. More diversified menu than your typical Mexican restaurant. Some different and interesting drinks. The chicken and rice skillet is a nice change of pace. It's a bit loud and full of young people."

  • "Re the Noise Level - Our 6:00 reservation put us at a quiet hour. By the time we left (about 7:00) it was getting noisy. Not your average chain restaurant Mexican food (which is great!). Chicken mole tacos with pickled onions (yum). Good Margs, but don't get the strawberry thinking its going to be sweet (my wife was disappointed in this aspect of the meal)."

  • "What a fun place to go to! The food and drink were great! The topper was bringing the pups with us. They were treated like VIP's and indeed they were! They had their own bowl of fresh food and a big bowl of water delivered to our table. It is nice to have the little ones enjoy a night out as much as you do!"

  • "My wife and I just needed a quick bite before a movie. The menu was diverse and the food was great."

  • "Food was decent, service was slow, restaurant was relatively empty. Not the best experience, nor the cheapest sadly."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "They have the best ceviche that I have tasted either side of the border. It reminds me of Tahitian Poisson Cru."

  • "Found this place on Yelp or Google, I forget which one. Anyway, I was able to use Open Table for the reservation which makes it very easy to get a table when you are planning to be at particular place in town. They seated us right away. Service was great, food was good. I have no complaints."

  • "Sat at the bar. We had to ask for more drinks. The bartender was never on top of it to ask if we wanted another. Also never pulled our dishes until we pushed them out of the way. Food was good but the service might keep us from coming back."

  • "The bar section of the restaurant (which is huge) has open walls, so you're practically hanging out on Cahuenga, which is great for people watching. The food was decent (i had the chilaquiles, the verde enchilada sauce was a little too sweet for my taste), but I still had a lot of fun. the chili con queso dip was delicious, the chips/salsa were constantly refilled, and I got a decent number of bottomless mimosa refills (only $15, and you don't have to buy food!). I got more refills at Hamburger Mary's, but the mimosas here were stronger, so it's all good."

  • "It was overall pretty good. They had some great veggie Options and the dish I ordered (veggie rice bowl) was delicious! Very hearty and tasty. I went on a Saturday night at 8pm and they had a baseball game playing on all the TVs. People were shouting really loud and it was hard to hear in there. Didn't really like the sports bar vibe. Its a Mexican restaurant not big wangs. Spicy mango drink I ordered was disappointing. Wished thy served micheladas. would go back for the food just hope there isn't a big game on."

  • "Hip and casual Tex-Mex cantina and grill. Tasty dishes and sizable portions. Great ambiance and terrific, friendly service. A lot of fun."

  • "First time here. Sat at the bar. The one male bartender seemed more concerned with talking football and hitting on female guests than waiting on any of the customers. The other bartender who happened to be female seem to be a little bit more concerned for waiting on guests. So was the barback. We liked the bacon and egg tacos."

  • "There were some issues with this restaurant but the management went out of its way to work them out. The food and ambience are very nice especially for an authentic style Mexican cantina. It is a fun spot and everything was very tasty. My friend said it was the best ceviche she ever had and she is actually from Mexico."
