Diner Reviews
  • "Cantina Feliz never fails to deliver a fresh creative meal in a lively attractive setting. You may find it a bit too noisy at times, tho if you have kids you'll feel totally comfortable bringing them along. Always fantastic food!"

  • "This by far is my favorite restaurant, it blows Distrito out of the water."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Food was good. Watch where you sit, the air vent can bedirectly over head and then it gets very cold. We had to close ours. Thought it was a bit pricey."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "One thing the dishes do not lack at Cantina Feliz is flavor! If something says that it contains chorizo, you get hearty chorizo pieces and not just an empty promise like most places. Shared a bunch of appetizers and loved them all - shrimp and chorizo quesadilla, chrimp and chorizo fundido, fried cauliflower, shrimp ceviche, etc. Can't wait to return!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "The food is authentic, fresh, delicious with lots of gluten free options. Guacamole is fantastic, fish tacos are on point and the margaritas are top notch. High up on the list of "real" Mexican food in town. More comfortable seating would make it the best."

  • "The food was very good and the service was excellent. We told the waiter that we were going to a concert and needed to move quickly and he was very accommodating. We had one meal that was not done as well as the others and he corrected the problem AND credited the charge for the meal. I would defiantly come back when in Ft. Washington."

  • "Average food with overpriced menu. This is not fine dining. Nothing to super complain about, nothing to voice excitement about. At least the margaritas are good."

  • "Seemed pricey. The food was good, but I'd try other places first."

  • "I just started eating Mexican and wasnt sure about trying here, but I was pleasantly surprised when everything I tasted was excellent. Much more authentic Mexican than some of the other chain restaurants. Drinks were great, appetizers were great and the meal was wonderful. The staff could not be more accomodating. We went with two other couples and they were a bit concerned that they heard the restaurant was pricey, but for everything we got and the quality of the food it was well worth it."

  • "This is still the best Mexican food out there. Nothing is drowning in heavy sauces, it is all fresh and " clean" THE best shrimp servache I've tasted, ever highly reccomend"

  • "A girlfriend and I met up for dinner and drinks to celebrate our birthday. Service was top notch. Waitress always checked in on us but did not rush us out (we had a 3 hr dinner)! Food was delicious as well as the margaritas. Will definitely be returning soon!"
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "My fav Mexican restaurant because of it's upscale and delicious cooking yet moderate prices. You will find the chef' work 'out of the box' putting the typical Tex Mex menus to shame. Yummy!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We love the food at Cantina Feliz as well as the incredible waitstaff! Everyone is very friendly and we feel so fortunate to have this fabulous restaurant so close to our home. The white sangria is a favorite, the nachos loaded with cheese, etc. and the vegetable enchiladas were incredible!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "When we got there we waited about 2 minutes before we were seated. Perfect. I mentioned in the special requirements it was our Anniversary and after we were seated they brought complimentary Champagne. Nice touch. Waiter knew the menu answered our question and our meal and the experience were top notch."

  • "Lunch was great at Cantina Feliz. Lee the hostess was so nice and welcoming. Great Lunch menu and we loved the recommendations made by Ian our friendly waiter."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Food was fantastic as always. Energy level is high and makes for a fun evening. Our waiter was less than ideal, certainly not the norm there. He looked tired and was not smiling or friendly. I even tried to be extra nice and crack jokes but nothing was working. Im not a fan of people who don't bring positive energy but of course I will go back - it is one of my favorite places!"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Food was great but the noise was almost unbearable. Conversation was difficult. My son has hearing loss and it would have been impossible for him with hearing aids. It was a Thursday night and it was packed. That said, the food was superior."

  • "Cantena Feliz gives you good food, good service and in on of the one of the best Mexican reatuarants in the neighborhood"

  • "I have had all great experiences at Feliz Cantina.. only thing that needs help is the steak taco..last time the steak was not cut against the grain which made it tough..other than that I will be back for the fish tacos for sure."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The portions were a bit smaller than expected. For the price you might expect a bit bigger portion. I know somebody from our party ordered the special of the day, lamb chops, and was slightly disappointed when they saw three little chops on the plate. Also if you get tacos they do not include rice and beans, that's an extra cost. The house margarita was delicious."

  • "Server was great! Very pleasant and enthusiastic!!!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "I have been to Cantina Feliz for lunch with colleagues several times and it is consistently great. The menu is well executed and the food is extremely fresh. Service is always very good. My only suggestion would be to add a couple more items to the lunch menu."

  • "Arrived with our party for a corporate luncheon. Was seated immediately & greeted by a lovely & friendly hostess. Watched our server attend to other tables before he approached us for our drink order, 20 minutes AFTER being seated. 10 minutes later he brings us our drinks (again as he attended to other smaller tables and didn't go and get our drinks promptly) he finally brought us our drinks. And took our order but at this point, we had been seated for 40 minutes already. The lunch menu was very limited. From the time we were seated to the time we received our soup/salad option #1, it was 1 hour later. HORRIBLE SERVICE. Had to get our lunch to go because he took too long to serve us."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "The food here is consistently good, I happens to have dessert this time( we usually don't order dessert), we had a chocolate cake, and the tres leches, both were mediocre. However, the queso fondito de hongos and nachos were solid. I have recommended cantina feliz to many people and will continue to do so."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We've visited several times and have always enjoyed a great meal. I've eaten alone at the bar, and have hosted a table of 8. I particularly like the ceviche verde, and the chorizo fundido is a guilty pleasure. I've sampled almost everything on the menu, and they were all executed well."

  • "Our recent dinner was absolutely phenomenal! From appetizers to soup, to entrees, the food was delicious! Our cousins from Toronto who were visiting could not stop raving. All in all, a wonderful dining experience! Service, as always, was very friendly and our food was brought promptly!"

  • "My husband and I love this restaurant!! We always get at least one of the specials because they are always fantastic!! This weekend it was a scallop ceviche appetizer that was out of this world!! But it always thought to figure out what else to order because we enjoy sooo many things on the menu. This time we went with tuna ceviche taco appetizer and the grilled shrimp appetizer. They are two of our favorites!! Our kids love the chips and guacamole and then they usua make their own tacos with the grilled chicken. All the food is of the high test quality! No need to make the drive to philly because this place has it all!! "

  • "After a mishap with a requested table, the rest of our experience was wonderful. Our server was knowledgable and very attentive. The food was absolutely fantastic. If you go try the blue cheese and fig guacamole. It is one of the best mexican appetizers we have ever had. The rest of the meal did not disappoint us. At the end of the meal, the server came up to us with the dessert menu and told us that dessert was on them for the little mishap at the beginning. We definitely would go again!!!"
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "this is not traditional Mexican cuisine but the liberties taken result in tasty and unique creations. The classics aren't missing just remixed. It's a fun restaurant with pleasant staff. A place I might return to when in the area. And would suggest for someone looking for something different and possibly unexpected."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "First time at Cantina Feliz. Great appetizers - fantastic shrimp ceviche. We had the enchildadas - chicken, beef and seafood (1 of each) and they were delicious. The margaritas were really good also. Will definitely go back so we can try more dishes!"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The food was delicious. I wish the servings were a little bigger, because I finished everything on my plate. Nothing was overly seasoned. Our chips and salsa were never brought out however the waitress removed it from our bill and gave it to us to go. The Santana Margarita was so good. Definitely would recommend and come again. "

  • "Chose this resturant after realizing my first choice was closed. This was my first time here, and I am so happy that my evening turned out this way! The waitress was very friendly and the appetizers and drinks were served quickly. The guacamole was amazing, as was the Tortilla soup. I had the sea bass entree, which was also very good. The decor is very colorful and the place has a comfortable feel to it. I will definitely be returning soon!"

  • "My husband never thought he'd like Mexican food, but he loves Cantin Felix. He wants to go every week! When we go we want to have all our favorites but learned a lesson, you can't it everything in one meal. So fabulously good, but we didn't need to eat again for two days. Love love love "

  • "Had 1 regular guacamole and one with crab, both were very good. There were 6 of us we all enjoyed our entrees, I got the crab cake and it was a tad too spicy for me but good. The cauliflower side was delicious. It was so loud in there we could hardly talk to each other, I wouldn’t go back on a weekend night again unless we went earlier. The gratuity was added on and my husband didn’t notice, left a tip on top of that. The next day he was thinking it was really expensive for that meal and then realized. In the restaurants defense the menu did say that parties of 6 would have the gratuity added, anyway he called, they looked up the check and saw that we had left above and beyond the added gratuity. They sent us a gift card in the mail. "
