    The food was very tasty and the service was very good, friendly, and efficient. We wanted to go back again the next day for dinner (we were staying at a hotel in Claremont village). However, unfortunately they were closed for Labor Day--Sunday and Monday. Oh, well, we'll go there next time. Really tasty food, fresh, and well-presented.

    Casa Moreno never misses a beat when serving up their delicious enchiladas, you can't go wrong with either red or the green and the Mole Pueblano is straight from grandma's kitchen. We introduced a few friends to Casa Moreno and now they are hooked. The experience was great and the food was excellent, a BIG thanks to all the staff.

    Casa Moreno provided very good food and friendly service at a reasonable cost. We sat outside which was very nice for us due to the activity associated with the movie theater and other restaurants in immediate area. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for casual dining.

    We were very fortunate to nab a patio table as this was not guaranteed for a Friday night reservation. I wish I remembered our servers name. He was very considerate in asking if my date and I wanted to enjoy our drinks and the band before ordering even though this was a busy Friday night with a band on the plaza. There was no rushing us and no hurry in clearing the table and bringing our check - just the way it should be. Our food was very good. We'll be back!

    I came here on a friend's recommendation, and was glad I came. The food was plentiful and very tasty. The waitress was very accommodating to my friend who couldn't have any spices and even brought her samples of the sauces to try. We would certainly go there again. My only caution to other first-timers is that you cannot see the restaurant from the street! I drove around the block several times, and finally parked and asked some folks if they knew where the restaurant was and fortunately they did.

  • Authentic Hand Crafted Mexican

    Casa Moreno serves some of the best Mexican food in the Inland Empire. Located in Claremont, home to the Claremont Colleges, Casa Moreno draws a sophisticated mix of locals and the college crowd all of whom are united in their love of homemade, authentic Mexican food crafted with care and served with attention to detail. The roasted tomatillo salsa starts the meal off with promises of great things to come. Some personal favorites include Tres Amigos Tacos, Fajitas, and Carnitas. Not to be missed is the Mole Poblano. Treat yourself and your friends just once and you will be sure to come back. If you plan on weekend dining, book early in the week. Open Table made that a snap.

    Back again at this wonderful Claremont dining venue. As usual, excellent food and beverages. Service continues to be "OK." The wait staff is just a bit slow, and slightly less than enthusiastic about their duties. With some good training, this would be an absolutely topnotch place!

    My girlfriend loves fish tacos and orders them wherever we go. She really liked the fish and flavor of the tacos at Casa Moreno. The plate included rice and beans that were very good as well. A very nice dish. I love the ceviche here and I feel the flavor and portion served makes this the best around. It is very good and you get a lot! I have been to a few places at the beach where the ceviche might be as good but you pay more for half as much. A couple well made margaritas, some decent warm chips with a nice house made salsa that is on the spicy side(which I like) and the evening was perfect.

    We have always enjoyed the food and service at Casa Moreno. It has become our favorite Mexican restaurant in the area. We have always gone to the Covina location but, on Valentine's day, we decided to try the Claremont location. While the food and service were as good as the Covina location, the ambiance was completely different. We found the restaurant a bit noisy and not as "cozy" as Covina. The old town feel of the Covina location is what we enjoy. But, ambience aside, the food and service at the Claremont location is on par with Covina. You could not go wrong eating at either.

  • Gourmet Mexican from Puebla
    jimbo20000
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    Great Mexican spot in the heart of Claremont. Features Puebla style food from scratch. Meals are outstanding, and the outdoor dining among the fire pits is one of the best outdoor experiences in the area. The service on our last two visits was efficient, but not particularly enthusiastic. We typically split a large meal, and this may have been off-putting to the server, though we tip very well to make up for the smaller food order. An assistant server literally dropped the salad in the middle of the table with no extra plate (though we had requested one). I will give credit for him placing an extra fork on the plate. Some restaurants don't much like catering to folks who have to split meals - this appears to be one of them.

    Dined on 12/2/2013
    I had a lot of trouble finding this place, even by using GPS. I had to call twice for directions. It's located off an alley not visible from the street. Anyhow, the service was really good, but then it should have been since I was the only customer (they had just opened). The food was hot and spicy just like I like, but it tasted so much like so many other places I have eaten that there was nothing stand-out about it. The chips and salsa were a good starter. Overall it was a decent meal at a reasonable price.
