    I knew the happening place to celebrate our Mexican Independence was at Casa Sanchez. Fabulous entertaining evening enjoyed with special house Mango margaritas for my guests. My first Chile en Nogada - it was delicious. Hats off to the chefs !! My guests included 4 first timers and marveled over the ambiance and great sound of Voces de Mexico - Mariachi de Raul Sanchez.

    The restaurant has a new menu, which is okay. I wish they would have kept authentic Mexican menu from before. The mariachis are always the reason to go!!! The service was good, EXCEPT when it came to paying the bill. The waiter must have come at least six times for the check, very annoying.

    The atmosphere was lively and service was good, just the food was blah. The salsa had no kick to it AT ALL and the mixed fajitas were lacking in flavor. My boyfriend had the chicken stuff with mozerella and that was more flavorful.

    retro Mexican restaurant, they serve tasty Mexican food, all the traditional plates and innovative twist on the traditional. But what makes this a special place is the wonderful entertainment by an excellent mariachi band. You feel like you just took a quick trip across the border on holiday. You will not be disappointed by the service, food or entertainment.

    though there are lots of great inexpensive Mexican food options in our neighborhood, it's great to have Casa Sanchez as another option. It is a little more pricey, but you get the nicer decor, a beautiful outdoor patio, fine service, mariachi entertainment and free guacamole upon seating. The owner is the consummate host, greeting every table numerous times to make sure everyone is happy. The menu is a lot more expansive than the usual taco, enchilada, relleno, burrito combo plates. The seafood, steaks, salads and appetizers are very flavorful and a nice change for the palate, but still in the Mexican tradition. Don't expect your neighborhood dive prices, but try it out if you want to have a special night out.

    We wanted to get out and try something new. When we arrived the neighborhood was a little industrial, but once we parked and went inside the interior was very nice and the staff was extremely pleasant. If you want really spicy food this isn't the place for you, but if you want tasty food done well it definitely is. I will repeat.

    From the moment we walked in. We were greeted with a smile, our table was ready on time for our reservation. Everyone in my party seemed to have enjoyed their plate. I ordered the carne Tampiqueña but the meat was a little too hard to cut. Everything else in the plate I loved. I brought in a cake ans i koved ths fact fhat you guys cut it and served it. The mariachi was outstanding and entertaining!! They made cool jokes funny dance moves and involved the audience in it. Overall service was great! Ambience too I love the paintings and the cleanliness of the place. Very elegant and classy. Keep up the good work. All you are a great team. Raul our buzz boy was very funny and welcoming.Thank you all for making my moms birthday memorable.

    Casa Sanchez is a hidden gem. They are consistently good in food quality and customer service. The Carne Tampiquena is amazing. The cheese enchiladas are muy flavorful. I strongly recommend this place. They offer valet parking when it's busy and self parking in a private lot when they are not too busy. weekends get crowded so make reservations.

    Be very clear for the purpose you're going there. If you're going for the show, then you'll be entertained. It's more than the typical mariachi show with a HUGE mariachi band, dancing, and even a few classic numbers in english. Now, if you're going to get to know your date or for conversation, you want to arrive at least an hour before the show starts so you have plenty of time for conversation because once the show starts, it gets very difficult to hear unless you want to go out on the patio. But, if you're on the patio during the show, the server seems to spend less time with you. Amazing service in the main room. Great food. Pricier than I thought, but worth the price

    Casa Sanchez is a great place to dine, but the mariachis make the experience special. The menu features Mexican fare of course, but we love their other specialties as much, and never worry that a member of our party will not find something to enjoy. The staff is very accommodating, service impeccable. All in all it is a wonderful evening guaranteed each time we visit.

    Was pleasantly surprised that the decor, it was attractive. I was expecting a more casual place. The food is overpriced, but essentially the high prices pay for the show. The show was great. Everyone in the party of 8 enjoyed their food, from salmon to Chicken Enchiladas with Mole sauce. A nice touch was complimentary guacamole, however it had too many raw onions.

    I went with my boyfriend for happy hour and loved it so much I went back with friends 3 days later for cinco de mayo. Here's why I love Casa Sachez: 1. Delicious food. I don't eat meat (only fish). The fish taco were sooo delicious. They make their tortillas in house and the food is fresh. PLUS they give you complimentary guacamole with chips and salsa. 2. Diego and Alejando! Best service, super friendly, and provided great recommendations. 3. Passion fruit margarita! 4. Complementary valet. 5. Beautiful ambiance. 6. Live mariachi band. Casa Sanchez has instantly become one of my favs!

    The place was beautiful. Service was great! The food was delicious. The performance was awesome..while we ate the Mariachi played soft music, which I thought it was romantic and enjoyable. I was totally amazed and speechless when I heard the the singer singing in English with mariachi😮. It was beautiful !!! Very great performance including the flokorico. I thought the alcohol was a lil over prized. That won't stop me from returning back😉 I fell in love with the patio.. I'm considering in celebrating my husbands 40th bday there.

    I'll start off with the positive before I go into the areas they need to improve. Their drinks were good, the mariachi was excellent, the salmon plate was delicious as were the hand-made tortillas, but the fajitas and steak plate were mediocre at best. I understand that the food is a bit more expensive because the customers help pay for the mariachi, but Casa Sanchez really needs to improve the overall quality of their steak plates to justify the price.

    It starts at the valet. Really easy and convenient parking. The hostesses are excellent. The manager is very friendly and always says hello and remembers repeat customers. The food is really a couple of notches above most Mexican restaurants. The entertainment is one of the best Mariachi bands that I have heard. This is a great place to take out of town guests to expose them to the great Mexican culture that is a big part of LA.

I asked the server for a recommendation and he raved about the Carne Tamipuena and a New Mango tuna dish…Ahi Tuna? Im Sold! OMG this Mango Ahi Tuna was to die for!!
