Diner Reviews
  • "I have been to this place many times, but this was the first time I used Open Table to reserve a table. A group of us wanted to go out, so I made a reservation. It was fast and easy, AND they called to confirm a few hours before. Food was excellent as always. Service was quick. The table was ready as soon as our party arrived. My only complaint is that it can get loud due to all the people talking and music playing. Other than that, I love this neighborhood gem!"

  • "We made reservations for 8:30 - group of 6. Got there a bit early and waited 20 minutes after our scheduled reservation. Just seemed strange because there was a way to seat us but they were waiting for this one table to leave. After that start things got better. Food was great and they have a great drink menu - and one huge margarita. Great vibe on this Saturday."

  • "Table side guac is good. The cilantro lime rice is awesome, sometimes we get two sides of it for the sides. The pork tamale is good, good burritos. The margaritas are good as well. The brunch has endless mimosas."

  • "Food is better the suburban Mexican restaurants. I had the a steak dinner and the steak was cooked the way I asked for it. I read that they make guacamole table side but they didn't do that for us. We were seated near the kitchen which I consider to be the worst seat in the house. I personally wouldn't travel a long distance to eat here again for special a occasion. I believe the food is more expensive than it needs to be."

  • "We had dinner reservations on Valentine's Day before we went to see Dances from the Heart. The restaurant food and service was very good. It was important that we get to our auditorium afterwards and the staff was prompt and accommodating. Even on a busy night, the staff made the night re-memorable. Thank you for everything."

  • "We tried el mariachi few times when they opened this new location. We were always disappointed that we did not return. Our friends decided to try it again and it has changed for the better. The food was mucho better and service attentive,"

  • "Have been a long time fan, but last few visits have been underwhelming. The margaritas don't seem as fresh or as strong, they seem perpetually understaffed, and the food is lacking a quality it used to possess. That said, service is always warm and accommodating, despite undue delays in receiving drinks and food."

  • "The food at El Mariachi was outstanding! I had the beef enchiladas, black beans and Mexican rice and was blown delighted by how good it was. Our party was for 10 and they accommodated us all. Everyone ordered different dinners and drinks and no one was disappointed. Their service was great and they even went an extra step by having almost the entire restaurant sing me happy birthday, It really made my birthday special. Thank you!"

  • "I enjoy it very much I took my daughter for her 21st birthday and we had a great time. Dinner was delicious our server was very knowledgeable with our food specials questions and ingredients in food. Drinks were delicious. I always enjoyed going to the original Mariachis this new one has more of a modern twist. Highly recommend for friends gatherings, brunch, and don't forget the beautiful party rooms. Thanks you for been great host, Sincerely, Carlos Hernandez"
