EpicThis is one of our favorite spots in the DMV! The mojito's are unbelievable, and before we knew it our group had downed two pitchers of their white sangria. We frequent often, and the drinks are ALWAYS spot on, and the food is EPIC, everything is authentic, the Guac is really good and everything we have tried has been yumtastic!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGuacamoleThe guacomole with ceviche was easily the best part of the meal. The entrees were good, but the guacamole was a standout.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeThe good was excellent. They have plenty of seating. Service was outstanding.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways good !'La Sandia is always consistent when I dine there and usually it's a group of us that come. The staff is always helpful and attentive. My server this who's name I didn't get was awesome he was on top of everything. Food always consistent. Only area I see they need improvement would be in the consistency of their mixed drinks they always seem different every time I go there. Overall great experience!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome tasteLa Sandia serves high-quality Mexican food from multiple regions. The flavors are unique and pleasing, and the guacamole rocks!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Brunch!!We have gone to Sandia for mother's day 3 years in a row now and the only problem we have had was that we always order too much food!! Everything is good and it is hard to choose what to get. The guacamole is made to order right at the table and alone is worth the trip. The only downside this year was that there was no flan on the dessert menu. An otherwise perfect visit!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Guacamole in the area!My wife and I often dine at La Sandia and the service and food are outstanding. The only thing that my wife noticed was that the menu had changed:( She loves seafood:)5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a fiestaLa Sandia's food never disappoints. Besides the always great 'made at the table' fresh guacamole they are always wiling and able to create our requested dishes, even if they are off the menu .
Love the ambiance, never had bad service5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicioso!My husband had the tamales and I had chicken mole poblano. Both were delicious and, thankfully, not hidden under a layer of cilantro (which we don't like.) The sangria rojo was delicious - if a little weak - but fine for a weeknight dinner with a drive home afterwards!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA Cut Above Your Ordinary MexicanLa Sandia is a cut above your ordinary run-of-the-mill Mexican restaurant. Along with the normal Mexican dishes, the chef has created some great Latin American specialties such as his chorizo empanadas, which are to die for. This is not your normal TexMex restaurant and the food tends to be quite a bit more authentic. It could be a bit more spicy, however, but then I imagine that it has been toned down for the 'gringo' crowd. Service is fantastic.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe dinner itself was great,The dinner itself was great, and we had a very pleasant and accommodating server. However, we sat at the bar for a bit after dinner (around 9 pm), and were very surprised to see the bar staff cleaning the bar and basically shutting things down right in front of the patrons, during operating hours. This seemed odd to the both of us, with us both thinking that these activities should take place after hours. Hardly a way to encourage your guests to enjoy the bar area (and keep people around). The management really needs to rethink this...4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was pretty good Mexican.It was pretty good Mexican. The tortilla soup was way too salty - had to send it back. Chips and salsa are outstanding. Corn soup was very good, though almost too sweet. Traditional margarita was much better than the top end margarita. I thought the Carnes Asada was very good, and wife thought the Chicken dish was outstanding.
Decor is upscale mall - thought it would be a little nicer ambiance. Waiter was very knowledgable, if a a little talkative.
We decided we'd probably be back, though it wasn't out of this world.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA surprisingly good mealFor some reason, I never really viewed this place as a top option when I dine in the Tysons Corner mall, but after a few meals there, I've got to say that I'm a convert. The food has always been very good, and the service always attentive. The ribs are a sleeper on the menu. You'd never think of a Mexican joint having good ribs, but they are some of the best in the area.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSerious Upscale Mexican in a MallThe monthly festivals have been wonderful. First teh chili relleno, then the tamales, next the guacamole. Love this place. don't be fooled by the mall location, this is a serious restaurant!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMService was perfect. FoodService was perfect. Food was amazing! Glad we picked this place, and we'll be back!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Customer Service!My parents were celebrating their 52nd wedding anniversary and had JUST flown in from CA. They were tired and hungry and Emily and Juan made them welcome by greeting us and wishing them Happy Anniversary! Then Victor, our server, was very attentive and quick with the drinks. The surprise tres leches cake with sparkler at the end of the meal was especially nice and having Juan come over to speak to my Mom in Spanish with a sincere interest was the perfect ending to their long travel day! Love this place, and will always go back - but this night, they were especially spot on!!!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
