A word from Marinitas
Marinitas features a menu inspired by dishes found throughout Mexico and Latin America using local and seasonal products. Through the collaboration of Heidi Krahling and Frank Villa, Marinitas delivers Latin focused lusciousness that is an exciting blend of the new and the familiar. The wine list mainly draws from the expansive selections of the best wine makers from Argentina and Chile. Cocktails focus on the silver and gold liquors of Central and South America. The bar is dedicated to classic cocktail preparations including citrus juice squeezed to order, house made sweet and sour made from unrefined cane sugars, along with the highest quality mixers. Beers include a full Mexican selection from light Lagers to dark regional Latin micro-brewed Ales. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "it's getting to be a habit...we love Maranita's so much! never disappointed!"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Everything tasted the same. They must have used the same spices in the dishes we ordered. The service however was excellent."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The "Especialle" margarita is one of the best anywhere. Fresh lime juice, not too sweet etc. The food is fantastic. Even vegans will love the vegetarian plate. No compromise. It is noisy, but very fun. The quality of the food is excellent, always fresh tasting, definitely not your conventional South American faire despite the familiarity. The whole experience is a step above."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "What more can I say? We are never disappointed when we dine at Maranita's! Love the new changes to the menu!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We had a nice meal and very tasty cocktail at Marinitas. Even with a very full restaurant, the food and drink service went smoothly. Great end to our week."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "The grilled salmon and the fish tacos were tasty. Of course the guacamole and chips were great and the arugula sale we had was fresh and delicious!"
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "While Marinitas is one of our favorites, we do think the menu should be expanded a bit. Choices are fairly limited. Decor is great. Waiter disappeared for a while, forgetting to bring the water we had requested, and with the spiciness of the food, it was really needed!"
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "... we are regulars here. Food, Service & Margaritas are always excellent. We've gone here for special occasions, with large groups or small; great place for lunch or dinner or to gather with friends at the bar. Depending on time of day, can be quiet or quite a hopping place. Highly recommend."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "I have been to Marinitas on several occasions and have always been very pleased with my experience! The food is fabulous and the service is always excellent. I have been here for a dinner with my mother, dinner with a professional colleague, and will soon be taking my partner there. No matter the occasion it is the place to be!"
    Dined on 12/30/2013
  • "Not sure what other reviewers like about Marinitas but our whole group thought it was a terrible experience. Food was not very good, service was rushed on a slow Monday night, we were in and out in under an hour. Our entrees came out before we were finished with appetizers. Salad was the best item we had, and that was uninspired...unfortunately won't be going back."

  • "Marinitas is able to master a restaurant that is both romantic for couples and fun for groups. Its even a child friendly place. The food is consistently good and the margaritas are delicious....go for the supremo! Marinitas is a my go to place for a date night and an evening with my girlfriends...but I also wouldn't hesitate to bring my 4 year old to dinner with us."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "Even though we had booked a 7:30 reservation on a Thursday night, the place was extremely busy and our wait for a table was almost 30 min. The hostess seemed a bit overwhelmed. However, the food was worth the wait. We had the pulled pork special and the Mexicana salad with a side of black beans. Two of us split the entrée and salad and still took some home."
    Dined on 12/19/2013
  • "My wife and I usually dine here in the evening, but I wanted to introduce a friend to the food here, so we met for lunch. I was (pleasantly) surprised to find that they didn't have a lot of activity today. So not only did we enjoy the food, but we were able to have a relaxed conversation because the restaurant was less than half-full. I may make this a regular lunchtime destination!"
    Dined on 12/17/2013
  • "...every time. The food is delicious. Best Mexican With a flair!"
    Dined on 11/26/2013
  • "We go here regularly, and have since it opened. Food is consistent and REALLY good. We enjoy working our way through the list of tequilas. Servers are pleasant, helpful, and are generally just the right level of attentive."
    Dined on 11/14/2013
  • "I was looking forward to having dinner here since I read the recent review regarding their meichelin star recognition. I got the cod tacos and they were bland. The chips were stale. My husband got the chiveche and the chips served with it were ridiculously stale, cause scratches from the rough edges in your mouth kind of stale. Good margaritas and drinks, but I think we probably went on an off night."
    Dined on 11/1/2013
  • "Had the chile rellanos for Sunday brunch - divine!"
    Dined on 9/22/2013
  • "I've been here many times before but it had been a while since the last time. The food was still good but the service was really lacking. Our table waiter was fine but the hostess and service at the bar before being seated was poor."
    Dined on 10/20/2013
  • "Fresh and tasty food. Great enchiladas and they make a nice sangria."
    Dined on 9/19/2013
  • "The tables were exceptional as were the chicken enchiladas. The food here is very tasty. Had some nice sangrias also."
