Happy Happy Customer!
I know this restaurant recently opened and I am glad I discovered it within the first week. El Corazon De Costa Mesa was excellent. The service was amazing. My table was given free drinks upon arrival, free shots during dinner, and a free delicious flan for dessert. The manager even came out to make sure we were enjoying our dinner. I can't say enough positive things about this place. The menu/prices are reasonable, food is delicious, the environment is social. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to family, and friends and I am coming back!

El Corazon is one of three hot spots located at the Triangle center in Costa Mesa. Since the centers remodel, the place is always jumpin'. The outdoor seating is nice with tables and small seating areas around fire pits for groups to gather and drink. The food is standard Mexican, but most people go there for the atmosphere. The guacamole made tableside is worth ordering.

Great food not so great service.
Like the title states the food was awesome!! I'm not a big fan of Mexican food but we all enjoyed this one. The service on the other hand was far below par. Our waitress took long to take our order, our drinks came our in a decent amount of time but our food took 30-45 mins. After we got our food we never saw our waitress again, a completely different waitress brought out the bill.

Our server brought us all kinds of extra goodies. They had blankets on the chairs, which was nice when the sun went down. Great fresh food.

El corazon...forever in mi corazon
Had my birthday at Corazon this past saturday. Best birthday I have ever had at a restaurant by far. Restaurant staff were all super friendly and accommodating to our table. They made a huge deal out of my birthday and even brought out a round of drinks for the table. Food was great. Management was awesome. Fun outdoor area to sit with a group and have drinks.

I took my wife there for her birthday and had a great time! Food is pretty good. The guacamole made at our table was fabulous. the atmosphere is fantastic. Not sure why they get 1 star on Yelp. We had great service.

Great food, but service lacking
The food at el corazon never disappoints, but the service does. It often takes quite a awhile for someone to even come over to your table to take a drink order. Then you're often waiting an even longer time for your drinks to come out. We ordered table side guacamole but our meals came before the guacamole! If el corazon could get their service and timing better synced then it would be 5 star rated all around. However we keep going back cause we do love the food.

Bananas on Fire
It was my daughters 38th birthday, my wife and I had eaten here once before. The food was fabulous. Real traditional Southern Mexico food. Cooked over Mesquite, The seafood selections were minimal but the everything, was prepared with that homemade taste. They serve beans and rice with most entrees but it was Black beans, yucatan style from southern mexico. I prefer them to regular refritos. Not so heavy and they contain more fibre. Ceviche is there only appetizer, but they have three kinds and they are all excellent. A must try for desert are their "BANANAS ON FIRE" when we want Mexican food, or great casual dinning, El Corazon is going to be our choice.

I made a reservation to arrive at 8pm. Upon check in, the hostess let me know that our online check in will be considered the same as a walk up/same day reservation. The wait was 20-30 minutes. It was not a warm greeting, and I was made to feel 'stupid' for using the Internet to make a reservation.... It made No sense. Free round of drinks was a nice gesture, but comps seem to be common place. If the job is done right the first time, comps aren't needed. Our service and good was very good after being seated. According to tge hostess, you must call the restaurant to set a reservation for her to consider valid. ???
