Upscale Mexican reasonably priced
Great food at reasonable prices, we very much enjoyed our dinner. The fresh guacomole is awesome (and mixed at your table), and I HIGHLY recommend the tacos.

Most excellent! Found while
Most excellent! Found while searching the internet for something in that part of town-descriptio sounded quite good. The billing lived up to its description and beyond. Among the best mexican food I have ever had!

We had a delicious and filling dinner before tackling our evening of chaperoning a high school prom. I enjoyed the enchiladas divorciadas and my husband ate the tacos al pastor. We were both very satisfied with our selections. And of course, we had to have the table-made guac. Our server, Orfanel, was quick and attentive, but I never felt like he was hovering. We'll definitely be going back.

Always a Great Experience
I've been to La Sandia on several occasions, for dinner, lunch and happy hour. The food is consistently excellent and the service is top-notch. Water glasses are filled and food is delivered at the right times and at the right temperature. The staff is friendly and professional. I always take clients and out of town guests because this is a place I can count on to deliver great food and great service every time.

Love this restaurant! My Husband will not go to another Mexican restaurant because the food is amazing! The elegant and relaxing atmosphere puts us all at ease and the service is wonderful! In addition, the menu changes allow us to explore new flavors of Mexico and Latin cuisine.

The Guagamole made at the
The Guagamole made at the table can't be beat, the pork carnitas were moist and very tasty and the cheese enchiladas were equally as good. We want to go back and try some more items on the menue.

Unique Mexican food
We had the guacamole sampler and it was amazing! There were three toppings. One was roasted beets, oranges feta cheese; one was kiwi, strawberry and mango. Sounds weird, but it was unexpected and delicious. We eat here frequently and there is always something seasonal that is a new twist on Mexican. If you want enchiladas-they got 'em. But if you want a gourmet Mexican meal, this is the place.

Not your standard American Mexican
La Sandia has a great menu that takes the flavor of Mexican cuisine well beyond the burrito.

Food was great and service
Food was great and service was amazing even for a group of 15. They accommodated last minute reservation changes. At first it was seemed loud but once we were seated it sounded fine.

I have always tried to dine at you Park Meadows location, but the wait has always been way too long. I am glad that I finally got to dine here. We had the guacamole as the appetizer and the presentation was impeccable. She mad it right in front of us!!! I asked her if she would come to my house sometime lol. The food was amazing and my drink was very tasty. I am sure that I will be dining here again.

Contrary to some of the reviews
Contrary to some of the reviews I read, I found the whole experience at La Sandia excellent, from the time I walked in the door and greeted by hostess, wait staff and food; everything spot on! I'll be back.

Very fresh dishes. We had two of their signature dishes and were not disappointed. Other interesting selections that we will have to try another time, as we'll be back.

The restaurant was a new find for us and we will definitely go back. Service was great and the selection of tequila has out of this world! They even had flights which is a nice way to try the different brands.

Counter point to some bad reviews
I was looking through some restaurant review sites and a few people complained about the food and service. Since reading those reviews I have been here twice and found the opposite, both times the service from the time I walked thru the door to the time I left was great and the food was outstanding; I'll be back.

Really great food in a quiet area.
In Northfield and would like a really great dinner without having to dress up too much? Staff is amazing and have a firm grasp of the menu. Good noise level, not dead quiet and not loud.
Try the guacamole which is prepared at your table. I don't really like guacamole, but they do a really great job with theirs and I actually took some home. Also, table side presentation, it wasn't awkward.
Try the Chicken Zarape. Portion size isn't huge, but after an enormous bowl of guac, you will appreciate the quality over quantity.
Don't order the Sangria, let's face it, it's a tequila bar.
My favorite part is that it's tucked away in Northfield plaza and generally kind of quiet.
I don't write reviews...ever. But I plan on going back.

Not your basic Mexican food
We loved everything we ordered. The drinks we fantastic too. Best environment I've ever seen in a Mexican restaurant!
We are going back again and have told many of our friends about this new place we have found.
Our waiter was very attentive and friendly.

Cozy if a little on the loud side. Great Guacamole and an extensive menu selection. Attentive staff but not pushy. The meals were presented well and excellent/ tasty.

Great "upscale" tex-mex
We used a travelzoo voucher and it was worth every penny. The food is quality and not quantity. The restaurant is located in the Northfield area so parking is abundant and free if you park in the back. This restaurant has a variety of tasty alcoholic drinks as well. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly.
We will definitely dine her in the near future!

Very good food and service was outstanding. We were early for dinner, so not very crowded. Excellent guacamole and entrees!
