    We have gone here a number of times, and order take out regularly. However, my husband and I were both disappointed this time. I ordered the Quintana Roo, med rare. The flavor was delicious but the steak was poor quality. Hubster's Arroz con Pollo was just "eh." And the margaritas were weak. Not up to par.

    Senorita's is your typical tex-mex joint. The food is marginal, but edible. The margarita was sugary and clearly made with a mix. The servers were nice and quickly fixed an issue with the bill, but the waiter would disappear for almost an hour.

    My friend and I visited because we had heard good things about the restaurant and had found a Groupon. We ordered the table side guacamole and a Senoritas sauce with shrimp dish. The guac was prepared without anyone asking how we would like it and it was completely bland. After several mins., we were able to find a waiter to ask for hot sauce to make the guac palatable. Our main dish was tasty, but not great. The food was fine and I might consider returning if the service wasn't so awful. It took over 10 mins. to flag down a waiter to refill my water and when he did, he left our table so quickly, he never refilled my friend's water. If this restaurant were in a town with good or very good Mexican restaurants, I doubt it would last.

    The FOOD is AMAZING! The Chef came out to greet us and very friendly. Our serve was also great too and attentive. We went there for a late graduation lunch so the place is quiet. The lunch prices were very reasonable and servings are huge. They have the best Sangria as well! Will definitely go back there again and recommend to family and friends!

    Enjoyed a good meal w a friend while in Bloomfield. The food was hearty and the portions fit for two. The tapas menu and food is the better bet but only if you share b/c the plates are hearty and a trite expensive for tapas. We enjoyed the wings (huge) and mushroom with spinach and cheeses, and the Chorizo Calamari. Paella was huge the prawns were huge but flavor filled, and the meal was enjoyed for next nights left overs. The Burrito grande was okay, I had one chicken one steak. It was soggy and the chicken dry and stringy. The steak was the better choice. The try's Leche for dessert was sweet and wet and wonderful. I doubt I will be in Bloomfield again anytime but if I found myself near by, I would dine here again

    The food was yummy, and making the reservations was a snap. Two problems. The first is that because this was my first time using OpenTable, I followed up with a phone call, explaining that I had used OpenTable and was just checking. I don't think the guy heard me or was listening because he thought I was making a reservation. The second is that my son clearly ordered mashed on the side, and the waiter repeated it, but never brought it. When we asked again, we had to wait a while, during which time my son's entree was cooling. Other than that, the food was good, the restaurant is pretty. I'd go there again.

    The location was recommended and had good reviews but my order was less than satisfactory. My food was not prepared as expected. I ordered a beef chimichanga and it came out with ground beef instead of shredded and it was not fried and no traditional sauce or cheese melted on top. I felt like it was sloppy joe wrapped in a flour tortilla. My 6 year old daughter ordered guacamole and the face she made was priceless. She asked me to taste it and it had an overpowering taste of lime and seemed to be squeezed out a bag and not fresh. I was very disappointed in my experience. I may give it one more try but I am not sure. I question why so many think the food is good. I feel like there were there more for the drinks and the ambiance than the food

    We have eaten here before and never had a problem. This time was disappointing. First it was extremely noisy and it took a while to order food. My wife's appetizer came but my chili never made it until the entrees came out. My wife's food was warm at best but my food was sizzling. The food is always good here. They seemed to not have enough wait staff and we actually got our order before a table that was seated way before us and they had kids. When some of the orders came out we noticed they were wrong and the servers did not know who to serve. Training is needed in this area. Don't know if we will go back because when I am paying for dinner I want quality every time.

    A friend recommended it to me and I was in the area with another friend, so we decided to check it out. The decor and atmosphere was cool, laid-back. However, the waitress' service and the food were lackluster. I asked the waitress which drink was the best between the Signature Margarita or the Bahama Mama. She didn't seem to know and recommended the signature because it's the signature. I ordered it (frozen) and it was essentially shaved ice. The flavoring and alcohol were pretty much undetectable. The salsa and chips were good. I ordered the chimichunga and I've had way better. The menu said it comes with onions, peppers, etc. I added cheese for an extra charge and it only contained the shredded chicken, onions and cheese.

For dinner, we ordered: Chimichanga, Traditional Beef Burrito and 2 orders of the Carne Asada. As was stated on the menu, in regards to the Carne Asada - "your taste buds will thank you!" -- that is 1000% true. We all enjoyed our food and drinks very much and we cannot wait to go back again.

    Staff were nice and friendly, good service . Food tasted good only one problem I asked to make it spicy and guess what the chef did; my enchiladas were covered with red pepper flakes. Are you crazy!!!! The common sense thing to do was give me a bottle of hot sauce or red pepper shaker or even just say sorry I can't make it spicy and I would have been ok with that. Anyway everyone's food at the table was very good.
