  • Mothers day brunch

    Dined on 5/12/2013
    Made a reservation for the patio. They set us inside. Food from buffet was cold and most bins were empty. Service was bad that day. I love this place, but probably will not do a brunch there again.

  • Have been to Vida Loca many

    Have been to Vida Loca many times. It is progressively going downhill fast. Went on Tuesday 6 pm to see the Grateful Geezers, a great band. Requested seating on the patio where the band was playing and was told there was no waitstaff for that area, we would have to go to the bar to order. There was one bartender to take orders for 15 people on the patio and fix drinks for the whole restaurant. A table of six went inside to eat and never returned It took over an hour to get our food. After eating, I got a large serving tray and removed the dishes from our table. I'll go back to see the band, but will eat somewhere else first.

    The food was good, the blueberry mojito was excellent. They ran out of poblanos which was my original order. Sitting on the patio, you get to look at an intersection. Overall it's an ok place to eat, no better than a franchise restaurant.

    My fiance and I have been here a number of times and our experiences have all been good. We have come here for brunch, dinner, and a birthday party planned for me. The food is good and flavorful and the service responds to your needs. The drinks tend to be on the great and quickly served and I would recommend the Bull-rita.

    Patrons should be told of a cover charge for sitting outside with the band. Food was disapointing. Band was great and entertaining; an intimate new years eve venue.

    When the Grateful Geezers band perform there it is a great place to be. They pack the place with followers. Over the years I have been there with friends and relatives and a great time has had by all. Always recommend reservations to assure seating.

    Dined on 7/7/2012
    We appreciated the extra effort made to find us a seat so we could hear the band Identity Crisis. We enjoy hearing them play so much. The host went to great trouble to find us a place. We ended up dead center in front of the band. It was a most enjoyable evening as far as the band, help from the wait staff, and being with our friends. Thanks for the extra effort! Sherry Brown

    Dined on 4/28/2012
    I used open table to mame the reservation and noted in the special notes section that I wanted to be outside on the patio for Elvis night - good thing I called because they didn't read my special notes. Also for Elvis night we had to pay $20 ahead prepayment for reservations. I understand paying $20 ahead but not for the reservation. Other than that it was great. Love Elvis night, also fun.

    Dined on 3/24/2012
    Made a reservation as usual and when we go their they would not sit us in the patio where we always sit. The excuse was we did put in the reservation that we wanted to sit in the Patio. We have made a reservation 10 plus times to eat there and never had to put on the reservation for the patio. The entire interior of the Resturant was empty. The food is pricy and the quality med but the ambiance on the Patio make up for it. We went to Kukos instead were the food is awesome.

    Horrible waiter. Didn't seem to want to be there, was rude, never thanked us once even as we passed him when we were leaving, brought us one check without seeing if we wanted multiple separateand when we tried to tell him this we could not find him and had to ask a manger to help us out. He should never have gotten the automatic 18% gratitude fee

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 1/7/2012
    This was quite a disappointing visit to Vida Loca. With a party of 7 including one great grandmother the restaurant was very loud, which they tried to solve by giving us a service area that was not being utilized and having one server from the outdoor area wait on us. She proved to be very inefficient but more disappointing was the food. One fish order was sent back as it was totally inedible. One burrito dish so salty that it was difficult to eat and the queso was amazingly Velveeta-like...can't say we will be going back ever again. Tilapia as the Catch of the Day - C'mon Man!!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 11/4/2011
    The Entertainment was good and atmosphere was pretty good but we had a party of 15 and the tables were not ready and we waited for 45 minutes to be seated when we had a reservation. The waiter that took care of us forgot about us for a while and never brought water or asked us if we wanted any more drinks. We ended up after finishing eating having to go up to the bar to get our own drinks.

    When I reserved with Open Table I said we need a space where we could have a conversation. They had no area set for us when our reservation time came. We were set on the patio with all the other diners and we could hear each other talk. Not what I had hoped for.

    They were charging $10 cover to see the band play. They didn't advertise the cover and I planned a 10 people gathering to go see the band and I was embarrassed with my friends because we didn't get to see the band. THat's the reason we went to the restaurant.
