Right as she seated us (at 4:45), the hostess told us that our table had another reservation at 6:30. She wanted to make sure we would be done by then. It seemed odd and a little rude.
Always a fun please to get back to. Great atmosphere and vibe, locals not tourists.
Fun, great 'go-to' place. Always a good time, and always the best margaritas. Staff are friendly and helpful.
These guys always knock it out of the park! Great food, great service!
Food was really good. Both entree’s were seasonal and flavorful ! Good margarita menu! Nice old school vibe! Indoor fireplace is nice for a cocktail before seating! No outdoor seating or bands playing in the winter :( but the fire was going outside! It was pretty quiet for a New Year’s Eve!
great service and food.weather was great to sit outside
The first impression was pretty bad as the woman who I presumed to be the manager was on the phone and completely ignored us. She was about 12 inches always from us. Instead of saying sorry, I’ll be right with you, she just turned and yelled at someone else from across the restaurant to help us. At this point we almost left but glad we didn’t. The service got much better from there. The woman who showed us to our table was extremely sweet and server was great as well. The food and drinks were very good. Same lady that was was rude at the start was also rude as we left. Didn’t even acknowledge us and this time she wasn’t busy on the phone.
Lovely al fresco lunch on the patio on a warm winters day. Mains took a bit long to arrive but were worth the wait! Friendly service and nice vibe...mainly locals.
Love the food, love the service. I will go there again, and again!
We were staying at the Carmel Valley Ranch and wanted a casual nearby place for dinner. The food here was great, and we loved the atmosphere. The decor is super unique -- an amazing collection by a car enthusiast, everything in great condition and amazingly clean (ie not dusty, as many of these types of places with paraphernalia everwhere can easily get). I had a good margarita, and all the food was good. Big place, would definitely recommend.
Great restaurant find on our Western adventure. Food tasted fresh. My only complaint would be that the chips, which were very tasty, had salsa on some of them. It almost looked as if they were leftover from a prior table. However, everything else was delish. Would definitely be back...
Disappointed food was cold. Could not eat it. Waiter very helpful he tried to get another order out quickly. We should not have been charged for this
Seated fast , was very busy
Loved the atmosphere
Didn't have any drinks but the drinks looked amazing !! Soda was crisp & delicious
Decent priced $$
Got the chimi & not much meat in it & the shell was burnt ( should of had the tacos )
Was so excited & my choice lead to disappointment. Would return , but would get something else ....
Good band, good service, average food quality, lousy Cadillac margaritas.
Giant portions great food reasonable price
Everything we have had has been great
Great evening! Excellent food, drinks and service!
Met with local relatives while visiting Carmel Valley. They recommended the place. Great fun. Good value, good food, good drinks. Definitely will return.
waitress was not very friendly, been there several times worst waitress!!
I have been to Baja Cantina several times since we discovered it about a year ago. Service has always been outstanding, and this restaurant serves the best Mexican food in the area. The mixed green salad is tasty, too. The large deck for eating outside is wonderful, especially on sunny days.
Baja Cantina is a favorite of ours when visiting the area. The cars are great to look at, the live music is fun, and the food and margaritas don't disappoint. Their churrros are delicious too. Love the decor and ambiance.
