We are regulars at Kachinas, but the service has been going downhill rapidly. We stuck with it because they had Kids Eat Free on the weekends, so it was helpful. Yesterday, we were told by the manager that they no longer do kids eat free. But, when I mentioned that to them on FB that we were disappointed that got changed, they responded that kids do, in fact, eat free. Now, I am angry. The food isn’t worth the bad service and the management not having their act together. Sorry Kachinas, you lost customers yesterday.

Our food did not arrive after 45 minutes. The server did not check in to let us know what was happening until we asked. No plausible explanation was provided. The manager came out 50 min later, which does not strike me as great customer service despite the fact that they offer to pack our food.

Food at Kachina has drawn me back again and again but this was my first breakfast with them. My associate and I decided to share the 3 egg omelet with potatoes -- all good -- and blueberry pancakes that were probably the best I have ever had (and I pride myself on my own blueberry pancakes). They were amazing! Kachina has never disappointed me!

Nice restaurant, but too loud for conversation. Also, If we'd like to switch seats to hopefully have a chance for conversation, it would be nice for the hostess to do that -- not tell me it is reserved for 2 people 10 minutes later and they show up around the time we are having dessert.

We've been going to Kachina since it opened. As it has grown in popularity so has the crowd. Saturday night was full and noisy. It was hard to hear our table guests. A noisy birthday party in the back room contributed to the noise level. We lingered long enough for the noise to die down and enjoy the food, which is still interesting but may need to expand its menu soon.

We always love Kachina for a special occasion. Unique menu and cocktails. It can be a bit pricy and the service can be painfully slow. Do not go here if your expectation is to be in and out in 45 minutes. If you aren't in a hurry, then there is plenty of atmosphere to soak in and enjoy.

Kachina's has long been a favorite and a standby of mine, and it rarely disappoints. The food was not quite on point last night, unfortunately. My date had the chicken enchiladas, and they were served vastly overcooked, so much so that the consistency was almost like soup. The dish itself was served so hot that it was inedible for quite some time. Generally, consistent quality is one if kachina's defining attributes. I certainly hope that this is not a sign of things to come...

The food was delicious, as always and atmosphere was lively. We will be back-- even if we don't stay at the hotel.

I absolutely LOVE this restaurant, and that is why I chose it for this special luncheon. Our table was perfect for 10 people, and our service was excellent!
I do have an issue about the menu though: the empanadas were quite disappointing; not fresh but obviously frozen, not flakey & tender, & should be

no point in making a reservation. it took 15 minutes for us to even get greeted an another 5 minutes for the hostess to tell us they were finding us a table. it wasn't even that busy. then it took 1 1/2 hours to get our food. it tasted good, but by that point we were starving.

We have been here four times in the last two months since we discovered it. Every time the hosts are not friendly or accommodating. Finally this night we had a great host who was very friendly. We also have had Andrea as our server twice. The first time was a few weeks ago and it was her first night alone on the floor and you couldn't even tell. She is very friendly and even remembered my fiancé and I even though we brought in a large group this time. The food is always good and everyone always enjoys the drinks. We will be dining here often

Wait staff and bar tending were both off. Menu seemed to be greatly pared back since our last visit in December. Food not the same high quality we've had in past visits.
Very inconsistent visit, not sure it was worth the hour drive we normally gladly make.

Really enjoyed this place. My girlfriend and I flew in for the night from Austin and had a special deal to stay for cheap in the hotel. We decided on Kachina mainly because one of her best friends is named Kachina. But it was a lovely brunch.

Bottomless mimosas, can't say no to that. Had the beignets and they were perfect. I had the duck hash and it was very flavorful, filling, and something I'd order again. My girlfriend loved her breakfast bowl as well.

Totally worth a visit for brunch.

Great service and amazing food! Loved the corn creme side and the tacos and my favorite was the Vegetarian one. It was my husband's birthday so we had a dessert tray and the Brownies were fabulous, they had a hit of cayenne I think that pleasantly surprised a person. I need to figure how to make them at home now.

Food was tasty. We had 3 kinds of guacamole and tacos made with more of a bread than a tortilla as well as the mixed grill. All were delicious!

Not so great: Portions were fine for me, but not enough for my husband.
Stingy-sized margaritas for the price. No specials for Cinco De Mayo. Kinda pricey overall.
