excellent mexican food and a superb mexican shop next door that is worth a visit!
Love this place will come back again and again!!!!
Glad to be back! Insanely good food and a great new outside spot.
First time !! Server was very helpful. The food was great. I want to go back soon and try something else.
Food was good, but took a long time, and wasn't very hot. Guacamole and chips were tasty. Overall we enjoyed it would come back.
Food was great. I like my food a little more seasoned but the folks I was eating with said that traditional Mexican food is typically a little bland. They said it was delicious. I think it was pretty good. Convenient location, nice covid outdoor setup, great service and very good food. No complaints overall.
The food was decent but nothing worth wild. Our waitress didn't speak any English and seemed to be confused about any questions we had. We waited almost an hour for food, and the food arrived cold and wrong.
We love the outdoor dining in the back. Very beautiful setting and easy with kids. The food is excellent.
Our first time at La Cita and we loved it!!!!! Outside dining do to Covid, but we were the only ones there on a Wednesday night. It was my hubby's birthday and we couldn't have been more pleased. It took a very long time to get wine glasses, but I felt for the server who has to traverse the parking lot to get to the tables.
The food was outstanding and our server guided us with our choices so we could try a few different things.
Too much food, so enjoyed a great leftover lunch today. I can't thank them enough. We will be regulars.
Excellent food! Great service and very nice outdoor setting with tent and beautiful flower boxes.
Always a great time and the food and service are always outstanding. We love the outside dining area.
I enjoyed the food; authentic Mexican food. We ate outside under a tent due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The staff was attentive and ambiance was comfortable. It’s BYOB for alcohol and I recommend insect repellent when dining in the evening.
We enjoyed our meal this evening. The waitstaff was very attentive and polite. The food was great, truly authentic Mexican food.
We loved our experience at La Cita. The food was delicious, the atmosphere was quiet and relaxed. We will definitely eat here again!
Our only vomplaint was that dessf pite havi g reservadd tions and empty table we were not acknowledged or seated in a timely fashio .As someone handicapped with limited mobility this was as n issue. Oh, safety¹ procedures regarding Covid was outstanding(although menu must be scanned & iij would not have known how to do this if my daughter were not there,l.
Food and portions were great. SERVER WAS VERY PLEASANT. IT WAS A NICE OUTDOOR SETTING WITH MUSIC AND PLANTERS AS WELL AS LIGHTING. SO ALTHG TOGETHER IT WAS A GOOD EXPERIENCE THAT BEGAN POORLY. (SORRY CAP LOCK WENT ON)
Authentic Mexican food. Lives up to its name and great oasis-like outdoor setting. Happy we tried it!
La Cita has done a fabulous job adapting and overcoming the obstacles thrown at restaurants due to Covid 19. Safety precautions are followed and service was incredible, as usual. Actually, even more incredible as it is super hot outside and the wait staff is hustling! Masks worn, precautions taken, menu is scanned...
We dined outside in their new and improved space with beautiful planter boxes and lanterns. The food was especially good and we enjoyed the complimentary Sangria fruit.
Another great meal. We both tried items we haven't had here before and everything was delicious.
To be honest, the service was a bit below par this time but I believe they may have been shorthanded. Not a big deal at all but it wasn't as smooth or quick as on previous visits. Nothing at all that would keep us away from the fantastic food here.
Was a very pleasant outdoor dining experience during the time of coronavirus. Quiet and nicely done. The food was good and service excellent. Will return.
Great out door experience. Friendly staff
A belated birthday celebration for a friend and I. We had a 6:30 reservation and it looked like they were a little unprepared but a table was eventually secured. Great service and food, so much delicious food. We shared the guacamole and fundido, both were very good. I had the taco sampler for my main course and my friend had a seafood dish. I only got to 2 of my 5 tacos and saved the rest. La Cita was very nice and brought a piece of tres leche cake out and the plate said happy birthday, such a nice touch! They even let us stay past our 90 mins reservation time! Great experience all around!
La cita is a gem. They built an outdoor garden area for dining. It is lovely. My family and I enjoyed their hospitality, service, and food.
Second time at La Cita. First time dining outside due to COVID. Their outdoor space is very nice back behind the restaurant so far from the street and traffic. I hope they keep it permanently.
Our server, Joely, was super nice and friendly and took good care of us.
The food was delicious. Flautas, tamales, enchiladas, chips, all of it. Everything was excellent from start to finish.
We highly recommend La Cita to everyone.
I liked it. Al pastor tacos were legit.
One of the best Mexican meals we've had in a long time. It was a hot day, but they did what they could by providing ample shade.
My wife and I ate at La Cita on Saturday night, March 14, 2020 as COVID-19 fears continued to spread. We emailed the restaurant to confirm that they had taken appropriate sanitizing precautions. After that, we decided to live "dangerously" and eat out, not knowing when we might get the chance again. We were very glad we went. The restaurant has a cozy interior. It is decorated in a traditional Mexican color-scheme. There were only 7 other guests in the entire restaurant. So as far as "social distancing" was concerned, we had no worries. We ordered an appetizer of guacomole and chips. It was great! The platter came with two side sauces that added to the flavor. My wife also enjoyed a pork taco appetizer (not on the menu)--also fantastic. My wife ordered the spicy shrimp and mussels entree and I had the chicken fajitas. We each had the side salad which came with a delicious dressing. Neither of us was disappointed with our entrees. In short, the food was excellent. We recommend bringing your own tequila or other adult beverage--wine or beer. You can order a virgin margarita ($4) served in a mason jar and then add the tequila. So BYOB is a plus. Once coronavirus has been contained, we will be back.
Thank you so much for your input. We are very glad you have enjoyed our food. During these times we thank you so much for supporting our business, especially during these times, and we would like to assure you and any other loyal customers that our staff and kitchen are properly sanitized.
La Cita is consistently delicious and the staff is excellent! The space is warm, cozy & inviting and the prices are very reasonable.
Thank you so much, we hope to see you again!
Delicious food. Reasonably priced. Small seating area
Best Mexican Food in South Jersey. Was just there Saturday. The restaurant is small and I recommend making a reservation (I had one) as there was a line out the door. I have eaten there many times as well as take out and tried multiple dishes. I have never been disappointed. We even has someone who couldn't have flour....their tortillas are corn based so no issue here. I personally recommend any of the Lava bowls, Burritos, Carne Asada and seafood dishes. For apps the Nachos, Guac and Empanadas were fantastic. If you want a little bit of all, get the La Cita Sampler appetizer. Excellent friendly service. Very attentive and even though they were very busy, we were not rushed. A perfect blend of quality food and top service.
Thank you so much for your input. We are very glad that you enjoyed dining with us and we hope to see you again.
Made Reservation for 7;30 for 6.. They over booked we had to go somewhere else to eat on a Sunday night.
We are so sorry that this happened. We will put all our efforts so that this will not occur again. We apologize sincerely.
It was very good.
The only thing was they forgot to give us our salads.
Meal ended up being more expensive than we thought.
We are so sorry and we will do our best to remember next time. Thank you for your input and we hope to see you again.
This was our send time there. The food hands down is the best mexican we have had in our 6 years in NJ
Thank you so much and we hope to see you dining with us soon.
Awesome as always. Authentic Mexican food , great staff. This is a little, local cozy BYOB. We have been dining there since they opened and it’s always consistently great...don’t change a thing!
Thank you so much, hope to see you soon!
Just good food cooked from the heart by a family-run establishment.
