Fantastic food and loved the outdoor seating!
Food was outstanding. However service was without a smile and we all felt like we had to apologize for anything we needed. However as stated the food was wonderful and the ambience was beautiful. Would definitely go back and hopefully service will be better.
Everything was perfect. Food excellent & Alphonso was a terrific waiter.
Great food! Sat outside on a lovely evening and enjoyed a leisurely dinner
Food was really good - service was lacking, but they put one server over like 10 tables. Our bill would have been much higher if we had a server that could be more attentive.
Disappointed to not get a table outside given that we made a reservation three days prior. We were sat in the back.
The food didn't live up to the hype. I've had better for less money.
Food was poor.
Food was average. We ordered drinks which were the same as any other margarita we had in Arizona. Appetizers were good. Our meals both had mole in the description and unfortunately our entrees were covered in it!!! It made it extremely difficult to even tell what type of meat you ordered. My husband also got extremely sick after eating here...not sure if it was caused by this place but enough reasons for us to not come back.
The waiter was nice but a gal came over and said she was the tequila expert and that my husband was incorrect to order it on the rocks and brought it to him without. She kinda embarrassed him and he didn't end up liking it. Also my husband called in advance and told them it was my birthday but not a mention or anything fun. It didn't live up to the hipe.
On a golf vacation with friends, best restaurant we dined at in Scottsdale. Sat outdoors facing tall Palm trees that provided a serene atmosphere. Francisco out waiater was great and the food was wonderful.
The food at La Hacienda was terrific. We loved the tableside guac and the lobster tacos. My teenagers had Fajitas that were excellent. My wife had the ceviche but it was just average. I had the short ribs and it was very good. Overall, the food was great. The service was friendly and welcoming. Not outstanding but good enough. Food came out quickly. We tried a few different margaritas. The Blood Orange was a bit too sweet but the Hibiscus was awesome!
The only downside to the experience was a draft blowing right on us in the back room. It was chilly. The ambiance in the back room wasn't great overall. A bit loud (cavelike) so sound carried. It would have been better to sit elsewhere. Definitely put a damper on the evening and had us leaving earlier than we would have liked. Didn't stick around for dessert. If the vibe was better in that room we would have stayed for dessert or coffee but the draft was too much to stick around and longer than we had to.
Just great all around, from the friendly staff to the always excellent food. Our only issue was a young child who was noisy during our meal. But he eventually quieted down- bring back the watermelon margaritas!
Great food, great service. Time and time again, this place is amazing!!
Great service and ambiance, and food was great as well.
Menu has changed. I miss the small plates - portions are too large. Skirt steak was over cooked and a little too charred - but otherwise food was delicious. Very pricey. Excellent service - love the dishes!
food was great and the service was fabulous. I was disappointed that I made 6pm reservations for my 60th birthday at an outdoor table. unfortunately there was no outdoor table, they said the reservations were at 6:30pm and there was no mention of my birthday.
Great food- good service
Food was amazing. Service a little slow. Would go back again.
Absolutely phenomenal. Lived up to the hype.
Best Mexican food...second time in town and always on our list!
Host was a complete jerk. Seated us at the worst table with nobody in the restaurant and wouldn’t let us change tables. When we left there was still very few people in the restaurant. Food was average. Won’t be going back.
We love La Hacienda so much! It is our favorite Mexican dining restaurant by far! We travel every year to Arizona from Chicago and make it a point to go to la hacienda at least once while we are here. No complaints, everything is fantastic- from the atmosphere to the homemade fresh guacamole to the fajitas and the churros! It’s all just amazing! See you next year!
Great drinks. Ok food.
Great food and great area!
Great food and margaritas
Recommend to seat on patio
Every year we come to La Hacienda. Never a bad experience—always friendly wait staff, the food is excellent and the guacamole is the best! Try the churros for dessert to top off a wonderful evening.
On vacation and looking for great places to eat. This was special.
Great steak fajitas & pork carnitas! But very pricey for Mexican food!!
Started off evening well, ordered guacamole and was tasty. Evening went down hill quickly. Wait staff was not very well trained or attentive. Had to continue to call them over for more water, ordering drinks and to correct order. Overall food had mixed reviews from our party, based on price and quality, had to rate the experience and value poorly. This was a business dinner and I will need to strike this restaurant off my list in the future, my clients were not impressed.
Tasted like Mexican chain food. Rude diners and rude front of the house staff. Pretty awful for this type of resort spot
We ate on the terrace
We went to Hacienda to see the Princess resort and read online reviews that it was voted best Mexican, etc..The food is fine, nothing special..pretty generic Mexican really. Sat on fire pit table on patio which was nice. We were at a different resort, so wouldn't go out of my way to eat Mexican there..just wanted ambience of Princess resort and to check it out.
Great place but a bit on the pricey side. !8 for a top shelf margarita and several pricey tequilas. Food portion on carnitas Tacos are huge, more than most could eat. Fajitas nothing special
A wonderful 21st celebration for our daughter! The different tequilas, margaritas were awesome! Then food was exceptional as was the service!
Fantastic! Incredible food and service!
Really enjoyed our evening at La Hacienda. The food was great. The ambience was excellent and we enjoyed the Princess Resort setting.
We tried to change our reservation to a later time and were told that the restaurant was fully committed and couldn’t change our time. So we went at our original time and the place was half empty and remained half empty when we were done with our meal over an hour later. We’d only wanted to push the reservation back 30 mins! This annoyed us greatly. The server was nice and attentive. The food was extremely greasy. Extremely. Greasy. Would not dine here again.
