La Vida had a great vibe, great food and drinks, and everyone had a great time! Will be returning for taco Tuesdays!
Service was excellent and music was on point. Bartenders make really good drinks here.
My experience at LaVida Cantina was exceptional. The drinks are artistic and extremely flavorful! The staff and atmosphere is hard to beat. Mucho gracias!
The table next to us had way too many people. Otherwise the food and service were good.
Understaffed and inattentive to customers. Two waitresses tried to help make up the gap but they were still understaffed
This place has great service and a nice outdoor ambience but their margaritas have always been on the weaker side.
Love coming here love the ambiance. Music is great customer service is always great too.
A fun place to come for your Mexican food! Great food, aviance, service and margaritas! 😊
very good food and atmoshphere!
Enjoyed our family dinner and all very reasonably priced!
The waiter took for ever to bring the food something that you guys should be careful is that this same waiter was to touching to every body taichung the shoulders, backs also the tables there were to close that that you guys were short on waiters... the place was pack with people we have to wait almost 45 min for get the food
We had to wait over an hour when we had a reservation. They got almost half our tables order wrong. :(
Food and service were great. Would recommend Sunday Brunch for all.
I've been going to La vida Cantina for years. This las visit was a total fiasco. The waitress was a joke. You can just tell he was very inexperienced. Our pancakes had salt instead of sugar, the waitress just giggled when we told him and walked away. My huevos rancheros came with scrambled eggs, waitress never bothered to ask me how i wanted my eggs. I was very disapointed since I took two guest and I was embarrassed at their service. Definetely I missed their old waitress Eloy. He was the gold star for costumer service. I will not be going back to this place.
Wonderful and different
As soon I arrived, I was greatly and checked in. Every staff member was super friendly. I loved the vibe the restaurant has, and specialty the food. The food was delicious and I will be back to dine in.
The brunch is absolutely amazing! We have been there multiple times and have never been disappointed. They’re also dog friendly on the patio and that is a plus for us.
I was in Southern California visiting my son, we were looking for an outside venue for dinner, since all dining inside was out of the question. This place was not worth our money or time we spent driving here. We looked at the menu, which you have to scan to your phone, not everything on the menu was current, the waiter told us that we were looking at an old menu, when we had just scanned it from our table, anyways, we ended up ordering something that originally we did not want to. When I placed my order, I asked the waiter if this plate consisted of an actual piece of breast, not shredded, he assured me that I would be getting a piece of breast, that is was not shredded. When I got my plate, the first thing I seen was that it was not a breast, but shredded. I was not going to try it, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt, very dry, no flavor, not up to my expectations, I didn't even eat a quarter of my plate. My son's plate was just as bad, this place was expensive, but if the food was good, we wouldn't of mind paying for it. Hands down, I would not recommend this place if you are looking for authentic Mexican food.
The restaurant has taken the appropriate precautions for the current situation during dinner time which is nice but the bar gets busy and made me feel uncomfortable
I left my sunglasses at the table and they didn’t return them to me ! The server was disorganized, did not bring our waters or checked up on us at all
We went on a taco Tuesday & we were asked to leave two hours after our reservation. Wish we would have known this prior to making the reservation. Food & drinks were delicious!! Our server was great but the host was asked by management to ask us to give up the table. Kinda lame.
best experience I’ve had at vida with new bartenders
I hate that they don’t do individual checks. How are big groups supposed to come and split it only 3 ways? The waiter always has an attitude when I ask if they can individually do checks. It’s really frustrating. I love this place but I don’t want to go because at the end of our dinner my group is scrambling to figure out how to split up the check. It’s not fun.
We celebrated my friends Birthday at La Vida.
Great prices and delicious food. Our host was very helpful and friendly.
Well it wasn’t really date, it was really celebrating myself trying to find a date.
Amazing food, great environment, more heaters is possible, service is a little slow but for the most part attentive. I’m here every Tuesday and I love it!
Really great cocktails and tasty food. Good value for money and friendly service. Not a thing to complain about there!
Overall satisfactory experience, the food is flavorful, and waiter was nice. I felt like the servers were slammed, maybe management should consider more staff. We were asked by three various servers if we'd been helped, showing that tables weren't assigned. I loved the chicken tortilla soup, best one to date. Since there's a nightclub nearby, the crowd is loud and lively. Outside is well heated and spacious for large groups. We came on date night.
Our group did make a reservation in advance and boy, was that a good idea. From the host to our wait staff, everyone had a great attitude and made easy conversations. Food was yummy.
Eloy always makes our visit pleasant. The only thing I wasn't happy about was the music. They need to play more latin music since this is a mexican cantina.
I have attended taco Tuesday for about a year now and I am always satisfied and my night is always made by the service I receive and the kindness of all who work here. I love it here!
Perfect good dinner good music and good service
I recommend this place
Love this place! In CM light meal before going to the movies
Fun atmosphere for Taco Tuesday Night.
Very lively restaurant! Servers are great and attentive but not annoying - food and drinks are always yummy and interesting - not your standard food flavors - really nice and large patio - need to go more often
La vida used to be my favorite spot for taco Tuesdays. Not anymore and my friends will not be coming back either. I had a reservation and still wasn’t allowed inside? La vida still had the audacity to email me saying I didn’t show up for my reservation when it was the staff not letting me in? Unorganized and it just isn’t the same anymore. La vida is going downhill.
The server came over to remind me 2 times that he would only be able to serve me till 10 my reservations wasn’t at 9:15. He also never came to check on me order? Food drinks etc. I had to o go find him so that I can order
Awesome Potato Tacos and Margarita! This place is excellent!!!
place was not busy but we waited an inordinate amount of time for little things -- and then toyed with leaving without paying because it was impossible to get our check in time to catch the 7 pm movie next door. food was good. they would have sold more of it had they been more attentive, but they werent
when we got out of the movie, the line to get into this place was around the corner and down the block. so they must have a thriving late night business.
but from 5:30 to 7 pm, the staff got their rest. we ended up with food and drink, yes, but will allow more time next time --- and order en masse IF WE GO BACK
