Las Campanas Ratings and Reviews
The ambiance was nice as usual but the food taste was way off from the norm. Tableside guacamole was tasteless and enchiladas had no flavor either. Wait time was longer than normal but I will attribute that to the fact we went during the festival of lights.
We went to celebrate the switch on ceremony and my birthday. We were one of the first tables that had 6 o’clock reservations. As soon as we were seated we were asked for our drink order. It took awhile for our drinks to arrive. We found it strange since the restaurant had just opened. Two of my guests had ordered margaritas and when they received it the size of them weren’t the ones they wanted. We pointed to a table near by that had the size my guests wanted. The waitress said with an attitude well you didn’t tell me. In which, my guests didn’t but they weren’t asked nor were we told of them or of any specials etc; We let it go and continued with our meal. It was taking awhile for our meals but we figured we make the best of it. Two of the guests in our party ordered fajitas and fajitas are known to come sizzling to your table. Unfortunately, they did not at all. My meal was not brought out and two of the kids meals were incorrect. We let the person know who brought our food about the missing food items and the kids meals. He was very apologetic and said he will fix it. After about 10 mins the kids meals arrived. Our waitress was no where to be found nor did she come check to see if we got our order right from the beginning. After 15 min she came and I had told her I still was missing my meal. After 20 minutes or so I get my meal. At this point, everyone in my party were almost done with their food. The waitress wasn’t apologetic once again. I understand things can happen but at least acknowledge a mistake. I pretty much boxed up my food when I got it. I wasn’t really hungry anymore plus everyone had ate already. We ordered dessert and towards the end of the night we received our bill. Once again no apologies that the kids meals were incorrect and they had to wait another 10-15 minutes. Also, not receiving my meal. I was really disappointed with the service. We have ate at Las Campanas after the switch on ceremony for the past 5yrs and never experienced this.
Our server was not notified that we were seated in her section so we waited 30 minutes before she took our drink order. After that she was very attentive.
The restaurants computer has a glitch if you split the check. They show the entire tax on both checks therefore leading some folks who use the tax amount to calculate the tip to leave more than they thought. The manager knew about this and has asked for it to be fixed for awhile now.
BE Aware of your bills!
I had a special dinner with my grandson before going to the Fox Theater. The food was very
good but we didn't have much time to eat it since it took 50 minutes to get our order. I thought an hour and a half would be plenty of time but we took most of our food in to go boxes.
Food was good. Our server, Jeff was great!!! Only disappointment was putting "Birthday" in special occasion spot on OpenTable reservation & nobody at Las Campanas acknowledged birthday. I always think it's nice if you get a song or dessert to make it special. I called the Mission Inn & spoke to Jordan & she said they don't really do anything there. I would have picked up a cupcake or something ahead time if I had known that.
I have eaten here numerous times and have never had a complaint, but this last time it wasn’t so great. I really love this place and it still remains a favorite but it took a significant amount of time- almost an hour to get our food. And I have been there when it’s busier, but it never took that long. A few of the dishes did not taste very good such as my usual chili rellenos tasted “eggy” and the red enchilada sauce seemed like cinnamon accidentally dumped in, as strange as that sounds! My moms order was wrong as well but we let it go. We were also sat in a high traffic area in which there really wasn’t room for passers by and someone even tripped and stomped on a pumpkin on the ground and smashed it!
I heard this was a good Mexican restaurant but Mexican restaurants are everywhere. Wow! Was I a happy camper! I had the camerones poblano and loved every bite. My wife also loved her meal. Prices were reasonable, service was excellent and the evening was perfect. Can't wait to go back.
Had never been before to eat but have always wanted to try the food and made a reservation via Open Table to celebrate our 38th anniversary. We will certainly return to eat even if it's not a special occasion. Service was great and the seafood enchilada dish was delicious. We loved being able to sit outside and the Mission Inn location is the best.
This restaurant is beautiful. The chips and salsa were great. While we really enjoyed our food, the service was rough. The waitress was kind but really lagged. Then when we finally got our food, one of our meals was wrong. The waitress did bend over backwards to make it right. Reality may be that she was just having a bad night. We liked the restaurant enough that we’ll definitely try it again.
The quality of food and service was excellent, but the time it took for our food to arrive was over an hour. We had tickets to the Fox, as most others dining at Las Companas. Our waitress explained that the kitchen was overwhelmed with orders due to the crowd from all those who are eating before the show at the Fox. That is why I made reservations. I thought ahead and would have expected the restaurant to do the same. VERY disappointed that I had to firmly ask our waitress to expedite our food. Reservations were for 5:30pm and we did not get our food until 7:05, after I asked. We did not have time to have a Casey's cupcake, which my niece was most looking forward to. Our order, just the two of us, was nothing special or different. Enchiladas and open faced quesadilla, both with chicken. I have tickets for the Fox in December and reservations at La Trattoria, I have moved the time to 5:00 pm, in hopes that this is not a similar experience.
Everything but the service was great. Waited about 10 minutes before we were greeted. At last a server greeted us but spent a lot of time explaining why we didn't get service right away, mentioning it throughout the dinner. We didn't care, we just wanted to move forward. Server assistant was unfriendly, they didn't pay attention to detail. The restaurant is so beautiful and it just could have had better service. Would still go back in hopes service would be better next time.
Celebrating a belated anniversary, we were excited to return to Las Campañas at the Mission Inn. All outside seating, the ambiance is one of the best this world traveler have ever sampled. Stunning, historic, majestic, the beautiful Mission Inn envelopes Las Campañas.
Sadly, the food did not mix well with the incredible architecture. The table-side prepared guacamole was the sole hit of the meal. My carne asada enchiladas was bland with the top of the "roll" hard, the bottom soggy. Smothered in tasteless cheese, the verde sauce missed my tastebuds completely and the beef was mostly salty.
My wife dined on their specialty shrimp quesadilla. Though tasty, it was difficult to eat as the arugula which covered forced the diner to graze on the greens before getting to the shrimp, cheese, sauce, and tortilla.
It is sad. We first dined here in 2005 and it began our regular date spot. A complex creative menu, many seafood selections, plenty of palette pleasing plates. Gone now, reduced to a single page of picks not much different, or even as rewarding, as many local "chains" or some far superior "mom & pop" shoppes.
Will we come back? Absolutely, but for drinks and appetizers until someone adds variety and flavor back to the entrée selections.
