We liked the restaurant and will return but the Mexican Food doesn't compare to what we can get in California. The service was great and we liked the atmosphere.

Food was not good, service was terrible, prices were way too high for what we got. Overall will definitely not be back.

Took my wife for her birthday, found this gem online as we were visiting for the weekend and it was worth the visit! There were authentic Mexican selections which were excellent with generous portions, the service was outstanding with a very helpful waiter named Johnny (ask for him). The owner took the time to see if our seating was adequate., on and on....Our overall experience was fantastic! Not crowded, off the beaten path from other restaurants in Georgetown. Glad we found it!

Being somewhat familiar with authentic Mexican food, I look forward to trying offerings other than enchiladas, fajitas, and burritos. I joyfully ordered the chicken in mole poblano. The salsa for the chips was good, and the sides were acceptable, but I had to return the chicken breast for being overcooked, dry, and tough. They were very apologetic and brought me a new piece of chicken, but it was the same. (I lied when they asked how the new one was; I did not want to come off as implacable in front of my guest.) I personally might have trouble grilling a piece of chicken and keeping it moist, but I don't expect a professional chef to have the same trouble.

Best Mex in NW DC! Try the Aracheneros and Margarita pitchers.

This was probably the first Mexican restaurant where we had to wait for more than 15 minutes for our order to arrive. In fact, it took about 40 minutes for them to give use our "vegetarian" dishes. For the high price of the dishes, the food itself was satisfactory and no different than other standard Mexican fare. All in all, a bit of a disappointment.

Good value and pleasant servers. The ambience is spaghetti or should I say taco-western, but we had expected that. These facts do nothing to detract from our very good rating. The food is good and sated a hearty eater in our group. I asked that our dishes be spicy, which was probably wise as they season with a light hand.

Los Cuates did not honor a birthday reservation that was made over a month in advance. I received an email confirming my reservation 24 hours prior. I was told my group would be sat as soon as possible and they would give me a call when the table was ready. I called the restaurant an hour later for a seating update; they hung up on me mid-conversation. They also hung up on my friends. They never called that night. Terrible service and complete disregard for the customer.

Had the best BBQ ribs of my entire life there! Also, the complimentary salsa and chips just kept on coming without us having to ask!

Margs were not good, very watery. The guacamole appetizer was tiny and overpriced. Also the tables were obnoxiously close together, a drink spilled at the table next to us and it got on me because we were so close.

Food was excellent, though it took a while to come.

I've walked by this place a million times and I finally went with a friend for dinner. The food was delicious and the waiters friendly. I wish their salsa was either blended or maybe cut into smaller chunks so the chips didn't break as often, but overall it was great.

Lively place. Good food from typical Mexican menu of enchiladas, tacos, fajitas, etc. Service was little slow as place was packed.
