Food delicious, but something missing with ambience.

Lousy service and unremarkable food. Chose this place for a business lunch based on a recommendation from Open Table and its location. We sat on the patio and could barely get the time of day from the server - took forever to take our order, didn't refill water glasses, had to be flagged down for the check. The food was mediocre at best; I don't think anyone enjoyed their food. I was embarrassed I chose the place for my coworkers.

I had a reservation for a big party (20+) and they were really accommodating and helpful. Our server did great taking everyone's requests and being prompt. Great place!

I was meeting a Business associate for a early 6pm drink, which turned into two drinks and dinner. The skinny margarita's were fine, but when I went to order from the "Specials" menu, I was informed there were not special available. It would have been nice if the Server had advised us of that fact when he first approached us or took our drink order. Ok.. no worries... so I ordered the Carnitas with rice and beans. The Rice and beans were fine... but the pork was absolutely dry and really not edible. I did not send it back, but had only 3 bites, but couldn't naw my way through the very dry and tough pork. Seriously the worst Carnitas I've ever had. I I left it, and the Waiter didn't bother to notice that my food went mostly uneaten. Nice enough guy, but really, your job as a Server is to take note if food is being eaten or picked at. Not my first mediocre to bad experience with food there... I've tried over the years to be a good sport, but I think from here on in, i just need to pass when friends suggest them.

Moderate prices and reasonable value for tastey Mexican specialties.

I wasn't very impressed with our dining experience this time. The table seemed sticky, the service was slow even though it was pretty empty inside, and the food is fairly overpriced. Disappointed.

Unlike Cal-mex or Tex-mex, which dominates LA, Loteria has a more authentic Mexico City feel. Favs are the spicy chipotle salsa which accompanies chips and is way better than traditional salsa, pozole soup, and summer salad (ask to add the stewed chicken)

We love Loteria. Their food is always fresh and wonderful, and all of their servers are friendly and attentive. We take everyone we know there.

The table was not set up for our party when we arrived. We had to flag down the waiter several times for the bill. Food is just OK. The music was playing so loud that we couldn't have a conversation. I would not recommend this restaurant.

Great new addition to Studio City. Loteria is the best Mexican in town with good food and nice new restaurant. We will be back!

Loteria has been the BEST since they first opened their doors - best in service, in food, in originality, etc.. We bring everyone we know and love here.

We had 7:15 reservations. We were on time. We still waited over a half hour for our table. When the waitress finally took our order, she informed us that the kitchen staff was slammed and were taking a break. We did not get our meal until after 9:15pm. Taking a break? Who is waiting on who? I don't even remember what my meal tasted like, so I can't comment on the food.

We have been here several times and have always had great food and service.
This last time, was a huge exception. We had a party of 7 and the restaurant wasn't super busy. Our service was extremely slow, where other tables came and left before we even got our food. Took over 45 minutes to get our food, and then about 1/4 of it was wrong. We asked for Tamales without sour cream on top, and they came with sour cream on top. Ordered swordfish tacos, which were supposed to come with a side of avocados and diced tomatoes, but didn't. We asked the server about the sides and she said it doesn't come with that, so we had to show her on the special menu that it did. Our tortilla soup was supposed to have cheese on top, and it didn't. So we had to ask for some on the side to add to it.
If this was my first visit here, I would never come back. I know they are capable of so much more, so maybe they had fill-ins in the kitchen and wait staff over the holidays.

We had a nice time on New Year's Eve with tamales, specialty tacos and cazuela de la casa, which is a scrumptious combination of meats, cactus, etc with tortillas. The place is perfect size. Very good selection of tequila is a plus. Nice wait staff and very reasonable prices for food quality.

We have loved Loteria since it first opened - and take everyone we know and love there. It never disappoints and is always stellar!

During our lunch, only a few other tables were occupied, so we experienced attentive service. And the food we ordered--pork tacos and a quesadilla--was quite good.

We recommend - and take - everyone we know and love to Loteria, and it never disappoints anyone! It is always consistent with regards to superb, attentive service and excellent food. And their Happy Hour is a great plus too!
