Delicious food and beautiful presentation, enjoyed everything!
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.
We were surprised that they were out of so many things on the menu....how odd....we wondered if they are closing soon....
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.
