    One of the best restaurants in the South Bay. Tapas are creative and delicious. Cocktails are also amazing. It's usually a little hectic, but staff do a great job.

    The food was pretty good, we enjoyed the shrimp empanadas especially. Overall though the value for the price didn't seem to match, the service was a little slow, and we overall just had an 'ok' experience. Definitely wasn't bad, but don't know if I'd go back either.

    Food is good. Outside dining is good. Servers and waiters not wearing masks is bad. Why not wear masks to minimize airborne transmission of COVID? It’s awkward to have the server talking and breathing all over me while serving food. Since many of the restaurants in the area still have wait staff wearing masks, I’m gonna pass on LV Mar until COVID airborne transmission isn’t a threat.

    Best ceviche ever! Fresh with a sweet citrus sauce. Everything we tried is great! Flavors are unique and just the right amount of spice. Drinks menu has options for every taste. Interesting cocktails, good selection of wines. Highly recommend this place.

    It's an interesting menu, but I just felt that the food quality did not live up to prior visits. The noise level was off the charts for a while, with the band that was playing on the outside patio being amplified into the restaurant.

    Beautiful restaurant with tasty and beautiful food. We were there celebrating my mother-in-law for mother's day lunch. Only one critique -- the shared platter portion was not big enough for all 6 people to have a taste, so you'll need to order extra. That being said, we ordered from all the tapas sections and enjoyed EVERY dish. The blue corn tortillas are very good, the tapas are tasty & their cocktails are unique and delicious! We will return...Thanks for the service, food, & dining experience.

    Tasty tapas but most of the items are quite spicy. Service was good in general but at times hard to track down a server. Drinks were excellent! A bit pricey for what you get but would go back for sure.

    Was encouraged to submit a review by OpenTable---I made the dinner reservation through the OpenTable system and was sent numerous reminders by OpenTable regarding the reservation and yet when we checked in at the restaurant they had no record of our reservation. Luckily there were tables available but if it was crowded I would have been upset.

    enjoyed a relaxed dinner with good margaritas and tapas! Octopus tacos were good, pork belly tacos were awesome! Ceviche mixto was OK as the sauce overwhelmed the fish. Better if they made the more traditional version with lime juice for a cleaner, fresher taste of the fish. Will be back again.
