Perfect dinner! Just wished we could’ve eaten more but our stomachs can only hold so much!
Fantastic food and cocktails, terrible service. Make sure to double-check your bill at the end.
It was my second time going in a week... So I certainly think it is worth it. Great service once again!
the food and drinks are always great! i had a spicy tequila drink and the hongos and loved them both. a bit pricey but you know that going into it.
Absolutely delicious and authentic Mexican food with a modern update! Not sure why it took me so long to make it to Broken Spanish, but I will sure be back many more times. Fun atmosphere good energy and also great drinks.
The noise level destroys the effort of the kitchen and the pleasure of dining
Good ambiance. Ok food. Great drinks. Service was good. Waiter told every table the same line of how the tamales were the best tamales he’s ever had. We got the same. Funny.
The Oaxaca remedy and El Antiguo drinks were divine. The cabbage with cueritos lacked cueritos even though we asked for extra Cueritos. The albóndigas were very tasty. The octopus dish was ok—nothing to crave again. Tortillas were mediocre. Our bill was $180. We don’t mind paying that and more but it was disappointing and were not interested in rushing back to dine there again. Drinks. Yes!
The food was excellent and I'm glad we went. All of the prices were pretty high, though. The chicken thigh, queso, and duck meatball starters were all great. The tortillas were good but the carnitas fat spread wasn't appetizing, and certainly not worth the extra money. The corn/zucchini tamales and the lamb dish were both very tasty. Drinks were good but also overpriced for the size.
The combination of flavors was fantastic! We loved the surprising fig and green bean tostada and all the tamales! The tortillas especially were so delicious. Wonderful margaritas. Expensive, but worth it!
Amazing food that was taken to the next level of experience, can’t wait to go again for more!
Menu is a little difficult to understand, we had to ask for lots of suggestions/recommendations from our server. I'm all for adventurous or lesser used ingredients, but I wasn't quite sure what the options even were!
Food is always on point & I’ve noticed the service has majorly improved. Love this place!
Food was very good but felt rushed by server.
Everything was perfect. The corn is amazing. Red snapper was perfect! The taste was great and it had an amazing lemony, mildly spicy broth. Bill was high but thats because we had a good amount of drinks.
The food was inventive, original and tasty. We ate ate at the bar, and the bartender had complete command of the best things on the menu. I will be back.
Limited menu but the options I selected were all well prepared, very flavorful. Great ambience for a night out with friends or your significant other.
Just wish the menu had more variety & you could have happy hour while sitting at a table as well as the bar.
Overall I would recommend trying it out & having one of their great margaritas
I've been wanting to try out Broken Spanish since I first moved to LA and was not disappointed. Innovative, delicious cuisine that challenges the stereotypes of Mexican food as being "cheap" or simple, and instead it gives it its rightful place as one of the epicurean epicenters of both the ancient and modern world.
Great food and nice ambience. A gem in DTLA that is well worth the visit. Try the quesadilla:)
Excellent food, service started well then sputtered. The noise level was well over 100 decibels for most of our meal.
Always excellent, innovative food, lovely staff.
There was too much vinegar/acidity in every dish we got (we ordered 4 dishes).
A small menu, but everything was fabulous! We tried the chicken mole and the braised lamb shank as entrees and we were blown away. Home made tortillas allows customers to custom made soft tacos. It is called a taqueria, but the ambience is anything but a traditional taqueria. Next time you are at Staples, walk the block to this fantastic restaurant.
Great food loved it will return.
Honestly one of the best meals I have ever had in my life. Every dish that came out was better than the last and the family style service allowed us to try everything. It was bursting with flavor! Everyone in my party has been raving about it since!
Loved our whole meal and the service was tremendous.
Excellent food. Service started great, then slowed significantly. High noise level, so if you’re looking for a quiet romantic date this happening and hopping spot is not the best choice. Did you hear me say excellent food though?
Great food and lovely vibe. Can’t wait to return
Truly Amazing. Food was fresh, colorful and bursting with flavor. Service impeccable!
Food and drinks are amazing. Service was spectacular and intentional!
Tostada and margarita were good but everything else was a bust
Best service and the food was amazing! What a great experience definitely coming back!
As always food is delicious and today we received much better service than ever before. Perfect dining experience.
This was our third visit to Broken Spanish, and each time we discover something new. This time it was the Whole Red Snapper, filleted at the table. Wonderfully flavored, and a great compliment to the Esquites (a repeat favorite), the Chile Relleno (unlike any I have had), the Spinach Tamale, and the Asparagus Tostada. We finished with the Flanna Cotta. Perfect evening!
Incredible layers of unique flavors in several dishes, especially the Tostada. The Chicharron is worth the money and lives up to the reviews. Everything we ate was superb and we're serious foodies. Great drink options too from the cocktails to the wines to the tequilas. Know that it's very noisy.
Service was great but the menu was confusing and food was overpriced
Celebrated my 30th Birthday with dinner and drinks here. Had an absolutely fabulous time. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was lively!
Only the noise in the main room was bad. All the rest was very good.
Great food and service!
