Food came out cold and then we were told it would be back out within 5 minutes. 25 minutes later it came out again and it was cold my dish and the appetizer were freezing cold again. Very disappointed

We’ve eaten here many times. Always loved the food. This time the food was bland. Will most likely cross this place off our list. Not sure if COVID had something to do with it, but it wasn’t good.

I went before and the food was good. Perhaps it was what I ordered. Last night it was just ok. The service was rushed, likely because we came closer to closing, but I didn't appreciate that. The server seemed nice. Just rushed. The blueberry margarita for the night was terrible. Avoid at all cost. The first time I went the mango margarita was good.

When we asked to change our table, the server was most gracious. The Santana margaritas were smooth and generously sized, perfectly paired with our food and the summer evening. Three of our group had the special which was a Surf and Turf featuring flank steak and shrimp moderately and deliciously spiced with accompaniments like spring onion and refried beans. The tuna tacos and shrimp ceviche were pleasers. Guacamole and chips were food and everyone especially liked the house salsa-great smoky taste. Our server continued to do an outstanding job throughout the meal. The other members of the staff were also pleasant and helpful. Cantina Feliz was one of our go-to restaurants for a long time but we hadn’t been there since before Covid. We were so pleased to find that the service and the food were as good or better than ever.

We love Cantina Feliz! Everyone works hard and hustles - from the top down. Though the food is prompt, it is paced well and we never feel rushed. Thank you for a consistently great dinner

Upscale Mexican, nice presentation, delicious, and excellent service. Margaritas are delicious. They are also very accommodating to food allergies- the server told me they go through allergy training regularly. We had a great experience.

Food was good. My son really liked the guacamole. The only negative was that it took a really long time to get the Togo order I placed at the same time I placed my dine in order.

Delicious and always fresh cuisine from Cantina Feliz. The fresh guacamole is a must! The chips are served fresh and arrive hot on the table. Mmm delicious! While you are at it add a couple of Patron margaritas as they are awesome with a generous dose of tequila. Had the grilled shrimp tacos which were fabulous. Shrimp was cooked to perfection and paired with a side of street corn off the cob. It's nice that they offer it up in two ways on or off the cob. If you haven't tried Cantina Feliz, you need to put this one on your list. We've been coming here for years (including many take outs during covid). They never let you down.

The food here was good but the service was terrible. Our waitress was absent until she wanted us out. Tried to take plates away before we were done and rushed only to give us the check. The whole place was cleared out by 9pm on a Friday night.
Definitely will not go back.

I have to say that my dad is hard of hearing and he hates going out because he can never hear the conversation. Here even though it’s busy, it’s not LOUD with music and he enjoys it very much!! Thank you!! Service is phenomenal!!

They brought two of our dishes, and informed us that there was a kitchen mishap, but they were making new dishes for us. They also comped our drinks. The server and manager were both very accommodating.

Food was good as always, but server never checked back with us or else we'd have gotten another round of drinks. Wasn't even really that busy. Will still go back though.

I got the salmon taco which was $2 more than the regular Baja fish taco. I needed a special device to actually see the small sliver of salmon which was dwarfed by everything else. The same was even more true of the second taco which I had on Sunday. When you look at the Baja fish taco there is one piece that is relatively large or at least fills the taco pad. Sometimes you get two if each piece is small. The salmon looked like it was sliced by someone making lox or sushi. I probably could have looked through it as thinly sliced as it was. I won't order this again, especially for the price. When you order a seafood dish you are suppose to see the food.

We had a great experience. Enjoyed everything we ordered. Starting with the smoky flavor of the salsa and ending with scrumptious churros! Staff was friendly and very informative. Looking forward to returning.

Nachos were inedible. I like spicy food a lot, but neither of us could stomach more than a couple. I counted about 40 jalapeño slices.

Otherwise, the food took about 30-35 minutes from the time we ordered. I believe they used the extra time slicing and adding more jalapenos. We did appreciate that our server urged the kitchen along since she noticed the extended wait as well.

Margaritas were good, but expensive. We were a bit surprised that we were charged extra for ordering a blood orange margarita rather than just the standard frozen marg. Our fault for not asking, but wasn’t on the menu either from what we saw. Not a huge deal, but probably wouldn’t have ordered if we knew. They did come in handy to combat the nachos.

Everything seemed pretty much the same as pre-pandemic. The food was good, but I'd forgotten how utterly noisy it is by the windows. Wouldn't hurt them to put some type of noise dampener in there.

Our family of six went for Father’s Day. The food was pretty good my Hudson steak was not the best but he easily traded it in for a burrito which he enjoyed. My margarita was average. The atmosphere was nice and service was excellent
