Celebrating a family birthday. We enjoyed our drinks……Margaritas and nachos. All the entrees were great, fish tacos, brisket burritos, chicken burritos. All really good. Our servers were attentive and food came out in a timely fashion.
We definitely will be back

Haven't been to Cantina Feliz for a few years but glad I went back. Very Good food and margaritas. We got food to share and it was plenty. Nice bar area. We missed happy hour (ends at 6:30 pm), but definitely want to come back for happy hour.

A weekday night so not real crowded where we sat. Most likely the restaurant did a good job, due to COVID, in spacing diners apart. The waiter was very attentive, & the food we ordered was excellent.

we dine here as a couple every couple months and always have a very good experience - we usually get the chicken enchiladas, carnitas tacos or grilled shrimp tacos, chips and salsa, side of rice and beans and this combo is always plenty of food and very well made. Add in a well-made margarita or 2 and excellent service and you have the reasons we keep coming back.

We have been at this restaurant before but tonight‘s visit and dinner was the best so far. Our service was great and we enjoy the ambience. They do a great job with food preparation and we will definitely be back to enjoy this restaurant again.

Great place with fun decor and vibrant social feel. The service was solid, despite the place being very busy for NYE. I highly recommend the black bass, which is delicious. I get it every time. I would also recommend the traditional fundido with chorizo, though I always request chips rather than using the soft flour tortillas. I am anxious to try the shrimp fundido, as well.

Prices not accurate on menu and the bill. Food took too long, 45 mins for our appetizer. Steak tacos were very chewy.

My husband and I had a really nice time. We just wanted a nice spot to go for a Friday date night, and we both really enjoyed it. We loved the Happy Hour options and both ordered chicken enchiladas which were good. Our server, Tyler, was really great as well!

We love this place. The salmon tacos best ever! Server refilling our water glasses put his entire hand over the rims of our glasses to pick them up To fill with water. Then he went to the table next to us and did the same thing. No sanitizing hands in between so now we know we have touch lips and saliva with the table next to us. Pretty sloppy
They need to train their staff never to touch drinking glasses anywhere near where someone will sip whether we have Covid virus pandemic or any other germs around. Just not done!

Average at best. Poor service, although it is not their fault - No one can get anyone to work these days and there were only a few people to manage all tables at this place. Food very average. El Limon, Tamarindos and Azteca are 10 times better for half the price.

We love Catina Feliz. As usual, our food was delicious - fresh, bursting with flavor, excellent presentation. Our server, Nick, was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. Cantina Feliz never disappoints and we appreciate that! P.S. We would love to see outdoor seating.

Good: We come here because we like the flavors. Everyone is polite.

Bad: Too many young people think they just went to hospitality school. Please, you are not that important yet and you are hired to take care of customer.

Our waitress was fine, smile, and was trying. More professional staff is needed and monitor the table for the customer needs. Stop hiding in the back room.

We will come back but please remember there are other places customers can also go.

This was our 1st time out in 2 years because it’s so hard for us to find child care. I don’t know if this is now industry standard across the board from being short staffed, but it was very disappointing. The Margs were good and I enjoyed the time out with my husband, but it took 25 minutes to get guacamole and 60 minutes to get tacos at 8:15/8:30 at night. The food was so physically hot it took forever to be able to tolerate eating it, the outer edges were burned, and it was also so spicy I could not taste what was even in the food and I like spicy food. There was also very little meat in my short rib enchilada. TBH honest I was so hungry at that point I couldn’t wait for the food to cool down. The plantains were cold and the chicken in the tacos was room temperature at best and dry. The bartenders were barely attentive. We were never really checked on and always had to initiate communication. The bar was far from packed with patrons. We also were we never offered nor provided with water and had to ask for silverware. It’s a shame because we have gotten take away from here several times and enjoyed. It’s really hard for my husband and I to get out of the house, so this was extra disappointing.

They are just so short staffed. It’s a fun environment but we only got our drinks when dinner was served. Sucks, it has good potential!
