Mexican
We create authentic Mexican food inspired by the cuisine of Mexico City and add a modern twist. Imagine grilled fish, chicken or steak topped with one of a kind signature sauces like chipotle-wine and Portobello mushroom or sautéed artichoke heart and roasted red bell pepper. Pair that with our award-winning margarita, the Casa Rita, made from fresh lime-juice and the finest tequila and you’ve got what we call Modern Mexican.

Food was good. Service was excellent. Seats were next to the big glass window. And I could see the game from the extra large tv not too far from our table.

This was my second time coming here. My first experience was five stars all around. However, returning for a second time was not the same experience. In no way is this any malice towards the establishment, I understand there is a shortage of workers in all areas right now. I'm glad we made reservations since we were seated immediately. However, with there not being enough servers it took 45 minutes to get our chips. Then almost an hour to get our food mind you it was just my friend and me. I think that management should understand that reservations take priority and if they do not have the staffing to accommodate walk-ins that they can politely inform customers they are no longer taking walk-ins due to short staffing.

My out-of-town guests had requested that we dine at CL. Our reservations were for 415, so still a small crowd already at their tables. Our server was very attentive, from the first moment, straight through the entire experience. As we dined, the restaurant filled up, but I could see that our server was keeping a close eye on our needs. Our food and drink was delicious, and it made our Christmas celebration even more enjoyable than it may have been. The four of us span in age, 2 1/2 to 65, and we all had a delightful first visit 🎄

Upon arrival the table type we booked was not available. We were seated at the bar; we waited for 15 minutes without even a drink order. We left the restaurant. It’s too bad, was excited to try it out! Awful experience.

Not the best experience. Doubt I’ll return. When we were seated at a booth the seats were too far from the table. I adjusts the seat so we could be more comfortable. The server was very nice and quick. Our appetizer plates were dirty. I ordered a blueberry margarita that was very pretty and had a bug floating inside. After that I pretty much lost my appetite. The meal was decent. 3 stars at most. We ended up wrapping up early and heading down the street to Tupelo Honey for drinks and a snack.

Great first time. Waitresses “Coke” and I forgot the name of the other waitress; they were very helpful and friendly. They ensured that my dinner date with my boyfriend’s mom and brothers would go well! I’ll be returning.

Both my son and I had the tres fajitas and they were amazingly delish! The tortillas are definitely the best part as a rubbery or chewy tortilla can ruin any mexican dish. We will definitely return again!

Except for being out of guacamole (how does that happen) we had a great meal with large portions of delicious food. The fajitas were sizzling and plentiful. The steak burrito was huge and stuffed with steak and goodies. The margaritas were good, if a little light in the tequila as most restaurants are.

We were staying down the Oceanfront to celebrate my daughter's birthday. The night before her birthday we decided to do Mexican as that is my daughter's favorite type of cuisine. When we arrived we were a bit confused as to how to get up to the second level but after some looking around we saw the elevator.

When we first arrived the hostess was not very friendly. She never greeted us formally she just asked how many. She sat us in a section we specifically requested not to be seated in. Once, we were seated we had the best server EVER!! He was very personable and pleasant.

We were in a large group and EVERYONE at the table was more than pleased with EVERYTHING we ordered. The guacamole and queso combination was AWESOME!! There was enough balance of heat and savory flavors to balance out pure soul goodness in every single bite. We also tried the Blueberry Margaritas which seemed flavorful in the description but when we got them the lessened alcohol amount made it kind of disappointing. When the food came out all of our mouths dropped in complete disbelief. The amount of food on each plate was very pleasing to the eye and tummy. The carne asada fajitas were FAN-TAB-U-LOUS!!! Some members of my party had the Tres Fajitas which came with bacon wrapped and stuffed shrimp...... all stated they were delicious. The Chicken Fajitas were also good.... tje pieces of chicken were seasoned very well and had very large cuts of meat. There were so e other very unique things ordered that all received RAVE reviews from my party. When we are back in the area we will definitely visit again and hope that it is not raining so that we can eat outdoors

My friend and I met for lunch and both had different salads for lunch. My friend was perfectly satisfied with hers, and mine was tasty except that on the way home I realized that it was missing the avocado and candied walnuts, Both of which I had been really looking forward to, but I was enjoying the time with my friend. I believe it was an oversight, but I also don’t believe that the customer should have to memorize The items included on what they ordered. We also asked for lemon when the water was brought to us, but the lemon only arrived when we were nearly done with our meal. We sat outside and not only did our water get warm, but only once did someone come by to fill our glasses. The Server brought only one paper menu for the two of us, and when we opened it it had three splotches of some red dried sauce on it – – not appetizing!
There was a nice breeze, and it was fairly comfortable even though it was hot. Unfortunately, a paper shredder truck was parked right next to the building for awhile (30 minutes at least) and created somewhat of a racket.
I think sitting inside would solve a few of these problems, But not all.

Well, not to blame anyone individually, but the short-staffing meant that we didn't receive our food for more than hour after we placed the order. While we waited, the staff was spread too thin to refill our drinks. [Note that the restaurant was only about 1/3 filled].

It's a nice place, but I'm gonna wait til they fix the staffing problem before returning. I wish they had warned us before we sat down.
