We really enjoyed celebrating my husband’s 75th birthday at Casa Chapala. Service was fabulous, food was great! They had a festive centerpiece on the table, a fantastic Mariachi band who sang Happy Birthday in Spanish, and delicious Tres Leches cake for the birthday boy. Our guests all had a wonderful time.

Overall, I enjoyed the food. I had a fairly large group and they sat us very quickly. Our waiter was a little slow to get us our drinks, take orders, and give the check, but the food made up for it. I also think the price was reasonable.

Tuve un evento para 10 personas el domingo en la nooche y en general casi todo fue bueno. Respecto a la comida y el servicio del mesero fue rapido y amable, por lo que me parecio excelente. La unica razon por la que no merece una calificacion "Outstanding" es porque el sonido de la musica era EXCESIVAMENTE fuerte, estabamos en la terraza (por razones de seguridad por COVID) en la mesa mas alejada de las bocinas, y aun asi, no podia escuchar a la persona que tenia a un lado, a menos que gritaramos demasiado fuerte. Ademas era Karaoke, lo que significa que la mayoria de la musica era muy incomoda para escuchar(por lo desafinado) lol, por lo menos en la opinion de la mayoria de los que estabamos alli afuera, no solo para mis invitados. Le pedi a la persona de recepcion si era tan amable de bajar solo un poco el volumen y me dijo que no era posible. Tal vez si recomendaria ese lugar pero entre semana, cuando no haya musica.

They need to have the TV's working outside. Only one was on and it was not in our view. We missed a NBA game on Sunday expecting to be able to watch it. So that was disappointing.

This was the first time eating at Casa Chapala and it was wonderful. The outdoor patio was very nice, relaxed and easy to have a conversation in, no music or band when we were there. Their margaritas were outstanding and they were served in a really cute margarita glass which I asked if I could purchase and was allowed to purchase 2 of them, an unusual request they were very accommodating about. Great food, the waiter was very helpful with recommendations and descriptions of dishes when asked. A wonderful experience overall, will definitely go back soon.

The worst service we have ever received. Since we arrived they did not offer us a menu, then they took care of tables that arrived after us. The food came cold. After the waiter served us the food, he did not return to the table, we waited about an hour and when we stood up to pay the check, the waiter got upset and said that if we had wanted to talk to him we would have called him, but as if he was not going to our table . He had a horrible and annoying attitude because we stopped to ask for the bill. Sad experience to celebrate my anniversary.

We had a large group in to celebrate my Birthday and my “last hoorah” before I start chemotherapy for Breast Cancer. My girlfriends and I all wore colorful wigs and fully expected to draw some attention to ourselves but we were welcomed with amazing smiles and a tequila tasting! They sang to me for my Birthday, brought me a piece of tres leches cake and a giant turquoise sombrero! The drinks and were all amazing and they finished off our night with a photographer to take group shots of our party which we were able to purchase for a small price. Thank you Casa Chapala for such a fun and memorable night! I highly recommend this place for both intimate dinners or fun nights out with your friends.

Pretty great place! Love that they have live music and Mariachi. We got to eat out on the patio. Not as busy as the weekends. My only complaint was the music was way too loud to have a normal conversation.

Celebrated a friend’s birthday on the patio. Had a great time with drinks, food and conversation. Everyone had mask and they also checked temperature upon arrival. Server was very attentive to our needs for drink and chip refills. Everyone’s food arrived hot, in a timely manner and had good flavors. No complaints from myself or other guests. We brought a cake that they kept for us to serve as desert , furnishing a knife, plates, etc. well done and we have been back and continue to patronize.

Salsa and margs were great, but food was mediocre. Steak was grissly and chewy. Patio was utlra loud salsa music with poor service. Service better inside. I appreciated the care they took on virus health.

Have gone there several times lately because other restaurants are too complicated and difficult to get into with long waits. Always happy we ended up at Casa chalupa because the staff is friendly doubtless fears greatness is awesome and you can get right and/or make a reservation on like most restaurants these days

Appreciated the extra step of taking temperatures of customers before seating. Casa Chapala took all necessary precautions to ensure patron safety. As usual, the staff was friendly and helpful. The margaritas were great; especially enjoy their avocado margarita with chili salt. The entrees were hot and tasty and the tres leches cakes was moist and flavorful. Glad they are open up again for dining room service.
