    Amazing food. Service is slow if they have a large party but it is our neighborhood restaurant so we are aware when we go. I try to always make a reservation so they can staff accordingly.

    Excellent food in a casual restaurant that has apparently merged with a small chain. The menu has expanded and the food remains fine. One of the better Mexican restaurants in the area.

    The service stars I have was not because our server was bad. Alex was great. The understaffing is the issue. This is not the first time. Every server is amazing. Just not enough of them so wait time is a bit long. Special kuddos to Liz who is always on top of her game.

    There was a 3% "optional" kitchen gratuity added on to the bill. It was NOT optional. It was tacked on as part of the total. When I tipped, I tipped based on the total so I ended up tipping way more than 20%. I will NOT be returning to this restaurant nor will I be suggesting anyone go there either.

    Thé enchiladas were extremely sour. Could have been the cheese that went bad or the sauce. The server was very apologetic and embarrassed. The tortilla soup was okay.

    Bathrooms need an overhaul but someone should at least clean them before you open in the morning! The women’s stalls were like a gas station. The music overhead was very odd. Tacos and salsa were good.

    Excellent upscale Mexican food and friendly servers. I really like their mole; you don't need to get a spicy mole to enjoy the chicken enchiladas. The poblano mole is fine for me. We hope to return soon!

    It was absolutely dead in there and I fear they can't survive if that continues. Server was great as I would expect with only 3 tables. He was absolutely hustling to close the place and keep the final two table (us included) happy. There's something so strange about eating in a place that's so empty, but the food was good and my margarita was decent.

    Cinco de mayo was a disaster We waited 45 minutes before they took our drink order and had to cancel our second margaritas because they never came. My food, mushrooms with mole came uncooked : RAW portobelllos with hot Mole sauce. Uneatable Drinks were served in crappy plastic glasses. What is normally a delightful restaurant was terribly planned for this last Holiday.

    First visit to this interesting Mexican restaurant that has some very good dishes. I liked the chicken mole enchiladas that I had for dinner. They were a little spicy, but tasty. My wife liked her cheese enchiladas that were not spicy at all. There are four types of mole offered that range from not spicy to spicy. Nice atmosphere, too.

    I normally don’t write reviews but I have too first off ordered a hot chocolate with bread and when I asked for the bread the lady said we don’t have any I was ok than ordered some costillitas you couldn’t even eat them hard as F… I told her and she said she could change the plate to a birria she did it lacked flavor at this point I barely ate it and didn’t ask to take the rest as a truly Mexican I wouldn’t go here have had better service and better food in other restaurants it’s unfortunate cause I was excited to try this place out 😔

    A neat new place with delicious Mexican food. Four different types of mole. Great specialty drinks. Great sides. Great desserts. It's not the standard Mexican menu, but everything we've had has been wonderful. The new restaurant looks great. Half "Rancho hacienda" and half "neighborhood bar." We'll be back

    We've been looking forward to trying Celia's for a while and awaiting the opening. We were excited to try many (7) items on the menu. Everything was delicious except the caesar salad, way too much dressing, too wet to eat. Our server, Alex was very nice, but way too busy. He may have also been the bartender which made our service super slow. The owner ended up bringing our food out. He was also very kind. One item was sent in place of something else, since they were so busy, we ate it and and loved it, a nice mix up. Overall, we enjoyed it and will definitely come back!!!

    A huge improvement on the former Viva’s Cantina. The space is bright and clean, the staff is friendly. The menu is interesting, not typical Mexican fare but perhaps a bit overthought (and overwrought). Lots of Octopus. Given the ingredients and atmosphere, the prices seem a bit high, but I would go back.
