Amazing seafood enchiladas
Horrible experience! I can not recommend this place.
We always have a great time and the food and drinks are delicious and reasonably priced! Got a try out the brunch as they have live music and it’s a blast!!
FOOD WAS VERY COLD - EVEN AFTER SENDING IT BACK. IT WAS A VERY BAD EXPERIENCE.
Cha Cha's is a frequent lunch or dinner destination for me. I love the carnitas but honestly,i think I've tried everything on the menu and I've enjoyed all of it. They are so friendly and the service is consistently top notch. And the Margaritas! Oh my! The very best I've ever had.
Always a wonderful time here.
Food lacks in flavor and quality ingredients, just not enough to keep coming back for.
Went to Cha Cha’s in Irvine on a Wednesday night. They had half off enchiladas plates (didn’t find out they were half priced til the bill came) which was an awesome surprise. Will definitely be going back. The fish enchiladas were delicious- would recommend trying!! Only thing that could have been better was that it took an hour to get our food (2 people/2 entree’s) and then they brought us silverware 5 minutes after our food came so we were getting a tad impatient. Overall will go back again!
We seated outside late afternnon and was no Heather and was very inconfortable to stay there because of the evening cold and win. They should have heather outside place
Nice environment, delicious food. Very polite employees
Celebrating a birthday with a small group of friends. Birthday was mentioned at reservation time and check in. Not a single greeting or happy birthday was mentioned. Drinks were out after the food came out, that is not good... Food was just ok.
We come here all the time but never on a busy Sunday. I would say that the service we are used to getting during the week probably set us up for disappointment a little as the staff was not nearly as attentive or friendly. It started with the hostess at check in. We had a reservation for 2:45 and checked in at 2:30 to let them know we had arrived and to see if there was an available table. I have two small kids so waiting in the car for more than 5 minutes usually doesn’t go over well - which I told her. She replied by saying “well you’re extremely early for your reservation and there aren’t any available tables. I’ll make a note that you’re here and text you when there is a table available.” I felt that was not only an exaggeration because we weren’t extremely early but very dismissive. 20 minutes later we hadn’t received a text so I went back to the hostess stand. She claimed she had texted me earlier but neither myself nor my husband received said text... although funny enough the text arrived mere minutes after I was already seated... once seated I told our server that we were in a hurry because by this time my toddler is already hungry and losing what little patience he possesses...that request seemed to either a) fall on deaf ears or b) not be possible with all the tables he had. Either way it took at least 15 minutes for him to get back to our table to take our order. The only saving grace was that the food came out relatively quickly once he did get around to taking our order. I asked for no crema on our entrees as I am lactose intolerant but alas the entrees came with crema. I didn’t feel like sending it back so I just scraped it off - not ideal though because the other garnishes also came off with the crema. My recommendation: come during the week for lunch and not on the weekend for brunch - unless you like being talked down to and ignored.
Staff was so friendly, caring, and accommodating due to covid fears
Great place Sergio is always friendly and his service was awesome
We go to Cha Cha’s frequently. The food is always spot on! We recently discovered the catch of the day and it’s amazing! They know how to cook fish right. No matter the type of fish, it’s always juicy and super flavorful. Also tried the calamari appetizer. Wow, what a delight! It comes with some other fried items such as fried slices of lemon. Who knew it could be so tasty!?!?! And the calamari was cooked just right. Cha Cha’s always are favorite go to restaurant. The staff is always super friendly too!
Drinks are on point here. Food is al
We had a wonderful time! The food was absolutely delicious and for a great price. I will definitely be going back soon!
The food was great as well as the happy hour prices! Only complaint is it was freezing in there.
Blah. Won’t go back. Food wasn’t good. Only good thing about this place was the cheap margaritas. Nothing else was good. Chips stale. Salsa no flavor and super running. Won’t be returning
It’s was a good time , a bit cold but still enjoyable
We took a friend there to celebrate her birthday and to do restaurant week. Everyone loved their food and the Margaritas were great too!
We had a great overall experience. The food was awesome and the service was superb. Our waiter, Derek, was very knowledgeable & super friendly. We will definitely be back!
We expected to be sitting in the outside patio, but surprisingly we got seated in the indoor patio area, which was way better. Good ambience, reminiscent of European style outdoor dining. Great food, love the mojito and sangria!
Good food great service
We made reservations for this evening to celebrate my friends birthday. The host didn’t have a table available upon arrival and i watched 3 other tables get seated before us. I inquired as to when we would be seated and she advised they were waiting for a server to show up before they would have a table for us...yet they were seating other people and telling walk-ins it was a 10 minute wait...after waiting 20 minutes we asked to sit at the bar instead of waiting any longer. Once we took the bar seats we had exceptional service from the bar! However the hostess stands service needs some help. What’s the point of having a reservation if we aren’t going to be seated before walk-ins?
The drink menu is soooo pretty! Totally amused by them.
Good food and drinks. I love coming here.
My table wasn't ready, them they left me standing in the middle of the floor waiting because they gave my table to someone else. They put me on a 6 person table when ( It a party of 2) the food was dry, the taco was pre-heated / the chicken salad I order was dry and not look good. The only thing the was good was my wine, and way over price. I wish to get my money back, $95 for Grill chicken salad / 2 tacos and 2 glasses of wine. with bad service. Not cool. I do want my money back.
Always a great experience at Cha Chas! Great service and ambiance with delicious drinks! The frozen mojito is my favorite!
They extended their patio area so it is very socially distanced!!
Going back next week 😋🥳🌸
Fantastic place, music and food were great for a Saturday afternoon out of the house.
Great food and service, was nice to eat out again safely!
Our carnitas were a bit dry this time. That was a little disappointing. Enchiladas and salmon were great. Margaritas were also good.
I love the service and the food. The resturant mamger is supet nice and caring. One of my favortie restaurant in OC.
Great place to eat had so much fun food and drinks where great
Wonderful from beginning to end!
my friends and I thought that this was one of the best meals we have ever had. Our waiter was excellent and food deliscious. recommend the short rib enchillada and queso fundito with chorizo especially.
Overall wonderful however some concern about guests waiting to get seated without masks on and I saw no one asking those people to put mask on.
Enjoyed the free chips and salsa, calamari, crab and shri p enchiladas!
Cha Chas never seems to disappoint. Ordered taco and enchilada combinations. Always fresh and flavorful. Drinks are outstanding and expertly crafted by qualified mixologists. Staff very friendly and always accommodating. If you like Mexican infused with more of a Latin flair, then you will enjoy the experience.
