    Once of our favorites! Delicious creative Mexican cuisine. We live in L.A. and try to get here on the way to/from SD or Newport as often as possible.

    We had a lovely evening on the street side patio, sitting under the glorious huge trees and getting a nice gentle background sound from the loudish music inside. The food was top notch and not your typical Mexican cuisine. The flavors were unique and everything from the cocktails to dessert was delicious. Ryan was our waiter and he and the rest of the staff took great care of us in a laid back but super attentive way. We will be back.

    Great food and ambiance and good service, but the Pescatarian options are limited, so we don’t go to Chaak as much as we might.

    Food and service was amazing! We’ll be back! Loved the Cerviche and Empanadas for appetizers. We all got something different for lunch. Steak, steamed clams, enchiladas spicy sausage flatbread and Cuban sandwich. They were all delicious and Bambi’s for dessert. Cocktails were great too!

    My wife and I had an excellent dinner and we will definitely come back. Try the Bombas for dessert! Chef Jonathan is a rockstar. Somebody give that man a tv show.

    We had another great meal at Chaak. The food and drinks were delicious, and our server was able to space it out at a leisurely pace. We usually request to sit outside because we are older, and it is just too loud inside for us to hear.
