Slow in getting the main dish. The Branzino was not properly filet’d and ended up almost eating some of the bones.
Love the atmosphere, love the food. The service is excellent.
A great restaurant, with chef created menu items.
Service was sub par. Either they were under staffed or the service personnel were new. Either way, could have been improved.
Great place !!!
The food is amazing, as was the service. We just wished that the pricing was a little more conservative so that we could go more often.
Amazing flavors. Every dish was perfectly prepared.
Easter Brunch. Food was outstanding. A bit pricey but worth the expense.
Amazing as always
It’s nice to discover this cute restaurant in Tustin . The ambience was great, very attractive interior decor. Food is good, but service can be better. The servers keep forgetting bring utensils, drinks . Other than that, we had a great time. Definitely will go back
Food was great! Very different and an exciting menu.
The server was very kind but it felt like the service was a bit slow and we definitely would have ordered more drinks but he didn’t come around often enough for us to add more drink and food items.
Would return and recommend though.
Great ambiance overall! Delicious and unique food & drinks. Definitely a place I’ll go back to soon!
Chaak is a lovely restaurant. The ambience was great and service impeccable. I found the menu to be a bit too simple and a bit on the pricy side. However, the food was quite delicious. I would recommend it especially cute for a Date night.
Came for brunch and left happy and full. Can’t go wrong on any of the items. Favorite dishes were the clams and the cochineal pubil torta. Great ambiance and service. Can see this place hopping at night!
The only think I liked about this place is the ambiance.
Food was not good at all. Small portions and exaggeratingly over priced. The taste was just not there and not worth what they are charging.
The drinks seemed did not have consistency, sometimes the same drink was really good and the next time it was mediocre.
Our service was amazing
We go every couple of weeks so that says it's always good. We tend to go at lunch because they have a steak dish that my husband loves. Dinner is great food also .
Had a great time, food and drink were great. Bartenders were awesome and really friendly and gave good first date advice. Thanks Fellas.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Will definitely eat here again!
Service was extremely slow. The empanadas were under filled and not good. The chayote was tasty but very hard. The drinks were good but again, took a very long time to receive them. It was disappointing to say the least, especially for the price.
tasty food + drinks! would definitely recommend to a friend. will definitely be back again.
It’s a good gringo take on Yucatán food. Yucatán food predates modern Mexican food and balances sweetness with spicy (eg habanero). At Chaak, it’s all sweetness, no spice. It’s essentially American Modern with Mexican influence and some Yucatán inspiration. The food was good, the restaurant was beautiful, and the overall experience was positive. I’m glad I tried it, but I wouldn’t go back. Chichen Itza and La Flor De Yucatan Bakery are far more authentic and interesting Yucatán options.
Fantastic surprise. The food was interesting an delicious. Loved the octopus and charred red cabbage salad. The drinks were wonderful.
Fantastic as always. Food is amazing, service was great, and we’re looking forward to next time!
We live the food and cocktails....but Megan made our dining experience memorable!!
Food was pretty good and the drinks were amazing!! Will def come back!!
nice location in old town tustin. vibrant and active restaurant full of intriguing and creative food and drinks. very tough menu--so many incredible dishes from which to choose. our advice is to get a bunch of items and you can always take it home. would definitely go again
they have added some extra menu items. We tried the grilled red cabbage, beet salad and it was fabulous.
Chaak never disappoints. My husband's and my favorite place. Great food, great service. Took my daughter last week for her birthday. Her first time and she can't wait to go back. Also nice that I can sit at the bar (sadly not with my daughter till her next birthday).
We had a great first experience.. Will be back for sure 😊
Chaak’s food is wonderful! always creative and the cocktails are amazing ... love the ambiance and the music ... gorgeous place!
Freezing cold, heaters barely worked, seating is packed to the gills, no social distancing at all, food was just ok, food arrived randomly and was room temp. Drinks took 30 minutes. Seems like now they are packing out both outdoor and indoor seating.
Excellent every time
Great tasting food, ambiance and margaritas
Great food and great service. Loved the patio set up outside.
One of the focal points of the restaurant is the retractable roof. However, we didn’t feel it was necessary to have it open on a night where the temperature was under 50 degrees. We requested inside dining with the weather in mind and were very cold the whole time. It would have been warmer under the outside heaters. Our server was somewhat busy, but was still fairly attentive. His wine knowledge wasn’t great and when asked which wine was full-bodied and well-rounded to dry, he gave us a sample of a light Italian blend. The second wine was a dry cab, which was an improvement but still not what we were looking for, and we settled because we could tell he was getting frustrated and had other tables to attend to. The margaritas we started with were great. The food was good as well, almost everything has quite a bit of spice, so be warned. Unfortunately everything got cold very quickly due to the temp inside the dining room.
We love this restaurant. just discovered it, and keep returning, as often as possible.
Our favorite date night spot. Great food and service. The House Margaritas are amazing!
The portions are small. I’m not sure if I want to come back again soon
Service was amazing, cocktails delicious, food was authentic and so tasty. All around amazing and I’d definitely go back!!
Wonderful food enjoyed very much!!
