In these Covid times we found this establishment to be quite enjoyable
Better than ever! The menu choices available through their specials, and the execution, just keeps getting more and more impressive. For example, we had the special tlayuda and then the whole, fried bronzino, and the special chicken preparation (cannot recall the name) and each dish was truly exceptional. The regular menu is varied and includes many dishes not found in the typical Mexican restaurant. Their "Mexican sandwiches" are unique and fantastic -- great for takeout, as are their soups (tortilla and soup of the day).
It's a bit pricey for Mexican cuisine. My flautas were largely flavorless, but my friend really liked her fajitas.
Very good and authentic cuisine. Great change of pace compared to Mexican chain restaurants.
Nice place; food was ok.
Would give it another try.
Arrived early for our reservation and were seated within 5 minutes. A woman dropped off water and chips than about 20 minutes later I had to go up to the hostess station to ask for a server. Someone was finally sent over and he said sorry we have new people tonight, took our dinner order, brought our soup than that was all we saw of him until we were done eating (food runner brought our entrees). Food was very slow coming out and our table was not bussed between courses
Second time I've had awful service here. I also just got an email that I was a no show for my reservation so I won't get the dining rewards. Food was good but not worth terrible service. Oh we did get a free soda for having to wait so long.
Great place, delicious food and wonderful service.
Delicious,cannot wait to go back
Great authentic food and definitely like the touch of artwork and aroma of fajitas
Perfect meal. She makes the best Tres Leche cakes each and every time.
Great place I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant just try it and you won’t be disappoint
Food is great. Service is acceptable but it would be nice if they checked to see if the food is ok and if anything is needed after bringing to the table. The sampler appetizer is really good but ask for extra tortillas to go with the queso fundido, they only give you one - difficult when sharing. Fish tacos, carne asada, plantains all delicious. Authentic Mexican food.
This is the best Mexican restuarant in the area. The food is fresh and always excellent. I hope they continue to thrive
Small , cozy energetic atmosphere with great service and food. I had the Mahi tacos which were delicious!!
Delicious, fresh, authentic Mexican in NJ! So glad we found this place! Wasn't sure what to expect because some people complained about it being pricy, but the potions are large and sharable. Four of us left stuffed and took home dinner leftovers for about $80. The empanadas, fried Mahi tacos and chicken fajitas were so tasty. Also tried the rice and beans, tortilla soup. The spicy sauces served with chipstooped with a bean and cheese sauce were also a savory delight before our meals came. Looking forward to going back to try other menu items!
Food was fabulous; best shrimp I ever had!
Very noisy large parties were the only drawback.
Very Friendly and accommodating. Great Food! great value!
We will be back. It could be a regular refuge!
Food is always fresh ingredients and the staff are always attentive and friendly!!!
Authentic mexican food, great service. We order something different everytime and we are never disappointed.
Awesome authentic food.
My wife and I eat here fairly regularly as we live about 10 minutes away. We have always had great experiences and love the mom-and-pop feel. in fact, we chose to eat here for both my wife's birthday and our 10-year anniversary that says a lot. Highly recommended!
We did not like this place at all. The food was very bland. The food was not very hot either. I had steak fajitas and they were very fatty! Terrible really. We wanted to give this place a try but won’t be back.
My family and I tried this restaurant for the first time. The food and service were excellent, the place was clean and lovely decor. Prices were reasonable. We will be back!:)
Food was fantastic, very authentic! Would highly recommend it.
I found this restaurant to be beautiful, authentic and the service was fabulous. The food was delicious and the presentation matched the website which is very unusual. I love that the music was soft and we did not have to shout at each other. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and plan on going back.
Our experience was unfortunate, yet wonderful! My husband and I had gotten into a car accident on our way to have dinner at the restaurant. The scene was right across route 70 at the gas station—directly across from the restaurant. My car had been towed, so while we waited for our ride, we decided to walked across the road and still grab a bite to eat. The hostess asked us about a reservation and we told her that we had to miss and cancel it due to the accident. She had noticed the scene across the street when it happened and offered her sincere apologies as she brought us right to a table. The service throughout our meal was lovely, as our waitress (who knew about our experience) was very polite and sweet, even when my eyes were still soaked and puffy. By the end of our meal, my in-laws has arrived at the restaurant to pick us up. The staff had brought over extra chairs for them to sit at the table with us, and they even gave us dessert on the house with enough forks for all of us. The food was delicious and the people were wonderful throughout our entire experience. After all we had gone through, dining at Cielito Lindo was the best part of our day. I am so grateful for the respect and kindness we were given, and I will absolutely be returning to this restaurant... without any car issues!! :)
Took my daughter for her birthday. We both had a lava bowl, one chicken and one shrimp. They were both delicious! Very hot bowls! She enjoyed her chicken soup and my salad was equally good.
We will be going back! The staff was very nice and helpful, a nice place for authentic Mexican cuisine.
Read about in S jersey magazine. Date night with wife and totally enjoyed.
Delicious food, BYO, excellent service, prices fair. Recommend highly.
A neighborhood gem in Medford! They set you up with chips/refriedbean/salsas really nicely to start. Tortilla soup was delicious and wonderfully presented. Chicken verde enchiladas and chicken tacos were awesome- good spicyness & not overrun with cheese. Very much like the places in Mexico that we love. And the house margarita (virgin) is a nice less-sweet mix - just bring your own Tequila :) Next time we will try their patio. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
We love this place! Great authentic Mexican! Love the cheese empanadas they are fantastic!!! Service a little slow but who cares it’s worth the wait ! We love to sit outside , they’ve taken a little patio and made it cute ❤️🎉
Second and LAST visit. Waited forever for a waitress to acknowledge us and then, she gets the wrong order. Not an apology, nothing. My husband’s meal was bland, stale and old. The guacamole and pico de gallo looked and tasted weeks old. I refused to re-order. Their menu is also deceiving: they list an appetizer platter in plural but the items you get are single ones for $21!!! Then they had the nerve to send a Spanish speaking person to our table when we barely understand the language (talk about stereotyping). Horrible service, overpriced food, and tasteless food.
There is no better place for authentic mexican food in South Jersey. From the Tortilla soup to the Lava bowls the food is absolutely outstanding. You cannot beat it!
Our visit was tainted by 2 events:
First, it was a fly convention indoors. I can't enjoy my meal if I have to chase flies away from me and the table every 30 seconds.
Second, they marked me as a no-show, which invalidated my dining reward.
Great food. Excellent service
Always a great dinner at Cielito Lindo. Food is very authentic, layers and layers of flavor in each bite. Not the typical mushy, beans and cheese Mexican that a lot of Mexican restaurants serve around here in Southern NJ. Service is always friendly and attentive. Prices are great with the quality of food you receive. Will be back for sure, very soon.
