Had our first dine in experience here this weekend. Super cute little place. We ordered the sampler app, fajitis & enchiladas. The best Mexican food I've had in a long time. All the employees were super attentive. If you like a marg on the rox, make sure to bring your fav tequila and ask for a pitcher of their "virgin margarita".

Cielito Lindo has become one of our "go to" places for a great meal. The food is fantastic every time. We have some regular favorites, and the specials often tempt us to try something new. We like to take our own tequilla or mezcal to add to their margarita, making it so affordable to have a nice drink with dinner. Service is always friendly and professional. And we've started ordering catering from them too - we just can't get enough!

We’ve never had a bad meal at Cielito Lindo. The daily menu is great, and the specials are amazing. Most recently we enjoyed the outdoor seating, and it was lovely. Space heaters took the edge off a cool night. Regalo provided spectacular service. He was attentive, made wonderful recommendations, and is full of personality. We will be back again and again.

Food was good. People working there are very nice, but it took a while to be seated even though we had a reservation, and the food also took quite awhile to arrive after ordering. At least 45 minutes.

What a hidden gem?! Impromptu date with my husband and our son. Everything was absolutely delicious from the empanadas to the fish tacos and finishing off with the Tres Leches and churros. Our server was delightful and also a proud father. He engaged our son and sent him home with some cactus that he was super curious about! We will definitely be back!

The new outdoor dining pavilion is terrific. We were well-distanced from other diners and enjoyed a wonderful evening. The kitchen at Cielito remains consistently excellent -- every dish we ordered was maxed in flavor and nicely executed. We anticipate lots of return visits.

Second time there. Food is always good and authentic. Outside dinning but undercover if raining. They have a volcano bowl which is good if you get the chance. This time we had skirt steak and enchilada's with an appetizer of mussels with chorizo and cheese. Very good, very filling-first time out in six months-We were the only ones there for most of the meal-good food and nice causal atmosphere.
