                        Boring food. Nothing special here. Just uninteresting Mexican food. No thanks.

                        Not bad place but a bit pricey for what it was. Tacos are 5 a piece. Drinks were priced decently and tasted good . Guac and chips were good. However I up getting sick after the meal from the Tacos. Service was good and ambience was nice but won’t be going back.

                        GOOD food with a nice variety of reasonable items on the menu at a range of price options. Delicious warm chips and great guac for sure. Overall the pricing is fair. Good variety of drink options both non-alcoholic and alcoholic. Family friendly for sure. The music was too loud for good conversation in a few of areas so might need to select your location a bit more carefully. Food and drink arrived quickly. One pet peeve, the service was ok but not spectacular, even at a not super busy time, however when the payment machine was presented, the server had already selected the button for a 25% tip. That feels a bit coercive and caught me off guard, leaving me a slightly bad feeling at the end of what was otherwise a good visit. I will go back at some point, but probably not too soon.

                        We liked the food and menu options at Comida, and our server was capable attentive. The taco choices are small-ish (street sized), but generously filled. The roasted beet taco is delicious for those wanting to try something different. I was underwhelmed with the sangria. The portion size was small and flavor nonexistent.

                        The bartender was the server as well, although a slow day—there was a lack of attentiveness to our table. Drinks are overly priced to be served in (miniature) glasses smaller than the water. Chef’s kiss to the cook working Thursday around 2PM!

                        I thought the food was just ok for the price. The margs were ok also. A little disappointed. I was there a few months back and food was much better. Maybe not a great kitchen night?

                        It was not busy on a Thursday night but service was very slow at the bar. We had the chips w/3 salsas. Good chips. We had a shrimp burrito and chimayo chile chicken bowl. Good portions and we liked it all. Coin margaritas very also very good.

                        stopped in for a quick lunch. Had chips n guac (solid - guac was on the spicy side fyi). Carnitas tacos - pretty good, though I feel the sweet potato/cheese spread makes up for what are really dry carnitas. Arrachera tacos - overwhelmed with carmelized onions. Didn't like this one Jicama/Watermelon "salad" with Tajin - was fine Carnitas bowl - see above - that meat was really dry. Margarita - ordered a coin style and tasted of marg mix - very acidic and couldn't make it past a couple sips. Tacos were wildly overfilled - had to delete about half of the ingredients to pick up. Overall not great. Not terrible, but.... Seems like chefs are trying too hard.

                        Misters or fans on patio would help. The tables get hot from the sun and hold the heat forever. Even when they’re back in the shade. Or get wooden or patio wire mess tables.

                        The outdoor patio is pretty boring and drab considering the rest of the perimeter. There are no sail coverings nor umbrellas to shield the sun. Our waitress started out strong for our 5:45 pm reservation but after our food was dropped off, we never saw her again. I would have happily imbibed on another coin margarita or two but she never checked back. We waited for about 15 mins after we finished our meal and had to go inside to see what was up. I looked around and it was not busy inside so not really sure what the problem was. The hostess was on top of it however, and she let our waitress know. It's very disappointing that after all that time away from dining out during the pandemic, service can still be terrible when you do go out.

                        Choices were great especially because one gust was gluten free. The waiter was attentive but not overly so. We had efficient service allowing plenty of time to attend VanGogh.

                        Food came lickety-split. It was delicious. We sat outside and the evening was gorgeous, although there was intermittent music that was somewhat annoyingly loud. Servers were very friendly, and we appreciated the table side bill-pay. Looking forward to my next visit!

                        The service was really awful. This is the first time that I have experienced this at Comida. Chelsea was rude, rolled her eyes at my two elderly parents who could not hear her over the background noise - put both their orders on one plate ? They were confused and waiting for the other plate and she came over and spoke to them in a tone that obnoxious people use with those they feel are intellectually disabled, offered the tables around us more chips but never offered us any additional chips though our guacamole was only 1/2 done, brought over the check while my mother was still eating and then had the gall to ask her if she could take her plate. It was pretty shocking. My parents don’t want the cooks and front staff to not receive tips so didn’t say a word and tipped fully but I had to call the manager to discuss her attitude. He was very receptive but if you experience this - let the restaurant know.

                        Our server was wonderful. The speaker above our table seemed to be blown and sounded very crackly. Our server was kind enough to turn down the volume so it was better for our overall experience.

                        Everything was good - there are taco places I like better, but nothing wrong w this place. There tacos are slightly more expensive than other taco places and not necessarily better for the piece. I came here bc we wanted to go to Stanley Marketplace to walk around and have some nightlife before and after dinner - Comida is a solid restaurant choice if you want to be at The Stanley Marketplace.
