I live 30 minutes away from this restaurant. When our Uber drove us here and dropped us off, they told us that they were actually over booked and could not accomodate us. Their bar area was "full" too but with plenty of open seating and people leaving. We were asked to leave basically. I have came here many times before and recommended this place to many friends but will not waste my money here again. The host was rude and barely gave an explanation and could care less. I have never had an issue before like this anywhere in Denver. He also claimed he called but I pulled my phone up with zero calls or texts and he ended up just walking away because he knew he did not try. Sad. Liked the food here but will not return. Thank you Milk market for being next door and being awesome!
Great spot downtown next to the Rockies stadium - great food and atmosphere!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, Jack! We are thrilled to see you enjoyed your time with us. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
The food tasted burnt. The only good things we had were the chips and salsa, our margaritas and the Pepsi my wife ordered
We chose Kachina for our evening as it was close to our date night event. The food was great, we always have good food here. Service tonight was poor however. Waitress stopped by very few times, we had to go to the bar to grab items, and overall she did not pay any attention to if we were eating, if our food came out or if our drinks were delivered. The others tables waiter was actually much nicer to us.
That staff and food are wonderful! We loved everything that came to the table!
Can pay via QR code on receipt and makes it SO much easier to split checks
We waited 20 mins for the wait staff to address us. Only reason they did was because we tracked down the bus boy.
Ben, We apologize for making you wait so long to be greeted. I will make sure to include this in our pre-hifts moving forward so we can coach our staff on attentiveness to tables in their section.
Happy hour taco pricing is great along with Happy hour Paloma. A little more expensive after 6:00. Enjoyed the enchiladas but they were so hot when they arrived - understandably a skillet, but beware... The Mahi fish tacos were the favorite of the evening!
Brunch includes bottomless margaritas and you really can’t go wrong with the food!
The food was nice. Their spicy margarita was absolutely delicious. Great service for sure.
It was just extremely hot and uncomfortable!
Thanks for your feedback! We just fixed our AC and promise you next time you come in that it will be much more comfortable. Thanks for still giving an honest review!
Didn’t like their service, food is not tasty and pricey for the quantity.
Would have been a 5 but the flashing of their fire alarm continued through our whole dinner…just the light flashing but it was giving us a headache.
Poor service. Only saw our waiter twice. The food was so gross, we didn’t finish and were sick to our stomachs the rest of the day.
Bar took forever for drinks. Server had no clue what anything was on the menu. They were out of half the stuff we ordered. Food was not that great. Over-cooked/dry pork chop. Salad was over dressed.
Burke, We appreciate your feedback and will make sure the necessary outlets hear about your thoughts. We hope to give you a better experience next time you visit us.
Strange that the host would put us out in the lobby of the Maven Hotel. We had them move us closer to the kitchen and bar where we wanted to be. We loved the Pozole and Aquachille appetizers but our entree arrived 5 minutes after we started :( . Overall this is not a fine dining experience
Allen, We are so glad you enjoyed our apps! We are definitely not a fine dining restaurant as our Cantina concept is inviting to guests of all kind who like modern twists on mexican cuisine. We appreciate your feedback and will coach our team to course out apps/entrees better.
Always Tasty! Love the spot and their food is delish.

We’ve dined at Kachina cantina before, but this visit didn’t meet our expectations. I was pleased that a member of the F&B Management reached out personally after the meal to seek more feedback on our experience. That’s proof that they DO care about quality and want to make continuous improvements.
Really wasn’t worth the hype. The food was just ok and the service was not good. Wouldn’t go back.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us! Thank you for choosing Kachina Cantina - Denver.
Really impressed with the leadership/management at Kachina!
While the food was delicious, our waiter was wildly incompetent & I would highly suggest considering a new location if you’re not set on this food. It was THAT bad of an experience.
Tasty tacos on fry bread. Loved the blood orange margaritas. Service was slow, but friendly. A bit overpriced for southwestern/Mexican food, but in line with the part of town. Good atmosphere, sat at high top table for 6 near bar.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your tacos and blood orange margaritas. We will pass along your feedback and positive comments to our management team. We hope to see you again soon!
Our waiter was sarcastic and took forever even though we were the only people eating. Drinks were tiny for the price. Great food
Leah, Thanks for providing us with feedback we can use to better our staff. We hope to see you in Kachina again in the near future.
Food was fantastic but service wasn’t good. I made a reservation on Open Table and it required me to sign up for Sangria for two (brunch) but the restaurant knew nothing about it. They also weren’t familiar with a gift card I had that was purchased from their site.
Sally, We apologize for being unprepared when you visited us on Saturday. Thank you for the feedback as we can continue to train new staff members that have joined our team recently. Please come see us again soon so we can provide better service next time.
When we arrived, our table outside wasn’t ready so we had to be seated indoors... which was fine. We sat at our table for 30 min before anyone even acknowledged that we were sitting there. They brought us water and took our drink order. It took them another 20 minutes for them to bring us our drinks. I saw our drinks sitting at the bar this entire time. By the time our drinks got to us, they were all watered down. Waiter only came by our table once after getting our food to refill our water. Food was great, service was terrible.
My friends order came out and was the wrong plate but they brought her correct plate out immediately and also left the other plate for the table. Honest mistake. Good customer service. Food was decent and a little overpriced for the quality but also to be expected for the location. Overall good. I’d go back for the $20 pitchers of sangria.
Thanks for the review Kels120. We will use your feedback to better our staff. Sangria Saturdays are awesome - try out our bottomless brunch options as well going from 10a - 2p on Saturdays and Sundays. Happy hour everyday from 4-6 pm
Great atmosphere and excellent food. Red snapper was priciest at $26 but so worth it because of freshness and taste. We had to wait a bit for service but all the staff was friendly and accommodating.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, Diana! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us. We will pass along your feedback and positive comments to our management team. We hope to see you again soon!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, Frederick! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with us. We hope to see you again soon!
Service was excellent. Our server knew the menu and was attentive. Energy was lively without being too loud. Food was OK; nothing outstanding about the flavors.
Wayne, Thanks for the review. We will take your commentary seriously and try to deliver a better product for you on your next visit. We promise to deliver the next time you make it in to Kachina!
They need to heavily salt everything from the salsas to the actual meats.
Always get the taco plate with fry bread- best value. The agua frescas also needed flavor. I don’t understand the hype because everything from the water to the tacos NEEDED ALOT MORE FLAVOR.
Also- made a reservation and the host sat us at a terrible table - it’s like if I made the reservation- I want a table at the bar or with a view - something.
Thanks for your feedback on our food/drink and host. We take your commentary seriously and will use it to better our staff.
Fun location in downtown Denver. Food was very good. Interesting menu options. It was not crowded, but service was just so-so.
Churro waffles are the best waffles I ever had.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your churro waffles. We will pass along your feedback and positive comments to our management team. We hope to see you again soon!
The salsa flight is overpriced and not very good. It’s like a scoop of each so a few bites and it’s gone.
The entrees were also meh. Not terrible but not great either. For 2 people at brunch with an app it was $86. You can get better food for the same price all around. The ambience was nice but that is it.
Thanks for your feedback on our brunch menu. Give us a try for Happy Hour for steep discounts everyday from 3-6 PM!
Food was amazing, drinks were also yummy. Just wish we had refills on our water. We were there for an hour & 45 min & our water was never filled. Drinking margs & mimosas we needed to stay hydrated. We forgot to ask when the waitress came by, but that to me should be a no brainer on the waitress’s side. Other than that it was good!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, Aimee! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your food. We will pass along your feedback and comments to our management team. We hope to see you again soon!
Food was marginal. Staff was marginal. It irritated them that we wanted to pay our tab with cash even though there are no signs ANYWHERE that we saw, stating they accepted credit cards only. Will not be returning to this establishment.
Amazing food for amazing prices! Get the brussel sprouts. You won’t regret it.
My friends and I had a fabulous time! Staff and food was amazing.
