We were bummed that the restaurant was out of the Mexican fry bread...but everything was yummy and great service.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, Emily! We are happy to hear you enjoyed your experience. We will pass along your feedback and positive comments to our management team. We hope to see you again soon!
For a covid-cautious diner, this place is excellent. On a regular day it would also be outstanding (great food, service, and interesting menu options!) would definitely return (was great for a date night)
Thank you KA Denver! We appreciate the feedback! Michael GM
Excellent! Have been several times and will continue to visit.
Thank you so much! Looking forward to seeing you soon! Michael GM
fron the start, everyone was incredibly rude. they had messed up our reservation and blamed us before seating us. after seating we ordered drink and apps and food. our appetizers came out with our food (which took over 45 minutes) and our drinks took 15 minutes. it than took them forever to give us our check. we paid but their online system had messed up and they tried to charge us twice for a meal when the bank statement shown he had paid. the entire night they were incredibly rude and the food and drinks was not what you expected
Thank you for the great service and attention to covid protocols!

Came here on a Saturday with a friend for happy hour and it was okay. The reason we chose this restaurant was because of the "20 pitchers of sangria" advertised. We told the server we wanted to order that and she said that wasn't an option...after showing her the website, she came back and said ok. We ordered queso fundido (which was cold), ceviche (which was salty), and cauliflower tacos (which were great). The service was okay, nothing special. We probably will not return as it was an underwhelming experience.
Super good food and service but the margaritas are not strong at all. I had 3 and didn’t feel anything. They were tasty but for $9 a piece I would have expected a little bit more of a buzz.
The ambience was nice, went here with some friends and we were able to catch up without having to yell. Cute little place for dinner and a few drinks.
We tried the Torta Milanesa which was done with Carne Asada and the Tacos with Navajo frybread. The food was simply amazing!
Patio seating has been expanded - service was attentive and friendly.
Apple Spice Margarita was excellent.
Great place! Good food but small portions.
Wonderful and service.
Made reservation for 8 people after confirming that we would be able to sit together. Reservation was for 7pm, but received a call stating it was at 6:30pm and that they would give our table away if it we didn’t arrive. Arrived at restaurant and they said we had to sit outside because they could not have more than 6 people seated inside together. If there was a miscommunication when calling ahead I understood and didn’t have an issue with sitting outside. About 20 minutes after being outside, I noticed there was a table of 7 and another of 8 sitting inside. It was very hot that day and sitting outside was not ideal. I spoke with manager and he said his host just did what she wanted and apologized. At that point my guests had drinks and appetizers ordered and did not want to move inside. Manager gave us a free dessert.
Ok, so I rated them really well overall, just low on ambience because I think we were the only people there, which was weird. Happy hour from 3-6 daily y’all! Even weekends! We had the cauliflower and Brussels sprouts which were really good, but ask for the sauce on the side. It’s a little weird. The celebrity tequila flight will break your heart, because Clooney’s and P. Diddy’s tequilas are really good, but you’ll want to buy a bottle for home... and they’re both really expensive. Still, I will be back to try more of the foo, and hopefully it’ll be busier next time!
Hi Libby, We are all feeling the effects of COVID 19 and I wish that that we were busier and had all of our team back! I appreciate your feedback and glad you had a good time. Spread the word about our happy hour! Michael GM
This was a disaster. Our server just never came out, we had a 9:00 pm reservation and didn’t even have a glass of water until 9:30 pm.
I walked in to find a manager and he approached me then just said “ya your server quit” he brought food to the table in attempt to remedy the mess and the food itself was a MESS. Empanadas frozen and or cold. Tacos cold on this giant bread. It was just not worth any of it. Should have stayed home.
The Navajo fry bread tacos are INSANELY good! Specifically the Mahi tacos, I was really impressed with. Also, fantastic customer service. Definitely will be back!
Happy hour menu is really great. We have a tradition of eating here while visiting daughter. Never disappoints!
Thanks for the great comments. See you next time you visit your daughter. Michael GM
Their happy hour is excellent. I took myself out for happy hour and ordered their classic margarita and guac & pico. All delicious. I recommended that my friends join me next time.
Thanks for the great feedback Sarah! I am so happy you had a great time. See you soon! Michael GM
Tacos with fry bread are delicious..and service was quick, efficient, conscientious. Especially pleased with all they were doing in response to COVID. One of our favorite places.
Thanks for the great feedback Jim! We all look forward to seeing back in Kachina soon! Michael GM
Food was amazing! We split the smoked salmon Benedict and the breakfast enchiladas and they both hit the spot.
Amazing food and cocktails. Super quick service and all the precautions are being taken during COVID. Highly recommend!
Usually very good which is why we go back. This particular time, the fry bread was hard and dense so I ate everything outside of the Navajo taco plate. We also ordered roasted corn guacamole but the corn didn’t look charred nor taste roasted. It was very sweet. It was definitely an off day but very good tacos, Palomas, margaritas, and especially the coconut flan is why we keep coming back.
Hi Jill Sorry we didn't exceed your expectations! I do hope that you will return again! Michael GM
I felt so safe eating at this restaurant! I would definitely go back with how safe and clean it was. All food that they brought out was plastic wrapped to reduce any risk while moving through the restaurant. Masks on when server was present. Wiped down the table right in front of us. Outdoor atmosphere was nice. Loved the chipotle guac and carne asada tacos!
Thank you so much for the feedback Jessica and I am so happy that you felt safe. We re trying our best to provide and safe environment for our guests and team the best that we can. We all loo forward to seeing you again soon! Michael GM
The cocktails are delicious, and the food is very fresh and plentiful.
I had a very good experience dining there. Highly recommend if you are looking for quality Mexican food with a nice relaxed atmosphere.
Thank you for the great feedback! I am thrilled that we exceeded your expectations. Looking forward to seeing you back in Kachina soon! Michael GM
We visited for a small birthday dinner. One person in our party already had too much to drink and so was just having food. When drinks were served, our server brought a tequila flight. We immediately commented we did not order this. They stated that the incoherent intoxicated person ordered it, which they would have been incapable of ordering, and even if they could've strung together the words, no responsible server would ever fill that order. (For the record, this friend personally gets a 1 star review for behavior that night too.) The server did not remove the taster tray.
When we got the bill, the tray was on there. We repeated that we did not order it. Eventually they removed it. When we were leaving, another member of the group commented how odd it was the restaurant did not bring anything for a birthday gift or even commented on it. The bartender snapped at us that the tequila tray was the birthday gift.
This restaurant is in a great part of town with many quality restaurants surrounding it. I would not give Kachina Cantina my business again or recommend to others.
Absolutely loved the atmosphere & our server! And they are amazing with the cdc guidelines. Everything is wrapped to protect from any germs. Love it!
Thank you so much for the feedback! I am so happy you enjoyed everything and we all look forward to seeing you back in Kachina soon! Michael GM
Ambiance is great, wish I could say the same about the food. Underwhelming and comes out with cling wrap bc of Covid which is extremely unappetizing
Great to sit outside, staff were very diligent about social distancing...
Tacos are a great value. Loved the tomato/corn sticks. Skinny margarita was perfect, not too sweet. Friendly, caring staff.
I thought they did an amazing job making me feel comfortable and welcome. Their safety and cleanliness was impeccable
Mask while entering and moving to and from the table
Great food and service as always and the Sangria is Amazing!
Thanks for the 5 stars! Our patio is the perfect place to enjoy that Sangria all Summer long. See you soon, Michael GM
The food was amazing. Definitely try the guac trio and the tomato corn fries - yum :)
And the Kachina Paloma hit the spot - so tasty - not too sweet, just cocktail perfection! And thanks to the wonderful staff - the whole dine-in experience felt safe and welcoming. We will be back!
Thanks for the great feedback Sam. We all look forward to seeing you back in Kachina soon! Michael GM
Grant is great, makes the experience much better when he’s there.
Thanks for highlighting Grant! We enjoy him as well Michael GM
Fantastic place to have dinner. Our waiter was very nice and attentive. Excellent date night spot, I would highly recommend.
Our waiter was very attentive and food came out quickly. Definitely loved the margs and tacos! However, the dessert options for Denver Restaurant Week were not great. Ice cream flavors were odd.
I have never had a bad meal here! The food is great and the service is always excellent!
Loved the charred tomatoe salsa, it was the perfectly spicy.
This was a fun place to go for a birthday celebration. It was perfect for sharing food and margaritas with friends and our server went out of her way to make sure the birthday was extra special. Service was slow, however. We were there for over 2 hours.
Great innovative menu for affordable prices! Great vibrant energy. Love the decor!
