    A little disappointed that when I made the reservation, no where on line did it say that it would be buffet only until 2:45pm. So we had to wait about 45min until we were able to order off the regular menu. Servers were nice and attentive and Food was delicious. But music videos were a bit provocative. Not appropriate for families and kids.

    Extremely loud music making conversation difficult. Large screen TVs through out showing music videos that were obnoxious while eating. They are trying to be a club but they are not. Four different entrees and all very spicy hot despite the wait person saying the items were not. It seems they spice up the protein. Couldn’t even taste the shrimp due to the heat and we all like spicy but this was way too much. Will not return

    The food at Kalaveras Covina was excellent. We had a party of ten and made our reservation thru Open Table the day before. The restaurant even called us the day of in the afternoon to confirm the reservation. Our only complaint was that it was quite loud and we were unable to talk in our group. We found ourselves having to raise our voices to hear over the music. But the service was excellent (Matt was our server) and we will probably go back again because the food was so delicious.

    Service wasn’t great, they need to hire more staff. We had to stop random staff to ask what for we needed. Our water glasses were empty for a while. Our waitress came around maybe twice the entire time. We mentioned it was my moms birthday and they forgot so after we paid the bill I had to mention it again. Took another good 20 minutes. Overall it wasn’t a great experience and we will go elsewhere for our next celebration.

    Went to celebrate, two birthdays, and the experience was amazing. Our server could’ve been more present. The ambience, drinks, and food make up for the servers lack of attentiveness.

    I was extremely excited to celebrate my anniversary, but was disappointed by my cold food and disregard to the details of my reservation. I asked for a booth and was taken to a regular table. I had to let her know I needed a booth and the special event I was celebrating was not even mentioned. Food: I had the Molcajete which comes in a stone bowl, which should still be boiling hot when it comes to the table and that was not the case. The meat was extremely cold. The plate was somewhat warm extremely disappointed with this location

    Overall a really good experience! It was Valentine’s Day, and it was busy. The service was amazing, our waiter didn’t miss a beat! Food came out quick and was very tasty. It is a loud environment with music playing and display TVs all around, which we had expected. Overall we were really happy with everything, we will definitely be visiting again.

    I had a really nice experience for my friends birthday. The only thing I didn’t agree with was the service fee. We are your guest making you money… why hit us with service fees? That’s how you upset people specially during times like these. Inflation is the problem

    We came at 4:30 on a Sunday for a family birthday celebration dinner. The hip hop music was so loud we couldn’t hear each other over the music! It was so loud that several of the people happened to have ear plugs and they put them in! I know later in the evening this type of loud music might be appropriate but at 4:30 on Sunday? No way!! I was hoping this restaurant would succeed there but I won’t go back!!

    Our dinner there was so fun!! I was celebrating my girlfriend’s bday. Yes it was a bit loud and yes the music video on the screens were a bit racy but it was great fun. I wouldn’t come here with my parents or underage children but I would come with my partner or girlfriends for sure. The molcajete was delicious as was the flight of margaritas. We were dancing in our seats and enjoying the vibrant ambiance.

    A few things I would change is the setup where they had the omelets and chilaquiles station, The chairs where we were sitting were not quite the right fit to get in and out of our chairs. Have the TV station with random programming, not everyone is into one type of viewing selection. The server at my location was friendly and very upbeat vibe. She did an amazing job. As to the servers behind the stations they need to be more welcoming and make you feel like they are ready to serve you make you feel good about being served and make you feel not unwelcome. no cheerfulness and look like they are impatient.

    Food was not up to par. Tasted old and can get better at a mom and pop restaurant. Would never come back again food was tasteless salsa was like water . Our waiter did not ask if we wanted drinks or appetizers waiter was running around everywhere but us and not doing her job right . Customer service needs help badly these young so called adults need to know how to work and quit being so lazy.

    First time visiting a Kalaveras and I was super happy with it. I had been warned about the super loud music these restaurants tend to play but the Covina location did not have the music as loud. We were able to hear each other talk. The food was amazing; I’m super picky about Mexican food and I have been recommending this place to everyone. The waitress was super attentive as well. I wish I remembered her name but she was bringing me things before I even got a chance to ask. Mind reader :)

    I made a reservation so seating was quick. Our orders came out quickly. The staff would clear away quickly as well so the table wasn’t cluttered. The happy hour food we ordered was delicious. We ordered the birriaqueso tacos with a side of rice and beans. The guacamole and chips we ordered was also delicious. The only thing I would change is the adult music videos playing. It was a bit uncomfortable. We were politely asked to wrap up our time because there was another party reservation they needed to accommodate. So that made us feel rushed as one of our party was finishing their drink and bday flan.

    Cool dia de los muertos decor and vibrant colors throughout. Service was a bit slow considering it was a Wednesday afternoon. The waiters were attentive however, seemed disorganized. Lunch specials are plentiful plates that are full of flavor and value for the size. Overall, 4 out of 5 stars. Service was lackluster.

    I came to Kalaveras for a girls night with some friends. Thanks to our reservation we got VIP seating. The drinks were great and so was the food. We got our orders in fairly quickly and food was out just as fast. All the stuff was pleasant and energetic. Even got to see the performances down for their specialty shots and that was a ton of fun. Can’t wait to come back!

    We were seated at a dirty table with a used band-aid on it! Yes that is on the previous guest but just don’t seat people until the table is clean. Had to ask numerous times for napkins and utensils (again, table wasn’t ready for us when we sat so usually those things would’ve already been there) food was pretty good but it was WAY TOO loud. If you like dining while clubbing, you’ll love it here. Numerous TVs broadcasting all the music videos with stripper poles, naked women, and rappers.
