    Fantastic service- perfect level of attention. Food was very good as well. The one thing we didn’t enjoy was the noise level. There was a DJ playing loud thumping music which is fine if it’s later in the evening but this was before 7pm. Maybe they should consider a later start for that sort of activity.

    We sat at the bar and had a great time! Bartenders and team were very friendly and provided good service. The craft cocktails were delicious - the paloma with the edible flower were my friends’ fav but I enjoyed the house margaritas. The food was delicious for all of us - I loved the chicken enchiladas with mole sauce - super good! There were a variety of mid-priced dishes so hou don’t have to order the pricier meals to have an excellent meal. Will be back!

    Very overpriced for the quality of the food. I am fairly certain our tacos were not cooked fresh to order. Waitresses was almost impossible to hear with the loud music and her voice merely a whisper. She was also on top of our table. We were chatting/enjoying apps and she came up probably 3 times to get us to order or mains. Felt we were being rushed out of the restaurant even though no one was there. I likely will not return.

    Overall I would rate my experience at La Capital MX (LCM) as a 3/5. I was initially excited, but left feeling unimpressed. The decor of LCM is current/fresh. Walking in you see large circular booths in the middle, a decent outside dining location, and a large bar in the back. The ambiance is augmented with popular music being played, albeit it was a little loud. We were greeted with chips, two types of salsa and queso. The chips were lightly salted and the salsas were savory additions. The queso was hot and well balanced. It seemed to be a house favorite as our waitress told us we could order a larger side of the queso if we wanted. We perused the menu and this is where we were taken aback. Margaritas are $16(!), which I think is rich given that it’s a margarita and is rather small. Regardless, my girlfriend ordered one. She noted that it tasted fresh and the alcohol was well mixed into the drink, but wasn’t worth $16. I ordered a cerveza, but was disappointed that my waitress didn’t poor the whole beer into my glass. She left a couple sips in the beer bottle and then walked away. I was confused on why she didn’t poor the whole beer in the glass. This was done twice! The main entrees are ~$25-$50 which I think is a little high for a Mexican restaurant. Tacos are reasonably priced at $5-$8. We ordered the shishito peppers as an appetizer. They were well seasoned and came with a savory white sauce that supplemented the nice crunch of each pepper. We ordered a handful of tacos, including a variety of the steak offerings, pork and vegetable tacos. The tacos were a decent size and flavorful. The only complaint here was that the tortillas kept breaking and there was no chicken taco option. We ended the night with Churros which were served with a chocolate sauce and icing. Lastly, our waitress didn’t seem like she enjoyed serving us, which dampened the experience. Overall, I think it’s worth trying LCM, but Superica still reigns supreme.

    Experience started with valet, as he helped to guide me to parking and immediately valeted my vehicle due to minimum spaces. As soon as I was greeted in the restaurant the hostess were pleasant and delightful. Complimentaty chips and dip were given immediately as I sat, which was a surprise - like a true Mexican restaurant experience. Egdar was my host and was very engaging, polite and attentive. We shut the place down and the were so very kind. Definitely an upscale mexican restaurant experience and will definitely be back for a larger girls night!!!

    Unfortunately they were dealing with staffing issues the night we dined. They mixed up the drink orders and I ordered three tacos and one of them was incorrect. I didn’t even bother saying anything because it would have taken too long. We waited too long for our food and had no chips to eat our queso with, along with no napkins or silverware. I want to give them the benefit of the doubt since they just opened, but improvement is needed. With all of that being said. The taste of the food was great.

    Unfortunately they were struggling with understaffing and only had 2 serves. Food came quick once ordered but drinks and water took a long time. The food was decent but overpriced. Very small steak fajitas for $35 and margaritas at $19. Would love to come back and give it another try, but quality of everything has to improve quite significantly.
