    The service was good and my server was on the ball with making sure to check in and update us on last call and all that information as it was my first time coming to La Carnita. The drinks were decent, not too bad but the food I found the tacos bland-ish. The sauce was great but the meat isn't seasoned and it just seems like a missed opportunity. I have definitely had better tacos elsewhere. They weren't bad but not worth the hype ive been seeing going around. We tried the ribs I believe and it was a like an Asian/Mexican collab on flavour. Those were again not seasoned but the sauce they placed on top of it kind of masked the fact that the beef wasn't seasoned so it was bearable. The music was also SOOO loud my friend couldn't hear me at all, it was like we had to yell at each other. im unsure if it was a one off night because there was a party downstairs but it was annoying that the party was controlling the music volume and type of music of guests upstairs. It was very annoying and hard to talk at all after some time they raised it. Also slight nuisance, where we were sitting was in the middle of the walkway and everyone kept bumping into my friend which interrupted dinner and just affected our overall experience making every thing else much more annoying.

    Very loud. Can’t hear our conversation. We were served apps before drinks. While still having apps all of our mains came. It was a weird pace and it was so noisy.

    Food was a bit spicy and the service was rushed. Mains came before apps. The server was friendly and the food tasted good other than being too spicy.

    A fun place with a hip vibe for a Saturday night. Food tastes great, a modern twist on Mexican. Nice selection of drinks as well. I would recommend La Carnita.

    The food was awful. I went there thinking I would get an authentic Mexican experience. The tacos were horrible. The shrimp was horrible. The cheese sauce thing they had the shrimp in was horrible. They saw that I was not pleased with the food and didn’t offer to compensate me for anything. I was not satisfied and left hungry and with an upset stomach. This was the worst dining experience I’ve ever had but I’m not sure if it’s just the location I chose… 1/10. Best part of the meal was the water.
