    Great quality sit down Mexican food with good selection and authentic flavors. Wonderful choice of margarita's and nice south of the boarder beer on tap.

    My meal was lacking and overpriced for the experience . I go out to eat because I want to eat something that tastes better than what I can cook at home, and with La Esquina that’s just not the case. The Fijitas I ordered were a mess in presentation and taste. The Meat was rather dry and overall do not have that much flavor. The vegetables which I actually found to be pretty good overpowered the rest of the meal and left the dish to be rather unbalanced. The service was all right but not exceptional. If you are looking for somewhere to eat at this price point, I would suggest looking elsewhere.

    Not “authentic” Mexican, but pretty good. Chorizo rellenos were very good, the chips and salsa were hot and spicy and the service was very good.

    Always an awesome experience! I’m vegan and get the guacamole every time, soooo yummy! Vegetarian menu impressive and they even have a notebook with a full list of ingredients for each entree! Kind staff, cheerful!

    Very noisy but the decor was stylish. Food was fine. Service was friendly but overwhelmed. Margarita used too much lime and not enough tequila.

    Great food, service and atmosphere. We are locals and have been here several times. The food and service have always been excellent! Our favorite entree is the crab enchiladas. Enjoyable experience!

    This is our third time dining here. The food is AMAZING! Unfortunately each time it seems like the service gets worse! This past Saturday we were seated upon arrival (with a reservation) but it took at least 10 minutes before our server greeted us -- but did not bother to take a drink order -- was told she would be right back with chips. ANOTHER 10 minutes later she shows up with chips and then takes the drink order -- which didn't arrive for another 15 minutes! Total of 35 minutes from the time we were seated! As usual the food was AMAZING and I will still give them another try -- but they really need to upgrade their service. The only other complaint I have is their wine list is very lacking -- especially when you know the restaurant is connected to Ciopinot which has an amazing wine list.

    Delicious food! It’s a small restaurant, so I would recommend a reservation.
