The appetizers were the best part! We ordered Queso Fundido and Elote (both were flavorful and tasty). We also ordered the La Luna margarita (mango and watermelon) made with Milagro tequila and those were equally as good! The tacos left a bit to be desired. We ordered the carne asada, sweet potato and chicken tinga. Unfortunately, the tacos were pretty bland. They definitely needed some sort of salsa so I asked for salsa verde and it made it ten times better. Very cute ambience and a good vibe!

Dined here last Saturday for my husbands birthday... everything was great! Got seated right away, drinks were amazing and food was soooo good. Mole was on point and we could not put down the Birria tacos! My husband is all about good music while we are out and the playlist at La Luna was perfect! We will definitely be back.

We had a great experience from beginning to end. We went to celebrate a birthday and they sent us a few complimentary things for the occasion. We love their variety of drinks - we came once or twice when they first opened and their drink menu has grown to have more variety. We can’t wait for the downstairs lounge to reopen as it is a great place to have pre or post dinner drinks.

Beautiful restaurant
I ordered the fish tacos and they could use a little lore seasoning.
The Guacamole with pomegranates was delicious.

Service was very slow 20 minutes for our cocktails ,appetizer and entrees came out first .Our waitress never came around and noticed that our drinks never came or to check if we needed anything else . The manager finally noticed and asked the bartender to make our drinks. We ordered another drink before leaving and again they were delayed. We ended up cancelling our drinks and leaving. Also, don’t order and Aperol Spritzer. They don’t know how to make it. They made it with tequila instead of sparkling wine.

Well they don’t have the main plates on Sunday only tacos.....they should let people know on your website or the restaurant website.

A little upset.

I would suggest that when people are dining inside that the DJ beware of it. At one point It was way to loud. I’m all about the music but when your trying to have a conversation with someone the loud music interferes. Thanks!

Food was below average and they said you have 90 mins even though we were drinking $20/glass tequila! and our reservation was at 8:00 they sat us down at 8:15 and closed at 10:00 so the unfriendly speech at the beginning wasn’t even necessary

This was my second time at La Luna, and I loved it so much. The food and drinks are amazing, as is the service. I know the servers have to be crazy busy, but they are super friendly and attentive. Can’t forget to mention that the interior design of the place is beautiful. Definitely a new favorite spot of mine!

The service was great and everyone was very nice. This place is not your regular Mexican restaurant, the food is made different. Out of a 10 we rate the food at a 6. Was not really for us but the steak taco we did eat was okay and drinks were tasteful.
