We had a great experience on Cinco de Mayo. We went early and they had a wonderful mariachi singer doing traditional Mexican songs and it was a party atmosphere with decorations including sunglasses with a hanging mustache! We were a party of 8 of us, 5 of us had been there several time and 3 newcomers who loved the food and margaritas. I have now found my new favorite dish but I must say that almost every time I try something new that dish becomes my new favorite. This time I tried the smoked chicken picadillo chili rellenos, a mixture of raisins, prunes, green olives, apricots, almonds, pomegranates in a poblano pepper topped with cheese and a delicious cream sauce. It is on the sweeter side so if you want spicy this may not be for you. So yummy I can't wait to have it again. On the side I got the refried beans and they make my favorite refried beans; very creamy and I had the rice. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered and we finished with their very creamy rich homemade flan. Very enjoyable day with great food and great service. Wish they were still on Open Table.
Thanks so much for the stellar review! We appreciate it!
We celebrated two birthdays and had a wonderful evening and meal!
Wonderful! Happy birthday (s)! Thank you for letting us share in the celebration! Looking forward to seeing you again soon!
This was the first time at this restaurant. The hostess and server (Rosie) both made us feel welcome immediately! Rosie offered her recommendations which were spot on! The food was delicious. We will definitely come back next time we are in the Scottsdale area!
Rosie is the best! Glad you enjoyed yourself! Looking forward to seeing you again soon!
Sat inside, where the ambiance is just like a charming restaurant in Mexico. Food was delicious, the flan was so good!
Thanks so much for the kind words! Hope to see you again soon!
You win done and lose some...unfortunately this was a loss. We went with my family and from the guacamole to the tamale the food was flavorless. The veggies were cold and the beans were not tolerable, just awful. The live music was the best part.
Everything very fresh and tasty. We sat on the patio. Was busy so make a reservation to insure seating.
Thank you for sharing your great experience!
Simply the best in Scottsdale.
Wow! Thank you!
The people were super friendly but the food was very smoky not ours taste. Our table faced a wall so we were looking at a brick wall. Just not our style of Mexican food.
We enjoyed our time at Los Sombreros and everyone liked their food. It was a cute outdoor patio area. Service was lacking, and I don't like to say that about servers, because I was one for years, but it takes away from the experience when it seems like your server is just annoyed with you constantly.
Very, very mediocre service. Had to ask multiple times for our side order and additional salsa. Asked for to-go box for my 2 tacos and they never brought it. Finally got up and left them there.
We have enjoyed dining here every time we're in Scottsdale over the past ten+ years. We always recommended this restaurant without hesitation. This last visit - both for lunch and dinner (not on the same day, but during the same week long stay) made me feel like Los Sombreros is under new ownership. It just doesn't have the same mojo. The food and drinks were just OK. The food used to be inspired, delicious, and fresh. Now, not so much. The margaritas are way too sweet - clearly made for a tourist crowd rather than made for 'the tequila enthusiast' like they used to be made. Disappointing.
Used dark meat in a number of dishes and in the quesadilla. Was my third time here and the first two were much better.
As always, friendly and welcoming people, outstanding service, and excellent cuisine. Save room for dessert!
Family owned, friendly staff. Most dishes very good, particularly the specials.
Good food. Small portions for the soft tacos...but good.
Awesome! We love everything about Los Sombreros!!!
Great place. Been several times.
We made an outside reservation and upon arrival our table was ready. Atmosphere was fantastic and enjoyed both owners stopping by our table and inquiring how everything was. Keep up the good work guys.
Found this place while visiting from California. Cute place with really nice/good service. Food was yummy and not overpriced. Good happy hour specials too. We enjoyed the patio seating with our children.
The food is top shelf, service excellent and great drinks
This was my third time visiting this restaurant. They have expanded their menu. It is a good Mexico meets Arizona mix. They have options for meat eaters, gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan. It was busier than I have ever experienced here, despite being an early evening on a Tuesday. It was definitely good that I made reservations. I suspect this being Spring Break/end Spring training/MLB about to start had a lot of people in town and nice weather had people out and about. It took about an hour to get our food, but we had chips and salsa and a small guacamole appetizer to tide us over. The servers are always friendly and the food and drinks are good. We were seated at a small table and it would have been helpful if they cleared empty dishes out of our way before the very end. We were on top of each other with everything. I could tell the staff was pretty busy.
We sat outside on the patio, and it was particularly nice after dark when the pretty white lights came on.
The menu is much more interesting than your typical Mexican restaurant, with some very creative dishes to choose from, some made with crab, some with goat cheese, and some with mole sauce, just to name a few. Our waiter, Jesus', was professional, helpful, and friendly. We liked all 3 kinds of sangria - the white, the red, and the one made with sparkling wine. We thought the complimentary chips and salsa were very good - one of the salsas has a bit of a smoky flavor. I ordered the chicken enchiladas with mole, and it was very good. My husband ordered the lamb shank and he liked it as well. For desert, we had the Mexican chocolate mousse pie, and I would highly recommend it.
A good experience - good cocktails and very reasonably priced entrees - I just wished they had a bit of barrier between the parking lot and the patio it could be a little more enjoyable with some privacy from the cars
We had a large group (10 of us!) and they were very accommodating. Everyone was impressed with the food and drink quality!
A perfect evening to sit outdoors. The patio is pretty under a beautiful ficus tree. Our server was attentive and friendly. The guacamole is delicious and presented in a great stone bowl. Always have puerco en chipoltle which is the most tender pork in a sauce that is hard to describe - fresh, spicy, smokey - unbelievably flavorful.
Always a favorite place.
Very nice little place with great outdoor seating in the back. We enjoyed our dinner and the waiter was very nice and the good quite good. Ask to sit outside in the back if the weather permits. They have a cool little bar area too if you need to wait. I'd make a reservation.
Always amazing food and service!! Love this locally owned place!
Lovely patio. Family friendly. Owner, Adam, introduced himself and was very personable
Great enchiladas and crevice!
Very cute patio. Margaritas are tasty
To be honest I was a little disappointed. The drinks were just ok. The food was good, but the portions were kind of smallish.
Everyone was really nice though, especially the adorable little hostess. She made the evening much better.
Fun atmosphere with great food and outdoor patio
Absolutely wonderful, as always! Food was terrific, service spot on, and outdoor patio perfect!
Everything was great and I love this place so I was sad to find a hair in my veggies twice. :(
Had a very special meal with friends and it was so good we will come back many times. The Hibiscus enchalata was the best
Really excellent food. Some unique flavors and dishes
Jeff was extremely helpful in trying to seat us indoors on a rainy night but we opted for a covered outdoor hightop in the bar area to reduce the wait time. Really enjoyed the food -- many popular Mexican dishes (no fajitas, just fyi) and quite a few unusual ones for an American-Mexican restaurant. Loved the whole experience, so glad we chanced upon this little gem!
Brought family here from out of town for al fresco dining. Had a lovely meal complete with a guacamole, salsa and chips starter. I thoroughly enjoyed my tacos and our parents loved their dishes! We opted to skip dessert but did partake in some cocktails.
