Mexican / Southwestern
In this adobe hacienda from the Mojave desert, the décor is subdued and soothing. Warm cream color walls, dark wood floors and furniture allow one to focus on the artistic design of the room, with three separate pitched ceilings made from spruce and fir strategically placed with hidden lighting on the walls. When evening falls, the flickering glow of candles adds comfortable warmth to the already pleasant ambiance. The food is Southwestern with, of course, an authentic Mexican flare.

Having a live band playing full volume in a small restaurant is not appropriate. The food was overly salty and not good.

Awesome brunch spot! Must try spot in Queens. Bottomless margaritas - do I need to say more?

Food was fine and it was quite for a Saturday night but it’s the summer and most people are away.

A fan favorite for years now. I’ve been coming here for brunch with my family since 2013. Haven’t been since around 2016/ 2017. Came with my girlfriends today for a birthday brunch. Had a wonderful time. Food was great as always. We dined outside on this beautiful summer day. The staff was friendly, from the hostess, to the waitress, to the server refilling our lemon water throughout. We stayed well past brunch and being that it wasn’t crowded, there was no pressure to leave immediately. The staff was kind, accommodating and even joked with our party as we were there having a wonderful time out with friends. Had there been some music outside this would have been a perfect 5 stars. Of course we’ll be back soon!

My friends and I came to this restaurant on June 30th,2019. The service was great. The food was too ... until we got home. I’ve been to a bunch of brunch spots but this was by far the worst. We all had gotten sick. I don’t think it was from the drinks. The food more. Never going back.

Hostess claimed to not see my reservation. The appetizers came with main course. Main course was warm when it did come out. It wasn’t even a busy time there were two more small tables with other customers. No reason any of the above should have happened

I reserved for a large party on a Saturday for brunch and our service was outstanding. Our drinks were refilled quickly, our food came out all at once and it was all hot. Everyone enjoyed their experience at Mojave. Strongly recommend.

The food was very good. I had the pulled pork benedict. My only negative comment is that the food was served cold. I had to send back my food.

Good place for a large party, however the tables were very small and wobbling. If your outside make sure you get the shade area, half of our table ended up with sunburn. Drinks were great and food was perfect. If I were to do it again, I would have chosen to seat inside. Also, no way to split the check, so many places now use apps to avoid the awkward "who ate what" at the end to see who pays what. Waitress was incredible and hostess was accommodating.

Service was slow despite there only being three tables in the restaurant. Food was bland, lacking salt. Guac was probably the worst I've tasted, no flavor. Online it said the restaurant closes at 2 am but we were getting kicked out by 10:30 and out the door by 11 pm. Won't recommend to be honest.

I love this place! This visit was a little off though. We agreed to sit at the bar for happy hour deals. The service was very slow. (One poor guy was trying to do everything behind the bar. He did his best, but it was very hard to get service, and it was not overcrowded.) The food came quickly once our order had been taken. We ordered a steak medium, and it definitely came out well done instead. Also, the food runner did not bring us silverware, so we had to sit there again, with our food ready in front of us, to flag down the bartender to ask for our utensils. He had to run to the server area to get some. Not his fault, but shouldn't have happened. Overall, not my favorite visit but still a favorite place.

Went for Mother’s Day Brunch and it wasn’t like how it used to be. They have a DJ on Sunday’s now. I think they sat us at the loudest table. We couldn’t hear ourselves talk and the food was just ok. My Mom’s chicken was chewy and rubbery.

We made a reservation for late brunch on Cinco de Mayo. Unfortunately, we still ended up waiting 45 minutes for our table (it's a very busy drinking holiday after all). This wasn't putting us in the best mood since we were concerned about potentially missing out on brunch but the hostess reassured us that we would get our full 1.5 hours. Thankfully, our experience completely turned around for the better thanks to our wonderful waitress, Micah! She was incredibly on top of her game and kept the drinks coming all night, making sure we never had an empty glass! The live DJ was also phenomenal. I would certainly come back here for Sunday brunch.

We go to Mojave quite frequently-at least once every two months. I don’t know what happened there, but there is almost no staff! The bartender was handling the bar AND a few tables at 6pm! We waited a while for someone to seat us then it seemed forever until the busboy took our orders. He did the best he could which was pretty good considering it was probably his first time! And he was very nice! About 7pm another guy came to the table to take our order but we already gave it to the busboy. The guy said it was his first night! Of course we’ll keep going there bc we love everything about it and hopefully they will have straightened out their staffing issues!

Brunch was good. My table had the steak and eggs and south burrito with chicken. Both were good. My wife had the eggs Benedict. She returned because eggs were too hard. They took plate with no issues and gave her new plate with Ely he eggs cooked perfectly. The sangritas were awesome.

This visit was very disappointing, the waiter was extremely rude! The food took extremely long, the DJ never arrived after we were informed that he was on his way. I expected more.

This place had good food and the price was great as we’ll. I liked the live DJ it really made it feel like a party but my waitress wasn’t very nice , idk if she was having a bad day or she was overwhelmed but she wasn’t as pleasant and it took a while for a waiter/waitress to come to my table .

Mojave has a very good unlimited brunch. The food is very good, and the staff is very attentive. The staff always filled up our glasses as soon as they saw them slightly empty.

Best brunch in Astoria! Breakfast burrito was delicious and the bottomless is definitely worth it. Sangrita’s for the win!
