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.

Restaurant was very understaffed. The one waiter was doing the best he could, covering almost 10 tables. Food was fine, not terrible but portions were large. Dessert was not fresh and had to be sent back. We waited a very long time between courses due to the kitchen being backed up.

Food was amazing. Moving to a different state and had a group dinner gathering here. The food was amazing. Drinks were strong and very good according to my friends. The ambiance was amazing as well. It feels like you’re in a hut in the middle of the desert. Decor was very unique and cool. It felt cozy and was a great place for a group hangout. Loved that it was close to the train and easy to find parking. Highly recommend!

Was promised a table closer to band, my other reserved table was given away. We ended up waiting for close to an hour for these other people to leave. We left first. Reservation was handled very unprofessionally

It was a party of 9 celebrating my little brother's birthday. Service was awesome! Our waiter was nice enough to take a picture of our party... he went out of his way to get a good angle. Food was amazing and music was really good. My mom and aunts really enjoyed the old school salsa songs.

The food and drinks were excellent. The only problem I had was the service. It took 20mins for someone to come get our order and if my friends or I wanted drinks, it took forever to find our waiter to order.

For context, 3 of us went for dinner on a Monday night that seemed uncharacteristically busy. It was probably 15 minutes before we were able to ask our server for waters, another 15 for him to bring out chips (last time we went they were brought out immediately after being seated), and about an hour before we got our food. While the food was actually great, it was unfortunately overshadowed by the poor service. However, would still return, given we've had better experiences at Mojave in the past.

Great brunch spot with bottomless option for $34.95 or $16.95 for an alcoholic drink, coffee or tea and an entree. I had the french vanilla bean french toast. It was nice and soft; melted in your mouth. Cochinits pibil benedict was amazing. Nice variety of choices. Make sure to get there early and if possible make a reservation

Mojave is always a good choice. They make the best margaritas. My skirt steak fajitas were a bit chewy or else they woulda got 5 stars.

I came here for brunch for my birthday on 7/30/17. I chose Mojave because I had been to brunch here before and loved it. Needless to say, I loved it again. Both times I came with a group of around 8 people. They were very accommodating, and the atmosphere is great. The food is DELICIOUS and the sangrita is so good!
Can't beat these brunch prices either!

The restaurant was very clean and candle lit ... it was busy as it was a Thursday night and the manager understaffed by only having one waitress, Lola handle the entire restaurant. There was enough servers and bus staff but only one waitress. Lola took our order and was as attentive as if we were her only table. The food was delicious and not rushed which is what we enjoyed most. Drinks were a tad expensive a frozen flavored margarita will run you $11. Overall it was very good food and service their prices could come down a bit.

Party goers, anything more than 15+ guest be prepared to wait for service. Also, keep in mind food and drink may not arrive on time or as requested. But the staff will work with you to correct and flaws.

Do NOT pay for the bottomless brunch! $35 includes one brunch entree and unlimited Bloody Mary, mimosa, sangria, etc. Sounded like a good deal, until we realized all the drinks were HORRIBLE (we had to send back 2 different drinks before settling on a mimosa because that's the only one that is impossible to screw up). The entrees were decent, but portions were the size of appetizers/small plates (the burrito comes in a tortilla that could probably be used for a taco lol). Not going back. Staff was nice though!

The food was OK but I wouldn't go back because the service was horrible. Not to bury the lede, but to make everything worse with the service being poor we were charged for two drinks we never ordered. It was corrected, but annoying. The restaurant was less than half empty on a Saturday night at 830pm and it took a while before anyone came over to us after we first sat down. Waitress/waitresses were not friendly, didn’t ask once how the food was. Almost felt like we were being rushed the whole time. As long as the food/drinks are good and a fair price I don’t mind the service not being 100% but this was pretty bad.
