    Great place for awesome Mexican Food. The service is impeccable and the food is amazing. Loved the chimichanga and the stuffed avocado with shrimp ceviche. Highly recommend Nayarit.

    Really good food but there were some things on the online menu which weren’t available. One of these was a mole someone at our table really wanted - kinda a staple. Servers were very nice and prompt but the bar was very slow! Overall a fun evening but could have been better. Will definitely try again.

    We had a reservation at 7pm for 3 people. When we arrived they said that they didn't have any tables available. Not sure the point of making a reservation if they don't reserve a table for you. Not happy

    We made reservations on Open Table for 5:30 only to find the restaurant closed over the holidays. I’m glad they close down to celebrate and give their employees time with families, but coordination through OpenTable needs to be improved.

    If I could give zero stars, I would. We had reservations through Open Table. We showed for our 6:15 reservation. Was told they don't take reservations. Well, yes they do. They just don't honor them. The hostess could care less. The manager looked at their Open Table and saw there were in deed reservations out there for the restaurant. All we got was sorry. Get on the wait list with all the other walk ins. Why would they seat walk ups and not honor reservations. Will NEVER eat here again.

    Kitchen was overwhelmed with the crowd. Our food took over 1 hour to get to our table. When it arrived it was well prepared, hot and very enjoyable. Just too many orders foe the kitchen to manage. The service was outstanding, especially under the over crowded circumstances.

    We have eaten at the north location many times and it is very good. Friendly people, good food. This was our first and last time at the south location. Service was very underwhelming. Drinks and food slow to arrive, servers forgetting things and unwelcoming. Enchiladas were around room temperature and fajitas were grossly over cooked (rubbery shrimp). Disappointing for $100 tab. Maybe it was a bad night, but we’re staying with the north location from now on.

    I love their food. However, there was gravel in my beans. Apparently, they weren’t washed well prior to cooking. So happy to be able to dine in even though the atmosphere is on a stripped down scale. Felt like dining in a mall food court. Possibly the lighting. We will still dine there because the food is worth it, the service is excellent and it’s convenient.
