First visit this past Sunday morning for brunch. Everything on menu seemed like it would be delicious; however, the Ocotillo Breakfast ($14) was just so-so - and rather bland - especially the hashbrowns that looked like little pieces of toast and tasted like fried mush. Asked for some salsa and was offered some clumpy "green sauce". Also had a house "Gin & Tonic" that was very watery - considering the price. Finally, the atmosphere is lovely, but the music (in bar area) was way too loud. Overall - disappointing given the price.

We were given the last remnants of the coffee. It was lukewarm and we were told that they were brewing more. We waited and waited, but never got more. At one point our waitress brought the remnants of another pot over and let the last bit drip into my fiancée’s cup, which felt like a slap in the face. The waitress explained to us that she left the spout open on the coffee machine when she made it, so it just poured straight out and they needed to brew more. At that point we were done eating and ready to leave. I told her not to worry about it and just leave the coffee off of our check. She proceeded to bring us the check with the coffee on it, and when I questioned her about it, she insisted that we be charged since we had coffee. After a heated back and forth, she said she would ask her manager to take it off, and came back with the corrected check. I don’t understand why the restaurant didn’t have plenty of coffee ready during brunch. Very disappointing experience.

It was our first time to dine at Ocotillo. The burrata salad and halibut ceviche small plates, and the sweet corn ricotta agnolotti with shrimp entree were delicious. The temperature difference of the hot seared halibut with the cold gazpacho and beans threw me off. The dish would have been better with a warm sauce or broth instead of the gazpacho. The linguine dish was disappointing because the linguine was sticking together and the cured olives had a bitter taste. The server was nice enough to comp the linguine dish.
The service was friendly and attentive, and the dinner cocktails were delicious. I would try Ocotillo again.

Consistently delicious. The service wasn't as wonderful as it usually is, but the atmosphere and food were awesome. I always get the flautas (I can't get myself to break away yet). My guests got the brie French toast, couldn't find any brie, but they still enjoyed their meal.

Flavors of the dishes were fantastic, but noise level was really loud. Difficult to talk. Service was good. Halibut, sweet potato, roasted cauliflower and vegan meatballs were all great. Squash blossoms were very good also, but the dish was tiny!

Food and drinks were delicious. Noise level was pretty high. It was hard to hear my friends sitting in front of me. The waitress didn’t pay much attention to our table. It took a while to order our food. Overall I would still recommend Ocotillo.

Excellent small plates, pasta course and entree. REALLY surprised by the generous quantities on the meat dishes, we left the place with more food than we ate, which is pretty amazing for such a high end food experience. That will keep us coming back for sure!

Although I did NOT award five stars for each category, the overall experience at Ocotillo deserves five stars. The food is unique in both presentation and flavor and all of it was very, very tasty. The service on the night we attended was a bit "off" as a food server was not able to make it on time so others had to pick up the slack and they did a great job given the work load handed to them. You won't be disappointed with Ocotillo!

Had Brunch here today with my son. Over all..what a unique little Diamond in the rough spot!
Easy to find. Didn’t seem to have a whole lot of parking area….but I didn’t have any problem getting a spot.
Greeting was friendly when we walked in…and hostess gave me a recommendation of the “Brie Stuffed French Toast”.

Long story short…very pleased with ALL aspects of our meal!!
Killer unique cocktail list and AMAZING uniquely prepared menu items!!
Familiar ingredients done in a delicious and creative way!
A must try for people who love layer of flavor!
Every item we ordered was absolutely delicious!
Definitely another “Go To” added to our favorite Restaurant rotation list!!! 👍🏼❤️

PS. The Brie stuffed French Toast was KILLAH!!! Lol

Solid food, love the menu and really nice friendly staff. The food timing always seems out of sync though. On both occasions, our appetizer and entree orders for the table did not come out at same time. Weird to do that since it would be weird and rude to eat your food before everyone’s food got to the table.
