    We were given water upon seating and after 15 mins asked for a server. 10 more minutes without anyone coming to our table so we left. We saw no servers on the patio the entire 25 mins Horrible service

    Service lacked. Had a reservation, got seated and waited for 20 minutes for wait staff - which never came even after asking. We moved to the bar where the staff was unfriendly, food was warm-ish at best. In the past, it was a great place, hoping this is just an off day, but we won't be back regardless

    The veggie dishes were outstanding. Our main pasta entrees were very good but needed more pecorino. I would have liked more mushrooms in the campanelle pasta entree.

    Ugh. We had looked forward to a tasty brunch on the patio. But -- -- The patio faces an unattractive, busy street, -- We had to ask the host if a server was available, after 20+ minutes with no contact by a server. The server apologized, noting that they're losing personnel. -- The food was not very hot and not good. This was just a bad experience all the way around.

    We have been to Ocotillo before for dinner and have always enjoyed it, but this time we arranged a family Sunday brunch when our adult children were visiting from out of town. It was a sunny day in January, so we sat outside, under a heater, and had a delightful meal with excellent service. We all tried something different, and everyone was pleased with the quality (and tastiness!) of their food. Pricing was reasonable too. Highly recommended.

    The brunch menu is pretty good. I had the breakfast chimichanga which was nice but would be better modified with some bacon or sausage. The ala carte items looked good . We sat next to some Trumpers from Salt Lake City, they were loud and obnoxious, I will be back for lunch because their regular menu is better.

    Very disappointed and I dislike leaving a review this bad but there was nothing redeeming about the food or service. They were out of 2 of the whiskeys (Sazarac and Angels Envy) listed on their menu, roasted beets w/herb ricotta, underwhelming. Cocoa tagliatelli w/pheasant ragu pretty awful. Needed a map to find the itty bitty pieces of pheasant and the dish flavors were completely overpowered by the cognac. My friend's meal was just as bad and the dessert was terrible too. Service was non existent after the entrée was served. The only redeeming factor is the ambience.

    The food and drinks were amazing. We got the smoked salmon, pork chop, and shrimp ravioli, and apple cake. The entrees were on the smaller side, but with an appetizer and dessert it was perfect. The ambiance was great. Looked like the back patio was a little more casual and the north patio and inside more formal. Wonderful service.

    Went in for lunch but it was a brunch menu which was fine. Our first time visiting. The coconut water was delicious and so fresh. Interesting menu and some very healthy options. Reasonable portions. Service was a little slow. They charge a credit card fee which was a surprise.

    We had a fine time dining here last night. Our food & drinks came promptly, the waitstaff was attentive & helpful, and everything tasted wonderful. I will say, our waitress was a bit flustered by us ordering several of the “vegetables” and “smalls” (essentially all appetizers) for the table as our meal. We weren’t hungry enough to each order entrees, so we agreed to a table of apps. She was a little condescending when my MIL asked if she could have the same liquor that was in her boyfriend’s drink, in a martini. The waitress responded, “Of course you can have the same drink? Why not?” After explaining several times that she didn’t want the drink, just the liquor, the waitress finally understood and responded, “Sure, you can have whatever liquor you want in a martini?” I don’t think my MIL’s question was that out of the ordinary… we weren’t sure what liquor was even in his drink. With that said, I’m very appreciative that our waitress was honest about the dessert options: she recommended the flourless chocolate cake (which our party agreed—is not normally our favorite) over the gingerbread dessert and we were so glad she did. Perfect ending to our meal. Overall, we had a great time here.

    Always loved dining here, this particular visit though, we were seated and it took near 25 minutes to have be greeted by our server or even have water brought by. I needed to ask a randoms person if they could find our server so we could order, and low and behold she said she was our server and would be right by. Essentially everything took extremely long, ordering, food, reorder on cocktail came out after dinner was finished. Also wife had a ribeye for dinner, delicious. Only problem is they didn’t bring her a steak knife so we had to ask for one. The knife took its time finding its way to us and she made do with the regular table knife and battled the steak till it was done. The knife did make it with our second round of cocktails after dinner was done. Not sure what was going on here this evening, pretty sure we won’t be back for a while.
