If you are making your restaurant decisions by the pictures, be careful. The weekend are brunch menus except dinner. As such you may be disappointed as was I. This could have been made up for in great service but unfortunately it was just okay.

I’ll probably be back based upon the style of the place but it will be for dinner.

Fingers crossed!

Haven’t been there for about a year because of COVID. Had a wonderful artichoke and wild mushroom soup. Also NW soft shell crabs with asparagus. A true spring treat!

Food was great but service was very slow. Do not know if this was an ongoing condition or unique to the virus effect.

This was my first visit to Ocotillo. My group loved the huge tree lined courtyard and tons of outdoor seating. It was an oasis in the middle of the desert! We felt the food was decent, not phenomenal, but not bad by any stretch. It was also a little pricey for what you received. Happy hour in the courtyard might be the way to go!

The eggplant meatballs were surprisingly our favorite part. Other than the mimosas, lol! The breakfast chimichanga and flautas tasted like they were toooo deep fried. Like too crunchy, fried for too long, in old oil. I also felt like the flautas could use some avocado or guacamole!

Comfortable patio seating on a slightly chilly but nice day. Our server was friendly. We placed our orders. It seems like it took a while for food to arrive. No worries, we were conversing. I know, I know... hungry people are not the most patient. Overall, the we enjoyed our meals and service. If you’re considering a visit to Ocotillo, just go.
The fresh ricotta and strawberries are tasty and the pancakes are literally a pan-cake. Loads of patio seating and decent parking for the location.

Make the reservation and go already.

Love the food here. They have a great outdoor patio that made this date possible during COVID. There are interesting dishes from small plates, to vegetable dishes and mains. Also loved the house cat, Mittens that roamed around the patio.

In the reviews it says “Michelin star” level. Not even near to being a candidate. Food is ok but a bit salty and the rib eye was a bit dry and overcooked. An ok meal. A bit pricey and long wait time.

Very happy with our experience. Dined her on a Saturday evening with wife and son on the outside patio. Had the ahi and fallafel appetizers. Both were very good. I had beef ribs, son had the ribeye, and wife had the pappardelle. The portions were very big and the preparation was excellent. Everything, including the service, was excellent. The server was able to explain each dish and checked on us often. Dessert s are hard and what we ordered was average. But we will be back.

My first time at this restaurant. A coworker suggested it for date night. The atmosphere was perfect and the food delicious. I ordered the beef ribs and they fell off the bone. I will definitely come back to the restaurant.

Ocotillo is a gem, the chef is so talented his menu is fresh and so delicious! The fire roasted sweet potatoes and fluffy grits had me at hello! If you haven’t made Ocotillo a regular on a Foodie yet totally approachable restaurant- YOU SHOULD!

By the way the cocktails are awesome even at Happy Hour!

We loved ocotillo! Our waiter was amazing! She was so so kind. The food was really good! I got the pasta but my boyfriend got the ribs and I would definitely recommend that dish! Summer time fine was the cocktail I got and it’s a 10/10. We sat outside and it was so nice and cozy! They even turned on the heater for us and it was perfect!
