Nice atmosphere and the food and drinks were good. Drinks maybe a little pricier than some places, but they were good. Only negative is that the music was turned up extra loud each time they did a birthday celebration. We were right under a speaker and it was quite loud!

I made an online reservation and 15 minutes before my reservation I received a phone call from the restaurant stating that I needed to arrive there exactly at my reservation time or else my table would be given away. The host was rude about the situation. I however was on time for my reservation and was told to wait because they needed to get my table “ready”. Even though the email confirmation clearly stated that there would be a 10 minute grace period for me to arrive. I didn’t appreciate her snarkiness. The food was great but our server took a long time to come and check on us. I think they only came and checked on us twice.

I’ve gone there several times and this was one day I was very disappointed with the hostess. I made my a reservations and told her I wanted a seat in the bar area by the window and there were 2 seatings opened and told me they were booked but yet I made my booking at 9a. She has no compassion and rudely told me they were overbooked! Well, this is my error & I told her that it wasn’t my neither. Thus, I have several family and friends and will tell them to speak to a manager next time.
Because, next time I be will!

Riviera Maya Taco & Tequila Bar was a fun and lively experience. We decided to have dinner here while visiting my son at the nearby Purdue University Northwest. The restaurant is very colorful and the background music gives you that Mexico vibe. Loved the frozen guava margarita served in the traditional blue rimmed hand blown glass. The warm and crispy chips with salsa was tasty. Guacamole was too. Fajitas and carnitas were delicious along with the rice and beans. Server was polite and friendly and efficient. We enjoyed ourselves very much.

Upon arrival this place was packed.. Service was horrible. I ordered a margarita and didnt like it because of the salt. Our server didn't come back to our table to check if the drinks were ok. After about 25 I got up myself and went to the bar to tell them about it. I was brought out another drink after about 10 more minutes.. it initially took 13 minutes to get the drink after we ordered it 🙄. The service was bad food was ok. They messed up our check at the end of dinner 3 times 🤦🏽‍♀️

We sat for about 25 minutes without meeting our waitress. We then asked for a waitress and they sent someone over, she took our drink order, while waiting for our drinks another waitress came over and took our food order. The service was pretty good but it was irritating but once we asked the service was better

Waitress was really great and attentive. The food and drinks were amazing. Wouldn’t really recommend bringing a baby due to music getting a little too loud at times but overall it was a wonderful experience and will be returning back.

Booked a reservation and specified that we wanted a high top but when we arrived only a booth was available. Then my husband could barely see the game he was trying to watch. So when i specified wanting a high top i would expect that’s what we would get.

My reservation was for 9:00p.m. They didn’t seat us until 10:15p.m. Then tells us that the kitchen closes at 10. They were only serving tacos. So I didn’t have a good experience. I sat outside for a whole hour waiting for a table. That was not acceptable.

It was great. We were celebrating a milestone birthday. The server was very attentive. I loved the birthday song and party hats other tables were getting. When I asked if they served flan, my table kept saying they were not sure if they wanted it. So, I told the server that maybe we would order flan later. Well, the server didn’t wait until “later” came. She surprised us with a little, individual flan “on her”! It had a little firework candle and everything! It was really special! Thanks for making my birthday happy!
