Beautiful night for outdoor dining at one of our favorite casual spots.
Food and margaritas were great
I went with my best friend and it was all so delicious from the drinks to the app to the meal! Nice location and I loved being able to eat outdoors in October! Great service all around would highly suggest!
The food was not very good for how much it cost and the music was to loud and intense. It felt like I was in a club, not a restaurant and I found it impossible to relax.
I ordered a shrimp rice bowl and I got one full shrimp and two tiny pieces and it was lukewarm at best. Very disappointed!
Everything was excellent as is the norm at Salena’s. The food was fantastic, the service exceptional and a great overall experience. We will be back.
Birthday Dinner. Table ready on our arrival. Service was friendly and quick. Food is fantastic! Highly recommend Salina’s
Great food and great service.
Menu has changed again, prices seem to have increased again (after an increase over the summer - which we were fine with given the pandemic). The waitress seemed stressed or doesn't like her job, not sure what was happening there. Things just didn't seem the same. We frequent the restaurant at least monthly, the first time we've been so disappointed.
We are long time customers. We always enjoy the food. Have never had a bad experience.
The server was great! Food was cheap but amazing! Definitely will return!
Salena’s is my favorite Mexican restaurant. I order the Mexican Flag - 3 different enchiladas with beans and rice. Each enchilada tastes different. Other Mexican restaurants serve 3 styles of enchiladas but they all taste the same. I also love Salena’s margaritas. Always good.
I’ve been there before abs the margaritas were so much better than in the past.
Always good stuff!!! Great food, drinks, and service.
Our reservation was ready when we arrived. We had to change from 5 people to 4 and that was not an issue. Maggie was friendly, courteous and efficient. The food was delicious and we were supplied with as much salsa and chips as we wanted. Only issue I would say is beers were expensive. Come on. $5 a glass. It’s just beer. Highly recommended otherwise.
We’ve been going to Salenas for years, and we will definitely go back even though it was a little disappointing this time. The margaritas were weak and watery. We ordered a carafe as we usually do, and we all thought they were different. The service was good, as it usually is. One order was slightly wrong, and that happens often there. But they fixed it pretty quickly and the food all tasted good.
We usually love the food and margaritas but all of our drinks tasted wrong and the waiter insisted they were right. I have had plenty of margaritas here and this tasted nothing like a margarita. Regardless of who was “right” our waiter was not very genuine about resolving our issue. My order wasn’t correct and the cheese was very brown and not very much sauce (enchilada) and the beans tasted different than they usually do. Patio was beautiful place to sit. Usually love it here but not sure I will be too much in a hurry to return.
I loved everything about the restaurant aside from one thing but it was worked out. food, atmosphere, staff, all wonderful. Here was the small issues. we ordered a stuffed burrito for 12.00. the waiter asked what protein we wanted and we said, Tofu. they charged us 19.00 for the burrito upcharging 6 dollars for the tofu. I had no idea they charged for the protein since the waiter asked me which protein I wanted, I assumed it came with the burrito. The good news, the waiter saw the error in his not sharing the upcharge, immediately took the upcharge off the bill with no problem. we will definitely go back and appreciate the professionalism of the staff.
Service was perfunctory. Chips and dip ok. Holy moly excellent. Should have stopped there. Cadillac margaritas by carafe was nothing special. Probably won’t return. This was our second visit.
The good: amazing in all ways. Our server Ian was fantastic--exceptional at his job. That young, fresh mind...able to remember everything we asked for (bombarded him with) without missing a beat and all while remaining calm, cool and collected. Also, thank you for seating us next to a table that had an adorable baby girl! I didn't even request this, so it was an especially nice surprise. Lastly: FINALLY a margarita that gave me a buzz after just one!!! The Cadillac? Perfecto! Love Salena's and Village Gate. Always a wonderful experience!
The bad: where do you get off feeding me that much amazing food?! I was uncomfortably full and even feel a little guilty for consuming so many calories. I guess I have to go to the gym today after all. Geesh, the nerve of you people!
Food was delicious. Four of us all loved our meals.
We take our nephews (who are now 19 and 21) out for dinner each year for the start of their school year. It started when the oldest was going to K-garden and he is now a college senior.
My son came home with his girlfriend from college.
My daughter's home for a week, and my son wanted her to meet his new girlfriend. And everyone wanted me to pay for dinner. And my son's girlfriend is vegan. And me on a diet.
Salena's was the perfect choice, with a varied vegan menu as well as plenty of delicious choices. Plus there were a la carte items that helped me keep my calorie count down, all at a manageable price. One of my favorite places for Mexican food in Rochester!
Great as always! One of the few places you can make reservations. Added some new menu items - love the new selection of tacos. Shrimp tacos were delish. Beautiful night to sit outdoors and enjoy good cocktails and dinner v
Always love coming here. Best Mexican food I’ve ever had and they make great frozen margaritas. Always my go-to place if I’m craving Mexican food.
Love Salenas! So glad they are open more hours now!
The drunken tacos were excellent!! Service was excellent. Enjoyed the outdoor patio
Food was delicious, we had the rice bowl with chicken and the quesadilla supreme. I’ve dined here before and enjoyed any food I had. My only issue with my experience was the $8 margarita. I make them from scratch, so I have an idea of what it should taste like. Neither of us could taste the tequila in it, which means it was some top shelf stuff (nope, haha) or there was very little in there. I expected to have a solid margarita for $8, and was slightly disappointed. I would give them another try though and will be back someday.
Always tasty…always great service…and always enough for leftovers!
We will definitely be returning for another visit whether it be lunch or dinner, good experience 🇺🇸
Service from Maggie was excellent! Food was delicious and as always, an all around great experience!
I was very disappointed in our server, who barely came around to our table of 8 and got an order incorrect. The food was also disappointing and not as good as I remember it to be. The black beans that came with my tacos were so bland. Bad experience.
It was average at best. We dine out frequently and the atmosphere was boring, food was Luke warm and margarita was served in a water cup 😞
The food was delicious and plentiful, service was friendly and we sat at an outside table. Loved the whole vibe. A great place for a date night or just dinner with friends.
The food is absolutely delicious and the service is great!
Justin’s meeting friends for dinner and to catch up
We thoroughly enjoyed our Salena's experience....particularly our server Maggie. She was delightful, professional at all times but with a fun, light and cordial approach. Thank you for a lovely and fun evening.
It was good with the following exceptions- the fact that you don’t have wings and won’t have them until Fall is a huge disappointment. Other restaurants have them even if there is a shortage, and they just charge more for them. Also the music in the past has been great, but on this night it was rap music and it was annoying.
Brought a table of 10 to celebrate a birthday. With 4 kids 9 and under we were very pleased with the kids menu and create your own cookie dessert!
Our service was timely and friendly anticipating what we might need before we asked.
We are very excited that they are open again for dining.
