Very, very slow service! It was about 15 minutes before anyone came to our table for our drink orders and then our food took about 45 minutes to arrive. I received my meal about 10 minutes before my husband did, so by then my meal was cold.

Have been to TR many times and always look foreword to the brunch. Entrees came 15 minutes apart. We waited for desert 25 minutes and finally gave up. We will think long and hart before or if we return

We arrived on time for our reservation and still had a 20 min. wait to be seated. It was yet another little while before we were acknowledged by our server for the evening. This was not outstanding, nor would I recommend this eatery due to the service.

Tortilla Republic is a must do for us on each of our trips to Kauai. We love it both upstairs & down. My husband had chicken fajitas and I had a chicken quesadilla . We both enjoyed our food immensely and I took half of mine home. Service was excellent and friendly. I would describe the menu as “nouveau Mexican “ — dishes like our more traditional Mexican restaurants back home but definitely with a twist. A nice addition this time was a complimentary basket of chips & salsa.

We visit Tortilla Republic several times every year we visit Kauai. The food, service, and background music and ambiance are very enjoyable upstairs or downstairs.
We especially love the ensalada sambrosa and enchilada carne dishes.

We really enjoyed our dinner tonight after eating upstairs several days ago. Dante served us again and definitely elevated the experience. For drinks we had the Perfect and the Local, and enjoyed both. For the meal I had the hamburger, loaded with the fixings and wasn't disappointed (even considering we were eating Mexican). My wife had the pescado burrito and enjoyed it.

Ate here twice during our vacation. Tacos and burritos were great and so were the house margaritas.

One of our favorite spots to dine on Kauai. For a vegetarian, the well-prepared and very tasty options at TR is refreshing and greatly appreciated. On line reservation experience was quick.

Great food & drinks. The patio seating downstairs while nice, doesn't have much of a view other than of a few other restaurants & shops, but to be expected given the location inside a mall.

Four of us went. The chips & salsa were very good. The chicken quesadilla was very greasy. The fajitas were good, not great. The tacos also good, not great. Lastly the gaucamole was very good. Excellent service. My daughter ordered crispy taco, they quickly changed it to crunchy.
