A fun, hip & approachable restaurant that focuses on the social & communal aspects of dining. Lots of fun interactions & a sharing focused menu.

It’s laid back, friendly, casual and always tons of fun. It is a little bit rowdy, but in a comfortable, easy-going way that doesn’t take itself too seriously. The locals are always happy to share their tables with the out-of-towners.

It’s an adventure full of discoveries, a not-to-be-missed experience. It has this certain mystique, it’s unexpected, it’s for those seeking out the unusual.

Great lunch buffet! everyone could find something they liked to eat. Not good for plant based diet, but we weren't expecting a great vegan selection.

There was ant in the chips. Our food took 38 minutes to arrive, although the taste was outstanding

Reservation at 5, was seated by 5:20. Very understaffed. Had to track staff down for refills, food, utensils, napkins.

For the price you pay, the food wasn’t that great and the overall experience of the restaurant was just okay.

Went for my wife’s birthday. We live in Oregon and travel to Vancouver when we want a great Mexican meal. The ambiance is very nice right there along the Columbia River, especially in the summer. The service has always been top notch and the restaurant is very clean. I recommend it to everyone who doesn’t know of it.

Great food, OUTSTANDING fresh guacamole with nice tasting crispy chips. Very good guitar player with staff and eventually the entire resturant singing along for birthday wishing customers. Not the atmosphere for a quiet evening out, or those hard of hearing with background noise. Fun night!!

Chips and salsa were great! Service was good. Food was good, but not great. Enchilada sauce was thin and kind of bland. Rice was not all that flavorful. They seemed to be skimpy with the Tequila, I could not taste it at all in the Margerita. Makes me wish I had a beer instead.

Very dissatisfied with the food. It lacked its normal appeal. 2 waiters could not bring us napkins, silverware,additional chips and salsa, after being asked 3 times. It wasnt until after the meals were served that we finally got these items. No one asked if anyone in our party wished for another cocktail.
It was not busy at all. We will not be returning to this place anytime soon.

Jorge was incredible. We had 30 people, and he was the main server, with some side help. I heard zero complaints, mostly compliments toward him. No mistakes and very efficient. I didn't know they had the room upstairs available for groups, especially with the short notice that we requested. Many thanks for Jorge and the entire staff.

We went to the lunch buffet and came early. That allowed us to get good parking and immediate seating. The buffet was awesome! So much good food and all for $12.99. Their flan is the best I have ever had. Our server, Alexandra, was terrific. Going back for seconds of flan found an empty tray and Noah, the manager, saw this and jumped in to remedy the situation. He then brought the flan directly to the table. We enjoyed some of the insights he had on the history and future of Who Song & Larry's and look forward to many more visits. I highly recommend them to all for a relaxed business lunch to a birthday dinner to an evening with a loved one.....it works for it all.

We enjoyed our birthday celebration. The food was okay. We ordered enchiladas and taco combination. The taco was pretty good - not much in it, however. The enchiladas were covered in what tasted like the canned enchilada sauce found in markets and not much cheese. The rice was very good. The beans were bland. The tiny scoop of corn "bread" was great. The Coca Cola had the right amount of carbonation.

Our birthday celebration was missed by the hostess and not until I made a note on the check did the staff do their thing - it was rushed and obvious - but it's nice they do it and we enjoyed everyone else who had a celebration.

It was a great place to take a toddler. Lots of activity and things to watch - and didn't have to worry about offending anyone. He's well behaved but you never know.

Overall - I wouldn't rush back but I wouldn't stay away either. It's a drive for us so perhaps if we were regulars and saw more of a variety of the food and such we'd give a much higher rating.

Don't stay away - give it a try!

Went to view the Christmas Ships,made our reservation well in advance requesting window seating. We sat upstairs by a very small window, thankful the table behind us left and we were able to move over to the large windows. Decent service in a very busy evening, love the Mexican Caesar Salad!

We mentioned a birthday person twice and waited didn't follow up. had to ask specifically for the dessert and there was no offer to sing etc. Made a reservation and asked for a window and then we were told no windows and given both by kitchen door. Really not impressed by the service of hostess/ waiter but food was served quickly and fine. Just no value added.
