Sketchy. Bad service. Average food. Save your pennies and get a quick Mexican fix at Santana's down the street or even Del taco before hitting the bars. For a real Mexican eat out, go to any number of them in downtown or Rancho. Never, repeat never, use this place as a Saturday night first date place. It will be your... More

A friend and I had lunch there on 11/6/14. The left hand side of the restaurant serves sushi, the right hand Mexican, which was worrisome. Ambience was pleasant enough. My friend ordered one of the lunch specials, chicken enchiladas verdes for $5.95, which he described as excellent. I ordered cheese enchiladas for $8.95. Waitress somehow wrote this down wrong, so...

The food at La Tablita is good, and the service sweet and reasonably efficient, but the depressing atmosphere brings it down to only an average experience for us.

There being a great many Mexican Restaurants in Cathedral City I have to say this is my favorite as the food is always tasty and the service great. Probably known only to locals because of its location it has the best Cadillac Margaritas too. Not very large but a colorful restaurant and service always good.

We had a craving for genuine Mexican food during our day trip to Palm Springs, so after scouring the web for rave reviews of local restaurants near the Palm Springs, we settled on this restaurant. And what a feast awaited us! The complimentary nachos and homemade salsa they served us was excellent. We then ordered their seafood platter, with ceviche... More

Colorful restaurant in a strip mall. Good food, friendly, family run business. Happy to make substitutions for picky customers. Great chips and salsa and healthy portions.

This is a great place. The interior decor is lovely, the food good, the staff nice, but the exterior of the restaurant has no imagination. Just fixing it up a bit would make it so much better, Making sure that all the folks who are put off by that dumpy mall, know that there is quality within. I hope they... More

Previously I had commented on La Tablita Mexican Restaurant in Cathedral City, and had been quite disappointed. So...I waited a number of years before returning, and I did so as friends began telling me that it was really good. Since then my friends and I have gone a number of times, and I must say, what a pleasant surprise from... More
