Huge portions and the food was hot. Guacamole was very good and the pitcher of margaritas is the way to go. You'll want to share the deep fried ice cream!

I have been coming to this restaurant every few months for a few years. We went for lunch on Sunday. The waitress seemed distracted and possibly serving too many tables. What I pointed to on the menu and made a few alterations was not what was brought to my table. In fact, the item served was $5 more.( I mentioned... More

Disappointed. Been coming here since it opened. Recent change of menu seems like they are going on the cheap. Enchiladas Suizas was best in town but, now they don't serve it with fresh avocado, sour cream, or with a jalapengo...they also went from 3 down to 2 enchiladas. Their unique and wonderful beef salad is no longer on the menu... More

La Tablita is located in a strip mall in Cathedral City and looks like nothing special from the outside. However, once inside there is a beautiful dining room that is very nicely decorated. We had lunch and the food was very good. I had Chile Verde. I thought that my portion was a bit small but the flavor was outstanding.... More

Always excellent food, the owner is always present and pleasant. When his daughter is working, everything is perfection as she remembers our order down to the drinks. They treat us like family.

This is one of the best little restaurants in the area. Truly a hidden gem. We have been going here for years and have yet to have anything other than great experiences. the tortilla chips are salty, crunchy & delicious and the salsa is not too hot for this gringa! The carne asada is soooo flavorful as are the carnitas,... More

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.
