Mexican food and Sushi Under One Roof

My husband loves Mexican food and I love Sushi so how could we pass this place up. My husband had fish tacos and they looked great. The rice and beans that came with it were outstanding. The fish was grilled and very tasty. I had a Sashimi dinner combo. Soup salad nice selection of sashimi and... read more

We had a great meal at a great price. We had fajitas, enchilada burritos, carne asada platter. Portions were larger than normal. My husband and I shared a fajita. Great chips and salsa and good service.

It's strange to go to a Mexican restaurant and order teriyaki and tempura but I often do that when I want something other than my favorite item, enchilada suizas. Yes, you can get wonderful Mexican dishes or sushi and Japanese entrees. La Tablita's left side of the restaurant is actually called Dragon Sushi although you can sit on either side... More

At one time this was our 'GO' to place for good, inexpensive Mexican food, but the owner has decided to add a Sushi Restaurant as part of his establishment, and it just doesn't work ... he's raised his prices and the food is no longer the quality it once was ... sooooo sad.

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
