Congratulations Cozymel's... I used to enjoy dinning here. You have now joined the ranks of the "Tourist Sell Out Restaurants of America" that have de-flavored all your food, pumped up your prices and decreased service. Good Bye for ever.

The food was great. Large portions, so go hungry! The service was average, but certainly not bad. The atmosphere was good. Try the fajitas!

THey sold the private room to us for a lunch presentation for 50...thankfully only half showed up as there was no way to get 50 comfortably in that room to look at a screen for a presentation. Better for 30 folks. The food was delicious and service was terrific at a reasonable price. We will be back....just not with 50!

This is essentially in the same parking lot as the Westfield UTC mall. Nice to have a quick meal and then shop subsequently. We thought that the chips and salsa were great. They would bring it out as quickly as you can eat it. The tableside guacamole was also wonderful. Service was quick and options are numerous. The margaritas come... More

Went there for dinner after a movie. When the chips and salsa came I knew that it was not going to be very good. The chips were real thin like from a bag. The food did not have much taste and small portions.

We have driven by this establishment for years, and finally one day we decided to drop in for lunch. We found the entrees and appetizers to be some of the best Mexican Food. It's absolutely authentic, however, management agrees it's not as spicy as food would be served in Mexico, that's o.k., let the spice be determined by the customer.... More

I think I summed it up in the title... we had a private party for forty there and the staff was great, the food was fine - buffet style on the back patio - drink service was quick - private room was very nice. Main downsides would be parking isn't great as that mall fills up quick with movies and... More

We came here on a Saturday night, fairly late - 8ish - for dinner. Had originally planned to head into La Jolla Village to eat at one of the cool little taquerias downtown, but couldn't motivate for the drive after a day of traffic.Wandered around UTC and settled on Cozymel's. We had never been to a Cozymel's before and were... More
