Food is decent, prices too high for Mexican food

Let me begin by saying what an incredibly lovely restaurant this is! The decor is nice and colorful and sets a nice ambience. There is also outside seating for when it is not tooooooo hot outside. We ate outside, but quickly wished we had eaten inside because there were ants crawling on the... read more

Good drinks and service. The food was average for mexican cuisine. The salad was good minus the fact of only one slice of avocado. The atmosphere is fantastic, I would definitely dine here again.

There are 3 Las Casuelas restaurants out in the desert...Historic Palm Springs on the strip (worth going to), Rancho Mirage, and La Quinta. The La Quinta destination is worth it for large group parties and relatively easy to get in during peak season. That being said the food is just okay at this location. The Rancho Mirage location is the... More

This was the first time I've been to this location and the staff was so friendly and the place was gorgeous! We went at 11:30am and there was nobody else there so it was quiet, the service fast and everybody was very friendly which made us feel very welcome. I will definitely go back because I want to try other... More

I vacation in Palm Desert every other year. We eat here every time, its usually pretty good Mexican food. But this time was different, we sat out on the patio, service was excellent. But when we received our food 35 minutes after we ordered it, then the flies came out and I felt like we were at a real Mexican... More

Worst dining experience EVER!!! We were seated, no one would wait on us. We finally tracked someone down to take our food order and we waited 45 minutes for our food that never came! We were offered chips and salsa over and over again. We talked with 3 different people - including the manager - and our food was always... More

The outdoor seating is magical for getting the full feel of this restaurant. Food was good and service was attentive to our needs.

We went on a Friday night and the wait wasn't too long, about 20 minutes. They had us sit outside and the lighting was very low. We had to use our phone lights to see what the menu said - I suggest they turn up the lights out there! It would have been nice but they should have asked if... More
