This is a great restaurant. The food and service are excellent. This is not your typical Mexican restaurant. Try one of the steaks, truly outstanding. The live shows are really great. We love taking out of town guests here to get a bit of the great Mexican culture that is such a big part of LA.

It is typical Los Angeles type and slightly over priced. We saw reviews from many websites and found this one for our breakfast and dinner. We were not disappointed, but it was truly rewarding to eat out there. The delivery time was so quick and almost all cuisines were available on request. The hotel staff was polite and courteous to...

I've grown to love trip advisor - BUT - there is NO WAY this restaurant could be top rated.. It is an old, hokey place with Mariachi singers - you could make believe you're in Acapulco - well, not really, since there's no view and no cliff divers diving off those cliffs (in Acapulco). Nonetheless, if you want hokey and... More

Whoa, number #5?? I don't think so..... Something is wrong with the rating system if this place is #5 in Los angeles, yikes! Loud and noisy, expensive for really mediocre Mexican food, snooty waiters, etc. Would never go back since there are so many less arrogant places with much better food and value. Sorry.

I have no idea what this phenomenon on Trip Advisor of rating restaurants to these top position when they are just average is, but I sincerely hope it ends... This restaurant, while good, was really just average. If you like singing mariachis and overpriced mexican food head right over. Though I will say the staff was very kind, the restaurant... More

Went with family to celebrate my sons 18th bday. We had fun the music was great. Loved the food, especially the starter. The mains were too big to finish off. We would love to go back if we ever we visit LA again.

The food is overpriced and just typical. The Mariachi band is fun though. And if you want a free dessert make sure you call out when they ask if it's your birthday or anniversary. Oh but if you say it's your anniversary they'll want you to beso (kiss) and beso again. Cute.

Maybe this wasn’t the place I enjoyed from the perspective of a ‘peaceful and quiet dinner’ outing, but that’s okay, because at the end of the day I was satisfied. The reason was not only the free chips and guac that were to die for and the finger licking good cheese dip, or the valet parking, or even the well-dressed... More

If you like a vibrant place full of energy and joy, then this is the perfect place! For me, I love such locations and prefer them over other places to dine!
