I had the chile verde enchiladas & the most delicious homemade soup with chicken, green chiles, squares of soft white cheese, wish I could remember what the name of it was. Anyway, all was delicious!

This place has excellent food, great service, and delicious chips & salsa! The ambience is sooo relaxing and cozy. My favorite dish is the panela cheese crepes with cilantro lime cream sauce. Mmmm! Tip: Order anything on the menu that comes with the cilantro lime cream sauce, because it's to die for!!!

I have been going to The Whole Enchilada for more than 20 years and the menu changes, the interior decor is modified, and from time to time the wait staff changes, but the food overall has been excellent. For traditional Mexican food like enchiladas, tamales, and the like this restaurant is nothing special. Go for the seafood dishes, which includes... More

Eclectic decorations, relaxed atmosphere, excellent food. The chili rellenos are the best ever. The salad with fish and the fish tacos can not be beat. Do not let the exterior fool you.....go in and enjoy yourself.

This restaurant was highly recommended by two Moss Landing residents, calling it a sort of "upscale" Mexican food with a gourmet twist. Their call to fame is their fried artichokes. Here are my views: The Outstanding: 1. Great location: located at the intersection of Hwy1 and the road leading to the Moss Landing marina. 2. Pretty exterior facade, and warm/inviting... More

I came across the restaurant in one of the tourist brochures in Monterey, so I did not have high expectations.Furthermore when we arrived we had to wait for 15 minutes although half of the restaurant was empty then. Half an hour later the place got completely full, but we did not have to wait long for our food to be... More

I've eaten here several times over the years and it's always been great. This trip I had the Oaxacan carnitas enchiladas in mole, chock full of very tender and tasty pork and served with large dollops of sour cream and guacamole plus refried beans & rice and the usual appetizer of chips and a very good salsa. The ambience is... More

Our first visit to this restaurant for lunch was good. Server was friendly, knowledgeable, and quick, and food was good. Our second visit did not fare so well. We went for lunch again. Server was unbelievably slow, and food took 20 minutes to arrive. Food tasted just fine. I did not ask to speak with manager but would rather go... More
