We went to Ortega 120 with a party of 10. That put us at a long table with benches. The table was sort of rustic, with cracks that held crumbs from who knows how many other customers. The food was OK. The service was lackluster . . . delivering incorrect dishes and disappearing when needed. I would not say don't... More

We went to Ortega 120 because it was right near our hotel and we had read some good reviews. We were not disappointed. The food (including the delicious, zingy salsa and chips) and the margaritas were great. There was a very talented group of musicians who performed in the restaurant while we were there. Great place.

Had originally planned to go to another mexican restaurant down the street but was told by a local to try Ortega 120 . This place made me think I was really in Mexico by the decor . With 120 different tequilas to choose from the margaritas were superb and the food was incredible. Best homemade chip and salsa to boot... More

I love Ortega 120! I find myself here on a weekly basis! They have all night happy hour on Monday night and excellent margaritas. Another great menu item we have to always get the street corn! They even have 120 excellent tequilas hence the name. My husband and I had our engagement party here 2 years ago so it's good... More

This restaurant oozes atmosphere from the moment you walk through the door. Although it is quite dark inside once your eyes adjust the decor is fabulous. Chose this restaurant based on trip advisor reviews and the fact that it was only a few steps from the Best Western where we were staying. The reviews are spot on, probably some of... More

The food was amazing, the margaritas were the best we had ever had, and the service was good. I wanted to go back before we left Cali, but my wife wouldn't let me.

We picked this restaurant based solely on Trip Advisor reviews and are glad we did. We ate there last night, and it was terrific. We had a reservation at 8:00 that was promptly honored, and we had a nice table near the back of the main dining room. The service was really excellent, and the food was really quite good.... More

We must have gone on a night when the chefs were on vacation. Food was actually sub par. I ordered the red snapper as did my friend. We both found it lacking. The fish arrived with a sweet potato garnish that was tough and chewy; the flesh of the fish had the consistency of fish that had been frozen and... More

Staying at the Best Western next door and just arriving from the East coast, Ortega 120 is about 100 meters away. Worth the walk. It's a lot like a neighborhood restaurant, lots of nice, happy, fun conversations going on. They have a great mole sauce, which we got on the advice of the waitperson. Guacamole - first class. We asked... More

My wife & I ate here recently for dinner based off the online reviews. Sure glad we went! Fun ambience; colorfully decorated. The roasted brussel sprouts were outstanding. Just delicious. She enjoyed the 5 types of tacos & I love my skirt steak with shrimp. Just yummy & unique flavors all around. We'll return for sure. Great service too- very... More
