Honestly, the place looks great as far as decor but their food is not Mexican or no where near it. It looks like Mexican Food in someways but doesn't taste like anything. I'm a Gourmet Cook have all my Granma's Recipes and I'm confident I'll beat their Chefs/Cooks in a Mexican Food cooking match hands down! Tortilla Soup tastes like... More

We were seated immediately on a recent visit and were immediately given chips and salsa. Our food, large portions, arrived promptly and was very tasty. The margaritas were delicious. Our server was attentive and efficient. Our family in Woodland eats here regularly and are never disappointed!

I've only eaten at Maria's Cantina once and I will never go back. The service was poor, the food was lukewarm to cool and I didn't care for the spices used in their food.

Stopped in last on a Sunday. Not very busy. Asked to be seated outside and had our choice of tables. Chips and salsa showed up immediately. Drink orders were taken within 2 minutes. The Casa Margaritas are great. They offer many varieties but I prefer mine on the rocks with salt. Their salsa is a medium hot, tomato version that... More

Maria's Cantina is a very charming restaurant. It is beautifully decorated in a rustic Mexican style with a few modern touches. The tile work covering the inside of the restrooms is a work of art. It was not only shockingly colorful, but super clean. For dinner, we ordered street tacos with black beans and rice, and also chicken enchiladas. Both... More

We were in Woodland, headed to the airport and stopped for dinner. The food was great - authentic food in a cozy atmosphere, our service excellent (Heather did a great job), and we would make a point of coming here again. My margarita was great with plenty of alcohol. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a great local Mexican restaurant!

A last minute decision to stay the night in Woodland, our group was craving Mexican. I asked the hotel for a recommendation and this was their choice. The restaurant looks like you are going to someone's home. I don't know if it had been a home before or not, but I took a picture and sent it to a friend... More

We just moved out of Woodland and we had our last meal out here. Good menu, nice bar. Nice outside seating with misters for those hot days.
