I fell in love with their cuisine over five years ago. I love going into this location because the staff always seem to remember me, and present themselves with a smile; no matter what. The food reminds me of my elders and enjoying many of the foods I grew up loving to sample as they prepared meals for us. My... More

this smaller, more casual restaurant related to the other Mari Luna is ok for a cheaper mexican meal. However, the other Mari Luna up the street is so much better, regardless of the price. This one needs to step up its game, freshen the salads ($9) was way overpriced.

We love Mari Luna! It doesn't look like much from the outside but it makes up for it where it counts, the food. First of all, we love that it is BYOB, we bring a pitcher of margaritas and they bring us salt rimmed glasses. The salsa and chips are always a great indication of what is to come, and... More

Atmosphere is that of a typical Mexican "bistro" (don't expect tablecloths and chandeliers), but who cares, you're there for the food. Fresh, great tasting, huge portions, great wait staff. All in all a great value and a wonderful time. Parking lot a little crowded.

This is one of my most favorite restaurants in the world. It is the most authentic Mexican food that I have had outside of Mexico itself. The burritos are incredible, as are the fajitas, quesadillas, and soups. I would also recommend the homemade tamarind juice. I have never been disappointed by the food at this incredible restaurant. Additionally, the staff... More

Mari Luna Mexican Grille's food is very flavorful and not overly spicy. Extensive menu of Mexican food plus fish, beef, and seafood. This is real Mexican, not "tex-mex." The mole has just the right amount of spice; the chicken chili relleno is delicious, and the CRAB quesadillas are awesome. Reasonable priced, friendly service, and large portions. We visit often and... More

This place is a gem. The owners of the Mari Luna restaurants are wonderful and this is the first. Much noisier than the Latin Grill, nowhere near as fancy, but great attention to the food, The service is very good and pleasant. Can get busy. The food is top notch and very well presented. Pricing is reasonable.

My wife and I had lunch there this afternoon based on the Tripadvisor reviews. We thoroughly enjoyed it and will be going back for dinner in the near future.

Tasty food and a great variety at various prices. Friendly service. When busy it can seem crunched together -- tables are pretty close and it can be noisy.
