Delicious Food, Aggressive Service, Very Noisy

Enjoyed a family dinner .. would have been better, but the service seemed really designed to turn over the table as soon as possible, and the noise level was really inappropriately loud. We were there early in the dinner service, and despite the few patrons n the restaurant, we had to speak with... read more

I made a reservation at 4:30 and it wasn't ready until 4:45. Then we were sat next to another occupied table. The restaurant was basically empty. Extremely overpriced. Never again.

Our check came out wrong and when we asked the waitress to correct it she stated she had to check with the manager. This would have been fine if the manager wasn't a total JERK. After arguing with him for five minutes he proceeded to tell us that this was McLean and his rich clients didn't care about an upcharge... More

Food very flavorful. We got the grilled shrimp fajita, guacamole - prepared right at your table, and grilled chicken Cobb salad.

I visited this restaurant for the first time. The atmosphere was nice and the service was wonderful. The food was pretty good....I honestly couldn't find anything to complain about. The chips and salsa were on point....very flavorful. I ordered the chicken enchiladas, which came with beans and rice. The guacamole was pretty good also. Definitely worth a try for anyone... More

We stopped in for an early lunch on Easter Sunday. We were seated quickly and our server was kind. I went with mexican waffles. Different consistency (it seemed to me) than typical waffles. My boyfriend went with carnitas tacos for a safe bet. Both were just okay. We would probably try it again with different food choices. Loved the chips... More

Dodged horrible rush hour traffic by hitting the restaurant end of Tysons Corner for dinner. First visit to la Sandia. Checked the posted menu then headed to the host station. Almost turned away because of the bar noise. Seated at the back in a much quieter location. Our waiter gave us the happy hour bottomless guacamole usually only available at... More

The food was great, and the service was great. The salsa is homemade and you can taste it It is worth the visit alone. The food was very good, and the staff easily managed dietary needs that were different. I will go back when in town.

Chose this place more for the location than anything else. It is conveniently located in the Tyson's mall and I was meeting friends/family there since we were all coming from several directions. The food was good. I was disappointed that I was one day early for a mole promotion there were starting the next day. The waiter saw my disappointment... More
