We stopped in this restaurant while shopping nearby. The food was fine and the service adequate but not otherwise a place we'd strongly recommend.

Started with the free salsa and chips. Nice and crispy chips with a slight bit of heat in the salsa. Chicken tacos are okay while the chicken verde is great. Your soda refills cost $.75 each and you should remember to get your parking validated just in case the arm is working in the exit for the parking lot. Adriana... More

Food was bland. Service was unorganized (never had a waiter...just whoever walked by would ask if we needed anything else). Overpriced for what you get.

My husband and I ordered taco salads and water to drink. His was with ground beef, mine with shredded beef. The shredded lettuce was watery and soggy, the meat was unflavored, I literally had 3 tiny shreds of cheese (my husband had none), and my meat was attached to big pieces of fat. Terrible, and a waste of $30. Service... More

The seating is mostly on a 2nd story patio, which is nice, but was pretty hot, actually. Nice selection of margaritas and Mexican beers, but the food is not authentic Mexican food. Enchiladas and rice were both watery. Burrito just had meat and watery rice in it, nothing else at all. Kids "burrito" was literally some refried beans wrapped in... More

The menu looks authentic Mexican - there was nothing authentic (or tasty) about anything on my plate... most of which I left

I have eaten at Mariachi's a number of times over the years, so it's high time for a review. The restaurant is located upstairs in the shops and restaurant complex across from the Marriott Resort on Rice Street. The resturant is very clean, airy, nicely appointed and provides a nice semi-water view of the harbor area. Dining is both inside... More

This is a fairly large restauarant, and there were only 2 other tables the whole hour or so we were there. Our server was... More

We love this place! It is one of our regular "go-to" places. We actually very rarely go out to eat but when we do this is great! The staff is super friendly and efficient. Flor and Adrianna are our favorite waitresses ever and Junior is one of the best bartenders in our experience. We highly recommend the "Make Me Happy"... More

We ordered two coronas. We received to glasses of water in corona glasses. Our food came out, Where are our beers? They finally came out half way thru our meals. Is it a custom or what. The routine usually is drinks come out then you order. It's all in the training. Management needs to assess this problem
