Excellent casual dinner experience

Here on a semi-busy Thursday evening with the family. We called ahead for a reservation which was taken happily, as there was really a wait at 8PM anyway.

The presentation was wonderful! My dish .. the one pictured....is one that Guy Fiera featured on DDD.... My only complaint was that it was stuffed with smoked chicken...mostly dark meat which I do not like. Waiter suggested next time to specify white meat only... Loved the salsa bar with several different salsas form very hot to mild! I will definitely... More

We visited on a Tuesday afternoon when it was not busy so service was quick. Our server was friendly. My husband had the Gordito burrito which was enough to feed an army, and just perfect as he had leftovers for later. I had the fajitas magnifico which were not so mangnifico. It was mostly charrred and not carmelized onions and... More

Long wait for a Saturday night but was good. Salsa bar was okay, wish they had more selections. Very cute idea! pineapple habenero was good, not especially hot but was missing something. We ended up mixed it with the mild Pico and was great w extra salt. I ordered the original carnitas which were really good. Loved the grilled pieces... More

We came because we were looking for an eatery that had Native American food and on a Google search Salsa Brava came up. We called and made a reservation over the phone, which was good because when we got there it was packed! And it was a Tuesday night, which we did not think most people would be eating out,... More

Really, Really Good Mexican Food!!! An abundant menu offers many choices to the patrons. The salsa bar in good but is limited to only one "mild" choice. I like hot/spicy food so it didn't bother me, but my wife found all but one choice to be too hot for her. The food is fresh and cooked to order Navajo Tacos... More

We really enjoyed this popular Mexican restaurant. The salsa bar had several tasty choices of homemade salsa with varying degrees of heat. The lobster and shrimp enchiladas were delicious. We tried the sopapillas for dessert...yummy. The service was very friendly and quick, and the prices were very reasonable. We would definitely eat here again.

We loved eating here...obviously the food is Mexican but the salsa bar is unique. It works like a salad bar except it is salsa. There are about 5 or 6 different salsa choices. You get little dip bowls and can try a variety of homemade salsas with chips. The lobster and shrimp enchiladas with a cilantro cream sauce are really... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we were glad we took their advice. Plenty of great chips and a salsa bar. Great entrees and nice size portions. Quick and courteous service and great price. Loved it.

Not the best at all food obviously sat on plates for a while before being served and food was bland when it came. Service was good though
