“Wonderful restaurant in San Jose del Cabo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Beautiful place, very nice ambiance, delicious food (though a bit pricey) and good service. The hands-on touch by the chef and the owner is noteworthy. Would definitely return whenever possible.

“Reservation ignored”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We are here now in Los Cabos. On Saturday, we took a walk around San Jose del Cabo to check out different restaurants for dinner that evening. After looking at several, we decided on Morgan's Encore so we decided to walk back and make our reservation. We were shown two choices for a table for 2. I inquired about another table but was told the tables for 4 are for 4 people. So, we chose a large table for 2 in a nice spot and made our reservaton for 7:30 that evening. The man who took the reservation said he would make sure that the table we selected was held for us. This conversation took place right in front of the woman and wait staff at the reservation and seating desk. We saw him write our name in the book and the time of the reservation.

We arived at the restaurant at about 7:15 or so and saw a couple sitting at the table we reserved. We gave the person who greeted us our name and pointed out the table we reserved. Since we were a little early, we asked if the seated couple would be finished soon and he said they were just seated there a few minutes prior to our arrival. He made a big deal of trying to tell us that we did not reserve that table so I asked him to look in the book at the reservation desk and there was our name and time but he pointed out that the other man did not write the table number down. He offered us another table explaining several times that it was "human error". Strangely (and annoyingly) enough we now could have a table for 4 since the tables for 2 were all taken, but we declined as we felt we had wasted our time selecting a table and making a reservation in the first place. We asked to see the man who took our reservation but he was not there. The woman at the desk said she did not think we had selected a table since it was not noted in the book and we would have to take whatever was available. We left.

So be sure when making a reservation at this place for a specific table that they note the table number in the reservation book.

We ended up having a delicious dinner and wonderful entertainment at the Tropicana Restaurant in the beautiful back dining area.

In the end, we were delighted that Morgan's Encore had made a mistake with our reservation since perhaps the meal and service there would have been an even bigger mistake as well.

“A great find at Art Walk!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

After walking around the thursday night Art Walk & looking a many restaurant menus, we decided on this gem. The ambiance was gorgeous and the service was excellent. The food was very fresh and flavourful. I noticed a lot of people who seemed to be regulars that were coming and going. The food was pricey for San Jose, but well worth it. In my opinion it isn't a tank top or flip flop place. I will definitely return on my next trip.

“Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

This is one of the best resturants in San Jose del Cabo. We have been eatting here for years and the food is unique, great and the dining experience is wonderful . The selection of Mexican wines is really good. We had pâté that was out of this world and so was the wine! You can't go wrong!

“You will LOVE it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We've been more times than I can count and I always forget to review this amazing restaurant!
The food is always exceptional. No one in our party has ever had a complaint. The chef drops by at the end of the night to check in on things. Super nice man!
Top of my food list: Fish of the day in a lemon caper sauce, Lamb Chops, any pasta dish- all the salads and appetizers. You really can't go wrong.
The service is right up there! The servers are willing to accommodate any request and they know the wine list quite well.
The atmosphere is the main thing. It's quiet and quaint and classy. They have a musician playing soothing but groovy music throughout the evening. There is a rooftop dining option with a fireplace. It's a bit breezy to sit up there January- February, but you'll have to reserve early for a rooftop table by mid-March.
This lovely restaurant does not disappoint! Enjoy it!
