Cascada is a high end Mexican restaurant which has incredible food. We are speaking of enchiladas supremes which are enchiladas with lobster. I enjoyed rack of lamb brushed with garlic. It was comparable to a rack served by any of our native San Francisco restaurants. The service is excellent. Mollie our waiter was very attentive but never intrusive. The cocktails... More

Great staff, great drinks and really stellar food. Basa tacos and the tacos al Carbon were some of the best I've had. The salsa were different and delicious! Really good.

Cascada has good Mexican food, but with a twist. I love the enchiladas supremas, with artichoke hearts, not a traditional dish but tasty. Cascada has a full bar and a wide selection of margaritas. And, if you have the kids with you, they also serve burgers and nice big burritos.

I have been eating at Cascada since they first opened. Love their food. And it starts with the chips and ... Wait 2 kinds of salsa ... And bean dip !!!! The Rancho Burrito is spicy and has lots of steak. I describe Cascada to my friends as Mexican Cuisine... Not just Mexican food!!!

We recently visited Placerville for a family wedding and stopped by Main Street to grab lunch before heading to the wedding. A couple of locals recommended Cascada as a very good place to eat with good Mexican food. As Mexican food-lovers, we happily went to Cascada to check it out. The interior was pleasant and the serving staff attentive. While... More

We always order their chicken fajitas and Negro Modelo or Margaritas when we visit. Always very good. And we LOVE the chips and salsas they bring to the table. A cut above. Sometimes we enjoy eating at the bar, or in the bar area, when we are not with a crowd (and 3 makes a crowd).

We stopped by on a Friday night and had the carnitas and the carnitas burrito. Best carnitas we've had the pleasure of eating! Staff, ambience and price all wonderful! Highly recommend.

I can only attest to the Basa tacos and chips and salsas. Everyone has different tastes of course so my experience of the food is just that, my own. Tacos were fresh, fish was tasty and there certainly was enough on the tacos to taste it. They were a little bland and needed to have some sauce on them so... More

We tried this place for dinner a couple of times. Nice dinner menu and good service and a pretty place too. If street parking is tough use free city garage. One of us is allergic to cilantro and everything seemed to be infused with it.

Thank Tom W
