We have enjoyed both breakfast and dinner here, and can equivocally state that the food, service and ambiance are stellar. Nice wine and cocktail selections also. Our dinner entrees were accompanied by a wonderful medley of fresh vegetables. Both the fish and the steak were...More

Very disappointing. We were hoping for somewhere for those special occasions. The service was terrible and horrendously slow. When the food finally arrived it was stone cold. Appetizers were forgotten and instead arrived after the main meal. It was a birthday disaster at a significant...More

We have been here a few times, but this may be our last. While the ambiance is wonderful something has happened to the food quality. There may be a new chef, it may have been an off night but it's not worth it. The salmon...More

The restaurant is set in a beautiful house so what you are getting here for atmosphere is classic Mexican Hacienda. The food was very good, the service was absolutely top notch. There are several gorgeous rooms to rent on the well maintained grounds. They gave...More

They list on Tripadvisor as a restaurant but they list elsewhere (in local papers) as a hotel, spa, bar, nightclub kind of place. We showed up to eat, but they did not show up to feed us. They are clearly having problems deciding.

The Hacienda del Lago changed owners and location a few months ago. How do I remove the review that I wrote for my visit to the old HdL? Currently, they do not have permits to operate. They are on a quiet residential street where parking is a nuisance for the neighbors. The owner has been told that she cannot open legally. I am aghast that my old review is still showing up on their information page.

They are now legal and the neighbors happy because their fear of late night noise never happens. Parking is fine outfront and you park down at the malecon. It's a great boutique hotel with a wonderful location.
