From the moment we walked in, the service was excellent. The margaritas were some of the best we have ever had in a restaurant. The seafood was amazing, and the portions huge. We had not visited in a few years, and decided to try it again with another couple. We will not wait so long to come back.

This is NOT in any way like any Mexican restaurant I've experienced. Classy ambiance, great personalized service, and a fantastic menu. I've lived in AZ, CO, NM, and eaten this cuisine for decades. This was totally new.

A very few times in my memory I recall having such a taste experience that my other senses seemed to shut down and what was going on in the taste receptors ruled my brain. Eyes close... Sounds dim...Friends recede... Happened last night at Baltazar's. My dinner companions accused me of some very suggestive things I will not repeat here... :)... More

Owner is very friendly and remembers old and steady customers. Food and service are excellent. Mostly consistent, but a had a couple pieces of bad chicken in my enchilada Julia last time. I will still return.

This is a place I always forget about when I am thinking of where to eat. My boyfriend hadn't been and a friend had recommended it so I was excited to go back for a great meak. The portions are huge so sharing is a good idea. I am not a huge mexican food fan but there is so many... More

You would not expect fresh great seafood at a high end Mexican Restaurant. The king crab the shrimp and scallops would rate on quality with anywhere in USA. The Lobster was pacific and average. The quality and overall seafood meal was outstanding. Cost is high yet well worth it.

I was really looking forward to dining at Baltazar's as I had remember the food being very good. Pros: Huge selection of seafood dishes. Chips are fresh, Nice atmosphere. The service by everyone else beside the owner is very good. Cons: The food is now way overpriced for the quality of it. When you spend $30+ a plate you expect... More

Whenever we are in Bend, my wife and I make a point of going to Baltazar's at least once because it is, or was, that good. Lately, though, it seems to have slipped in quality, which, I hope, was due to a staff shortage (2 servers and a line cook failed to show up for work, leaving the owner to... More

Wonderful ambience, OUTSTANDING FOOD, great staff, reasonable prices, margarita's to die for and Baltazar's is a dream. What more can you ask for? My favorite place to bring family from out of town and a great place to just have a leisurely, quiet and (unlike so many other places) non rushed dinner. I would highly recommend this restaurant, you won't... More
