“Good food but pricey and not memorable”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

Had dinner here while in Cabo with friends. Nice view of the Marina on the outdoor patio. Seafood was fresh and pretty good but it was more expensive than any meal we would get in LA.

It ran us about 100 per person for one drink each, one appetizer for the table and one entree each, no dessert. If I were to return to Cabo I'd probably look for a less expensive alternative, it just wasn't that memorable.

“So good!!”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

My husband and I recently ate at Lorenzillo's for supper. He had been there before, years ago, and took me back. We knew full well it was on the pricey side and did not mind, You get what you pay for. They have a great wine list, we started with jumbo shrimp cocktail and calamari, both were very good. My husband is a steak guy, he had the filet mignon and said it was perfect. I opted for King crab legs (1pound) and they were done just right. The ambiance was excellent, we sat inside but along the window, overlooking the harbor. Our waiter had a great sense of humor and was very good at his job. My husband accidentally wrote the total amount of our bill (to be charged on our credit card) in the line for the tip and our waiter quickly brought that to our attention which we thought was very honest of him. All in all, it was one of the best meals we've had. We would go again, and have the lobster this time!

“WAYYYY Overpriced!”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

This was quite a racket. Nice waiters and staff, but the prices are SO high and bad. This was a $200 meal, and only one of us had lobster. I upgraded my shrimp to the largest (they put it on display to have waiters "up-sell" clients) and it was a $55 meal that was SO not worth it. You'll get better (or as good) shrimp at Costco for 1/3 of this, and more of it. Avoid this place. Yes, they have live lobster, which is good, but it costs an arm and a 'claw' for it. Just down the harbor "Ole, Ole" served two lobster tails and a baked potato with steamed veg for $25. So there you go... you're welcome.

“A Cabo landmark”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Lorenzillo's in Cabo is a great place to have a quiet, intimate dining experience. Located on the harbor the views are spectacular. You can dine inside or outside on the patio. My wife had lobster while I had snapper. The service was very efficient and the food was excellent. The wine list was comprehensive. Lorenzillo's location is perfect. It's close to the harbor and shopping. The Cabo location is smaller and more intimate than the Cancun restaurant. That being said both are great dining choices.

“What happened?”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Looking so forward to one of our usual "musts." It's always been one of our favorites for lobster and Alaskan king crab with amazing wine. The wine was excellent and that's where it ends. We ordered the baked oyster appetizer and i thought I was going to vomit in my mouth. My better half spit her's out over the balcony into the marina water, even the fish wouldn't touch it because of the stench and chewy texture. They did take it off of our bill thankfully. Even Casey swung and missed occasionally and we came for the crab so let bygones be bygones "bring on the legs." We were drooling for the yum yum with butter. That's until the crab came in a virtual water bath with no flavor at all still thawing from the hypothermic chamber it was shipped in.
I won't go back here next time in Cabo unless I read on TA that it's regained it's former glory. There are too many other options. Sad to say it buy "adios Lorenzillo's."
