“Superb Mexican for gourmands”
Reviewed November 11, 2008

I eat here several times a year, and have never had anything other than an exceptional culinary experience.

I am a passionate fan of all forms of Mexican cuisine, from low to high, and often spend my time in Los Angeles eating at a different Mexican restaurant every day, joined by friends who are similarly inclined. La Serenata Gourmet consistently serves the most delicious food of any Mexican restaurant of the countless greater Los Angeles Mexican restaurants on our list of favorites. Both traditional and innovative, this is a must for anyone with a passion for great Mexican cuisine. The mole sauce is over the moon, as are the gorditas.

It's true that the service sometimes is harried, but our experience is that the staff is warm and friendly to customers who are the same back to them. For the least crazed atmosphere, try going for a late lunch. Also, there are serious food allergies in our group of diners, and none of us have ever had a problem here with our meal being prepared as per requests.
