Solo midweek dinner. Greeted warmly, seated promptly. Service was top notch - friendly and attentive.

Not the "most authentic" Mexican meal I've had, but not bad. Margarita was larger than expected - but was also $11.00... And that's the real issue.

One drink, one app and one meal should cost less than it did in a Mexican restaurant. While experience was good overall, the price will keep me away.

Thank Anthony D

We live very near this place, and have been several times. We LOVE the salsa and mixed drinks. The food is generally very good, and the servers (all of them) are unfailingly nice and attentive. We always have our toddler with us. Sometimes servers (at other places) can be a little worried about small child shenanigans, or untidiness, and this worry seems to affect their mood, but you would never see that sort of fear from the servers at Cabo. They always welcome us warmly, and are really nice to the 2-year-old. We love the decor, particularly the water wall, and the lighting is really nice.

The only downside of going to Cabo is the parking. On weekend nights, some guys that I assume are affiliated with the restaurant put traffic cones in all of the parking spots, and then demand that you take advantage of their valet service. The parking lot is public, and the spots are literally right in front of the restaurant, with the furthest spots being 20-30 feet away from the front door. It is maddening. The obvious cash-grab really puts us off, and makes us not go to Cabo as much as we usually would, because we don't want to argue with the valet people.

While I like the decor and the wait staff is excellent and very attentive, the Mexican food offered here is in need of a true authentic infusion, The dishes are average and while the food is ok, it is deeply missing a true Mexican flair and flavor.
Simple things such as serving the tortilla chips warmed vs cold and taking the over chill out of the salsa would be an easy fix and begin the dining experience om a different note. The rice served with the platters was actually very good. The tacos and fajitas definitely missing that authentic flair.
Had a coconut and traditional margarita and both were great!

This restaurant is trendy and fashionable with lovely decor, large bar area, and a small dining room. I chose this venue for a small 40th birthday celebration based on a friend's recommendation. My husband paid for 23 people and the bill wasn't insane. The food was freshly prepared and tasty. The sangria is phenomenal. The service was personal and thorough. My friend surprised me with a freshly baked birthday cake. The restaurant does have a policy of not allowing outside cakes in the restaurant. However, they were more than agreeable once management heard it have celiac disease and wouldn't be able to have any other dessert to celebrate my birthday. After dinner, we danced till almost closing. It was truly an amazing evening. The only downfall is that the restaurant is very small, so everyone is on top of each other. The place was packed from when we got there at 830 until we left at 230. All in all, and awesome experience. We can't wait to go back!

Very loud the place is more of a nightclub that seems to be what they concentrate on more then being a restaurant... The decor is very nice but the food is nothing to write home about... The food tastes like it could be from any Mexican chain restaurants...
