This place was recommended and so we had good expectations. We WANTED to like it. When we arrived there was hardly any customers so one would expect good service. A girl came by and plopped our water down on our table without saying a word of greeting. Then returned and plopped down chips and salsa-again without a word---no welcome, no hello-nothing. After we had been there a while a group of people came in and sat at a table next to us and the server waited on them and took their orders before ours!! Finally the server came and took our orders and saw our salsa was gone but we still had chips so offered to bring us more salsa but never did. Our food finally came and our water carafe was empty by then and the server took it and NEVER brought any water back. It was hard to choke down the food without water. We had a coupon for a free dessert but they wouldnt honor it because they said one of our meals wasn't an "entree" even though it cost $10.99!! The food wasn't nasty but wasn't anything special either and the poor service and unfriendliness of the staff combined to make the whole thing a less than pleasant experience.

We've been to Baja Cantina several times, on several different trips to Park City. Our first visit or two were memorable. Great food, good salsa. Just a nice place to hang out at the end of the day.

However, on our last 2 visits, in 2011 and 2013, the food has gone downhill. We ordered nachos, which looked pretty good, but were flavorless. Even the jalapeno slices didn't have much flavor!

I wouldn't go back and can't recommend Baja Cantina.

It isn't the best Mexican food I've ever had, but the service was great and the atmosphere is fun. Additionally, the location is prime - right next to the Alpine Coaster/Slide/Zip-line.

This was the most open restaurant in a recent visit to Park City. The staff was quite accommodating, and the overflowing crowd was waiting to get in. We enjoyed especially the salads, big and meaty-filled, and the salsa, which was really good. No chili rellenos, sadly, were on the menu. We thought that the food was a bit overpriced, paying Approx $24.00 for salad and drink seemed steep even for a mountain town, with average food as the draw. But, it was the best option, and was somewhat reliable.

I'm afraid I was not impressed with the Baja Cantina this visit. Have eaten there multiple times before and always enjoyed the food.

This time, it was not a good as in times past. The chips were so overly salty, I had to try and brush the salt off to enjoy them.

The enchilada, tamale and black bean taco were all just mediocre and somewhat bland. And the prices are considerably higher than our last visit a year ago.

We ate earlier than usual, 5:00 pm and there were not many people there at the time so we were seated promptly and served quickly.

I feel bad, as I had always held Baja Cantina high on my list. I may struggle with the idea of returning anytime soon.
