“Good food, nice restaurant”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

The four of us ate here on a Sunday afternoon in February and enjoyed the food very much. There was nothing exceptional about the food, service or drinks. We ate on the outdoor patio which was nice, but cool, but we chose to eat outside. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. They were quite busy while we were there, but seemed to handle it well.

“Good Food -- Terrible service”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

After a 20 minute wait we were shown to our table on the beautiful patio. About 10 minutes later a server brought water and without comment or eye contact left. A few minutes later, our waiter showed up saying " I have too much to do." We never saw him again. The food showed up -- it was really good Mexican combination. The margaritas were well done. I would go here again for the food. Unless the service improves, I would not go back. It was clear, the night we ate here Guadalajara had more business than wait staff.

“Maybe it was a bad night in Old Town.....”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

It wasn't that busy, it wasn't that crowded...CG is a touristy spot in Old Town; thought it might be good for a mid-week dinner. That being said, its hard to explain being ignored by wait staff for over an hour, with no apologies or efforts made to correct the oversight. The margarita we had while waiting was decent and very inexpensive; the bar staff was quite pleasant. Never had the food, though--thought it best to find something down the block. We aren't "get in your face and yell" kind of patrons--might work better at CG. If you go, stay by the door; going to the bar may mean food elsewhere on a cold night!

“Fine”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We ate here on a recent trip to San Diego. It was very busy and most of the patrons seemed to be local people. The food was fresh and plentiful but a little bland for my taste. (I tend to like Tex-Mex food better.) Good service.

“Fantastic Food and service !”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

The food was wonderful and the bar staff works hard at making sure you have everything you need. We sat at the bar, since there was a 45 min. wait. Great prices, fantastic food, excellent drinks and good prices.
