I was so happy when Playa opened but was not ready to have my taste bud's blown-away!!! As a 40 year plus vegetarian I can't say enough about the many veg dishes they offer and my wife has every meat and sea food dish to enjoy. Their mole sauce will have you asking for side of extra to cover your plate. Service is some of the best yet not over done. Whatever you do don't pass up the hand made Margaritas, Muy, May, Bien !

Everything was great! Grilled octopus tacos and oxtails in a delicious mole sauce were the highlights of our meal. The great part about our 'first visit' is that we ordered things we wouldn't ordinarily have anywhere else. Oh the ceviche was also very good! Lots of locals filled the restaurant on a week night, so I'd recommend booking a reservation and not rely on 'winging it'. Good wait staff and the chef was pretty happy that night. Nice meal with friends...

Went there for dinner and it was 6 of us. The waiter was extremely polite and knowledgable. Cocktails and tequila were great!
We had few types of tacos, which were good.

The atmosphere was nice too. There weren't that many people in the restaurant, so we could hear each other, which was important for the occasion.

The food was average but the cost was way over the top. Drinks were also very expensive. The server was very personable although a little over familiar.
