My husband and I had dinner on a Sunday night at Cantina Feliz. We have dined here several times and always enjoyed it. We were comfortable with the seating (tables were spaced). Service was good and the always remarkable margaritas were flowing... however the kitchen was very slow. When our food finally arrived, it was cold. Disappointing. Maybe they have fewer cooks due to Covid regulations. We like it, so will be back this summer when hopefully things are closer to "normal."

The food and service were on point, and everything was paced out perfectly even given the timing restriction. Still one of the best if not the best spots for Mexican fare in our region.

They’re taking COVID-19 restrictions very seriously which is a huge plus for us. The food was outstanding and came out in record time. The drinks were the best margaritas I’ve had in a long time. All of the employees were kind and friendly. Our server was enthusiastic and had great suggestions. Overall, couldn’t have been better.

We were a group of 7 women. We were seated in a private room which gave us lots of opportunity for conversation etc. We weren't rushed out at the end of the night. Our server was great and food was excellent. We'll be back for sure.

Overall food was good. I was surprised that with your taco’s pico de Gallo, didn’t automatically come with it. Also the guacamole was just ok. A little disappointed since I love guacamole.

Had Valentine’s dinner there with my wife. The fish tacos were excellent. The queso could’ve been a little hotter—both temperature and spice level—but it was fine. Good, strong margaritas. I look forward to returning.

We’ve been going to Cantina for years. I always love it. I really dislike giving bad reviews and very rarely do give them but I feel like I have to this time. During a time where we aren’t going out much and if we do it takes a lot of thought and preparation, I felt really bad about my experience. I’ve been to other restaurants lately who really are doing amazing with the hand they’ve been dealt.

The food was good as usual but our service was terrible. Took forever to get a drink, I never even got mine. By the time she remembered I didn’t want it anymore. Then for apps I asked for something I’ve been getting there for more than a decade and she immediately turned me down. Didn’t even say let me ask first. She later brought out the app and said the manager agreed. Well, I’m sure he would have agreed had you asked initially! You just refused to.
During our dinner I ordered tacos al carbon which are essentially fajitas, I got no tortillas and had to track someone down to bring me some.
Dessert came and I had to ask her to order something and she seemed confused and annoyed.

I can’t put into words what it was but she was not prepared and I can’t say she was busy because sadly restaurants aren’t even at full capacity currently. I just think we had bad luck with service. Sadly, it won’t be our first choice next time we’re going out to dinner......

We had the most delicious flatbread mushroom pizza and fabulous wild mushroom tacos, with truffle oil... my friend had the warm brownie and homemade cinnamon ice cream with caramel popcorn Sundae, and also the warm delicious chocolate chip cookies! Wonderful Monday surprise! The sweetest server, and the most wonderful sugar skull decor!!

We love this restaurant except we had a new waitress and she was not very attentive so we asked the manager to order more food for us and she was wonderful. I love their food, it is always fresh and delicious. The best margaritas In the area! I will be returning! I miss nick at the bar! Can’t wait until Covid is over.

Loved the guacamole and that’s about it! Our server rarely came to our table, I had to get up and order our drinks while she was at a computer terminal. Food took forever and I do understand things are different because of the pandemic. But we were there well over 2 hours because of never seeing our server and waiting almost an hour for our entrees. Not authentic Mexican. Would not recommend going here.

Food is definitely not authentic mexican cuisine. Food was cold and tasteless. Service was fine, margaritas are ok. If you want a mexican cuisine experience, this is not the place.

Cantina Feliz is a great establishment. Plenty of options for both food and drink, all of which are fantastic!

Every person who works there combine to make for an excellent experience. The lovely hosts, the kitchen staff who work to craft such delicious dishes (the carnitas tacos are a must have), the wait staff (our server, Kaia, was equal parts knowledgeable and endearing), and even a manager who stopped by to make sure everything was going well!

Overall, I give this restaurant a 5/5 review across the board. I will be back soon!
