Good but understaffed
Food was incredible and very well priced! Our server was amazing and gave great recommendations and was overall very friendly. This was my first time going there and now I can’t wait to go back! If I could give 6 stars, I would.
We love this and thank you for the kind words!
Poor service from server. Took several minutes to get a drink. Eating outside was a cold experience. Food was okay. The churro dessert was not good.
sorry to hear that about your experience... We will certainly address these issues.
The restaurant had outdoor seating with decent spacing. It was kinda busy, so it was a nice atmosphere with outdoor heaters and a bit of privacy to help block the chilly breezes. All the food was very good - we ordered the Shrimp Ceviche (outstanding choice) as an appetizer, then had the Asada Skillet and Glazed Salmon as the entrees! Both were good, although the Glazed Salmon was excellent! We will definitely go back here again, especially when it warms up!!
The service was outstanding and the meal was phenomenal! My wife and I highly recommended this restaurant and we will definitely return soon!
Surprisingly Delicious. The carnitas, carne asada & pollo were all tender, lean & delicious. We will definitely be back.
First time here & the service was great! Cute place with delicious food!! Waiter was friendly & everyone was super welcoming!!
Incredible food and excellent service! Definitely will be returning again soon.
Thank you, see you next time!
Great service and food
I had the Toro track and steak quesadilla. Both were excellent. The service was fantastic.
I'll be back for sure.
The food here is always excellent. Because of my dietary restrictions, they cheerfully accommodated my request to make something not on their brunch menu, but from their regular menu, and turned it into a brunch item by putting a perfectly cooked egg with a little refried beans and salsa on top. It was great!
Food was delicious but service was severely lacking. I was disappointed because I even let the server know it was our first time dining with them but she was extremely absent.
Descanso is one of our favorites, consistently delivering great service, comfortable and warm patio seating and fabulous food and beverages. Whether we order takeaway or sit in the patio, we’ve always had a top notch experience. Don’t miss the Bad Hombre...my personal favorite cocktail😊
Great food, great atmosphere. Service was good but our server was very busy (not her fault) and was a bit slow (again not on her, just two big groups seated in her section).
The volcano taco was delicious-- I was definitely recommend this
Food was great! Def will come here again
Soooo so good. Service was awesome, food was unreal. This will be a regular spot for us now!
Great drinks and food had so much flavor!
Awesome restaurant great food and staff can’t complain.
Great food and service! First time there, would go back.
We had such a great time at dinner on Saturday night- service was great and the food was delicious!
Amazing experience! Would definitely go back and all of our servers gave my friends and I great service
I loved the food and the atmosphere
unsure how you can mess up a taco and burrito but they managed to! taco (fish) was greasy and it had random flavors that did not mix and some gooey disgusting sweet coleslaw. the burrito had pineapple in it... that would be illegal. horrible experience. my rose was cheap and syrupy. beer was way overpriced . never again ! our tequila flight was only thing that was ok since it helped ease the pain of the food. even the salsa (they make you pay for chips and salsa lol) was horrible ! random flavors in everything like someone just learned to cook and threw everything in to see how it turns out. save your money don’t come here.
They will take reservations, but won't honor them, i.e., you drive there to be told that there is no dining??
Hello Kevin, We never said there is no dining. We informed you that we are not doing FULL SERVICE DINING due to the state order. however, your reservation was still valid. Your table was reserved. We are simply only doing "picnic style" dining with your take out. Given the circumstances of what restaurants are going through, i would think you would be a little more understanding of our situation then to call us out like this.
Really good authentic Mexican cuisine .
Highly recommended !
The food and ambiance was amazing! They are offering “picnic style” take out so you can still enjoy great food and they have places you can sit and eat on the common patio and enjoy one of their tasty margaritas while you dine. Please continue to support one of our favorite local restaurants!!
Seated quickly by a friendly host. Attentive waitstaff and good timing-no rushes feeling or too much waiting. Delicious food! Lots of choices.
RSVP worked well. Seated on arrival. Great experience, service and food. Outdoor dining was very pleasant.
While our confirmed reservation through this app was canceled; they managed to put us at the bar.
Drinks, appetizers and the food was delicious. Definitely will have to go back when In the area.
Great food, great family outing on a Friday night. They have a fanatic safe outdoor area. Would highly recommend.
Overpriced and small portions. Staff wasn’t super accommodating despite us being the only patrons. Wouldn’t go back.
Loved this restaurant, the food was amazing, we ordered the chille relleno taco which was so different and delicious it was like fusion food,amazing flavor.Also the Allambra was so flavorful so different. The salsa and chips so fresh ,the salsa had a unique delicious taste.Only one draw back they charge you for the salsa and chips it's not complimentary and we didnt know that,so we kept ordering. Daisy our head server was the best she was friendly patient and had the best recommendations of food.I would definitely go back soon to visit this restaurant. We had an amazing experience and loved loved the food.
Romy, Thank you for great feedback... We really appreciate it. I wanted to explain why we charge for Chips and Salsa (and yes, you should have been informed).... We could have gone with a generic Salsa, but we really wanted to focus on presenting a premier salsa that is made fresh every day. we have someone that comes in every morning at 8am to make our salsa fresh. They slow roast the tomatoes on a grill, prep all the fresh chiles and ingredients & blend the batch to get it just right.
Great food at a great value!
Food was great.
First time dining there and we really enjoyed it. Service was very prompt, did have to wait a little long for the first drink but it was their 2 year anniversary and it was extremely busy. Food was very good except for the rice (not a fan) everything else was excellent.
Live music was also very very good. We will definitely be back!
Had Dinner and drinks with some friends for their 2 year anniversary. Food was phenomenal, Drinks were fantastic. It's NOT cheap by any means. But it's DEFINITELY a favorite of ours. And now our friends love it too. If you haven't been here yet, I suggest you go SOON!
Food was delicious , the taco bar excellent concept , the new taco guy was great, including the other guy working with him, our server rarely see her during our dining time. I extra tip our taco server. I feel he acknowledged me more then our server, she focus more on tables and other customer around us. Never got our water refill once. But the other family next to us were.
The busser excellent customer service.(worked Marriott before)
Tian, the guitar player & singer is exceptional! Created great ambience. Service and the food were great!
