    Really great food. The table side salsa was a really good experience and don’t worry the guacamole is included. I took my wife there for a date night and couldn’t of been happier. The exterior unimpressive, but the interior is beyond impressive. Don’t forget to try a shrimp dish.

    We regrettably made this reservation after forgetting about our last experience several months ago, which ended in frustration after long waits for every single need. That dining experience stretched to over 2 hours due to not being helped when needed. This visit started the same way. Not being seated promptly despite having a reservation (host disappeared for 10 minutes when we first walked in). We finally were led to our table and waited for a server. And waited. And waited. Someone walked by and flung chips onto the table, no greeting, no salsa, no napkins water or plates. We continued to wait, nibbling on dry chips. After 20 minutes, we left. What is the issue with the poor service at this restaurant?!? I remember the food being good from the last visit. But why treat us like an inconvenience? Some kind of prejudice against us specifically or just poorly run in general? Don't understand how this restaurant stays in business. Will never go back.

    There was a long line when we got there but we were immediately seated. Very loud but good food. The chef adapted my order to accommodate my food allergy. We will be back but always make a reservation

    Everything is so nice inside, decoration, ambiance, music, everything is so beautiful. Food is Outstanding, drinks and table side Guacamole and Salsa made in front of you. When we found this Restaurant I was in shock cause it’s so far from Phoenix. Anyway the bad issue that they have is one server that belongs to the LGBQT movement, I have nothing against that but the service that this guys deliver it’s so lousy, like he’s careless of customers, more paying attention to his friends that swing by and salutes them through the windows and not giving all the care to the customer. So long story short I feel like this guy does not belong in that Restaurant.

    Was so excited to try this location as we love the other locations in town. What a mistake! We had the worst service dinner took 1.5 hours and there were only three people in our party. The waiter surrounding us was able to serve five tables that sat after us before our food came and when my daughter’s chicken was burnt black, our waiter was like sorry, the other waiter saw the chicken came over and said “I will take care of this for you”. Luck of the draw with the service and despite the rest of the food being the usual great quality, we would never return to this location. They either don’t have enough help, the right help or it is horribly managed. As we were leaving there were five tables around us empty again and a line going out the door waiting to get a table. Front does not know how to manage flow/sitting but have seen this at their other restaurants too. Authentic Mexican food, just plan on a possible horrible experience if you wind up with the Team we had.

    The table-side salsa was great. Food was all good but the service was not on par. Waited a long time to order drinks then the appetizer came out with the main course. Disappointing as will likely go to another Guadalajara restaurant next time.

    Well, this experience was unlike any other that we have ever had with a restaurant. My wife and I were seated and we proceeded to review the menu’s. We were at the restaurant at approximately 6:45pm on a Friday evening and although there were many table filled, the restaurant was not at 100% capacity; there wasn’t even a line of people waiting for tables this night. For the next 15 minutes, not one employee of the restaurant made any contact with us. We watched several servers walk past our table multiple times and not one stopped to say, “we will be right with you”. The lack of attention to us, caused us to simply leave our menus on the table and leave for an alternative restaurant choice. I would like to say that I was overwhelmingly disappointed with this experience (and to a certain degree I am) but the fact of the matter is, we ended up at another Mexican restaurant that night. The alternative restaurant was smaller, less noisy, the temperature of the restaurant was not as frigid (this is Sept in Tucson, AZ) and they did not up-charge $6.95 for salas. Since when is this a thing to charge for salsa. This very likely is going to be the experience that keeps me away from this establishment in the future.

    The food was excellent, and the service was prompt, however, the server did forget to bring us tortillas, and a cheese crisp that we had ordered until he was reminded. The arroz con pollo was wonderful, and the fried ice cream was the perfect finisher for the evening.

    2nd time here.....Hebert was a great waiter!! The ambiance and noise level was good. Was there around 5pm.....busy but not overly. My meal was steak ranchero and I enjoyed it. My wife ordered coconut shrimp....it arrived overcooked/dark brown/ almost burnt. It should not have been served to us. We should have returned it, but didn't as we were with a group of people. But it wasn't good, so disappointing. Watermelon margarita's are great....everything else was good. Will go back, but next time I would return the bad meal if it happened again. They lost some cred with us due to the meal.

    Nice atmosphere, good service, and excellent food. My favorite is the Molcajete Camarones (shrimp). Portions are large so plan to take some home. Try the tableside salsa or guacamole.

    We had a great experience at the new Guadalajara’s Grill! We had a 4:00 dinner reservation and I think that’s the key. It was not very busy, the happy hour margarita was spot on, the food and service were excellent. We left at 5:00 and people were waiting outside so get there early…

    The only issue they appeared to be having was the communication between their Mgmt. and Open Table. We did make reservations through OpenTable, however the Mgmt. their said they had "turned off" the Rez feature with OpenTable due to the amount of business they had. People were waiting to get in without reservations with a wait of up to an hour. Others were walking in saying they had a reservation which the Mgmt. telling them they can't honor the reservation since it was supposed to have been turned off during their peak times....like Friday nights.... We were just fortunate to have made our early enough to not be impacted by this...
