    We had a great time. Delicious food and great service. Music was very loud couldn’t hear each other. Music selection was more for a club not a fancy restaurant.

    Food was okay, portions were small for the price and presentation was definitely gimmicky. The main issue was the noise. We were packed into a row of people (I’ve had more room on a Spirit flight) while all around us were empty tables. Then, a drunk guitarist played along to music that was BLARING throughout the restaurant - but he only managed to strum every 11th or 12th note then would saunter around the place like he was going to steal a purse. Very weird. Maybe I’m just old and not hip enough for this place!

    Dinner was amazing. Reservation was easy on OpenTable. Hostess sat us promptly. Our waiter Justin was very nice, accommodating, and attentive. All of the staff was very friendly. Food was great! Started with a heavy portion of smoked octopus. Tried the truffle pasta next and it was fantastic. Then we had the branzino which was light and buttery. Everything was so good, and we didn't have room for dessert. Special thanks to the manager who even sent us over shot from the bar. Ambience was a vibe by the pool area and the music was great too. Definitely going back.

    It was very disappointing. I understand it was their first few weeks being opened but more preparation would of made this place a bit better. A few of the things that occurred: my reservation was at 9p didn’t get seated until 10:15p (we were not the only ones waiting for a table as well) . Second , the manager mentioned a free round of drinks for waiting which was seat but failed to tell the waiter we figured we’d ask pay for it since they were way overwhelmed. Lastly , we had ordered their ribeye wagyu , we asked for a steak knife , THEY RAN OUT OF THEM . The waiter was sweet and offered that we would get one from their other restaurants im guess their (la casita ). Sadly , I expected more of this place . I’m glad I checked it out but never going there again .

    Our meal was delicious however it took incredibly long to receive our orders and the music was so loud I couldn’t even hear my friend sat directly next to me. The waiter profusely apologized and was very attentive but the bartenders were backed up and it took approximately 2 hours for our dinner and drinks to arrive. They remedied with complimentary birthday cakes for my friends and my matching birthday celebration but I’m apprehensive to come back to such a busy and loud restaurant.

    Friendly service, but insanely slow. We were missing a dish and a cocktail, which no one realized until we were finished our meal. It was impossible to get anyone's attention to let them know. We were sat at a very low table, which was not comfortable for dinner but would be good for cocktails. My cocktail was beautifully presented, but we make better drinks at home. Overall, not impressed and would not recommend.

    This isn't really a restaurant, its more like the pool snack bar. there's only 7-8 items on the menu, service is very limited, and there was construction going on just over the fence from our table.

    The scene is energetic and fun, but if you are wanting a date night, this is probably not your spot. It's a fairly new spot, and so I think there are a few kinks to work out. The service was really slow... It took almost 20 minutes to get our drink, and we had three different servers come to our table, so we did not know who our server was. There was a DJ and his friends in the corner, but it was so loud that you couldn't really have a conversation. The food is very good though, and the taco's are a good size for the price.

    La Casita was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had. The location, the staff, and the attention they gave was top notch. The DJ kept things real live. The hostesses took me in to the bar first to wait for my date. The bartenders were full of personality and checked on me while I waited. I had a great seat with great weather. A cool breeze blowing through DTLA with the sunshine gave me life. Sitting next to the pool where EVERYONE was looking amazing. The waitress ( she had fluorescent colored hair) was very attentive and I felt like she really understood the value she was adding to my date. We had the Ceviche and the chicken elote bowl with a glass of wine ( can’t remember what it was called). We also had chips and salsa. Long story short there was an issue with my order. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate my date and I. They also comped a portion of the check. Another woman in plainclothes with only a badge asked what the special occasion was and recommended a chocolate creme brûlée. It was nothing less than fire. All the food,everyone there, gave 100%. My date has only been in Los Angeles for three weeks and it was a very welcoming moment for her.

    Great ambience and beautiful decor. Service could use improvement, timing of when dishes and drinks came out was off. Manager was accommodating at correcting an order that was put in incorrectly and removed it from the bill which wasn’t necessary. I think if more time was taken to listen to our order then things could have run more smoothly and efficiently. I think they intend to have good service, but something about it just seems to lack the experience that other restaurants have. Food was decently priced and tasted fine, but was not memorable. Drinks were overpriced and too sweet, they sounded better on the menu than they tasted/ were presented. Would likely not return unless invited for an event.

    Chips and guacamole were excellent for our starter. 2 street tacos were tiny, one person in our party went away hungry. Bowl was a better choice. Corn side was tasty. Service very slow. A little pricey for what we got.

    Food and drinks are delicious and you can’t beat the vibe. The ambiance gives you vacation vibes while being minutes from home. The only thing that I would suggest is having salsa. They have pico and it’s good but having salsa would be a plus. Servers were great and the walking bass player was awesome!

    From the chips and salsa to the entries, the food was excellent and cooked to perfection. The Caesar Salad with grilled salmon was enjoyed by my guest, while the flat iron steak was by myself. The collection of drinks also added to the easy flow of this establishment. The staff kept asking if we were good and needed anything else. Awesome experience.

    Great service from host, our server was excellent. Food can be better for being considered vegan and organic. Goat cheese on black beans it’s not vegan. Overall I would go back, the food needs to have a quality check before being put on a plate, before being called something it’s not.

    It was our first time here. We booked a reservation and when we finally arrived the host tried to give us a table in the corner passing the pool away from everything. We seen all these pics online of course we wanted better seats. But she acted like that was all she could provide until I requested to sit upstairs and she acted like she didn’t want to check until I decided to walk upstairs myself. Once I found a table our lovely waitress came and greeted us right away and made our experience much more better!! And please forgive me for not remembering her name but she was a petite shoulder length brown hair young lady with a energetic vibe! She was so awesome!! The food looked and tasted great!! Will come back because of her! Thank you!!

    Honestly there were too many wrong things to name. Service was terrible, drinks took 30mins to come out, then when they came out we had to send one of the drinks back because it tasted like pure strawberry syrup, it was supposed to be on the rocks but there was no ice. People concierged their covid tests and swabbing their noses next to us, super awkward. The food was just ok. Will not be going back.

    Honestly I wanted to order a pizza a couple hours later after spending $60 on a dinner for one. My server forgot about me and I had to get up twice, once for silverware, once to see where my drink was half an hour after ordering (and to get my check). It was over $80 with tip and I was hungry up in my room a little later. Just not my favorite experience on a little staycation I took myself on.

    If you want to have dinner don’t bother they don’t even have enough tables for everyone to dine. Literal waste of time. We had to go elsewhere, noticed another party also leaving for the same reason. They seat you near the pool on a couch and NO dinning table. 🤦🏻‍♀️

    Our server Paige was wonderful! I have a TON of allergies, and she made sure to write them all down and check with the chefs on everything before placing my food orders. Always appreciate a place that takes allergies seriously without making me feel like a huge burden/inconvenience. Food was awesome, although I do think that while the tacos were great as well, not quite worth $15 for 2 when I got a whole steak bowl for $16. But that’s just me. Drinks were amazing and unique, and loved the ancho chili creme brûlée! Will definitely be coming back :)

    Had to wait over an hour past our reservation time for a table, and was told that they overbooked everything on purpose so there was nothing that could be done. Also the music was so loud that you had to yell across the table to talk. Not exactly what we expected.
