We had such a fabulous time! The staff were all lively and personable, food was was so fulfilling and we left very satisfied. The BBQ Cauliflower bowl was phenomenal! A new favorite for sure.
The food was great. The margaritas were terrific. Our server, Sarah, was the absolute best! One of our favorite places in Fairmount.
Wonderful service, delicious food, and attentive to needs of families dining with kids.
Cantina Feliz never disappoints. Even during Covid the staff was upbeat and helpful, rolled with the punches of moving to a virtual menus, turned out delicious food, and was an overall great dining experience. The spicy fruit margaritas are delicious, and the shrimp tacos or possibly the best I’ve ever had. The garden is beautiful and all the prices can be, well, pricey, happy hour offer some deals that help ease the pain in your wallet.
Excellent as always. Staff is fantastic!
Yelp recommended this place. Spent $16 on margarita which tasted like straight lime juice. How could you mess up a margarita? The chips and salsas were terrible, too. Chillis had them better. The only thing good was the churros French toast. I would have ordered second had we weren't full. Overall, good ambiance, excellent service, terrible food.
Very nice neighborhood find...food was very well done and the service was quick. It's a small spot but very nice ambience for sure. I've been to bigger places with larger selection but I would comeback for sure.
Waiter was awesome. Food and drinks was great. Love their happy hour as well.
Food was great but service could certainly be improved. The waiter was very neglectful and inattentive during our dinner. Attention was not paid to check in, replenish drinks or even take orders in a timely manner. Parties that arrived after us received food before we did which was quite unpleasant to watch.
The food was delicious! The value was good. We ate in the back courtyard. We enjoyed our first date!
Great food, great service. 100% recommend.
Great place all around!
Overall very great experience. Will be going again.
We went during happy hour it was great. We were seated right away and had the nachos and some drinks. All was very good.
Great margaritas and steak tacos! A little expensive for what you get, but good overall.
Nice outside area and tropical margarita was great. Fish tacos tastes like from a box, not fresh.
Cute spot with good food! The margaritas aren’t super strong or anything to write home about but good overall! I like that there’s outdoor and indoor dining options too!
Love the tropical margarita! Beautiful interior design and great service.
Peter was amazing!
I had the carnitas tacos and some feliz margaritas, amazing!
Super friendly staff, great food.
Always hits. 10/10
Great service as always! Our waiter, Peter, was a super star! Even though he was serving every table. He still made the time to make us feel welcome and check in!
We had a great dinner. Great staff and great food!
Great neighborhood spot!
We went for my girlfriend’s birthday and it was great. The food was delicious, the people were friendly and it was beautiful. Even my 13 month old son enjoyed it to a point where he was literally ripping the tacos off of my plate. If you want a great experience go check it out!
I think there was only one waitress in the whole restaurant. Took a really long time to order anything. Couldn’t even ask for side of sour cream because waitress didn’t come over. We were there over 2 hours for 2 apps and food.
Brunch was delicious and servers were friendly. Great place for drinks!
The food was delicious. Good sized portions. The only complaint was both mine and my wife’s dishes could’ve been hotter. They weren’t cold but felt like they sat for a few minutes too long.
Beyond that, everything about the experience was great including the bar manager who talked about tequila with us and helped educate us in time for a national Margarita day.
Our server was lovely and very efficient. We were a party of 4 and we had an order of guacamole which we enjoyed it so much that we had to order another. The cauliflower tacos were superb and the margaritas were tangy and dry not sweet and syrupy. Overall we had a fabulous time and wonderful experience.
Amazing meal and amazing margs. One of, if not thee, best Mexican food spot in the city.
SO GOOD! Service was great and so were the margaritas! The brisket topped nachos are a must
Delicious food and margaritas! Also, very friendly staff.
The Nachos (vegetarian) were loaded and delicious. Their main course as well as the toasts were tasty and filling. The drinks were well made too.
My wife and I are so happy this restaurant has survived COVID. The food here is always amazing, the servers are always so sweet and knowledgeable about the menu, they are careful with COVID precautions, and they always make our special occasions just a little more special. You must try the bestia margarita with passion fruit flavor...it’s our new favorite!
Absolutely love the tacos here. Reminds me a lot of El Vez, honestly. The yucca fries and the plantains are excellent! Will definitely be back.
Food was amazing! Drinks were really great too and I loved the environment.
Great food and service!!! Perfect local neighborhood spot
Friendly service, large menu, and delicious margaritas! We were satisfied with drinks, apps, and main course.
