We love Catina Feliz. As usual, our food was delicious - fresh, bursting with flavor, excellent presentation. Our server, Nick, was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. Cantina Feliz never disappoints and we appreciate that! P.S. We would love to see outdoor seating.

Good: We come here because we like the flavors. Everyone is polite.

Bad: Too many young people think they just went to hospitality school. Please, you are not that important yet and you are hired to take care of customer.

Our waitress was fine, smile, and was trying. More professional staff is needed and monitor the table for the customer needs. Stop hiding in the back room.

We will come back but please remember there are other places customers can also go.

This was our 1st time out in 2 years because it’s so hard for us to find child care. I don’t know if this is now industry standard across the board from being short staffed, but it was very disappointing. The Margs were good and I enjoyed the time out with my husband, but it took 25 minutes to get guacamole and 60 minutes to get tacos at 8:15/8:30 at night. The food was so physically hot it took forever to be able to tolerate eating it, the outer edges were burned, and it was also so spicy I could not taste what was even in the food and I like spicy food. There was also very little meat in my short rib enchilada. TBH honest I was so hungry at that point I couldn’t wait for the food to cool down. The plantains were cold and the chicken in the tacos was room temperature at best and dry. The bartenders were barely attentive. We were never really checked on and always had to initiate communication. The bar was far from packed with patrons. We also were we never offered nor provided with water and had to ask for silverware. It’s a shame because we have gotten take away from here several times and enjoyed. It’s really hard for my husband and I to get out of the house, so this was extra disappointing.

The Cantina is always busy on Friday nights, but that’s what makes it fun! The food is still cooked to order and worth the wait.

I love Cantina Feliz, but they are definitely feeling the effects of a lack of available workers. The staff was friendly, but clearly stretched thin. The food was as good as always, but everything took a very long time. I’ll definitely go back, but guess this is how it’s going to be in restaurants for the time-being.

Food came out cold and then we were told it would be back out within 5 minutes. 25 minutes later it came out again and it was cold my dish and the appetizer were freezing cold again. Very disappointed

We’ve eaten here many times. Always loved the food. This time the food was bland. Will most likely cross this place off our list. Not sure if COVID had something to do with it, but it wasn’t good.

I went before and the food was good. Perhaps it was what I ordered. Last night it was just ok. The service was rushed, likely because we came closer to closing, but I didn't appreciate that. The server seemed nice. Just rushed. The blueberry margarita for the night was terrible. Avoid at all cost. The first time I went the mango margarita was good.

When we asked to change our table, the server was most gracious. The Santana margaritas were smooth and generously sized, perfectly paired with our food and the summer evening. Three of our group had the special which was a Surf and Turf featuring flank steak and shrimp moderately and deliciously spiced with accompaniments like spring onion and refried beans. The tuna tacos and shrimp ceviche were pleasers. Guacamole and chips were food and everyone especially liked the house salsa-great smoky taste. Our server continued to do an outstanding job throughout the meal. The other members of the staff were also pleasant and helpful. Cantina Feliz was one of our go-to restaurants for a long time but we hadn’t been there since before Covid. We were so pleased to find that the service and the food were as good or better than ever.

We love Cantina Feliz! Everyone works hard and hustles - from the top down. Though the food is prompt, it is paced well and we never feel rushed. Thank you for a consistently great dinner

Upscale Mexican, nice presentation, delicious, and excellent service. Margaritas are delicious. They are also very accommodating to food allergies- the server told me they go through allergy training regularly. We had a great experience.

Delicious and always fresh cuisine from Cantina Feliz. The fresh guacamole is a must! The chips are served fresh and arrive hot on the table. Mmm delicious! While you are at it add a couple of Patron margaritas as they are awesome with a generous dose of tequila. Had the grilled shrimp tacos which were fabulous. Shrimp was cooked to perfection and paired with a side of street corn off the cob. It's nice that they offer it up in two ways on or off the cob. If you haven't tried Cantina Feliz, you need to put this one on your list. We've been coming here for years (including many take outs during covid). They never let you down.

The food here was good but the service was terrible. Our waitress was absent until she wanted us out. Tried to take plates away before we were done and rushed only to give us the check. The whole place was cleared out by 9pm on a Friday night.
Definitely will not go back.
