I have to say that my dad is hard of hearing and he hates going out because he can never hear the conversation. Here even though it’s busy, it’s not LOUD with music and he enjoys it very much!! Thank you!! Service is phenomenal!!

They brought two of our dishes, and informed us that there was a kitchen mishap, but they were making new dishes for us. They also comped our drinks. The server and manager were both very accommodating.

Food was good as always, but server never checked back with us or else we'd have gotten another round of drinks. Wasn't even really that busy. Will still go back though.

I got the salmon taco which was $2 more than the regular Baja fish taco. I needed a special device to actually see the small sliver of salmon which was dwarfed by everything else. The same was even more true of the second taco which I had on Sunday. When you look at the Baja fish taco there is one piece that is relatively large or at least fills the taco pad. Sometimes you get two if each piece is small. The salmon looked like it was sliced by someone making lox or sushi. I probably could have looked through it as thinly sliced as it was. I won't order this again, especially for the price. When you order a seafood dish you are suppose to see the food.

We had a great experience. Enjoyed everything we ordered. Starting with the smoky flavor of the salsa and ending with scrumptious churros! Staff was friendly and very informative. Looking forward to returning.

Nachos were inedible. I like spicy food a lot, but neither of us could stomach more than a couple. I counted about 40 jalapeño slices.

Otherwise, the food took about 30-35 minutes from the time we ordered. I believe they used the extra time slicing and adding more jalapenos. We did appreciate that our server urged the kitchen along since she noticed the extended wait as well.

Margaritas were good, but expensive. We were a bit surprised that we were charged extra for ordering a blood orange margarita rather than just the standard frozen marg. Our fault for not asking, but wasn’t on the menu either from what we saw. Not a huge deal, but probably wouldn’t have ordered if we knew. They did come in handy to combat the nachos.

Everything seemed pretty much the same as pre-pandemic. The food was good, but I'd forgotten how utterly noisy it is by the windows. Wouldn't hurt them to put some type of noise dampener in there.

Our family of six went for Father’s Day. The food was pretty good my Hudson steak was not the best but he easily traded it in for a burrito which he enjoyed. My margarita was average. The atmosphere was nice and service was excellent

My family has been in love with Cantina Feliz since it first opened! The food & drinks have always been delicious and consistent. Recently however the menu has changed a bit and they don’t have the same upscale-type Mexican dishes that they used to feature. The menu seems smaller with fewer yummy choices. I know the covid pandemic has wreaked havoc on the restaurant industry and am SO happy that Cantina Feliz was able to survive, but the changes make me not as excited to go there. The newer menu choices like “burritos & bowls” are something more suited to Chipotle. (fried tortilla bowls? Not expected) The plate presentation is not as first class as it once was (for example, we always order the steak al carbon with rice instead of beans, and usually the rice/beans come one the side in a small bowl. This time it was piled on the plate but wasn’t “pretty”, it looked thrown on in an afterthought.). One of our steaks was underdone and they cooked it more AND took it off the bill, which was completely unexpected! That was above and beyond. I hope they are able to dig out of this rut and return to the amazing food they’ve always had!!

Their quality has definitely slipped. What was once a place for great margaritas and guacamole/chips left us greatly disappointed. Bitter margaritas, and the guacamole and salsa just didn’t stand out. Service was off too.
Hopefully they will at some point return to the great Mexican restaurant they were before 2020.

Creative margaritas complement well-prepared enchiladas and tacos that my family all agreed were delicious and freshly made. We split 3 desserts which also showed off the skill of the kitchen to come up with such interesting caramel, popcorn, and chocolate treats.

Our family had a fun Friday dinner at CF. My husband & I had dined here a couple of months ago & were disappointed, but it has much improved. Great margaritas, service & food, although we find the menu a little limited. We will return for drinks & tacos again

We have never been more disappointed!
This is the restaurant we have always come to celebrate every special occasion!!
We have been a very loyal customer since cantina felez first opened years ago!
I’m not sure what’s going on???
Over the years the Margarita has been outstanding! One of the main reason we come here !!!!
The house Margarita we had yesterday taste like limeade & I doubt there was any tequila in our drinks. My husband paid more to have an upgraded Margarita & that wasn’t good either.
We Alway get the guacamole because it’s so delicious & fresh ... Not yesterday.. the lime was so over powering, the waitress took it back to the kitchen & even the cook / chief said it has too much lime !
Sad to see that had removed some of our favorites things from the menu, like the shrimp appetizer & the black bass..
So we ordered the shrimp tacos.
Yet Another Disappointment !
They arrived at our table wet & soggy !
UGH !! I’m Not Sure what’s going on, with this business, but it is going down hill FAST !!
This is far from what we have ever experienced when coming to this restaurant for many years.
Sadly ... we will not be returning!!!!

We went for an early dinner and enjoyed being one of two couples in the room. By the time we left it was getting quite busy. My husband and I both had different tacos and swapped. We thought it would be ideal if they offered a taco sampler. Had not been here before and could see going back with friends.
