    Not bad for an east coast Mexican restaurant. The shrimp tacos were good, the carne asada tacos were ok, I didn’t like the marinade but the salsa that came with it was good. The chips and salsa though, it had no flavor or spice which was disappointing. The casa margarita, don’t get it.
    La SandiaResponded on 26 February 2024
    Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the shrimp tacos, and we appreciate your comments about the carne asada marinade and our casa margarita.

    We arrived for a 5pm "pre-movie" reservation and entered a nearly empty restaurant, only to be guided to a two-topper in the back of the restaurant next to the kitchen door. We asked for a different table, and the second choice was not much better. Finally we requested to be seated on the patio which was accommodated. We understand it was Valentine's day; however, a more appropriate table should have been offered in an empty restaurant. By the time we finished dining, the restaurant was still nearly empty. We enjoy La Sandia but just wanted to point out this seating miss.
    La SandiaResponded on 4 March 2024
    We're grateful for your feedback. We apologize if the seating arrangements during your last visit did not meet your expectations, especially considering the special occasion of Valentine's Day. It's pleasing to hear that our team was able to accommodate your request to be seated on the patio and that you were able to enjoy your "pre-movie" dinner in the end. However, we acknowledge this could have been handled more gracefully from the start. Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention and for your continued patronage. We look forward to welcoming you back to La Sandia soon and hope you’ll find your next visit much more to your liking!

    We had a dinner reservation for 7:45 but they were able to seat us early, which was nice. We were a party of 7 and the table given to us was a little wonky. The one end had little leaf extensions on the table, which made eating on it a little precarious. The server did a lot of reaching over with our drinks and food, instead of walking around to the other side, which we didn’t like. The food itself was good. The drinks seemed a little watered down. Overall, it was okay, but we are not in a rush to go back.
    La SandiaResponded on 14 February 2024
    Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We're glad to hear we could accommodate you before your reservation time and hope you found your early seating convenient. We apologize for any discomfort caused by the table. Rest assured, we're looking into the issue with the wonky table to ensure that all of our guests have a comfortable dining experience. We've addressed the importance of attentive serving practices with our staff to prevent reaching over when attending to our guests. We're happy to hear that you enjoyed the food. As for the drinks, we'll pass on your comments to our bar team to assess your concerns. Our goal is always to provide an experience that makes our guests eager to return, and we hope to have the opportunity to deliver a more enhanced experience for your next visit!

    Food was just okay. I had the fajitas, which had chimichurri on top (not necessary for fajitas) no cheese side (which should have been instead of chinichurri) provided no steak knife as well. so it was a struggle cutting the fajita. My partner compared his quesadillas to baja fresh. Our server was great.

    It was an ok Mexican restaurant. The chips and salsa were great. The waiter was less than enthused when wet first sat down but he warmed up after awhile. The chicken tacos were full of meat and veggies. But nothing really stood out.

    Hi Pankaj! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the food and service during your visit.

    Great food. Service was a bit slow especially considering how not crowded the restaurant was but I suspect that was from understaffing rather than a bad service. The first margaritas our group ordered were tasty but heavy on ice in a low ball glass. The 2nd round of margaritas was literally all ice to the brim of the cup and there was absurdly little drink in the glass. For $13 a pop that was a big rip off. The guac, salsa and chips and everyone’s meals were really delicious though!!
    La SandiaResponded on 1 January 2024
    Thank you for choosing to dine at La Sandia! We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the food and flavor of our margaritas. We apologize for any delay in service and also appreciate your feedback on the ice ratio in the drinks. We will review this with our team to ensure consistency in each glass. Your kind words about our guacamole, salsa, and meals are much appreciated! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience and we hope to see you again soon.

    It wasn't good at all. Service was below average. The server wouldn't even come back to see if we needed anything. I had to get up and get them back for chips/salsa. Food was full of salt.

    Food was okay. Hangar steak tacos were surprisingly greasy. We went with another couple and they shared an order, they received their dinner about 10 minutes before us. They started eating and were almost done before ours arrived. I saw our server look at our table with a concerned look when she saw that half the table was eating and there was nothing on the other side of the table. I'm thinking that our dinners were sitting on the counter waiting to be delivered because they were barely warm when we got them. The music was SO LOUD even though we asked to sit in the "outer" area. We had to shout to each other to be heard. It was louder than you would get at a loud nightclub. Won't be back. There are Mexican restaurants with much better food for less out there.

    We would like to apologize for the delay in your food and for the way it was handled with your server. We strive to get food out promptly and correctly, and clearly we did not do that on your visit. It is never our intention to leave a guest feeling dissatisfied or disappointed. We hope that you will give us another chance in the future so that we can show you what a great experience La Sandia can be.

    It was okay. Waiter was pushy and inpatient. Food had no taste what so ever . No salt/pepper. Felt uncomfortable like we were being watched to make sure we don’t leave without paying for our food.
    La SandiaResponded on 1 June 2023
    We understand that food preferences differ among individuals and your opinion matters. At La Sandia, our dishes are made with fresh ingredients, special blends of unique spices and seasonings, that capture the flavor profile of classic Mexican flavors. Rest assured, our staff treats each guest with respect and kindness so it was not our intention at all to make you feel uncomfortable. We hope you reconsider and give us another opportunity to serve you.

    The service was exceptionally slow and when my order came out it was wrong. I tried this restaurant out based on reviews I saw and decided to give it a try. It did not live up to the hype.
