Went here on a Friday night to meet up with friends ahead of a meeting the next day. They were very flexible with our uncertainty on numbers and worked with us in every way. They have a wide range of tequila's and Katie the "Tequila Goddess" was! and a great help for making great selections.

The La Hacienda is located in the beautiful Fairmont Hotel and is a fairly large restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating. We did not have a reservation and was put on the waiting list. The hostess said it would be about 45 minutes, but we only waited about 20 minutes. Once we were seated we received immediate service. We... More

Wow. Fantastic food and great service. Probably one of the best Latin meals I have ever had. The drinks were also fantastic. If you are in the area you must try this restaurant.

We came here for dinner on the recommendation of friends. The service was excellent but the food was variable. The starter of guacamole lacked any flavor (needed some salt and perhaps chilli) - the accompanying salsa helped a bit. The vegetarian main (summer harvest) was flavorful but came with a side of quinoa instead of the cheese mash on the... More

Visited with a group and we had a private room with a tequila tasting ! Three different kinds-- each with distinct flavors! Knowledgeable staff and friendly service! The salsa was so fresh and our meals were great-- seafood enchiladas, burritos and other Mexican inspired dishes were thoughtfully prepared and presented... everyone had a wonderful time ! Nice place with indoor... More

I ate on the patio and enjoyed the sunset. Appetizers and dinner were scrumptious. Make sure to order the specialty coffee after dinner. It's like "dinner and a show"!

The food was good and our server was very nice and personable. Maybe it is because I live in southern California, but I did not think the food was off the charts like I may have expected because of some of the other reviews that I read. It is probably a fun place to come with a few couples and... More
