We come through Bakersfield every few years. We found this place in 2011 and loved it, and discovered that it had gone down in 2014. I'm happy to report that it is even better than it was in 2011, possibly a change of management or a big overhaul (it's clear the restaurant has been remodeled, and some of the dishes... More

I was counting on the restaurant feel of no stress and as soon as I arrived carrying the 1/2 sheet cake I was advised that room was not ready, which was suppose to be 1hour before party so we could decorate ,I felt that staff was very unprofessional and unapologetic. Finally went to room 30 to 35 minutes later. The... More

Went in to have dinner, was my first time here my companion had been here a few times and really likes it. We each had Enchiladas, I had the Suizas she had the Chili Verde, both were excellent. I gauge Mexican places by their beans and salsas and both are excellent at La Costa. Atmosphere is really cool. We didn’t... More

We were seated in a side room that had all Frida Kahlo pictures and paintings. I was overjoyed because I had actually toured her "Blue House" when I was in Mexico City last November. I recognized some of the paintings. The main reason that I had wanted to try La Costa Mariscos was to try the Aguachiles, which is my... More

We visit family in Bakersfield 3 or 4 times a year, and always seem to wind up here for dinner! Great margaritas, and Mexican seafood, and standard Mexican (except for some dumb reason they do not offer carnitas.--I complained, but to no avail) BUT--be prepared for a wait most any time. You can wait in the bar, if you're over... More

We always try and find a good Mexican restaurant on our road trips. This place was highly recommended by the staff at the Garden Hilton. The food was some of the greatest tasting and the atmosphere was fun. The margaritas were tasty and the service was outstanding. We will be back!!

We thought the old Ice House venue was quite special when we had lunch - great service & atmosphere along with terrific entrees made it memorable. We will definitely return when we are in the downtown area on business.

You can't go wrong with this place. There is a reason it can sometimes take a while to get seated. They only seat as many people as their kitchen can keep up with. This means, you won't be sitting at your table for 30 min waiting for service. Once you order, your meal will arrive very quickly. The food and... More
