A TODA MADRE born as consequence of Mexican Food has been evolving in the last decade, people is tired to eat a huge portions of rice, beans and a bunch of tortillas, We decided to show our culture through the food but in different way, not compromising the flavors and roots, we created a simple menu, every single taco has their own components , ingredients and explosion of flavors, at the same time, we use premium steaks to make tacos, burritos, quesadillas and bowls. We like rice and beans of course!, but for now it is time to show our food in a different presentation and healthy way.

    Can’t really say how the food was. We were seated for 20 min and not one person came to our table to service us. Sucks bc I was really excited to try this place and we were celebrating and that whole experience just totally ruined the whole experience and night. There were so many employees standing around and dancing and they all saw us leave and didn’t even ask why, they just watched us walk out.

    Enjoyed dinner. Although, some dishes can be too pricey. Rib eye with lobster $91. Molcajetes $45-$49. Everything else is more reasonable (20-30). We took advantage of happy hour drinks. Birthday celebration in a large group. Cool birthday shot show. Aside from the 20% service charge, we where charged another $28 “subcharge.” Not sure if I would be back.

    Terrible service from staff. Nobody smiles, everyone that works there walks around with a frown. No one greets you with a smile; which is odd because usually that’s the opposite at a restaurant. The food was expensive for what I ordered. Nothing special about this place, and I wouldn’t recommend to anyone or come back.

    Expected better Quality overall. The price is overrated and prices are high for the type of establishment. The seating is janky and food presentation same. $16 bucks for a Flan 😆 . You're better off going else where

    We completely regret going here and totally ruined our Mother’s Day. We were completely disappointed and we were not expecting this type of scenario/environment. This place promotes itself as a family restaurant and it was far from it. The music level was extreme with a bass you could feel on your feet and chest. The tables shook and was impossible to talk without yelling. The sound system they have was more for a club type setting. There was tv’s playing reggaetón and perro music videos where all they show is girls in bikinis. Whistles and yelling while people taking shots. Very inappropriate for children. I had a 10 yr old, 5 yr old, and 7 month old. Part of my party had to leave because they refused to keep the baby at that noise level and environment. It was noon and this place felt like 2am inside a club. We were sat under a speaker. After asking to be moved and to lower the music several times they kept refusing. Our waiter was extremely nice and he tried helping us as much as he could but it seemed as if he had his hands tied because management wouldn’t let him move us or lower the music. He tried doing the best he could. Eventually a man in management walks towards the speaker and pulls the plug this made us feel even more unwanted in this place. We decided to just finish our appetizers and leave. We wanted a nice brunch in a family type restaurant. I would have never made reservations here if somewhere in the description was the noise level and club like environment description. This was not the environment we expected and we were very disappointed.

    The wait to get drinks or service was very long…the food was great, and once we did get service it was fair. It is loud. They forgot to bring out one dish, and brought two of the other. Willing to try it again because the food was great, but hoping the service gets better. ThAt is the only drawback…

    Save yourself and go somewhere else! This place will 100% give you sensory overload. The music is blasting, they have tv’s with music videos that do not match what the dj is playing, they have flashing lights everywhere as well as dj lights, there will be whistles blasting in your ear & more! I have gone to restaurants where all this occurs but not to such extreme level to where it literally gives you anxiety. Service is also bad. For example, we asked for the bill and our server was chatting it up with his coworkers, standing around, until we made eye contact & he scrambled to get it .. you can tell he had simply forgotten we had asked for it. We would have left but we wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt, however we did see others get up & leave.. we should have done the same!

    Check your bill and ask about their “surcharge”. They’re charging 5% of your bill to pay with your card… We paid in cash and asked her to remove the charge - she wasn’t too amused and neither were we. I wonder had we not looked at the bill in detail and paid in cash, would the total have been different? Would we have gotten our “surcharge” change back due to over payment?? Kind of sneaky if you ask me.

    The food was pretty good -- they are definitely trying to go beyond standard American style Mexican food and get to something more authentic. My guess is that it will get better with time. The service was friendly and attentive, but pretty confused. They got a number of orders wrong and it took a while to straighten everything out. It's very noisy and feels more like a bar than a restaurant -- whistles blowing and sparklers (no kidding) every time somebody orders the menu's flight of tequila shots. Definitely a young people's place and, in fairness, I am not a young person! I wouldn't recommend it to people my age, but judging by how busy it was, young people love it.

    I was really excited to come here and was a bit disappointed. The ambiance was ok but maybe it was because we were seated outside in the corner away from everyone so we felt left out. The food was not very good and it was ridiculously over priced for what it was. I was not happy with that. Drinks were ok, they looked so much better on IG so it was a bit disappointing. The only awesome thing was our server, he was super nice and friendly. He was very accommodating and kept checking in on us. I don’t think I would come back.

    Was excited to try it after seeing a video on tik tok but left disappointed. Needed more waitresses, wing appetizer arrived cold and over all service could use improvement. Not sure if it was the owners who kept filming on their phones but maybe should have stepped in and helped the waitress. Overpriced.

    Had an overall poor experience at this restaurant, due to the service and food quality. We had two servers, one who was very friendly and the other who ran food to our table. The food runner had less than a positive attitude when it came to us asking questions about the menu, she seemed annoyed with every question that was asked. The food was way overpriced considering the portion size and overall taste. Would not come back there are better Mexican restaurants in LA.

    Food was decent but not great and the drinks were more like juice, they were also way over priced. We had a couple drinks and I’m a light weight I didn’t feel a thing neither did the rest of my group with the various drinks we ordered. Service was mediocre. Overall go here for pictures but that’s about it you can find better drinks, food, service, ambiance and decor at other places. Overall would not return or recommend to anyone else, I just came here cuz it was hyped up on Instagram. Also, this place is not original. It’s a rip off of a better restaurant located in Rancho Cucamonga and Beverly Hills.

    20 minutes after ordering coffee and a mimosa, no one checked on us or bothered to run our drinks. My only choice was to walk out. Not coming back for that type of service. I ended up at kalaveras down the street for faster and friendlier service.
