What a great place! We are adding it to the rotation. The service was exceptional. They overheard it was my birthday and surprised us with a dessert and shot! What a fun gem!!

I had heard great things about Margarita’s Cafe and had been wanting to go for a long time. I truly enjoyed my time there! The mango margarita was delicious! We had gotten fajitas and they were very fresh and tasty. Our waiter was very friendly as well. The mariachi band was a fun touch! When the band isn’t playing they are playing music so it is a lively place. Also the decor was cute!

Last min reservation as the venue we were looking at (Cuban) had no availability. Margaritas appears to be a great place for a group of friends/family looking to have an energetic evening, not so much for a family with teens and kids just wanting a nice dinner. Booked table for 8:30 however they were so busy there wasn't even a host/hostess, stood around for some time before grabbing a waiter and waitress to ask about getting seated. After 15 mins, they had to slide a group of 2 down already dining to seat our group of 5, right at the entrance and into the aisle. The staff really tried, but they did seem unorganized with a waitress asking if anyone had take our order - seems like there's no assigned tables. Had 2 older mariachis singing Happy B'day, serenading tables.. that was entertaining though our kid/teens were embarassed.
Drinks, appetizers, and entrees were fair to good (steak and chops were overcooked), dessert was much better though I doubt it was made in house - was just happy to have dinner that late. Would I revisit - prob just as a couple looking for a lively place for drinks, but 1st experience left some to be desired

The food must be good because it was packed and the line was out the door. Unfortunately they took too many reservations on a Saturday night. We had 8:00 reservation, waited 45 minutes outside and then decided to go down the street to Sangria. At 8:55, they called and said our table was ready but it was too late.

I made a reservation here for a party of 3 and it was not honored. I even called ahead of time to confirm and they said there was a table available for me. But when I got there, there were no tables and they didn’t seem to care that I had made the reservation. In fact they pretended that they didn’t have the reservation even though I had called to confirm. They also must have known about my reservation because they verified that I showed up in OpenTable. There was at least a 20 minute wait for a table and the restaurant does not have spacious waiting room so I had to leave which was a disappointment because I enjoy the food there and have been looking forward to a fun dinner. Luckily there are nice restaurants right across the street that could accommodate us last minute.

I love this restaurant. I always enjoy the food. I gave the food 3 stars because I didn’t like my dinner. I ordered the steak and shrimp tacos. The steak didn’t taste like real steak and it wasn’t seasoned. The shrimp were very small with no taste. The guacamole was delicious. This was my first time at this restaurant and I didn’t like the food. I would advise to go and try the food, it’s usually very good. Just don’t get the tacos.

Always a delicious meal and drinks are dependably strong. We were seated immediately with reservation. Mariachi band was a fun addition for Valentine's Day, they sang a romantic song for our anniversary.

They served me undercooked chicken and I got a stomach bug from it. I could've took further action but I dont want to get anyone in trouble. I just expected better because I had a good experience the first time I came here.

Such a cute place. Ended up going for a valentines day lunch and it was great! The ambiance was so adorable and decorated for valentines, but looked like it would have a good vibe on other night. Food was super delicious and the drinks were perfect! Service was also great and attentive. Definitely recommend this place for some yummy margaritas and food!

While I understand restaurants are under a lot of pressure in different circumstances these days. The way they handled or did not handle our reservation was unacceptable. We arrived at 8:05 and 8:15 reservation and the host advised me I still had 10 minutes. At 8:35 I went back to him to ask for an update and he acted like he had no idea who I was. He said it would be a few minutes. At 8:55 I went back to him again and then raised much concern. He pointed out that there weren't available tables as I could see and never once apologized. I then ask for the manager,which I hate to do but the host was rude and unapologetic. The manager said we be seated in 2 minutes and he would take care of us. We sat about 10 minutes later and were rushed out of 10 and never saw the manager again. Overall the food was good but the customer service was nonexistent.

Don’t bother making a reservation. Waited 45+ mins and watched people that arrived after us with no reservation get seated before us. Then because if covid we got rushed because by the time we got seated for our 8:15 reservation it was past 9 o’clock. Liked the food but would rather go elsewhere

Waited over 40 minutes outside in the cold even though we had a reservation. This restaurant doesn’t seem to take the reservation policy seriously. The front end host was pretty rude when we would periodically ask if our reserved table was ready.

This place scams patrons by taking reservations that they cant honor. My 17 year old daughter and her 17 yr old friend waited for an hour, and then they had the nerve to try and cinvince them to sit the 2 minors at the bar. My daughter refused because she's only 17. They FINALLY crammed her into a table. No social distancing whatsoever. Food ok and definitely not worth being treated like that.

While the food is fair the service and wait time was extremely terrible this time. We had a 7:45 reservation, got there by 7:40 and didn’t get seated till 8:40. Once seated, our orders were messed up and they forgot some of our items until we got the check. I was very disappointed

The food and drinks were all amazing, but make sure to request extra tequila in your margarita if you like it strong or otherwise it’s pretty weak. My server, Luis, was excellent. We will definitely be returning.
