Mojave

$30 and under
Mexican / Southwestern
In this adobe hacienda from the Mojave desert, the décor is subdued and soothing. Warm cream color walls, dark wood floors and furniture allow one to focus on the artistic design of the room, with three separate pitched ceilings made from spruce and fir strategically placed with hidden lighting on the walls. When evening falls, the flickering glow of candles adds comfortable warmth to the already pleasant ambiance. The food is Southwestern with, of course, an authentic Mexican flare.

There was a lot papers and other stuff on the floor and seat. Like they did not even bother to broom. Empanadas were great, tacos was horrible. No taste at all. Won’t come back. Service was poor, it was the hostess that took our order after I told server to give me couple minutes and she was no where to be found when we were ready.

It was my birthday and the waiter gave us the wrong food at first also my friend asked him to sing me a happy birthday and he took more than an hour to even do that which is why I ended up leaving so late plus he forgot to even give us our check so we waited so long for that it was over all not a good experience and I don’t even write bad reviews but I was annoyed that my friend told him multiple times to even get me my desert.

I have been wanting on visiting Mojave ever since before COVID started we finally went for brunch always great to listen to music early in the day , we all need this from out unfortunate experience from the past pandemic year . What caught my attention was the drink posted online called sangrita and the food looks scrumptious! And behold it was outstanding the food for brunch was yummy the drink was yummy and the guacamole with chips was yummy . I will def def def visit again. The waiter Jorge was so attentive and was so nice 👍🏼.
Love this place cannot wait for the summer to enjoy eating outside . I’ll also try dinner but I only read for brunch the restaurant plays music which I need in today’s world .

We had a fabulous time at Mojave. Attentive service, fabulous food, and a safe, clean, and quiet environment (We were in the back). The guacamole and chips were so good we ordered another, the rice that came with the tacos was some of the best I've had, and the drinks were great! Will absolutely be returning.

first time here and it was much nicer on the inside than the outside. food was pretty consistent with the cuisine that it has and was tasty and prepared well. it got a bit busy near the end but it was managable.

The staff at Mojave were extremely accommodating to us as a group, they were so friendly and polite. Chloe, the hostess really helped us out as we were originally two bookings who merged to one and she was just so helpful and nice about it. We were there for Sunday brunch , the DJ provided a great energy and party atmosphere. The food was all very tasty with a great presentation. The unlimited brunch drinks is a great deal and the staff were so attentive and helpful with any specific requests or questions. Would defiantly recommend this spot!

Everything was good until I waiter kept forgetting about us . Drinks were better than my entree . The steak nachos were amazing . They definitely need to be a lil more heavy handed on the seasoning . All around it was cool

Mojave is the hidden gem of Astoria. Always serving the best food and drinks. The Mojave wings and guac are our go-to apps. We had the steak and shrimp tacos. Everything was delicious.
Large frozen margarita is a must.

I've been to Mojave many times before. They have great service and the waiters are very nice. My friend and I went while it was still breakfast, but we wanted tacos. The server we had asked the chef and they made it for us. Amazing service and the food is great.

We got there early for our reservation we were asked if we wanted backyard seating or seating in the front , we asked for backyard. Not once did the worker let us know there was a private event happening in the back. We got back there it was super loud , no one came to ask us what we wanted to eat or drink. We decided to just leave . I just felt like it was poor customer service and if you knew you would have a large party let us know or don’t offer the table

It was cold, heat lamps would’ve come in handy. The service was slow but it wasn’t bothersome because I was in the good company of my friends. The Mexican corn was delicious as was the Sangrita! :)
