    I had a reservation set for 8:30pm. I arrived at 8:20 and asked if my party could be seated. The host told us to wait until 8:30 to be seated so we waited. We did not get seated at 8:30 instead we waited for about 30 minutes. Whats the point of having a reservation if it’s not going to be acknowledged. To add to our frustration, upon finally being seated, I was served raw chicken. DISGUSTING. I asked the waiter if I could get something else from the menu because I did not want to eat chicken anymore. She said no, instead they offered to remake it even when I said I didn’t want to eat that anymore. We told the waiter we were not paying for the chicken dish and she told us we had to speak to the manager. We asked to speak to the manger but he was too afraid to even confront us. Instead he sent the waitress to tell us he couldn’t remove a 27$ dish. We waited for him come out and speak to us. Once he came out he didn’t apologize and tried saying because they remade the chicken we had to pay for it. HORRIBLE experience. The service sucks save your money and go somewhere else instead.

    Got to the restaurant and we were the only ones there. The music was DEAFENING. And the pink disco lights just silly. Is it a bar? Is it a disco? Is it a restaurant? …on Sunday at 5pm? DON’T let them bring you bottled water! Little tiny plastic bottles are 6 bucks a pop. And the food… well, seriously underwhelming. I ordered enchiladas con mole. The mole was actually very good BUT the tortillas were cold and stale AND the chicken was dry and barely warm. No mas gracias.

    El lugar es muy bonito , se siente un ambiente agradable . Pero el servicio del mesero estuvo muy lento con las entradas se demoraba para traer hasta el agua y las entradas ya se colocaban frías. Luego ya le dijimos a la asistente del mesero y ella ayudó a mejorar el servicio. De igual manera si recomiendo el lugar la comida deliciosa , la música estuvo buena y celebración súper chévere a los cumpleañeros !!

    Monday night. Only 4 or so tables! So not busy! Melvin is the hostess with theeeeee mostest! I cannot stress how lovely of an experience we had thanks to Melvin’s passion for an elevated fine dining experience! Music was moderate compared to BH Location, so it was perfect & still able to hold conversation! The wild caught butterfly shrimp paired with the ribeye was the best flavor palette hands down!!! Margaritas are 2 for 1 on Mondays! Pineapple, hibiscus, mango were so good I almost forgot there was tequila! ☺️🥳 The aesthetic & ambiance of this DTLA location is unmatched!!!! Melvin deserves the world, you can’t dine without him! <3

    Our service for my birthday dinner was terrible. It felt like my girlfriend and I were treated different from the time we sat down. We weren’t greeted by our waitress. She wouldn’t make eye contact with us, she kept looking to the far corner of the room. When asking questions we were given very dry answers. When asked how the birthday festivities work we were told it’d be way too expensive.

    The restaurant was way too loud for dinner conversation. Instead of a Sunday evening dinner, it was more like Friday night at a Hollywood club. The food was fine - average, but for $200 for 2 people I would have expected way better. We were charged $12 for two small plastic bottles of water that we did not ask for. Ordered 1 appetizer to share and 2 main dishes. 1 main dish came out first, then 5 minutes later the appetizer, then 5 minutes after that the second main dish. Lastly, asked the waitress for a receipt when we paid, but we never received it. The table side margaritas were nice, but other than that, I was not happy with the overall experience.

    This was by far the worse reservation and experience I have ever had. We had reservations for 715pm arrived at 7 checked in. We were walked outside on the patio where it was raining and we refused to dine outside. They sat us at the bar and told us it would be 30 mins for our table for 4. We waited almost 2 hours to be seated. We had to flag down a waiter to try to place an order and were told they were behind and they had two tables ahead of us before we could even place a drink order. 40 mins after we were seated someone came and took our complete order. Food came within 30 mins, and was cold. One of the 6 dishes were ordered was warm. They told us they don’t give out any free water but had to purchase bottled water. Each meal was missing something, like tortillas, or silverware for dining. When the bill came, the waiter miscalculated our total and charged us three different times. After the third transaction which then prompted fraud at our banks, we paid cash. After paying cash the waitress returned missing more than 12 dollars of our money which then prompted us to just get up and leave. I’ve been to other mama por dios locations and have never received this type of service. The manager was apologetic but also was obviously very stressed and understaffed. This location was the worst dining experience we have ever had. Not only was the restaurant not very up to par but the bathrooms were disgusting and filthy, no air dryers worked, no hand paper towels and there was mud all over the floors from the rain outside. Not to mention parking. No validation and valet was $25. Being this was a business meeting, it was an embarrassment to the city to experience such horrible service. We were very disappointed and will never be returning. I felt it was necessary to leave a review because of the amount of money that was spent and the amount of time and effort that was wasted to experience such a bad evening at this location. Save your money and go to Mama por dios in WEHO

    Decent food, but hardly a dining atmosphere on a Tuesday evening. Club-level loud music at 7:30. Wait staff was good, but overwhelmed to the point we didn't see them for more than 30 minutes while "doing birthdays."

    Made reservations for what Open Table gave me availability for (options were 9pm, 9:15pm, 9:30pm) I picked 9:15pm. I arrived to my wedding anniversary dinner reservations the host tells me there must have been an error, but they wouldn’t take reservations for that time. He said he recommended I went somewhere else to eat. I said well it’s late now and I don’t have many options so I would place the order quick for my food. He gave me a menu didn’t sit me so I had to ask you please be seated to a table. He said I had 10 minutes to order everything I wanted. Then 10 minutes passed and we still hadn’t met our server. I had to get up and find the host again who said server will be with us shortly. After that, we ordered and food was brought quickly, service was good and dinner was delicious. We just had a very rushed anniversary dinner and wish they would’ve treated us better being that it wasn’t my fault the system had an error.

    Ambiance was nice, food and drinks were good and music was great. Service was poor, the wait staff were clueless. Our waitress was poorly trained, she didn’t know anything about the menu, couldn’t give recommendations on meals, and didn’t even pour the water into our glasses, just left the bottles on the table and went to help someone else. Never came to check on us. She barely spoke to us.

    The place is very nice and the food is good but if you're looking for a place to have a nice conversation with a date or friends, this is definitely not the place to go. I went with my friends to catch up after being away for a couple of months and we had to literally scream at each other cause the music was too loud. It seemed like we were at a night club, people celebrate a lot of birthdays there and every 5-10 minutes the music would be even louder because of the airplane shots they offer. I did enjoy the drinks but not the conversation with my friends due to the loudness! I

    I purposely had reservations at 8:30pm I wasn’t seated until 9:30. People kept coming in and out. Apparently the seating for groups over 2 was limited and because whoever was already seated they had 2 hours max per table. Definitely something that should be disclosed upon making reservations. Food didn’t show up to our tables until 10:30. Literally left at 11:30. Really bad first experience.

    Way too expensive for what it is. You’re paying for the luxury not the food. Plus the charge a service fee of 20%. Ridiculous!.

    This was my first time going to the LA location. The food I wanted to eat was not on the menu. And our waitress did not come to check up on us until it was time for the check. The food was good but the service was not that great.
