Las Margaritas Ratings and Reviews

This wasn't our best experience and we truly are long time customers. We've been eating house nachos since the mid 80's, that's how far back we go.
When we arrived, we were placed right near the front door, and froze every time the door opened and closed. We lived with that, because it was fairly busy. Then they couldn't do the salad they have done for me in the past (for years!) - apparently the chef had never heard of it, yet, I had it within the past 6 months. The appies and entrees all arrived at the same time, so the table was jam packed. My appie (house nachos) wasn't hot, and the salad I got instead of what I wanted wasn't very good, so I didn't eat it. The waiter didn't ask if a) it could be packed up, or b) was everything okay, since I hardly touched it. He just took it away without acknowledging anything.
My pina colada was good, so I guess there's that... :)

Loved the high quality chicken and generous portion used in the fajitas and enchiladas. The mole sauce was excellent, as were the margaritas.
The fajitas though could be improved by actually grilling them on the skillet in which they were brought. They weren't hot and sizzling on the iron skillet, but rather placed on there and way too clean. It looked and tasted like they were just microwaved or broiled and then placed on the skillet. Very odd.

Don't know why they cannot take more than 4 people reservation using open table. When we got there we had to wait for a table even though there were empty tables. I think it might have been that the servers don't start work until 5pm. We have been here so many times over the past 15 years because it is a neighborhood go to dinner place. Finally they have given us 2 baskets of salsa chips without charging for the second basket. I always thought it was unfair that a table of 4 gets 1 basket of salsa chips when a table of 2 gets 1 basket of salsa chips. So the times I had to pay for the extra basket I felt ripped off. Service was great because the waitress came by to fill up the water when she had time.

The evening was nice for a birthday. The chicken dishes were good but the fish tacos were dry and uninspired. I wish I had requested a different dish but as it was a special occasion I didn't want to mar the mood.

Las Margaritas was a great place for a large group of us to meet. The staff were very accommodating as we wanted our group to sit together, so they moved tables together. The service was good and quick and our dinners came at the same time and were hot. Definitely recommend it.

Good food, however a bit pricey for mostly rice and beans when choosing vegetarian dishes. Table service was good, however server merely brought us the bill and did not ask if we wanted more drinks or dessert. I booked the table for three of us through Open Table for one of only two times indicated as available, however on arrival and throughout our meal there were many empty tables. I'm confused about the scarcity of free tables indicated when I reserved mine.

What we had was well prepared and tasty; ample portions; good service. What is unfortunately missing in essentially all Vancouver Mexican restaurants is more grilled meats, fresh fish and dishes with vegetables other than tomatoes and beans.
busy but great atmosphere
We love a quick mexican lunch at Las Margaritas. The value is good and the atmosphere is great, lots of photographs, posters and scenery on the walls to give the place a more authentic ambience. Very popular, especially in the summer, so book ahead.
Bland food, Bad service.
I came here with my family for dine-out. Our appetizers were pretty good, and the margaritas we ordered were quite nice. However, the entrees (I had the chicken enchiladas) were extremely bland and just not appetizing at all, i couldn't finish my plate as i was so put off. This is not authentic mexican food. To top off this bad experience, our server seemed like she didn't want to serve us at all. We gave her no reason to be rude, as we made no complaints, she however would walk away before i finished asking for something (hot water, ordering a drink) and I would have to wait til she came back to finish what I was saying. It was busy, but when she was at the table next to us she was definitely not as rude.
If youre looking for good food, avoid this place. Come for margaritas, without the service.
