Baja Cantina - Carmel
I love the atmosphere here. The wait staff are always great!
Server was very welcoming and attentive. The food was great.
Amazing staff, food, and location! A must go place for anyone visiting Carmel.
Excellent Mexican cuisine with fresh not packaged ingredients. Homemade tortilla chips, generous size drinks and excellent service.
Great service and ambiance. Bring your own salsa as theirs is often too hot to eat. Great chips and guacamole!
We’ve been eating here since it opened. Won’t be going back for a long time if ever. Waiter brought drinks and never came back. Had to flag him down to get another and check on food order as we had been waiting for over 30 mins. He never checked in or even offered chips which are no longer provided if not requested. We’re okay with no chips, but when food takes that long maybe ask if we want. We had to say bring us some if food is going to take longer. He took our empty glasses to include our water glasses! Host came by thinking we sat ourselves and we told him he seated us. Watching him the entire time he always had a scowl. When food finally came out it was lukewarm at best. One order should have had guacamole with it but didn’t. But since the waiter never came by until we asked for check, we couldn’t tell him. Sadly this is one of our favorite restaurants in town.
I love the restaurant however the service was terrible. I have never experienced it this bad and hope that they can get better servers and more of them.
Great food and service
Our server was excellent. Think the name was Daniel. I have n allergy to onions which is in everything and he saw to it that I received a wonderful dinner with no onion.
Very attentive to our whole table.
Our waitress could have been a bit more attentive. Not looking for anything over the top but it would be nice to have drink refills and have her come by and check on us.
A busy place during Car Week in Monterey! With reservations made a week in advance, we were seated immediately and served promptly. Server was very busy and service fell off a bit after initial order, but still in the respectable range. Food was good and hot, crowd was congenial. We'll go back.
It was busy, server was overwhelmed. Food arrived cold after 45 minute wait. It was car week, but usually they manage a better job.
The food was the best Mexican food I’ve ever eaten. Fresh Fish tacos and pork enchiladas. Superb. And Mauro our wait person was fantastic.
Meeting with a good friend
Good portion size. Enjoyed fish tacos with choice of sword or halibut.
Nice red wine selection. A bit crowded ( busy atmosphere) even though not full.
Our waitress has served us on other evenings and she is awesome! Unfortunately I cannot remember her name. She has long dark hair. The food as always was delicious. Thank you
Great food, drinks (margz), and service! Always a good time at Baja Cantina! 😀
We really enjoyed this restaurant. My post-COVID experience with most restaurants is often disappointing. But Baja Cantina served quality food and had great service. The menu offered many choices. Drinks are a bit pricey though. We sat outside on a nice day and it was great. Will go there again!
Food was awesome, service was very good. Had reservations but arrived early and the still took us right in and seated us. It was a little dark inside for me so would have liked a little more lighting but still was an overall great experience.
Great meal & atmosphere. Fun staff- great, laid back restaurant.
Food was mediocre, server messed up our order twice, then overcharged us on our bill. Salsa tasted like it came out of a jar. Not the same as our last visits when we travel to Carmel. Won’t be visiting again.
Excellent dinner choice! We were looking for a less touristy place away from downtown Monterey to have dinner and this place was perfect. The food was great! Our table ordered fajitas, a quesadilla, chimichanga, and a combination plate. The pork in some of the entrees was tender and delicious! The tacos in the combination plate were a little bland, I’d probably order something else next time I go back. Frozen margarita didn’t have much flavor but still tasted good. I’m not a fan of the chips they serve with the complimentary chips and salsa. Everything was reasonably priced. Service was good. The environment and decor was really unique. We enjoyed the change of scenery was dinner!
Meh…. Really not that great
For Mexican food, food was a little better than average. Service & atmosphere was a “4.5”. Not too many choices around Carmel - would need to go to Seaside area for more authentic Mexican fare.
Our server was amazing. She knew what we wanted and service was quick. Great place overall.
Absolutely one of our favorites!!! Great food and marvelous service!
This was a very place to eat. We chose to eat outside and it was very lovely. The food was great and the service excellent.
It was a nice day in Carmel Valley so we chose to eat outside even though it was a bit cool and windy. If you want good but pretty plain or Mexican inspired food then Baja Cantina is the place to go. Our service was pleasant and prompt. Even though we were outside as it filled up it got noisy enough, at least where we were sitting, that it got somewhat difficult to hold a conversation. Our meals were very good and the portions were quite large.
Food was good, drinks were good, atmosphere was great, and our server Maro rocked it.
Baja Catina great food and our server was excellent! I’m
Good is always consistent, hot and good! Service was quick this time which is not always the case!
The food and service were terrific, it was a ice sunny afternoon what else could you want, right? Maybe a little cleaner tabletop, everything else was perfect!
Delicious bean dip appetizer, chile verde burrito, mahi mahi tacos, and negra modelos for lunch out on the deck. Hard to choose from the many great options on the menu. Fun decor and fast, friendly service.
The patio was awesome! I ordered a raspberry margarita that just tasted like a raspberry slush, which was good, but didn’t have any taste of alcohol. The food was wonderful as was the ambiance. We will definitely be back.
Although I have lived on the Monterey Peninsula for years, this was my first visit to Baja Cantina. My friends and I had a great time. The food was delicious, the service was very good, and dining on the outdoor patio was fabulous on a warm summer evening. What's not to like? I will definitely go there again.
Enjoying the weather, dining outdoors. Food good as always.
A favorite with locals. The outside deck is not be missed in warmer weather.
Always a great experience at Baja Cantina. See ya for Father’s Day!
Great Service and great food. The staff had great energy.
