Pretentious and Obnoxious waitress
By KLfoodie of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, December 25, 2007 - 12:49pm [Dine in]

"We had an unpleasant experience at Las Margaritas last night. We were seated in a table next to the bar and had a waitress who served us all night and she appeared friendly.

We ended giving her a 14% tip. I think this is about normal but the waitress came by and started to give us a speech about how our tip was far less than what she deserved. We found her attitude to be condescending and tasteless. All that friendliness she displayed now appeared contrived and was largely dependent upon a tip far greater than what we had offered. There was no reason for her to engage is such a lengthy dialogue to tell us we badly underpaid her tip.

Good but not great
By captainSafety of Vancouver (6 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, March 28, 2007 - 3:44pm [Dine in]

The food and the atmosphere are really good. After going there a few times I have realized that its one of those places that you like but often falls second place to another option. The food is really good depending on what you order. Some of it lacks flavor but overall i have had 4 really good experiences. Service can get slow when its busy and for myself its not a place i would wait in line for unless i was really craving it or never had it. Portions are really good and will fill you up and food is always hot and fresh. if you havent been here i highly recommend you try it.

Mass Produced Packaged Mexican
By Yum-Yum of Soma, Vancouver (2 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, March 1, 2007 - 1:29am [Dine in]

Las Margaritas was pretty cool when I was in my early 20's and didn't know any better. The food tastes exactly the same as it did then -- probably because most of it seems to come out of a can.

I agree with the majority of the other "reviewers" regarding the service. Stop "posing" and acting like the gods/godesses that you aren't!

For better mexican: try Mouse and Bean, Mexi-cali, the place in the Granville Island Market or make it yourself. (Now that I think of it -- the food from this place screams Old 'el Paso leftovers!)

The deck is good, so if you're going for some drinks after work -- the nachos might prevent a hangover.

Wow -- I really used to love the place :(

Not authentic, but still good
By foodies of coal harbour, vancouver (5 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, January 14, 2007 - 6:14pm [Dine in]

This place is not authentic by any means, so if that's what you're looking for this is not for you. But if you do want pretty good tex mx, it's really not bad. Although, $2.25 for a small wicker basket of chips and salsa is very, very unreasonable. The steak fajitas are my regular order and other than needing salt they're not bad, but they really should add cheese. Service is different everytime we go, it's never outstanding, sometimes bad, but usually average. Use the entertainment coupon it softens the blow.

Lame mexican wannabe
By brendwal of West End, Vancouver (7 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, March 14, 2006 - 5:17pm [Dine in]

Las Margs as it is known to the hip young yuppy wannabees has become just a hangout with mediocre BLAND food. It is loud and bustling, but just not worth the lame food. Oh, if you like refried beans, then enjoy! The rest is so boring. There are many other Mexican places to try without putting up with the long waits for this yuppy hole.

Stands to Improve
By vancouvert of Kitsilano (7 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, January 19, 2006 - 4:47pm [Dine in]

If they could make this place even a little better it could make a big difference. The staff are all early 20's (or so it seems) and care more about their own night's plans than the service they give. The drinks are OK, nothing to write home about. I live close and would love if they could improve this place, the patio is great in the summer and if the drinks weren't so bloody overpriced I would visit much more often. Food is good.

Always Good
By hsall of Surrey , BC (2 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, November 25, 2010 - 2:18pm [Dine in]

The Mexican food served here is absolutely great with fresh ingredients; I have never sent anything back…Walk in the door; always get a friendly greeting, complimentary chips and salsa to start… A lot of the dishes are topped off with different sauces; we usually ask for all the toppings on the side so the soft shell doesn’t get “soggy”…..best to have reservations as they get pretty busy for lunch/dinner. Will be back.

Favourite Mexican Restaurant
By shannin_ of Point Grey (6 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, January 21, 2009 - 7:32pm [Dine in]

I've been here several times and this place serves some really good food and I've always had a pleasant experience here. As a vegetarian, I am quite limited in my selections at most restaurants, but this place offers a few vegetarian options. The burrito is my favourite thing here. And the salsa and chips are just really delicious. For the margaritas, the raspberry one is quite sour but I really enjoyed the mango one. I had a virgin mango one, and personally I like their virgin ones better.

The service is usually pretty good here. It can get quite busy in the evening though. The ambiance is nice too. Not bad, but not amazing.

Service Sucks!
By jmks of Vancouver (5 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, October 3, 2008 - 5:41pm [Dine in]

The young male server, maybe there's more than one, you know who you are, is rude and grouchy and goes out of his way to make you feel uncomfortable. Too bad that the food is fairly decent, though I wouldn't call it mexican per se, and the prices are good, but the servers are rude and the hostesses haven't got a clue about anything, period.

An easy experience
By finger22 of downtown (4 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, May 29, 2007 - 10:56am [Dine in]

I like this place for a casual Mexican experience. The Margaritas are excellent, the food has great value and the service, while it is the weakest point, is solid. I've always managed to leave satisfied. I will be back.
