What a great place! – The owner is a great, friendly host, and makes you feel like you are at a party at his house! Everything on the menu is delicious, my favorite is the fresh Pescado de Tito, (our toddler loves it too, and loves dancing to the music). It gets loud, and yes, it is small, but this is not a place for uptight, picky people. We have been visiting for years and can't wait to go back!
Service is horrible – I never got to try the food because I was told to leave the restaurant.
When we first called to make reservations for 7:45, we were told that we'll be seated with no problem. We arrived at about 7:35 and the girl said it would be about 10-15 minute wait. The place is super tiny, the size of my kitchen and dining room. It's also very loud, so there is no good place to wait, unless you want to crowd over folks still at the tables. So we went back to the car. After 15 minutes we came in, where a guy (i presume the owner) said it would be a 25 minute wait now. I tried to explain that we were already here earlier. He said he does not need to server us if he does not want to, and opened the door for me to leave the restaurant. I have never received service this bad anywhere in Seattle. Maybe the U-District location is better, but I am completely turned off from trying either one again.
Love this place!!! – I'm always a little apprehensive about trying a new type of food, so I hesitated to try this tiny place, but it was AMAZING!!! The food was delicious and the service was top notch! Their home-made Sangria was the best I've ever had and, again, the service was spectacular and VERY personable! I've never written a review for a restaurant before, but I had such a good experience here that I HAD to rave about it!
The music was very loud so it was hard to talk, but the ambiance was fun so it was worth it.
Fantastic! – Fantastic everything! La Casa De Mojito is outrageous on all levels. Drinks, food, atmosphere, music, people - the vibe is fabulous!! My friends and I can't get enough. La Parilla is excellent, of course the Mojitos are a blast and the flan is delicious but don't go without having the tortilla espanola and a cafe con leche and be transported to another world!! All else I can say is Spectacular!!! Viva Mojito! Ciao.
Great food, not so comfy – I went to the University location instead of Lake City; not sure how they compare.
Food was excellent (something I almost never say about a restaurant), nice portion sizes (ie not 3x as much as a human can eat), friendly prompt service. Only complaints: it was too cold in there, a bit too dark, and the paintings and decor were better than restaurant generic but still kind of blah.
Really great food and personable staff! – Please note: This restaurant has moved to University Way (and 52nd).
The food at this restaurant is absolutely delicious! So are the mojitos...probably the best I've had! I love restaurants that give you the opportunity to know the owner...it makes the experience more personable. The owner takes time to sit and talk with his customers, so you get some of the background about the restaurant and the food. Tables can be pushed together to accommodate larger groups and there's really cool artwork on the walls (created by a cousin). My only complaint is that it's always really cold inside during the winter and I have to keep my coat on.
Great Drinks, Food and Service – It's phenomenol! Try the Vaca Frita, tostones with lots of garlicy mojito sauce, drink the capirinhas and mojitos for ultimate pleasure. We've been eating here for a couple years now and the service (if Luam is there, and he usually is) is the best around...he's warm, friendly, knows our order before we sit down. If crowds aren't your thing, go a bit early...we don't have trouble though we're usually early because we have a child. We brought a friend from Columbia who also thought the food and drinks were fabulous.
BEST FOOD AND DRINKS!!! – I have been coming here since it was Mojito Cafe. Since splitting with Mojito Cafe and becoming La Casa Del Mojito, they have only improved dramatically!!!!!! I tried the dowtown Mojito Cafe and I would never go back! La Casa Del Mojito is small, but ADORABLE!!! The REALLY hot staff doens't hurt a bit!!! Tito and Luam are FOXES!!!!!!
Great experience! Increadible Service! Mouth watering food! – I'd have to say this is definitly the warmerst spot in the city. Today was my second time I've been there. They remembered me and my drink and made me feel as if they have known me forever. The food was so delicious I have to tell all of my friends. Great music, fantastic staff, superb drinks! I can't wait to go there with a group of friends. You'll love it and I'm sure I'll see you there.
one of my favorite places in Seattle – Here, the service and the atmosphere is EVERYTHING. Not to mention that the food is very good, this is the sort of place that you want to come and just let loose. Wonderful for after work, while not a place where you have to deal with the downtown traffic and parking. You can just come in when you like, enjoy some drinks, music and dancing, and have a great time. I have eaten here numerous times over the years, and although I miss what used to be their "artistic wall notes", I still enjoy the decor and music. Luom and the guys are great!
