Awesome place for a banquet! – Marix is a great place to have lunch or dinner. It is also a great place for a party. They have a private dining room upstairs that can hold up to 50 people (although I wouldn't recommend more than 40 in there) They offer great banquet menus and Freddy, our waiter, took great care of us. We had our rehearsal dinner there and it was perfect. All of our guests were raving over the food! Loved the whole experience!
Swinging cantinas cater to beach locals and WeHo scenesters alike. – The Scene
Come happy hour, Marix fills with thrill-seeking locals seeking potent margaritas and spicy dishes--and not just of the gastronomic variety. Each wood-trimmed cantina offers a decidedly different kind of action. The Santa Monica locale keeps a casual beach vibe, while the West Hollywood site jumps and bumps with a mostly gay clientele and a constant techno beat--even during Sunday brunch.
Offset the Kick Ass margarita buzz with a lime-drenched seviche "cocktail" or guacamole appetizer. Entree options range from typical Mexican fare (tostadas, enchiladas, tacos, burritos) to "Tex"-inspired--jalapeno-spiced meat dishes served with hefty portions of garlic mashed potatoes. If you don't mind a little head-turning attention, try the popular Sizzling Fajitas: a searing and aromatic platter of either beef, chicken, veggies, shrimp or swordfish accompanied by heaping mounds of beans, rice, cheese and sour cream. Soothe the chipotle burn with a brownie sundae for dessert.
Surprising for Santa Monica – I can hardly believe this place is only a couple blocks from the beach. I'm so used to Santa Monica being over-expensive and over-crowded, that I was really expecting to be disappointed at Marix. We were seated immediately, the food was well above average, the prices were great (2 item combo for $8.95) and the staff was pretty friendly (though they didn't actually provide good service -- you had to chase them down for another beer and they never brought more hot sauce, even after several requests. All-around great experience, though. Will definitely go again.
