Mexico City - Los Feliz

  • a

I read on an earlier post about going to this place before heading to the Greek...I stopped in before last night's Wilco show.
The hostess ignored me when I walked in and then told me it would be 10 minutes for a table for 2 (even though there were numerous tables open.)
After finally being seated 20 minutes later (the hostess disappeared and ignored many waiting for tables), my friend and I sat and ate on chips while many waiters passed us by and ignored our pleas to order. After 20 minutes (!), with an empty bowl of chips and no water on our table, we ditched the place.

I don't reccomend this place on my worst enemy. The food looked overpriced and I've been ignored so harshly. (And it wasn't just me, the table next to me complmained to the hostess as we sat down.)

  1. Been that way for nearly 10 years, so no surprise here. Talk about your consummate space cadets - and that does not even address the food issue, which at that point is beside the point! When or will they ever get it?!

    1. Blandest Mexican food I've ever had. If it were a choice between Mexico City & El Coyote (which is also pretty lame) I'd think I'd be driving down Beverly Blvd. even though Mexico City is much closer.

        I'll second that - at least El coyote is loads of fun, kind of a Mexican Buca di Beppo. We went to Mexico City just once, and though the food was okay it was clear the kitchen was coasting on its reputation, and the waitstaff didn't even give a shit about that. Sad.

          Thirded. I'll go to Taco Bell before this place.

            Agreed! Went once about 7 years ago and the service and food were both horrible!

      2. It's also INSANELY loud.

        And always jammed.

        People are idiots.

          Gosh, it sounds like you had a bad experience. I haven't eaten there in about two years since I moved over the hill but I must say that I used to enjoy eating there. The food is pricey but good.

          1. consider yourself lucky! mexico city is TERRIBLE. i'll never return based on the horrible food alone.
