    Tried the entire menu, dish for dish, drink for drink (cocktails), including the desserts. Overall, the food was pretty good, as were the cocktails. My 2 fav dishes of the night: ensalada flan de elote and flora y terra (dessert). Check out kevineats for an extensive and detailed review. I'd say playa is worth checking out at least once.

        I went with my wife for Valentine's day and we both loved it. The food was overall outstanding the service was prompt and very friendly. The cocktails (Julian Cox of Rivera was helming the bar) were excellent. Pictures at

          If you're interested, food critic, Jonathan Gold, covered this restaurant (Playa) today (3/26/11) on KCRW's "Good Food," with Evan Kleiman. You can go to KCRW.com/GoodFood to hear the entire review!
