Pros: Consistency.

Cons: None for me.

Horrible place. Really fishy fish.

Oh and Expensive and slow.

2 small tijuana tacos will run you over 13 dollars.

The manager thinks that this is some kind of gourmet restaurant, but it lives off the fame of the original-which is

My boyfriend and I went here hoping to find something remotely similar to Tex-Mex ( I know, that was dumb). It all started off on the wrong foot when we parked in a space at the back under a sign that read "Customer parking." A valet

I'd been to this place years ago and had the fondest memories of the different gourmet spin on Mexican food; had loved the little tuft of spoon corn bread that they had served. Oh the disappointment! Upon my return, my husband and I were

I hesitate to call this a Mexican restaurant because it's so different from what you expect. The dishes are really high quality, fresh and light. I had the salmon and it was so good that I wouldn't share with anyone at the table.

Pros: are there pros to a shot in the butt? well, I got to miss work, so that's a pro.

Cons: could have died

I tried this place because it was reasonably-priced and rated well in Zagat. It's right next to Westside Pavilion, so you can park there. If you like seafood and Mexican food, I would recommend giving this place a try. They combine

The original Le Serenata de Giaribaldi in downtown Los Angeles is the most amazing restaurant -- unbelievable food -- this restaurant is run by the same family but it is more of a cafe than a restaurant and I miss some of the amazing dishes from the original -- but the food is still quite good here -- upscale mexican -- the owner has been written up in Bon Appetit and is considered a "genius in the kitchen"

Among my three favorites restaurants, period. Whether you start with the light and fluffy quesadillas, a soup or other traditional goody, you will be delighted. This is Mexican cuisine at its best. The shrimp Yucatan fired pleasure

This is my favorite Mexican in LA and the only place where I eat every week. The fresh fish and the homemade sauces are out of this world. My favorite is the grilled halibut with avocado sauce. This delight plus rice and beans for $15

Pros: amazing fresh food, reasonable prices, friendly staff

This is a family run establishment. I frequent it many times with my mom, she's 87, and the food is consistently excellent. Sometimes Mexican food can upset the elderly, but she has never complained about her meals there. This is Mexico

Pros: Food, friendly greetings.

Pros: honestly cannot think of one

Cons: atrocious service, who knows what makes it on the plate

I agree about uneven service. I'm fairly sure it's a family run business which is why the hostess can get away with some rudeness. I've been there a lot and had great service most of the time though. The food is very good, but don't

Just went to lunch there based on other reviews. Service in mediocre (I missed the nasty hostess as there was no one there but the bartender to greet my group). Salsa not bad but the food was ordinary. Rice isn't flavored w/saffron,

La Serenata is simply the best Mexican food I've found outside of Mexico. The other reviewers who posted negative reviews are either one of two possible types of people:

1) They are used to ground beef tacos and the typical gringo slop
