Ambience is great and the food is amazing. Our server was personable and seemed helpful, though there was a major issue w food delivery.

We requested a table outside and none were available even though the reservation was confirmed. The host said she could see the note about the outdoor table, but admitted no one had done anything to make that happen.

Worse, for a table of six, only five entrees arrived. The sixth person’s entree finally came out as the rest of us were finishing. There was no compensation— extra drink, something to nibble on while he waited, and it took asking a few people to look into it before the dish finally arrived. It made for an awkward meal.

That said, we love this place and we’ll be back. Hopefully the service kinks will be worked out!

Terrible experience with the seating, I understand that the place becomes packed but saying you have no available tables then I watch multiple 2 tops get seated 45 minutes after I’ve been there with my 6:45 reservation was just terrible etiquette. I will never return, bar staff was pleasant but restaurant was way too noisy.

The food was excellent! We had the carnitas and loved them! We also had the great ceviche and it was a bit spicy but tasty and nicely soft.
The server was prompt, attentive, and friendly. The location and ambiance were great for a family meal outside.

We will be back! There are a great number of dishes we would love to try. We will also bring our friends.

It was my first time at Camacho Garage. Great space, cool seating areas. We ordered from the restaurant week menu, assuming they would have wonderful offerings to entice us to come back. There were 3 appetizers options and 3 options for entrees. The fish app turned out to be raw fluke with extremely spicy sauce which we found disgusting and inedible. Fluke is some kind of bottom-dwelling bony fish, probably the cheapest fish on the market. The huaracha was a corn tortilla with lettuce on top, totally not worth eating. We didn't try the soup. We both had the brisket tacos for the entree which were pretty good. The manager said we should come back and try the regular menu. Why would they not put the good stuff on the restaurant week menu? I won't be going back.

Lively spot to get together. We enjoyed the outdoor seating with string lights overhead and plenty of space heaters.
We had heard about the guacamole - we enjoyed that, naked vegetarian tacos, enchiladas and a great tuna dinner.
There is street parking - we got lucky, but I feel parking could be problematic. No other downsides, we had a great night!

It was way over priced for the amount of food you received. The food was good. The waitress told us of their dessert special of a lava cake over cheesecake. My friend ordered it and it was very small amount. When she received the bill they had charged her for two desserts. $24. Who pays $24 for a tiny dessert. The waitress never told us it was going to be $24. My friend commented on it and was told that the manager would remove the charge but she had already ate it. Well you don’t receive the bill until after you are done eating. The manager did come over and removed the charge for one so it went from $24 to $12.

We loved restaurant week
Only issue I had was the fluke was a little salty for my taste.I was able to exchange for another appetizer
The coconut margaritas where fabulous. We definitely plan on coming back for happy hour and an appetizer

Bartender at brunch was not well trained. Didn’t make eye contact unless we called him and he fired all our food at once which was annoying.

Amazing food, however very slow service. We went at around 4 pm, and it was nice ambiance. The Appetizer was delicious but what stood out to me most was the Mexican Tiramisu. If you don't mind waiting a bit, definitely check it out.

We loved our meal(s) at Camacho Garage.
We chose to sit outside because it was a nice night and because it was a bit noisy inside.
I wish there had been some outside heaters in our area but it was early enough that a sweater was good enough to be comfortable. The heater would have taken the little edge off though.
The service was good and the food was outstanding and very generous.
I am excited to return and to try some of the items that we were too full to try on this visit.
My one disappointment was that they didn’t have flan - my favorite- as a dessert choice the night that we went, though there were plenty of other luscious options. Truth be told, we were so stuffed when we left, that we even took home the food we could not fit in then. We had a lovely next day lunch!!
We live in the same neighborhood so had walked to and from the “Garage”- which helped get a few steps in after eating so much.
We’ll be doing take-out in the near future!!

Good food and reasonable prices, but poor service. It took 45 minutes just to get our drinks and our entire food order was wrong! The waitress did however try to make up for things by giving the table free popsicles. I think she was doing her best.
