    The new decor is beautiful, fresh and clean. Our server was great very helpful in answering all my questions. The food came out quickly however, it was lukewarm at best. Presentation was beautiful! I would prefer more spices used in the dishes - fish and the carnitas fajitas. My husband and I thought both dishes were on the bland side. We will try Coyote Grill again but it will be several months. We need restaurants that are local so I wish the new management all the best.

    The food was cold. We were expecting more of the old restaurant. The restaurant was almost empty.

    We live in town and tried Coyote Grille after it changed owners. Don't expect it to be similar to the former restaurant, it's completely different. They should really change the name and the logo so it's clear. We came here with neighbors a few months ago when they first opened and tried some appetizers. The flavors were good, but the yucca app was cold in the middle and the brussels were a little overcooked. The pisco sours were blended instead of shaken, very weird. Not a great first impression. The ambiance is weird too, lots of staff standing around, but understand they just opened and still working out kinks. Wanting to support local business, my wife and I went a second time during Restaurant Week. Our cocktails were great. My yucca app was still cold in the middle and her tamale was dry in the middle. I got Peruvian chicken, my chicken thigh was dry, the skin was fatty on the edges, and it needed salt. Arepas, sauce, and slaw were good. My wife's carne asada was okay, steak cooked nicely. The Tres leches cake tasted like plain boxed yellow cake, we weren't even sure it was Tres leches. I sound like a real a-hole here, but we eat at some really amazing restaurants on a regular basis. We also come from cooking families and cook very well at home. These dishes have not been well executed. Overall a bit saddened, we really wanted to be impressed. If you're a foodie, you may be disappointed. We may try again someday, but it will have to be another Restaurant Week so the prices are lower.

    We had 6 people at the table. The first two people were served and had to start eating so it didn’t get cold. When they were 3/4 finished the next 2 were served. Then about 4 minutes later another and 5 minutes later my food. So it was not great service. The waiter said the kitchen was backed up but at least bring all the food at the same time

    Enjoyable food interesting. We had not tried the Latin South American food interesting flavors. They need to change their sign to say just Coyote Grill takeaway Cantina It used to be an excellent Mexican restaurant recently I think people still it is Mexican 🤷‍♀️

    We are from out of town and we chose this restaurant quickly by seeing it on Open Table. The food was beyond outstanding!! I would highly recommend the Arepas de Carnitas, the Grilled Carne Asada and the house made churros, which were the best churros I have ever had anywhere! Fantastic! Make a date of this and let yourself enjoy the experience! We will definitely return!
