    Outstanding service and attention to detail. The food and ingredients were locally sourced, and the chef even visited our table, which had a nice personal touch. Excellent meal and start to our evening. We will be returning to dine again.

    Wonderful dishes with attentive service. Mary’s roasted chicken in the mole sauce with corn risotto was the best chicken dish I have ever had. Cocktails were great as well.

    Octopus, soup, Caesar salad, burger, and Baja tacos- all delicious! Very attentive and friendly service, outdoor patio great, bring a sweater/jacket but there are heat lamps.

    Lovely evening. We find no reason to leave the resort when we stay at Estancia. We are more than happy every evening to try something different at Mustangs and Burros

    My wife and I were excited to try this spot. Ended up being disappointed beyond measure. We were prepared for the price tag, but expected the food and service to match. This was not the case. Ordered the tomahawk, but wasn’t prepared to wait over an hour to get it. The place wasn’t even that busy. My wife ordered a beverage and never got it. When she finally brought it to waiter’s attention there was no apology. As for the $130 tomahawk, it came out well done when I ordered it pink throughout, but I wasn’t about to wait another hour if I sent it back. I hope for their sake that it was just a bad service and meal experience for us, but for bill amount we expected way better.

    I generally save 5 stars for truly exceptional restaurants. This was delicious CaliMex food for a night out with family, friends. Tasty guacamole, an unusually flavorful chicken al pastor taco. Interesting variety of fine tequilas. Sit outside if weather allows and enjoy the surroundings of Estancia La Jolla.

    This is our 3rd time dining here. The first 2 times were much better. Since they have renovated, they no longer have music at the restaurant. It is now in the new bar. Restaurant is very quiet and quite boring. It used to be more lively. The food was very mediocre and service was not as good as before. This was a hidden gem before but it has lost its personality. Not sure if I will be back.
