Como es posible que la gente gaste su dinero en esta porquería de este restaurante .
GENTE POR FAVOR SI NO SABEN QUE ES UNA COCINA TRADICIONAL TIPICA OAXACAQUEŃA POR FAVOR NO MAL GASTEN SU DINERO , ESTA NO ES COMIDA !
Esta gente se burla de la gente que va a comer sus inventos , los hombres que van sólo van por ver las mujeres que sirven la comida y que no dejan nada a la imaginación , Bustos salidos y ropa entallada donde se les ve todo ... Una burla y falta de respeto a las mujeres presentes .
How is it possible that people spend their money on this crap for this restaurant.
PLEASE PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW IF THAT IS A TYPICAL TRADITIONAL KITCHEN OAXACAQUEŃA Do not spend your money, THIS IS NOT FOOD!
These people make fun of people who will eat his inventions, men who are only going to see women serving the food and leave nothing to the imagination, and baked Bustos fitting clothing where you see them all ... A mockery and disrespect to the women present.

Met a friend here for dinner on a Friday about 6pm. The place was PACKED. Like as in, to the gills, no there is nowhere to stand while you wait for a table, excuse me as the waiter rushes by loaded with plates of yummy food, packed.
We sat at the bar. It was empty! And as it turned out, it was one of the best spots in the place. We tried a sangria (not as good as my friend's proprietary Sangria, but his is tough to beat) and chicken mole negro Oaxaqueno (black chile mole with chicken, served with white rice and tortillas), the house specialty.
I realize I am in the minority here, but I was not ""wowed"" by the food. It was good, but it didn't kick me in the pants and make me fall in love with it. I have made mole before many times and I left feeling a little underwhelmed.
The good news is, for those who love La Carta, there will be that much more room as I probably won't make it back.

I'm not sure what all the excitement is about regarding La Carta De Oaxaca. I have now been several times and find myself rather unimpressed. The environment is at best homogenized and boring kinda like Starbucks. The restaurant is sooo loud! The service is ok. The staff gets the food out quick and are generally prompt considering how busy the place is. I just think there is more to a good restaurant experience than prompt service. I want to be engaged, and I want my servers to have a personality. I want to feel like I am getting more than just food. I just think La Carta feels like a fast food restaurant. With a seriously boring and overpriced menu. There are far too many great restaurants in the area for me to get excited about this place.

I walked in after hearing good things about this place, I should have read more reviews. Person was rude to me as I walked in, said they were closed, even though there were lots of people eating. It was shortly after 3PM on a Saturday. Won't be back, it's obvious they don't need my business.

Food - the dishes we were served - was excellent and the margaritas delicious. We were given one glass of water for a table of six, despite requests for five more. Other food items we ordered were never served. This is the worst and rudest restaurant service I've ever experienced! Two members of our party left the restaurant in tears - so much for a celebratory evening. Wish I'd read ballardanne's review first.

I just had the most bizarre experience at a restaurant ever. I went here with a friend and her daughter and my husband and daughter decided to join us. We told the waiter that two would be joining us. After my family sat down, the owner came over to tell us that they couldn't eat with us since others were waiting. They could not order and could not eat. We, however could order additional food, but if my husband ate it he would be asked to leave. Needless to say this unnecessary confrontation was an embarrassment and very upsetting to our kids.
He said he would rather stick with his policy and lose us as customers than to accommodate. Hmmmmm must be nice to have sooooo many customers that you feel so cavalier about throwing a few away. I will never be back - there are other authenticate Mexican places to eat at. Just about any taco truck springs to mind......

This is my boyfriend and my absolute favorite restaurant that we go to at least a few times a month. The food is beyond fresh and is not your typical American-Mexican food that is dominated by refried beans and huge platters bigger than a football. Yes, the portions are small, because they are SO CHEAP (plates are between $5 and $8) and meant to be mixed and matched! We usually order three plates when we go, and often an appetizer (their shrimp cocktail is delicious and again, so fresh!). So as long as you realize that this place is meant to have small portions so you can try different plates, then you will love it. The atmosphere is so much fun and... shoot. I want to go right now!

Heard some talk about how wonderful this place was so tried it out. Not wonderful, at all. Had 2 tiny tacos for $5+ each & it would have taken at least 3 more just to make an entre, much less a meal. That is, if I hadn't cut it off and escaped when I did. Probably should have figured this place to be more hype than substance as soon as I saw the stupid church-social style table layout & the parking garage flourescent lighting. Evidently the reviews of this place have somehow benefited from a freak mass of people who either just don't know better or are too afraid to call the Emperor clothesless, as it were (think those who voted for JWBush twice). Anyway while I walk by on my way to better restaurants I am now torn between laughing at & running up to yell some sense into those lemmings who actually wait in the cold to get inside this unworthy spot. Please, don't be a lemming.
