Disappointed by meal


At 5:30pm on a Saturday evening, no on was in the large restaurant dining room. A true hint that we should have walked out. The waitress acted as if she did not want to work that day. She took her time approaching us, asked us what we wanted to drink and then disappeared for a long time. We ordered two No 7 meals. What is difficult about that? Once she brought our meals to the table, she quickly disappeared before we could inspect the plate. She gave us the wrong meals. But, we are not argumentative and ate what she gave us. We did not see her again until we had to ask another waitress for our bill. When our waitress finally came with the bill, we told her that it was not the meal we ordered, but, we ate it anyways. She argued with us that we DID order the No 5 meals (we ordered No 7) and walked off as if we were at fault. We should have walked out as soon as we got the wrong meal. I advise you not to go to that restaurant. The service was terrible. Will not return.

Friday night, dinner time, only 3 customers. Now I Understand!!!


I and my kids just got back from there. My daughter and I were hungry for real mexican food (something other than Taco Bell), my son wanted McDonalds but was out voted. The waitress seated us but we kept our coats on because it was a bit cold inside, not too bad though. We decided to get some queso dip with the chips and salsa. The salsa was very good but the Queso was almost cold, certainly cooler than room temp. The taste was OK but not a fan of chilled queso. While we waited for our food, we were entertained by a couple of small flying visitors that were most annoying. I don't think flies were supposed to be part of the atmosphere. The food came in a reasonable amount of time. My daughter enjoyed the rice and taco but said the refried beans tasted funny. My son thought the chicken fingers and french fries were good. My soup was so overloaded with raw onions, scallions and salt, that was all I could taste. I had a side of rice and it was very good. Again, the food was not hot, this time it was better, it was somewhat warm. Service was not bad but the waitress took my son's plate away while I was in the restroom. If there was not half a plate of food still left, I would not care. Since I know my son will be hungry again in another hour, those leftovers would have been nice. I would have liked to have been asked but not a big deal. Overall, a very disappointing experience. Next time if I have a choice between this place and McDonalds, I will listen to my son and go to McDonalds.

Used to be good...not anymore


Visited Casita del Lago on 4/27 having not been there for a while and we were terribly disappointed. Small portions, burned bean, filty vase on table, poor/slow service and sticky rice. Salsa was not homemade like when they opened. Will NOT return.

No Thanks


The service is horrible!! The food, if they get it right is average at best. 2 out of 4 dinners we got were ok, but mine was not good and my wife did not get the main part of hers until we were all done with ours. Appetizer took 1/2 hour to get to us and it was not that busy. Will not be back.

Two Tries and Done


After our first visit to this restaurant, we were disappointed, but willing to give them a second chance. After yet another bad meal, we will no longer be giving them our business. Both times we ordered carry out from this place, our orders were incorrect (sometimes missing as many as two items per combo plate) and horribly wrapped on styrofoam plates covered in tin foil. I specifically added an order of rice and an order of beans because the menu clearly stated that my dish DID NOT COME WITH THEM. Well, that day it did, and then we had extra food we didn't really need. The portions are extremely small for what you pay, which makes this especially bad in my book. If you're looking for Mexican food in the Avon Lake area, there are other better places to try. So...missing items, incorrect items, poor carry out service, small portions, and a high bill for what you get means we are now officially done with this place.

What Happened


We were frequent visitors to this establishment until our last visit. The salsa was not the same nor was our regularlly ordered dishes. We asked one of the servers and he told us that the chef left. The bartender was very unprofessional having a sexual conversation with another gentleman guest sitting next to us at the bar. She left the bar for some time with the gentleman, perhaps a smoke break. We really liked this restuarant but will not return, there are other mexican resturants out there to try.

Amazing Mexican Food


I have been going to Casita Del Lago for few years now and I have had excellent service each and every time. The food is amazing so is their margaritas. As for Holly below me the total jerk is you. You probly ate the whole dish and asked for your money back. I have tried chix parm on every single Italian restaurant in Northeast Ohio and none of them taste the same, everyone has their own taste that doesn't mean that I will give them a bad review. So next time go to your preferred Taco Bell so you can be happy.

Frequent Visitors!


I think everyone here can agree that this is quite the hidden secret. We first discovered the Avon Lake restaurant about 2 months ago, and can happily say that we have been there about 5 times now! :) We try to attend on a weekly basis with friends, everyone we bring there loves it just as much as we do. The staff is great! The owner is very friendly and makes you feel right at home. The food is not like the other Mexican places I've vistited. It seems they invest so much more quality into their food, and even their salsa with fresh cut ingrediants. I have never been the slightest bit dissapointed. I tell everyone I know in hopes that Casita Del Lago will be around for many many years. I for one, will not be eating at any other mexican restaurant besides Casita Del Lago! They cannot be beat!!!

Great food


I am visiting Cleveland, coming from Cambridge, MA where we have a huge selection of premium Mexican restaurants, I am surprised to find the same quality in here. The location is great, next to the lake and close to some park I can't remember the name, food portions are huge, waiters are super nice and friendly. Please try the margaritas, they do go cheap. I was so happy to find my favorite Mexican beer the Negro Modelo. The Acapulco burrito made my day.

It was our first visit so we asked our waitress for recommendations (Carne Asada and Steak al Chipotle). They were on the spot! Huge portions too. The salsa was great and so were the marguerites. Our waitress was very sweet, knowledgeable and helpful. Can't wait to go back and try the Mole!

Good Stuff!


We had a nice, casual evening with quick, attentive service, a great waitress, excellent Mex food and lots of it. Meat/seafood fajitas were delicious and the vegan in our party was well cared for with the Burrito Acapulco. Prices are very reasonable -- check out their online menu.

Great Mexican Food


We ate here for the first time today. The food is excellent. The portions are huge. It is the best Mexican restaurant I have eaten at in Cleveland. We will be going back soon. My wife says the margaritas are excellent.

Underrated Gem


My wife and I stopped in for the first time a few days ago. Aside from the backwards entrance to the building, and oddly shaped hallway leading into the place, we discovered a lively and simple mexican place that really needs to be better known. The food was great, portions plentiful, and drink prices were very nice! My wife says to try the Sangria. Great job, Casita Del Lago. Just need to get the word out. You're my mexican place, now.

It is so difficult to find a REALLY good restaurant these days ~ one that has superior and friendly service, authentic atmosphere, excellent and reasonably priced meals that come in good portions, where you feel almost as comfortable as you are at home. We have been going to Casita del Lago almost since it opened. We have seen the business grow much to our delight! We have recommended this restaurant to many people and will continue to do so. We really have so much good to say about it! I think that our frequent, weekly (or more) visits prove that we greatly love this restaurant! It has definitely become one of our favorites!

Muy Bien!


We are very happy to have a good mexican restaurant on this part of town! Very fresh....served piping hot! Salsa and guacalmole are delicious! Prices are reasonable and portions are huge! Love the seafood enchiladas and taco al carbon (chicken). My husband is a huge fan of the beefsteak al la cazuela (or something like that!) Give it try - you will not be disappointed!
