The place is dirty. The service I experienced was shocking as the employees seemed to be unhappy with their jobs. The food lost it's traction, plates are no longer well presented, portions are smaller. Parking lot was also dirty.

Haven't had a bad meal there since we've been going for the past 2 months. Loved the one in Jaco, and this one is right on as well when it comes to fish... .anything fish... they do it well. And not too expensive either... you get a great meal for a reasonable cost.

Stopped in for lunch after finding on trip advisor. Menu had many selections and Mediterranean salad bar was welcoming. Returned later in week for dinner and our meals again were great. Everything was fresh and made to order. Service was fast and staff were pleasant and helpful.

Food here is decent but over priced for what it is and there is not much selection. Servings are rather small also.

My come-to place for great fresh salad and tasty menu options. Really, despite being on the mini-drag, traffic-snarled access into Santa Ana, it has created a little oasis of modern fusion foods, wonderful salad bar, fulfilling über-healthy smoothies, friendly staff - and maintains cleanliness and quality. I love this place is so close to where I work and live!!

We are a group of international students, and are always looking for new restaurants. Taco Bar is perfect! There are lots of vegetarian options, amazing drinks and desserts. The staff are incredibly courteous and generous, and are all proficient English speakers (handy for tourists!) I highly recommend Taco Bar. Beautiful atmosphere and lovely people.
