to great salad options; fair salsa; great service; but wouldn't go back twice due to the food; no one in our party of 6 were "wow'd"; too many other great options in the city to go here

This place has the best nacho dish I have ever had. The ingredients were fresh and toppings they chose to put on it were perfect. It was on a griddle and that helped keep everything warm and melted. The drinks that we had were also very good. The one issue I had was that the chile relleno that I had ordered was not very good. They tried to put a "spin" on this dish and the flavors did not meld together as they probably had hoped. I would not suggest that dish. The restaurant was nice and setting was great. When visiting I definitely will be back.

Absolutely incredible food. Unfortunately, the service detracted from the overall experience. We ate here for brunch and the food was amazing. I ordered the Cactus Benedict. Scrumptious. Server was very nice but inattentive. He never checked on us or warmed up our coffee once. Plus, we waited forever for our food. The Cactus Alki Beach location had stellar service when we visited so we'll probably choose that location next time.

We met friends for dinner here on a weeknight. This place has great food and great service and is always busy. The menu has a wide selection of Mexican inspired food with a modern twist. My Sonoran Spa Chicken was super tender and full of flavor. The kids' casedeas were generous, and the others enjoyed their dishes too. Our server was very helpful in advising and checking on items to accommodate our kids' food allergies and worked with the kitchen to make sure everything was OK. We appreciated the attention throughout the meal, and enjoyed a rich and creamy flan for dessert.

The restaurant is located in the Madison Park neighborhood a couple miles east of downtown at the end of Madison Ave on the shore of Lake Washington. This neighborhood of small shops and restaurants is a little tight on parking, but well worth the drive.
