You can go with your family, loved ones, friends or by yourself, it doesn't matter, you are going to enjoy it. I always ordered the salad with the cesar dressing, but only the dressing is cesar, no the salad, just tell... More

We've been going to La Costa for over 30 years. Food, atmosphere & service is fabulous! It's located about 15 minutes east of Los Angeles & worth the drive. Halibut Veracruz & Shrimp Brochette are our favorites!

I chose this place based on its reviews and ranking. I am not sure I see what the fuss is about. The Salsa was good and tasted home made. The rest of the food was about standard. I am not saying it was bad at all, but it was not a 5 star.

This restaurant has been a staple in the community. It is family owned with many, many repeat customers. The chips and salsa are the best. The dinner salad is cold, crisp and always fresh. The entrees are truly a personal preference. I always order the same items because I love the albondiga soup and taquitos with guacamole and refried beans.... More

This restaurant has wonderful Mexican Seafood with an array of fresh shellfish and fish entrees but the very best meal in my opinion is the Chile Verde. with rice and beans... The sauce is superb and the meat is sweet and tender. They have a full-stocked bar with wonderful Cadillac Margaritas.
