Lent arrived with all that involves. It's no penance for me to eat fish on Friday. Don't get me wrong: I like beef and pork and chicken. I am a carnivore. But give me a great selection of seafood that I do not have to cook and, oh yeah! I am sitting at the table. I lived in Phoenix for... More

Very puzzled by experience given exceptional reviews on TripAdvisor and Google. Wasn't bad, but expectations were high and we were let down. I can get better Mexican food in Indiana. We picked seafood options since that is the special here. I had camarones a la plancha (grilled shrimp) and wife had fish tacos. My dish was sautéed far too long.... More

We decided on seafood, and chose Hermosa, glad we did. Sat on the patio, the interior was a little cramped. Patio was inviting and spacious. I ordered a shrimp and octopus dish, with rice, beans, and lettuce sides, as well as the tortillas. The appetizer was a shrimp cocktail with a mix of seafood, including oysters. Soooo good!!!! My girl... More

while visiting Phoenix, friends took us to PLAYA HERMOSA for dinner. The place was packed and there were live MARIACHIS serenading the guests. It was a bit of wait for the food but the food was good. The guests were happy with the live LOUD Mariachi music. We even requested a couple of songs ourselves. Will definitely return to PLAYA... More

We stopped in for lunch on Valentine's Day. We'd heard good things on Check Please and wanted to find if they were true. They are. I don't know if it was just because it was Valentine's Day or not but the place was rockin'. We got in a little early but by a bit before noon, it was full. I... More

This place is a seafood paradise located far away from the ocean. The menu is over half seafood dishes with some popular Mexican dishes that aren't seafood. We had a shrimp cocktail as an appetizer that we split. I'm glad we only ordered one because it was big. My dinner was the seafood soup which contained crab, fish, shrimp, ,... More

On a beautiful evening last week we ate on the patio at Mariscos. The patio is very clean and well decorated. Our server was great, as upbeat as any that has ever served us. The food came quick and hot. But that is where the great experience stopped. The food taste was average at best. Not a lot of flavor... More

When you walk in it is a small entrance very crammed. Name inputting situation is poorly designed. Pretty much if you know a waitress you are ahead of everyone. Only reason gave it a 3 is cause of the food. I had shrimp aguachilis which was good and spicy. But other than that service alone I wouldn't go back.
