We discovered the Haute Enchilada by accident when we were unable to get reservations at the nearby Whole Enchilada one weekend. Elf features some amazing We've loved the seafood twist to Mexican food that the Whole Enchilada offers, but the Latin-inspired dishes that the Haute Enchilada introduced us to that evening opened our minds and palettes to a whole new...

Stopped here after kayaking in Elkhorn Slough. The staff was very friendly and the food was delicious. It was really busy, so we ate at the bar. All the Mexican food standards, plus some local specialties and some seafood, as well. Owned by the same people (I think) as the Whole Enchilada (which is around the corner and right on... More

Menu was very interesting and food delivered was great - presented on our plates artistically, colorfully and proportioned nicely - then the real delight - the tastes !! Asked for an appetizer with "xyz" and were obliged with an off menu plate without any fuss or hesitation. Definitely not your typical enchilada establishment - Peruvian and Cuban influences very evident... More

Good food, nice atmosphere. Enjoyed the original art inside the restaurant (as well as the art studio behind the restaurant), and eating at the outside tables on warm afternoons.

Unusual, colourful decoration of the restaurant sets the stage for an equally interesting range of dishes and flavours to suit most people. Very good food.

Driving down to the Monterey Peninsula which we do at least once a year, we always go to Phil's in Moss Landing. But it's a zoo and the parking is difficult and this time the line stretched into the street. That's not us. A few months earlier while on the Central Coast a local vendor mentioned Haute Enchilada to us... More

On our way back from a morning of birding at Elkhorn Slough, just wanted to find somewhere for lunch, no great expectations. But we landed on our feet here, this was by no means a standard Mexican restaurant. The menu was creative and food very well prepared.....plenty of gluten free options too.

great décor Good food a bit out of town as Moss landing is not on the beaten track. While we enjoyed it I would rather be at Phil's down the Road

Whether it was the tempestuously stubborn brumal winds or a capricious notion that directed me to The Haute Enchilada in Moss Landing, I was glad I was here! Once inside the cozy restaurant you are immediately absorbed by the bohemian vaporous promises of a culinary experience. Garnishing the soft pastel colored walls, is the impassioned, enkindling artworks of the owner's... More

We have been to HE's big sister restaurant, The Whole Enchilada a few times. this is like a younger, hipper, and more artsy sibling. The husband and wife are artists/chefs and have decorated this spot with great ingenuity and humor. There is a gallery of the husband's (Luis Solano) and other local artist's works and a great Social Club available... More
