    Not many choices for kids, which is on us. Food was ok, not great. It’s byob and they charge $6 for sour Margherita mix/juice that is not good. I would pay $6 for a margarita with actual alcohol. The corn was awesome, the plantains were good but the tacos were average to sub par. Our kids like the horchata and is probably the only thing we would go back for.

    Cielito Lindo is our "go to" place for Mexican Cuisine in central Jersey. The food is fantastic, the value is great, and the service is always excellent (we are always pleased to have Lorena serve us!). You can't go wrong at this wonderful family run restaurant!

    Overall food was good. But unfortunately it appears they only had two people working here. Those two people seemed a bit confused and service was extremely slow. Took almost 45 minutes to bring our entrées. And then 20 minutes later they brought out my soup along with other sides. They were very pleasant and we’re trying their best and without being too harsh their past was not all that well. They look like they had been doing it a while but seemed very confused and overwhelmed at the same time. Don’t know if I just caught them on a bad night but not so sure I will be returning here.

    We were excited to try this place and unfortunately were extremely disappointed. Ordered fajitas - it doesn’t come with tortillas - you have to ask. They came and were corn tortillas. Also didn’t come with sour cream, guacamole or pico. Asked for those sides and was charged extra for all 3. The chicken was thin and hard and dry. The cost definitely wasn’t worth any meal we ordered. Not likely to return and will not recommend.

    The wanted to refuse the reservation outside when we only eat outdoors and it was my moms birthday

    Cielito Lindo Mexican CuisineResponded on May 25, 2022We are sorry that the service was not great for your dining experience! Our front staff's initial unaccommodating manner goes against our philosophy of putting our customers first. We realize that we need to provide more detailed instructions to our staff on what to do in these situations. We hope that you will give us a chance to demonstrate our improved service in the near future!

    Fish tacos were amazing! Crispy fish, just the right amount of cabbage and sauce on warm corn tortillas. Leonardo was an attentive waiter and stopped to check on us often. Reasonable prices-the best Mexican restaurant consistently in the area.

    Cielito Lindo Mexican CuisineResponded on May 25, 2022Thank you for the review Sally! We are happy that you had a positive dining experience and will make sure to let Leonardo know that you enjoyed his service.

    wouldn't come back. small portions and overpriced food, no alcohol, extremely loud, bad service

    Cielito Lindo Mexican CuisineResponded on May 25, 2022We are extremely sorry that you had a negative dining experience with us! We highly appreciate your patronage and feedback. Unfortunately, we are unable to change our prices too much as they reflect market prices but we will make sure to be more conscious about our restaurant's noise level and focus on refining our service via increased and improved training for our front staff.

    There was no mention of a special menu for Cinco de Mayo when I booked. We had little kids that would not eat any of the food offered. When I asked about a kids menu we were told that what was on the special menu was what was offered. So my kids ate $5 sides of rice. Entrees were $18 each with no sides, so add $5 for rice on those as well. Too pricey for the food offered. My fish tacos were bland and on the wrong kind of tortilla than I ordered.

    Cielito Lindo Mexican CuisineResponded on May 25, 2022We apologize for the lack of transparency about the special Cinco de Mayo menu! In the future, we will make sure that our special menus for holidays are clearly conveyed on OpenTable. Moreover, we are sorry that your server was unaccommodating when you asked to be provided with a kids menu. We strive to put our customers' needs first and will instruct our staff to be accommodating when faced with similar situations. We appreciate your feedback and hope that you will give us another chance soon!

    The food is always very good, but for the second time the service was terrible. My husband and I ordered an appetizer and 2 fajitas. Everything came out very slowly. When we got our fajitas, we had to ask for our condiments and tacos. They brought the condiments but only one taco and no beans or rice. Because this is the second time this has happened, we will not return!!

    We heard great things but were disappointed. Dinner took a long time and our enchiladas came out lukewarm and we had to send them back. The red enchilada sauce was more like Italian gravy than Mexican sauce, which was odd and not particularly appetizing. Won’t be returning.

    Unassuming place serving excellent Mexican cuisine. More like the places I find in CA and AZ ie more Mexican than American in style. Service was helpful and near perfect. It's byob but they make a good margaritas mix so bring your tequila and Cointreau.
