    Spacious, festive and trendy indoor and outdoor atmospheres that are sure to captivate and be your new place to be seen while enjoying fresh, authentic Mexican cuisine made in-house. With the smell of savory flavors filling the air, La Vida is not a place to pass up...Equal parts delicious as it is decadent, the cantina offers the complete package.

    The food here is A-W-E-S-O-M-E ! I went for wine Wednesday (Half off a glass of wine) and it was a great experience! No wait time it was packed and we still didn't wait to be seated, we had the option to sit in or outside. Very spacious, loved the scenery, had a lot of heaters outside, totally warm.  The customer service was exceptional!

    This place has a beautiful and well-stocked bar and the restaurant is huge! They need a lot of space because the place was"hopping" last night. Happy Hour was so fun with live music and fantastic Mexican Food. It's definitely a step up from our usual local Mexican restaurant... The food is really delicious.

    Went here for a friends surprise birthday party and was surprised by the amazing food and ambiance. The service is amazing, the servers are very attentive and the food is just to die for. They have a great happy hour menu and they don't hold back on the alcohol. I would highly recommend this place to all my friends and family.
