Deeply Disappointed

My family ate at La Sandia at around 7:30 on a Friday night. We chose it because it was the only restaurant in the mall without a waiting list (i.e., Coastal Flats had a one-hour wait). Not only were we seated immediately, but there were many empty tables. This should have been a clear indication of what to expect. The atmosphere was severely lacking (we could very well have been sitting in a fastfood restaurant), but what was most disappointing was the food, which was bland and uninspiring. The guacamole appetizer was the only tasty dish (although not worthy of $9.50 for such a small amount). One dish ordered was the Baha Tacos for $14. The beer-battered tilapia tasted as if it had been frozen and not prepared to order, and it was topped with stringy slaw (which made the taco messy and difficult to eat) and flavorless sauce. The accompanying rice and beans were equally bland. We were forced to incorporate flavor to our dishes by adding salsa. As for service, it was slow (strange considering how few customers were present). The food was definitely not worthy of the prices. Will never again frequent this restaurant.
