Very disappointed in this spot. Was very excited for a great cocktail and was not impressed. My bf and I both got different cocktails and they were both watered down and sour. The server replaced my cocktail with vodka-cran and the ice tasted like the ice machine had not been cleaned out for ages. The service was very slow and unfriendly. We had to seat ourselves and waited to be acknowledged for another 20 min. and our wait for just two cocktails was another 15 minutes. The place was not busy and by the end our waiter was no where to be found. Overall, a disappointing bar find in Costa Mesa.
This is a great spot, worthy of 5 stars, but there are a couple of places they come up short. They advertise live music which is mainly, if not the only reason I go to Landers. The area the artist performs, the stage if you will… is blocked from view of almost anybody eating or drinking in the place. It’s like they put a bank vault to hold up the roof in a couple of spots where an artist is supposed to perform. It’s not ideal. The sound is a little off as well. I don’t know anything about sound engineering, however, I do know I couldn’t hear a word of the artist’s between song dialogue and several people around me at a few of the shows complained that the sound person didn’t know what they were doing. A couple of them wondered out loud if there even was a sound person. I can say it didn’t sound great, and the artists didn’t seem to be the issue with the lack of sound quality. Glad they’re doing what they’re doing, but they need to polish a little of how they do it I think.
My first time dining here and what great experience. Very casual environment, my server Ian was fantastic. I had the BLT and highly recommend. They are also dog friendly. I will be back! Thanks Ian.
My go to for everything. First dates, bdays, Friyays. Love their drinks, food and ambiance
