Wonderful tasting Mexican food. Received complimentary chips with cheese quesadillas when we were seated, along with an amazing lentil soup. I had the chicken tacos. Fresh, tasty, with cilantro and fresh salsa. Service was a tad slow, but the food was outstanding. Highly recommend.

Every time I dine at La Seranata de Garibaldi, I am reminded of home---Mexico City, Mexico. And I just have to say, that this is as close to authentic as it gets up in these parts, my friends. From their freshly cooked, earthily-delicious old world...More

You will enjoy a totally different kind of Mexican Cuisine at this beautiful East Los Angeles restaurant! Fight over the fish puff pastry...or if you don't like to fight order two. This is seriously good food!
