When I hear the word Gourmet, I expect a lot. Nice atmosphere and friendly service. Food is just average.

Nice little hole in the wall in downtown Yakima. The service was fair yet the food lacked taste. A bit on the spendy side with mediocre service.

Family owned and operated with an owner that can fill in at the kitchen and manage to work his way around the resturant to make everyone feel welcome. Make sure you have his award winning Chilli con conqueso appetizer while you study the menue. Fish taco's are our personal favorite.

First, our waitress seemed a bit put out that we came in maybe 30 minutes before closing. I get it but at least fake it til ya make it. Their salsa & chips were ok but the salsa was extremely watery. Feeling a little rushed to make a decision I went with their signature dish whose name I can't recall... More

Huge selection of tequilas. We just had a Margarita. We got the double but I couldn't really see there was more alcohol in the shot glass. Oh well. Chips and salsa came with the meal. We ordered an appetizer of fresco (ftesh) guacamole. It cost about twice the regular guacamole. We were told the fresh version is made on the... More

I used to frequent Santiagos at the old place before it burned down. After years away, I'm glad to see they've kept most of the old menu. Not that I can really give an honest appraisal; all I ever order is the fish tacos.
