About Us

 

Azul Latin Kitchen opened July 24, 2014 in Heavenly Village. ¬†Brought to you by the Tahoe Restaurant Group, we are the sister restaurant to Basecamp Pizza Co, also in the Heavenly Village. ¬†We offer a “lighter, fresher and healthier” take on Mexican and South and Central American cuisine. We are committed to using local, organic, and sustainable products whenever possible to provide the highest quality foods to our customers. Don’t forget about our drinks, which consist of a variety of tequila and non-tequila options, and are made with fresh-squeezed juices instead of mixtures.

We have live music daily on the Heavenly Corner Stage (weather permitting). Click here for the music schedule.

Azul Latin Kitchen FAQ

Hosting Information

Do we take reservations?
We do not take reservations and are a first come, first serve restaurant. We will consider a total restaurant buy out (minimum of 50 people) during off peak times. April-May (not including Memorial Day weekend) and October-November (not including Thanksgiving weekend). The pricing is dependent on sales projections.

Please keep in mind we do not split checks and will accept up to 4 methods of payment. 18% Gratuity is added to parties of 6 or more.

For smaller group advice or information on how our waiting list works, please read the wait list information below.

For further questions feel free to e-mail azultahoe@gmail.com, with the date, time and desired amount of people for suggestions. Expect a reply within 2 business days.

What is your large group policy?
We can seat groups of 8 or under together regardless of wait time. For groups larger than 8 we may need to split you up into smaller groups in order to get your group seated in a timely manner. Your group may not be seated next to or near each other and may not be seated at exactly the same time, although we will do our very best to do so. During busy season, expect a lengthy wait for large groups.

For groups over 8, a great suggestion is coming in close to opening at 11:00 am, before we have a wait, or ordering take out. Keep in mind we do not split checks and will accept 4 methods of payment. 18% gratuity will be added to groups over 6.

How does the wait work? Will you call me when our table is ready or text?
We have a wait list system that will TEXT you when your table is ready. A confirmation text will be sent within 2 minutes of you checking in. Tahoe has very poor service when town is congested, so please alert us if you have not received your text. You can reply “on my way,” and we will wait for your return for up to 7 minutes. You must check in to our waiting list in person. Always check in close to your quoted time…technology isn’t always reliable!

What kind of wait can I expect on the weekends, Holidays and busy season?
We go on extremely long waits after 2:00 pm during busy season. High season is considered June to mid September and December to April. Wait times vary from preference of seating, inside/outside/first available/heater/shade, group size, and time of check in. Waits can exceed 2 hours. However, if you plan ahead and check in early, you can fill that time with the fun destinations around us. There are a lot of shops, activities, bars and waiting areas around the village.

Do you have any “Open” seating sections?
Our bar is open seating and is a great option to get in and out.
