As a Mexican-Canadian I can say that is hard to find a restaurant like Colibris. Exquisite AUTENTIC Mexican. A must go restaurant.

To us Los Colibris is a hidden gem in the city. I have never seen it empty so it is well known, but I don't think it yet has the status of some restaurants in Toronto where you know it when you hear the name. Too many people I tell about the restaurant have never heard of it. This is a pity because it stands against some of the best restaurants in Toronto in our humble opinion. The dishes appear "simple" and "uncomplicated" but the flavours are anything but simple and uncomplicated. The depth of flavour that is in each dish is outstanding. We have now eaten at Los Colibirs about 5 times and it has never disappointed. Now, regarding the service - they do a great job at raising the level of service you receive. Your service is attentive but not invasive if you know what I mean. There are eyes on your table all the time and they know just when to approach. Great restaurant, great food, great experience - always. Well done Los Colibirs TEAM!

Two of the four of us are chefs. Although the menu sounded interesting, we thought it was totally over rated.
None of the food was hot.
Tamales were dry and overcooked
Ceviche was just raw shrimp not even slightly "cooked" by the citrus. Sauce had NO citrus flavour.
Tortilla soup was even disappointing!
Altogether I'm amazed at it's rating.
On top of that the person we phoned to say we would be 15 or so minutes late did not even pass it on to the reservation desk.
The restaurant itself is quite beautiful.

We have enjoyed dinning at the restaurant in the past. But the service was disappointing this time. First the server brought the order for the next table. Then we waited for an hour for the food to be ready. Since this was a pre-concert dinner,we had to rush out of there.

The place needs a little TLC. Menus were grungy, seating had lots of spots on it and bathroom very smelly.
Food was good - but the above did take away from the experience.

The food was bland and room temperature. We informed the server about allergens, and still encountered those allergens in our meal, leading to a spoiled evening.

There were 4 of us in our group and we were going to the theatre after the meal. Service was excellent and the Marg's were imaginative and tasty. The shrimp ceviche was delicious. Definitely a return visit is in order.

The food was unexpectedly delicious. I had my doubts about dining in the theatre district but I had seen the chef de cuisine on top Chef Canada and she did such interesting cooking but I wanted to try the restaurant. The food exceeded expectations very delicious. A great modern take on traditional Mexican food.

The food was delicious. It was our first meal there, and the waiter's suggestions were helpful and right on. We were not crowded in the room where we were seated, so conversation was easy. So many restaurants are too noisy. Nice decor--I liked the deep-red walls.

The restaurant is tastefully decorated. We had a reservation and were seated right away. The venue was full but the tables are far enough apart that you could carry on a conversation. The main course was fine but not as tasty as I thought it would be. The churros and ice cream was a nice finish to the meal. The menu was a bit more limited than I anticipated but I should have done more research before making the reservation. The service was great!

The location is great for several near by theatres and music venues. Great guacamole and other dishes. We found sharing several appetizers and a salad left room for dessert - the carrot cake was delectable! Our server was attentive, without being intrusive and made sure we were out well in time for the theatre. Ambiance was very nice, not overly loud, good for conversation.

We saw Elia on Top Chef Canada last week and decided to try out her restaurant. It was AMAZING! The stuffed poblano pepper with walnut sauce (a family recipe apparently) was unexpectedly sweet and was hands-down the most delicious thing I've eaten in ages. We also had the daily ceviche (shrimp), the mushroom empanada, and the duck enmoladas - all so good. At the end of the meal, Chef Elia came out to say hi to her nerdy Top Chef fans. It was a terrific experience, and I definitely recommend Los Colibris.

Glad we had reservations because the place was packed by 6pm. Food was delicious and fresh. Service was attentive and well informed. Less than a block from the princess of Wales and around the corner from Marvish theatre. Nice wine list and open, modern fine dining atmosphere. Sister Mexican pub/restaurant downstairs had a great atmosphere. Dark and moody with some unique margaritas, it was worth going down early for a quick drink before dinner.

My wife and our friends were extremely satisfied with every aspect of this restaurant. We chose it as it was lose to the theatre and absolutely every person on staff was outstanding from the greeter to all service staff! e really did feel comfortable and at home and then on top of that the food really was outstanding. Every dish suggested by our server was exactly as described...an unusual truth! We will certainly be back as the atmosphere and people were truly fantastic...and no I am not related to anyone there; I am from Niagara.

We went for the ceviche and were disappointed. It's one of those restaurants where they squeeze you in and sit you right next to your neighbours. High prices were not justified by the food, ambiance or service.

I was really, dearly hoping that this "upscale" Mexican restaurant would deliver food to justify its high prices, alas not the case. I've had streetside tacos with more flavour than the food on offer here. Nice plating for sure but flavour is sorely lacking and if you can't serve flavourful Mexican food you really are losing. Also the bartender here makes rhe worst margaritas. Disappointed that Los Colibris is just another tourist trap restaurant on King West.
