I booked this restaurant pre-theatre not knowing what to expect. Loved it...service was amazing, our table was a little near the kitchen so that wasn't great but otherwise loved the atmosphere, food and they got us out of there on time. Will go again for sure.

The food and service was excellent. The presentation of the food was also awesome. Wait staff were very attentive and helped us to make a decision for our meal. Would go back to Los Colobris again. Great food and good value for your money. Fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere.

We had a fine experience, but likely won’t return. Food was good, but menu was only in Spanish and there wasn’t a lot we were interested in. Our portions were small, but we split an appetizer, had an entree each and left the restaurant full but not weighed down. I consider that fine, but I’m also not able to give full marks for “value”.

The ambiance was great, calm and reasonable noise level so you could have a conversation with your party without being overpowered by those of others. The staff was very attentive, maybe overly so.

The men’s restroom was out of service at one point so I had to use the place next door (which was attached and likely also owned by the same operator) and my wife indicated the ladies room was mildly disturbing.

Overall I have to give 4 stars as it was a good experience, but not one we would be interested in enjoying again. If anything, the place next door looked more hip and was likely more our speed. This establishment strikes me as trying very hard to be cliche 5-star, is a little over-pretentious (no English menu), and falls a little south of the standard they have set for themselves as a result. Upon leaving, we could take a bit of a breath, shake off the act and consider where next for some fun.

I'm normally not fond of Mexican food and I don't associate it with delectable high-end cuisine. So we decided to check it out. Lovely experience. Great food and ambience. Understated but elegant decor. Knowledge servers and pleasant and attentive service. The stuffed pepper with walnut sauce was especially delicious. Great value for money.

We have been here about 20 times and each time is wonderful. Loved the oysters this time. One small grumble. When I asked if I could have a single cookie with my coffee, the answer was a resounding "no, we only sell them as a dessert grouping of 9 cookies". I think given that my average bill is $80 a time, one cookie with my coffee was not an excessive request.

My waiter should have gotten me a cookie! (do I sound whiny?)

Fantastic food and a lovely atmosphere. Delicious, fresh flavours in the tuna tostada and the salmon ceviche! Great for date night! Very aware of gluten-free requirements making the dinning experience that much better!

$20 for each vodka martini???? Really??? My friend and I were there pre Unique Lives at RTH. Last year when we ate at Los Colibris before each Unique Lives talk - we paid $12/martini. $20 and being told by our not too pleasant waitress that $20 was standard, really spoiled the dinner. We each had 2 martinis — so $40 each. When we complained they lowered the price to $16 each - sooo $32 each — $64 for us to have 2 martinis. What a rip off!!!

It had snowed quite a bit on the day that we went to the restaurant. The steps were very slippery, and we had to tread with caution. Once we were past that, we were treated well by the staff at the restaurant. They have plenty of vegetarian options to choose from. We went with the Guacamole and Tostadas for starters, the Vegetarian special of the day for the main course, and Panacotta for dessert. It isn't the traditional Mexican fare I have come to expect, but the flavors were brilliant. I would definitely go back for more.

We ordered from the $43 Winterlicious it was definitely worth the money. If we were to have ordered off the regular menu I would have found it tad pricey. Appetizers were slow coming out so we were given free guac and chips which was excellent recovery by servers. There was Birthday at our table they gave us delicious churro & ice cream dessert. I would go back for drinks and apps.

Had lunch with 3 other friends who all enjoyed themselves too. Atmosphere was nice. The Mexican theme was great and not over done at all. The food was quite good. We all had the winterlicious menu. Pulled pork tacos with habaneros was just spicy enough so you got that great flavour but not over powering or painful. Would definitely recommend to others and would go back again. Wish they served lunch outside of Winterlicious.

We were there for Winterlicious and wanted to try the restaurant. Only odd and disappointing thing -- all 3 first courses were chicken based. And and of 1 of the 3 second courses was chicken. Should have been called Chickenlicious!

The food was incredibly delicious, a definite step up from your standard Mexican fare. Both in terms of the types of flavour combinations as well as presentation, it absolutely elevated simple dishes into delicious and challenging indulgences.

I try to eat at Los Colibris any time I'm in Toronto - the food, service and ambience are always excellent. A rich interior space with a lovely bar area and ample seating, white tablecloths, muted lighting, dark wood surfaces - it's a contemporary interpretation of old-world sophistication. The menu is sublime, but I particularly like sharing the wonderful appetizers - gorgeous, fresh and citrusy ceviches with a hint of heat and velvety avocado, a variety of small hand-made empanadas with dark, mole-inspired sauces for dipping, spicy grilled shrimp on a bed of smooth corn puree. The whole menu is about perfectly matched tastes and textures - try the Tacos de Rajas Poblanas, confit chicken in a cream sauce dotted with sweet corn and flecks of roasted poblano chilis, dusted with panela cheese, which you can stuff into house-made flour or corn tortillas. As my dining companion said, who knew corn (the tortillas, the kernels nestled in cream and poblanos, the corn puree) tasted like this? If you want a delicious entree, try the Chiles en Nogata -a roasted, pork-stuffed poblano pepper with creamy walnut sauce and poblano rice. Ask the server to recommend wines - these flavours demand the right combinations - or, better yet, try a proper margarita or browse the tequila menu. Highly recommended.

Amazing service and guacamole! The atmosphere is great for a small get together, very intimate atmosphere but casual. Los Colibris has coat check, booth seating, and it is a dinner resto that opens at 5pm.

The service at Los Colibris was superb to say the least. The waiters and waitresses were very attentive and very helpful with describing the dishes especially since my friend and I were not familiar with the authentic Mexican cuisine. Overall, it was a good experience.
