Food was terrible - tacos came with no toppings just the meat and tortilla

Very bad experience overall

Great food and generally good service, their alcoholic drinks are a bit pricy. But the food is outstanding and reasonable. Went twice while in Toronto and would go again when back in toronto!

My wife and I had gone for a date. We were expecting the food to be outstanding. We are vegetarians. So we asked our server for options.We selected 2 mains out of the options he gave. Turns out the 2 dishes were made with the same sauce. The server forgot to mention that to us. The food was sub par.

Overall my experience was good but the service was slow. It wasn't extremely busy when we went and it seemed like our server forgot about us. Other than that the food was great!

Have been many times before and it’s actually a favourite. Service today was a little off and inattentive, food while tasty was lukewarm (my guess is it sat out for a while), took way too long to get the bill at the end and then another long wait for payment. Hopefully this was just a one-off bad night

I have not been to a Milagro in quite some time...been to Mexico and Spain so was looking forward to it. The menu seems more simplistic than what I recall over 5 years ago...but overall good...

I ordered a fish entree and asked for potato’s, rice and tortilla to be removed and subbed with a salad. They wanted to charge 26$ for the dish and a surcharge for the salad of 3$. This was a disappointment, they did end up not charging for the salad but the fish and salad were bland. First and last time going to this restaurant.

Very cute restaurant. The food was good quality and i would go back. The only complaint would be that there was confusion and lack of clarity around some of the orders - ie. Taco Tues sounded like you get two tacos (of whichever choice) with your order...not two orders of two tacos. I would ask that moving forward, If a table of 3 ordered 12 tacos plus guac and other stuff..maybe ensure they understand how many they're ordering?

Took 10 minutes for a host to come to the host station. Waiter and waitresses kept walking past but no one greeted us. Once we were seated it took way to long to get waited on. It’s to bad because the food was pretty good but the services was horrible

This is the best authentic Mexican food anywhere in the city. Everything is made from scratch and has perfect flavor! The margaritas are real!!! Not from a mix... The Chicken Mole will take you to another universe!

We arrived a little earlier than our reservation time but were able to be seated promptly with no issues. Service was quick and attentive and our server was very patient with us while we struggled to navigate through the very large menu — so many delicious options, it was near impossible to make a decision! I finally settled on an enchilada and it was absolute heaven. You know when you’re very full but you cannot being yourself to stop eating because it’s THAT good? Yeah. They also have a pretty decent cocktail menu but we did not indulge as we were catching a show at Second City after dinner and wanted to pace ourselves for the evening. All around great experience and I will for sure be returning.

Food was good.. small portions for price. Drinks were pricey and barely any alcohol in them. Paying more for the atmosphere which was nice and chill. Nice decor inside. 3/5 in my book.

They forgot about us I think? Tacos were okay but not as special as we hoped they would be, but maybe we didn't order correctly. Either way, we hoped for a little more guidance from our server and didn't get any... And we made reservations but they couldn't seat us in a nice spot.... Hmmm...

The food was good, and maybe we should have read the menu better, but we ordered tacos...and that’s all we got! Two small tacos on a tiny plate! We waited for about 40min for them to cook our food and when it finally came out, we were less than impressed that that was all we got. It literally took us three min to eat our meal—by the time our server came around to see how everything was, we were done and were asking for the check!

The fact that it took so long to cook and they were so tiny was disappointing, but next time, we’ll do much better at scrutinizing the menu.

(Over $80 for a lunch for 2 without Alcoholic Drinks). I left the restaurant feeling hungry, my shrimp taco order was unimpressive and not filling for the outrageous price. I'm truly disappointed since I brought a co-worker out for a birthday lunch and felt embarrassed I chose this restaurant. Even though I work less than 5 minutes from the restaurant - I would not go back or recommend. I want my money back $$$ for the bad taste I was left with.
