Went for date night with the bestie and Antojo's did not disappoint! The food was excellent and the margaritas were divine but what really made the night was the service. Liz was our gal and she was THE BEST! She also gave great recommendations on tacos and cocktails. We will definitely be back!!

My daughter & I, along with 6 year old grandson went for dinner. The food was awesome but was so loud you couldn't hear yourself think. Some people are just ---so rude. I'd love to see something on the menu that would be a variety of authentic Mexican menu.. Food was great---fed grandson pizza afterward and our waiter---second time we've had him was a true pleasure!

Yes, I would recommend this restaurant to a friend. They need to indicate the spiciness of food more clearly, as not everyone can handle spicy dishes. The drinks were interesting and different. The decor is lovely and inspiring. The prices were reasonable especially if you include a few drinks.
Overall a unique experience away from the everyday fare other restaurants offer. The gave us a free dessert as a birthday treat which was very nice.

Love this place! Love the vibe! Food is always excellent. It would appear that they were short-staffed the day we were there...one poor girl waiting on quite a few tables including a big party. As a result, it took a while to place our order because the waitress was also responsible for collecting the money and each person at the big table had their own separate bill. The wait was definitely worth it though!

I spent my dirty 30 with great company at Antojo Tacos and it was amazing. The service was top knotch and the waitress went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and having fun. She was very knowledgable of the tequilas, made great food and drink recommendations and was very helpful. Even when they made a mistake on our order and it was taking longer to prepare, they went beyond expectations to satisfy us by bringing us a tequila shot sample to try. If you are looking for a relaxing place for your friends and good authentic Mexican food, definitely recommend trying Antojos. I will be back again!!

You must go if you haven’t yet! My favourite Mexican eatery in Hali. Fresh quality ingredients presented beautifully!
The only negatives are they don’t serve brunch anymore but the online menu still shows it and they apparently are having troubles importing grasshoppers and cactus, which we were excited to eat. Hopefully that gets worked out quickly or they make the necessary updates, so customers don’t arrive with false expectations.

Visited for my birthday celebration with a small group of friends. Upon arrival, we were kindly greeted by the staff. We were seated at a table suitable for four (four seats) for a reservation made a week prior for a party of five, which was slightly annoying. We were given plenty of chips (on the saltier side) and salsa, the appetizers and entrees were delicious, and we were given free desserts/tequila shots to celebrate my birthday, which was kind. The major problem was the time factor, as we waited a while for the drinks, entrees, dessert, and the bill. We arrived at 6:30 and did not leave for over two and a half hours, which was a long time to crunch five people in at a four person table. Normally, this would not be an issue; however, we were attending a concert and wanted to be on time. Hopefully, in future reservations you can be more efficient/speedy.

Everything was wonderful except that we waited far too long for our food and sat next to a guest who was doused in perfume that was so strong we could actually taste it! To compensate for our wait for food, we were given a 15% discount on our bill but we are already Neptune members so would have gotten that anyway.

Reserved table was not available for 30 min after we arrived then we had to go back and ask to be seated while walk ins were being seated. We had to go look for a server, the food was way over cooked and meat was very fatty. Server was MIA for 25 minutes we had to flag her down again. There were empty tables so it was not crazy busy.

This was my 3rd or 4th time at Antojo and the service this time around was very slow... we opted for the bottomless tortilla deal and it took a very long time to get the food, let alone the “bottomless” tortillas. I feel the tortillas should have been ready quicker than they were for this special. Waitress was very friendly however and food was still delicious.

My wife and I love this restaurant. We have been there a number of times and I can say it is among our top places to dine in Halifax.

On the particular night, the food was excellent but they didn’t have the staff to properly service their patrons. This is the only time where service has been off.

This place has a great vibe, the food is authentic yet there is something for less adventurous palates as well. The staff are excellent, they are a big part of the experience. The music is great, the crowd is bustling. It is a great spot to go with a group of for a fun night out. It is not for a quiet, intimate dinner.

Great food, but the service left a lot to be desired. Drinks took a solid 30 minutes, food was well over an hour, and 40 minutes after I ordered they told me that they had run out of my main and asked me order something else.

Again, the food is top notch, but the servers seemed to be in absolute chaos.

The only remark is we arrived about 15 minutes early from the basketball game. We had reservations. The waitress told us to go have a beer next door. We said it was too cold out and we'd just wait. If I were the Manager I would suggest early customers to have a drink at Antojo's bar instead of sending them away. Other people arriving were told the same thing and they left. The door was open and no one was aware you didn't open until 5:00. Not great for customer service and/ or revenue.

Other than this it's always delicious food and a fun experience.

Disappointed that Happy Hour is no longer on Friday night. Also, happy hour prices are no longer 1/2 price for margaritas. Charging $1 for extra nachos at the table is silly.

This being my third time and yes still very satisfied overall.The service the ambiance were excellent.I believe because of where we were sitting the sound level (music volume) did not prevent us from enjoying
a good conversation,thank heaven.
I know that the corn tacos are not toasted and are to be on the soft side.I prefer them to be a bit less soft
and chewy .I mentioned this to our server and she very kindly toke this seriously and suggested that next
time upon giving my order I request this love of a less soft and chewy taco.I felt she did this in a very
professional manner.
I will return,thank you.
