Great food, great service, nice friendly atmosphere, our waitress was amazing, very personable and knowledgeable - as a former waitress (and another at the table), we were very pleased with the service!

We always celebrate on Cinco de Mayo. The service and our server were the best. Very prompt and went above and beyond on a very busy day. Food was delicious. We also had a great seat in a booth just on the far side of he bar, it was very comfortable, great atmosphere and view.

Let me begin with the good. The food was delicious! The service on the other hand was probably some of the worst I’ve experienced in the city. It was about 75minutes before one spec of food hit our table. You would think that if the kitchen was running behind there would be an attempt to keep the drinks flowing and bring out some nachos however our waitress was MIA for the most part. We were served one drink from the bar before our food started to arrive. Also the appetizers and the mains all appeared at the same time with the exception of the tacos that my husband and I ordered which arrived about 20 minutes later, after the rest of our party was done eating. They did take our first and only round of bar service off the tab but it was a too little too late at that point.

Delicious food and great atmosphere! The tequila flights are fantastic! The food was quick though our starters came with or after our mains which was a bit odd. However, no complaints about the flavour or quality of the food. Our group lingered for quite a long time at our table and we never felt pressured to leave. Great experience overall!

We were given no menus when we were seated and when we were finally given menus we were given 3 for a party of four. We were given 3 glasses of water as well for a part of four and told there were no more clean glasses. A fourth glass was finally brought to the table after 10 mins had gone by. Our main meal came before our appetizers and when we brought this to the servers attention he told us the appetizers would be complementary but thay was not the case when we got the bill. We were charged for the appetizers. Food was mediocre at best.

Food was excellent! Staff was awesome! Drinks were superb! I really wish when restaurants created atmosphere (as this place has really done visually) they would consider the the sound environment as well. It was so loud in there we couldn't talk to each other or the server and we arrived at 5:15 before the crowds. A very low fan rattled over our heads and music and very smooth reflective services had us all struggling to relax. I hope this great place considers some acoustic treatments and quieter fans to make it more fun to eat there!

We had a fantastic meal here.

We loved the decor of the restaurant, the service was great and we thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered.

A few people warned us about the pricing, but we thought that the quality of the food and the atmosphere was worth the price.

The crafted cocktails were delicious. Would highly recommend the Antojo Margarita and the Silver Mule.

We can't wait to go back.

The tacos were delicious as usual! It was taco Tuesday (my first visit at this time) so, excellent value and I could try a variety of tacos. It was very busy and we did wait for a while for the tacos- that would be the only negative, although I do feel the staff were somewhat attentive and the delay was because the restaurant itself was so busy and full! That is the sign of good food, but perhaps expect a little longer wait on Taco Tuesdays.

A drink and desert to celebrate, i didnt expect that and it was a nice "touch". I have expressed my positive comments to friends and my family. We will come back, again and again. Thanks.

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!!
