Booking +Service was great, food came super fast. Food prices were very fair.

Drink prices were a bit steep in my opinion.

Haven’t been to many restaurants the last year and so I wasn’t sure what kind of experience we would have. We were seated inside, upstairs and it was safe and quiet. Our server Mario was amazing. Very friendly and super helpful. The food at Chula is always yummy.

The food is not fresh. It seems like they prepare it a day in advance and just warm it up . This is the second time I try their food and it’s not impressive at all 😕.

Amazing taverna experience. Food outstanding not sure how another reviewer could call food bland???? Silly. Highly recommended. Definitely do the patio. This is seriously good Mexican taverna food.

The upper patio was cute and the food was delicious. Be forewarned that the margarita comes in a regular glass just like any other cocktail (slight disappointment) and everything in the bathrooms seemed broken (faucet, TP holder, paper towel holder). Not too loud. Not a complaint, but I think it'd be nice if they supplied wet napkins as both the tacos and burritos were messy to eat. It was a nice touch for them to turn on the heaters after sunset as it got chilly.

The ambience and the service was awesome.
The food selection was pretty good too.

But the food itself we found it was very bland. I think you can improve on that for sure. It looked good, but the taste was not authentic enough and missing the actual flavours.

Tacos were all cold by the time they got to our table. Not sure if they meant to serve them cold? But everything was salad-temperature. Took away from any flavors.

Churro with ice cream layers for dessert came melted. It was more of an ice cream soup by the time it arrived.

Overall they were short staffed and I believe this impacted the kitchen and how quickly food got to our table.

Would not go back

This was the most disappointing experience we’ve had. We called to let them know that we were running late, they informed us they have a ten minute grace period. Totally reasonable. We would be considered on a first come first served basis on arrival. We arrived 15 minutes late, were told that our reservation had been cancelled, and that they couldn’t seat us. We walked outside and looked on open table and there was availability for our party of 5. We walked back in, and were seated right away??? The service and management were unreasonable and this is despite us calling and being upfront about our timing. I will never go back.

Felt a bit rushed and I think the staff are rushed too. Our table had not been wiped down and we had to request it after we sat. Staff were apologetic. Otherwise overall good experience and good service. Food is fine. I think they can improve on the basic margarita but the mango habanero margarita was quite good.

Extremely loud. We were sat directly under a speaker on the patio so it was hard to hear the entire time.

The food was ok. The margaritas were not my favourite. My partner ordered a beer several times and after each order the waitress would come back saying they didn’t have it. It took a few tries until he finally got one All in all, it wasn’t bad, it just didn’t blow me away.

Just not a lot to say.

Was my birthday, they didn’t go out of the way to do anything for it. We asked to be on the patio but said they wouldn’t have the space as they had reservations which I had made.

A truly fantastic dinner! The patio is large and very nice and covered with a moveable canopy that they opened and closed as the sun moved- so attentive to detail! The food was wonderful- everything we ate was fantatsic. The street corn and Calamari were next level. The tacos were so great and I love that you can order them individually so you can try lots. And the churro sundae is seriously special. Wow.
I can't wait to find an excuse to eat there again!!!

We were left alone a bit too long after we first arrived, but once the server knew we were there she took good care of us. The food was tasty and the drinks were cold and delicious. We did find it a bit warm but we were on the rooftop patio and they can't control the weather.
