It was ok. I’m looking for an authentic Mexican restaurant and this wasn’t it. There were too many deep fried options and I found this made the menu very limiting.
Still ok though and the service was really great.

I checked this place out last day before our lockdown happened for the I don't know 10th time lol- it was a chilly day but their patio was so sufficiently heated and covered to prevent the air from coming in. Their tacos were yummy, zucchini fritters were delicious, but what I loved the most was how fresh & hot the churros were. Will come back once lockdown lifts! Thank you for the friendly service :)

Service was great! Initially gave us a seat on the downstairs patio but when we asked to go to the upstairs patio, they were nice and accommodated our request! Food and drinks were great! Outside patio vibe is vibrant and servers are good! Would definitely recommend especially if the tents are off during the summer.

Love the place, the music and the food. I would say it is inspired in Mexican food but it's not traditional Mexican food. Having said that it is still very delicious, the server was great and overall I would definitely suggest Chula.

This is a great place to have great service, the freshest fish tacos, guacamole, pico de gallo, ceviche washed down with delicious margaritas—that all look pretty and don’t break the bank. Enjoy the patio upstairs or downstairs or have a romantic meal inside dining. You’ll be spoiled for choice with the Mexican decor too.

The patio was clean , and all tables were divided by aesthetically pleasing bamboo barriers. The drinks were great and the food was really yummy !

The portion size for the desserts were a bit too much , but apart from that everything was on point .

Will highly recommend, especially for a weekday date.

Food arrived fast, outdoor seating was beautiful, socially distanced and warm. Place still felt buzzy and alive despite being spaced out. However apps arrived before our cocktails, and mains minutes after our apps while we waited for our wine. We decided to check in on the wine about 15 min into our apps as our mains were getting cold, the server apologized it seemed he had forgot to punch it in. They were quite busy so no biggie but would have been nice to have our wine with our mains while they were still warm.

Overall a wonderful experience. Although minus the fact that they give you a bottle of water for $1.00 instead of free or tap water in a glass due to Covid.

Pre-packaged plastic utensils is fine.

Food is delicious and the customer service is spot on.

The ambience was great. Inviting and cozy. You had your own little cabana with a heater above. If there was sand, you’d feel like you were eating on the beach. The prices are about what you’d find at most restaurants. The El Papi drink was really good. The service was great and staff offered good recommendations. Definitely make reservations. Going back for sure.

The food was very good and the service very friendly.
We appreciated the outdoor space setup to allow us to dine out (on the heated patio) during the pandemic. They are well organized to keep their patrons safe while having a good experience. We had a great evening!

The chips and guac was excellent as usual. Perfect salt on the chips.
And where else can one enjoy a great covered and heated patio away from the street.
Thanks Chula,

Amazing patio and great service. Good selection of drinks and food was very tasty albeit a bit on the pricey side and not many vegetarian options for entrees. Only thing I didn't like is that I didn't know we had a 90-minute limit on our table (note for next time: read the fine print of your reservation confirmation). So when my friend showed up late, we could only stay for an hour longer. Still, it's a great place that I would recommend....just make sure your friends show up on time!!

We were on the patio but it was a miserable day and raining slightly. The servers positioned us near the heat and put an umbrella up so we would be shielded by the rain but it was not ideal. The is a great patio when the weather is nice. The food was excellent and we felt bad that we were the only people there since the weather was not conducive to sitting outside. We have been there many times and always like the food and attitude of the staff.

Cute spot at Gerrard & Jones, amazing back patio. We were sat on the lower of the two levels and had an awesome time. The street corn is super great and the margaritas were fantastic. Our server was honesty the best, really funny and had perfect control of the table. Things came at the perfect time, we had new drinks seemingly the moment ours were done. We’d come back just for his service again :) You guys are doing an amazing job, thank you for being open during all the craziness and being so accommodating. Just to note, we also felt really safe with their safety protocols. :)
