    My daughter told us about this restaurant that is on her bucket list to try . Everything was delicious. We tried Baja fish taco, Carne Asada taco, and Crispy avocado taco. We also took Mango bean salad with tortillas chips. For dessert a Churro cheesecake. It was our first time and we shall return again. I sent a message to my daughter and told her the food was excellent. So she said : good to know. We will definitely will try Eldorado Tacos. Service was great.

    If you’re looking for something to Taco-bout, look no further. A classy yet vibrant aesthetic, the food is flavourful, expansive mixed drink selection and authentic staff. The venue is a solid date spot if you’re looking for Mexican cuisine. Crowd is dressed nicely and there is great ambience for late dinners. Truthful drink recommendations from our server and you see the bartender masterfully craft them behind the bar. Started with the queso dip, had great cheese and beefy flavour with just the right amount of spice. Would recommend splitting tacos with your date - can try a wide variety as you order by taco. Favourites were the Baja fish and pineapple pulled pork (great textures and fresh flavours/aromatics). The least favourite was the carne asade (sauce was too sweet and steak wasn’t tender enough for a clean bite). Had the churros for dessert and they were perfectly crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside with a flavourful dolce de leche for dipping. Would highly recommend to go with someone you’re already seeing, but not for a first date since tacos are inherently a little messy. If I had to rate this place, I’d give it a 9.1.

    The waitress was amazing and the ambiance great. Food was very good. Love the nacho appetizer and most of the tacos were good except for the steak taco. The beef was very tough. The churro cheesecake was very good.

    Tavis were very tasty! Nachos were bigger than expected and great. They were very busy so service was a bit slow. My main complaint is the way too loud music, it made it hard to talk or even order when our server came by.

    From the moment we arrived we felt rushed. Our food arrived, the presentation was okay however the food was bland and just lifeless. The other guests had requested not spicy. After the first bite my guests lips felt on fire and the other guest found it tasted awful and could not eat it. They did not charge for the the taco that was not eaten. I went there based on the great things I had heard about the place but would not recommend them.

    Even though I made a reservation with more than a week in advance, when I got there they didn't have a nice table or a booth for me and just placed us in the only table available. When I asked if we could be placed in a booth they told me that those were only for people that made reservations, then I told them I made a reservation and they were like "yeah, sorry, they're all taken". Our order came wrong but we didn't bother to ask them to change it as we just wanted to leave. The man that was serving us was very nice and apologized for the table issue, but there was this brunette waitress that was a bit rude and we felt like she couldn't care less about providing us with a good experience. It was supposed to be our late Valentines celebration but we ended up staying in the restaurant for less than 1 hour as it wasn't the most pleasant experience. The food was also OK. I had high expectations based on their photos and prices, but got disappointed. Overall, I can say it was an expensive and not enjoyable experience. Don't plan to go back there or recommend it to friends.

    Great dinner at eldorado. Good atmosphere (although the kitchen lights take away from it), our server was great, the food was mostly great except the pulled chicken taco (chicken was so bland and it looked like regular rotisserie chicken), the pulled pork taco was good and so was the fish. The cheesecake was seriously lacking something sweet or acidic, we added caramel from the churros to it and it was much better. The margaritas were great and the bar was really fast considering how busy they were with drinks. Will return
