    The food portions have been reduced significantly. I’ve always ordered tacos and I was surprised to get half of the beef portion compared to what I got last time, which was only a couple of weeks ago. Everything else was just as great as always.

    We loved our Valentine’s family dinner. The food was great as always, and when I asked if they could make me a drink (Mexicola) that used to be on the menu, they made it perfectly even though they didn’t stock the ingredients anymore. The YYC hot chocolate fest hot chocolate was amazing too. We left with 2 roses gifted to us by the restaurant. Awesome experience, amazing service. Will be back for sure.

    Fantastic food and excellent service. Love the vibe, a Calgary twist on the classic Latin America cantina. It might be a bit noisy for a romantic date night, but its the perfect spot to meet up with a group of friends to share some delicious taco platters and conversation. 100% recommend!

    We highly recommend this place to our friends!!. It's challenging to find a 100% complete experience in one location, and Gringo Street achieves just that. Andre and his wonderful team always make us feel at home. The service is consistently top-notch, personalized, and the food is incredibly delicious, offering a unique gourmet touch of Latin flavor. The drinks are delightful, and you must try the Gringitos shots. We often visit with our son, and it's always fantastic. We've celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, work events, and we love it! We wholeheartedly recommend this place, a big thanks to everyone: Andre, Raúl, Adrián... a truly amazing team that exudes teamwork!

    Went here for a girls night out and we really enjoyed ourselves. Food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Our server was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the menu. She came around just often enough to be helpful but not so much that it felt intrusive…. Perfect

    We had already popped in once to have drinks on the patio but I had not been there for food. So we planned a date night to eat. We both had the steak and it was so delicious. The chimichurry was the perfect balance of garlic, salt and herb. And of course the drinks were amazing as always. Can’t wait to come back.

    The margaritas were not a hit as they had very little flavour, so I'd pass on those. But the queso fundido, the tacos and the churros were very delicious and would go again for those!

    Thank you for your feedback! We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the queso fundido, tacos, and churros. We appreciate your honesty about the margaritas, and we'll work on improving the flavor. We look forward to serving you again, and we'll strive to make your next visit even more enjoyable.

    It’s started off really bad, waited forever to get our first drinks even water. The service wasn’t great at all which is disheartening because I used to love Gringo Street. Food was ok. I think our waiter tried to make it up to us with a free shot at the end which was nice of him, overall not sure if we plan to go back any time soon.

    We're sorry to hear about the disappointing start to your visit. We appreciate your honest feedback and understand your concerns about the service. We're glad to hear that your waiter tried to make amends with a free shot, but we understand your hesitation to return. Your comments will be taken into account as we work on improving our service. We hope you might give us another chance in the future to provide a better dining experience.

    Went to Gringo Street for date night. Found the menu very limiting. My husband had the Churrasco, which was rare instead of the requested medium rare, and a Pina Colombia. I had the Patacon with side salad and a very warm Margarita. With all the dining options in the city, we likely won’t return to Gringo Street - the food was just average
