La Carnita is situated in the Exchange district on what was once “Banker’s Row”. From 1905 to 2018 we’ve taken the former Bank of Toronto, and introduced our urban aesthetic . La Carnita is the spot to enjoy delicious tacos, a handful of churros, run through a mixtape, and wash it all down with a fresh cocktail or beer. Our aim is to serve up a dynamic menu, and connect with the community through our love of art & music.

    Was awful and won’t go back. Waitress seemed a touch uncomfortable with us, food was only ok, and the restaurant builds in a tip to the total as a ‘service fee’. $100 for two drinks, two small cobs of street corn and a few tacos. No thanks

    Great! Ambience was great. Food was good; personally I just prefer flour tortillas, but that should be irrelevant. Drinks were great!

    First time here. Everything was great - Cod Tacos were especially amazing. Prices were decent and we left very full. Servers were casual but super friendly and very fast. We had a really fun evening. Will definitely go back. Awesome restaurant. Highly recommend.

    We love La Carnita. Took my husband here for the first time and the food didn’t disappoint. Our waiter however.... terrible. He barely came around and was very distracted when waiting our table. He wasn’t able to answer any of our questions regarding the menu: example: we love the bean dip and it had been removed, we asked why and he stared at us like we were idiots. We asked about the spicy level of another item and he said he’d never tried it. He also brought us dirty glasses on TWO occasions. There’s more I could say but even i am tired of talking about it. Disappointment in staffing.

    Food was amazing! We had a variety of tacos, the nachos, street corn and Churros. Highly recommend all the food! Took friends here because they love tequila and are from out of town. They bought a few shots of the most expensive tequilas. The first one was served in a snifter glass and it completely ruined the shot. They ordered another of the same which was served in an appropriate glass and the taste was much better. They pointed out the error to the waitress who disagreed. However, the manager did agree that the snifter was the wrong glass. No compensation was given for the error. Otherwise, the manager was very personable and well versed in tequilas. We will definitely be back.

    The restaurant & food were good. I do have a little beef with Open Table Reservations. I have requested a highchair for our group as well as specified it was a birthday dinner. When we arrived and shown to our table, there was no highchair made available (I had to request it again) and there was no mention by the staff at La CArnita about the birthday.

    The menu was very limited and even more so since I have a shellfish allergy and they deep fry everything including the nachos in the same deep fryer as the shrimp. This meant I had only 3 or 4 tacos to choose from and nothing else on the menu. Very disappointing that with all the info about allergies they wouldn’t have a superset fryer

    This was our first visit, but it won't be our last! We tried an assortment of tacos and tostadas. Each one was excellent. I highly recommend the "In Cod we Trust" taco - delicious! The Carne Asada was also very good. Drinks were tasty, and the churros were a nice ending to a fabulous meal!

    The food was mediocre and not up to other similar Mexican food standards in Winnipeg - good service and ambiance though. The taco chips were odd - with some tasting ‘old’ and a lack of consistency in the texture/crunch. The dips were all very excellent. The tacos were ordinary and the shells were a little soggy. The beer and wine were great.

    Food and servers were excellent. The music was a little too loud, maybe where we were seated, so it was sometimes hard to hear each other. The menu is great, could maybe add some burrito options. We will definitely return.
