Chicken Wings not the best, Fajitas small and not much add ons without guacamole, Mac and cheese pasta kinda soft. Service and Nachos was great. A nice place more for drinks and hang out with patio

Our experience was not the best due to the timing in receiving our meals. We order table apps and they were brought out at the same time as our meals, almost 40 minutes after we ordered. Then, only some of our party received their mains at a time, with a 5-10 minute period from start to finish. The people in our party were waiting for the tables food before starting so their meals were cold by the time we were all ready. Some of the portion sizes were quite small with the tacos we order and not worth 5$ each. The waitress did not check back in with us much at all so we didn’t have a chance to explain this at the time. 12 people dined and I don’t believe any of us will come back

Unfortunately, the day my friends and I visited the restaurant they were low on servers, staff, waiters and basically everyone. As a result, our service was horrific, our waiter did not know what he was talking about half the time, the lady manager was extremely rude, bartender rude to my friend, she went up to ask him a question and he said “he doesn’t have time for this”....to top it off, the website had false advertisement, we were all ready to pay the $30 brunch with bottomless mimosas, when we arrive they gave us another menu explaining that they have not yet been able to get the website from the previous owners, but I mean it was an overall disaster we agreed to stay with the new menu my food (the bday girl) never arrived, several of my other friends food never arrived, the restaurant has potential, perhaps if we came during a time when they had the right amount of staff it would’ve been better nonetheless, our visit was horrible

Service was slow and our server was inattentive. Small, overpriced tacos. Pork was on the drier side. A glass of sangria doesn't come with any fruit and is super super small. One person's food was about 5 mins later than everyone else. The fish taco was good and the patio is gorgeous.

Really good food. The service was terrible. Took 30 minutes to get our drinks. Than almost the same to order food. The manager said they were short staffed due to carabana . The manager did comp our desserts. We were also late for our concert even though we arrived early to eat. Would not go back.

3 generations came for dinner at 4:30pm. The grandmother (65) found the music too loud (as did the paents) and stools difficult to sit on. The grandchild (11) enjoyed the ambiance. Parents enjoyed the cocktails but found the tacos very small but tasty. I could see this place for an evening cocktail or too and their patio is big and beautiful

This place has a great patio and large dining room, great for large groups. We went as a group of 8 for brunch, prices are reasonable and food was good (eggs Benny in particular), portions were a bit too large for us though. The only disappointment was the amt of time the food/service took, there were maybe 10 tables at the time and it took about 40 min to get our breakfast. Usually service is much better, so perhaps they were just understaffed at the time.

Sweet patio. The tacos are shockingly small for $5.50 each. At that size they should be $2 each. The nachos were very very good otherwise.

Service was amazing! We were a family group of seven and our server, I believe it was Michael, gave us lots of attention and many suggestions. The manager was also at our table to check on our drinks a couple of times. The patio was large and open, tables not too close together. Drink selection was good, especially the creative mixed drinks. Food was okay. Tacos were small. Flatbreads were hard but had lots of toppings. Guac was tasty. This would be a great place for drinks and shared appetizers. We highly recommend the churros for dessert!

Food was simply mediocre. Everything was okay in terms of portions, EXCEPT the tacos - they were incredibly teensy for the price with next to no toppings. Half our table got their orders a good 10 mins before the other half which was awkward. Was nice to get a patio seat on a friday night, but I suspect it’s because it’s not very good. Likely won’t be going back.

The ambience and the customer service was absolutely amazing! The Manager and the hostess’ are amazing! The food did not match the customer service and the ambience at all. We ordered the Nachos for an appetizer and the beans they put on it were under cooked, there was very little cheese or dressings on the nachos and just for fun there were always snow pea sprouts (which are typically bitter). They are a Tex Mex restaurant and they did not have any choice of Salsa. We also ordered the tacos which sounded great but the flavors were underwhelming. When you think Mexican food you think foods filled with ground cumin, peppers, coriander and chilis, but there was a lack of flavor all around in the food. The jerk chicken taco had a red cabbage that was very bitter and masked the flavors of the chicken entirely. Everything came out with snow pea sprouts that truly did not have any business on every dish. I also ordered a Sangria that came with no fruit and the wine they used was bitter (not dry just bitter), it was about an 8 oz glass and cost ten dollars, which for Toronto is reasonable but the drink was not good at all. The plating of the food was beautiful.

It’s just sad that it’s raining today, they have a really nice patio! But since it’s raining we cannot go out there. Food was good, wish i could try brunch next time. Their taco is huge portion to me. Drink was nice, we ordered sangria, it was pretty light. But we didn’t wanna get drunk so. Service was awesome. All in all, it’s an amazing place to hang!

First time here and must say I absolutely looooved it. Service was a bit slow but it was really busy and hot out so its forgivable. Plus our server was super nice and apologetic which helped. Food was great we had the brunch menu with $2 refillable mimosas- ranchero burrito and the chorizo benny I would HIGHLY recommend either. Also I HIGHLY recommend the grapefruit mimosas. Beautiful patio with comfy benches and overhead fans made for a great long afternoon brunch with the girlfriends. I will definitely be back this summer more time than I probably should!!

Went to meet up with some friends for brunch. We were told he had to have a reservation to be seated, so we made a reservation while standing there (it wasn't booked up at all). Weird.

When we sat down our table was sticky, and it took us asking three times to have it wiped before it was actually cleaned. Our waitress splashed sauce all over my pants, shoes and jacket an pretended not to notice. Another highlight...

Food was ok (when we finally got it almost 1.5 hours after arriving), but service has really gone downhill.

Absolutely exceptional service, very comfortable seating outdoors with heaters (went for a birthday brunch on a cool spring afternoon), awesome casual environment for eating & drinking with a group of buddies. Portion sizes were on the small side for brunch - one person in the group left hungry.

Mimosas were warm boxed juice. Meals came half an hour apart for our table, and were mediocre at best. Only go for the patio and stick to beer if anything.

This is the second time I’ve been and service is really poor!! It was busy sure but the service is really lacking. Worst margarita on the rocks ... all lime no flavor I paid for the better drinks but I wasn’t impressed. The first time I was there the margaritas were better but this time they completely missed the mark

Fun environment with decent food however service was kind of slow.. they use to have a bottomless brunch deal that was amazing which is what we went for but they've gotten rid of it.. Other than that its a good spot if you're looking for a boozey brunch or somewhere to watch the game, they have good drink deals.

My friends and I visited for the $2 mimosa fill ups, but in retrospect it's really not that worth it unless you drink more than 4 mimosas. The eggs benny that I ordered were tasty, but the portion was incredibly small and doesn't seem to be worth $13. Our server was very attentive and friendly, which made our experience very pleasant. Overall a good place to visit, but not quite worth the prices.

Wings were good but thats about the only thing I was pretty satisfied with. The macho fries looked great but were average across the board. Cocktail I had was okay, and beer is beer, whatever. But the service was probably the most appalling part of this. The guy who seated me was odd and not welcoming but I brushed it off. Then our waitress was absent the entire night. It was difficult to order a second round of food and drinks and I had to signal someone for some help. Then when it came to paying for our food, our waitress finally came back trying to chat us up, but she was with another party for majority of the night. I should have left a much smaller tip but I feel empathy for servers and I tipped 20%, but I regret doing so. The price I paid for everything too was not worth it I feel either. This is pretty disappointing as I had high expectations and I have been meaning to take my girlfriend here for awhile too, but I will go elsewhere where my money will be spent better. Overall, I would give this place a 2/5 rating.

I went in the summer and it was great. Well, things have changed and I am not one to complain! The service was absolutely abysmal. We had four different servers and had to go get them every single time we required something. It put such a damper on the night. And there were maybe four other tables full. Brutal!
