We were hoping for live music as advertised, this is the fourth time we have been to the place and no music, OK atmosphere, drinks a little pricy.!! They could and should do better.

I've been there before and the food is good. But on Friday night we booked a two seat for me and my wife. Once we arrived we noticed how busy it was. Patiently we waited at the door for someone to greet us. After 5-10 minutes of staff walking by us, staring, and continue to ignore us. Like they were thinking, someone else can get them. Then finally a man, who priir to greeting us was talking with the staff, right infront of us and ignored us. Finally came greeted us. He was shocked that we booked something on a Friday night. Said something along as oh you must have booked it right now. We booked it an hour prior before we drove there. Then he decided to just walk away. Us thinking he would find us a spot. He never came back. Unapologetic service. Almost like, how dare you book of a Friday night when we are so busy. As a former restaurant manager I am very sympathetic towards hospitality staff, but I also know when I'm being ignored and mistreated as a guest. I will never go back there again. They don't need my business and I sure don't need their services.

Cheers

Excellent ambiance and food. However, be prepared to wait! We booked for 8:30 via open table and didn’t get our table till 9:30 and chips and guacamole till 10:15... once we got our food.. it was delicious. Usually they are really good but not sure if it had to do with online booking even though I had spoken to them over the phone to confirm the reservation.

The food was amazing and authentic. Unfortunately they were short staff server wise and our service took forever. In the end it was well worth the wait.

I had an amazing experience at this restaurant. The atmosphere was above and beyond, really made me feel like I was on vacation, this had to be the best Mexican spot on all Toronto/GTA.
My server was perfect-friendly and gave good suggestions I think her name was corrina.
I highly recommend this restaurant, I look forward to going back!
The only reason why I didn’t give it full starts on service was a manager or owner came in and he seemed a bit aggressive or stressed out.

No complaints! You can tell the server has a passion for food & was quick to give you a mini history lesson about the culture of the food. Can’t wait to go back!

Overpriced for the amount of food you get and the taste is ok but not the greatest. I thought it was going to be amazing. Pitchers are way overpriced overall I think you can get more for your money elsewhere.

I had read reviews about the service and food being poor but I was naive and still gave it a shot. I had ordered nachos, asking for guacamole on the side and I assume our waitress forgot and it was plastered all over the nachos. To add, I received my drinks AFTER both my appetizers, as I had to remind my waitress that she had forgotten our drinks and she asked what we ordered again. My whole table ordered tacos and there was the bare minimum of toppings and choice of meat/fish in our tacos (70% tortilla shell). I asked specifically for NO cilantro on any of the food served at our table, yet there was cilantros in my tacos. My friend was then charged $25 for her fish tacos when the menu clearly states $17 and the waitress replied, "oh we upped the prices on the menu". Uh, so we're not going to mention that anywhere?
To be honest, it could be SO MUCH BETTER! There is so much potential, but I personally will not be returning.

Fantastic food and our waiter was great the only reason I’m going at four instead of five stars is that they had a few big parties and the service was a little slow but the waiter was outstanding regardless kudos to this restaurant

this is my honest review and I would return for a second try. The food was good. We were placed in a cramped table when our reservation was clearly for 10 people. It was very cold in the restaurant, We had to wear our jackets. The appetizers came out one at a time and it took more than 30min, that is far too long to gave to wait. After that, our food was delayed as well. when your reservation is for 7 PM you should not be eating your dinner at 8:30 PM. The waiter was apologetic and kind. We were not offered anything in compensation for the long wait or slow service. we were charged extra for a couple of additional tortillas and a small side of guacamole to go with the fajitas.

While the food was great-it took way to long for our table to be served. I ended up having to pack my dinner to go b/c I had to eventually leave. Others got their meals at different times and two received theirs in to-go containers because staff thought they were also leaving.

Food was good overall, portion of guacamole, for the price, was small; quality of guac was fair, but a Mexican restaurant should have amazing guac, in my opinion. The decor needs updating as the chairs weren't very comfortable and shabby. Service was okay, but i think the servers forgot to come to our table and then when I mentioned it, they came over. Overall good place for families. My tacos was good - i have the pineapple/pork - my partner had a steak quesadilla which was also good.

Very disappointing, place smells like mildew, toilet was dirty, food took at least 45 minutes and was charged double on our bill until we questioned it.

Would not recommend and won't return. Don't know how they stay in business!

My fiancé and I had reservations for Saturday night at 10pm, May 5th which was also Cinco de Mayo. We knew because of that they would be extremely busy hence why we made reservations. We also booked a later time so the crowd/rush would hopefully die down a bit. Wrong! We got there at 9:45pm, 15 mins early and weren’t even greeted until 20 mins later. We were then brought to the corner of the restaurants were we were seated and given menus. Half an hour of waiting and waiting with no one to come even say hello or bring us a glass of water we decided to go call the waitress who said she’d be right over... wrong again. People all night were complaining about slow service. There was a birthday party there who waited an hour and a half just for their drinks!!! When asked how many people were staffed, they told us 4 in the kitchen, 4 servers, and two bar tenders. Ummm hello, it’s Cinco de Mayo and you had over 200 reservations for that night, shouldn’t you have staffed it more appropriately? After waiting an hour with no service at all, we decide to get up and leave. Unfortunately, I never got to taste the food but due to the service, or lack of, I won’t ever be returning...

We have been to this restaurant multiple times. I did not understand the poor service rating these other reviews gave the restaurant until tonight. We booked reservations a whole week before asking for seats on the upper level. And we ended up on the basement with very little to no service. We came hungry and did not get ANY food until after numerous complaints within the 3hrs we were left to wait. Thank goodness one of our guests was Spanish and knew one of the bartenders! Otherwise no one would've acknowledge that we were forced to pay off our bill without actually receiving any of the drinks and food ordered. Then to top it off, we saw patrons who came in hours after we showed up getting serviced with food before us. We now know next time not to come here for dinner..I raved so much about this place and ended up getting disrespect from the curly haired hostess who felt younger walk-in patrons would bring her better $ for the night. We ended up spending over $900 for our group of 10 for food and drinks despite the unnecessary and inconsiderate wait. This disrespect has turned us off from going back for a while and we plan to tell and warn others to expect potential poor service when you've invited a group of people to impress to this establishment.Spare yourself the embarassment, go somewhere else who is equipped and staffed to service all guests and patrons to have reserved for the night.

We find the food and drinks are always consistently DELICIOUS. We enjoy having the live band and DJ. Feels like we travelled to Playa Del Carmen one we walk through the doors. This place has great fun vibe and it's always a fun time when we visit.
