Diner Reviews
  • "We are fairly regular diners at Mexico, and love the food. Unfortunately, at our last couple of visits, the service has been weak...slow to take orders, slower to get our drinks and food, and little follow up for additional salsa, chips, water, etc."

  • "Located up top in Pacific Place this restaurant has great Mexican food. I had chicken tacos and the chicken was very tasty. Not dry at all. The chips that come with the chips and salsa have lime juice on them, not a lot, but they really add to the flavor. This is how I ate tortilla chips back in Texas. Squeeze some lime juice on them bad boys. The salsa has a hint of heat. On my next trip I will try carne asada which looked tasty on my friend's plate. Please note that their burritos are huge! Small appetites might be overwhelmed."

  • "The menu is tired, the restrooms were filthy...it is difficult to understand how a once great destination has lost its way."

  • "Food was amazing and arrived very quickly. Service was personable and prompt, could improve on the details, ie. Serving spoons with dishes. All in all a terrific experience."

  • "Mexico is one of our downtown favorites. The food is great for the money (especially eating downtown). The staff are always friendly and do their best to accommodate food allergies. Can't go wrong with Mexico!"

  • "I've figured out what to do here since lunch service is so slow. I ask for the check when I place my order. Food is consistently good and service is spotty...really depends on whose section you are in. Larger parties get all of the attention here. Even though I made an early reservation and the restaurant had virtually no one in it I was still seated in a very poor spot. What is the new hostess thinking? The spot I was in should be for walk-in customers not people with reservations."

  • "This restaurant is a great option for delicious Mexican food when you are downtown. I made a reservation for dinner before attending a musical at the 5th Ave Theater - parking is affordable and it is a short walk to the theater. The restaurant is energetic and vibrant and the food never disappoints me. They take traditional Mexican food and make it a bit more upscale and flavorful, it's fresh and yummy."

  • "Nothing that special about this place other than being conveniently located in Pacific Place. For way cheaper I can run up to capitol hill and get really GREAT mexican food."

  • "I reserved a large table for my wife's birthday party before heading to a show at the Paramount. The food and drinks were really delicious and all the ingredients were homemade. My only complaint was that it took 10 minutes for our waiter to come by and we didn't get our drinks until after we had been there 20 minutes, our food didn't arrive until 60 minutes after we arrived so we had to rush out to get to our show on time. I'm sure the waiter was busy, it was a Saturday night, but I told him right at the beginning when we had to leave for our show. He was very friendly though, maybe they were understaffed that night. Overall I would definitely eat here again and recommend it to others, just be sure to book more than 2 hours before a show."

  • "Our group of ten enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Mexico Cantina. Our table was ready a bit early, the food was delicious, the drinks were cold, and the service was terrific. What made our night truly special though was the service for two of our guests, one fully blind and one with cerebral palsy. The table was oriented for easy access, plenty of cheerful space was provided for the guide dog, and the service was especially attentive to each of us who needed it. Thank you, Mexico Cantina!"

  • "I love Mexican food and was looking forward to this dinner, but have to say my tamale was drowned in such strong mole sauce, I couldn't taste anything else. The waiter described to each person after s/he ordered what their entree was like, which felt patronizing--if we'd asked about the entrees, that would have been fine, but we hadn't--the descriptions on the menu were sufficient.Otherwise the waiter was very attentive and helpful."

  • "We were seated very promptly, excellent service, pretty good food... I say that because the steak was great but the side dishes (beans/rice) were barely warm and were not particularly impressive. We'd go again but don't set your expectations too high."

  • "The Bar Team (Drew and Nicole) are awesome! Very prompt and always make us feel welcomed. It is nice to go eat at place where the staff knows you by name and what you like to order."

  • "The food is very good...I have many dietary restrictions and they accommodate me here...although communication is sometimes an issue. I eventually get what I ordered...no harm, no foul. I have never been here and gotten out in under an hour and 15 minutes, so if you have a tight lunch schedule you may have a problem. Waitstaff is friendly. This restaurant really gets packed quickly, so go for an early reservation like 11:30 or you could be in for an even longer lunch than an hour and 15 minutes."

  • "Terrific location, friendly and prompt service, and consistently delicious food all combine to make Mexico Cantina Y Cochina one of my go-to restaurants in Seattle. Their tamarind margharita is refreshing, as are their mojitos. Their chicken tomatillo is by far my favourite, but I've ordered a wide variety from their expansive menu and never been disappointed. Their food really is consistently delicious. Their waitstaff are very friendly, always serving you with a ready (and sincere) smile. One really can't go wrong with the Cantina."
