    I wish I knew more about Mexican food, or even how to pronounce the names. For years I was convinced that I didn't like Mexican cuisine, but Milagro set me straight. I love all the flavours of the hot peppers, coriander, sweet onions, avocado. Great Dessert too.

    Had an excellent meal this past weekend at Milagro's Mexican Cantina on Queen West. Went with my folks and all three of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Started with a half order of guacamole (which is plenty for 3 ppl) which was excellent. Me and my dad ordered the enchiladas rojas (which is a favourite of mine), and they were delicious, smothered in a red chipotle sauce with a side of rice and beans. My mom ordered a vegetarian burrito and she was very happy with it. Also had a round of margarita's (slightly overpriced at $8.50) but they were made with care and we were all impressed. Service could've been better, our waiter wasn't overly friendly but that didn't sour the experience. Ambience is great. Overall - 8/10

    we had another amazing meal. the staff were very attentive and spent a lot of time explaining the different options and the "heat" associated with each. Each item we ordered was delicious. We would recommend this place to all our friends. the sangria was also a "must try". the only negative was that the musical duo was situated right by our table and when they started playing it was difficult to hear our conversation.

    We purchased the Team Buy deal for Milagro and were very excited to try it - we were not disappointed! The food was very authentic - $4.95 Sangria Thursday's didn't hurt either! Our server was absolutely fantastic and definitely made our experience that much better. I hear the patio is great but it was raining so we weren't able to sit outside. Live music at 8:30 is a nice touch - the only somewhat disappointment was we made reservations a few days prior and were somewhat disappointed with our table. It would have been nice to be downstairs with all the action! Overall great experience - live in the area so definitely will go back and will recommend to others!

    Probably not a typical experience. We were a party of 10 and the restaurant was also hosting a wedding up stairs. The food took forever. The service was not attentive. When the food did come most of it was cold. Two members of the table had to wait an additional 10 minutes before their food came, which I hate because everyone feels bad starting to eat.

    The food overall was good and seemed quite authentic. The food is well priced but the drinks are on the pricey side. The servers were too eager to pick up the plates, but other than that, the servers were informative.

    food was good and I could feel that our server was trying to be nice. However, a tortilla we asked additionally never came. First, our server took a wrong order and we needed to ask again. Then she took the right order, but It took more than 30 minutes, so we decided to cancel it. They should let us know in advance, if those basic things will take such long time. Also, they didn't bring the bill for a while. Their food was good, but the service can make the experience worse.

    We were not able to sit downstairs as usual which was unfortunate; the mood and ambiance is entirely different upstairs. Eventually we moved out to the patio which was OK. The built-in box seats around the perimeter are not comfortable and are built too high, thank goodness the boys sat there in our case. The music was a little loud. The food is exceptional as usual. We shared the Ensalada de la Casa a very tasty and refreshing salad of mango, jicama, avocado and cucumber with a sweet yet tangy lime dressing. I had the Veulve a la Vida Ceviche and my home had the Mole. Both very tasty!

    A girlfriend and I went there on a Friday night. The servers were very knowledgeable and friendly for the most part. It is probably one of the better Mexican restaurants in the city. My dish (enchiladas) was pretty flavourful, I enjoyed it. My friend got the chicken tinga and it looked like an open faced taco with shredded rather than ground meat. The salsa was the highlight as it was freshly made and authentic.

    I was excited to go here after looking at the menu online - there were great options (even vegetarian) and I like spicy food. Unfortunately I did not like my meal at all. The service was terrible too; it was cinqo de mayo so it was quite busy but there were lots of people working so there was no excuse. After our drinks were done no one came by the table for about 45 minutes to see if we wanted another drink. And we were served by 3 separate people &the same person never returned for a second time. They did not even come to clear our table until we stacked the plates ourselves. Everyone was very friendly but the service was slow, inconsistent and the food was mucho disappointing. I won't go back.

    Queen St. location: Of all the Mex restaurants that we've eaten at in Toronto (and largely been disappointed in), this one had the best Enchiladas Mole and Guacamole that we've come across so far. Too much ice in the Classic Margaritas but the flavor was spot on. Host and waiter were friendly and did a good job. Thumbs up.

    Food is always excellent, although service can be a bit hit or miss; it's not that there aren't enough wait staff, just the opposite. Lot's of people running around, but little service! We had a bit later reservation on a Friday night (8pm instead of our usual 7:30) so the place was a bit noisier than our usual experience - but definitely fun. After 9 the noise died down and it was a little empty. My favourite seats are across from the bar - we always seem to get better attention there.
