    Extremely friendly customer service by the ladies who attended us on the Friday night. One lady said to my friend, you look like you want to ask me something but don't want to ask me - do you want more chips? Let me get you some chips! We all laughed.. We were shy about asking for yet another bowl of chips for our guacamole, but it was just soooo darn tasty! We ordered a lot of tacos and tostadas. My fave was the fish and slaw taco, but they were all very tasty. We will definitely be back again. Thanks.

    Mexican is my favourite type of cuisine. Milagro offers great Mexican food, however, the prices are a bit high. The guacamole is $8.50 and served in a tiny bowl. The appetizer size tacos (not indicated that they are appetizer size on the menu) are around $10-12. However, with the guacamole I had enough with the appetizer size taco, and was really glad I did not upgrade to the meal-size for $7 more. And the fish tacos were very delicious My husband's rib-eye beef fajita-type thing was also great, and was a better value for $19. Aside from the prices, the other thing we didn't like was the ambience. We were seated upstairs despite the fact that 1/2 of the downstairs was empty. It was really quiet up there, with only 2 other groups.

    The food, salsa, guacamole and warm refried beans set the standard, loved it followed by chicken enchilada trio, the two of us had the same both of us had only rave comments. The waiter who may have been one of the owners convinced us un these warm cinnamon sure donut sticks ( OMG - killer!). My only issue or complaint was the restaurant was so dimly lit I had to use the flash lite on my phone to see the menu.

    Great place to check out. I think we will be going back numerous times. Our meals were very authentic tasting, great flavour and heat. All different groups seemed to fit in perfectly; a family with 3 kids, a couple having a nice night out, and group of young adults recalling the Blue Jays game they just attended. Definitely recommend it.

    We frequent Milagro because the food is very tasty, well priced and it's in the neighbourhood. Did I mention the mojitos? Fabulous! We love sharing the tortilla appetizers and the La Vida cerviche - everything is fresh and delicious. It's a really enjoyable restaurant with a great vibe in a central location.

    As part of Summerliscious, we had dinner with friends at Milagro. We enjoyed the Margheritas and friendly service but not the food. Milagro's focus is on large quantity of foods rather than quality. As you enter, there is bowl of lollipops and burned candles in Mateus wine bottles. The wooden tables and chairs are close to each other. The noise level is high making it difficult to have conversations. The food and ambiance make it a fun stop for large groups but not for dinner with friends. For $45. per person without drinks, you can find much better restaurants in the area.

This is by far the most delicious Mexican food I have ever had, and I have tried quite a few other places. Super consistent between both places, and service was amazing.

    Long delay in service, no free chips and salsa, oddly salty salad that was not edible, dried out rice, underwhelming basic food that arrived cold, forgot beverages, dated dirty decor. Manager could care less about customer service. Would never recommend this establishment. The prices are extremely high without merit. Drinks are ridiculously priced and out of line. A bit if a dilusional place.

The staff is incredibly friendly and amicable, knowledgeable about the menu, and the menu packed with delicious food. This restaurant would flourish in any location.

The choices for appetizers, main course and dessert were awesome and there was a lot to choose from. The staff were extremely attentive too. Overall, definitely recommend if you are a fan of Mexican food. It was delicious!

    My entire immediate family, including 2 children dined at the Yonge St location early on a Thursday evening (6pm). We were one of the first guests. The food was quite good, though not as good as some of the Mexican food I am familiar with in San Francisco, but good all the same. Drinks: sangria, margaritas and micheladas were only average. However, the service was very, and I mean very, slow. We were not the only table to complain about this that evening. This is the primary reason for the poor rating.

    A return visit for a Friday reservations and its very busy. Our pleasant hostess had our table ready, on-time. Superb Octopus ceviche. Agave Flight (De Lujo) was very good but skimpy on quantity. Mojito (La Dama) though tasty & refreshing lacked any 'punch'. Stellar tacos (La Pastor) - great texture, flavour and kick all nicely presented. Desserts were just the right amount of sweet to end the meal. The ambiance was overly 'boisterous' making it difficult to hold a conversation. Unfortunately since they DO NOT split bills (or separate bills as I was told...read fine print on their website), Milagro is no longer my first choice for (terrific) Mexican food. Yes I will return, but not as quick as I used to (too noisy and no bill-splitting).

    We went to Milagro on a Saturday evening. We were seated upstairs, and the service, although friendly, was slow and inattentive. They seemed to be understaffed for the number of diners. The food was reasonably good, but because of delays, and missing some items, the overall experience was mediocre. We will not go back.

    Stumbled across the Yonge location between a wedding and reception.. Had some delicious guacamole and even better ceviche. Have been back several times since, and took some friends there on Sat. Everyone had, and loved, something different. Service was good and fun, even tho the place was packed. Really yummy Mexican food. Btw... We drive from Newmarket to go there, so it isn't just around the corner for us. Small, pretty noisy when crowded, so if you're looking for quiet, don't come at dinner

The food, the Margarita's , the service, the ambiance...Didn't make it to the main course. The tapas were amazing. the fish taco was my favourite. Would definatly go back again.

    I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday and for his first ever taco. They had options for mojitos that I had never even heard of but would have gladly tried them all! Great seafood options with the perfect amount of spice. Not only all of this, but to boot the service was excellent. Our server was ready with suggestions and even a half bowl of chips when I couldn't make up my mind if I wanted more. All in all, really great. Really really great.
