    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.

    Service was pretty bad. Extremely loud and felt like a cafeteria.no music playing in background. They don't do separate bills. Couldn't tell who worked there - no uniforms. Food was authentic but bland maybe for western taste buds and the mole sauce was disgusting.

    We have now been to both the location on younge, and mercer and I am yet to be disappointed! 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. Summerlicious menu was also well constructed!

    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.

    We came here for summerlicious and it was really good. I was thoroughly impressed. For the lunch menu, you get quite a lot of food. 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

Oh and easy street parking was a bonus :)

    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.

    The best guacamole in the city hands down. It is creamy, luscious and light. Their Mole Poblano was excellent. And their tortilla reminded me of Cozumel - exact same in flavour, sizing and presentation. Would highly recommend Milagros for their authentic menu. The atmosphere was cozy and kid friendly too. The staff were all very helpful and their description of their foods was bang on.

    The food and staff were great but the high prices (2 orders of tacos, 2 mains and 4 drinks) keep this from becoming a regular spot. Drinks are fantastic, try something that might be new to you off the menu like the michelada or the macho mojito.

    The first time we dined here we enjoyed the food coz we ordered only appetizers and tacos. Iwe still enjoyed the queso fundido and will come back for it but our main entrees didn 't meet our expectations. Would not recommend the ahi tuna. There's no mexican twist other than the avocado at the side.

    The food was okay, definitely not even close to the best Mexican I've had in Toronto but the service was really terrible. It was a half hour before anyone even came up to our table, then we ordered a drink with our order and it didn't arrive, so about 45 min later (after the appetizer, when dinner arrived) and the waiter finally came back I asked about it. It took another ten minutes before we got it and the waiter charged us for it. Even after waiting an hour! I also asked for a side of sour cream. I finished over half of my meal before I actually got it. Do not waste your money.

    This was our second visit to Milagro and it was fantastic. The service with which the staff greeted us was pleasant and welcoming. We were seated on the second floor on a single table as requested. For drinks we ordered to traditional Mexican Beer preparation called Mechelada a must have if you are adventurous. For the main course my wife ordered the chicken Enchiladas and I the seared Tuna (which was absolute perfection). Despite it being Valentines days the service was prompt and courteous which shows well for an establishment

    When I let the waiter know that my ceviche was too spicy, he mentioned that it was mexican food (insinuating that I should not complain since mexican food is spicy) until both tables on each side of us complained as well. If the food is very spicy, clients should be made aware of it..too bad, I enjoyed the first few bites of that ceviche but couldn't finish. I understand the ambiance theme is relaxed and that the waiter did not mean to be sarcastic or offensive but he was at the limit of being rude sometimes. There is a fine boundary between friendliness and being rude. We are glad we tried this restaurant but it will not be worth the detour again for us.

    This restaurant boasted wonderful reviews - it was between Milagro and Margaritas on Baldwin which did not enjoy the best reviews. Without any question, Margaritas blew Milagro away. No doubt, if it wasn't for the 'upscale' location of Milagro, the reviews might tell it like it is - strictly mediocre.
