What a Great Find!This was my first visit and I know I will be back many more times. I loved the atmosphere - it was so festive and I enjoyed the music. The mojitos were great and the food was interesting and delicious. And to top it all off - the happy hour prices are so reasonable.
Judy6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat cuisineExcellent little spot w a fusion of Caribbean, Latin, & Cuban. Well priced and a very good drink menu.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food. We securedVery good food. We secured one of the few outside tables. Unfortunately, the table inside next to ours had a very loud group which made conversation difficult.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food - service was fairTimes recently and the food was very good. Service is lacking and the tables were very crowded.
Request to fine outside was not honored, we felt rushed at times. However overall very good food is reliable and consistent6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had another wonderful mealWe had another wonderful meal at Mixto. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We love the food and atmosphere.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodThe food here is very good, you get a lot of it, and the prices are right.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Favorite Restaurant in TownEasily my favorite restaurant in the city! Great atmosphere coupled with fantastic menu options. Their mixed cocktails are delicious, we ordered a pitcher of mango mojitos to start at the bar, and then we took them to our table when it was ready. The whole menu is excellent and I usually try something new when I go. However, one thing I always get is the Maduro Relleno for an appetizer. Overall it is an excellent atmosphere, and an overall great restaurant!!!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat vegetarian foodI got the veggie paella - my boyfriend got the veggie sandwich and both were excellent, fresh and tasty. For appetizer we got the guacamole with plantain chips - also amazing! Service was great and we sat outside in the front, which was beautifully decorated. Yummy drinks and cocktails. My only complaint was the birds out front while we were eating. We mentioned it to the server, and he commented at how "friendly" they were. LOL - one of them literally flew at my face while I was taking a bite of food and hovered next to my head, flapping it's wings for several seconds until i shooed it away. For most of the meal, these tiny birds were all around our table and watching us, waiting for us to drop something.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AM20% Gratuity IncludedThere was only 5 of us and they put an automatic gratuity of 20% on the bill. I always thought it was 6 or more so it came as a surprise.I dine there often and normally leave 25-30%...I guess it's the risk the server takes.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMTwo-times scrumptiousBoth times I have been to Mixto the food has impressed me and my fellow diners. Love the guacamole and plantain chips and the ropa viejas. Heard good things about the lamb chops, scallops, and vaca frita.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for Outdoor DiningMixto has great food, solid service and a great ambience. Love sitting outside there. Definitely worth a try! And make sure to get the guacamole with plantain chips.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHidden GemI was very surprised with this pleasant find! The service was good, the food was fantastic (very flavorful and decorative display), the margarita was pretty decent and the noise level wasn't out of control. The lighting was so dim I had a hard time reading the menu. Overall I highly recommend this place if you're looking for wonderful, flavorful food with a cool vibe and good service. It's a hidden gem.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSat near the bar. All of theSat near the bar. All of the food was excellent. Great big margaritas. Service was fair at best but may have been a result of where we sat.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMom's Day OutI am a regular but I took my mother here and she could not have loved it more. Her happiness made me feel good. That made me look at the restaurant even more favorably. Great job.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic RestaurantThe food was an excellent my wife and I enjoyed ourselves. Very creative dishes and the serice was outstanding. My wife had the French Toast Croissant with apple butter. I had plantains with Rice and Chicken. Both dishes were extremely flavorful and we will be back soon.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMhappy hourThis is the second time we meet with co-workers for happy hour at Mixto.

We are definitively coming back for more fun and excellent food.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy Hour MustMixto has great happy hour specials. We always get the $5 Mojitos and a few $1 Empanadas. The mojitos are always strong and the empanadas are huge and filling. Overall great deal!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMSign me up for round 2I have been to Mixto many times and I am never disappointed. The food was awesome as were the margaritas. The only downside was that it was incredibly loud by the bar area.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Love this place...Great food. Love this place... been eating here for years. The last two times I've been a bit disappointed with their service because they kept hurrying us up and trying to get us out of there as fast as possible. Apparently, they were expecting a big group or something so they needed the table. We were informed of this multiple times through the course of our dinner. It was not like we were just sitting there and talking. The whole time we were there, we were ordering drinks and food. The moment we signed the check they very politely asked us to leave.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe margaritas are phenomenal!The margaritas are phenomenal! I especially recommend the frozen mango margarita. The food is great too, I enjoyed the empanadas.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant serves greatThis restaurant serves great cuban food at moderate prices.

FromEverything was great! From service to drinks to dishes! It was my first time, but I am definitely going back for more!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOur table was ready immediatelyOur table was ready immediately (a bonus!) however our entire party was not there yet so a few of us went to the upstairs bar for drinks. The bartender upstairs was horrible. He dropped drink menus in front of us without saying a word. It took 10 minutes for him to come back to us and take our drink order. We overhead he messed up a bunch of orders before us so I guess thats why. Consider hiring a new bartender.
But our actual dining experience was wonderful. We had a party of 10 and our waiter handled everything fabulously.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLocal gem keeps getting better!Mixto is a great local gem! The menu has evolved over the years to perfection with a wide variety of choices; seafood, poultry and beef. Excellent Plato Mixto combo of delicious appetizers a great start. Nice intimate bar on first level great for an after work drink with a friend or lover. Little known takeout serivce if you're just having a drink before heading home.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the food, service excellentLoved the food, service excellent without being obtrusive. The restaurant has a great feel, my only complaint is the noise level is pretty high, at times hard to hear conversation. I don't know if it was just our particular table location or if that is the way it is everywhere. I will definitely go back though to find out.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMixto is a great.

Great Cuban food. Wonderful service. Have never been disappointed.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA fun timeWe had a sampling of the starters and they were all excellent. We shared a paella which was outstanding. The caprahinas are to die for. The only negative was that our wine was served hot, not warm but literally hot. The wine is apparently stored above the kitchen which is way too hot. We had some confusion about our reservation, our fault, and the staff had been very accommodating, so we did not sendit back, but should have.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLatin food like my LatinaLatin food like my Latina Mom used to make. Have the Arroz com Pollo Cubano.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy Favorite Restaurant in the Area!This is my favorite restaurant in the area! The food is always fresh and flavorful. The mixed drinks are phenomenal. We have gone tons of times, but the Valentine's Day Pre fixe menu was our latest visit. The menu and selection was great for the price. It was nice to have it all laid out for us, and it was a lot of food! The dessert and champagne at the end just put us over the top (in a good way).2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoy Mixto but tables areEnjoy Mixto but tables are really tight...noticed this in both main level ans upstairs. Great Latin food and good service.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
