A word from Mixto
Mixto is a two-story natural wood and exposed brick building located on the east side of downtown Philadelphia on the historic Antique Row. We have been opened for ten consecutive years. Our vision has been to bring an array of flavors of the Cuban, Latin American and Caribbean cuisine to the Center City area.

We are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with bar service and an extensive wine selection.

Mixto offers outdoor dining with a South Beach Miami ambiance during the spring, summer & fall when the weather permits.

    The food was good, fresh but 4 out of five entrees lacked seasoning. So fresh but no flavorful. Mixto is a little pricey. I will return to try again. When we went there was a DJ on the first floor, way too loud if you hope to have a conversation, sit upstairs!

    We went for dinner on a Saturday night and had to wait 30 min, even though we had a reservation. We occupied our time at the bar with SANGRIA!!!! Which was delicious. The food was great filling and full of flavor. Just don't go with someone you are getting to know. It is SUPER LOUD.

    We attended a Forest Theater matinee and had picked this place online since it was nearby and had decent reviews and photos. What a lovely surprise to find it exceeded our hopes. We arrived early for our reservation and were seated promptly. The margarita and mojito offerings were vast and delicious. Good to be able to buy a pitcher, too. The waiter was very attentive throughout. The large sampler appetizer was really tasty/varied for 4 ($24) and quite filling. Two could share that for a dinner. Among us, we had scallops, lamb, and flank steak, all of which were delicious. The atmosphere was fun and inviting. The Latin music was lively but not too loud. Definitely get reservations. A winner.

    My boyfriend and I went for the first time last week. Loved it! Great ambience and wonderful service. Very spacious, they don't try to cram you in like some other restaurants do. It has 2 floors, we sat upstairs. The waiter was very knknowledgeable. They have an extensive drink list (order a pitcher of the cucumber mojito....yum)!

  • 18% gratuity added to parties of 4
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 8/8/2014
    My husband and I went to Mixto on a double date with my sister and her husband Friday night, so it was the 4 of us. Food was good but 18% gratuity was automatically added to our bill, so we almost tipped twice. We go out to dinner all the time in Philly and gratuity is never added for a party of 4. The server then said it was "optional" for them to add and that's it stated on the menu, so we asked to speak with the manager. Yes, it is stated on the menu that 18% gratuity is added to parties of 4 or more, but apparently it's still up to the server's discretion. We won't be returning, but if you choose to go, I suggest that you pay attention to your bill and don't tip twice.

    Loud, loud, loud. No place to sit for brunch that is not "energetic" noise. Food fantastic. More of a party atmosphere on a Sunday morning, a hangover crowd, lots of early hour drinking. Because we do not drink, we noticed that the noise level was like being in a loud club. We'll go back for the food for dinner, when the atmosphere is more intimate.

    I was disappointed during this trip at Mixto. I had a friend meet me there for brunch as it had been great the last time I was there. My peach mimosa didn't taste like peach at all and the hollandaise sauce on my eggs benedict was clearly not tasted prior to being sent out. I was embarrassed that I had recommended Mixto as a place to meet for brunch. Hopefully they can turn things around.

    My wife and I went with another couple who ran an hour late. They held our reservation and let us sit at the bar. They eventually let us sit and order appertizers while we waited. Everyone from the hostess to the bartenders to waitor we friendly and helpful. They never disappeared despite it being a Saturday night. The drinks and food were excellent. I really don't have anything negative to say about the entire experience. You should come here.

    I came here with my best friend and boyfriend and everything was great!! I usually get take out orders from here and the food is always great but I actually sat and had dinner and the experience was amazing. Great food, strong drinks, spectacular service. I usually didn't understand how people leave things behind at the table once they leave but after sharing two pitchers of amazing alcoholic drinks I could see how it's easy to leave your credit card, sunglasses, keys, and sobriety (whoopsss). It's a great time just don't come in to expect so much despite all the great reviews (even though I stand behind all my stars given). Just enjoy what comes your way and you'll understand what I mean. Thanks oscar 😘

    This was my second time at Mixto. We had gone for brunch previously (the food is just as awesome at brunch). This time we went for dinner. The prices are reasonable. The food is incredible. We ordered the mixed platter of appetizers; everything on it was delicious. Also, we were able to request a menu substitution without any problems (tostones for maduros). The portion size was perfect. My son had the steak-it was incredible! I had the vaca frita, I had never had that before but would definitely go back to have it again. This is one of my family's favorite spots to eat in Philly. It is a small cozy setting and the service and food are wonderful.
