Mixto reviews from OpenTable diners
  • Second time was disappointing
    ilovefood
    Dined on 10/5/2013
    So far I've ate twice at this restaurant. First time it was fairly busy, so we sat at the bar and had a couple drinks. We got seats fairly quickly and although it was packed that night, service was fairly quick, accurate, and overall top notch. Second time I went service was poor. Multiple drink and food orders were incorrect and very slow even though there was very few people there since it was at the tail end of dinner. I don't know who was responsible for the lack of attention, but either way it was disappointing. I would guess the last time was a fluke and do plan to eat there again. Hopefully the third time will make up for the second.

    This used to be one of my fav spots. This meal and overall experience was terrible. First: no air conditioning in 90 degree heat (and no apologies for this), second: slow service, third: we were told there were no avacados for guacamole but WERE avacados for the other dishes, fourth: ordered dishes specifically for the avocado they said was present and there were NONE in the dish. The only redeeming quality was the drink menu and prep. I believe the chef has changed several times at this spot and I am no longer a fan.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/2/2013
    The food was ok, nothing to write home about, though. They were befuddled as to we're to place us because we had a stroller, and tried to offer us a highchair instead for my baby, who was obviously too small for one. They also didn't have a changing table, so we had to change him on a bench meant for waiting customers. Awkward. The restaurant was also ROASTING hot, and we sped through our meal to get out of there. Not nearly as pleasant as my previous visits there.. Probably won't go again. Sad.

    Everything we ordered was great, especially the tuna tacos! The server was lacking, the restaurant was way too hot, had to ask for the ceiling fans to be turned on - everyone at our table was 'glistening' with sweat due to the heat. Looking around, others were the same. Service was extremely slow. Server took a drink order from our cute single at the table and completely ignored the rest of us until he brought her drink back. With that said, the food was good enough I would try it again.

    First off, they did not have my open table reservation in their system. They acted like they didn't care at all about my reservation. The hostess was rude AND the manager. They sat us in the corner where they stack the chairs. It was horrible and I have never been treated so badly.

    Great authentic latin spot. Food was really good. Guacamole and cheese dip were really good. I had the beer braised pork, it was incredible. The seafood paella looked amazing. The atmosphere of thIs place is really cool, lots of dia de muerta decor all around, gives it a unique look inside.

    One of the places we like to visit is Wilmington NC. We were looking for a place to eat dinner and found Mixto on OpenTable. It had good reviews and as we were walking by we stopped in to look at the menu. We like what we saw so we went there for dinner. We shared the Caesar Salad. It was unigue and delicious. As we wanted to try some of the small plates we had the Gambas and Calle Calamari. Both were outstanding. The only thing missing was they don't offer desserts. But then you can get ice cream up the street at Kilwin's.

    Dined on 6/8/2013
    Took a group of ~20 to a graduation celebration dinner. Despite having had personal conversations with folks about how I'd like seating arranged, arrived to find a long table set up in the center back of the room under dripping condensation from the ducts above. Thankfully, the configuration I had requested was quickly set up. The server could have been a bit more attentive. The shrimp dish was VERY spicy and came with few fixings to ameliorate the heat. The chile relleno was beany with very little cheese (?). The duck dish, on the otherhand, was DELISH. Would return here because it is centrally located downtown, very near the Riverwalk, and had great live music, which really added positively to the atmosphere.

    This was my second trip to Mixto. It is now a must on any trip to Wilmington. Our service was much slower this time but the food and drinks made up for it. Can't wait to go back & celebrate my birthday with a prickly pear mojito!

    Nice place and food was very good. However, our waitress seemed a little less than attentive as she was waiting on tables inside and outside as well. She did not have a very pleasant attitude since whenever we asked for anything she acted like we were being a bother. We did notice some other wait staff around us that appeared to be much more pleasant! Hopefully we'll have one of them wait on us next time. Yes, there will be a next time!

    Everytime I visit Wilmington, I make sure to visit Mixto. Mixto has an innovative twist on Mexican food. Its selections are bursting with flavor, the service is always friendly and spectacular and the atmosphere is vibrant and fun. If you like good food you must try Mixto.

    The food was fantastic and the service very quick, Mixto is a great place to have a quick snack or full meal. The only minor complaint was it was fairly chilly inside that night, likely due to the brick walls and cold weather outside.

    I came for the first time on my sister's recommendation (she LOVES Mixto). It was the perfect place for me to celebrate my birthday with some girl friends and I will definitely be coming back soon! The house margaritas are delicious, the menu items fun and tasty. I really enjoyed the layout and feel of the restaurant. In my sister's words "it's a complete experience, not just somewhere to go eat." The Mariachi band added greatly to the fun of the night and the basic restaurant standards seemed very high. Thank you so much and I cannot wait to come back!

    A lovely surprise. We ordered the two specials Serrano wrapped boneless, heritage chicken thighs with poached apples and grits AND duck confit, beets, golden raisins, bib lettuce, and feta cheese with citrus vinaigrette. Both dishes were beautifully presented and a wonderful blend of flavors. Service was attentive. With two entrees and two margaritas, our bill was just under $50.00. What a deal. My only complaint was that the boneless thighs still had several little pieces of bone. Outdoor dining was absolutely perfect. Music from inside was festive yet unobtrusive. We'll be back for certain.

    The food here is inconsistant. On this last visit it was only 'good'. The freezer that keeps their ice cream was broken, the server was not made aware and offered us an unavailable dessert. (which, of course, we wanted). I would not run back here, but if I am in the neighborhood, I might eat lunch as the food is priced right.

    Overall great food, loved the live music (went on a Friday night) and appreciated that the restaurant was flexible in allowing us to extend our reservation by thirty minutes. We were a large group of six and had a nice semi-private space. Service was very good, friendly, food came quite fast and server helpful with menu recommendations.

    I usually like this place a lot. Seems they've had a change of menu. The worst was the service though. The waiter had way too many tables to service and therefore didn't have time for our small party of 4. We had to get someone else to get our drinks twice. They were out of several things, including the brown sauce that makes such a difference. I will go back but I hope they have straightened out the service situation
