Needed a last minute reservations
Needed a last minute reservations and the hostess fit us right in. Had a great time people watching through the booth behind the bar! Dinner was delicious and the best part was the Cheese Dip, so good!!!

As usual, very good. Been here several times for a variety of occasions. This time it was dinner with my family. In the past it has been sitting at the bar with friends, date with my girlfriend, or a happy hour. All very good experiences, I will be back.

Started with the Angino? chicken
Started with the Angino? chicken nachos and a pitcher of margaritas. Delicious and refreshing; love that they use fresh jalapenos on the nachos and not pickled stadium peppers. I had the roasted poblanos with seafood and queso and wifey had the torilla soup and a salad. Her soup had a little more kick than she likes, but I tasted it and it was fine. Our lovely guest, R, had the lobster quesadilla with spring greens (which were billed as a salad). We felt her dish should have been served either with a dressing or salsa side as there was nothing in which to dip it. Waitress was attentive but not disturbing and wasn't even irritated that we took the table far longer than we should. Zoc is a hit. Love it.

Great tequila selection. My husband got to try a new tequila he's been wanting to try. Food was delicious & nt too pricey.

Excellent waitress Elyse. Very accommodating to menu modifications and very friendly. Excellent margaritas. Loved the three salsa appetizer. Enchiladas and nachos were very good. Reservations were convenient and seating was timely.

Our table of 4 each tried different items - which were all awesome. They added some new items - MUST try is the lobster quesadilla and pork enchilada with EGG!
Great time - great food & service!

We were looking for casual dining within walking distance of our hotel. Fun atmosphere and upscale Mexican food. Lively crowd but not so noisy that we couldn't carry on a conversation. Also liked being seated promptly at our reservation time and not stuck in the bar. Interesting food.

Great Brunch on a beautiful patio!
Came for Mother's Day brunch - we were promptly seated at a great table on the back patio. We've sat on the front patio before which seems to be the most popular but the back patio is my new favorite - very serene with the same good people watching. Food was delicious, Horchata French Toast, Cinnamon Rolls and I also tried some of the Chilaquiles, an authentic Mexcian brunch item which I plan to have next time. Service was friendly and attentive - we'll definitely be back!

Wonderful Vibe and Great Food!
This is my second time at Zocalo and I would definitely go back! Though the service was slow at times, the food, ambiance, and killer margaritas will have me coming back time and time again! I would recommend this place for anyone looking for great cuisine and a great night!

My friends and I were looking
My friends and I were looking for a girls night out and Zocalo was perfect. They have great margaritas ranging from traditional to inventive I personally loved the blood orange frozen margarita. The service is great even on a Saturday night and we never had empty water glasses which I feel is an important part of service at a restaurant. This has quickly become one of my favorite places to eat out at!

The staff and management all took time to make sure we were completely satisfied with every aspect of our dinner. Highly recommend!!!

Perfect summer dining
We had our daughters 21st birthday dinner here. The food was fantastic and although we sat inside the doors were open to the patio so it felt like we were outside--without the wind and traffic noise. Our waitress had only been there 2 days but she was so friendly and attentive. She made the experience great. A manager stopped by and asked how our meal was. All four of us felt that the food was outstanding. We live in Denver but plan on going back next time we are in KC.

Not only is the food fresh and unique, there's great live music on occassion that makes you want to stay for more! Zocalos was our first pick for a goodbye dinner with friends. Can't wait to go back.

If you would like a bit of elegance with your Mexican food, this is the place. Lovely restaurant with some delicious twists on the cuisine.

This was my second visit. Food was great but service needs some work.

This was our fist visit and we could not ask for anything better. The food and service was top notch! We will return and make it a recommendation to our friends.

I want to go back!
Wonderful food, margaritas, great service and fun atmosphere! I went with my husband and some friends for my birthday. My lobster tacos were delicious and my husband's scallops were too! The smoky salsa was really flavorful and the strawberry leche cake they brought for my birthday was fabulous!! I would recommend and can't wait to go back!!

Trendy resturant with modern decor. Delicious twist to Mexican food. Loved the margaritas, outdoor seating and atmosphere.

My new favorite Mexican spot!
This has quickly become my favorite Mexican restaurant in the city. Sure, if I'm just feeling like heavy, cheesy burritos or greasy tacos, which I do sometimes, there are plenty of places to go in town. But when I actually want to enjoy the flavors -- and apparent cuisine -- of Mexico, this is now my go to spot. Beautiful restaurant and fun ambiance, but the food is the real star. I had the Mexico City Sampler, my favorite enchilada was the short rib mole. Mole is hard to get right and they've done it here. Tried some of the Lobster tacos and they were equally great -- it's nice to be able to really taste the lobster with the othe crisp flavors. Platinum margarita and red sangria were also spot on. Looking forward to our next visit.

Awesome Food, Awesome Drinks
Zocalo is one of my favorite restaurants on the Plaza. The food is great, the menu is creative, and the service is above average. The ambience is strange without being unpleasant. They played a lot of pop music (Lady Gaga, Demi Lovato, etc), but it created a light, and enjoyable atmosphere. I recommend the Chicken Tinga Tacos and the Ultimate Margartia. And the tequila selection is awesome.

Went for lunch on Tuesday, and was surprised with the $2 taco "Tuesday special." Three fish tacos made a substantial and do opus lunch.

Popped by during the Plaza Art Fair for lunch. A few months ago we had a dinner at Zocalo that was mediocre at best but decided to give it another shot. Exceeded our expectations. We'll definitely dine at Zocalo for lunch again. The patio was a perfect little spot.

Nice place to eat
This place was very nice. The food was good. The chorizo fundido is awesome! So were the tinga tacos! I would go back for sure.

Great new flavors
The food was amazing. It's nice to have choices that are familiar yet so interesting and we'll done! Our waiter was outstanding and our group of 8 enjoyed the whole experience. We will definitely be back! You have to try the terrorized carrots!

not "traditional", but very good !
This was my first time at this restaurant, and wasn't sure what to expect. Was looking for a lunch spot on the Plaza to meet a couple of former co-workers, and saw this and thought we'd try someplace new. The food isn't what I would consider "traditional" Mexican, but rather a new take on some of the classics. Their tortilla soup is really good, but a little different than most. The seafood enchilada I had for an entree was the same; seasonings / sauce were quite diffdrent, but it was very, very tasty !
Very pleased with the service and the speed. We were in and out in an hour, but still had really good food and really good service !

Our second time to Zocalo - good food and good service.

My wife and I celebrated our 9th anniversary with an intimate dinner at Zocalos, it is now our favorite spot.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed our happy hour!
Happy hour items were a good value. Some unusual options, which was nice compared to the standard things at most places. Tasty as well. We will be back.

Made a reservation on line. Got right in and has service immediately. My date had the special which was excellent. I had the enchilda sampler. Was ok to me. The jalepeno poppers were terrific. The ambience was very nice.

We had a nice non-traditional Thanksgiving dinner here. It was a great dinner, we had nice service, and it was kid friendly. It was close to the Plaza lights on celebration too.
