    Milagro on Queen is our go-to Mexican restaurant; food is well priced and always quite delicious. Katy is very welcoming and always has a moment to chat no matter how busy she is (and they were quite busy on Saturday). Even though we made reservations and they had a table for us, we sat at the bar which is a fun experience.

    The restaurant is cozy, somewhat dark and intimate. We sat in the front window as we had our 4-year old with us and didn't want to bug any of the more romantic tables-of-two near the bar. The service was fast and attentive. We received homemade chips and salsa immediately, and were quite pleased when they returned quickly with some authentic margaritas, but also with a kids menu! The kids menu was happily devoid of the usual chicken fingers; instead with several mexican themed options all of which come with mexican rice and salad. The food was delicious, authentic and service was great; it's approachable enough for any night, but still enough ambiance for date night. We'll be returning soon.

    One of three same-owner Mexican restaurants in Toronto. Goes above "Tex-Mex". Great, tasty soupa with tortillas - a rich, smokey and spicy broth, chunks of avocado and other goodies. Very warming on a cold night. Good assortment of soft-tortilla fish tacos. The shrimp was excellent, the tilapia with homemade"coleslaw" a nice combo of soft and crunchy, spicy and cool. Lots of beer, tequila and margarita options, too. Many other entrees on the menu, including the usual enchiladas and moles - all looked good. Flan plus cafe de olla a great way to end.

  • Food safety/prep a bit of a concern
    Foodie
    Dined on 12/13/2013
    Milagro does do a few things well - drinks are generously sized, food was generally pretty authentic and the ambiance was fun. The downside relates to some food prep/safety concerns. With our appetizer (guacamole) one of us took a bite and unfortunately almost ate a sticker that must have come from the outside of a tomato. Not a huge deal but lead us to wonder how carefully the produce is being washed before chopping (if at all)? The second point of concern is that my husband almost swallowed a small chunk of glass that made its way into his drink. It was a little alarming because if he had swallowed it, no doubt some serious damage could have occurred. Milagro did comp our desert & one drink but don't think we will return.

    We had a group of 7, so were able to try a number of items. Fish tacos (tacos le perla) was delicious, Chirizo is highly recommended, their salsa is so yummy. All other items were good as well. I would also recommend their margarita, that is SO DAMN GOOD! virgin version works as well. It was a Sunday night and less busy so I don't know if this changes anything but the service was very helpful and informative.

    My friends and i were really into eating mexician food. The place we wanted to dine at on dupont st was booked solid for the next two months…so we came here. I am sorry we did. The establishment itself is a nice building…nice inside…..poor heating….sitting near the large windows was unbearably cold….as was elsewhere after we moved. Mainly the food was not great. It was ok, but not great. Sangria tasted odd, the meal itself was uninspiring, and the service very slow. Throughout the meal we were saddened by the fact we didn't go to Terroni, which was just across the street. I am sorry i have to give this review. This place has so much potential.

    The food at Milagro was great! Tasty and nice presentation. we were there for an early dinner on a Saturday, so it was still quiet, and calm...not sure if it gets noisier in there when it is busier. The staff was friendly, however, my co-diner and I were sharing 2 dishes, and the first one came out, the Enchilada was awesome - the server came to take away our dishes and offer us dessert, at which point we asked where our 2nd dish was?? He was extremely apologetic, although did not really explain what happened, and he brought it out shortly after...fresh and piping hot. Delicious. Hopefully that was a one-off screw-up on their part. Definitely get the guacamole..outstanding!

    Service was excellent, friendly and efficicient butthe food was not exceptional. It was not quite the authentic Mexican cuisine. Especially the Tortilla Soup was anything but a real Mexican Tortilla soup. It was made with some paste of thick chipotle sauce with a few nachos thrown in and extemely hot. I also found that the price with respect to the quality was disproportionate. In general, I liked it but I wouldn't go back.

    We are so happy we gave Milagro( Queen W) another try. Having moved out of the neighbourhood, a music gig brought us back there and we were craving Mexican. They have definitely stepped their game up from a couple year ago, place was bustling, staff were very friendly, bartender ( who came right up to our table!) was super in making sure the Magaritas were flowing! We were seated in one of their booths where the cooking happens, felt like we were right in the kitchen, soaking up the wonderful smells and the good vibes from the chefs. Great atmosphere, very authentic Mexican feel!

    While the food was okay, the service was horrible. They forgot several drinks and appetizers that we had to keep reminding them of and it was very slow. The waiter did what he could to make it right, but it made for a bad experience. We all expected the food to be great ... and it was only okay.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    Really enjoyed the food at the original Milagro on Mercer St when it first opened but the food at this latest outlet left something to be desired. Tortilla chips that had probably been sitting out all day and salsa that was so bland a jar bought at the supermarket would have been preferable. Ordered 2 types of tacos, pork and fish. The pork tacos had some spice but were dry despite the sauce and the pork was fatty. The fish tacos were soggy and sour tasting. Both contained more onions than meat or any other topping. My dinner companion had enchiladas that kept him up all night with heartburn even though he has no history of gastroesophageal reflux. Service was charming and accommodating, the only highlight of the experience.

    This was our 2nd visit to Milagro, and we will never recommend it or come back. My parents were visiting from out of province and they had been looking forward to dining here for weeks I felt extremely embarrassed and ripped off. Our reservation for 4 was sat at a table right beside the pass. I would expect that in a truck stop diner. Once we said we were going to leave they moved us upstairs. With a few larger parties the noise level was extremely loud, but in no way do I fault the restaurant Service was by no means personable in any way and the sense of urgency by our server, being she had such a large section, was non existent. For the price (incl. $15 sub par margaritas) I will bring a bottle of tequila on my next visit to taco bell.

    The food was really good with everything living up to expectations. We especially liked the authentic drink menu, although I would use a bit more clamato or tomato juice in the mensheladas. The only other comment is that I think any dish that comes with tortillas should come with an even number to be easily shared. But above all, we waited way too long for service. It may be the kitchen size or lack of staff? But I frequently go to a similar restaurant in madrid called chilango and it's table to table busy until1:00 am and you would be surprised how fast your food arrives.

    We had a group of six, each ordering different dishes, all were enjoyed. Lime juice marinated raw fish was well received, as was seared tuna. Service was good although very busy so a bit slow at the end getting the bill. Music selection could use some attention (suspect there is better Spanish music out there), as could placement of speakers. Nice to get Mexican food without having to stand at a counter.

    I booked a table for 2 on a Thursday night.... yet we still got stuck in the back section next to the prep table. The waiter brought us the wrong appetizer after an hour wait, so we just decided that we may as well eat it instead. The food was OK, but not great. This was my second time at this restaurant. Certainly not as good as the first time.
