    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.

    We were happy when we stumbled upon Milagro last summer. We enjoyed it so much that we brought friends along this time. Since we were going to a bar on Queen West later that night we thought we would have dinner there first. Both times we went the meal was delicious, and they have a great tequila list as well!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 5/4/2013
    I found Milagro recommended on blogto.com. They suggested the tacos and the sangria....so that's what we got! The sangria was great, not too sweet and very delicious. We also ordered the guacamole which was great! The tacos however, were sub-par. They were very salty, overpriced and definitely did not meet our expectations. However, the service was great and the upstairs patio is a nice atmosphere. I would go back for the guacamole, ambience and drinks but not sure about the tacos!

    We had a great evening at Milagro on Queen West. Initially they seated in the back of the first floor, right by the open concept kitchen. Way to hot for our group. They were extremely accommodating and moved to a great table by the window on the second floor. Service was fantastic. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about everything on the menu. Guac was delish and I loved my shrimp tacos - they came highly recommended. I will return!

    Mexican is tricky if you don't start with the simple basics, but you needn't worry @ Milagro. The neighbourhood gem is ideally situated in the heart of Queen West and is warm and lively. The menu has all the usual suspects, plus a wide selection of beers, tequilas and great michelada's (beer with lime, spices, and a variety of kickers like tabasco, worchestershire, etc.) Awesome list of meats and tortillas, etc. Book reservations early, and ask to sit downstairs if you're only 2 or 4. More going on as you're close to the bar and kitchen.

    The food was okay. I wouldn't say it was great but pretty good. We ordered appetizers which were very good. Our main meal was okay. The margarita was very good so all in all is was okay. Would I go again, probably not but I wouldn't discourage anyone else to try it. It's a great neighbourhood place to eat and just hang.

    There is a lot of great Mexican restaurants in Toronto - this is not one of them. The chicken chipotle tacos I ordered did not taste like chicken, or chipotle. They actually had no flavour at all - strange! Take a pass and head to Playa Cabana, Mexico Lindo or Dos Amigos instead.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    The food was great. The problem was that we were ignored for most of the night. We had to ask 3 times to get a drink, and had to ask 2 times for our food, which arrived cold. We had 4-5 different people serving us. The fact that I was there with my mom made me feel like the staff didn't think we were cool enough. I work in a restaurant . I know mistakes can happen when it gets busy, but at my restaurant, if we serve food late or cold, we tell the manager and he apologizes and comps some of the meal.

    This place was great the only thing i didn't like was being charged an extra $2.50 to have salad instead of rice and beans as a side but then receiving a tiny salad of diced tomatoes onions and barely any lettuce. I am not exaggerating i am talking the size of my palm. I for sure will go back cause the taco rosarito was amazing but will not get ripped off for a non existent salad again. The tequila was so smooth and i was very impressed with the servers knowledge behind the tequila list. Overall salad rip off aside great experience!

    First time visiting Milagro's after hearing a lot about it and it definitely lived up to it's expectations. Everything from the the food to the ambiance was perfect for it's vibe. I had the Chicken Burrito and it was fab - just the perfect blend of ingrediants and not too cheesy! The buttery corn on the side was the perfect compliment. I loved the feel inside the restaurant and it gave off just the right amount fun plus intimacy. Will definitely be coming back!

    This was not my first time at Milagro and it won't be my last. The food, as always, was fresh and authentic. This review, however, is about the service, which was outstanding. I had made a reservation in error for 8 people - booked it a day earlier than I wanted. Oops! I received a call from the restaurant after I was 30 minutes "late" and, despite the obvious trouble I must have caused, the staff person was extremely courteous and friendly and, without even a hint of frustration in her voice, just rebooked our table for the next day. To make matters worse, when we arrived (on the "correct" day), our party of 8 had shrunk to a 6. Again, not a whisper of frustration on the part of the staff. We were seated and margaritas were underwa
