The staff were great, the flavours were great but the food was all cold.

Went for coworker's goodbye party and server was getting automatic 18% gratuity but started giving attitude when she was not able to keep track of our group size. She got annoyed when a few additional coworkers attended and even grabbed a plate under me while eating.

Tacos were great. Service was ok, not great. Music was way too loud, making it hard to talk.

The food and margaritas were so bad and poorly made that all of us, which we were a group of 6, decided to stop ordering .

This a Mexican tequila bar which margaritas and tacos should be there speciality. A complete rip off !

The service was very poor. Wait person could not describe the very few items on the food list Did not know what the special of the day was. We were brought beer ..no glasses; food on a tray but no napkins, plates or cutlery. We got ourselves from the bar and other tables. Prices high, especially when service is so poor

Great food, great service. Subpar margaritas. Oddly chilly inside the restaurant which was a bit of a buzzkill.

If you're in the mood for Mexican (especially in the middle of a dreary Toronto winter), look no further than this cozy bar/resto for authentic Mexican cuisine and great service! A great place to go either before or after the theatre or concert, El Cabalitto never disappoints!

I find it incredibly weird that it's a Spanish restaurant but I didn't hear one Spanish song throughout the whole evening. Catering to a bunch of King st west people and the restaurant lacks an authentic feel. Servers should know how to pronounce the menu items.

There was nothing particularly noteworthy about the tacos. We ordered 5 tacos, 2 appetizers, and 2 drinks and our bill came to $94. $94. If the food was great, then maybe this would be ok? Either way, we are never going back.

We went for taco Tuesday and tacos were $3.5 each. We tried everything on the menu and they were all fairly mediocre. The ingredients quality was decent but the amount of ingredients were just way too much for the small tortilla that a taco sits on. It didn't feel balanced.

Service was good, we got seated quickly but definitely make reservation for Tuesday as it was a full house!

Enjoyed our dinner prior to seeing a show at the Royal Alex. Servers made sure they knew what time our show was at to keep service in line, theatre was a 2 minute walk also. Overall was great.

Everything was great and I would for sure come back, we were very happy with the food, service and live music. The only thing I was not happy with was paying $8.00 for an average bottle of beer. I thought for the price I was getting a pint of something of quality. Not that big of a deal though.

Overall we had a good experience and I've been back many times. The food is always tasty though I wish the menu could have more fish and seafood options for tacos. From time to time you have other fish available such as trout or salmon etc.

The Mexican singing is nice but when they are right beside your head it's a little much. It would be much better if they were in one area a little away from the dinners and the tables.

So I’d say the only disappointment started straight from the reservations. It was discussed that we’d have the back area to ourselves but they later called to tell me that there was a miscommunication between colleagues and the backarea was bought out. We were then given two seperate areas which was inconvienient and awkward for socializing and, at this point too late to find another venue. Food was delicious, music was fun, atmosphere was awesome, waitress was exceptional, bar staff was great but seemed short handed.

Everything was amazing except where we were seated. I booked online and in advance and even mentioned it was a bachelorette dinner. We were seated at a very less then desirable table that was quite uncomfortable. Food and service were very good other then that.

This was my 4th or 5th visit. The food is fairly priced and good quality. There’s a good selection of beer and cocktails. The service is quick so it’s great before the theatre. Tuesday is Taco Tuesday’s so it’s even more reasonable. I’ll continue frequently El Caballito when downtown.
