The food was amazing and unique and the servers knew a lot about the food. They were way less knowledgeable about the wine offerings.
Ambience was good. Service was painfully slow. Hostesses were disorganized and unprofessional.
We had a great evening despite the chilly weather outside. The food, drinks, and service were all fantastic (Howard, our server was on point)! The molotes were on the small side, but very tasty, as were the baja tacos. The très lèches cake was amazing; would come back for that and drinks alone!
Since from the hosts until server and everything was perfect.
Great place, love the food and overall menu, staff is great. Wish reservation tables could se the entire restaurant, but overall amazing.
Great atmosphere and service. Making a reservation on a weekend is highly recommended to avoid long waiting list. True authentic Mexican cuisine right down to the margaritas but quite pricey.
Great decor and atmosphere. Portions were small but food was very good.
Staff was very accommodating
Food was quite good and distinctive
Awesome place and unbelievable service and ambiance. A lot less food/plate than most Mexican restaurants!
Excellent taste, voice, variety, service and ambiance !!
I always want to come back to this restaurant. Food and service are phenomenal. Recommend the mojito and pollo loco.
Amazing Mexican food! My girlfriend and I make the trip into the city for their fish tacos and churros! Not to mention, their guacamole is made in front of you at the table. Atmosphere is a bit on the loud side but still, amazing food!
This is the second time that I have brought family and friends here..never disappointed. The servers have been unfailingly pleasant, courteous and helpful. The food delicious and the atmosphere relaxed and inviting
Excellent margueritas! We had the shrimp tacos, fish tacos and pulled pork tacos - all delicious. Howard our server was excellent and very tuned into our needs. Churros and pineapple dessert were a great finish. The restaurant has been there for a while now, good to see it is still consistently good and hasn't lost quality.
One of the best mexican food in Toronto (coming from a mexican). The esquites and guacamole were delicious. I had the arrachera and it was perfect. I would only say that portions are on the small side. You have to make a reservation with enough time.
We had a great experience...
Excellent food. Amazing space with high ceilings, huge bright Mexican motif murals and upbeat music. Overall excellent. One of Toronto's best kept vibrant spaces to dine.
Really good food. Had the tasting menu, but was a little pricy
Food was delicious and server did an excellent job at managing our expectations with food and drinks. Would come back.
Amazing, always great food !!
Wow. Food was amazing ! Great venue :) recommend the tasting menu ! Just delightful!
Great service and food + cocktails, even in snowstorm. Tops.
I love the ambiance in this place. The margaritas are amazing and the food is delicious! I love that they make the guacamole right at the table. One of my fave places to eat!
Waiter provided excellent service and made our dessert special for our anniversary.
Food was very good, service was not great. Would ask for a refill on coffee and have to wait 15 min then we would ask for cream and by the time it arrives the coffee was cold.
Excellent service and great tacos!
Loved the tequila selection!
We enjoyed a delicious meal, great vibe, and excellent service. We’ll definitely be back! Be sure to make reservations!!
Would definitely go back with friends.
Service was very good. Thought that the meat platter could have had a little more meat. Otherwise was food was very good.
This was our first time dining at El Catrin and it was great. The food was really good and you can tell the ingredients are high quality. The restaurant itself is beautiful, a very good spot for date night! My girlfriend and I are definitely going back.
Patrick our server was fabulous. He gave great recommendations and worked with a few members of our group to ensure they had a full meal despite allergies and other limitations with food. It was a bit loud for the 6 of us to properly talk but the restaurant is very cool inside and worth taking in. Delicious margaritas!
Family outing...fun night, excellent service and food !
Very attentive waiter (Ricardo )
An excellent experience for my sons’s birthday
My choice for a restaurant to take two friends from out of town. Very impressed with the general ambiance and unique decor/experience, also the baja tacos were excellent. Slightly disappointed with the level of service and attentiveness from the staff. It wasn't overwhelmingly busy but we had a hard time getting service especially on drinks.
Loved everything. The server was excellent and all her food suggestions were delicious. Ambiance was amazing and loved the decor in the restaurant.
Everything was delicious and our waiter was very attentive. I found the food and drinks a little over pricer compared to other Mexican restaurants.
Fun, fabulous, server was knowledgable, professional, great sense of humor, good fast, fresh, yummy and the Margaritas outstanding. The price was a very pleasant surprise!
I had called the day before my reservation to remind them that it was for a bday and I would like something special after dinner as I didn’t want to have to do so infront of my friend, I was told that it was documented and not to worry. My request was forgotten about
I used to like the place, but tonight’s dinner is questionable. We waited at least 15 mins to have someone to take our order, and it wasn’t a very busy night. Food was so so, I remembered it’s better. Overall not the best experience.
noisy level was high - sitting to a loud mouth baby/todler.
coffee wasn't served till 20 minutes later but the server did a wonder job on apologizing and absolutely courteous.
It was great! Very cool atmosphere. Amazing tacos.
One of the best Tacos 🌮 in Town. Waited almost 30mins even tho I had a reservation and arrived on time.
