I think our server was covering too many tables so the service was horrible. Took 40 minutes before they took our food order. He also never came back around after the food was served so I found a bus boy who could find condiments and never got a second drink. He was friendly enough, just spread too thin.
This place had GREAT FOOD and a great deal for brunch. Will definitely be coming back!!
Great margarita choices!
Lakeview neighborhood find for authentic Mexican fare! Gather with friends or first date for a grande margarita or exotic smokey pineapple one. Javier was a pleasant and graceful server. The table side guacamole is such fun and delicious. You will be swept away to embrace viva la Mexico!
I’ve been here many times. The food is generally okay, but the service is subpar, and on this last occasion, it was awful. We saw our server three times: once to take our drink order, once to take our food order, and again, when we flagged him down to get the check at the end of the meal. He never checked on us, which is a shame for him, because we would have purchased more drinks if he had showed up.
Fun night. Food was good. Restaurant was short-staffed that night. I felt bad for our waiter.
First time & will definitely be back!! Endless mimosas and great food, and you can't beat the ambiance.
We had a 615 res for nye. When we arrived we were offered only one table choice. It was near a door through which people were continuously coming and going. It was 1 degree outside. We sat there for a few minutes with our coats on, then realized we could not enjoy our dinner this way. We told the greeter and we left. This restaurant has a sister restaurant a few blocks away and I was amazed that the greeter did not at least offer to check the availability of a table at that location. We drove over there ourselves and were fortunately able to have a lovely dinner there. But the hospitality at the larger restaurant where we actually had reservations was non existent.
The food is great, the restaurant was freezing though. All guests were wearing winter coats.
Brunch was awesome. The mimosa brunch deal is great. The menu has a lot of choices. The chips and salsa was tasty! Mimosas were very good.
Really great value! Perfect for Sunday brunch/bottomless mimosas. Was very noisy but this did not get in the way of the great food, service, and quick refills!
Great food and service
Ok food. Slow as molasses service. You’ll be lucky if you can even get your waiter’s attention to order another drink.
To the manager's credit he comped our meal for what happened and my friend says this isn't typical.
However, it was a weekend, even though there were tables open, it took 15 minutes to get seated, once we were seated it took 30 minutes to get our first beverage. Then another 30-40 to get our food. The waiter basically ignored us other than delivering the food. Overall, it took 1 hr 45 minutes for 1 pitcher of plain margaritas and 2 plates of a basic entree. The food itself was good. Due to the manager being so apologetic, I'll probably try it again sometime to see if the service really was just a one time thing.
Our experience was okay. Waiters were nice, but they put our food at another table. After the other diners had opened my tamales with their fork, the wait staff realized the food was at the wrong table. Instead of offering to make us new food, they slapped it down on our table. Since the food hadn’t been eaten at all, we felt bad wasting it, but in the end the food was not very good. The tamales were very dry, bland, but super spicy. Will not return.
This restaurant group has some of the best food in the neighborhood and some of worst service. It was a Saturday night and the place was about half full. It took nearly 15 min to get 2 margaritas and another 15-20 minutes for a burrito and 2 tostadas. Our server was barely around and there was, what appeared to be a manager, walking around the dining room asking if everything was ok. He seemed to be oblivious to the fact that our waters were empty, we'd been sitting for a long period without drinks, the table next to us had their credit cards out, and the table on the other side was sitting there with dirty dishes in front of them, clearly done with their meal. We'll go back because we love the food, and we've come to expect drinks to take a while, but hopefully the service will be better.
Great food! Great atmosphere! Great drinks! Came in no waiting for table. Great service
Some real effort is going into making this place a bit more than run of the mill. The sopes with plantain showed some real imagination. Too many dishes are still just ordinary Mexican-American choice-of-chicken-or-beef. The special Baja tacos with grilled mahi-mahi had a superior salsa, and the refried beans were fresh. Margaritas tasted of tequila and weren't as oversweetened as some, but were quite tame. Would return, but would hope they could find a table for two that wasn't up against a large group that shouted from one end of their table to the other.
Our server was excellent. Great recommendation on the jalapeno margarita. Give him our thanks.
Food was very good. Prices were reasonable. The table spacing was a bit crowded, but the service was good. We walked there after a Cubs game. You definitely want to make a reservation if going after a game. A lot of Cubs fans had the same idea.
They need to do a better job posting their brunch hours on the website!
Come to this place a lot and generally have a good time. Service was awful this time around which was a bummer since we had out of town guests with us.
The only negative was the smell of the garbage in the patio area
Outdoor patio was great, service was friendly and timely - food could be better for the price.
Great patio space and a solid brunch menu with a great variety of options! Waiters were very generous and quick on the bottomless mimosas refills
The margaritas, queso fundido, and enchiladas - ask for the chorizo - are very good. The only complaint is the extremely slow service, even on a Tuesday night at 7 pm. While the water and chips came quickly after we sat down, after 10 minutes waiting we had to call the manager over to order drinks and the food. The drinks were slow in coming, as was the food. They seemed to be a bit understaffed in the front of the house and I assume in the kitchen. We love the food and drinks, but this is the third time we have been there and had the service problem.
As usual, I enjoyed the Mimosa Brunch at El Mariachi. The service is friendly, attentive, helpful. Starting your day with this Mimosa Brunch will start your day off right!
The staff unfortunately was a little slow and the waitress messed up an order. Management was accommodating and understanding, however unsure if I would return.
If you live in the neighborhood, it is a decent place for Mexican food. The drinks (margaritas, palomas, Mexican Mules) are pretty good without being overly sweet, the problem is that the speed at which they come out is consistently slow. The last few times we've gone, I didn't get a chance to order a second drink until my food was being delivered, but it always seems to come when we are done or almost done with our food. The manager is very attentive and takes note when we've waited a while (last two visits) but have not seen a resolution.
The food is pretty consistent and typical Mexican restaurant fair. Seems a tad overpriced for what it is, but what isn't?
When it is busy it can be pretty lively. I don't have kids but it seems kid friendly as there are always a few families when we are there.
Everything was good but it was too loud
