    When we were initially sat down for dinner, there was confusion between weight two waitresses as to who would attend to our table resulting in us witnessing them bicker. The portions for family style menu for appetizers were fair, however very small for the entrees, sides and desserts. We needed a gluten free dessert option for my niece which they don’t have for their family style menu and we were charged $11. The drinks were way too sweet. I would recommend diners to consider just ordering of the menu. The up charges on the family style menu are out of control and not worth the value.

    The food was delicious. We had tickets to a play and it took an extraordinarily long time to receive our food. We were rushed to make it to the play on time. In addition, half of the food I received was not what I had ordered.

    Very good food. Fresh guacamole. I had the spinach and mushroom quesadilla. It was amazing. I did not like the green rice that came with it. I would ask for the red rice next time.

    The outside tables really need umbrellas for the late-day sun. Our server disappeared after our food arrived.

    Usually have no problems at Magos but on all days for it to be good it would have been on Mother’s Day but that was not the case. It wasn’t even that busy at the time we went, the food was not seasoned well, took too long, came out cold, and just not a good vibe. Will probably not be back anytime soon.

    Food was ok, staff was arrogant and came off as racist. Insane concept for a restaurant specializing in MEXICAN food, we were some of the only Hispanic folks in there and they definitely treated us differently. Not a fan of the short and rude HISPANIC host - he should take some client service classes! He should learn to be kind to his own ppl!

    Food was amazing as always. However I think that families with children should have better control of their kids, meaning if it's a buffet with people walking around with a plate full of food in their hands, perhaps children literally running around into people with their hands full isn't the best idea
