    Great service, food and atmosphere. You feel like you’re in Mexico on vacation. Margaritas are outstanding the el Diablo in particular! Our waiter explained all the salsas, chips were fresh! Excellent spot for lunch or dinner. I would definitely be back!

    Dinner with three of my cousins. Two of them had never been there and loved it. The only negative is the noise level. We are all in our late 60’s and early 70’s, so hearing is already a challenge. However, I still chose Mago because I love the atmosphere and food!

    The food was excellent, especially the moles. We go there just to try the mole of the week! We always try a mole sampler with our chips. We sat outside on the patio since it was a beautiful day! We enjoyed being outdoors. Service was good. It was a wonderful experience all around!

    First time dining here. It’s a bit of a drive for me but I will definitely be back. I loved the food, drink and ambiance. What could be better than fresh guacamole made at your table! Chips are served warm and a sampler of Molè sauces complimented our dinner.

    Everything was great. The food and staff was wonderful. The only slight issue was that we did feel a little rushed. It wasn't enough to be an issue, but we would have enjoyed a coffee and dessert after dinner, but the table was cleared and we had our check before we even talked about dessert. However, I love Mago and will go there again soon.

    Very innovative menu and good quality. When did it become birthday central? It is disruptive to have tables all around me with sparklers and singing—probably 10 times in one hour. How about a 1x every hour birthday celebration for the entire restaurant?
