It's an OK place of OK Mexican food. On the plus side, the service was excellent: both informative and attentive.

Theatre prix fixe menu - affordable but unremarkable food. I’ve had better dinners here; next time I’ll order something else.

Food was good but pricey compared to similar restaurants in the city. A couple items were underwhelming flavour-wise but overall we still enjoyed everything. Service was a tiny bit on the slow side when it came to getting a second round of drinks, as this was not offered until first drinks were completely empty. Once ordered though, items were served quickly, and we understand Fridays are a busy night.

I have been to Milagro before but my experience has always been better than my last. The food was not great, my cocktail didn't taste as usual either. I wish the food was better that day and so my drink. The service was the only thing that saved the evening.

We loved our dinner here. The classic margarita and guacamole were outstanding. It felt like we were transported to Mexico while the snow storm was raging outside. Highly recommended, we will visit again.

Milagro on Mercer isn't as 'authentically decorated' like the Queen's West location, however, the Mercer location is MUCH quieter and larger, better for larger groups. And the food is just as delicious!

Went here for brunch. The food was delicious, I had the rancheros. The service however was slow, given that the restaurant was not as busy on Sunday noon. I had the rancheros combo, and the server needed to be reminded that coffee and dessert was included.

We went for a family dinner and were very pleased with the restaurant, food and service. Our server Morgan was very attentive without being overbearing. We had the trio botanero which was nicely done with the right consistency. We also had adobado which we found to be a tad bit too saucy but tasty.

For mains the fish was superb and done right. The potatoes were flavourful. The Tinga was a bit bland for my taste but cooked well. Adding a little bit of the hot sauce solved that problem.

For dessert the molten chocolate truffle is truly magnificent in taste and presentation. Need to save a lot of room in the tummy for that dish as it is quite big. Good to be shared between 2 or 3 people even.

All in all a pleasant evening. The music was a bit too loud to have a good conversation but a good place for friends to gather and enjoy some good food and tequila.

Too many issues to list but the biggest issue - disinterested servers. Every time we needed something they were socializing at the bar. Never again.

I have been to Milagro three times. The food is alright but slightly expensive for what it is and the service is unpleasant. I am quite disappointed but I would prefer to go to the other location on Queen West where I have felt way more welcomed.

Love the food and menu here. There was no music, brighter lighting and very slow service which was not what we expected based on previous experiences. Overall great value and love that there is no set menu for larger groups - a good option for birthdays just giving some constructive feedback. Will be back but next time can we have alittle better service / some music!! :)

Overall a good experience and convenient to the theatre. Sadly, it was the world cup play off and the mexican team was playing. Could NOT hear anything other than t.v. And very enthusiastic fans cheering and yelling. Enjoyed the food and setting otherwise and will return, hopefully at a quieter time.
