Went for Winterlicious!
Since, they offer good variety.
Food far too greasy, I can actually see my mushy bean shining with oil! Otherwise, the food taste fine!

I used to come to Milagro often but haven’t been in a couple years. We were a group of 5 and ordered tacos. When the tacos arrived, they were all cold. One of my tacos was the Rosarito which is a shrimp taco (with 3 pieces of shrimp on it). I had simply taken one bite and we sent them all back. When they returned our food, my taco came with the tortilla replaced but with one less shrimp. They just reheated the tacos including the one I had taken a bite of. It costs $8 for ONE of these shrimp tacos and they couldn’t replace that one cold shrimp? When you’re charging $8 for one taco, (ridiculous, by the way, as they used to be much more affordable) at least satisfy the customer by replacing the full dish. A good restaurant would never do this. The quality of the dishes has gone down significantly and I won’t be returning to Milagro.

The restaurant was closed even though online they were open and I was able to reserve a table. We cabbed all the way there to see them shut the door in our face. Very disappointing.

Food was bland, greasy and way, way overpriced. I massively regret booking here when there are so many good options in the area that have good food and are much better value. The Alambre dish was just nasty, a disgustingly greasy, flavorless mess of a dish. Refritos were inedibly salty. Al pastor taco left a huge pool of oil behind on the plate and all over my hand. "Mexican rice" was hard and had a weird, plasticy taste. Even the tortilla chips hadn't been fried properly, soft and chewy rather than crispy. At least the guacamole was decent. But overall one of the worst restaurant experiences we have had in a long time.

Food was good but service was awful; appetizer never came, the rest of the food took a long time, the tortillas where cold and at the end we were charged for the appetizer that never came.

If you want to go to Milagro, I recommend the Mercer location where the service is flawless!

I have eaten here before and the food is superb; however, I ordered the large margarita, that states it has 2.5 ounces of tequila. There was absolutely no alcohol whatsoever in it and they were premade. It tastes like a simple glass of juice and o was disappointed. Otherwise, the service was very good and again, the food was amazing. Alcohol non existent. Disappointing for a Mexican restaurant to have such terrible margaritas. :(

I love Milagro. I haven't been to either of the other locations, but I love the atmosphere and service at the Queen West spot. The food is delicious, and very fresh. Great flavours, very generous portions, and incredible guacamole. This place never disappoints -- we go every few weeks, if we can!

Excellent Mexican food that goes way beyond the typical burrito/taco/enchilada options. Flavorful fish, seafood and pulled pork stuffings, fresh salsas and great spices. Service is casual but knowledgeable and friendly. Great atmosphere!

Milagro is my go to place for Mexican food. Love their consideration for vegetarians and vegans. The tamarind based cocktail is delicious and so is everything on the food menu.

Went with a couple of girlfriends on a Thursday night, and it was a lovely evening out. The food was good (I had the mushroom and cheese taco which was delish and my friend really enjoyed her fish tacos - I believe they use cod, not basa) and the churros were amazing. The sangrias were standard, not bad, but nothing outstanding. If the weather permits, it's a good spot to people watch on bustling Queen West. Not exactly a cheap dinner (the bill for 3 of us came up to about $120 I think - drinks, trio appetizer, tacos, and shared an order of churros), but would recommend. And the server was very attentive and helpful, which always helps :)

Honestly the food wasn't great. Would not recommend if you like authentic Mexican food. The guacamole, well let's just say I've had better from a grocery store. My friend and I went here because it was near where we were and wanted some good Mexican food. I regret spending $50 on two tacos, a burrito and churros. Usually I like to tip, I Barely left one. The service was so slow, it wasn't even full. If the service was good I could overlook the bad food. The whole atmosphere just was bad, will never go again and will not recommend.

I wanted to like this place but the food was pretty terrible. I had chicken tacos and the chicken was dry and grey, and the taco itself was extremely bland. I understand Mexican cheese is a bit flavourless but there was absolutely no seasoning or spice, and the lettuce was doused in olive oil which I found odd for a taco (but at least it was great olive oil!). Margaritas are okay but very weak for the price. My friends shrimp taco smelled and tasted really fishy, and the service wasn't very attentive. I will not be going back here.

This was our second visit, on this occasion for my Mom's 79th birthday. service was friendly, ambiance was good, table was comfortable. only drawbacks were: they ran out of the crème brulee, a second choice was offered, but not similar, and a "sorry" was what was offered. food was delicious, but a tad overpriced as per the portions. I was in for Winterlicious previously, was surprised the restaurant wasn't participating in summerlicious. would return, but would like to see some variety in the menu and better sized portions for the price.

Had the heuvos rancheros weekend brunch special that covers everything: juice, full meal, fruit, coffee, and churros. It was excellent. Added Mexican chocolate to drink at the end with the churros. Service was very good and friendly. Have also had other meals here and they are also very good. Would recommend for casual dining.
