Today i got catfished by Mixto. This place did NOT deliver. We had a reservation. After being seated, no server came to the table for after 22 minutes. During this wait time I asked twice for our server and still no one came. That right there should have been a sign to get up. We had to wait another 20 minutes for drinks and when the food came out, our dishes were not complete. The French toast was not served with butter or syrup, my potatoes had no cheese on them, the food was not hot, etc. we requested the changes and the food was still brought out wrong. The breakfast potatoes had melted nacho cheese on them. Huhhhh. Who does that?? Our server was clearly overwhelmed and didn’t have the ability to correct any table issues. After we called the manager over for assistance the service or condition of our food still was not any better I’m going to stop there. I will not be returning. I know… they don’t care. 🤷🏾‍♀️.

Great brunch spot! Nice atmosphere and the food was amazing! I ordered the gallo pinto (costa rican breakfast) would highly recommend. Great service although a bit slow.

A wonderful dining experience at Mixto. Our server Jonathon was truly amazing. The emapanadas were delicious as was the garlic shrimp, sautéed chicken breast in a delicious mushroom sauce and the vegan paella. Will definitely go back again to this wonderful neighborhood gem!

While the waitress was really nice. Our food came out over an hour after we ordered it. She did not check to make sure everything was good till after we had almost finished. The stake my mom ordered came out under cooked and when we said something the waitress didn’t say anything. When I told the manager he took $10 dollars of the bill.

This is my second time coming to this restaurant, the food is good however, the service component has opportunities to improve.

Upon guest arriving and being seated, 2-3 minutes and that’s still too long, a server should engage guest with a warm greeting, followed by a service flow that is seamless. When food arrive, all acceptable sides, condiments and drinks should have been set prior to appetizers (starters) and preferred entree arriving to the table.

If staffing issues are the root cause perhaps, taking a forward-thinking approach will help to reduce less than stellar customer experiences. Again, the food is good, aside from that customers pay for an experience and anything less than extraordinary, is unacceptable.

This is a great restaurant to visit for a night out with friends... good food, good drinks and good customer service! The cucumber mule was tasty (way too much ice though), the maduros relleno was so delicious, and the salmon was cooked to perfection. Our waitress was friendly. I would definitely return again.

Slow service. Asked multiple times for basics like water, a box, the check. Would have ordered more drinks but was never offered. Food was ok, but expensive for the bad service and overpriced in general.

Scrumptious food! More than ample serving sizes. Attentive staff. We chose outside seating so although the weather was amazing, the street noise was overwhelming at times. Inside next time!

One of my favorites! Food and drinks don’t disappoint, ever! Only thing that’s a hassle is the parking, would def advise Uber/Lyft or catching the train and walking.
My drink: tropical mojito (their mojitos are great)
Appetizers: empanadas, Maduros rellenas
Meal: scallops and I substituted the risotto & mushrooms with yellow rice . Everything met my expectations per usual.

Without fail this restaurant always underwhelms on service. We arrived for our reservation and the host was on the phone. He didn’t make any eye contact acknowledging us and we waited for 5+ minutes on arrival.

We waited over 10 minutes for our beverages. Our food came very quickly which was possibly the only highlight of the experience. That said, our food arrived within 2 minutes of our drinks. We asked for bread to start the meal, that never came.

We requested bread at the close of our meal, that never arrived, with no acknowledgement that a part of the order was missed. Our second round of drinks took more than 10 minutes to arrive.

The food quality is what keeps patrons coming back. The service quality is mediocre at best.

Nice. Food was great except the carne asada was a bit chewy for a medium well (still tasty). Everything else was great. The scallops and shrimp were amazing and so was the shrimp ceviche and empanadas. Way more than I expected for a restaurant week menu. Great impression. Server made it extra special. Drinks on point as well. Great experience. Will definitely go back.

Really poor service. Did not receive by bar drinks until we were almost done with entrees (started with appetizers) - and had to ask twice.

Asked for more water (while waiting for bar drinks) and never got it.

The course pacing was terrible.

Server did not check in at all.

AND gratuity was added, which I did not appreciate given how poor the service was. It almost made it feel like they added gratuity because they knew service was bad and didn't car.

Food was OK but at the price point, with the bad service, not a value match.
