Mixto Ratings and Reviews
Terrible service, terrible food and terrible "Mexican" menu. This was an awful meal and was not served our horrible food for 40 minutes and was extremely overpriced for what we got. Brunch menu only...at 1pm? I must think of brunch being earlier. Will NEVER recommend or go again!
It was a tough night because we were there during restaurant week, so it was very busy and as a result the service and kitchen were slow. The restaurant week food was ok. I recall having a better experience on a regular night when they were not so jammed, and because their regular menu is interesting. To be fair, we could have ordered off their regular menu even though it was restaurant week, but we decided to try the limited menu instead and all regretted it later. Hindsight is 20/20!
We frequent mixto, but this experience was by far the worst. We arrived at 12 for brunch and there were only five tables upstairs where were seated. It took 30 minutes to get a glass of water and 45 minutes before our food order was taken. The server claimed they were short staffed. At about 1:00 we finally received our food and drink order but never received the coffee we ordered. We then asked the server for it 4 times and still never received it. The manager never spoke to our table instead appeared to be hiding in the office. Very rare for this type of service from here. Hopefully, they get back on track. The food was delicious though!
I walk by here often in nice weather and always wanted to go in. Love the outdoor seating and people always look like they are drinking awesome cocktails in fab glassware. Went last night, obviously no outdoor seating in January and it was restaurant week. Very busy Friday night. Started with the long cocktail list and selected two drinks. Guess we picked the wrong ones. SOOOOOO disappointed. My skinny margarita came in a boring wine glass and tasted awful - was so sour had to add splenda to it. Myhusband had classic mojito which tasted pretty good but was tiny - looked like a frosted juice glass. Looking around, people seemed to have better looking drinks than we did but all were the same price. Drinks are expensive there at 13 bucks a pop and up. Then, for the food. We did not take rest week menu - the third course is typically dessert and we did not want any. The Empanandas were delicious and the ceviche was also very good. My husband ordered Paella and did not like it. I ordered the lamb chops and risotto and was very good - but did not know it would come with heavy brown sauce over the chops - had them remove it. Overall, We like the Cuban food better at Cuba Libre and the Margaritas and glassware are way better at Las Bugambilias on South street (much better prices there too). The atmosphere is charming, fun and vibrant at Mixto and I would try it again - but on first visit, kind of disappointed. Our total bill came to 200 bucks (ordered a 35 bottle of wine) - this food DEFINITELY not worth that type of expenditure. There are much better meals to be had in Philly for that price.
We dined at Mixto for restaurant week. I have been to the restaurant before & always had great food & service (brunch & dinner). This visit was a little disappointing. Our server was great, but the kitchen was way behind. We waited a good 25-30 min between our app & entree, when it finally came out it was blah (salmon was dry & chicken dish lacked flavor).
I don’t think the menu options were a good representation of the restaurant. If I based my opinion off my last visit alone I would never return.
Dessert was good!!
Tis was our 1st visit to your establishment. It was a most enjoyable evening. We will be back. The food was delicious and well presented. The waiter was readily there when we needed his service. The only down side was being seated by the door. Sunday was a cold night and every time a group entered the individual on the end was chilled. We would definitely like to return in the spring when we can enjoy the outdoor dining option.
My first time to the restaurant and i was beyond happy with the service and the food is fabulous. My boyfriend is Puerto Rican and we are extremely picky when it comes to Spanish food besides his mother’s. This by far was the best Spanish food outside of his mother’s kitchen we have ever had..
Fantastic restaurant all the way around. This was our third visit to Mixto and it's extremely consistent with authentic food and flavors. The octopus salad was delicious and also the avocado omelet. Make sure you get the tostones (fried smashed green plantain)...truly scrumptious with their homemade salsa. Their coffee is excellent also. Great place to eat no matter what time of day.
We were a group of 8 so I expected to wait. However we weren’t even finished when a person waiting to be seated asked us how long we would be because they had had a reservation too and we were sitting at their table. I suppose the restaurant reserves this area for larger groups??? How did this person know that we were sitting at her reserved table? I am guessing the hostess told her? Then as we were working out the bill the manager? Came up to us and asked us how long we would be. Anyone could see we were counting money and ready to leave. Our waitress was sweet but the people pushing us out of the restaurant were rude. If you want groups out quickly your kitchen has to move more quickly.
We were seated immediately and the tables were very close together. We were greeted by the waiter in a very friendly manner and work promptly served, maybe even too prompt. The soup was served mildly warm and the paella was mediocre and without a lot of taste. They did bring up for a drink for the mistake with the soup. The waiter was very professional and friendly throughout.
