Chicken, Steak, Ground Beef, Fish, Shrimp or Veggie Tacos
Grilled Lobster Tail, Pickled Red Onion, Slaw and Microgreens
Fish or Shrimp Tacos
Long wait time to put order for food in. Waiter didn’t pay attention or offer refills. Food wasn’t tasty.
Ice cold food.
Environmental fee added to bill- have not had that at other south Florida restaurants.
20% gratuity added yet tip line still on bill- not explained ahead. It was explained bc of taco tuesday night-when asked however food was so poor so 20% is absurd amount. Very disappointed. Absurdly freezing also in restaurant .
Drinks with friends. Was wonderful to be able to reserve a spot on the rooftop. We thought there would be more of a “table” setting but it was more of a bar setting upstairs which was perfectly fine. View was great. Service was great. My boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed his lobster tacos. The guacamole was the best I’ve had in Florida. Love this place. Will definitely be a place I take friends when they come to visit in town!
Had a wonderful time in a wonderful atmosphere celebrating my job promotion.
Great Ambiance, Amazing Options for Drinks, Tapas , and Dinner.
My friends and I visited this place while on a vacation. I would rate this place zero stars if I could. Service was horrible. I don't even know what our waitress name or if she ever even told us. But she was very rude!! Not a friendly at all. Caught her rolling her eyes a few times. Tacos were nasty. Dry chicken and steak tacos. The pitchers of supposedly margaritas tasted like tart koolaid. The pictures online are deceiving and look nothing like what you order. Not the way we planned to spend our last evening
Great music and ambience
Nice atmosphere, great people and great service. We plan on coming back.
Party of 4. One loved the steak he had. Two said their taco salad had no flavor. I checked with the waitress to make sure there was nothing spicy in what I ordered she said no. It was too spicy for me to eat. They should know what's spicy and what's not.
The service and ambience was good. The food is ok.
It was a slow night so can't say too much about the service but they had really, really good food. We were told that most people know them for the night club scene but since it's tucked away on a side street, it's not typically busy other than on the weekends and Taco Tuesday, but glad we came in.
Food sucked it was cold. Margaritas were strong I’ll return for that. Management sucks.
I was surprised that the menu was so small. Drinks had too much ice and not a lot of alcohol. The music doesn’t start until 10-11pm, so if you’re planning on dancing after dinner, make a later reservation. We were finished by 8:30 and were bummed we didn’t get to dance. Clematis street was booming though.
Great food and Atmosphere
The waitress brought us water and didn’t come back for another 20 minutes, because my husband flagged her down. I ordered a tequila sunrise and idk what I got but it was not a tequila sunrise. My tacos didn’t taste all that good, we were Charles gratuity for “a party of 5 or more” but there was only 4 of us. Just horrible experience
Great Sunday lunch/brunch! Friendly staff and great food. To the reviewer who mentioned virus protocols—stay home if you’re worried! Let the rest of us enjoy our lives and support businesses!
This place wasn’t horrible and the drinks were really strong however, if you’re looking for the most gentrified tacos in town this is the place for you. The street corn was like Mac and cheese and the birria tacos... let’s just say if you’ve never had Mexican before don’t let this be the first place you come to.
Cinco de Mayo perfect food great and Margueritas
Great food and drinks, cool vibe
Lobster tacos are awesome! Staff fantastic. Would recommend.
Food wasn’t good, service took time because it was busy
The Worst waiters. Waiters are not train properly, they fight between each other, yu wait 80 minutes for your food, and when you complain they give you an attitude " Listen Sir, don't you see that we are busy"
Avoid this place
Extremely disappointed in the service at Banko Cantina. Severely understaffed and it took almost 45 minutes to get chips & guacamole. They have the potential to be a really great establishment if they can figure out how to better manage their staff.
Our order was missed up 5 times in total and no one came to say sorry nor put a face to it.
It’s a Tex-Mex food, not Mexican food. Great service and nice place
Everything went really great, can’t wait to go back !
Great location. Decor was awesome. Service was average. Food presented well but lacked Mexican flavor.
Rooftop experience with bottle service. Hard to get ahold of servers once it got more crowded throughout the night. Was not aware that rooftop on Saturdays was bottle service only, would have been good to know prior to reserving by making clear in app and elsewhere, as we had to buy a bottle and could not be seated elsewhere.
improperly worn masks by servers, and staff!!!! Don't go here unless you don't care about COVID precautions. Gratuity automatically added without regard for the quality of service. Food was Meh. Save you r money
We asked for a sample of mimosa, one regular and one made with pineapple juice and the server girl Sophia SMELLED THEM to determine which was which. During a pandemic she put her NOSE into our cup.
If you have like more than 6 ppl they will put your bill on 1 check- FYI
I made a reservation for 11, right when they opened and they still gave me a hard time about seating. My whole party was there on time and we still waited 20 minutes before being seated because she had to "move things around" ( referring to other reservations).
I'd go back with a small group.
Oh and ask for plastic ware. Trust me.
not many vegan options and the vegan options was questionable
Food amazing, drinks amazing, service amazing definitely coming back
The food and pricing is great, but the service is atrocious. Our waitress barely came to check on us, and when one person asked for something she would bring it back and hand it to a completely different person. It seems like because they include gratuity with their checks that they lack in actually trying to be good at serving.
First time doing taco tuesday and the food was so good. They played good music and the decor was cool. We have been there for nightlife and was great.
Great food and value! Tried a variety of tacos and all good. Atmosphere is great too!
We went for my best friends birthday. The flautas were delicious but the tacos were dry. For a Mexican restaurant I was hoping for better quality tacos with fresh toppings such as cilantro, tomatoes and/or onions.
The ambiance was awesome. The holiday decorations were great!
The service okay. What you would expect downtown.
Food was terrible.
Very accommodating nice staff we go every week we love it great place
It was my friend’s birthday we came for happy hour. Went to the roof top and got VIP it was fun recommend to go.
