The general manager was inappropriate and very unprofessional. I’m traumatized. I hope his manager reads this because he tried to charge us an extra 100 dollars for shots because he wanted to take them with us and we just ordered them for ourselves. He also wouldn’t allow us to order what we wanted off of the menu which was very off putting. He also criticized our age and dress — would not come back.
I went for brunch. The food is very small portions. A little salty. The drinks were great. However, for the price of the food it would benefit them greatly to focus on taste and satisfaction. Overall, a great ambience and vibe. I’ll be back to try dinner.
A bit overpriced for tacos (2 for $9) but the meals are worth it! ( they come with tortillas)
Bottomless mimosas for $15 and great music - what more can you ask for
Very good but the music was way too loud even after they had turned it down
The food was... ok.
Loved my server, great service!!! Distancing was amazing! First time here, I’ll be back
Amazing service and the food was delicious as well as the cocktails!
So glad you loved our hand crafted cocktails and cuisine. Thank you for being one of our first back inside!
Amazing food, terrible service. We waited an extra 30 minutes when we already had a reservation for 7:45. We were not seated until 8:15.
Dear Anonymous, Your feedback is appreciated on our First Day back to inside service after being closed for so long. We are grateful for your patience to and glad you enjoyed the food. We have time limits on the very Limited amount of tables we are allowed to serve at and rest assured we have reminded staff to enforce them. It's been an enduring journey during COVID for our independent restaurant. Thank you for your business.
I'm so glad my husband and I decided to give Bar Takito a second chance tonight. Our server Manny was extremely friendly and helpful with the menu and drinks. I'm not a fan of Reposado Tequila but he recommended a brand that is only available at this restaurant, so definitely ask for Exotico Reposado Tequila next time! The owner/operator Mario also came around to make sure everyone was taken care of and that's not something you see during any pandemic dinner services.
As far as food goes, it was so delicious. We ordered the traditional guacamole appetizer before our entrée and it tasted fresh. I ordered the OCTOPUS A LA PLANCHA and my husband ordered the SKIRT STEAK, AREPA... no complaints at all!
It was good , would have been nice to have chips and salsa
Had a great time dinning with my boyfriend
Date night. Was great
Everything was amazing! Great food and drinks! Very welcoming and Manny is by far the most attentive host I have ever seen. Will definitely be back!
The outdoor patio was amazing, and we went on New Year’s Eve and it was still nice.
Great strong mimosas tacos was ok great waiter as there was only one
This was one of the best date days with my wife. Our server was great, the drinks were excellent and the coconut shrimp tacos were da bomb!!! If I could give them 10 stars, I would!!
The manager was great and my friends really enjoyed themselves!
UPDATE: The owner reached out and we are going back for a second try. Will report back!
We had a reservation and when we arrived all the tables were taken. We waited 5 minutes at the front without being acknowledged. When the host finally got to us, he didn't apologize for the wait and he said it would be a 5 minute wait until we would be seated. We decided to leave after waiting 17 minutes for our reservation. They seemed very disorganized, no communication, and staff seemed like they didn't want to be there.
Cindy, a one-star review is painful (it affects the morale of an already depleted staff, due to Covid). We hope you'll consider changing it. Clearly, we weren't staffed for an unexpected busy day/evening. We truly regret (and apologize) that you were affected & can assure you this is not the way we normally operate. I'll send you a private message in hopes that you'll give us a second chance. On behalf of our limited staff, thank you for the consideration.
Sat there for 2 and a half hours and didn't even get a chance to order food because we were seen twice that whole time. Also showed up at 7 with a reservation and we never got seated at a table after they stuck us at the bar.
Fantastic service. Awesome drinks. Great food. Would definitely recommend.
There's an entire staff that make a genuine effort to create as good an experience as is possible. Todays guidelines make it difficult to deliver an experience you anticipate and deserve. We hope you'll reconsider your 1-share review. If you're wondering if it had a huge impact on us, the answer is a "real kick to the gut". Yet, I don't believe you intention is intentionally hurt our business, or those that a work with us. Thanks for the consideration. Mario (owner). 312-919-0929
It was for my brothers birthday. Manny was our server and he was great!
So glad to hear. Manny is pretty amazing person. We're glad it was a terrific & memorable experience.
Wish they could make their outdoor seating warmer.
We agree. We're surviving during such a unique time. I opted not to tent the environment because the cost that we could not endure. We're likely to hibernate the business, and look forward when we can re-open and be the experience you anticipate and deserve. Thank you for giving us a chance.
Not only was service amazing (friendly, very up to date on the COVID policies) but they also made you feel so welcomed! Not to mention food is so so yummy!
The food was great as usual! The restaurant did the best they could to accommodate on a chilly night outside with heaters. Love coming here!
I had a great time with family and friends for my birthday. Even though it was on the chiller side and we weren't offered blankets, I still enjoyed the food, drinks and vibe!
The Guacamole and Quedo Fondido was amazing!!! Also, my waiter and the manager were such nice, helpful, and caring hosts. You can feel that the staff is happy you are there and wants you to come back. The margaritas were delicious as well! I got one that I did not like, and they fixed it for me and got me a new one immediately. The only negative about the night was the margaritas can be a little pricey.
Excellent service by Alex. My group had a phenomenal experience. The weather was freezing, so the heating lamps and the blankets were a nice touch.
Great Autumn menu! Seasonal Margaritas are Amazing! Food is delicious, creative and such a delight! Service is on point! Love love love our Takito Bar. Blankies and heaters ... safe and enjoyable!!
Great service all around, treated us very kindly!
The food was amazing! I would absolutely go back. Recommend the steak tacos with chimchuri and coconut rice.
We sat outside so there was some city noise (train), but an occasional pause in conversation to sit outside/safely is 100% worth it. The food was really good. I loved everything from the chip to the queso to the octopus. Had no bad bites. I didn't realize drinks would be as expensive as they were, but it's my fault for not looking at prices before ordering the largest drink on the menu. Margaritas were delicious and offered a nice buzz. Staff was attentive and accommodating to some odd requests I had about to go items. Great experience and definitely will be back for takeout when cold weather hits.
The steak tacos were really good. Very small portions. The music was super loud, for the restaurant being limited capacity due to Covid restrictions.
Had a very good experience
Surprisingly tasty food, good drinks, good atmosphere! I will say though that it did feel like there was one waiter for all the outdoor tables, so tracking him down to order more drinks or food was a bit of a struggle, but aside from that would defs recommend! :)
Friendly staff, good food. Semi small portions but very tasty! drinks were great too.
Beautiful atmosphere drinks ok The price for the amount of food is not worth it $8 for two tacos is a bit pricey
Manny was fantastic, the food was amazing and a beautiful night sitting outside. Great night!
Brunch was very good
