We ordered the 'shrimp ceviche' which was terrible, it seemed that they put some frozen shrimp in the microwave and make it a 'ceviche'. Drinks were pretty average and came out almost when we were finishing our meals

We had a great time at Bar Takito but it was lacking in a few ways. I liked my arepa benedict. The tacos were smaller than expected but tasty. The bottomless mimosas were great but they cut our time short to 60 minutes instead of the 90 minutes stated on the menu because it turned 3:00pm. We asked if we could get another drink or something to compensate for the missing 30 minutes we paid for but our server said no. It was hard to get our server's attention throughout. When we were served our food, we didn't have any cuttery or napkins and weren't offered hot sauce until we nearly finished our food. Not great in terms of service overall. I would maybe recommend bar takito to a friend but would let them know not to expect much in terms of service.

This review is for the bus boy that decided to tell our table of 6 that we surpassed our table time limit of “1.5 hours.” I booked this reservation thru open table, and in the fine print it listed the different time limits for various numbers for people per table. For a table of 6 the time limit was 2.5 hours. I even called Bar Takito a few days prior to confirm that the time limit for a table of 6 was 2.5 hours, and they assured me it was.

But then this bus boy. He made our entire table feel very uncomfortable on how aggressive he was. I told him how I booked thru open table, how I called to confirm the time limit, and I even showed him the reservation on the open table app where it clearly states the time limits for various number of people in a party.

When I asked to speak to the manager to show them the proof I had, he continued to argue with me and state that “the wording on the app is from last year.” I then again showed him that the time restrictions are listed under “April 24” and the covid guidelines.

What made this whole encounter even more frustrating was that there were tables of 6+ who were there before my party showed up, and were even there after my party left.

Our waitress was WONDERFUL, it is this man that ruined our experience.

Service was dreadful. Drinks were good. Food was mediocre. Can’t believe they serve $10 tacos on a paper plate.

Bar Takito was a great bottomless mimosa brunch experience. The food was delish, I got the Chilaquiles with chorizo on the side. Yumm! Mimosas were flowing and the atmosphere was the perfect Sunday Funday! I will definitely go there again for more Sunday Funday Bottomless Mimosas 🥂

Our table was 30 min late after making the reservation. When we finally got seated there was a table next to us with 12 people ... no one was wearing their mask and kept walking around. At one time one of them came to sit at our table with NO mask on. We kindly had to ask him to leave since we didn’t even know him. We told the staff and you would think after breaking all the regulations they would kick them out. Instead they lingered around for another 45 minutes... with covid cases going up I wouldn’t be surprised if we close down again. I just hope restaurants would be more strict and compliant with the regulations since they already lost so much during this pandemic. Besides that, the food was amazing and so were the margaritas. I just wished I had a better experience.

My first impression was lots of noise. My second was very few vegetables. The margarita was very good. My husband enjoyed the very tasty skirt steak but had to cut it into very small pieces because it was chewy. I found the tacos small but tasty. The cheesecake for dessert was bad. I don't think we'll be going back.

They have a good menu, but I tried two tacos, chicken tinga, and coconut shrimp and the coconut shrimp one was just not good. Loved the chicken ones though! Great drinks!

Service was alright, but not excellent. Once it got busier, it was pretty loud and the music seemed to get louder too.

Not a lot of food options. Had the Paloma and it was very sour. Mojito was also not very sweet. Food is okay, the steak is very juicy and has a lot of flavor. I wish the menu had more options, it only has tacos and 4 main course dishes.

We never even had a meal. I had a reservation that I had to wait 30 minutes for because I asked to be seated outside. The manager was nice at first but as soon as we got to our table he became impatient with us because no one had came to our table to help us in time. We LEFT!!!

Love coming to Bar Takito for bottomless brunch!

We've been coming here for years, and it has remained a favorite even through this past year!

The service was nice. We made multiple reservations and they did they're best to seat us next to each other.

The food portions are super small. It took 20 mins for us to even get our first drink or even order anything. Bathrooms were a mess they were out of toilet paper completely so everyone was using paper towels. Music was so loud in there I had to scream over it in order to talk to my cousin across from me. I get it was a Saturday but they need to have a better system and more staff. I don’t think I’ll be coming back there anytime soon.
