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.

Went for bottomless mimosas and our server did an incredible job at making sure they were truly bottomless! She was very attentive, as were the other staff members which made the experience very enjoyable.

The mimosa kit was recommended to our table and we loved it! Such a good deal and the brunch options were all delicious. Definitely a go-to place for brunch.

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.

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.

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!
