Bar Takito - West Loop
It was my birthday celebration and heard nothing but good things about this place. The food was amazing but our server was not. Our friend arrived 30 mins before we did and had the bottomless mimosa. Not sure if it was because she was alone but the server walked right passed her and the empty cup until we got there 30 mins later. When we got there we had 2 refills and she rarely came to the table, when she finally did for the next refill she filled it half way and filled other tables completely. The music was very quiet.
The food and drink deals are a great value and this is the perfect place for a friendly gathering/meal.
Had a party of 6 last night and we wanted to love the experience but.... The food was ok to solid. The octopus main had good flavor, but very little actually octopus; it was a massive bed of potatoes with 4-5 little pieces of octopus. Just an example. The real issue was the service. While our server was nice, I'm not sure if there was an issue in the kitchen or if she was new, but parts of our order was forgotten and everything took an insanely long time to actually get to us. We spent the entire night feeling like we needed to order everything all at once for fear of having to spend the night to actually get it all, and then pray that it all actually arrived. Noble effort but not a repeat for our group.
Good happy hour deal
Thanks for taking the time to let us know! We hope to see you again!
Friendly staff, fast service, enjoyed my lunch break.
Your feedback means the world to us and it puts a smile on my face to hear you had such a positive experience! Please come see us again soon!
Tacos ratings: fish, steak, and very last the chicken. Needs more sauce or juice.
The pineapple margarita was overpowering sweet. Should've gotten the cucumber flavor.
Highly recommend! The tacos are so good! You can't go wrong with any of them! Also it's $10 for botomless mimosas! It's such an amazing deal! Basically everything was very reasonably priced! Also we had an awesome server!
Christina, we’re so glad your time here was an enjoyable one! Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we’re doing!
A really great option for a quiet relaxed lunch in the West Loop. Fun, unusual taco flavors.
Brunch food was just ok. We did the $10 mimosa deal and the waitress was very attentive. She made sure we always had drinks!
Thank you Elizabeth, your feedback is so important to us!
The hostess made the seating situation more complicated than it needed to be. Need to improve on accommodating large parties.
We’re sorry for the confusion with the hosts. Your feedback is valuable to us as we are always trying to improve what we do here. Thank you for taking the time to share with us.
Our waiter was amazing, however the hostess was extremely rude and made my friends and I want to leave. We already had a reservation and since it was saturday night we couldn’t find anywhere else to go, so we decided to stay. I showed her my open table reservation and she told me we would have to wait at least 30 minutes for a table even though there where maybe 4-5 tables available on top of having my reservation. I told her that can’t be right because I see empty tables and we came 5 minutes before our reservation. She then proceeded to roll her eyes at me and grabbed our menus without saying anything and tossed them on the table next to her and told us to sit. I then saw her and the other hostess making faces while looking at our table. I have never experienced that kind of treatment before. If she wanted to talk about us she could’ve gone to the back. After our dinner which was okay( the waiter was super respectful) I came up to her and asked her for her name. She looked me in the eyes and said “umm no” and walked away. Overall I will definitely not be coming back. Although the food and waiter were great, coming into an establishment and getting that kind of treatment from a person who’s job it is to make you feel welcome made me never want to come back. There are so many places in the city that are much more professional and I would recommend going ANYWHERE else because receiving this kind of treatment from a place where you are paying for their service is unacceptable.
Great drinks. Food was fine - you must like coconut, as it is in many of the dishes. Tacos are a little too complicated.
Your feedback is invaluable to us, thank you for taking the time to let us know!
Food was salty and the waiter was rude. Probably not going back
Friendly service! Flavorful food! Restaurant Week Menu. All tacos amazing! Tried large variety! Amazing fried potato appetizer! Parfait dessert was highlight - and I never even eat dessert. Great experience! Will return!
Wow! We couldn’t be more pleased to hear this! Thank you!
We tried the lunch menu during Chicago Restaurant Week. The complementary chip and salsa is nice. Appetizers are good but small in portion. Two taco choices are good, especially the crispy fish taco is tasty. The dessert was impressive - refreshing and not too sweet.
My friends and I got drunk of mimosas and ate great French toast. Recommend 10/10
The food and service was amazing. We'll definitely return! The drinks are amazing too.
We’re very pleased your experience was so positive EbonyM! Please come see us again!
It took us 15 mins to be greeted and asked about drinks (Mojito & Watermelon Margarita).
It took another 15 mins for those drinks to be brought to us.
It then took 20 mins for our actual server to come & take our food order.
When we received our food, everything looked great. But being pescatarian, what we were looking forward to the most (lobster tacos), ended up being our biggest disappointment. They were literally rice tacos. There was no lobster in there whatsoever.
Taco Tuesday was a big disappointment for us. We more than likely won’t be back.
Great place. The food was really good. It was five of us and everyone loved what they ordered. We had a hard time finding parking and the service was a little slow but overall we had a good experience
Great food. Great service. A little loud. But overall great experience.
It’s very loud, the food was cold once it got to us and the serving of the food was kind of complicated, but overall the ambiance was nice and will try again
Really disappointed. It was not packed despite being a Friday night. Nevertheless service was very slow. Our tacos were cold by the time we got them and part of the order was wrong.
Upon arriving and checking in for our reservation, we were told by the host that they had overbooked. We could be seated but another reservation was coming in and we would have to be done with the table or move to the bar to accommodate somebody else's reservation. I have never experienced this in any other restaurant and believe it is unacceptable. Besides that, the drinks were average and the food was mediocre. A crunchy fish taco meant a microwaved fish stick in a tortilla, again not acceptable. After trying that, we decided to leave and not waste anymore time or money at this establishment.
Thank you for your review. We apologize for your negative experience with us. We are taking the necessary steps to ensure this miscommunication doesn't happen again. We do a 2 hour table time limit during our brunch service. However, since you mentioned this was during dinner, it is not acceptable. We want our guests to feel welcomed and definitely not rushed. Sending you a private message now to rectify this.
The brunch is fantastic. Great food and $10 bottomless mimosas. Highly recommend.
Your kind words mean the world to us! I can’t wait to share this with the staff! Thank you!
Went out with Clients and had a great time. Service, food and environment was amazing. Highly recommend.
Food was not good. Ordered 4 different types of tacos and not one of them was good. Very disappointing.
Our server and the food were great but the host was rude upon our arrival as we stood in front waiting to be greeted only to have him stand there with his iPad . I understand that nye is a busy night but to have your customers ignored upon arrival is rude, once I approached him he indicated to give him a moment.
Aracely, Thank you for your review! I'm glad you enjoyed the food and drinks. I'm sorry your initial encounter with the host wasn't what you expected. We definitely want our guests to feel welcomed. I'm going to send you a private message.
We had an amazing time at Bar Takito! Our server, Alex, was incredible and we were very happy with the drinks and food!
Taylor, Thank you for your review! Alex is awesome. Glad you enjoyed it. Come back soon and see us!
Drinks were amazing! Vibe was chill.
Received very poor service from Bar Takito. Would not return.
I sincerely apologize that you did not get the experience that you were looking for at our venue. We do strive to offer every guest the best experience possible however, at times we do fall short. I'm sending you a private message now so we can resolve this.
It was fabulous. We celebrated my daughter’s birthday before heading to the theater to see Mean Girls. I would highly recommend the restaurant and plan to go again.
Great service, good food, one negative chips and salsa not included.
Excellent location right next to the pink line Morgan exit. Service was excellent. Very busy on Thursday night. The basic guacamole was well flavored for a smooth more whipped style. Fish on tacos were crispy but the coconut did not add anything to the dish.
Brunch was amazing! Food was fantastic and you can’t beat their bottomless mimosa deal!! The staff was lovely and they were very accommodating to our large group of 20! They were amazing with the speed of service as well and we all had a blast. Will definitely be back!
Great food, great staff, great ambiance!
Great drinks, great service, great live band! I recommend the shrimp tacos. The ropa vieja was ok, and the steak tacos disappointed. Still, it’s one of my favorite places and I would go back.
Food was good but it was not plentiful for the price. It was a busy Saturday evening and the service was just ok. I would recommend it as I feel on a weeknight they would have a better outcome. I loved the vibe.
Bar Takito always impresses with good food and good service!
Great place for a birthday celebration with a big group
