    Chantico’s nice atmosphere, decent service and creative dishes were just what we needed for a leisurely brunch among friends. The charred sweet potato was outstanding and most of the other food was very good. We stayed to chat for a long time and no one rushed us out. Definitely recommend.

    I used to love Chantico, till my last dinning experience. The services wasn’t great and my boyfriend also got very sick from his pork dish. We ordered the street corn special as well, when it came to the table it was on the cob with the husk attached to me and made it almost impossible to eat. We ask our waiter if the kitchen could cut it off the cob so we could eat it as a side with our food and he said no and that it would not be possible. I’m sure It would have been easy for the kitchen to do so. We will not be returning to Chantico because of this last experience.

    Service was excellent. The soup- posole and coconut sweet potato- are world class. The special corn- outstanding. Margaritas are perhaps the best in the Valley. This restaurant is a great choice.

    Probably the worst representation of Mexican food in the valley. Ordered the sweet potato salad......I should've known better to order an entree after being served what looked like something fed to animals on a farm. The fish tacos looked promising, but were so greasy and spicy, my boyfriend stopped after the first bite. The salsa served with the chips was probably the highlight of the meal. The chips had a rancid tasted, like fried in the leftover grease from the previous nights meal. Do yourself a favor, there are far better restaurants in midtown at half the price.

    Our server was attentive, and the food was delicious. There was a little issue with the checks at the end; the server did separate it, but it was done incorrectly. She said that she thought we moved seats, but we hadn't so I am not sure what happened, but it wasn't that big of a deal. We will definitely be going back!

    The bone marrow was by far the highlight of the meal. The queso dip should have come with tortilla chips instead of a tortilla, and when we requested more tortilla chips it took them so long to bring it that the queso was cold and hard already. Our waitress must have been really busy because we hardly saw her, and whenever she came by, she forgot to bring what we requested previously. The servers that brought our food seemed new and unhappy to be there. They didn't know what they were bringing us, brought us the wrong items, and started clearing plates that we were still eating from while frowning and unhappy the entire time. They also discontinued my favorite drink there.

    Beautiful atmosphere. If I tasted with my eyes this would be a 5. Unfortunately the pretty plated food didn't carry over to quality and taste. The rice & black beans didn't really have flavor. The rice was just plain white rice and the top half of the serving was decently cooked. The layer underneath was hard like raw or burnt rice and was a darker color and crunchy. The flautas at first bite revealed a gum wrapper size paper that looked and textured a tamale wrapper/parchment paper.

    Was disappointed in Chantico for the second time now. When it first opened the food was fresh and tasty - perfectly seasoned as well. The service was on par too. This time the food AND the service were just not good. The chips were super oily and overly salted. Same with the shrimp, chicken and beef tacos. The flautas were dried out and the birria tacos were tiny with not much meat. The server didn’t know her liquor even though she told us to just “pick a tequila”. When we did just that just had no idea of the one we chose. I had to point it out to her on the bar shelf. I ordered a spicy margarita and it came as a regular. The two drinks my son and his friend ordered were SO sweet and not to mention - super tiny. Just an overall super disappointing experience. Last time we went the food was just as bad but since we had had many great experiences there before we decided to give them a second chance….we won’t be making that mistake again.

    This was my first time here and it was amazing! They had several vegan options and they were DELICIOUS!! I loved the spaghetti squash flautas and banana leaf tamales. The chips and salsa were on point as well. YUM! Of course if the vegan is this good, I'm positive the meat and dairy options are just as tasty. The prices are very reasonable as well. RUN to this place! It will not disappoint. THANK YOU Chantico for offering legitimate vegan options. I'm a foodie and new vegan and your food made my heart happy.

    This was our first visit and unfortunately left disappointed. We started the meal with appetizers, Organic Beets and Charred Sweet Potato. The sauce used for the beets was good, but overall, the beets fell short. As well, the sweet potato dish looked amazing, but the potato just didn't have it. Entrees consisted of some kind of shrimp dish and tacos for the other dinner. The Shrimp entree was acceptable and the tacos, while tasty were greasy. Service was average but pleasant, probably the shortest time we have ever experienced at dinner. The ambiance is pleasant (we sat in the booth room) but maybe we just hit a bad night. Overall, food presentation is appealing.

    Great service by Nathan and the manager (didn’t get his name), even when needing to add a couple more seats to my reservation same day. Everyone in my party enjoyed their entrées and drinks for brunch. Patio seating was perfect on a beautiful day.

    I have to say that my meal was disappointing since I ordered the tacos and discovered that instead of having crispy taco shells this place deep fries the entire taco (which results in over cooked, burnt contents and a shell that was literally dripping in oil). I’ve never been to another Mexican food restaurant that does this. There was already quite a few other deep fried items such as crispy flutas, chimichangas and chips. I wouldn’t go back but the place has a nice atmosphere but isn’t the point to have great food?

    Deep fried tacos that were dripping with oil and also overcooked meat was disappointing. The place has a nice ambiance and descent service but having many of the menu items being deep fried already (flauta, chimichanga) and now deep fried tacos was a bit much. It’s not a place that I’d visit again.

    All of the wait staff were fantastic! She gave great menu suggestions. Food was really good too. We had the queso which was different than I have had in the past. The cheese was thick and served with a warm flour tortilla on the side. The dip was so good when put on the warm tortilla. We then split the sprimp flautas which were very good as well. Lots of food. The restaurant has a great vibe. We sat out on the patio which was nice. You could hear a bit of street traffic but not really an issue.

    Overall, it was a beautiful restaurant but the foot was quite lacking and overpriced. Service seemed slow and to top it all off they add a 2.40 credit card fee on the bill even if your paying cash. Don’t think I will be going back anytime soon.
