    The food, atmosphere and over all vibe of the restaurant was cool and low key fancy! Our waitress did not seem to want to get to know us or take an extra minute. Unfortunately the beet salad was too spicy and asked if it could be re done. No problem it was but they charged us for both. Mole sauce was great

    We’ve dined here several times and love the ambiance! We were a party of 5 and the bill was about $400. The margaritas are always great but the food has become less impressive. I had the battered fish tacos. It lacked flavor and the rice was very dry. The guacamole was served beautifully on a plate swirled up. We ate only half of it. It’s bad when guacamole isn’t gobbled up. We ordered two desserts to share and could not finish both because the tres leches cake was dry, old or missing the cream? The the other tasted off. Maybe it was an off night… but it was TGIF!

    Great service, great ambience, and great food! Had the Birria tacos, fried chicken tacos & the fish tacos. All were amazing. Chicken was a little spicy, but good! Also had the mezcal old fashion. It was good, but I’d probably go with an original old fashion next time!

    I have dined there several times and usually love it. Last night was the first time we didn’t sit in the area where the booths are. We were in the area behind the reservation desk. The music was so loud that I could not hear the person across the table or the waiter. As the area filled up, everyone was talking loudly so they could others. The overall noise level was so obnoxious that we could not enjoy ourselves and left.

    Received the email about their new Taco Tuesday deals in the Cantina, got right in and had the most amazing time! JC was great with his table touches and our server was super attentive. Cannot wait to enjoy their delicious food at such shockingly low prices every Tuesday in the cantina from now on :)

    Great atmosphere and service staff. The drinks were good and fairly priced. My chimichanga was huge but really lacking in the amount of pork green chili filling. I was digging for the meat through layers of chewy tortilla dripping with sauce. In half of the chimichanga, I think I got three good bites of tasty pork. My husband got the pork shank and thought it was good but there was an unusual spice there that he didn't particularly like so he too did not eat all of his dinner. All in all, disappointed.

    I wouldn’t recommend Chantico based on service. The food was great. The ambience is very nice. The music is at a good level. Everyone was friendly. Our server was occupied with a large table that came in after us. We were celebrating a birthday. We were definitely an after thought. We were told if we needed anything to holler. Server forgot our appetizer, but we didn’t say anything cause our food came and we realized he forgot. It wasn’t on the bill. For the price paid, the service should match. Lie I said, server was friendly, but he just treated us like “whatever”.

    What a find! The restaurant is hidden behind lots of tree and white lights on Camelback. Great atmosphere with a big outdoor area. Hard not to fill up on chips and salsa - yummy. The chicken enchiladas with green sauce were amazing. Big chunks of chicken with rice and beans on the side. Definitely coming back!

    We sent back 2 out of the 5 dishes we had ordered because it either too salty or tasted horrible. The other dishes tasted good but I wouldn’t go back there again. The place and the ambiance looked great though!

    Food came out luke warm after waiting an hour for the food, ordered the large plate chicken dish and the description did not mention it was dark meat so my husband sent the dish back because he doesn’t eat dark meat and the waiter stated the kitchen is backed up and didn’t know how long it would be if he ordered a different meal so he ended up not ordering anything and shared with me. Also the salsa spilled all over the table and the waitress didn’t even offer to clean it up. Won’t be going back

    Chantico is one of the restaurants I go from time to in the Phoenix area and usually food is well curated but this last visit was quite disappointing for a few reasons. They were out of my go-to fish taco but it was a not a big issue for me since they still have some good food and I had chicharron tacos and carne adobada. But what was really sad is that I invited friends over because of their 3 leches that I have had lots of times before at Chantico but this time around it was extremely dry and not soft at all for a sponge cake. All the rest of the experience was still pretty good, ambience is great and service was nice.

    Excellent food and service in a modern and gorgeous venue! There is indoor, outdoor, and bar dining. Chantico has food from various parts of Mexico with authentic flavors and bursts of surprises. We went for happy hour and tried a few food items from their menu and drinks. All were exceptional, not just good, but excellent. Each dish was beautifully prepared and flavored. Even their salad had an Agave-Lime Dressing that was outstanding. Their drinks have creative twists too (alcoholic and non-alcoholic). We had the Paloma (Tequila Blanco, Grapefruit, Citrus, Soda) and Sobrio Y Loco (Zero-Proof Gin, Zero-proof Aperitif, Rosemary-Chamomille Syrup, Grapefruit, Citrus). So yummy! There are inspiring options for both meat eaters and vegans. We cannot wait to go back. THANK YOU!!

    Having been to Chantico nearly 10 times, I mostly know what to expect when dining (exceptional food, attentive staff, etc). This last visit in was by far the best ever (an already high bar) because of our server, Megan. She went above and beyond to make the experience amazing for all of us. 10/10 I will always come back to Chantico. P.s. The parking is no big deal, definitely not a reason to shy away from trying this amazing restaurant.
