Horrible! Got there at 7:00 and left at 9:15 and never had dinner. All we received was appetizers and not even all the ones we ordered. The kitchen must have been having some serious issues. I felt bad for the waiter- he kept coming back and telling us they ran out of the food we had ordered. POOR MANAGEMENT from the kitchen.
Hello, thank you for choosing to celebrate Mothers Day at Chico Malo, I have sent you a private note following up on your experience.
Restaurant was not completely full for Mothers Day. The service was so incredibly slow. Wait staff did not make recommendations or suggestions of any of the items on the menu. Still dont even know if there is a dessert menu. I was very disappointed that after almost 2 hours we got through appetizers . Literally took about 45 min to get chips on the table which are not complimentary. Gratuity was added automatically to the bill for a party of two. 2 Premium margaritas, 3 appetizers and an order of chips and dips with tip was $100.00. The food wasn't bad but I would say it was over priced.

Celebrated 2021 Mother's Day here. Food was delicious and the ambiance was nice. Staff was limited as expected but they still managed to provide good service even though food took a while to come out. Overall, we had a good time.
Great food and ambiance.
Waiter wasn't around much to take drink orders, food orders.
Food came out at different times. Food was wrong had to cook right item ordered. One meal was cold and burnt and had to make a new meal.
Food was not flavorful but the service was excellent.
I celebrated 5 de Mayo at Chico and let me tell you that the food was great, the vibe as well! I felt I was literally in Tulum with the groovy music. I loved my experience and the drinks where exceptional.
Terrible service, terrible food, and drinks are ok. Save your money and your time and do not go. Went for a birthday party, 12 ppl. EVERYONE at the table left unhappy.
The vibe is great for brunch or celebrating birthdays. The Food/Drinks were amazing and the pricing was fair for the place. My only complaint was the service was a little slow, especially for my group who beat the crowd, everything took long.
Drinks, service and ambience were below expectations. If you want to have a conversation, this is not the place. The music was extremely loud inside of the restaurant. The night we visited they mentioned they were short staffed. Not planning on returning.
When I made the reservation for this, I was never asked if we could sit outside or inside. Given that we were a big group, they could not sit us outside even though I had a reservation. Once we were directed to our table, they sat us in the smallest table that could only fit 4 people yet we were 6. We had to complain and speak with the manager several times and until they moved us. Once they moved us, we were all crammed in a small table next to the restroom. The service was very slow. Mistakes in our drinks and food. Very disappointed given that we have come here a few times and wanted to introduce the place to friends. The best experience.
Service wasn’t bad. As soon as we arrived we were seated. Server was more or less attentive and knowledgeable. It seemed like the kitchen/bar were very slow or inexperienced because it didn’t seem too busy for a Saturday night. The appetizers were simple but good (guacamole, salsa and hummus) but the actual meal was bland. The presentation was beautiful my “carne asada” came in a dome filled with smoke. It looked gorgeous. Unfortunately flavorless and that smoke some did not to anything for the steak. It was also a bit over cooked. And we never received the sides. Even though the waitress was told and made a point to stop by the table to let us know our sides were coming right out. All in all the place is cute nice vibe to maybe stop for drinks. Service is slow though so come with time. And eat elsewhere because the food though not expensive definitely not satisfying.
Estuvo rico para ser almuerzo mucho volumen
Such an improvement from the previous restaurant in this space! Authentic and tasty Mexican food, wonderful and friendly service, great cocktails and very energetic vibe with the music and lighting. Finally an upscale Mexican place with real Mexican food in Doral!
Very good service in an amazing location!!!
Sangria was delicious. Food was great. Ambiance and space was amazing.
The salsa was more like paste than salsa, the elote was the only good thing we got
Great deal on the margaritas, great guac. Stick to appetizers, food wasn't great.
Food, atmosphere was great. Server was excellent!
Great place to have good mexican food and drinks.
Terrible service, it’s like they’ve never waited on tables before and everything took forever to come out. Also, even though we had an early reservation, they were out of everything! How can a Mexican restaurant be out of rice and enchiladas at 7pm?? Margaritas were watery and bland which was really disappointing. Even the guacamole was tasteless. My dinner option was good, but very small for price.
Had a great time celebrating a birthday. Bella our server was great.
Excelente comida , ubicación , ambiente y la mejor atención de nuestra mesera claudia muy amable servicial muchas gracias !!!
I went because it was a new place and I live near by. The service was ok, but the food came cold and very spicy. The menu did not have a sign that was spicy and I couldn’t finish it
Our party of 10 had to leave and go to the restaurant next door because service was very slow. It was an hour before we were able to get our drinks and place an order for appetizers. The beers came out hot and the appetizers were brought without serving plates or utensils. The venue is very nice but all of their servers appear to be running around without assigned tables which causes confusion and resulted in bad service.
The music is so nice and enjoy the complete playlist was great but too loud you can’t speak at the table.
Eat before you go!
But the atmosphere is overall fun and hot.
Staff is polite and understanding.
I went to brunch there & it was great! The server was fun & energetic! He knew exactly how to meet my energy. I got a little too drunk & they even offered to call me an uber. I had a great time. They even charged my phone for me because my phone died. The music was great, service wand food was outstanding! Couldn’t ask for a better brunch. i would definitely go back!
Arrived 10 min prior to reservation on a Saturday evening. We were seated at in ther lounge area and our server promptly came over to take our drink order. After waiting over 40
Minutes for him to return we asked the hostess if we could be moved to an area with a more attentive server. She said she could not accommodate our request. Drinks came out 5 minutes later and we placed our order. Another 40 minutes (which had it not been near 10pm at this point with nearly half the tables empty it would have been understandable- but at least come
Back and check on the table). Ordered a second round of drinks which took about 20
Minutes to arrive. Ordered dessert and the cold brew horchata which came
Out fast but was missing the cold brew. After we could
Locate the server the correct drinks came
Out about 10 Minutes later.
We did see a manager roaming around- he stopped by a few sporadic tables but we tried to flag him down when he passed by unsuccessfully.
While we were initially hesitant about the food bc the table next to us sent almost all entrees back - all of the food and drinks were absolutely wonderful once we finally received them.
So overall the food is amazing. Drinks were really good. Ambiance is on point and trendy. Just don’t go here if you expect anything other than subpar service that takes an excruciating time attending to you.
The place is beautiful yet The service was bad... the girl even though was super nice, was very forgetful and got too close and removed the masks to talk.
The music was goo but super LOUD. So much that we needed to yell at each other. If one is looking for a dancing place maybe this is a nice place to place to go. Lastly the food was just ok... meh...!
The decor was great, the DJ was on point, the waitstaff did a great job. The guacamole was exceptional, the ceviche was fresh. The margarita was a bit weak for my taste. My enchiladas unfortunately we’re cold in the center, not cool COLD. I had it as I don’t send food back. The waitstaff and management were very apologetic and offered replacements which I turned down. The meal was taken off the bill. I think Chico Malo just needs to find their footing in Mexican fare.
I asked for Glenlevit 12, didn’t have. They are commended Glenfiddish. Came back 3 minutes later and said they had ran out, but would serve Macallan 12 for the same price. Price? $20 each!!!! Rip-off !!!!! Other than that, great overall, yet not worth the rip-off...
Service could have been better, considering that we were the only guests in the restaurant. High bar stools for the high cocktail seats were uncomfortable plastic bands that felt like I was falling through the seat
Went on a Saturday night, had such a fun time, we came back for Sunday brunch the next day! Food was amazing, bold flavors and fresh ingredients. Highly recommend the chili Colorado, sooooo good. Margaritas were on point! Unlimited during brunch.
Service and food were below average.
The place is beautiful and the crowd was good. The service was good the server was very attentive. The only problem was the food it was ok and for some reason our plate came out very late so late that almost everyone at the table was done with their food. The taste was ok I was expecting more for the price. I will try it out one more time and see if the food improves.
In love 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️😘
We sat outside in one of the cabanas because it wasn't too busy! The manager Daniel was awesome. The elote was probably my favorite thing, plus the chili Colorado and chicken quesadilla were delicious as well.
Brand new restaurant at CityPlace Doral, saw it on instagram and wanted to give it a try. All the tortillas are made in house. Everything ordered was delicious, loved the cocktails. Service was very attentive. Will make this one of my go to spots.
Came to brunch, was poppin off. Great DJ, can't beat the bottomless. Food was paced nicely considering we spent the whole afternoon there. Definitely need a reservation, had a line and were checking IDs. Looks like they let families inside and 21+ outside.
