Food was amazing, I absolutely loved the carne asada and green chili, but my favorite was the blue crab tostada. The crab was so sweet and the sauce on it was delicious. I also got the El Jefe margarita and smokiness was fantastic. Only downside was that the music was extremely loud for being dinner time, we had to almost yell to have a conversation.
The food was delicious, music was great and service was excellent. We will definitely be returning.
Service was amazing. Food was delicious.
Awesome dinner with friends. Great food, drinks, and ambiance. Sophisticated, take in Mexican cuisine. Highly recommend.
Great drink and great happy hour!
Food was cold and $75 for a quesadilla and 5 pieces of shrimp will never go again very disappointed such a good vibe to
Thank you for coming in, I am sorry to hear about your experience! If you were to order a Quesadilla with Carne Asada (the most expensive option) and the Shrimp Diablo, with tax that would have been $43.44. Sounds like there might have been something wrong with your bill!! We can get that fixed immediately. Going to send you a private note to learn more.
Saturday Night - slow service - over 2 hour experience. Food was a disappointment for what we ordered.
We were put at a spot that had a drip problem at one of the seats. Had to adjust the table so that it wasn't dripping on us.
Be careful ordering the bottomless. The last 2 times it took FOREVER to get our next drink. Other than that soooo good!
Not good at all
Love the vibe, food was great, and service was amazing. Churro waffle is a must!
Great food, great space. Waiter was super friendly but it did take awhile to get our entrees and tab out. Not a big deal though. Would definitely recommend and come back!
I felt like I was at a night club, it was so extremely loud. We even sat in the back, but they had the volume to everything turned up so loud. The server was great, our food came out pretty quickly, but the food was not good at all. Super disappointing and not the place to visit if you’re looking for a nice sit down restaurant.
Thank you for visiting. Saturday night was a special event we held in celebration of the Suns Game 5 appearance in the NBA Finals and not a representation of a regular Chico Malo dining experience. I have sent you a private note to learn more about the specifics of your visit.
Unfortunately was not that great! I made a reservation days before and requested to be sited in the TV area and when I get in there they didn’t have the table as I requested. I noticed empty tables in the tv area and I asked to be sited in there but they keep saying that it was reserved but by the time I left the restaurant, the tables were still empty. The noise was super loud and there was people that didn’t have tables standing up everywhere, making the uncomfortable busy.
We apologize for being unable to accommodate your seating request. Please respond with a private note and the name on the reservation so we can look into the details of what happened. Saturday was a special event in celebration of the Suns Game 5 appearance in the NBA Finals and not a usual Chico Malo dining vibe and experience. We hope to see you in the future.
We love this place. They are great with food allergies also
Great food and great service from Justin. The ceviche and duck confite tamale were terrific.
Delicious drinks and food!! A little but pricey for my taste but overall great.
Even though I indicted we were celebrating my husbands birthday, the experience felt anything but special or celebratory. Arrived a bit early for our reservation, restaurant was not busy yet, but hostess sat us right next to a couple with a baby while basically the entire restaurant was empty. We asked to be re-seated, as we had a date night for just the two of us without kids for dinner. Restaurant filled with baseball fans in t shirts, jean shorts and gym shoes. Not even the least bit upscale dining or special occasion dining that we expected. Service was okay, food was pretty good, but would not visit anytime soon.
Thank you for the feedback. Please check your private messages as I have sent you a note.
Service was very slow, food was meh the tortillas are not very good.
We made this reservation in order to get reserved seating at our show at stand-up live. Our overall experience with each venue was pretty poor. Drink wait times were ridiculous and food is just ok and definitely over priced. Our server was sweet and did her best with what she was given. We probably will not be back
Visited for the first time for a girls night out and while the food was very good, and would come back for the entrees alone, the appetizers (elote, hummus, and guacamole were all very bland) and the service left much to be desired. We had to flag our waitress down on multiple occasions, as she would disappear for extended lengths of time. I noticed the other tables in our section having to do the same thing. Not sure what the issue was, but just seemed odd that I had to get up and go find her in order to order and to request our check.
Delicious food and beverages, can’t wait to go back!
Perfect for fancy fun - whether you want a nice dinner, or a spot for apps and drinks before a game.
Hair in food sadly. Service extremely slow. Waited 45 min for drinks
Thank you for coming in! After looking at the plate, our chef was able to decisively determine the foreign object was a fiber from the micro cilantro we garnish the guacamole with and not a hair. We offered a replacement that was declined, then comped the item. I was also able to determine who the server was on your table and will be sitting with him to see what caused the slow service and long drink ticket times. We take pride in quick service before Suns games. We hope to see you again!
Everything was fantastic. Great bar selection, great service and the blue crab tostadas are amazing.
Stopped in Phoenix on road trip and was blown away by this place. Their homemade blue corn tortillas are some of the best I’ve ever had.
The food was amazing and the service top notch. We were the last table of the evening and felt like we were the first!
Everything was amazing! We loved the food, drinks, and the overall vibe. Our server was amazing, giving us great drink recommendations. Will definitely be back next time we’re in Phoenix. Thanks for the perfect dinner.
Of our steak was inedible
Great experience! Love the HH Margaritas & the Scallops were fantastic!
Very loud like a club, but great service and atmosphere
Great food & service. Pork verde and Chimi were both excellent. Only complaint is they had the music up a little loud. Would be nice to hear each other while we enjoy dinner.
We had a wonderful time, and although it was our first time, we didn’t know what to expect; we couldn’t of been happier to try it out. One must get the churro waffle, or else you’re not living a good life until you try it!
Food is okay. Ambiance is more party scene. Drinks are very good.
Great food. Newt place. Could use a little more personalized service.
My wife has celiac and our waitress was so helpful in giving her recommendations as well as providing fun and fast service. The Cauliflower Steak was so delicious and came with a great presentation. The bartender made a prickly pear martini on request that was awesome! Such a great vibe!! We’ll be back for sure and will highly recommend!!
Stopped in for drinks and appetizers before a Suns game. Upscale, high energy environment. The ceviche appetizer was very fresh and tasty, with the staff providing tableside prep and mixing service. The blue crab tostadas appetizer was also fresh with excellent flavor. Their house margarita was a pleasant surprise, with a charred lime wedge that provided a wonderful smoky aroma and flavor. The staff was friendly and attentive. Not an inexpensive choice, but to be expected in a downtown venue of this quality. Will definitely return.
Great dinner before a terrible gAme.
Great place to eat. The food atmosphere and service were amazing I’ll definitely be coming back!
Food was delicious! Service excellent. Music a little to loud to have conversation at table, without shouting.
