    Went for the first time based on good things we had heard. Food and service were good. BYOB so we brought some tequila to add to their margaritas. Desserts were great. We will be back.

    This was our first time at this restaurant and we were delightfully surprised how good it was. The food was some of the best we’ve ever had. The people who work there are friendly, hard working and a pleasure to interact with. We will definitely go again and likely again.

    First timers. This restaurant is a hidden gem in Medford. The service was excellent, the server was friendly, and the appetizers and entrees were very delicious. I felt like I was eating at a small cafe in the Yucatan. The music and atmosphere were authentic. My wife and I will bring our friends next time. We even met the owner who was quite personable.

    Wow, I live less than 15 minutes away and have passed this place many times, but never went in. So glad I met a friend for lunch and then went back with other friends for dinner the following week. Authentic, fresh, modern Mexican food. It's a byob is a huge plus for those who like our wine. The service was great, professional and very pleasant. We sat outside on the pretty, flower festooned patio because the weather was perfect that night. My husband got a shrimp and chicken special and my friend's husband had the salmon special. Both devoured their meals. My GF and I opted for the chicken fajitas—I know, pretty basic choice but it was the abundance of vegetables that sold us both. I love that they have a lot of GF dishes, using corn iso flour tortillas. We were all very happy with our choices and can't wait to go back!

    Our dinner was excellent. Started with cheese empanadas, great pastry and lots of cheese filling. I had enchiladas, one of each type, for my entree. They were very flavorful, meat cooked nicely. My husband had the cochinita pibil, which he really enjoyed. It was a large portion of meat so he took some home. Also ordered margaritas and mixed in the tequila we brought. Service was excellent throughout the meal!

    A pleasant experience. It was not crowded but the food was somewhat slow in coming out. Not sure why they only offer burritos for lunch and not dinner. Excellent value and portion size. Both dishes, taco dish and fajitas were very good. Did not offer any cheese or lettuce with fajitas but an abundance of peppers, squash. Nicely decorated low noise level due to the small amount of diners in the restaurant. BYOB.

    We had a reservation at lunchtime on Cinco de Mayo. Expected it to be very crowded but it wasn't at all. The service was terribly slow and frankly just not great (didn't offer extra water, never brought glasses when our full party arrived). There were many menu modifications that we weren't told about until after we ordered (no soups or salad available, only serving dinner menu not lunch).... I would expect these to be posted at the hostess stand or the server to announce when we were seated. When we finished our meal, we found out their credit card machine was down. On Cinco de Mayo?! Poor planning and execution. The food is terrific, but I'm not sure it's worth such sloppy service.

    We had a party of four and all agreed that this was maybe the best meal we've ever experienced at Cielito -- and there have been MANY! The place was packed and yet the kitchen delivered in a timely and impressive fashion. Most of the daily specials were sampled and each delivered great flavor and were beautifully plated, especially the shrimp in mango sauce. The service was also spot-on -- again, despite every table being taken. Good show!

    The pacing is a big problem here -- it might not be the server but rather the kitchen. Either way, at every step everything took too much time -- both the appetizer and the main course were served far too late

    Disappointed with the chicken enchiladas we both ordered. Boiled chicken wrapped in tortillas with sauce over top. Not also very hot (temperature wise). Nacho starter was ok. Service slow but they were full. Small and pretty cantina atmosphere.

    Cielito Lindo is one of the best local Mexican restaurants. Food is great. In particular, love the mole sauce and the veggie nachos. Its BYOB, but they do offer a pitcher of margarita mix that you can bring tequila for.
