    Was super slow and seems really unorganized the table next to us seemed to be forgotten about and the over and hour wait for food seemed a bit much for chips and tacos!

    Our waitress was friendly and attentive, and was helpful with advice about food choices based on our likes. Our food was good - my friend loved the cod taco she had. The price was fair. We’d go back again.

    I was absolutely pleased with my entire experience at Cojones. Our waiter Cody was phenomenal and offered so many suggestions. Our meals were so quick and so enjoyable. You could tell that everything was fresh and made in house, something Cojones should be proud of! Only suggestion I have is to see a variety option in the choice of dips - maybe offer chips with guacamole, queso and salsa. Same with the tacos, try more than one at a time. I cannot wait to revisit again! So so happy I visited.

    Service was amazing! Best We’ve had in years. Our server was top notch! Food was fantastic. It was nice to go to a place where you get a WOW reaction. Could see the head chef from the table and he spoke to his kitchen staff with respect, beautiful to see. As this was our first time there we already have plans to come back again.

    I have to say I enjoyed Cojones in St Johns location and was so happy to see one open in Paradise where we live but the service we got yesterday evening was horrible. We had 3 people serving us which you would think was great but what we got was food that another table ordered and left because they were not happy with wait so myself and husband had our food before our children…then we had no napkins or cutlery to eat with and had to ask for it. My daughter asked 5 times for a soda and never got it first nor last then I asked for a sour cream and by the time they brought it my food was done so we just asked for bill to leave restaurant.

    Went here to celebrate my birthday with a few friends, got seated right away even though we showed up early. The hostess were friendly and kind and wished me a happy birthday. Our food and drinks were all fantastic and came out with perfect timing, the beef Dorado taco and the moose taquitos were excellent. The choice of free desert or martini is something more restaurants should be doing for birthdays! All this was made better by our super attentive server who's name I sadly can't remember, but she's went above and beyond. She was kind and very funny and really felt like part of the party, can't thank her enough for making the night even more special. Awesome food served but an amazing staff.

    While the food was quite tasteful, the portions were really small, and definitely not worth the price. However, despite the small portions, the staff were wonderful; couldn't have asked for better. There was an error in timing and our party received our entree mere minutes after we had gotten our appetizers. The staff were really apologetic and made an extra effort to stop by our table to ensure that everything was okay. We each had drinks ranging from sangria to a margarita to beer; and all were really well made to the point where we had a second round. The ambiance was okay, but nothing special, and in no way made me feel that I was dining in a Mexican cuisine restaurant. Would I go back? Probably, but it won't be anytime in the near future.
