Mexican
Classic Mexican with an eclectic downtown St. John's feel. A high energy room with an overriding Dia de Muertos theme. Customer focussed staff and the largest tequila selection in Atlantic Canada with a large variety of original Margaritas. Moose Taquitos are a must!

The service was fantastic and the food was lovely. The only complaint that I had was the quality of the margaritas they were served. The first Margarita was really good and as the the night went on the glasses got smaller and had more ice than anything else. I swear that some glasses had about 3 sips and the rest was ice. This was a steep price for 11$ per cocktail. My tolerance for alcohol is little (literally 2 glasses of wine and I'm done) and I had 6 margaritas and felt the alcohol a bit but given that I had 6 cocktails we all commented that the margaritas were about 60% ice, 30% mix, 10% alcohol maybe. Our table spent about 800$ and we could have had a catered dinner at home with quality margaritas and spent much less. If this was just my opinion I probably wouldn't share this feedback but the 7 other people at our table agreed. I didn't want to say anything to our server because she was lovely and the service was unbeatable but I probably will choose to go elsewhere if I have dinner and cocktails with friends again. Not sure if I would recommend to a friend. For the food and service yes, for the drinks a hard no.

We were outside under the umbrellas and even though it poured rain we had the best time!! The food and drinks were amazing... it was our first time out with friends since the pandemic started. Highly recommend the nachos and mojitos!

We had a work lunch with 8 of us and the staff were awesome, even found a quiet spot for one of our Managers to take a call. Food was great, perfect afternoon.

we made a reservation for my sons birthday at 7:30pm. We arrived and were told that the wait for food was one hour and that at 8:30 minors were not allowed in (my son was turning 13) so we could not stay to eat. It would have been helpful if your website noted that minors were not allowed in after 8:30

- Horrible experience. We placed our order 15 mins after arriving. Our order consisted of "standard" items. After 45 mins of waiting, we were informed that it would be another 20 mins before we would recieve our meal. We asked to speak to the manager, she was sympathetic but could only say that they were very busy. We told the manager that we would no longer wait and that we would be leaving. The manager offered to provide us with a 50% discount if we stayed, we expressed the fact tat our night was ruined and that we were leaving. We requested our drink bill, the manager told us that they would be free of charge.

Myself and my friends really enjoyed the food, but honestly the service was much to be desired. Our drinks took over a half hour to make it to the table. We waited almost 2 hours to eat, and our appetizers and main courses were brought out at the same time. Such a shame, because the food was delicious. Going to be thinking twice before coming back

Food for most of us was excellent. One guest had special dietary requirements and server was very uninformed/unhelpful and unwilling to make modifications to exiting menu items (e.g. serve contents of a taco without the taco)

Great food, everything was fresh and delicious. Service was great. The noise level was a tad bit high inside, couldn't have a conversation without yelling. But overall great experience.

Cojones is a fun new place to hang out with friends and family. Delicious drinks!
The menu needs to be twinked with regards to the items they list as gluten free. A lot of them are not GF but can be altered so that anyone with an allergy can enjoy. For example they list one of their deserts as GF when in fact it has oreo cookies in it. Same goes for several apps and entrees. I'm sure they'll figure it out as time and demand continues.

I like the restaurant, the food and drinks are good, but this was my second time going, and my second time waiting an extra 15-20 minutes for my reserved table to be ready.. I understand the restaurant is popular, but it's not an excuse to not be more organized. also was not told the kitchen had closed because we hadn't seen our waitress for a while, and therefore couldn't order dessert.

I had a reservation, the food was good, but it took 1 1/2 for our meals. The appetizer came out with our entrees so we basically just drank (the very delicious) margaritas. So, you win some you lose some with this place.

We visited for my friend’s birthday a few weeks ago. The staff went above and beyond to make sure our day was the best it could be. Sharia (spelling probably incorrect) went above and beyond to make sure we were able to all sit together outside. Paige was so patient with us all and our very confusing bills. And Pablo made us all laugh with the birthday maraca. Best patio downtown by far! The wait for the food was filled with sunshine and delicious margaritas.

I absolutely love this restaurant. Service is always fantastic and the food is incredible. However, the new outdoor seating has completely changed the overall quality. The restaurant was so cold because they had the door left open. Service was extremely slow. We were told it was an hour wait for food. Took hour and half for food. Overall we were there over 2.5 hours. Won’t be returning until the outside seating is removed.

Really enjoyed our meal, cojones is consistently a great place and such a terrific vibe and ambiance. Our waiter (Didn’t get just name) was his first shift, but was super on the ball. Their classic margarita is fantastic!
