My wife and I have eaten here and have always enjoyed our meals. The ambiance under the Pergola is terrific. Makes you feel like you are at a vacation resort.

Everything was absolutely delicious! Exceptional/outstanding service!
We had the paella, empanadas, stuffed plantain and drink was mango madness - I’m still drooling thinking about everything. Definitely recommend and will definitely be coming back!

ALWAYA a pleasant dining experience. Food quality, value and taste are always pleasantly consistent. The prices are reasonable and dining under the Pagoda in the back is lovely.

Food was excellent, outdoor dining was great! Thankfully it was a beautiful night because it took a very long time to receive our food. In defense of the restaurant, they had a very large party so I do not think this is representative of the service in general. Would definitely go back!

Waitress Marta was a joy. Food tasted very good. Took a bit longer than expected given it was quite empty. Calamari was perfect crispy and tender at the same time. The pork chop and the risotto were both a tad over cooked even though the flavor was perfect. The pernil which was a special was a bit on the salty side. The Flan similarly was just a bit on the form side. Overall very good but has room left for improvement. The outdoor area in the back is very pleasant.

The food was good but the service was horrible. We waited 20 mins before anyone came over to ask us for drinks and then it took another 20 mins for the drinks to come. We waited over a 30 to have someone come take our order.
They are very under staffed but this was ridiculous.
Won’t be going back anytime soon

I wanted to like this place. It was busy and staff was friendly. Compared to other Mexican restaurants, it was disappointing. Greek salad was good, but strange in a Mexican restaurant. No chips offered or available to order. Steak fajitas very fatty/ greasy. Rice, but no beans or cheese with fajitas. Just nothing special. Seems to be popular though

Restaurant seemed busy upon arrival. Sat in the back patio. It didn’t look like they were tight on staff but it took them 20min. For my drink to come. Service was poor as our waiter blatantly ignored not just my table but others around it. Food was ok. Overcooked. Pretty sure I won’t be coming back unless those two cute little dogs are there!

DonJito remains a hidden gem in Mamaroneck BUT not for long. Their delicious food consistency, cocktails, ambiance and service are excellent.

If you haven’t visited you should.

The Seafood Paella was the best I ever had, and that includes all those great Mexican/Spanish restaurants in California. A great addition to Westchester's terrific culinary hits. The mixed cocktails are excellent. Try the Watermelon Sangria.

Having been there many times, this was the first time we were all disappointed. Normally the food is quite good. The steaks were overcooked when we asked them to be rare, there were also over salted and over seasoned and the other dishes ordered were dry. We had to ask for a side of salsa just to be able to eat the fajitas due to how dry they were .The chicken wing appetizers were also terribly overcooked and quite dry although the sauce is delicious. Although the side dishes were simple including rice and other simple items, they were barely warm and it seemed as if the dishes had been sitting under a warming lamp for much longer than it should have been before they were served. Normally these things don't bother me but after spending close to $250.00, including tip, I do expect the food to be served properly.

Bare bones Mexican. No chips, no salsa, small portions. My husband got chicken fajitas. Only side dish was a scoop of rice and three small tortillas. Sodas served in small little jars with a ton of ice. Walked out hungry and thirsty!

I requested a specific table during the reservation process, counter top, man sitting us feign to know where there were or even what I had requested. Bottom line they did not seem to even know that request was made. The entire use of Open-table at this restaurant is useless. Ended up sitting at bar where a customer gave arm massages to staff on bar top!!

Perfect covered outdoor space. Ladies night out to celebrate our bdays! So fun! Food and drinks were all great and special personal bday cakes for the table were the perfect touch. Will definitely be back!
