Contemporary Latin
THE NINO VIEJO STORY OLD BOY. OLD SOUL YOUNG AT HEART.
Remix of a classic. Whatever you want to call it, we believe the old world methods of making food - making things by hand, from scratch, cooking meat low and slow, using real foods rather than processed - is the proper way. So we’ve perfected these traditional ideas and applied our unique, young spin into every one of our recipes- focusing on flavor pairings rather than the status quo- to bring you our own, signature experience we call “Nino viejo”.

    They are closed. Even though Open Table still let’s you make reservation and asks you to confirm it. Ridiculous in this day and age to have just turn off reservations while they are closed.

    When we arrived with friends from Las Vegas, a sign on the door stated that they were closed for renovations and remodeling….we had confirmed reservations through Open Table….very, very, disappointing. If we had been notified, we would have chosen another Mexican restaurant in SLC…poor customer service from Nino Viejo and Open Table

    I booked Nino Viejo online using Open Table. When I arrived with my party the restaurant was (and had been for a while) closed for construction. Getting into anywhere else at a last minute was impossible. Open Table is not real reliable.

    Initially we were excited to go to this restaurant but when we arrived there seemed to be a miscommunication in regards to who was our server. We didn’t get a server for about 20 or so minutes. The food came out quickly, but wished that the server paid a bit more attention to us. It seemed like there were plenty of servers but they played busy, tables were left uncleared for 20+ minutes after patrons left. The staff wasn’t too friendly, and noticed when a table next to ours asked for something bc their server was nowhere to be found, the server seemed bothered to assist. The decor was cute and on trend but just disappointed by the overall experience. Would not go back.

    This is one of our favorite go-to places for Mexican food. The service is great, and the menu has a very diverse selection, all of which is good, at least that which we have tried so far. My wife’s favorite is the Carne Asada fries and my favorite thus far is the tacos, Al Pastor.

    We were seated with a reservation. After 15 minutes of waiting at our table, we decided to leave. No drinks, chips, or any acknowledgment from the staff walking by us. This is the second time this has happened. This restaurant is either severely understaffed or poorly managed, or both.

    Atmosphere and service was great, and to be expected. Nice spot if you have kids—they can play in the amazing courtyard with a playset, and grassy area. The Jalapeño Margaritas were good. And the poblano/queso dip appetizer was ON POINT! However the breakfast burrito was okay…nothing special The chilaquiles was very sub-par. (No beans, no meat/chorizo-nothing, only one egg) no cilantro or queso fresco as garnish toppings. The tomatillo sauce was to tart and uninspired. They just gave you a mound of chips, slightly tossed in the sauce, and just melted the chihuahua cheese. At the same time im aware this is NOT a breakfast focused place, so the breakfast menu was small too. With that said, i still want to come back to try their lunch and dinners.

    The server was sweet as can be. The drinks were good. The queso was ok but unfortunately the main dishes were terrible. We ordered chicken enchiladas and flautas. The chicken was chewy and the flavor was less than mediocre on both. We will not be going back.

    This was our second time trying to dine here. First night we waited way past the time we were quoted and ended up eating somewhere else. We came back to try again and this time the place was pretty empty. However it still took a while to sit even with a reservation. Then it took forever to get service. Things we asked for never came. Most of the food was cold and not good. Whoever is running this place needs more help because the customer service and food is severely lacking.

    The waitress was so nice and helpful with suggestions. I definitely suggest getting “El Plato” it’s the perfecta ay to try all the tasty meats like the bomb Carne asada and chorizo as well as chicken and shrimp. It comes in a molcajete but it’s t molcajete and comes with rice, tortillas and beans. It’s definitely a shareable meal for 2. The drinks were so good as well. The mojitos or the Paloma’s with coconut were delicious!

    By far the worse Mexican (Latin) food I've ever eaten. Might be top 5 in the worse meals I've ever had. 2 bites and done with my Chicken Pollo that was covered in a horrible tasting sauce. The waitress laughed it off and the manager never showed. Paid for our drinks and left to eat somewhere else. I would recommend Taco Bell over this place any day of the week.

    Nino Viejo has been one of our favorite spots at Station Park. The food has typically been very flavorful. Unfortunately that wasn't the case on this visit. The chicken was very bland in the tacos and flautas, and there was too much avacado on the apple jicama tacos, that you couldn't taste the apple or the jicama. The margaritas were good though. The lack of staffing was definitely having an effect. Our server was very nice, but spread too thin with all the tables she had to cover. Wasn't a good visit this time, but we will be back.

    The food was good overall. I had the flautas which were strangely very tough and dry but everyone else loved their entrees. Cocktails were amazing! We sat at a very nice table with plenty of room all around us but some of the areas of the restaurant were very cramped and would have made me nervous in regards to very close proximity to others without masks. None of the staff were masked which was surprising to me. Also we got rushed to pay before being asked afterward if we wanted anything else and had 2 different servers who didn’t seem to be talking to each other. It felt like they wanted us to hurry up and leave.

    Service was great. Quick seating and attentive wait staff. Pretty good ambience. Tapas were good. Very disappointed in portions for the price. Kitchen was out of some items and didn’t communicate that to wait staff so a few orders came incomplete. They were super awesome to comp an appetizer to make up for it. Wish we would have known certain food was out before ordering. Our table tried five different types of tacos and all were pretty good. Shrimp enchiladas were disappointing as I had to search for shrimp in them rather than shrimp being the star of the dish. Overall food was good, but the value was poor for what it cost.

    My daughter and I had dinner while Birthday shopping. The food was delicious. I had the chicken tacos and she had the kids quesadilla. We also shared the steak fries. We were seated quickly and our food came out very fast. This was great for us because we were in a hurry. if you are wanting a more relaxed dinner you may want to let them know to space the food out a little more. Our server was busy but she checked in numerous times. Would definitely eat here again.

    The carne asada fries were good. Good value with lots of toppings. The asada tacos on the other hand, not much to them and fairly expensive since they don’t come with rice and beans. I got a coconut mojito that was great and an avocado Margarita that was pretty good but there were a few chunks of avocado I sucked up through the straw that weirded me out. The service was ok. We were seated and then not acknowledged for 10 min. After that throughout the time, multiple servers came to the table, all confused about whether we had ordered or received things. They just weren’t on the same page. It wasn’t bad but we probably won’t be back.

    The food was decent and margaritas were great! Their salsa is really good and complimentary. If you like casamigos tequila they have a dressing on the papaya salad that tastes similar to it. Just make sure you review your bill because we were overcharged by a lot, compared to the actual price of the items and had to get corrected.

    Service was terrible. Our waitress didn’t come to our table for almost 20 minutes after we were seated. Drinks came out after dinner. Waited another 30 minutes for food. Overpriced. Small portions and food was mediocre at best. We will never go back and will recommend to everyone not to go.

    The food was not impressive. Ordered the shrimp ceviche, shrimp tacos, chorizo tacos, and the birra tacos. The shrimp ceviche had a pretty decent flavor but very little shrimp. The birra tacos (pot roast) did not have much meat. Mainly a big piece of fat. It was also supposed to come with a chili broth for dipping the tacos. It was only the fat drippings. The chorizo taco was to come with spicy pickled onions and didn't which would of helped the dish immensely.

    The receptionist spaced out our reservation despite us standing there for 10 minutes waiting for our table. (she said it was being cleaned and then forgot to get us, until I asked, to be seated.) Our server was very nice and service was good. I thought the presentation could be better. The 2 taco serving seemed to get lost on the big plate. Not serving rice and beans as part of the meal, and being charged separately for them seems odd.
