Service was awful and ended up biting into a large chicken bone in my taco. Their resolution was removing $4 from the total bill. Will not return and do not recommend to anyone.

Great atmosphere and drinks. Food was mediocre and the server was hit and miss. Won’t rush back. Mercado is much better.

If you’re looking for a typical “taco Tuesday” environment, this is not your spot. I could appreciate the calm, laid back vibe, although it was a bit hard to see what we were eating in the dark. Our table was a tight squeeze with the next patron and we had this large concrete pillar on the side of us, mostly blocking our ability to interact with the wait staff.

The food was ok. The queso dip with beef was a nice appetizer. My steak quesadilla was a good size portion but the tortilla was a bit burnt. My husband ordered the crispy tacos, which only come in beef - you pay PER taco, which I thought was expensive, and you didn’t have the option to sub in another meat. Also, neither the quesadilla or tacos come with sides - no rice, no beans, no nothing.

The service was ok - we were never asked if we wanted anything other than water to drink. Once we requested a coke, we’d received (after waiting for a while) and it was off. We initially thought it was due to it being the ‘Mexican’ coke version, but when we had asked, that assumption was wrong. The server offered another, and it taste the exact same - off. You’d think after hearing a complaint on the coke, that the bartender would taste it before sending another back out. But did not. By this time, our Uber had arrived so we just left, paying for a drink we couldn’t enjoy.

No host at the stand for quite some time, an apathetic bartender, and REALLY loud (but good) hip hop music.
The vibe was ok. The food was good. Not really service focused. Decor is fantastic, but couldn’t elevate the slack, unprofessional “yeah, when I get to ya” attitude of the staff.

Food was good nothing to special. But the ambiance was outstanding, loved the vibe of the restaurant. Although, we had a bad waitress who took our order and never came back. She ended up having a someone else bring out our food. We were looking for her the entire time. I would go back again but the service would be my only hesitation.

Food was very mediocre for the price. I felt robbed. Good value for the beer but my combination plate was all rice and beans (which tasted straight from the can!). My carne asada taco and enchilada were tiiiiiiiiny and dry af. The little frozen microwaveable one from Trader Joe’s we’re better. They didn’t even have corona beer. All in all it was a very disappointing dining experience. I wish I went to tortilla republic instead. Also the music was extremely loud.

Such a cool, upscale vibe without being obnoxious or pretentious. The staff was so friendly and accommodating (I was there for business drinks and it was a little loud, so they sat me in the restaurant's most quiet area). The food & drinks were delicious (we tried several things) the lights were low and the music was great. A perfect place to kick off the weekend with friends or a date.

Whenever we go here, we always say, "Why don't we go here more often?" Yes, it can seem a bit scene-y, it's very dark and hip inside, but the service...it's just great. Everyone has always been super friendly to us, very attentive, and just...fun and nice. The food has always been outstanding--yes, it IS a bit pricey, $25 or so for a two taco platter is silly, and the house margarita, while really quite good, just feels small for $15. (Which, okay, maybe why we don't go here THAT often.)

Your mileage may very, but everything we've had here, from the tacos to the salads to the burrito has been really good. Great place for a date for sure, though the bar is mighty inviting for getting a drink or two.

What is up with the loud music? I never mind music but to the point that you can’t hear a thing of what the other people are saying is just too much. Bummer because the place is great.

Usually I have a better dining experience. Service was extremely slow and we were not greeted by server until someone from our table notified the hostess stan, 20+ minutes. Drinks and special requests had to be followed up with multiple times.

Terrible service waited forever for our food , came out at different times. For my birthday churros they just reheated old ones in bad oil. My tacos were salty basically Taco Bell would have better food. Wouldn’t recommend this place to a soul!

Awful table service! After being seated for a 9pm dinner reservation on Thursday night, the server (female, pretty, brown hair, tall-ish, olive skin) took 15 minutes to stop by our table for the first time and take our drink order. By 9:30pm she had not come back to even take our food order and our cocktails were definitely in need of a refill - it was a first date and I was ready to order big! I walked up to her as she was putting another table’s order in to the computer and requested the check without having yet ordered dinner. It is unacceptable to be so inattentive. No tip.

Love this place. I had my bday here with a party of 10. (Reserved ahead of time) and they set us up in the best spot on the patio ! Service was amazing and the food/drinks are always bomb. It’s dark lighting inside with loud music so be prepared for that vibe and you’ll have a great time with friends. Thanks petite taqueria for the best bday! Such a cool place

This is second time I’ve eaten here. First time I really enjoyed it. This time I felt the food went a downhill. Drinks ok. Service and atmosphere the best things about this place. I had stomach probs after as did my date and pretty sure it was the food.

The ambience is great but the service was awful. The waitress didn’t know what was on the menu, didn’t have any rose in the place, and the sweet corn tamale and desserts were just not good. The nachos and guacamole were the best things on the menu. The churros were cold and the chocolate tacos were stale. We were ignored by the staff and it took a long time to get the bill and then to pay the bill since the waitress took forever to come back to get the payment. Overall it was a mediocre experience.

1.) Server was unable to communicate to the table due to level of the music--we were unable to hear anyone except the person next to us (and we even asked them multiple times to turn it down)
2.) Claimed to serve the food "family style", which meant they brought out one entree, and we waited 20 minutes for 10 more
3.) Credit card machine was not working and staff was unable to figure out a solution to fix it, leaving us waiting for an additional 30 minutes as we were trying to get out of there
4.) When the food finally arrived, the chicken may as well had been rubber

Perhaps a bad night for the staff as I had heard great things, but this was a mess.
