The waitress was unhappy and not friendly. The food had no flavor. Guacamole didn't even have salt and pepper in it. The ambience is good.
The evening was great! The customer service provided by Polanco is always above and beyond.
I am never disappointed by their delicious food, and welcoming staff.
Our server, Chelsey, did a wonderful job caring for my friends and I!
She was very attentive and engaging with us.
Will definitely be back for another great meal at this restaurant.
Had a great time dining on the patio even with the rain. Our server was attentive and the food was delicious.
Polanco is a beautiful restaurant with phenomenal service. The food is amazing and ambiance vibrant and welcoming.
It was good definitely returning
Thank you for the five stars.
Food was good like any other Tex-mex place, but nothing memorable. Overall service was fast but probably because there weren’t many diners. Server kept forgetting my drink order. Asked me twice to repeat my drink and then came back a third time to tell me they ran out of ingredients but did not offer any substitutions, so I just stuck with water. He was not attentive at all.
The best part was Olivia our server who took great care and recommended food to us.
Service was great, we received our food right away. Sat by the fireplace so we were warm the whole evening. It was very cozy and the food was amazing
Food and Service were great
Thank you for the rating and support.
A must if you're going to an event at Golden one.
Thank you for the kind words and support.
Amazing customer service. Food was great. Had the Birria Tacos, really good. Great atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Everything is overly priced. The food has no taste. It was so plain. I ordered avocado tacos and the batter was not mixed well. The food was so bland.
I love this place best in the business from the staff, environment, and MOST DEFINITELY the food! Some of the best cocktails in the city as well! I’ll continue to come here for lunch and dinner bringing people with me as well!! It’s a vibe here and I’m here for it !!
Or Waitress was amazing. The food was over priced for the quality. Ended up with more fat than meet for my carnitas. Won’t be ordering again. Took 20 minutes to be checked in. Stuck waiting in line even with a reservation. The hostess was very polite just swamped. Love the music. Not a big fan of our table. We were in the doorway to the patio. Way too much traffic around us
Place is good for drinks but food is very bland. Chips and salsa was good but guacamole had so much lemon it was not edible. Food is overpriced
Harvey, thank you for your support and honesty. We always appreciate feedback on how to better our customers experience.
The guacamole is the largest portion I’ve ever been served . We are a family Of 5 and could not finish it . Guac was good. Chips and salsa were good. I had a Paloma to drink it was very good but strong. I had the fish tacos they were tasty. 2 of my daughters had the quesadillas and they loved them. Overall good spot !Service was a little slow, but it’s expected with restaurants being understaffed . I would dine again
Thank you so much for this kind review. We are so glad you enjoyed your meal and look forward to seeing you again soon.
First time eating here, located right in DOCO. Food was amazing and service was great also. I recommend the Mole or Fish Tacos, but will be back for sure.
Late night meal at Polanco was delicious. We ordered the fish tacos. So yummy!
We are thrilled for the five stars and appreciate your feedback. We look forward to serving you again soon.
Seemed short staffed as we didn’t get the great service we usually get. But we love this place.
Hi Johnny, I am sorry to hear you did not receive the service you have in the past. We take note of this and look forward to seeing you soon.
Overall an amazing experience all around. Server was really kind and patient with us. Thank you!
Thank you for dinning with us. Hope to see you again soon.
Great ambiance. Food was delicious, waiter was excellent.
They had live music and singing, which was great.
Would definitely go back again
Teresa, we are so glad you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again soon. Have a great rest of your day.
The overall experience of the place was great. The décor is well put together. The only thing I might suggest is the restrooms to be cleaned and maintained but besides that the food was good.
Hi there, thank you for the feedback and honesty we appreciate the support and hope to see you soon.
Everything was amazing …the food, service and drinks were incredible!
Deee, we are so glad you enjoyed your visit and appreciate the kind words and support. We hope to see you again soon.
Amazing food and drinks!
Thank you for the feedback and support. Hope to see you again soon.
Good food but nothing u can't find at another Mexican restaurant for less costly and just as good. It is way too expensive for Mexican food. But try it out for yourself.
Thank you for the support, we appreciate the feedback and review. We are glad you enjoyed your meal and hope to see you again soon.
The place is very nicely located with great views of downtown. Some of the dishes are a creative fusion but the taste is not exceptional. we ordered queso fundido, birria noodles and pollo pibil tacos. None of them were impressive but the were not bad either. The pollo pibil was actually really good. the chips that came with the queso fundido were great. The selection of cocktails is ok most important, all is sort of reasonably priced. Service was just fine but not great, I gather it was a busy day with bad air quality. The drinks took roughly 20 min to arrive appetizers maybe 30 and food 40, something like that. I think this is a good place to go for drinks and have some appetizers. Kids are ok, and pet friendly too.
Hi there, thank you for the support and review. We appreciate your patience for your food and beverages and always do our best to provide speedy service for our guests. We look forward to seeing you again.
Food was amazing, service was great. Went on a Wednesday and it wasn’t to busy super easy in and out.
Amanda, thank you for the great review. We are so glad you enjoyed your meal.
We love Polanco Cantina!
It’s a fun atmosphere with super tasty food and friendly staff.
The meat in the tacos is so tender and the mole sauce is a perfect Baja crispy of chocolate and slice. And the drinks are always on par.
Thank you so much for this great review. We are so glad you enjoyed your visit we hope to see you again soon. We appreciate the support.
Our waitress was awesome ! And the vibes were super cool! Delicious food and drinks !
Hi Gabriela thanks for the great service shoutout. We hope to see you again soon.
Best Mexican food I have ever had! Hands down best staff.
Hi Rachel, appreciate the five stars and kind words. We hope we are able to serve you again soon.
Drinks were so good and tasty but food was lacking flavor and spice. The service was amazing and the restaurant was beautiful. Still recommend it.
HI Jane, thank you for the review and feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your visit and we cant wait to see you again soon.
The patio at Polanco is a great option for lunch or dinner. You can people watch at DOCO while enjoying the fresh air and good food.
Hi Amy, thank you for the great review. We appreciate your support and hope to serve you again soon.
Great service and HH menu! New favorite spot for sure.
Hi Neko, thank you for the great review. We hope to see you soon.
Zoe went the extra mile to help with my gluten allergy. Thank you so much. We will come back, with friends and family.
Hi Kim, I am so glad our staff was able to provide an extra great experience for you. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. A little pricey.
Hi Michael, we appreciate the support and look forward to seeing you again soon.
Drinks were good. Service was friendly as well. I wish chips and salsa were free as in most Mexican restaurants. Food was good but a little fancy overall and not as many options as I expected. Chicken enchiladas were very tasty!
Hi there, thank you for your feedback and review. We are so glad you enjoyed your drinks, service and enchiladas. We hope to see you again soon.
The food was average and overpriced - most likely because of the location. I was hoping for much better.
Good and service was great! Great location too!!
Hi There, thank you for the review. Hope we get to serve you again soon.
My boyfriend and I love Polanco! We came here for his birthday this weekend. This is our favorite date night restaurant for both dinner and drinks!
Hi there, thank you so much for the kind review. We are so glad you had a great time and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
