Great food and spicy margarita. The service at the front was slow and drinks took a while to come out, but our server was very nice.
My parents loved their food (shrimp tacos and seafood enchiladas). I should have sent mine back. My chicken was charred black on the bottom and very rubbery. Sides were good and drinks great. Server was very nice.
Excellent service and food! I will be back with my husband for sure!
No one in our party had eaten here before. Everyone enjoyed the food and plans return visits.
Not as good as before. Chicken was dry and they seated us by the door on a cold night. Chips tasted rancid.
The Chilean sea bass is absolutely amazing. But food took entirely too long to come out, and our appetizer was served at the same time as the entree.
We were very underwhelmed by our experience. There was no hostess when we came in, and we waited for more than 15 minutes for someone to ask if we had a reservation. We were sat in an area where we had hardly any room to comfortably sit due to a very large party that probably needed an area that had more space for them to sit. Then we waited another 20 minutes for someone to take our drink order. The food we ordered came out incorrectly; the steak was severely under cooked; and it took them more than 30 minutes to bring out the correct food. We were excited to try this restaurant, and the server was extremely apologetic; however, we left feeling disappointed with our experience and aren't sure if we would return.
Had to chase down the waiter to take our order. Received our food more than an hour after we ordered. Manager explained the delays were due to several large groups attending at the same time. I am guessing these groups booked ahead (like we did for our group of 8), so it shouldn't have been a surprise to the staff they were going to be busy on a Tuesday night. Manager bought a round of drinks and apps to make up for the delay so that was nice.
I ordered the Sea Bass which was really good with lots of flavor in the sauces. Most of the rest of our party had tacos of some sort which looked good and everyone seemed to like them.
If I am on the Plaza and wanting Mexican food, I would probably stick with Chuy's. Not as upscale as Zocalo but always prompt service even when they are busy.
Great food and service. Enjoyable dinner.
I love the chips and salsa!!
Favorite KC Mexican spot.
Great service and food was tasty and a good value. I get tired of chain Mexican food because it all tastes like it’s coming out of a can but definitely this food was a cut way above that
Our server was the best! It was our first visit and he had lots of recommendations and super patient.
The food was wonderful and the chips to die for. We ate 2 full baskets and started on a 3rd!! Our waiter was attentive, but not overbearing. The price was reasonable as well.
Local gem. Food exceptional. Chilaquilas are out of this world. Outstanding Fajitas. Perfectly crafted guacamole. Generous, tequila list: mezcal too.
Served by Aron, extremely kind, thoughtful.
Great food and service
It was my wife’s birthday
We went on Christmas Day eve, they may have been short staffed, the kitchen was backed up so everything was slow. But we enjoyed what we had - different variations of tacos. And the bar menu had some really interesting cocktails, I tried the Mexican Mule and it was fantastic.
Poor service. Food over cooked.
Very enjoyable and excellent food. Loved the quest and the pork belly chimi.
My husband and I live half a block from Zocalo and were pleased to make an OpenTable reservation for Christmas . As we were walking home a man lowered his car window and called to us: "Merry Christmas. We see you are carrying restaurant boxes. We are looking for a restaurant that is open on Christmas." My husband pointed to Zocalo and said we had just come from your restaurant.
Due to odd circumstances, our family celebrated Christmas and a birthday at Zocalo. We have several picky eaters in this group and a wide range of ages. Every single person was happy with their meal and the service was really great. We will be back! Thank you!
We had fantastic server. I think his name was Aaron or Erin. Food was great and ambiance was perfect. Took family for dinner. Highly recommend.
The food was great! No wait due to reservations on Open Table. Great wait staff who were very attentive
VERY spicy food but delicious. Great service
I was very happy with the cuisine. Not just Tex Mex, but a wide variety with great taste! I will definitely be returning.
The roof was being worked on so it was noisy and smelled like tar—— food was fantastic! A little pricey but excellent.
Terrible experience and service. We were told the dishwasher was backed up so we couldn’t all have plates for the shared appetizers. Food was very very salty, albeit relatively tasty when it did arrive. Service more than anything let the whole place down. Would NEVER go back
Our meal was just ok. The guacamole was great, our main courses (poblano chicken and mushroom fajitas) were average at best. Server was kinda all over the place.
A group of us went for happy hour after work and everything was wonderful! The staff was attentive and friendly. We will definitely be returning. I highly recommend the mini carnitas tacos.
One of my favorite places to eat in the Plaza. We always start with the fundido, which is a cheesy dip with chips and tortillas. I had the shrimp tacos and my husband had the seafood enchiladas which we sort of shared. Both we thought our entrees were delicious. I love this place because it has a fun bar area, great food, tasty drinks and is a good value. We had excellent service too!
On of the best places on the plaza! We love the happy hour menu and brunch menu.
We really enjoyed the atmosphere. The decor is very intimate and private. So no matter where you are seated you feel that you are the only ones there. It is very easy to have a conversation and interact with your party. The food was good. The appetizer fundido was tasty and enough to share. The dinner portions were huge. The chimichanga was a bit over fried but tasty. Our waiter Aron was very attentive and engaging.
Went on a Saturday evening after making reservations online. Food was incredibly bland and not that great, other than then rice and black beans and they were fairly spicy. I ordered chicken fajitas, husband had the seafood enchiladas. A dinner plate was not brought out with my fajitas and waitress finally noticed my struggling and brought one over. Waitress seemed to disappear - waited about 20 minutes after we finished eating then we asked another server for our check. She cleared our dishes from the table and the check was brought out by a manager. Our server came by after we had paid to check on us and was surprised to see we had our check. We will not find a reason to return. There are too many options on the Plaza that have better food and service.
Service was a little slow; although, it was a Friday evening.
My server Aaron was so amazing the food was soooo amazing I can’t wait to return for brunch this weekend !!!
Slow service...food was just OK...nothing to brag about. Wouldn't go back.
Delicious food, good skinny margaritas (next time I'll be more adventurous), and set up well for quiet early dining with happy hour visible but not intrusive. We will return.
Fabulous happy hour! Delicious menu options! Especially loved the guacamole and street tacos!
Food was good, not great. The shrimp fajitas while very good, were burnt. The service was lacking. Just guessing that maybe our server was new but not that attentive and the restaurant was not super busy.
