Went to Zócalo for a pre-Valentine’s Day weekend date. The weather was iffy but there was still an almost full dining area. Our waiter was spectacular. There was a small issue with the appetizer. He informed us and offered us several options. We opted to have the app with our entrees and when the check came it had been taken off. The food and drinks choices have some interesting ingredients and everything we ordered had a great blend of familiar and unexpected flavors. A very enjoyable dinner

Food was good but tasted like it had been sitting in the kitchen. It came out only warm. Service was poor. Never got a refill for ice tea or water even after asking. We were seated but had to ask for a server.

The food is creative & delicious! It looks beautiful but tastes even better. The queso is amazing - so thick & rich. And the prices great, especially for The Plaza.

There was no record of our reservation, even though I got a confirmation, but they found us a table quickly.

My husband and I thought we'd give this place a try for date night. This was our first visit and we sat at the bar. The service started out good then decreased throughout our 1.5 hour stay. we had to ask 2 and 3 times for the same drink. We ordered dessert, waited about 20 minutes for it, finally gave up and asked for the check then it finally came out. The bread pudding was good. The fish I ordered was over cooked. My husband had the taco sampler which was pretty good. The food was just okay, poor service. There are much better restaurants in KC.

The dining experience was a positive one. We went for restaurant week and the only down side was they were out of tamales.

Dining at Zocalo was a delightful experience for my husband, our niece, and me!

I found the restaurant listed on the Restaurant Week website. We were impressed with the setting, food, and service. We look forward to returning to dine here again soon.

Thank you!

Food was not hot when brought out to table. Felt like much of it was made in bulk batches and maybe microwaved. Only the filet was good. High amt's butter/salt with moderate flavour. Nothing special about the food.

It was restaurant week and the service was excellent, but my entrée of fish, grits and mixed veggies was overloaded with garlic. I brought most of it home and reheated with lemon which improved it. The portions menu had many choices of Mexican food that looked interesting - not the typical rice and beans. I liked the ambience and location on the plaza.

Food was cold, flavorless Waiter inexperienced. Nothing about the meal made you want to come back or recommend it. It feels like they’re on the way out and no longer trying—or perhaps they never did.

It was Christmas Eve. The server did not check on us at all we had to be looking for him. Our food took forever and it ended up being average.

Have been here for Margaritas in the past however this was the first time eating here and the food and service did not disappoint. The fajitas were awesome and the salsa trio was amazing. I can say without hesitation that all three salsas are great. And the margaritas are really good as well.
