It was a grad lunch for my daughter. Pouring rain outside but quick efficient service & smiles inside! Scott assisted our server and everything was great! Food so, so good! We did all appetizers but were stuffed when we left! Personal fave was the empanadas & ceviche!
The house pitcher of margaritas were tasty and a good value based on the single margarita price. Single had more ice than cocktail and not worth the price (in my opinion). The taco cozuelo(?) was plenty of food for two and very good.
This was my fifteenth visit to Zocalo and my husband's third. We live in SF. We love the food and the craziness and all the celebrations on going all around us. It was a big graduation weekend in Sacramento, and it was fun to see all the families and babies. I tried a summer champagne cocktail that I believe might be my go-to summer drink. I had never tried the (new) Mexican salad. Great portion, healthy salad. My husband had a pulled pork dish and I think he would like to bribe a cook for the sauce recipe.
Our only complaint was that we worried you were understaffed that Saturday lunchtime. It took about 10 minutes for us to get back our "to-go" box. But we really commend all the staff and our wonderful server for working with so much grace under pressure.
We will be back. And, I may actually take off a day on my next business trip to Sacramento and come for lunch mid-week. Keep up the good work.
Best Sangria anywhere! Reservation was perfect, no problems. Our original table wasn't quite ready and they immediately sat us at another table. Service was excellent on all sides. Our order was brought to our table very quickly. Everything was beyond delicious! We had tickets to the theatre and our dinner bill was delivered in plenty of time for us to get there. It was quite loud but that was just all the guests chatting, probably about how good their meals were. A very nice experience.
Staff allowed me to push our reservation out an hour with no hesitation. Our party of 12 really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you!
The food is okay, but it takes too long for it to be served. The only real good thing was the service.
I always notice the food served is on the cold side.
Very trendy, love the decor! Upscale Mexican food with amazing margaritas!
I love this spot and the fish tacos! Thanks for excellent service and margaritas.
The service was great! The service and attention was not a disappointment. Even though it was full because it was Mother’s Day, the staff was fully organized and prepared.
Loved everything as always. However, the music selection was unfitting to the ambience and the occasion. It was also a bit too loud. Other than that, we look forward to our next family celebration at Zocalos!
We sat outside. Staff made us very happy by accommodating our elderly group member so comfortably. Our reservation was ready right on time, and with room for our wheelchair. Thank you!
I ordered a taco salad. It had 1 small-sized tortilla, a few morsels of ground beef, a few morsels of beans, and covered with LOTS of greens. I've never seen beans that small. The lettuce was tasty but it was the worse example of a taco salad I had ever experienced. I brought my mother here for Mother's Day. I had been before many years ago and was never impressed with the food. I thought I'd try again but I am done. My son ordered a rice bowl and it was nothing special. You go there for the drinks, ambiance, and vibe. If you want real Mexican food, do not go.
The food is always excellent. Also the service is very good.
Be prepared for a fast meal. Our food showed up while we were eating appetizers, and had our check on the table within 40 minutes of sitting down. It’s not a leisurely meal, though I’m sure they would’ve been fine if we sat a little longer.
The server was very courteous and the food is fantastic. I would still definitely recommend.
Favorite place with the best location. We love coming for happy hour for drinks and apps.
To the eye it was a very nice place although very noisy. Service was good and the mariachis were very enjoyable. The food was mediocre and bland. I hope that this was an off night for the kitchen
Had a nice time
As always, great food and service!
Awesome food and good athmospere in the Restaurant
My aunt and I had a great time at Zocalo. Scott was our server and he was outstanding from start to finish. In fact, it was his professional attitude and the great conversation with my aunt that made our visit so awesome. WE will return soon. Thank you Scott.
Great venue! The staff were speedy, kind and the food was excellent. They were very accommodating to our large party.
First time for breakfast in a while and the food was very good.
This place is a favorite and the fact that they take reservations on OpenTable makes it even better! It was easy to get a same-day reservation for three for a busy Saturday night. The margaritas and the food are excellent! I've never had a bad experience here. The restaurant is lively so if you are looking for a quiet, romantic setting this may not be the place. But this is a great place to come for a celebration or a night out on the town!
Wonderful food and flavors
Service tends to be slow here
We are up here visiting our daughter who attending Sac State and wanted to go to nice funky place. We got a seat inside close to the back looking outside to the street.
The hosts was rude, we made a reservation and got sat 20 min later then our reservation when their were open tables and every time we would go up to see how much longer she would ignore us and do whatever on her iPad. The server was amazing she did an amazing job. The food was nothing amazing for the price that you pay.
It was lovely and we were provided a VIP complimentary Hibiscus/lavender margarita and it was fabulous! Best happy hour in town! Pssst...the BlackBerry margarita is amazing!
Had to beg for water - food was subpar
They were great to us when an accident on the freeway made us late, they adjusted our reservation time no problem! Service and food were excellent as always, love their creative style, and it was more than any of us could eat, very generous size dinners. We were back in town to visit family and this was somewhere we thought of to go first when we saw it was close to the hotel!
Easter Brunch! Delicious!
Great food. Wonderful service!
Too loud in general and we were sat at a table where the sun was shining directly in our eyes and there were no shades.
Food is wonderful and service is very good. This is not your typical Mexican joint. Have been here twice and tried different dishes and all were special.
Nice atmosphere, but the food is not that good
Fabulous in every way! Rachelle was our server extraordinare. Thank you!
Excellent place, I LOVE IT. It was my first time coming and I would come back soon.
The sun was shinning directly into my husbands and friends eyes for a half hour, we were in a booth so we couldn't do much about it. I know you can't fix mother nature, but some sun shades for the windows would be beneficial for guests. My friend wore his sunglasses while inside to help with the glare. After the sun went behind the buildings it was much more enjoyable for everyone.
