Very pleasant atmosphere, great food, reasonable price
bday:) great! Epic awesome!!!
Really loud bar like atmosphere. Bad service from plate/meal server.
Great atmosphere. Friendly, attentive service. Tasty food.
My new favorite is the Blackberry Margarita!!!!
Great food and service, would highly recommend it. Definitely make reservations though cause it gets really busy.
Excellent and delicious Mexican food! Guacamole very tasty and fresh!
Outstanding food and service. Restaurant was noisy enough that it was hard to hear one another speaking some of the time in our group of 4. This was at the dinner rush though so easily forgiven. Great location for taking a walk around midtown after a great meal too. Excellent margaritas!
Accidentally got to restaurant in time for happy hour. Good ale toon including drinks. Delicious!
Our first time at Zocalo with a party of 5 and we were disappointed. The waitress was slow and did not appear to be attentive. We were served coffee and tea, but no spoons. The table needed sugar and it took over five minutes to have it placed on our table, by then our beverages were lukewarm. The pozole was lukewarm and needed to be reheated. We never received spoons. The food was adequate but not as tasty as it could have been. Overall we were not impressed and will not return.
However, we did dine at the Howe location on the Cinco de Mayo last year and it was the opposite experience.
Food amazing, service ehh. No where to really stand waiting for your table (even tho we had a reservation). We felt as if we were rushed to kick us out to make room for the next table.
The worst part of the restaurant is its noise lever. What you have in the check off list as "energetic" I would rate "unbearable" --at least 78 decibels inside the restaurant. We were about to leave because of the noise level when the hostess suggested outside, which indeed was quieter. There were outdoor heaters and the temperature was comfortable although this is January. The noise level inside would have stifled any meaningful conversation.
One of my favorite places downtown. Beautiful building decorated amazingly with great service!
Zocalo never ceases to please me in every way. The staff is very courteous, hospitable and pleasane. The food is exquisite. The service is always superb!. It's always a pleasurable experience going there.
We took a friend from out of town to dinner. When we walked in the door the noise was overwhelming. Even though the evening was on the cold side we opted for outdoor seating. With the heaters on it was warm enough and we could converse without shouting. Even with the noise Zocalo is worth the trouble because the food is excellent reasonably priced and the service is always good and the servers are happy and helpful.
I Love Zocalo, but the noise level on a friday night makes it nearly impossible to have a conversation at a table bigger than 2 people.
Really good food here! It's pretty noisy and the service getting the check was a tad slow, but food was out promptly.
Beautiful rooms, great service. Food was great!
The food and service is good however it’s very loud! I enjoy background music but everyone seem to be yelling because the was so music and our group really couldn’t enjoy a conversation during dinner. I would recommend lowering the music and not dimming the lights so much. I like to see my food.
Our server was exceptional! Baja Fish tacos and Enchilada was very good. Cant wait to go back at Zocalo’s
We were pleasantly surprised by Zocalo Midtown - everything was really delicious! We had eaten at their East Sac location some months ago and felt it was so-so, hence our surprise at the quality of the food at the midtown location. We had the guacamole appetizer served with a warm bean dip (that was REALLY yummy) and a very good salsa; the guac was good too. My partner had enchiladas mole, and we both thought the mole was out of this world. The chicken in the enchiladas was tender. I had the salmon "bol" (bowl), which is more of a salad but wonderful and healthy (included baby kale, brown rice, whole beans, etc). The room is a bit noisy on a Friday night but we were able to carry on a conversation. Definitely recommend this place.
While food and service was good (and I know it was new year's eve), the mariachi band was so loud that we could not hear each other talk for the majority of our dinner. We could have done without the band or perhaps the band not parked right next to our table for over 30 minutes.
It was great! We celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday with his friends from out of town and they were impressed with our choice!
Son’s 21st birthday! Thanks for making him feel special
Our server seemed to be in a bad mood
Went on a dinner date with someone here and had a great time eating the burritos and drinking some margaritas.
The music volume was overboard for an early Sunday meal. The food and people were great though!
Great place, great food, glad we made a reservation!
Excellent food! I always enjoy coming to this restaurant.
Holiday family gathering
We love this restaurant! We always eat here when we visit Sacramento. The food and margaritas are outstanding, and the staff is always friendly and accommodating! The restaurant is also very pretty and was festively decorated for the Holidays.
The food and service were very good. It is loud in the restaurant, but not to the level where you can't hear each other. Also, all the dishes we ordered had a bit of bite. I am not sure if there is anything on their menu that is mild, but we had 5 different dishes and each seemed to have some type of pepper in it. Overall, this was a good experience.
Server had us (party of 17) and two other tables (6 and 4). Long period of time in between being able to order a drink and receive it. He was nice and as efficient as possible. Food came out like warm and some even cold. Should have had two servers working on such a large group. Even the order taking was a long process for just none person. Overall I would 100% recommend for smaller groups. We were also sitting by the host stand so every time the door opened cold air blasted us. Had to keep my winter coat on for entire visit.
It’s the perfect setting for our annual post-shopping Christmas dinner! The decorations are beautiful and the festive atmosphere is a treat!
Celebrated wife’s birthday.
I was proposing to my partner and the service was okay. But it was too noisy. Could have ask for a room.
The restaurant was very loud with club like music playing on a Thursday night at 7pm. The food was good, but personally you can get better at a local taqueria for half of the price.
The food and customer service has always been amazing.
The food here is always super delicious! It's quite loud in there but the ambience is beautiful!
Service was sloppy and slow. The noise level was off the charts. We were very disappointed.
