My wife and I enjoyed a nice lunch on a beautiful autumn day. Food was great and plenty (not too much). Service was prompt and w/o delay. Will be back

Love that there are plenty of vegetarian options. The service was fantastic and we were able to get our “preferred” fable on the front patio. It’s in the corner and ou little dog loves it there. Love going there. The food portions are so generous that we actually had some to bring home. Great restaurant!

Great service very friendly and polite. The food was really good, and refreshing take on traditional Mexican food. We went to celebrate a special event with friends and we all had a wonderful time sitting outside with the heaters on. Just perfect

We had a great lunch with delicious food and the best server Jessica. The only down side was it was a company lunch without their amazing Margaritas. Love their drinks!

We made reservations for 5 for my birthday. Upon arrival of the first three of us, the hostess sat us in the far back corner of the patio at a two top... even so, there were already three of us! We explained that we have 5 (the other two were parking the car in the WORST parking situation EVER.) people. She moved us to a 4 top and said we could just throw another chair at the end of the table. This is after we walked past many open 6 top tables in both the front and back patio. No extra menus... no extra place settings... no politeness... nothing. Our server was friendly, but not able to be attentive because she was clearly manning a section too large for her abilities. We had to ask food runners for drink refills, had to ask more than three times to get water pitchers, and of the two drinks we ordered from the bar - one of them wasn't even the right drink! Not that we could have had it fixed... she never came back to the table until after the meal was nearly finished. It's difficult to be upset, we could see her busy with other tables... but being in the far back corner of the restaurant/patio, we were definitely out of sight and out of mind. For the price of the meal, the service was dreadful - even if the waitress was sweet. We also had to endure the clamor of empty kegs being thrown around aggressively behind us for a significant portion of our visit. While the food was good, it wasn't worth the expense for the experience.

Really good food in a really nice setting. Portions are always so large, so while it is pricey you do get plenty for what you paid for. Great drink and beer selection. Perfect for date night.

The restaurant was very busy even though it was early evening. The server was attentive and the quickly prepared. The restaurant was celebrating Mexican Independence day which added some nice items to the menu and seemed to change the ambiance a bit.

Both my wife and I were sick for a day after eating lunch at Zocolo Roseville. Food smelled weird when it arrived but we were hungry and the place was packed so we didn’t want to send the food back. Thought it was just the mashup of smells from the packed place. Won’t make that mistake again, or go back there to eat. Too many other good Mexican restaurants in town to choose from.

They continue to be a excellent choice for lunch or dinner. The service is the best in the area as well as unique food dishes. The only issue I have is the noise level inside the dining room it’s way too loud and difficult to talk to your guests.

Met friends at the restaurant and it was packed! Granted, we don’t live in the area so this may be the norm for locals. We were seated quickly and drinks delivered promptly thereafter. The server had a quiet voice and the place is LOUD! If you’re out to party, this could be a decent place but if you want to visit with friends and not have to yell across the table, probably not. Food and drinks were of good quality and value but nothing spectacular.

We ate here twice this week! So good! Pretty noisy though, so a little hard to hold a conversation. We ate outside one of the times and it was nice. Quick service, awesome food!

One of us ordered enchiladas and the cheese inside was not even melted and the enchiladas were cold. I ordered a bowl with steak and the steak was tough. Not sure if would I go back again. I didn't have a great experience with the food the last time I went and thought I would give it another try.

My wife and I eat here a couple times a month. The food is very good, service is good , my only complaint is there is not enough seating inside and it is extremely loud inside. Trying to hold a conversation with other people at your table is nearly impossible! I would recommend this restaurant to friends just let them know it is noisy inside.

Service is really bad but the food is delicious. Server brought out settings for 3 when we had 4 people had to ask for everything multiple times. Really slow and need to train servers

I am concerned that I think I got overcharged. I paid for 2 meals and no drinks. My card was charged $67.00. The meals were under $20 each. The waiter was very busy and across the table from me. I was in the sun and could not see the screen. I sign best that I could and did not get a receipt. I think he charged me for 3 meals.

Food and ambiance was good. Service for the price tag was less than expected. Our server seemed very disconnected from us.

One thing I cannot stand while enjoying a meal is a server who comes by the table with someone else’s dirty dishes in my face asking how are meal is. Find another opportunity to come by without the dirty dinner dishes in your hands.

And the other- don’t bring us the check, actually drop it on the table and say, oh, did you want dessert? Is it free, cause ya just gave us our check.

Lastly, as much as I appreciate the offer to box up our meals, last thing I want boxing them are the hands who just brought dirty dishes to my table. No thanks, I’ll box it myself.

For the price tag, I would expect high quality of service. Training much needed.

It’s good overall but not great. Our food was served several minutes before silverware came and even though we sat outside in the 100+ degree heat we got small water glasses and a small pitcher and had to wait often to get it refilled. Also, when asking for modifications to a salad to make it vegan (substituting the goat cheese for more vegetables or avocado) the waiter said there would still be plenty of food on the plate. I told him that wasn’t the issue, I just didn’t want to pay the same price for a salad with a main ingredient left out without some sort of substitution. That is one of my biggest pet peeves eating out. I say no meat or dairy but ask to sub more veggies/or avocado and they either still want to charge me extra or don’t know how to accommodate it without making it super awkward. Anyways I would go here again if friends suggested it but I personally wouldn’t. Just a “meh” experience.

This place is a great place to hang out with friends. I've come here with coworkers and friends and it's always nice. The food is also great. I've always enjoyed eating the food that I order here. Customer service is also good. We don't normally have a long wait even if we're in a big party. They are also very accommodating if you have special requests. Their happy hour is also good. They have good drink specials. I highly recommend this place no matter the occasion.

We made a reservation for 10 people. We were celebrating with our family and some out of town guests. I called a few days prior to also request a high chair. We made the reservation at 5:15pm in hopes our experience would be easier as that is not a prime dinner time for a Friday night. We were sat at the round table in the bar area. The distance between the table and seat couldn’t even safely accommodate a booster for our 2 year old son. The service was subpar as we were clearly being served by the waitress tending to the bar area. The Asada tasted like it had been frozen for too long and then cooked. We have always had a great experience and wanted to share that with our friends and family but the service and lack of attention to our reservation needs really made our experience less than wonderful. The table we sat at is not conducive for any child at any age because they can reach the table.

We arrived about a half hour early for our reservation. We were immediately seated and given water, chips and salsa. We ordered guacamole (Which was very good) and it was at our table in just a few minutes. We ordered a pitcher of blackberry margaritas which had kind of an off taste and I did not care for it that much. Our food came out very quickly and I enjoyed it. Our waiter (Pablo?) was excellent and took good care of us. He continually came by and refilled our glasses and checked if we needed anything. I had read reviews where they had some bad reviews. I did not see that at all. The food was very good and came out quick even though they were very busy, the service was excellent and we were extremely happy with our visit. We will definitely return again.

As always, the food was excellent. Having a 6 oclock reservation and then not being seated for almost an hour later was a disappointment. Our table was close to other clients and the flies were almost unbearable.
