Really disappointed. Made reservation for 6:15, not seated til 6:50. Sat five of us at a four top table. Ordered drinks, then a few minutes later dinner.

Dinner arrived before drinks. After waiting, meal felt rushed. Checked birthday with reservation, nothing.

Far from special, far from awesome.

It took a while to have our food order taken. But at least we received our chips and dips right after we sat down. When our food was finally ready, a person from the kitchen brought our food to the table. Then, he handed us food from one end of the table and had us pass the food down. We had 4 people on each side. So it was awkward.

As always the food did not disappoint although the chips were soggy and under fried. Service was terrible as we had no silverware, menus not cleared and dessert was not offered when my son's birthday dessert came. Any need we had was ignored as our server never checked back on us.

We enjoyed our Valentine’s Day dinner. The only downside to the food was the dessert! Cheesecake wasn’t that appealing and appetizing at all. Maybe if they would have serve like a flan, it would be more of a Mexican feel to it. Our table was not decorated as the other tables, no rose/ flower petals on it. Looking at the other tables, it makes me think that we were not part of the Valentine’s Day dinner which what we paid for. It made me think especially I am a girl that I wasn’t one of those girls to get those extra perks.

Food was fabulous, but was last minute told my date and I had to sit outside, despite my request to be inside, and our waiter was rushing us. It was Valentines Day, so I can understand why, but it felt as though we were in the way.

Valentines dinner for two . We shared appetizer portion really for one person split between two. Dinner entrees ok but not special.
Salad ok. The dessert was a shared one piece cheese cake cut into two and staggered across the plate ...cheese cake with citrus marmalade. It was a strange dry crumble consistency and the cracker crust was hard and soggy. Honestly, the wait person Jessica was awesome and I did not mind giving her the gratuity🤟🏻.

There was an 18% gratuity all together $130.00 dollars

I ordered the Manzala salad which was beautiful, but it was lacking some flavor; it needed something.

Outstanding and different food. Great service - efficient and friendly. Lovely decor. It is quite noisy, but that kind of adds to the festive feeling.

The food, drinks and service are always fantastic! Our server was well versed in the cocktails and entrees offering suggestions and her favorites. We had reservations and were seated within 10 minutes of the reserved time slot. Very pleased. It was a lovely celebration. Thank you!

Food was not as good as I was hoping. The asada wasn’t seasoned and didn’t have any flavor.

Great service, my guacamole is better, rice was cold and food was underwhelming for the price.

The main issue that my husband and I had was the noise level of the restaurant. It was difficult to have a conversation without raising your voice and because that's what everyone was doing, I couldn't help but hear the conversations of those around me. The food was good, the guacamole was outstanding. The service was very good.

Service was good. Ambiance really good. It’s the food that is bad. Bland guac. Bland fish tacos. Come here for drinks and ambiance but not for the food. This is for Roseville only, midtown is excellent

Service was subpar for Zocalo's. We made advanced reservations for a party of 5 and noted that we had 2 birthdays. We were seated at a table for 3 until I reminded the hostess that our rez was for 5. Her response was to add 2 place settings and crowded us into the same small booth. Our waiter was initially prompt in taking our orders, but immediately afterward a very large party of about 18 was seated in his section and we were mostly ignored thereafter. After finishing our meals, I flagged down another waiter to ask for our birthday desserts, and he hurried off for over 10 minutes. I gave up on seeing the desserts and had to go to the hostess station to ask for our check. Finally the desserts appeared along with our waiter and the check. Service was very poor for Zocalo's.

Got the french toast- fantastic, I’m not a huge fan of French toast but i like to try something new every time, so sweet and moist with just the right amount of topping. Boyfriend got arrachera con huevos, the meat was so tender and the flavors were amazing.

My husband and I were there for a New Year’s Eve dinner. The service was good. The table next to us obviously knew lots of employees there and they were possibly employees themselves. They were extremely loud and made it clear that not all of them at the table were of legal age to be drinking. One of the girls asked the hostess as she was walking by if she was 21 yet, she replied no and then a drink/straw was shoved into her face proving her a drink. The table next to us were very young and loud. I know it was a holiday but minors getting wasted is never something that I want to be next to.
