I've been to Zocalo numerous times and their guacamole is awesome. I tried the taco salad with tri-tip, and the meat was somewhat chewy and not sliced as thin as I am accustomed to eating.

Our server Sydney took 10 minutes to even greet us. Another server, Tanner, who was wonderful had to step in to take our order. Sydney never offered us refills and kept trying to rush us through our meal. Our meals did not come out as we ordered them

Food was fantastic but they didn't have enough servers, brought us water when we first sat down but didn't refill again and they are small glasses. Three of us ordered carnitas and they brought 3 flour tortillas for us to share. When we asked for more they brought 2. After that we gave up. The food is great, the margaritas are great, but the service left a lot to be desired.

Not Zocalo Roseville
The steak on my salad was so overcooked and looked like beef jerky. Very unappetizing. I had to return salad . It was my mMother's bday so they brought out a bowl of Ice cream with churros. The ice cream was hard as a rock. Had to return that also. Very disappointed with service and food. The waiter was rushing us.... won't be back

Delicious and creative Mexican food with outstanding chips and salsa. Service was also beyond satisfactory. A little too loud for my liking but had a great time anyway.

Good food and good service. It was very crowded and loud.
We had to 30 mins past our reservation time. However, our patience was rewarded. The manger comped out guacamole and drinks.
I would recomend Zocalo. I will go again, probably not on a Saturday night.

Made sure to call to confirm we were coming and still bringing the same amount of people. Seated at time of reservation. Server was really nice, had people sing birthday and cut cake for us which was super nice. Drinks took a little long to get to table and some food was cold. Overall good experience though.

Reservation was at 6:45 pm, got there right at 6:40 but still had to wait 20 min to get seated...was extremely noisy and crowded. Food got there same time as appetizer, and felt rushed. Overall food was good, not exceptional. had the shrimp cerviche appetizer and it was extremely vinegary. Buritto bowl had barely any guacamole in it.

Hi! I'm a local. My fiance and I usually go to Zocalo once a month. I never had a bad experience at this specific location. A server that really stands out is Adolfo. He has a great personality, he is quick and responsive, and observant. Another person that stands out is the manager (I don't' know his name). He keeps the place under control to the best of his ability. Don't worry about having your glass or chips refilled, because the manager will have it before you have the chance to ask. The urgency of these two guys is very much appreciated.

I love this restaurant. My problem was the Valentines dinner special occasion. The food was excellent as usual. The wait staff person did an ok job. The problem was that for a very expensive experience they had a time frame in which we had to eat. This made the meal feel rushed .

The meal is supposed to have multiple corses but some were served at the same time . The drinks and appetizers came out quickly and were delicious. Then without much time to eat the appetizers, came the salad course ( one plate for both to share ) with the entree. The common salad plate was awkwardly placed on the center of an already crowded table. To eat the salad we had to reach over our sauced entrees, putting our apparel in a perilous predicament. But what irked me most is that a multitible prefixed special ocaassion is meant to be enjoyed at a relaxed pace, course by course , with a small intervening rest between courses. But efficiency seemed more the goal of the staff.

To make matters worse we were asked on two occasions if we were done with our entrees while we had our utensils in hand and were actively eating the meal.

The setting was romantic, the music a bit loud , food deliscious, and pace pressured. If having the prefixed multi course meals offered in the future, please allow more time for the patrons to eat, and serve each course as a separate event.

The food was outstanding and the staff was on top of it, attentive and genuinely friendly. Despite being out of napkins (which is a strange thing for a restaurant to be out of), and a huge party of 30+ people next to us, the staff were very professional and we were very well taken care of. It was my birthday so it was a great night!

Over all it was a wonderful event for my daughter. However, I booked a party a couple of weeks out and I was a little upset to find out that we were put in a back room where another party was and we had to ALMOST climb over them to get to our table because the room was to small. I feel because I had booked for such a large group(and there’s was also) we shouldn’t have been in the same small space. Or they should not have accepted my reservation.

Although we arrived earlier than our scheduled reservation they had us seated within a minute or two. Service was excellent and the food was just as good. Parking can be a challenge but that is a reflection on how popular the restaurant is.

We go here for birthdays frequently and love the food. The service is fantastic. Be sure to have a reservation if you don’t have 30-45 minutes to wait. The bass is a little heavy on their music but otherwise we love this place!

THIS WAS MY BIRTHDAY DINNER AND YOUR STAFF WAS EMBARRASSED WITH MY GUESTS. OTHER TABLES HAD BIRTHDAY DINNERS AS WELL AND RECEIVED A SING ALONG AND ICE CREAM WITH CHURROS. I DID NOT AND THE WAITER KNEW IT WAS A BIRTHDAY DINNER. MY WIFE HAD TO ASK FOR THE BIRTHDAY GESTURE AND THE WAITER SIMPLY BROUGHT ME THE ICE CREAM AND CHURROS, BUT NO SING ALONG. MY TABLE TO 11 LOOKED SURPRISED AND WERE UPSET WITH YOUR STAFF. I TRIED TO MAKE THE BEST OF IT AND ENJOY THE EVENING, BUT THAT WAS A VERY LOW POINT AND TOWARD THE END OF OUR TIME THERE.

This was the first time my wife and I have eaten here. Very limited on items to order, what we did get was great! The restaurant seems to be more of a fun type Happy Hour restaurant , very loud talking and music. Beautiful inside and they offer a nice patio outside that looked great for summer time . Good food Good drinks, I would recommend .
