Zocalo - University Village
Food quality was very disappointing. Service was ok.
Service was slow, perhaps table assignments imbalanced. Appeared an attempt to hide overcooked/crisp carnitas beneath the produce in a burrito bowl. Disappointing.
Had a great experience! We went for a work lunch and were happy with everything. The food was delicious and the staff was great. We will definitely come back.
This is one of my favorite places to eat. The prices are reasonable and the location is great. The staff is helpful and efficient. The food is delicious and drinks are so tasty.
We have been coming her for our lunch meeting. Everyone is always accommodating and nice. It is a wonderful atmosphere and great food!
Tuesday nite after Labor Day, not crowded. John excellent server, very attentive. 2 of us had the chille relent, not impressed 5he chille was crunchy obviously underdone, very ho- hum. Same with the salmo n bowls , underwhelming, we’ll give it another try, like the location and the space. Margaritas really good, a little too pricey.
Decor very cool, food delicious and fresh with great service!
We were seated right away. The blackberry margaritas are my new favorite. Mole enchiladas were exquisite. Service was great!
We enjoyed the service and our meal, however the noise volume was so loud that our party could not have a conversation without talking loudly and asking each other to repeat what we said. We couldn’t wait to leave.

Our whole group had a great time and those that were first timers really enjoyed themselves.
The proportions are large and excellently prepared. The tacos looked amazing, but I enjoyed the Pepita Salad with chicken. I’ve already recommended this location as it is much quieter than the downtown restaurant.
Stunning design, wide open spaces, several seating style options - it was great! Food was very good, service was good. The only odd thing is that the sink for the bathroom is located just outside of the bathroom. Will definitely go there again.
Food delicious and service great. I love their cilantro rice! We had the chicken enchiladas and carnitas plate. Loved it. Only issue was the restaurant is a bit loud and the music was almost night club like.
The food was really good and the margarita was my favorite
Loved being outside. Much less noise!
order taking can be slow but meals come out FAST. drinks are slower to arrive. parking is ok on weekdays, but VERY crowded weekends.
Good food and the witness was excellent.
My family enjoys going there, our favorite Mexican restaurant!
The food and service were very good. One person in our party is gluten free (not at all by choice, it's a medical condition). I asked about the chips and was told they were corn but were prepared in a shared fryer. I stated that then were not gluten free. She said "oh, it's just a little bit so it's ok". Well, I wasn't asking for advice and it's very much not ok. She should be careful with that type of advice! I appreciate that the menu stated clearly that corn tortillas were available on request.
Fancy Mexican restaurant. Great food and service. Loud. Almost like going to a club. I enjoyed it!
Zocalo is our go-to restaurant when we want delicious food in a fun, lively environment. The staff is always friendly. Once you are seated, the wait time between ordering and eating isn’t long at all.
Extremely loud! Difficult to carry on a conversation. Took forever to be waited on. Server thought we paid but we didn’t. Could have left without paying our bill, but we didn’t. Cold food! Will not return.. oh! And parking was a nightmare. took 15 minutes to find .
As always , we enjoy the food that we order !
Not very crowded, waiter delivered food but we waited quite some time to just get the tortillas for the tacos, received sauce, beans, rice and meat but waited a long time for the tortillas
We had a lovely time at happy hour at an after-work get together.
We took my brother there for his birthday. The place was very busy for 1 pm on a Wed and pretty noisy as the carpeting was minimal. The food was a level above most Mexican restaurants. There was a mix up with my brother’s order and the manager comped his meal. By 2 the noise level had reduced enough so we stayed and finished the pitcher of blackberry margaritas. Yum!
Im sure there are better servers..my only real issue.
Their food is not good, I expect some real Mexican food but places were they give you rice and beans with your food is not REAL Mexican food.
Had a wonderful date night with my beautiful wife. We had great food and drinks. Music was playing and had us grooving in our seats.
The service is always friendly, attentive, and professional. The food is always delicious consistently. It is a great restaurant to any occasions. My family and I love this restaurant and have been there many times.
Our waiter, Davit, was good and the food was great. Celebrated my birthday low key and had a nice evening. Thanks
As always, my favorite lunch is the carnitas tacos. Can never go wrong with this dish. Everyone in our group was very happy with what they ordered. Inside is too noisy so we opted to sit outside. It wasn't a real hot day so that worked well. The music was a bit loud but, overall, it was great.
Food was very good.
The ceviche is my favorite dish of all Sacramento restaurants!! Great happy hour! Gorgeous restaurant!
Love love love!
Awesome-everything. Great food, drinks are amazing, staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Vibe and atmosphere is fun for any occasion
My friend and I met for happy hour. We both really enjoyed blackberry margaritas, ceviche, quesadillas and tostadas that were all on the happy hour menu. It was a very hot evening and we chose to sit inside in the air conditioning. Service was great! My only complaint was that it was very noisy. I think next time I go, I will either go earlier or on a cooler evening when we can sit outside.
Food was unbelievable! Restaurant was so pretty and service was good also!
We went for our sons' birthdays. We all enjoyed our meals and the Zocalo team made it extra special with the sparklers on the desserts. It was very sweet how many team members came by and wished them a happy 5th birthday. :)
