    They shut down a week ago but never shut down the website and still took reservations. Wasted our time.

    This is the worse Mexican restaurant I have visited. I'm Latino and I will never ever, ever go back to this establishment. The 3" tacos were an embarrassment to native Mexican food. They advertised Taco Tuesday for $11.00 but they don't honor it as the waitress said that the site was not updated, false advertisement as its best. The only good thing was the margarita my wife had, she was enjoying her drink but besides that.... not good, the server was good, but I feel I wasted $80 dollars.

    Had a reservation for 9:30. Friend lost her ID in the car so me and one party member went inside. Guy at front said we were late when we were in the 15 minute grace period still, and proceeded to tell us that we could sit at the bar and would not give us a table. We left after one drink because the drinks were not great either.

    Everything was good. But this place has so much more potential. There needs to be more food options and also having food with sides. I ordered the Don Pedro tacos and they were ok. It was just 3 small tacos and no sides. Honestly the menu, and pricing, needs improvement.

    THE worst experience of my life. This place is extremely overpriced and the food is bland. Had a reservation for 5:30, we were kicked out of our section by 6:45. The waitress "Emily" was EXTREMELY rude and unprofessional. We asked for the price of certain items and she said with an attitude "I don't know". She refused to provide us with any additional assistance. She treated us like we were bothering her. We asked to speak with a manager, when the manager arrived we asked why we were being kicked out, his response "You've been here too long" Excuse me? I've never been rushed out of an establishment before. The manager was useless and basically told us we had to move from the table we reserved. I asked for the owner's name and he said he could not give me that info. This place is racist and has TERRIBLE service. There was nothing done to rectify the situation, except to tell us to leave. I am extremely disappointed and WILL NEVER visit this place again. If you are a person of color DON'T EAT AT DON PEDRO.

    Our waiter barely spoke to us. The food tasted okay but not worth the price at all. The tacos were tiny street taco size but cost like classic tacos and had barely anything except the pork. The drinks arrived in plastic cups and not once were our waters refilled. The decor is really nice but the service and food is meh.

    Went with a few friends and we were all pleasantly surprised by our food. The guacamole and queso fundido were delicious and so was dinner. Everything was tasty and full of flavor! Service was a bit on the slow side but servers kept checking on us and the margaritas were really good. We’ll definitely come back!

    Although they seem to be trying, it feels like a night club that was never cleaned up, just turned over into a restaurant. The tables were dirty and uncomfortable and there was nothing done to them to look festive or inviting. The large patio could have been super cool but the garden had weeds everywhere and there was a big, full trash can we had to walk around to get to the tables. We weren't given silverware or napkins until after our main course came. The waiter, although friendly, did not know anything about the menu and kept having to double check. The food was tasty, but overpriced. I feel bad giving a bad review but we really love authentic Mexican food and wanted to like the place. Don Pedro's needs an intervention if its going to make it.

    Food was great. Services was average at best. We stayed until late to listen to the DJ. Music was great but the later evening got to be too much. It was way to crowded and people there became very rowdy. I hope they are able to better control who enters - otherwise this will be another spot gone bad.

    Would not return. Atmosphere and decor were great but drinks were awful (our group had to send 3 back over the course of the evening; I have never sent a drink back). Food was ok, under seasoned. I wanted to love Don Pedro but it was meh.

    Arrived at 6:00 on a Tuesday. At 6:30 the DJ started playing club music. It was deafening. Our server apologized repeatedly. Not sure if Don Pedro is trying to be a restaurant or a club. We will not be back.

    Very disappointing evening that would have been a complete disaster if it wasn’t for the manager getting involved. We waited an unacceptable amount of time for a server to come over (considering there were only 1 or 2 other tables) and after a hour, our chips, salsa, and guacamole still hadn’t arrived. Server started off apologetic but then basically just ignored us. We eventually went to the manager as we didn’t want to wait any longer and planned to leave but fortunately he was able to get the food delivered ASAP. Service then improved and food was fine but too pricey considering rice and beans are separate. People at the bar arrived way after us and were served their dinners before us. I understand that every is short on staff but communication is key. Sadly, we will not be back.

    They need to decide if they are going for a high-end restaurant experience or not. The food was unique and tasty. Charging for a side of rice or beans with a $32 entree is ridiculous. The wine options were mediocre. The wait times were long and the service inexperienced. The decor and atmosphere were nice. I hope they work out the kinks, so may try again in a few months. It wasn’t terrible, just very uneven.

    Before going to Don Pedro I read that reviews, which were all over the place. I went with three friends. Three of us really enjoyed our meals. The fourth person ordered Totodos Mexicana. I turned out to be nacho chips with sparse topping on the top. After the top layer was gone, there was just plain chips. Not much for the $16 it cost. The staff was very friendly and our waiter, Alex, very attentive. My one complaint was that the music was too loud and it was hard to converse with the person at the end of the six person table.

    It's different from your average Mexican place, in terms of food and decor. Service was excellent (it was early on a Wednesday, so not busy) and the price was modest. The menu featured some of the usual Mexican items but a bunch of unusual items, too. We'll certainly be back.

    I really wanted to like this restaurant but the service was poor and our order was quite wrong. Most of the other Mexican restaurants in the area offer substantially better food and service at a lower price point. I will say that the dancing inside looked very fun though!

    I know this place is new so hopefully they are just working through the kinks and will make adjustments as they go. The food is OK - you can easily find better tacos in Rochester. The service staff is clearly still learning and seemed unprepared. It's a great location, but we won't be back for awhile.

    slow service, waitress had an attitude. NO VEGETARIAN OPTIONS AT ALL. and chef cannot substitute beans for any of the meats. waitress didn't tell us about the taco Tuesday specials- we found out from the table next to us who found out by accident. Drinks took over 20 minutes but were pretty good. Pricey for what you get.

    Ordered the Tacos Al Pastor. Pork was overcooked and had absolutely no flavor whatsoever. I'm not even sure how you make food to taste like nothing. Also ordered the lamb. The lamb tasted on the verge of expiring freshness. Wait staff was pleasant and the atmosphere was trendy. But the food was absolutely not worth the price.
