Went to Yo Amo Tacos for my Birthday celebration on Saturday. The wait betweem getting drinks and ordering Apps was long, even longer to actually get food. We had 7:30 reservations and we did not get food until almost 930pm (and that was only one dish) the rest slowly came out. One of the meals was wrong TWICE! We were a party of 11 and were given a party of 10+ menu. I asked to see the regular menu, waitress mentioned that it would take longer to get food off the regular menu. We ALL ordered from the 10+ menu but when we complained how long it was taking she very rudely said "that's what happens when you order off the regular menu" but we all ordered either Burritos, Tacos or Quesadillas. At a Mexican restaurant, that should be quick! I was quickly reminded by my guests that the last time we had gone there, the service and wait time was the same. Food is delicious, so maybe take out will be my choice from now on. No more dining in! Also, it says live entertainment, but we left past 10pm and no live entertainment started. Disappointed!

Filthy place. After touching the sticky menu we had to wash our hands. My family of 6 went to have a nice night out. My daughters enchilada came out with most ingredients missing; it only had chicken, no rice, beans etc. still got charged for it. Waitress took a tip saying its policy for 6 or more. It’s called a TIP for a reason. Taking a tip on your own is stealing. The place was almost empty and we now know why. Stay away from this filthy and thieving restaurant.

Although the tacos were very good, the apps were disappointing. Great look and feel of the restaurant but the service is the slowest I’ve ever experienced dining out. Waiting over half hour for our drinks and food was much longer than that. Seemed to only have two waitresses working the entire place.

Hassle at the door even with reservations booked through open table. Lack of items in stock on menu. Very slow service. Wrongly billed. Food was great and the ambiance was cute, but we definitely wouldn’t go back.

Reservations were made — via open table . Place was pretty much empty except for two tables in use. we got place at the back corner . When asked why here — can we please be moved ? The waitress look at us as if we had 3 heads each . We got up and left ... with out even a suggestion to accommodate us .
It’s unfortunate as I usually defend the place for poor and slow service because the food once you get it is pretty good however,, I will not be doing that anymore .

Having been here before I knew that the food & drink is definitely worth it.
My partner and I got there and was seated promptly (we had reservations). We were celebrating an anniversary- it was not acknowledge; I am sure I made a note when I made the reservation.
No one greeted us at our table for 20 mins. and as a pregnant lady I was running out of patience faster than usual. There were servers serving neighboring tables. We finally went to sit at the bar. Of course the bartender was faster at serving us. I was sadden that we had to sit there because it is not very comfortable seating while pregnant nor as intimate but I was hungry by that time. Our food took long however there were a few large parties that had to be entertained, so it was ok. My partner had a cocktail that was enjoyable. Another cocktail or two would have been ordered had we been asked. The bartender was very nice just swamped.
The food is always great here! so I will go back back however if the service is the same; I will think twice for future events.

The food was Really Good, wish the portion were bigger and less pricey. The live music was amazing but the dance floor was small. Overall the service was wonderful and they were very accommodating to all my last min changes/requests. Had a fun night with my party group. Will be going back again 😊

Slowest service I've ever experienced
Only 2 waitresses for the entire place, didn't get service until 30 mins after we sat down
Drinks took 30 mins to come out, food took an hour
The kitchen either messed up or didn't make things that we ordered
Nice waitress but it was so understaffed that everything was just working against her

Service is slow and place is always cold. I think they should have more staffing if it's going to help with the slowness. Ceviche always seems to run out. The place is nice and food is pricey for it's quality. I think it needs improvement. When I complained to the manager all he did was give us free tequila. Seems that's how they solve thier problems.

Expensive and portions are so small . I ordered meat on my nachos and fajitas and there was literally 4 pieces and I paid extra for both. Not good wouldn’t recommend at all.

We were hoping for live music as advertised, this is the fourth time we have been to the place and no music, OK atmosphere, drinks a little pricy.!! They could and should do better.

I've been there before and the food is good. But on Friday night we booked a two seat for me and my wife. Once we arrived we noticed how busy it was. Patiently we waited at the door for someone to greet us. After 5-10 minutes of staff walking by us, staring, and continue to ignore us. Like they were thinking, someone else can get them. Then finally a man, who priir to greeting us was talking with the staff, right infront of us and ignored us. Finally came greeted us. He was shocked that we booked something on a Friday night. Said something along as oh you must have booked it right now. We booked it an hour prior before we drove there. Then he decided to just walk away. Us thinking he would find us a spot. He never came back. Unapologetic service. Almost like, how dare you book of a Friday night when we are so busy. As a former restaurant manager I am very sympathetic towards hospitality staff, but I also know when I'm being ignored and mistreated as a guest. I will never go back there again. They don't need my business and I sure don't need their services.

Cheers

Excellent ambiance and food. However, be prepared to wait! We booked for 8:30 via open table and didn’t get our table till 9:30 and chips and guacamole till 10:15... once we got our food.. it was delicious. Usually they are really good but not sure if it had to do with online booking even though I had spoken to them over the phone to confirm the reservation.

I had an amazing experience at this restaurant. The atmosphere was above and beyond, really made me feel like I was on vacation, this had to be the best Mexican spot on all Toronto/GTA.
My server was perfect-friendly and gave good suggestions I think her name was corrina.
I highly recommend this restaurant, I look forward to going back!
The only reason why I didn’t give it full starts on service was a manager or owner came in and he seemed a bit aggressive or stressed out.

No complaints! You can tell the server has a passion for food & was quick to give you a mini history lesson about the culture of the food. Can’t wait to go back!

Overpriced for the amount of food you get and the taste is ok but not the greatest. I thought it was going to be amazing. Pitchers are way overpriced overall I think you can get more for your money elsewhere.

I had read reviews about the service and food being poor but I was naive and still gave it a shot. I had ordered nachos, asking for guacamole on the side and I assume our waitress forgot and it was plastered all over the nachos. To add, I received my drinks AFTER both my appetizers, as I had to remind my waitress that she had forgotten our drinks and she asked what we ordered again. My whole table ordered tacos and there was the bare minimum of toppings and choice of meat/fish in our tacos (70% tortilla shell). I asked specifically for NO cilantro on any of the food served at our table, yet there was cilantros in my tacos. My friend was then charged $25 for her fish tacos when the menu clearly states $17 and the waitress replied, "oh we upped the prices on the menu". Uh, so we're not going to mention that anywhere?
To be honest, it could be SO MUCH BETTER! There is so much potential, but I personally will not be returning.
