Disappointing. Been wanting to try this place because its always booked up on the weekends for a month straight. Service sucked. Food and margaritas were mediocre and ambiance was lacking for a prime location in E 4th. Needs an entire overhaul.

A little pricey for what you get. A $5 taco wasn’t pretty small and nothing really came with it. The kids meal $4.99 taco was a better deal because at least you got rice and beans with it (but obviously only 10 and under can order that). The rest of the food wasn’t anything special. Went a few years ago and I feel like it has changed since. I don’t think I would go back, but it’s morn a horrible restaurant. Just better ones out there these days.

Server was excellent. But the carnitas were so overcooked that they looked like charcoal and tasted like charcoal. Instead of risking my food being tampered with I ate the pickled veggies and grilled pineapple. Don't recommend it to anyone. The restaurant wasn't busy. No reason to be sending food out like that.

The food was fresh, modern, and had well blended complimentary flavors. The prices were more than reasonable. Our 'go to' type of restaurant is always Mexican and we have eaten at hundreds of Mexican restaurants around the country, this one definitely tops the list. Beautuful ambience with awesome service. If you are in Cleveland you have to make time for their eats.

Zocalo was fantastic, the tacos were amazing and our waiter was outstanding however, the girl at the front was not friendly and did not take care of our reservation properly so we did not collect our points.
As a matter of fact when we checked in we told her that we had a reservation through Open Table and she told us they didn't accept reservations that day.
Outside of her obviously over whelment with the hostess position I would got back in a heartbeat!

We went for a work lunch and had 1 hour. The service was horrible - we were told (after asking twice) that they were out of chips. We got chips and they were stale. Our food took over a half hour and the restaurant was less than a quarter full (the patio was half full). I never had a bad experience there until the other day. As a former GM of a restaurant, I was very disappointed with the service and food. The waitress told us that the kitchen was really backed up (after we asked about our food after 25 minutes) and then she avoided our table (no refills with water etc) until the food came. Then, when the food did come, the waitress didn't even know which tacos were which. We didn't ask to see a manager but it would have been nice to have someone stop by and at least comp our drinks or something. I understand that things run over and that things can be unpredictable in the restaurant world. But being on an hour lunch (that we told her we had one hour) and then being 45 minutes late back to work is totally unacceptable. Won't be going back.

Had a great visit and the food and service was incredible!! The only complaint would be the flies that were bothering us the entire meal. This is because the whole front of the building is open to the street...maybe a screen over that area would help. Other than that a great experience!! A-

Reservation thru Open Table. Restaurant called to confirm-nice touch. Seated when arrived (on time). Outside seating night of Cleveland Cavaliers home playoff game. Area was crazy busy. Quite fun to sit outside and people-watch. Service perfect!! Tequila choices are excellent. Loved the shrimp taco, guacamole and pico.
Definitely make reservation. And enjoy!!

Food was great as well as the service and the value for the food was spot on. However, felt as if the goal was to completely rake us over the coals with the price of drinks.

Going to a show at Playhouse Square. Cleveland is about an hour plus drive for us. Food was good but not great. Will try another restaurant next time we are in town. Rice was very salty. We were about 15 min late due to traffic and they held our reservation for us which we appreciated.

First time and so glad we made the effort to eat in. We planned on coming to a concert in Cleveland and had dinner before the show. I lived in Texas around good Mexican food and I have to say I was not disappointed in the authentic meal. Did I mention that the margarita was fabulous! It was so busy but it did not change the excellent service and food we received. We will return. Great job Zocalo!

A friend and I were going to a concert at The Q and made a reservation to eat here before! Open Table App was easy and convenient to use and make a reservation. They had it and our table ready when we got there! We were seated in the bar area, atmosphere was fun, service was great and the food was pretty good!
Thanks for a great pre-concert experience.
