Los Colibris Ratings and Reviews

Delicious. We had the corn soup, cod ceviche, stuffed pablano pepper and spicy shrimp. Everything was fresh and delicious with subtle combinations of flavours that made every bite spectacular. The classic margaritas were just right - not sweet or fake, just the right blend of tequila, cointreau and lime. There were many items on the list that are made gluten free or could be adapted and quite a few vegetarian options as well. I'll definitely be back. Yum!

The food was not good. Appetizer was far too salty, but the mains were under seasoned bland and boring. Our server was kind and removed one item from the bill as we didn't eat more than a few bites. Very disappointing on my 30ty birthday. Will never go back and will not recommend to anyone.

The restaurant has a beautiful atmosphere, and the staff was exceptional, very accommodating.
We started with the guava margarita, great flavour!
The tortilla soup was nice, a bit too much tomato base for me, also was limited on chicken, cilantro and texture, but the presentation was good.
We both had the chicken, layered on mole sauces. The balance of the chicken flavouring was extremely abundant with garlic. It was difficult to eat, not allowing the other flavours to come through. The restaurant was very gracious dealing with this, and I would try this restaurant again. Thank-you to the staff!

I'm from the states and travel to Toronto for business on occasion. I was there this past week, which happened to also be over my birthday. This was my second time to Los Colibris and again, the chef did not disappoint! I have traveled many places in Mexico and throughout Latin America and can say that without a doubt, the quality and execution of each dish is on point! From the queso fundido to the chiles en nogada - and of course tres leches for dessert, I enjoyed every bite! I have to add that the the chiles en nogada are as good, if not better, than the first time I tried this dish in Puebla, Mexico. The ambiance, staff and entire experience is memorable each time and I hope to be back soon!

We were in a hurry (like half the other people on theatre row) but the server was calm and gracious and got us served & out with time to spare. The food quality was decent but portion sizes were really small for the price, for a $30+ entree I would have expected more but that's what you get in the tourist district.

Attentive service. Friendly and fast. Food was tasty. A little pricey, but it's a nice place with a creative chef.
Salad with pineapple dressing: fruity and refreshing. Nice spin on a chef's salad.
Tilapia with rice, chayote, and Veracruz sauce: Quite tasty. Rice had a characteristic fishy flavour, which I decided that I liked.
El Jardin de Wookie: Good, but not filling enough for a main. Broccoli could have been roasted instead of steamed.
I'd love to see more vegetarian mains.
Churro was hollow and greasy. I'm surprised.
The tres lèches cake was amazing. I'd go again just for that. The sorbet takes away from the purity of the tres lèches flavour, but it's sitting on a pineapple chip so it can be enjoyed as a side rather than as part of the cake.

This is our regular dining venue when we go to the theatre or symphony. I always take some new guests with me to introduce them to the best in Toronto. They are never disappointed.
The service is outstanding but not over bearing and the food selection is full of new experiences Our server recommended some great new dishes including the salmon ceviche, outstanding enough that I was asked to share with my guests. Can`t wait to treat more friends and family soon.

Wonderful to have a new take on what Mexican cuisine can be. Interesting flavours and textures with a lot of style yet still obviously Mexican. We had all the items on the Winterlicious menu without a weak item. The service was superb, suited to a fine dining experience.

Though a wee bit noisy, our table was excellent and the service was fast, informed and professional.
The food, however, was out of this world. Appetizers though desert, they did not miss a beat, everything was simply exceptional. Try the chicken breast! Boy, was that good.

This was my second visit in 2 weeks. I was just as impressed. Very tasty food, good wine selection and helpful, attentive staff. Nice sophisticated decor, great for a business meal or special occasion. On a busy weekend your server may not always be immediately available, but that wasn't a big problem.

The service was very good, the waiter brought the food in a timely manner, the ambiance was nice, but I have to say that even though we are in winterlicious time, I think they should still offer the normal menu. I decided to go to the place because I wanted to try a specific plate I saw online and I couldn't. Winterlicious meny was good.

The servers were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The food came quickly and was delicious. One friend did not come with us as he does not like spicy food but we found that the food was not spicy so we will be going back and taking him with us!! Everything was delicious although a bit more expensive than expected. It is perfect for a special occasion.

We went to celebrate my friend's birthday and the Los Colibris was a great place to do so. The Winterlicious menu was really good - and good value. Our only complaint was that the first course (both dishes) were not heated through sufficiently.

Not trying to be mean, but the experience was average. Service was bland, unhelpful, uninterested. Server would vanish for what felt like hours at a time. Greeting and drink order took an eternity. Completely unhelpful with the menu. Going to Hamilton to try out their cool restos and find something that isn't so boring.

Great food and fairly fast.
Waited 10-15min past our reservation to be seated. Server mysteriously replaced after taking the drink order. Recieved someone elses dish but was allowed to keep it for free. By the end of the night, we could hear and feel the bass from the pseudo club/bar/taco place downstairs.
New server was good and food was good

Our group of 5 shared 5-6 dishes including appetizers and a couple of mains. All of the food was extremely tasty. We also shared a few desserts which were outstanding. We'll be back again as we're never disappointed with the service or the food.
