Yo Amo Tacos Ratings and Reviews
Was my bday. Didn't end up getting the table that I was told was reserved for me and my party. Waitresses too busy setting up and seating people that I almost couldn't get their attention to order a drink. Music is too loud, can't talk to people at your table. Too many flies flying around.
Absolutely never going back here. The service was horrendous, taking over an hour for our meal to come while tables who arrived after us got their food. The food was sub par and cold when it arrived. When we asked for the bill, the waitress brought it over and did not return to process payment for half an hour. Very disappointing experience, was hoping for a great taco place in the area but it seems as if you have to go downtown to get quality Mexican food. Would not recommend this place to anyone for any occassion. The bill was incredibly high for such poor quality food and service. Terrible experience!
Food is always great. Service was horrible as I had a drink fell on the table and glass broke and ended up on me! My husband order his mojito 3 times until he got one. Music was insanely loud and couldn't even have a conversation with my friends. Everyone, was competing in having their conversations heard from one table to another. I told them to lower the music a bit, considering it was 7:30pm. People want to eat great food, catch up with friends and later enjoy the loud Latin vibe.
For this reason, I wouldn't go back. Low down the music between 7-9pm. Next time, we will go somewhere we can hear each other, while we eat.
The food was disgustingly delicious! The live and was fantastic as I could sit still in my seat. Servers were extremely busy but always happy. Ever go for nachos and you always have chips with no toppings for it? That won't happen here. You actually have more toppings than chips! The enchiladas were perfect, steak fajitas were on point. I would say thou, the music is to loud for dinner time as we weren't able to communicate at the table since we couldn't hear each other. Happy Morhers day to me😞. I will just imagine the kids said wonderful things to me😎
Check out this place and make a reservation or you won't regret it.
I went there for Cinco de Mayo. I reserved a table with open table for 9:15pm however there was a miscommunication with open table and Yo amo tacos. We didn't get a seat untill 10:30pm of course we opted to wait as I have been here before and had a few people with me who were from out of town and thought the wait would be worth it. Once we sat down the server gave us the menus and said she would be back in 5 mins. We ordered right away I was surprised that the server didn't have a note pad to write down our order I was impressed. To my disappointment we didn't get out food untill 12:30pm 2 hours after we ordered. When she brought our food she got one of our guests order mixed up she said if she were to put the new order now we would have to wait for an u known amount of time since they had a full house . Given we waited 2 hours you can imagine our frustration at this point that was unacceptable maybe if she wrote down the orders there would be no confusion and the chef would have something to refer to -simple. She said "If you saw how busy it was then why did you decide to stay" the fact that we stayed says a lot we put aside the waiting because we thought we would have a good time we believed in the restaurant. Her attitude was the icing on the cake. Needless to say I won't be back.
If you are looking for a place with fast service, I would definitely not recommend this place. I've been here a couple of times and I keep going back because the food and venue is great, but their service always lacks, and it's not the servers fault but rather management who is under staffed and does nothing about it. We went on Cinco de Mayo, and being a Mexican restaurant, you would assume a hectic night. We waited 3 hours to get our food (no exaggeration it was crazy). The only thing keeping me there was the bar, so we drank while we waited. When the food came, a lot of my friends had cold tacos. When my friend told the manager about it he said "well if you want to leave, leave". I can't believe that actually happened. So all in all, the food is great the servers are so nice, but management, REALLY could use some work and organization. You would expect after 3 hours of waiting they would feel bad, but nope.
sorry but I would not recommend this restaurant to any one I know...have been there a few times and it was the same service. Sat down at 6pm it wasn't until 6:30pm before the waitress came to take our drink orders and then took another half hour to receive them one at a time. Was told we could only sit and dine for 2 hours but it took an hour to get our food order and another 50 mins to receive our food order ,by that time, it took over 2 hours . Ordered drinks and the waitress forgot all about our drink order , so when we asked for our bill it was funny how it came very quickly .... So NO I would not recommend your restaurant to any one I know.
Great food .. bartender was great she took care of us .. however, they were understaffed .. sat down at 8:30 got our mains at 10:30 .. food was excellent and authentic it's unfortunate that it took so long or else this place would be a 5/5 .. live music and drinks were great it was very reasonably priced
It was truly enjoyable . And the cost was just incredible for what we've got. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. Unfortunately there was no entertainment which I was looking forward to but there wasn't issue that night. I recommend this restaurant 100%.
we have been to this establishment before but this past Saturday was our worst experience. We were seated at a broken table, the wait staff took forever to take our order. Our drink order was not delivered until we pointed it out. We asked to sit at another table they moved us but advised that we had to be done within the hour because it was reserved for someone else. Our food was delivered to the wrong table. The music was so loud we couldn't carry on a conversation. It was very noticeable that all the tables around us were as frustrated as we are. Its to bad that the wait staff brings this place down because the food is good.
My only complain was the service from our waitress. Although she was friendly and polite she was not attentive. I had to go ask for the hot sauces at the bar because she never checked once on us after she took our orders. Someone else brought our food. We had to ask the waitress serving the table next to us for some water (jalapeños were super spicy lol). The other waitress started checking on us from then on until it was time to pay then the original waitress finally came back to our table.
The food was great, but the service was absolutely awful. Go here if you want a tasty dish, and don't mind waiting 15 minutes for everything you ask the waitress to do. Oh and if you plan on getting your bill within 30 minutes of finishing your meal, then this is not the place for you. Cool atmosphere though.
This was my second time at Yo Amo Tacos and I'm not in a hurry to go back. The guacamole is amazing! But the tacos are pretty average. The battered Mahi Mahi tacos were tasty but the short rib, the pork, and the octopus tacos were pretty bland. And both times I've been there, the tacos are soggy so the tortillas fall apart when you eat them. The restaurant has a fun and authentic feel but there are definitely way better mexican restaurants in the GTA that pack more of a punch when it come to their food. And the service was pretty slow too. Cute waitress but not very attentive.
When we arrived the gentleman just asked us to be seated but we had a reservation and when I mentioned it, it was like it didn't matter. I've been here before and the food is outstanding. They didn't have the beer I ordered. Our waitress was so nice.
