Service was fantastic, food was delicious. We haven’t fined in here for a couple of years, however very glad we did!
Great service, great food. Vegan menu available. Will definitely return.
Hey. Always great food and service. Thanks :) :) :)
Tasty food, and good service my daughter and I really enjoyed it.
I wanted to like this place way more than I did. We ordered the taquito platter with 4 taquitos on a bed of Spanish rice. The so called "bed of Spanish rice" was so thin and burned around the edges it was hardly a bed but more of a garnish. Rice is cheap so I expected more on the plate for 18 dollars. We ordered the chips and a large order of guacamole afterwards, and the small bowl of it for 5 dollars was a little high in price, but pay 3 dollars for a handful of tortilla chips felt really high. If the food was really nice I would have considered the prices to be more reasonable, but it didn't have much flavour, which made me a little sad. The taquitos were crispy but the beef didn't have much in the way of spices and felt slightly dry, and it felt like they needed something other than the little bit of salsa and cheese on them. I really wanted to like the place, but I was a little disappointed. I want to come back and try another dish and see if this experience was just a fluke, and maybe I'm just being too critical, or too used to American prices for the same meal. The service was pleasant though, and I hope you can improve on pricing and seasoning of food.
Great food and atmosphere but obviously understaffed...long wait times, forgotten drink orders and plates not cleared. The staff were lovely but just couldn't handle the workload. The adult half size nachos is ridiculously small when compared with a kids serve which is much cheaper and has more on the plate. Considering it mostly corn chipa..noone would be happy spending $19 on a snack size plate of chips with a side of sour cream and extra $3 for guacamole that wouldn't fit the palm of your hand. If you'd like a comparison...look at what Guzman y Gomez offer for almost half that price. Great place but when clearly understaffed and scraping on servings it makes we wonder if the restaurant is struggling to remain competitive.
We felt that the meal quality and quantity has decreased since last time but the prices keep creeping up. If I owned such a cool restaurant, (you've gone to so much trouble decorating your beautiful restaurants with those large parrots on their swings) as Montezuma's I would want to see every chair with a bum on it... 6-7 days a week. Mexican food is relatively cheap compared to other mid range restaurants that offer eye fillet steak for example. For 3 adults who pay $25 each (without including one drink nor one dessert) I feel that $75 (my partner had to have an entree to bring the price down) is a rip-off considering I was still hungry when I walked out. You can't do this. You must bring back those mountain high salads that filled our plates or alternatively get the prices down for every meal and your restaurant will be full of patrons who will, by word-of-mouth get the message out that Montezuma's Capalabla is the place to be. Everyone will be raving about it. We won't be returning as we can't see value for money.
Disappointed with food and service. We were 2nd in the restaurant and it took forever for dips, mains and desert to come out. We nearly left before deserts as it was taking forever. The dips have barely anly flavour and the refried bean dip had hard bits through it. The mains looked like they had been baked in the oven and the plates were very hot, and there was added lettuce on one of the boiling hot plates. The rice was burnt and dry and overcooked to the point of it being like eating raw rice. Still very bland on the flavours. Desert was ok although it would have been better to serve the churros with cream for dipping instead of ice cream. All and all a very disappointing birthday dinner and with more and more good quality Mexican restaurants opening up, I think we will give this one a miss in the future. I wish I could've given a different review but it is what it is.....
We had a birthday dinner for my daughter turning 9 and we were a party of 14, youngest being 3 and kids age 6 to 11. Great food, friendly and accomodating service, the kids and the adults enjoyed it very much. My whole family has Montezuma’s dinner for their birthdays, it is our ritual and they are always a hit! Also, love their margaritas! Thank you guys for a lovely evening!
Excellent food as always. Be prepared that the service can be a bit slow as the place gets busy but don't have enough staff. The staff always do their best though and don't let this spoil your experience. They are fantastic and the food is worth waiting for.
