I was impressed by our server. She took the time to explain the menu and check that our order was exactly right. Normally you don’t see this kind of attention at a casual restaurant. Well done! The food and drinks were tasty and reasonably priced.

The food was good. The service was amazing. Our server was very attentive and friendly. The only knock was when I arrived at the restaurant I was told I did not have a reservation even though I booked one through this website. I was told that there system was down and they were not receiving any online reservations. Luckily I was accommodated with a table although the table was not very favourable as it was located by the entrance. The table was very breezy.

The food and service was good. the only disappointment was the online booking. Apparently, my online reservation was not reflected in the hand written notes that the hostess had and we had to wait for a table to become available even though we booked online. So, I'm not sure why you take online reservations if you don't look at them.

The waitress was distant and didn't recognize that my wife and I were a gay couple even though we were holding hands. The food was good but was room temperature, don't know if that was the kitchen or the waitress, I'm going with the waitress who really didn't seem to want to be there. It's more of a pub style atmosphere so if you want sports on TV and loud conversations then this is a good place. If you're looking for a homestyle Mexican restaurant, then go somewhere else.

Service was excellent - very prompt to take our order and to bring the food, very friendly, and I LOVE that they kept filling our water regularly without asking. Food was great - my husband and I shared the tlacoyos and the huarache, both dishes we had never had before, and both superb. We had the vegetarian huaraches, one with garlic mushroom and one with veggie stew. Others in our group had burritos, quesadillas, and more "usual" Mexican food, and everyone found it very tasty. The atmosphere was the only thing that wasn't 5 star - they had good music playing, and nice decor, but a little loud and too many televisions.

It was so noisy, we couldn't hear what the server was saying and she couldn't hear what we were saying. It was a birthday celebration and 4 of us were treating the other 2 to their meal. The server didn't understand how we wanted to split the bill and after a second attempt, we decided to just let it go. They only put one basket of tortilla chips on the table, no matter the number of people -- we had to ask for a second basket because there were six of us. They actually charge $2.50 for a second basket. As Mexican style food goes, it was tasty.

Delicious food, fun atmosphere. I had Queso Fundido, which was fantastic - super gooey cheese with a good flavour. A friend order a side of guacamole and we decided to get a large for the table - it was a great size & delicious. My husband had the sautéed prawn tacos - lovely flavour. I will definitely be back.

This service sucked because it took my reservation, confirmed it and then when we arrived at the restaurant, we saw that it was closed for Thanksgiving. It is their prerogative to close on a holiday, but they should ensure that online bookings cannot be confirmed for the same day. Thank you.

The evening was fantastic. The service and food were all amazing. In fact, most of the people we brought to the restaurant, to help us celebrate, had never been there before but will return as they were so impressed. Our only disappointment was that the music, although absolutely outstanding, was too loud for us to be able to visit without yelling into each others ears.

Cool places to get a beer in Vancouver's Yaletown

What goes better with tacos other than beer? Okay, maybe tequila, but down at Patron Tacos, they’ve got you covered on both fronts. Along with a well-rounded selection of premium tequilas, they also carry a range of beers for all palettes. While they do have a couple local beers, they have a nice array of Mexican favourites from which to choose, all available by the bottle.

Enjoy sangria season at these Vancouver restaurants and bars

Enjoy sangria season at these Vancouver restaurants and bars

You can expect the unexpected when it comes to sangria at Patron. According to the menu, the unpredictable house-made punch is created “on the fly” using the freshest locally sourced ingredients. Available in both red and white varieties ($7.50 for a glass or $27.50 for a pitcher), local wines are mixed with Southern Comfort peach liquor and in-season fruit to create an intoxicating summertime beverage that’s great for sharing. The atmosphere here is energetic and boisterous with mariachi music on the speakers and sports games on the TVs. Best to visit with a large group rather than on a date.
