Ratings & Reviews - Milagro Cantina on Mercer

Food was authentic and good, no complaints. The service, though, was lacking. We had three different wait staff at our table throughout our meal. Waitress 1 was good, but about halfway through the meal she stopped coming by (and was waiting on other tables outside) and the other two stepped in. When we finished we were in the mood for more drinks and ordered them, but waitress 2 never brought them. Waiter came by later and asked if we were ready for our check or wanted something more. By that point we were done with them and left. Place was mostly empty, not sure why there was such a lapse in service.

Came for dinner after seeing a show, and the restaurant was not very busy. It did take a little while before anyone came to seat us (did have a reservation), and once seated our waiter was very attentive. He took us through the menu and made recommendations for my friend since she could not have anything spicy. Our meal arrived before our starter, so that was a bit disappointing. Then my friend ordered a different taco and that took a solid 15-20 minutes to arrive (for a plain beef taco). The restaurant starter to get busier, and we saw our waiter less. By the time we were done, it took us close to 30 minutes to get someone's attention to get our bill so we could leave. Asked a couple of servers but no action. There were a lot of people standing around but no one actually helping us. The food and drinks were good, the restaurant is nice, but the service needed work from start to finish - inconsistent.

Milagro always has amazing good and drinks! The atmosphere is relaxed and the service is excellent! If you haven’t tried Milagro and are thinking of Mexican - go for it, you won’t regret the decision.

I have to say, I won't go back. The food was fine - not amazing, but fine (and certainly not as good as I remember in past). The service was terrible. We went through our entire meal with empty water glasses on our table and no water. It took so long to get drinks and place our food order that we ultimately had to wolf our food down to leave for a play. I don't know if they were just horribly understaffed or the staff is just poor, but there are too many good restaurants in Toronto to go back there.

This was my second time dining in Milagro and it was a great experience! Food is amazing, all staff is polite and friendly. Staff makes you feel welcome there, unlike other restaurants where they rush you out the door. I will recommend Milagro to my friends

There is a real art to a great ceviche. First of all, you have to choose seafood that is firm enough to stand up against all that liquid. Then, you must “cook” it with enough citrus that it penetrates the meat and also delivers a dynamic finish. One of the best places to get real ceviches is Milagro Cantino. Arturo and brother Andrés Anhalt hail from Mexico City and know what it takes to make a stellar ceviche.
