Server was not professional.. our bill came up to $250 with tax and we paid total $300 with tip...making that a $50 tip. The waiter calculated 2x in front of us to make sure everything was correct and we thought 20% was sufficient. He then said it wasnt proper amount of tip and made us feel like we owed him more. We gave another $5 because we didndidnt want any arguments and that made it $55 tip equalling to 22%. I was disgusted by the waiters attutude..absolutely disgusted. We were a group of

The tacos were too spicy and when we informed the waiter he shrugged and said thats how it is prepared. Never again.

Even thoughh we had reservations they made us wait over 20 min to get our table because they gave it away. Our server got everyone order wrong which made they wait for the food be double what it supposed to be, and he had the audacity of chrgibg us for his mistakes and would not remove the extra items! Never coming back, horrible service and management. Dont waste your time there

This place has a great atmosphere. The music wasn't too loud, so casual dining was nice. Our server (we believe his name was Matt, he had an accent) was very knowledgable and wasn't overly trying to upsell constantly. The food was fantastic and tasted great. If you come with multiple people, you can get many different tacos and share between each person. All in all, great place to grab food.

Restaurant had broom out, dead plants and general dilapidated feel. Food was ok but fish and chicken taco quality not up to par as chicken was fatty and fish mushy even tho fried. Won’t be going back anytime soon anymore. Thank you

This was our first time at Playa Cabana. The food and margaritas were delicious, so we would definitely consider coming back to have those again. We were not impressed with the servers. They were inattentive from the start of the evening through to ordering a second beverage and ultimately trying to get the bill. We hope for better service at our next visit.

We enjoyed the loud but festive atmosphere! Our server was attentive and friendly even though the place was packed. Our only problem? There were 5 of us and one person received her meal a good 5 minutes before the rest of us, plus it was not hot. She could’ve sent it back but didn’t want to hold up the meal. She did tell our server but nothing could be done.

Love the food there but the prices have went up significantly (now $25 for 3 tacos). Fish tacos and churros were very yummy. It was pretty cold at our table - not sure if heat wasn’t on. The service wasn’t amazing for a weeknight as our server never came by and we had to flag another one to take our order. Our app arrived after the main but the restaurant kindly didn’t charge for it. Overall I would go back since I like the food and have had better service on other visits but the prices are high and service was not at their usual standard.

The servers and hostesses spoke too softly and all communications were not smoothly processed with not very professional manner, so I had to repeat my request at least 3 times per time. Me and my friend wanted to leave the restaurant asap.

This was my first time at the Hacienda for my birthday celebration at the Hacienda. Totally not worth for the price I paid in the term of service. First of all, your place need to have a fridge for storing guest's cake for special occasion celebration. (I found your place online that has the atmosphere i like, which is causal for friends gathering and the lighting is good too.) I never been to a restaurant that said no for storing cake, I'm glad i had cupcake for this year not ice cream cake :) just wondering if other people I see on their bday celebration at your place didn't bring their cake ? I only liked the girl who helped me with the order and put them through, which also just simple ordered literally everything of the tacos. As a group of 12, which applies 18% gratuity but I didn't get the equivalent service, not even a happy birthday. Before we left, our group wanted to do a group photo at the front of the place outside when I went inside and asked for a quick shot but got rejected from a server knows our group(pretty sure) and he didn't even try to ask other coworkers for help. I know it was a busy time on Friday but didn't even try.....=.=. photos were taken by a guest who overheard me =.= The bill was in one and had easy cupcakes. And I was asked to leave for incoming reservations whereas the other side of the floor has quite a lot of empty seats. I'm disappointed of this place overall.

It felt cramped and way too tight as a space. Cool decor. The chips, salsa, and guacamole are phenomenal. Drinks good but not great. The cauliflower dish was superb. Vegan tacos and shrimp tacos weren’t good at all. The menu is really boring and they say tapas but it’s really just hard shell and soft shell tacos with the same stuff in them. If this is the best Mexican in town, Toronto has a lot of room to grow

It was our first time at this location and had a great time. We arrived 20 minutes early for our reservation, but they were able to seat us immediately. The service was fast and the food tasted great. The chips that came with the salsa and guacamole was super crispy, by far the best I've had. We tried both crispy and soft shell tacos, but preferred the crispy tacos specially the steak tasajo. One thing I should mention is that we were seated upstairs and the floor (tiles) by the door was uneven and I tripped twice. This is a health and safety hazard and should be addressed. The lighting was quite dark in that area so it's not easily noticeable.

We specifically asked if the food was spicy. We were told that it was not. The food was inedible. Everything tasted exactly the same because the main ingredient was cayenne pepper. When the food came out there was no compensation for the fact that we could not eat some of the menu ace though we specifically re heated not spicy. We did not order Diablo. We have travelled and we eat at many restaurants, cayenne is only one spice. Rather boring.

Serving Mexican cuisine with a twist, Hacienda’s tequila options are plentiful. Ranging from Blanco to Anejo, it offers some serious quality tequilas on the menu. If you’re looking to drop some dough on a tequila shot, here’s just the thing: Clase Azuil Ultra which sells for $250 a shot.
