La Carnita - Eglinton
Very enjoyable tacos - Cod, mushroom, crispy chicken, crispy cheese. Very flavourful and interesting combinations. Avocado & mango salad was great. Definitely going back.
Our server was not friendly at all. You can see that he hated his job. He did not even smile or ask us how we were doing. He also did not come and check up on us, he just came over just to get empty plates. We had to call him if we wanted to order more food. We were really not happy with how he served us. Because of that we gave him a small tip. He called us off for giving such a low tip. I know it was really a small tip for our huge bill, but his service was really bad. He got mad at us for giving a small tip. I do not want to go back at this restaurant because of his service. He is the worst server I had ever experienced in my life. I hope management talks to him.
-disappointed by lack of effort gone into serving our table.... at which we were celebrating a birthday.
-our order arrived in a chaotic fashion which i have never experienced before at la carnita. The random server that brought it said it is "Family Style" where everyone eats off a tray. Made no sense. There was mix and match of meat options to veg options and no explanation of what was what. More or less a free for all that was poorly executed and dominated the table.
-food was lack luster which was also soooo surprising coming from LC because it is more times than not a stellar resto and food option...one of the best Mexican places in the city.
-no attention was given to our table until we waved down an associate, to ask for the bill
-not once were we asked if we wanted more beverages, drinks, our water wasn't filled, no one asked if we wanted desert, how our food was (it was bad, and cold and tortillas were all broken making it impossible to eat a TACO. )
- no napkins was inconvenient and also annoying when trying to clean up after eating tacos that were mush and falling apart.
Had been looking forward to trying this restaurant for months. The service was just ok - and there was no excuses as the restaurant was not busy. The food was also just ok.. half of our tacos were not even edible and after a long time to wait for cutlery we gave up. They were great to reduce our bill to make up for it.
Really great food. My only criticism would be it'd be great if there were a few more vegan options. But the ones they have are awesome.
Purchased a taco to bring home to a family member and while we went to the washroom the servers cleared the table and could not give us back this taco. They did refund us our money, however, my family member was really disappointed when we came home empty handed. Service was very slow too but servers were very nice. Food and sangria was excellent.
Food was great and the service was fantastic! Great atmosphere too!!
Went to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and I’m so glad we trued the spicy chorizo tacos! It is a must!
Our server was excellent. She took care of a mix up with our order so efficiently. She was very personable and attentive. The food was superb and keeps us coming back for more.
It’s was perfect in everything and specially because of the server Kephra perfect and she really knows how to treat customers.
The customer service is always an issue there! The food is great but the staff have so much attitude and act very rude when you want to reserve a table and even when they are not busy the customer service is not that great compare to other locations.
Had a great time! Went for my birthday with a party of 10! Would recommend! :)
Decent service and pretty good food. Sat on the patio and the tables were quite dirty. I never saw a waiter do a wipe down even after guests left.
Absolutely TERRIBLE service. Such unkind and unprofessional service. ALL staff was disgustingly rude and aggressive. Would highly discourage all patrons from visiting. AWFUL
Xclnt as always...!!!
Outstanding service and food waitress was super nice and food came right away ❤️ Best carnitas I ever had
We ordered an app at the beginning and our tacos were served first and not all at once either. Our app basically came out at the end and we had to remind them about it. The food was average but the server we had was awesome!
Was good although the waitress was a feminazi who refused to speak to my boyfriend even when he called her over to the table. Food was overall good along with the atmosphere. Great date night
We had a big party with a toddler, server was very patient and accommodating
La Carnita has been enjoyed by every guest I have taken there. Delicious. If you are looking for cheap tacos, go elsewhere. If you are looking for many unique flavors of tacos with top quality ingredients, go here.
I found the usual quality to have gone down. The guac arrived and the colour was not green as such it did not look or taste fresh.
Terrible service, slow, inattentive server, incorrect drink order, then forgot the second half of our food order. Once the second plate of tacos came out they were cold and soggy. Went on a Wednesday and wasn’t even a busy night. Have been to other La Carnita locations and it’s been much better but will not be going back to this one. Brutal!!
Amazing food, drinks & service!!!
Waiters weren’t very attentive and left the table multiple times before everyone was finished ordering. Food was really great though.
Honestly I love the food here but the service is always horrible. The servers seem checked out and not down to give a value experience. Value being: genuine, interested, attentive, responsive, knowledgable, and respectful. This location needs a management overhaul as it seems 90% of the staff has this mindset. We have had one good server within my last 5 visits. Yet I keep going back for the food. Soon it will reach a point where the food isn't even worth it.
Decent food. Very loud and could not hear the conversation at the table. Not great for a dinner visiting with friends. It was early and we asked to have the music turned down but the manager refused. Food was a bit cold. Won’t go back.
It took the order 1 hr to be served; the orders for 4 out of 8 were mixed; and the last person in the group to receive her food was after the rest finished. While we were not charged for one meal, the idea was not to save $20 but to have a decent timing and orders to be taken properly. I would not recommend this place for these reasons. Food was ok but the server did not advice on the level of spice each dish was, while we were inquiring about it clearly and loudly.
I’ve been here many times but left today without ever ordering because I was sat and not a single server came to my table to offer water or take our order for 20 mins. We tried flagging people down but to no avail. It wasn’t even busy on their patio. Very disappointing level of service as I have been here many times but probably won’t be back for a while now. The other la carnitas have better service downtown.
The food was great. It is quite noisy, and the service was a bit slow, but the delicious food compensated for it. Their Fixed Price three course lunch menu is good value for the money, and I loved the guacamole and chips, tacos and churros!
Great food, but takes too long for food to come out while restaurant wasn’t that busy.
All of our taco orders were barely warm when they arrived at our table. Waitress forgot our drinks for almost 30 mins.
Great tacos, beef in the asada was a bit tough but great overall
Service was friendly, but could have been more attentive. Had to ask several times for napkins and water. Food could have been warmer when it arrived.
Had a night out with colleagues and decided to hit up La Carnita.
As expected, food and drinks were delish. It definitely has a buzz.... don’t go for quiet conversations as the acoustics are terrible. Servers, while nice, were far from efficient and we had to grab her attention for everything - from ordering first round of drinks, to meals, to the bill. As long as you aren’t ok with that, then La Carnita is a fun place to be.
If you want tacos that go beyond meat cheese and salsa, look no further. The “in cod we trust” tacos may have been the best fish tacos I’ve ever eaten. Definitely would return.
Celebrated Mother’s Day, great food as always, ambience was really cool, high chair was provided for two year old godson, would definitely come back.
Food was fantastic, and the wait staff pleasant. However, the food was very slow to come due to being understaffed. The manager, unprompted, comp'ed half of the meal. The good food and proactive approach to customer service will have me coming back time and again.
This would be a nice place for lunch or drinks after work with friends but not for dinner out
We went for Cinco de Mayo and the restaurant wasn’t doing anything special for the day. Overall good though!
