La Carnita-John St
Located in the financial district is La Carnita’s South Central location in a beautiful two-story heritage building. The upstairs makes for an engaging venue, seating 55 guests with its own bar.
Always fast, fresh and the perfect portion. Just wish u could split bills
We booked for a Wednesday night at 10pm didn’t know we were gonna be kicked out at 11pm- we weren’t told. If we knew, we would have ordered less food. We couldn’t even enjoy the night and we stuffed ourselves fast but we left food uneaten. It was our first time there. I don’t recommend you go that late, as they definitely dont care for business at that location- ( our bill was over 120$, we were consuming, they just stopped us from doing so) too bad. And it was busy but they were billing everyone out to close the door. They played a high core music loud to make us leave... i am still mad about that. It was a night intended to reconnect with a friend and we had too hurry up to eat and drink our margaritas.
Great Mexican food with some very tasty tacos. Our server was very kind and worked hard to make sure our experience was good. Would recommend to anyone looking for casual Mexican dining.
Really enjoy the overall ambience of the restaurant, we all had a great time, will be back soon.
What a joke. The service is atrocious. We dined for approximately 1.5 hours. The bartender/server didn’t greet the table, look absolutely miserable. Asked us “what do you want?” as if we were wasting his time, took our order and the next time he came back to our table was an hour into the meal. Never quality checked the food, there was no way of ordering another drink because not only did our server not come back to the table to offer us another round, other servers flat out refuse to take an order from a table that’s not in their section. One of my tacos came out at the 1hr 15 minute mark after I had asked for it 4 times. While I’m asking for my missing taco, the server is clearing away my plate, cutlery, hot sauce, etc.
The server did kindly take the long lost taco off of the bill which was appreciated but definitely did not redeem the experience. I’ve been here several times throughout the month of September and it seems that every time I come the customer service gets worse and worse. The food is fantastic but that’s about it. Even my margarita was underwhelming. Even though it’s an affordable price point, I’d rather go somewhere else and spend my money.
Food is great as always. They won't split bills for groups over 6 as it's their "policy", though I have gone there with larger groups in the past and have done it. Most groups need to split bills so this should not be an issue l, especially when requested up front.
Hi Melissa, We deeply apologize for the inconvenience of not being able to split your bill. It takes approximately 1.5 mins to complete payment for each person. This policy was put in place to cut down on the time it takes a server to finish payments, and increase the amount of time they can spend with our guests. There are sometimes when we are not busy that a server may break this rule for a guest, however we do try to enforce it for larger groups. Again we apologize.
Love this place !
Food is good but restaurant is overpriced, the bal
Sweet lunch spot to go for a sit down or a quick meal
Delicious Mexican Flare. With a fun atmosphere. I highly recommend!
Wonderful food, fun menu, great service , funky atmosphere. What's not to love.
Food was amazing.
The ambience is great...the food was fast and delicious and a good portion size for the price
the tacos are amazing!
Please turn down the music at lunch sittings.
Service was anemic and the music was ridiculously loud. Food was great.
Food was great but, service was non-existent. I'm not sure if I'd be willing to go back.
Overall great place! Tacos are made with attention to flavour and detail and it shows the kitchen care about the food they serve.
Music was a bit loud, but a minor issue that didn’t take away from the overall experience too much
:) great tacos!
Meeting up with friends to talk and laugh over tacos? This is your place. On a first date or meeting with a client? I recommend going elsewhere as the music volume would ensure your neighbouring tables can hear everything you're shouting at each other.
Service was slow. Drinks were slow. Food was alright. Not sure I would go back.
Issue with the food . The server was argumentative and condescending .
The food here is amazing! Absolutely delicious!
Good quality and worth the money.
However, the service was a little poor and slow. It was hard to get some one's attention for assistance. We waited a while for the server to come take our order, then waited a while for them to come back and ask where the food was and then waited again for the food to come out.
The music was extremely loud for a lunch time as well. Good music but way too loud for the hour.
Excellent food. Would definitely go there again. Gets quite busy after 12pm. Best time to go is at 11:30am.
The food was fantastic! Loved the atmosphere! Would highly recommend this place and would return again.
The service was great. I highly recommend the nachos.
Tried the carnita and spicy mushroom taco - both were great. Good sangria! Also chips with trio dips - guac was OK but have had better. Bathroom was a bit nasty. We've been before and loved it as well, but can only give 4 stars based on bathroom :)
Amazing ! Best Mexican in Toronto hands down.. get the shrimp, steak and fried chicken taco! Churros are amazing.. as well as the rose margaritas
Everything was excellent, unfortunately from London and can’t enjoy it more often.
Awesome food, best tacos I had in a long while and those churros... amazing.
Great food, restaurant was a bit too loud to have a conversation.
Wonderful selections for vegans to eat at and non vegans!
I liked this place just thought we got unlucky with our server. He seemed over it. Otherwise it was good
Best meal and drinks that I’ve had in Toronto. 10/10
Absolutely loved the chips and corn! Can’t wait to go again!!!!
We enjoyed the ambiance of this place. Very casual, easy-going and the noise level is a bit loud but not too loud. Food was fantastic and service was great.
Always a great place for lunch or dinner. Food is delicious and service is outstanding. Don’t forget to buy the kitchen a beer!
The food was atrocious.
Atmosphere was great, food was good, service was mediocre from our server- she seemed annoyed with her job. Also arrived and told the hostess I had an open table reservation- she sat us, and then as we were finishing our meals I had gotten a notification that we “missed our reservation”. I mentioned it to the hostess and she just shrugged her shoulders and said she erased it?
Well, the food is great, but what is with the gangster rap dropping N bombs at a volume so loud you can't even hear yourself think? This was at 4pm in the afternoon, with the music blaring such positive lyrics about some guy ing another guys * then shooting him with his gun, with a bunch of N bombs to go around - is this supposed to be an enriching cultural experience? The music (if you could call it that) became worse and worse. Could not wait to leave.
