Service, from initial greeting to libation to dinner, was impeccable. The waiter was very knowledgable about the menu and drink offerings. The pork medallions were perfect in a pistachio mole. My husband's carne asade was done just right. There seemed to have been a mix-up in the kitchen, but the staff informed us right away, very graciously. And accommodated this... More

Had fun time with family. This is a kind of a sports bar cum restaurant and the recipes are amazing, the service is also exceptional. Ideal for a weekend dinner or lunch with friends and family

My wife and I went to Mago's in mid March. Make sure you make a reservation ahead of time, or you can wait an hour, or so especially on weekends. If you have to wait, it is still worth it. The food is that good. The room can get a bit noisy at times. The guacamole is made table side.... More

We love Mago for dinner, we are there at least 2 or more times a month. We have traveled a bit in Mexico, so we were excited to try Mago for brunch on a Sunday. We like Mexican breakfasts.

The food was great service was great too. Nice variety on the menu, portion sizes were great. The only issue was it is hard to talk it was very loud in there. It was Friday evening though, and very busy.

This was our first time eating at Mago. We decided to try it for National Margarita Day. It's a very pleasant, colorful space. The service was wonderful, even though it was very crowded. There's a nice variety on the menu. You can get guac made at your table (fun for the kids.) There are veggie choices, too. The food was... More

Great typical Mexican food, along with some different dishes that have been awesome. Can be kind of a long wait on the weekends, but they did buy the space across the hallway from them, so the extra tables might cut that wait down.

I've eaten twice at this restaurant and find it to be expensive and mediocre. I have eaten at other Mexican restaurants in the area and like them much better.

Mago is an excellent Mexican restaurant with an incredible atmosphere. We've been here many times and have never had a bad meal. From Tacos to fajitas to steak You won't be disappointed. Great location and fun atmosphere.
