  • The service, by both our server and the manager we spoke with, were really sub-par. Here's the run through:
    - We waited at least 15 minutes for our drinks (on a very very hot day)
    - One person's food didn't arrive until everyone was done eating
    - I didn't receive the right combo and when I noted this I was told I was wrong. When checking the menu, it was clear I was not wrong. To their credit they brought me additional food so that I had all I'd ordered.
    - The person who asked for steamed veggies got veggies that were clearly greasy. When she said she'd asked for no oil, the waitress said blankly: "Oh, that's not oil, it's butter." Duh. The plate came back with the same shrimp and NO veggies. Awesome.
    - When the bill came, we saw that the person who waited until the very end for her meal didn't receive any kind of discount on it. We mentioned this to the server, who brought over the manager who said that she'd give 15% off but that's all they could do. And the server had probably been intimidated by such a large group of women. (We are very friendly people and did nothing to unsettle our waitress.) It was seriously bad form to blame us for bad service.
    - To cap it off, the automatic 18% gratuity (since we were a party of 8) was added to the bill despite the fact that we were clearly dissatisfied with our meal (we mentioned to the manager that the service had been poor all night). We weren't even given the option to tip in accordance with the service.

    I would not go back here unless I had to. The food isn't good enough to have to deal with poor service and bad attitude.

  • Order: Combo - but I wasn't brought the right one

  • I wasn't aware that Milagro was a mainly Mexican restaurant, so it wasn't quite what I was expecting. The guacamole dip was excellent, and served with nice warm tortilla chips.
    The tamales were nothing incredible, but the rice they were served with was excellent. Salad was fairly average, as were the beans, but no complaints.
    Deep fried ice cream was excellent, of course.
    The servers seemed a tad awkward and maybe rushed? The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and decor though, and the quaint little patio was a pleasant place to sit.
    A tad overpriced perhaps, but otherwise not bad at all.

  • Order: Guacamole dip starter, Tamales and Enchilladas for main course, and deep fried Ice Cream for dinner.

  • We were there just tonight for dinner, holiday Monday, August 4th. We were very disappointed, the Steak over cooked, no flavor, the veggies, way over cooked, and the Milagro Special which was Enchilados, filled wtih chicken and beef, no taste, everything was blane. The only thing which was o.,k, was the salad.
    The server seemed pleasant at first, but even with the place empty we had no service. Bill was served in a wet plastic sleeve, moments before the plates were even removed...
    If your looking for this kind of food,but with much better service and awesome food head down the street(further east to Agave Grill.

  • Order: Nachos and Gualcamole, Steak Special(on the board) and the Milagro Special (from the Menu)

  • Love this place but come on... dont charge me 2 bucks for a TINY sour cream... its not unreasonable to expect some sour cream would come with a plate of $8 nachos.

    Other than that food and drinks are great here.... also love the new patio!!

  • Order: nachos, quesas and drinks

  • My wife & I frequent this place often. For the price, this is definately one of the best restaurants you will find in Ottawa. This is a Mexican restaurant, so make sure you order their Mexican dishes which is their specialty - I'm not sure about the Gringo food. Good quality food for a reasonable price and a nice cosy atmosphere - hard to beat!

  • Order: Beef Chimichanga, Milagro special enchilladas & quesedilla, iced tea & pepsi. Most entrees come with rice, refried beans & salad. Quite large portions - you won't leave hungry!

  • This is defiantely a hidden gem. Good service, nice atmosphere, great food and reasonable prices. I'd recommend sticking to the Mexican dishes since that is what this place specialises in.

  • Order: Beef Chimichanga and Mole Enchiladas.

  • Entrees were excellent.Found the Mexican rice to be dried out.The coffee served after the meal was old.The replacement cup offered wasn't much better.Wine would be better served by the 1/2 liter,instead of $7 dollars for a 1/2 glass.Better to go for lunch then dinner.

  • Order: Mole Enchilada-Milagro Enchilada special

  • Living in Westboro, we have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions and have always been served consistently good meals. The Milagro Salad is yummy and not overloaded with dressing (which is how I like it). We often go for the specials and have never been disappointed. The daily soup is always a treat and the enchilada plate is also a winner. The mojitos (sp ?) rock ! In our opinion, and we have experienced EVERY restaurant in the Westboro / Wellington Village area, you can't beat Milagro for price, consistency and service .... sure, there are better restaurants, but they are a whole lot more expensive. Our only complaint ... wine not served by the half litre.

  • Order: Milagro salad Enchilada plate special - steak with spicy sauce
