“Average food at best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Based on many excellent reviews and the crowds, we gave this restaurant a look for lunch. The menu descriptions of the small plates and the fresh juice-based cocktails enticed us to order a number of different items, but we were disappointed that both the actual food and libations fell flat in favor. The chipotle chicken and pulled pork tacos were bland. The trio of salsas was not spicy. The chicken wings were too sweet. The best items we tried were the jicama beet salad with mint and the chili-spiced corn. Great concept overall and nice location, but the restaurant currently misses the mark on implementation. Service also was average. Until the chefs kick it up a notch, we will not be back.

“Sharing platter! So good :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

45minute wait for a table so we ordered their house margaritas at the bar (really fast drinks service), a waitress noticed us waiting and offered us a table in the bar which we didn't mind as there was a great buzz in this area. Our waitress was excellent and the food was delicious, try the sharing platter - taquitos were my fave!

“Miagros...good food, stylishly presented, great drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Milagros is a cut above typical Mexican restaurants. First of the upper scale Mexican places I've seen, although more and more seem to be opening these days.

Dishes seem to use very fresh ingredients and main dishes seem made to order.

Good place for a drink r for a business meeting. Not noisy.

“Good food and atmosphere in RWC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

This is one of our frequent dinner spots. We like their burritos, and particularly enjoy sitting outside on the patio. Their Mahi Mahi tacos are fantastic, as are their pork tacos. Their burritos are large enough to split, especially if you add chips and salsa.
