This is an elegant place, for someone with discriminating tastes. My cocktail was the one with hibiscus juice, and it had a nice spicy rim salt. We had the veal in mole sauce, and the cazuelo con mariscos (in coconut broth). They were both very...More

Service was poor, didn't know much about the menu. There were four of us, but not everyone ordered 3 courses- they literally brought my friends steak at the same time as our dessert! Couple interesting dishes, but my wife got sick from the "seafood" stuffed...More

My family of four dined at Xocolat for a special occasion on a Saturday night. We were promptly greeted at the door, and were escorted into a beautiful and inviting restaurant. It was a cold night, and we were given our own individual coat stand...More

Finally there is an exquisite Mexican fine dining experience in Canada! This was a wonderful meal. The staff was friendly and prompt. The host was on the quiet side he needs some work that's for sure. This is all about flavour and presentation. If your...More

Wow! Xocolat almost lives up to its promise to be posh. The decor is gorgeous. The live music is nice (although too loud for our taste). Chairs and seating very comfortable. The food was pretty interesting and delicious: little amuse-bouches of cornmeal pastry and a...More

Don’t go to this place. My wife, son and I went to try Xocolat after seeing an ad on “Where” magazine. We called in advance to know if they had any policy on babies and they said “no”. When we got there they didn’t open...More
