Mixto is a two-story natural wood and exposed brick building located on the east side of downtown Philadelphia on the historic Antique Row. We have been opened for ten consecutive years. Our vision has been to bring an array of flavors of the Cuban, Latin American and Caribbean cuisine to the Center City area.

We are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner with bar service and an extensive wine and cocktail selection.

Mixto offers outdoor dining with a South Beach Miami ambiance during the spring, summer & fall when the weather permits.

The waiter really seemed clueless, my wife and I had our three children with us, in a loud environment, for me it would make sense to come to the side of the table where the decision maker is sitting to take the order, he was nice, just not trained properly.

The hostess and the first server who brought us water appeared to be much more in tune with how to handle the table.

This is really nice place with a great menu, unfortunately certain staff members either need more training or shouldn’t be in their position.

I love the setting and the menu. My only complaint is that the food preparation could use a bit more attention. I asked for my eggs over easy and my husband asked for his over medium. We each got 1 of each request. The dish was lukewarm when it arrived, presumably because it took a while to get it to the table or because the guacamole was added straight out of the refrigerator. All in all, this is a good restaurant with the potential to be great with some attention to issues.

We were doing a mini celebration for my 30th birthday. I love the cute city atmosphere and the food is excellent. I wish the server was a little more talkative but other than that it was great!

THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE RESTAURANT - with kids or without. The food is excellent, the space is beautiful and accommodating (you aren’t on top of each other, kids can move around a bit and sound is not overwhelming even on bumpin Saturday night). The food is phenomenal, drinks to die for and the brunch is my favorite in the city!!!!!

Went for lunch with my family. Food was excellent, but a bit on the pricey side. The mojito I ordered was very good, but again on the pricey side. I would definitely recommend.

We go into the city several times for date night throughout the year and we like to try new places. This was our first visit to Mixto and the food and service were terrific. We also felt the price was reasonable for a restaurant downtown. I would recommend this place and try the “old clothing” dish it was fabulous. You will see it on the menu.

our Pisco Sour was definitely not a typical Pisco
My sea bass was far too expensive for the quality of food, over cooked @ $42. Bucks not worth the money for sure
My husband had the scallops and enjoyed them
We both agreed ok but not worth what we spent

The crew working did not really desire to be there.
the service was poor for only having a few tables to work with. The hostess initially took us the upstairs when the downstairs was empty, and tried to sit us right next to a very large and noisy celebration brunch of 20 people. I might have stayed upstairs if not seated past the entire upstairs empty and downstairs of 2 tables of 5 people. When i said no she seemed to get upset and brought us downstairs to sit next to the kitchen door. Again I asked to be at the front of the store near a window on a good early morning and empty restaurant.

The server was polite however about 15 minutes before we meet and 10 minutes to bring us a coffee
I should have left, Trust your guts folks
The food was good the people next to us also said last time they came it was a 40 minute wait to get a coffee and pastry.
Give your self plenty of extra time to be here not because you want to be just you will need it

From the time we arrived until the time we left, everyone made us feel special. Our server was Lily and she was very attentive to our needs. The manager as well as the owner stopped by the table to greet us and make sure that our dining experience was living up to our expectations. When we left the manager made it a point to thank us for coming. This type of treatment makes us want to return.

The service was good. The food was delicious but it could have been served hot... I hate luke warm food and to top if off air conditioning was not working properly. We were seated on the 2nd floor and it was unbearable! We were literally sweating! I'll go back in the Fall...

Never so disappointed. Made a reservation and when I arrived the hostess tried to seat us at a table in a heavily travelled area, I asked to be seated elsewhere in the half empty establishment and was seated at a claustrophobic table when so many open area tables were available. When in the middle of this change a waitress took notice of my concerns and took charge. Only stayed at this point because the waitresses concern for us. The meals were fair at best. Chicken extremely overcooked. The drinks were very good,however. Upon leaving I did communicate my concerns with the "manager". He continually apologized but did not really address any concerns. I guess I am really disappointed because there's so much potential here and customer service is not paramount here at all.

We had a great meal for our first time at Mixto. The only minor issue was 4 very noisy women at the bar in an otherwise reasonably quiet restaurant.

The food and the atmosphere was perfect for a date night. Everything was of quality and worth it. My only negative remark would be that our waitress was subpar. She barely came to our table to check on us throughout the night but, we saw her go to her other tables numerous times. Other staff were more attentive to us than she was. But, other than that, I loved the place and will return for sure to try other menu items.

We enjoyed ourselves at Mixto, but found the service and meal relatively underwhelming. Appetizers and shared plates were very good, entrees just ok. Our cocktails were pretty watered down, which we shared with the server when she checked in at one point. There was nothing that would fully prevent me from returning, but also nothing that would prompt me to suggest going again.

Mixto is always one of our favorite places to go. The food and drinks are amazing. However, this last time we waited 20 minutes before a server even came to our table to greet us. Not the service typical of Mixto.

Amazing food as always, my side of yucca came out like 10 minutes after my food and I ordered it boiled and it was fried. But it’s hard to be mad when the food is still the best ever, and drinks! Always my number 1 😍

Delicious food. We had a very nice and attentive server. The hostesses were not very welcoming. We were early for our reservation and they seemed annoyed. The restaurant was very empty when we arrived but full and lively by the time we left. The food was delicious and portions were generous. We did not try dessert. Great location.
