Review for Lucha Loco

Terrible service, great food

My first visit, and i will be back again, despite the rather unpleasant ending to an otherwise delightful night. 

Food was great; my husband and I enjoyed the atypical menu, and everything was tasty. The pork belly taco deserves special mention. 

Unfortunately, when we called for the bill, things started getting awry. I was in the washroom when my husband called for the bill. Whilst checking, he informed our waitress that we did not have the guacamole - only the salsa. She then proceeded to call anther waitress and they started discussing whether this was true, right in front of my husband. When I returned from the washroom, they were still standing next to our table in discussion. I asked what the problem was, and they said we had ordered the guacamole. I politely said "nope, we didn't." She then told me "but I remember clearing it from your table." again, I had to repeat that no, we definitely did not order the guacamole. She looked very suspicious, but eventually said that she would take it off the bill. 

It is unacceptable service to accuse customers of lying, even if this was not said outright but the message was clear. I am completely aghast that a service staff could act this way, especially so when the restaurant stresses on tips instead of the usual mandatory service charge. This experience left such a bad taste as we left.

i will be back again for the food, and hopefully the next time, will receive better service. 


I sincerely hope that the management reads this and educates their staff. The restaurant is lovely and everything else wonderful. Service should not be the
