Poquitos - Capitol Hill does not currently offer reservations Friday and Saturday evenings after 6:30pm.
Poquitos Chef Manny Arce offers authentic presentations of traditional Mexican cuisine while utilizing the regional benefit of high quality Northwest farms and purveyors. Over 14,000 Talavera tiles from Puebla, Mexico and a variety of Mexican artisan design pieces combine to create an environment that is unique not only to Capitol Hill but Seattle as well. Our outdoor covered patio, with radiant heat, two fireplaces, and 12-seat bar is enjoyable whether for a Sunday lunch or a Friday night cocktail.

    Had reservations for 3, but they put us at a table for 2, already tight for 2, but then they added another setting. Had to ask to be moved, as there were TONS of empty proper-sized tables available. Servers were attentive as the place got busy. The food is ok, but small portions for the price for both food and cocktails. Every menu item is spicy. I know it's Mexican food, but my beet salad was spicy! There was no ingredient listed in the description that should have made a SALAD spicy. The dressing was apple cider vinaigrette. This is the 4th time I've been here, every time a little worse than the last. I won't be back.

    This is our second time visiting this restaurant. We walked into this place a year ago when visiting from California and before our current trip we were looking forward to eating their amazing food again. I made a reservation for 6:00pm Saturday evening. We waited no longer than 5 minutes this time around. Had the ceviche, esquite, carne asada and curros for dessert. The food was as amazing as the first time. The carne asada was so nice and tender, delicious and it melted in your mouth. Try it, thank me later.

    Wonderful meal, gorgeous restaurant, ate in the bar area which would have been perfect had the music not been so extremely loud. I will definitely go back, but I won’t eat in the bar area again.

    Service was too fast, as if they just wanted to turn the table. We had two drinks each, appetizer’s and entrees all in 30 minutes. We were seated at 5:45 and was out by 6:45. Food was ok, but came out in 5 mins while still having first course. Waiter brought the bill and offered boxes for leftovers while we were still eating. Not enjoyable.

    The large roll up windows were open on this hot and dangerously smoky evening making the dining room very uncomfortable. I enjoyed my “Ranch Hand” cocktail. I had the Pollo Verde which came from the kind piled high onto a too small plate. Imagining that this dish might emulate the very tasty grilled chicken from the El Pollo Loco fast food chain I was very disappointed by the rather bland chicken accompanied by fermented cabbage salad. Everyone else at the table seemed to enjoy their orders however. The churros continue to be fabulous.

    We were greeted promptly upon arrival and were seated for our reservation immediately. While we were a little neglected throughout the meal, the server was very kind and accommodating while at our table. Food was great, as was the ambiance. Great deals for half-off tequila pours as well! We’ll be back.

    Going to Poquitos was based on proximity and availability, but it turned out to be a very good experience. Several times after our dinner there, one or other of us commented on how much we enjoyed the experience. The food and drinks were great and the service was excellent. When next in Seattle we wouldn't hesitate to go back.

    Cool venue with lively ambience. Food carelessly prepared and indifferently served. The drinks we ordered were stingy in size and expensive. Check it out: their glasses are small and filled to brim with ice.
