NICEI rated the noise level as quite because I had a early reservation it was for 6-6:15 as we were going to catch a early movie. Food was fantastic and had many options. The guacamole is FANTASTIC as you build your own. They give you a card and you tell them what 2 items you want in it and if you want more they will charge $1 for everything over 2. Menu was nice, we took the taco special which was $29 pp and filled us well. Still had room for dessert which was ok. Had a chocolate dessert, forget the name but not what I thought it would be at all. The only thing that Xochitl (so-cheet) needs to do is step up dessert in my opinion. Fantastic food, great spot as afterwards you can hit south street, historic head house square & Penn's Landing5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingI Love Mexican Food and have eaten at almost every Mexican Restaurant in Philly and New York, Xochitl has made my top favorite list.

Very friendly, knowledgeable, and checked in just the right amount.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeWe were a party of eight and each one of us enjoyed Xochitl. We started off with great drinks at the bar, followed by "build your own guacamole," and fished with our main dishes which were delicious I had the spicy beef brisket tacos.... Yum!
The service was even better! We really fealt like they wanted us there! Being a larger party we were there for a while and they could not have been more accommodating. We will definately be back!
Thanks Yochitl!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMI was almost licking the plate.....I found the menu interesting enough to make a reservation. Wow, what a great place. I was almost licking the plate. I love spicey and they delivered. Great service and the mojitos were different.....order one and you will be a fan. I am so coming back!!!!!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-Cinco de Mayo Delight!Since our anniversary is May 5 (Cinco de Mayo) which fell on Sunday this year, we were in search of a Mexican-themed restaurant to celebrate on Saturday night, May 4. We were lucky to find Xochitl. The food was excellent and the service was superb starting with the "choose your own ingredients gracamole" to the dense chocolate dessert. Also, coffee is served in a french press which makes 2.5 cups -- plenty for two people. Great ambience restaurant on Headhouse Square. I highly recommend Xochitl and we will definitely go back.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe design your own guacamoleThe design your own guacamole and molcajete for two features on the menu are outstanding and the bartender makes a mean mojito too! It doesn't take too many people for it to get really loud really fast, so it's probably not a place to go if you are looking for a quiet conversation. Overall, really enjoyed our experience.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMthe Molacajate dinner forthe Molacajate dinner for 2 is amazing! Pair it with the pepito margarita!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AM1st timeFood and service were great! Especially loved the "build your own" guacamole and the tequila flight options. Husband loved the brisket tacos. My only complaint would be that my house margarita was mostly ice and I couldn't really taste the tequila. Would definitely go back to try something different, though! Worth a try!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI generally don't like MexicanI generally don't like Mexican food but had a friend from Texas in who loves Mexican food. We were very impressed. Wait staff was knowledgable and attentive3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMwas there with group of friendswas there with group of friends who travelled to Philadelphia for the weekend. Had drinks at the bar, then dinner in dining room. Margaritas were fantastic. Dinner was delicious. Everyone was so glad I chose Xochitl. We all enjoyed ourselves!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLove, love, loveWe arrived early to our dinner reservations and grabbed drinks and guac at the bar, what a start to a delicious evening! Dinner was so tasty, an interesting and upscale take on Mexican cuisine. If I lived around the corner, I'd probably dine here every other week. If you need to try something other than Lolita's, definitely add this to your list. It's not a BYOB but the drinks can be reasonable, especially if you make happy hour.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMHighest praise for best Mex!My girlfriend and I have eaten in many fine restaurants from New York to Maui. Having checked out a classic Mexican in NYC years ago with high praise from the Zagats ranks (Rosa Mexicano), we always wondered if we could ever find something outside of the city to compare.
We don't have to worry about that anymore!
Xochitl (pronounced "So-cheet") is all that and more. From an outstanding wine and tequila menu (the sangria is highly recommended!) to staples such as tacos, it's all there. But we went for the gusto this night and ordered customized guacamole and I opted for the half Pollo Fito (which takes three days of brining and preparation.) It was so wonderful, so tasty, right to the bone. If you love superb Mexican, check this place out!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMlovely dish available forlovely dish available for vegan/vegatarian with staff very amenable to making accomodations on dishes.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMReally great cocktails. LoveReally great cocktails. Love their guacamole with the custom order sheet of mix-ins and toppings!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe "create your own guacamole"The "create your own guacamole" is an inspired idea. Their beef short ribs were tasty, but a little fatty. I would definitely recommend this place to friends.1/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
