My wife and I had dinner on a Saturday night and somewhat enjoyed the experience. The restaurant was crowded and somewhat noisy. We sat at our table for several minutes with no waiter, water, or a dining set up. I finally asked for another waiter to find our server which we did. Water arrived and eventually so did the bread.
I selected a bottle of mid-priced wine which was served without much fanfare by our waiter. We ordered our dinners and refilled our own wine glasses. The food was well done and certainly the best part of our experience.
For dessert, we ordered berries and sabayon which turned out to be more creme fresh then sabayon.
We have enjoyed dinner at Edwardoes several times and this was the most mediocre experience of all of our visits.
There are too many excellent restaurants in our neighborhood to be disappointed, but because of our previous good experiences, we will try again before going on to other choices.

We had not dined here in past two years, and were happy to see the service still impeccable! My husband and I enjoyed all of the dishes we shared. We started with the Cilantro soup which was even better than we remembered. Instead of ordering entree's, we decided to order three appetizers to share, in addition to the soup course. So many different flavors all being very enjoyable. We would highly recommend dining here. I would also mention it is fine dining with use of many different flavors from the Mexican culture.

I’ve been to this restaurant several times and it never disappoints. Our reservation was honored as soon as we arrived. Our server introduced himself and brought us water. We then ordered a bottle of wine beers for the guys. We then were told of the specials. All sounded spectacular! We ordered two appetizers; the Chile relleno and octopus. Both were delish! We all ordered something different for dinner so we could taste several dishes. We ordered the LI Duck, Lamb Chops, Almond Crusted Grouper, and Steak. Holy cow! Everything was beyond great! We also had dessert and coffee. Even the coffee was tasty. Highly highly highly recommend!

Such a cute amazing place. Loved the ambience and the food is to die for. Had the best octopus appetizer and my favorite cilantro soup. It’s slightly on the spicy side but loved that flavor. Service is great too!!!

Unfortunately, Eduardo seems to have regressed. We have been going to Eduardo's for more than 10 years, but unfortunately the food has become manufactured marginality. Yes it was good, but the WOW factor has been lossed. The blue crab cakes, which we loved, we're like a frozen crab cake meatloaf. The lamb and the branzino were outstanding, but after being served frozen crab cake meatloaf, our dinner was ruined. I'm sorry to say this, but we will not be back until Eduardo takes action and returns to the excellence we all fell in love with.

This was our 3rd or 4th visit to Eduardo de San Angel. We love the ambiance and the intimate setting, the food is creative and very authentic Mexican. Mauriccio (I hope I spelled it correctly) was our waiter - friendly and very attentive. It is a great restaurant for a special occasion - we happened to celebrate our wedding anniversary this time. We will be back.

As always it was a spectacular meal. We split the cilantro soup and a crepe appetizer and were pleased with both. We love that soup and always get it. The crepe is probably the best thing I have ever had there. will definitely order it again. We both had fish prepared perfectly. My pan seared crusted sea bass was delicious and my friend loved his branzino. We look forward to returning soon.

OUTSTANDING! OUTSTANDING! OUTSTANDING! Amazing creative cuisine!
We are local to Ft. Lauderdale and have never been to Eduardo de San Angel. If I had to make a list of Pros and Cons, I would not be able to list any Cons. The server was extremely knowledgable about the food, flavors, and preparation. You must try the Cilantro soup, shrimp ceviche, carnitas, lamb chops, and duck. The food is infused with unique flavors and includes sauces like spicy guava syrup, a green tomatillo like no other, and a smoked chipotle chile sauce that completed each bite. I cannot wait to go back!

2nd visit, which was as good as the first. Fresh and well prepared food. The dishes were not your typical Mexican fare, but more traditional Mexican fine dining. Great fish dishes and the cilantro soup is delicious. Small wine list, but good selections at very reasonable prices. Very nice ambiance.

We are repeat customers of this restaurant for about 25 years due to Chef Eduardo consistently putting out dishes made with high-quality food ingredients cooked with a balance of Flavors to perfection.
We have taken many different Food Enthusiasts here to sample a variety of dishes that are prepared with mild spices imparting lots of flavor . We have never once in over two Decades been disappointed.
Our favorites that we order each time are Spicy Black Bean soup (best ever), Poblano Chili stuffed with Blue Crab and The Yellowtail crusted in Almonds, Thyme & also The Black Peppercorn crusted Snapper.
If you like Flavorful Food we urge you to experience Eduardo De Sanangel (a hidden gem by the Sea) at your earliest convenience and tell them Billy Wisdom from WisdomWorld Inc. sent you.

This was my second visit to this restaurant. I am not sure why I waited so long between visits. It was simply spectacular from beginning to end. The outside is not appealing. However, inside is quaint and lovely. The food is not your typical Mexican fare. They have deliciously unusual dishes. We ordered the tuna appetizer (yes, tuna in a Mexican restaurant). It was beyond fabulous. We then ordered their toasted almond snapper and the duck for dinner. I have no words to describe how good it was. We also shared a bottle of wine. We were never rushed and enjoyed every minute. Highly highly highly recommend.

Have been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time. The food and service was very good but the ambiance is a bit rough and dated with some harsh overhead lighting. If you don't care about the ambiance, go for just the food. For me, ambiance is very important and I can find good food at many places so I probably won't return.
