El Vez New York
Casual yet contemporary, El Vez celebrates the festive soul of Mexican and Mexican-American culture, a true south-of-the-border spirit that manifests itself in the restaurant’s attitude and atmosphere. The breathtaking space is a feast for the eyes with imaginatively designed dining areas, a large bar outfitted with a photobooth, a wrap-around landscaped patio for dining al fresco and a burrito bar for food on the go.
With deep roots in regional Mexican cooking, the menu is built around guacamoles, fundidos, ceviches, tacos, quesadillas and enchiladas made from scratch with authenticity in mind. Meanwhile, the bar offers a large selection of creative cocktails, signature margaritas and staggering selection of 150 mezcals and tequilas.
Best fish tacos ever!
Went for my son's birthday and had a fabulous time. The food as always was amazing. The corn, nachos and and guac are the best. The chicken taco's we delicious. The server was attentive and friendly. We had a great experience. I highly recommend it
Went for a girls night after a long work week and was surprised at how amazing El Vez was. I’d always heard of it while living in Philadelphia, however never got to try until moving up to NYC! Food, service, and ambiance was great - also quite affordable for the locations!
Love this place. Bar area is sooooo loud but thankfully we were seated far enough away and it did not affect our dinner.
A great time, great margs, delicious nachos, GREAT tacos
Great Restaurant!!! Have been here twice and service, food, and drinks are excellent 👍👍👍
Been to the original in Philly a few times and the NY outpost is just as good (and twice the size). I've never had a disappointing meal at El Vez.
Lunchtime on a Thursday it was full but still somehow quiet.
Mexican restaurants with excellent selection of tequilas. Food is ok.
Was there for a business luncheon, food was good however one of the signature dishes arrived with the beef pretty much raw (was ordered medium). The server & manager were both gracious and offered to prepare another dish from scratch, we declined since we were pressed for time. Without asking, they removed the cost of the particular dish from the bill. Highly professional move. Other than that, the food was very good as was the service. The one thing that stood out being it was a business lunch was the noise level - it got pretty loud to the point was having some difficulty hearing all of our conversation around the large round table. El Vez is a terrific place - highly recommend.
Very nice place with great food. My only issue is with the noise level. VERY noisy place!!
Everything was great. Great decor, great service, great food!
My daughter in Philly introduced me to the Philly location. We celebrated her birthday there. Now I am on a project at a firm on Vesey Street and brought a friend there for lunch. Love the festive unique decor. The wait staff is friendly, knowledgeable and efficient but most important my fish tacos arrived hot and crispy with delicious seasoning. Very difficult to choose from the many selections do will need to return soon.
COMIDA CON MUY POCO SABOR MEXICANO, MAL SERVICIO Y MUY LENTO
We went New Years Eve at 9 pm. Our Server was Patrick was terrific. He was smiling and came to check on us all through the night. He made great suggestions when asked, was helpful but not intrusive. The NYE mariachi band was so much fun, not only were they talented but they engaged with us and encouraged us to sing along. The drinks were well made and the mezcal martini was the hit of the evening.
The food is fresh and good, it is really American Mexican and not authentically flavored. If you like spicy ask for the habanero sauce and you will be happy! One thing about ElVez there are no surprises when it comes to food. You know exactly what you r getting.
We had so much fun and was the perfect place to party on New Years!!!
Yummy Mexican with excellent flavor. Try some of their specialty margaritas.
Best steak tacos I’ve had in a long, long time! Great food, fun neighborhood vibe!
I love El Vez..usually always live our service as well, but was not fond of server on this night:(
A very special place to enjoy outstanding Mexican cuisine.
Excellent service and good food. The margarita was good well.
This place is a little pricey as far as Mexican food goes. Portions are ok. I wish their dinner menu had more offerings or even just a burrito.
Great atmosphere and delicious dinner at El Vez. The guacamole was really fresh and yummy
The food is quite good but arrived cold at our table. The service was ok but a bit slow and off handed.
Service ranges from slow to nonexistent. I blame management. One bartender on the Thursday before Christmas?
I live for the nachos at El Vez and I am not kidding. They are the ONLY nachos in NYC worth eating IMO! don't even bother trying anywhere else!
We enjoyed the very friendly service. Our dishes were delicious and freshly prepared. The vegetables were crisp. Vivid atmosphere. We loved it!
I have tried El Vez in Philadelphia which I liked a lot so when I saw the same restaurant in NYC next to my office I booked it for a dinner. However even though the restaurants are same the food quality was lot different. NYC food tasted bland and the food itself looked awful. We tried shrimp tacos and taco for 2 which includes three different kind of meats including chicken, beef and shrimp. Overall a not so pleasant experience. Probably would not visit again.
Good food and nice atmosphere. You will not go away hungry.
Excellent service, food and margaritas!
Seated us promptly right where we requested on line even though the place was busy on a Friday night.
Service was quick without feeling rushed at all.
Good menu and drink choices without being overwhelming.
Wait staff was slow and unfriendly. Atmosphere kind of dull compared to el vez philly and food was uninspired.
Nice place to break away from the office for lunch. The guac and cauliflower tacos were delicious.
I love El Vez. It’s rare to find good Mexican food in NYC, and the service is always fantastic!
Very good financial district Mexican. Lively ambience. Somewhat boisterous happy hour crowd. Very very good Mexican food. Loved the baja fish taco. Server was attentive and accomodating. Quite excellent El Vez classic margarita.
I had not been to El Vez in a while. It was just as good as I remembered it being. The vegan Kale salad was amazing. The staff was very nice.
Great food and drinks. I was there on a sunday night and the place was still busy.
Fun restaurant with very personable wait staff. Would recommend for sure.
I had a great experience beginning with our waiter who was really patient in allowing my group to take our time to order. He made great recommendations regarding drinks and food. The cauliflower tacos are amazing and a great vegetarian option. If looking for seating, I would recommend making a reservation as this place gets packed quickly.
Food and margaritas were fantastic
