El Vez New York Ratings and Reviews
So delicious, I will definitely be back! Great Mexican food is hard to find in NYC, they had a nice variety of comfort food to authentic cuisine. The margs were great too! Totally affordable and a great atmosphere. Would even be a cool date spot. I can't wait to go back again.
Me and my gf got there late around 45 mins before closing, due to heavy traffic, but still got our food pretty fast, and wanted to stay a little longer to try their dessert but the kitchen was closed, food was extroidanary and deffinately will be coming back for more.
I went there for dinner and it was evident that our waiter was not happy to be there on a holiday evening. The manager made up for it and ensured that the rest of our dining experience was pleasant. Food was good- a nice local spot.
Our group of five friends enjoyed a nice, leisurely dinner at El Vez in Lower Manhattan. We started with margeritas, including the day's special margerita as suggested by the server, then shared different tacos and a couple of desserts. Margeritas were delicious. Grilled Fish Tacos and Chicken Tacos were especially delicious! Watch out for the spicy Sprimp Tacos! Tres Leches cake dessert was very tasty. Could've used twice as much chocolate dipping sauce with the Churros dessert. Service was excellent, helpful and inobtrusive. The decor is delightful and the layout is great; although the bar areas are big and noisy, they're separated from the dining area, so dining is an enjoyable experience. Reasonable prices for Manhattan. Great location by Brookfield Place.
Nice place, we booked last minute as we finished a meeting ahead of schedule. The bar was full, yet the restaurant was not as crazy, and the noise doesn’t permeate, so it was easy to have a conversation wo yelling. Service was excellent, food was good. Would definitely recommend.
We had the special of the night, and it was amazing - short ribs with 8 different sauces for build your own tacos. Between 3 of us, we couldn’t finish it, but the flavor was great! It was loud, and the bar area was fun and hopping, but the restaurant area was appropriate for families as well.
Half of the meals are served wrong. Staff brought out wrong meals for kids brunch/lunch after waiting 30 minutes. "Chef having a bad day". Had to wait 20 minutes more for kids food to arrive. Don't go there, chipotle or dos toros will realistically be more satisfying and significantly better value without delays or any other issues. Definately not a place to go with kids where you expect a limited amount of time for kids to sit at table. Management didn't even make an effort to make up for this bad experience.
Everything was great!!! We were seated promptly upon arrival about 10 min prior to our reservation. The service was friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. The nachos are as good as everyone says! My husband had the pork belly tacos and I ordered crab enchiladas and both were appealing and delicious!
