El Vez New York Ratings and Reviews
We had dinner at 9:00PM and the place was packed. A bit noisy but no big deal, we could still hear ourselves talk. Order the Classic Guacamole very good. Also had the Carnitas Tacos which were amazing, along with pozole which is really good. Just with those two I was stuffed seem like a small amount but it hits you. She ordered Rice with beans and sweet plantains, rice was good, Plantains were good as well.
We got a pitcher of Classic Margarita it was just right.
Overall great experience and the food was amazing. Will be coming back soon.
Overall, my companion and I enjoyed ourselves but her Crispy Mahi Mahi Tacos were undercooked. Our server was conscientious enough to offer a replacement but it was late into the meal. My primary gripe was that we were seated very close to other diners on either side. I think the restaurant needs to consider having fewer tables for dinner shifts. We felt right on top of our neighbors and the noise level was pretty high. I’m happy to return to El Vez but not for dates.
What a fun place the space is huge , and I think hidden I've been down in the area so many times saw the sign and we did brunch there. Waiters are fabulous friends did tacos they raved about the mahi mahi taco I did the omelet was done perfectly Margaritas are lovely I first had a bloody mary was just a little to hot for me I prefer the more horseradish than chilly pepper in a bloody mary the photo booth is a fun treat by the bar will be back soon for diner
I wanted to have my two young grandchildren for lunch prior to a movie. We were seated immediately. The children's menu is perfect. The entertainment with coloring books and crayons works and the prompt service removed all worries. The food was excellent and the service was perfect. I will be back in the future.
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.
I absolutely love this place. Best Nachos. Most amazing Kale salad. We braved the extreme elements... climbed snowbanks in the FREEZING cold in an area where there is NO parking to be found nearby at all whatsoever, just so we could eat their delicious food. This is one of those places I beg my BF to take me to and it’s always a huge hassle to get there, but it’s worth it.
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.
