This was my second time at El Vez, I came with my mom who has never been and she loved it! Amazing food and great service. I went on a busy night and therefore our waitress wasn’t able to be as attentive as I would’ve liked but it didn’t affect my experience enough to complain. The drinks were also amazing and we were served very quickly. I will definitely be coming back!
Wonderful experience! Would travel to Philly again just to eat here!
Overall, I've always enjoyed El Vez. The food is always good and the ambiance is lively. If the review is based purely on food then it would be hands down 5 stars. I had to take off a star because I was very disappointed about the rushed service and my friend not getting a dessert with a candle on her 30th bday. I specifically stated that this dinner was for a bday when I placed the reservations and I spoke to the hostess prior to my friend arriving. The hostess rushed me off but assured me that my friend would get some churros with a candle. If you're not going to do it, then why say you will and rush me off? It's likely because they were busy and forgot but it was disappointing to my friends and I and they rushed us out immediately after we finished our food and drinks. It's not the end of the world and I would probably still come back, but I wouldn't recommend this place for special occasions.
My husband birthday. Had a wonderful time as always. Food was a amazing and we had excellent service.
Have coming once a year for several years, while attending a conference. Live everything but the volume. Almost impossible to talk to table mates.
The food tasted amazing and the drinks were well made!
One of our FAVORITE spots! Great food, margaritas, and service!! We brought our boys for they first time, and the fell in love with El Vez! If you haven't been here yet...what are you waiting for???
The blood orange margaritas were amazing The breakfast burrito was so good. Big enough to share!
Amazing! I'd give it 6 stars if I could...
Great food! Great service! Went for a birthday celebration & it was definitely a good choice!
The mahi mahi tacos are amazing!
Excellent drinks. Amazing food and the portion size will leave you beyond satisfied
El Vez has incredible food. The food is fresh and clean Mexican flavors. It is upscale Mexican. Their drinks were great and the homemade limeade was worth returning just for that limeade. The chips and salsa was also fabulous and still warm when the chips came out. 10 out of 10!
Fun place to eat and good food. Definitely a good night life feel.
Food was great, staff was friendly, for my first time there I really enjoyed my self. Even though my first drink was not to my liking, my waitress fixed it for me and recommend a better drink. So I left a happy camper!
We had the spicy crab guacamole, corn empanadas, Mahi mahi tacos and chicken tacos. Everything was so good! The pitcher of blood orange margaritas was perfect for two people. We also enjoyed the photo booth.
Loved the food. Service was good. Our only negative comment is that estaurant was too noisy.
Food and atmosphere was great. Our server was a bit too eager to get us out. Literally taking away our plates as we're putting our coats on. Would be better to wait a few minutes til we walked away. But otherwise, it was great!
Always a winner! Our waiter was more thoughtful than he needed to be because he was already excellent! I love it here every time. ❤️
Great food. Cool atmosphere. We had black bean enchiladas, shrimp tacos, chicken tacos and carnitas. The passion fruit sorbet was out of this world good. We loved it!
Fantastic! Great food, great drinks, great atmosphere and service! Would definitely come again
Waiter was pleasant. Food and drinks were awesome. Noise level is a little loud but it wouldn’t stop me from going there again. It’s one of my fav Mexican places.
I had a great time for my mother’s birthday. I especially enjoyed the photo booth.
Wonderful brunch. Full dinner menu also available. Food and cocktails were delicious. Wait staff were perfect. I had a hard time getting night before reservation (booked) so I was thrilled to go for brunch.
The food was great and the staff was friendly! The margaritas were also delicious
We love this place !! We went here on a Monday and it was so good we came back on Saturday and brought 2 other friends. Lol
Amazing food and good vibes.
First time to El Vez and it was a great experience. Drinks were amazing and the food was done perfectly. Everything was brought out in a timely manner, not too fast or too slow so we were able to enjoy ourselves with a pitcher of margaritas. Food was well seasoned too!
Always a great time and the food seems to get better each time we go.
Expensive and small portions
Poor service. Waitress had an attitude the whole night. Food was good. Drinks and atmosphere always enjoyable.
Delicious, abundant food and great service
Yes, the Taco Sampler was delicious , Margaritas refreshing .
Love the food at ElVez, especially the guacamole!
Super nice staff, attentive but not intrusive. Fabulous margaritas... great dining experience.
This was my first visit to El Vez and I was very pleased with the night out. The food was excellent, drinks were nice but the service could have been a little better. Our waitress took a drink order from the table and didn't return for more than 15 minutes. Other than that, everything was good.
service was a bit rushed but everything else was good. I got the enchilada mixtas which came with rice and beans...it was so good! The chicken enchilada's sauce was my least favorite
Definitely worth checking out! Loved every part of the meal!
The guacamole is a MUST have!! Also, great ceviche and sea bass tacos which make this restaurant more "foodie" fit than any standard Mexican restaurant.
We love this place, come often. Margaritas are awesome, but our last brunch the pitcher’s were all ice. There were 3 of us, we had to get a second pitcher just to get a full third glass. At $40 or $64 a pitcher, it’s a little steep. In Philly, 3 people having brunch and spending $150 before tip, I expect to be a little tipsy!
