As always food was delish. Love the ambiance of ElVez. See you again soon!
This was my first time at El Vez and the service, hospitality and food was excellent. I don't remember our servers name but he was amazing. I will definitely recommend this restaurant to others. We will definitely be back. Awesome everything!!
We love El Vez. They never disappoint there. I have and will continue to recommend!!
Brought dessert for my husband for his birthday! Food and margaritas were delicious!
Excellent atmosphere, the servers were attentive and pleasant. The food was amazing and the drinks were very good. Will definitely be back soon!
Waitress was very pre occupied
Love the velvet round booths! Crab salsa and short rib enchiladas were amazing!
Had an amazing night ! Great food, great service
We visit quite often and El Vez never disappoints! Delicious cocktails and awesome food!
It was an average meal, server was good
We throughly enjoyed our dinner at El Vez. All ingredients were fresh and the dishes well prepared. The Mexican chopped salad was crunchy and tasty. The shrimp enchiladas had a wonderful tomatillo / cilantro sauce that was flavorful and light, unlike most enchiladas that are somewhat heavy. The banana dessert enchiladas were a treat that 4 of us shared which was just enough for each of us. Service was attentive and available. The only negative was the noise level which made it hard to have a conversation.
Food was fantastic, especially the cauliflower tacos and corn! Staff was awesome.
Food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Definetly recommend the Tacos al Carbon.
The food here is fine -- no amazing, but solid. The drinks are good. Service is really excellent -- they have a great staff. The atmosphere is lively and fun, but LOUD. Not a good place to bring anyone who is hard of hearing. NOT romantic. Good for groups in the sense that they can seat groups, but you won't be able to hear someone across the table. But the plus of the noise is that it makes it good for kids!!! No one can hear them complaining.
Food was delicious. Atmosphere was nice. Our beverages (alcoholic) took quite a long time to arrive to our table every time.
The best Mexican food and Perfecto margaritas!
I've been to El Vez two times. I am very impressed with the food, as well as the service. The only negative is that like many other popular restaurants, the noise level can often times make it difficult to converse at a normal level.
Great food and great service in a lively atmosphere. The noise level is high but the we were fine with it. Our server was excellent and we enjoyed the experience. Lots of energy so if your looking for a quiet romantic dinner this probably isn't the place for you. If you are looking for a fun experience with great food and attentive service at a reasonable price then go for it.
Go for the tacos for two!
I’ve eaten here on numerous occasions and have only ever enjoyed myself. Never had a bad meal - and I hated guacamole before I stopped here. Game changer.
Very good service, easygoing but attentive style. Excellent food. Guacamole is extraordinary. A must-go whenever we're in the neighborhood.
Food is amazing. I just wish it wasn’t so loud during the evenings and nights. I’ve been there for lunch and the noise level was bearable.
First time at El Vez. Everything was great. I will return.
We ate at El Vez before going to see the play, Rent. The guacamole was fabulous. We also got the nachos with black beans and they were delicious. Two of us got the Mahi Mahi tacos which according to my husband were a little too spicy for his pallet, but I thought they were perfect. The two others in our party got the tacos for two with steak and shrimp. They enjoyed them immensely. Everything was perfect and served hot. The waitress and other staff were attentive and our water glasses were kept full. Dessert and drinks were very good.
Had a truly amazing dinner at El Vez. Delicious appetizers, main course and drinks. Highly recommend.
Good place to eat, food was very good and the service was attentive but not over the top (just right).
Every time I’m in Philly I usually grab a bite at El Vez. I absolutely love the vibe of this place and the food is fantastic.
The food was delicious! I made reservations and didn't have to wait at all when I walked in. I wish we had a more personable server. He was very stand offish and barely came back to our table to check on us. But overall it was great!
One of my favorite places. Food was amazing as usual and the service was very attentive.
Best place to get tacos one of the best restaurants in the city 500 stars
Nice casual dinner place. We had a 1 year old and the staff was very nice and helpful.
Love this place and been a million times. Food was horrible today from start to finish. Wasn’t just my meal either. Complaints from my guest too.
The waitress was very attentive, friendly and anticipated our needs. The guacamole was very tasty and mahimahi tacos not too filling. There’s a topless woman drawn on the cover of the menu, which doesn’t fit a business lunch so much, but we ignored that. Parking ample and nearby.
Good for lunch. Tasty salad. Ok vodka drink. Busy place
The food was good and fresh but the noise level was so extreme that it wasn't conducive to a conversation or a relaxing dinner. The drinks were good, I tried a few but much too much ice in glass it only allowed a few sips of the margaritas.
Good for friends if the don’t need to hear each other. Ridiculously loud, tho no one was screaming near us. Are there undercover microphones to amplify the sound. Food and service were very good, but diners need to communicate by text message.
The food and service were outstanding and the decor was warm and inviting. My one complaint was getting to the restroom. There's insufficient lightiing on the steps and in the restroom.
My food was amazing for the most part. Guacamole was on point. The lunch special was a large portion and great price. However my moms salad was very underwhelming. The chicken came out on top as a large piece not sliced and the salad was lacking on the ingredients. A few pieces of corn and a few beans that she had to search for.
Outstanding guacamole, very good tacos, brussel sprouts a bit heavy with sauce
