Even better than I remembered! The mezcal margs were amazing
Food was good. Waitress was very slow and not very attentive. The wait between finishing and having our table cleared was way too long. Also, getting our food packed up took too long also. The waitress was never coming back to check on us to see if everything was ok. When we ordered desserts, we asked for the check to try and expedite things. Had the waitress moved at a normal pace I wouldn’t have had to re-feed the meter. I am very displeased with this. I deducted from the Gratuity because the service was SLOW.
Amazing! The Tacos Al Carbon is worth every penny. Big portions, excellent seat and seasonings. The classic guacamole is wonderful and their smoky red salsa is as well.
Awesome as usual. Love this place. Never disappointed. Recommend reservations as the wait can be long
The chairs need an upgrade, they are a bit low. The food is great, but they need to double the tortillas in those tacos, half way through the meal I had to eat them with fork and knife. They need a wait area when the bar is full, otherwise people are standing awkwardly for their reserved table.
Other than that I don't have any other complaints, the service was great, drinks were good, and the ambiance is quite fun.
Great food. Awesome guacamole and margaritas! Atmosphere eclectic and fun. A bit noisy
ambiance is spot on. Great interior decor.
but it was really loud
and the portions were kind of small - and the food was good, but not quite worth the price good.
I had high expectations...and it did not meet them sadly.
Hosts were very nice and welcoming. Server was attentive, until maybe then end but I didn’t mind. She seemed busy. Food was outstanding! I had the shrimp tacos, very delicious. Margaritas were strong but good and tasty. Overall, I would recommend El Vez and will come back again!
This is my second time dining at El Vez. The food and service was excellent. We came with our two kids (2 & 5) and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. If you are looking for a trendy Mexican restaurant with bold margaritas and an energetic ambiance, then this is your spot.
Wonderful food and great service. I would definitely recommend.
Incredible food, great atmosphere, one of the best restaurants in the city!
Everything was amazing. I got the Carne Esada, it’s a simple dish that blew my mind. Cooked to perfection! My girl loved everything as well. It was an over fantastic time
Great food and service, our waiter was very helpful and attentive
One of my favorite restaurants in Center City, Philadelphia. Blood Orange Margaritas are #LIQUIDGOLD
Food was good, but nothing special for the price. Best complaint was the noise level. Couldn't hear my family across our intimate table for four - plus we were close to the bar area so people were practically standing on top of us. Maybe better at lunch or brunch?!?
The food and margaritas are delicious ! I love the guacamole !
We celebrated our daughters birthday, the server didn’t say or do anything related to the birthday even though it was on the reservation
The food is always great and the service is top notch!
Absolutely awesome! We are never disappointed when we visit El Vez!
Food was well presented and tasty, but to salty.
Nice restaurant for tourists to go to. Food was great. Nice decor
Good spot in need of a major make over the seating is dirty the decor and lighting old
I had a overall good experience however there was hair in my corn. I returned the corn to the kitchen with no problem but I feel like a manger or someone should have come to my table to acknowledge and apologize. We spent $250 so it would have been nice to be acknowledged. It was my birthday and they sent out a nice Cheerio plate with a candle without a request & that was appreciated. The chicken nachos were amazing!
Exciting place with energetic bar and great southwestern cuisine. Fit for larger parties and fun loving groups. Get loud- no one will hear you.
My first impression was the they were very accommodating to the changing numbers of business guests that would arrive. Not all invitees were able to attend, and others that had not been invited, were later added. Resulting in three calls to the restaurant with requested and accepted changes. This really set the stage for me.
The service was above par, the drinks were delicious and delivered quickly to the table, and the food was very good.
I would recommend this establishment to others.
El Vez never disappoints!!! Highly recommend! Make sure to make a reservation.
Always a fun time and the food is good. Make your reservation early because it books up quickly
Great margaritas and loved the atmosphere but portion sizes are small. Once seated you are rushed in and out pretty quickly - this is not about the dining experience, it's about turning the tables over as quickly as possible. We had a party of 7 and as soon as someone was finished eating, their plate was removed immediately. I was the last to finish my entree and the waitress hovered at our table and took my plate away as soon as I was done. For this reason, we won't be back for dining but maybe just drinks and guac at the bar.
Frequent customer when I'm in Philadelphia. Never disappoints. Took a friend with me who had never been and she can't stop talking about it.
Food was very good, beer was cold and selection of specialty drinks was extensive. Cool vibe, friendly staff. Brussel sprouts and ripe plantains were excellent. will definitely go back
First time dining—excellent service. Drinks, appetizers and meal were spot on! Will definitely come back. 👍🏻👍🏻
Excellent as usual. Our number one go to restaurant in the city.
I’ve lost count as to how many times I’ve dined here. Never once had a bad meal. If you’re looking for quiet dining, steer clear of happy hour. Definitely the best Mexican in the city
Been here for only drinks before, but food did not disappoint during my latest visit to El Vez. My party of three shared the taco combo, along with a couple of sides, and the portion was huge!! Left very happy and well fed.
Great as usual!
Great guacamole great red snapper! Margaritas are great too
Great food! Their blood orange margarita is the absolute best!!! You absolutely have to have the corn. If you do not have these 2 menu items during your visit you may as well have never even gone.
Thanks for the great way to celebrate our engagement. After going to Steven Singer we had a great dinner with awesome service and appreciate the team celebrating with us! Always a frequent return location in Philly
This was the third time going to El Vez. Service was stellar (as usual), and the food was amazing. The sea bass tacos are arguably the best I’ve ever eaten. We will be back again!
Wonderful evening, good food and drinks! Staff were awesome.
