Great service, energetic environment. A bit pricey-but good food!
Wonderful! Never a disappointment going there! Plan on going again.
Great pre-theater Sweet 16 celebration dinner! MAHI MAHI tacos are awesome!
Lots of gluten free options. Corn and plantains sides were delicious
Have been coming here for years but today was ‘off’ for food and service. Disappointing.
Amazing food! Unfortunately, we waited 40 minutes pat our reservation because they forgot about us. However, they made it up to us with guacamole on the house, excellent food, and a wonderful waitress. Still my favorite restaurant in Philly!
N/A. Everything was amazing.
Delicious guacamole and fish tacos.
Everything was wonderful! Service, food, and atmosphere.
great time great food cant wait to return. the food was great and the service was too
Wonderful food and great drinks
The noise level was extremely high- would not recommend this place for a date.
We were seated before our reservation. Service was good and food delicious.
Get the guacamole & a blood orange margarita! It's a loud place so avoid if you need to converse.
Amazing!!!! Great food great service!
Place was so crowded since it was cinque de mayo, they had a dj so very loud music, food was decent and service was good, fun place for the Mexican holiday
Great food. I have been here a few times and it never disappoints. The guacamole sampler is the best.
Went here the day before cinco de mayo to not deal with the crowd. I definitely enjoyed the experience at El Vez for the 1st time. It gets very rowdy for lunch, but the service here is quick and to the point. Didn't come across any problems whatsoever. Luckily, we had a banquet seat just for us 2 people because we made reservations. Our waiter Kelsey seemed genuine and caring. Also, the food was a banger for sure. The El Vez margarita was well-prepared as well as the Macho Nachos. I will bring a bigger group with me next time we stop to visit.
Had a reservation but got there early and found bar seats. Very attentive bartender. Guacamole and salsa were delicious. My wife ordered enchiladas and I had fish tacos. Both were also delicious. Also discovered a new mezcal from Casamigos. Awesome. Highly recommended.
Awesome as always. Love coming here! Crazy good food and friendly quick service
Love it. It’s always amazing!!!
Great food and hip atmosphere. We really enjoyed the empanadas and the queso fundido de hongos. Service was attentive and friendly.
Decor, service, flavor, and presentation are all very good. The noise level, however, is intimidating. "Energetic" is misleading. One must shout to be heard. When ambient conversation sound level lowered, they boosted volume on the throbbing background music
The food was excellent. Of course I wanted the guacamole but for the one that the amount for an order was way to much. They have a side of guac and salsa and chips that was perfect. I had the Assorted Tacos platter. The best!! Can't wait to go back. Great Perfecto margaritas by the bartender.
I checked in for my reservation at 8 at 7:35 since we got there early. The hostess said she had my number and would text me when the table was ready. At 8:15 we checked in again to see if we should get another drink at the bar and the hostess checked, realized she never called our table and seated us at a very small table by the bar. When we asked for a nicer travel that was open she let us know we would need to put our name back on the list and wait. Our table was by the bar, extremely Loud and our server never checked on us. We had to catch the manager walking table to table to ask for more drinks.
Celebrating upcoming upenn senior women's basketball teams graduation
Thought the menu would have more full dinner options and not just tacos and enchiladas
Was there with 4 athletes who left hungry as taco portions were small
Food was outstanding. Waitress was excellent. Highly recommend. Next time we are in Philadelphia will certainly come back.
Overall enjoyed the restaurant. Wait to be seated was a bit longer then one would like, otherwise good food and drinks. I will come back again.
Food was excellent! Will definitely go again. Been trying to get there for months and finally made a reservation far enough ahead of time to get in! I'm sure you can just walk in and put your name on the list, but since we aren't in the city for too long when we go we don't want to wait for a table. We were there early and they had our table ready. Pleasant and filling experience. The guacamole was my favorite.
Food was ok....our waitress was amazing! She was attentive and very sweet
Took my fiance here for her birthday the last three years and every time we go it gets better! I highly recommend!
Great neighborhood upbeat restaurant.Great food nice menu
Our table was very close to the center bar, and people kept bumping into our drinks. It was also extremely loud and difficult to hold conversation without shouting.
Overall decent food, several creative and tasty guacamole variations, very simple but tasty carnitas tacos, etc. Several proprietary margaritas and large tequila menu, but overall drink menu is overpriced. Very very noisy, so not a place for a business meeting or intimate conversation...
Amazing food, attentive service overall great experience!
Guacamole is awesome, I've tried them all and I'm impressed every time. $14 is a little high priced for the chicken tacos as they are satisfactory but not exemplary, but the quality of meat in the steak tacos and the way they were prepared was excellent.
My favorite restaurant in Philly hands down. I love it here.
A+. Server was superb in every aspect. Great recommendations for apps. Felt like we were regulars even though it was our first time. Will be back!
Food was excellent, but the service was poor. We felt rushed from beginning to end.
The service, food and beverages were excellent and what we have always expected from El Vez. Always a great time to remember.
