Food was delicious and our server was perfect.
Birthday dinner for my daughter. Nothing special was offered for her.
My husband and I live outside of Philadelphia. We go to our favorite place "EL VEZ every weekend. We know most of the staff and enjoy the food and especially the Blood Orange Margarita drinks.
Fun place to be!
Always a good time. Great service and even better food.
Awesome food! Super quick service and did not have to wait to be seated. Had 8:30 reservations and sat us on time! We will be going back again!!
Not enough time to eat . The time was the only issue
We love this place and eat here every time we come to Philly. It's a good idea to make a reservation since it gets busy.
I felt safe dining outdoors and the service was phenomenal. They asked for our dining experience to exceed no more than an hour and a half, which was no problem with how fast the service was. Food and staff were really great!
There is not one thing I could say bad about El Vez. From the Sangria, margherita, guacamole, tacos, everything is excellent! I’ve probably been to El Vez 30 times in the past 5 years and never walked away disappointed
Drinks, food, and service was 10/10. I would drive to philly just to come here! Amazing!!
Sat outside on Samson St and was quite grotty. Think they need to improve their outdoor dining experience. Food was ok
Celebrated my 32 birthday and our waiter, Max, Is the absolute best!! It was such a pleasure to have him as our waiter my second time visiting. Great food and drinks, never disappointed. Will definitely be coming back sooner than later!
The service and food were exceptional. Our waiter even helped us find an ideal spot for a after dinner walk.
Food was delicious and the atmosphere was amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!!!
I love this place
Best Mexican food I’ve ever had. Unreal flavor, amazing service. Will be back
The food was cold. Frozen drink wasn’t really frozen. I asked for water 3 times.... everyone was nice but it wasn’t great but I get it.
Food quality was top notch! Pricing could be a little better! Kinda expensive for stuff you could get somewhere else cheaper! Ambiance was definitely top notch! Overall i wud say 4.2 out of 5!
Can never go wrong with El Vez. One of our favorites in Center City!
Great as always. Always our go to. But the four pictures of margaritas left all 4 of us in buzzed w bellies full of sugar. That has never happened. So the “pink Cadillac”’crew will have to switch it up
Went with my sister for lunch on a Monday. Good experience. Server was friendly and helpful and patient. We both got margaritas which were tasty. I had the Taco Sampler and my sister just wanted chicken nachos. I demolished mine and my sister's portion was enough for her to have a take out container. I'd go again and try something else.
Always amazing food and service is great!
Amazing as always the only Starr restaurant that is consistently good. Cant go wrong and worth it
Excellent service! Great food!
Excellent service and food and drinks were delicious!
We made a reservation two weeks prior and you would think they would seat us inside. Very disappointed. It was freezing.
Great food and staff
Awesome seating outside. Felt very comfortable, safe and warm on a chilly day.
Love ElVez I will go back over and over and over! The food was off today. I strayed away from what I normally get and was disappointed. Shrimp tacos, corn were cold and not very tasty at all.
Everything great but out booth was by the side entrance and it was a cold day.
Just for staff though.
Amazing wonderful staff! Got my cake iced after I left so it was a great night and great service!
Very good service. Delicious margaritas and nachos.
Excellent food and service.
I suggest you stick to appetizers and drinks at El Vez. I was pretty disappointed with rest of our experience. This is always touted as THE go to spot for Mexican food in Philly. I’ve had poor experiences at Starr Restaurants before with what seems like out of touch management, and yet again, it happened at El Vez. Overall, I was satisfied. The best part of the meal were the Nachos and De La Hoya Guacamole. I could have done without the entree portion. The lamb tacos were dry and flavorless, and carried at $15 price tag for 2 semi par tacos (GO TO SOUTH PHILLY BARBACOA!). My father’s entree (shrimp tacos - also underwhelming) did not come out with the rest of our food, and then took around 15 minutes to finally come out, after the rest of our party was finished our dishes. Not once did a manager come over to even ask how our meal was or to apologize for the delay. Starr restaurant management is arrogant and believes they are doing YOU a service as opposed to being grateful for you patronizing their establishment. Stick to the basics here, and don’t expect much past the appetizers.
Great overall, waitress never asked if we wanted more drinks or refilled our waters.
Food was amazing took a friend for her first time and she loved it
Overall very good experience. Service and food were excellent. Felt very safe dining in the restaurant given the covid protocols.
Waitress Sophia was Fantastic! Our first time to your restaurant and we sat outside in covered space. Was a bit tight on space, but food, drinks and service far made up for having limited table space. Would definitely visit again!!
Food was great and service was amazing. Try the red sangria!
