Great food, awesome atmosphere! A bit loud but appropriate for the setting. Would recommend for a girls night out.
It was my first time in Philly and El Vez will be deeply mossed when I go home. Great service, awesome food! Absolutely great experience!
We love El Vez, but were a little frustrated that we didn't get seated until about 20 mins after our scheduled reservation.
Lunch during the Flower Show girls Weekend - great food and unique atmosphere!
Service was slow but it was nice
El Vez is very delicious and have the best margaritas in the city
Came in for lunch with some colleagues last week and loved it. I forgot they had such a great lunch special (two items and a soda for $17). I ordered the salad with the burrito. When the salad came out, I quickly realized I would not be finishing my burrito. The salad was a great portion and it was delicious. The few bites of my burrito I did manage to eat were fantastic. Definitely will be back.
Good food, fun atmosphere. Excellent frozen blood orange margarita. Waiter was wonderful and very efficient. Comfortable chairs make you linger over dinner. Weird bathroom. Didn't "go" with the rest of the restaurant.
Staff mtg for a conference
My friends and I loved our experience at El Vez. The food, service and atmosphere were all top notch! We shall return!
Exceedingly loud bar noise.
We had a group of four at an adjoining table - unacceptable public behavior - shouting, hooting, over the top, probably drunk - management did nothing after we complained - after a number of visits, this was the worst atmosphere we ever encountered - sad considering the excellent cuisine - we probably won’t return.
The food was really great and the portions were quite large, especially the guacamole and chips. The waitress was very nice as well.
We love the guacamole This time try there versions and still the original is our favorite. Food was good but it’s expensive for Mexican food. Excellent server
Love going here. Guacamole excellent. We had a great table - seated at a round booth
A must-stop whenever you visit Philly! Great good, awesome atmosphere!
I was not impressed by the service. The food came very late and they brought the wrong meal for my child. The waitress was not detail oriented. I kept asking for silverware... It was my birthday, so at the end of the dinner they brought a small desert but the waitress has literally thrown the plate on the table with a very rude attitude (she was another waitress). I think charging for chips and salsa $7 is also expensive, when you get free unlimited chips/salsa for free at many other Mexican restaurants.
Service was slow & chicken tacos were super salty—yuck! Margaritas were good, but overpriced at $10. My love affair with El Vez is over.
Everyone in our party though the food was perfect. 100% we will be theee again.
The menu had a great variety. We had vegans dining with us, and they called the menu “life changing”. 😊
A birthday dinner
I went to El Vez for my birthday dinner celebration with my wife. The atmosphere is energetic and fun. We started with the traditional guac and margaritas. Super delicious and great to munch on while you wait for your main platter. For our main dish, we each had the taco sampler. This provided a great taste of a variety of El Vez's tacos. At the end of our meal, our server had some surprise churros with a candle for my birthday. Very much appreciated!
I really enjoyed it and highly suggest dining here to anyone.
Great food great times
Everything was great as usual but the service seemed to be moving ahead of our pace. Things were removed before we were finished without asking and things were forgotten with us needing to ask again. Overall we love el Vez and will always be customers but it was an off night.
So good. Everytime. Get the corn cob. Get the mahi mahi tacos.
Service, drinks, and food were all great. Look forward to getting back soon and trying more on the menu.
Great environment and great food!
Food and service was amazing! We will definitely visit when we return to Philly!
Went for dinner but ordered several starters and Drinks. By the time it was time to order dinner we decided to continue to enjoy what we already had. Cant wait to go back and eat dinner!
always good. i recommend the vegetatian enchiladas ! and the guacamole. consistently great.
It was great as always
fantastic food! great drinks!
It really sucks to have to give this place a low rating considering the food is amazing. This is our second time visiting, we come to Philly once a year for a jewelry show and we LOVED it so much last year that we couldn’t wait to come back. That being said, we will NEVER be going back again. We sat down, and were enjoying our appetizer when I move my leg and realize there is a HUGE wad of gum stuck to my pants leg from under the table. When we alerted our server and asked for a towel he just said ‘Oh I’m sorry’, very insincerely and threw us a towel. Then he went to talk about is to his manager. We tried to dismiss it and continue our dinner, they cleared our forks accidentally and when I asked for another the manager brought me a new one and put it on the table. It was COVERED in dry, crusty food. I thought it was a joke. We told him and he gave me a clean one and apologized. We took pictures of the gum hanging from underneath our table and showed the waiter to which he replied ‘I can’t control what other people do’ and walked away rolling his eyes. They gave us free churros as if that was supposed to make up for the rude service. The disgusting gum could’ve been overlooked, the crusty fork could’ve been overlooked but the poor service could not. They really need customer service training ASAP.
Excellent. Salsas incredible flavor. Red Chile Chicken Enchiladas out of this world.
Amazing food and drinks but the seating was a little too close for my tastes.
Early Saturday evening with a party of six. Sat us immediately, food and service were excellent.
We came to El Vez to celebrate Valentine’s/anniversary. It was the Friday after a Wednesday Valentine’s Day so it was pretty crowded. I had the el Vez margarita but I added jalapeño to make it spicy.. it was great! We got the de la Hoya guacamole which was delicious and way more than 2 people could eat. I got the Mexican chopped salad with shrimp which was good but slightly under dressed. Overall the food was great and the service was awesome. A little louder than I imagined but still a fun night!
We celebrated Valentine’s Day here, the day after Valentine’s Day. The service was fast, and efficient. The food was absolutely amazing. We got the Macho Nachos and the two meat taco combo (beef and chicken). We will definitely be returning!
