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.
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.
El Vez never disappoints! The guacamole and specialty margaritas are the best I've had!
Dinner before show
The service at El Vez is top notch.
took my boyfriend for his 21st birthday it was great food and they made him some great drinks! awesome time
Nothing special. Poor service at front door. Waitress very nice. Food mediocre at best . Not up to par with a starr restaurant
Server was polite, but not terribly friendly and moved a bit like a bull in a china shop, clearing away dishes quickly and loudly- almost as a hint to hurry up, finish and be on our way. The food was excellent- some of the best Mexican anywhere. A bit hard to enjoy yourself as it is a large open space and very loud. We had to yell to carry on a conversation.
Everything is amazing!! Cocktails and food! Fun ambiance too!
Had a great meal on a normal Sunday
Amazing! Guac is the best I've ever had. Sampler tacos is the way to go, a tasting of all the best. Margaritas are fantastic... only ones I've had that are comparable are in Mexico. They do it right at this place. Can't wait to go back.
My husband who always finishes his meals and mine was full and satisfied with his chicken tacos! And that's three tacos. The food was simply amazingly delicious. We had two pitchers of margaritas and both choices were tasty. We are very picky when it comes to maragritas but El Vez didn't let us down! The service was quick and efficient, although not very personable. Server could have been having a bad night so we get it. Its a must if you are in philly to eat at El Vez.
Food and service were great
Easy and fun
Loved everything at El Vez!! Especially the guacamole & cocktails. Our waiter was pleasant, professional and very knowledgeable. Everything was outstanding!
Service and food was amazing. Thanks. Kristi was our server and she was prompt and attentive.
Staff was kind and courteous.. been there MANY times. Tonight was different. Drinks and food were not as good as it has been before. Very disappointed.
Went to see Lorde at Wells Fargo and wanted good Mexican food. Great location right near city hall and other fun shops.
One word: wonderful !!
Great food!! I went in thinking it would be over price Mexican food and I’m glad to say I was wrong possibly the best Mexican food restaurant I have had the pleasure to attend.
The food was amazing. We all left super full. Felt a little rushed because they were busy but other than that no real complaints. I’d definitely go back.
Flavors so fresh and so delicious!
Amazing food. Amazing drinks. My favorite spot
It was great!! Our waitress was so helpful and patient. I will definitely return next time I am in the city!
My family and I love El’Vez so whenever we get to the city it’s always a must on our list. Great food and service!
It was very packed but the food was worth the wait.
Had a great time, food was delicious. myself and my friends really enjoyed the dinner and drinks
Chicken Tacos delicious and the serving size is just right for lunch. The soup while also first rate could of been offered in two sizes- cup or bowl. The same could be said for the salad choice in the special meal-the portion was just too big to be paired with the other options.
Everything was great,except the chiken tacos werent as good as i hoped.dry
