Food was delicious, restaurant was small so be sure to make reservations. The only downside to the small part is your sharing conversations with the people next to you. Food was worth it though:)

Horrible ! They are rude .
Didn’t acknowledge us for 20 minutes and then proceeded to not seat us . They do not have open table but still don’t take it off here . Then are mean about it .

FYI they don’t take opentable anymore. Luckily we were the last people without a reservation through the restaurant to be seating and it was only 7:30pm. They turned down everyone else after us who reserved through opentable.

My boyfriend and I went here last week on a Sunday. They had a cute outside seating area that we would have taken advantage of if it wasn't cold out. This restaurant is BYOB and upon arriving our waiter got us an ice bucket, some wine glasses, and opened up our wine for us. The place is very cozy and romantic. The food is delicious. We got empanadas that were awesome. My boyfriend got steak and I got a shrimp dish. The seafood was very fresh and he really enjoyed his meal. The portions were big too. I would defiantly go back to this place, either on another date night or just with a couple girlfriends.

Always a delicious and authentic Mexican meal at Las Cazuelas. We keep returning because it's SO tasty. My favorite are the enchiladas mole- SO yummy and the mole is very much like the real deal in Oaxaca!!
The service was excellent and it's also a BYOB and they'll provide a choice of 3 fruit mixers for tequila if you bring it.
They usually have a deal running on Groupon but not this time. That's ok because it's very reasonably priced!?

I went here on an impromptu date with my boyfriend. The food was amazing. We shared the shrimp ceviche as an appetizer along with the chips and green salsa. My boyfriend had the enchiladas de mole which had a nice level of spice and contained moist and juicy chicken inside. I had the enchiladas de congrejo which are probably the best I've ever had. The fact that it is BYO just adds to the value factor. We will definitely be back.

Awesome food as usual! Love coming to this little neighborhood gem. Sometimes we can get in without a reservation but this last time they were running at full capacity so it's better to call ahead. The wait staff were great. They are always accommodating. It was on the louder side during this last visit because of a few parties of 10+ (College- aged birthday partiers, enough said) but usually this is not the case. They are good for groups or for date nights. It's BYOB, and their pitchers of margaritas are great! Look forward to coming back again.

I used to love this place, but the last few year the quality of the food has gone down some and the service has gone down tremendously. I made a reservation for five people four hours a head of time but when we got there, there was no table for five available for a half hour. It took over 20 minutes for anyone to even bring us water. We felt ignored and it was so loud we couldn't hear each other. This is the second time I have had extremely slow service. You need better trained hosts and more wait staff.

I have been in Las Cazuelas before for another business dinner which is why I choose the location. The service was good, and our waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable allowing one of our business associate to taste the Mole since he has never had it before. I would say they need to work on their timing as they interrupted the flow of our conversation and did not acknowledge the interruption make it a little frustrating, but other than that it was great. I will visit it again and will certainly recommend to others.

This place was too pricey for mediocre food. The white rice that came with my dish with the crab enchilada was undercook and enchilada it self was very small for such an expensive dish.

It was better last time but still worth coming back. They didn't have our table even with the reservation and it took a while to be seated. The food was fine in some dishes bu the taco plates were very plain.
Still an authentic mexican restaurant.

We've been going to Las Cazuelas since it opened almost 20 years ago. You don't stay around that long on the highly competitive Philly restaurant scene unless you really deserve it - and Las Cazuelas truly does, because it's that good. The food is authentic, not the generic stuff of most "Mexican restaurants". Their guacamole is great, of course. But where else can you get cactus stem tacos?? The mole poblano is a huge chicken breast with a wonderfully rich mole that's neither sweet nor heavy - it's a sauce that punches well above its weight! The shrimp ceviche was fabulous, and my wife loved her arroz con pollo. The huitlacoche tacos (corn smut & onions!) were another delicious example of food you can't get elsewhere around here. This is a unique and special place, and we love it!

Wish we were given a better seat. We were nearly in the kitchen making conversation impossible and the view less than attractive. Food was excellent! Waiter very patient and extremely helpful. Only criticism (and this is minor), wish the tortilla chips for the table were warm.

The taquitos and apps are the way to go. The entrees are small for the price they charge and didn't really wow me and my boyfriend. We got the shrimp chipotle entree and it just tasted like marinara sauce. The tacos were very delicious and good price! Also know it's BYOB for anyone who didn't read the details like me.
