Mexican / Southwestern | Center City, Philadelphia

Overall, I've always enjoyed El Vez. The food is always good and the ambiance is lively. If the review is based purely on food then it would be hands down 5 stars. I had to take off a star because I was very disappointed about the rushed service and my friend not getting a dessert with a candle on her 30th bday. I specifically stated that this dinner was for a bday when I placed the reservations and I spoke to the hostess prior to my friend arriving. The hostess rushed me off but assured me that my friend would get some churros with a candle. If you're not going to do it, then why say you will and rush me off? It's likely because they were busy and forgot but it was disappointing to my friends and I and they rushed us out immediately after we finished our food and drinks. It's not the end of the world and I would probably still come back, but I wouldn't recommend this place for special occasions. More

Great vegan and vegetarian food, extremely friendly and attentive waitstaff! We were pleased with the variety of choices. There are some weird translations of some dishes, so you get things like "shredded protein" or "glutinous" etc., but that just adds to the charm of the place. I ordered a spicy dish and it wasn't spicy at all, which was disappointing, plus a side dish of cucumbers were very tough with thick skin, so that's why they're only getting 4 stars, but other food that came to the table was amazing. I will eat there again! (And again... and again...) More

If you need a good place to eat near the Kimmel Center, then this is it. Reasonable parking at 13th and Juniper, less than a 5 min walk from the Kimmel Center. The food is very good if not outstanding. Servings are large enough to feed 2-3. It falls off a little with service. It's not like the people are bad or rude--in fact, they're quite polite. But they did disappear for basic stuff like water and napkins. Wasn't a deal breaker, bc I loved the food so much, and my whole family loved the food. But don't go here and be in a hurry, bc then you might be a little disappointed. Less than $200 for 6 people is a bargain in Philly!! More

Discover Center City

The whole world should knows that there’s more to the diverse dining scene of Center City than cheesesteaks and hoagies. Israeli, Mexican, Japanese and a melting pot of other cuisines are dished up daily in the shadow of the Liberty Bell. French bistros are becoming as commonplace as Italian delis. If you haven’t tried black truffle pizza, what’s stopping you? Whether it’s a cocoa-cured rack of lamb or a vegan wood-roasted carrot that you’re craving, Center City likely has it. Fine dining establishments and casual rooftop bars co-exist in perfect harmony, and top chefs collaborate rather than compete. By the way, the iconic cheesesteaks and hoagies aren't bad either.
