A family favorite. Great service, great atmosphere, amazing food!
3/4 of us are GF so being able to have everything on the menu is fantastic! If you aren’t GF-you won’t miss it. Highly recommend the baby back ribs!

The food was quite good- we had guacamole with pork, and several of the small tacos. The drinks were also amazing! The service was just very odd, not in a good way. Our waiter seemed like he didn't really want to be there, and he was hard to understand. The food came out so quickly that we were in and out within 30-45 minutes, and our server kept taking things away before we were done (food, silverware, drink). He asked us how everything was, so quickly, that my husband didn't have a chance to order another taco. When I asked to take the leftover guacamole/chips/salsa home, he brought the containers for us to fill ourselves- I asked for a spoon to put it in the container and he scoffed and said "you can just do it like this" and scooped some of it for us with a chip. Then he just walked off with the rest of the bowl! My husband went to the restroom and when he came back his drink was gone even though it wasn't empty...We would have stayed for another drink, but by then we just wanted to get out of there! I still recommend the restaurant, for the food- but this guy needs a vacation!

The service was top notch!!! This is not run of the mill
Mexican food, it’s more like gourmet. And high end for sure. Something for everyone. Try the grilled pulpo and braised ribs. In fact, try everything! We were too full for desert but plan on saving room for that next time. Amazing array of tequila too.

The food at Amuleto is always delicious and comforting. Service is top rate and you feel very welcome. Definitely try their chicken mole and splurge on calories with the guacamole with pork belly. You can’t go wrong with any of their menu choices. Of course the tequila selections are many and varied but get a classic Cadillac margarita to start your meal.

The shrimp Diablo is excellent, and others loved the shrimp with green salsa. Drinks inventive and v good. We ate outdoors, which was heated, but there tends to be a lot of street noise (fire truck etc). Overall we had a great time, really enjoyed the meal.

Having grown up on the Mexican border, I'm fussy about Mexican food. Amuleto's is a local favorite. Great choices of small plates and large plates. Big selection of mescal and tequila, draft Mexican beers. A large staff (even during these days of understaffed restaurants) keeps everything going smoothly.

Consistently delish! The margs are outrageous - guac so fresh. The simplest salad alway the freshest ingredients - topped with perfectly seasoned and cooked tuna. The octopus and mushroom sounds like an odd pair but insane! A must! Seafood enchiladas can't be beat. Any taco is a great choice. Never have room for dessert so cannot comment. Service is the best - always.

We enjoyed Amuleto. The service was excellent, very attentive servers. The fried plantain appetizer was adequate, while the mussels with chorizo were excellent. The pollo con mole was cooked to perfection and the mole was good. The side dish of rice could have been more interesting but it was ok. Overall a good dinner.

Amuleto is the best Mexican restaurant in the Boston area in my opinion. You can't go wrong, but some personal favorites are:

-Don Julio margarita
-Baby back ribs
-Enchiladas with chicken and mole

Not our favorite place. We sat outdoors at a "table" that was big enough for cocktails and an appetizer. The drinks were average and overpriced. Id give the food a C and it was Way Overpriced. The waiter was inattentive and slow. Based on the overpriced and poor quality of the food, we will not be going back.

We've been here many times, and it's always nicely prepared fresh food. My only complaint this time was that they didn't have the catch of the day (halibut), so I had to substitute grilled squid. But that was excellent, nicely cooked and tender.

This is NOT Tex-Mex cuisine; it is authentic Mexican food. The food was very good, with great presentation. We visited on a weeknight when the trade was slow, but the service was still very slow - long waits between seeing our server.

Flavorful and unique preparations. The mole poblano sauce
is excellent. Traditional beans and rice accompaniments,
good but not remarkable. A good assortment of less usual
dishes from the more usual Tex / Mex style in our area, but
enchilados (good) and tacos (not tried) are on the menu for
those more comfortable with the familiar.

The entire experience was excellent! The food was delicious. We ate a number of small plates - including Cev de Pescado, Pilpo Asado (Grilled Octopus), camarones enchipotlados (Shrimp, quinoa, butternut squash puree), Elotes, and shrimp tacos! The highlights were the octopus and Shrimp with quinoa! The service was superb!! Will go back soon!

I think the pandemic labor shortage has had an effect on both the service and the kitchen. We waited a long time for cocktails, our entrees came before our appetizer, the entrees were… okay, and we never got the coffee we had ordered. I think that Saturday night dining out might be a thing we stop doing — I don’t blame the restaurant for being totally overwhelmed. We had eaten there in the before times and it was a very different experience.
