It's nice to have gluten free options, but, would also be nice to have SOME options with gluten, especially for those of us who love desserts. Flan and flan-like desserts are not everyone's cup of tea.....how about a tres leches cake???

Amuleto is always superb! My son and I had tacos. They were all fantastic, but the chicken tinga and barbacoa were exceptional. The service, as always, was great!

This is my third visit to this creative and sophisticated Mexican outpost on Waltham's culinarily-trending Moody Street, which is now closed to traffic for optimum outdoor dining. Great scene on a warm May evening, with lights and music making every table a party. The cocktails were potent, our server was fast and friendly, and altho our al fresco experience took place on a busy corner, we felt cocooned in the grassy area under the tent. All the food was sooooooo much better than any other "Mexican" restaurant in greater Boston and the value is there, too. I am reminded to come here more often ...

Unfortunately nothing was to our taste. The margarita's tasted like plastic. The guacamole was way over salted, our 6 tacos ranged from ok to unpalatable. The salsa was bland. Chips left a bad taste. Wait people were fine..but hard to find when we wanted our check. Coming from Texas we are picky about our Mexican food and in the past have found Amuleto to be better...but we won't be going again.

Went Saturday night for Mother’s Day. Sat outside at front Patio. It was comfortable and followed Covid protocol. There were standing heaters as well as ceiling mounted ones. The margarita drinks are delicious. Great guacamole and the salsa there is smoky and delicious!
Food was great. Love the Camerones Diablo. Sauce is amazing, shrimp was cooked perfectly and the cilantro rice is really tasty! We also love the ribs in tamarind sauce! Our favorite app! Even indulged in the desserts. Flan was our favorite! One of our favorite restaurants of all time! Our waiter was great as well!!! So glad they are surviving covid!

A lovely high-end Moody Street dining experience. The food is tasty with fresh and unusual spice profiles. Cocktail list is unusual and creative. As a native of the southwestern US, my date complimented the decor and its blend of sophistication and authenticity. Would definitely recommend this place for a romantic night out, or to entertain visiting guests. A large outdoor area beneath a tent provides room for spaced dining outdoors if desired.

We came to Amuleto to celebrate the relaxing of Covid regulations. We are in the tent and it was quite fine. The food was fantastic and our server was (is) charming. We haven’t stop raving about the occasion.

We have been here before, it’s always been great. This time we were disappointed in the food; while the ceviche was outstanding, the tacos were very average. We ordered 3 different kinds, none were great. We will try again! Always excellent service, nice people.

It was a little chilly but we sat outside in the back patio and it was wonderful. The staff was so warm and friendly, we got their recommendation for dishes and each one was great. We got "small dishes": 3 little tamales with different mole sauces; delicious baby back ribs; and a mixed plate of enchiladas. Excellent margaritas (one with mezcal) as well. We will definitely be back - outside of course. Good distancing and safety measures as well.

The food here is incredible. Everything tastes homemade and you can taste the difference. From the hand made corn tortillas to the ceviche and queso fundido, all incredible. A must try if you’re in the area. I will be visiting again from Salem for their home made tortillas.

2.5 stars. The restaurant had lovely ambience and structured well to handle covid. Service was swift and courteous. Tacos unfortunately, didn't measure up; only single tortilla (which made for a soggy bottom) and the pork in taco al pastor was dried - didn't justify the high price tag. Overall, a little below average experience.

Place is great. Great food, tequilla selection is unmatched and the service is great. The decor and ambience is super cool as well. This place isn't far from my house and I'm upset I haven't discovered this place earlier.
