Peter, waiter, made the experience worthwhile. Very attentive even tho the restaurant was full.
Great dinner on the back patio. Food and margaritas were delicious as usual!
Food was below average especially for the price. Not planning on going back
Very nice server. Food was excellent. Thank you!
Great vibe, great drinks, great food and great service!
great place, great food, fair prices, nice atmosphere. Would recommend.
Perfect for taco Tuesday date night. The back patio outdoor seating was so intimate. Server was friendly and attentive. Tacos were good. Margs we’re delicious.
The tropical margarita was so damn good ! I loved the service & the food.
Pretty awesome experience. Only complaint was that I went with my family and there was a song playing that kept dropping f-bombs. I mean I get that it’s something they’ll hear eventually but they’re still little. But overall it was a very good restaurant.
One of the best restaurants in Fairmount area at Philadelphia. Great for any occasion. Peter was the best server ever.
Very good queso and outdoor area is super cute!
The hostess was extremely professional and kind!!!!
Drinks were pretty good.
Service was very good.
Food was just ok, felt like a lot of cheap ingredients. Esquites tasted like it used canned corn, the chips in the nachos were the super thin cheap kind that and way too salty.
We saw a mouse in the dinning area.
This spot was really good and rather surprising. I expected a neighborhood spot, but it was destination worthy. We easily found parking nearby and everything was great. We did sit outside and got a few mosquito bites though!
Great experience and delicious food! Ambiance was very nice!
Very good carnitas
The service and food was good. The customer service excellent. Everyone was very attentive to my disabled friend.
The back room was attractive but too noisy for conversation.
You excel in CS.
Amazing experience! Our waiter was THE best and the food was phenomenal. Can’t wait to go back!
Got a little busy and wait staff seemed overwhelmed. Overall okay, but would have been nice to get a chance to order 2nd drink ;-)
We tend to come here when wee are in the area - this time was after a day at The Art Museum. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Food is very good with some interesting twists on the menu. A wonderful time dining.
Food was ok, nothing special. Had to wait 15-20 after being seated to see our waiter. We sat outside and saw three mice running around. It’s possible it’s not the restaurant’s fault but the outside area Is enclosed and they did not make any efforts to get rid of them. The door to the restaurant was open and they could have easily ran in. It was a very jarring experience and none of the outside patrons could truly enjoy themselves with mice running around.
The foods were legit!
Food was superb and service excellent! We sat in the outdoor seating in the courtyard. Much quieter and comfy there. Will be going back!
Significant delays, delay getting seated, delay ordering, delay in food arriving, no one came to check on us or refill water, finally tracked someone down to pay after waiting for quite a while after finishing. Maybe consider an app that allows guests to order and pay using the QR code to lessen burden on servers?
Loved everything about the experience. Food was phenomenal and the service was great. Great HH menu.
Food was great, ambiance was really nice. The server was very friendly and nice just wish they were a little more attentive they only checked on our table once when the food dropped. We had to ask another server for more drinks.
Food, ambiance and service were great. A nice gem of a restaurant. Will definitely go back.
I was looking forward to eating here all week, and I had not been out due to the pandemic. I couldn't wait to try the Sangria, but when I ordered, I was told they were out. So dissapointing.
What I'm most disappointed in is the order of Esquites (served off the cob); that implies that corn is cut from a fresh ear of corn, but instead, I received a can of corn dumped into a bowl that still had the water from the pot of corn it was heated from. A quick drain could have at least hidden the fact that the corn was from a can.
I think we need to give them time to get back the quality they had before the Pandemic. Servers were still friendly and great, everyone was very nice, and we didn't wait long at all for food.
noise made it difficult to hear dinner partner. Food was not worth returning for
We first visited the restaurant in Fort Washington a few years back. We discovered the location on Fairmount earlier this year. The restaurants are comparable distance but the Fairmount location has become our go to.
The food and service have been excellent every time. Food is fresh and flavorful.
The city location is vibrant, I guess, or one could say loud. It holds the noise too much, which is my sole complaint.
Special seared tune tacos were delish. Thank you to our server - Petre - who recommended them.
Cantina Feliz was good! We had last minute reservations and were seated right away. It was a Friday night and understandably swamped. All the food was good. The kitchen was much faster than the bar - the Feliz Margs took a long time to make it to the table, but the food was out in less than fifteen minutes.
Consistently great! Esquites guac 🥰will be back!!
Always fabulous! Will and his crew rock! The food is just great!
Our server was most accomodating. Nachos are the best ever had!
The food was great, service was amazing, and we really enjoyed our experience. My only concern is that the tables were placed soo close together. I get the whole "no strict COVID19" social distancing methods being required most places. But let's not forget how very real this pandemic has been. I would've liked a little more space between the tables, but aside from that, we were pleased.
I had high hopes after reading the reviews. The food was bland; nothing tasted particularly distinctive. The tortillas were stale that came with the guacamole. I won’t dine here again. The service was good.
My one complaint was I ordered 3 Mahi tacos and only got 2. They were very very busy and I was only charged for 2,but……
Servers were all super friendly and knowledgeable about the menu! The interior is beautiful and the space is amazing for indoor or outdoor dining.
Service excellent. A bit messy & unorganized upon walking in. Seemed somewhat cluttered. Back porch Outside was nicer. Staff was excellent. Food was goood. Nachos w short rib / brisket was deee-lish. Sweet plantain were amazing, along with homemade sauces. Black beans lacked flavor along with the Baja fish tacos. Over pretty good. I would eat there again
