El Vez-Ft. Lauderdale

Pricey for what you get, which is fine but not anything different or special. We spent a lot for an okay meal.
Wonderful food and environment! Defiantly would come again!
My food was awful. It took forever to get a server and a drink. Initially they sent the wrong food and after I sent it back what came was horrendously spicy (not described as spicy in description). This was the only time I haven’t had a good experience here but tonight was truly bad
Good food, service a bit slow.
they say timing is everything. Well, we picked an off night to visit El Vez. They were short staffed and Claudia was covering for someone which meant we didn't talk to anyone for 10 minutes. No water, no menus—nada! She showed up obviously overwhelmed and it showed. Otherwise she was nice. No worries tho, Mike the manager happened to walk by and I mentioned our current situation and he was more than happy to help. Mike is an example of who belongs in the hospitality business...he was quick to respond and from that point on our dinner was trouble free. The food was brought out relatively quickly along with a very nice appetizer that was on-the-house. I should mention everyting we ordered was very good. As well as the drinks. I'd go again, but the host/hostess should be more transparent and let their guests know about what we should expect. Even if that means lack of help and longer wait times for the essentials.
Went for happy hour on a balmy evening. Sat outside and could not have been better. Half price margarita and great prices on lots of other dishes. View is lovely.
We enjoyed this Restaurant so much we ate here 2 nights on a row..... Great service and fantastic food and Drink options....... Glad we gave it a try and we will for sure be back next time we are in Ft Lauderdale
Consistent food and service at this waterfront spot in the W Hotel. Not cheap, but worth it. Try to get an outside seat if weather permits.
Excellent food, but service was indifferent at best.
Restaurant is open to the ocean side which,on a very windy night made eating out front or even sitting at the bar uncomfortable. The bartender did little to make us feel welcome
We requested and received a table inside. Our server clearly wanted to be doing anything except working at El Vez.
Unfortunate,in that the salsas; nachos and steak were outstanding.
Food was good but wasn’t a lot for what it costs. Menu was also very limited compared to Philadelphia location. Probably wouldn’t return.
Very good chicken tacos. Guacamole good too.
Bad service. Ok food. No buzzers. A sad waitress. All around meh.
Food was very good. Service was great. Beautiful views.
All of the staff could care less we were dining there. No urgency and everyone was rude. Luckily the food was tasty or we would have left before dinner concluded
It was just ok. Very small menu so hope you want tacos or enchiladas. Just wasn’t our thing.
Everything was great except they had all of the outside doors open and it was way to windy and cold for that. Everyone at the table was freezing!
Excellent breakfast and dinner! Every dish came out perfect. They accommodated every substitution request and every egg came out cooked just right! Unimposing but attentive service and a really fun atmosphere! Looking forward to coming back.
Beautiful experience. Wonderful waiter. Incredible view. Delicious food.
Food was great, though small portions for the price. Location was also very good. Service was subpar. Waited over half an hour before anyone came to our table to even ask about drink orders. Someone else brought our food out so we didn’t even see our waitress until we were finished with our meal and waiting to pay.
Good place. Good food. Near the beach for a great price.
We have been going back for the same meal since they opened. Tonight the food was okay at best. If tonight were the first time we went, we would have never gone back or raved to our friends about the place. Maybe an off night for them...
Exceptional service and great food. I was in Ft Lauderdale for 4 days and I HAD to eat there each day.....addicting!!
This is our 4th visit to El Vez and the food is awesome. We enjoyed ourselves but we experienced slow service once we were seated. After 5 min a server came by and gave us water and said she would send someone to get our drinks. Needless to say, that was another long wait. Finally we were offered drinks and then we ordered food. Not a big deal and the food and drinks were worth the wait. Always a great meal and we enjoy the ambiance.......
My first visit I had the nacho mama and chopped salad. Both were outstanding. The place has a cool vibe with indoor and outdoor dining. The classic margarita was delicious. I returned for breakfast and had the best Huevos Rancheros. I highly recommend this place!
We waited for about 40 mins upon arrival despite having a reservation. Food was ok, nothing special and service subpar. If you are in for a great dinner, there are probably better options around. Now if you are there merely for drinks and chatting with a larger group where food/service is not that relevant, perhaps you would enjoy it more. The ambiance is nice and vibrant.
This is a very popular restaurant in the W Hotel, but we absolutely love it! Margaritas are great and the Macho Nachos are very unique and terrific. Ceviche is fresh and delightful, guacamole and chips (could upgrade the chips) as well as their 3-way salsas are wonderful. Since it is noisy, we like to sit in a both, even if there are 4 of us, so we can have a real conversation. Valet parking is super easy and the guys are really nice.
We are locals, at least in the winter, and this is one of our favorite restaurants. It offers a unique menu and is worth trying.
The Macho Nachos with pulled pork were arrainged on a flat pan like a pizza and were just outstanding. Best thing we had was the carnitas taos, the second best was the black bean encheladias. Over all we had a great time with good food.
Good was outstanding and service was spot on
Great location on the water, good service. Bar service just fair, seemed at times annoyed to get drinks.
A great location but a big disappointment in terms of food, service and ambiance.
We have visited several times and always feel the service could be so much better! The food is good though.
We dined at El Vez on NYE. Very disappointed. Very limited menu and felt very rushed. Philadelphia’s El Vez is much better!
New Years eve
Great food in a great location!
Maybe a bit too loud?
Restaurant did not Honor our reservation and asked us to wait for an hour as they were "busy" and we were with two small kids. They finally gave us a table after 20 mins of arguing with us
Great food! Brunch menu excellent
The food was creative and the location right across from the beach is great
Waiter was rude, should try and keep his comments when rude to himself, thought he was funny but was rather offensive
Poor service as waitress did not bring the items requested. Never brought my beer. Charged extra 3.00 for tiny cups of shredded cheese for steak for two. The steak wasn’t skirt steak and was terrible. No sides with the meal and again charged extra for one side. Finally the waitress brought us the wrong check. Won’t go back.
