Beautiful cinco de Mayo. Super nice staff worth the visit :)
We had to wait past our reservation time....Pitcher marg was watered down and not that good unfortunately. Rice and Beans didn’t have any taste. We love El Vez in Philly... this was not the best location
Staff crushed it! Great place with a solid Happy Hour
Service was the worst we had ever seen thankfully the manager step up to save the day
food was terrible. I have eaten here numerous times and the food and service has gone downhill.
Always a great spot, the food is flavorful and the ambiance is fantastic!
I rarely take the time to do a written review, but th
Always a great meal and happening place and last night was no exception. Has a very enjoyable evening!
We were hosting a business customer. We frequent El Vez in Philadelphia frequently and love. We had reservations for 6:15 and our table was not ready until almost 6:45. We were served mimosas in plastic cups at the bar. Finally after being seated 30 minutes late, our waiter appeared about 20 minutes later. From that time on our service was few and far between. Towards the end of the meal I had to get up and find him to pay the bill. Food was great..just really disappointed in service, especially when hosting a business guest.
So nice spending time with my best friends at el vez. These are the best nachos in town! My fav restaurant
Hostess ignored us. But the waiter and the food were fantastic!
Best Mexican food of my life! I scant wait to go back!
The food was good, especially my steak tacos, with nicely cooked, nicely seasoned flat iron steak bites. My Queso Fundido was an interesting take on a snack I’ve had before with chips. This one had a too-heavy cheese, over cooked and served with chorizo on soft flour tortillas: it tasted good, but it was too heavy and chewy for the soft tortillas. But that’s better than what it would have been like if it were served as a dip with taco chips. Every chip would have broken into pieces.
Our waiter was attentive, even though he was busy. All the staff was busy, in fact. The place was packed when we first got there, and it’s easy to see that the employees were stretched thin. The crowd was lively and positive. Overall, I like the idea of the place: a reasonably priced restaurant in a “W” Hotel. But the management still has work to do on elements of running the restaurant.
We used to come here every couple weeks but will not be back after this awful experience. The service was horrible and the food was bland. We asked our server and food runner for hot sauce and salt 4 different times and they finally delivered it 35 minutes later. It was very cold and windy so we asked to be moved inside. 20 minutes after our server returned and said no seats were available when at least 15 tables were open. What a disappointment. There are so many other places that have good service and better food. We will be going there now
Great atmosphere with exceptional service.
Menu offers a lot of options.
It’s a good time as well in a casual environment.
Food was pretty bland. I was expecting a lot more flavor since it is a Mexican restaurant. Service was just ok.
Todo muy bueno
Great good and great service!
It was absolutely amazing!
Amazing food, happy hour and great service.
We were staying at the W and could have eaten here every night! The food was excellent and the drinks were delicious. Many days after going to the beach , we would stop in and get chips and salsa and margaritas! The wait staff is friendly and very attentive. We ordered many different things over the course of the week and there wasn’t one thing we didn’t like.
The steak taco were amazing! I would come here with every visit.
Incredible meal. Best we had on our vacation.
So fun ! great frozen margaritas! Friendly and helpful staff! loved It !!! Ps: nachos =amazing life changing talked about them for days dreaming of them always
We had guests in from out of town and asked for a table outside. Not only was it outside, it was in a corner by the railing with a great view of the ocean! Our waiter was outstanding and the food was really good. They discount the parking as well. Everyone from the car valet to the hostess to the waiter and cooks did a great job.
Not even close to quality and taste to El Vez in Philly. Only part of our trip that was a disappointment
Great food, great ambiance outside
One of the best meals I’ve ever had: pollo asada, steak quesadilla, Toni Santana guac
We come to El Vez often and recently the service has gone down significantly. I’ve tried to hold off on this review in the hopes it was a one time occurence. However have not seen improvement. Today was horrible service. Our waiter forgot to give a spoon and never returned to check on us. Finally I asked another waiter for a spoon and he said be right back but never came back. My husband got up and asked someone else and got a spoon. Soup was cold by then. Next we asked for water when they brought the check and took our credit cards, 20 minutes later on water and waiter still has our credit cards. My husband got up and went to the waiter and asked for the water and credit cards. Waiter was not very nice and when he came back still no water and an apology with no sincerity.
A beach club with mexican food. Cool beach vibes. Could use some maintenance work
Server was attentive. Food was tasty. Will be back.
Amazing service & absolutely delicious food!!! Great happy hour deals $5 margs until 7pm. Had Marco as a server and he was fantastic!! Would absolutely recommend and come here again whenever I’m in Fort Lauderdale!! So good.
The nachos were delicious. I got the mahi tacos and I just really didn’t care for them. The service was great and so is the location. I am a dessert gal and all the desserts had something spicey in them which was a disappointment.
We enjoyed our dinner at El Vez. The view is nice and the food was excellent.
Delicious! We loved it so much we went back the next day!!
Marco was fantastic and the food was really tasty!
The drinks were great! Food was average and service was slow.
It was interesting to see a lot of empty tables in the restaurant but still, they could not accommodate our request to start dinner 20 minutes earlier than our reservation. The food was good but not extraordinary for a Mexican restaurant. Kale salad with shrimps and enchiladas were good but I would not recommend steak Quesadilla which was extremely greasy.
Great food and service. Gabbi was an amazing knowledgeable server. Snapper Aguachile and Guacamole were must orders.
