The food was delicious
The food was great especially considering the price and vegetarian friendly
Great experience. The street tacos and margaritas were fabulous, the street corn the best ever. I like a sweeter margarita so they added a little simple syrup which made it perfect!!! Highly recommend ❤️
Awesome spot with great cocktails and service from Morgan. Some of the best tacos you can find in NOLA. Would go back.
Delicious & great margaritas!
Great ambience and great Mexican fare. We stuck with Taco's and street corn and both were fresh, well flavored and authentic tasting. The service was excellent.
Fabulous hidden gem. Great apps, tacos and sides. My friends enjoyed their margs. Don’t miss out.
Food was lukewarm. One server for entire dining room. Server charged us gratuity even though we under the min group size - caused us to double tip and get the manager to fix it. Order didn't come out correct.
Wonderful food and attentive staff
Great food and servixe
The food was fabulous; the wait staff excellent; the value high. This was a much, much better meal at half the price of some of the other restaurants we went to and we highly recommend it
Visiting NOLA and best food we had while here. The tacos were amazing as well as the drinks and salsas. We had Baja fish, shrimp and chicken tacos at our table and they were all excellent! I cannot believe this place was not packed! It ihas such amazing food and a great value for the area!! Our server was excellent and we cannot wait to return one day!!
Great food, drinks and ambience. Service was excellent!
Great food and excellent hospitality
The 1st time we went there the food was really good so we decided that we would bring family in that were visiting from out of town. I made a reservation on OpenTable for July 3. We showed up and they were closed. Not sure if it was because of the holiday but it was pretty annoying that we were able to make a reservation and then show up and they weren’t open. They didn’t even list on social media that they were not going to be open.
We always love dinner at Espiritu! Wish there were more options for vegans/vegetarians :).
Great happy hour near the business district. Thanks for a fantastic time!
Food was excellent
The food is fresh and authentic. The service was outstanding! I enjoyed myself immensely.
The food was delish! We were there for an early dinner and the staff were friendly and efficient.
Hidden neighborhood gem with innovative cocktails. Serious about mezcal. Authentic and warm in service and ambience.
Excellent food and service
Went on a Friday night with my boyfriend. There wasn’t too many people when we got there, so it was fairly quiet. The waitress and bartender were both great and super fun and friendly. The creole queso and tacos were delicious and the drinks are outstanding. I was surprised at how reasonably priced everything was, especially for the Warehouse District. Definitely going back!
Great. Really great. Really really great.
I always love dining at Espiritu. The food is always fabulous, and the chef is constantly coming up with new creations. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. I definitely recommend this place. And the cocktail creations are fabulous as well, when dining dining during the work day.
Our server was amazing and connected us with another server that knew more about the mezcal. They were both very friendly and informative. Food was great. Some items definitely better priced than others. Cocktails were amazing. Very fun experience.
Delicious tacos and very nice service.
The tacos were amazing! And the sandwich bread was not like any other! Flaky and not thick! Nice little off the beat restaurant!!!!
Thank you so much! Glad you liked our tacos and tortas. Hope to see you again soon.
It was good felt safe

Absolutely delicious food! Some of the best tacos I’ve ever had.
This place is amazing!! Casual, cool and the food is outstanding!
I eat here frequently and it’s my fav to get tacos!! So delicious! The staff very friendly and attentive!
Really great specialty cocktails and margaritas so good!!
Wow!!! This is dining at its BEST!!! 5 stars across the board. The atmosphere is open yet cozy. The decor is earthy and artistic. The service impeccable. No matter the title of the employee they all acknowledged the guests with a hello a checkin or a direct smile. Tomatillo salsa bright and flavorful. Guacamole and ceviche fresh with flavor. The Midnight Mariachi cocktail, I wish I could have daily. An amazing experience I look forward to sharing with others and enjoying again on my return to New Orleans!
Delicious. Waitress was very sweet. Great margaritas
The food was excellent and the service was top notch as well. It was our first time there and we will definitely recommend to friends and family and we will be back again. Great place
